'K. I'll try 2nd report about my personal experience and need for any help to find a Class Action Sit against Purdue and all invoved in the mistreatment of Chronic Pain Patients who have been prescribed the reformulated oxicontin OP. Some of my history of treatment for my Chronic Pain. I have suferred since 1980's : was prescribed Vicodin until I could no longer tolerate tylenol and was referred to the "Pain aClinic in my HMO.

kvk tech oxycodone 30 mg
Regarding KVK Tech oxycodone 30mg / K-9 ...Garbage ! I have serious pain from two separate problems. Bottom line is Walgreens switched from Activis to KVK recently and I noticed the difference within one day, pain waking me more than usual and early withdrawal sensations. I should add that I don't misuse or abuse, all I want is pain relief. I'm fed up with fighting every step of the way to manage my pain (resulting from injuries sustained as a firefighter/ medic and a connective tissue disease) Thanks to the war on drugs and so many people overdosing, the government has the doctors and pharmacies all running scared, etc.. So people who are legit and truly suffering every day are screwed. Seems like they forgot about us. I wish these people AND the addicts/ abusers could feel wha...

Marcella help
Can I take my tramadol tonight after taking 25 mg ephedra this morning ## @Marcella, Based on information I'm finding pertaining to drug interactions, in my opinion it would be best to wait at least a day or two in between doses. Reason being is that both Tramadol and Ephedrine are known to cause seizures individually, and taking the two together in such a short time frame may increase your risk of seizures THAT much more. So it's probably just a good idea to play it safe if you have any reservations about this. The estimated half life of Tramadol is reported to be up to 6-7 hours, whereas half the dose you took and then half of that half would be divided every passing 6-7 hours until it's no longer working in your body. If you calculate this from the point of your first dos...

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...

Swimmers ear with treatment worse in 1ear better in the other
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. So far I have taken 4 of the pills and have used the drops 5 times. I called the doctor today and she ordered me 20 mg

New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on???!?
Hello all, I am a longtime chronic pain sufferer. I have taken opiates for pain for over 10 years. I recently got a prescription filled (from a well known pharmacy chain in the U.S.) and I was given these new Watson 853 white (not yellow) hydro 10/325 pills. I wanted to ask the forum here if any of you have had the same experience with them as I have. I know there are some very smart people with advanced chemistry knowledge here that may have delved deeper into whats going on with these things. They are ineffective for me. I've taken hydrocodone 10/325 for 10+ years and have never ever had a problem with pills being ineffective but that is the case with these pills. I've had about every brand you can think of and never an issue. Ever. I thought nothing of the color change when I...

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in seattle washington
Severe Back pain - ptsd - severe head aches. looking for doctor maybe VA will VA perscribe.. also they lost my medical records ## Hello, Brandon! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain, no one should have to suffer. However, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. I know most VA hospitals have pain management programs, so you could try contacting them. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## VA will not prescribe opiates. My Dad suffers as well and they just overload him with NSAIDS and recommend neck surgery. We are not sure that would be a great idea for someone 70+ with PTSD and no discs between C5, C6 and C7 ## I can relate, also have ptsd and back problems, all i can say is this: getting on the opiate tra...

Weaning off pristiq
I just wanted to tell all of you trying to get off pristiq, its possible. I was on pristiq for severe panic attacks for 6 months. It saved my life. It gave me a chance to slow down my career, gave me a huge wakeup call. This drug put a cloud over my brain. I was not my happy, fun loving self. I was like a step ford wife. You cant wean off this pill. I was on 50mg. I did every other day for a month. Every third day for two weeks then cold turkey. It really was not so bad. I layer on my couch for three days, cried a bit and watched movies. I'm happily on all holistic medications, no longer a slave to pristiq. If I can beat anxiety, anyone can. My biggest advice.. Exercise. Next, surround yourself with positive people. Three, talk out your problems. Good luck. ## Fantastic advice and v...

pex 2 unmarked tablets from india
So, just recieved my pex 2 blister packs in the mail today. Couldn't wait to tear into them. Absolutely no markings on the front or back. I've been reading comments on this site while waiting for my mail man to show and was a bit worried about the quality of this product. I started off by breaking one in half and letting it dissolve on my tongue. Definately detected the trademark "alp" taste and within 15 min. felt the relief I normally feel from U.S. made blue footballs. I beleive this product to be totally legit and would definitely refer this medication to my friends. ## @Estebon, I too have heard feedback about these PEX 2 Alprazolam tablets coming from India. Initially one might believe them to be fake or counterfeit because they have no markings to accurately ident...

getting the most of my testosterone/andro gel
I am on the androgel 1.62.I take for today which is about 81 milligrams a day. I've been on it for 4 months now and have started noticing a difference in muscle tone and it has made me want to start working out to maximize any possible gains does anyone have any advice on getting the most of absorbing the Andro gel. or anything I can do to help facilitate more growth and definition or even applying to different areas any information would be nice Thanks ## @greens, As someone who enjoys working out and training, my opinion for facilitating more growth and definition is to maintain a stricter diet. What works for me may not work the same for others, but what I typically do is set up macronutrient ratios for each meal (eating 5-6 times a day). I'm 6'2 and about 190 lbs; and fo...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...

Side effects of suboxone
I have been on suboxone now for just under a month. I think it is an amazing drug, i have had no cravings or interest in returning to opiates, my drug of choice was oxy. I get up every day feeling happy, and am able to take on what ever the day brings me. I am also on lexapro for depression at this time. There is one problem after i take my dose, which is 8 mg. twice a day, I am extremely tired sometimes to the point where if i sit down I will nod off, so I keep moving and can usually fight through it. I am wondering do other people feel this way or does it get better the longer you are on it? Two other things that are sometimes very bothersome are dizzyness and extreme dry mouth. I just wanted to find out other peoples experiences. Thanx ## Hey yea I get the same nod as you, it starts ...
