find a doctor that easily prescribes Xanax and adderall
I am going back to school in two days and am in desperate need of something to help me focus. Because of this problem, I ended up dropping out of this school a few years ago. Also I have major anxiety. I worry about everything, no matter how minuscule, have trouble sleeping because my mind is always racing. When I get super upset, I hyperventilate and feel like I can't breathe. ## Your mind could be racing because of the Adderall. Drugs like Xanax do not help you "focus" and is not a true sleep aid. Your best bet would be to stay off both? ## Hi, Melissa! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, without knowing your general location, it's difficult for anyone to try to make any recommendations for a doctor that may help. Can you please post back and give...

want to fall pregnant but have been using nur isterate as contraceptive.
How long does it take for nur isterate wear off cos i would really like to fall pregnant soon. I have been using the injection since May 2011 to Nov 2011. should i take pills instead so that my cycle can return faster or what? i desperately need advise on this regard cos i want to have a baby. ## Have you consulted your doctor? From the time you stop the injections, you should probably allow a few months for your body to return to normal, before you try to become pregnant. It will greatly help your chances of getting pregnant and of carry a healthy baby to term. ## I've been using nur isterate for 3 years then stoped using it few months ago about for 4 months then went for another injection 2 months back, now i want to fall pregnant but i've been expiriencing some sores in virgi...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

round pink pill scored on one side
I found half a round pink pill scored on one side and the numbers that I can see ends in a 6 over something that ends in T ## This sounds like it may be difficult to verify having only half a tablet... but I did come across a round pink/peach-ish colored pill marked with TEVA on one side and 926 on the other...(no score line) however, after seeing a photo of it, if it were to be broken in half, you'd have one side that had a "T" and on that same half there would be the number "6". It's said to be identified as a 10mg Lovastatin tablet manufactured by Teva. Maybe if you see an image of it on google you'll be able to tell if the color is accurate to what you have? I hope this helps!

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

fake 10/325 percocet
Have about 70 endocet 10/325 one side E 712 on other. Same color as real. I took last night but had sweats and diarrhea by morning no usual energy kick. They break apart very easily and look just like the real deal. Give away is that they don't make you feel high and they look like they were taken from a mold. ## @bxbomber, Assuming that you didn't get these from a real licensed pharmacy, that's probably the first red flag I'd look out for if you're trying to get legitimate medication. I understand that doctors don't always give you exactly what you "want" but that approach still sounds a lot better than risking your money on something that's not guaranteed to at least be real. I don't mean to come off as lecturing, but if you're just ordering...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

Tri-Previfem
My period started on September 27th, 2014. I took the tri-previfem pill today Monday,October 6th, 2014 and accidently skipped yesterday Sunday Oct. 5th. I started taking the first Monday pill today since I missed yesterday, which was Sunday. How should I take the pills now? Should I just take the remaining 1st weeks pills skipping yesterday's pill, which I have not taken and start on the 2nd week's pill starting this Sunday? Will it affect my period and will it still prevent me from getting pregnant? ## Hello, Vicky! How are you? IF you are just starting the pills, then you actually should have taken the first one on the first day of your period. When taken that way, they are immediately effective at preventing pregnancy. However, since you started them later in your cycle, you...

i i am 21 years old but i very slim thin i want to fat so please tell me name of the medicine.please tell me. ## Hello, Periactin (cyproheptadine) is a prescription medicine that is sometimes given to people who need to gain weight. Cyproheptadine, the main ingredient in Periactin, is actually an antihistamine used to relieve allergy symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, itching eyes/nose, sneezing, hives, and itching. I'm not sure if it's available where you live, so I recommend asking your local pharmacy! In order to gain weight in a healthy manner or without medication, I would suggest portioning out your meals every 2-3 hours (right around 6 meals per day). These meals should include natural nutrient dense foods with little to no empty calories, so you can get the most o...

If she continues to have low rate may need to put in a defribilator. ## Hello, Clide! How are you and your daughter? It's actually succinate, not success, but anyway, it could actually cause her heart rate to go low, so it's kind of iffy.

She might do better with something that just helps with overall heart function...

I stopped to use the ic sucralfate 1gm tablet for 3 days after the 4 weeks usage for some reason.May I start to reuse it for another 4 weeks? ## Hello, Juan! How are you? Why did you stop taking it? Was it early in the 4 weeks of treatment, or at the end? This medication is most commonly used to treat active duodenal ulcers, but you might not have to completely restart your course of treatment, depending on your condition and its severity. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness and constipation. What has your doctor advised? Are you still having symptoms of an ulcer?

doctors in Olympia,Wa.
Is there a good pain management doctor in Olympia,WA that will prescribe pills.?? ## Hello, Earnest! How are you? There are plenty of great pain management specialists in WA, but I can't say whether or not they will prescribe you anything. It depends on your condition, health, medical history and etc. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly that could refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way of finding the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? Due to the new regulations that were put in place, doctors have to be careful about prescribing such medications and usually prefer to do so only as a last resort, after other options have failed.

doctors who take care of patients with pain and depression

Thank you. ## Hello, Yvonne! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll not likely find one doctor that will treat both. Anyone that requires controlled substances, such as narcotic pain medications, must see a specialist now to have them prescribed. A regular GP cannot prescribe them, neither can a psychiatrist. A general practitioner can no longer prescribe for and treat chronic pain. It might be easiest to call your doctor's office and ask them for a referral to someone. Can anyone sugg...
