methadone 10 mg pills with asc 116 on side
Upon taking this med,it started to dissolve in my mouth by the time I got water in a glass and put it to my lips to swallow the pill, 10 mg. methadone with ASC 116 on one side ## Hello, Jan! How are you? It sounds like you were letting it sit in your mouth on your tongue for a moment, before taking a drink to swallow it, which is not the proper way to take pills. You should actually place them as far back as possible, to the very end of your tongue, just short of choking on it and drink the water immediately. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Length of time on suboxone?
Hello everyone! I've was a pain pill addict for almost 11 years. I had many of surgeries and have a lot of medical problems. I was put on the pain pills due to my severe pain. And, became addicted. Went on methadone to get clean. I was so sick of being an addict. I was on 110mg and weaned down to 24mg. At that point, I was withdrawing so bad. I went to my Dr. Whom is also an addiction specialist, in tears. I was begging him to help me. He said I could stay on the methadone and increase or go on suboxone. I had come so far down off the meth. That I didn't want to stay on it. Anyway , I went on subs. That day. I take 24 mg a day. I'm also on. 3mg a day of klonopin due to PTSD and anxiety. So happy where my life is today. I've been on subs for almost 8 years now . I know if...

kicking habits with AN 415
How do you use these pills to kick an opiate habit without gaining a dependence upon them? ## Hello, Witchy! How are you? This is an 8/2mg Suboxone tablet (generic), so you don't. People generally end up being dependent on it for awhile and then they are tapered off very slowly to enable them to become drug free. This is a narcotic opiate, so it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

lyrica 75mg four times a day?
I've been taking 75mg Lyrica three times a day for peripheral neuropathy and fibromyalgia pain but it's not quite enough. Would it be ok to take it four times a day? ## Hello, Teresa! How are you? No, 3 times a day is the maximum dosing schedule, but you could speak to your doctor about raising your dosage to 100mgs. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Viibryd cold turkey withdrawal
Medicare decided to cut me off this drug. Pharmacist working on it. Day 3 I NEVER want to feel this again. Not sure if I ever want to take this drug again as there are going to be problems with refills FOREVER! ## Hello, MN Loon! How are you? You may want to speak to your doctor about trying a different antidepressant. Many are available as generics, so Medicare usually covers them and, even if it doesn't, they are very cheap if you have to pay cash. Have you tried any of the others, or is this the first? How are you feeling? Have your symptoms eased up, yet?

Co-diovan side effect?
I've been taking 80mg/12.5 for some months now; bp when measured with two different monitors (upper arm and wrist) has averaged 106-110/61-63, with diastolic figures at times lower than 60, heart rate 55-70. Readings are elevated at the doctors clinic ~ 130-140/75-80. Main problem is regular tension like headache, with similar burning sensation feeling occasionally behind the ears / neck region. CT scan results okay. Electrolytes figures, kidney & liver function tests, and sugar level tests results also okay. I'm strongly convinced that the co-diovan medication is responsible for the headaches / burning sensation feeling described early. My doctors are still observing and this has affected quality of life for me. Is anyone with a similar experience and how can this be addres...

Mallinckrodt Fentanyl Patch
Does anyone know how it is made? Does it have the medicine woven into the fabric of the patch or is it in a pouch form? Thank you ## No, I'm sorry, due to the risks of then being abused, such as people trying to smoke the medication from a patch, they no longer publicly list the specifics of its make up. They are really only required to list it with the FDA safety filings anyway, so they can get away with doing this quite easily. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Have you gotten some manufactured by them from your pharmacy? ## If the patch has a gel filled pouch....what would the gel be there for if it wasn't impregnated with the medicine? ## I have been using Fentanyl patches for about 2 years, the 75 Mcg. I usually get the Mylan brand. Drug store was low on the Wty they had so...

only took half of 0.5 clonazepam 36 hours
only took half of o.5 clonazapam 36 hours ago can I drink beer safely. Never took meds before ## Hello, Dee! How are you? Clonazepam has a half-life ranging from about 30 to 50 hours, which means it would be 150 to 300 hours, before it's out of your body. Thus, you may still experience a greater intensity of the side effects if you drink alcohol, you may feel more nausea, dizziness and drowsy than normal. One drink might affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. Thus, it would really be best to avoid alcohol for awhile after taking it. This medication also carries the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with?

Generic Cymbalta (Duloxetine)
Cymbalta's generic, duloxetine, was given to me by my pharmacy without notifying me of the change. I'd been taking Brand at night, 120 mg. for four plus years and the drug made a tremendous difference in quality of life. On the generic I had insomnia from the get go, felt depressed and exhausted during the day, and didn't figure it out for several days because the generic capsules are exactly the same colors as the Brand. (There ought to be a law...) Dr. suggested I then try taking it in the morning; then at dinnertime, but was still unable to sleep for more than three hours at a time, even after thirty hours of wakefulness. Feeling spaced out during the day made it Impossible to function normally, and eyes were still wide open at night. After a couple of weeks I felt like s...

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger? ## The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback. ## Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone. To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you for the...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

suddenly stopping of glycomate500 mg
gynic has prescribed glycomate 500 mg for conceiving fast for three months. i stopped after one month. after stopping that headache started on the left side of the brain, drowsiness nausea, feeling of craziness started. what r the reasons behind it ? ## Hello, Banerjee! How are you? This medication will not help someone to conceive any faster than normal. Are you sure that's what it was prescribed for? Does the woman possibly suffer from PCOS/PCOD? It is sometimes used to treat that by improving insulin resistance. And it sounds like the person's blood sugar may have shot up too high, once they stopped taking it. Has their doctor been consulted, yet? This medication is normally used by diabetics to help lower and control blood sugar levels.

Is this normal? Sprintec skipping
Hi. I am on sprintec and forgot to take day 9. on day 10, I took 2 blue pills day 9 & 10. On day 11, I took my pill as normal, and now I am bleeding. Its dark in color. Is this normal? I've done this before and don't remember mid cycle bleeding. thanks, ## Hello, Faith! How are you? When you're taking oral contraceptives, your period is actually a withdrawal bleed that's caused by withdrawal of the hormones. Thus yes, anytime you miss a pill or take it late, there is a chance of experiencing bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?
