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...

Hydrocodone yellow Norco 10 325 availability
I have a prescription for the yellow norco10 325.I've taken these for years and now I can't get them .the white ones does not help.I have Arthritis very bad and I really need to know who still carries them in the Mansfield,Arlington,Tx area. I'm 70 and these are the only ones that helps without me having to sleep my life away on the stronger pain meds.that I have taken. i'm 70 so I'll probably be sleeping soon enough. SO in the mean time I would like to have my yellow norco10 325 back. ## Hello, Della! How are you? The white ones with the NORCO 539 marking on them are the same as the yellow, it's just that the manufacturer has removed the dye from them. The yellow are no longer being made. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming ...

oxicodone15 mg and elavil 50 together
Im having severe adhesion pain im taking 15 mg of oxicodone twice a day,and im in real bad pain rt now i have 50 mg elavil that i use to take,i dont feel like going to the emergency room ,and i already left a message for my dr..i use to take 10 mg momorphine with elavil but my dr changed my pain pill.please let me know if its safe tofether..thanks ## Hello, Wylacki! How are you feeling? Elavil isn't an analgesic, so it's not something you can take as needed to help with your pain. It is a tricyclic antidepressant, so it can help with some types of pain, but in order to do so, it needs to be taken consistently for several weeks, before it reaches a therapeutic efficacy level in your body. If you need immediate pain relief, then you should contact your doctor to see what would be ...

Top 3 Effective Toothache Remedies
Just thought I'd post for those looking for a remedy without spending money on drugs: theamericanwriter.hubpages.com/hub/3-Tooth-Pain-Relief-Methods - Take the poll. ## Hey Mike, thanks for sharing this info! I always try my best to opt for natural remedies since they usually don't have the same risk factors as prescriptions do with regards to side effects. Clove oil and pure vanilla extract have done wonders for toothaches I've had in the past, eradicating the infection within days. However I haven't tried any of the options suggested in the link you posted, such as cayenne, baking soda & sea salt, or pepper & sea salt.. so I'll be sure to keep those in mind in the rare event that I experience a toothache again. Have you had success with any of those remedie...

sulfamethoxazole tmp ds tablet help!!!!
Okay so I got a staff assess drained about a week ago and started on sulfamethoxazole dm or ds tablet and I developed a fever about 2 days ago and I've been itchy all over for 2 days now I have also been experiencing the feeling of things crawling on me and extreme anxiety attacks and weird cold and hot flashes. Are these side effects or am I allergic to the medication? Should I go see my doctor even though I saw him about 2 or 3 days ago before the itching started. I'm off the meds now just to let you know I just need to know what to do. ## Hello, Hazel! How are you? Yes, it seems that you're allergic. Did you finish your course of treatment? If so, then it will just take a week or two for the symptoms to go away. However, if not, then you need to see your doctor for a diff...

White Round Pill 54 411 how to take
How do u take a subutex? Is it the same as taking as taking a subuxone ? ## This is an 8mg sublingual tablet and yes, they are used in very similar ways to treat the same things, except Subutex eliminates the Naloxone that can throw someone into withdrawals from taking it too soon. Learn more Subutex details here. Since it is also an opiate narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any other questions or comments? Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Hi katiy, I haven't found any prescribing information, but a recent review from another Subutex user was stating that "the pamphlet says to just let the tablet dissolve under your tongue, and to not swallow the tabl...

Yellow Norco 10 325V
What Drug Store sell these in Northridge, Ca and what is the difference, if any ## I'm sorry, but there is no central listing to let anyone know what drug store carries a medication from any given manufacturer. Learn more Norco details here. Even attempting to create such a database would be a virtually impossible task, since such information is dynamic. Most pharmacies will stock whichever one their supplier was offering at the cheapest price. As to the difference, what are you wanting to compare them to? ## I live in Diamond Bar, and the only pharmacy I can get the yellow Norcos at is Walgreens. Those work the absolute best for me!!! Can't find them anywhere but there!! ## Google the number & letters on the pill. That will tell you what brand. The yellow ones your looking ...

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...

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

I need help finding pain management in Little Rock Ar. I was told of new laws now I have relocated back to AR
I have relocated back to AR. My PCM put in a referral to see my old Pain Management Doctor. I waited to hear back from the Pain Management. While waiting I went through severe pain from a spinal tap. I was able to see a Neurologist after a blood patch. He sent me to a Pain Management Doctor. I explained I was waiting for a certain Pain Management Doctor who was familiar with my diagnosis. I went ahead and saw the neurologist pick for PM. Long story short, I got the approval to go see my old PM Doctor. I left the Pain Management Doctor from the neurologist. I scheduled an appointment with my old PM that was treating me a few Years ago. The day before my appointment they said they couldn't see me bc I had already seen a PM in AR. I explained the situation, but apparently they said I b...

metoprolol withdrawal
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

how long do i have to wait take suboxone after a few days of being on just morphine?
I was previously on suboxone for three years and relapsed on morphine for about three days now and want to start my suboxone back up, but I'm not sure when to take it. I think I will try 1mg of Subs and see what happens in a few hours and if I'm sick I'll just take another morphine........crazy I thought I was good til they were in my hands again. The last morphine 30 I took was yesterday morning and the last 15 I took was at 11pm last night. Any suggestions? ## Do not take the subs until you feel actual withdrawal symptoms if u take it to soon it will send u into withdrawal with is much worse I waited twenty four hours and it was ## You waited 24 hours and it was fine??? Getting ready to start the same thing. The last 15mg I took was this morning about 8am. Is it better the...
