Muscle spasms in back and numbness infoot
I use to have occasional back muscle spasms about twic a year that would last about 3 or 4 days. I started taking quid for AFib in April. Now I am having severe muscle spasms in my back every 2 weeks and they last up to 8 days. I have also developed numbness in the bottom of my left foot. Can this be caused by the eliquis ## Hello, Dorothy! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, it could be due to the Eliquis, many people taking it have complained about similar issues. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Have you consulted your doctor, yet? Are you on any other medications?

pain management doctor has got me hooked then dismissed me
Can a doctor do that, he got mad at me and refused to talk to me and left me without any pain meds that he has been prescribing for me. Can he do that? ## Hello, Jojo! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about what happened to you. Yes, your doctor can do that. No doctor is obligated to treat you, nor prescribe any medications, unless you're in life threatening danger. I know it sucks, but that is the way the law currently stands. The only thing I can suggest is that you try to find a new doctor. Do you have a PCP that you see regularly that might be able to refer you to someone?

Lunesta for Middle-of-the-night insomnia
I've suffered from MOTN for many years and have used Sonata. I also tried 3mg Lunesta and took it before bed. I know that Lunesta is for use when you have 7-8 available for sleep. I wonder, however, whether I could split a pill down to about 0.5mg and take it when I have 4 hours available for sleep. Thanks ## Hi Jimmy, From what I've researched, Lunesta is supposed to reach its peak concentration about 1 hour after it kicks in and is reported to have an estimated elimination half life of 6 hours. This means that it'll take 6 hours from the time that you took it until half of the dose is no longer working in your body. So my guess is that if you only had 4 hours available you'd still feel it for a couple hours afterwards before "coming down" so to speak. But takin...

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...

VIIbryd as of now has been great!!!
I have suffered from anxiety/depression prob my whole life. I just dealt with it as i did not know much about mental health. I just thought it was life. of course that was not good because its easy to deal when in high school because few to no real responsibilities. Very scary to go to a crowed campus for college with anxiety/depression then you stop going and your parents and peers think its just you and it gets worse etc… I have tried many antidepressants and none have worked or gave me even a feeling of something different except some zombie effects. i just stuck to the typical narcotic medication xanax and adderall. xanax was to help the physical symptoms of my anxiety ex. stiff muscles, just stiff everything, and adderall for the can't think,fatigue etc.. but those medica...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...
