Problem's with medication
I'm unable to fill Dilaudid 8mg script. I have never had a problem until today. Walgreen's has always taken care of all my meds, I have stage 4 cancer, and it's been the only one I've been on that helps the pain, but doesn't knock me out. And trust me when I say I have tried them all. I'm in Brevard county, and all I have is a little paper, someone please PLEASE HELP me out, I'm 45 and do tied. {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Dra! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. We have reached the time of year when shortages usually occur for controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer has reached their maximum amount, they can not manufacture new product, until the new year. This is a narcotic ana...

atilor 2 no markings
its chalk or drywall dust more like it ## Hi Heather, It sounds to me like you might've gotten a counterfeit. But because there's no easy way to identify something that doesn't show any markings, it may be that you'd have to have the contents analyzed by a lab if you wanted 100% verification. However, from what I could tell, Atilor is reported to be a brand name of Lorazepam that is manufactured/distributed by Cole Pharma (whom is also listed as being a division of Zenlabs Pharmaceuticals Inc). You could try contacting them directly in order to try and retrieve additional information regarding the tablet's legitimacy. They really make you do some serious investigative work to determine these basic details. Did you get this medication from an unlicensed pharmacy or of...

Hi I just started taking this A333 white oblong pill. (Generic Percocet. 10/325). I never had this type before and got it due to pharmacy supply. My question is has anyone noticed a difference in pain relief from other brands. Maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to work as well. Can't wait to hear some other input on this. Thanks. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis (Watson) and yes, there have been quite a few complaints about it recently. Prior to them popping up on here, I was actually not aware of this tablet and just managed to find the information on it. It appears that it must be cheaper than other generics, because more pharmacies are providing it and many people are dissatisfied. Have you consulted your doctor? They may have some idea t...

I am suffering from Annular Disc Bulge, W Disc Dissertation & swelling, also have Cervical Radiculopothy, Foot Drop& Chronic QUAD. Tendonosis,&MS.!!
I had a very unique type of injury happened to mewhen I was in a salon chair and I used the foot stare up as usual to get up as I felt the force and momentum of the chair falling with me towards me on me. I had no choice but to save my face and throw my right forearm and hand up onto the ledge of the station. At the time of the negligence the injury appeared to be located mostly in my neck upper back torn ACL and sprained ankle. Well it turned out that I also had cervical radiculopathy that is adult sharp constant pain. so very unfortunately and traumatising was the death of my daughter six months ago.each individual injury worked into its own monster and then seemed to all come together into a very permanent nerve damage in way also causing poly neuropathy where I had sustained 025 ref...

remeron and qsymia
has anyone taken Qsymia to loss the weight gained by being on Remeron (Mirtazapine)? ## Hello, Basset Gal! How are you? There are two issues here, the first is that it is never a good idea to take another medication to try to treat a side effect that has been caused by a different one. Doing that just tends to compound the side effect problems. And the second issue is that the weight problem will continue, as long you keep taking the Remeron, so you'd just really be trying to fight a losing battle. The best thing to do, if they Remeron has caused you to gain a significant amount of weight would be to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication, such as Prozac, that isn't known to cause weight gain. Side effects to it may include nausea, dizziness, headache and weigh...

Gradually developing negative side effects after 1.5 yrs of use? Cranky, tired, nausea
Here's a question - has anyone experienced a gradual change or development of negative side effects on hydrocodone even if you've been taking it a while? Just a bit of background - I was prescribed hydrocodone 5/325 1-2 tabs for chronic pelvic pain syndrome and dysmenorrhea. I would say I take it about 2-3x a week. Usually 1 1/2 tabs. Have never had to raise my dose since prescribed. In the beginning it would just make me hyper and chatty for 2 or 3 hours, then insomnia if I took it too close to bed time. Could not physically sleep until at least 8 hours after taking it!! But it relieved the pain wonderfully, so those side effects were tolerable. Over the course of the past 6 months or so, this changed. Gradually the hyperness/chattiness tapered down, insomnia from it was gone, ...

loestrin 1/20 not fe
does this cause added weight gain or acne ## Hello, Kris! How are you? Those are both possible side effects of any hormonal contraceptive, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, irregular bleeding and bloating. And please make sure not to miss taking any of the active tablets, because that will increase your risk of pregnancy. Are there any other questions or concerns?

keflex - took an extra dose
I was prescribed Keflex 500 mg - 4 times per day. I meant to grab a pain pill (I'm recovering from an open dislocation) and accidentally took a second dose of the Keflex instead. Should I be concerned? ## Never mind. I skipped the dose the next am & was blessed to not have any side effects. :-) ## Hello, Amy! How are you? It was actually worse to skip your next dose than it was to have doubled up on the one. Doubling up isn't really dangerous, since this is just an antibiotic and might just cause you to experience more side effects, such as nausea, dizziness and diarrhea than usual. But skipping a dose gives the bacteria a chance to repopulate and possibly develop antibiotic resistance. I know you can't change what's happened, but I wanted you to know for future refe...

i have yeast on my foot, blisters, pus,skin peeling foul oder will this help me? ## Hello, Niesha! How are you? Yes, Terbinafine is an antifungal medication. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, indigestion, headaches and vertigo. However, you should only take it, if your doctor has confirmed that you have a yeast infection and that is the appropriate medication for you. There are other problems that could also cause these types of symptoms and this isn't the appropriate medication for all and could even worsen some. Is there anything else I can help with?

Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste.

xanax blue pill oval 605
So I got some of these Xanax. Where I'm from we call them footballs. I recently started taking hydrocodone and now have been having withdrawals without them. Do you think these footballs will help me quit hydrocodone? I've never had withdrawals from Xanax in all my years of taking them. I definitely don't want the withdrawals from the norcos tho and I'd like to quit ASAP considering that I've only been taking them for about a month. Different kinds of course the white 365 & 367, the yellow 10s, and now the white with red dots. The white with red dots really cause me to withdraw. ## I was given Norco for my Car accident and did experience withdrawal problems. I was down to one a day, then a half a day and still experienced discomfort. Xanax on the other hand has t...

whats shelf life of carbi levodopa 25 100
what is the shelf like of carbi/levodopa 25/100 arlene ## Hello, Arlene! How are you? If they are in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, tablets expire one year from the date they were dispensed to you, because they are then exposed to the elements that cause degradation. If they are in the originally factory sealed bottle, they are usually good for at least 3 years, from the date of sealing. This medication is most commonly used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, hypotension and vivid dreams. Is there anything else I can help with?

height increase tablet name or supplement
my name is ajay ,I m 24years old ,my height 5.5, I want 6 inches increase please send me advice,pills,supplements without side effect ## Hello, Ajay! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no way to increase your height. You are now past your growth phase, so there is no way to change it. If you'd tried, before you were an adult, making sure you get the proper nutrition and taking some growth factors can help assure that you reach your full potential height, but even that won't make you grow taller than you are genetically predetermined to be. Additionally, all medications carry the risk of possibly causing side effects, there are none that can be said to be side effect free, not even supplements. Is there anything else I can help with?
