Need help in Florida
1 Reply RSS
I hurt my back while on vacation and a doctor said he could not prescribe hydrocodone, which is what my normal doctor gives me, because I am not a Florida resident. Is this true everywhere or just with this doctor? ## It is up to each individual dr in every state to decide if he wants to prescribe pain meds. There are no laws that say you must be a resident of a state before a dr can prescribe you pain meds or any other medication. The dr lied.

Zoloft + lethargy
Post a Reply
Hi, all. I'm just beginning my third month of Zoloft and it's been quite a ride. First few weeks and as my dose increased, I had nearly every side effect listed: headache, nausea, dreams, dry mouth etc., but about week three I started "smelling the roses." I remember thinking I got my life back. I honestly still think it saved my life. Then for a solid 1.5 weeks, out of nowhere, I couldn't fall asleep longer than 2hrs a night. I would sleep 2 hrs and wake up and that was it. That's NOT like me, at all. Eventually, that passed. The fun Zoloft dreams ended about the same time. Now, I just feel totally lethargic. My #1 fav thing to do is lay in bed, lights off. I even called off work to do this all day yesterday. I had stuff to do to prep for work, decided I'd rath

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
228 Replies RSS
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

Taking Atorvastatin
2 Replies RSS
I cannot swallow pills. The instructions for taking Atorvastatin says do not crush or chew.Should I continue to take this way? ## @flatball, From what I could gather, Atorvastatin only comes in tablet form, whereas you may just have to find a way to adhere to those instructions unless your doctor suggests otherwise. Another thought is to ask your doctor if dissolving the tablets in water would be an option as well? And lastly, if none of the above is suitable for your needs, then perhaps it would be best to find another alternative to Atorvastatin that comes in different dosage forms and without restrictions as to how it can be administered. A few medication names that might be worth considering in the same drug class of statins are: Simvastatin, Rosuvastatin, and Pravastatin - however ...

Viibryd and severe joint pain
5 Replies RSS
I was on viibryd for a year and a half. Soon after starting the medication (40 mg) I started having aches and pains in my joints but I didn't think anything of it because I had recently had ankle surgery and attributed some of the discomfort from that. As the pain in my joints spread I became more concerned as I have Crohn's disease and there is arthritis that is related to Crohn's disease. So as the pain and inflammation increased I went to see my GI DR. and he felt it was Crohn's Arthritis and started me on Humira. Well this didn't help and the joint pain and inflammation continued to progressively get worse. So I was referred by my primary to a Rheumotologist and was started on heavy doses of Prednisone still with the diagnosis of Crohn's arthritis. This bring...

using tramadol 50 mg with gabapentin ativan and zoloft
2 Replies RSS
I have fibromyalgia, has anyone ever taken tramadol when they were on gabapentin, zoloft, and lorazapam ## Hi, Yellowrose. The only thing with the meds you listed is taking the tramadol with Zoloft as they both work on the serotonin receptors and they may cause a serotonin reaction....or toxicity. I can't remember the exact name for it.....my brain froze on that one.....look it up though. The side effects of this include confusion, anxiety and some other aspects of this combo in which you should visit your ER if any of the side effects appear....especially the confusion. They will need to stop your medications and give you other meds to combat the reaction. You would probably need to spend the night in the hospital for them to do this so you are safe. I took tramadol 50mg, 6/day and...
