This is a word I came across while reading the term “meds” the other day. I had no idea what it meant and was completely baffled as to what you would use it for. I decided to create a Pinterest board for the word and hopefully it will help someone who has a similar problem.
Meds are one of the most common medical devices (in fact, they’re used in the United States for a whopping 1.6 percent of all hospital admissions).
Meds are basically a pill that is given to someone to control their pain. They are administered either orally or rectally, and most are given to patients who have pain conditions such as back pain or arthritis. They can also be given for a variety of different conditions, such as to prevent blood clots, to ease muscle spasms, or even to treat patients with cancer.
So what are these medical devices anyway? Medbs are basically a pill that can be given to a person to alleviate pain. A lot of medbs, such as oxycodone and morphine are given to patients to reduce the amount of pain that they feel. They’re usually given to people with pain disorders, and they can also be used for other conditions such as arthritis, muscle spasms, or anemia.
All of those medbs are supposed to work. But theyare not supposed to work so much. They are supposed to be prescribed on an ongoing basis. I’ve seen them given to people with certain conditions, such as cancer, and some diseases, such as Parkinson’s.
Theyre called “medicants” because they are supposed to be more pain relievers. They are usually taken in the form of opioids to ease the pain, but some of them also may be helpful to people who have an anxiety disorder.
Meds are used to treat muscle spasms, which are a common side effect of opioids. Muscle spasms are actually something that we doctors have to watch out for, but meds are used to help people who suffer from muscle spasms.
My first meds were pills…
I was first diagnosed with anxiety disorder when I was 16. I was prescribed a combination of a few different drugs for that, and I remember that my doctor gave me a stack of pills that he said I had to swallow. I thought it was only for kids, but I guess it was a little more than that. They usually have a pretty good effect on anxiety, and they’re usually relatively safe to take.
I don’t know what any of that has to do with meds, but I have a good friend who was prescribed antidepressants. She is one of the rare people who was prescribed them that didn’t end up taking them for serious psychological reasons. This friend has a great memory for details about how she was prescribed the drugs, and was told that she was “just looking for a new normal.
