Long term High dose Xanax effects
I began taking Xanax in 1982. I have been abusing it more and more over the years. I can now take 14 mg and not even tell it. I can stop taking it with no withdrawals. It's like I am immume to it. for the past two years I have been experiencing a lack of cognition, forgetfullness and general fatigue. It does not matter if I stop the Xanax for a couple of months, I feel like the deficeit is permanent. Can Xanax lead to permanent brain damage? ## ever have your liver enzymes looked at? I have a suspicion that something might be going on there. More specifically, your liver enzymes. With those amounts and beginning to go even heavier, you are not immune just maybe something is not working quite like is used too. I'd recommend you go get your liver checked out right now... or resear...

Abilify and Chronic Pain Relief
Hello, Has anyone experienced a relief in chronic pain while on Abilify. I am convinced it is this medication that relieved my chronic neck pain. This has given me the idea it might help my mother who is on a daily dose of morphine. I want to bring this up to her Dr but don't want to sound crazy. What do you think? Is it possible?

Cipcal 500
CIPCAL-500 is a product containing Calcium and Vitamin D.What are the benefits and disadvantages of taking one tablet daily for one month? ## Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and to prevent hypocalcemic tetany. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis. The only reason to supplement calcium and vitamin D in my opinion, is if you're not getting at least 30min to an hour of sunlight each and everyday. Also if your not getting enough calcium in your diet then having it with...

Losartan and lisinopril are the same?
hctz 25 / lisinopril 20 mg....how does it differ from hctz 25 / losartan 100 mg? ## One contains Lisinopril and the other contains Losartan. Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor and Losartan is an ARB, so while they both can help lower blood pressure, they work in different ways. The Lisinopril is a more potent medication, so it requires a lower dosage to work. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ## I am so concerned. I have heard absolute horror stories about the Lisinopril. My sister's kidney specialist has told her that this med is poison to her kidneys & took her off of it immediately. Also I am wondering if Lorsartan is the same as well? This just scares me to death. Does anyone have any information on these drugs? ## I would very much like to hear the answer to this. What...

oblong tablet. white with blue specks on the entire length of one side, pink on the other
Found in my 14year old son's pocket. It's about 1/2" long, about 1/3" wide and flattish oblong in shape (not like a capsule shape). There are no numbers or letters, but on the pink side, it has a raised dots pattern along the entire side. ## Unfortunately, with no markings but those dots, I'm afraid it may be difficult to discover what this contains. That rules it out as U.S. prescription tablet, so it must be an over the counter product. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Have you tried asking him about it? Does anyone else recognize this? ## Found the same pill on the floor at a bar. Just wondering what it is

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
I have been in Pain management since 2004 in California and just Moved out there to muskogee Oklahoma... unfortunately there are NO doctors here willing to treat my pain i was on a regiment of 80mg Oxycontin 2X daily 10/325mg Norcos every 4 hours and 4mg IV dilaudid as needed for breakthrough pain... i am in search of a doctor out this way who is actualluy willing to perscribe these meds... thanks ## Well, the first question I have is, how are you checking with the doctors about getting help? The reason I am asking is because if you're calling various doctor's offices and asking if they'll treat you and prescribe specific medications, then you will pretty much always get told no. When someone does that, doctor's and their staff are taught to see it as drug seeking behavi...

drinking on Lexapro
I was just wondering if anyone has drank with this med and were there any side effects ? I've been on lexapro 10 mil for a month and am feeling great but I am petrified to even atempt to drink alcohol,but would like to try . So if anyone could help that would be great. ## I have been on Lexapro for 3 years. I drink about twice a week and everything seems to be fine. I have noticed that if you drink heavly for a few nights in a row you will feel a slight depression. Just don't over do it. I was worried at first also. ## Lexapro is an antidepressant. Drinking alcohol is not recommended, as alcohol is a major depressant, and undoes the work the medication does. ## Never do that! I was on that medicine for 2 years, and I was never able to drink! the first time I drank when I was on ...

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

Topamax and eye twitching
Hi, I have been using Topamax for depression for 12 months and must admit that it has been very sucessful. The one major draw back is that I have developed a very annoying eye twitch. It only affects one eye, but is very noticeable. I was taking 100 mg twice a day, but have decreased it to 100 mg daily. The twitch has decreased somewhat, and I realize that I now have to come off this drug completely to get rid of the twitch entirely. Has anyone else experienced this problem. I read 1 other reader, but are there more? ## Sorry it took so long to reply. I had the same problem with Topamax which I use for epilepsy. It is the coating of the 100 mg for me. The 50 mg does not cause this on me, so I take 2/50 mg tablets instead. Ever heard of Topamax causing gout? ## I've developed an eye ...

Vicodin 325 N 500mg What Do They Look Like
need to know by sight what is the difference between 325mg and 500mg vicodin ## I'm sorry, but you haven't provided enough information for me to answer your question. Vicodin is a combination medication that contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, it is available as the name brands Vicodin, Lortab and Norco, as well as being available as a generic. Thus, there are far too many tablets on the market for me to be able to list them all for you. Additionally, you only posted the dosage of the Acetaminophen in them and not the relevant dosage of the Hydrocodone and there are several different dosages of it available, as well. Learn more Vicodin details here. Can you please post back with more specific details? If so, then I can look up the pill descriptions and markings for you. Than...
