Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
4775 Replies RSS
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...

So I was wondering if anyone out there has taken this combo and what thier feelings are on the subject ## i have been on suboxen for awhile now...and works like a charm...its like any drug u will and can get addicted...but if u take it as prescibed and do just what the doctor says...u will eventually get off suboxen...then its up too the person that is the hardest part...dealing with life without drugs...my intake to your question is those 2 drugs suboxen and coloapin do NOT go together any downer such as xanec or valume can not be taken with suboxen...it effects the brain....i hope this was helpful to you....i will keep u in my prayers...take care ## I am also prescribed Suboxone (24mg/day) and Clonopin, and I have found it to work very...

Taking contrave a second time around
1 Reply RSS
I recently took contrave for a year and had wonderful success! I had all the horrible side effects in the beginning and wanted to quit. I talked to my Dr and he lowered my dose and the intolerable side effects went away! I originally lost 65lbs now after stopping it, I've gained back 30 lbs. After a while though I reached a plateau and it stopped working my appetite came back and I started to gain. I've been off contrave for two months and was wondering if I restarted taking it would it begin to work once more? I guess my question is how long do I have to be off of it for it to be out of my system so that I can start fresh again? ## Most people do report hitting a plateau point, after being on it for awhile, and it usually takes a few months for it to start working, again. I...

xanax bars causing illness
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed Xanax 2mg bars again for extreme anxiety! I have withdrawan from xanax twice in a matter of 2 years. I can't take them anymore! They are making me sick. Can anyone tell me why? My Dr is giving me 2 one mg daily now and that isn't working either. Should I take clonopin again? It seems to work better! My symptoms from xanax are sores on my body that don't heal and extreme fatigue and headaches. I took a clonopin the other day, 1 one mg. and I had more energy, no headaches and my anxiety was controlled longer. Does anybody know why xanax is now making me sick? ## Hello, Sue! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're having. Our bodies change with time, as we age, so it may be that Xanax is just no longer the right medication to help you. I've...

clobetasol propionate tube expiration date
2 Replies RSS
The tube I got from the pharamacy expires in 1 yr. Is 1 yr normal? It is for clobetasol propionate. Can I use it after the yr is up. The prescription tube is for the spray. Is the spray more potent then the ointment as it seems to work quicker but makes me very tired. ## I was given a prescription for Clobetasol. The prescription box says not to use it after 1 year. I live in N.J. Is it normal for Clobetasol to expire after one yr? The Clobetasol is advised to be used once in the am and once in the pm. I am getting terrible bruising in the area of my arm most affected by psoriasis. ## Yes, your pharmacy would not give you an inaccurate expiration date. After a certain period of time, all medications begin to degrade and start to lose efficacy, so once expired, it is best to dispose of t...

Cough suppressed from Fluoxetine?
1 Reply RSS
I know this might sound strange but did anyone experience that their cough was reduced after taking prozac? I have had a cough since march (dr. said acid reflux and quitting smoking) but since on the prozac it has not been as frequent. Is this a possible side effect? ## No, that is not typical, the FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. It is probably more likely just things slowly improving, overall, that typically occurs as time passes, the quit smoking cough usually improves very gradually. Are you on any other medications?

Can different brands of carisoprodol work differently?
46 Replies RSS
I have been using soma/carisoprodol for many years. Usually the paharmacy gives me generic from Watson or Qaulitest. Last time I got the meds it was manufac. by Carimax. It didn't work as well. Do different brands work differently? ## Yes, there can be some differences in generic drugs, the FDA allows a window, of the active ingredient, of up to plus or minus 20% from the name brand product. This can cause variations, where you may, in some rare cases, receive less of a dosage than normal and it may not be as effective. ttp://www.medschat.com/wiki/Carisoprodol/ Do you have any other questions? ## Is there any way to tell by the brand names? That way I could avoid the lesser dosage. ## No, there really isn't, other than by your experience. I wish there was, it would make it easie...

Alvogen Inc Oxycodon-Acetaminophen 7.5 NO PAIN RELIEF
1 Reply RSS
I picked up my usual prescription for Percoset and it was obvious when I opened the bottle that it was not the same manufacturer, as my medication has always been oblong white capsules by Mallinckrodt (which I just found out from my pharmacy - CVS - who aren't willing to do anything without speaking with my doctor). Anyway, I have been telling my boyfriend all weekend that these were not working and I have had to take more than prescribed. I have been in constant pain for over 3 years and I know my body well enough and my schedule well enough to know that these do not alleviate my pain unless doubled. I am FURIOUS because I never would have questioned the manufacturer thinking, as a layman in pharmaceuticals, that the ingredients would be the same but their NOT. My weekend has been ...

Taking 1 10mg norco every 4 to 6 hours per intructions
1 Reply RSS
My dr prescribed 120 10 mg norcos for my back pain. Instruction say take 1 every 4 to 6 hours. Most of the time I take one every 6 hours. Sometimes I have to take 1 every 4 hours for a couple or few days. This causes me to be short before my next refill. I also take tramedol so that holds me over till I wait a few days for my norco. Today my dr got mad and discharged me from her care. Im confused. She said I was not taking them correctly. I will be out now of both meds before I can get into a new dr. ## Hello, Laurie! How are you? Did you run out a few months in a row? If so, that could be why, repeatedly running short is something that doctors often consider a sign of someone abusing such medications. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may ca...
