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....

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

swelling in legs and feet levothyroxin
just started taking Levothyroxin 2 wks ago my legs and feet are swollen so bad by nite I can barley walk they go down a little at nite but swell back. Iam taking 25mcg,has any one else had this problem? Iam afraid to continue taking this med. has any one else had this problem? ## Have you contacted your doctor? It sounds like you might be having a bad reaction to this medication and it may not be the right one for you, or may be too high of a dosage. Generally, the symptoms of a dosage being too high will start to manifest 6 days or so, after you start taking it and this type of fluid retention can be one of them and there is a chance that it could lead to congestive heart failure, if that's what's causing it and it isn't rectified. You should really contact your doctor imme...

drinking on Lexapro
I was just wondering if anyone has drank with this med and were there any side effects ? I've been on lexapro 10 mil for a month and am feeling great but I am petrified to even atempt to drink alcohol,but would like to try . So if anyone could help that would be great. ## I have been on Lexapro for 3 years. I drink about twice a week and everything seems to be fine. I have noticed that if you drink heavly for a few nights in a row you will feel a slight depression. Just don't over do it. I was worried at first also. ## Lexapro is an antidepressant. Drinking alcohol is not recommended, as alcohol is a major depressant, and undoes the work the medication does. ## Never do that! I was on that medicine for 2 years, and I was never able to drink! the first time I drank when I was on ...

how to find a doctor prescribe xanax in phoenix
Son is 24 and has high anxiety, was through chemo many years ago, things not the same. Dr here in Phoenix area we went to gave him xanex and then said to that Zoloft. No way in he is taking that. He only wants like 1 pill every couple of days or so. This is an extremely talented individual that has had a serious lack of motivation and energy since going through the chemo and radiation. Dr. prescribed and wouldn't refill without ANOTHER $75 appointment and said he would need to do that monthly or even less. Said it's controlled substance. However he knows others who have regular prescriptions and he really needs it. The system sucks and now it really sucks.

Norco10-325
What the difference in the yellow Norco 10-325mg and the white Norco10-325mg ## Hello, Fred! How are you? They are just manufactured by different companies, which is common with generic medications. 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've used the yellow ones with a check mark on them for years and they work good. Years ago I use yellow Watson's and they worked really good and fast. I had the white Watson's this year and they work fast but don't seem to last as long. Just my opinion, stick with the yellow ones.

i need a doctor to prescribe me alprazolam for my chronic anxiety
I've have for lower back surgeries in the last 12 years. I do not need opiates I have an extreme anxiety problem and I am trying to fine a Dr in Spokane Washington ## Hello, Anna! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. If you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist, a general practice physician won't be able to prescribe it for you. Thus, for anxiety treatment, you'll need to see a psychiatrist. Xanax is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Since it is a controlled substance that is frequently abused, you also just can...

amphetamine er 20mg suddenly stopped working
Short history, when I was younger, I struggled so much with attentiveness, motivation, understanding, etc. My teacher thought it would be best if I stayed behind so they can better help me. I did stay back but I was not helped. Of course I did not know this atthe ttime. Couple of years later I'm still doing poorly and I did not know why. Some time later, I heard of adhd. And the similarities were spot on but, I was embarrassed to admit it and instead I wrote it off as me being lazy. After awhile I accepted it as my reality and completely convinced myself this is what it was. This made for years of agonizing school time. Barley passing and only advancing due to no child left behind. Afterwards, my life was filled with losing jobs and just messing everything up when the opportunity ar...

ratio metformin 500 mg
Have two refills -180 tablets and they smell really bad -like dead fish. Returned to Pharmacy. Why the smell and how much of the risk for me? Thank you. ## Hello, Neb! How are you? There is no risk to you and there is nothing wrong with those tablets. Metformin actually does smell horrible, it's just that some manufacturers use a coating on them to prevent the odor. This is an oral antidiabetic medication that's most commonly used to help lower and control blood sugar levels. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, flatulence, diarrhea and hypoglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you ,all I was wondering if it is safe to use it. Thanks again.

I'm very sorry that you're in pain. I'm assuming you mean Beaumont, TX? If you require regular, ongoing treatment for chronic pain, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. There are also no guarantees that such a doctor will prescribe anything. You'll need to set up an appointment, make sure they receive a full copy of your current medical records and then discuss your treatment options at your appointment. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that ...

hydrocodone 10 325 - Works well for me - Having trouble with Doctors prescribing it now.
I have been on different dosages of Norco/Vicodin for about 5 years, since I recovered from a serious illness. Over time, my doctors and I have tried an enormous amount of different combinations of drugs to relieve the chronic pain along with the other symptoms. I finally found a combination that works for me, however I'm having difficulty with doctors prescribing the hydrocodone acetaminophen 10-325. Is this because of the rise in illegal sales of the drug? I used to be on 4 a day and now with the Lyrica and low dose Voltaren, 2 a day works excellent. I haven't been this productive, or felt even remotely useful for so long. Are there any substitutes equivalent to the Norco, or even close that doctors aren't so hesitant to prescribe? ## Hello, Jo! How are you? Yes, new regul...
