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...

Identify Zendol-SR is it Tramadol?
The package is from India by Zenlabs. The pills are round and light orange. They are in a blister pack containing 10 tablets and Labled as Tramadol Tablets with the name Zendol-SR. it claims to be 100 mg of sustained relief Tramadol ## From what I was able to gather, Zendol is a product of India. The reported active ingredient in Zendol seems to be Danazol. Danazol is a derivative of the synthetic steroid ethisterone, a modified testosterone. To learn more click on the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back if you do. ## A closer look does verify it is Tramadol 100 mg tablet sustained relief. ## To: Nycrr1961, I was unable to locate that this was Tramadol in any US medical site or report. May I ask where you are from and where you received your inform...

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...

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?

benzodiazepine and lexapro withdrawl
Help! I have been free of lexapro for over a year. Benzodiazepine Cree for 9 months after a very slow taper. I still suffer from anxiety like I never had before, insomnia, chronic pain, irritability and brain fog. Please warn folks not to take these drugs. I want to die almost every day. I am unable to do much. I have been working very hard on this recovery. Thanks. M W. ## Hello, Madeline! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. However, neither of those medications is a cure, so it's highly possible that you still suffer from anxiety and it may have gotten worse with time. While withdrawal can cause some rebound effects, it wouldn't last for 9 months, especially after having done a very slow taper. Have you tried anything else to treat ...

searching for a methadone docter
I am looking for a docter whi will give me methadone i have moved and the nearest clinic is 2hrs away if anyone can i can drive to charlotte nc if i need too ## Hello, Amy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, if you were previously taking it from a clinic, then going to another one is your only option. It is illegal for private doctors to prescribe it for addiction/maintenance treatment. 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. Does anyone know of one that might be closer in that area?

is oxycodone 10 mg stronger than 10mg hydrocodone
I have been on Norco 10/325 for 7 years for chronic pain and disc problems. Needless to say they quit working. Dr just switched me to Percocet 10. Is this stronger and will it help my pain?

help with tramadol
I have these tramadols and im taking methodne I heard its really bad to mix but I have really bad anxiety and don't have insurance and this is the cheapest thing I can get just don't want to over do it I've heard many people say that they are just placebo's ## Hello, Vanessa! How are you? I'm sorry about the way you're feeling. However, Tramadol is an analgesic, so it will not treat anxiety and yes, it could be dangerous to mix with your Methadone, it also tends to cause people to relapse into addiction. 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.

vicodin pill numbers
yes, I can't find a list of Vicodine that shows number on pill and strength. .. don't need photos just numbers & strength for all Vicodine. 5 to 10's ## Hi greg, Please correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't brand name Vicodin's no longer being made? I was under the impression that it was replaced by Norco. At any rate, here are some of the imprints and dosages I came across online while searching for Norco (including generics): WATSON 913: 5/325 M365: 5/325 V 3604: 5/325 NORCO 729: 7.5/325 NORCO 539: 10/325 M367: 10/325 IP 110: 10/325 There may be a few others that I missed as well, since it's not very clear which ones are still on the market and which have been discontinued. On top of that I also realize they stopped making tablets with more than 325mgs of...

butran patches problem, hot baths
I was recently prescribed Butrans patches, 10 mg. and they are to remain on for 7 days at a time. What no one told me, and this is important, as HOT baths help my pain, when patches and pills don't quite do it, is that a hot bath can cause the patch to release more medicine than is safe or intended, and can result in death. I take the Norco 10s 3x day instead of 4, because the Butrans is supposed to help fill in. I do not want to risk my life for pain control, but pain is the one thing I can't control by myself. What would be a good solution to that patch? I wore one for 7 days before I found out how dangerous it is. I need my hot baths, so now what can I do? I take ibuprofen for the inflammation, also.

Problem getting 30mg oxycodone
I live in MD and it seems like every drugstore I go to tell me (we don't carry them. I'm at my wits end with this s#it. I did find some 242's but I heard they were no good. I am in pain and need some help ## What city/county you in ## Unfortunately, we are not 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. Every year that I can remember, this has resulted in demand exceeding supply and a shortage occurring for the last few months of the year.

when do you know they are too old to take
I have hydrocodone that was prescribed in 2009. Are they still good? ## Hi gina, According to two different articles from the LA Times and Harvard Medical School, respectively, they should still be safe/effective for up to 15-30 years or more. So as long as you kept them stored properly (i.e in a cool dark place), I wouldn't worry at all about them degrading so soon. I hope this helps!

hydrocodone should it be highly restrictive
The AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, THE US BOARD OF PHARMACISTS, , TAMERICAN PHARMACISTS ASSOCIATION, THE AMERICAN OSTEOPATHiC ASSOCIATION, and almost all 50 State's boards were against this debacle we are in ## @kim, Determining whether hydrocodone should be highly restricted or not is always going to be a hot debate between those in chronic pain who need this drug to function and those in the DEA/FDA/medical field who feel a strong sense of responsibility to fight back through restrictive use of controlled substances. In my opinion, other countries such as Portugal are a better example of how restricted things should be. Over there ALL drugs are decriminalized and instead of getting thrown in jail or being reprimanded for using these substances, you are offered treatment and mental ...

Tricor/ Fenofibrate is ruining my life! Sever neck back, shoulder blade and arm pain!
Two weeks after starting Tricor, I started developing muscle stiffness that within two more weeks was so severe, I was only sleeping a couple hours a night because the pain kept me up. I went to the Dr and she said keep taking the tricor -she prescribed muscle relaxers and an NSAID pain med. They said maybe it was bad posture, and caused by working at a computer. They also suggested physical therapy. Neither helped. Two days later I went to a Chiropracter, with no relief. The next week I was calling her office again, after waiting in pain a couple days, she prescribed another kind of muscle relaxer and NSAID for pain, and again said to go to physical therapy. The medicin did nothing at all, and again I was so severly in pain, I felt as if someone was trying to rip my arms from my shoulder,

diet pills ## Please can you tell me what is effigen used for and the side affects thank you ## Sorry, I can't find any prescription drug information under that name. Is it an over the counter item? Or something from a foreign country? If so, then information will not be easy to find, because such items are not regulated like prescription drugs in the US. ## Regarding your query about effigen. Yes they are wonderful 'diet' pills, BUT certainly not on perscribtion. They are a mild form of speed! So very illegal. However, they do work re weight lose, as they give you loads of energy and hence burn off calories, and also you are not hungry. With reference to side effects I undertsand that if taken over a long period of time they can cause bladder problems. ## yes effigen are am...

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...

i have a prescription from my pain management doctor for norco 10-325 but it has been on back order each time ive tried to have it filled at not only my pharmacy Rite Aide but other major pharmacy's have also been unable to fill my prescription is their any reason for this or is there any suggestion's ## Two things are possible. One, when it was reclassified as a Schedule II the bottles the pharmacy's had were sent back to the manufacturer. It is possible they are running short or don't have any. Second, this time of year it is not unusual for Schedule II meds to become very hard to find or not be able to find them at all. The reason is because the manufacturers are only given a certain amount of active ingredients for 1 year. When that runs out, they have to wait until ...
