morphine sulfate er help
Need dr in pittsburgh pa.. been taking ms for awhile want to stay on ## You're not looking for a doctor; you're searching for a drug dealer. I will skip the lecture about the fact that addicts like you make it more difficult in general for people with legitimate chronic pain get the proper medications. Instead of looking in the "Physician" section of the Yellow Pages, try flipping through the "Drug Addiction Treatment" section. You need help,not more drugs.

i get 90 10mg oxycodone from my doctor each month i want to know what minimum he can give me per month
i want to know why my dr. will only prescribe me 90 pills of 10mg oxycode for a month yet know people that get up towards 120 a month. because by the end of my month i have to live in pain for a wek and a hlf before i can drive to his office wait in the waiting room and finally be see , just to get the same 90, which are'nt enough. ## Actually, your doctor is not obligated to give you any of them, ever. 90 pills a month would be 3 a day and that is the normal dosing for pain. How many does your prescription tell you to use? Have you told the doctor that this dosage is not handling your pain? Have you considered a different doctor or perhaps pain management? Oxycodone is a very potent narcotic analgesic. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read m...

How Long Does it take for fentanyl 25 mcg withdrawals to start and stop
i have been on fentanyl 25mcg for about a yr. i am decreasing to 12.5 mcg for a week and then no more patches after. how long will it take to considering the info. will it take for the withdrawal to start and stop. i understand everyone is different. i will be taking valium 5mg for a couple days to ease the effects. any info would be great. ## Yes, everyone is different, so it really makes it hard to say, because it is going to vary. I stopped heavy doses of Oxycodone and Morphine cold turkey, after being on them for about 6 or 7 years for pain management and my withdrawal symptoms lasted for about a month. Hopefully the Valium will help. Has your doctor given you any other advice? ## Thanks for ur info. Several yrs ago I stopped fiorcet w codeine (on it for 4 yrs) and it took about tha...

zzzquil and Type 2 Diabetes
Is this safe for a person with Type 2 Diabetes? I think it is loaded with sugars but cannot find any exact information about this. I think it might be the reason my sugar count has been up for the past month. I have a problem staying asleep and have been using zzzquil for the past month or so and it seems to help, but if it is keeping my sugar count high I'll have to stop taking it.

Lovenox, leftover
What can I do with 8 boxes of this expensive drug? ## The only thing I can suggest is taking it into your doctor or to your pharmacist and let them handle it. Some states have a program where you can turn in left-over medications and they are then provided to people without insurance at a very steep discount. Otherwise, I really can't help, since giving them to someone else is considered illegal. Have you tried contacting a pharmacy to ask? ## I would like to look into a way to get them donated...I am going through Chemo and today they found a blood clot and prescribed Lovenox. I then got the call from the pharmacy that my prescription limit has been met and I have to pay out of pocket which is not possible for me...please don't dispose of them... ## I'd like to help, but I ...

Suboxone Doctors on Long Island
Suboxone Doctors on Long Island,NY that take HIP/Medicaid. Trying to find one ASAP. ## I'm sorry, there's really no central listing that I know of that lets you know what doctors treat with Suboxone and take any certain insurance. Learn more Suboxone details here. I'd suggest contacting HIP/Medicaid and asking if they have any information that can help you, or you can try the Suboxone.com website to find doctors in your area, then contact them to see what insurance they accept.

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...

Lovenox
May I have the contact name and number for someone who deals with financial and or grant information for lovenox? I am on a very limited retirement and have a genetic pre-disposition to blood clots. So, lovinox is mandatory for me before I have surgery ## I have two Lovenox Syrg 100mg/ml left over from my episode with a blood clot in my legs. You can have them free. I don't think that the law will allow me to send them to you but possibly I can send them to your doctor or pharmacist. ## Also, the manufacturer might be able to offer patient assistance plans for this medication. Sanofi-Aventis is the manfacturer and their site has more details about this: Hope this helps. Please post back if you can share any other info, and let us know if you have any luck! ## Yes contact the company...

Full effects
I just started taking carbamazepine 200 mg. I was curious as to when this medicine reaches its full benefit? Also, will this medicine cause depression? Thank you ## Hi Dawn, According to the manufacturer, it has been stated that several weeks are often required in order for carbamazepine to reach its full effectiveness. However they also go on to note that improvements in symptoms may occur sooner in some patients. I would just recommend keeping an open line of communication with your doctor to discuss how things are going for you during the first few weeks of being on this medication. In certain situations it may take up to several weeks before you even notice enough changes in your symptoms to decide if this medication is really right for you. So I wouldn't worry if you don't ...

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....

Klonopin brand name
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

drinking on Lexapro
I was just wondering if anyone has drank with this med and were there any side effects ? I've been on lexapro 10 mil for a month and am feeling great but I am petrified to even atempt to drink alcohol,but would like to try . So if anyone could help that would be great. ## I have been on Lexapro for 3 years. I drink about twice a week and everything seems to be fine. I have noticed that if you drink heavly for a few nights in a row you will feel a slight depression. Just don't over do it. I was worried at first also. ## Lexapro is an antidepressant. Drinking alcohol is not recommended, as alcohol is a major depressant, and undoes the work the medication does. ## Never do that!

Its a treally fishy new company. They dont list any inredients, dont have a real working site and what they sent you isnt a trial, its a full sized bottle that you can use 14 days worth of it for free and return it after. If you dont return it after 14 days they will charge you for the entire bottle which is $85 dollars. I fell for this because I didnt bother to read and just ordered it because I was in a hurry and when I got home and read I was like O.O they are a typical scammy site with really cheesy claims.

From two 80 mg. four times a day of Oxycontin to nothing
My Doctor is afraid to prescribe pain pills even though she's been prescribing them to me for the last twelve years for Chronic Intractable Pain. I have been going through hell. She finally gave me two low dose MS Morphine tablets a day just to shut me up but is very insistent that I find a new doctor even though she has said herself that I will have a problem finding a doctor to take over prescribing my amount of medications. I am going to look in to hiring an attorney and suing for Medical Malpractice but I don't really know if a lawyer would even feel that I have a case. Does anyone have an opinion about this? I am in so much pain. I have not been able to get up from my bed or couch since January that's how bad the pain is. Please tell me what you think? ## Hello, Robin! ...
