what is hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 used for
I have.multiple sclerosis legs pains and body pains ## Hi Meletha, I'm very sorry to hear about your condition. But to answer your question, Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen is a narcotic analgesic used to treat moderate to severe pain. 5/325 is regarded as one of the lowest doses you can get, so god forbid in the event that things escalate, there is always room to ask your doctor for a stronger version of the same medication. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen Details I hope this helps!

i have been diagnosed with osteonecrosis of the jaw can it be stopped there a cure
I want to know what other people are feeling and is there a cure? I am afraid of this. ## @LaIA, When it comes to treatment options for Osteonecrosis, rheumatology.org states that most patients who develop this condition are often treated with "rinses, antibiotics, and oral pain relievers"; which according to them, can reportedly help resolve a case of Osteonecrosis within months. However from what I've read, apparently it is also difficult to diagnose which risk factors could've caused this condition to begin with, since Osteonecrosis itself is said to be diagnosed only by the presence of an exposed bone, lasting several weeks. But if you can determine what may have caused it to develop overtime, I imagine that it would probably make future preventative measures much ea...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Diltiazem 360 er
At one time I was on Tiazac 360 er and then the pharmacy put me on Diltiazem 360. The Tiazac 360 er is more economical than Diltiazem 360 er. I wanted to switch back to Tiazac 360 er. I have 5 refills left, and I asked the girl at the pharmacy and she said that I would have to have a new prescription. I thought that both of these were generics and I do not understand why I would have to have another prescription. The Tiazac works just as well as Diltiazem. Thanks for your help! ## Hi Dave, Tiazac is actually a brand name of Diltiazem; but I too find it odd that they would make you switch off of something that's working just fine without giving any specific reasoning behind their decision. Instead they just say "here you go!" and that's that. I personally prefer brand nam...

looking for an Ohio dr that will prescribe pain meds
Iv been In 3 car accidents , fallen down a flight of steps, and have bad arthritis. And k need something to relieve my pain. My dr office will not prescribe vicoden anymore. Which is what I use to take. Any ideas?? ## Hello, Sheryl! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, no general practice doctor will be able to prescribe it, anymore. If you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The quickest way to get in with one might be to ask your current doctor to refer you to someone, but there are no guarantees that they will prescribe Vicodin or anything else. Hydrocodone combinations have also been changed to schedule 2, so you can no longer have refills on them. This is a narcotic analges...

lyrica and subutex
can Lyrica and subutex be used at the same time ## @kb39, From what I've seen posted on various drug interaction checkers, apparently using Subutex (buprenorphine) with Lyrica (pregabalin) can increase your risk of central nervous system depression; potentially leading to serious side effects that could be fatal. With that said, you may need to discuss this in more detail with your doctor as well, to ensure that frequent monitoring is done during your time on these medications. This way they can better determine whether or not you require an adjustment in your dosage in order to safely continue using both medications at the same time. I hope this helps!

round pink with GG739 on it what is it
round pink with GG739 0n it ,what is it. ## Hi Bob, How are you? From what I could gather, the round pink pill you have marked GG 739 is reportedly identified as a 75mg Diclofenac sodium delayed release tablet, used to relieve mild to moderate pain. Like other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) Diclofenac works by stopping the body's production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. For verification of the pill's identity, this particular tablet is listed as being manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. I hope this helps!

trying to identify a medication tablet
white scored pill with "ph" on one half and "125" on other half ## Hi david, I haven't found any matches for the pill you are describing, however there is a possibility it could be Zolpidem. Zolpidem is the active ingredient in Ambien, a prescription sleeping pill. Where did you find the pill? If it's not Zolpidem, it could possibly be some sort of OTC or foreign medication. If you can't have it lab tested, I recommend that you safely dispose of it. Has anyone else seen a white pill with the imprint ph 125? If so, please post any information you can! ## I've got 2 of these given to me today by a friend at college, everything is in a foreign language except for '10mg' And ofcourse the PH125 White round pill. Can't find a damn thing on it and I ...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them eac...

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...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

local shortage of hydrocodone my mother takes 10 325

I'm having this same exact problem, my pharmacy CVS keeps ordering it but it never comes in.

klonopin brand name not available
Hi as everyone who takes brand name Klonopin knows its on backorder. I have try the generic it don't work for me.. But that is at the same mg as the Brand. I was wondering if anyone has try the generic at a higher mg? And if so did it work like the brand name? ## Hi Sharon, Sorry to hear that the generic didn't end up working for you. I did want to point something out though that may be the reasoning as to why it's not as effective as the brand name (even at the same milligrams). I think it really comes down to the "inactive/non-medicinal" ingredients that they also put into these tablets. These ingredients are known to vary between brands and generics alike, but I have also heard that companies will often use cheaper binders and fillers in their generic versions to ...

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...
