So much for Fortesta
Well after one month on Fortesta, Endo decided they would cancel their savings card, without telling anyone... After co-pay the cost is $155, just too much to spend. Going back on injections... Looked like it might work OK but not cool of them cancelling their card and nobody finding out until they go to refill and hear the extremely high cost. I would imagine a lot of people will be making a switch.

what pill has the numbers 523 and 325
I found a pill that has 325 on front and 523 on back ## Hello, Rae! How are you? Is it a white, capsule shaped tablet with M523 on one side and 10/325 on the back? If so, then it is a generic for Percocet that contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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.

800 mg ibprophen
How long does 800 mg ibprophen stay in you took some at 3pm it's 11pm want to go out and drink ## Hello, Simon! How are you? It actually isn't a good idea to drink within a few days of taking any NSAID. They both tend to be very harsh on the stomach and liver, so drinking while taking one could result in stomach bleeding, stomach ulceration, liver damage or failure. However, if your doctor approves of you drinking, then you should remember to only do so in moderation and make sure that you aren't driving, since it may cause worsening of the side effects, you may feel more nauseous, drowsy and dizzy than usual. Is there anything else I can help with?

THIS PILL HAS BEEN IN MY MED CABENT FOR LIKE 2 YEARS IS THERE A EXP TIME OR ARE THEY OK TO USE ## Hello, Joe! How are you> These contain 20mgs of Omeprazole, with is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. That said, if it the bottle was opened 2 years, like an over the counter bottle or in a bottle that was dispensed by your pharmacy, then they expired one year from that time. They don't get dangerous, when expired, but they do begin to lose efficacy and it would be best to dispose of them and pick up a new supply. However, if they were still sealed in the original factory container, then are usually good for 3 to 4 years. Is there anything else I c...

propranolol and or Inderal Help
Hi I need help. Ive been getting regular and optical migrains since I was 19, I am now 45. About 6 months ago I sadly went to walmarts 60 mg inderal tablets to save as I am struggeling instead of my regular inderal 60 mg capsule LA that I have been taking most my life, but the past few months the optical migrains were happening every few days instead of say once a month or so. I went back to the capsules Oct. 17th almost 2 weeks ago and I am still getting the optical ones every few days. Yes there is a lot of stress in my life but there always has been. I even quit smoking its almost a year. I eat right some times not enough I am 5 7 about 130 and I exercise. My eyes were checked and found to be good. Why is this happening? Is it normal for the capsule to take more time to get back in m...

estrogen methyltestos h tab
Post menopause - no medications for 10 years, until recently when needed help for symptoms. In my 4th month now of this tablet, taken with 10 days progesterone. Noticed yesterday a small rusty discolor on my pantiliner. This mornings noticed same when wiping after urinating. Abdomen feels like it used to during a period. Not sure what to do. ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Anytime you are post menopausal and have vaginal bleeding, you should have it checked out by your doctor. In your case, it is most likely due the hormones you're taking, but there is a chance that it could be due to something else, so it's better to have it looked into for your own health and safety. Side effects to these hormones may include nausea, headache, irritability and other hormonal type symptoms. Is ther...

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...

does klonipan stop your menstrual cycle?
I have started a new medication called klonipan and I am 10 days late on my period... Could that cause me not to have my regular menstrual cycle? ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? Yes, benzodiazepines, such as Klonopin can disrupt your menstrual cycle, it isn't common, but it is possible. Some women experience a longer cycle than normal. However, if there is a chance that you may be pregnant, then you should go ahead and check that out, unless you're using contraceptives. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for replying to that...the thing is it was like it stopped my menstrual cycle...but thank u for giving me your input very...

cervical radiculopathy
i am 17 weeks pregnant and have been in extream pain for 2 weeks what meds can i take to relive this agony ## Hello, Cassia! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry that you're in pain and congratulations on your pregnancy. Since you are pregnant, you need to speak to an OB Gyn to see what you can safely take for pain relief, in order to help ensure the best possibly outcome for you and your baby, as well as your overall safety. No one online is going to be able to say what medication might be safe for you, since we have no way of knowing your medical history, current health status, pregnancy details and etc. Do you already have an OB Gyn that you're seeing?

activated charcoal tablets
what is it used for and how safe is it. and what other medicine you should not use with it. ## It is supposedly a very safe medicine to take. Activated charcoal is a traditional remedy for treating excess stomach and intestinal gas. It works by attracting excess gas in the stomach and bowels, which binds to the surface of the charcoal powder. This relieves the discomfort caused by excess gas (flatulence), wind, indigestion and heartburn. The charcoal is not absorbed from the gut. Activated charcoal is also used in hospital emergency departments to treat poisoning. However, when used in this way, activated charcoal is given in much larger doses than those contained in this preparation. You should never attempt to treat poisoning yourself with this preparation. Cases of poisoning should a...

finding a pharmacy in las vegas with norco 10 325 stock
Where can i get my prescription norco 10/325 filled in las vegas nevada? ## having trouble finding a pharmacy that has NorCo in stock ## Got me, CVS has been sitting on my Rx for 1 week. Can't or won't say when it gets in also may not get 7.5mg/325's ## I'm sorry that you are all having a problem getting your prescriptions filled. On top of all the other changes that happened this year, we are also now into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a company has manufactured their allowed amount of the year, they must cease production until the new year. So far, I've not known of a single year where demand hasn't exceeded the supply and a shortage happened the last few months of th...

antidepressant closest to Tramadol in the brain.
I am a recovering Tramadol addict of 8 yrs. Last 3 I was taking 20-25 a day. Off internet or by phone. Had a source prob in India. Would use pre-loadable credit card called PayPower. Mailed in 2-3 days via USPS. Well in May 2014 I got sick with Adnovirus fr son an somehow that messed with Tramadol. Started having palpitations an skipped heart beat. Very scary. Went to ER. Very humiliating to say you are an addict but my own fault. See Tramadol is VERY addictive. For SOME!! It has antidepressant/anti-anxiety properties in it also. Thats why I liked it so. I was first prescribed it by orthopedic dr for tibial stress fracture. Also fibromyalgia an herniated disc in lumbar. Also had lost a child an it seemed to make me happier. Going back to ER. Dr did tons of bloodwork even on heart. Could...

Pardon my ignorance. I'm a complete novice here. Simple question. Can anyone compare these two medicines. I won't begin to try and spell the chemical names, but the numbers are tv 4096 and ep 136.

I'm very sorry that you're in pain. I'm assuming you mean Beaumont, TX? If you require regular, ongoing treatment for chronic pain, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. There are also no guarantees that such a doctor will prescribe anything.

Reclast Infusions and Dental Implants
I have had 3 Reclast infusions, Jan 2011, Feb 2012, Mar 2013. Also had chemotherapy in 2006 for a cancer diagnosis with no further evidence of disease and no further treatment. I have a 4-unit bridge that has been replaced 4 times in as many years. Dentist wants to replace with 2 implants and two crowns. Trying to assess my risks for ONJ. Finding mixed reviews, almost as many stating very low risk (less than 1%) to others indicating I should avoid any type of oral surgery at all costs. Seems like implants are my only option, though, if I want to keep my ability to eat properly, to say nothing of the cosmetic/visual issues. The bridge is very visible and loss of all 4 teeth is unacceptable. Any suggestions or evidence-based information on risks for going forward with implants? ## Hello, ...
