Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon
77 Replies RSS
suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.

Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But They Are Conditions
88 Replies RSS
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...

harvoni side effects
5 Replies RSS
I have been taking Harvoni for 3 months now and am having nerve pain in my legs and lower back pain. Are anyone taking Harvoni having any of these same side effects as me? Please help if you are able. Thank you ## Hi Tony, From what I've researched, "lower back pain" is specifically listed as one of the more common side effects of Sofosbuvir (the second active ingredient in Harvoni); so I'd imagine that "leg pain" may be attributed to this drug as well. If you'd like a more concrete reference, "back pain" is also listed as a side effect of Sofosbuvir on Pubmed at: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25422576 That said, you may want to contact your doctor if the pain becomes too bothersome or severe. This way you and your doctor can determine if Harvoni is still r...

alcohol and Gabapentin
49 Replies RSS
Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema. You can read more on it here: Do you have any other questions? ## what are the bad things with this drug and alcohol? ## I've taken 3600mg of Gabapentin each day for 21 months now! I drink alcohol with them & feel ok. I would just say that the Gabapentin alone will l...

a333 white pill
16 Replies RSS
I just started taking the A333 pill. It is supposed to be a generic substitute for oxycodone 10/325. I was taking the Watson 932 generic substitute but was switched to the A333 pill because of drug store supply. I have noticed the A333 does not work nearly as well as the Watson 932 for me. ## Hello, Will! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. How long have you been taking this one? There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, but they are usual minuscule and normally your body will adjust after a short period of time. ## I have been taking Percocet for a long time. Up until about 4 months ago I would get this strong burst of energy along with killing the pain. It would last about 4hrs. I would get the...

Citalopram Hbr make you gain weight
4 Replies RSS
Can citalopram make you gain weight or make it difficult to lose weight ## Personally, I have not found citalopram to make me gain weight. I have been on it for about 4 years did not gain any weight when I started it, nor have I had trouble losing weight when I try ... when I can put the ice cream away, that is :) ## Citalopram is an SSRI antidepressant, so yes it can cause weight problems in some people, but as evidenced by Mariah, it doesn't happen to everyone. Learn more Citalopram details here. The best thing you can do if it's causing you these types of problems is to make sure to eat as healthy as possible and step up your exercise routine. Are there any other questions or comments? ## My personal experience was that Citalopram caused me to gain a bit of weight (11lbs) and...

PLEASE help me with methadone questions & withdrawl
17 Replies RSS
I have been on methadone for 9 months... I was up to 80 mg but have managed to get down to 20 mg over the past 5 months or so. I am wanting to get off it all together but I am so scared because I don't want to feel miserable from the wd. Since I have been on it less than a year, will the wd still be horrible? Should I go from the methadone to suboxone to make it any easier or just keep going down on the methadone? How long will the wd's last once I am off everything? I go to the clinic so I am not doing it on my own, it is medically supervised. Can anyone PLEASE help me with some good advice?? ## Hello, Staycee! How are you doing? Methadone is actually well known for causing severe withdrawals and cravings, that's why most people treated with it end up on a lifetime maintena...
