round orange pill adderall with 28 and crescent moon
that pill is manufactured by actavis pharmaceuticals. it is indeed a 30 mg adderal IR. It is in our drug database, Micromedex-pill identification. Hope this helps ## My Doctor started prescribing 30Mg. Adderall for me in June ('14); as opposed to the 20's I'd been taking for about 10 years. The first prescription was a large thinner pill with an hOh on one side and was cross scored on the other, which seemed to work ok. Yesterday the pharmacy gave me (what I'm assuming after considerable research) is "Actavis 30 Mg.", round, peach colored, smaller in diameter and slightly thicker, a crescent imprint by a 28. The other side is a single score, with indents scored in the crossing position. They don't seem to be working. I was wondering if anyone else that's ...

ciprofloxacin tablets from india
Ordered from Canada pharmacy that I have used before, however these appear to have shipped from India. Tablets are 500mg, oval shape, orange and scored on one side with no imprint. Ten per blister pack. Back of blister pack shows Ciproks 500 and manufactured for Combitic Global. Are these legitimate?

naltrexone/alcohol
i have been taking naltrexone for a month now to help me quit getting drunk on white wine. My pharmacist said i shouldn`t drink any alcohol while taking this drug but would like to know if i went out on a weekend, could i drink a glass of wine or two while taking naltrexone? Would there be any severe side effects? ## Wouldn't that be defeating the purpose of why you wanted to start taking it? Not only is it risky to consume alcohol with any medication, but if you wanted to stop drinking, it really makes little sense to go right back to it. Have you consulted your doctor? Have you undergone any counseling for this issue? ## Co: Your pharmacist does not understand the way naltrexone works or what its purpose is. Naltrexone works by the principal of "pharmacological extinction"...

KeraGro Hair rip off
RIP OFF. I REGRET ORDERING THEIR PRODUCT. THEY WILL CHARGE YOU $88 IF YOU DON'T CANCEL THE "FREE" TRIAL. A SCAM BECAUSE I HAVEN'T EVEN GOTTEN THE PRODUCT & THEY WANT TO CHARGE ME $30 FOR CANCELING & CLOSING OUT THE ACCOUNT. PLUS THE STAFF IS VERYYY RUDE & OBNOXIOUS!! ## There have actually been several recent Keragro Discussion Threads that came up over the past two weeks or so, and it looks like everyone else has also had similar experiences with their cards getting excess charges and/or arguing with rude representatives. They are definitely one of those "scam" companies you ought to steer clear of if you're on the search for hair products. For all we know, the ingredients may even not be what they say they are as well; based on their current tra...

Free Suboxone
i have no money yrying to get a few free suboxone from my pramacy ## It is doubtful that your pharmacy is going to be able to give you any for free. If you don't have any coverage for prescription drugs, Reckitt Bensicker does have an assistance program for the Suboxone Sublingual Film. You can contact them for me details on how to apply for it at 888-898-4818. Is there anything else I can help with? ## this is for the person who asked can you get suboxone free,yes the company that makes suboxone has programs at each doctors office its can only have three people in the program if you qualify you can get up to 90 suboxone sublingual film (not orange tablets) free for one year i am on the program it took about three weeks for me to get my suboxone hear to help pharmacy card its good f...

Where can you find Campho-phenique Pain Relieving Antiseptic Liquid
I cannot find Campho-phenique Pain Relieving Antiseptic Liquid except on Amazon that cost way too much. I use to be able to just purchase it in the drugstore. Cannot find it in the local store or online. Do you know where it can get it at? Has it been discontinued? Why is it no longer available? Thank you. ## Walgreens Instant Antiseptic Pain Relief First Aid Liquid 1.5 fluid ounces, has the very same active ingredients as the campho phenique. 10.8% camphor and phenol 4.7%. Inactive ingredients are eucalyptus oil, and light mineral oil. The Walgreens antiseptic has two added ingredients that are very beneficial, citric acid, which is natural occurring acid that is found in large quanties in fruit and tocopherol (vitamin E). Hope this is helpful information. I personally think that the W...

How Do I Get My Xanax Refill If It Was Stolen
i was in the hospital friday and saturday when i got out and opened my droor my pills was gone what should i do ## Did you report it to the police? If not, then you probably won't have much luck getting them replaced. Just telling your pharmacy, or doctor that it happened, without any police report, or anything to back it up isn't like to merit any assistance. If it is just time for your regular refill, then it shouldn't be a problem, because you don't actually need to bottle to get the next refill from your pharmacy. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I just amost had my car stolen and they tried to get my keys and they stole my RX of alprazolam. Whats do i have to do? I have already reported to to the polce and what is my next step. ## Tell your physician yo...

Fentermina and Acxion
Just wonder what type of medication this was? ## Now I don't know what Acxion is but I do know that Fentermina is the same as Phentermine, a diet pill which reduces the appetite. Maybe Acxion is something along the same lines? Good Luck! ## I WAS TAKING ACXION (FENTERMINA FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND LOST 59 LBS IN JUST 4 MONTHS. YUP I SURE DIID FROM A SIZE 12 TO A SIZE 2.

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...

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...

Advice for fioricet and severe headaches please!
I deal with chronic headaches as well as occasional migraines, and nothing has seemed to have an effect except vicodin. I was just prescribed fioricet and took one earlier and then another an hour or so later as the dose is 1-2 and the first wasn't effective. Three hours later my headache was just as bad and I took 2 more as I thought taking them an hour apart may have made them less effective.It's been over an hour since then and still no relief, I do maybe feel slightly dizzy and out of it but it's very slight...should I just give up on fioricet and see my doctor again? I'm in college and go to a very difficult school and I'm having a very hard time keeping up with the workload and even getting out of bed and going to class. Any comments or advice would be much apprec

medicaid louisiana doctors that are suboxone licensed
I had been on Suboxone for almost 8 years . In my opinion it is a wonder drug compaired to all the opiates that the pain clinics are all too willling to prescribe .I have been out of my Suboxone for a week & a half . I feel like I am dying . I can not sleep . I have a 5 month old new baby boy. I can hardly pick him up due to the pain that I am in. I hurt all over . i have been so nauseated.

At one time I WAS PRESCRIBED 4 , 8 MG SUBS A DAY . i WOULD KILL JUST TO HAVE A QUARTER RIGHT NOW TO FEEL LIKE NORMAL AGAIN .
