Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them eac...

suboxone medicaid in south florida
Well i am an addict and have been on subutex and suboxone for about 4 months but i get them through a friend. I just found out im 2 1/2 months pregnant. This is my 2nd child and with the first i was on drugs and got on subutex but it was through a detox center. Does anyone know a subutex doctor that takes insurence in south florida? ## Hello, Tara! How are you? Congratulations! The best thing to do would be to see an OB Gyn and have them refer you to someone that is familiar with treating pregnant women, that way you can ensure the best possible outcome for you and your baby. 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. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that ar...

suboxone how long before it helps with pain
if you are given an increase in suboxone how long before it helps with pain ## Hello, David! How are you? It is a narcotic, so it should start to have some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it. 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. However, some people have reported it that it really didn't help their pain, so if it does nothing to alleviate yours, you may need to try a different medication. Has it helped, at all?

xanax morphine somas hydrocodone problems
I am perscribed morphine hydrocodone somas and xanex. My question is this. Has anyone ever had really wierd side effects off of this combo? I have hallucinated a couple times. I have accidentally over dosed because as my wife said i kept getting out of bed to take more but don't remember at all. If someone has had these issues please let me know if it's the medicine or something else please ## Hello, Bill! How are you? I am very sorry about the problems you've experienced. While it could be due to the combination, my first guess is actually to blame the Xanax, it has been known to cause these type of issues in some people that take it. The night that you kept getting up to take more, was it after taking an evening dose of the Xanax? This benzodiazepine carries the risk of be...

slim k bethel 30
Hi I would like to know is this pills have any side effects ## Hello, Karen! How are you?

A Fib with excessive hypertension
Just had an A Fib episode and blood pressure shot up to 187/107. When I have combination of both, I take 1 mg Clonidine tablet recommended by ER doctor. I already take metoprolol twice a day plus a Clonidine patch and Multaq twice daily for the A Fib. Taking the Clonidine tab when bp is this high has kept me out of the ER. This started at 8 pm and by 10 pm my blood pressure dropped to 134/87 and I was back in rhythm. Multaq has been a blessing, I do not feel palpitations in the chest when I have my episodes. I usually get short of breath really fast that is an indicator for me. ## Hi MeeMaw, Sorry to hear about your recent episode with A-Fib. I hope you've managed to get things under control by now. Do you know what it was that might've initially triggered the onset of this atri...

white pill with green specks
a white pill with green specks on it,, it is oblong with no imprints on it,,,, ## Hello, Deb! How are you? If it has no markings, we can rule it out as being a prescription medication, since all manufactured prescription tablets in the U.S. are required to have markings to enable their identification. That means that it is most likely an over the counter product, of some type, though there is a small chance that it could be a foreign medication. That said, it may be difficult to determine an ID for this tablet, however, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

i have long thin oval white pill blank on one side the other side has 3 score marks with gg 2 4 and 9 top to bottom on the other side
The marked side of the pill has GG then 2 then 4 then 9 with a score marked between the GG and the 2 and a score mark between the 2 the 4. So it can be broken into 4 pieces. It is all white and blank on the other side. I was told it is a Zanax. ## Hello, Tim! How are you? That is correct, this tablet contains 2mgs of Alprazolam, it is a generic for Xanax. This medication is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

orphenadrine er
I can't take meds with Tylenol in them does this muscle relaxer have it in it? I can't find the ingredients any where on the web and I am having muscle spasms do to car accident but don't want to take any thing that has Tylenol in it. Thank you ## Hello Wheeler! How are you? I'm happy to help you! No, Orphenadrine is the active ingredient, so there is no Tylenol/Acetaminophen in it. It is used as a muscle relaxant to treat the pain and spasms associated with strains, sprains and injuries. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No that helps a lot thanks so much for the reply . They really have helped the muscle spasms only side effect I've had is they make me a little tired.

amox tr k clv 875 125 generic for Augmentin
Severe Abdominal pain the whole way around my hips!!!!!! ## Hello, Kim! How are you? Are you saying that's a side effect that you're experiencing? This is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections and its normal side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Severe pain is definitely not a normal side effect and is something you should speak to your doctor about.

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...

can you drink alcohol while taking sulfamethoxazole trimethoprim
I have been on this medication since tuesday (and have not experienced any side effects) when I thought my wound was infected, but it was not. My doctor gave me about 25 pills to take as a precaution to avoid it getting infected in the future. If I do not take the pills for 36 hours, will I be able to drink alcohol without having side effects? Also, what is the likelihood of my wound getting infected if I do not take the antibiotic for over 48 hours? ## Hello, Colleen! How are you? It is really best to abstain from alcohol, while taking any prescription medication. When you imbibe while on an antibiotic, it can cause worsening of the side effects, so you may experience nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. It can cause one drink to affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. And taking a br...

hydrcodone 5/325 (lortab) shortage
I just left Walgreens in Nasjville, TN and was told that that they can't fill my prescription for 10/325 (Lortab) due to a problem with the manufacturer. I called a Publix pharmacy that told ne that a change in the delivery scheduling is causing the shortage. I sure hope they clear this up soon! ## Hello, Bennie! How are you? I'm sorry that you're having a problem getting your prescription filled. We are also into the time of year where there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a company has produced their allotted amount, they can't manufacture any new product, until the new year. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, d...

A police report assist me on the medications that were stolon ## Hello, Candice! How are you? I'm very sorry about the theft. It will really depend on what medication was stolen. If it was a controlled substance, the police report might keep your doctor from penalizing you, but they most likely will not replace the prescription. If it was something life-sustaining, such as blood pressure medication, then yes, they should replace it for you. Is there anything else I can help with?

stronger
Which is stronger hydroxyzine 50mg, 25mg or 10mg ## Hello, Josephine! How are you? I know prescription medications can be confusing, but the higher the number the higher the dose.

Side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Taking Equetro
I was diagnosed Bipolar over 20 years ago. As many who have this "disease" I have been off and on many different types of meds. Many of those meds stopped working, no longer work, or I have an intolerance to. I have been on Equetro, Serequel, and Klonopen now for quite a while with success. I am "older" now and this years has been the worse year of my life with my bipolar. I am scared that it will overtake me again and so am vigilant with my meds NOW. After a really bad year of trying many different meds and combination of meds, I am finally doing well. However, when I get busy with all my life's responsibilities, I may forget a dose of my meds. This never use to bother me. I would just take the next dose and move on. LATELY though, if I miss even one dose, it is not...

New Federal Xanax Laws?
I have done a lot of reading on the new United States 2013 Xanax laws. There aren't any? You can still obtain up to a 6 month supply of any schedule IV (4) medicine which includes Xanax. Some States have limited MD's to writing for a 30 day supply even forcing you to see a Specialist and putting you on a 'performance plan'. Please do not confuse local and State laws with Federal laws! ## I haven't come across any new laws pertaining to the use of Xanax in my research either. Were you led to believe that there would be any sort of changes this year? Erowid tends to have a pretty up to date list of this type of information on an international level if you're interested in having a look: erowid.org/pharms/alprazolam/alprazolam_law.shtml I hope this helps! ## Yes tha...
