adderall 20mg
i am trying to identify a small light blue pill with N008 on one side and a score in the middle of the other side. I was told that it is a 20mg Adderall. I have seen blue Adderall but they are 10mg. ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? The round, blue tablet with the N008 marking actually contains 20mgs of Propranolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, certain cardiac conditions and some migraines. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, hypotension and dry cough. Is there anything else I can help with?

xanax doc in Denver Colorado
Hello. My doctor got shut down and i was on xanax. Does anyone suggest a doctor in the Denver metro area that i can go to so i can continue to get my medicine? I'm freaking out because im running low. TIA ## Hello, Dencolo! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? Do you have any other doctors there that you see regularly? If so, they might be able to refer you to someone.

Lost my pain management Doctor need a new one in Central Virginia
I have just lost my pain doctor in Central Virginia that I had for 14 years. I am looking for a good honest doctor that can help me. I am on 15 types of meds for different health issues such as fibromyalgia, chronic back and neck pain, depression, asthma, RSD, diverticulitis and more. Please advise if you know of a good pain management doctor ## Hello, Garfield! How are you? I'm very sorry that you've run into such a problem. Do you have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, they might be able to refer you to a good doctor. Most aren't going to be willing to treat all of your conditions, so you'll likely need to see several specialists. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area?

pharmacies that will fill oxycodone in tx from ohio
moved to tx and am on ohio workers comp ohio doctor sent me persciption but no one in tx will fill it ## Hello, Mark! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, it isn't likely that you're going to find a pharmacy there that will fill it. Due to the need to be able to verify such prescriptions, as well as the mandatory supply limits, most pharmacies are going to require that you and your doctor all be located with a certain radius of their location. 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. It might be easier to get yourself set up with a local doctor and then have them coordinate with the other doctor, so they can writ...

finding a pharmacy in las vegas with norco 10 325 stock
Where can i get my prescription norco 10/325 filled in las vegas nevada? ## having trouble finding a pharmacy that has NorCo in stock ## Got me, CVS has been sitting on my Rx for 1 week. Can't or won't say when it gets in also may not get 7.5mg/325's ## I'm sorry that you are all having a problem getting your prescriptions filled. On top of all the other changes that happened this year, we are also now into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a company has manufactured their allowed amount of the year, they must cease production until the new year. So far, I've not known of a single year where demand hasn't exceeded the supply and a shortage happened the last few months of th...

new orleans pain Dr
Hi I'm looking for a pain management doctor in New Orleans/Westbank/etc area. I'm 27 and some places I called only accepts 35+. My Doc of 6yrs has cancer, so he transferred his patients. I recently found a Doc, but he doesn't prescribe soma, and reduced my pain meds. I rather just find a Doc in my area, than drive to BR each month for less meds. Thanks. ## Many Doctors do not like to prescribe Soma. You are also taking Pain Meds too? As you know pain medicine and Soma go together. Doctors know this too. Now that Soma a Schedule IV medication, you will find it harder to obtain. Still possible. ## Hi, Honey! I'm very sorry about the problems you're having. Unfortunately, even if I researched doctors for you in that area, I have no way of knowing what age or type of pat...

Anxiety, Heart Palpations, My mind won't slow down!
This may be a little long so please bear with me,.. About 6 months ago I started suffering from light headaches. They began later in the afternoon and continued for several months. I'd take Aleve or Motrin and they would subside and all would be okay. Fast forward to the last two months. They have been He** on earth for me. About 2 months ago, I had a series of panic attack in one day. I had just started a new job that I hate and is very stressful for me. I'm trying to change jobs and hope that helps. Anyway, the attacks have become more and more frequent and I have come to a place where I don't even want to leave the house. I have been to my Doctor 3 times and the ER once. I was diagnosed with GAD and Hypertension. My anxiety has gotten a lot worse. Even driving now sends m...

white e65 pill
I have a few E65 clonazepams and the scores on the back are not all the same. Some go strait up, some go sideways and some even go from...10-4, like on a clock. Does it matter where the scores are? I dissolve them under my tounge and they still taste the same. Just confused ## I understand why that would be confusing, but it doesn't matter. It really just depends on how the pills land in the press. They tend to bounce around, sometimes, so they don't all get pressed exactly the same. Clonazepam is a generic for Klonopin, it is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to anxiety and nervous disorders. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help w...

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...

Does 100 mg morphine sulfate extended release pill taken every twelve hours (2 per day) equal 100 mcg. Fentanyl patch applied every 48 hrs.?
My question concerns drug conversion. The Fentanyl works well, most of time, for my chronic pain, but my insurance now says I can only get it again in March of 2015. This is still Oct., 2014, so I will be out of patches at end of October. I don't understand this, because just stopping the patches would/will cause terrible withdrawal, because if you are only couple days late, withdrawal starts. This happened also recently as my dr. changed (at my request to try something else)100 mcg. patch to only 15 mg. of morphine ER every 12 hours, because of patches costing almost $400 for one month, which I cannot afford, due to "doughnut hole". The change made be very sick within two days, so I had to go back to patches. I didn't think the 15 mg. extended release morphine was enoug...

