alcohol and Gabapentin
Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema. You can read more on it here: Do you have any other questions? ## what are the bad things with this drug and alcohol? ## I've taken 3600mg of Gabapentin each day for 21 months now! I drink alcohol with them & feel ok. I would just say that the Gabapentin alone will l...

Side effects of Oxycontin
Can someone please tell me why I am having such bad reactions to OC (the usual itching, nausea and vomiting). I am vomiting 5-6 time a day, and find it extremely difficult to keep anything down, even water. I have been prescribed OC 80mg for severe disc protrusion, awaiting surgery, subsequent to a double discectomy and laminectomy (lumbar). I am aware that opioids can adversely affect people who are not tolerant, but for me, this is not the case. In the past I have had Diamorphine and Fentanyl 75 with no issues, not even withdrawal. Can anyone throw any light on this for me. They are great for the pain, but I can no longer handle the side effects.

I had surgery due to a bad pinched nerve on march of 2013 on lots of strong meds, Ive been on the suboxone for 1 month 4mg under your tougne twice a day weaned myself down to 2mg a day...I feel like I'm getting myself in a worst spot...taking this stuff any longer.I stopped my last one on July 25th @ 7pm ....PLEASE SOME HELP ME I NEED SOME ENCOURAGEMENT ## Hi NewStart, Let me say that Suboxone is a very powerful drug. I am writing you at all hours of the night due to my insomnia (my last dose was July 19th at 7pm). When I stopped, I was on 1mg a day (after 6yrs of use and 1.5 yrs of tapering down). It hasn't been easy, but it will get better, and it WILL get better for you too! Life sucks for a couple of weeks, no doubt, but just think of the freedom from dependence when it'...

Dutas T
My age is 74 and I ffelt dificulty in urination 3 year s back. For last 6 months I am taking Dutas-T and now i am ok. I urinate neither or once in night without any trouble. Should I stop taking Dutas-T. Is it harmful to take even for a long time? ## dutas t contains dutasteride which can cause prostate cancer. and because urinary symptoms are masked by dutas t. the detection of cancer can be delayed. please talk to your urologist about this. if the benefits are more than the side effects . then u can continue with dutas t. ## I am 67 years old & have been prescribed Dutas t for 6 months, daily one dose at night for treating BPH. Is this tablet a steroid. Dr told me its harmless but from Internet I understand it has high risk of side effects. What is the percentage of risk, is this ...

Generic Oxycontin Prescription
Yesterday my doctor wrote me a prescription for "Oxycontin 20mg tablets" When I got to shoppers I was told they no longer make that medication. I was looking to get the generic oxycontins that I know are now available in Ontario. My doctor does not know much about this medication, and I am curious if she needs to write the prescription out differently. (I am thinking the generic name for oxycontin is oxycodone) Does anyone know for sure? As I have an appointment at the end of January and would be able to get the generic oxycontins that help relieve my chronic pain. I just need to be able to tell my doctor what the generic name is. Thank you in advance for all your help. ## Hi Mac, Oxycodone and Oxycontin are actually a little bit different. Oxycodone is an immediate release vers...

Does ANYONE know if generics are coming back? I still haven't paid off last years loan . I'll have to borrow again. I have had surgery again this year. Nearly died. (was in intensive care for 9 days. Drs. tried to give me moraphine. I have later stage COPD, my breathing got so bad. They called my family in because they thought I was going to die. They said they couldn't control my pain. I was blacked out. Don't remember anything. But they finally gave me oxycontin and I got better. I'm alive. But I am in so much pain I don't know if that's good or not. I can't afford any...

Out Of My Metoprolol What Can I Take Now

If it were me, I'd consider calling your local pharmacy to see if they have any brand name or generic metoprolol that they could supply you with until you can get your full prescription. For future reference, I recommend calling your pharmacy in advance to make sure you will have your next prescription filled and ready to go before you run out- I hope that makes sense!

Tramadol withdrawal terrible stomach pain
Hello. I have searched the web and can't seem to find a problem like mine while coming off tramadol. I have horrible stomach burning and pain that extends down both sides of my rib cage. It happened once before when I was coming off tramadol and you think I would have learned to stay away from this poison. Has anyone else had pain and terrible burning down both sides of their rib cage when coming off tramadol? This is day 2 for me. I am hoping it goes away soon ## I think it's safe to say that Tramadol withdrawal symptoms can be quite similar to the side effects of those who are still taking the drug. According to the mayo clinic, severe abdominal or stomach pain is reported to be a normal, but serious side effect of Tramadol (that should be reported to your doctor). I don't...
