hydrocodone expiration
2 Replies RSS
I found hydrocodone 7.5 and it from 1997 is it dangerous to take because of the tylonel or ibuprofen in it?? ## Hi Jb, While there may be a lot of conflicting information around the topic of expired medication, a Harvard Medical School family health article states that, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. I don't know whether or not the drug you have happens to be one of these drugs from the study....

6 Replies RSS
I am taking 4 mg every 4 hours total 24 mg daily for migraine treatment (yes Im aware this not ideal , but is only treatment that keeps me from daily migraines) ( I have been seen by 32 specialist and taken every treatment available and found this is only one that works for me).Anyways over the last 10 days I have been trying to lower my dose because I am so tired and afraid it may be causing damage to my body.

It has been hard mentally and physically but I was able to take it UNTIL I suddenly got the most unbareable stomach cramping! It feels like I have a brick and a beach ball fighting in my gut and niether can get out! Nothing has helped and after about about 24 hours I had to go to hospital and get them ...

SETTING RECORD STRAIGHT!! how long after taking subutex can u take methadone
2 Replies RSS
Both subutex and suboxone will cause precipitated withdrawal. It is the bupe that connects to the receptors and kicks the methadone out. Naloxone is just an extra blocker!! I am a social worker at a clinic. Waiting at least 12 hours only if on low dose 20mg or less should b OK. But 24 preferred. ## If you take a little less then half of a 8mg subutext 15 hours ago is it safe to take 20mgs of methadone does anyone know! ! ! ## Why do people always minimize Naloxone? EMTs give the ODs Narcan, which brings the patient into withdrawal. Naltrexone (Vivitrol) has been used with chronic opiate addicts and alcoholics in several forms, pill, 30 day shot, implant. It is a VERY strong blocker and has many side effects. I have personal experience with this medication & know that it is not somet...

bendictine
532 Replies RSS
I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

white round pill with c 22 imprint
3 Replies RSS
Pharmacy gave me these supposed to be topirimate but i can't find them anywhere and I've never had any like these. Help please? ## The imprint is c 22 and there small white round pills, c on one side 22 on the other ## Hello, Misty! How are you? Are you sure it's a C? Is it possibly an E? Can you please double check and post back? There is a round, white tablet with an E on one side and 22 on the other that's manufactured by Aurobindo Pharmac, which they list as containing 25mgs of Topiramate. The FDA classifies this medication as an anticonvulsant that is also used to treat/prevent migraines and for weight loss. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, weight loss, menstrual changes and memory loss. ## I'm positive it's a c on one side an...

is hydromorphone the same as iv dilaudid
2 Replies RSS
Is hydromorphone the same as dilaudid I've. ## @Biglou, Hydromorphone is the generic name for Dilaudid (brand name), so yes, they are the same drug in that sense. However not all dosage forms are IV-based. For example, I've seen 4mg Dilaudid tablets in person and have also heard of patients taking 2 to 8mg tablets throughout this forum. One other thing to note is that they do make a brand called "Dilaudid-HP" (Hydromorphone Hydrochloride Inj.) which is marketed for intravenous use. Although, I have yet to find out if there is a generic form of the IV as well. Hope this helps answer your question! ## Regarding the post of Hydromorphine IV and dilaudulid: they are the same medication. I was on Dilaudid, (generic name) Exalgo ER 8 mg oral for chronic pain. While in hospital...

pill with 230 on one side and a wierd symbol on back
33 Replies RSS
i found this in my sons room and want to know what it is its round white with 230 on one side and a funny shape on back ## There is a light yellow, round tablet with the Alvogen logo and the numbers 230 on the opposite side that contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, a generic for Percocet, it is narcotic pain reliever. Learn more Percocet details here. Has this medication ever been prescribed for him? ## I am glad that your site showed this medication on the web, as I could not find it. I was told it was a generic for Percocet. 10-325, also known as oxycodone-acetamine 10-325. Even though this should have been very easy to find on all of the various pill/medication websites available, it was not. I myself have never seen this variation of Percocet 10/325, and was hesi...

myrtle beach
5 Replies RSS
Hi I recently moved to myrtle beach and am looking for a doctor who will prescribe xanax or kolonopin. I have currently been on xanax for the past year or so and it has helped me a great deal (before xanax I was on kolonopin and it also to some extent). As of now I'm having to drive 3 hours to my old doctor to keep getting it. The doctors I've spoken to down here have told me they MAY continue to prescribe it to me but before they will even consider I have to come in and pay for an evaluation which is 300$ Which is completely understandable HOWEVER, even after that there is no guarantee that they will continue to prescribe the same doseage or even the same medication that I am currently on. I have tried countless others and I've only had success with xanax and kolonopin, and...

Psychiatrists IN Tucson?
Post a Reply
Does anyone have a doctor who would easily prescribe me Xanax? I have had success in treating my panic attacks with it in the past, but my current nurse practitioner will not change me off my lorazepam Rx. Ativan makes me tired and does not have the same helpful effect thst alprazolam did. Thank you!
