blue Fluoxetine causes heartburn
Recently my pharmacy began giving me a new version of fluoxetine, which I have taken for MANY years with no problems.... however the blue fluoxetine gives me horrible heart burn. I use to take them at night before bed, but couldn't sleep, so decided to start taking them in the morning and still get the heartburn. I don't take them with any other meds. I tried an empty stomach, and after eating, but the results are still the same. I also get a bad headache (I think from the heartburn.) Has anyone figured out how to avoid this problem? ## Hi Jen, I truly believe that the root cause of this specific heartburn side effect lies within the "inactive" ingredients found in the blue Fluoxetine pill. Reason I say that is because, when you switch brand names or manufacturers, the d...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

FENTANYL 50 MCG/HOUR TRANSDERMAL PATCH
I WAS PRESCRIBED THE 50 MCG/HR FENTANYL PATCH FOR CHRONIC BACK PAIN & DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE. I WAS GIVEN THE PRESCRIPTION SEVERAL WEEKS AGO. I JUST GOT IT FILLED 2 DAYS AGO BECAUSE I'M AFRIAD TO USE IT. I HAVE READ ALL THE PATIENT INFO, RESEARCHED IT ON THE NET & TALKED TO SEVERAL PHARMACISTS AS WELL AS MY PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN. ALL OF THE PHYSICIANS & PHARMACISTS TELL ME THAT THE PATCH WILL HELP ME WITH THE DAILY PAIN. THEY SAY THAT THE PATCH SHOULD NOT CAUSE ME ANY HARM BUT THE ONE TING THAT'S STOPPING ME FROM USING IT IS THE RESPIRATORY SIDE EFFECTS & POSSIBLE OVERDOSE. I'M SEEKING SOME ADVISE FROM PEOPLE THAT HAVE USED THIS DRUG BEFORE WHETHER IT WAS A GOOD OR BAD OUTCOME. I AM OPOID TOLERANT BECAUSE I'VE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS PAIN FOR THE LAST ...

Zydus (Zygenerics) version of Wellbutrin 300 mg XL -
I had a huge problem with a generic before (TEVA) and have been paying a larger co-pay for brand.....I was wondering if anyone had any info on the Zydus version. Thank You ## I have been taking Zydus bupropion xl for about two weeks. I don't think it is as effective, and I feel 'zaps'--not sure how to explain that, sortof like twitches. I have felt horrible. ## According to the US National Library of Medicine, Zydus's generic Bupropion is actually manufactured by Cadila Healthcare Ltd., based out of Ahmedabad, India. Zydus simply acts as their distributor with a local headquarters in Pennington, NJ. Each tablet reportedly contains the following set of inactive ingredients: hypromelloses, magnesium stearate, methacrylic acid, polyethylene glycols , triethyl citrate, povid...

Imipramine Pamoste
I have taken Tofranil PM for over twenty years, with great success. Now that I am retired, I can't afford it and Imipramine Pamote works well, but I can not afford it either. Since it is a generic why is it so high. My insurance will not pay for it either. So I have been ordering it from Canada. They never give me the same meds, it is always a different pill (imipramine HCL). I am afraid I am getting depressed again. Where can I get imipramine pamote at a better price? Is there any help for a old person (71) if Medcare and Humana won't cover this?

suboxone and opiates
I took 4mg of sub's at midnight and another 4 at 8am. This is the first time I've taken it in several months. How long till opiates will work again? ## I have done it before within the same day....6 to 7 hours apart actually and I felt fine!! I did feel the relief from the Hydro also ## I took 4mg of suboxone today @6am & 4mg @12pm. How long till I can take my usual 30mg roxis? I usually take 10-14 30mg roxi/day (2-3 at a time) for severe chronic migraines but ran out for 2 days, hence the subs on 2nd day. But I will get my roxis @4pm. When is it safe to take because I have a raging migraine. ## I wondering the same as"need help". Last sub was 3pm yesterday but I need to take the 30OC ASAP. Sitting on them sucks! From all my research it seems like we can take them as...

