Fentermina and Acxion
Just wonder what type of medication this was? ## Now I don't know what Acxion is but I do know that Fentermina is the same as Phentermine, a diet pill which reduces the appetite. Maybe Acxion is something along the same lines? Good Luck! ## I WAS TAKING ACXION (FENTERMINA FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND LOST 59 LBS IN JUST 4 MONTHS. YUP I SURE DIID FROM A SIZE 12 TO A SIZE 2. I FEEL GREAT AND I AM SO ENERGETIC. I AM ALWAYS ON THE GO GO GO. I AM NO LONGER TAKING THE PILLS, BUT I WOULD BUY THEM ACROSS THE BORDER, JUST 28.00 FOR THE BOX OF 30 PILLS, 1 PILL A DAY. GOOD-LUCK..... ## Is this diet pill for women only ? Acxion Fentermina ## How can i get the acxion pills? ## In the US, this type of med is prescription only, so you would need to see your doctor to get it. ## I also use Acxion and get...

Fentanyl Patches, Lots of questions, Please read for me ~~
Hi All ~ Thanks for reading and possibly helping me out ! First a quick summery, 2 failed back surgery's, L3, L4, & L5 ~ 6 bolts and screws, except, in L5, apparently, I have a screw floating, not attached. 2 Doctors, saw the X-Ray, neither of them, seemed concerned. It's not floating, it has been in the same position for 2 years now. The last 2 1/2 months, actually, I have to see him, every 22 days another story, another day, as to why, the short leash. Anyway last 2 1/2 months, I am suffering so much more, my normal pain level, (which is when I am at my best) is a 4, I don't recall a day, that's been pain free for me. But I can't get to my level, I am now 6,7, and sometimes 8 ~ I can't stand longer than 15 minutes TOPS ~ On top of my normal back pain, I hav...

im on 2mg oxycodone will withdrawal be bad for me
I have weened down to 2mg oxycodone every 6 hours how bad will I feel when I stop in a few days ## At that low of a dose, the withdrawal and rebound effects should be minimal, but much of it really depends on your body and how it reacts. How long have you been down to this low of a dosage? Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? The rebound type effects usually involve pain that may be worse than the pain you were taking it to treat and the withdrawal effects can include nausea, dizziness and diarrhea. ## I have taken oxycodone 20-30mgs daily for 3 months. I took 15 mgs for 3 days, I took 5 mgs this am. My question is I want to maintain the 5 mgs for 5-6 days and then come off. How bad will the withdrawals be

EST Estrgn Methtest .625/1.25 mg
I am a 42 yr old woman and had a complete hysterectomy in October 2008. Within 1 year of my surgery, I began experiencing extreme hair loss. This November, my doctor prescribed EST ESTRN METHTEST .625/1.25 mg (in addition to the ESTRADIOL .5mg that I was already taking) to help reduce the hair loss. I was wondering if this medication is used for this purpose (as well as it's other benefits)? My mother is a breast cancer survivor (2009) & I am concerned about increasing my chances, by taking all these medications. Is it safe, or should I just accept my balding? ## This medication is a combination of Esterified Estrogens and Methyltestosterone, they are used for hormone replacement, to help with the symptoms of menopause or a deficiency in these hormones. Thus, yes, if the hair lo...

How are you? Yes, progesterone is vital to both a normal menstrual cycle and your ability to get pregnant. I can't promise you that it will work, but for the best possible outcome, it would be wise to follow your doctor's instructions. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I haven't had my period in a while now, can't remember the last time so lets say around 6-7 months ago.. just recently I was prescribed a medroxyproge...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

Xanax refill early
Hi I live in California and I have been going to the same CVS for years.. I cash pay.. Recently I have been going through an extremly rough time.. very serious issues with regards to one of my children.. I am devestated.. CVS has always had no issues refilling my xanax prescription early.. usually around 7-10 days.. My dr called in a refill early on June 26 with no questions asked.. My next doctors appt. he hand written my xanax prescription on July 7th.. I held onto it.. and my husband dropped it off at pharmacy on July 18th and did not specify that I needed it that day.. I actually was surprised when I got a text notification saying it was ready an hour later.. I have a refill left and when I logged onto my CVS account earlier it had a message that said cannot be filled until Aug. 7th...

Muscle or joint pain
I have been using fenofibrate for about 4 months. About that same time I started having sharp pain in my left hip area. I thought it might be a hip problem but it seems to be more like a muscle in the top of my buttocks to my very lower back. At times it seems to be more pronounced in the front side like my upper groin area. Sometime the pain lessens some if I am doing more physical activities during the day like mowing the lawn and working around the garden. I have also just in the last couple of days been having severe soreness in my right shoulder deltoid area. I just saw that the fenofibrate can cause some muscle aches. I stopped taking it a few days ago (my Dr.told me to anyway when the last prescription ran out) My question is if these are side effects from the fenofibrate how lon...

Spiriva weight gain side effects
I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

My father is 45 and his doctor has prescribed him an Ecosprin AV 75. He has strong family history of heart diseases. He has cholesterol level is at borderline.He has normal BP. Can this ecosprin AV 75 help my father in his heart disease? ## Hello, Emerald! How are you?

My son has taken 250 Depakote twice daily for a while now. The tablets have always been a pinkest/peachy color. The last time we refilled it, the pharmacy gave us tablets that are big and blue. Who makes these and are they the exact same as he has taken all along?

yellow oval blank on one side and L476 on the other ## This is an over the counter medication manufactured by LNK International, they make various items that are sold as generics or store brands, however, since OTC items are not regulated like prescription drugs, there is no database that lists them all, so I cannot find an identification on this.

methadone dr
i'm looking 4 a dr who can & will prescribe methadone i've been on 9yrs for chronic pain but cannot find new dr. is buying on the internet from out of country all i can do? i live in greenwood in ## Hello, Julie! How are you? There are 2 reasons you may be having a problem finding a new doctor. The first is if you're calling new doctors and asking them if they'll prescribe it, they will view that as drug seeking behavior and, in most cases, they won't even let you get in the door. And the next also has to do with asking them about, if they possibly think it's for addiction treatment, they have to say no, since private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for that. In other worse, regardless of which one is applicable, you need to just set up an appointm...
