Klonopin brand name
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...

eye floaters concerned.
I have a lot of eye floaters and I'm only 15, I started wearing glasses 8 years ago. I have a lot of them. There are ones that look like cobweebs, giant gray strands and the clumped floaters. They are not that bad to block my vision. It's just it's really scary. I've read somewhere on the internet that my eye floaters are benign (I've diagnosed myself which is stupid) Also maybe the reason I have these giant grey floaters is because some floaters are close the retina. I've also read about vitreous syneresis which is harmless. No ,I have not experienced flashes of light. These floaters have been around for over a month now with no change.I am a hypochondriac so I'm afraid I'm having a retinal detachment or PVD or something. I'm very scared but I'm try

Weight gain on Pristiq??
I have been on Pristiq now since November of 2008...not quite 5 months...and I have put on 15 lbs since starting it. DESPITE working out with a trainer at the gym twice a week weight training, 3 days a week of cardio AND counting calories. My doc assured me that I would also have a decreased appetite on Pristiq, which I have yet to find true...so he has now increased my dosage to 400 mg. Does anyone have anything to add to this?? I'm just frustrated! ## i was switched to pristiq a few months ago and just recently wellbutrin was added - i take 1 of each pill per day - it has done nothing to me in gaining weight - i am continuously losing but i have some emtional things going on right now which i believe the weight loss is contributed too - unfortunately i have run into many that have...

Hydrocodone strength
What is stronger of the two 10/325 or 7.5/750 Hydrocodone ## 10/325 stronger more hydrocodone with 10 mg per pill and only 325ancetametaphen were as the 7.5mg 750 is only 7.5 mg of hydrocodne the hydrocodone is the prescription the 750 and 325 is just the over the count tylonal I awful at spelling. Spell check makes you dumb but I hope this helps ## That is mostly correct, however, you cannot buy Acetaminophen over the counter in higher than 500mgs, which would be Extra Strength Tylenol. But the smaller numbers do refer to the Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic pain reliever, so the higher the number, the higher the dosage and the stronger the medication. The maximum you can get of it in the US is 10mgs. The common name brands for this are Lortab and Vicodin. Common side effects may inclu...

Is 3 Days Of Suboxone Enough for a mild percocet 30 mg eight month addiction
I have been takin only up to 30 mg of percocet a day for the past eight months, I know that don't sound like a lot but I tried to quit and couldn't handle the withdrawals so I bought five suboxone 2mg and I'm wondering how I should go about treating myself, I want to be done with this, my life has turned upside down. Please help ## In reality, Suboxone is probably far too strong of a medication to be used for this, it is generally only used for people with severe addiction problems, that have been doing drugs and steadily increasing the amounts of them that they've been using for years. Doctors are also specially trained in the use of Suboxone, because the initial dosage has to be carefully calculated, to prevent withdrawals and then slowly tapered, over time, to enable ...

can i take keflex if m allergic to penicillin
My doctor gave me keflex, I received the generic drug for it. When I was 5 or 6 I had a severe allergic reaction to penicillin...trouble breathing and hives and my parents had to take me to ER. I think I've used keflex before but I'm not sure. Just want to make sure it's ok. Should I take it and have a reaction, would I be proactive by having benedryl nearby? Thank you!

lauderdale doctors who will prescribe pain medication
I need a Fort Lauderdale or Boca Raton Florida pain doctor. My doctor turned out to to be skirting the law and is currently under investigation. When he became tipped off of the investigation the doctor who for six years had been treating me out of the blue started a detox not only on me but also with his other pain patients. This occurred two weeks after my mom lossed her battle of (6) years from Alzheimer's. He never told me why this was occurring. I was so upset by loosing my best friend that I had let my guard down with this doctor. A non - doctor who owned both the doctors office and the pharmacy where I received my prescriptions fedex'ed to my home the next day after I had seen this doctor. I naively bought the pitch by the owner that having my medications dispensed thru his

Mylan Mirtazapine does not work
Has any one else experienced this? I had to start using the Mylan version of Remeron / Mirtazapine and I now get sever leg cramps, headaches and the return of my depression. It’s as though it has NO active ingredient in it. The name brand Remeron puts me to sleep about 15 min after taking it, but the Mylan generic for of Remeron/Mirtazapine does not. I stay awake for hours. I can not afford the name brand remeron at $187.00 a month but I am to afraid if I try to use the Mylan version again the worse will happen. I am kind of between a rock and a hard place over this. But I have switched back and fourth enough times now that I know the Mylan version does not work. I get this from Walgreen’s in IL and I am looking for similar problems. Walgreen’s tell me they will not ca...
