side effects of lyrica
I have just started this medication for acute jaw nerve pain. i have just read all about it. sounds like a terrible drug with weight gain, depresion, etc. can you give me more details please. i am already on citilapram 30mgs a day ## Hello, Jacky! How are you? Yes, there is a risk of such side effects with it, but the thing you have to be aware of is that not everyone experiences them. Some people may run the gamut of all the side effects, but others may not have any. It all depends on you and your body. Do you normally experience a lot of them?

how nexito works for anxiety patients
My husband cought attack of anxiety in 2009. That time dr prescribed Nexito LS since he is taking every night half tab. But now he want stop I can't he feels uneasyness pls suggest ## Hello, Anita! How is your husband doing? If he has been taking it for years, then it would be normal to have withdrawal effects, if he tries to stop suddenly. A slow tapering is usually best, to prevent him from feeling the withdrawal symptoms. Has he consulted his doctor? They should be able to help him set up a good and safe tapering schedule. Usually, the modern method is to have the person start skipping days, like taking it every other day for a week, then skipping every 2 days and so on.

channel blocker, calcium antagonitic
Prescription of zandip 20 mg , physiotens 0.4mg, karvezide 300 mg for high b.p ( 180/80). Recently added verpamil hydrochloride SR 240 mg trial with 0.4 mg physiotens, karvezide and Zanadip 10 mg. is this combo compatible? There is not much improvement. ## Are you also watching your diet? If you're sodium sensitive, then that could cause blood pressure elevation. Do you also get lots of proper exercise? That is also vital to blood pressure control. You really can't just take medications and expect them to do all of the work. What types of foods do you normally eat? Do you have any other medical conditions?

can clinics stop your take homes if you want to raise dose
Hi. I live in Michigan. I've been on methadone for about twelve years, clean for about nine years. I've been at my current clinic for seven years. I'm on biweekly take homes, but I could have monthly any time I choose to switch. My UA has been clean those seven years. Lately I've been sick sooner. I have not taken any drugs, just my met. The last time I mentioned raising my dose I was told that my take homes would be taken away because if you raise your dose it shows you are not stable. Is this something a clinic can do? I haven't found much literature on this topic and I know that federal and state regs are different. Any legitimate info or direction would be appreciated. Thank you! ## They are all under certain federal regulations, regardless of what state they are...

Doctor for pain
I need a doctor to write my prescriptions here in ms or al or Louisiana, I have cronic pain from my RA, my back and neck were injured a while back but I was hit by a drunk driver so my pain is 10 times worse.

please help: need answers to get off dilaudid
I have been taking 3 to 4 8mg (24-32mgs) Dilaudid pills at 1 time usually around 3:00pm everyday for about 2 1/2 years now for back and nerve damage and would like to know the best way, medication, and dosage to get off this drug, also how long and how bad I will feel detoxing.

oxycodone 30mg pill with 48/12 v
Do the 30 mg oxycodone pills with 48/12 v contain any format of gluten? ## Hello, Kris! How are you? No, it appears that the type of starch in this is listed as being derived from potato. 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?

hydroxyzine expiration quantity
Should I take an extra pill since it's expired? ## Hello, LoSam! How are you? When did it expire? Doubling up wouldn't be advisable, because if it is still effective, that may result in far too much sedation and depression of the central nervous system, which could put in you danger, due to lowered heart rate and blood pressure.

white round pill 155 crescent moon
Can this generic form of Suboxone be split into 4 doses and still be somewhat effective in helping me with all my withdrawal symptoms? (Which are pretty awful) ## Hello, Dianna! How are you? It would be best to take it as prescribed by your doctor to avoid the withdrawals. Taking lower doses won't really help much and isn't going to prevent the cravings associated with addiction. 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?

i can t find the generic form of fiorinal in tablet from are they still making them
I know the Westward brand-they are no longer making-but CVS has told me they can't get the tablet form of the generic brand of fiorinal-so I have to look elsewhere ## Hello, Suz! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having! And no, the tablets are no longer available, just the capsules. There have been many people that don't like them as well, or who feel they don't work as well, but there's really nothing that can be done about it. Have you tried any other medications? Perhaps your doctor can help you find an alternative.
