Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

My mum had renal cancer 22 years ago, we had the kidney whipped out and nothing reaped its ugly head until now!! 4 tumors in her right lung!! We started pozapanib 6 days ago and no side affects as yet! Is this normal? Does it take time? ## Hello, Deanna! How is your mother doing? It may take some time, or she may not experience many side effects from it. Not everyone does, there are always some exceptions. Typical side effects for this drug may include nausea, vomiting, changes in hair color, hypertension and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon! Thank you for replying. We are now into our 6th week and the side affects are appearing! Blood pressure! Lack of energy and a horrible metallic taste in her mouth., and also her arthritis is going worse! We have a hosp...

pur bloka 10 mg extreme tiredness
taking Pur-Bloka 10mg 3 imes a day. as part of my anti-depression medication. i am expenriencing extreme tiredness. does this get any better or should i ask for another type of medication. ## Hello, Monica! How are you? Since this contains the active ingredient Propranolol, which lowers heart rate and blood pressure, it might be causing yours to drop too low. Have you checked your blood pressure or heart rate, while you're feeling that way? This just might not be the right medication for you and you may need to switch to something else. ## Thank you Verwon. I have now reduced it to 1 tablet twice daily and feel much better. I will however monitor my blood pressure from now on. Thanks for the advise.

regestrone 5mg trying to conceive
My wife has been advised to take regestrone 5 mg for 5 days from 18/2, her period is due on 23/02. we are married since 3 years trying to have a baby. please advise how the use of this medicine helps? ## Regestrone is sometimes used to help with ovulation, so she produces an egg to aid in getting pregnant. I am assuming that is why she was only on it for 5 days, rather than staying on it continuously. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## my gynec has advised to take the medcine (Regrestrone) for 21 days to stop the bleeding and after 2 days i will getmy regular periods is there any side effects ? is this is steriod type? ## No, this is not a steroid, Pumba, this is a hormone tablet. The active ingredient is Norethindrone. Side effects can include: nausea, breakthrough bleeding...

Xarelto and Vtamins?l
Was prescribed Xarelto 15 mg 2x daily two weeks ago for blood clot in the leg. I would like to keep taking the viamins/ supplements that I always took before this - I.e., B complex, Vit. C 1000 mg, Calcium/Magnesium, Vit D 2000 IU, Co-enzyme Q 10 200 mg, Biosil and Lutein. My doc said "no", but didn't tell me why not. Can't find any info anywhere to determine abiut this. Xarelto manufacturer has no info on package insert. Pharmacist doesn't seem to know either. I have read on another website that apparently the maket did not test for interactions w. vitamins, so they don't know. Does anyone here have any futher info regarding this? I feel that I really need to be taking my vitamins!

Methadone stopped my periods
Can any of the women out there tell me if taking methadone stopped thier periods? I have been on methadone for 4 years now and as soon as I went over 35mg it completely stopped and It has not come back since. I am on 60mg now. I did get lowered to 30 mg at one time years ago and it started right up again. Does anyone know if this might be dangerous? I have asked my doctor at the meth clinic and she stated its nothing to be concerned about because I wanted to know if I should be taking something to make it start and she said no, but for some reason it seems that it just does not sound good for a natural process to stop like that and not have it do any harm. Any feedback would be appreciated. ## Hi Silvia, I was on 100mg of methadone a day for several years as part of my pain management t...

Is there anything I can use to help with withdrawal symptoms I'm addicted to stilpane I use 30 to 40 a day I stopped once but the withdrawal symptoms was terrible then I started again I need help urgently ## Hello, Zee! How are you? Please seek medical attention. These contain Acetaminophen and taking that much of it in a day creates the risk of toxicity, which has the potential to be fatal. You may already have done permanent damage to your liver. Have you had any stomach pain? Any yellowing of the skin? You're going to need to do a slow taper to be able to stop taking them. ## Hi verwon I'm greatful to your reply the doctors don't tell you these things they actually the ones giving you the meds for pain relief because I had my womb removed a couple of years ago it was ...

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...
