Bactrim Side Effects
I am curious if anyone else has had any of these side effects from taking bactrim. My mouth is so swollen with blisters all inside my it has started to affect my private area as well with same symptoms. I cant eat and it burns all day long. I only took 4 pills when this started. Please help if you can. ## Rhonda, I have exactly the same reaction to this drug. Blisters on the lips, very sore tongue and blisters on genital area. ## Hi Rhonda,what is the dose you are taking and it would be to your benifit to ask your doctor for a different medication or if it were me I would only take half a dose at a time every 4 to 6 hours. ## I am not sure if you are going to get a response, since this post was made in 2007. However, these reactions do happen to some people and in such ins...

subutex suboxone
Surely I'm not the only person reading in shock and disbelief,How is it that so many people are unaware of the basic facts and information regarding bup,I am reading in horror that woman are trying to detox during pregnancy ,that is the worst option it is risking both lives,i also read a question regarding the effectiveness of mixing bup with methadone,anyone using these meds should know it causes withdrawals,that's the point of bup,i feel lucky to have drug treatment services that are free but able to stand along what is provided to private patients .Its horrible to think of pregnant woman on bup having to come onhere to ask for info and not telling their dr in fear of judgement or welfare,what is up with a woman thinking its an option to detox at five mnths preg,how doesn'...

biopose 10
Hi, I have heard only good things about Biopose 10. I would like to order 90 or so in order to try them for my problems. If they should work, I will be a regular customer. My problems stem from post-concussion syndrome after a 23 year career in the Prisons of the US.

can onfi cause soreness in hamstrings
I started onfi and my hamstrings are tight and sore, so is my sacrum area. Is this a bad side effect? ## Onfi contains the active ingredient Clobazam, it's most commonly used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, it is a benzodiazepine, so it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. And yes, it can also cause muscle pain and stiffness as a side effect. If it is very severe, you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## no more pain

Zubsolv reviews
Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me. Its only been a day so maybe it will get better. But, its suppose to be great for takin effect quicker? And it burns the shiznikks out of my mouth! ## tried it yesterday, really good in my opinion a big step forward, easy to use and you get rid of the hideous aftertaste. Haven't noticed any difference in strength. ## Much, much, much better taste and really fast dissolve time - I really can recommend Zubsolv!! ## Hello, Based on my research, Zubsolv is a medication that contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine + Naloxone. This medication is intended for the treatment of Opioid dependance. Buprenorphine is ...

percocet 325 mg/10 mg
My perscript called for 10/325 and I have for the pass 15 years been taking Watson 932. Now I have a yellow tablet by Alvogen, Inc. with a strength 325/10. Is there a difference? It doesn"t have apap in the decription. Please help me. ASAP - I feel something is wrong. ## Hi, Babydoll! I understand your confusion, but it is the same medication. The new one you've received has just been manufactured by a different company. The 325 still designates the APAP in it, which is just medical speak for Acetaminophen and the 10 stands for the amount of Oxycodone, this is a generic for Percocet. Learn more Percocet details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I take percocet 10/325 & 60mg oxycontin. I take endocet for the percocet, it's a yellow caplet with 10/325 on one...

Watson 932 Opposed To Endocet 10 325 Mg
Do any of the members of this forum have an opinion as to the effectiveness of Endocet v. Watson 932 equivelant? ## They are both supposed to contain 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, but since there can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients in generics, as well as in the fillers used, how they work for anyone can be different. While others may have gotten good or bad results from one of the other of them, the only way to find out how they work for you is to actually try it. This is a narcotic pain reliever and may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any comments or questions? ## For me personally the Watson 932 works much better than endocet 712....I can tell a BIG difference in my pain relief ## Most of...

