available dosages of diladid
are diladids available in 40mg dosages? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? No, the maximum dosage available of Dilaudid is 32mgs in the extended release formulation and 8mg in the regular release. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have to sleep at night The peach one is GG/257. Please give me advice. I feel feel they have given me the wrong meds.

This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. However, you may have grown tolerant to this dos...

How are you? Thank you for serving our country and I am very sorry that you were injured. Are you seeing a VA doctor or private physician? That might enable someone to provide you with better ideas, since you weren't specific which doctors you're dealing with. 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.

Didrex off market
This BIG BROTHER, NANNY US GOVT has banned Didrex. I can't imagine a more effective diet medication, though I had noticed in recent years, it was not as strong as it had been in years past. So, my friends, that's that. ## @jmm512, I haven't come across any official announcements by the FDA or articles of information stating that this was actually banned; except by the NCAA and other sporting organizations. If this is true, did you ever find out the exact reason why they banned it? Or do you think it might've been due to their inability to maintain quality control over the past few years?

what drugstores carry paregoric in queens
my doctor prescribed paregoric where in queens can I find it ## Hello Barry! How are you? I would suggest asking your pharmacy if they can order it in for you. I know this is back on the market, now, but many places don't stock it, since it's not commonly used, anymore. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and this medication may also be habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with?

subutex small white pill with 54 755
Why do people stay on suboxone for long periods of time? I was on 8 , 10/325s a day for 6months, and I was able to get off opiates with 2, 8 mg pills of suboxone. I took a whole pill (8mg) the first day, 1/2 (4mg) the next day, 1/4 (2mg) the 3rd day, and I stopped taking it. I saved 2mg just in case I withdrew. But I had little to no wd's. I would relapse a few months later for about two weeks. And was able to get off the opiate with just one 8mg sub. By taking a 1/2, a 1/4, an 1/8, and an 1/8 the 4th day. No wds. Knowing I had access to the subs gave me a way to use the opiates recreationally cuz it felt good. Kinda wish it wasn't available. But if it wasn't, I'd be stuck on the opiate. Thankfully I haven't used in 16 months cuz it can get expensive. :-\ ## I guess ...

Oxycodone shortage SCAM
Guys, i hate to tell you this but its all bulls***>>> after 3 weeks trying to fill my Oxy 30, 140, i finally got to speak to my Pharm Manager who Ive used for 12 years. He told me straight up, that all the calls and people have hurt their regular business, so they decided to stop ordering Oxy in any amout to avoid the crap I was floored as all of a sudden he filled my script on the spot not 30 secs before they were all telling me they didnt have any.

pain management clinic that accepts Medicaid in houston, tx area
Doctors thar accept medicaid in houston, tx area that prescribe oxy and morphine ## Do they really accept Medicaid? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such medications on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that may be able to refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? ## There are no new regulations that state you must see a Pain Management Dr for chronic pain. Although it may be very difficult to find a pcp who will treat a new p...

Side Effects - Unfortunate & Rare
Hello. I'm a 55 yr old lady who ruptured a disc in my spine. I was about 30lbs overweight. One of the Clinicians advised that losing the weight would help with the healing of my back. She put me on Phentermine and Topamax. The weight came off pretty fast, about 5 lbs per week. But the side effects were very unpleasant. I found myself planning my suicide. Came too close for comfort. So I weaned myself off the meds. That was 3 months ago. Since then, my hair has been falling out. It's about 3/4 gone with no regrowth yet. I also started having acne, like I'd never had before. It's like cysts on my face and upper chest. My digestive system is totally messed up with pain and diarrhea/constipation. Nothing has helped regulate it (such as Rx for IBS). All blood tests normal!!!!...
