how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
i was taking 300 mg neurontin . 1 in am 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which effects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system. Thank You ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned t...

kvk tech vs Caraco oxycodone
My pharmacy just refilled my oxycodone 30mg Rx with kvk tech instead of Caraco mfg. They look the same and have the same 224 imprint. Does anyone know if this is the same company and same medicine or if it is indeed mfgd by two different ones. If so, what are your thoughts? Caraco has always worked well for me, do you think I should return them? I didn't realize they did this until I drove the hour home from my dr and the pharm where I fill this Rx.

does amoxicillin go bad with age?
I bought 100 amoxicillin caps about 3 years ago and stored them in a dark place,and I was curious if they would still be good to take. ## does amoxicillin expire ## don't use it. amoxicillin goes bad a year from when you bought it. ## Actually, no, it does not go bad, it just loses efficacy, so it is not as strong or as potent as when you first bought, starting from about 18 months past the manufacture date. You should never self-diagnose or self-treat with antibiotics anyway, there are so many other conditions that will not respond to them, so they have no effect, and you of course run the risk of developing an antibiotic resistant strain of something with overuse, so please see your doctor. ## first of all why do you just have the drug sitting around? did you take it and not finis...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

cymbalta and my belly
I started taking Cymbalta two months ago. While it has been so great for my depression, anxiety, and osteoarthritis and back pain, it makes me so sick to my stomach and I even coughed up three drops of blood last week. I go back to my psychiatrist tomorrow and I can't take it today. I am so tired. I automatically feel so depressed after I did not take it last night. Hopefully, there is something else that can help. ## Hello, Tonya! How are you? That sounds more like you might have an ulcer, which will likely require some medical treatment. There is also a chance that it's gastritis, which the Cymbalta may be irritating. Be sure to tell your Psychiatrist about the issue, so they can make sure that this is checked out for you to get to the root of the problem. Do you take any othe...

What Is Use Of Etirest
My husband has suddenly become afraid of taking dialysis after 6 yrs of going through with it. He was recommended to see a psychiatrist who recommended Etirest 0.5 mg.. 1tablet in the morning and 1/2 at nights. And, 45 minutes before dialysis 1 tablet. He started the before dialysis tablet only yesterday and the whole of today he is drowsy. Etirest tablet is a very small white tablet. Please advise if the dosage is right. ## Hi Yvonne, Etirest is reported to contain the active ingredient Etizolam, which is indicated for short-term treatment of anxiety or panic attacks. From what I understand, this medication is pretty strong, with one tablet being the equivalent of 10 mg of Valium. The drowsiness definitely makes sense with a medication such as this one. If I am not mistaken, Etirest sh...

i am prescribed adderall 60mg day i recieved a round pink scored pill with cor 135 never did it work
Seemed not to work as well as the orange generic, could u possibly tell me why the pink cor 135 never worked ## The tablet with the for 135 marking is a 20mg tablet. So, were you taking 3 of them a day? If you were only taking it twice a day, then that could be why it didn't work, you were only taking 40mgs daily with those tablets, rather than 60mgs. Learn more Adderall details here. ## do not use core pharma 'pink' generic. my doctor writes it on my script Teva owns all rights to manufacture adderall and the generic under 'barr' its recently acquired company. shire, the original patent owner sold rights to Teva in favor of retaining rights to Vyvanase. check FDA website Brand (Teva) 20mg Adderal is more consistent, so I take 1/2 at a time IR but still notice a huge...

Hoping Viibryd will help
I have been on 40 mg of Viibryd for 2 weeks now. Dreams every night as well. Not all nightmares but quite a few. I am still struggling massively with depression and anxiety. Panic attacks. I severely hate having to go to public places. I have lots of trouble focusing driving too. And my temper is severely scary. I snap so fast. Scared where my life is headed. ## I'm still not right. I used to be so happy and outgoing. Now i panic having to go places. Any little thing that goes wrong or a sudden change in my routine just screws my head up. Then I cannot think. I wonder if Viibryd is right for me or should I ask about Prozac? Paxil was no help either. I just want my life back. Want to be happy again. I have noticed no help with my panic attacks either.

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...

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

How are you? Why are you leaving your current doctor? Due to the new regulations that were put in place, if you require such medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see specialists.

Prednisone and abrupt withdrawl
I have been on 15mg Prednisone now for 10 months and my team of specialists want me to quit cold turkey will this cause issues for me? I tried to reduce down to 13mg a while back but suffered severe back oain and confusion after only reducing by 2mg... ## Lani --- i don't think its a good idea to go off Prednisone cold turkey. Your adrenal system needs to adjust slowly -- reducing by 11/2 to 2 mg a week would be better until your down to 5 mg. Then you might be able to stop cold turkey.

doctors that prescribe anxiety medication and muscle relaxers
I have a chronic pain condition which is Interstitial cystitis (IC) I will not take oxycodone because I was on it for 4 years and it worked great for my pain but I had to keep upping the dosage and became addicted. So now I am on a different pain medication called the Butrans patch and even though it doesn't help as much as I would like it to, it helps with my daily life. So I am able to still do normal daily things. I also have back pain, I am not sure what it is from but the patch does nothing for that either. I am looking for a doctor who would have no problem prescribing me Zanaflex. I tried it once before and it helped tremendously (along with the patch). My other problem is anxiety, my doctor was prescribing me 2mg xanax twice daily. (My mother went into the appointment and ba...
