Questions about narcotic or anti-anxiety medications
Being a pain patient for 20+ years, and having panic attacks daily have given me the knowledge of every medication and how they work or do not work.

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

will antibiotics effect birth control pills
I've been using Purbac for a month now. Can they prevent me from falling pregnant? Secondly I've recently gain weight, can it be because of them because i'm only taking it with Texa Allegy tablets for my skin as prescribed by my Dermatologist. ## Dear Pontsho, I've always was told, when u r on birth control and antibiotics 2 use back up protection. Something about how antibiotics can interfere with the full effect of birth control.

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

Can respiradone and novelon tablets can used together. I am not getting periods bec of 1mg respiradone tablet so doctor prescribed novelon tablets. Can it be used together. ## Dear Hema, does your Dr know u r on Risperidone? If he's the one who gave u both medications, then u have nothing 2 worry about. Besides, your pharmacy would catch this, if there were a problem.

I do not believe my grandson who is in kindergarten is adhd but his dr. is putting him on 10 mil. of adderall. What exactly is this drug? my daughter was adhd and was on ritalin. ## Im 20 years old, and at the age four I was diagnosed with ADHD; I think it was the worse thing to ever happen to me. I was put on one of the strongest forms of ADHD medication, Dextiadrin.

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Where to get Betametasona Clotrimazol Gentamicina
Could you please let us know how and where we can obtain a couple of tubes of Betametasona Clotrimazol Gentamicina ASAP!!! I don't know where it is available to buy, but we would greatly appreciate any details. Thank you sooooo much, Cindy ## Hi Cindy, The medication which you are referring to contains Betamethasone + Clotrimazole + Gentamicin. This specific combination of active ingredients is not sold as-is in the United States, which is probably why the label is in Spanish. I think you have a couple of options. (1) See if you can get a doctor's prescription and have a local pharmacy compound it for you (2) If you travel to Mexico you should be able to bring the product back through customs provided it is for personal use You might also find a related discussion thread to be h...

a peach pill with 3605 on one side a v on other side
i have a teenager i found an oblong peach pill with 3605 on one side and a v on the other side help ## The pill which you are describing is Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone (325 mg - 7.5 mg). Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone is a combination of two types of pain medicine to treat moderate to severe pain. 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. ## If you "find" pills and do not know what they are for, it is best to flush them and walk away. If it isn't perscribed to you, leave it alone. Addiction is a vicious cycle that often ends in death. Is losing your life worth a high? think about it.... ## Stephan, she's worried that her kid is using the pill. She can...

tendons curling up and antibiotics
I have been prescribed antibiotics frequently by doctors. I frequently have infections related to bacterial infections and have noticed something strange slowly occurring. It started in my right leg then the left knee. I can't straighten either leg. Tingling and then it felt like a ball under my skin. My hands are showing hard clumps. Two PCPs have told me it is my tendons. Pain numbness the curling up of tendons are the symptoms. Is this from the heavy use of antibiotics?

name of tablet to get early period
my marriage is coming and i want to get my period before time so plz suggest me tablet for that. ## i want early periods before 2 days because i am going to outside. ## Hi priya, If you have a preferred doctor or gynecologist, I would suggest discussing hormonal contraceptive options with him/her. Usually these types of medications (when taken in a particular manner), can significantly influence the timing and duration of your period. For example, with something like Lo Loestrin Fe (norethindrone acetate + ethinyl estradiol), there are 2 or 3 different color tablets. 1 blue, 1 brown, and 1 placebo. Taking these in a certain order for a set period of time can provoke an early period or delay it, depending on how you use them. Your Dr. or gynecologist should be able to prescribe you the n...
