lorazepam small round purple pill
My son was given a small round purple pill in hospital tonight. I was told it was 2 mg of Lorazapam. I can't find a picture of any 2 Mg Lorazapam that are small round and purple? My son is autistic and is in a catatonic -like condition due to high levels of anxiety recently. Help! I need to know if this little pill really was Lorazapam . ## Wish I could help you . maybe it depends on the dose. Mine are four grams each and they are white. Never saw pur ple. Sorry darling. I will do a bit of research for you. Hang on! ## Thank you for your reply. I've looked up Lorazapam 2mg on the web but only saw white pills at that dose. ## Hello, Margaret! How are you and your son? No, I scrolled through several pages of pill images and didn't find any Lorazepam that are purple, or even bl...

changed from metropolol to ramipril
I just was put on ramipril yesterday after taking metropolol for 3 years because of diarrhea ,seems I'm having side effects today .dizzy , fast pulse is this normal . ## Hazel your doctor just said take this instead of Metropolol? I am weaning off of the (M) and I would def. call the doctor ..if you don't feel right. but yes it is quite normal for that to happen but I would think one has to be weaned off.. are those two drugs the same in nature? you could try some black strap molasses to slow heart rate down.. Magnesium, organic apple cidar vinegar, maybe some celtic sea salt.. if you can use these ... ## metropolol is a beta blocker and ramipril is a Ace Inhibitor there both for hypertension .As the day goes on I'm starting to feel better , thank you for replying . ## Hi; Y...

methadone and garcinia cambogia
I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone? ## I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others ha...

i need a doctor to prescribe me alprazolam for my chronic anxiety
I've have for lower back surgeries in the last 12 years. I do not need opiates I have an extreme anxiety problem and I am trying to fine a Dr in Spokane Washington ## Hello, Anna! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. If you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist, a general practice physician won't be able to prescribe it for you. Thus, for anxiety treatment, you'll need to see a psychiatrist. Xanax is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Since it is a controlled substance that is frequently abused, you also just can...

Do I need an increase in Levothyroxine? I feel so distressed more often than not.
Been on Levothyroxine 3 months at 50mg. My levels showed 35...is this high? I don't feel any better and often feel worse. Are the mood swings of sudden extreme anger and crying all a symptom of Hypothyroidism? The moods are so bad. I did try antidepressants but they made no difference and often made me feel worse. Now I have good days and bad days. Do I need an increase in Levothyroxine? ## More than likely you do need an increase in dose but only a Dr via TSH test can tell you for sure as taking more without a Dr prescription can lead to very serious health issues

white oblong pill I+ (capital i and a plus sign)
I found a pill on my floor after a "party". No drugs were involved!! I can't find it online it's white oblong blank on one side and I + on the other.(capital i and a plus sign). No other markings and no scores. Please help! ## Hi Kat, Based on the description provided, the only match I found that even remotely comes close is a 200mg Ibuprofen tablet, manufactured by Perrigo. These particular tablets are oblong and white with a capitol "i" followed by a small dash "-" and the number 2 on one side and blank on the other (no score lines either). I realize this doesn't fit your description entirely, however because nothing else comes up with the type of plus symbol that yours has, it is the next closest representation to that. You mentioned that there wer...

clonazepam white pill scored
no markings psycare ## If there are no markings, there is no way to be certain of what it is, other than to state it is not a medication approved for sale and use in the US. Clonazepam is a generic for Klonopin, this is a Benzodiazepine, commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, irritability and headache. Where did you obtain these tablets? ## What is an oval shaped white pill scored down the middle with the number 93 on the left and 670 on the right side of the score.

dilaudid in Publix pharmacy
Publix pharmacy on Babcock Road in Melbourne, Florida has had Dilaudid for the past several months. They have 8mg only, no 4's ## @paw, I think the best way to know for certain if any pharmacy in particular has something in stock or not, is to actually go there in person with your script in hand. Generally if you call and ask over the phone about availability they will more than likely say that they don't have any, since the pharmacy has no real way of knowing whether your an honest patient or someone who's potentially trying to rob them. This creates a sticky situation, because nobody enjoys driving around town for hours seeing who has what and when they might have it. Even if Publix truly does carry Dilaudid on a more frequent basis, you'd still have to check in person...

