tendons curling up and antibiotics
I have been prescribed antibiotics frequently by doctors. I frequently have infections related to bacterial infections and have noticed something strange slowly occurring. It started in my right leg then the left knee. I can't straighten either leg. Tingling and then it felt like a ball under my skin. My hands are showing hard clumps. Two PCPs have told me it is my tendons. Pain numbness the curling up of tendons are the symptoms. Is this from the heavy use of antibiotics? ## Hello, Connie! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Usually, what some antibiotics cause as a side effect are tendon ruptures. What did your doctors say have caused your issue? What treatment options have they offered?

blue diet pills
Looking for a dark blue capsule with MLW written on it. You take this diet pill only once a day. ## Hi Nancy, I think I may have found a possible match to your description. From what I could gather, a blue "softgel" marked with MLW is identified as a Maxiloss Slimming pill; made in China. The product label states that they are Herbal Diet Pills containing extracts from the following herbs: XianXian Cao Jobstears Artemisia Dracunculus Psyllium Husk Bamboo Shoot Lotus Leaf. The description even lists a Model Number (KZ-MZT012) that may be helpful for verifying additional product information. Lastly, I also wanted to add that the recommended dosing guidelines for this pill are shown as, 1 capsule (taken once daily) 30 minutes before or after breakfast. Hope this info helps to answe...

saboxone and one 30 Mg morphine
I am on saboxone. I tooke 60 Mg morphine one day can I take saboxone again right away if only little morphine ## Hello, Jilly! How are you? It could be risky to take them so close together. Have you consulted your doctor? It's just not a good idea to take other opiates, when you are on the Suboxone. 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.

My daughter took 20 mg of Fetzima for only 2 days. She had a reaction to it, feeling like things around her was not real, and questioning her existence. She only has depression never anything like this. We stopped the medicine and watched her through the night. Now 2 days later she is still having the same effects of this medicine. I have her drinking a lot of water and juice to try and get it out of her system. When will this be completely flushed from her.

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

small round light green pill v on one side 48 not immrdiate release????11 other
I heard is not immediate release it's regulat release,what's the difference? ## Hello, Ria! How are you? An immediate or instant release medication is formulated in such a way that it starts to be absorbed into your blood stream to do its work as soon as you swallow it. Whereas a regular release must be digested and will usually take about 15 to 20 minutes to start working. 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?

black and red capsule opiate
Hello I am trying to find a pain killer I took in the 80's for pain from severe burns. It was Black and Red. It was a capsule. It was an Opiate. It worked really well and did not make me sick!!! That's what this is all about!!! I hurt my back and I have been prescribed Morphine, Hydracodone, "The Patch", etc. I am suffering from the side effects of these meds and I was telling my Dr., who is really young, and doesn't know this med. So I don't remember this drugs name as I was so young and I can't track it as the Pharmacy and hospital I got it from are all closed down. Please help!!! ## Hello, Jallen2! How are you? I'm sorry, but just knowing the colors and that it was a capsule isn't enough to point to what it might have been. It might even no longer ...

metoprolol 50 mg twice daily along with lisinopril 20 mg twice daily. what is best way to take these doseage in hours?
How many hours apart do I separate these meds. and what is the best and less confusing way to take these pills. Together or Separated? ## There is no need to separate them, as a matter of fact, most doctors will tell you not to, in order to try to help you remember to take them all and not miss any doses. They can be taken together. They may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

New to adderall seeking advice
Hey everyone, I started 10 mg 2-3 times daily of the generic blue pill which is IR for ADD --no hyperactivity. I tried Ritalin a few weeks ago and HATED it. Mood swings immediately while it was still in my system, and I had this odd strung out feeling. No good. This is my third day on adderall and I can tell that the concentration and focus is there. The first day I took two 10mg at the same time and felt the motivation kick that got me going, which is one of the things I was hoping to see as a benefit becuase another of my serious problems i have struggled with is procrastination. However, because I am only on a trial bottle I don't want to run out too soon until my next script fill, so I just took one this morning, and I am analyzing to see exactly what the effects are. What I have n

methadone and roxicodone for chronic pain
From 2009 thru 2012 I was prescribed methadone and roxicodone for chronic back pain. Which was very effective. The clinic closed down and I've found it difficult to find a doctor who will prescribe methadone. My current doc gives me five 30mg roxicodone a day but I don't get the pain relief I had when taking methadone and the occasional roxicodone for breakthrough pain. Can anyone reccomend a pain doctor in the Nashville area that prescribes methadone and roxicodone for pain control? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. However, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. The only thing you can do is see a doctor and discuss your treatment options with them. Many won't want to pre...

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, ...

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 Eryko 250 Used For
I got the tablets for an infection and im pregnant. Will it have any effects. ## Eryko contains the active ingredient Erythromycin, it is an antibiotic that is used to treat various types of infections. And no, in the U.S. the FDA has found it to cause Hepatoxicity (liver damage) in pregnant women. While it is reversible, when the medication is discontinued, it can endanger both the mother and baby, so they have not approved it for use during pregnancy. I suggest you contact your doctor about why they prescribed this one and ask them about using an alternative medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am 39 weeks pregnant and a hospital doctor gave me Anaerobyl 200 and Eryko 250 to use for a urinal/vaginal tract infection. Will it harm my baby? I am having side effects. C...

michigan pain management
I suffer from back and neck pain from 2 car accidents. I live in Michigan. I have always just dealt with the pain but as I get older the pain gets worse! I have been a labor worker for 20 yrs and now I work in an office with great insurance and benefits. I have an referral appointment at a pain management facility. Nothing over the counter works for me and have tried narcos, hydrocodone, oxcicodone, roxicodone is all that worked for me. Any advice on how to get one if these prescribed? ## Hello, Mickey! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. Your really just need to see your PM specialist and be honest with them about your pain levels. You'll also need to cooperate with any tests and such that they want done. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be...
