I have a chronic pain issue for over a decade I have had to get new Doctors
I am a widow , & I moved to mid-America& I left a daughter behind. My youngest goes to MSU. I am an Author. I was on Vicodan 10/500 and they changed the laws and now only Norco is possible 10/325.For Chronic Nerve Pain. They had all my records. I Think they were ALL thrown away. The Qualitest Brand has fillers. I requested from my DR. Watson Norco..or NORCO ..not generic. I pay $1000 to a Man who I married in a faze of grief & doesn't do anything for me. I called Watson. They said to either ask my DR. for ONLY the Watson Brand or NORCO. Non Generic which would be $30. I've been getting my Norco , the Watson Brand. & Actually a Neurologist is supposed to be calling. I'm on huge amounts of Nuerontin and FINALLY..my Hepatologist said it was Crap. You Must be You...

Metronidazole
I have some meds let over from my last episode 06/05 and wondered if i can take it now instead of going to the doctor again ## CAN I TAKE METRONIDAZOLE 400 MG FOR 6 WEEK ## Is metronidazole a good medication for boils? ## Is combitic global pvt ltd legit? I ordered metronidazole 400 mg from a canadian pharmacy and they sent me purple pill with no marking on it made by this company so I want to make sure if this med is fake or not.

h86. Other alternative ideas
I was hoping to find more information on H 86. For those of you searching alternative cancer treatments, cancertutor is a good site to explore. It is well put together but doesn't appear to list any info on H 86. Does anyone else know more about this being used as a form of cancer treatment? ## @Caprial, According to some of the discussion threads here on this site, H-86 is just another name for (Avemar) fermented wheat germ extract. If you run a search for this, you may have better luck coming up with the type of results you're looking for. Perhaps the following articles will help point you in the right direction: 1). ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16126993 2). cancer.gov/drugdictionary?cdrid=529839 3). ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=avemar There are actually a plethora of other natural...

suboxone and klonopin
I've been on klonopin and suboxone for years. As long as you don't abuse them and take what the dr tells you to, you won't have a problem. It can and will be death if you abuse them. Hope this helps. ## @brian, You have a good point. Self control goes a very long way. As habit-forming as something like klonopin is, continuing to adhere to your doctor's regimen can be the biggest difference between becoming a fully fledged addict or remaining a normal patient. I know those are just labels, but it really is a delicate balance that one must maintain over the duration of treatment or course of several years, as you can vouch for. Glad to hear that you're still finding them both to be beneficial and not detrimental after all this time. Take care!

Ip 190 500 Hydrocodone
A FRIEND GAVE ME A PILL THAT HAS IP 190 ON ONE SIDE 500 ON THE OTHER SIDE.I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT WAS ## Hi Chloe, Based on the description provided, I found your pill marked IP 190 500 to be Naproxen (500 mg). Naproxen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used for the reduction of moderate to severe pain, fever, inflammation and stiffness. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## My Dr gave me some a while ago..do they expire? I am in pain again would it be okay to take one ## I hope she didn't take the pill not knowing what it was and being illegal to take someone elses med. Also, I would not post online that this happened or someone re...

doctors willing to prescribe schedule 2 central texas
Have been on oxycotin 40mg 3xdaily and percocet 15 as needed. Need a doctor who will spend time with me-long medical history. Any small town area around Austin or within 100 miles. Better yet, one that (internist-GP) who can assist in my adhd meds and knows anything about dextroamphetemine sulphate and how it can reduce pain anywhere from 50-100%. A life without opiods would be amazing. Plus, I have never addressed my ADHD-refused adderall. Have tried all the holistic hippie stuff and neuro/anti-depressants to no avail. Docs don't know what to do with me. ## Amphetamines don't help with the management of pain. There are some drs who will prescribe amphetamines to combat the sidew affects of some of the pain meds. But, those drs are few and far between, even if they are pain mana...

