Spiriva weight gain side effects
I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

blue capsule 3060 ????
I got the blue 20 mg 3060 capsule what of i took it either 70mg Vyvanse? I truly hope that they work. from the bad reviews I'm afraid to even try one. someone please give me advice ## Are you referring to the blue capsule with the "R 3060" imprint? That's closest match I'm seeing online, and it reportedly contains 20mgs of time-released mixed Amphetamine salts, manufactured by Actavis. I don't know who told you it was 70mgs of Vyvanse, but if you got them from overseas or off other shady dealers there's no telling what might be in it, and that's just a risk that you should've thought about before buying it. I would probably take it as a sign that your body is naturally putting up its own defense to save you from taking something that you shouldn't...

Suprep
Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in florida
looking for Dr who will continue my current regimine without fear. 3 mg a day 1x3 xanax and 90mg a day methadone or equivalent Oxy codone been for 10 years same dose and am moving to Ocala area . Never had issues just pain chronic with Psoriatic Arthritis . cancer and back nerve damage . Please help/// ## Hello, Billy! How are you doing? You're really not going to find a doctor to just prescribe them and not worry about it. That's just not possible, anymore. They are held responsible for their prescribing practices, now. The best thing to do would be to set up an appointment with a PCP in your new area and then have them refer you to someone for pain management. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, ...

I have "Idiopathic Small Fiber Peripheral Neuropathy" and have been fighting this HORRIFFIC PAIN since Jan 24,2012 and it took till April meeting with my Neurologist (I lived in Atlanta) to have an EMG and then a Biopsy to verify my illness. Then they ran it felt like a million test over and over and I passed all so they could not find the underlying cause so it's spreading quick and PAIN is HARSH!

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon
suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.

white oblong pill a333 what is it
yeah it is supposed to be a percocet but feels more like a hydrocodone to me ## I agree. It feels like a hydrocodone to me too. It doesn't work nearly as well as the generic Watson 932 I have been taking for pain. ## The pill marked "A333" is in fact listed as generic Percocet (10/325), but I think many others would agree with you that its effects aren't quite up to par with what you would normally expect from this medication. Ever since Actavis bought out Watson, there seems to have been a downgrade in the sheer potency/efficacy of all their pain medications. The FDA also allows a pretty significant variability (20-25%) of the amount of active ingredients found in generic medications. So one scenario could be that Actavis is taking advantage of that and putting the lowe...

round pink scored one side letter k inside triangle on other
Small pink round with letter k inside a triangle one side and scored on other ## I'm sorry, but so far I haven't been able to find anything that matches this in any of the prescription drug databases that I've checked. This leads me to believe that it's most likely some type of over the counter product. Where did you find it? Some products are regional, so knowing a general location may help to narrow it down. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## I would never say for certain, but Im betting it is not only a foreign, (south american pharm-manufacturer) and fits with Ativan 2 mg descriptor. I have seen it before. But the color can change from time to time. Is this pill scored, one side, round, small, with a triangle and a K inside the triangle? How would you describ...

Question regarding brintellix, tramadol, and gabapentin
I we recently put on an antidepressant called Brintellix 10mg. However i have been on tramadol 50mg 2x a day for over 2 years and 300mg gabapentin 3x a day for 2 years. As well as norco 7.5 3x day. I've only been on brintellix a week and nervous that maybe that's too much serotonin medicine. Does that make sense? ## Yes, it does make sense and it is a possible risk. Serotonin syndrome can be very dangerous. Have you had any other symptoms aside from the tiredness? The main concern is the Tramadol with the Brintellilx, mixing them does carry a strong warning about the possible dangers and advises that alternative medications be used. ## I take similar meds as you. Been on Brintellix 10 mg a few weeks, also 100 mg Zoloft (down from 200mg). I stopped tapering off Zoloft because I f...

Medicine to become fat without side effect
Am 20yrs of age but i was fat but i have become slim i want to come back to my normal body ## Hello, Pinklady! How are you? Trying to get fat is really not a good idea, it's not healthy. Being overweight is actually very dangerous, because it places severe strain on your heart and lungs. Additionally, all medications carry the risk of causing side effects, you're not going to find any that don't. How tall are you and how much do you weight? ## I Am aged 26yrs i was fat but i have become slim i want to get back to my normal body but weighing 70kgs now which medicine is appropriate to use.

vitamin c capsules how to use
I opened 3 vitamin C capsules. Squeezed them into a little dish, with a probiotic emptied into the mixture as well. Had a breakout between my jaw/chin area due to 'that time of the month' .... will let you know how it goes! ## Hi Ashley, I've also heard that starting your menstrual cycle can cause acne around the chin/jaw area. So if you had a breakout it may not have been associated with the vitamin C capsules at all. I don't know if that's what you were getting at and were concerned by it, but thought I'd mention it anyways. However, regarding your query on "how to use vitamin c capsules", the typical method of administration is to simply take them orally as the directions state. But I do know you can also empty them into water a chug it take way too. I...

It is an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant, so using it just to gain weight is NOT a good idea, it can compromise your immune system and cause serious complications. ## side effects of decilone forte ## "If dexamethasone is given orally or by injection (parenteral) over a period of more than a few days, side-effects common to systemic glucocorticoi...