Is it alright to drink other medicine after using nordette?

new to zubsolv 5.7 mg
i just started zubsolv and i love it. most pharmacy's did not carry it. however, it can be ordered overnight. most insurance covers it but may need a pre-aurthorization. its much easier to take then suboxan tabs or strips. you still put it under your tongue but it dissolve quickly. it did burn at first but this went away after a couple minutes and there's no gross glue aftertaste like sub. strips. the 5.7mg. is confusing at first. i contacted Orexo, the company that makes zubsolve. they explained that its simply a different formulation. you are actually absorbing 8 mg.......good luck to all !!! ## Hi Diana, I’m glad to hear that your experience with ZUBSOLV has been positive so far. I have worked in addiction treatment for several years with my area of expertise being medi...

Trying Brintellix
I have been quickly tapered off of Pristiq 200 mg....and now am on Brintellix 10 mg. (Total time of taper 2 weeks) I feel like I have the flu. I hate trying new meds and wish there was something that would make these flu like symptoms go away !!!! (Headache, queasy yet having horrible carb cravings, a weird sensation-aches) ## Hello, Mary! How are you? Most likely, you're experiencing both some withdrawal effects and some side effects, at the same time and it will probably take a couple of weeks, before they taper off and things start to improve. Learn more Brintellix details here. The Brintellix is fairly new and its side effects may include headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and dizziness….which explains most of your flu-like symptoms. Was the Pristiq no longer working for...

HI. I am Brazilian, I'm 70, 79 kilos, my blood tests are good, not practical exercises regularly, but I have a fairly busy life physically here on my farm. Although all of this, I suffer from high blood pressure since I was 25 years old. My blood pressure often is between 155 up to 184 x 103 x92. My doctor referred me CONCOR 5mg + 40mg Benicar HCT + amlodipine 5mg, but these medications do not control my blood pressure. During the day my BP ranges from 154 x 94 coming down till 106 x 61 after a very buzy day and greater work effort. Especially at night, my BP goes up drastically, reaching up to 185 x 103 so I have to take Captopril 25mg and repeat the dose after 40 minutes if not reduce BP. In sometimes used Isordil sub-tong (my BP falls rapidly to 120 x 7 and continues for some time),

anxiety brintellix
Not too sure about Brintellix yet. Very low dose (5mg) once a day for 4 days now. One positive: more alert, and depression doesn't feel as 'depressing'. Minor nausea, headache, sleep disruptive, some racing thoughts at night. Most disappointing - a persistent low level anxiety seems present and I'm on it primarily for GAD. This med seems much less compatible for me than Klonopin prn. Was hoping for better results but will stay on Brintellix 4-5 days more to see if symptoms abate. ## How are you doing today with the Brintellix?

Doing better on Brintellix
I tapered off Effexor XR and onto 10mg Brintellix. No withdrawal symptoms - seamless transition. I have been on Brintellix now for about 3 weeks. I have to say I feel more alert, my anxiety is low, my sleep is better. So far so good. I had to stop taking Tramadol and Buspar to avoid the interaction but have had no need for the Buspar since and I can just take another opiod pain killer if I need to. Did not experience the nausea that seems to be the most common side effect. Keep your fingers crossed. ## Awesome! I am very glad that it's working so well for you. Can you post back and update me? Thanks! Do you have any questions or concerns? ## Hi I will be trying Brintellix soon to get ease the depression and anxiety from tapering Effexor. How are you doing now. I need help desperatel...

generic percocet 10/325
10/325 generic percocet which is the best manufacturer for chronic pain ## Hi Em, Unfortunately because every brand/generic effects each person differently, the only honest way to go about finding out what works best, is to try out different manufacturers for yourself. That way you can also formulate your own valid opinion. What I can tell you though from reading a lot of posts on this site, is that Actavis (Formerly known as Watson) has been receiving a massive amount of complaints lately regarding the quality and efficacy of their generic Percocet tablets. So that's probably one company you'd want to steer clear from based on their recent track record. I hope this helps! ## I am a 53 year old grandmother, full-time student earning my bachelors in psychology counseling, then on...
