Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

how to treat d s from pain medications with home remedies
I have a friend who has run out of medication and is experiencing withdrawal. He will not have his prescribed medication for 4 or 5 days. I am looking for he remedies, etc. to help him get through his physical symptoms and discomfort he is experiencing. ## Hello Care Taker! How are you? There really isn't much that's going to help. When I went cold turkey off of narcotic pain management, I found that relaxing in a warm bath helped the symptoms more than anything else. If it's okay with his doctor for him to take it, Tylenol or Advil may help a little with the rebound pain and Benadryl or Bonine for the nausea. Side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and stomach irritation. How did he end up running out?

Roxicodone 15mg
## Why is it that in the past 2 months my pharmacy & others I have called all say they are out of roxicodone 15mgs. Does anyone know as it seems I get no answer from anyone ? I was however lucky that the small town pharmacy was able to fill a small portion of my script & said they don't know how long it may take to get the rest of it in. No answers to why just a I don't know from the pharmacist. Please I would truly appreciate anyone that might know why ?? ## There have been some recent recalls and production stoppages that have affected the supply. The Ethex Pharmaceutical corporation stopped production on some of its narcotic medications and recalled them due to possible quality control problems. On top of that, several companies were making these types of medications ...

To help sleep and other needs of great anxiety ## Hello, Louise! How are you? This website does not diagnose, treat nor prescribe any medications. It is an information only resource. Additionally, barbiturates aren't the preferred medications to treat such issues, anymore. There are medications available now that are far less habit forming and that are much safer, such as anxiolytics and antidepressants. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? What medications have you already tried?

any reports of negative effects taking lyrica and meclizine together
I ask because yesterday I went on a sail boat and to not get sea sick I took a meclinzine and another three hours later at about five pm my feet and half way up my lower legs were so swollen it was like pitted edema when I pushed it, it stayed indented and it started this swollen until about 1am. And I was just concerned if it was this is if it's the lyrica since it could swell my feet a little but nothing ever close to as bad as yesterday. Please let me know if you know anything. thank you. ## Hello, Sabbs! How are you? I'm very sorry about what happened. You should have this checked out by your doctor, such severe edema can be dangerous, because it may lead to congestive heart failure. However, as to the medications, no I didn't find any problems listed between taking them...

does iophen c ncr cough syrup have aspirin it
Does Iophen-C NR have aspirin in it? I take 20mg of Xarelto and cannot take any meds with aspirin. ## Hello, Don! How are you? No, this medication does not contain any Aspirin. The active ingredients are Guaifenesin and Codeine, it is a narcotic cough suppressant. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. So, you should be able to take it, as long as your doctor approves. Is there anything else I can help with?

oblong white capsule, ,,a077
I found several of these n my son room, ,will they give a person a high effect, & If so, how many? would a person have to take to feel that high effect, , ## Hello, Worried! How are you? Is the marking possibly R 077? If so, these capsules contain 30mgs of Temazepam, which is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. They are known to be habit forming and are very frequently abused. They are downers, but someone might feel high from them due to the dizziness they can cause as a side effect. If the person isn't tolerant to them, they can likely experience that from just taking one, it's when someone is abusing them or has built up a tolerance that they'll need to take multiples to get those side effects to occur. Is there anyth...

pain doctor in lex ky
Looking for a pain dr. In lex ky that treats my pain ## Hello, Timexx! How are you? All pain doctors treat pain, some just do it in different ways. One might prescribe medications, while another prefers to use other therapies. So, there's no way to guarantee what any given doctor will do, or if they will or will not prescribe anything. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

H49 effective?
H49 in treating cellulitis. How long before improvement is seen? ## Hello Bryan! How are you? This antibiotic is a generic for Bactrim, it is used to treat various types of infections and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. If it's working for you, you shouldn't see any worsening after being on it for a full 24 hours and you should start to see improvement after 3 full days of taking it. How long have you been on it, so far?

Fexofenadine 60 mg
Why is it so hard to find 60 mg fexofenadine on shelves anywhere. The only thing I can find generic or otherwise is 180 mg, 24 hour. ## Hello, SJW! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. I'm sorry, but I'm not exactly sure why you can't find it, since it is an over the counter product, shortages are not required to be reported. Have you tried asking your pharmacist? They may know more. This is a generic for Allegra, which is used to treat allergies and which may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and drowsiness. It could even be that the 60mg dosage just doesn't sell as much as the other, so it may not be viable for most stores to keep it in stock.

I can't find where I can get this prescription filled in the Boynton beach area do you know who had this in stock ## Hello, Gail! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Which medication, Norco or Percocet? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. And would that be Boynton Beach in Florida? Since this website is open to everyone worldwide, it's best to be specific, in order to get help with your problem. Can you please post back and clarify?

Hi, my son is 2.8 year old. He is not having motion daily, even after 3 - 4 days. also used so many medicines but still not having motion. Please suggest ## Hello, Cheran! How are you? Have you consulted his doctor? Since he is so young, you need to have this checked out to discover what's causing his constipation and what the proper remedy might be. It's really not safe to just keep trying various medications in such a young child. What types of foods does he eat? How much liquid does he drink each day?

meds not helping high tolerance
How can I get my Dr. to understand I've built a tolerance to pain meds. Same dosage for 2 yrs . 80mgs of oxycontin and 30mgs of opana daily . I have severe osteoarthritis bursitis and fibromyaliga. Dr. says that's the maxi he can give me. Should I look for another pain Dr.?? ## What is the difference in the old oxycontin and the new?? How can I tell which I have? ## Gigi4121! How are you? The new Oxycontin tablets were reformulated to help make them more abuse proof and the old ones are no longer being manufactured, so it is fairly safe to say that if you've gotten them filled within the past year, you have the new tablets. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth an...

I had blood test and I had this result I was wondering what does it meen (persistent reduction for 3 months or more in an eGFR/=60 mL/min/1.73 m2 may also have CKD if evidence of persistent proteinuria is persent. ## Hello, Based on my research, CKD is defined as the presence of decreased eGFR or proteinuria, which can occur together or independently. From what I can gather, the definition of CKD is when blood tests show these results: -persistent decreased eGFR 1+) on dipstick or urine protein-to-creatine ratio > 0.2, confirmed on two tests at least three months apart.

Keragro Must Read
I haven't had any of these issues tbh. I ordered the pills well over a month ago they have been sitting in my room at my parents house my mom finally brought them too me because I live an hr and a half away from them now. My card was only charged the $4.95 that is all and it is well past the 14 day trial. The TRICK to that is when you initially order your FREE TRIAL for 4.95$ you were told that's all you would be charged, before I ordered it I thought long and hard about it trying too see why this product was so much cheaper than hairfinity. After purchasing the keragro a customer service Rep called me to confirm my order and asked did I want them to continue to keep sending me bottles each month. That might be where the 87.00$ come into play. I told her NO if I like them and I ...

pharmacies that will fill oxycodone and methadone.
I live in Naples, Florida and I am legally prescribed both methadone and oxycodone. I have an extremely hard time trying fill these prescriptions. I once went to 19 different pharmacies in one day trying to fill them! Only to be told that either they are out, don't carry it, or are no longer taking in New "clients." I finally found that would fill 180 pills of my methadone, even though I am prescribed 270. I had my doctor break up my prescription into two so it would be easier. I then found a place that fills my second part of my prescription with little problems. I've been going to these two different pharmacies on and off for the past two years. Now I find out that the main pharmacy I use is going out of business, andnow the other one has been giving me hassles...
