Discontinuation of Deseril
110 Replies RSS
I have been taking Methysergide (Deseril) for 14 years as a preventative for migraines. It is the ONLY drug which works for me and I am devastated by the news that it has been discontinued. I am keen to try to find a source for some even if it is only to get me over the next 8-9 months when I still have to have three weekly infusions of Herceptin for the treatment of breast cancer. Herceptin gives me more headaches as one of its side effects so I really need my Deserils! Can any one help or if not is anyone in the same boat? Maybe not the Herceptin bit! ## Hi Rufabug, Sorry to hear about the headaches you've been experiencing lately. While it is true that the manufacturer Novartis withdrew it from the U.S. market after taking over Sandoz, I'm not sure what the case might be rega...

how much stronger is morphine 60 than a norco 10
3 Replies RSS
How much stronger is a morphine 60 than a Norco 10 and how many norcos would it take to equal 1 ## Hello, Smeagle! How are you? Morphine and Hydrocodone actually convert on a 1 to 1 ratio, so to equal 60mgs of Morphine, you'd need 60mgs of Hydrocodone. However, you can't take that many, due to the Acetaminophen in them. The limit for that is 3,000mgs daily, as set by the FDA. Exceeding that could result in fatal overdose toxicity. 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. Have you been switched from one to the other, or are you trying to switch yourself? ## Omg really for one thing they only make7.5 norcos not 750 that would be the acetaminophen and meth...

I have caught cvs and other pharmacies lying about not having oxycodone is stock, shortage 2012
356 Replies RSS
Well today I officially caught a cvs here in Ga lie to me. A friend of mine filled his Meds yesterday. I go in, having a history with cvs, a recent one, and am immediately lied to. The pharmacist comes over and tells me they haven't had them in stock for months, without looking at his book or computer. At this point I stated an employee I know the name of told me shipment came in Thursday. He lied again. I then told him friend had filled yesterday morning. He said it was impossible. I then said I saw the bottle with my own eyes, it had their address on it, and even told him what brand they had since my friend just filled his there. Pharmacist lied to me yet again. I then asked him why he wad lying to me and that I am tired of being treated like a criminal because I am 30 with a hand...

Chronic constipation with 40-50 lbs weight gain... Linzess works with explosive diarrhea within an hour of taking but doesn'tseem to resolve problem. It makes me go from feeling 9 months pregnant to 6 months pregnant. Also have a new side effect of the drug (or the consripation) which is acne on my shoulders and back.

How long does lizness work
2 Replies RSS
I've been taking lizness for almost 2 or 3 weeks.. But when I take it I do have results like a hour or so after but towards the night time I get bloated and can't go to the restroom and urinating even starts to become hard to do. And I also have cramping and pain with bloating towards the end of the day. ## Hello, BRead! How are you? Those can be normal side effects of Linzess, as listed by the FDA and most other users have reported similar experiences. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. However, the problem urinating is concerning and you should consult your doctor about that. Can anyone else that's been on it chime in? ## I too have issues urinating sometime when I take linzess and severe cramping and bloating,dizziness and n...

tw 772 white round pill
1 Reply RSS
Trying to figure out where my friend got these. Any help would be appreciated. ## Hi Steph, I realize that you're wanting to know where these pills were purchased from, but do you have any idea as to what type of medication this is supposed to be? I couldn't find any close matches online using the imprint provided - Let alone any specific details on it's origin. This makes me wonder if it's something made outside of the US, where I'm located... Why isn't your "friend" willing to tell you where they got them from?

Refuse to prescribe
42 Replies RSS
I live in a very small town and the number of doctors here is limited. The number of good doctors is almost nonexistent. I'm finding that calling for an appointment as a new patient the office staff says right away, "We don't prescribe pain meds"! Also have heard "We don't take fibromyalgia patients"! This is said before I ever state what I need to be seen for. Assuming I did have pain, do I no longer have the right to have my pain relieved? I'm so offended by this. If you have chronic pain you are treated like a leper. Apparently it is automatically assumed you have a drug problem. Going to other towns is the same. No wonder people self medicate. Is this happening all over the country? ## Unfortunately yes, it is. Many people, all over the country, are h...

When I just posted the ms contin is 100 mgs. a day 2 15mg. ir which the ir I can't even tell the difference ## We have many complaints on here about them not working as well and causing odd side effects. If it were me, I'd print some of the pages and take them in to show my doctor that I am not the only one with a problem with them. Here are the links to just some of the discussions on our site about it: As to the problems you have had with the new formulation, I strongly suggest you report it to the FDA and Purdue at the following numbers: Purdue Pharma number for drug safety/medication issues: 888.726.7535 FDA MedWatch number: 800-332-1088 The strongest medication for pain that is currently available by prescription is Fentanyl, it is actually over 80 time stronger than Morp...

Effexor XR to Wellbutrin and Pristiq
8 Replies RSS
Due to weight gain and dwindle effect, my doctor switched my anti-depressant from Effexor XR. He told me to stop the Effexor XR immediately and start the Wellbutrin XL. He said to take the Wellbutrin XL for one week then start the Pristiq. FOr those of you who have stopped Effexor you probably know what I'm going to say next. It started with dizziness, rhythmic pulsating in my head, nausea and generally feeling like a slug. It's like my brain had a severe case of the flu. It was horrible. Now, I'm having with the dizziness and throbbing in my head, what feels like a hot flash but my face gets flushed and very hot. I feel as though I want to throw up. I called the doctor and stopped the Wellbutrin right away after about 3 days. I also called the pharmacist and he told me to t...

long white xanax pill g3722
1 Reply RSS
The g should b capitalized G3722. I've seen a few fake ones, made by those single pill presses that have all of the bars shaped xanax imprints and ive been screwed once or twice. Never seen colored green/yellow bars that weren't real tho or the football oval shaped ones. Hope i helped. ## Thanks for the heads up Head! No pun intended LOL. I just wanted to make a note to other readers about the idea of receiving fake xanax tablets in general - Patients who fill their prescription at a licensed pharmacy shouldn't ever have to worry about counterfeits such as the long white g3722 pill being described above. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the information presented here is primarily intended for those who go get their medication through other means... Having sa...