Asthmanefrin Medicine Cup
Posted a few entries before. Still using the ultrasonic cleaner but with cold distilled water. Basically they give out in a few months and I have to buy another medicine cup. I wish Nephron would re-design this so it would last a lot longer. ## Hi Glenn, I believe I responded to one of your older entries on the site the last time you posted about this ultrasonic cleaner. Amazing that those medicine cups hold up as long as they do, but it sounds like a marketing ploy to get you to keep buying more if you ask me. One thought though is to contact the manufacturer directly and see if they have a "black box where suggestions go" - in hopes that they'll take the hint and run with it Lol. I posted a link to their contact page below: nephronpharm.com/contact-us Do you know if any ot...

what is the difference in yellow 4mg dilaudids i have always got and white ones that are manufactured by malli they dont work
I have always got the yellow 4mg. dilaudids and they worked great. This month I got white ones 4mg. that are manufactured by Malli. They don't work at all. I need to take two to even get any relief and it is not much. ## @iceangel, Usually when you receive a tablet that looks different from what you're used to getting, it's often the result of differences in the list of inactive ingredients; even if the dosage remains the same. If you happen to know the imprint on both tablets I can post a list of binders/fillers used in each one for a closer look at what makes them different aside from the apparent yellow dye. From what I've been led to believe, certain types of fillers can't actually be metabolized by our bodies and because the active ingredient is mixed up within ...

white oblong pill ip 190
Is this similar to Vicodin or norcos? Does it give you the same feeling/affect? Does it have narcotics in it? Is it considerate a opiate? ## Does it have ip 190 on one side and 500 on the other, white oblong ? If it does it is 500 mg Naproxen. Naproxen is a nonsterodial anti-inflammatory. It is the same medication that is in Aleve over the counter, except the mg is higher in prescription Naproxen. It is not a narcotic or opiate. It does not contain the same medication as Vicodin or Norco.

does anyone have gastroparesis how do u manage pain
My gastroparesis causes right sided pain that can get very severe? Doctors don't want to give pain mess because it slows things down. Well I can treat the constipation I don't want to live in pain. What do other gp patients do ## @docchrid, Have the doctors been able to determine what caused the gastroparesis to begin with? I've read that one risk factor is from having diabetes, and wonder if at any point you were diagnosed with that as well? In either case, perhaps the idea of supplementing daily with digestive enzymes/probiotics and eating more fresh raw fruits/vegetables could improve your intestinal motility enough to metabolize food more efficiently (i.e. less work for your stomach muscles). - And in that respect, a strict regimen involving this may also help counter an...

what is D484 on a oblong white pill
I founf a oblong white pill D484 on one sidevan and blank on the other side . ## Hi roxie, Any chance that the marking says L484 as opposed to D484? Reason I ask is because I did locate a white oblong pill that has L484 on one side and is blank on the other. But I've yet to see one with D484. This particular pill is identified as a 500mg Acetaminophen tab, made by Kroger Co.; and for verification the approximate size of the tablet is reported to be 16.00 mm. I hope this helps! I'll still look forward to hearing back from you if you believe it to be something different.

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them eac...

metoprolol withdrawal
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

white pill with 20 on it
We found a small white oval shaped pill. it was blank on one side and 20 on the other. it was scored but not sure which side. Please help! ## @dittle, I've searched far and wide for a match to this description, but only to find pills that have come remotely close. So I have to ask if you'd be able to take a moment and double check to see if there no other markings on this besides the number 20 and a score line? If this remains to be the case, part of me wonders whether it is something that was purchased overseas or online from another country. Would you also happen to know where it was first found?

baclofen for trigeminal neuralgia
Iam now on gabpentin for trigeminal neuralgia and a neurologist wants me to tru beclofen. i want drug information about the use of baclofen for this condition ## Hi Elizabeth, Based on my research, there are studies indicating that Baclofen is reported to be useful for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. References: 1). ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6372646 2). ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6201366 However, as with starting any drug, there's really no telling whether or not you'll experience some possible side effects as well. So that may also be something to keep in mind if you haven't had any complications arise with Gabapentin in order to better compare the two options. I hope this helps!

Doctors in Michigan that prescribe methadone
I'm interested in finding a private doctor's office (not a clinic) that will prescribe methadone. I can't afford these clinics! Does anyone know of a doctor??? ## I am a full time student and a single mother, I need assistance in finding a doctor who prescribes methodone because with my schedule and trandportation I cannot go to the Methadone Clinic anymore. ## Katy did What do you take methadone for? If you take it for opiate addiction, you won';t be able to find a doctor to prescribe it for you because a doctor can only write it for chronic pain. As for money, by the time you pay to see a doctor (Pain managment is a specialty) it will cost you more than going to the clinic. Most pain managment doctors charge $100.00+ each month plus the medication, and another problem ...
