Reviews for Pentazocine

Talwin (pentazocine) for Pain: "As with any narcotic use with extreme caution and check before mixing with other prescriptions. Highly addictive for some people. Mother lost her job and ultimately life as a result of quack doctors and ultimate addiction to this controlled substance. Wrecked my life."

For Pain: "Was not hungry for hours, worked the same as Percocet 10 or Vicodin 10. Did give me bossy attitude."

For Pain: "I suffer from lifelong migraine headaches. This medicine seems to help keep me out of the ER. It is still early to tell, but I am hoping that it will be at least one answer to the puzzle of my near daily pain."

Talwin (pentazocine) for Pain: "No side effects. Takes a little to ease the pain in right leg and back. Do not eat at the same time you take pill, it has a bitter taste."

For Pain: "I don't think it works better than Vicodin or other narcotics, but works better than Darvocet and Telynol 3 with codeine. Lasts longer than Vicodin but, pain still 3~4 out of 10. By the way, have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, sciatica."
