Any reviews on the new drug Xartemis XR?
27 Replies RSS
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...

Minastrin 24 & Insurance
1 Reply RSS
Hi y'all, Like a lot of you, I switched to Minastrin 24 from Loestrin last year when L got discontinued. Does anyone know if any insurance providers cover Minastrin 24? I know you can get the discount card, but BCBS has stopped accepting mine and I'm super annoyed. For various reasons, M24 is the only pill I can be on, so I'm kind of stuck paying $60 every month on top of my ridiculous insurance bill. We are about to switch insurance providers, so I thought I'd check before picking one just in case. ## Hi Janelle, You mentioned that Blue Cross/Blue Shield stopped accepting your discount card, but to my understanding, these discount cards are in no way affiliated with insurance companies, so they should not have any say as to whether or not it'll work - as long as it...

I take xanax three times a day ,so thirty tablets is a ten day supply. How many days early can i get them filled ## A day, possibly two. Why not ask the Doctor to prescribe for a one month supply? I know my first prescription years ago was for 10 days at the .25 strength. Over the years I now get 12x more a day and for 30 days instead of 10 days, how times have changed

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
732 Replies RSS
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

diclofenaco complejo b
1 Reply RSS
What is it this medication for people are telling me is for lossing weight. Is it? ## No, this is a Mexican medication that is listed as containing a vitamin B complex and Diclofenac. The FDA classifies Diclofenac as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and/or swelling. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. And actually, long-term use of it could cause fluid retention and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

what is v 4009 pill
1 Reply RSS
Hi what is a white round pill with 40 on one side and it's blank on the other side larger than an aspirin? ## Hello, Belinda! How are you? The tablet with the 4009 V on it is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 2mgs of Lorazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. As to the larger white tablet with the 40 on it, I believe that may be the one manufactured by Accord Healthcare, which contains 40mgs of Lisinopril. Its an ACE inhibitor that's used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects...

Is 30 mg morphine Sul Tab ER taking 1 tablet by mouth twice a day, the same as OxyContin Tab 40mg CR taking 1 tablet by mouth three times a day?
1 Reply RSS
The above medicine was recently changed from OxyContin 40mg CR to Morphine Sul Tab 30 MG ER due to Insurance not covering the OxyContin. when I went for a refill after hospital discharge medication ran out! The Morphine Sul Tab is not even coming close to relieving the pain from surgery. Is there a similar medication that is close to OxyContin that will control the pain!! ## Hello, Sandy! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. No, they have you on too low of a dose of the Morphine. Oxycontin is one and a half times stronger, so you'd need 60mgs of Morphine for each 40mgs of Oxycontin that you were taking. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizzi...

phentermine 37.5 mg. LCI 1445
1 Reply RSS
Does this pill (phentermine 37.5 mg. LCI 1445) require a prescription? ## Hello, Rubi! How are you? Yes, in the U.S. Phentermine does require a prescription, due to the fact that it is a stimulant and should only be used with a doctor's approval under their supervision. Taking it improperly, or taking it when someone suffers certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, could put someone's life in danger. The FDA also warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?

1 Reply RSS
Because of recall and side effect I want to stop. How ## Hello, Rae! How are you? What recall? I'm not showing anything since June of last year. What types of side effects are you experiencing? This is a beta blocker that is listed by the FDA as being most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and hypotension. However, side effects are usually transient and go away in a few weeks, once your body adjusts to the medication. If you have high blood pressure, I strongly urge you not to stop it, before speaking with your doctor to replace it with a different medication. While the side effects may be annoying, in the meantime, letting your blood pressure soar out of ...
