wife needs her meds
My wife as been taking oxicodone 30,s for many years for her multiple pain issues.Does anyone know of a doc willing to perscribe in the Shreveport/East Texas ares? ## Hello, Bill! How are you and your wife? IF she requires such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, she'll need to see a pain management specialist, a general practice doctor will not be able to prescribe it. Does she have a PCP that she sees regularly who may be able to give her a referral? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? There are no guarantees, of course, that any doctor ...

Fake Orlistat capsules
Hello Everyone Just wanted to let you all know that you need to be aware of fake Orlistat pills being offered for sale as generics to Alli. I bought what I thought were generic Alli 120mg but was sent blue capsules filled with a white powder instead. I know for a fact that the active ingrediant in Alli (Orlistat), is actually small white bead-type drug. So, what is this powder? Only God knows! I've written my letter of complaint to the on-line pharmacy concerned, but no reply. I will see about getting my money back. ## Sorry to hear about your experience when ordering this medication. However, it is important to note that not all manufacturers are going to use the same manufacturing process when making any given medication. Rather than the bead type, they may use a different release...

h small round pill 4large purple pill with H 4 imprint
Dark purple round and imprinted is a cross (fourths) with H in the first section and directly opposite is a 4 in the opposite section ## Hi bre, From what I could gather, the round cross-scored purple pills you have marked with "H 4", are reportedly identified as an older version of Baytril (enrofloxacin); prescribed as an antibiotic for cats and dogs. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Bayer Corp. and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 99999000521 Please feel free to post back if you have any other questions about this!

round peach colored pill with letter L on it. small,round and kinda thick
Has an"L" on one side and nothing on other side. L is etched on one side not colored in black, just etched on one side with letter"L" kinda alittle small round peach or pink ,but igueessmore peach ,....small and kinda thick ## Hello, Mike! How are you? From your description, it sounds like you may have found an 81mg Aspirin tablet, it's the low dose one that's commonly taken for blood thinning and heart health. It is an NSAID, so it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. I'll also do some more checking to see if I can find anything that matches this description. Does anyone else have another possible ID?

Is maxzide still being manufactured? Is TRIAMT/HCTZ 75-50mg a save replacement? ## Hello, Grace! How are you? Yes, it is still available and they are both the same thing, that's just the generic for Maxzide. This medication is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, frequent urination and dehydration. Are there any other questions or concerns?

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...

Klonopin brand name
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

can cyclobenzaprine help you with suboxone withdrawls
I am tapering off of suboxone, can cyclobenzaprine hc tab help me with the withdrawls. ## Hello, Lucky360! How are you? Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant, so it may help with some rebound issues that could occur, such as muscle cramping, but it's not likely to do much else. Its typical side effects can include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Did your doctor prescribe it?

How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately, we are now into the time of year when shortages of controlled substances usually occur, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their yearly allotted limit, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Each year, demand inevitably exceeds supply and there are shortages ...

half white pill oblong u
It looks to be a slightly larger, oblong white pill, broken in half with only an imprint of the letter U showing ## Hi Shauna, From what I can tell, the closest thing I'm seeing as far as a possible match is concerned, is a white oblong shaped pill marked with "U 0 3" on one side and scored on the other. If this is the correct pill you'd probably also be able to see half of a "0" to the right of the "U". This one in particular is a generic Norco 10/325 tablet. However there are other white pills I'm seeing which have a "U" on one half of the tablet (being divided by a score line); whereas if you were to break it in half you'd only see a "U" and nothing else.... they are just oval shaped and not necessarily elongated AND oval so I w...

Taking suboxone while pregnant
I started taking suboxone in early June. 8mg/2mg strips. 1 1/2 a day. I didn't find out I was pregnant till around 14 weeks. That's a completely different story but luckily baby is safe due to being on birth control for about 7 weeks of me not knowing yet. Anyway I wanted to get off the subs so I left message after message for my OB and heard nothing back. I finally went in for my 18 week ultrasound. When I asked about OB about what was going on he seemed very confused. He has known about the suboxone but had no clue about me wanting to get off the med because the nurse never gave the messages to him. He advised me to stay on it for the safety of the baby. He said chances are he won't have withdrawals after birth but just incase it is easier for him to treat outside the womb...

psychiatrist in delaware that will prescribe xanax, adderall and suboxone
Im still iffy with opiates and H, and still dip into them at times, but im diagnosed with severe a.d.d and abrupt panic attacks and anxiety disorder. Does anyone know of a doctor of any kind that will prescribe me my adderall, xanax, and suboxone in the state of delaware? In extreme need and help!!!! ## Hello, Ruby! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. However, it isn't likely that any doctor is going to prescribe all of these medications for you. Suboxone can only be prescribed by a doctor that has the waiver to treat with it. You can search for one in your area by using the zip code search on the website, click here. They're contact information will be included, so you can call them to see if they are taking new patients. This is a...

I went to the doctor yesterday for swimmers ear in both ears.The problem had started a day before.When I went to the Doctor I was managing pain very well with Naproxen. I was given 500 mg Ciproflaxcin oral 1 pill 2 x daily and ofloxacin otic solution 0.3% 10 drops each ear 1 x daily. There is absolutely no relief in my right ear. It is actually much worse than when I went too see the Doctor 34 hours a go.Very swollen inside ear and face around ear is swollen and hot to the touch. I can not hear out of this ear, extreme pressure feels like heat in my ear and sharp pain as well as throbbing. I slept all night with a heating pad on my ear.The left ear however, is much better.

Doxycycl Hycl 100mg When to eat?
Instructions say to take on empty stomach, So when can I eat breakfast, lunch or dinner? What is the wait hours between the first pill of the day and the second. I just need to know if I take the first pill early in morning when can I eat breakfast? ## Hello, Tori! How are you? Only about 20 minutes to half an hour, not very long. Just enough time to let it start digesting and entering your blood stream. This antibiotic may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea and non-allergic skin rash. Is there anything else I can help with?

what is the difference between oxycoddonone and tramadol
I was taking hydrocodone 7.750 now they have me on norco 10/325. I don't feel that the new medication is working as well, I get really upset stomach aches and also takes long to heal my pain which I have two bad disc the pain is so bad like if I'm about to give birth or if someone is tearing my back apart,can somebody help me please. ## All of these are opiate analgesics, but Tramadol is the weakest of what you've listed, Hydrocodone would be next and Oxycodone is the strongest of these. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Thus, if the Norco isn't working, you may want to speak to your doctor about trying Oxycodone or Percocet, which combin...

why will your pain management dismiss you
In what cases will a pain management doctor dismiss they give you any chances? ## Hello, Miche 4! How are you? I really depends on the pain management doctor, however, if you are seeing one, you will most likely have to sign a treatment contract, which will lay out the specifics for you. Some of them require that you not take pain medications from any other doctor for any reason, some require regular sampling to prove you're taking medications as prescribed. Any violation could result in your being dismissed, without notice. Are there any other questions or concerns?
