can ciprofloxacin be used to treat tooth infections
10 Replies RSS
I was prescribed ciprofloxacin for five days by my dentist and on the forth day I suddenly developed severe lower back pain, and generalized aches and pain which have lasted for past month and only gradually beginning to subside. I only suspected the ciproxin when a friend was taking it for chest infection and developed pain in Achilles tendon and is finding it difficult to walk. ## I was prescribed ciprofloxin hcl 500 mg tabs for a tooth infection. So far I have taken 3 tabs. At this time I have had no side effects. ## Hi, Nancy! How are feeling? It is a known side effect that some antibiotics can cause tendonitis in some people that take them and achilles tendonitis is the most frequent one known to occur. As to the symptoms you experienced, those aren't normal, especially lasting...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
415 Replies RSS
I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I bought some oxycontin 40 mg. to see if they could replace my 4 mg. Dilaudid. However, I did 1/2 of a 40 mg. and I felt nothing. An hour later I did my 4 mg. Dilaudid and really felt it. But they are very short lived, that's why for cronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered off of Dilaudid?...

Tramadol withdrawal terrible stomach pain
24 Replies RSS
Hello. I have searched the web and can't seem to find a problem like mine while coming off tramadol. I have horrible stomach burning and pain that extends down both sides of my rib cage. It happened once before when I was coming off tramadol and you think I would have learned to stay away from this poison. Has anyone else had pain and terrible burning down both sides of their rib cage when coming off tramadol? This is day 2 for me. I am hoping it goes away soon ## I think it's safe to say that Tramadol withdrawal symptoms can be quite similar to the side effects of those who are still taking the drug. According to the mayo clinic, severe abdominal or stomach pain is reported to be a normal, but serious side effect of Tramadol (that should be reported to your doctor). I don't...

Norco's number not being filled?
4 Replies RSS
I live in Northern California and I have been taking Norco's for 15 yrs due to 2 MAJOR car accidents I have been in( passenger both times) I should have died but I'm still here but in pain EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE.. I get a RX for 240 per month and now the Pharmacy is saying they can only fill like 180 per month, that's not what the doctor wrote it for so how can the Pharmacist change MY DOCTOR'S ORDERS??? ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? There were new regulations put in place last year that restrict how many can be prescribed per month, except in cases where someone has intractable pain due to a possibly terminal illness, such as stage 4 cancer. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dro...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
111 Replies RSS
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them eac...

Trapezius Muscle Tension Headache Migraine
Post a Reply
Does anyone know of an effective pain killer for Trapezius Muscle Tension Migraine Headache? I used Fiorinal with Codeine by Watson, Brand Name Only, since 1998. But something is not the same about that drug anymore. It simply does not knock out the pain. I am not addicted to it. I am able to go days without it, when there is no pain and I can function. It's too bad that the drug has been changed in some way, because my life is now spent on the couch most days of the month because of the unrelenting excruciating musculoskeletal migraines. I am trying to find another pain killer, since Fiorinal with Codeine has been changed and no longer works. I wish the manufacturer(s) would listen to us who use their product and believe us when we tell them the change they've made in the drug has

memory plus gold adverse effect
4 Replies RSS
I read all the good reviews regarding memoplus gold that it does not have any side effects i even bought 1box w/o any hesitation but when my husband start to consume it, rashes starts to develop and it worsen as he continues to use memoplus gold.. The rashes disappear two days after he stop consuming memo plus gold... So i guess the claim that it does not have any side effects wasn't true after all... #caveatemptor ## it could be that your husband is hysensitive to memoplus gold or the exipients (the other ingredients used in the formulation aside from the active ingredient). this is not a rare scenario in medication therapy. some people are hypersensitive to certain drugs,and some needs to change to another brand or same class drug to avoid allergic reactions. I, for example, was t...

I'm a 38 yr old black female and I recently decided to start a family. I was taking losartan 100mg daily, clonidine HCL 0.2mg twice daily, and hctz 25mg daily to control my blood pressure. My doctor has taken me off of the losartan and I'm concerned about my blood pressure spiking since I've stopped.

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
365 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At peoplespharmacy.com there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...
