 1  Car accident, mri noted ls probs irritability, hot flashes, fast/irregular heartbeat, tremors, nausea it did not diminish pain whatsoever. i was concerned when i saw it used to be widely abused but it's beyond me why anyone would want to take this drug. i do not usually take narcotics so i have a low tolerence for them and this provided no relief at all but felt like being in a nightmare the last time i took a dose. i would NEVER take this prescription again.

 1  Surgery on finger Extreme nausea and vomiting. My Doctor recommended taking this medication immediately after my surgery. (Stay ahead of the pain). I followed his instructions even though I wasn't in any pain. Immediately after taking one pill, I became sick and vomited. I waited the required hours before taking the second pill, which caused the same reaction. I will NEVER take this medication again. F 63 1 days

 4  1. Shoulder injury, 2. Depression Taking a full 50 mg pill leads to increasing disorientation and tiredness. 1/4 pill (12.5 mg) usually has no side effects except the occasional upset stomach. Although I started with Talwin for pain (worked very well), I have mainly used it (unprescribed) to help with depression. I am also on anti-depressants. When I am extremely depressed and non-functional, 1/4 pill (12.5 mg) gets me out of it. There is the temptation to continue taking 1/4 pills, but I can limit it to 2/day for 3-4 days. By then, I'm ok. F 48 10 years

 5  Gunshot Wound to shoulder I had no side effects at all using this. I was taking so many vicodin 750 that I had major allergic reaction. This is the best pain killer I have ever used and did not make me stupid or dizzy or high.. If you are in severe pain and I mean severe, this works wonderful without any side effects used as prescribed. Also because I took 1 per day and it killed pain all day til the next morning, I had no withdrawals. F 43 5 months

 5  severe pain (kidney stones) Talwin takes the edge off the pain for me but doesn't have the mental confusion side effects many narcotics have for me. I can still function on it. I have had probably half a dozen or more Talwin prescriptions since my twenties and prefer it to Percocet or Vicodin, which make me nauseated. I have never taken it longer than three or fours days at a time, however. I keep it on hand for horseback riding injuries. F 53 30 years

 5  back pain Do not drive until medicine wears off. Similar to 3 martinis. My back hurt for 2 years, related to deformed vertebra. I slept next to a back brace which I needed to strap on before I could stand up. Over 2 years, doctors prescribed a long list of medicines which only ruined my digestion. A new doctor prescribed Talwin for 6 weeks. Following 6 week course, back pain remained gone and has since been kept under control with regular exercise and occasional use of Talwin, a couple pills per year. M 40 6 weeks

 1  infection from bone graft in finger Fever, extreme nausea & vomiting (even with food), heart racing, extreme dizziness & vertigo, couldn't sleep but was in this weird 1/2-dream state with really fast & often disturbing images/thoughts. It's supposed to last 4 hours but after 8 hours I could barely stand. This was the worst medicine experience I've ever had! I'd much rather have the pain, & I hate pain. It takes longer to metabolize than stated on the label (in my case & it looks like some others, too). I switched to plain old regular Tylenol... scared of pain killers at this point. F 30 1 days

 1  shoulder pain I had severe vomiting for 3 days, extreme restlesness,suicidal thoughts. No pain but I stopped cold turkey and had the worst week of my life. This drug is dangerous. I ran out of the drug after 1 week and before I could get more I went into withdrawal. In less than 24 hours my body reacted severely to the chemical dependancy. F 45 8 days

 1  Knee surgery Began vomiting within an hour, vomited for 24 hours. Didn't realize this was what caused it until I took a second one and vomited for 18 hours. I will never take another one. The Doctor said put these on your allergic list. I reccomend that you do not buy this. F 68 2 days

 5  Dry Socket - tooth extraction I am highly codeine intolerant. I was in such pain from a condition I got after a tooth extraction called Dry Socket that the dentist called the pharmacist and he recommended this. Combined with a few Advil it got me through the nightmarish pain I was in with no bad side effects at all. It had a relaxing effect which was helpful due to the pain I was in. It was a lifesaver for me but I could see how it would be addictive over a long period of time due to the relaxing effects the drug has. I am glad to have finally found a painkiller that actually works for me though, to be taken only when I really need it! F 45 7 days

 1  abdominal pain vomited for 6 hours until it wore off. mild hallucinations (waking nightmares?). The vomiting was so painful to my already-sore abdomen that it counteracted the pain relieving effects. I was so dizzy I could hardly stay upright to vomit. I was given this because I'm allergic to opiates. The pain would have been better. F 37 1 days

 4  Hernia operation I actually took Talacen, similar to Talwin but with the analgesic part being asprin. The drug worked well to control pain, caused a warm fuzzy feeling without any negative side effects. Seemed to react well with caffeine? Strange but true. M