Lactose intolerance and eliquis and chest pain
I have severe lactose intolerance and I have been taking eliquis for 6 weeks. I have developed eextreme chest and upper abdomen pain......I was also, for abrief time, on verapamil 240 mg. EKG and doc says not a heart issue. Any thoughts on this? ## Hello, Hummingbird! How are you? I am very sorry that you're so miserable, that's terrible. It sounds like it might be causing an acidity problem, most medications can do that. What have you tried for alleviating it? Those symptoms tend to occur with GERD. Eliquis has been known to cause some gastrointestinal bleeding, which leads me to suspect that it can cause severe internal irritation and possibly erosion. Other side effects may include dizziness, skin rash, headache, confusion and fainting. What type of doctor are you consulting?...

Zoloft, exercise, and increased adrenaline??
I have been on 150 MG of Zoloft for anxiety for about six month (give or take). It has really help with my panic issues. I have felt much more like my "old" self. I am very active and my energy levels have remained high... I exercise 5-6 times a week (crossfit, kettlebells, intense cardio, and basketball). My issue/problem - I have been experiencing weird body rushes during heavy/hard workouts. I read up on brain zaps but what I feel is in my body (not head) and only happens when I am working out. It feels like an amped up adrenaline rush that I never experienced pre-zoloft. Could zoloft be casuing this? Has anyone experienced this? Thanks for any information, eah3 ## I took Zoloft for a number of years for OCD, but I never experienced such a thing while on it. Additionally, it...

1st month taking microgestin fe 1/20 bleeding for 8days
1st month taking microgestin fe 1/20, Bleeding heavy for 8days ,my usual period only last up to 5 days. I have 4brown pills left ,should I stop taking the pills or continue ? ## Hello, Silky! How are you? Since this is a hormonal based contraceptive, irregular bleeding can occur for the first 3 months, or so, while your body is getting used to the hormonal change. If it continues past 3 months, then it might not be the right one for you and you may need to switch to a different OC. Other side effects may include nausea, headache and mood swings. However, you should continue taking them, unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you so much for your response, the bleeding stopped after 9days, your reply was very reassuring. I just starte...

local shortage of hydrocodone my mother takes 10 325
Our local walgreens is out and they have no idea when they will be getting any in. Tried at least 3 walgreens, 1 kroeger, cvs and no avail. any others having this problem? ## Yes... I'm having this same exact problem, my pharmacy CVS keeps ordering it but it never comes in. They think the companies who make it are having back order issues because of the recent change from CIII's to CII's... I have tried everywhere within driving distance and no one has this... what the heck is going on???

I noticed a bitter taste when drinking or eating stuff, and finally found one stuck to a piece of ice. ## I believe they are muscle relaxers ## Hello, Heidi! How are you doing? I am very sorry about what's been happening to you. However, what pills has he been putting in your drinks? You didn't list a specific medication or pill description. Nor did you place this in any particular pill forum. Can you please post back with more details, so I can help you? Thanks! As to your boyfriend, if he's really doing this, I'd be very cautious about trusting him and you should know that this is illegal. It could be very dangerous. ## I checked the pill and the number on it and looked it up. Says the are colonop...

hydrocodone shortage 10 325
What is it going to been my med filled ## Hi Mary, I'm not aware of any current shortages for generic Norco, as there are no official announcements on the FDA's drug shortage list (linked below): accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/drugshortages You may want to ask the pharmacy you go to if it would still be available at a different dosage/quantity than you're used to receiving from your doctor; (after of course making him aware of what's going on as well). From what I've heard in other threads, sometimes they wont fill your script if the dosage or quantity is more than they are prepared to dispense. So any adjustments to that might make it a little easier to fill your script on a regular basis. However I would also encourage you to check with other pharmacies in your area as...

Missed a day
This is my third month taking sprintec. I completely overlooked taking the pill last Saturday and didn't realize until today when I took the pack out of the holder entirely. I've taken every pill at the same time except for last Saturday's. I therefore took two today. Should I be worried that skipping a pill and catching up today caused ovulation? ## Yes, there is a risk of that, though only a slight one. You can use backup protection for the next 7 days, until you've made sure to take a pill each day, without missing any, so you'd be sure they are preventing ovulation, again. Otherwise, the only thing you can really do is wait and see if you start your period, when it's due. Oral OCs may also cause side effects, such as irregular bleeding, headache, irritability...
