finding a pharmacy in las vegas with norco 10 325 stock
Where can i get my prescription norco 10/325 filled in las vegas nevada? ## having trouble finding a pharmacy that has NorCo in stock ## Got me, CVS has been sitting on my Rx for 1 week. Can't or won't say when it gets in also may not get 7.5mg/325's ## I'm sorry that you are all having a problem getting your prescriptions filled. On top of all the other changes that happened this year, we are also now into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a company has manufactured their allowed amount of the year, they must cease production until the new year. So far, I've not known of a single year where demand hasn't exceeded the supply and a shortage happened the last few months of th...

If anyone has any info please share... ## Hello, Fina and Nyla! How are you both? Well, unfortunately, we are into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances. There are mandatory manufacturing limits to help keep better track of the supply and once a company reaches that limit, they can not manufacture anymore, until the new year. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and ...

xarelto and dairy
Just started xarelto 8 days ago for dvt. I have a dairy intolerance and have begun getting esophageal spasms and stomach cramps again. (My normal reaction to dairy). i saw that xarelto contains lactose. Can I take a lactaid with it? If so how long before or after medicine? ## I don't think there should be an issue, since the lactose isn't an active ingredient, but I'd suggest double checking to be sure. However, you might just be experiencing some side effects from the Xarelto, many people have been complaining about experiencing odd ones, such as nausea, heartburn, GERD, joint aches and muscle aches. Has anyone else had a lactose intolerance issue from it?

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

VERY disturbing side effect
I am 63 years old, married and began taking Androgel to improve flagging performance. Recently I have found myself curious about child pornography. This is completely foreign and disturbing to me and I have to assume it is related to increased testosterone levels somehow. It is not something one mentions easily to their doctor but I am wondering if anyone feels comfortable enough here to relay similar concerns. If others have experienced similar, the word should be spread ## Hello, Joe! How are you? There have been many posts on here about testosterone replacement therapy and I have never read mention of this type of thing, before. If it was caused by higher testosterone levels, you should have experienced that, when your own natural levels were higher. I understand why you'd find i...

remeron and qsymia
has anyone taken Qsymia to loss the weight gained by being on Remeron (Mirtazapine)? ## Hello, Basset Gal! How are you? There are two issues here, the first is that it is never a good idea to take another medication to try to treat a side effect that has been caused by a different one. Doing that just tends to compound the side effect problems. And the second issue is that the weight problem will continue, as long you keep taking the Remeron, so you'd just really be trying to fight a losing battle. The best thing to do, if they Remeron has caused you to gain a significant amount of weight would be to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication, such as Prozac, that isn't known to cause weight gain. Side effects to it may include nausea, dizziness, headache and weigh...

started my period today
If my period start on a Fri. should I start taking the first pill that says start and tale thevery first pill Sunday? ## Even if you didn't start your period on a Sunday, you should take the first active tablet the first day of your period. That will provide immediate protection against pregnancy. The only exception to this would be if your doctor has instructed you otherwise. Oral contraceptives may cause side effects, such as headache, irritability, bloating and irregular bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

wife needs her meds
My wife as been taking oxicodone 30,s for many years for her multiple pain issues.Does anyone know of a doc willing to perscribe in the Shreveport/East Texas ares? ## Hello, Bill! How are you and your wife? IF she requires such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, she'll need to see a pain management specialist, a general practice doctor will not be able to prescribe it. Does she have a PCP that she sees regularly who may be able to give her a referral? 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. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? There are no guarantees, of course, that any doctor ...

End of bottle effectiveness?
OK. Kind of a weird question but has anyone noticed their androgel losing effectiveness toward the end of the bottle? I know I'm not imagining things. I'll start to feel droopy and my muscles hurt. I'll mention it to my wife and the first thing she'll ask is - are you at the bottom of the bottle again - and sure enough I am. Was really hurting this week - switched to a full bottle and feel better already. Thoughts? Your experience? ## Hello, Tooslowjoe! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you've had. Liquids, gels and ointments do tend to degrade much faster than other forms of medications, but I'm not finding any other reports of this issue. I know they usually say that shaking it or anything isn't necessary, but perhaps from now on try gently ...

Pharmacy to fill 30mg oxycodone in/near Los Angeles
Hi, I'm a chronic pain patient and have been taking this medication for about 4 months, but this last time I have not been able to find any pharmacy to fill my prescription at. Is there anyone who knows a pharmacy in or around los angeles or neighboring cities that will fill an rx for 60 30mg oxycodone? I can't drive around and shop store to store since the pain I am in prohibits me from doing so. I've been to about 20 places without luck. Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you! ## I need a pain doctor in Phoenix. I just found out all the pain. management places are really rehab's so I don't go to them. I'm not a criminal, I've been a regular patient for 4 years. My pain med doc just up and dumped me because my pain was too high in one arm and i a...

kansas city pain management using narcotics
I have rsd/crps, my pain management physician is moving, my disease involves bilateral hands and feet, my right shoulder is bone on bone and is not repairable, i need to find a pain management physician in the kansas city or springfield mo area that utilizes a written contract for narcotic pain management ## Hello, Kay! How are you? Just a warning: If you contact places and ask them about prescribing narcotics, before you're a patient, most will view that as being drug seeking behavior and won't even let you get in the door. So, if you do get a good recommendation, you'll want to wait, until you are at an appointment with them, to discuss your treatment options. I'm not saying you're doing this, I'm just letting you know, in case. And with any doctor, there's...

xanax blue pill oval 605
So I got some of these Xanax. Where I'm from we call them footballs. I recently started taking hydrocodone and now have been having withdrawals without them. Do you think these footballs will help me quit hydrocodone? I've never had withdrawals from Xanax in all my years of taking them. I definitely don't want the withdrawals from the norcos tho and I'd like to quit ASAP considering that I've only been taking them for about a month. Different kinds of course the white 365 & 367, the yellow 10s, and now the white with red dots. The white with red dots really cause me to withdraw.

doctors who prescribe tramadol

I have learned that many Doctors will not prescribe Tramadol and need help finding someone in my area that will. ## Hello, Wendy! How are you?

adderall 20mg
i am trying to identify a small light blue pill with N008 on one side and a score in the middle of the other side. I was told that it is a 20mg Adderall. I have seen blue Adderall but they are 10mg. ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? The round, blue tablet with the N008 marking actually contains 20mgs of Propranolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, certain cardiac conditions and some migraines. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, hypotension and dry cough. Is there anything else I can help with?

Lost my pain management Doctor need a new one in Central Virginia
I have just lost my pain doctor in Central Virginia that I had for 14 years. I am looking for a good honest doctor that can help me. I am on 15 types of meds for different health issues such as fibromyalgia, chronic back and neck pain, depression, asthma, RSD, diverticulitis and more. Please advise if you know of a good pain management doctor ## Hello, Garfield! How are you? I'm very sorry that you've run into such a problem. Do you have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, they might be able to refer you to a good doctor. Most aren't going to be willing to treat all of your conditions, so you'll likely need to see several specialists. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area?

pharmacies that will fill oxycodone in tx from ohio
moved to tx and am on ohio workers comp ohio doctor sent me persciption but no one in tx will fill it ## Hello, Mark! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, it isn't likely that you're going to find a pharmacy there that will fill it. Due to the need to be able to verify such prescriptions, as well as the mandatory supply limits, most pharmacies are going to require that you and your doctor all be located with a certain radius of their location. 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. It might be easier to get yourself set up with a local doctor and then have them coordinate with the other doctor, so they can writ...
