Muscle or joint pain
I have been using fenofibrate for about 4 months. About that same time I started having sharp pain in my left hip area. I thought it might be a hip problem but it seems to be more like a muscle in the top of my buttocks to my very lower back. At times it seems to be more pronounced in the front side like my upper groin area. Sometime the pain lessens some if I am doing more physical activities during the day like mowing the lawn and working around the garden. I have also just in the last couple of days been having severe soreness in my right shoulder deltoid area. I just saw that the fenofibrate can cause some muscle aches. I stopped taking it a few days ago (my Dr.told me to anyway when the last prescription ran out) My question is if these are side effects from the fenofibrate how lon...

L476
yellow oval blank on one side and L476 on the other ## This is an over the counter medication manufactured by LNK International, they make various items that are sold as generics or store brands, however, since OTC items are not regulated like prescription drugs, there is no database that lists them all, so I cannot find an identification on this. The only thing I can tell you, is as I said, it is an over the counter medication. ## Its a sinus congestion&pain..nighttime..you can buy these in any store.. has.acetamopen.325mg===chlophenramine maleate.2mg===phenylephrine hci 5mg..... ## WHITE OBLONG WITH L476 ON 1 SIDE , AND BLANK ON THE OTHER SIDE.

methadone dr
i'm looking 4 a dr who can & will prescribe methadone i've been on 9yrs for chronic pain but cannot find new dr. is buying on the internet from out of country all i can do? i live in greenwood in ## Hello, Julie! How are you? There are 2 reasons you may be having a problem finding a new doctor. The first is if you're calling new doctors and asking them if they'll prescribe it, they will view that as drug seeking behavior and, in most cases, they won't even let you get in the door. And the next also has to do with asking them about, if they possibly think it's for addiction treatment, they have to say no, since private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for that. In other worse, regardless of which one is applicable, you need to just set up an appointm...

What is the new drug op that is substitute for OC .what is the diffence?? ## It is the new version, called Oxycontin OP, it is specially designed to prevent abuse.

How to get off Suboxone successfully - Step by step
If you are struggling with getting off Suboxone successfully, you may want to take the time to read this. I have read a ton of hype about Suboxone being impossible to get off. How the withdrawal symptoms carry on for days, even months. Below, I would like to encourage you and let you know that it can be done. I AM LIVING PROOF YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS FEAT!!! I have been free of Suboxone and all other drugs and alcohol for 3 months and I have never felt better in my life!!! THE WAY THAT SUCCESS HAPPENED FOR ME AND CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU: For months I read Suboxone blog sites in the effort to gather some element of hope that would encourage me to make the “jump” to get off my final 1/8 tab (1mg) of Suboxone. At the point I started reading these blog sites, I had come down from 2.5...

ear infection drops question about Neomycin & Polymyxin B Sulfates & Hydrocortisone Otic Liquid Solution
I went to a clinic this past wednesday & had a massive ball of wax removed from my right ear & the pain in my right ear has subsided. Now my left ear feels like its full, clogged & hurts on & off since wednesday but 2 doctors in that clinic assured me there's no wax in my left ear BUT that my left middle inner ear has "supposed" fluid in it that needs to dry OUT. So I was prescribed amoxicillin 2x a day for 10 days & prednisone 40mg a day for 4 days ((to dry out my left ear, which steroid makes no sense to dry my ear out anyway??)). Well amoxicillin I am fine with but the prednisone left me with the worst acid reflux (since I'm an acid reflux sufferer), awful hives from head to toe, & was shaking horrificly like a leaf because I took prednisone fo...

Can i use Pliva 334 to cure an std? If so witch ones?
I have an std & i still have some Pliva 334 left from a track infection, i would like to know if i can use this to cure the std or if i have to buy more medicine. please help. ## The tablet marked Pliva 334 contains 500mgs of Metronidazole, which is an antibiotic, but it is generally only effective at treating certain infections. Thus, it will likely not help with an STD and, you may not have enough of it to actually fully treat the infection. You really should see a doctor to get a proper diagnosis and treatment. Are there any other questions? ## Pilva is normally given to treat mostly non sexually transmitted infections such as your uti and others caused by bacteria. Plz see a doctor to treat sti's if you think you may have contracted one. Plz avoid having oral (giving and rec...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

what pain medication how many milligrams is the most effective
My pain medication no longer works. My body stop has responding to them and instead I feel amped up. That's so disheartening, and defeats the purpose. The reason for taking pain meds is because I suffer from 6 major medical diagnosis and I don't what to get into them right now. My physician plays dumb when I ask him. I will say I've been on pain meds for over 11yrs and have had 4 surgeries and another 1 is in the works. Can anyone help? Please and your help is very appropriated. ## There isn't anyway to say that any one medication in a certain dosage is more effective than another, it really depends on the person and what works for them. That said, it's hard to even make a suggestion that you can discuss with your doctor, when you haven't mentioned what you'v...
