What Is Reprexain?
Reprexain is a medication prescribed to alleviate short-term moderate to severe pain. This drug consists of an opioid and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-NSAID. The opioid directly impacts how your brain responds to pain, while the anti-inflammatory drug reduces fever and helps with pain management.
Reprexain should only be taken as directed by a doctor. You should not take Reprexain to treat the pain of chronic conditions such as arthritis. This medication is intended for short-term treatment, and misusing this medication can lead to adverse side effects or dependency.
Reprexain is a pain-relief medication for patients who are experiencing moderate to severe pain lasting 10 days or less. This medication contains the opioid hydrocodone and the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-NSAID ibuprofen. These two types of drugs work together to relieve pain.
Hydrocodone attaches to opioid receptors in the brain, which changes your brain’s reaction to pain, thereby increasing your tolerance for pain. Ibuprofen keeps any fever and pain under control. Reprexain is taken orally once every four to six hours as needed to control pain levels. It is recommended that you take Reprexain at the first sign of pain for the medication to work effectively. Suddenly stopping this medication may cause symptoms of withdrawal, and you should never increase your dosage of Reprexain unless directed by your doctor.
The Importance of Aftercare
You may experience minor side effects during Reprexain treatment, such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, or drowsiness. Notify your doctor if these symptoms persist or worsen, as your dosage may need to be updated. Contact your doctor if you experience any rash, itching, swelling, or trouble breathing as these may signal an allergic reaction to the medication.
Always take Reprexain exactly as prescribed by your doctor to avoid any adverse symptoms. Never combine Reprexain with any other medications, especially other pain relievers, to avoid serious symptoms or a possible overdose.
Reprexain misuse can lead to the development of a substance use disorder. You don’t have to suffer in silence any longer. The road to recovery starts with a phone call — make yours today.
