Amneal oxycodone (generic percocet) 10 325
Amneal's oxycodone, generic for percocet 10/325 is white, oblong, blank on one side, and imprinted with IP 204 (not IP 203)! I usually take Watson or Mallinckrodt, 10/325, (2) tablets every 4-6 hours (240 monthly), but I was given Amneal today when filling my script, and I am not happy! I have cancer, and I also take morphine sulphate 30 mgs as well (1 every 12 hours), and Fioricet with Codeine for severe migraines (as needed)! I do not feel Amneal is sufficient or even close to the chemical makeup as Watson or Mallinckrodt for controlling pain/chronic pain! Amneal does not act the same way on my body, and I should not have to take more for same result! I think when you pay cash for your medications, and have been on the medication for 8 years, using the same pharmacy, they should o...

kera gro hair tabs
got these in the mail I ordered them,but afraid to take them they were not conpletey sealed! ## I ordered them too for being ignorant. These people dont eveb have a website. Its a treally fishy new company. They dont list any inredients, dont have a real working site and what they sent you isnt a trial, its a full sized bottle that you can use 14 days worth of it for free and return it after. If you dont return it after 14 days they will charge you for the entire bottle which is $85 dollars. I fell for this because I didnt bother to read and just ordered it because I was in a hurry and when I got home and read I was like O.O they are a typical scammy site with really cheesy claims. I checked out their "website" and they lie about several things like that ou can contact then by e...

doctors in grand rapids michigan who will prescribe pain medication
I am a severe and chronic pain patient on my way towards a fibromyalgia diagnosis. I just moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan and have priority health/medicaid. Do any of you know a good Doctor whos not shy about prescribing opiates??? I'm tired of being labeled a drug seeker when the drugs i seek ACTUALLY WORK. I don't feel high off them, I'm not a junkie, I just NEED to manage my pain levels because they get debilitating. I've great results historically with low level dose methadone (5mg 3x's daily) with norco (10/325mg, 4 x's daily for breakthrough). In otherwords I'm not looking to be a strung out zombie, I just want enough to take the edge off so i can function. Are there any sympathetic Doctors in Grand Rapids Michigan that won't treat me like a drug se...

Need Doctor. West Subs of Chicago-I take Norco 10/325's for PAIN
I live in near Aurora, IL. west suburbs of Chicago PLEASE SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW A DR. AROUND AURORA, IL OR W/IN 10 MILES OR SO THAT WILL PRESCRIBE THE PAIN MEDS I NEED. I'VE TRIED AT LEAST 7 OR 8 DIFFERENT MEDS. THE NORCO10'S OR EVEN STRONGER (FEWER PER DAY) WORK PERFECT, NO SIDE EFFECTS. I'VE TRIED ALL THE OTHER NON NARCOTIC AND THEY DO NOT WORK OR I FEEL LIKE A WACK FROM DRUGS LIKE LYRICA. I don't want to be treated like some drug addict...JUST LOOK AT THE MRI FROM LAST WEEK. ## The plethora of posts really wasn't necessary and, if you type in all caps online, it is equivalent to shouting and you won't get many responses. Now, as to your situation. One difficulty you may be creating for yourself is by trying to insist on a certain narcotic medication. Many doctor...

blurred vision, unsteadiness
I've been on Gabapentin for three weeks. The unsteadiness has improved somewhat but the vision has me worried. My sight clears up about an hour or so before the next dose. It's not an alarming loss of vision, just a fuzziness that's bothersome when I read. Has anyone else experienced this and how long did it take to pass? ## Hello Hi I too am dizzy from medication but I also take other , cancer p/ T in remission. Maybe you need lower dose ask your Dr. Nice Day ## @Lonnie, Based on my research, blurred vision is actually listed as one of the more common side effects associated with Gabapentin. Ref: On that note, I don't know if you can even expect it to go away while you're still taking the medi...

fine heal tablet
Why my doctor giving me ib throat hoaseing? ## @kishore, I've never actually heard of the term "throat hoaseing", and oddly enough I'm not finding anything on search engines relating to it either; nor anything about a "fine heal tablet". Did your doctor not explain to you what that might entail upon notifying you of the procedure? Under normal circumstances most information on medications or procedures can be found with a simple google search, however neither of the things you mentioned are showing any results when I go to look them up. Personally, I wouldn't go through with it until I was able to sit down with my doctor and go over everything in detail about why he/she is recommending it be done in the first place. It's also important to understand that ...

How many days before I feel the effects of Clonazepam working in my body begin to work
I have been prescribed Clonazepam for anxiety. I am to take it three times per day, one tablet at night about 30 minutes before bed time, one tablet first thing in the morning (I wake up about 6:00 a.m.) and one tablet around mid-day (1:00-1:30 p.m.). I have been taking it since Monday but do not feel any effects (though I have slept better the past two nights). How long does it usually take before clonazepam is in my system and will give me day time relief from my anxiety?

phenazopyridine 200mg
I have Phenazopyridine for UTI. It's late and I'm feeling the urge of pain this is the only medication I can find in my counter but it has a fill date of 12/9/11. Is it safe to take? ## Hi Jessyca, How are you? From what I could gather, most medications (aside from certain antibiotics) rarely become "unsafe" to take after the expiration. The only real concern I see from something that old, is that it may not be quite as potent as it once was, potentially making it more difficult to determine what an appropriate dosage might be. However, on the contrary, the following article by Harvard explains how many medications can actually retain their potency for up to 15 years beyond the listed expiration date: So on that note I thi...

