weight gain for Lexamil
I have been taking Lexamil 20mg for 4months, I realize weight gain can be a side effect. However ive picked up 9kg in such a short space of time. I also take trepiline at night? Is this normal. Dont want to run to the doctor for a silly side effect as I am not on a medical aid yet. All my other symptoms have improved and I am not depressed anymore.

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 to taper off Temazepam completely
Please help; doctor doesn't want me as a patient anymore, reasons are ridiculous and too long to get into, but now she has put me in a jam. I was taking Clonazepam 2mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for anxiety & sleep), & Temazepam 30mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for sleep). I have been on both these drugs for 2 1/2 years & want to get the heck off them. I noticed the last couple months; neither appeared to be helping the anxiety/sleep issues I have had; so basically I just want off both. I have been Clonazepam free for 11 days now. I CANNOT believe how I feel--like I could crawl right out of my skin; anxiety ridden, non stop talking,completely wired,nerves jumping in arms & legs, more and more and on and on. Bad idea to go cold turkey, but did & now out of them. So I have ...

small round pink pill labelled phentermine
the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentamine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pill ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was p...

expired antibiotics
## We have some drops used for an ear infection for our oldest daughter: Neo/Poly/HC/1% OTIC sups 10 ML green. The last time we used them was December of 2010 and they have been kept in a cool dark place, within a capped, plastic airtight medicine container since. Now we wonder if we can use them for an ear infection or our youngest daughter? Do you think they are safe to use as directed? She is 17 years old.

My dr took my Bottle Of Pills From Me And Wrote A Prescription For Another Pain Med
I saw my Dr. yesterday and called him because I was still in pain. He told me to come back and to bring the bottle of medication with me. He took the bottle of pain pills that I had paid for and wrote me a script for a different medication. Can a Dr. actually take someone's pills away from them like that? ## If you didn't give the doctor permission to take them then no, he should not have done that. That's your money he just took and now he's essentially making you pay more money for a new script. Unless you get the new medication paid for by the doctors office then I personally see that as being unethical and would certainly be complaining if it had happened to me. Have you been able to fill your prescription yet? ## Yes I was able to fill the new script as it was for a...

tramadol and acetaminophen
My husband has artheritis and is taking tramadol twice a day (50mg.) his dr. said he would take one every 4 hrs but he doesn't, so maybe that's why it does not help the pain very much... can he also take orycodine/500ms. acetaminphen with the tramadol ## Hello, Lillie! How is your husband doing? Before trying to add other medications, on your own, he needs to try taking it as prescribed, for awhile to see if that helps his pain. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks!!!!!!But if it doesn't help, could he possibly taker the two together....

Tri Lo Sprintec
Will I definitely get my period on the last week of the Tri Lo Sprintec pills? That's the white pills in my pack. ## There is no way to say you definitely will. You should get it that week, however, there are many reasons a woman may skip a period or start late. How long have you been taking them? Do you normally start your period on time? ## I have been on Tri-Lo-Sprintec for about 9 months now and yes like many other women have been experiencing major anxiety issues, but what I want to know is, is it normal to be later or miss a period on the pill? I have started as late as a Thursday in the week but usually start on Wednesday. Is it possible? ## I've been taking Tri-Lo Sprintec now for almost a year, but this month I have not gotten my period. I have to start my new pack tomo...

anxiety and menopause
I have pretty bad anxiety with menopause. The hormones are off the wall but no night sweats or any other symptoms. I am on Zoloft and now my OBGYN put me on the Combipatch. I am on it for 2 1/2 weeks and have been doing great and then I got an anxiety attack. Does anyone know why? ## Hi Irene, I use to get panick attacks really bad. My doctor told me it can be caused by anxiety or stress. He put me on Klonopin, which is a benzodiazepine. It's helped me really well. I was also told that regular exercise can help with anxiety and stress. ## P.S. If there's no improvement or it gets worse, speak to your doctor about it.

mox p 500 mg
when to take mox p 500, before or after food? ## Mox-P contains Amoxicillin and Lactobacillus, it is an antibiotic used to treat many types of infections.

cilift panic attacks
Hi, I am on Cilift since 3 days now. I can deal with the headaches every now and then. But I find, that my panic attacks got worse. I wake up in the morning with my heart racing and the evenings are even worse. I started with half a tablet for the first 4 days. The Dr. gave me Beta blocker and a tranquilizer now. When will the panic attack start to wear off? ## Hi Antje, I'm on Klonopin for anxiety and panick attacks. I've been on this medication for years now and it helps really well. It's a benzodiazepine.

pristiq withdrawal
I am going through menopause and my doctor switched me from Prestiq to Zoloft. The Prestiq wasn't helping the anxiety I was getting from menopause so she started me on Zoloft one month before weaning off Prestiq. I decided on my own to take 3/4 pill for one week, then 1/2 pill for another week, and then 1/4 pill for the last week (I know this pill is time released and shouldn't do this but I did it once before and was only sick minimal). This time the day I completely stopped Prestiq I had stomach churning, head zaps and nausea. The weird thing is it only lasted until the afternoon and then I felt better at night. This went on for a week and then I was fine. Did anyone ever hear of only being sick during the day and why would I be so sick one time and not another? Very curious. ...
