arkaliox
uses ## Sorry, I can't find anything under this name, are you certain of the spelling? ## use or dietary suplement Arkaliox ## My doctor told me it is some kind of vitamin, based on thiamine to kind of boost you up with energy. I've looked the net, even call my pharmacist for more questions and they have more or less the same info. It also is supposed to retore blood circulation. ## The spelling is correct. Arkaliox 200 mg tablet is a supplement derived from thiamine called sulbuthiamine. ## Yes arcalion and arkaliox are the same they are sulbutimine. CVS only has arkaliox I'm getting a script for that from my doctor shortly. Do your own research this is just what I think as I don't have the script yet.

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess.

I need to know the herb I read about in this forum to help with craving sweets and other side effects on Methadone!! PLEASE HELP!!
I was reading in this forum a week or so ago and come upon someone talking about an herb capsule that helps with methadone side effects, craving sweets, sweating and a couple of other side effects. Is there anyone that could please help me with this?? PLEASE PLEASE!! I thought I found the answers to all my prayers. Except now, I can not find the name of this herb for the life of me! I truly appreciate all your help! Thank you and have a wonderful day!! ## Are you sure it was this forum?

Taking medroxyprogesterone for over 15 years
Hi, I've had abnormal periods since I was a teenager. At age 18 my gynecologist put me on provera/medroxyprogesterone, I've taken it every first 10 days of every month since then, and I am now 35 years old and still on this medicine. My doctor keeps telling me that I need to stay on it, to prevent uterine cancer, it runs in my family and if I don't take this medicine I won't get a period. My concern is the effect this medicine will have on my body after all these years of taking it. I keep reading that this medicine may increase my risk of breast and ovarian cancer. What do I do????

Fentanyl Patches Killing people!
I would like to know WHY the FDA has not taken the Fentanyl Patch off the market? This drug is being handed out like candy. Anyone who is not terminal or under Hospice care or in a hospital invironment should not be using this drug. Why would a person be prescribed a medication that is 80 times stronger than morphine for a backache. I do not believe patients know how powerful this medication is.The warning should be labled in RED. When are you FDA going to realize This medication is killing while relieving pain! I know because it killed my son. ## Very sorry to hear that you lost your son, from use of this medication. As to the warnings, those used by the FDA are black box warnings, to alert people to serious risks. While it can be dangerous, since it is so powerful and often abuse, it ...

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

Spiriva weight gain side effects
I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

Switching from loestrin 24 fe to lomedia
I am one of the customers unhappy with the discontinuation of Loestrin 24 Fe. I saw so many negative reviews with those who switched to Minastrin that I refused to take it despite what my nurse was trying to say. I researched and knew a generic was coming. I have waited since October of last year for Lomedia and picked up my prescription and pills 3 weeks ago. I still haven't taken them because I'd like to know about the experience on these pills. Has anyone taken Lomedia? Please share your experience so we can all be informed. ## Hello, Kimmie! How are you? From what I can find, there is no difference better the Lomedia and LoEstrin FE, the active ingredients and the dosages are the same. The FDA has approved it as a generic equivalent, so you shouldn't have any problems wi...

generic adderall 20 mg
I recently got my generic adderall filled from a new pharmacy. The bottle says its amphetamine 20 mg tab MAL. It has a 20 on one side of the pill with four partial scores and the other side has an M inside a box. The pill is 8 sided. The pill doesn't have the potency my previous pills have does anyone have any info on thi particular pill? ## I am having the same problem.I filled my adderall from my Pharmacist I always go to..

Zoloft brain tours
I am on 200 mg per day and it has been an excellent solution for me. I was experiencing severe anxiety attacks due to a life situation, it eliminated that. 2 sides effects: decreased libido and tremors. One fascinating effect: I call them "brain tours". They happen when sleeping at night or dozing in the chair. My body will be absolutely asleep but my brain is 100% awake and alert. I can hear other people' s conversations and remember them, I confirmed it the next day. One night I made up a nonsense word during a tour, I thought if it was a dream I'd forget the word because I forget dreams. I still know the word, flibberpeanut. During tours i cannot move my body, like in REM sleep. The first few times it scared me but now it is fascinating. I use these tours to explore t...

Why is Klor Con so expensive
KDur or Klor Con has been around for many many years but still is very expensive. It is more costly than some newer meds that do not have generics. How is this possible? Is this a question of greed on the part of pharmacies. This is a frequently ordered drug.

Obgyn ran tests today on Liver Function. Ugh stressed.
Hi all! I went to the Obgyn today and she sent my blood work off for routine testing which includes my liver levels. I am prescribed this medication, Norco 7.5/325 for degenerative disc disease. I do drink alcohol about 2-3x/week average of 8-10 units/week but always the day before or the day after taking norco. I have never drank alcohol and taken norco on the same day and I always wait close to 24 hours between last drink & dose or vice versa. I freak out about my liver a lot but my neck is in so much pain I try to forget about it. Now the gynecologist sent off these tests and I'm going to have to face the music, although I'm really not ready to. I have been taking Norco regularly (i.e. on the days that I don't drink) since 9/2013 so about 10 months. I usually take 2/day

Thankful for Chantix
I had took Chantix about 3 months ago and successfully was able to quit. So many people I've suggested it to have all of these excuses why they can't stop smoking or are worried about the side effects of others. I had absolutely no side effects I felt like throwing up 3 or 4 times for maybe a second but then it passed. I had virtually no side effects this is an amazing product. I smoked for almost half my life and I was able to quit within 2 weeks. Thank you ## I am on day 4 with the champix and find myself a bit afraid of taking the leap to a better non smoking me. Smoking has been a constant in my life for 23 years. I've never been successful in quitting before but am hopeful to quit now. I know that the emotional attachment is going to be the most difficult to overcome. M...
