Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

percocet 10 325
I accidently took five Percocet in a 3 hour period today from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. I took two around 12:00 pm and two around 7:00 am. Possibly a total of nine today. I have been on this medicine for 1 year. I usually take two, 3 times a day for a total of 6 per day. Will I be okay? ## I do not want to overdose. This was sincerely an accident. It's been an hour. What would overdose symptoms be. Could 50 mg over 2 1/2 to 3 hours possibly be fatal? Should I go to the hospital? I have tried (with no success) self induced vomiting to no avail. Now I am drinking quarts of water. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

doctors willing to prescribe xanax in new jersey
I suffer from severe panic attacks on a daily basis. im a perfect example of a person that needs medicine and is unable to get it because of so many people abusing prescription drugs. I have such severe anxiety and panic attacks and cant find a doctor to prescribe me xanax because im only 25 and its so addicting. but what they dont understand that i should be on xanax for the rest of my life because my anxiety is so bad. So if any1 knows a doctor in the monmouth county area of new jersey that will prescribe me xanax please let me know...thank u ## Actually, part of your problem is that you are so convinced that you need that specific medication and are already insisting you will need it for life. This will automatically make doctors wary of prescribing it, because, even though you may n...

finding doctors that treat health problems as well we pain
Have an excellent doc but he does not practice pain management due to dea regulations and paperwork etc i need a family doc who handled pain management. ## This is no longer possible! Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll have to see a pain management specialist if you require narcotics for pain control, then another doctor for your other health issues. The easiest way to get the help you need would be to ask your current doctor to refer you to someone. Is there anything else I can help with?

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

i have been given5 325 hydro i have not taken yet, i was on 10/325 b4 i didnt feel anything with that dose, which is strongest?
I have taken hydro 10/325 and never felt any help. Now I was given hydro 5/325 but I haven taken it yet, I just pick it up. I am hoping it will do a better job. ## Hello, Sheryl! How are you? Please don't let the fact that it is a medication confuse you, the higher the number, the higher the dose. Thus, the 5/325 isn't as strong as the other. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Why did the stop making Fioricet?
Anybody know.. why they stopped manufacturing fioricets? ## The original Fioricet tabs were manufactured by Watson, but Activas Pharm took it over so I called the company and spoke to them directly regarding the new formulation of the capsules. I spoke to the head of Pharmaceutical Engineering and he explained that, while the main compounds have remained the same, except for the acetaminophen levels going down, the INACTIVE ingredients have changed and there is a SULFA ingredient in this capsule that could render it ineffective if someone (like me) can not metabolize sulfa compounds! Though the website states their change in formulation is due to FDA requests for Tylenol levels, this is not true... they only decreased by 25mg. That was a convenient excuse! Their pharmacy rep explained t...

Are Toxic to your PETS, the EPA listed one of the chemicals in these products as very TOXIC ## The important thing to be noted here is that all of these types of products use pesticides that have the potential to be toxic, if used improperly.
