Verapamil Er - Capsule vs. Tablet
11 Replies RSS
Pharmacy has changed my RX from a capsule to tablet (with approval from Dr.) Dosage is the same 240 and both are XR. Pharmacy says they can't get capsules any more, only tablets. Since the change-over (about 2 -3 months ago) my blood pressure has been inching back up and now soldily back in the "high blood pressure" readings. Doctor has temporarily increased my dosage of lisinopril (I take both) but wants my primary care to do a complete work up. Has anyone else had problems with tablet form not working? (Capsule worked for at least 2 years or more the change is only since switch to tablet.) My symptoms with uncontrolled high blood pressure include severe headaches and double vision. It is my top number (systolic?) that is increasing from 80s range to avg 150 and up. (I am f...

208 Replies RSS
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

difference between 30mg oxycodone and oxycontin
75 Replies RSS
I keep searching and STILL don¨t have a straight answer. I am currently on 30mg, 3 times a day of OXYCODONE (legally prescribed) for horrific back pain..... ¿WHAT is the difference between the 2, if any, besides the NAME? oxycodone AND oxycontin........ PLEASE help me out! thanks! thanks!! ## Its the same drug - Oxycodone. One is time released (Oxycontin) and one is immediate release (oxycodone). If they changed your meds from Oxycodone 30mg 3xper day (total of 90mg a day) to Ocycontin it would be probably be 40mg 2x a day with breakthrough meds. ## Pita's comment is basically true. Though OxyContin is technically oxycodone hydrochloride - a slightly different formula, but yes -- essentially the same drug. The major difference is the time-released delivery of OxyContin as ...

Klonopin brand name
210 Replies RSS
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

morphine vs dilaudid
1 Reply RSS
I have had occassional reactions to Morphine shots in ER (severe nausea/vomiting, hallucinations.) And began to think I was allergic or sensitive to it. When hospitalized for severe back pain and inability to sit up or walk, I was put on a pain pump of dilaudid and sent home on the pump. I had never heard of dilaudid before but lost my appetite and anything I ate, threw it up. In 6 weeks I lost 23 lbs, just lying in bed. I became weaker and weaker and began to think I was going to die. I had told the home nurse on several visits what was happening and she just said it was a side effect. Finally a male nurse did my home visit and when I told him, he said he needed to call the Dr., who recommended going to ER and having my electrolytes checked. While there I learned it was a drivitive of,...

Adderall Xr 20mg. blue capsule
62 Replies RSS
Pharmacy recently switched me to new generic brand (blue capsule) of adderall XR. I have never seen this brand and I don't feel like it is effective. I lack concentration and focus, recurring symptoms of ADHD. Anyone else experience this? ## There can be some slight fluctuations in the amount of active ingredient in generic medications. The FDA considers these fluctuations to be acceptable therapeutic windows, but some people are more sensitive than others and experience problems with any slight change in their medication. Learn more Adderall details here. If you have insurance, you could try asking your doctor to prescribe it as 'brand medically necessary' so your insurance will cover it and you won't experience such fluctuations in the future, or your can try asking yo...
