    Default Tylenol 1 - Any Pharmacist know WTF happened?

    I've had terrible migraines since I was a kid, shit that's so unbearable that you can't even sit still without wanting to punch the wall. For years I've tried everything, strongest Tylenol, migraine variants, nothing worked. 20 years ago I started using Tylenol 1's (Tylenol + Caffeine + Low Dose Codine) which finally did the trick. A bottle lasts me a year for the 10-15 days a year I get bad migraines. Figure it's time for a refill, and nothing. Nobody has any stock anymore. Nobody can tell me why either. Google showed this article:

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saska...isis-1.5159395

    I know they've been keeping track in the last couple of years of how much you're buying, as they're now checking for ID and health care card, but this year, nothing. One pharmacy says they just stopped carrying it. Others gave me no answer.

    Am I fucked? I mean, it seems like T1's are still non prescription and pharmacies just decided to stop carrying it because of the opioid crisis. My only option is to get a prescription and go for the stronger T2, but won't that just increase my chances of turning into a junkie? I prefer T1's over T2's and T3's because I can be completely normal. T3's, I'm high, I ain't driving.

    Which is sad. I mean if they just made it prescription only, I'm ok with that. Right now they just completely killed off access to T1's because it's a moral dilemma for pharmacists?

    I don’t really have anything valuable to add.

    Maybe it’s on the distributor side, like McKesson won’t bring it into Canada anymore?

    Rage, I texted a pharma buddy of mine..

    'Its been in and out of stock for a year or more. Often places just can't get it. Its a med that gets abused a bunch and new regs came in and they have to do a through assessment of each patient that want to buy it. Its a total ball ache, and for that reason lots of places have chosen just not stock it. So two things really..'

    I finding drinking a Rockstar helps when I get migraines.

    Thanks.

    So basically, I have to wait until Health Canada switches it to prescription only. I'm OK with that because then my health plan would cover it too.

    If I find a place that sells it, I'm going to go all junkie and get you guys to buy me a bunch under the radar so I can last a couple years until Health Canada fixes the stupid problem.

    Have you tried tylenol and caffeine to see if that works? Many pharmacies sell these tablets. Worth a try.

    T1s have been a headache to get for years.

    Think there's still a cough syrup with codeine you can get that's similar... (yeah adds the cough crap but still codeine and tylenol as a base)

    Not to encourage terrible habits but when the cluster migraines set in... Standard vape juice, and 2 drops of the edison balanced cbd/thc extract in the 3ml tank - puff as needed (I'm a super lightweight, don't react to weed well typically) is better than the prescribed heavy migraine meds I have. If you think hard you probably know a beyonder like say @barmanjay who could set you up...

    It's weird, was never a problem for me over the years. Like I said, the only real change I've seen was the requirement to show ID + health care card. Since I only buy at one place, it was never a problem for me. It just completely disappeared from everywhere.

    Anyways, I think I found some. Will report back. Till then, my last of what I have, only have enough for 4-5 migrane attacks.

    I was gonna ask this too. My dad lives in Arizona during the winters and when he drives down to Mexico he says he picks up all kinds of name brand medications for a fraction of the cost anywhere else, though I guess the question is about availability and not cost.

    Yup. Cost isn't an issue, I wanna say I pay $40 a year for 100?

    Dude... I have the same types of issues and what works for me is taking 2 extra strength tylenol and two advil cold and sinus together at the same time. Takes maybe an hour or so to kick in but totally works. We jokingly call it a double double. Normally mixing meds can be a no no but I asked my doctor about it and he says if it works to keep doing it. You should give it a try.

    Ever tried Excedrin Migraine from the US? That's what I use for mine. Only thing I found that works without being stoned off heavier stuff.

    Have you tried a micro-dose of like .5g of psilocybin cubensis?

    Highly recommend giving it a shot, dunno how you could put that much acetaminophen into your body!!
