Talwin is similar to other opioid pain medications. It's a class IIII controlled substance with some potential for abuse. I copied the information below for your convenience.
It is used for treating moderate to severe pain, including before surgery or anesthesia. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Talwin is an opioid (narcotic) analgesic. It works in the brain and nervous system to decrease pain.
Do NOT use Talwin if:
you are allergic to any ingredient in Talwin or to any other codeine- or morphine-related medicine (eg, codeine, oxycodone)
you have severe diarrhea due to antibiotic use (pseudomembranous colitis) or you are taking sodium oxybate (GHB)
Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
