Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

sertraline can you do this?
I currently take 100 mg of Sertraline. I ran out of pills and can't get any more until tomorrow after work. I take it each morning. I have some 25 mg Sertraline pills my Dr prescribed me a good while before increasing my mg. Is it safe and ok to take four of the 25 mg pills to equal the 100 mg I am used to taking?

prescription refill every 30 days
I have a prescription with instructions to refill every thirty days. I am having a disagreement with my pharmacy who will only do the refill on the 31st day. Problem is there computer starts counting thirty days on the day after the prescription is filled. My doctor said I should still have Meds when I get my refill on the thirtth day. I have no Meds on the thirty first day. Guess I will have to change pharmacies.

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss ?
I have been on Lyrica for about 8 months now and I am having fantastic results. My dr is trying to increase my dosage and I have been doing it in 50 mg increments. I am up 100 more now in a month, for a total dosage of 400mg. I find that I have very bad recall and loss of my vocabulary during conversation. It eventually goes away, but I was wondering if anyone else has this? If it keeps up, I just may have to drop back down 50mg until I get used to it? That seemed to work that last time I had to raise it.BTW, I have nerve pain in my ribcage.(not caused by Shingles) Karel ## It is a possible reaction to this med, it is listed as a severe side effect that you should see your doctor about if you experience it. You can see it in the monograph listing here: Lyrica Info Click Here Have you co...

find a dr in or near lancaster ohio that can prescribe liquid methadone for detox off suboxone
Hello, I am looking for a Dr in or near Lancaster Ohio that can prescribe LIQUID methadone to me to get me off Suboxone. Here is a little background. I took percocets for recreation use for just over a year. In November of this year I will have been on 24mg of Suboxone a day for 2 years. Yes I have been on the subs twice as long as my addiction lasted. Don't get me wrong subs saved my ass but I am ready to close this chapter in my life and move on. I have tried several times to taper off subs and have just accepted that I do not have the will power to do so. I am a stay at home mom w an ADHD 9 yr old and a very busy 3 year old, if I have the subs I take them. So, here's where the liquid methadone comes in. There is very little "help" here in Lancaster/Columbus Ohio unles...

Alprax-1 white round pill scored on one side and alprax -1 on the other
I want to know is this real Xanax it says on the blister packs made by torrent that it is Alprozolam 1mg which is generic for Xanax but is it real ? Is it from India which in know when it comes to overseas meds it's hit or miss so basically has anyone taken these and do they work ? ## Hi Gust man, Torrent pharmaceuticals is actually well known to be a legitimate manufacturer (even though their headquarters are based out of India), and they do list Alprax (Alprazolam) on their product page; which reportedly comes in 0.25mg, 0.50mg & 1mg dosage forms. So it would really be hard to tell if they were fake unless you got a bad counterfeit from an untrusted source. There are tons of fraudulent foreign medications coming from overseas, so I can certainly understand your concern... but ...

GLYX-13 open label update
GLYX-13 open label study is now scheduled to begin in June, according to my local study center. I will update as I get more info. ## What is an open label study? Is is another trial? AND CAN ANYONE SAY HOW ONE GETS TO PARTICIAPATE IN THE STUDY?? I just learned about GLYX-13 and have been trying to find out what's going on with it. I've been depressed all my life, have tried everything I can think of, and nothing helps. Not drugs, not exercise, not psychotherapy, not meditation…. I got to the point I just wasn't willing to try anything else anymore. But this sounds different, and hopeful. I would be so grateful if I could get help... ## @post #1, An open label trial is basically a type of clinical trial in which both the researchers as well as the participants know what...

Zolpidem Er 12.5mg?
Round, yellow, with a single embeded marking of A1 or AI approximately 7mm or 5/16ths of an inch accross. Label says NDC:00228-3482-11 Mfg: ACTAV FB:LK - CRC- DS:30. I am feeling well but I am only getting about firv (5) hours sleep. I have checked Google Images for Zolpidem, Zolpidem ER, Ambien and Ambien CR and none of the images correspond to what I am taking. ## Those are 12.5mg extended release Zolpidem tablets. Learn more Zolpidem details here. However, it could just be that it doesn't work well for you and you may need to try a different medication. Are there any others that you've tried yet? ## Consulted doctor and says try to go back to "blue pill." Also, no Trader Joe's 72% Dark Chocolate before trying to go to sleep.

Nexplanon and miscarriage
Can I safely have a D & C procedure while Nexplanon is in my arm? ## Hi SweetT, Even though Nexplanon (etonogestrel) is just a contraceptive implant, safety precautions are still something you'd really need to speak with your surgeon about directly, well before the date of your procedure. Most surgeons I'm aware of actually have their own individual set of special instructions/guidelines to follow prior to and post operation. This should include what you can or cannot take while s/he's performing their operation. However, with a Dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure it doesn't seem like the implant in your arm would necessarily get in the way (physically), since they would essentially be examining/removing tissue from inside your uterus. None-the-less I do want ...

I have been taking 120mgs methadone and 90mgs oxycodone per dium for20yrs....pain doctors come and go, but I'm here for the long haul. I got a call today informing me that my Dr. is closing up shop .We are to receive one months meds with NO referral for another Dr.that will per scribe these meds.

Pain Doctors Alabama
My dr in mont al has been prescribing me 3 80mg oxycontin for several years.My visit last wk he refilled my scrip and said it could be the last because he was told there was diversion possibly coming from his practice.Btw that was 3 a day. If he doesn't refill my scrip on my next visit. I need to find a DR quick. Is it legal not to wean a patient off? The pain clinics in this town are full. ## If he cannot continue to prescribe, he should be able to refer to another doctor or clinic that will accept his current patients. Has he suggested anyone? And yes, it is perfectly legal for a doctor to stop prescribing your medications, even if they are habit forming, at any time. They are not obligated to treat you or prescribe anything, unless you are in life threatening danger. As a courtes...

Fake Orlistat capsules
Hello Everyone Just wanted to let you all know that you need to be aware of fake Orlistat pills being offered for sale as generics to Alli. I bought what I thought were generic Alli 120mg but was sent blue capsules filled with a white powder instead. I know for a fact that the active ingrediant in Alli (Orlistat), is actually small white bead-type drug. So, what is this powder? Only God knows! I've written my letter of complaint to the on-line pharmacy concerned, but no reply. I will see about getting my money back. ## Sorry to hear about your experience when ordering this medication. However, it is important to note that not all manufacturers are going to use the same manufacturing process when making any given medication. Rather than the bead type, they may use a different release...
