Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

tramadol after August 18??
Hearing lots of places that the people who order tramadol via internet will no longer be able to. I live in a town with uptight doctors who charge outrageous prices plus insist on doing constant testing before writing a prescription. If true what are my option after Aug 18 ## i wish i had an answer for you, i have been using it for 3 years, more as a anti-depressant. I take 200 mg a day and feel good, certainly not intoxicated. This decision by FDA is ridiculous. Tramadol is not in the same class as Percs and Roxys etc. Unbelievable. I can go to Dr but i will be spending mad $ on their BS. Prices in the international market will now be inflated as well. The market is risky unless you know credible sources. ## Tramadol will become a Controlled Substancde Schedule IV in Aug. But, Schedule...

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Throat Infection And Fever Body Pain
FOR TWO DAYS THROAT INFECTION AND FEVER BODY PAIN ## Have you seen a doctor for this? There are several things that can cause such problems and if it is an infection, you will more than likely require an antibiotic, which can only be prescribed by a doctor. Such symptoms could be cause by the flu virus, in which case, it is not an infection and, while you can treat the symptoms, it just has to run its course. ## suffering from throat pain, body pain ## Lots of possibilities. Ask yourself these questions: Have you been around anyone with similar symptoms within 3-7 days; are you immunocompromised due to any medications and/or illness; have you or are you willing to they otc remedies such as Nyquil, dayquil, Advil cold and sinus, etc; are you prone to allergies (the time for pollen and ot...

Where To Purchase Paregoric
I've used Paregoric for 15 years and can't find it. Is there anywhere in the U.S. or other countries where this can be purchased? ## I have been on paregoric therapy for at least 18 years myself. (not to mention Sandostatin, Lomotil & Pamine) Have had occasions the past few years when it was not available, and now I am told the manufacturer has discontinued it. (royal pain) so Dr has now RXd tincture of opium - much less to take, but the stuff tastes like cat s**t (not that I ever tasted cat s**t) - I was hoping to find paregoric again, maybe from Canada - I'm still looking - let me know if ya wanna chat more & / or if you find a source. Would be nice to get out of the house again! Thanks bud - Jim ## Thanks for your reply. I called Canada, and they don't have it...

Metformin Hcl 500 Mg Side Effects
can i use tab.Metformin for weight reduction? i wanted to know the side effects of Metformin ## I wouldn't count on using an anti-diabetic drug for weight loss. Your best bet is a healthy change in eating habits and regular exercise. A pill won't lose the weight for you. Sorry to sound blunt, but it would be ignorant to think otherwise. As far as side effects go...the most common adverse effect of metformin is gastrointestinal upset, including diarrhea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and increased flatulence; metformin is more commonly associated with gastrointestinal side-effects than most other anti-diabetic drugs. The most serious potential side-effect of metformin use is lactic acidosis; this complication is very rare, and the vast majority of these cases seem to be related to com...

dilaudid / 170 mg of methadone
I have 4 mg of dilaudid but in on about 170mg of methadone, I recently feel and sprained my elbow and was wondering if this will take away the pain, or will I be taking it for no reason ## Hi Joanna from RI, because u r on such a high dose of methadone, taking the 4mg of Dilaudid will probably defeat the purpose. I wouldn't recommend taking the Dilaudid. You probably wouldn't get any effect from it anyway. But, I wouldn't mix the 2. I'm sorry 2 hear about your pain, I suffer everyday with pain. But, I'm on suboxone. Use 2 b on methadone, which helped much more with pain. But, I switched 2 suboxone. What a dumb move I made. I'm also from RI. Good Luck! ## No dilaidid is on of those meds that work great on pain while takeing methadone i was on very high doses of me...

Suboxone Doctors on Long Island
Suboxone Doctors on Long Island,NY that take HIP/Medicaid. Trying to find one ASAP. ## I'm sorry, there's really no central listing that I know of that lets you know what doctors treat with Suboxone and take any certain insurance. Learn more Suboxone details here. I'd suggest contacting HIP/Medicaid and asking if they have any information that can help you, or you can try the Suboxone.com website to find doctors in your area, then contact them to see what insurance they accept. Does anyone else know of one? ## Hi... I know of a doctor in glen cove..and he did take hip/medicaid bc that's what I had and he did prescribe suboxone from what I know. You can email me at {edited for privacy} for more info...I'm looking for help myself lol ## Hey can you help me out at all? ...
