12 days on klonopin
I was put on klonopin by a new med. doctor, for severe panic attacks and anxiety, that was brought on by a number of serious family problems. I have also been on 40 mg. of Celexa for 10 yrs, and 150 mg of wellbutrin for about 8 yrs. The new dr. just upped my Klonopin to I mg, 3 times a day. He totally took me off of the wellbutrin, without tapering. He cut my Celexa dosage in 1/2, and added 60 mg of Cymbalta a day THis all seems a bit extreme and scary to me.I really do not like him or feel comfortable with him. I am going to see a new med dr next week, who works with a group my therapist is affiliated with. My biggest concern is the klonapin dose being upped so much.I have only been on it for 12 days, and I do not feel that it has helped me with nightly panick attacks.It p uhh rd me to sl

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain meds near joplin mo without a $500 initial fee
Joplin or near joplin mo pain dr that will prescribe dilaudid and norco that dosent cost $ 500 for the first visit ## I'm sorry, but really that's about the average for most specialists. Do you have insurance to cover it? Learn more Norco details here. Can anyone else suggest someone that may be a bit cheaper? The only other suggestion I can make, if you don't have insurance, is to contact your local hospitals and see if they have a social work department. The people there often have a list of resources to help people that don't have insurance, so they can get the medical care they need. They may even know of a clinic that can help that has a sliding fee scale. ## Who is the doctor in Joplin? I live in Joplin, MO and have been to countless pain management specialists tha...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Metronidazole lasting side effects
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

round white and yellow pill with 350 on it what kind of is this
I found a pill its round and white on one side and yellow on the other side with 350 what kind of pill is this ## Hi Ann, Based on my research, the pill you're describing may be a 650mg Acetaminophen tablet manufactured by a company called Premier Value. They describe their pill as a round, half yellow/half white gelatin-coated tablet imprinted with 350 on one side. For your own verification, the approximate size of the pill is reportedly 13mm in diameter and also carries a National Drug Code of 68016-340. I hope this helps!

I know what the pill is and does I have the pharmacology. What I want to know is, who makes that particular pill and where it is manufactured? ## Never mind. I found the information on my own . I would remove the original post but don't want to waste my time figuring out how. ## Hi Sam, Thanks for the update on your post. Glad to hear you were able to find what you were searching for! Just as a heads up for anyone else who may be looking for the same pill information, the manufacturer of this particular Methocarbamol tablet is reported to be Virtus Pharmaceuticals LLC; a company based out of Tampa, Florida. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Methocarbamol Details I hope this helps!

if pills are real
Purchased anadrol 50 .. Come in package from anabolicpharma say adrol a50. The pills are white, round, no scoring or any type of marking.. Have you seen or heard if these are legit.. ## According to a number of reviews I found, AnabolicPharma products are reported to be a scam. Some experience steroid users have also clearly stated in other threads that they would never take a chance ordering from them. Reviews like this speak for themselves I believe, and I wouldn't suggest taking a chance with it to be quite honest with you. Also the fact that it doesn't have any kind of marking or imprint on the tablet is another red flag in my book. If you are really interested in trying steroids, it would probably be best to do a ton of self- research first to truly be able to understand wh...

Ridding of Lipitor got rid of Alzheimer's symptoms
My mother was on Lipitor for over 10 years, since 6 years ago she developed Alzheimer's symptoms, she short term and med term memory is gone, kept asking the same question. She has a lot of confusion and is not confident anymore. I saw the news about Lipitor 3 weeks ago, and test it by stopping her Lipitor med. 2 weeks later, she is 85% recovered! She is like a different person now, asking me detail questions about more complex subjects, and actually wanting to learn to use the remote control! I am glad to have her back in my life, she is back from Hell. ## btw she was only taking 10mg of Lipitor. It was taken as precaution only, she exercise regularly and eats very lean.

Regarding Lyrica, I was prescribed it for fibromyalgia in 2009, 50 mg. twice a day. I took it for three years. I stopped taking it a year & 1/2 ago
I was prescribed Lyrica for fibromyalgia in 2009, 50 mg. twice a day, I took it for three years. It has messed up my life also. Stuttering, lack of memory, my gums hurt for a year, now my front teeth are crooked, and I've been referred to an orthodontist for braces. Really? I'm 63 years old! I'm afraid I'll lose my teeth as some of you have. I STOPPED taking it a year and a half ago on my own. Since I've read all of your problems, now I know why, it's the Lyrica. I had depression, was on anti-depressants. It also caused me to have cateracts, and each eye hemorrhaged one month after the surgery of each eye. I've had blurry vision since, it moves around in my eye like a cloud! We need an attorney that will represent all of us NOW! I even called the FDA. No one ...
