How often can oxycodone be filled?
I have been on oxycodone and methadone for 9 yrs. because of 2 failed back surgeries. My doctor moved down the street and the new nurse says if they where filled 8/20 then can not be filled until 9/20. She said her computer wouldn't let her fill it sooner and the doctor would lose his license if he filled it to soon. I take them exact therefore I'll be out. Yet the pharmacist said she could call to have them fill it sooner. Does anybody know what the government says? so I can go back to the doctor with something. I have a feeling he doesn't know what she is doing. Maybe to lazy to look into a program that's screwed up?

over dosed
What would happen if I took 120 anti depressants all together? ## crazy girl, Why would you want to take 120 of anything at one time? If you are thinking about harming yourself, you need to call a hot line and ask for help. Whatever the problem is today, it is always better later.

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

With deepest appreciation, Keith ## Keith, Hi I'm in Teller county. Wish I could give you the name of a doctor, but that's been a problem for all of the chronic pain patients in Teller county since last year when our doctor retired.

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.

SIDE JUST SAYS UPJOHN 90..WHAT MG.IS THIS.COLOR IS DEEP PURPLE AND I FIND THEY R STRONGER THAN BLUE FOOTBALLS.

Keragro is a rip-off
DON"T USE myKERAGRO. They have AWFUL customer service, inaccurate terms and conditions and the product is very overpriced. They made it a nightmare to return the product. There are plenty of products on the market with the same ingredients, from a reliable source AND cheaper. ## I have not received my pills yet!!!!! Its been a week. How do I cancel?! ## I'll post this here, again, before anyone else spends money on a such a product… Regardless of what they claim, the length of your hair, how thick it is, how fast it grows and etc. are genetically predetermined. There is nothing that can be done to change it. Some nutrients can help with the health of you hair, so it may look and feel better, but nothing will make it grow and faster, longer or be thicker than your genes des...

kera gro hair tabs
got these in the mail I ordered them,but afraid to take them they were not conpletey sealed! ## I ordered them too for being ignorant. These people dont eveb have a website. Its a treally fishy new company. They dont list any inredients, dont have a real working site and what they sent you isnt a trial, its a full sized bottle that you can use 14 days worth of it for free and return it after. If you dont return it after 14 days they will charge you for the entire bottle which is $85 dollars. I fell for this because I didnt bother to read and just ordered it because I was in a hurry and when I got home and read I was like O.O they are a typical scammy site with really cheesy claims. I checked out their "website" and they lie about several things like that ou can contact then by e...

teva amoxicillin 500
Does Teva make amoxicillin 500 without red or yellow dye or Titanium Dioxide in it? I have allergies to all these plus aspirin. ## Hello, Trish! How are you? There are several companies that manufactured Amoxicillin, so you may want to look beyond Teva. Several make it in tablets, without any dyes or TD in them. You should just inform your pharmacist of your allergies and they'll be able to help you find an appropriate one to take. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

near hamilton alabama who will prescribe xanax
I need a doctor somewhere close to Hamilton Al. For xanax for cronic anexity disorder and helping stages of menopause. My doctor left to practice in California n I have full Medicaid on disability. The low dose of valum don't help. Can anyone help me? ## Hello, Stars! How are you? Benzodiazepines are not usually prescribed to help with menopausal symptoms. If hormones are not deemed appropriate, antidepressants, such as Prozac are commonly used. SSRI antidepressants can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. As for anxiety, you'll need to see a specialist for that. Do you currently have a PCP that may be able to refer you to someone? That would likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. Benzodiazepines carry the risk of b...

Ive been taking tramadol for aprox 8yrs nonstop other than a 7week break. Ive back problems and my knees are broken down do to years of rough wear and tear on top of many injuries. Ive no health insurance either. Truth b told,i cannot function very well at all without taking the tramadol. So i am checking to see of anyone has any insight or suggestions as to where i may b able to purchase tramadol after the 18th of august which is when tramadol becomes a controlled substance. Im aware that ordering overseas is risky but going without the meds is not an option. I am very worried about the change in classification. I never expected anything like this to happen, had i known and not been ignorant to the possibility of not being able to order tramadol online i would have done something diffe...

