dolo 650 for fever
duration between one dose to another dose in heigh fever like 102 and 103 ## I'm sorry, is Dolo an abbreviation for something? What country is it from? I am not familiar with anything under this name, does anyone know what this is? ## DOLO-650 is reported to contain Paracetamol 650 mg (also known as Acetaminophen). This is a widely used over-the-counter analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). For adults, the typical maximum dosage of this medication is 4,000 mg per day - however, it is always important to follow instructions on the packaging and from your doctor!

Directions on taking Pliva 434 for insomnia
Does this pill work immediately as u take it or do u have to take it on a regular nightly bases to get the drug in ur system to work for ur insomnia ## Hello, JJ! How are you? This tablet contains 100mgs of Trazodone, which is actually an antidepressant that causes drowsiness as a side effect. It will work the first time you take it, in most cases and not need any time to reach efficacy levels, since the drowsiness is a side effect. You may also experience dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## weight changes what kind up or down

metoprolol withdrawal
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

doctors that prescribe anxiety medication and muscle relaxers
I have a chronic pain condition which is Interstitial cystitis (IC) I will not take oxycodone because I was on it for 4 years and it worked great for my pain but I had to keep upping the dosage and became addicted. So now I am on a different pain medication called the Butrans patch and even though it doesn't help as much as I would like it to, it helps with my daily life. So I am able to still do normal daily things. I also have back pain, I am not sure what it is from but the patch does nothing for that either. I am looking for a doctor who would have no problem prescribing me Zanaflex. I tried it once before and it helped tremendously (along with the patch). My other problem is anxiety, my doctor was prescribing me 2mg xanax twice daily. (My mother went into the appointment and ba...

Watson 853 White or Yellow Pill
I've been taking the Watson 853 yellow hydro /acetaminophen for several years. I get them from a well known pharmacy company. My most recent script was filled and I noticed the color was white, even though the markings of Watson 853 are identical to the light yellow pill. There was a huge difference in side effects with the new pill; constipation, dry mouth, and a little nasal congestion that I typically get from preservatives like sulfites. Many people get these symptoms when taking narcotics, but I have been fortunate with the hydrocodone as it has never affected me that way (oxycodone does however) I called the pharmacist and he said he couldn't get the yellow tabs anymore but wouldn't say one way or the other whether the formulation or fillers in the white pill differ fr...

Amneal oxycodone (generic percocet) 10 325
Amneal's oxycodone, generic for percocet 10/325 is white, oblong, blank on one side, and imprinted with IP 204 (not IP 203)! I usually take Watson or Mallinckrodt, 10/325, (2) tablets every 4-6 hours (240 monthly), but I was given Amneal today when filling my script, and I am not happy! I have cancer, and I also take morphine sulphate 30 mgs as well (1 every 12 hours), and Fioricet with Codeine for severe migraines (as needed)! I do not feel Amneal is sufficient or even close to the chemical makeup as Watson or Mallinckrodt for controlling pain/chronic pain! Amneal does not act the same way on my body, and I should not have to take more for same result! I think when you pay cash for your medications, and have been on the medication for 8 years, using the same pharmacy, they should o...

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.

drugs to increase my weight
I'm 23 year old female weighing 36 kgs , height is 4" I want to gain weight I've had no health problems ## Hi amanita, If you need assistance gaining weight in a healthy way, I think (from my own experience) that your best bet would probably be to focus on eating enough nutrient dense calories to from protein, carb, and fat sources together to make more wholesome meals. But if you have a hard time consuming more calories in one sitting, you can also choose to eat smaller portions more frequently throughout the day and/or rely on high calorie shakes in between meals. I've tried various approaches myself and those are just a couple examples that worked for me in the past. However, I'd still encourage you to speak with a dietician for that one-on-one personal assistance...

pain management shreveport
Does anyone know of any primary care physicians in the Shreveport/Bossier City/Haughton/Minden area that do pain management? I have been going to a pain management doctor here in Shreveport for about 6 years now, but it is just getting to expensive. He refuses to to go any higher on my dosage of Oxycontin, which is 30 mg 3 times a day. And he will not give me anything for break through pain. I am on Medicaid so I have to pay him out of pocket. Medicaid pays for 60 of my oxy's, but I have to pay for the other 30. If I knew of a primary care physician that accepts does some pain management and also accepts medicaid it would be a really big help. I'd really appreciate anyone that could help me out and answer this. Thank you. ## There aren't any PCP's who do Pain Management ...

I have been on 50 mcg of levothyroxine for 5 months and I have gained 15 pounds. My doctor tells me that it should be the opposite and that I should loose weight. Is this possible? Have any of you taking this drug has experienced the same? ## I was on 50mg for about 2 weeks and noticed I had gained 10 pounds. So I stopped taking it and gained another 15lbs. now my test showed me to be 5.9 and my new doctor put me on 15mg.

I want to know about Fal New Tablet. plz inform me. ## Hi saiful, How are you? From what I could gather, Folnew softgels reportedly contain folic acid as the primary ingredient; which they market for use in treating folate-deficiency anemia.
