*This is the current price for 20mg lisinopril at Target and Wal-Mart pharmacies. This does not require any insurance or special program - it's just what they charge to get you in the store in hopes you'll buy toothpaste or socks. Other pharmacies (especially ones based in chain discount grocery stores) often come very close to this price. Big national chain pharmacies (CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walgreens, I'm talking to you!) charge much more, but still typically only around $15 to fill a 30-day prescription for the 20mg size.

For extreme cases of pain, end of life situations,physicians might finally pull out the big guns, Tylenol 3, 30mg of codeine and the ultimate, the biggie....Temgesic, Buprenorphine in 0.2mg size. That one is almost unthinkable, one to be whispered. I told the Internist whom we both share that I considered it at absolute sin that Mexico would not allow any pain medications on the market. I said if I cared anymore and had the energy I would file a Human Rights complaint nationally, but directed worldwide that Mexico was being unusually cruel and inhumane in prohibiting the multitudes of medicines available. Under extreme circumstances you can receive morphine, not available in any pill form, but by injection into an IV drip set up, no IM injections and only administered in a hospital.
we recently found out that my son reacts to most all pain meds but found nabufina to work (for him) better than morphine. It is narcotic, and he got it in clinic and the hospital (chest tube and cardiothoracic surgery) and it worked for him. When we took the ambulance from PdC to Merida, I actually held the ampule of nabufina as I'd bought it on discharge from the clinic, in teh event he needed it enroute. Also, once he could be weaned off the nabufina we went to tramadol (oral) and that worked very well for him also.

Nalbuphine is a really odd drug. One example of this is that it works considerably better for women and can actually increase pain for some men. It's also the only opioid available in the US that isn't a federal controlled substance.