Morphine 30mg ER
Can I overdose on 1 30mg ER morphine tablet? i weigh 173 lbs if that atters. i have nver taken anything stronger then a hydro 10 and kinda scared to take this medicine. ## I'm not personally aware of the difference in potency from Hydrocodone to Morphine, but I wouldn't suggest taking anything that puts a scare in you like that. If it's too strong it's too strong and your best bet would be to start off with a smaller dose (cut in half perhaps to assess your tolerance). To answer your question though, I don't believe you can overdose on 1 tablet, but you may or may not experience some very undesirable side effects if your body is not used to it. Unfortunately the only way to find out is to try it. I would just suggest a smaller dose to start off. I hope this advice he...

Tramadol HCL Safety And Potency Past Expiration Date
I pulled a muscle in my lower back and am in a lot of pain but am unemployed at the moment and can't afford to see a doctor and fill a new prescription. I found an old bottle of Tramadol HCL 50 MG with an expiration date of 3/22/2007. It has been stored in a cool, dark, dry cabinet all of this time. Does Tramadol HCL become unsafe or lose its potency after its expiration date, especially this long after? ## Unsafe no, loss of potency yes! In the original factory sealed bottles that your pharmacy receives, most medications are only good for 3 years, once those are opened and they are placed in a bottle that exposed them to heat and light, they degrade faster and will lose potency. Learn more Tramadol details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Thanks for the reply Ver...

alprazolam 2mg g3722
The taste is all tht matters if it tastes bitter after sitting on your tounge I mean realllllllu nasty bitter it's real also the real ones the g is more octagonal and the fakes are more like this G ## You shouldn't have to worry about a fake pill when you're obtaining your medication legitimately through a real pharmacy. A white rectangular pill marked with "G 372 2" (the G being octagonal as Jake mentioned), is in fact a real 2mg Alprazolam tablet manufactured by Greenstone, with a National Drug Code of 59762-3722. You can also verify its legitimacy by comparing the size of the real pill (which is reported to be approx. 15.00 mm). I hope this helps anyone else who may be looking for additional information on what they have.

Former DORN patient looking for a SUBOXONE Dr within 75 miles of Bloomington who accepts HIP Anthem BCBS
Mother of 3, I work, i pay for my insurance even though it is HIP, at least I work! Need to find a legitimate doctor who accepts bcbs through Healthy Indiana Plan as close to Bloomington as possible. And hopefully one who won't make me do N/A meetings, again, mother of three!, but I do attend counseling once a month. Can't afford to wait more than a few days and can't go more than twice a month, to the doctor, because I can't afford to make all these trips! I know nothing N Btown will, so, any suggestions would be much appreciated! God Bless Us ALL! ## You can use the search engine at Suboxone.com to check for doctors in your area.

I am writing you at all hours of the night due to my insomnia (my last dose was July 19th at 7pm). When I stopped, I was on 1mg a day (after 6yrs of use and 1.5 yrs of tapering down). It hasn't been easy, but it will get better, and it WILL get better for you too! Life sucks for a couple of weeks, no doubt, but just think of the freedom from dependence when it'...

keragro hair side effects
I just want to know IS there any side effects to Keragro ## Do not order kera gro! They'll initially charge you $4.95 in hopes that you won't cancel your order within the 14 day trial period then bill you $84! Go with hairfinity. Cheaper and they have proven results. Keragro doesn't even have a reputable website. ## Yes, I am having the same problem and I am trying to find the way to cancel it, they charged me after 2 weeks of my trial with their product for $86.47 and I didn't see any thing in my mailbox WTF? The phone number of their company is not available. I am trying to work with my bank now, to make sure that they won't charge me more! Ughh! ## @Allie, Not to ignore your initial question regarding side effects, but judging from all the reviews that have recent...

what is ilvitrim prescribed for
Hi,my 5weeks old baby has what is called colic so the Dr said,he cries nd folds himself and make his stomach hard and pulls his legs,however the Dr gave him Ivitrim Suspension 50ml to drink,nw I want to know if its safe for my hiv negetive baby,what could be the side effects ## Hello, Penny! How are you and your son? Ilvitrim is an antibiotic, it can be used to treat various types of infections, it can be taken by anyone that needs to take it, it's not just restricted to those who have HIV. When someone is HIV positive, it's often used to prevent them from getting infections that could make them very ill. Learn more Ilvitrim details here. That said, however, it's not going to do anything to treat colic, since that's usually caused by excess intestinal gas and not an infe...
