What Is Better Watson Lorcet 10 Or Norco10/325 and whats the difference
What is better Watson Lorcet 10 Or Norco10/325 and whats the difference in the two? ## If the dosage is the same, then the only difference is who has manufactured it. Both contain Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen, the Hydrocodone is a narcotic pain reliever. Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Are there any other questions? ## my doctor had me on lorcet 10/650 and change to lorcet 10/325 what's the different are they the same?I had three back surgery ## The only difference is the amount of acetaminophen contained in each pill. The 10/650 dose contains 650 mg's of acetaminophen and the 10/325 dose contains, you guessed it, 325 mg's. He had to switch because the FDA does not allow doses of acetaminophen over 500 mg's per pill, in any pill...

I'm trying to get off percocet can do it want soboxne but no insurance live in seattle help
I live in Seattle area I need help I don't have much money I want to get on a Soboxne program. I've tried quoting Percocet but I only make it a few days if anybody knows a cheap programs out here please help you can email me {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Ron! How are you? Unfortunately, since Suboxone is administered by private physicians, there are no cheap programs. Have you considered a Methadone clinic? It's usually a much cheaper route. 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 can contact Beckitt Renkiser, the maker of Suboxone. They will give it to you for 1 year free of charge. It's a one time offer. Or go to Patients assistance o...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

oblong brown pill no markings
found a soft cap brown elliptical pills with no markings in a bag outside the car of my daughters friend... any ideas what it could be? haven't been able to locate it on drug finder. ## I found 2 of these pills under my bed. Also wondering what they could be ## brown capsule no markings ## Tan oblong pill with greenish black liquid insipide capsule ## If there are no markings, it is difficult to track down what they are. Approximately how big are any of them that have been found? If they're tiny, I wonder if they may be Marinol and the marking is just too small to see. Since it's derived from THC, it's commonly diverted and abused in the mistaken belief that people might get high from it. Learn more Marinol details here. ## i have the same pills and its a diet pill, but ...

endocet vs oxycodone
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS AND MY DRUG STORE RAN OUT AND GAVE ME ENDOCET ?SAID IT WAS THE SAME THING BUT MY BODY TELLS ME THAT IT'S NOT THE SAME.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS CHANGE? ## in reply to jim, i have to agree, i have been taking oxycodone for a while now, and got a new script for endocet, and it does not do anywhere near as much as the last prescription did... ## Well, I am not sure what you were on previously, since you just say Oxycodone, but Endocet is a combination drug containing both Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. The reason you may be having a problem, however, is due to the fact that generic meds ARE allowed, by law, to differ from name brands by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%. They also DO NOT HAVE TO BE EXACTLY IDENTICAL. I know the doctor...

methadone m 57 71
Can I take the pill m 57 71 after I have use herion in the same day ## Dear London, I really wouldn't mix the 2 together. Wait until u r withdrawing b 4 u take the meth. U will get the best results that way. It can b very dangerous 2 mix the 2. Not 2 mention meth is an opiate, but, also prevents u from feeling the effect of other opiates. ## @London, if you're looking for a second opinion I will say that I do agree with the previous comment, in that, it may be a good idea to wait it out a little longer and not mix the two together without knowing how it's going to effect you. This may or may not help, but according to an article I found on nih.gov, A 5mg dose of H is said to be equivalent to approximately 20mg of orally ingested methadone. However, the article goes on to sta...

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.

Nitrofuran Monohyd Macro100mg
I am on day 3 OF NITROFURAN MONOHYD MACRO 100MG 100 mg for urinary track infection every 12hrs, I have problems with my stomach and have been prescribed DICYCLOMINE 10MG/5ML. (1/2 hr before meals) Is safe to take while taking NUTRIFURAN? ## Hi Virnia, Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Nitrofurantoin and Dicyclomine. So just going off that information alone, I don't think there should be any problems using the two together (outside of each medication's own general side effects). However, if you still have any reservations about taking them, it may be best to call your doctor up and verify that it's ok with him as well. Was it the same doctor who prescribed you the Nitrofurantoin, that also give you the script for Dicyclomine?

How to get off Suboxone successfully - Step by step
If you are struggling with getting off Suboxone successfully, you may want to take the time to read this. I have read a ton of hype about Suboxone being impossible to get off.

I have been free of Suboxone and all other drugs and alcohol for 3 months and I have never felt better in my life!!! THE WAY THAT SUCCESS HAPPENED FOR ME AND CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU: For months I read Suboxone blog sites in the effort to gather some element of hope that would encourage me to make the “jump” to get off my final 1/8 tab (1mg) of Suboxone.
