Accutane and Infertility
384 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
465 Replies RSS
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
23 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger? ## The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback. ## Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone. To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you for the...

ampyra side effect - knee pain
Post a Reply
I have SPMS and have been taking Ampyra for a month. in the beginning I felt nothing but the side effects of lower back pain and increased balance issues. Those stopped, and I thought maybe it was helping me walk a bit stronger. Then the knee pain started. I didn't connect it to Ampyra at first. But I've found it listed as a side effect in a users forum. getting up from chairs is very painful and I believe the pain has made my walking worse. this is counterproductive and I wonder if I should continue.

PLEASE help me with methadone questions & withdrawl
13 Replies RSS
I have been on methadone for 9 months... I was up to 80 mg but have managed to get down to 20 mg over the past 5 months or so. I am wanting to get off it all together but I am so scared because I don't want to feel miserable from the wd. Since I have been on it less than a year, will the wd still be horrible? Should I go from the methadone to suboxone to make it any easier or just keep going down on the methadone? How long will the wd's last once I am off everything? I go to the clinic so I am not doing it on my own, it is medically supervised. Can anyone PLEASE help me with some good advice?? ## Hello, Staycee! How are you doing? Methadone is actually well known for causing severe withdrawals and cravings, that's why most people treated with it end up on a lifetime maintena...

Solution to getting oxycodone in Fl.
4 Replies RSS
I believe Fl. has the worst problem with going overboard on tightening up the oxycodone supply. OK there were alot of deaths from it but Fl. is home to alot of older people no denying that. This is the retirement state so of course we have more oxycodone being prescribed here than most states. But this across the board slamdown on all doctors and pharmacys within just a couple of years was not the way to do it. Sure we want the out of staters not to come here. But now we can't even leave the county we had the script filled in. You know what I'm saying. I've tried writing to WPBF in West Palm Beach with no response so I'm going to try again and at another station and the papers. There are so many 100% legitimate pain patients that are having an extrordinarally hard time g...

Bactrim Side Effects
69 Replies RSS
I am curious if anyone else has had any of these side effects from taking bactrim. My mouth is so swollen with blisters all inside my mouth.....now it has started to affect my private area as well with same symptoms. I cant eat and it burns all day long. I only took 4 pills when this started. Please help if you can. ## Rhonda, I have exactly the same reaction to this drug. Blisters on the lips, very sore tongue and blisters on genital area. ## Hi Rhonda,what is the dose you are taking and it would be to your benifit to ask your doctor for a different medication or if it were me I would only take half a dose at a time every 4 to 6 hours. ## I am not sure if you are going to get a response, since this post was made in 2007. However, these reactions do happen to some people and in such ins...

hydrocodon vs hyslinga er
2 Replies RSS
What is the difference between Hyslinga ER and Hydrocodone? ## Hyslinga ER is Extended Release Hydrocodone. The way it is made, it can't be abused as easily as Zohydro, which is also Extended Release. It also contains no Tylenol. But, it is very expensive because it was just approved and many insurance companies won't cover it. ## BL is correct. As far as effectiveness, I am being forced by my physician to find out. He posted a small sign in his office that states, "Due to DEA/Narcotic regulations, ALL patients currently taking Norco 7.5/325 or 5/325 and Percocet 7.5/325 or 5/325 will now be prescribed Hysingla ER, or will have to go to pain management." I have had 4 back surgeries, and have been on hydrocodone 7.5 for 10 years! Since when is the DEA my physician? I have...
