Trying to find out how to get on pain medication for my back pain how to get a good doctor to trust and help me with what I need ## Hello, Kid! How are you? Well, to be honest, pain medication should be the last resort, after trying other options to solve your problems. They carry the risks of causing problematic side effects and many of them can be habit forming, such as opiates. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, that would be the best place to start, they can refer you for some exams and evaluations to see what's causing your pain and then refer you on to a specialist, if needed. Can anyone recommend any good doctors in WA?

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...

using gabapentin
I have been on gabapentin for about 2 weeks. First 3 days i was a zombie, didnt even kno where i was. It was crazy. After that, i felt nothing weird. Before i was on it, i literally couldnt sit still anymore. I had pain, itching, crawling, in my arms and legs. I wanted to pull my limbs off. Now i can actually sit. I cant believe the difference. I feel no bad side effects except i wanna eat alot. and im gassy. ## Awesome! I'm so very glad that it's working well for you. It is an anticonvulsant that can also help with certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Usually, the side effects will hit a peak at about 3 to 4 weeks in, then start to taper off in severity, whic...

54 year old male with severe chronic pain desperately looking for someone who can help me with alleviating my chronic pain
I suffer from severe chronic pain with all verified documentation. I have been on a couple of pain clinics that treated my chronic pain with prescribed methadone and oxycodone for breakthrough pain and had great success. then after being on these pain clinics for a lengthy period of time with ni incidents. I was told that they cannot continue prescribing me my necessary medications and i have to find another pain clinic or a new doctor i need very serious help ## Hello, Tony! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry about the problem you're having. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to stick with a pain managem...

oxycodone shortage in las vegas
I'm an older man in real pain, I have driven and visited 60 pharmacies in the last 3 days to get my percocet prescription filled in Las Vegas and am unable to find them! I inquired if I had my prescription changed to norco if I co get those the answer has been no. Why can the government force citizens to live in pain, I need a tooth pulled but am afraid to have it done as there will be no pain relief!!! ## Hello, Dave! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you've run into. However, we are now into the time of year when there is virtually always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. To try to keep better track of the supply, each manufacture can only produce a certain amount each year and once they reach that amount, they can...

Does lyrica help for neuropathy?
Have neuropathy in feet. Take 2400 mgs a gabapentin daily. Would lyrica help> ## Hello, David! How are you? It may help you more than the Gabapentin does, but there's no way to say for sure, you'd have to try it and see. It is a very similar medication, Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which is also an anticonvulsant that's been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Side effects typically include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with?

Verapamil Er - Capsule vs. Tablet
Pharmacy has changed my RX from a capsule to tablet (with approval from Dr.) Dosage is the same 240 and both are XR. Pharmacy says they can't get capsules any more, only tablets. Since the change-over (about 2 -3 months ago) my blood pressure has been inching back up and now soldily back in the "high blood pressure" readings. Doctor has temporarily increased my dosage of lisinopril (I take both) but wants my primary care to do a complete work up. Has anyone else had problems with tablet form not working? (Capsule worked for at least 2 years or more the change is only since switch to tablet.) My symptoms with uncontrolled high blood pressure include severe headaches and double vision. It is my top number (systolic?) that is increasing from 80s range to avg 150 and up. (I am f...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

generic pills
round, pink with GG739 on it. what is it.thank you. ## Hey Bob, I'm not sure if you're the same Bob who's asked this type of question before, where I had also left a response... but in case you're not, this particular pill reportedly contains 75mgs of Diclofenac sodium (delayed release); manufactured by Sandoz. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug widely recognized for treating inflammation, pain, and fever; but happens to have other a few other off-label uses as well for conditions such as actinic keratoses and migraines. If you'd like, you can also learn more about this drug on the page for Diclofenac Details I hope this helps!

