New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on???!?
39 Replies RSS
Hello all, I am a longtime chronic pain sufferer. I have taken opiates for pain for over 10 years. I recently got a prescription filled (from a well known pharmacy chain in the U.S.) and I was given these new Watson 853 white (not yellow) hydro 10/325 pills. I wanted to ask the forum here if any of you have had the same experience with them as I have. I know there are some very smart people with advanced chemistry knowledge here that may have delved deeper into whats going on with these things. They are ineffective for me. I've taken hydrocodone 10/325 for 10+ years and have never ever had a problem with pills being ineffective but that is the case with these pills. I've had about every brand you can think of and never an issue. Ever. I thought nothing of the color change when I...

fentanyl patch wearing out
10 Replies RSS
Hello. I am on the fentanyl patch, 125mcg every 72 hours. And ever since starting the patch I have been able to once again be more active. I exercise for an hour every morning and walk in the evening. My dr said the patch will last me 72 hours but by 48 and sometimes less, my pain begins to return and I start feeling withdrawl symptoms I use to feel on oxy or percs. I've tried telling my dr that I need to change every 2 days but he insists that this does not happen to anyone else. Does anyone here have the same issues? And are you feeling better results from different brands of the patch? ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? Your morning exercising may be causing the problem. There are actually warnings with the Fentanyl patch that tell you that anything you get hot, sweaty or overheated...

tramadol amneal vs mylan
30 Replies RSS
all our pharms here have switched to amneal.doesnt do a thing except give a headache. brand does make a differance.the mylan works great. ## Yes, there can be differences in generic medications. Once a medication is available to be made a generic, it is allowed to differ, in the active ingredient, from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20%. The FDA considers this an acceptable therapeutic window. The problem that you can run into, of course, is that generics do not have to measure against each other, just against the name brand. This means that while one generic may be high quality and contain 100mgs of a given medication, another generic may only contain 80mgs and another could contain 120mgs. Not everyone is sensitive to such changes and most people don't even notice, how...

Hello Ive Been On The Fentanyl Patchfor About 11 Years Starting At 25 Mcg Now 75 For Last 2 Yearsthe Problem Is It Does Help But Pain Iam I
10 Replies RSS
Besides being on the patch. It seems after the second day on. the night before I chang it every 3 days. I have much pain, and can not sleep. Where I live, not many stock this , and it seems I get a different one(brand) every month. My actual question is. Can I get the patch and use every two days, instead of three?? It would make my life ,so much better, and always having to call DR. a day or two for visit. I know I had read it takes some time without it. Not for me. I feel the withdrawls within 10-12 hours. Thank You. ## Yes, it can be changes as often as every 48 hours, instead of every 72. There are many people that have to use it that way, especially once they become tolerant to the higher dosage every 3 days and it is no longer effective, which seems to be exactly what you're e...

Viibryd Withdrawal -- how i felt
18 Replies RSS
Stopping Viibryd: From 40mg I tapered down to 7 days of 20mg followed by 7 days of 10mg. The biggest side effect I felt was mostly irritability and anxiety. I was able to go into work but tried to keep to myself. I felt sick. Didn't want to socialize. When I finally stopped the med completely it was pretty bad. I'm on day 6 now. Have been unable to work, drive or leave my house ... for fear of ending up in jail or hospital from flipping out. I feel a constant anger and want to break things, and have yelled at the top of my lungs to two people on the phone. I feel disoriented, dizzy, itchy, and confused (itchiness was actually nothing new for me). I'm confined to my house until further notice. Very unpleasant! ## Hi gistell, Sorry to hear about your situation with Viibryd. Th...

LOOKING FOR LORAZEPAM THAT IS EXACTLY LIKE WATSON BRAND
16 Replies RSS
I've been taking Watson Pharmaceuticals Lorazepam and it worked great. Apparently, Actavis just took over Watson, and Watson no longer exists. I'm looking for another bran of Lorazepam that has the same Active & Inactive ingredients as the Watson brand, however, I can't locate the info on line and my pharmacy won't help me. Does anyone know what other manufacturer carries Lorazepam that is exactly the same as the Watson brand. Actavis and Sandoz manufacturer's Lorazepam does not work. ## Well, you're pharmacy won't help, because if the active ingredient is the same, they are considered the same. The inactive ingredients are called such for a reason, they don't affect the drug. How long have you been taking your current dose? It is possible that you...

ceti slim
4 Replies RSS
sliming tablet ## Hi Priyanka, How are you? I didn't notice too much information in your description. Is there something in particular that you want to know about this slimming tablet? From what I could gather, Cetislim (Cetilistat) is reported to be used as a treatment for obesity. According to wikipedia, it works by inhibiting an enzyme in the GI tract that metabolizes triglycerides. This, in turn, allows triglycerides to be excreted or pass through going undigested. I hope this info helps! ## I want to know about cetislim capsules .Are the capsules steroid based? if not what's the side effects and when it occures ?somebody told me about that side effects will be seen after some years and there will be no medication forts it. Is it true? ## I also want to know about side effec...

Stopping Levothyroxine
68 Replies RSS
I have been taking Levothyroxine .88mg for the past two years. I just left town on a three week vacation and realized I left this prescription at home. Should I be concerned? ## If you suddenly stop taking Levothyroxine, your body can go through withdrawal. "Levothyroxine withdrawal may cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, fatigue, depression and sensitivity to cold because your body does not have enough thyroid hormone so your body processes slow down. Patients with thyroid cancer may suffer acute hypothyroidism because of levothyroxine withdrawal." Referenced from: livestrong.com/article/levothyroxine-withdrawal Since you've been taking this medication for so long, I would consider contacting your doctor about this if you have be...
