Plavix and Leukemia
Is there a connection? My husband received 2 stents, one in October 2008 and a medicated one in November 2008. He was then placed on Plavix. In November 2009 he was diagnosed with AML leukemia, he passed away 6/2010 at the age of 56. There was no obvious reason for him to get leukemia, it is rare for someone that young to have AML. We know that his heart disease was genetic. He was very health conscious, always ate healthy, exercised and was in great physical condition. I have read little tidbits about Plavix causing bone marrow damage and am wondering if there are other Plavix patients that have or had Leukemia. Thanks, Chris ## There have been very rare cases of Leukemia reported in people using Plavix, however, the percent of occurrence has been less than 1%, so there has never been ...

Here is no BS guide to Fentanyl withdrawals
My story is like most of yours-I was put on the patch, the dosage was increased, after five years I am in remission and wanted off. I titrated down to 13mcg and made the jump. I have been in some state of withdrawal from 50mcg to now, one month being patch free. My doctor said it could be months before it ends. This drug saved my life then took it way again but in a different context. I am going to cover withdrawals but in short doses. It should only be used for end stage. If for chronic, only for the least time possible I found this and wanted to share it. The worse of the withdrawals is the feeling you have to move, jerk, etc. There is a medical term for it, Read on. .Akathisia, or acathisia (from Greek καθζειν kathízein - "to sit", a- indi

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 ...

generic 10mg oxycodone IR KVK brand. Any info about known quality of this med compared to other generics?
I have seen so many different opinions and information about companies offering generic oxycodone and the differences in strength, and quality over other generic brands. I have also heard that the FDA allows from 12% to 20% variances in the active ingredient (oxycodone) in their pills. Which if i am understanding this correctly, they can be + or - 12 to 20% of the actual amount of oxycodone per tablet? Can someone with the expertise or knowledge (like a pharmacist or a doctor) explain this to us who have heard this and don't understand? I personally suffer with chronic pain from a construction accident 20 yrs ago in which my back was broken in 7 places along with a lot of muscle and nerve damage which has left me on disability and in chronic pain after 4 surgeries and 7 levels of my...

blue diamond shaped pill
found a bluediamond shape pill nowt on it dont know what itis ## If there is nothing on it, it is going to be very difficult to narrow down what this is. We can rule it out as being a U.S. prescription medication, since they all have to have markings to enable their ID. However, it could be any one of a large number of over the counter items or even a foreign medication. Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? ## I just found two of the same pills in a bag on the floor at my store. I work at a dollar general in elyria ohio. ## It was found in the U.S., Florida to be exact. ## what you found is the same thing as vigra, it is made in india ## I found my husband with Blueish green diamond shaped pills no lettering on either side.

Suboxone and Oxycodone Rx
Hello, I have been taking Suboxone for approximately 3 weeks. I was taking opiates, legally, for four+ years but recently I had problems after surgery by increasing my dosages and eventually running out quite often which lead all my doctors to a rehab place. I went through 3 weeks of Intensive Outpatient Treatment which was complete crap but it kept me busy during the morning. I now have an Rx from my PCP who KNOWS about me being on Suboxone and said to stop the Suboxone for a couple/few days and then start the Oxy's. Here's my question: Can I fill the Rx for OxyIR when I'm going to be picking up my most recent Rx of Suboxone tomorrow? I feel like the pharmacy might be thinking it's Doctor Shopping but if they call my PCP, he knows about the Suboxone use. He desperately ...

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. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

find a doctor that easily prescribes Xanax and adderall
I am going back to school in two days and am in desperate need of something to help me focus. Because of this problem, I ended up dropping out of this school a few years ago. Also I have major anxiety. I worry about everything, no matter how minuscule, have trouble sleeping because my mind is always racing. When I get super upset, I hyperventilate and feel like I can't breathe. ## Your mind could be racing because of the Adderall. Drugs like Xanax do not help you "focus" and is not a true sleep aid. Your best bet would be to stay off both? ## Hi, Melissa! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, without knowing your general location, it's difficult for anyone to try to make any recommendations for a doctor that may help. Can you please post back and give...

haldon
for alhemzmers spelled wrong ## For the past few months, the assisted living center my Aunt was staying in in NY was treating her with Haldon. Last week we moved her to an assisted living center in Atlanta so she would be closer to family. The new assisted living center thinks Haldon is too strong and wants to switch her to another drug. Does anybody have any experience with a Haldon substitute? If so, was it successful and what was it? Many thanks! ## Are you referring to the medication Haldol? If so, then yes, there are other options available, please speak to her doctors. ## Respridone is pretty close to haldon as my doctor tells me I was on resperidone for about 4 months with great results but my iinsurance ran out and can no longer afford the drug so my doctor put me on haldon goin...
