ASEA dieatary supplement
I AM TAKING A PRODUCT CALLED ASEA it is 190mg of chloride and 123mg of sodium in distilled water. I take 20z. 2x a day. Would taking naltrexone have any interaction with this product? Thank-you, Lynn calderard ## Hello, Lynn! How are you? These are just electrolytes that our bodies need, so there shouldn't be a problem. But it would be best to double check, since supplements aren't actually tested for interactions with prescription medications. Naltrexone is used for opiate and alcohol dependence. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and abdominal cramping. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Given tramadol again....
I recently weened myself off these silly things after taking them for years, I was up to 30 to 40 a day. So I worked with my doc and after 3 months of weening and being clean for a week, first 3 days were hell BTW, I got injured. I went to my same doc and she wrote me a script for.....guess what???? Yepers trams. I am wondering if I will fall backwards in my attempt to be clean if I am able to take them 1 or 2 a day or if I should just throw the script away??? My doc told me I should be just fine and it is on 20 pills but I just don't know..

sandoz bupropion
Hello I was just prescribed 100 mg of bupropion sr twice a day. It's a blue pill that says E410. I was wondering if this pill causes weight gain? ## Hi Ali, How are you? Contrary to what you might be experiencing, the drug monograph for Bupropion only lists "weight loss" as a general side effect, and nothing to do with weight gain in that regard. However digging a little deeper I did notice other individuals post their concerns about having problems with gaining extra weight while they were taking Bupropion. With that said, part of me does wonder if taking this medication may have resulted in certain changes in behavioral/emotional patterns when it comes to eating more or less food throughout the day. The ironic part is that it also lists "loss of appetite" as a pote...

oxycodone in Gulfport, MS
Looking for a doctor who will write oxys first visit near Gulfport MS. 30s or 15s doesn't matter. I have bulging discs and a damaged shoulder from a car accident. My doctor cut me off in Dec 2012. Need help ASAP. Thank you so much. ## Hello, Kahltyler! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. However, due to the new regulations that have been put in place, it isn't very likely that you're going to find a new doctor that will prescribe such a medication on your first visit. Doctors have to be very careful, now, or they risk losing their license to practice medicine, as well as fines and jail time. Thus, most are going to require some recent scans to evaluate your condition and most will also want you to try other treatment options, before resorting to habit formi...

metronidazole 500mg tablet
Will metronidazole 500mg help my boyfriend if he has a UTI ??? We have not been with anyone else so we know it is not a venereal disease but do not know what it is and they want $450.00 co-pay at the hospital. In other words will the metronidazole 500mg take it away if it is a UTI???? ## Hello, Nicole! How is your boyfriend doing? If he is showing symptoms, he needs to see a doctor. It isn't good, nor safe to try to diagnose and treat it yourselves. Metronidazole might not be the right medication to treat his problem. If he goes to the ER, they cannot demand the copay upfront, they have to see him and send him a bill, at a later time. Rather than put his life at risk, that would be the best thing to do, if you don't have a regular doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

sprintec 3 days missed
I forgot to to take the blue active tri-sprintec pills for 3 days. Days Thursday, Friday, Saturday on the first row of pills. On Sunday morning I started bleeding a lot. Should I take 3 on Sunday and take 2 on Monday or start a new pack or just continue the same pack.. And how long should I wait to have intercourse.. I don't know what to do.. please help! please and thank you ## Hello, Diana! How are you? You are at the point where you should just start a new pack and you'll need to wait a full 7 days of taking the active tablets, before having unprotected intercourse, again. That means it will not be safe to do so, until the 8th day. If you have a smart phone, there are apps that you can download, many of them free, that you can set to remind you to take your medications. My fi...

Anxiety, Heart Palpations, My mind won't slow down!
This may be a little long so please bear with me,.. About 6 months ago I started suffering from light headaches. They began later in the afternoon and continued for several months. I'd take Aleve or Motrin and they would subside and all would be okay. Fast forward to the last two months. They have been He** on earth for me. About 2 months ago, I had a series of panic attack in one day. I had just started a new job that I hate and is very stressful for me. I'm trying to change jobs and hope that helps. Anyway, the attacks have become more and more frequent and I have come to a place where I don't even want to leave the house. I have been to my Doctor 3 times and the ER once. I was diagnosed with GAD and Hypertension. My anxiety has gotten a lot worse. Even driving now sends m...

little orange pill with a on one side and 14 other
the pill is light orange round the size of a baby aspirin with A on one side and 14 on the other ## Hello, Tim! How are you? It seems that you've found a generic Suboxone tablet, which is used to help treat drug addiction. It contains 2mgs of Buprenorphine and 0.5mgs of Naloxone, which is added to help prevent the abuse of other narcotics, while someone is being treated with it. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

teva manufacturer adderall coupon
Please send me teva adderall coupons. I am not covered by insurance and I have heard that the results are excellent. My husband and son are both disabled and I have been diagnosised with ADHD, but I can't afford the meds. Please send me coupons if pissible until I can find other resources to help me. Thank you, anything would be greatly appreciated. Kelly Hicks ## Sorry, I also wanted the newsletter. ## Hello, Kelly! How are you? Unfortunately, there are no coupons available for Adderall, at this time, since it is available as a generic, which by its very nature is already cheaper. Have you tried checking prices with your local pharmacies? They may differ from one to the other. But you will need to actually go to the pharmacies, with your prescription in hand. This medication is a s...

If anyone has any info please share... ## Hello, Fina and Nyla! How are you both? Well, unfortunately, we are into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances. There are mandatory manufacturing limits to help keep better track of the supply and once a company reaches that limit, they can not manufacture anymore, until the new year.

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....

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...

cannot fill my prescription for oxycodone 30 in florida
i have tried everywhere in my county that i live in florida, get the same answer from all the walgreens and the pharmacies in my area they are out and dont know when they will have it if ever again. i think this is a shame for a person who has a prescription from a doctor and is in severe pain all waking hours. i think this is also a shame because all it does is gives the drug dealers on the streets a reason to charge $20.00 a pill and laugh at us all the way to their bank. there has got to be some relief for us honest people that are suffering and work hard to have insurance and be up standing citizens. i thank our governor for making this problem worse in florida and feeding right into the drug dealer hands. please can someone help and get the honest people who suffer everyday the rel...
