Divalproex 500 Mg
how to wean off of Divalproex. What to do and expect? ## It should usually be tapered slowly, because stopping too fast can cause rebound effects, which may include mania, depression and seizures. Learn more Divalproex details here. Even if tapered slowly, some rebound depression and lethargy is still likely to occur, because it may take awhile for your body to readjust to no longer having the medication. Have you consulted your doctor for advice? They'd be the best qualified person to help you set up a proper tapering schedule. ## I got my Divalproex 500 Mg today from a different pharmacy and it wasn't the same pill. It was light blue with M945 on it. The kind that I have been taking is pink with 798 on it. Are they the same medication just made by two different companies or ar...

Thyronorm 25mcg Side Effects
Doc has recommended me Thyr 25 mcg. My TSH has been fluctuating from 26 to 13 to now 5 without medication. I have no symptoms though. I want to know abt possible side effects. Weight gain is because of underactive thyroid i guess, so why medicine would cause it? ## When you take a medication, you are adding a chemical or chemicals to the body that it isn't used to having, its reaction to such substances is what causes the side effects to occur. You can learn more about the medication and other possible side effects here: Are there any other questions or comments? ## m i allergic to thyronorm 25mcg because i have itching on my full body ## suitable time for taking Thyronorm 25 mcg..please suggest. ## i have problem in 2 years it can start(headack), last two two days i got fever heada...

Fentanyl Withdrawal - Day 7 w/ intermittent Norco: Anyone have ideas how much longer?
I was on 75mcg since about March of 2013 for a comp injury. It was a game changer b/c it allowed me to walk again, pain free. But, in the end it became a necessary evil. Drs wouldn't touch me b/c I was on it. No pain control after surgeries, etc. I've wanted off of it for some time and finally started a taper a few months back under the supervision of a pharmacist and doctor. The plan was to taper me down a little then switch me to the Butrans patch. HOWEVER, due to comp/insurance issues, I was forced to STOP it completely at a 50 mcg as of Friday, tho I was given Norco to take the edge off. Night before last was the worst. My body wouldn't "settle down", if you will, but there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it. I also had a new type of pain in my hands/calves

maximum take home bottles from clinic
Im wondering what the maximum take homes your state allows? Im in Pennsylvania and been on MMT for 4 years and clean for almost all 4. We only get a week, 6 take homes and one to drink at clinic. West virginia is where I live and they allow up to 28 bottles, well that might have been cut to 14, not sure. I actually pass that clinic on the way to the one in Pa, its 20 mins further but just easier to deal with the people in Pa. I travel for my job and wanted to know what different states allow or your clinic allows after so much clean time. Id like to transfer where I an get the months at once so I dont have to be stuck every week not being able to leave for longer periods of time. It limits my earning potential. Thanks for any input. ## Hello, Jake! How are you? I'm sorry, but under ...

Antiobiotic or Tooth Infection Not Working
Tooth Pain/Root Canal/Crown/Antibiotics Not Working/Severe Pain Just over a year ago I had a root canal and a crown on the same tooth. On and off when I would floss there was a little blood and the crown felt a little 'off.' But I had no problem chewing. Now these many months later out of nowhere-I wake in severe pain in THAT area. Anything bothers it. I mean anything. I'm in severe pain. I know pain as I am a patient with spine issues. Anyway I try to wait it out to see if it's temporary, I was afterall raised this way but after two, then three days, I can't take it anymore and the Orajel is NOT doing its thing. I call the dentist. Gets me in pretty quick. Thank you! Xrays taken, takes a look, cannot see anything. Prescribes antibiotics. After two and a half days, than

can sulfameth trimeth ds 800 160 trigger psoriasis?
I was prescribed sulfameth trimeth ds 800 160, taking 2 tablets twice a day for 10 days to treat an infection located on the top of my foot. I completed taking all the pills as directed, two days later I was feeling drowsy and nausea and developed a rash over a large area of my abdomen and arms. If the rash is a side effect of the antibiotic how should I treat it? Doctors believe I have developed psoriasis could they be wrong? ## Hello, Adriano! How are you? This antibiotic can cause a rash, as a side effect. If it is due to taking it, then it should go away on its own after you've been off of it for about 2 weeks. If it doesn't improve, after that time, then you'll need to see your doctor for treatment. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you? I am very sorry about the problems that you're having. If you require a medication like Klonopin, on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. The best thing to do would be to set yourself up with a PCP and then have them refer you to someone. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area?
