Cymbalta long term issues
5 Replies RSS
Hey everyone! I would really like to get some feedback from people who have been on Cymbalta for at least a few years. I have been on Cymbalta 60 mg for three months now. I feel that it has given me some relief from my nerve pain related to damage from surgeries on the right wrist. But there have been some concerning stories from long-term users of Cymbalta; including diminished pain relief, short-term memory loss, weakness, etc. I am very concerned about whether there are long-term side effects of this drug. Especially because I heard that the longer you take it the harder it is for your body to get off it. Feedback from any long-term users of Cymbalta, good stories and bad stories, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you ## Hello, Concerned! How are you? There are such risks associate...

Major Side Effects Of Dexona And Practin
86 Replies RSS
Does Dexona and Practin Tabs Increase weight...? Will i have any problems in future....? ## Please I recommend not to use practin and dexona....for weight gain... i used them for 2 mnths for weight gain...i gained 12 kgs in 2 months but after leaving those tablets..i had jaundice..and had anrexia and nausea ...and had no appetite..i lost all 12 kgs in only 15-20 days...but the symptoms continued..i had a doctor checkup ..he told me that it will take 8-12 months to recover.. However u can use only practin.... ## I have to agree, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, it isn't safe to try to use these medications just to gain weight. Like any drug, they carry the risk of causing other severe side effects, just like Nayan has stated. Practin contains the active ingredient Cypr...

Lo Loestrin Fe - Missed Periods
289 Replies RSS
I've been taking Lo Loestrin Fe at the same time every day consistantly for two months with no period... is this normal? ## Yes, it can be. These do contain hormones, to prevent pregnancy and they can affect different people in different ways. Some women will menstruate regularly and some won't. There is really no harm in skipping, but if you are concerned about it, you should consult your doctor. Many women use their birth control to skip their menstrual cycle, especially for important events, such as marriage or vacations. Have you contacted your doctor? ## i started taking lo loestrin fe the first day of my last period and during the 3rd week i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. i had been having breakthough bleeding. Is this okay? id missed one pill at the beging of the ...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone minnesota
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been on 90mg of methadone for about 5 years for chronic and many pain issues, my dr has retired and my current dr does not want to keep me on my meds. Does anyone know a Dr in Minnesota who will help? ## Hello, Sheila! How are you? Most doctors are going to be reluctant to prescribe Methadone, since it is so highly addictive. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place by the DEA last year, a general practice physician can't prescribe it, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The FDA lists this 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. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? Is there a chance your PCP might b...

Which Is Stronger oxycodone-acetaminophen 10-325 or morphin sulfate ir 30 mg
2 Replies RSS
im sorry i had wrong dose its 10-325 oxycodone-acetaminophen and morphine sulfate ir 30 mg ## Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so if you were taking the 30mgs of Morphine and wanted to switch to Oxycodone, you'd only need 15mgs of the Oxycodone. You can learn more Morphine details here and you can learn more Percocet details here. And, in this case, since you're asking about a generic for Percocet, the Acetaminophen needs to be taken under consideration, because that actually potentiates the action of the Oxycodone, making it stronger, so you may be looking at a different of an additional 2mgs efficacy strength, give or take. Is there anything else I can help with? ## People respond differently to different doses of pain medications. So the relative equa...

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.
