Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
124 Replies RSS
Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

Prepopik
192 Replies RSS
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 ...

Pfizer xanax 2mg fake or real
8 Replies RSS
So I bought a 100 pack a few days ago of some Pfizer xanax with the 2 on the back. (Or what I thought it was). I rarely take benzos ever so my tolerance is so low that if I take 1 bar & sit down too long I go to sleep. The first night I got them I took 1 slept like a baby, next day took 2 slept all day. The next day I can't remember how many I took, but I was drinking so I can't remember. Thing is today I'm at work & have been breaking little pieces off periodically through the day & feel no effects whatsoever so far. I normally can barely handle one & I'm on at least 2 maybe 2 & 1/4 today & feel normal. Also most xanax I've had is horribly bitter, this pill does have the same bitter taste but not nearly as strong, & goes away very fast. C...

Amneal Pharmaceuticals Hydrocodone 10-325
8 Replies RSS
I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 (made by Watson) for about a year. I picked up my prescription yesterday and instead of the normal yellow pill, I received a white oblong pill imprinted with m367 on it. I took 2 for breakthrough pain and had no relief what-so-ever. I called the pharmacy and was told that they will no longer be able to get the med from Watson. Does anyone know what has happened? I have chronic pain, and these white ones from Amneal Pharmaceuticals is not going to cut it. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Dano! How are you? There's no way to know which manufacturer's product your pharmacy will carry at any given time. You might be better served to talk to your doctor about trying a different medication. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the po...

Northstar Rx
20 Replies RSS
Has anyone had problems with lamotrigine (generic Lamictal) manufactured by Northstar Rx ## My pharmacy changed my Teva brand of Lamotrigine to North Star brand. Has anyone noticed a difference with the difference switching brands? ## Yes. I take lamotrigine for bi-polar depression. I have found that the Northstar version of the drug doesn't work. I took it and my mood crashed. Then I got back on the Teva made lamotrigine, and my mood stabilized. I believe the Northstar product in effective. Try to get your prescribing physician to write "Teva - DAW" on your script. ## My original Hyzaar was refilled by mail with Losartan Hctz 100 by Northstar and I think I'm having serious side effects that I just now attribute to the bp med. My legs are cramping; hip joints hurt; panti...

Watson 3203 White Oval w/ no specks for Pain?
3 Replies RSS
I have a white pill here labeled WATSON 3203. The bottle also says 7.5/325 T. my question is this: I gave some back pain and a minor tooth ache. Ibuprofen never works. I know this is a hydrocodone/acetaminophen pill. Says it on the bottle. How much do I take? It's fairly small. I'm 5"7 and about 350lbs. I remember taking a Lortab a long time ago for pain but not sure as to what dosage it was. For this, do you recommend I take half now or the whole thing. ## Hello, Bamboo! How are you? Yes, to be specific it contains 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. You should never take more than prescribed,...

levothyroxine and exercising
Post a Reply
Hi, I have been on 100mg of thyroxine for around 2yrs now after a total thyroidectomy. I have recently decided to get fit and have started jogging, the first week I felt great and really motivated, now I seem to have crashed and feel lethargic. Just wondering if anyone knows if starting exercising regularly could affect the amount of thyroxine I need?? Or is the exercise just catching up with me lol

Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess.

accutane long term side effects
1740 Replies RSS
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

metoprolol withdrawal
344 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...
