4mg Dilaudid Vs 80 Mg Oxycontin Er
13 Replies RSS
Hello~I'm on oxy 80's and dilaudid 4mgs which are prescribed for back pain. The oxys alone don't help at all. I get dilaudids tomorrow, but will be out of oxys. Does anyone know if the dilaudid alone will help? Thanks ## How did it work? Did you get any pain relief? Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is very potent, but if you've been taking 80mgs of the Oxycodone, then you'd need 30mgs of it to be equivalent for analgesia. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Hey! I sort of figured out the conversion and was taking 30 mg. or more of Dilaudid a day. I continue to be in around the clock pain. I believe I need to take the Oxycontin and Dilaudid in conjunction with one another. Thanks for responding! ## 10 MGS...

What if any side effects are people experiencing on viibryd ## Taking Viibryd (vilazodone) at a dose of 40 mg per day is considered to be well tolerated and reported adverse effects ranged from mild to moderate in intensity; side effects included diarrhea, nausea, and somnolence.

PLEASE help me with methadone questions & withdrawl
95 Replies RSS
I have been on methadone for 9 months... I was up to 80 mg but have managed to get down to 20 mg over the past 5 months or so. I am wanting to get off it all together but I am so scared because I don't want to feel miserable from the wd. Since I have been on it less than a year, will the wd still be horrible? Should I go from the methadone to suboxone to make it any easier or just keep going down on the methadone? How long will the wd's last once I am off everything? I go to the clinic so I am not doing it on my own, it is medically supervised. Can anyone PLEASE help me with some good advice?? ## Hello, Staycee! How are you doing? Methadone is actually well known for causing severe withdrawals and cravings, that's why most people treated with it end up on a lifetime maintena...

what is the use of susten 400mg
1 Reply RSS
From this tablet, what are the uses after iui treatment. And this tablet is kept for 1st 14 days after iui ## Susten is a natural progesterone and does support healthy conception and pregnancy. I would recommend taking it as suppository rather than in tablets. Taking oral progesterone is not as easily absorbed by the body as it as to be broken down by the liver. Progesterone plays a major role during the two weeks after ovulation because it supports embryo implantation. Most women who have luteal phase defect suffer from low progesterone and recurrent miscarriage. They need progesterone supplementation to ensure that will carry to term. In these cases, the doctor may recommend using natural progesterone through the entire first trimester.

FDA rules on the effectiveness of opiates
3 Replies RSS
I've been hearing about FDA rules or a scale of effectiveness of opiates. Does anyone have information on what this scale is and what effects this has on the customer managing their pain levels? ## @Susie, I may be wrong, but it sounds to me like you might be referring to an "equianalgesic (or opioid) chart", which you can find online with a simple google search. Basically all it is a reference that compares things like potency, efficacy, duration of effects, half-life, etc, from one opioid/opiate to another. You can view an example of a chart here: healthcare.uiowa.edu/familymedicine/fpinfo/Docs/adultopioidrefguide.htm I think the implications behind knowing how these medications compare to each other is the most helpful aspect in and of itself. This way pain patients can b...

Please reply, I had a pulmonary scars, and I need serrapeptase to clear the scars of my lungs ## I'm sorry, but we are based in the U.S. and do not manufacture, nor sell any medications, so I have no idea if it is available where you are located. But yes, it does contain Serratiopeptidase, which is an anti-inflammatory enzyme, however, I also don't have any information on its being used for the problem you are describing. Have you tried consulting a local pharmacist/chemist? ## Serrapeptase is available in the Philippines as Dalzen. ## Hi, Just want to know if Dalzen Serrapeptase 10mg is now available in the Phils?
