I dont know what these drugs are that you mentioned but you should speak to your GP.

I take 2 types of insulin, a short acting which I take 4x per day before each meal. It acts quicky which is why I need to eat once ive taken it and once it has done it's job (getting rid of blood sugar from the meal i've just eaten) its done with till my next meal

the other one is short long acting, I take this at bedtime and it works slowly over 24 hours.

Short acting drug work over a short period of time and start working right away. Long acting drugs are released over a period of time and take a little longer to start working.

Be very careful because more than a couple of these medications are very dangerous. If you have any questions you should comtact your physician or local pharmacist.

I'm not sure on all of em but here I go from what I know from 6 years of pain mgmt. Lidoderm is long if it's a patch.
Darvocet=short & waste of $
Next 4 I know nothing about
Nubian=short
Oxycontin=long
Oxyfast=short
Percocet=short
Oxycodone+is a lot like Oxycontin+long
Vicodin=short
Ultram=short & wasted $
Ultracet= short
Hope this helps ya

The difference is just wat is says - some are short acting, a few hours, and some are long acting - 8, 12 or even 24 hours.

Check the site I've noted below for information, in plain language, about any med. They have a link near the bottom of the page to Drugs A - Z.

Long and short acting drugs mean just that. Long last 12hours or more short usually last 4 to 6 hours. Your duragesic drug, also known as fentanyl last 3 days and it is a patch and very dangerous to tamper with, Oxycontin last twelve also very dangerous if you do not take it as prescribed, oxycodone last 4 to 6 hours and dangerous too. Vicodin, percocet, are short. I am not to sure about some of the others because I never had to take them yet. Most of these drugs are for mild to severe chronic pain and are addicting. I just am wondering why you need to know. These are dangerous and have caused deaths in those who abuse them so don't be stupid. If you need more info check on line, there's plenty of info there that can tell you all about them. Be good.
