WHAT DRUG PLAN WILL PAY FOR COVARYX MONTHLY WHEN YOU ARE ON MEDICARE. ## I've experienced the same with $$ expense and not covered. I'm currently investigating and will let you know! ## Hi Deborah, It seems to me like it would probably be best to just contact your local benefits administrator or dial Medicare's number directly at 1-800-633-4227 for more specific details involving the coverage of certain plans they offer. According to Medicare's website, you can also get personalized information about which plans cover your medication via the following page: medicare.gov/find-a-plan Will look forward to any updates Post #1 has as well! Hope this helps!

liquid acetaminophen , red liquid, 325\5 mg
2 Replies RSS
How much of the red liquid hyrdrocodone 325\5 mg would equal to three 1,000s norcos? ## Each teaspoons equals hydrocodone 5 mg /acetaminaphen 325 mg. ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? What BL has stated is correct, unless the label specifies otherwise. As to the Norco you mentioned, there is no Norco available that contains 1,000mgs of anything. The maximum dosage currently available on the market contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Norco was actually the name brand for a lower dose of this analgesic combination, so if you were taking it, then you were most likely taking 5/325mgs. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth an...

Weight gain and depression AFTER getting off Pristiq
1 Reply RSS
I weaned myself off Pristiq over the summer and felt fine for a couple months. Then I gained 40 POUNDS in what couldn't have been more than two months. Waist grew 2 inches during that time. Now it's almost March and I've been more depressed over the last couple of months than ever in my life. I rarely have any energy and can't lose the weight. The reason I weaned myself off is because I mistakenly thought I didn't need it any more (the doctor who prescribed it said it "teaches" the brain how to produce whatever it does after a couple years and you don't need it any more). I'm going back on it and praying I feel like myself again - this is a miserable existence. Also, I haven't been able to find weight gain as a symptom of discontinuing Pristiq. ##...

Day 15 of Suboxone withdrawal. What the heck?
1 Reply RSS
I'm on day 15 of no Suboxone. I took a low dose of 1/2 mg a day, if needed, for 18 mos. I never took more than that at any time. I jumped & didn't taper b/c I felt w/d at 1/4 mg anyway. It's not getting any better & I'm beginning to wonder if things will ever swing upward. My RLS is pathetic. It's even in my arms & I feel like flailing my hands, as if it'll escape out my fingers. I can't stand for it to be quiet & I'm so nervous every single second of the day. I can't relax, let alone sleep. However, I'm fortunate to have access to Neurontin & my dentist husband gave me an Rx for Tramadol today. (Hard to imagine this would actually be worse if I didn't have these.) I'm eating well, keeping myself hydrated, using Benadry...

Cyclobenzaprine a opiate?
2 Replies RSS
My boy friend is coming off of pain killers , higher doses other known as oxys if he takes these 10mg yellow pills will this mess with him? He is on day 4 ## Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) is not an opiate, it is a muscle relaxer. ## @Vg (original poster), Please excuse me If I'm misinterpreting your post, as it's very difficult to make complete sense of certain details mentioned within your description re: "My boy friend is coming off of pain killers , higher doses other known as oxys". However, IF your boyfriend was ever intending on taking Cyclobenzaprine with Oxycodone, I personally wouldn't recommend doing so, since there are known drug interactions between the two medications. Specifically, causing an increased risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, difficulty b...

PERCOCET M357 VS PERCOCET 512
18 Replies RSS
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERCOCET M357 AND PERCOCET 512 ## M357 is NOT percocet, it is a different class of narcotic pain reliever called lorcet or hydrocodone. it is a generic version and not as strong as a perc 5/12 ## That is correct, M357 contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen and 5mgs of Hydrocodone, so this is not an equivelent to Percocet, but, as stated above, a generic for Vicodin or Lortab. It is still a narcotic pain reliever, but not as strong as those containing Oxycodone. This pill marked 512 contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 5mgs of Oxycodone and is a generic for Percocet. Side effects are similar for both and can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Thx ## Hi Jazz, Don,t know if it,s covered or not. Have you tried going to the suboxone site and entering your area code to find sub drs?

1.2 cm dia. shiny round pill + dk orange one side - Imprint G-56 (no 2 anywhere) and light orange or dk yellow/gold NO imprint on other side.

I found this listed as containing 500mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a generic or store brand of Extra Strength Tylenol. It is commonly used to treat pain and fever.
