    Could someone please tell me about loratab, patches etc.,
    What type of medication are they, such as codiene, morphine etc.
    The most I have had is darvacet and now ultram. I would like to be informed so I could ask my doctor for something that works better.
    Thank you,

    If you get a copy of "The PDR Pocket Guide to Prescription Drugs" you will find great information on most drugs that are available. This book is updated each year. I'm usually "reminded" to buy a new copy when I'm at my pharmacy, where copies are sold. But you can find a copy in many other places such as Amazon.com, & Barnes & Noble, etc.
    I think everyone should have a copy because of the very valuable info it contains on medications, dosage, reactions, etc.
    Good luck & God bless,
