pain management doctor has got me hooked then dismissed me
Can a doctor do that, he got mad at me and refused to talk to me and left me without any pain meds that he has been prescribing for me. Can he do that? ## Hello, Jojo! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about what happened to you. Yes, your doctor can do that. No doctor is obligated to treat you, nor prescribe any medications, unless you're in life threatening danger. I know it sucks, but that is the way the law currently stands. The only thing I can suggest is that you try to find a new doctor. Do you have a PCP that you see regularly that might be able to refer you to someone? ## Did you have a Pain Contract ? If you did, did you break it ? If you signed a Pain Contract, many of them state that you're aware the meds you may be prescribed can be addicting. They also state th...

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.

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. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

betamethasone clotrimazole gentamicin cream
Need to know If I can order this online in Mexico and be shipped to US ## Hello, Jim! How are you? I'm sure there are ways you could, but it isn't legal to do so, since all of these ingredients require a prescription in the U.S. The Betamethasone is a steroid class medication that carries the risk of causing some dangerous side effects, such as fluid retention, elevated heart rate and elevated blood pressure, so the U.S. doesn't allow most of them to be used, without a physician's supervision. Are there any other questions or concerns?

need to find a doctor in the salisbury aea willing prescribe painkillers for chronic neck leg and back pain torn rotator cup peranail nerve
Need to find doctor in the Charlotte area willing to prescribe painkillers for chronic neck leg and back pain and torn rotator cup and peraneal nerve injury ## Hello, Pete! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. If you require controlled substances for the long-term ongoing treatment of pain, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. Due to the new regulations that were put in place, a general practice physician won't be able to prescribe them for you. There is also no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regular that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a...

I have two protruding discs in the lower back and I have arthritis there.I been taking Meloxicam 15mg.Only when I feel pain in my back.Now my fingers hurt and stiff. Can I take Meloxicam for the pain and stiffness?Sly ## Hello, Sly! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's commonly used to treat pain, fever and swelling, thus, you should be able to take it, as long as your doctor has prescribed it and approves. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

xanax 603
Football shaped with numbers 603 ## Hello, Ik! How are you? This tablet contains 0.25mgs of Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax. This is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Do I have to Taper ?
So I was on 3-4 oxycodone 30mg for about a year less then a month ago I was switched to fentanyl 100mg patches I don't like them can i quit cold turkey since I have only been on about month or less or do I have to taper off? ## Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine, so quitting cold turkey isn't advisable. You may end up experiencing severe withdrawals, that could put you in danger. A slow taper with medical assistance would be the best thing to do. 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. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Losartan 25mg green vs white pills
Hello, Got a new refill on my Losartan 25mg. which was a small green pill versus the normal oval white. I started the new ones yesterday and within a half hour of taking them I develope a headache. Stayed with me all day. Not a pounding debilitating one but just a constant nagging headache. Today I woke up fine but within a half hour of taking my pill I have a headache again. Same as yesterday. Not sure if this is being caused by something in the new pill "fillers" as they call them. Just know I never had this issue until I started the green losartan yesterday. Do I wait a few more days and risk that this is going to continue as a side effect? Not that it makes me unable to function but it is an irritation that I never had to deal with in the past on Losartan. Being the holiday ...

actavis microgestin vs watson microgestin
Over six yrs my b/c was Watson brand Microgestin now the new pills I picked up Actavis Microgestin is making me have side effects...breakthrough bleeding and cramps. If the company name changed, I'm assuming the medication as well! If my body is already immune to this medication why the side effects... ## I am having the same problem. Im experiencing side effects (headaches, mood swings) on the actavis microgestin fe 1/20. I am getting off of it. ## Hello, Kym and Sandy! How are both of you ladies doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, so the new one is most likely a little higher or lower, which could account for these new side effects. I used to experi...

after effects of scabies
hi, I had a scabies attack, which i treated with permethrin lotion and accompanying oral medicines prescribed to me. However, i still have some itching and little rashes on the penile shaft and tip. Also nodule like itchy structures on the genitalia. I am aplying mometasone furoate cream, but it is not helping.

I too have oriel 5mg (levocetrizine) to take orally as well. Probably I hav a re-attack of scabies, but it will be another 10 days till I get proper treatment. So suggest me something.

Muscle spasms in back and numbness infoot
I use to have occasional back muscle spasms about twic a year that would last about 3 or 4 days. I started taking quid for AFib in April. Now I am having severe muscle spasms in my back every 2 weeks and they last up to 8 days. I have also developed numbness in the bottom of my left foot. Can this be caused by the eliquis ## Hello, Dorothy! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, it could be due to the Eliquis, many people taking it have complained about similar issues. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Have you consulted your doctor, yet? Are you on any other medications?

Lunesta for Middle-of-the-night insomnia
I've suffered from MOTN for many years and have used Sonata. I also tried 3mg Lunesta and took it before bed. I know that Lunesta is for use when you have 7-8 available for sleep. I wonder, however, whether I could split a pill down to about 0.5mg and take it when I have 4 hours available for sleep. Thanks ## Hi Jimmy, From what I've researched, Lunesta is supposed to reach its peak concentration about 1 hour after it kicks in and is reported to have an estimated elimination half life of 6 hours. This means that it'll take 6 hours from the time that you took it until half of the dose is no longer working in your body. So my guess is that if you only had 4 hours available you'd still feel it for a couple hours afterwards before "coming down" so to speak. But takin...

VIIbryd as of now has been great!!!
I have suffered from anxiety/depression prob my whole life. I just dealt with it as i did not know much about mental health. I just thought it was life. of course that was not good because its easy to deal when in high school because few to no real responsibilities. Very scary to go to a crowed campus for college with anxiety/depression then you stop going and your parents and peers think its just you and it gets worse etc… I have tried many antidepressants and none have worked or gave me even a feeling of something different except some zombie effects. i just stuck to the typical narcotic medication xanax and adderall. xanax was to help the physical symptoms of my anxiety ex. stiff muscles, just stiff everything, and adderall for the can't think,fatigue etc.. but those medica...
