Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

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...

tablet to stop heavy and nonstop bleeding
I had periods after a gap of 2 months. I started with little bleeding. Flow got heavier and with clots as days proceeded. I am using ETOSYS on advice by doctor since 10 days. Now even after 15 days, bleeding has not stopped in spite of using tablet. Can someone please suggest me some tablets for immediate solution as well as treatment? ## Hello, Madhu! How are things going? Has the bleeding stopped, yet? It sounds like you might have a hormonal imbalance. Heavy bleeding with clots usually signifies very high estrogen and low progesterone, which means you may not be ovulating. Have you consulted your doctor again, yet? You may need to take some type of hormone to help rectify the situation, but only they will be able to let you know for sure. ## Hello i am samvi and 22yrs old i got my pe...

generic percocet 10 a333 white oblong not regulated
pleased be advised,that this a333 form is not regulated my pain doctor tells me they are only about 85 to 87 percent narcotic per the food and drug administration can not regulate as if it was an name brand made in the us so if you find it strange why it worked thed first 4 hours and not the next well there is your answer. ## Hello, Meister! How are you? I think there are some basic misunderstandings going on here. It isn't that the FDA can't regulate them, because they aren't made in the U.S. that has nothing to do with it. All generics must meet the same quality control guidelines, regardless of where they are manufactured. However, the FDA permits generics to have an allowable fluctuation in the amount of the active ingredient, that difference is plus or minus 20% and it ...

too close for me
I was given a script for zomax in 1983, for bursitis. It worked wonders with no side effects. A few months later my bursitis flared up. I still had my zomax, so I took one. Within a minute I new I was in trouble. I was alone with my 2 small children and my sisters 2 children. I called my parents and could barely speak. They got me to the hospital in less than 10 minutes from the time I called them. I was in anaphylactic shock, they had to give me a shot in my chest. I don't remember what else they did to me. I spent 3 days in the hospital. Just because you take something and have no problem, doesn't mean you won't develope an allergy to it later on. I didn't find out they took it off the market until sometime in the 90's. That's the closest to death I've ever be

i am having severe pain my back hips and thighs have scoliosis bone disk degenerative disease herniated disks just a mess
I've had trouble with my since I was very young. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was in 4th grade. Now my curve has worsened, 52 degrees curved. Plus my disks are crumbling. They don't want to do surgery due to my age and the complications associated with the surgery. They have told me there's nothing they can do for me. I am taking Cymbalta, Celebrex, Lyrica, Tizadine, Tramadol 200 my time release pill. I am having really pain more so than ever due to the curve. I'm trying to force myself to stand up with out looking pathetic. I can't cope with this any longer. I don't want to fight to get on a pain pill which would help me. maybe my blood pressure would not be high. My med Dr will not prescribe narcotics. I respect her decision. She's told me there...

forum for pain dr
Found a great pain Dr.in Dallas,Texas.. His name is Dr. Salvatore Campos. He is on Buckner and Garland Red. Very good Dr. for pain. Thank you. Jerry ## What did he prescribe to you? Was he kind and take time with you, or just rush you right out? I need a Dr to work with me that will give me what I need based on condition and pain level. ## Yes he gave me my oxycontin and Duragesic Patches. He spends a lot of time with you. Take your records with you or have them sent. Also I took my meds that I am taking..since he did not have my records yet.He is very kind and caring. I was very impressed with his bedside manner. Good Drs.are hard to find now.

Vyvanse - wife has taken 70 mg for about 5 yrs
Is this normal to take this med for 5 yrs? I really never even knew she had adhd? In fact I really dont know why she is taking it or even started. Her phyc. precribed it to her , he also prescribed viibryd which is a ssri. She also takes precocet 10/325 for back pain, i am not sure how many she take, but she has pills located in 3 locations of the house, so she does not always take 4 a day. Then she has a lipoderm patch, and has acess to a fentonal patch also, not sure how much she uses this. Then she takes klonipin to sleep. She does not doc shop, but the vyvanse and the percocet come from2 different docs. I am most comcerned about the vyvanse abuse . It has been a long time . We are divorcing and she wants me to keep paying for it. I believe she is addicted, and i aslo know she cant g...

Severe stomach pain and diarrhea with Lamictal
I have been on 25mg Lamictal for three days. I have had terrible stomach pain and severe diarrhea for three days. Has anyone else experienced this? Do the side-effects go away? (Not sure Lamictal is causing this because I've just returned from a trip ... I guess I could have gotten a bug.)
