I've kept my coumadin levels very steady because I eat the same thing every day, one half of a bag of prewashed lettuce. Depending on the kind, the bags are normally 7or 9 ounces. The thing is I'm getting tired of it. So without changing my coumadin, how much fresh green beans or canned green beans should I eat? And is there a good place to find these answers?

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
139 Replies RSS
i have post sirgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg pat. ch and had side effects ans so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from peroidic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistant restless leggs. it is driving me crazy. my doctor says that is not withdrawal. is he right? i don't think so. if it is withdrawal, what can i do about it and how long will it last? i am going crazy. ## Of course it can be from the withdrawal, your doctor might be surprised if he talked to some former addicts and learned the various things they suffered, when withdrawing from their drug of choice and you don't have to be abusing a medication for such things to happen.

i need to find a doctor in fort worth texas that perscribs pain killers like hydrocodones
74 Replies RSS
Does anyone know a doctor that is good about prescribing pain killers like hydrocodens 10/325 in fort worth Texas iam a diabetic type 1 that has a lot of pain and really in need of a good doctor that can help me out and not think iam faking pain ## Due to the new laws that have recently been put in place, you will most likely be better off seeing a pain management specialist and there isn't a very good chance of getting this particular medication anymore. The FDA and DEA are cracking down and aren't letting general practitioners or surgeons treat chronic pain that requires long-term regular treatments. They will only be allowed to prescribe such medications for a short period of time, such as for a few weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been injured. Learn more p...

estrogen methyltestosterone tb
1 Reply RSS
I am told that tb is for tablet, fs is for full strength hs is for half strength, is this true? ## Hello, Jane! How are you? It depends on where and how it's included on the prescription, but generally yes that is correct. From what you've listed, the tb would stand for tablet, in this case. The FDA classifies this as a hormonal supplement and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

Metronidazole lasting side effects
357 Replies RSS
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

I have a tube of Reacel-A that I bought in Mexico and it is now expired. Is it harmful in anyway to use this if expired? ## Hello, Gina! How are you? It would be best to dispose of it. Liquid and cream medications tend to degrade faster than other forms, so it is possible that its actually gone bad, since it's expired. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin irritation, dryness and redness. Is there anything else I can help with?

oxycodone tolerance assistance
3 Replies RSS
I have a spine injury (C-1 thru C-6) Bulging disc and serious pain in upper shoulder through to arm and numbing hand. Taking 200mg Lyrica a day and was taking 15mg Oxycodone IR 3 per day for a year. Had to move and switch VA doctors, new doctor switched me to 5mg Oxycodone 3x a day and Tylenol, Lyrica 75mg 2x day, along with multiple other so called pain meds (Toprimate and others similar). Now I get little to no pain relief and a drugged down weary feeling. After multiple complaints about continuing pain I am treated like a drug addict chasing a larger dosage. All I want is my 15mg back so I can return to work. How do I convince a doctor I am not just chasing the drug fix. I have never failed a drug panel or pill count and have all the medical evidence to support the pain. ## Doctor ac...

My husband just had triple bypass surgery. A normal week for us would be salad with chicken on sat. some broc. or spinach with chicken on a week night. Another night a piece of fish with asparagus etc. I am now in a panic, because I don't know what to stop or not? All I read is be consistant? Should I remove some greens? We don't eat greens every day, but at least 3-4 times a week. Thank You ## Hello, Mimi! How are you? Generally, you should avoid high amounts of any goods that contain a lot of vitamin K, such as spinach and dark leafy greens. The FDA classifies Coumadin as a blood thinner and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, easy bruising and increased risk of bleeding.

The directions on the bottle is take 1 tablet four times a day. ## Hello, Brook! How are you?

coumadin and cranberry
1 Reply RSS
Getting conflicting info on cranberry juice or AZO tablets and Coumadin. Don't want my 83 yr. old mother to get another UTI. Just got out of hospital from having one. Can't decided if it's ok to give her cranberry juice while taking Warfarin. ## So far, clinical studies have shown no danger in consuming cranberry products, while taking Warfarin, but it's always best to double check with one's doctor to be sure. The FDA classifies Coumadin as a blood thinner and its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. Is there anything else I can help with?
