knoxville/suboxone clinics
Does anyone know of a suboxone doctor that takes insurance . I work and have insurance . I really need help before I lose my job ## Hello, Lizawood! How are you? You can check the website Suboxone.com click here to look for doctors in your area. It also includes their contact information, so you can call and see if they accept your insurance and are taking new patients. This is a narcotic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Have you tried Active Pain Treatment (865) 246-0143. If you go you will be the only insured person than myself going. Expect to go into big time sticker shock, we have BC/BS, and it ran in the thousands. Over $1,000 for 16...

Pain doctor in Florida that will take me?
Ok. I am at my end and trying to find someone who knows a dr that will take a new patient. I have herniated discs in my neck that pinch a nerve and create horrible pain and burning in my hands. I have 2 small children and work in a career that requires me to use my hands and back 90% of the time. I've had to stop working because of this and I'm at my wits end with all of this. I'm currently seeing our family dr who has been prescribing me 10/325 percocets. She referred me to a pain dr and he wouldn't take me as a new patient. I am so frustrated. I know there has been a really big issue with narcotics and pill mills and all of that. I would just like to know if anyone knows a dr that is willing to write narcotic prescriptions. I have been to physical therapy and I don...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

generic morphine sulfate/ Mylan brand
Please help me find out if there are other patients taking MS by Mylan, that are not happy with this brand. It does not help as well as others. Does not last long enough. Help? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? What are the markings on it? Sometimes the manufacturer listed on the label is just a licensed distributor and not the company that actually made the pills. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## Verwon... in answer to your question....Big M on one side...100/MS on other. Grey pill. Mylan Manufactuer ## I got along just fine with the Mylan brand. Seemed to be more potent, and get rid of the nasty pain a lot better than other generics out there. Mallinck...

does ms contin's generic form Morphine Sul have ?
A friend of mine recently told me that she had been prescribed 30mg of MS Contin but opted for the generic Morphine Sul as it was cheaper and was the same as MS Contin but while researching the above med she found that this med also contained both morphine and oxycodone . This didn't make sense to me because if any combination of meds would or could be found in the name brand or generic wouldn't it be more likely that it would be morphine and oxycontin since the name brand does have the word Contin in it ? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated . ## Your friend's information is incorrect. MS Contin contains solely the narcotic Morphine in a time released formulation, the generics are the same. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming a...

finding a pharmacy in las vegas with norco 10 325 stock
Where can i get my prescription norco 10/325 filled in las vegas nevada? ## having trouble finding a pharmacy that has NorCo in stock ## Got me, CVS has been sitting on my Rx for 1 week. Can't or won't say when it gets in also may not get 7.5mg/325's ## I'm sorry that you are all having a problem getting your prescriptions filled. On top of all the other changes that happened this year, we are also now into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a company has manufactured their allowed amount of the year, they must cease production until the new year. So far, I've not known of a single year where demand hasn't exceeded the supply and a shortage happened the last few months of th...

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...

gabapentin 600 mg half discard
I had initially broken tablets in half and then read instructions to take at next dose or asap or throw away. I am afraid I jumped the gun in breaking them. Are these half pills less effective? Is there a danger? I have this need to know why discard. ## Yes, they do need to be used within a couple days of splitting them, they tend to lose effectiveness very fast, thus you do need to dispose of them. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a new prescription for gabapentin 600 mg R 636, i need to know if these are time release so i can get these changed due to my job requirements, thanks

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

Norco Shortage in Pharmacies in Michigan (November, 2014)
I have a fractured rib and chronic lower back pain and have been on Norco for a year (7.5-325). I have been switched to Tramadol since this recent shortage. I have not been able to find any pharmacy in the Detroit area that can fill my Norco prescription. I have read that it has been gone to a controlled substance level II, and that they had to relabel everything. I called the manufacturers, and they said that they had relabeled everything, so that wasn't the issue. Then I was told that the pharmacies have to do a ton of paperwork to receive it now. Each pharmacy says they keep ordering, and they keep not getting in shipments. I am really just wondering if anyone knows when pharmacies will be back in stock (or if anyone knows of a particular pharmacy in the detroit area that carries...

vicodine
i had both rotor cuffs removed 4 yrs ago been on 750 vicodine would like to get off of them will ultram help ## I really don't think that Ultram will help. The reason for this is because it contains the active ingredient Tramadol. While Tramadol is listed as just a centrally active analgesic, this has changed several times and been under severe debate. When it was being investigate, the developers were trying to create a medication that would work like a narcotic, but not have the side effects and the addictive nature, however, what they achieved was actually the opposite. It is nowhere near as effective as narcotic, yet can still cause the same side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation, plus it still has the propensity to cause abuse and addiction. Theref...
