Want to be slim
I have started the pink box of Fruta Planta for the past 6 days and I don't see one bit of difference, matter of fact I am eating more. I crave more sugar in the evening ( I work night shift) I only want to lose 20lbs I'm 5'8 and 165lbs. I feel something is wrong with me or the box of fruta planta lol but I'm committed to 30 days, maybe my body is slow to get started. ## This is just an over the counter supplement product that isn't actually proven to help with anything. Have you consulted your doctor for weight loss advice? Usually the best and safest way is to eat a healthy diet and get a lot of proper exercise.

Quit suboxone
It's been a month without suboxone and I tapered down very low so it wasn't too bad but depression is horrible. Will it stop? I have one thought, doom! I'm scared. I have a traumatic brain injury due to a car accident where I fractured my skull, and broke my neck. I was on suboxone for 3 years at the time and 3 years since. Highest dosage was 4 mg. I'm on cymbalta, max dose. Seroquol. Now lotuda. I almost want to go back on sub. And just live on 1 mg. never had depression like this. Just feel like I'm not gonna kick the depression. If I didn't have 3 young sons I would contemplate taking my own life but would never do that to my wife or kids. Just wondering if anyone has been in hell like this? ## Dear John, I'm so sorry 2 hear about yor situation. But, wanti...

Reduce 15 Mg
A frien od mine gave som slimming pills called Reduce 15 mg that he bought in Thailand. They are not allowed in the country where I live, so I can't consult my doctor. I'm healthy but I have suffered from stress due to too much work, and have been medicated for that a couple of times, though not currently. I'm not fat, but I have gained 20 kg due to stress. Do you know which secondary efects these pills could have or if I should take them at all? ## From what I can find, Reduce contains the active ingredient Subutramine, which has been pulled from the market in many countries, due to the severe dangers associated with it. It can cause cardiac related dangers, such as: accelerate heart rate, trouble breathing, elevated pulse and elevated blood pressure. There have been some i...

20mg Oxycodone Immediate Release
I just started the 20mg Immediate release,3 a day and my pharmacy that i have used for years stated my Dr. would have to increase my meds within 2 months to at least 4 a day. Just wondering why he doesnt have me on a long acting pill and are the immediate release oxycodones better??? 3rd stage cancer suvivor,DDD in cervical and lumbar,neuropathy,herniated discs and 8 surgeries in the past 3 years... Whats the best out there, have tried the MS Contin and now finally have full insurance.. any replies greatly appreciated ## Hello, Barbieann! How are you? There is no way to say for sure that you'll need an increase that fast, it can actually vary from person to person, depending on your tolerance to narcotics. And these aren't immediate release, that's only available in a 5mg ca...

endocet vs oxycodone
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS AND MY DRUG STORE RAN OUT AND GAVE ME ENDOCET ?SAID IT WAS THE SAME THING BUT MY BODY TELLS ME THAT IT'S NOT THE SAME.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS CHANGE? ## in reply to jim, i have to agree, i have been taking oxycodone for a while now, and got a new script for endocet, and it does not do anywhere near as much as the last prescription did... ## Well, I am not sure what you were on previously, since you just say Oxycodone, but Endocet is a combination drug containing both Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. The reason you may be having a problem, however, is due to the fact that generic meds ARE allowed, by law, to differ from name brands by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%. They also DO NOT HAVE TO BE EXACTLY IDENTICAL. I know the doctor...

what is doxytet the green capsule for?
I had some pains in my belly button, sometimes discover that I have a brown smelly discharge and pains (similar to period pains) in my lower abdonimal (left side). I went to the clinic and they gave me the green doxytet capsules(100mg) and metronidazole (200mg). The nurse that was assisting me said nothing is wrong but I'm still experiencing these pains. ## Doxytetracycline is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections. A bacterial infection could explain the symptoms you were experiencing, a smelly discharge is usually indicative of one. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Learn more Doxytet details here. If it isn't clearing up, you should see your doctor, as it may not be the right...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Methadone Maintainance & WEIGHT GAIN!!!HELP!!!
I AM A METHADONE MAINTAINANCE PATIENT, CLEAN FROM OXYCONTIN FOR THREE+ YEARS & I HAE PACKED ON 40 POUNDS! I AM RETAINING WATER & EXPERIENCE HORRIBLE CONSTIPATION...ANYONE WITH SIMILAR ISSUES OR TIPS TO HELP ME OR FIND THE CAUSE??? ## Kali, I've taken Methadone for years (chronic pain). It is a side effect of methadone on the constipation & retaining water (edema). Try taking a stool softener like colace two every night. If that don't help take a mild laxative also. On the retaining water you can take a water pill over the counter or ask your doc about taking a diuretic. Sorry I don't know about the weight gain. But, I've got you beat on the weight gain 55 POUNDS!!! Good Luck, Gina ## I have gained over 20 pounds, but I don't think that it is due to the Me...

Lamictal is an Aromatase Inhibitor
Hey all - I've been on Lamictal for about 8 months (bipolar) and I titrated up to 200mg, except during the jump from 150-200mg I quit smoking cigarettes and marijuana at almost precisely the same time I upped the Lamictal dose. I read in some medical literature that nicotine suppresses the effectiveness of Lamictal, and I can only speculate about the marijuana/Lamictal relationship. So there I was thinking that I was taking 150mg, but while smoking, my body probably wasn’t absorbing/utilizing that much (quantitative difference? not sure). From the dose jump, 150-200mg, I noticed a vast increase in the substantiality of side effects that Lamictal proposed upon me from the get-go. Light headedness, word-finding problems, difficultly reading/spelling, handwriting and math out the...

CVS NO LONGER CARIES RITALN prescription/generic???
I was informed by one of the pharmacists at the pharmacy window at the CVS in Medford, ny that they no longer carry this medication. Is that true? They have filled my scripts in the past and have even told me a few times that they wouldn't have it in for a couple days but they never said they no longer carry it. It is odd to me because it's a common medication. Even though I am prescribed ritalin, they usually always give me the generic. So I imagine they were referring to both. Does anyone know this to be true? I have tried to search this on the Web but have only found horror stories of CVS pharmacy ' s customer service and denying meds, nothing about them saying they don't have it anymore. ## Hello, Cyndi! How are you? Im sorry, but I haven't found any information ...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Cymbalta And Weight Gain
I gained 68 lbs while on Abilify. Now four years later my weight is still 30 lbs over my normal. I still have some depression and very severe anxiety so my doc wants me to try cymbalta 20mg once a day. I would rather be depressed than severely overweight. Anyone know if cymbalta tends to cause weight gain or loss? ## Actually, one of its most common side effects is decreased appetite, so it might actually cause weight loss. Learn more Duloxetine details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, I have been on cymbalta for about 4 years now, after a suicide attempt. I started off on one capsule a day which wasn't enough so it was increased to 2 a day. I fell in love with life again. I find it amazing and I can't do without them. HOWEVER! My weight has increased dramati...

combiflam side effect
I am 18 years old i am taking combiflam everyday for my muscle pain. Is it harmful? ## Hello, Mansi! How are you? At your age, if you are having daily muscle pain, you need to see a doctor and have it checked it out. There is no reason that should be going on, all the time, in one so young. Do you have a PCP that you can consult?
