pain management doctors who will prescribe medications around Richmond or Mechanicsville or Ashland VA
15 Replies RSS
I have Sciatica, Spondeliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease and Fibromyalgia in both my hips & legs, I have had 3 sets of nerve blocker injections that did not help. I had a herniated disc, in my lower back, (scar tissue has entrapped nerve in it), intractable back pain, I have been falling a lot at home or if I am out somewhere. I get very confused and short term memory is really getting bad which is a symptom of Fibromyalgia, I don't want to go anywhere, I rarely see my friends. I feel like my feet and legs are running and my body is not catching up. I have also last year had left shoulder surgery for small tear in rotator cuff, bone spurs leaning on rotator cuff, osteoarthritis and fluid around the arthritis, 1 month after this surgery: I have what feels like electricity shocks ...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
700 Replies RSS
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
348 Replies RSS
I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I bought some oxycontin 40 mg. to see if they could replace my 4 mg. Dilaudid. However, I did 1/2 of a 40 mg. and I felt nothing. An hour later I did my 4 mg. Dilaudid and really felt it. But they are very short lived, that's why for cronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered off of Dilaudid?...

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...

can I stop Xarelto
2 Replies RSS
I have been on Xarelto for a little over 6 months after a PE. My doctor said sonograms show negative for any more blood clots in legs and follow up contrast ct shows clear and blood tests show no markers for predisposition for blood clots, I am 50 with no atrial defeib good blood pressure and strong heart although I am obese, I am afraid doctor wants to keep me on the drug, because of course it is the safe thing to do, what should I do? ## Hello, Dave! How are you? Have you discussed it with your doctor? Many people do just take it for a short period of time, until they are in the clear, then they are able to stop taking it. Are you have any problems with it, such as the side effects, that may include nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches? Tapering it, with your doctor'...

yanhee diet pills
1 Reply RSS
Can anyone tell me if they have used yanhee diet pills and if so, what were the results? ## Hello, SlayGal! How are you? From what I've been able to find, this product is listed as containing the active ingredient Phentermine, which the FDA classifies as an appetite suppressant. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, elevated blood pressure and elevated heart rate. Due to the possibly risks associated with those elevations, it should not be taken without your doctor's approval and supervision. Is there anything else I can help with?

Can You Chew Ibuprofen?
11 Replies RSS
I chewed ibuprofen and it made my mouth burn and now my stomach isnt feeling very good. was it bad for me to chew it instead of swollow it? ## Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and these are well known to cause irritation and/or damage to the delicate lining of the mouth, stomach and esophagus. That's why they are distributed as coated tablets and the instructions usually direct you to swallow them whole and not to crush or chew them. So, yes, it was a bad idea. Even with the coating on them, NSAIDs can cause or irritate conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Are there any other questions? ## i chew it and i didnt hurt me, is it different for other people or somethin? my headaches go away faster... ## i can't swallow pills, so, i chewed up an ibup...

Im taking lyrica for a pinched nerve in my shoulder after starting it how long before should start working
1 Reply RSS
Should lyrica start working straight away I have been on it for 3 days and still in a huge amount of pain. The pain is in my shoulder and down my left arm. ## Hello, Nett! How are you? No, Lyrica is not actually an analgesic, so it doesn't work that fast. It is classified by the FDA as an anticonvulsant, which can also help with certain types of nerve pain. Thus, it takes about 4 to 6 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in the body and for you to know if it's going to work for you. Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

How to taper off Lyrica
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Pregabalin for 15 months at 150 mg daily. I had my hip replaced two months ago and no longer need the meds. How do I taper off, step by step, so as to minimize side effects? ## Lyrica is quite easy to come off. Your Dr could prescribe a lower dose for two weeks or what I did was drop one pill a day for two weeks, then two pills a day for two weeks and so on. I had a bit of a headache but no problem. ## Hello, Rod! How are you? And thanks to Eunie for your helpful response. One caution I would like to add is to please do not stop this medication cold turkey, since it is an anticonvulsant, though it also helps with nerve pain, a sudden withdrawal could cause seizures. Typical side effects to this medication, as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, mood swin...
