red and pink gel capsule
found capsule, its oblong pink on one side and deep red (maroon0 on other ## Hi, Paul are there any markings on it? If not, then we can rule it out as being a manufactured prescription medication, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. That means that this is most likely some type of over the counter product. Where did you find it? Some products are regional, so knowing the general location may help to narrow it down. ## It's a study cap...

12 years on 3mgs Bromazepam
I have taken 3mg of Bromazepam per day for 12 years with no side effects and it helps me sleep well.Should I stop? ## Hello, Sweety! How are you? When is the last time you saw your doctor? You should be evaluated, periodically, to check out your health and see how the medication is affecting you. Additionally, you can't stop this abruptly, after taking it for such a long period of time, because that creates the risk of seizures. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks for your reply Verwon. I am 62 and as far as I know in good health apart from the fact that I have suffered from migraines since I was 45 (this is under control). I had an MRI scan of the brain a few months ago because of the migraines and this showed no problem at all. I have always been a bad sleeper and wh...

Fill Oxycodone In Ga
im in calhoun ga.... i need to fill my rx for 30mg oxycodone 120 count any suggestions?? ## I had been visiting a doctor in Cartersville and have been unable to reach his office this week for my 30mg oxicordone can you recommend a doctors office for me ## I need to find a new doctor somewhere near Atlanta, that can help me renew my 30mg oxicodone, I am having trouble trying to reach my clinic in Cartersville and I'm about to run out! Can anybody help me with a new clinic? ## My advice would be to make sure you aren't just calling the pharmacies to ask. If it's just a voice on the phone, they have no way of knowing whether or not you are a legitimate customer in need or a potential thief. Thus, most will just say that they don't stock any controlled substances. To get acc...

Zanaflex: My experience
I have been prescribed Zanaflex for almost 2 years for muscle spasms after flexeril didn't work any longer. I also had early stages of RA for which i also take gabapentin, Xanax, and tramadol (I took myself off of Vicodin). Zanaflex has been a life saver for me. I take 8mg before bed and can sleep soundly without waking from painful spasms. The only downfalls are that I have become physically addicted, I cannot fall asleep without my zanaflex. Without it I will stay up for days, no fun! Also, it causes the most extreme drowsiness ever! Taking zanaflex during the day with four kids running around is not an option. ## HI, Mattison! Thanks for your informative post, I am sure others will gain benefit from what you've shared. As to being addicted, I am of the opinion that you're...

zanaflex
i have recently been prescribed zanaflex. I was told it's a mix of xanax and flexirl. I was just wondering if anyone else has taken the drug and does food really effect it. ## Hi. I just had back surgery 10 days ago. Because of the length and sverity of my condition (a double herniaton of the L-5 disc) I have had severe muscle spasms all up and down both legs and in my back. It just so happens that I have just completed my certivicate in drug and alcohol rehab counseling., and am finishing up a course in PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY. I've just started taking this drug, since I told my doctor that I can't handle FLEXERIL, which is NOT an anti-inflamitory or a muscle relaxer. Flexeril is a benzodiazapine - a sedative, which is why it is sometimes prescribed for muscle pain. There is NO ...

Abuse of zanaflex
I was just wondering if anyone out there has ever abused zanaflex. I am ashamed to admit I did. I was just so desperate to sleep at night. One or two wasn't cutting it so I started going up to 6, 7, or 8 at I time. I would never ever recommend this for anyone. It was just my own desperation and stupidity. I have always had giant tolerances to everything. Anyway, this stuff would put me down hard, it was hard to get up and walk myself to the bathroom and the other thing was the vivid hallucinations, i have never experienced anything like it before. Everything I was seeing was so real it was scary and I would even see people and hold conversations with them. In the morning i would be completely fine. Thankfully i am in treatment for addiction now to various other substances. I just ne...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

pharmascience pill P 75 capsule
I found a capsule.. either very faded pink or tanned?? cannot find it listed on other webpages. It has the P on it, and it looks like the P from the symbol Pharmascience, as it has a red circle around it, and the bottum of the P is underlined in red (or brown) The bottum half of the capsule says 75. The only thing that is remotely close is Generic form of Effexor, but it just shows the same colour and shape. I can not find anything that matches the shape with the P and the 75 at the bottum. ## I want to know the purpose of red and Tan of capsule pills

I have had one ablation so far. If anyone else takes it please let me know what it is like. I am starting it on Tuesday. ## I seem to be in the same situation you are in, however, my heart is rate controlled and have not been in the 190 range while in afib.

ESCITALOPRAM GENERIC FOR LEXAPRO
MY DR SND INSURANCE CO, SAY THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR LEXAPRO..I READ ONLINE THAT ESIPRAM OR EXIPRAM IS THE GENERIC FOR LEXAPRO MADE BY SAME COMPANY...WHAT IS GOING ON..IS IT REALLY AVAILABLE IN THE USA..LEXAPRO DOES NOT GO OF PATENT TIL 2012 ## Escitalopram is the active ingredient in Lexapro, which is traditionally used as the name for the generic medication when it is available, however, your insurance company and doctor are correct, it is NOT available, yet. ## Esipram does exist! I've used it before and it is just as effective as Lexapro. Its definately available in Australia. If its true that Lexparo loses its patent in 2012 then there wouldn't be generics of escitalopram available as there has been in the last couple of years. ## I take random drug panels for divorce/cus...

Wait or not have to wait to eat or drink after suboxone?
Hello, everyone! I have heard from different people that they can eat and drink right after taking subs. Others have said 2 wait a half hour. Does anyone know which is true? Different Drs say different things. Thank u 4 your input. ## Hi cats, my dr. says don't eat, drink or smoke 15mins before or after taking sub but its alright to rinse with water before taking. ## answerd twice but both needed to be reviewed. ## Hey Jolter, would it b ok if I give u my e mail address when I get home? So, we can just talk as friends. ## Its ok with me but they won't let you send an email address on this site. ## Hey cats, You can but they won,t put the address thru.

green goddess liquid pain killer
I suffer from chronic chest pains, and it feels like someone is crushing my heart, i get sharp pains, and it debilatates me. in the ER the have given me this green goddess and it worked wonders, hard to swallow after, but it killed the pain, well my ignorant Dr. refuses to subscribe it to me, she tends to think that the nexium will work one day. So i figure ill make my own green goddess, but all i know is that it contains lidocain,, maylox, or mylanta and something else. so if anyone could help me with my problem i would greatly appreciate it, i have dealt with this pain for 12 years, and im tired of it,. Thank you ## The name of this mixture varies from region to region, from what I can discover it contains Lidocaine, Mylanta and Donnatal. The Lidocaine is a mild, topical anesthetic. T...

Watson 932 Opposed To Endocet 10 325 Mg
Do any of the members of this forum have an opinion as to the effectiveness of Endocet v. Watson 932 equivelant? ## They are both supposed to contain 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, but since there can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients in generics, as well as in the fillers used, how they work for anyone can be different. While others may have gotten good or bad results from one of the other of them, the only way to find out how they work for you is to actually try it. This is a narcotic pain reliever and may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any comments or questions? ## For me personally the Watson 932 works much better than endocet 712....I can tell a BIG difference in my pain relief ## Most of...
