how long does it take for the loriderm patch to leave your system
My dad (85 years old) was prescribed the loriderm patch for severe arthritis back pain and I noticed after he wore the patch for a few days he started to halucinate and was confused and very nervious so at the hospital they took the patch off. How long does it take for the medication to get out of your system?

pharmacy vyvanse adderall
I am prescribed Adderall by my PCP. I see a psychologist also. He prescribed Vyvnase to me. I have attempted to fill the prescription for Vyvanse and the pharmacist refused. Should I find another pharmacy? I do have health insurance. and can't afford to pay cash. I am having problems with my job, and can't afford to loose it. I certainly think that I need to at least the Vyvanse to get my ADD under control. I am in Macon, Ga. Thanks in advance for any assistance/advice.

Fentanyl Patches, Lots of questions, Please read for me ~~
Hi All ~ Thanks for reading and possibly helping me out ! First a quick summery, 2 failed back surgery's, L3, L4, & L5 ~ 6 bolts and screws, except, in L5, apparently, I have a screw floating, not attached. 2 Doctors, saw the X-Ray, neither of them, seemed concerned. It's not floating, it has been in the same position for 2 years now. The last 2 1/2 months, actually, I have to see him, every 22 days another story, another day, as to why, the short leash. Anyway last 2 1/2 months, I am suffering so much more, my normal pain level, (which is when I am at my best) is a 4, I don't recall a day, that's been pain free for me. But I can't get to my level, I am now 6,7, and sometimes 8 ~ I can't stand longer than 15 minutes TOPS ~ On top of my normal back pain, I hav...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

My body very thin? My weight 46 kg and my age 38. How can i increase my body by medicine. I m living in france.
I m shahin. My age 28 and weight 46. I m very thin and skiny. I want to increase my body by medicine . Which one is better for me. Please say me detail. I m living in france. ## Using a medication solely to gain weight isn't a safe idea, they all carry the risk of causing side effects and possibly serious medial issues. The best and safest way to do it, if you feel you really need to gain weight is get plenty of exercise, take a high potency vitamin supplement to add back anything you may be missing and eat a healthy, but high calorie, high protein diet. Have you consulted your doctor? They can also probably help you with a few more suggestions. How tall are you? ## I want my weight increase,initially weigh 68kg but now 55kg and people are complaining about my wt. Am 6.5l tall and 3...

white oblong pill a333 what is it
yeah it is supposed to be a percocet but feels more like a hydrocodone to me ## I agree. It feels like a hydrocodone to me too. It doesn't work nearly as well as the generic Watson 932 I have been taking for pain. ## The pill marked "A333" is in fact listed as generic Percocet (10/325), but I think many others would agree with you that its effects aren't quite up to par with what you would normally expect from this medication. Ever since Actavis bought out Watson, there seems to have been a downgrade in the sheer potency/efficacy of all their pain medications. The FDA also allows a pretty significant variability (20-25%) of the amount of active ingredients found in generic medications. So one scenario could be that Actavis is taking advantage of that and putting the lowe...

ELIQUIS: Stomach Pain, Abdominal Swelling, Bloating, Gas
Have been taking Eliquis 5 mg 2x day for almost 3 months. Seem to be having Stomach Pain, Abdominal Swelling, Bloating, Gas, Facial Swelling and lots of weight gain and water retention. Also brain fog and memory problems. (It's hard to tell how much of this is from Eliquis and how much from CHF associated with A-Fib. Also taking Beta Blocker and Digoxin.) Eliquis has been out long enough for the pharmaceutical company (BMS) to put out a REVISED list of side-effects, to reflect real-life patients' experiences. Wonder if they have done so, or when they'll do so? Am probably going to switch to Xarelto and stop the Eliquis, in hopes that the Xarelto will cause fewer problems. ## You might want to rethink that decison, Afibber. Here is what the pharmacists say: Examining the Comp...

Phoenix AZ Need Doctor Who Will Write Shoret Term Xanax, Ativan, Klonipin for Tremors??
I am stuck in a horrible limbo land. My old doctor suspected I may have MS and suggested I see a neurologist. I agreed and had to wait 18 months to make the appointment because I've spent all my money tracking down every symptom over the past 8 years. Now I got in to see the neuro at Barrows but he only said he has to get MRI scan before he write any prescription. That was fine except he never wrote the order and I spent 3 weeks calling and begging. Finally got order but no scan till June. Now this MS has gotten so bad I cannot drive or work, I shake non-stop, The shaking is so bad I have broken 2 teeth in the past 2 weeks, He said it was OK to take xanax for shaking which I did because I had an old script for it from back in 2006. I called his nurse to ask now what since I used the...
