Pharmacy Woes
6 Replies RSS
OK, I have a new one for you all. I just called my local (and only one in town) pharmacy to see which generic brand of Norco they carry. I am trying to get a pharmacy lined up for next month's refill so I don't get stuck with the one making me sick. They told me that they cannot share that information until I have a prescription on file with them (a new one). What? That is the most unreal response I have ever had from any pharmacy. Anyone else have this problem? ## I've been told that as well when asking about the manufacturer for generic Xanax. The reason I was asking was because I discovered one brand didn't work for me at all, upsetting me quite a bit one month. I was wary of being stuck with that brand again. I know they say all generics are the same, but through exp...

okc pain mngmnt drs
5 Replies RSS
Can anyone help me with the names of drs who are pain mngmnt. I've had a back surgery, titanium cage with 4 screws and below there I have a herniated disk pressing on my spinal cord. I get so angry at these people I hear asking for narcotics just to use recreationally. We are the ones suffering due to them. I'm so mad. ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, having them refer you to someone might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? The FDA lists narcotics as possibly being habit forming and causing side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. ## I really appreciate your kind words a...

white oblong tablet with 66N7 on it ## This tablet contains 875mgs of Amoxicillin and 125mgs of Clavulanate Potassium, this is a generic for Augmentin. This is an antibiotic used to treat various types of infections. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness, nausea, skin rash and dry mouth. ## I had congestion in my lungs and my dr. gave me AMOX/K Clav 875-125 tab Sandoz. I have taken 14 pills and have a terrible vagina itch. Could this be the cause and what can I do for it.

past expiration date

Can I take Clindamycin HCL 300MG if it expired on 4/26/14? Thank you. ## Hi Dea, While some antibiotics like tetracycline can become toxic after they expire, my findings lead me to believe that Clindamycin doesn't and should also be fine having only been expired for 9 months. According to, Clindamycin has a shelf life of 15 months. There's also an article in the LA Times Newspaper (which you can find online) stating that researchers from the California Poison Control System, UC San Francisco and UC Irvine did a study investigating a variety of old drugs and concluded that many of them are still ok to take even up to 28-40 years after the listed expiration date! That said, I don't think you have anything to worry about as long as it was stored properly and not lef...

Getting off 50mcg/hr Fentanyl Transdermal patch
Post a Reply
I've been on 50mcg/hr Fentanyl Transdermal patch, for 9 years. I've had 4 major back surgeries and kidney stones and the patch does not work any more take the patch every 48 hours and now i'm going to a pain clinic and told them that i want off the patch;they told me to leave the patch on for 72 hours and they would give me 10mg off oxycodone to take 3 times a day. Is that enough because i'm hurting in such a way i cannot explain,i have been taking up to 4 or 5 a day and it seems to help a little better. what do you think i should do?

what is azitromicina
1 Reply RSS
Allergic to penicillin does Azitromicina contain any? ## Hi alton, Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. It does NOT contain any Penicillin, nor is it related to Penicillin. Azithromycin is actually a derivative of Erythromycin, so as long as you aren't allergic to Erythromycin as well, it seems to me that you shouldn't have any problems. Here is a study from The US National Library of Medicine for added validation, discussing the safety of Azithromycin in patients who have a known allergy to Penicillin: I hope this helps!

maximum dose of Suboxone/subutex & chronic pain
193 Replies RSS
what is the maximum dose of suboxone or subutex when you have seere pain? ## what is the maximum daily dose of subutex? I'm taking it to wean off of opiate pain killers but may need to stay on it for chronic pain. My doctor has me taking 2mg up to 6 times a day, but it feels like too much and I feel sick at 6 mg. I can't imagine taking more. Any answers would be helpful... thanks. ## if u have true clinical pain suboxone will not work it is for opiate detox only it is a opiate blocker which will in turn allow ur brain to make its own dopimine ## feelinbettergoinbroke is wrong, suboxone is used for the treatment of chronic pain. Although, I think the reason you are getting sick is because your doctor has you taking 2mg up to 6 times a day. That in itself is causing you to become ...
