Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss ?
I have been on Lyrica for about 8 months now and I am having fantastic results. My dr is trying to increase my dosage and I have been doing it in 50 mg increments. I am up 100 more now in a month, for a total dosage of 400mg. I find that I have very bad recall and loss of my vocabulary during conversation. It eventually goes away, but I was wondering if anyone else has this? If it keeps up, I just may have to drop back down 50mg until I get used to it? That seemed to work that last time I had to raise it.BTW, I have nerve pain in my ribcage.(not caused by Shingles) Karel ## It is a possible reaction to this med, it is listed as a severe side effect that you should see your doctor about if you experience it. You can see it in the monograph listing here: Lyrica Info Click Here Have you co...

eye drops with oxymetazoline
replacement for Visine LR ## PLEASE IF THERE IS A REPLACEMENT FOR VLR, LET US KNOW ALL THE DETAILS OF THE EYE DROPS ASAP!!!! ## From what I can discover, it seems it has been discontinued, however, on their website, they list the active ingredient as being Oxymetazoline. Ironically, it is not used in any of their other products. I am not finding a lot of over the counter products that contain it, however, Claritin Eye Allergy Relief Drops have it and so does Ocuclear. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hey, I just found Visine LR at my local Walgreens today! Perhaps they've resumed production. ## Not all Walgreens carry the visine LR, which means that they are just selling what stock they have left. Not sure why visine stopped making this brand. I don't like anything els...

what do a 215 taste like if chewed?
Just got some light blue a 215s but think they may be fake. I formerly took 50 to 60 My's of hydrocodone orally per dose so I took 2 of the 30s orally with NO affect. So the next day I chewed one and it had no taste at all. I know from chewing other dros and ocs that there is normally some type of taste. Any advice appreciated as y'all know how costly these are.

Tramadol Used for the first time 7 days before Bilateral knee replacement
Was given this to replace OTC pain meds. too 2 at 2pm, and a further 2 at bedtime Alarm got me up at 4 to go to work, on getting out of bed got cold sweats, had a shower to pull myself together. Drove 5 miles stopped at gas station to vomit due to motion sickness I think. got to office lay on the floor of my office and slept for 2 hours. Was woken by a co worker, on getting up off the floor again vomited. Sipped week tea and by 1230 was "ok" to drive home, there I slept for 4 hours and was spacy until midnight. took till mid morning the following day for me to feel human again. Doctor forgot to tell me to take 1 to see how they work for me. Stopped taking them, surviving on no pain medication because the pain is better than the Tramadol solution in my opinion

can i take methadone and lipozene together
I take 165 mgs of methadone everyday and i have gained alot of weight since. I got Lipozene to lose the weight. Is it safe to take them together?? ## Hello, Lori! How are you? Lipozene is a supplement, not an actual medication, so it has not been studied to check for possible interactions with prescription drugs. Have you checked with your doctor? They may have some idea of whether or not it would be safe. ## I would like to know if I could take lipozene and methadone together, I am currently taking 80 mgs of methadone a day. I need to know if I could add lipozene and methadone together? ## Wondering if you ever found out an answer because I have the same question I am on 90 mg of methadone and just started taking Lipozene. And I'm just wondering if they would effect each other ## I...

methadone and morphine together
MY HUSBAND HAS BLADDER CANCER AND WAS PRESCRIBED 20 MG OF METHADONE EVERY MORNING. HE WAS ALSO GIVEN MORPHIN SULFATE 60 MGS TWICE A DAY. HOW SHOULD THESE MEDICINES BE TAKEN. ## Debra,i dont know why his dr. prescibed both Methadone and Morphine.The Meth. is known to block or cancel out the effects of the Morphine. ## i take 30mg 6 times aday plus 135mg of methadone a day for stomach cancer pain is it safe what are the dangers ## First of all methadone is not a blocker. People mistake it for suboxone because they are both used in opiate withdraw treatment. They first made methadone in world war II...when China cut Germany off from poppy trade. Hitler had his science goons make somthing to substitute opiate pain killers and Bam methadone is born. First used as a pain killer for many years...

My Question
are you aloud to be in heat while taking this cause i went tanning and im itching all over but i dont know if its that or an allergic reaction ## Hi Sierra, I did some research to see if Vyvanse causes photosensitivity and did read that photosensitivity reactions have been reported by people with high blood pressure, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood cholesterol, and multiple sclerosis. If photosensitivity is not the problem, you could simply be allergic to the medication. I would speak about this with your doctor in your next appointment. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Vyvanse Details I hope this helps! ## I saw a neurolist for my back have herniated L5-L4 herniated back disc, the Dr. asked me if I was on suboxon or methadone. I don't like being trea...

small round pink pill labelled phentermine
the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentamine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pill ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was p...