Eliquis
My 91 year old Mom was switched to Eliquis and has been totally exhausted and suffering from confusion and memory loss. Anyone else having the confusion/memory loss issue? ## Hello, Freddie! How is your mom doing? Yes, those are known side effects of taking Eliquis, along with bruising, fainting and headache. Side effects should start to taper off in severity after about 4 weeks, as her body adjusts to the medication. But if they don't, or if they worsen, her doctor should be consulted. Is there anything else I can help with?

oxycodone shortage 10mg
I received a call that my oxycodone was ready for pick up at Rite Aid and once I got there the pharm tech had told me that it was out of stock and there wasn't anything they could do or substitute it with when I had asked, "I've taken this medication for years and never had this happen, do you know when you'll be in stock?" The pharm tech replied, "I don't know when they will come in, it usually takes at least two weeks anyway and there isn't anything I can do for you, you can have your prescription back" and gave me my prescription and told me to try elsewhere because she was too busy to call other Rite Aids. I was shocked. I took my prescription to Walgreens and they were also out of stock but in between customers the pharm tech called all Walgreens...

methadone in ga
need doctor that gives methadone for pain near Athens ga. or a dr that will do it online. its the only med that truly helps and doesn't mess me up. can not go to clinic bc cant drive anymore. will someone pls help me. if anyone could help it would be deeply appreciated. pls contact me as soon as possible {edited for privacy}. ## Hello, Koda! How are you? There are a couple of issues that you should be aware of… The first is that such a medication cannot be prescribed online. Law requires that a doctor evaluate a patient, in person, regularly, before prescribing controlled substances. The second is that if you have already gone to a clinic, then that is in your medical records and no regular doctor will be able to prescribed it for you. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has t...

Corcidin overdose
Has anyone experienced, long term side effects from Coricidin. ## Hello, David! How are you? Coricidin is an over the counter product that's used to treat cold symptoms, so no one should be taking so much of it or taking it so often that they need to worry about long-term side effects. If you are suffering that frequently from cold symptoms, then you most likely do not have a cold and should see your doctor. Which Coricidin formulation did you take?

Needing to find a doctor who prescribes pain medicine
I have just moved here five weeks ago from Birmingham, Alabama. I now find that I cannot get a doctor to prescribe the pain medications that I have been using for some five years. I have had three cervical surgeries and one lumbar surgeries. I have among other things, degeneration of the spine. I also have a list of about seven other maladies that I can't begin to name because of their names. I am in constant severe pain without my Exalgo and Hydromorphone. I will run out in ten days and I'm told that I won't be able to even get into a doctor who prescribes these types of meds for at least five weeks. What do they expect me to do in the meantime? Does anyone know of a doctor that prescribes pain medications that doesn't have a LONG waiting list. I'm desperate. I also...

propan with iron multivitamins
is profan vit. is effective? ## Really, the effectiveness depends on what you are using it for. If you are using it as a vitamin supplement, then yes. However, many of these products are claimed to help treat a lot of conditions and this has really never been proven. Propan with Iron contains 25mgs Buclizine, 80mgs Iron, 10mgs Nicotinamide, 10mgs B1, 5mcgs B12, 1mg B2 and 5mgs of B6. It is listed in the Indian drug databases as helping to improve the appetite. Side effects may include: nausea and drowsiness. Do you have any other questions? ## Good day, im Christian,i would like to ask if what "1 cap bid" means is? ## does taking propan and myra 400e at the same time bad? ## 1 cap bid means 1 capsule twice a day ## Is it safe to take Propan vitamins even when you're breastfe...

Need Help with Suboxone Withdrawal. Stopped last Thursday
I was on Suboxone 8mg from the time of my inpatient detox from opiates. I was supervised in a proper taper. Every time I cut back I felt better. After 11 days on 1/8th of a 2mg strip, I stopped the Suboxone. I haven't been able to sleep since. I spin like a top all night. My back was injured Sat. a week ago. Would this be a withdrawal symptom or back issue or both? How long will the withdrawal symptoms last. I'm feeling like a zombie from NO SLEEP. Going to chiropractor, who says I injured S1 disc. So confused and don't want to go back on that awful drug!! ## Hello, Sula! How are you feeling? I'm sorry that you're miserable. It is most likely a withdrawal symptom, it can take several weeks for them to completely wear off. Suboxone does contain a potent narcotic, so s...