People on Humira over 65 years old
The Dr has recommended Humira for me. I am very hesitant as I feel at my age-66-it may not be the wisest thing to do. I would love to hear from those of you my age who have had experience with this drug. Thanks so much! ## Hi Arlene, When it comes to determining if any particular drug will work for you, there's really no honest way to know for sure until you try it yourself. Chronological age is just a number and does not always reflect "biological age", which in my opinion would be a more accurate way of diagnosing the overall state of your body and mind, based on how healthy you are as an individual. I don't know if doctor's also take this into account before recommending you try something like Humira, but no matter your age I would only do what you feel comfortabl...

round white xanax no markings
About the size of US valium with a split score on one side. ## Doesn't sound like any Xanax? ## @Tom, Depending where or who you got this from, my guess is that it's either a home-made counterfeit or manufactured in some other country outside of the US, where they are known for selling discreet unmarked drugs. One thing is for certain though, and that is, that it's definitely NOT a legitimate "US-based" prescription drug, since the FDA requires all of these medications to have markings for determining the substance, dosage, and manufacturer. But if you have any other specific details relating to how you came about getting it, I think that will help give us a strong indication as to whether or not it's even real. Also, how would you assume that it's xanax if t...

Suboxone withdrawal support and advice
Hello all! I am now on day #11 of no suboxone after 3 years of being on it for Tramadol dependancy after numerous shoulder surgeries from an old football injury. I was able to ween down to 1-1.5 mgs a day before stopping. I was so sick of the Dr's appts, fees, trips to the pharmacy, etc. although I never felt like I was "using" while on subs, I never felt like I was sober either. I've been trying to stop for almost 6 months now but I kept going back to the Dr after only being able to go a few days here and a few days there before giving up due to bad withdrawal. This month, I blew off my appt because I knew that that would be the only way I could stick to my guns. It was "ripping off the bandaid" so to speak. Because I canceled the appt, even if I were to try to ...

oxycodone in stock anywhere?
i needi wanted too know if any pharmacy in florida that can feel the perscrption for oxycodone i appreceate your help i have to much pain and i can not find the anywhere i have medical card thank you i appreciate ## Apparently there are a ton of other people within these forums having the same issue with filling prescriptions in the state of Florida. So you're definitely not alone on this matter. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing what pharmacy has any given medication in stock, at any given time. From what I could gather, there was a shortage, due to imposed manufacturing limits at the end of the year, so it may just be taking awhile for all pharmacies to get a supply back in to fill prescriptions. In the meantime you may want to consider ordering from a legitimate online pha...

is it ok to take two each 200 mg ibuprofen and 1 10 mg hydrocodone325 mg apap at one time
My wife has horrible tooth pain in the upper and lower right molars. She just took two ea 200 mg ibuprofen about 1 hr ago with no relief. Can she take 1 10 mg hydrocodone/325 mg apap now? ## No, the two anti-inflammatories, Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen should not be mixed, that is too high of an amount of them and it raises the risk of bleeding and other complications. Has she contacted a dentist? ## correction. Ibuprofen and acteminophen serve 2 distinctly differant objectives and are wholey compatible to be used with each other. In fact is quite often perscrbed together. Ask doctor for cor5rect dossages. ## acetaminophen (Tylenol) does NOT have anti-inflammatory properties. It is ONLY an analgesic(pain reliever) and an antipyretic (fever reducer ## I have a severe toothache. I've b...

White Xanax Bar G3722
the two G"s are different. 1 is more angular and 1 is rounded. just FYI ## The more rounded 1s r real. KMXUA ## @Casey, To confirm, the pill you have is in fact Xanax (Alprazolam) 2 mg. Xanax (Alprazolam) is primarily used to treat moderate to severe anxiety disorders (e.g., social anxiety disorder) and panic attacks, and is used as an adjunctive treatment for anxiety associated with moderate depression. Manufacturer: Greenstone Limited National Drug Code (NDC): 59762-3722 The difference in the look of the G's could just mean that they are from two different manufacturers.
