Taking Suboxone Film while pregnant
7 Replies RSS
I'v been on Suboxone Film,8mg,for a year. Before switching to film,I was taking subutex tablets,8 mg, 3 years.Every time i'v tapered down to quit, I'v failed. I cant handle the endless hell of w/d symptoms. The last time I tapered off, 4 weeks later I was still sick as hell. So I deciced long-term maintenance was best. I didnt plan on getting pregnant, but now that i am, i need to take care of my body. Considering the agony I go thru w/d, I hoped I would get the go ahead for a dr. to stay on the med, perhaps in a smaller dose,(4mg a day). Has anyone gone thru a similar situation? ## Well, stopping completely and going through withdrawals is generally not recommended, because it may actually cause a miscarriage. The problem, however, is that the safety of the Buprenorphine be...

Oramorph 10 Mg And Tramadol 100mg
3 Replies RSS
on oramorph 10mg 4 times a day and tramadol 100mg 4 times a day still in pain are they cancelling each other out ## No, I was othe same recently and they will be augmenting each other not cancelli out. If you are still in pain, speak to your doctor about upping your morphine (you've already maxed the tramadol there) I'm on 30mg plus 100mg tramadol which is controlling my pain much better. ## How long have you been taking them? As George said, they shouldn't be canceling each other out, but it may be time for a dosage adjustment. There's also the possibility that one, or both just aren't the right medications to help you and you may need to try different ones. There is also an extended release Tramadol that is available in 200 and 300mg doses. ## If a may suggest perh...

Oramorph overdose
1 Reply RSS
Would you consider a 20mg dose of Oramorph (a first dose) to be excessive, in a 93 year old person with a history of many medical problems, including COPD? The person had never been given it before, and was given 90mg in 9 hours, when it was then necessary to administer Naxolone. It was given for stomach pain. What could be the possible outcome of this dose? ## Yes its excessive 2.5mg more usual and even then used in caution with elderly esp with copd. Naloxene given to remove morphine from system almost instantly so its simple conclusion. I'm a ex nurse currently on large doses of morphine and have been given naloxene following of so consider myself fairly informed

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression
137 Replies RSS
I am wondering if anybody else out there has taken Hydrocodone and noticed that symptoms of depression are alleviated? I find that many of today's anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs come with unpleasant side effects, whereas while taking Hydrocodone they aren't there. The caveat to all of this is that yes, I know that Hydrocodone and opiates in general can be addictive. So long term use would result in withdrawal symptoms. I'm just wondering who else might agree with my on this? ## I have taken dozens of antidepressants as well as been prescribed antipsycotics and other meds for off-label usage, and nothing has worked effectively over the past 15 years. I will take hydrocodone for a chronic pain condition, and, YES, oh my goodness, YES, it seems to make me immune to a dep...

bendictine
551 Replies RSS
I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

teeth problems after taking prolia

I took Prolia two months ago. I am developing loose teeth and sore spots on my gums. Have others experienced similar problems after taking Prolia? I go to the dentist regularly and have had no dental problems for several years.

Rashes from Tecfidera
2 Replies RSS
I have been have been having this dry skin rash that started on one breast first, then it move to my back then to my chest just below my chin. The chest rash is much worse than the others. Went to doc and got a cortisone shot which did nothing for it. There are no creams that help either. This is going to scar my chest and need some help. Anyone have any ideas? ## That can be a fairly common side effect of Tecfidera, along with flushing and stomach problems. Have you tried consulting a dermatologist? Or maybe trying a prescription cream from your doctor? They may help more. Has anyone else experienced this issue? ## Yes...I had the exact expierience m. I couldn't figure out what it was from. I even had a biopsy.
