Side effects of Bactrim
208 Replies RSS
I need to know of any side effects that may occur while taking this medication. ## Are there any risks to taking this medication understanding that the patient is 35 weeks pregnant? ## I took it for sinusitis/ear infection and got a terrible case of hives. ## You can't take Bactrim if you are allergic to sulfa (ie. that case of hives) ## Rash can occur ## My 9yr old daughter was prescribed Bactrim for treatment of a bladder infection. 2 pills twice a day for 7 days on 8th day she broke out in severe hives and a red pin point rash all over her body head to toes she also ran a fever. She has had the rash so far for 4days. Doctor says rash is possible side effect or possible allergic reaction. ## Any medication can cause a possible allergic reaction(rash, hives and more severe reaction...

2mg Ability as a supplement to 20mg of celexa
2 Replies RSS
I was asked by my doc to start taking 2mg of Ability because after taking 20mg of Celexa a month I'm not feeling much relief. I'm very leery because I've been working on straightening out a thyroid issue that has caused me to gain ten pounds in the last two months, and I understand that Abilify is a weight gainer. Does the benefits of being on Abilify outweigh the side effects of being on it ? Please give me your thoughts and experiences. Remember it's only a 2mg supplement to the 20 mg of Celexa I've been on. ## Hello, Rocky! How are you? It is approved as an adjunct to antidepressants in doses from 2mg to 5mg daily. It may cause some weight gain, as listed by the FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and sedation. However, most side effects are tra...

On Fentanyl How Long To Wait Take Suboxone
20 Replies RSS
i am on 100 mcg fentanyl patch every 48 and given the certain amount of waste each month with one or more galling off and whatnot i keep a couple suboxone from an old script on hand. how long should i wait to take a half an eight mg sub.??? thank you in advance ## To prevent them falling off, you might want to try using some waterproof medical tape to help keep them on, they also sell a clear sticky patch that can be used over them and it is fine to do so, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions not to. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. As to the Suboxone, along with the narcotic Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, which is used to help prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is under treatment with it, thus you have to be...

methylpred 4mg
Post a Reply
My MD prescribed this for inflammation in head, ears, nose, throat and cough along with an inhaler. I am on day 5 and although I am improving, I still have a nasty dry cough which has not improved. Maybe I am not using the inhaler properly. I do have some side effects from the methylpred 4mg but tolerable. I would like to take something for this persistant cough but am afraid to mix with meds. I am 79 yrs old in fairly decent health. Can I take any over the counter cough medicine? Thank you so much. Mary

New Subutex laws
34 Replies RSS
I went to see my doctor this week and he told me that the fda and the idea had passed a new law for prescribing subutex. As of July 1st 2015 subutex can only be given to pregnant woman or to someone with documentation saying they can't take suboxone. If you don't have that you will be put on suboxone. ## They Are Both the same thing. Better yet stop doing narcotics, get off opiates completely and get a life. Do you focus on school and work as much as you do opiates being controlled By the DEA??? ## Jim, not that it's any of your business, but yes I do focus on my career now that I'm off the opiates and taking subutex. I received my B.S. in molecular biology and am currently completely my 2nd year of medical school. So now that you know a little about me, what about you? ...

Height Increase Tablet Name
26 Replies RSS
Hai, my name is Vijaykumar.I'm 23 years old.now facing lot problems from small height(5.05),please suggest me which Tablet is the Best for me. ## There isn't anything that will help you to grow taller at this point, when your natural body growth cycle is done, because you have reached full maturity. In order to help someone achieve their full growth potential, proper nutrition and growth factors, if necessary, must be used while they are still in their natural growth period. At 23, you are already past that and will just have to live with the height you have. Learn more growth hormone details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## sir my name is ram , iam 20 years old , my height is 5.5 inch and i would like to grow upto some 3-4 inches , because my friends height i...

how to tell fake percocet a333's
5 Replies RSS
how can you tell fake percocet 10mg/325 pill? any way to test to make sure they are real>? ## Hey Bob; thats a real good question. and the sad part is they come in all shapes and sizes based on the manufacturer and brand...overall the will be a long a oblong shape pill with the numbers clearly written on it. except in the case of watson where it says watson right on it... another way to determine a real one from the fake one is by the price. if you see a ridiculous price like $2 ($60 for 30) a pill chances are you getting a placebo...the average cost of 30 pills is anywhere from $500 to $700. anywhere in that price range you know that you are getting the real stuff. ## 500 to 700 bucks for 10/325 percocet? ## People r making fake a333 and others watch out ## Yep, I know for a fact b...

Punched in the gut feeling for 3 weeks straight
Post a Reply
Took Linzess intermittently for the last few months from doctor provided samples, didn't work great but no real issues. Filled my first 30 day supply on June 11th and have been in agony ever since. feel like I've been punched in the gut, kidney area pain, bloating, distention, and fatigue. Doc said it wasn't from Linzess, so I kept taking it. Tested liver, pancreas, everything is normal but these stomach pains will not go away. Only thing that helps is sticking to a clear liquid diet, but I can't do that forever. Last 2 nights woke up around 4am and ran, literally ran to terlet and experienced a Dumb and Dumber type "evacuation". This morning I decided to stop the Linzess. Rather be constipated. I'll post an update. May not be the Linzess causing the issues but

Yes-what is the major difference between these 2 meds? I have taken xanax for several years. I'm thinking abt. changing to Buspar. Can you switch meds like these without tapering off the xanax. Does Buspar help w/ Panic attacks? ## buspar is for depression and xanax is for anxiety. ## buspar is for depression and xanax is for anxiety. I was wrong buspar is also used for anxiety but it not a Federal drug and it does have addition potutial like xanax ## Hi, I wanted to address the panic attacks you are experiencing. Often panic attacks and anxiety are the body's natural reaction to telling us something has gone wrong that needs to be addressed. It is usually some form of trauma that has happened in our life that creates the panic attacks and anxiety. Medication numbs the symptoms ...
