metoprolol withdrawal
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

spiractin
I have a terrible problem of retaining fluid during the day where to the point I can gain 5 kg as I only urinate once or twice after consuming at least 2 1/2 litre of water per day. My doctor prescribed me spiractin and frusemide at different times, he didnt tell me to take them concurrently, so I was wondering if it I could take these both during the day for the duiretic needs to stop from gaining so much fluid weight during the day without causing any side effects. My potassium levels are fine but my kidneys have slowed a bit owing to age. As I have lost a total weight of 80kg over the past two years and have worked hard to maintain it, I am a bit reticent to stop taking these tablets as I do not want to gain any of the weight I have lost. I attended a vascular surgeon to see if an opera

Androgel 1.62
I have been on testim 1% for 6 years and my TT has consistently been in the range of 450-500, using 2 tubes daily. Last May, my insurance company dropped testim and I am now starting to use Androgel 1.62. My new endocrinologist took me offer everything for 2 weeks to see where my numbers were. My TT was 190 an bioavailable and free T were 1/2 the # (bottom range) for both. My new doctor has started me on 1 pump daily of the 1.62. My feeling is that this 1 pump may be too little to get into the normal range of 5-600 TT. Any suggestions?

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

how long do i have to wait take suboxone after a few days of being on just morphine?
I was previously on suboxone for three years and relapsed on morphine for about three days now and want to start my suboxone back up, but I'm not sure when to take it. I think I will try 1mg of Subs and see what happens in a few hours and if I'm sick I'll just take another morphine........crazy I thought I was good til they were in my hands again. The last morphine 30 I took was yesterday morning and the last 15 I took was at 11pm last night. Any suggestions? ## Do not take the subs until you feel actual withdrawal symptoms if u take it to soon it will send u into withdrawal with is much worse I waited twenty four hours and it was ## You waited 24 hours and it was fine??? Getting ready to start the same thing. The last 15mg I took was this morning about 8am. Is it better the...

Orange or Brown Oval 271
My toddler found an orange/brown oval pill marked 271 in a toy we had been given second-hand. He's played with the toy for about a year so I don't know how/when it got there. ## Hi Amanda, Unfortunately the closest match I can find with an imprint of 271 is a round pink pill, identified as Carbamazepine (chewable) 100 mg; used primarily in the treatment of epilepsy. Manufacturer: Torrent Pharmaceuticals National Drug Code (NDC): 13668-0271 Is there perhaps any way that it might be pink in color as opposed to orange or brown? Hopefully someone else on here with this pill can offer their opinion as well. ## Hi. It's a generic Advil cold & sinus. More info at: chealth.canoe.ca/drug_info_details.asp?brand_name_id=4874. It states the specific description near the end of the d...

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...
