On Emsam patch(also metformin,lyrica )and absolutely beat whenever I move around feel good when resting? ## Hi Carr, It sounds like what your experiencing is probably just a side effect from one or more of your medications. Based on my research, The US National Library of Medicine shows that Metformin can cause "unusual tiredness or weakness" as a possible side effect. Ref: And although it's considered to be rare, Lyrica actually lists the same thing under the following page: I wonder if that has anything to do with how you're feeling when you are active vs stationary. However, it may also be a good idea to discuss this with you...

Let me know if this will really helps in conceving? ## I have been adviced to use fortisur f as I'm try to conceive five six month. We both are 28 year it good or does it have any sideiffect. ## I haven't found much information on Fertisure F tablets posted on the internet, but from what I could gather it is touted for its ability to help treat infertility in women. Apparently they also make a Fertisure M version for males as well. What's odd to me is that there's no definitive description on these tablets outside of what I already mentioned above. No list of ingredients or anything. Howeve...

Doctors near Canton Ohio Who Prescribe Oxycodone
My husband has a bad back (bull stepped on him in high school) he's 37 now, and needs surgery. We cannot do that right now, so he's been on oxycodone 30mg, but we've moved 16 hours away from old dr. Need new dr in Ohio preferably near Canton, but at least somewhere near. Can anyone please help us find a Dr. who prescribes that. We've been looking, & not having any luck. Any advise would be great!! ## The best piece of advice I can give you is to get him an appointment to see a new doctor, but don't ask ahead of time if they will prescribe any particular medication. When you do that, doctors view it as being drug seeking behavior and will usually just say that they don't prescribe, don't treat such things or whatever excuse they can come up with to not tak...

Erectafil long last tablets
I bought over the Internet, long last Erectafil tablets. Each pack contains 4 tables color pink. Each tablet contains 20 mg Tadalafil. and Dapoxetine 60 mg. Can you please confirm if these are the original tablets of Combitic Global Caplet? ## I found these tablets in nippon-pharmacy and they are in fact the original. They work perfectly. They increase the libido and help you to last longer. I took only half a tablet and it was more than enough. ## Hi Serafim, Often times when you get prescriptions off the internet or from overseas it can end up being something else, so I'm glad to hear that it's working perfectly for you! However I do want to point out that the manufacturer (Combitic Global Caplet) states that Erectafil only contains 20mgs of Tadalafil (and doesn't actually...

uses ## Sorry, I can't find anything under this name, are you certain of the spelling? ## use or dietary suplement Arkaliox ## My doctor told me it is some kind of vitamin, based on thiamine to kind of boost you up with energy. I've looked the net, even call my pharmacist for more questions and they have more or less the same info. It also is supposed to retore blood circulation. ## The spelling is correct. Arkaliox 200 mg tablet is a supplement derived from thiamine called sulbuthiamine. ## Yes arcalion and arkaliox are the same they are sulbutimine. CVS only has arkaliox I'm getting a script for that from my doctor shortly. Do your own research this is just what I think as I don't have the script yet.

I need to know the herb I read about in this forum to help with craving sweets and other side effects on Methadone!! PLEASE HELP!!
I was reading in this forum a week or so ago and come upon someone talking about an herb capsule that helps with methadone side effects, craving sweets, sweating and a couple of other side effects. Is there anyone that could please help me with this?? PLEASE PLEASE!! I thought I found the answers to all my prayers. Except now, I can not find the name of this herb for the life of me!

Taking medroxyprogesterone for over 15 years
Hi, I've had abnormal periods since I was a teenager. At age 18 my gynecologist put me on provera/medroxyprogesterone, I've taken it every first 10 days of every month since then, and I am now 35 years old and still on this medicine. My doctor keeps telling me that I need to stay on it, to prevent uterine cancer, it runs in my family and if I don't take this medicine I won't get a period. My concern is the effect this medicine will have on my body after all these years of taking it. I keep reading that this medicine may increase my risk of breast and ovarian cancer. What do I do????

Fentanyl Patches Killing people!
I would like to know WHY the FDA has not taken the Fentanyl Patch off the market? This drug is being handed out like candy. Anyone who is not terminal or under Hospice care or in a hospital invironment should not be using this drug. Why would a person be prescribed a medication that is 80 times stronger than morphine for a backache. I do not believe patients know how powerful this medication is.The warning should be labled in RED. When are you FDA going to realize This medication is killing while relieving pain! I know because it killed my son. ## Very sorry to hear that you lost your son, from use of this medication. As to the warnings, those used by the FDA are black box warnings, to alert people to serious risks. While it can be dangerous, since it is so powerful and often abuse, it ...

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

Spiriva weight gain side effects
I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

Switching from loestrin 24 fe to lomedia
I am one of the customers unhappy with the discontinuation of Loestrin 24 Fe. I saw so many negative reviews with those who switched to Minastrin that I refused to take it despite what my nurse was trying to say. I researched and knew a generic was coming. I have waited since October of last year for Lomedia and picked up my prescription and pills 3 weeks ago. I still haven't taken them because I'd like to know about the experience on these pills. Has anyone taken Lomedia? Please share your experience so we can all be informed. ## Hello, Kimmie! How are you? From what I can find, there is no difference better the Lomedia and LoEstrin FE, the active ingredients and the dosages are the same. The FDA has approved it as a generic equivalent, so you shouldn't have any problems wi...
