linzess weight gain
I was just prescribed Linzess for my IBS. I am wondering if others on this medicine have experienced wieght gain? ## Actually, since it usually causes gastrointestinal side effects, including diarrhea, it's usually known to cause the opposite problem of weight loss. You should also be informed that some people develop serve, ongoing diarrhea, so you need to watch out for that and contact your doctor if it happens. Learn more Linzess details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've gained 4 pounds in 3 days since I started taking Linzess. I am on weight watchers so I count points so I know it is not my food intake. I don't usually fluctuate in pounds so I think it's the new meds. I am still taking Miralax but it doesn't seem like either are working. I loo...

How Long Does it take for fentanyl 25 mcg withdrawals to start and stop
i have been on fentanyl 25mcg for about a yr. i am decreasing to 12.5 mcg for a week and then no more patches after. how long will it take to considering the info. will it take for the withdrawal to start and stop. i understand everyone is different. i will be taking valium 5mg for a couple days to ease the effects. any info would be great. ## Yes, everyone is different, so it really makes it hard to say, because it is going to vary. I stopped heavy doses of Oxycodone and Morphine cold turkey, after being on them for about 6 or 7 years for pain management and my withdrawal symptoms lasted for about a month. Hopefully the Valium will help. Has your doctor given you any other advice? ## Thanks for ur info. Several yrs ago I stopped fiorcet w codeine (on it for 4 yrs) and it took about tha...

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...

Muscle or joint pain
I have been using fenofibrate for about 4 months. About that same time I started having sharp pain in my left hip area. I thought it might be a hip problem but it seems to be more like a muscle in the top of my buttocks to my very lower back. At times it seems to be more pronounced in the front side like my upper groin area. Sometime the pain lessens some if I am doing more physical activities during the day like mowing the lawn and working around the garden. I have also just in the last couple of days been having severe soreness in my right shoulder deltoid area. I just saw that the fenofibrate can cause some muscle aches. I stopped taking it a few days ago (my Dr.told me to anyway when the last prescription ran out) My question is if these are side effects from the fenofibrate how lon...

Been taking oval green 2x's a day for couple months. Now the pharm sent me blue oval 605, is there a diference or it doesn't matter in effectiveness? Also, are they ir, er, ect?

Will clindamycin clear a knot in my leg?
My staph on my upper inner thought developed a knott about the size of my palm and I have been takin Clindamycin for two days now physically I'm feeling better no more fever but the knot on my leg is not improving any and it draining is it just because it built up in my system before I got the meds I had it for 4 days and been taking the medicine since Sunday? So my question is will the medicine make the knot go away? ## Hello, Lexi! How are you? It may, or it may not. It really depends on what the knot actually is, for instance, if you developed a cyst from the infection, then it may need to be drained by your doctor, the antibiotic may not make it go away. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Is it OK to take my daily 1500 in 3 doses instead of 2?
Hello, I was tentatively diagnosed 6 weeks ago with partial simple seizures ( a weird feeling in abdomen that 'whooshes' it's way up to my head) and put on 1000 Keppra daily (500 twice a day.) Dr upped dose to 1500 daily. My question- can I take a 500 pill every 8 hours (6am-2pm-10pm) instead of 750 every 12 hours? The larger dose wipes me out. (Tried to condense and keep this short) Thanks for any help!! ## Hello, Ibis! How are you? You should follow your doctor's instructions for the amount to take and how often you should take it. The side effects, such as it making you feel wiped out, will only last about 3 weeks. You'll likely hit a couple of days, right around the 21 day mark, where it'll seem to get really bad, then things will start to improve. It is the ...

Oxycodone Doctor in NJ
I need a doctor that will freely right oxycodone 30mg in New Jersey. My doctor recently took me off of 30mg oxycodone because I tested "negative" for oxycodone because I lost my prescription that month. I was seeing him for 2 years. I have a serious back problem - 4 discs are herniated and 1 disc is GONE. Most doctors just want to refer me to a orthopedic doctor to get surgery. I DONT WANT SURGERY I am too young!! If you know of a doctor in NJ that will write oxycodone 30mg please email me {edited for privacy}. Thanks! ## Hi, Frank! I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, if surgery is a possible solution that would end your suffering, there is no such thing as being too young for it. It would do you far greater harm over the long term to keep takin...

Suboxone Dr. Huntsville, Al Needed Asap
I need a Suboxone Dr. in the Huntsville/Madison, AL area asap. I am already on suboxone, but it looks like my doctor may be leaving the area and I really don't want to go to a random Dr. just to find out he's awful. I've already done that once with a doctor scamming me and my insurance and I really don't want to do it again. If anyone knows of a good doctor in the area, preferably one with availabilities (but I will put myself on as many waiting lists as needed, so go ahead with any good ones that are full that you may know of), I would really appreciate the help! Thanks! ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? Actually, there is a search engine on the website that you can use to check for doctors in your area by zip code. You can find it at click here.

round white pill w/54 over 251 & reverse side blank
this pill is supposed to be acarbose 100mg but it doesn't match what I had before. The acarbose I took before had an M on one side & A over 100 on the other side. The acarbose this time is plain on one side with the number 54 up top & undernieth are the numbers 251. Both pills are round & white. ## Hello, Julie! How are you? This is a 100mg Arbacose tablet, since it is a generic, it's manufactured by several different companies and they'll all have different markings. It's most common side effect is diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

doctors who will prescribe pain medication illinois
I have both chronic and acute headaches. I've taken everything. The only relief I ever get is through narcotics. No one will prescribe them so I've spent the last 10 years in bed, in the dark. I would really like to die because the pain is so bad. When it gets bad I'll go to the ER but they won't even help me. I also have a problem with my body making kidney stones. Please help. ## Hello, Rocky! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require narcotics on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. A PCP won't be able to prescribe them for you. Thus, you'll likely need to see a neurologist and a urologist. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to other doctors? If so, that would be the best w...
