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...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

pregnancy after jadelle
has anybody had the rods removed and become pregnant almost instantly, if so did your baby survive? i was 12 weeks one day yesterday (already have a 3 year old son.) when i bled had a scan and the baby was the size of a 9 week old fetus, still not sure if it died 3 weeks ago, or just stopped growing, i am a healthy person and after reading this article: acultureoflife.wordpress.com/2013/03/05/questioning-the-benefits-of-jadelle i just wondered if there was any research or experiences into pregnancy and miscarriage after having it removed? ## Actually, when you've used a hormonal contraceptive, such as Jadelle, it's generally not recommended that you try to get pregnant, immediately. It can take about 3 months for your body to rebalance your hormones on its own and the proper amo...

Fake Orlistat capsules
Hello Everyone Just wanted to let you all know that you need to be aware of fake Orlistat pills being offered for sale as generics to Alli. I bought what I thought were generic Alli 120mg but was sent blue capsules filled with a white powder instead. I know for a fact that the active ingrediant in Alli (Orlistat), is actually small white bead-type drug. So, what is this powder? Only God knows! I've written my letter of complaint to the on-line pharmacy concerned, but no reply. I will see about getting my money back. ## Sorry to hear about your experience when ordering this medication. However, it is important to note that not all manufacturers are going to use the same manufacturing process when making any given medication. Rather than the bead type, they may use a different release...

medroxypr ac 10 mg missed 1 period
Will turn 55 in a few months and missed my period last month. Went to gyno for yearly checkup, sonogram showed everything ok. Dr. Prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg (for 10 days) so that I can get my period. I don' t understand, for ages when a woman's menstruation stopped it often meant menopause...............I think it's just a ruse for prescribing meds ## Hello, Fina! How are you? Yes, it could artificially induce periods, when you may be menopausal and should no longer be getting them. Even oral contraceptives can do that and, in most cases, doctors have a woman go off of them for a few months, when they reach a certain age, to see if they have periods without them. I'd suggest getting a second opinion from a different doctor. Is there anything else I can help with...

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

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...

Can I Take Valium And Codeine Xanx Together
Can I take a Roche 10 (blue) 2064 V (white) and blue xanax at the same time ## My findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions between Xanax, Codeine, and Valium. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: The following paragraph applies to: Codeine & Valium (diazepam). "Using codeine together with diazepam may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do...

White Watson 853
So recently I received a white Watson 853 that looks identical to the yellow ones; size, shape, imprint. Everything checks out except it does not feel as strong as the yellow. I was then told that Watson is not manufacturing yellow ones anymore so I checked the Watson/actavis website. They had no info on white 853. Are these fake? ## Hi Michael, Where a bouts did you get the pill from? If you didn't purchase it from an authorized seller, you could most definitely have a counterfeit. The only other thing I can think of, is that it may just be an old version that is no longer on the market. I believe Actavis pharmaceuticals now owns Watson pharmaceuticals so here is a link to the contact page of Actavis Pharma's website if you'd like to ask them about the pill you have: actavi...

Stopping Levothyroxine
I have been taking Levothyroxine .88mg for the past two years. I just left town on a three week vacation and realized I left this prescription at home. Should I be concerned? ## If you suddenly stop taking Levothyroxine, your body can go through withdrawal. "Levothyroxine withdrawal may cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, fatigue, depression and sensitivity to cold because your body does not have enough thyroid hormone so your body processes slow down. Patients with thyroid cancer may suffer acute hypothyroidism because of levothyroxine withdrawal." Referenced from: livestrong.com/article/levothyroxine-withdrawal Since you've been taking this medication for so long, I would consider contacting your doctor about this if you have be...

Oxycodone in Southern California
My doctor prescribed Oxycodone 10 mg on the 21st of July; it's still not filled. I went to my regular pharmacy, Walgreens and I was told they don't have it, and should ask my doctor to prescribe something different. So now the pharmacist is a doctor? This medicine was prescribe by him because it was the best solution to my retractable pain of my spine literally dissolving which is compressing my nerves. I have three blown discs in my cervical area and three blown discs, one with a 9 mm synovial cyst in it, in my lumbar area which is causing Levoscoliosis. I called every pharmacy within my area and not one could help me. I was rejected by all until I called Costco. My roommate took it over, and the tech told her she needed to have the doctor put the ICD - 9 code on it. She took i...
