Hot Flash and Sweat Galore
I am heading into day 3 of this medication for a foot issue. I can concur with my side effects being constipated, heavy duty sweating, heart or pulse beats felt in my lower back and side, insomnia and my sinus running like a faucet. None of which I had Wed. the day before I started them. My foot hurt but these side effects are worse than the foot pain I think. I realize where i am it was 100 degrees out but it felt like I was sitting in a 300 degree sauna. The heavy "beat" i feel in my back and side is what got to me. I stopped taking them this afternoon.

Hello! Are these real G3722 Xanax real?
I was wondering if they were real because I don't know whether to get some GG249 Xanax since they are finely pressed or G3722 Xanax since they are finely pressed as well. What are your thoughts? Thank you!

why pioz mf g2 is banned in india
I am using Pioz MF G2 to control my Blood sugar since two years. Blood sugar level is well controlled. Recently when I tried to find this medicine from market, I am told this is banned due to some chances of stomach cancer. Can any Doctor advise me why it is banned and should I continue the same medicine or not. Regards, Sanjib M. ## Hi Sanjib, Based on my research, the ban on Pioglitazone (Pioz MF G2) in India was actually revoked back in August of 2013. Apparently the reason why it was banned in the first place had to do with the central government's opinion concerning the safety of Pioglitazone, thinking it may have had life-threatening side effects (I believe cancer was one of them). However, after several protests from doctors across the country, I guess they let up on their de...

hi! i am needing some advice on a couple of things. i was o an extreme amount of pain pills for about 8-9 yrs then back in 09 i went thru the withdrawal from them & got clean for 9 months, i then came across suboxone not by Rx & started taking them at 1-1/2 a day the 8mg strips. i got on this ot for recreation but i have a really bad back & other problems that causes me alot of pain & thats what got my pain pill addiction started! the drs put me on them & left me on them for a yr! anyway ibe been taking the subs now for 5 yrs, i have went without before for 8-12 days so i know what the withdrawls are like from this to that point & it really scares me for the fact they last so long! when i detoxed myself from the pills it was over in 2 weeks! anyway right now i am...

suboxone 8mg/2mg and roxy 30's
I am currently taking 8 to 10 roxy 30's a day. I have suboxones 8mg/2mg to help get clean+ off of these. I know the suboxones are the best pill made to help with the withdraws*but im wondering if for the 1st 3=5 days when im having trouble sleeping and feeling clamy if i should take like half of a roxy 30{which i have done in the past}which helps me to sleep and take away the clamy feeling or any other suggestions that u may have*thanx to anyone answering this for me ## Taking the Oxycodone pills with the Suboxone will do you no good, it contains a substance that neutralizes opiates to prevent their abuse during treatment, that is why it throws you into withdrawals. Suboxone should really not be used without a doctor's supervision, as the dosage and usage is carefully monitored ...

calci block/ tumeric
Is it safe to take tumeric caps with lercandipine 10mg? ## Hello, Edith! How are you? I'm sorry, but the Tumeric is a supplement, not an actual medication, so it has not been evaluated for possible interactions with actual prescription meds. Have you tried asking your prescriber? They may know more. Are you on any other medications? ## Thank you so much for the reply Verwon. Am on Leracandipine 10mg and Omeprazole 20mg. Have just started with the Tumeric caps - 1 daily cap of 400mg. Had a blood test and liver enzymes were slightly elavated so trying the Tumeric to see if it helps bring them back to normal. Also using the spice in some meals. Tests to be repeated in 8 weeks. Regards Edith ## Hi Edith, from what I'm seeing Turmeric should be taken with caution if you are on any dr...

Which is strong 15mg MS Contin or 15mg Oxycodone
I wonder what the difference is between 15MG MS Contin vs 15 Mg Oxycodone. Is there a substitute for MS Morphine..I take 2 30mg MS Contin twice a day and also with that I take 15MG MS Contin twice per day..which of course is 45mgs at a time..with 3 15mg Oxcodone for breakthru pain. I was taking 20 mg Oxycontin 3 times a day etc. But my insurance wasn't paying for the oxy. So what I take now is paid for. Do any of you have any suggestions of what would work better for the pain..since I changed to morphine it doesn't seem to do the trick..this is long..but any answers would be very appriciated..Thanks.. ## Oxycodone is actually one and a half times stronger than Morphine. So, for instance if you were taking 20mgs of Oxycodone, at a time, to relieve your pain, then the equivalent d...

red round pill no markings scored
I received this pill from out of the country. Its a fairly big round red pill. Scored on 1 side with two lines. Its suppose to b Tramadol 200 mg ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? What country is it from? When it comes to foreign pills with no markings, it's likely going to be difficult to determine a positive ID. However, if you can post back with more details, such as what country it's from, I may be able to find something. Thanks! ## i have a red round large pill with 2 scores and no imprint it's supposed to be a oxycodone 30 & its From overseas. is that what it is? ## this is tramadol 225mg slow release. ive seen it as round red/dark pink with either a strawberry, capital R,or 225 marking and scored on the other side. even though its slow release, be very careful of such...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

horrible switch from methadone to suboxone
i switched from 60mgs of meth to suboxone .they suggested i wait 30 days clean from methadone . i liead it had only been 26hrs i felt like eating a bullet. its been three days on suboxone does n e one know how long it will b till i get my energy back i still have chills please help ## After you switch to subs from methadone how long until you feel good again? And does suboxone help with pain relief at all? ## I'm not sure why they told you to go from 60mgs Meth to nothing. And just ride it out for a full month before starting suboxone. Whoever was giving you this treatment seems as if they do not know what they are doing. The truth is you are to wean down to 20 mg meth for three days in a row then start suboxone on the fourth day. I still felt really bad when i did this and have use...

stopping lisinopril
I have been taking 10 mg/day of Lisinopril for 3 months and have developed a tightening in the chest and flu like symptoms. Within the past 3 weeks I have felt progressively worse and would like to stop. Is it ok to just quit or must I wean myself off? ## Lisinopril is used to help control high blood pressure. That said, most of these medications can cause dangerous rebound effects if you have been on them for a period of time and abruptly stop taking them, this can include increased blood pressure and heart rate, with the risk of heart attack and stroke. The side effects that you are experiencing are normal for this class of medications, you may also experience headache and dizziness. If it is getting worse, however, and not tapering off, you should speak to your doctor immediately abo...

metoprolol withdrawal
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...
