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...

Stomach pain some times and feel like I have to throw up
I'm in my first month of taking Sprintec 28 and probably since week two I started experiencing stomach pain sometimes and I wake up feeling like I have to throw up it go on for like a hour or so until I eat then goes away sometimes and occasionally its later in the day too i feel like that. I know these are some of the side affects but will the pain and nausea feeling go away once my body is use to the pills or should I try another brand? Also I started my period on the third week and haven't finished all the blue pills yet is this normal to? Cause I know I'm suppose to start when I take the white pills. So I just need some answers.

Like to hear from anyone that has taken this med.Thanks :) ## hi jen! I have also been taking phentermine for about 2 months now, and yes, the medicine can be great, but the side effects aren't always pretty. when i first started taking them, i had a headache, was super thirsty, and felt like i could crawl out of my skin! I now only get an occasional headache and still deal with the insomnia. what dosage are you on? maybe you should start small, say 18 mg and then move on to 30 when that doesn't work anymore, then 30.7 (...

Anyone Experiencing Missed Periods And Slight Weight Gain On Lo Loestrin Fe Birth Control
I have been on this pill since March and only got my period the first month I was on it and it was very light and only lasted a couple of days. haven't gotten it since. I have taken tests...all negative. Any one else experiencing this? ## Since there are hormonal based contraceptive tablets, both of these symptoms can be normal side effects of using the medication. There is really no harm in skipping your menstrual cycle, there are even contraceptives on the market that are specifically designed to let you skip for several months in a row. However, if you are concerned, you should consulted your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## I probably started taking this in April/May. I can't remember exactly. For the first three packs I didn't get a period. On the fourth pack I...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

tramadol and cymbalta
Has anyone been on tramadol and then started on cymbalta too? I take 150 mg tramadol for a frozen shoulder am have been off Vicodin for a year due to its addictive properties. My Dr. added cymbalta due to increasing joint pain and ongoing depression with horrible morning depression. Just stopped taking 20 mg Lexapro. What have people noticed about combing these 2 meds? I want to function better but not develop serotonin syndrome. ## Hello, Mayvar! How are you? What dosage did he prescribe of the Cymbalta? That's the important factor regarding serotonin syndrome. Your dose needs to be carefully adjusted and your doctor should be monitoring you regularly so any symptoms can be caught early. ## It was the lowest dose of cymbalta, and I take 150 mg go tramadol. I took them both for two ...

does alabama medicaid pay for oxycodone op
Will alabama medicaid pay for oxycodone op 30mg ## Does Alabama Medicaid pays for morphine ## I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for exactly, but I did come across the most recent Alabama Medicaid "Preferred Drugs List" -which you can view by visiting the following link (page 21 on there shows the list of opiates): However if that's not sufficient enough, it may be that you have to end up calling them directly for more specific details on what their policies entail. The number for Alabama Medicaid Pharmacy Services is: 1-334-242-5050 I hope this information helps!

no pain help for oxycodone patients
I just came from my pain Dr.'s appt in Eastern Tennessee, who had no problem writing my prescriptions for oxycodone and oxycontin,the problem was my pharmacy or ANY pharmacy. My regular pharmacy has no oxycodone at all and I take 3 80mg oxycontin daily, all they had was 60 40mg. enough for 2 weeks. I ask both the Dr and pharmacy what do I do meanwhile? Plus after our home of the free government has removed all traces of oxy's what do I do? First they want me to go through withdraw of years and years of oxy's that worked for the nerve pain in my leg. Once I am done with that what will they do when the pain returns?? I don't get euphoria and happy times taking these pills I get rid of the pain. My doctor and I agree that this is what works, now both of us have been told to...

What are the markings on the tablet in question? That would enable me to look it up and check for you.

amoxicillin dosage (Augmenton)
Hello, I (adult) was prescribed 875MG tablets of AMOX/CLAV - 1 tablet 2x a day for strep throat over a month ago but I am now better. My daughter who is 7 weighs 45 pounds has strep now and I have about 18 Augmenton pills left over. What is the dosage for her age? She has had to take pills in the past and I was going to break them up for the correct dosage but i'm not sure what that is. Her insurance does not kick in until the 1st of the month so if it possible just to give her my leftover meds it would save me a ton of money that I don't really have. If it is not possible then I would of course take her into the Dr. ## Hello, Beth! How is your daughter? No, it is never a good idea to try to dose a child with something that was prescribed for an adult. She may not even have an i...

Day One Report, Lisinopril HCTZ 5 mg.
Age 44 Female, family history of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension. Finally went to the internist after feeling weird for about one year--I kept testing high BP repeatedly over the last year. I have 6 members of my family on lisinopril. Day One Lisiniopril HCTZ Report. To ease into it, I took a half pill (10 mg pill cut in half, so 5 mg). Side effects started within 2 or 3 hours. I had a (all too often these days) migraine when I woke up, so I cannot blame the drug for that. After I woke up, I took my BP 131/85, Pulse 83. Then I took my first half pill. Side effects: dry raspy irritated throat, it made it harder to talk at work, pretty bad muscle stiffness and cramping up and down my back (OUCH), general fatigue, weakness in arms, i tried to lift a laundry basket and i felt both of m...