alprazolam 1mg- green s902 vs. blue 605. which is better?
Been taking oval green 2x's a day for couple months. Now the pharm sent me blue oval 605, is there a diference or it doesn't matter in effectiveness? Also, are they ir, er, ect? N how could I tell, I looked everywhere ## The new tablets you received, with the 605 marking contain 1mg of Alprazolam, in a regular release formulation, so they are the same as the ones you were taking with the S902 marking. The only difference is that they have been manufactured by a different company. Learn more Alprazolam details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## would like to know if xanax will help me to get off pain pills? i take 1mg xanax 4 times a day as it is now. will it help with my wiyhdrawls if i stop taking pain meds? ## will xanax help my withdrawl systoms from not taking ...

vyvanse before surgrey
I took a 70mg vyvanse a day before my hernia repair surgery at 12 pm will I be OK for surgery at 1 pm the following day ## When you make an appointment to go into surgery you're supposed to inform the surgeon of any medications you are taking or planning on taking during the procedure. This is especially important if you want to avoid possible interactions with anesthetics or other strong medications. On that note, only your surgeon can rightfully tell you if it's actually OK to take something since they all follow different protocols. Accidents can happen when they don't know what you're taking (because it may influence what or how much of something they end up giving you as well when you're knocked out), so it can only benefit you to be proactive about asking. And ...

doctors in New Mexico
Looking for a doctor that will prescribe pain meds will my other meds I need lortab or norco. With my hight blood pressure and other med anyone? ## Can anyone help me here? ## Hello, James! How are you? I'm sorry, but due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a pain management specialist for such medications, if you require them on a long-term ongoing basis. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Do you currently have a PCP that's treating your high blood pressure? If so, having them refer you to a specialist might be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? ## ...

How long does it take for alcohol to leave your system?
Hello everyone! I don't drink alcohol as a rule but I had a couple of beers yesterday. I'm on suboxone and was wondering if alcohol adheres to the suboxone or will it be out of my system in a few days? Please, someone tell me. ## Hi Rosie, How are you? If you had say, about three drinks in one hour, my findings suggest that it would probably take your liver roughly 3 hours to metabolize those drinks; even if it's just beer as opposed to hard liquor. Additionally, using suboxone and drinking has also reportedly been linked to severe cases of central nervous system depression, respiratory distress, falling into a coma, and even death. Definitely not something I'd take lightly if you find yourself being pressured to drink when you know you're not supposed to. I hope thi...

subutex then dilaudid ??
I used 8mg of subutex yesterday approximately 10 in the morning. It is now 4:20 in the afternoon the following day. When can i take dilaudid again and feel its effects? ## @mammonal, From what I could gather online, it'll likely depend on how long you've been using either medication for. However due to Buprenorphine's long half-life, most comments I've seen suggest waiting at least 3 days or more before interchanging between the two (basically until you feel the onset of withdrawals). This period of time should allow you to get the most out of your Dilaudid when you do end up taking it. I hope this helps!

Off Viibryd
I have been on viibryd for one pack. I just refilled the 40 for time. At the beginning it was good until I got to all I do is cry all day long every day. I pray and pray for the crying to go away. I want off viibryd asap. What is the best wayto go?. I could taper a little or a lot because I haven't been on it that long. And then just stay on the Xanax. What does anyone think? ## Usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. Although I would personally suggest that your doctor be the one who monitors you...

5mg 300mg versus 5mg 325mg of hydrocodone acetaminophen
5/300 is 1/3 the price of 5/325 of hydrocodone acetaminophen at the pharmacy. Does the pain relief compare and is it worth the difference in price? We are talking $13 versus $38 for 25 mg difference. ## It's possible they have already raised the price with hydrocodone combinations meds becoming a Schedule II meds Oct 6, 2014. Everything from manufacturing to dispensing had to have tighter security and the cost has to be passed on to the customer. ## Hello, Debra! How are you? It really depends on how well it works for you. If you don't take this all the time, then you'll likely get adequate relief from the 5/300, though I don't show a listing for that dosage being available, so it would be best to double check with your pharmacy. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has t...

kera gro hair pills
I will never ever order from Keragro ever again. They are a sketchy website that sends your "Free Trial" without telling you that you can't "simply" cancel the trial....I waited patiently for help and then was hung up on after being treated very poorly by their phone staff. Finally, I was directed to either send the bottle of pills back to them, or they could bill me the $87.00 right there. Either way, I wouldn't actually be able to try this so-called risk free trial; because it is not free! Note: This is not free! ## Funny because it happened to me as well. I've tried to talk talk to them and they hung up. Never told me it was not free oflr that I only had 14 days....its pretty terrible... I'm still fighting it though through my bank ## I have a question...

ketoprophen cyclobenzprine ointment
this is a compound made by pharmacies. It has ketoprophen, cyclobenzaprine, gabapentin and lidocaine in an ointment ## I am researching ketoprophen cyclobenzprine ointment and found this forum.

I have had a disc in my neck removed and titanium plates and screws placed in it and have had 2 large cysts removed from my L5-S1 spine.

Whats The Difference Between Percocet Morphine
I've been taking percocet 7.5/350 mg. for 3 yrs. I was recently prescribed morphine 15mg-cr and I am not getting much pain relief from the morphine. I thought and was told morphine is stronger than percocet but I got more relief from the percocet than I do from the morphine. I of course plan on telling my dr. asap but was just woundering in the meantime. ## Actually, Oxycodone is one and half times stronger than Morphine, plus the Percocet also contained Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone to work better. And not every medication works for everyone that tries it, so it could just be that the Morphine isn't effective for you and you may need to switch back to Oxycodone, or Percocet. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Morphine ER is a extended release where as Perc...
