I have caught cvs and other pharmacies lying about not having oxycodone is stock, shortage 2012
Well today I officially caught a cvs here in Ga lie to me. A friend of mine filled his Meds yesterday. I go in, having a history with cvs, a recent one, and am immediately lied to. The pharmacist comes over and tells me they haven't had them in stock for months, without looking at his book or computer. At this point I stated an employee I know the name of told me shipment came in Thursday. He lied again. I then told him friend had filled yesterday morning. He said it was impossible. I then said I saw the bottle with my own eyes, it had their address on it, and even told him what brand they had since my friend just filled his there. Pharmacist lied to me yet again. I then asked him why he wad lying to me and that I am tired of being treated like a criminal because I am 30 with a hand...

if u run out of oc's how can u get your dr. to write an early rx so your ins. will cover it?
On oxycontin 80 mg. twice a day. Ran out but need dr. to write rx. But need ins. to cover it. ## From what I understand, that it is usually going to be based on your doctor's discretion as far as trying to convince him/her to write you a script early. So that's really only something you can speak with your doctor about if you've built any sort of trust within your patient/doctor relationship. You can always just be upfront and honest about how your increased use of oxycontin. But just so this never happens again, you should always take your medication as prescribed and nothing more. Otherwise you'll just keep repeating the cycle and digging a deeper hole. As far as your insurance is concerned, I believe someone in another thread had recently mentioned that most scripts h...

gabapentin 300mg 1g322
Does this pill have a Gluten filler in it? ## Hello, Patricia! How are you? One of the fillers in this capsule is corn starch and, as you may be aware, it is usually processed in facilities that also process wheat products, so much of it is contaminated with gluten. That means that yes, there is a possibility that there may be some in this. Are you having a problem with it? Some type of reaction? ## Hi I don't know but I took 2 pills that totaled 600mg of gabapentin and one 40 ext- release of omeprazole . Is that ok ## No so far I'm fine I just want to know if I need to see a doctor

yuduc sibutramina diet pills
Are they still available in Mexico? ## Hi Patricia, From what others have recently stated, it should still be available in Mexico. Based on comments I've read it seems like most people have reportedly gotten it within the cities of Tijuana and/or Michoacán, but I'm sure it can be found in most places throughout the country of Mexico if you speak with the right people. You might also be interested in skimming through this other Yeduc related discussion thread with nearly 1400 submitted comments pertaining to the effects of this medication and it's availability: Discuss/Yeduc-Sibutramina-176832.htm Perhaps someone there who's already been to Mexico can point you in the right direction as far as which places you should go first. I'd keep in mind though, that in man...

Weight increase tablet name without sideffects
Hlo , i am guru 5' 5" guy, my weight is now 40 kg how can i gain my weight, plz reply ## Hi Guru, Have you thought about supplementing with something that will increase or stimulate your appetite? There's really no other type of pill that can make you gain weight without experiencing the harsh side effects of steroids. So focusing primarily on your diet and caloric needs is probably going to be your best bet for gaining/maintaining the weight you desire. Health stores like GNC or Vitamin Shoppe also offer other alternatives like high calorie weight gainer shakes. Doing this along with lifting weights or strength training, should be ideal for putting on a significant amount of weight through muscle mass and not so much through fat. I hope this helps!

Hoarseness Side Effects?
I was diagnoised with hypothyroidism last December and was put on Levothyroxine (75mcg). Overall I have been feeling better and have more energy. But unlike most other people with underactive thyroids I was not overweight and since going on Levothyroxine have lost 10 pounds and am continuing to lose weight. I also have developed hoarseness which gets worse as the day goes on. Question-the weight loss is a common side effect of the medication-but has anyone heard of hoarseness? My thyroid levels were tested a few weeks ago and are now normal. ## Yes, I have noticed sore throat and hoarseness also on generic levothyroxine 75mcg. I finally tried not taking it for a couple of days and the sore throat and hoarseness went away. Started taking it again and voila, the sore throat and hoarseness...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

Liveraid Silymarin Capsule
Is liveraide silymarin capsules good for hepatic liver cyst? Does it inhibit the infection of the liver? thank u very much. ## is liveraide silymarin capsule good for hepatic liver cyst? ## Silymarin is actually an herbal supplement derived from the Milk Thistle plant and as such, it hasn't actually been tested and proven to do anything. It is classified as a flavonoid. It is believed, but as I said, not scientifically proven, that these substances have a protective effect on the liver. Thus, you shouldn't solely count on it to treat, cure or prevent any liver disease.

procedure of taking trust pill
can i take the trust pill after my menstruation bec as ive search in internet there says u must take the pill on the first day of mens but my firend told me after the mens so tell me pls im confuse bec i want to use trust pill so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month. Are there any comments or questions? ## can i use trust pill as a quick start? Its been two weeks ago since i got my monthly peri...

Expired Flexeril
i have chronic back pain however try not to take medication unless i have to. i have left over flexeril 5mg from a prescription written in dec. 2009 and expires 2010. is it safe to take for muscles spasms or should i toss it. i like to keep some in my cabinet because the few times my back gets really bad i am unable to get out of bed. ## Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant and you should contact your doctor for a new prescription, because it does lose efficacy past the expiration date, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. This creates the danger of overdose, by taking more, to get the relief you need. Almost all medications have a limited shelf life and will start to lose efficacy past that date. Are there any other quest...
