Diclogem Pain Killer Tablet
I am 4 months pregnant, I had a toothache badly, can I take a Diclogem painkiller to relief from the toothache . ## What ended up happening with your tooth? Did you take the Diclogem? It contains the active ingredient Diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and no, these are usually not advisable during pregnancy.

And then second after taking it.. My legs was like bit senceless.. Why is it so??? ## Am 5weeks pregnant and am having back pain seriously can i take diclofenac or arthrotec.thank you in advance

I've just been on prednisone treatment and I can't seem to shed the pounds I gained due to taking the steroids for a temporal diseased I suffered. I was wondering if taking Obleclox would help me feel less hungry and with a healthy diet and exercise be able to go back to my original weight. Does anyone know if taking this pill is safe? Thanks for your help!! ## Obeclox contains the active ingredient Clobenzorex, which is available in the U.S. only by prescription. There is no medication that is really safer than any other, they all come with risks and dangers. For some people it has been very effective for weight loss, but not for everyone, which is the way any medication works. This is a stimulant that is used to help suppress appetite. It can cause side effects, such as: nause...

Wheres a chatroom? Where we csn all talk?ive come from 110 mls yo 25 mls of methadone on own, need help and suggestions, etc.ehat has worked for others ## Hi Faith! Just to let you know, you're not alone going through this. Many of people have gone through this including myself. I was on 110mgs of methadone and tapered down to 24mgs. I was on methadone due to pain and addiction issues. My problem was when I got down to 24mgs I was going through some pretty bad withdrawals. My doctor prescribed me suboxone to help with the withdrawals. The main thing is to taper VERY slowly so you feel the least bit of withdrawals. Methadone is a very strong medication and some people require a life time maintenance dose. I hope everything works out for you. You've come so far. Any other question...

oralcon contraceptive pills questions
Hey there , im not 100% sure on how oralcon works . Do you just keep taking the white pill until your period starts(even if its more then 21 days) and then move to the red(when it starts) or take the pack accordingly even if your period has not finished or started as yet , i have been taking the white pill for a month and 2 weeks and i still have not started my period, is this because i have not started the red pill even though im not on my period?

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.

kvk tech oxycodone 30mg IR
I was taking activis 30mg IR for a long time. It worked really well on pain with minimal narcotic effect. Now they only have KVK brand oxycodone. This is by far the worst medication for pain I have ever had. It has a strong long lasting narcotic effect with no pain relief at all. I'm taking it back to my Dr and getting a new perscription. Does anyone know who carries Activis and/or a brand that is comparable? ## Hi Rong, I find it interesting that the KVK tech is working better for you than the Actavis brand, because many people on here are actually taking the time out to file complaints with the FDA about the lack of efficacy coming from Actavis's other pain medications - (namely Percocet). However, when it comes to finding out what's in stock, a lot of pharmacies aren'...
