HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SAVELLA
I JUST BEGAN THE NEW PRESCRIPTION DRUG FOR FIBROMYALGIA THIS WEEK CALLED SAVELLA IN PILL FORM. MY BLOOD PRESSURE HAS RISEN FROM AN AVERAGE OF 122/70 TO 155/85. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM? WILL IT REGULATE BACK DOWN AFTER BODY ADJUSTS. OTHERWISE SURE FEEL A WHOLE LOT BETTER THEN WHEN ON CYMBALTA FOR SAME DISEASE. COULD IT BE A WITHDRAWAL EFFECT FROM THE CYMBALTA? I WENT OFF THAT 24 HOURS BEFORE STARTING SAVELLA. HEADACHES, JITTERY, HYPER WERE NOTICED IMMEDIATELY, THAT IS GETTING BETTER EACH DAY. ## Your experience parralels mine. I transitioned from cymbalta to titration pack of savella in one day. Very rough withdrawal. Worked my way up to full dose of Savella in October. BP was rising at half dose, Dr. thought at full dose pain would be lessened and BP would fall. I have always h...

I'm angry,out of control , yelling at my children and family, I dont know what to do!!
I have been on just close to every type of antideppresent but recently went off , my moods are so severe , anger ,yelling,hittingect... I cant stop. Help!! ## call the behavioral center or a hospital in your area for mental hellth they will evaluate you and tell you to come in so you can talk to the therapist, see the dr and get meds to help you control anger. I had felt like that and been off meds as you see is not helping. It is great you know what is going on and trying to do something, it shows you love yourself and your family. make the call and let me know how it went.

doctors who will prescribe pain medication nj
I was in a car accident and had a head injury and my migraines started. They have been on and off all my life and started up again when I get cancer and was given chemo with facial in it. My migraines started up again and were so severe I was going to stop all chemo. They thought I was going to die and assigned me a palliative care pain management doctor. I did not die and my migraines never stopped. My pain management Dr dropped me and I can't find another Dr to prescribe anything. I took .39mgs of occasions every 4 hours and never abused them. Im in monmouth county, nj if anyone knows a Dr that still prescribes it. I have tried hundred of pain killers and nothing else works. Please help me {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Nova! How are you?

Muscle spasms in back and numbness infoot
I use to have occasional back muscle spasms about twic a year that would last about 3 or 4 days. I started taking quid for AFib in April. Now I am having severe muscle spasms in my back every 2 weeks and they last up to 8 days. I have also developed numbness in the bottom of my left foot. Can this be caused by the eliquis ## Hello, Dorothy! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, it could be due to the Eliquis, many people taking it have complained about similar issues. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Have you consulted your doctor, yet? Are you on any other medications? ## Dorothy,try gabapenten for your foot problem. Talk to your doc and that drug elliquis get rid of it .That drug is gar...

Oxycontin 60mg vs Oxycodone 60mg are they the same
I have been taking Oxycontin60mg but I am now in my coverage donut and can not afford my prescription. I had taken Oxycodone once before and it just didn't work as well. Was that phycological or is there a difference in the 2 medications. Run out of this months prescription in 3 days. Help. ## oxycontin = time released oxycodone. same drug. the time release will distribute the medication over a period of time, and without it the entire dose will be administered at once. ## Okay, I remove the incorrect information, because Pharma Guy is absolutely correct. They are the same medication, Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Oxycontin, the only operative factor is that it is in a controlled release formulation. So, whether or not the Oxycodone you get will work the same for you will al...

Ketamine for Depression?
This thread is an offshoot of a related one that discussed Scopolamine as a treatment for depression. /Discuss/is-anybody-being-prescribed-scopolamine-for-depression-209022_s2.htm It was recommended by the members of that thread that one be started that directly relates to ketamine and it's use to treat depression. If anyone besides myself would like to discuss it's use ias a treatment for depression, feel free to post your questions, answers and experiences here. ## thanks michael- yes, i am very interested in hearing about your experience so far with ketamine. both the iv application and the nasal route. i'm not too keen on the nasal route, but like i said, i will try that first due to cost. so, how you feeling? john ## Thanks for setting up this Discussion Michael!

Severe tooth pain with root canal
issues surfaced with a tooth that was absessed, required a root canal. This was nearly three years ago. Severe pain occured 24 hours ago, saw dentist, may need tooth extracted. Was given 7.5/325 hydrocodone acetaminoph. I have taken two tablets. Pain persists. May I take ibuprofen with diphenhydramine in combinations with hydrocodone? ## Hi monica, Sorry to hear about your tooth abscess! Though, if something as strong as hydrocodone isn't helping with your pain, I'd have to wonder if the doctor made the right call on giving you pain meds instead of antibiotics for an infected tooth, since that's not necessarily something hydrocodone or any pain medication is supposed to help with. In my opinion, antibiotics would probably help with the pain more so than anything else, becaus...

Fentanyl Patches 100mg not doing jack squat
Hi I'm on 100 I do know when they run but they don't desalt seem to do much what is better then this for osteo pain? Thanks ## The 100mcg Fentanyl patches are actually the strongest narcotic analgesic on the market, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Learn more Fentanyl details here. What other medications have you tried? How long do you wear each patch? ## Fentanyl should NEVER be used for osteo pain. It works on nerve pain but I've never know it to work on knee replacement, etc. 100 mcg/hr is the MAXIMUM dose. Any more than that can be FATAL. I'm not a physician, but I'd recommend Naproxin 500 mg twice a day. It is the active ingredient in Alieve BUT it is the prescription strength and is cheaper than any other drug I've found that works. Fentanyl s...

yeduc pills.
Would the pills still work if they are expired. I have some that expired about like 8 months ago. Will they still have same effect? ## @lulu, From what I can tell, there don't appear to be any specific details on the shelf life of Yeduc (Sibutramine) listed online; and my guess is that it's probably because Sibutramine was banned due to it causing an increased risk of serious heart/cardiovascular related side effects. So in that aspect I wouldn't necessarily consider it to be safe whether it's supposed to be expired or not... but 8 months isn't a really long time either if you kept it stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Most medications (with the exception of certain antibiotics) are actually still good for many years after the expiration date.

I'm very sorry to hear that you ended up in the ER because of this. According to wikipedia, Kratom is said to behave in the same way as an "µ-opioid receptor agonist" like morphine. So by taking Naltrexone (an o...

CYCLO/GABA/LIDO/CAPSA cream
Cyclo/GABA/lido/capsa 10:5:5:0.025% gel. My second gel/ cream is Fl/lid/men/cam 25/5/5/1% PLO. This is a new medication for my neck. How does this medication work and what are possible side affects? ## @machilinda, I've attempted to decipher the abbreviations you mentioned for each individual cream/ointment, but am only finding details on the first one "Cyclo/GABA/lido/capsa" (which I believe translates to cyclobenzaprine + gabapentin + lidocaine + capsaicin). Is there anyway you can confirm if this is true as well as verifying the full spelled out name of the other ointment? Information I gathered on this first cream indicates that it's used topically for pain management. However, concerning possible side effects, there are honestly too many to list outside of the typic...

Do I have to Taper ?
So I was on 3-4 oxycodone 30mg for about a year less then a month ago I was switched to fentanyl 100mg patches I don't like them can i quit cold turkey since I have only been on about month or less or do I have to taper off? ## Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine, so quitting cold turkey isn't advisable. You may end up experiencing severe withdrawals, that could put you in danger. A slow taper with medical assistance would be the best thing to do. 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. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I got them from a friend because i lost my script and could go cold turkey I...
