too close for me
I was given a script for zomax in 1983, for bursitis. It worked wonders with no side effects. A few months later my bursitis flared up. I still had my zomax, so I took one. Within a minute I new I was in trouble. I was alone with my 2 small children and my sisters 2 children. I called my parents and could barely speak. They got me to the hospital in less than 10 minutes from the time I called them. I was in anaphylactic shock, they had to give me a shot in my chest. I don't remember what else they did to me. I spent 3 days in the hospital. Just because you take something and have no problem, doesn't mean you won't develope an allergy to it later on. I didn't find out they took it off the market until sometime in the 90's. That's the closest to death I've ever be

I've had trouble with my since I was very young. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was in 4th grade. Now my curve has worsened, 52 degrees curved. Plus my disks are crumbling. They don't want to do surgery due to my age and the complications associated with the surgery. They have told me there's nothing they can do for me. I am taking Cymbalta, Celebrex, Lyrica, Tizadine, Tramadol 200 my time release pill. I am having really pain more so than ever due to the curve.

forum for pain dr
Found a great pain Dr.in Dallas,Texas.. His name is Dr. Salvatore Campos. He is on Buckner and Garland Red. Very good Dr. for pain. Thank you. Jerry ## What did he prescribe to you? Was he kind and take time with you, or just rush you right out? I need a Dr to work with me that will give me what I need based on condition and pain level. ## Yes he gave me my oxycontin and Duragesic Patches. He spends a lot of time with you. Take your records with you or have them sent. Also I took my meds that I am taking..since he did not have my records yet.He is very kind and caring. I was very impressed with his bedside manner. Good Drs.are hard to find now.

Is this normal to take this med for 5 yrs? I really never even knew she had adhd? In fact I really dont know why she is taking it or even started. Her phyc. precribed it to her , he also prescribed viibryd which is a ssri. She also takes precocet 10/325 for back pain, i am not sure how many she take, but she has pills located in 3 locations of the house, so she does not always take 4 a day. Then she has a lipoderm patch, and has acess to a fentonal patch also, not sure how much she uses this. Then she takes klonipin to sleep.

Severe stomach pain and diarrhea with Lamictal
I have been on 25mg Lamictal for three days. I have had terrible stomach pain and severe diarrhea for three days. Has anyone else experienced this? Do the side-effects go away? (Not sure Lamictal is causing this because I've just returned from a trip ... I guess I could have gotten a bug.)

Alevian Duo--would like more information
Alevian duo (Bromuro de Pinaverio/dimeticona) was recently prescribed for me. It seems to be amazingly effective, but I would like to know more about the medicine. It is distributed by NYCOMED, made in Mexico for Gelcaps Exportadora de Mexico, S.Å. de C.V. ## I have a serious problem with my bowel movements, the Dr told me my colon are not moving properly, and I have an infection, also diverticulitis. He prescribed Mesalazina, now I am considering if Alevianduo would be a good medication for me, my bowels are not forming, just watery, and a lot of gas problem. I would like to hear from you if this med. could go together

Suboxone withdrawal after taper question.
I've been on suboxone 7 years. Started at 24 mgs and recently tapered down to .25 mgs. I planned on skipping one day, then two, then three and so on. HOWEVER....I am on day four and what do you know? Hardly any symptoms. And no terrible symptoms at all. I've been restless a little, pupils a little big. WTH is going on? I've read all these terrible stories about kicking sub, I've been terrified to even try...and here I sit just fine on day four?! Is the worst to come? Should I keep holding my breath? Please any advice is appreciated ## Hi, The first time I tapered off subs I was pleasantly surprised. I tapered slowly from 12mg to .5mg. The sub dr. I had at time was behind me on this. Started getting high about year later and started subs on my own and tapered kind of fast...

I have caught cvs and other pharmacies lying about not having oxycodone is stock, shortage 2012
Well today I officially caught a cvs here in Ga lie to me. A friend of mine filled his Meds yesterday. I go in, having a history with cvs, a recent one, and am immediately lied to. The pharmacist comes over and tells me they haven't had them in stock for months, without looking at his book or computer. At this point I stated an employee I know the name of told me shipment came in Thursday. He lied again. I then told him friend had filled yesterday morning. He said it was impossible. I then said I saw the bottle with my own eyes, it had their address on it, and even told him what brand they had since my friend just filled his there. Pharmacist lied to me yet again. I then asked him why he wad lying to me and that I am tired of being treated like a criminal because I am 30 with a hand...

glutaphos dosage
glutaphos daily dosage ## Glutaphos is a supplement, not a medication, is claimed to help with brain function and cognitive abilities. It contains: 325mg GLUTAMIC Acid, 200mg DICALCIUM Phosphate, 5mg THIAMINE hydrochloride and 10mcg VITAMIN B12. The regular dosage is listed as 1 tablet daily, or 2 after strenuous mental activity. Do you have any other questions? ## what are the contraindications if any? ## Sidz, since it is a supplement, as I said, rather than a mediation, that information isn't studied for it, as it is for medications. So, we have no way of knowing if there are any contraindications. Very sorry, I wish I could help you! Does anyone have more information on this? ## what is the best time to take such drug?? ## I used to take glutaphos before and its really effective...

Find A Doctor In My Area Indianapolis Xanax And Pain Pills
I need a agood dr. that is persistant. One that will help me control my pain, and help control my very high anxiety... Please Help!!!!!! ## Hi Mike, Personally, I think if you suffer from any sort of anxiety/depression and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Xanax), usually your best bet is to see a psychiatrist, rather than a regular medical doctor. Reason being, is that they are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems and can also help you treat the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression, as opposed to covering up the feelings and emotions with medication. In regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or z...
