Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste. You ...

days 1-7 pink 10 mg tablets, then day 8-14 light orange 20 mg tablets, then days 15-30 light green 40 mg tablets
Found a cardboard package under 13-year-old's bed with three different colored series of pills packaged in it that you push through. The only thing written on them is the dosage (10 mg/20 mg/40 mg). The first ones are marked on the package as day 1 - 7 pink small oval pills, then days 8 - 14 oval just a little larger salmon colored pills, then days 15 - 30 are larger oval light green pills.

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Yeah, what is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend lab...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

Lexapro side effects and withdrawal
I started lexapro for anxiety and hot flashes. Was given 20mg but only took 10mg to start. I took this for 3 days. It did help with the anxiety and no hot flashes. HURRAH! However by the 4th day, I broke out in an itchy red rash and welts over my entire body including my scalp and face. I stopped the Lexapro immediately. By the fifth day, my face and hands were very swollen. It took 4 days for the rash to go away and the swelling so I thought I was out of the woods. Since then, I feel like I have a heavy chest, something stuck in my throat, dizziness, foggy and heavy head and pressure in my ears. I was wondering whether these are actually withdrawal symptoms even tho I had only been on Lexapro for 3 days. Anyone else have these reactions?????

oblong white 204 pill
it is in the 12 hour non drowsey sudafed ## Dude you serious? It is not sudafed lmao, it is generic percocet. You get sudafed for sinus problems and colds like, sinus pressure, sinus headaches and sinus infections. Ive also taken it for my bronchitis. I dont know where you got this info from, but you couldnt be more wrong.. Also Sudafed does not last 12 hours lol the life span of sudafed is from 4 to 6 hrs. Your just giving out bad information, if you dont know what your talking about (Obviously you dont) then dont say anything. Giving bad info on a site like this could be dangerous. It could be powerful medication, and someone comes along like you, and says "u'll be fine its just aspirin". Then that person will overdose because of stupid people who abuse drugs and ruin it f...

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...

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....

how strong is hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325
Which is easier on body? Tylenol 3 or hydroco/acetaminop 5-325 ## Hello, Hunter! How are you? Since they both contain Acetaminophen, neither is really any easier on the body, they both carry the same risks of possibly causing liver damage. As to pain relief, the Hydrocodone is far more potent and effective than the Codeine in the Tylenol 3. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## which is stronger-hydrocodone 7.5 325 or hydrocodone 5 325
