Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
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 ...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

methadone and liver
how safe is it,my dr. said it is metabolized in kidneys not liver,I have cirrihosis, I take hydomorphone and methadone. What can I do to help me live longer,I have degenerative back disease,and neuropathy,hospice manages my pain,its horrible.please tell me what will help beside more meds. and best meds. ## Hello, Gena! How are you? How about one of the time released narcotic patches? Both Duragesic and Butrans are available, they are very potent and basically skip the internal processing step. 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? ## To by pass the digestive process of the pain meds, you can go the way of the pain pump...

Spiriva weight gain side effects
I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

procedure of taking trust pill
can i take the trust pill after my menstruation bec as ive search in internet there says u must take the pill on the first day of mens but my firend told me after the mens so tell me pls im confuse bec i want to use trust pill so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month. Are there any comments or questions? ## can i use trust pill as a quick start? Its been two weeks ago since i got my monthly peri...

HOW TO USE SUBOXONE AT HOME
I have ten subs. I have been taking oxycontin for pain but want to try at home to w/d. I can't discuss this with my doctor as it will affect my insurance. This is a fact..in my case... Can someone on here tell me how to use my subs? I would appreciate any answers and no lectures. How many do I need to withdraw..Thanks so much ## you have to be off the oxycontin long enough to start feeling the withdrawals, THEN, and only then, you take the suboxone. I was on a boatload of hydro, and just 2mg calmed me down. make what you have last. start with 2mg,if that doesn't help, do another 2mg. just a little goes a long way ## Suboxone contains a powerful opiate Buprenoprhine, with the agonist Naloxone. So, it can also put opiate users into withdrawals if it is not used carefully. It shoul...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
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 have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. 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. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...