green liquid gel pill number 215
Anyone tell me what this pill is. Green liquid gel with the number 215 on it. A&Z pharmaceutical inc. Thx ## I found it. Equate night time cold & flu. Thx tho. ## Hey Lex, Just out of curiosity where did you end up locating the information on this being Equate night time cold and flu? When I went to look up the medication online I noticed that Walmart has a photo of a green liquid gel cap on the packaging, but there are no imprints being depicted on that specific label. And this has me wondering whether or not you have the same formula or perhaps something different (as over-the-counter meds are also NOT required by law to have an imprint like prescriptions do). Any additional info will help! Thanks!

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....

Disappearance of 12mg Chlor-Trimeton.... again
Question !-Where can I find Chlor-Trimeton 12hr 12mg allergy pills? (near San Diego, CA) It seems that whenever a new allergy medicine comes on the market (Claritin, Zyrtec), CT disappears for a year or so. Available in Canada as Chlor-Tripolon but only for a short while as everyone in the US starts buying it on-line when CT disappears. This time, I haven't noticed any new product roll-out. Question 2- WHY does it disappear? I've been taking it regularly for over 50 years and only recently (last few years) has it been doing this disappearing act. ## I second Phils question. Chlor-Trimeton 12hr is very good for me. Why does it keep disappearing here in Michigan too! ## I just noticed Allegra became OTC(over the counter). Chlor-Trimeton always disappears when a new allergy product...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

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...

Help ID half a pill
Hello. I found half a pill in my husbands pants while doing laundry. It's a off white/ light yellow pill. One side looks like it has a V or maybe a W (only have half the pill) the other side looks like a 6 or a 9. I do know that he was 'feeling good on only half of it' (from a text I saw on his phone) I asked him about this and he just shrugged me off and got mad. I would really like to know what I am up against and info would be helpful! I do have two pictures of it. ## @IDme, Might you be referring to a V 36 01 generic Vicodin tablet, that is light yellow in color? These oblong pills have a score line down the center for dividing the tablet in half, and from what I can tell, if you held the half containing a "V", you'd also have the 3 or 6 on the opposite half....

1000 mg percocet
Want to know what a 1000 mg percocets l ook like ## They don't make one like that. ## @boo bear, BL is right, you're not going to find any Percocets with that type of dosage. It is only available in the following dosage forms: 2.5/325, 5/325, 7.5/325, and 10/325 respectively. The amount of acetaminophen used to be 500mg and 600mg in the 7.5 and 10mg tablets, but due to recent reports regarding acetaminophen and increased liver toxicity, the amount as of Jan 2014 is now capped off at 325mgs. Could you possibly be thinking of another medication altogether?

Alternative Forms of Potassium Citrate
My dog is 16 years old and had bladder stones when he was about 4 years old. I used the costly meds listed above but eventually found 500 gm of pure potassium citrate selling for a cheaper rate elsewhere. I add the salt to my dogs food three times per day. His urine is most acidic in the morning so I give him more at night than at the morning and afternoon meals. But how much? I base the dose on monitoring his urine PH using German PH strips with the target PH being 6.75 in the morning. During the day his urine PH may go up to 8. I have used this approach for the past 12 years and there have been no recurrent stones. The strips are pH-FIX Indicator Stix, 4.5-10 PH, 100/PK. You can cut each strip in three. One approach before switching over is to use the strips throughout the day and see...

avinza to suboxone?
I've been taking 90mg Avinza twice daily for about 11 years, with the addition of percoset 5mg 2-4x a day over the last two years. I still couldn't sleepplus had major anxiety issues, and after trying Ambien (awful!), Klonopin, Xanax & other meds that made me brain dead the next day, I finally began using cannabis with great success. It even relieved my pain by making me stop focusing on it. Then I scored a 21 on a drug panel at pain mgmnt and now they are tapering me off morphine & cold turkey on percocet. I've taken it for a decade and I'm terrified because I know my body is addicted. I don't drink, I barely smoked cannabis but will continue to and I've never abused my meds, but I know it will be a hard transition. Do I need to find a doctor to write fo...
