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...

Pennsylvania pain doctors
I have multiple horrendous back problems, to say the least. I used to be on fentanyl patches, somas, percs, and methadone before the patches. I live in a very rural area and the drs make it clear that they no longer prescribe narcotics period. That's so unfare. I despertly need pain relief. Plz help. ## Hello, Aimer! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain and having such a problem. There were new regulations put in place last year that restrict what PCPs can prescribe, so you will need to find a pain management specialist to continue such medications. Have you tried asking your current doctor to refer you to someone? And can you please post back with your general area of PA? I am originally from there and may know of some doctors you can try in your area. This is a ...

CAN ANYONE PROVIDE ME WITH A MEDICAL WEBSITE WEHRE I CAN START A PRESCRIPTION OF ACXION FENTERMINA? ## You purchase them on bst? after a 2 yr struggle trying hard to lose the weight, I finally ordered acxion. I would have to admit, Its the sure thing, because I've tried them ALL. You are supposed to take one every morning upon waking up for 3 months. I lost all my weight ( 15 ibs. ) in the first 6 weeks though. I have had about 20 girlfriends share the same success as I. It was a miracle for me. They are made by a Mexican pharmacy called Medix. Good luck. ## Phentermine is an amphetamine class appetite suppressant used to help with weight loss. That said, it should never be used without a d...

local shortage of hydrocodone my mother takes 10 325
Our local walgreens is out and they have no idea when they will be getting any in. Tried at least 3 walgreens, 1 kroeger, cvs and no avail. any others having this problem? ## Yes... I'm having this same exact problem, my pharmacy CVS keeps ordering it but it never comes in. They think the companies who make it are having back order issues because of the recent change from CIII's to CII's... I have tried everywhere within driving distance and no one has this... what the heck is going on??? ## Unfortunately, we are having the same issues here in Central Florida. My wife was prescribed hydrocodone for mixed-connective tissue disease and is also recovering from surgery. On October 10, I took her prescription into the CVS my family always uses and was immediately told that they c...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Any reviews on the new drug Xartemis XR?
I was just prescribed Xartemis XR for chronic back pain. I am used to taking Percocet 10/325 four times a day. Looking for people who can compare the efficacy of the drug. How it can be instant and extended relief. Thanks. ## Hello, Seymour! How are you? It's the way the medication is designed, a certain portion is released as soon as you swallow it, then it slowly swells as it absorbs your gastric fluid to gradually release the rest. It contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was wondering if there were any reviews from others who have taken it. I have read about it and how...

Klonopin brand name
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

Does Androgel penetrate through a glove?
I have been applying my husband's Androgel to his shoulders. He has a cast on one arm and is unable to do it himself right now. I wear a disposable glove each time. I have noticed a cooling, menthol-like feeling through the glove, which I assume is from the alcohol in it. I also noticed the inside of the glove seems wet when I take it off. Does the hormone penetrate the glove by the way of the alcohol in it? ## Hello, Ivy! How are you? I would suggest checking with your pharmacist to get a definitive answer on this. The alcohol wouldn't do it, but there are some substances that can penetrate or destroy latex, which is why there are many warnings about what not to use with latex condoms. Thus, if the inside is wet, then yes, there is a chance that it is penetrating, which could c...

Mild heart attack after taking AndroGel. I started taking AndroGel for low testrone levels on Saturday, Sunday right after I used it I felt funny. Monday after using it my chest was hurting, Tuesday after taking it I could not breath, sweating, sick at my stomach and felt like someone was sitting on my chest. Heart attack symptoms called 911 rushed to hospital and had had a mild heart attack. AndroGel the cause don't know but it did save my life. I had a blockage and got a stent put in my heart.

Androgel caused dizziness even after stopping use after one month
Hello, I am a 50 yr old male diagnosed with a 225 T level and was prescribed Androgel pump 1.62% in January 2014.I started applying it and did not see a huge noticeable change in my energy level but I thought I'd give it some time to absorb. After about 3 weeks I started getting dizzy especially when I was sitting and working on my computer.Stopped using it now for a month. But the effect remains! At first I thought it was eye or ear related. Both were ruled out by extensive eye and ear tests. Has anyone noticed such a side effect? I feel as if I am little drunk, the top of my head feels a bit heavy and feel slight side to side bobbing. Do not feel sever vertigo or anything just a mild swaying effect making it difficult to work! Going to see Neurologist and Endocrinologist this mont...
