fake 2mg xanax
I brought white bar with Xanax of front and 2 on the back but it was a little sticky and bigger then normal size bars It's like the size of the green 3mg bar is the 2 mg real or fake and I drop in a sprite it took like 2 hours to fully dissolve ## Hello, Durty! How are you? There is a name brand 2mg Xanax that matches this description, though I can't speak to it being sticky or bigger than the others, since I've never taken them. I also don't have any idea on how long it should or shouldn't take to dissolve in Sprite. But, as I said, there is a real one with that marking. Xanax is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, he...

kvkt oxycodone hcl vs zydus oxycodone hcl
I just picked up my medication. Im prescribed oxycodone hcl 20 mgs. Up to this point I hasn't always received the kvkt brand grayish pill with z 57 on it. This time I was dispensed zydus brand gray pill with np 14. I want to know what peoples opinion is on the effectiveness compared to the kvkts. Im already aggravated because I usually break the old ones in half and take them a half at a time and these are impossible to break evenly. What are yalls experiences, good or bad with these? ## The ones with the NP 14 marking are actually manufactured by Nesher Pharmaceuticals, hence the NP, not Zydus. Though Zydus might be a licensed distributor in your area. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dr...

find doctor to prescribe belviq in lexington ky
Looking for doctor in lexington ky to prescribe belviq ## I'm looking for a doctor as well. We live in the Ontario, CA area. We have kp HMO and when I asked my doctor if she could give me a prescription, she said she couldn't. But, that what she could do was to refer me for counseling/group to show me what I should be eating. That's NOT what I need! I need something to help me curve my appetite. ## Hello, Felicia and KD! How are you both? In the U.S. any doctor can prescribe it, but you may be referred to a specialist, if you have a weight problem. Medications, such as Belviq, are not appropriate for everyone. It is also used as an adjunct to a reduced calorie diet and exercise plan. It also requires that your BMI exceeds a certain number, plus other risk factors are also ta...

Pill Pink R 33
Small pink pill with R33 is a 5mg Clonazapan, Generic for Klonopin. ## It is a Clonazepam tablet, but it is only 0.5mgs. Learn more Clonazepam details here. Clonazepam/Klonopin is actually only available in a maximum of 2mgs. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I was taking a .5 ml clonazepam tablet for a couple of years. I had no side effects whatsoever. Recently, my pharmacy has switched to an orange .5 ml clonazepam tablet. I am now experiencing dizziness as well as less beneficial results from this new pill. Will the dizziness go away in time or should I look for a pharmacy which uses the pink tablets? Thanks. ## Can u take it if u think ur pregnant ## you cannot take nerve pills or muscle relaxers while you are pregnant, unless your physician has prescribed it to you and ...

conversion from opana er 15mg to ms cottin
My Dr has given me the option to switch from Opana ER 45mg to msCottin ER! How many MG of MSCottin ER will it take to equale the Opana ER 45mg?? ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? Opana is actually much stronger than Morphine, so you'd need 135mgs of the MS Contin to equal each 45mgs of the Opana. That's quite a lot to take. Is the Opana no longer working for you? 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. Oxycontin or Fentanyl might be better options. ## Thank you for the information. It's helped a lot! I am switching medications because of several different stomach problems I have. About 10 years ago I had gastric bypass surgery that went horribly wrong...

Alcohol and Belviq
Hello, I have been on Belviq for a little more than a week. It works great! I lightened my food portions and I still feel full before I finish it. I am still craving sweets but it is not as strong. I keep a bowl of red seedless grapes handy. It really helps. My question is this...on the weekend, it is nice to have a beer or a drink or two. Is this OK while I am taking Belviq? I can not find that information anywhere. Thank you. ## Hello, Harriet! How are you? Belviq can cause side effects, such as trouble concentrating, drowsiness and dizziness, so combining it with alcohol could worsen those effects, basically making one drink affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. It is really best to avoid alcohol, while taking a prescription medication. However, if your doctor okays it, then yo...

Xanax in or around Joliet Il
Does anyone know of any doctors in or around Joliet, IL that will prescribe xanax? Thank you!! ## Hello, Brittany! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, since Xanax is a controlled substance that is commonly abused and can be habit forming, you'll need to see a specialist. A general practice doctor won't be able to prescribe it for you. This medication may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and irritability. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

tamsulosin 4mg cap without fdc yello2 5 dye innert
Im highly allergic to fdc yellow 5 dye. I take Tamsulosin 4mg and as far as I know Sandoz is the only lab manufacturing Tambulosing 4mg cap -without- fdc yellow 5 as an innert. However Sandoz has had Tamsulosin pending manufacture for about 2 months and I am having a hard time ensuring enough supply. My pharmacyst is working with their distributor who claims to be in contact with Sandoz to get "my" dye-fee tamsulosin but so far, no luck and I only have 30 caps left (take 1 a day) Do you know if any other lab who manufacture Tamsulosin 4mg without yellow dye? ## Hello, Jose! How are you? There is one from Teva Pharmaceuticals with the marking 93 7338 on each half of the capsule that used yellow 6, one from Mylan that is a blue capsule with MYLAN 2500 on both halves that doesn...

