                                                                  pain relievers.


     Well, did you know the Drug Enforcement Agency of the United States (DEA) has busted
     and close over 5000 online pharmacies? Did you know that many online pharmacies sell
     counterfeit medication? Did you know it is a federal crime for you to order prescription
     drugs from outside the United States?


     It is true, online pharmacies are a great source of pain relief medication. This article
     teaches you to order pain medication legally, from within the United States, with a legal
     prescription. It's the only way to go!


     First, the caveats: You cannot legally order medication from outside the United States,
     even if you have a prescription. We always hear about the elderly taking buses to
     Canada to buy cheap medicine. The fact is, as of this writing, this course is illegal. Also,
     you cannot legally order medicine from a pharmacy without a prescription. Many online
     pharmacies (including my own) have physicians on staff who review your medication
     request and write you a prescription if they think it's safe. In addition, NEVER order
     narcotics through the mail. Forget codeine, Tylenol #3, oxycontin, demerol, percodan
     and percocet. You can be charged with a federal crime for buying these substances.
     Lastly, regardless of the medication you buy, be sure to read the package insert (or a
     monograph on my web site). Drugs interact with each other and with your body- the
     package insert will tip you off to potentially dangerous behavior with respect to the
medication you ordered.


The following are quick summaries of common pain relief drugs you can order through
the Internet with very little risk:


Fioricet (butalbital)


Fioricet is a combination drug. It is made up of acetaminophen, caffeine and butalbital.
Acetaminophen is the same medication in Tylenol You know caffeine from coffee (or
even your favorite candy bar.) Butalbital is a mild barbiturate. It relaxes you.


Medical Science does not have an explanation for the reason this combination of drugs
works so well, but the fact is Fioricet (and its generic form butalbital) is highly effective for
tension headache. Presumably, it relaxes the muscles in the head and neck which
typically tighten during tension headaches.. This is the top selling drug at our pharmacy
month after month- it really helps headaches!


Soma (carisoprodol)


Soma is a muscle relaxant. It acts by blocking electrical signals among nerves in the
reticular formation of the brain and in the spinal cord. Carisoprodol, combined with rest
and physical therapy, is prescribed for the short term relief of painful muscle conditions-
particularly muscle spasm (where the muscle tightens and does not relax). Most back
strains result in muscle spasm, so patients find carisoprodol highly effective in relieving
back pain.


Celebrex (celecoxib)


Celebrex is used in the treatment of symptoms of arthritis. This includes joint pain,
stiffness, swelling and inflammation. The medication does not cure arthritis, but does
provide symptomatic relief. It s a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which
relieves pain and inflammation. The drug works by blocking the production of
prostaglandins in the body. Prostaglandins contribute to the pain and swelling associated
with arthritis.


Ultram (tramadol)


Ultram is used for treatment of moderate to severe chronic pain. It binds to the opiod
receptors on nerves (the same mechanism used by narcotics), but it has a far lower
potential for dependency. It's the closest medication to a narcotic you can order legally in
the US online. It is not a NSAID (nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drug) and does not carry
the risk of stomach ulceration and internal bleeding which can accompany the use of
such medications. It is often prescribed for pain associated with shingles, fibromyalgia
and other chronic diseases.


Ulracet


Ultracet is a combination of acetaminophen and tramadol. It is typically prescribed for the
short term (up to five days) relief of moderately severe acute pain. It is often prescribed
for post-surgical pain or after dental procedures.


The ultram mechanism as described above is very similar to the mechanism employed by
narcotics. Acetaminophen of course is the active ingredient in Tylenol. It works by
increasing the threshold to pain (i.e. it takes more pain stimulus to cause the sensation
of pain). These two drugs work by different mechanisms, and they combine to be more
effective than either drug alone.


Pain relief medication can be ordered safely online, but one should exercise appropriate
caution before doing so. Specifically, it's important to determine whether you need to see
a physician before ordering pain medication. If you have a sudden onset of pain which is
not readily explained, you should consult a physician first. If in doubt, go to the
