    Pentazocine Tablets AKA- Talwin

    Description: (From WallsRx.com)
    Pentazocine is a potent analgesic which when administered orally in a 50 mg dose appears equivalent in analgesic effect to 60 mg (1 grain) of codeine. Onset of significant analgesia usually occurs between 15 and 30 minutes after oral administration, and duration of action is usually three hours or longer. Onset and duration of action and the degree of pain relief are related both to dose and the severity of pretreatment pain. Pentazocine weakly antagonizes the analgesic effects of morphine and meperidine; in addition, it produces incomplete reversal of cardiovascular, respiratory, and behavioral depression induced by morphine and meperidine. Pentazocine has about 1/50 the antagonistic activity of nalorphine. It also has sedative activity.

    Pentazocine is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Concentrations in plasma coincide closely with the onset, duration, and intensity of analgesia; peak values occur 1 to 3 hours after oral administration. The half-life in plasma is 2 to 3 hours.

    Pentazocine is metabolized in the liver and excreted primarily in the urine. Pentazocine passes into the fetal circulation.

    Info at http://www.drugs.com/MTM/naloxone_and_pentazocine.html

    Pentazocine is in a class of drugs called narcotic analgesics (pain relievers). It relieves pain.
    The combination, naloxone and pentazocine, is used to treat moderate-to-severe pain.
    Naloxone is included in this product only to prevent the abuse of this medication by injection. If this medication is injected, the pentazocine will not have any effect. Furthermore, a severe reaction--possibly death--may occur if this medication is injected alone or in combination with any other substance.
