is hydromorphone the same as iv dilaudid
2 Replies RSS
Is hydromorphone the same as dilaudid I've. ## @Biglou, Hydromorphone is the generic name for Dilaudid (brand name), so yes, they are the same drug in that sense. However not all dosage forms are IV-based. For example, I've seen 4mg Dilaudid tablets in person and have also heard of patients taking 2 to 8mg tablets throughout this forum. One other thing to note is that they do make a brand called "Dilaudid-HP" (Hydromorphone Hydrochloride Inj.) which is marketed for intravenous use. Although, I have yet to find out if there is a generic form of the IV as well. Hope this helps answer your question! ## Regarding the post of Hydromorphine IV and dilaudulid: they are the same medication. I was on Dilaudid, (generic name) Exalgo ER 8 mg oral for chronic pain. While in hospital...

33 Replies RSS
i found this in my sons room and want to know what it is its round white with 230 on one side and a funny shape on back ## There is a light yellow, round tablet with the Alvogen logo and the numbers 230 on the opposite side that contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, a generic for Percocet, it is narcotic pain reliever. Learn more Percocet details here. Has this medication ever been prescribed for him? ## I am glad that your site showed this medication on the web, as I could not find it. I was told it was a generic for Percocet. 10-325, also known as oxycodone-acetamine 10-325. Even though this should have been very easy to find on all of the various pill/medication websites available, it was not. I myself have never seen this variation of Percocet 10/325, and was hesi...

myrtle beach
5 Replies RSS
Hi I recently moved to myrtle beach and am looking for a doctor who will prescribe xanax or kolonopin. I have currently been on xanax for the past year or so and it has helped me a great deal (before xanax I was on kolonopin and it also to some extent). As of now I'm having to drive 3 hours to my old doctor to keep getting it. The doctors I've spoken to down here have told me they MAY continue to prescribe it to me but before they will even consider I have to come in and pay for an evaluation which is 300$ Which is completely understandable HOWEVER, even after that there is no guarantee that they will continue to prescribe the same doseage or even the same medication that I am currently on. I have tried countless others and I've only had success with xanax and kolonopin, and...

Psychiatrists IN Tucson?
Post a Reply
Does anyone have a doctor who would easily prescribe me Xanax? I have had success in treating my panic attacks with it in the past, but my current nurse practitioner will not change me off my lorazepam Rx. Ativan makes me tired and does not have the same helpful effect thst alprazolam did. Thank you!

Can you help? ## walmart has it in generic form tuggisson ## I called the pharmacy at my local Walmart to ask if they had Tuggisson and they didn't know what I was talking about.

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
629 Replies RSS
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...

Kadian 80mg hard to find
5 Replies RSS
My husband has been on Kadian 80 mg for over a year. Now all of a sudden the Pharmacy's are saying that they don't carry it and ordering will take two weeks.....does anyone know why Pahrmacys give you such a hard time. Actually had one, look at the current doctor's written script and say we have to call the doctor first, Oh you don't live in 4 surrounding towns (actually live 15 minutes away) we won't fill perscriptions that far away. This si so frustrating!!!!Don't doctor's have any idea where their prescriptions can be filled? ## There are actually 2 different issues that have been causing problems like this all over the U.S. The first is due to changing regulations, it's causing the pharmacies to not be able to order as much and keep it in stock as the...
