xanax blue oval gg258
Just recently received another form of Xanax 2039/dark blue oval, very different reaction compared to the GG258 I've been taking? Is this difference normal? ## Hello, David! How are you? Can you please double check the markings and post back? I can't find anything with 2039 on it. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. ## Sorry type "O" number was 2089 V, thanks David

Shes is a pug about 17 pounds. I don't think she eat the whole pill.it has been 5 hrs ago .she vomited up a lot . Still getting sick but not as bad. She is a little loopy . Do u think she will be ok ## Hello, Suki! How is your pup? Please contact your veterinarian. I am not very knowledgable on the effects of medications in animals. Thus, I don't know if any type of damage may be done, if this may be toxic or etc. Did she or did she not eat the whole pill?

alternative for metoprolol
i just started taking metoprolol for a fast heart rate.i am having terrible side effects.what are my other options to treat this condition?thnks ## Hello, Suzy Q! How are you? What side effects are you having? Its most common ones include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. There are other medications you can try and your doctor should be able to prescribe an alternative. However, most side effects do wear off, after about 4 weeks or so, once your body gets used to the medication. How long have you been taking it?

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

Xanax Vicodin Valium Help
Ok, I live in Las Vegas Nevada here is the question Why is so hard to get my Medication now a days? Since I came back from Michigan 2 years ago I've been living nothing but a hell life month by month getting my prescriptions refilled. I am a person who has always went the alternative medicine route until one day someone introduced me to a doctor who prescribed me Valium for adhd and sleeping. I've been on it almost 8 years and it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to get off. Also a drunk driver hit me and my knee's are shot and I need surgery on my back so the Doctor put me on Hydrocodone aka Vicodin. (The reason I put Xanax in the title is because I found out they are almost they same exact drug). Let me clear I don't want to be on these medications but now I HAVE TO BE thanks to...

Alcohol and pretizonr
I am taking a low dose of pretizone for poison ivy. I have two days left on pretizone. I take norvasc and a diuretic for hypertension. Can I have a glass of wine while on these meds? ## Hello, Nanny! How are you? It is never a good idea to mix alcohol with prescription medications. It can worsen the side effects of them, which may make one drink affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. Additionally, alcohol can be cardiotoxic, so it may not be safe for you drink. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Life on morphine
As I read I just don't know if I should come off 60 mg in the am and 30 in PM. Back surgery conic pain for years now and the MS works. But, is it why I am depressed? I approached my DR about coming off, not much encouragement. Anyway I am 2 days at 60 mg. What's worse pain or the medication. ## Hello, Ralph! How are you doing? Yes, narcotics are actually depressants, so it could be causing or contributing to your depression. However, rather than stopping medication entirely, it might be better for you to just try a different one to see if something else doesn't cause as much depression. 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. Have you tried any oth...

The new Oxycontin with the imprint OP compared to the old Oxycontin with the old imprint OC
I got my Oxycontin (name brand) today and thought i had gotten the generic because it had OP imprinted on it instead of th regular OC imprinted on it. I ask my phamacist what was going on and he said that Oxycontin had changed their logo. I noticed the pill was slighly bigger so when i took my pill i noticed it give me heartburn really bad just like the generic did when i tried the generic. Now i am in pain, i have the heartburn, and i don't know if i will be able to hold this new formular down because i am so sick at my stomach. Do you think Purdue will ever change the formula of Oxycontin back to the original? I sure hope so. I am going to start a petition to get the old formula back again.

Changed Psychiatrist due to Move
I have seen the same psychiatrist for 5 years and recently moved to Hattiesberg, MS. My family doctor referred me to a new Psych, however when I called to schedule the appt the receptionist said that the doctor does not prescribe adderall or xanax. She told me that when she asked what current meds I take. REALLY....the doctor never even met me or reviewed my medical history. ## Michelle, If the meds are that important to you, ask your doctor to refer someone else. Tell him you don't feel comfortable with the first referral.

kvk tech vs Caraco oxycodone
My pharmacy just refilled my oxycodone 30mg Rx with kvk tech instead of Caraco mfg. They look the same and have the same 224 imprint. Does anyone know if this is the same company and same medicine or if it is indeed mfgd by two different ones. If so, what are your thoughts?
