Can Topiramate 50mg, sm beige/yellow pill be split into half, no center line
I picked up a new RX today for Topiramate 50mg. I received separate instructions from the doctor as well as what is written on the bottle; Take 1/2 pill at bedtime for 1week, then increase by 1/2 tablet each week until you are taking 2 tablets per day (for a total of 100mg daily). Unfortunately this particular pill does not have a center line to divide the pill. My question is, without the center line, can this pill be divided into half and still be assured that each half is 25mg? The manufacture is SUN PHARM - description - small yellow/beige, round pill with an S on one side and 710 on the other. Thank you in advance for your time!

taking prednisone more on then off for 5 YEARS...
My mom has been on prenisone (5mg-20mg) for over five years now for the treatment of fibromyalgia. First the doctor thought it could be polymyaglia, but when the symptoms never got better he diagnosed her to have fibromyalgia. Her pain is all throughout her body and sometimes feels like she can't get out of bed do to sore muscles and joints. She is constantly bruised not knowing how she got them. In 2010, she had symptoms of a heart attack, the doctor told her to "up" her prednisone and she would be fine... Noon that day she suffered a major heart attack. Now, four years later and 60+ pounds greater her has become dependent on the drug. She feels so dependent of this drug becuase she feels like nothing else "helps" the pain. How do I get her help?

Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Hear
After 20 years of taking amitriptyline for headaches I would like to find people who have had any heart related side effects after long term amitriptyline use. ## Very little is known about the long-term effects of most drugs for depression. The biggest problem reported currently is relapse, when the medication is discontinued. You can read more about antidepressants here: As to any cardiac effects, I am only finding warnings that problems may occur if it is used with some specific other medications. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## I have been on Elavil for 20 years and 100mg at bedtime and I don't recommend anyone taking it long term. I have heart palpatations every day which was determined from Dr. that it was hormonal, but I don't believe it. I tried to decrease...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

yellow capsule ig322
i was told that these would help opoid withdrawals? i was prescribed percocet 10mg for the last 2 years and decided i wanted to quit taking them, ive seen prescription pain killers ruin alot of lives and i dont want something like that to happen to me. anyway i havent been feeling good since i quit taking the medicine and a friend gave me these and said they would help make me feel better, i just wanted to get other opinions before a took them. thanks ## These contain 300mgs of Gabapentin, which is an anticonvulsant that's also used to treat some mood disorders and certain types of nerve pain… and to have any affect, they need to be taken for 4 to 6 weeks, so they really aren't going to do anything to help with withdrawals. Have you consulted your doctor? It would most lik...

anywhere to get tramadol after august 18?
Ive been taking tramadol for aprox 8yrs nonstop other than a 7week break. Ive back problems and my knees are broken down do to years of rough wear and tear on top of many injuries. Ive no health insurance either. Truth b told,i cannot function very well at all without taking the tramadol. So i am checking to see of anyone has any insight or suggestions as to where i may b able to purchase tramadol after the 18th of august which is when tramadol becomes a controlled substance. Im aware that ordering overseas is risky but going without the meds is not an option. I am very worried about the change in classification. I never expected anything like this to happen, had i known and not been ignorant to the possibility of not being able to order tramadol online i would have done something diffe...

2 valid perc scripts till surgery recovery then subs
I have been on suboxone for 6 months due to the decision to get off percocets. In the last 5 days I have had 2 major surgeries but my sub script doesnt expire till tues and my sub doctor told me to use the pain meds the surgeons gave me then the day before the operation he changed his mind. I am in extreme pain. In Massachusetts do u think I can fill the percs on tuesday? I am bleeding and in terribke pain ## I think I might be a bit confused, Michelle. I'm assuming the Dr prescribing the Suboxone is a pain management specialist. Is that correct? And the Suboxone is prescribed to ease your dependence on Percocet, correct? And you have a legit written prescription from the Suboxone Dr, but the Suboxone Dr has told you NOT to fill his/her script and to only take what your surgeon pres...

can subutex be a small whit round pill with 8 on one side and an arrow on the other
My friend takes 8mg subutex and when he picked up his script today, they weren't the usual white tablet. They were white and the size of a 2mg subutex with an 8 on one side and an arrow on the other. Could his pharmacist have made a big mistake or are these just a different brand?? ## From what I can tell these tablets do contain 8mgs of Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Subutex. They were originally released in the U.k. and then became available in the U.S. when the generic market for the medication opened up here. So yes, just a different manufacturer, they are made by Arrow, which explains the logo on the tablet, they use that on all of their products. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you so much! I actually did some research on Arrow Generics and saw that they...

Regarding Lyrica, I was prescribed it for fibromyalgia in 2009, 50 mg. twice a day. I took it for three years. I stopped taking it a year & 1/2 ago
I was prescribed Lyrica for fibromyalgia in 2009, 50 mg. twice a day, I took it for three years. It has messed up my life also. Stuttering, lack of memory, my gums hurt for a year, now my front teeth are crooked, and I've been referred to an orthodontist for braces. Really? I'm 63 years old! I'm afraid I'll lose my teeth as some of you have. I STOPPED taking it a year and a half ago on my own. Since I've read all of your problems, now I know why, it's the Lyrica. I had depression, was on anti-depressants. It also caused me to have cateracts, and each eye hemorrhaged one month after the surgery of each eye. I've had blurry vision since, it moves around in my eye like a cloud! We need an attorney that will represent all of us NOW! I even called the FDA. No one ...
