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...

I have been tasking oxicdone for nerve damage due to Surving a terrible case of West Nile Virus had encephalitis and did. Much damage to my spine I am always having a problem filling my scripts can you tell me which pharmacies in Fort Laudedale Florida carry the, thank you ## Hello, Mark! How are you? I am very sorry about the problems you've had. Unfortunately no, there is no listing of pharmacies according to what medication they do or do not carry. The only thing you can do is actually go to the pharmacies, with your prescription in hand and ask if they can fill it. If you have a pharmacy that you use regularly, they may start ordering it in for you each month. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, di...

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 ...

New adderall generic 10mg not as effective as normal adderall generic 10mg Please help with advice
I always go to the same pharmacy to get my prescriptions filled, but this time, I was on my way to school so I stopped at a different pharmacy and got my adderall filled there. My usual pills are generic 10mg, as are these new ones. My normal pill bottle reads: Amphetamine Salts 10mg, gen for Adderall 10mg tablet. take one tablet twice a day. These are made by Caraco Pharmaceuticals, I believe (well that's what the bottle says, so I'm assuming that's what it means). They are a turquoise-ish color, and round. The new bottle of generic pills that I just received has the same information except it says they are made by Corepharma Jtk. They are vivid blue. These new pills do not seem as effective at all. I feel like I can barely concentrate. I don't know what to do. How do I...

Changing dose time
Lopressor 25mg I have been on Lopressor 25mg for about 6 months, prescribed by my cardiologist for irregular heart beat and palpitations. I take it right before bed with a glass of water. More nights than not I wake up many time thru the night and lately I have been having trouble falling asleep. My heart beats irregularly when I lay down but if I get up and sit in a chair all is well. I would like to change the time I take the pill from night to morning. Is it safe to skip my nighttime dose and take it the next morning instead? Thanks in advance for your help. ## Hello, Harvey! How are you? I would suggest checking with your doctor, before making a change. It sounds like this medication just isn't lasting you a full 24 hours, so something needs adjusted. Were you originally instruc...

tussigon for licking
For some reason my Vet placed my aussie on tussigon for lick granuloma? I see no point in this medication. He's still licking it and its not cheap! Anyone know why he would be on this? Other than it makes him sleepy ## Hello, Dehner! How are you? It is believed that this condition is sometimes caused by psychogenic factors, such as the dog being left alone for much of the day, being confined or sudden household changes that are putting them under stress. The Hydrocodone that is in Tussigon can substitute for Endorphin and decrease the urge to lick that they feel due to the stress. Is there anything else I can help with?

Roxicet dilemma
Roxiet seems to be the only thing that helps me be able to function. I get energy, less depression and less anxiety. Is there a more non-addictive substitute. ## Hello, Tootie! How are you? No, all narcotic analgesics, such as this, carry the same risk of being habit forming and/or addictive. Usually, addiction occurs for people who experience the effects that you do, such as the energy boost and uplifting effects. What other medications have you tried to treat your issues?
