alcohol and Gabapentin
33 Replies RSS
Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema. You can read more on it here: Do you have any other questions? ## what are the bad things with this drug and alcohol? ## I've taken 3600mg of Gabapentin each day for 21 months now! I drink alcohol with them & feel ok. I would just say that the Gabapentin alone will l...

Klonopin brand name
199 Replies RSS
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

Paying attention to details helps the drug you take, help you. Thanks for any help you can offer.w ## As you know some drugs want all the attention and some want to do their work in the dark I'm trying to get rid of 70 pounds of unloved unwanted fat!

176 white pills
2 Replies RSS
Are they just like norco's ## Hi, Mustie! How are you? Yes, these tablets contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Norco. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more Norco details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## my advice to anyone taking hydrocodone is to also ask your doctor for a script of ultram. I have taken these two for over a year. Although I have only found one generic that is as effective(white watsons). Even with them the ultram makes the pain relief last longer. I get the 10's and I split them in half and take a whole 10 ultram. I get 100 hydrocodone and 90 ultram. I have a herniated disc ...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
339 Replies RSS
I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I bought some oxycontin 40 mg. to see if they could replace my 4 mg. Dilaudid. However, I did 1/2 of a 40 mg. and I felt nothing. An hour later I did my 4 mg. Dilaudid and really felt it. But they are very short lived, that's why for cronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered off of Dilaudid?...

white oblong pill M 615
4 Replies RSS
My KEPPRA has always been Yellow with H88 on it now my KEPPRA is White Oblong with M615 on it I have had 3 Seizures since taking the White Oblong. Can you please tell me the difference is and which Brand is Generic? ## Hello, Darlene! How are you? I'm sorry about the seizures you've been experiencing. These medications are listed as containing 500mgs of Levetiracetam, so both are generics for Keppra. Sometimes, seizures can still occur, while taking a medication to prevent them, but it is very unusual that you would suddenly have 3, when given the new tablets. According to the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic medication to the next, they are allowed to different by as much as plus or minus 20% and ...

i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...
