doctors that prescribe anxiety medication and muscle relaxers
I have a chronic pain condition which is Interstitial cystitis (IC) I will not take oxycodone because I was on it for 4 years and it worked great for my pain but I had to keep upping the dosage and became addicted. So now I am on a different pain medication called the Butrans patch and even though it doesn't help as much as I would like it to, it helps with my daily life. So I am able to still do normal daily things. I also have back pain, I am not sure what it is from but the patch does nothing for that either. I am looking for a doctor who would have no problem prescribing me Zanaflex. I tried it once before and it helped tremendously (along with the patch). My other problem is anxiety, my doctor was prescribing me 2mg xanax twice daily. (My mother went into the appointment and ba...

sulfa/trimethoprim 800 160
Im taking sulfameth trimethoprim 800-160 for an infection on my face that went into my lynph nodes. After taking only 2 pills my top lip became swollen with a rash on the inside and blisters on the bottom of my tongue. I stopped taking them for 4 days. I took one today because the infection wasnt going away. Now, my tongue feels like needles are going through it for the past 5 hours. It's now going into my gums and lips. Its also making me very tired, my vision very blurry and extremely agitated. Should I get a different antibiotic for the infection? I"m also allergic to penicillin.

a333 white pill
I just started taking the A333 pill. It is supposed to be a generic substitute for oxycodone 10/325. I was taking the Watson 932 generic substitute but was switched to the A333 pill because of drug store supply. I have noticed the A333 does not work nearly as well as the Watson 932 for me. ## Hello, Will! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. How long have you been taking this one? There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, but they are usual minuscule and normally your body will adjust after a short period of time. ## I have been taking Percocet for a long time. Up until about 4 months ago I would get this strong burst of energy along with killing the pain. It would last about 4hrs. I would get the...

Nalbuphine inj.
I live in Los Angeles, Ca. Im trying to get Nalbuphine inj, The pharmacys dont have it.. Do someone know where to get it around here.... thanks ## Nalbuphine is a semi-synthetic opioid used commercially as an analgesic under a variety of trade names, including Nubain. Have you tried looking for various brand names of this medication? Pharmacies such as Walgreens should easily be able to mail order it with your prescription if they don't have it in stock. I would also inquire about this service as a last resort. Hope this helps! ## contact xxxxx@xxx {edited for privacy} can help ## hi, looking through the forum for nubain I noticed you post, "can help". Possibly and hopefuly you can help me too. after a severe motorcycle accident I have been suffering with progressive, intrac...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
I'm trying to wean myself off the Fentanyl patch. I went from 75 micro-gms to 50 now I'm on 25. Having a problem and not sure it is related to the decrease in the med. It's been 20 days on the 25 micro-gm and I'm going crazy. I need to keep rocking, moving in any way b/c my body is very restless. Is this a symptom of withdrawal and what do I do? I cannot take it any more. ## Yes, that can be caused by withdrawal, you probably jumped down in dosage a little too fast. This med is very, very strong, 80 times stronger than Morphine and it has a half-life of 17 hours, so that means once you take off the patch, it takes 17 hours until it has dwindled to 50% off the full dose in your body, then it slows and actually takes 3 or 4 days before it is all out of your system. So if y...

Seroquel and weight gain
Is anyone else experiencing weight gain from seroquel? I still work out the same as always, and eat the same way, but I have gained over 20 pounds since i started seroquel 2 months ago. I dont want to stop taking it becasue i finally found a drug that helps, but this is an unacceptable side effect to me, anyone have any tips for dealing with this? ## Tell your doctor he might be able to help. ## I have been taking seroquel for about six months now and I have actually lost 16lbs. I take a dose of 400mg a day and have not hadd any problems. I have not even changed my diet or my exercise habits (which aren't the best). I do not have any side effects maybe it is a combination of the seroquel and other medicines you are taking? Seroquel actually began as a medicine given after surgery as...

adderall e40
It's Sandoz 30mg I don't feel the effect as I would on the Corepharma ## Hi Isa, How are you doing? One of the possible reasons why you may not be getting the same amount of relief with Sandoz as you might with Corepharma, is often due to the fact that each manufacturing company uses a different set of binders/fillers (inactive ingredients). This is basically the extra fluff that holds the tablet together. Some companies use more of it than others, and some even go so far as using cheaper genetically modified substances that our body's can't metabolize (yet it's what's covering up the actual active substance, blocking it being released in it's normal therapeutic quantity/bioavailability). This is what I believe is occurring in patients who report having simil...

Amox Clav 875mg tablets - Almost 4 months on same Antibiotic - Building Resistance?
Hello - My Husband has been taking Amox Clav 875 2 x per day for almost 4 months. He has diabetic pressure ulcers on his feet that are healing very slowly. We are going for a liver transplant in a few months and I am concerned that he could be building up a resistance to this drug? Can that happen? Should I rotate him onto another antibiotic for the next few weeks until this heals? Thank you so much for help!!! ## Hello, Michelle! How are you and your husband? It would be best to continue taking the one that has been prescribed by his doctor. It is later, such as when he has surgery, that they will be concerned with using a different one, if an antibiotic is needed. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything ...

Taking suboxone after norco
I have been on 16 mg of suboxone for almost a month. Last night I took 3 norco 10 mgs at the same time. It has been 15 hours can I take my suboxone? ## From what I've seen on other threads, it seems like most people recommend waiting until the norco is completely out of your system before taking suboxone (which may be an estimated 24-48 hours based on how much you took). So yeah, I get the sense that you're on the right track, but if it were me I'd probably try to wait it out for another day or so (may be easier said than done). There's also something called a Clinical Opiate Withdrawal Scale (COWS) which you can look up online that asks you a series of questions to help you better determine when you might be in withdrawals and therefore ready to use suboxone. I hope thi...

orange smell & flavor, round tablet, no markings
My dad just realized tonight that his 60mg Morphine Sul tablet tasted different than normal? In fact, it smells & tastes like citrus orange!? There isn't a single marking on these small, round tablets either? I'm really scared that perhaps someone switched out his pills or that the pharmacy mistakingly filled his script with the incorrect prescription?! He is in great need of his painkiller scripts, so I'm really interested in figuring this one out! ## Pretty sure that's a suboxone. Which I find it super hard to believe a pharmacy would mix the two up. If you have a different question or you're raiding a medicine or your dad's cabinet I wouldn't suggest taking it if you have methadone in your system or expect hell on earth. Suboxone is an opiate agonist a...

drinking on Lexapro
I was just wondering if anyone has drank with this med and were there any side effects ? I've been on lexapro 10 mil for a month and am feeling great but I am petrified to even atempt to drink alcohol,but would like to try . So if anyone could help that would be great. ## I have been on Lexapro for 3 years. I drink about twice a week and everything seems to be fine. I have noticed that if you drink heavly for a few nights in a row you will feel a slight depression. Just don't over do it. I was worried at first also. ## Lexapro is an antidepressant. Drinking alcohol is not recommended, as alcohol is a major depressant, and undoes the work the medication does. ## Never do that! I was on that medicine for 2 years, and I was never able to drink! the first time I drank when I was on ...
