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 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.

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

I've been on lo loestrine fe for at least 5 months and it feels like always have my period
The first month I had seemed to skip my period, but from there it just got worse. My period lasts for nearly two weeks at a time. Now, only nine days after my last period ended, it started again and it's already been 8 days. I'm trying to get an appointment with my doctor, but does anyone know if skipping the placebo pills until then will provide me with any relief? I just want to stop feeling awful. ## Hello, Marina! How are you? Skipping them isn't likely to help, if you're also bleeding on the active tablets. It seems like this just isn't the right contraceptive for you to take. When do you see your doctor?
