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.

generic drug comment
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be careful with generic forms of medications. Doctor's, Pharmacy's, Pharmaceutical companies and ESPECIALLY insurance companies will not always tell you that the formula has been changed when they transferred to generic, in fact I have had a Pharmacist and my Insurance company flat out lie to me. I nearly ended up in the emergency room, and nearly had a car accident when Watson pharmaceuticals purchased Avasta Pharmaceuticals; then dropped the Watson name (I suspect because they have multiple legal suits filed against them) Avasta altered the formula of 10/325 Oxycodone which I use for horrific Fybromyalgia pain. Because of the side affects, I nearly ended up in the ER, the disorientation almost caused me to have a car accident. ## Ellen, I have Fibromyalgia...

tcl370 on one side and blank the other white it a oblong shape what is that used for
WANTING TO KNOW WHAT THIS PILL IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR? CAN YOU PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION? ## Hi Joann, Although I haven't found any photos to verify this specifically, someone in another thread here had claimed them to be generic Excedrin tablets, containing a combination of Acetaminophen + Caffeine + Aspirin, for headache relief. And from what I could gather myself, I believe it's being manufactured by a company called Time-Cap Labs, Inc., who makes pills with similar markings. I hope this helps to answer your question!

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Oxycodone In Chicago Illinois
I live in Chicago, Illinois and I have been on Oxycodone 30mg for 3 years. My doctor retired and I haven't been able to find a doctor since to prescribe them. Can you help me and give me a doctors name that will prescribe this medication in the Chicagoland area... ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors that will prescribe any given medication. And you may be creating part of the problem yourself, if you're calling new doctors and asking them to prescribe a specific medication. Most doctors will see that as being drug seeking behavior and won't even let you get in the door. The best thing you can do is to set up an appointment with a new doctor and then just make sure they get a full copy of your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Learn more Oxyc...

hydrocodone 5 325
Had a tooth extracted took two 500mg of Tylenol can I take a 5 325 Vicodin three hours later ## Yep drink water ## Hi Mark! You just need to be careful of the amount of Tylenol ( acetaminophen) you take. It gives you instructions on the Tylenol bottle as to how much you can take. Remember that the Vicodin has 325 mgs in it too, from what you said. ## If you take more than 650 mg of tylenol, you have to wait at least 6 hrs before taking any more tylenol, that includes the Vicodin. Do not take more than 1,000 tylenol every 6 hrs or more than 4,000 tylenol is a 24 hr period.

lorazepam extended release .05mg
How can you tell if a .05 mg of larazepam is extended release vs. non extended release? ## Hi Anita, Based on my research, Lorazepam is not available in extended-release form so you shouldn't have anything to worry about in that regard. :) Although, in the event that something might be extended release, you could always just look up the imprint on the tablet to determine those details. (That is of course provided that you obtained it from a legitimate pharmacy and has a marking for identification?). I hope this helps!

Estratest generic on indefinite back order!
Could this mean it may no longer be produced? I had a complete hysterectomy in 2000 and nothing else has worked for me! HELP! ## Hi Msgirl, May I ask where you found information stating that Estratest Generic is on an indefinite backorder? I couldn't personally find any information claiming that it's no longer unavailable. However, I did find out that there was a shortage of Estratest's active ingredients: "Esterified Estrogens" and "Methyl testosterone" - but according to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, that issue was resolved in 2011. Source: Please let me know if you come across any more information. Thanks! ## Just today, my WalMart Pharmacist could only fill 7 pills. Then my...

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. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

Zubsolv reviews
Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me. Its only been a day so maybe it will get better. But, its suppose to be great for takin effect quicker? And it burns the shiznikks out of my mouth! ## tried it yesterday, really good in my opinion a big step forward, easy to use and you get rid of the hideous aftertaste. Haven't noticed any difference in strength. ## Much, much, much better taste and really fast dissolve time - I really can recommend Zubsolv!! ## Hello, Based on my research, Zubsolv is a medication that contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine + Naloxone. This medication is intended for the treatment of Opioid dependance. Buprenorphine is ...
