Oxycontin 60mg vs Oxycodone 60mg are they the same
I have been taking Oxycontin60mg but I am now in my coverage donut and can not afford my prescription. I had taken Oxycodone once before and it just didn't work as well. Was that phycological or is there a difference in the 2 medications. Run out of this months prescription in 3 days. Help. ## oxycontin = time released oxycodone. same drug. the time release will distribute the medication over a period of time, and without it the entire dose will be administered at once. ## Okay, I remove the incorrect information, because Pharma Guy is absolutely correct. They are the same medication, Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Oxycontin, the only operative factor is that it is in a controlled release formulation. So, whether or not the Oxycodone you get will work the same for you will al...

Find Pain Clinic

taking wellbutrin/buporion while pregnant
My doctor prescribed me buporion to help me quit smoking and I'm pragnant, will this drug harm my baby. ## Hi Mic, As a psychotherapist and a holistic health practitioner and a mother of two toddlers I want to encourage you to seek out alternative methods for quitting smoking than taking drugs. Even if there is a 1% chance that the medication can affect the baby, then it's worth finding another route. I'm all for keeping our babies drug free. Try hypnotherapy and/or acupuncture. They can be very helpful for smoking. It's disturbing to see how readily and frequently vulnerable people like children and pregnant women are given drugs when we still don't know the long term effects of these drugs on children and the fetus. So please listen to the part of you that is ambiv...

Taking suboxone while pregnant
I started taking suboxone in early June. 8mg/2mg strips. 1 1/2 a day. I didn't find out I was pregnant till around 14 weeks. That's a completely different story but luckily baby is safe due to being on birth control for about 7 weeks of me not knowing yet. Anyway I wanted to get off the subs so I left message after message for my OB and heard nothing back. I finally went in for my 18 week ultrasound. When I asked about OB about what was going on he seemed very confused. He has known about the suboxone but had no clue about me wanting to get off the med because the nurse never gave the messages to him. He advised me to stay on it for the safety of the baby. He said chances are he won't have withdrawals after birth but just incase it is easier for him to treat outside the womb...

find physician willing to prescribe Hydrocodone in montgomery alabama area
I posted earlier my difficulty in finding a physician that will write Lortab/Norco and that especially since I do not have insurance I can not afford to pay $100 just to be told they wont write any narcotic.I have all necessary documentation for my legitimate need for medication, I used to take 120 30 mg roxicette monthly so i am definitely not trying to obtain a ridiculous amount of meds, just need some relief, I cant afford to miss work because I'm hurting too much to get out of bed nor do I want to buy them off the street which we all know is possible. I just want to be written a realistic amount of medication by a physician that actually cares about his patient and not forcing me to take painful IV's so they can charge more. (I've already had one Dr. hit my sciatic nerve...

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
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. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Asthmanefrin Medicine Cup
Posted a few entries before. Still using the ultrasonic cleaner but with cold distilled water. Basically they give out in a few months and I have to buy another medicine cup. I wish Nephron would re-design this so it would last a lot longer. ## Hi Glenn, I believe I responded to one of your older entries on the site the last time you posted about this ultrasonic cleaner. Amazing that those medicine cups hold up as long as they do, but it sounds like a marketing ploy to get you to keep buying more if you ask me. One thought though is to contact the manufacturer directly and see if they have a "black box where suggestions go" - in hopes that they'll take the hint and run with it Lol. I posted a link to their contact page below: Do you know if any ot...

Stopped taking Effexor after one year.
I started Effexor in December of 2013 after having taken Prozac for years. I had a daughter in law diagnosed in October of that year with stage 4 breast cancer. Her husband, my son, has always had money problems, no matter how much he makes. My daughter in law is a great gal, and I was really pressured to spend money I didn't have, very stressful time for a 67 year old gal. I started with the Effexor because I was having trouble sleeping, started having hot flashes again, lots of mental anxiety. Recently I started having a clanging noise in my head, bowel problems, and really irritable and depressed. I went to have several tests done, all negative for any serious disease or health problem. The financial and health problems with my son and daughter in law have been taken care of the bes

I have a chronic pain issue for over a decade I have had to get new Doctors
I am a widow , & I moved to mid-America& I left a daughter behind. My youngest goes to MSU. I am an Author. I was on Vicodan 10/500 and they changed the laws and now only Norco is possible 10/325.For Chronic Nerve Pain. They had all my records. I Think they were ALL thrown away. The Qualitest Brand has fillers. I requested from my DR. Watson Norco..or NORCO ..not generic. I pay $1000 to a Man who I married in a faze of grief & doesn't do anything for me. I called Watson. They said to either ask my DR. for ONLY the Watson Brand or NORCO. Non Generic which would be $30. I've been getting my Norco , the Watson Brand. & Actually a Neurologist is supposed to be calling. I'm on huge amounts of Nuerontin and Hepatologist said it was Crap. You Must be You...

