  • Effectiveness
    None (for pain)
  • Side effects
    Severe
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: napsylate 650 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have become so sensitive to binding agents mixed with pain medications. Since I have been on hospice, the drugs used for palliative care are far more effective in treating pain. Darvocet was upsetting my stomach and I began having a reation to any drug with binding agents, i.e. vicodin. percocet. oxycontin and others.
