Pain Home > Pentazosin

Were you looking for information about Pentazocine? Pentazosin is a common misspelling of pentazocine.
If you suffer from moderate-to-severe pain, your healthcare provider may prescribe pentazocine lactate (Talwin®). Because this is a desired drug of abuse, it is considered a controlled substance and there are strict rules regarding its sale and use.
Some people are more likely to experience problems with this drug than others. For example, people who abuse the medication and suddenly stop using it are likely to experience withdrawal symptoms.
