Lexapro Brand versus generic escitalopram
I have taken 30mg of Lexapro for past 4 years. After the deaths of my son and his wife in a plane crash the depression and anxiety were more than I could bear. This past May I was changed to the generic escitalopram. God Forbid!!!! What a nightmare. Within three weeks I was suicidal, I was going through SSRI withdrawals which are vicious. I am now paying over $225.00 per month for Brand Lexapro as my insurance will NOT cover it even with prior auth or any other reason. My Medicare Advantage plan leaves a lot to be desired even though I pay a $152.00 per month premium. Has anyone else had problems with the generic Lexapro? My pharmacist said I am not the first. ## I've been on Lexapro for 4+ years and got switched to generic as well. Initially the generic just didn't work (it was...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

can you fill a script for oxycodone from NY in Florida
Going on to visit family and just wanted to know if I will be able to when I get there ? ## What part of Florida you going to? ## Helllo, Jonna! How are you? No, you will probably not be able to get it filled there, since they cannot easily verify the validity of the prescription. It would be best to have it filled at home, before traveling. 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? ## Good luck with that one. I am a resident of Florida and can't even get any local pharmacy to fill my legitimate script for oxycodone filled. Over the top strict here in Florida! ## i know someone who went to Apopka Fl walgreens. They had...

I have been seeing a doc in Ft. Wayne, IN for a year and a half. His nurse called yesterday to say, He is no longer doing the narcotics side of business, one week before my monthly script is written. I have a crooked tail bone that sends pain down my leg. This drug has worked tremendously. I have been working as a waitress all my life and need to stay walking. this is the only drug that has helped. Does anyone have any idea besides writing that in search box on computer? Nurse told me to find pain Doc, but all I have called say they don't prescibe methadone. ## Hello, Katie! How are you doing? Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, if you were calling them and asking them up front about prescribing any particular medication, then it really isn't surprising tha...

Suboxone and Adderall
I started subs four days ago I am taking a whole 8mg sub twice a day. I also take 45mg of adderall a day for ADD and i need the adderall because I am a college student is it harmful to take them together? The suboxone has done excellent for me, and has kept the oxy out of my mind. I got addicted to tabs when I was playing college baseball in order to play through two broken fingers and bum shoulder. So instead of doing a gut check time dealing with the pain through an ice bucket or taking some time off to heal up because i was just a freshman and i was battling it out for starting spot with a all-conference senior. I became immune to the tabs, so a player introduced me to oxy contin I was taking 80mg a day this continued into the fall season of my sophomore year until I tore the ligamen...

20mg vs 40 mg of Viibryd
I have been on Viibryd since Nov 1 2011. I began with the started pack (10mg/7 days , 20mg 7days then 40 mg). After being on it for 2 days my anxiety was TERRIBLE on the 40mg. I am now on 20mg and feeling pretty damn good...better than I have in years. Psychiatrist has agreed to keep me on 20mg and we will re-evaluate later. My question is: are any of you on 20mg and staying there? If so, what are the pros and cons? How are you feeling...does it feel like that dose is enough? ## The dose that works well can vary from person to person and should be individualized, just as your doctor has agreed to do. It also means you will have another dose to go up to later, if/when your body builds up a tolerance to this one. We have a couple of active threads involving people that are using Viibryd, ...

Does 30mg Of Morphine Sulfate Relieve More Pain Than 50mcg Fentanyl Patches
My pain Dr.had me on 30mg. of morphine sulfate 3 times per day & switched me to 50 mcg. Fentanyl patches at 1 every 3 days.The morphine was keeping me up at night & did'nt seem to ease the pain.Second day on the patch & it does'nt stop the pain either any suggestions will be truely appreciated..Thanx ## I don't have an exact answer to your question, since everyone responds differently to both of these medications (based on tolerance, etc). However, according to numerous articles, Fentanyl is said to be approximately 100 times more potent than Morphine, with 100 micrograms of Fentanyl approximately equivalent to 10 mg of Morphine in analgesic activity (or in regards to pain relief). I hope this information helps! ## You need to give it a little time. I am on 75 ev...
