Reviews for Aspirin / caffeine / orphenadrine

Anonymous June 22, 2010

Norgesic Forte (aspirin / caffeine / orphenadrine): “I do not tolerate any medications. I have 5 herniated discs and this is the only thing I can take that works. It works, a bit hard on the stomach though. I would suggest yogurt to help your stomach and do not drink any coffee! A Great Medication for those that cannot take strong medicine.”

Norgesic (aspirin / caffeine / orphenadrine): “I tryed norgesic for 2 weeks 3 times a day. It was for a bad muscle spasm im my back, was hard to breathe. I swear norgesic is a placebo.It did nothing at all for me...Nothing. Worked as paracetamol at best dose no better imo. Told the doctor of my opinion and was given Valium (diazepam) 5mg. That worked amazingly. I felt it working the whole time. With the valium it took me 2 weeks to recover. Im EXTREMELY surprised to see so many people say norgesic it worked for them, But glad it did. I don't usually give feedback /- however I truly don't think this compound works.”

“I used this in the past for migraines and it worked very good. Then they stopped making it. Is it available again? That would be wonderful! I was on it for probably 7 years before they discontinued making it. I am going to try and get as separate ingredients if I can't find it. I heard you can get the aspirin and caffeine together as one pill and I will get the orphenadrine on its own. By taking them together that should work.”

Norgesic (aspirin / caffeine / orphenadrine): “Norgesic was prescribed to me a few times when I had to get medication acutely when I was out of town, etc, where they don't give you the "real medications". As one would expect, it's an OTC relaxant comparable to like, paracetamol in pain killers. It won't do much at all if you are used to the hard stuff. But no abuse value, hardly any sides. It be okay for mild cases.”

Norgesic (aspirin / caffeine / orphenadrine): “Not nearly as "masking" as Lortab or Vicodin, but measurably close. It's definitely noticeable that caffeine exists among the ingredients, too. I've felt fairly pain free since taking this medicine.”
