since when does a LPSW, LQSW and OQSW have the right to be in consult room with you and your Doctor - as well as actually tell, not discuss current medications which I, the patient, have been taking for over a year and a half . Does HIPAA protect me as well a informed consent for a third party to invite themselves into the actual discussion/consutation?

30 meligams of roxycotin
small round light blue pill with a box around a big M ## To positively identify this, you need to post back and provide the complete imprint that is on the tablet. An M in a box is the logo for Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and they manufacture a lot of different medications. ## What different states do you people live in in Ohio hear they just passed a law that limits what doctors can prescribe them I want to move out of this Nazi state

Watson vs. Mylan generic lorazepam side effects.
Been on Sandoz mfr. lorazepam for 10 years; no problems; no need to increase dose. Sandoz stopped mfr. Now, can only get these generic's & Actavis.

weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what r they for. ## WELL THIS IS A DIET PILL THAT WAS TAKING OF THE MARKET IN TH U.S. BACK IN 1989 FOR THE REASON THAT IT WAS HURTING EITHER UR LUNGS ECT. IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply. In most cases, you can get away with carrying small amounts, around 3 months worth or less, of a drug into the US, without having it seized or questioned by customs. Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...

missouri pain dr for son in wheelchair
I just moved to stella MO near Joplin, i dont know the area well, but my oldest son has MD and spinal rods put in his back, he has been in a wheelchair since 3 years old, he is grown now, but i dont know where to take him, he is on lortab, soma and xanax along with many other non narcotics pills. Does anyone know where i can take him and they will not treat him like a pill head, and that would take his insurance, he is on SSI Thanks a worried mom ## Put, Missouri HealthNet Provider Search, in your search bar. Be sure to call and verify that a dr does accept medicaid. You also need to contact your sons Health Plan and be sure that the dr is on their plan. There is no guarantee that another dr will treat him with the same meds as his last dr. The new dr should also get a copy of his medic...

how long to get out your system
h ow long does it take for daliresp to get out of your system. ## Hi Cindi, According to the US National Library of Medicine, "the average plasma half-life of Roflumilast and its metabolite (N-oxide) are reported to be an approximate 17 and 30 hours." Ref: This means that after every 17 hours, half of the Roflumilast you took is on it's way out of your system, and in another 17 hours there will be "half of that remaining half" left in your system, and so forth. This isn't including the half life of the metabolite (N-oxide), but if you're only concerned about the drug itself, you should be in the clear after a few days I'd imagine. Although this also depends on how much you took as well as several other factors (suc...

Dilaudid Elago 24mg ER once a day versus 120mg. MS Contin
I have several physical back,neck,knee,foot issues that cause chronic pain. I have been on pain medications for about 20 years. Yes..I know it sounds like a long time. But I had small kids to raise and a very unsupportive husband. I am at a pain clinic. Recently I asked to be taken off of MS Contin 60mg. twice a day with 3 tablets of 4mg. dilaudid for breakthrough pain. I did take the dilaudid sparingly according to my activity level. Well..they wanted me to try long acting ELAGO in place of the morphine. I feel like the ELAGO does not last 24 hours and I feel like I need to take more 4mg. dilaudid. I also feel like I am getting a rapid heartbeat sometimes. Could you tell me what may be happening to me? I was hoping to not have to take anything other than the ELAGO ER, but it is not the...

primolut n tablet
I'm going on holiday in about 4 weeks time and my period will be due at the same time. I know I can take primolut n to delay my period, but after reading about the side effects it sounds like I might have Pms-like symptoms while I'm taking it. So I'm wondering if once the period I'm on now finishes I could take the primolut n tabs for about a week or so, would this bring my period on early? So I could get it out of the way before my holiday?? ## Actually, there are no guarantees that it will delay your period, or bring it on early. It might, but it is a hormone and when you are playing with the levels of them in your body, the effects can be unpredictable. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? They'd be the best person to advise you in this matter. ## Thanks...

Long White Pill With 2 On One Side And Xano The Other What Kind Of Is This
I have a long white bar with 3 hatch marks, one side has a large number 2 on it and the other side has XANO on the other side, what is this? ## Xano is a foreign brand name for Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax, the 2 on it indicates that it is a 2mg tablet. This is a Benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, irritability and headache. More details: Is there anything else I can help with? ## I take xanax for anxiety also but recently received pills similar but it says ONAX and are a lot bigger than the xanax I'm use to taking. I also am not sure of the change or if they work as well or anything , one thing I do know is they are changing the look and imprints on all narcotic medication due to people selli...

what does the v mean on a white pill
I was asked bye a friend if what he takes is a percocet or vicodin because his new pills are the v perc 5s. So i told him they were generic percocet and he thinks the v stands for vicodin. He thinks vicodin is the brand name. Can u explain this a little better for me thanx ## Most likely, it is the symbol for the manufacturer of the pills.. Qualitest

klonopin brand name not available
Hi as everyone who takes brand name Klonopin knows its on backorder. I have try the generic it don't work for me.. But that is at the same mg as the Brand. I was wondering if anyone has try the generic at a higher mg? And if so did it work like the brand name? ## Hi Sharon, Sorry to hear that the generic didn't end up working for you. I did want to point something out though that may be the reasoning as to why it's not as effective as the brand name (even at the same milligrams). I think it really comes down to the "inactive/non-medicinal" ingredients that they also put into these tablets. These ingredients are known to vary between brands and generics alike, but I have also heard that companies will often use cheaper binders and fillers in their generic versions to ...

anxiety worse on pristiq
6 months ago my doctor switched me to Pristiq xr 100mg to replace Effexor xr 75mg. The med. always seems to stop working after abot 6 or7 months or so. I have not seen my doc in 6 months and i've noticed my anxiey is terrible. I don't trust co-workers and am paronoid that when I walk into work, they are thinking bad thoughts of me. This stops me from opening up/making friends. My co-workers eventually end up not liking me. I hope someone can relate with me. 5 years ago this was just depression, and the in the last 3 years whatever anxiety I may have had has slowly gotten worse. Is this typical of these medications? I've even considered divorcing just to start a new life/new chapter. I hope someone can help. thank you. ## My wife of 13 years started acting irrational, had ras...

round orange pill 029 on one side r the other
By what means do people take this tablet illegally? Orally thru the nose or injection or even smoke? ## @Kim, With "R 029" being a 0.5 mg generic Alprazolam tablet, it's probably one of the most highly abused drugs on the market. People find many ways to abuse these types of medications, if not by all of the methods in which you already mentioned. I wont go into detail because I already know its being done by those who could care less about the dangerous consequences. If you have a loved one who's been misusing this medication I'd probably suggest some sort of supportive intervention to encourage them to take it as prescribed. But depending on how deep they are into their level of abuse, it may take a lot of patience; at which point, maybe their doctor could begin to...
