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...

Diltiazem 360 er
At one time I was on Tiazac 360 er and then the pharmacy put me on Diltiazem 360. The Tiazac 360 er is more economical than Diltiazem 360 er. I wanted to switch back to Tiazac 360 er. I have 5 refills left, and I asked the girl at the pharmacy and she said that I would have to have a new prescription. I thought that both of these were generics and I do not understand why I would have to have another prescription. The Tiazac works just as well as Diltiazem. Thanks for your help!

got my sprintec medication on the day I started my period
So I started my period today (tuesday) and was prescribed sprintec today as well. I'm a bit confused because am I suppose to wait and take the pill this upcoming sunday, or do I start today? If I do take it today should I start with the blue or white pill in the tuesday or sunday section? ## Hello, Kim! How are you? You should start the first day of your period, with the active tablets, not the period week tablets and just start with the first one in the pack. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I also have been prescribed the pill. I was told to start on a Sunday., no matter when my period started. It happened to start on a sunday. So I started taking the pill. I am still having my period. Is this normal?

etoshine 120mg
non steroid arthritis medicine in India ## Etoshine contains the active ingredient Etoricoxib. This is a type of medicine known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAIDs work by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase. Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in producing prostaglandins, in response to injury or certain diseases. These prostaglandins cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Because NSAIDs block the production of these prostaglandins, they are effective at relieving pain and inflammation. Cyclo-oxygenase does not only produce prostaglandins that cause inflammation. It also produces prostaglandins that have useful roles in the body. There are two different forms of cyclo-oxygenase, COX-1 and COX-2. COX-2 is the form that (among other things)...

Klonopin brand name
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Does Humira work after Enbrel?
I was diagnosed with RA 2003. Started out with methotrexate until my liver showed signs. Then went on Enbrel for 10 yrs. Other than inj. site issues it was great! No flares. You'd never know I had RA. Istarted having RA symtoms (you never forget them). My next dr appointment I was met bya dr I didn't know and she said my Enbrel was no longer working for me and swtched me to Humira. I did my first IV n the drs office w/o a problem. Second (2 wks) the first site puffed up. This was odd. No other problem so the 3rd inj. I rotated leg/stomach/leg. I have yet to feel more than a 4 day relief after 3 months. I watch my diet for inflammatory foods, stopped alot of food supplements and still not any better. Is Enbrel a stronger med than Humira? Can't seem to get much help from my RA...
