Need a doctor to help me with my add
2 Replies RSS
Hello. I just recently graduated from college and entered the work force. I've suffered from ADD for as long as I can remember (or at least I think I do as I have never been diagnosed). It is tremendously difficult for me to stay on one task at a time let alone complete a task. This is due to the fact that my mind routinely cycles through a million different things a minute. I am VERY forgetful as I am easily distracted. I have a hard time getting through conversations smoothly not only because I forget what people say to me in the previous sentence but because I seem to but in and cut people off. The longer someone speaks the worse it is. I also have a hard time staying organized and punctual. I don't know if this is related but I am also tired most of the day. I work in custom...

Ritalin sr 20 mg tablets
3 Replies RSS
I was told by my pharmacist today that brand name (Novartis)-ritalin 20 mg tablets sr (sustained-release), have been discontinued. I cannot find anything on the internet to confirm this. He filled one-third of the prescription and said to contact the doctor to decide what to do. He said ritalin capsules, 20 mg la (long-acting) is still available from novartis. Has anyone out there had any similar difficulties? This may cause problems with my insurance plan...or delays. And I don't have transportation to go from pharmacy to pharmacy looking for ritalin tabs 20 mg sr. Would appreciate any feedback. Thank you in advance. ## Sunday night, and my Rite Aid pharmacist called to tell me the same thing. He said any pharmacy (Rite Aid, Walmart and more) that orders their pills from McKesson w...

how to get pregnant while on bc
1 Reply RSS
I'm on day 5of my period amd I'm on enskycewhat would happen if I missed my pills doig ovulation could I get pregnant ## Hello, Heather! How are you? If you missed pills during your period week, it won't make a difference. They are inactive and you don't ovulate that week. Each missed active pill can increase your risk of pregnancy, but you'd really have to miss them around the time of the month that you ovulate, for the risk to be any higher. By suppressing your natural hormones with oral contraceptives, it prevents ovulation from occurring. Typical side effects to oral contraceptives, as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, breakthrough bleeding and PMS like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

what is the difference between metoprol and metoprolol other than the shape of pill?
1 Reply RSS
I was taking metoprolol 25 and last time it was a new script it is metoprol 25. Pills are different shapes. However after two weeks I have began having a lot of swelling. ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, I really can't tell you anything about them from what you've included in your post. In theory they should be the same, but I can't really say without knowing more information. What are the markings on them? That is what would enable me to double check them for you. Metoprolol is a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, increased urination and low blood pr...

norco pain pill 7 5
1 Reply RSS
When I picked up my monthly pain medication which is suppsed to be Norco 7.5 325 is white not orange and it says U02 on one side and has a split line on the other side? Is this correct?? Have they changed again and I just was not aware. It is the weekend so the doc and his pharmacy connected to it is closed. ## Hello, White! How are you? Yes, these are listed in the pharmaceutical databases as containing 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. These ones are manufactured by Aurolife Pharma. It is common for a pharmacy to switch, depending on which company was offering the cheapest price, at the time they neede...

percocet vs norco
45 Replies RSS
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...

ranbaxy lorazepam
4 Replies RSS
I was taking Ranbaxy for almost 3 years and was just fine. No anxiety and no side effects. Then about a month and a half ago I started getting anxiety. Found out CVS changed to Mylan brand. I found I could get one more month's supply of Ranbaxy but at the two mg strength. Was a problem with dosage amount because I had to quarter the tablets. They cut in half nicely but the quartering was always unequal. I read this board and knew to stay away from Mylan, Watson and Santos (sp?) So I called around to the mom and pop pharmacies and found one that carried Excellium. I had read very little about Excellium on the forum but the pharmacist said he had been selling it for 10 years and never had a complaint. Scared to death, I transferred my two remaining refills to this place. I've been...