Looking for an anxiety psychiatrist/doctor who is willing to script alprazolam
I live in Charleston and am looking for a doctor who doesn't have a problem scripting alprazolam. I don't misuse it and it's the only thing that has ever helped me feel NORMAL. I've tried buspar - doesn't work for me. I've tried depression meds-didn't work. Moved here from Illinois about 6mos ago and I'm finding it very difficult to find any info online. Any help would be appreciated. ## Hello, Aburg87! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist, now. A regular PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you. And since this is a controlled substance that carries the risk of being habit forming, you can't really shop for docto...

what does generic tylenol 3 look like
i found a pill tylenol looks like regular or genaric but some one told me it was a hospital tylenole 3 does a tylenol 3 have no marking? and its long like a tablet ## Hello, Amy! How are you? No, even the ones dispense in hospitals have markings on them. Tylenol 3 contains Acetaminophen and Codeine, it 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. It is available only by prescription and all manufactured prescription medications in the U.S. are require to have markings to enable their identification, in case of emergency, even in a hospital setting. That said, that means it is an over the counter product and from the description, I agree with you on what it most likely c...

Plavix and Leukemia
Is there a connection? My husband received 2 stents, one in October 2008 and a medicated one in November 2008. He was then placed on Plavix. In November 2009 he was diagnosed with AML leukemia, he passed away 6/2010 at the age of 56. There was no obvious reason for him to get leukemia, it is rare for someone that young to have AML. We know that his heart disease was genetic. He was very health conscious, always ate healthy, exercised and was in great physical condition. I have read little tidbits about Plavix causing bone marrow damage and am wondering if there are other Plavix patients that have or had Leukemia. Thanks, Chris ## There have been very rare cases of Leukemia reported in people using Plavix, however, the percent of occurrence has been less than 1%, so there has never been ...

spironolactone 50mg shelf life
What is the shelf life of spironolactone 50mg. I have two unopened bottles dated 12/10/10. I was taken off in 2010, and put back on it recently. I would like to use rhem but fear poisoning. Is it safe to digest. ## Hello Lmdjones! How are you? This medication doesn't get dangerous, once past it's expiration date, but it does start to lose effectiveness and may not work as well as it did, when new. If they are in the original factory sealed bottle, they are generally good for 3 to 4 years, but once in a pharmacy dispensing bottle, where they have been exposed to the elements that cause degradation, they expire one year from the date of dispensing. If they are that old, it would most likely be best to just dispose of them and pick up a new supply. This medication is a potassium sp...

white e65 pill
I have a few E65 clonazepams and the scores on the back are not all the same. Some go strait up, some go sideways and some even go from...10-4, like on a clock. Does it matter where the scores are? I dissolve them under my tounge and they still taste the same. Just confused ## I understand why that would be confusing, but it doesn't matter. It really just depends on how the pills land in the press. They tend to bounce around, sometimes, so they don't all get pressed exactly the same. Clonazepam is a generic for Klonopin, it is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to anxiety and nervous disorders. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help w...

cannot fill my prescription for oxycodone 30 in florida
i have tried everywhere in my county that i live in florida, get the same answer from all the walgreens and the pharmacies in my area they are out and dont know when they will have it if ever again. i think this is a shame for a person who has a prescription from a doctor and is in severe pain all waking hours. i think this is also a shame because all it does is gives the drug dealers on the streets a reason to charge $20.00 a pill and laugh at us all the way to their bank. there has got to be some relief for us honest people that are suffering and work hard to have insurance and be up standing citizens. i thank our governor for making this problem worse in florida and feeding right into the drug dealer hands. please can someone help and get the honest people who suffer everyday the rel...

Is Zonisamide for mirgaines
it read that it's for controlling seizures (epilepsy). Nothing about migraines. ## can you explained why it was given or migraines? ## That's why it was prescribed to me but I stopped taking it because of the side effects. ## Hello, Puddlin! How are you? Many medications treat multiple conditions and these antiseizure ones have been shown to help with migraines, some mood disorders and certain types of nerve pain. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, anorexia and memory impairment. Some others that can also cross over and help with migraines are beta blocker blood pressure medications. Some antidepressants can also help with nerve pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Any way to reverse long-term Chantix side effects?
My mother took Chantix several years ago in an effort to quit smoking. Well, she quit for a year. During that time, however, she became unbearably depressed. She has no history of depression. She consulted a doctor several times and tried 3 different prescriptions, 1 of them being Zoloft. She stopped because she said they made her feel like she was just in a constant haze. She hasn't been to a doctor or a psychologist since then. In the mean time, she started smoking again because she thought that it would make the depression go away. It didn't. Because of her experience with the 3 prescriptions, she is unwilling to go back to a doctor, and dismisses any notion of going to a psychologist. Our family has pleaded with her to keep trying, even if she has to tell whoever she sees th...
