Anyone here on Talacen? An old narcotic, but wanted to know if anyone else has tried?

This drug is also know as Talwin. It is a partial agonist opiate pain killer. If anyone is addicted to opiates then Talwin is a good drug to stay away from as it will throw you into precipatated withdrawals. Other then that it's a OK pain killer for mild to moderate pain... Dave

thanks mpvt, I have been on it for a while, and never heard of it before dr put me on it. I understand the withdrawal part well, as was on vicodin before that, but dr said would be better than vicodin..hum.. thanks again for the info :)

Here's some more info on this drug.
Pentazocine (Talacen) is an analgesic with agonist/antagonist action which when administered orally is approximately equivalent on a mg for mg basis in analgesic effect to codeine.

One more question, is it stronger? vicodin has 5mg codiene, and talacen has 25mg of Penta... if its the same by mg by mg basis, don't quite understand

Vicodin has no codeine in it, it is hydrocodone and yes it is stronger then Talwin (Talacen)
