  • Pain medications work best in preventing pain before it occurs.
  • Once the pain becomes intense, the medication is not as effective in relieving it.
  • Use Talwin Compound exactly as directed by your doctor.
  • Do not increase your dose, use it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because Talwin Compound can be habit-forming.
  • Also, if used for an extended period of time, do not suddenly stop using Talwin Compound without your doctor s approval.
  • Over time, Talwin Compound may not work as well.
  • Consult your doctor if Talwin Compound is not relieving the pain sufficiently.

  • Children and teenagers should not take aspirin if they have chickenpox, influenza or any undiagnosed illness without first consulting a doctor about Reye s syndrome, a rare but serious illness.
  • Use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Limit alcohol consumption because it may add to the dizziness/drowsiness effects of Talwin Compound.
  • Talwin Compound may cause stomach bleeding.
  • Daily use of alcohol, especially when combined with Talwin Compound, may increase your risk for stomach bleeding.

  • Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use, especially of: blood thinners (e.g., warfarin, heparins), NSAID (e.g., ibuprofen, naproxen), cimetidine, acetazolamide, corticosteroids, methotrexate, medication for gout, drugs used for diabetes, sleeping pills, sedatives, anti-anxiety drugs (e.g., diazepam), anti-seizure drugs, muscle relaxants, drowsiness-causing antihistamines (e.g., diphenhydramine), all other pain relievers.
