Victan natural supplement or drug
1 Reply RSS
I went to a " natural " doctor here in the US. He gave me some natural supplements such as Vitamin Bs and Bach Flowers for my anxiety. He also gave me Victan 2mg. He said Victan is not a drug and that it comes from Valerian Root. I just researched it and its a drug. Are his statements true or should he be reported for giving me a benzo without a psychiatric license? Im really upset because the point of seeing a natural practicioner is to get natural medicine.. ## Hello, Bobby! How are you? You are correct, Victan is considered a drug by the FDA and while someone doesn't have to be a psychiatrist to prescribe it, they are supposed to have a license to practice medicine. It is also warned that it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nau...

is n p 12 a percocet
2 Replies RSS
I also want to know if half a pill will work just as if I took a whole one? ## NP 12 is Oxycodone. It is very dangerous to cut or break it. ## This tablet is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 10mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation, so yes, it can be cut, if your doctor approves. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

prescribed diluadid 8mg tablet and want to switch 2 suboxone
3 Replies RSS
I am currently prescribed diluadid 8mg tablet but want to switch to suboxone for opoid dependence. When I am prescribed suboxone can I start taking them right away or will there be a reaction with the diluadid still in my system? Please help, keep getting different answers! ## I'm curious about this to I take suboxone & wanna konw if I can take diluadid... ## Can you give a little history? How long have you been taking the it? are you taking more than just 8 mg? ## Yes, you have to be in full withdrawal, before you can take Suboxone, or it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies it as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness,...

diazepam cdc markings fake orbreal
2 Replies RSS
Is light blue tablets with the markings cdc real diazepam ## Real in UK anyway definitely real... and this is for every valium novice, try taking 1 10mg diazepam that you know are real and let it melt completely on your tongue. Then you will get the taste of diazepam. All diazepam no matter where they come from have this same taste. It is not an unpleasant taste. You can quite happily chew them up like sweets. So if you have pills you're not sure about use just 1 off them and taste it. If it's vile tasting it has a dodgy drug in it. if it let's out very fast and is tasteless it's probably just plaster of Paris and blue dye. You will always remember the taste of real valium, cos it tastes quite nice unlike most. Hope this helps many of you from being ripped off. ## So to ...

metoprolol withdrawal
948 Replies RSS
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...

Suboxone Strips are smaller this month...WHY
4 Replies RSS
My Suboxone Strips are straight from the pharmacy so they have never been opened but they are "alot smaller" now and Iam mad but I dont know how to ask Suboxone manufactorers..my pharmacy would think Im crazy probly so hhmmm? ## It just depends on what fillers and excipients they use in them, there is no specific size that they must be, as long as they contain the full dose they are supposed to. The size itself really means nothing. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Why did you go all pharmacy tech on us at the end there. Not helpful at all! In fact you didn't really have anything useful to say. Have...

oxybutynin, 5mg tablet
2 Replies RSS
This sounds weird, but I think oxybutynin 5 mg tablets are passing through my body without being dissolved. I receive my prescriptions from Express Scripts, by mail. Has anybody else ever mentioned this happening? I am a prostate cancer survivor and the pills were prescribed for incontinence. I have noticed more leakage lately, and observed the small white pills in my stool on two occasions. ## I also take oxybutynin have noticed the pill is in my stool...I don't know if it doesn't get dissolved...but I can actually read the numbers on it in my stool ## Hello, Bob and Carol! How are you? What you're both seeing in your stool is just the outer shell of the pill, but the medication is released. It's one method of controlling the release of a medication, so it is dispersed ...

Wine after taking last Methylprednisolone dose
3 Replies RSS
I started taking Methylprednisolone tablets USP 4 mg today and will finish my last pill Easter Sunday in the morning before Breakfast. My question is may i have a glass of Wine with my Easter dinner? Selma ## The reason you are usually warned not to mix most medications with alcohol is due to the fact that it can enhance the side effects, like the associated drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. Thus, drinking one glass of wine could affect you like you have drunk 2 and so on. However, it you are taking the last one in the morning and not planning your wine until dinner, the problems should be minimal, but you may still experience some, so I would just suggest to be prepared for them, in case they strike and, as an extra precaution, make sure you aren't going to be driving anywhere. Are...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
887 Replies RSS
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...