h86. Other alternative ideas
I was hoping to find more information on H 86. For those of you searching alternative cancer treatments, cancertutor is a good site to explore. It is well put together but doesn't appear to list any info on H 86. Does anyone else know more about this being used as a form of cancer treatment? ## @Caprial, According to some of the discussion threads here on this site, H-86 is just another name for (Avemar) fermented wheat germ extract. If you run a search for this, you may have better luck coming up with the type of results you're looking for. Perhaps the following articles will help point you in the right direction: 1). 2). 3). There are actually a plethora of other natural...

suboxone and klonopin
I've been on klonopin and suboxone for years. As long as you don't abuse them and take what the dr tells you to, you won't have a problem. It can and will be death if you abuse them. Hope this helps. ## @brian, You have a good point. Self control goes a very long way. As habit-forming as something like klonopin is, continuing to adhere to your doctor's regimen can be the biggest difference between becoming a fully fledged addict or remaining a normal patient. I know those are just labels, but it really is a delicate balance that one must maintain over the duration of treatment or course of several years, as you can vouch for. Glad to hear that you're still finding them both to be beneficial and not detrimental after all this time. Take care!

Ip 190 500 Hydrocodone
A FRIEND GAVE ME A PILL THAT HAS IP 190 ON ONE SIDE 500 ON THE OTHER SIDE.I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT WAS ## Hi Chloe, Based on the description provided, I found your pill marked IP 190 500 to be Naproxen (500 mg). Naproxen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used for the reduction of moderate to severe pain, fever, inflammation and stiffness. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## My Dr gave me some a while they expire? I am in pain again would it be okay to take one ## I hope she didn't take the pill not knowing what it was and being illegal to take someone elses med. Also, I would not post online that this happened or someone re...

doctors willing to prescribe schedule 2 central texas
Have been on oxycotin 40mg 3xdaily and percocet 15 as needed. Need a doctor who will spend time with me-long medical history. Any small town area around Austin or within 100 miles. Better yet, one that (internist-GP) who can assist in my adhd meds and knows anything about dextroamphetemine sulphate and how it can reduce pain anywhere from 50-100%. A life without opiods would be amazing. Plus, I have never addressed my ADHD-refused adderall. Have tried all the holistic hippie stuff and neuro/anti-depressants to no avail. Docs don't know what to do with me. ## Amphetamines don't help with the management of pain. There are some drs who will prescribe amphetamines to combat the sidew affects of some of the pain meds. But, those drs are few and far between, even if they are pain mana...

what is the difference in yellow 4mg dilaudids i have always got and white ones that are manufactured by malli they dont work
I have always got the yellow 4mg. dilaudids and they worked great. This month I got white ones 4mg. that are manufactured by Malli. They don't work at all. I need to take two to even get any relief and it is not much. ## @iceangel, Usually when you receive a tablet that looks different from what you're used to getting, it's often the result of differences in the list of inactive ingredients; even if the dosage remains the same. If you happen to know the imprint on both tablets I can post a list of binders/fillers used in each one for a closer look at what makes them different aside from the apparent yellow dye. From what I've been led to believe, certain types of fillers can't actually be metabolized by our bodies and because the active ingredient is mixed up within ...

white oblong pill ip 190
Is this similar to Vicodin or norcos? Does it give you the same feeling/affect? Does it have narcotics in it? Is it considerate a opiate? ## Does it have ip 190 on one side and 500 on the other, white oblong ? If it does it is 500 mg Naproxen. Naproxen is a nonsterodial anti-inflammatory. It is the same medication that is in Aleve over the counter, except the mg is higher in prescription Naproxen. It is not a narcotic or opiate. It does not contain the same medication as Vicodin or Norco.

does anyone have gastroparesis how do u manage pain
My gastroparesis causes right sided pain that can get very severe? Doctors don't want to give pain mess because it slows things down. Well I can treat the constipation I don't want to live in pain. What do other gp patients do ## @docchrid, Have the doctors been able to determine what caused the gastroparesis to begin with? I've read that one risk factor is from having diabetes, and wonder if at any point you were diagnosed with that as well? In either case, perhaps the idea of supplementing daily with digestive enzymes/probiotics and eating more fresh raw fruits/vegetables could improve your intestinal motility enough to metabolize food more efficiently (i.e. less work for your stomach muscles). - And in that respect, a strict regimen involving this may also help counter an...
