Humira resistance
I have been on Humira for about 5 years and it has been a life saver. In the past 3 months or so I've found that it would only help for 10 - 12 days instead of the 2 week cycle I've have been on. Now I'm down to about 80% effectiveness and only helps for about a week. Has anyone experience a resistance to the drug after a period of time? ## Hello, Richard! How are you? It is normal for that to happen with any medication that you are on for a long period of time, it can vary from person to person, so there is no time frame that can be given. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? They may have an idea on how to help you.

local pain management Dr. in athens ga.
I need to get back in to pain management now that I have medicare ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, most specialists are swamped and it's rather hard to get in with them. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, that may be the quickest way to find the help you need.

white oblong pill with f on one side and nothing on the other
I found a white oblong pill with f on one side and nothing on the other. I was wondering what this was. ## Hello, Joe! How are you? I'm sorry, but I haven't been able to find a listing for anything that matches this description, so far and the rather obscure imprint leads me to suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product, of some type. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

I'm favor Dr.'s taking a stand for and not against pain management.
Advocats for pain management and who are making headway against ridding sufferers of their necessary medicine....my hat is off to you. Does anyone know of an area in the U.S. where 10/500 are still being scripted? Loratab is the only real medicine that keeps me existing as a normal person. I'm not asking for anything more, just a normal pain free life. ## That dosage is no longer being manufactured, so it isn't available anywhere. Due to the detrimental effects that long-term use of high doses of Acetaminophen can have on the liver, as well as the risk of overdose toxicity, the FDA ask manufacturers to stop making them at the start of the year. Thus, the maximum amount available per dose now is just 325mgs. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit formin...

But, wanted 2 let u know I've been in klonopin 4 almost 10 years now and every once in awhile, if I'm having REALLY bad anxiety or going through a bad time, my Dr will prescribe Valium 4 me. He told me, just don't take them at the same time, spread them out over a couple or few hours of taking the klonopin.

Where Can You Get A Prescription For Oxycodone Or Morphine At What Pain Clinics Still Give Them In West Palm Beach Florida
i just got an mri where can i take it and get a prescription for oxycodone or morphine in west palm beach, florida, anyone know ?even methadone would do, what pain clinics still give scripts for these medications......the names of them would help me out ## Deb, I'm surprised your having difficulty finding a pain management company. There are many around west palm beach. There is a problem getting certain medication due to the recent DEA shutting down Walgreens distribution center and quite a few pill mills. I would like to suggest a few, however I need to know whether you have insurance. That would narrow down the search. I have insurance and a long list of problems. I have tried several doctors, however they wanted to change my normal script of oxycodone and give me opana. Opana is...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

Methadone verses Suboxone
Hello, everyone! I've heard stories about how some people stay on methadone 4 many years 2 life. Does anyone know if this is true? I've been on subs 4 almost 8 years. And, i was addicted 2 Oxy. (Heavy duty). I m just so scared if I got off that I would b back at a pain management addicted, again. Due 2 my severe pain from many medical problems. And, I DONT ever want 2 b in that situation, again! I'm sure a lot of u people understand that. Thanks 4 you're input. ## P.S. I lost my train of thought a bit, there. Meant 2 ask if anyone has heard of being on suboxone for years or life? ## My sub doctor said that I might have to stay on suboxone for life. I disagree with him. Suboxone is solely used for getting off of opiates, and other reasons. That way you won't go throug...

lo dini
Can I take dinintel and drink apple cider vinegar? ## Hello Monique! How are you? Natural produces, such as the ACV are not tested for possible problems and interactions with medications, as is done with prescription drugs, thus, I don't have this information for you. Have you tried asking your doctor or pharmacist? ## I think as long as you're taking the acv in reasonable amounts then you should be okay. Remember that it is made from pressed and fermented apples, and is slightly acidic in ph. In other words, it's natural and is like eating food. There are supposed to be lots of health benefits to taking it regularly, so just remember to follow recommendations for both your med and whatever other dietary supplements you are taking. Like Verwon said, when in doubt just double...

My husband is having withdrawals
My husband was in a major car accident a year ago that left him on Fentanyl. He started out on 125 ug and weaned himself over this year down to 25. He decided it was time to get off of the terrible stuff after 2 months on the 25s (with his doctor's enthusiastic approval). Last night he started having the withdrawals... shaking, sweating, insomnia, terrible headache, feeling like he wanted to crawl out of his own skin. He took two hot baths and between that and the med he uses for muscle spasms he was able to fall asleep. He's sleeping comfortably now but I am so worried about him. I understand it could take weeks or even months before he feels fully normal again but how long does this initial part last? What can he do about the symptoms in he meantime? Please help :( ## Oh, I pr...

Levothyroxine is Satan
I don't feel so confused anymore. Now I know all of you are going through the same thing. My doctor put me on 50mcg of Levothyroxine about a month ago and I have gain 8 pounds! I get short-breathed and winded REALLY easily when working out. I used to go to the gym for 2 hours, now I can't make it longer than 30 minutes. I wake up ALL the time with tingly fingers because my hands have fallen asleep. I have headaches, I feel 100 times more lazy than before...and it's supposed to help your energy, not drain it. I e-mailed my doctor today, this is not making me happy. Not to mention I now have an acne type rash that burns like hell on my chin and I've always had clear skin. If this drug is supposed to make you feel better it sure as sh*t isn't working for me. I feel like...

Daliresp Experience
I have been on Daliresp for one month. I have noticed significant improvement in my lungs. By that I mean the mucus is gone, wheezing is gone. My lungs seem to be getting clear and do not feel as heavy as they did before I started taking it. I have had my bouts of depression, I am never hungry, which is a problem because I am underweight as it is. Just wondering if anyone else has had success with this drug. I was hoping to get off oxygen at some point. Don't know if I can achieve that or not. ## I don't have a lot of information on this medication, since it is very new to the U.S. market and we haven't had a lot of posts about it, either, for the same reason. Have you tried discussing this with your doctor? They may have some ideas on how to safely increase your appetite an...

How are you doing? Some people are prone to recurrent UTIs and do require this antibiotic on a long-term basis for prevention. That is something you may want to discuss with your doctor. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?
