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...

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. ...

oblong brown pill no markings
found a soft cap brown elliptical pills with no markings in a bag outside the car of my daughters friend... any ideas what it could be? haven't been able to locate it on drug finder. ## I found 2 of these pills under my bed. Also wondering what they could be ## brown capsule no markings ## Tan oblong pill with greenish black liquid insipide capsule ## If there are no markings, it is difficult to track down what they are. Approximately how big are any of them that have been found? If they're tiny, I wonder if they may be Marinol and the marking is just too small to see. Since it's derived from THC, it's commonly diverted and abused in the mistaken belief that people might get high from it. Learn more Marinol details here. ## i have the same pills and its a diet pill, but ...

endocet vs oxycodone
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS AND MY DRUG STORE RAN OUT AND GAVE ME ENDOCET ?SAID IT WAS THE SAME THING BUT MY BODY TELLS ME THAT IT'S NOT THE SAME.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS CHANGE? ## in reply to jim, i have to agree, i have been taking oxycodone for a while now, and got a new script for endocet, and it does not do anywhere near as much as the last prescription did... ## Well, I am not sure what you were on previously, since you just say Oxycodone, but Endocet is a combination drug containing both Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. The reason you may be having a problem, however, is due to the fact that generic meds ARE allowed, by law, to differ from name brands by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%. They also DO NOT HAVE TO BE EXACTLY IDENTICAL. I know the doctor...

methadone m 57 71
Can I take the pill m 57 71 after I have use herion in the same day ## Dear London, I really wouldn't mix the 2 together. Wait until u r withdrawing b 4 u take the meth. U will get the best results that way. It can b very dangerous 2 mix the 2. Not 2 mention meth is an opiate, but, also prevents u from feeling the effect of other opiates. ## @London, if you're looking for a second opinion I will say that I do agree with the previous comment, in that, it may be a good idea to wait it out a little longer and not mix the two together without knowing how it's going to effect you. This may or may not help, but according to an article I found on, A 5mg dose of H is said to be equivalent to approximately 20mg of orally ingested methadone. However, the article goes on to sta...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

Nitrofuran Monohyd Macro100mg
I am on day 3 OF NITROFURAN MONOHYD MACRO 100MG 100 mg for urinary track infection every 12hrs, I have problems with my stomach and have been prescribed DICYCLOMINE 10MG/5ML. (1/2 hr before meals) Is safe to take while taking NUTRIFURAN? ## Hi Virnia, Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Nitrofurantoin and Dicyclomine. So just going off that information alone, I don't think there should be any problems using the two together (outside of each medication's own general side effects). However, if you still have any reservations about taking them, it may be best to call your doctor up and verify that it's ok with him as well. Was it the same doctor who prescribed you the Nitrofurantoin, that also give you the script for Dicyclomine?

How to get off Suboxone successfully - Step by step
If you are struggling with getting off Suboxone successfully, you may want to take the time to read this. I have read a ton of hype about Suboxone being impossible to get off. How the withdrawal symptoms carry on for days, even months. Below, I would like to encourage you and let you know that it can be done. I AM LIVING PROOF YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS FEAT!!! I have been free of Suboxone and all other drugs and alcohol for 3 months and I have never felt better in my life!!! THE WAY THAT SUCCESS HAPPENED FOR ME AND CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU: For months I read Suboxone blog sites in the effort to gather some element of hope that would encourage me to make the “jump” to get off my final 1/8 tab (1mg) of Suboxone. At the point I started reading these blog sites, I had come down from 2.5...

I was discharged from pain management cuz my exwife wrote the doc n said I was selling my pills my urines were positive for opiates he still discharge
I need to find find a docor but noone will treat me I was doing fine on mscontin 40 mg three times a day and ms contin 15 mg a day for breakthrough pain I've never sold my meds I need them I can barely stand up straight my wife has to get me out of bed put me to bed I've lost 4 jobs in 9 years.. please what can I do? ## Hi ed, Sorry to hear about what happened between you and your ex wife. I'm no relationship expert here, but if I could suggest anything at all, the first thing I would personally do in such a situation is completely cut any ties with your ex, since that's where the problem seems to be stemming from. If they decided to keep her letter on file under your name, then it may be a good idea to really try and work with other doctors to regain some level of trust...

Im Marina Im 24 years old and a mother of 2 beautiul little boys. From the years 2006-2007 i was heavily addicted to Oxy 80 and eventually started doing herion. I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's. In June 2009 i was completly off of the methadone that first day that i was on 0Mgs I went through extreme withdrawls i went through things that i would never wish upon my worst enemy! i stayed that way for a day and a half and decided to go to a suboxone doctor. He put me on 32 mgs a day which i thought was pretty high of a dose but he explained to me that methadone withdrawls was worst then any other withdrawls. so i trusted him.

fake hydrocodone pills
Has anyone received Blue Watson 10/500 pills from any pharmacies on line or over the phone. I got 90 that look real, but have the effect of a vitamin. Ripped off again. ## I think I was similarly scammed. The color was greenish, not blue like the regular Watson 10/500 and tasted salty. I had been called 20 times and finally succumbed. Is this your experience too. The phone number was a 305 exchange ## I purchased Norcos over the phone. Came in a vacuumed plastic bag. They were blue with WATSON 540 printed on them. The looked real but when you take them it is like you are on valium, you don't get pain relief. Purchased from a 321 exchange. Anyone else with the same experience? ## I have also received fake pills from a 321 exchange. They are not real and will not exchange or refund yo...

chantix side effects
How long does chantix stay in your system, could it still be effecting me afer 9 months? ## No! There are no medications that stay in your system for that long. The only way you would still be feeling effects was if it had caused some type of permanent body/organ damage, which I am sure would have been detected long ago. Chantix contains the active ingredient Varenicline,it is a stop smoking aid. Common side effects during use can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and abnormal dreams. Did you have any other questions? ## You say that no medication can stay in your system that long. Hmmn, interesting concept. So no medicine/drug can stay in your system that long. So people who took a medicine/drug that affected their brain lets say back in the 60's or even possibly now of any sai...
