what s stronger than opana
1 Reply RSS
I do not know why anyone hasn't mentoned methadone ? Opana. Diaudid are both IR drugs. The pain relief never lasts long and tolerance develops quickly. Methadone is an instant release medication whose long half life cannot be beat. There is a new law or regulation that if your pain management Doctor has you on methadone that an EKG has to be done each year. Evidently methadone can contribute to heart arythmias but lower dose's ( under 80mg ) seem to be fine. 80 mg of methadone will keep almost anyone pain free ( and possibly asleep) and the duration is 24 hours. I was on methadone maintenance for years but not for chronic pain I am an addict but now in recovery from all drugs and etoh but methadone is a great pain medication for chronic pain sufferers but has a bad reputation be...

FDA rules on the effectiveness of opiates
1 Reply RSS
I've been hearing about FDA rules or a scale of effectiveness of opiates. Does anyone have information on what this scale is and what effects this has on the customer managing their pain levels? ## @Susie, I may be wrong, but it sounds to me like you might be referring to an "equianalgesic (or opioid) chart", which you can find online with a simple google search. Basically all it is a reference that compares things like potency, efficacy, duration of effects, half-life, etc, from one opioid/opiate to another. You can view an example of a chart here: healthcare.uiowa.edu/familymedicine/fpinfo/Docs/adultopioidrefguide.htm I think the implications behind knowing how these medications compare to each other is the most helpful aspect in and of itself. This way pain patients can b...

the time of day to take Losartan
Post a Reply
I just started taking Losartan 50 mg. 3 days ago. I take arthritic meds. for gout so I asked the pharmacy if it would be ok to take this at 7 every evening. Now I am hearing that it should be taken of a morning. I take thyroid medicine first thing in the morning and then mid morning take the arthritis meds. Will it be effective taking the Losartan in the evenings ?

Nasacort side effects?
Post a Reply
Is stomach problems a side effect of Nasacort? I have had painful ones since starting Nasacort about one week ago, as well as some nausea. I use the spray for allergy relief, and never thought it might effect my stomach in any way. Thanks for any help with this matter.

ic lorazepam 0 5 mg
1 Reply RSS
does product help with anxiety ## @buckedon1, The answer to your question is yes - Lorazepam is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, which are commonly prescribed for treating anxiety, depression, and insomnia. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Lorazepam Details I for one don't think the benefits of drugs like Lorazepam outweigh the possible sides and withdrawal symptoms associated with long term or frequent use. But I think it's also important to remember that not everyone responds to these types of medications in the same way...whereas in some cases, certain individuals may find that Lorazepam works better or worse than various other treatment modalities. Hope this helps!

light blue oblong pill 17 on one side d other
1 Reply RSS
Oblong light blue pill with 17 on one side and D on other side ## Hi Myssi, The closest match I'm finding to your description, is an oblong light blue pill with the numbers "1|7" on one side (separated by a divit/score line) and a capital "A" on the other (which looks like it could actually resemble a D, depending on the overall condition it's in - because the letter A is kinda bulged outward in the center). At any rate, this particular pill is identified as a 50mg Sertraline hydrochloride tablet, used for treating depression and anxiety. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Aurobindo Pharma and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 65862-0012. Additional reports suggest that it is approximately 10mm in size. Maybe you can take a measuring ta...

I like my Doctor
5 Replies RSS
He is really old, very funny. Just prescribed me 90 Soma with 5 refills. That is 540 SOMA when others can't get their Doc to write for SOMA at all. ## What is his name is he in Oregon ? ## He should be in Oregon. Just a "County" Doctor in a small Rural area near Vegas. ## Do you know his name? Thank you so veryuch ## Well yes I know his name, really don't want to post it here but I did want to dispel the myth that Doctors are not writing for SOMA or it can't be refilled... I have found Doctors who hate the drug because they might have had personal experience with it and know it does not really have much therapeutic value. On the other hand it makes you feel better and doctors know that as well. By developing a working relationship with your provider over time is the ...
