Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...

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...

Finding a pcp to prescribe pain meds
Before I start, I would like to thank the person that responds to this. I have looked online for recommendations, with no success. I won't bore you with the details. I just didn't know where to turn and everyone (most everyone) is so helpful and knowledgeable ## I dont know where you live but in Oklahoma to get anything more than tramadol you have to see a pain specialist and he has to be reffered by a pcp.

Endocet10325
is it true that endocet10-325 is no longer available, and if so why? ## Hi Thomas, If you run a google search for "Endocet Discontinued", you'll find that various websites do actually list Endocet as being discontinued; however they do not offer any specific reasons as to why. That said, I can't say for certain that it truly is discontinued, otherwise I think it would say so under normal Endocet search results. Some pharmacies may have stopped prescribing it due to the higher dose of Oxycodone, but it might be best to just ask the pharmacy directly if they are carrying it. I hope this helps! ## It has been increasingly difficult to fill my monthly prescription for Endocet, and now it is totally unavailable. It would cost me over $800.00 per month for Percocet, and when I...

Topamax and eye twitching
Hi, I have been using Topamax for depression for 12 months and must admit that it has been very sucessful. The one major draw back is that I have developed a very annoying eye twitch. It only affects one eye, but is very noticeable. I was taking 100 mg twice a day, but have decreased it to 100 mg daily. The twitch has decreased somewhat, and I realize that I now have to come off this drug completely to get rid of the twitch entirely. Has anyone else experienced this problem. I read 1 other reader, but are there more? ## Sorry it took so long to reply. I had the same problem with Topamax which I use for epilepsy. It is the coating of the 100 mg for me. The 50 mg does not cause this on me, so I take 2/50 mg tablets instead. Ever heard of Topamax causing gout? ## I've developed an eye ...

Suboxone Withdrawal
I am currently on 1mg Suboxone and getting ready to stop taking altogether. What are the repercussions ? ## Hi paranah, How long were you on Suboxone for? And have you always been on a 1mg dosage? I know some people have mentioned on other threads that they had no problem stopping a 1mg dose, without withdrawals; yet in other cases, long term patients have still had withdrawal issues even past the 0.5mg mark. Whereas they found themselves having to taper down to .25 mg for about a week before being able to stop completely. Everyone's different though, so you may just need to contact your doctor regarding a tapering schedule if you feel like you need additional assistance. Many people going through withdrawals also find that exercise is a big factor as far as keeping their mood eleva...

Diclofenac Sod 100 Mg Sa Tab
BACK PAIN ACROS THE BACK NO PAIN WHEN I PICK UP OR WHEN I BEND WALKING IS THE ONLY PROBLEM ## Diclofenac is in a class of medications called NSAIDs; used to relieve pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness. It works by stopping the body's production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. Is this medication not working as well as you had anticipated? If not, I would probably suggest having your back checked out to see what it is that might be causing the pain. Light jogging on a regular basis may also be helpful for strengthening your back, depending on the cause and severity of your pain. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Diclofenac Details If you have any other questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## what effe...

tablet to stop period bleeding tabs600mg white not red
Hi I'm 19 yrs old and just started my period today. I heard that taking 800mg of ibuprofen every 6 hours can temporarily stop the bleeding.

How can I find a pain dr in Atlanta who prescribes Methadone
Need a doctor in Atlanta GA for Methadone for Pain. Its the only thing that has helped relieve back pain and without it, theres no point. Ive been on a low dose. Because of people overdosing and dying, we are now treated as criminals - and due to liability issues, doctor after doctor no longer prescribes. No doctor will help me so Im now panicking because I dont want to be in debilitating pain. Plus in our healthcare system, doctors get paid by insurance for procedures and so theyw ant to to that cuz they make more than a drug script ## Hi MAT, Here is a list of doctors who can prescribe methadone, suboxone, and subutex in the Atlanta, GA area. methadonedocs.com/methadone-suboxone-doctors/Georgia-Ga/Atlanta.aspx Also, have you ever considered trying acupuncture or essential oils?

what is the shelf life of alprazolam before it's useless?
I have a bottle of alprazolam from 2005 and I'm wondering if it's still good/ ## The shelf life of Alprazolam should be located on the packaging of the drug. If not, then chances are that the medication is no longer good based on how many years it has been sitting there; however I am not an MD, so I cannot say for sure what may or may not be safe for you to consume. I would urge you to contact your doctor or local physician to assess if the quality of the drug still remains. If you are interested in viewing more information regarding Alprazolam, then please follow the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back so I can further assist you. ## If you need help with drugs please ask God for healing just say out loud now Jesus I believe and I accept y...

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

white oblong pill with a333
This a333 is generic for percocet and CVS is dispensing them, OXYCODONE10/3.25 is what they are. ## Thanks for taking the time to share this information. To anyone else needing a second opinion, I can also confirm that an oblong white pill marked with "A333" is in fact identified as Oxycodone (10mg) + Acetaminophen (325mg); which is used to treat moderate to severe pain. For verification, this tablet is said to be manufactured by Actavis, and has a National Drug Code of 00228-2983-11. Does anyone here have personal experience or feedback from trying these over other manufacturer's brands/generics? I heard one complaint about someone having stomach or GI problems from this particular form, but have yet to come across a list of inactive ingredients to see what exactly might be...

methadone doctor in alabama
does dr. Harrison write methadone still for sure cause I can't afford to go & him not write it!!! ## did you ever find out about this doc writing methadone? ## I don't know how many Dr. Harrison's there are in the state of Alabama, but you might need to get a little more specific with the location/city if you're referring to a certain type of physician. I had found about four different Dr. Harrison's there on google just now. In many cases, I also think it would be important to let your medical records speak for themselves when it comes to finding someone who is willing to give you what you truly need. It's a tough game to play, since a lot of doctors tend to see it as drug seeking behavior when you openly ask them for a specific medication right off the bat....
