what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function.

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
my Dr prescribed Opana 40mg as alternative to Oxy 80 mg 2 twice a day which I would insufflate - I didn't tell him this of course. he claimed them to be just as good if not stronger can any one share about opana 40mg ## Inhaling medications that are not intended for that method of usage is very dangerous. You run the risk of overdose and creating blockages in your lungs, which can lead to breathing problems, embolisms and stroke. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, this is a potent narcotic pain reliever. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. THis dosage is about the same as what you were taking of the Oxycontin. Do you have any other questions? ## i was taking three oc 40's a day, when the new op 40's came out they seemed to...

xanax in nacogdoches tx
I'm diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder. I've moved and don't have insurance or money to go from dr to dr I need a doctor who will prescribe xanax in or near nacogdoches or Lufkin tx. ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## I had a doctor where I used to live bu...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

divalproex 200 mg
My son has taken 250 Depakote twice daily for a while now. The tablets have always been a pinkest/peachy color. The last time we refilled it, the pharmacy gave us tablets that are big and blue. Who makes these and are they the exact same as he has taken all along? ## Hello, Lin! How are you and your son? What are the markings on the tablets? I'm sorry, but I can't tell you anything about them just from the color. This is a generic medication, so it's actually manufactured by several different companies and they can all look different and must have different markings. Can you please post back with this additional information so I can check them for you? Thanks!

i need to find a methadone doctor
I NEED TO FIND A DOCTOR IN NEW JERSEY i can take anythink else ## Hello, Toni! How are you? If you are looking for addiction/maintenance treatment, then a clinic is your only option. Private doctors are not allowed to prescribe ti for that under the current laws. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. If you require it for pain management, then you'll need to see a pain management specialist. Can anyone suggest a good doctor or clinic in NJ?

Sprintec concerns
I've been on Sprintec for 3 months, but I stopped taking them due to hair loss! Anyways, June was my last month on them. It's July & I haven't gotten my period. I'm irregular by the way. Does Sprintec mess up periods after not taking them anymore? ## Hello, Kristy! How are you? Usually, when you take an OC for a few months, your body stops producing the relevant hormones on its own and, once you stop taking it, it can take 3 months or so, for things to return to normal and your body to start producing them, again. So yes, this can happen and is usually nothing to worry about. However, if it continues after a couple months, you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hydroco acetamin 10 325 mg
Hello I am taking Hydroco\aceta 10 325 for knee pains. I had total rt knee replacement 2 yrs ago. Currently I have fever for 3 days. Went to my doc and he gave me levoquin and Motrin 500. Is it safe for me to take this while on Verapamil for high bp ? I only take the Hydro once a day if I need it. ## Hello, Maria! How are you feeling? Is your doctor aware of everything that you take? It is only safe to combine these medications, if they have approved that you do so. How high is your blood pressure? The Motrin may cause some elevation and fluid retention. Levaquin is an antibiotic that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Motrin may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation.
