Metformin Hcl 500 Mg Side Effects
can i use tab.Metformin for weight reduction? i wanted to know the side effects of Metformin ## I wouldn't count on using an anti-diabetic drug for weight loss. Your best bet is a healthy change in eating habits and regular exercise. A pill won't lose the weight for you. Sorry to sound blunt, but it would be ignorant to think otherwise. As far as side effects go...the most common adverse effect of metformin is gastrointestinal upset, including diarrhea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and increased flatulence; metformin is more commonly associated with gastrointestinal side-effects than most other anti-diabetic drugs. The most serious potential side-effect of metformin use is lactic acidosis; this complication is very rare, and the vast majority of these cases seem to be related to com...

dilaudid / 170 mg of methadone
I have 4 mg of dilaudid but in on about 170mg of methadone, I recently feel and sprained my elbow and was wondering if this will take away the pain, or will I be taking it for no reason ## Hi Joanna from RI, because u r on such a high dose of methadone, taking the 4mg of Dilaudid will probably defeat the purpose. I wouldn't recommend taking the Dilaudid. You probably wouldn't get any effect from it anyway. But, I wouldn't mix the 2. I'm sorry 2 hear about your pain, I suffer everyday with pain. But, I'm on suboxone. Use 2 b on methadone, which helped much more with pain. But, I switched 2 suboxone. What a dumb move I made. I'm also from RI. Good Luck! ## No dilaidid is on of those meds that work great on pain while takeing methadone i was on very high doses of me...

tramadol after August 18??
Hearing lots of places that the people who order tramadol via internet will no longer be able to. I live in a town with uptight doctors who charge outrageous prices plus insist on doing constant testing before writing a prescription. If true what are my option after Aug 18 ## i wish i had an answer for you, i have been using it for 3 years, more as a anti-depressant. I take 200 mg a day and feel good, certainly not intoxicated. This decision by FDA is ridiculous. Tramadol is not in the same class as Percs and Roxys etc. Unbelievable. I can go to Dr but i will be spending mad $ on their BS. Prices in the international market will now be inflated as well. The market is risky unless you know credible sources. ## Tramadol will become a Controlled Substancde Schedule IV in Aug. But, Schedule...

Suboxone Doctors on Long Island
Suboxone Doctors on Long Island,NY that take HIP/Medicaid. Trying to find one ASAP. ## I'm sorry, there's really no central listing that I know of that lets you know what doctors treat with Suboxone and take any certain insurance. Learn more Suboxone details here. I'd suggest contacting HIP/Medicaid and asking if they have any information that can help you, or you can try the Suboxone.com website to find doctors in your area, then contact them to see what insurance they accept. Does anyone else know of one? ## Hi... I know of a doctor in glen cove..and he did take hip/medicaid bc that's what I had and he did prescribe suboxone from what I know. You can email me at {edited for privacy} for more info...I'm looking for help myself lol ## Hey can you help me out at all? ...

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Qutting Tramadol with Suboxon
This is the first message I have ever left in a Tramadol forum so I apologize if it isn't in the right location. I just wanted to tell a little about my story. I have been addicted to Tramadol for the last 4 years. My doctors assured me that it was not addictive and was a great option for my pain. I have had multiple surgeries on my knee and have chronic pain and for a while the Tramadol did help. But it didn't take long before I realized that I also like the way that I felt when I took it. As time went on the dose didn't do it for me so I kept taking more and more. For the last few months I was up to 40 -45 of them a day. It was a constant struggle to keep myself supplied and was costing me a small fortune. Other than my addiction my life is great. I own a successful busine...

dextroamp amphet side effects
My son takes this medicine in developed breast in i need answer ## Are you sure that is the only medication he is on ? Breast development in males isn't a side effect of Dextroamphetamine. As a matter of fact, in some girls it can cause a delay in development. ## @Pauline, While gynaecomastia isn't listed as a side effect, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's not possible among a smaller percentage of users taking Dextro-amphetamine. Other "poisons" such as Accutane are famous for causing unlisted side effects. Apparently one user wrote in on another thread stating that they were taking Adderall during their puberty stage, and their "man boobs" never went away. I also noticed a couple other discussion threads going on this same topic, which leads me to...

hydrocodone longterm
I have been taking hydrocodone for about three years. Up until recently I have not exceeded the recomended dose of 8 tablets in a 24 hr period. I have been taking 12-14 tablets 2-3 days in a row then back to 8. I function better on this medication but wonder what damage the long term use could cause. I am searching for that balance of pain management/depression and healthy body.

Diltiazem xt 180 mg
Has anyone had the reddening of the skin due to peripheral vaso dilation, if so when med. Was discontinued did it subside and long did it take? ## Hi Tee, While I don't have personal experience with this particular drug, I did want to add that one of the severe side effects related to Diltiazem is a rash. Does this sound like what you are referring to when you mention "reddening of the skin"? You can view a list of the "severe" side effects posted below: -swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, hands, arms, feet, ankles, or lower legs -difficulty breathing or swallowing -fainting -rash -yellowing of the skin or eyes -nausea -extreme tiredness -unusual bleeding or bruising -lack of energy -loss of appetite -pain in the upper right part of the stomach -flu-like sympt...

Seven Kidney Tumors Removed
Hi Cancer Patients. My right kidney was removed about a year ago with stage 3 kidney cancer. A year later it returned with 7 tumors in my colon, small intestines, liver and abdomen - stage 4 kidney cancer. I was turned down for an operation at a big local hospital. They wanted me on Sutrent as a substitute. A second opinion at City of Hope Cancer Hospital, Duarte, CA had a wonderful surgeon and three other specialist surgeons remove all 7 tumors in a 10 hour operation. Now I am on a test for Votrient to keep tumors from coming back taking 800 mg daily. Has anyone been on this test after a similar experience? How are your progressing? ## Liver and Kindey cancer
