Get refill early
I had my dr call in and approve for me to get my refill early. What do I need to say to get this done again if I call in and act as the nurse to approve early refill due to the office closed.

small green nerve pill
In the 1980's a Dr. gave me a green pill that made my tongue numb, if I left it there. Imagine what it does to the brain. Can you tell me its name? ## Hello, Hammer! How are you? Actually, that's not a valid comparison, because there are many medications that may cause irritation to the mouth, esophagus, stomach and various other organs, but are still beneficial in the body. Thus, the fact that it made your tongue numb doesn't necessarily mean that it did anything untoward to your brain, or any other internal part of your body. Now, moving on… that's not much of a description to go on, there are have been many green pills on the market, some that are still available and some that have been discontinued. Do you remember any other details about it? Anything else you ...

Savella has devinatley made the pain from Fibromyalgia decrease. but I am very, very constipated. Has this happened to anyone else??? ## Great to hear that this is working so well for you. Constipation is a known side effect of this medication, along with nausea, headache and insomnia. Have you tried any remedies? When I have this problem with medications, I usually find that fiber supplements are quite helpful. ## YES! Constipation was horrible. It actually caused me to stop taking Savella. But now intense pain is back. A real Catch-22. Have you found a solution to the problem? ## I too have the problem with constipation, but I have found if I drink plenty of water and fruits and vegts I am able to get along just fine. ## I too also took sAvella for two and a half months. My pain went ...

Alprazolam GG 249 vs Alprazolam G 372 2
What is the difference between Alprazolam stamped GG 249 and Alprazolam stamped G 3722? The only difference that stands out to me when I research it is that they're made by two different manufacturers. True? Or is there more to it? ## Hi jax, From what I could gather, both tablets reportedly contain 2mgs of Alprazolam. However because they are manufactured by different companies, each tablet is also recognized for having a different set of "inactive" ingredients. Sandoz (GG 249) contains: microcrystalline cellulose + docusate sodium + lactose monohydrate + magnesium stearate + sodium benzoate + corn starch Greenstone (G 372 2) contains: cellulose powdered + corn starch + docusate sodium lactose + magnesium stearate + silicon dioxide + sodium benzoate These ingredients don...

Xolair/Omalizumab-Hair Loss
I have been taking this medication for 5 month and I have experience a lot of hair loss. Spoke with a friend who is taking the medication as well and has experienced tremendous hair loss. She has used Redkin Hair Products, with good success, she has managed to recoup much of her hair. Has anyone else experienced hair loss? ## I too have had hair loss. My hair is very thin now and I haven't touched a razor to my legs in months. ## yeah. I'm 16 and i have. ## Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of side effect information available on this drug, yet. You would probably be surprised to know how many drugs do cause hair loss, though. ## Hi. I am 20 years old and I have been shedding hair like crazy over the past two years..... I am not sure why this is happening. It's not geneti...

Losartan 25mg green vs white pills
Hello, Got a new refill on my Losartan 25mg. which was a small green pill versus the normal oval white. I started the new ones yesterday and within a half hour of taking them I develope a headache. Stayed with me all day. Not a pounding debilitating one but just a constant nagging headache. Today I woke up fine but within a half hour of taking my pill I have a headache again. Same as yesterday. Not sure if this is being caused by something in the new pill "fillers" as they call them. Just know I never had this issue until I started the green losartan yesterday. Do I wait a few more days and risk that this is going to continue as a side effect? Not that it makes me unable to function but it is an irritation that I never had to deal with in the past on Losartan. Being the holiday my

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Going to start it tomorrow. Anyone else taking it and how do you like it? Thanks, ls ## Started taking it on 07-13. Coming off of Effexor and Lexapro. ## Thanks, and keep me updated on how you feel. I take Welbutrin and am adding this med. Used to take Lexapro with the Welbutrin, but it just make me feel like nothing, so I got off it. Hopefull, and from what I have read, this is a lot better!! ## Will do! Am very hopeful as well. Lot of anxiety during the transition, but I think that's the Effexor getting out of my system. ## I have never taken it, but can provide a little information about it. It contains the active ingredient Vilazodone and it is approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder. Unlike similar medications, it has been shown to help in as little as one week,...

Anyone Experiencing Missed Periods And Slight Weight Gain On Lo Loestrin Fe Birth Control
I have been on this pill since March and only got my period the first month I was on it and it was very light and only lasted a couple of days. haven't gotten it since. I have taken tests...all negative. Any one else experiencing this? ## Since there are hormonal based contraceptive tablets, both of these symptoms can be normal side effects of using the medication. There is really no harm in skipping your menstrual cycle, there are even contraceptives on the market that are specifically designed to let you skip for several months in a row. However, if you are concerned, you should consulted your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## I probably started taking this in April/May. I can't remember exactly. For the first three packs I didn't get a period. On the fourth pack I...

how does oralcon contraceptive pills work?
I have started using oralcon contraceptive pill, I wanna know how they work ## HI, Tshepo! How are you? Oralcon is a hormonal based contraceptive, so they work by adding certain amounts of synthetic estrogen and progesterone to your body to prevent ovulation from occurring each month. That's why you have to take one each day, for 3 weeks until your menstruation week, if you don't, then the drop in hormones may allow ovulation to happen which makes it possible for you to get pregnant. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Do I drink this pills during my menstruation week ## Hi, i would like to know how long it takes for the Oralcon birthcontrol pill to be out of my system / body. ## does oralcon cause abnominal pains? am using oralcon for about 3mnths nw nd i alwyz hv pains ...

Worn cartilage in right knee
Xray shows bone to bone on my right knee. ## Hi Arnie, Sorry to hear about the condition your knee is in. Did your doctor recommend any types of supplements or nutritional regimen to help rebuild the cartilage? According to the MayoClinic, glucosamine is one of the substances that our body's naturally use to build cartilage. Supplements containing glucosamine are also relatively inexpensive at most health food stores, so that may be something worth considering. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is another supplement touted for similar uses as well. But there are a plethora of other alternative options out there if you're willing to experiment for a while until you find out what works best. My theory is that if you continue to give your body the right tools (via vitamins, minerals, and...

name brand vs. generic
I'm unsure of who to believe. I still hear that the generic is not as effective as the brand and I have heard this from some very prominent, famous physicians, however, my pharmacy says that it is the same. What is the real answer? I'm sticking to brand until I hear better. ## I personally have problems with some generics that don't work the same as name brands. I can't trust generic coumadin for instance to be consistant in its strength,My wife has the same problem with generic BC pills, some work O.K. others don't. even though they say they are the same formulary. So in answer to your questions I believe it depends on the individual. ## I tried the generic and it did not work for me. My daughter-in-law tried it and really got messed up with it. Her doctor told her ...
