How are you? Breakthrough bleeding can occur for the first 3 months, since your body needs to adjust to the hormones in this. Other side effects may include nausea, headache and irritability. If you're concerned, please contact your doctor. Are there any other questions or concerns?

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

unavailable drixoral
I can't believe it! Every time I find a product that works for me it is discontinued. My allergies have eased up in later years but I have my times I NEED my Drixoral. Can someone else make a comparable product? Help ## I've been to CVS, Walgreen's, plus markets that have pharmacies, and no Drixoral. It is the best for allergies, and also excellent for a cold with heavy runny nose. This is terrible! ## You are not alone - There are many others reporting the same thing. The manufacturer has actually removed it from the market temporarily while they change manufacturing facilities. At least that's what they say. There are a number of other discussion about this on the site, and you may be able to find someone who has tried a different product with comparable results. Good ...

Rimonabant Safe?
I recently purchased Rimonabant 20 MG from Canada. I live in the US. I was just reading the side affects and I am a bit concerned. Should I take them? ## Hello, Sunny! How are you? You should never take such a medication, without your doctor's approval. And there's a reason this one was removed from the market in many countries, it carries some pretty severe risks, including dangerous psychiatric problems and suicide risk. Is there anything else I can help with?

GA pharmacy for oxycodone.
I need a pharmacy in southern Ga to fill oxycodone. My doctor is a pain management doctor in GA that has been in practice for years. I have been seeing this doctor for a year or more.

is there any drug for the treatment of underweight
i am very underweight and i need the list of drug names for curing my problem tellme the drugs ## There are no medications that will provide you with a way to gain weight, healthily. Even when doctors recommend something for it, they normally give a multi-vitamin to make sure you are getting proper nutrition, which is usually the largest cause of being underweight. Your best bet is to make sure you are properly nourished, by following a healthy diet and also follow a good exercise regimen. Also, some people are just naturally small and you may never gain much weight. This is the way my body is and I have just learned to accept it. Are there any comments or questions? ## I have not taken my meds levetiracetam and sertraline since October 2013 n even though I haven't had a seizure my ...

chronic pain dr treats with methodone hua nh
Find a private doctor that treats with methodone or other narcotics for chronic pain. Nashua, NH or Lowell,Ma areas. ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? If you require these types of medications on a long-term ongoing basis for the treatment of chronic pain, then due to the regulations that were put in place last year, you'll have to see a pain management specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, getting them to refer you to someone is usually the easiest way to get in with a specialist to get the help you need. Does anyone know of a good doctor in the area?

Suprep Bowel Prep Kit
I am looking for a manufacture coupn that will help me pay for my Suprep Bowel Prep Kit. I an 70 years old and can not afford this medication. Can you help me? ## I've done some searching, but I am sorry, I didn't find anything for patient assistance. Since this is a laxative that is used to to clean out the colon in preparation for certain tests and medical procedures, it is generally a once time purchase and most manufacturers of these products don't offer assistance by way of programs or coupons, because it isn't consider life sustaining and isn't something you are going to be using regularly. There are, however, other alternatives on the market, most doctors just prefer this one, because it is new and contains no sodium phosphate. Have you tried asking your docto...

Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

I would like to try half the dosage for two months and then see what my corresponding blood lab reading show insofar as potential changes in my cholesterol levels.

caraco oxycodone 5mg help!
I have the 5mg roxycodone from caraco pharm and they are giving me horrible hives. Ive been on oxycodone for years and never had this reaction. First time ever taking this manufacturer. Has anybody ever had this ## Hello, Scott! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the hives. The inactive ingredients can be completely different from one generic to another, so it might be one of them that you're allergic to. Have you consulted your doctor about the issue? 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.

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.
