New To Viibryd, Primarily for Anxiety, 1st time on this type of Med
Have been on Viibryd for almost a month. Dr. having me top out at 20mg for now, so cutting 40mg in half. Initial stomach bowel problems solved by taking in the morning with toast/banana or steel cut oatmeal. My problem is that my anxiety level has shot a ton higher recently. Normal risks/worries with work becoming obsession like. I went on this drug b/c of one particular event at work that I was obsessing over. Now I am waking up at 4am, not able to fall back asleep, with thoughts running through multiple work related problems. Has anyone's Dr. kept them at 10mg ? or switched them from 20mg to 10mg and stayed there longer term ? Trying to figure out if 10mg is right for me or if that's not realistic and Viibryd is just not the right drug for my anxiety. See my Doc this week. ## ...

oblong pill with cx on one side and the other blank
White oblong pill with the letters. Cx on one side and blank on other ## From what I can find, this is most likely one of the over the counter Comtrex cold/sinus products, but I am not quite sure which one. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet to provide more details on it?

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

oxycontin 60 mg
If I take 2 of the 30 mg oxycodone and I have the 60 mg oxycontin. Can you cut a 60 mg oxycontin in half and take it that way to get the immediate effect you get with taking 2 of the 30 mg oxycodone. I have to mail order my medications and there was a mix up and I have been taking for 15 years for chronic pain. Just trying to get by without going 2 hours to my dr to get a written script and then it would mess up my scripts again!! Thanks for the help. ## Hello, Susie! How are you? No, the new Oxycontin are actually tamper proof, so they prevent anyone from being able to do that. If you cut them up, you will just get a ball of goo that still releases the medication just as it should. However, there could also still be a risk of getting too much, at once, and suffering an overdose. This i...

Adderall on backorder
I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal...

i need to find a doc that will treat my pain until i can afford to have an MRI done
I have a pinched nerve in my neck?? It causes severe pain under my arm when I cough or sneeze or laugh too hard...the pain then travels down the back of my left arm then switches to a burning sensation on top of my arm ending with numbness in my last 3 fingers of my left hand ## A dr has to have medical proof of why you need pain meds. Anyone who doesn't have diagnotic test results and/or refuses to get tests the dr says are necessary will be viewed as a drug seeker. ## If it involves nerves, you need an EMG (Nerve Study) ## Hello, Jodi! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. There is also a chance that this isn't nerve related, it could be a cardiac problem. You need to have this checked out by your doctor immediately, to be safe. Have you had any evaluations done,...

WANTING TO SEE IF THE PHARMACY IS GIVING ME THE SAME MEDICATION I HAVE BEEEN TAKING
I HAVE ALWAYS GOT THE BLUE OXYCODONE 30 S ,BUT THIS TIME THEY ARE WHITE WITH A M ON ONE SIDE IN A BOX AN A 30 AT THE TOP OF THE OTHER SIDE WITH A LINE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS SIDE ,IS IT THE SAME KIND OF MEDICATION I BEEN TAKING.THANK YOU ## Hello, Daisy! How are you? Are they white, or pale blue? There are pale blue ones with this marking that contain 30mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation. 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.

octagonal white pill with m in a square on one side and 30 on other side
Please help me figure out what this is. Also, there are 4 score lines around the 30. I was told it is a brand new generic for Adderoll (sp?). I want to know with certainty. Thank you in advance for your help on this! ## Who told you it was a generic for Adderall? I've done some searching, but haven't been able to find a listing for anything matching this description, so far. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## The one whom it was prescribed to. They were surprised at the new shape, color, etc as well & said they asked the pharmacist about it when they picked it up. The pharmacist said they, too, hadn't seen the new medication form, but stated they researched it themselves & stated it was a new manufacturer of the generic for Adder...

yellow pill from thailand
1. What are small yellow pills from Thailand marked V on one side; 5 on the other. (not scored) 2. What are scored larger yellow pills from Thailand with D and 5 on the same side? ## I'm sorry, but foreign medications aren't regulated like those in the U.S. and Canada, so there is no central database that I can search for these. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize these tablets? ## No one recognizes but say it looks like diazepam

Need a doctor to increase my pain meds because PCP is afraid of DEA near Florenece or Columbia, SC
I have had over 20 procedures to reconstruct my urinary tract due to bladder mesh erosion. i self cath thru my belly button stoma and my entire spine has either herniated and bulging discs or fused discs and I am in EXCRUCIATING PAIN. My abdomen is the worst tho. I have a "bladder" made from resected bowel, colon and my appendix and I have "knives" and "hot pokers" in my belly 24/7. I need something stronger than a 10 mg oxycodone 4 times a day. My PCP won't do any more because of DEA. He referred me to pain management and they sent note to add a duragesic patch to my treatment plan. PCP refused. WHAT CAN I DO? I'm not a seeker, and don't do recreational drugs. Anyone know of a doc that would help???? ## Your PCP is severely restricted on what they ca...

Fentanyl jelly patch
what is the difference between liquid and jelly types ## I'am on 75 mcg of fentanyl patch jelly form. I found when i used the other fentanyl patches with the glue all over them i would break out from the glue. So what is the difference between the patches and do they work as well. I was told to use a steroid nasal spray under the patch before applying it, but everyone i've asked has never heard of using the spray before applying patch. So i've decided to just stay with the jelly form. Has anyone else had this problem and do the patches work the same jelly patches versus the ones with glue all over them. I'm still not getting much relief anyway, i've had chronic pain for some time and i'm only 52 but due to all my health problems i really don't have a life any...
