Quantity Changed. After 7 years
Since 1-2007 I have been taken 10mg lortab--180 monthly. Quantity received this month were 10mg lortab--140 monthly. Very upset! My health has not improved. Actually there are times where pain meds do not do the job. Mostly when it rains or when it's cold outside. My doctor is aware of this. I finally informed her. This has been months ago, so thinking this has nothing to do with lower quantity. Having been afraid to complain about periodical pain increases. Figure doctor would take me off meds. I have tried to adjust to dose, but this is just stressing me out. Which causes my fibromyalgia to flair worse, More pain.... My tests have always been fine. No illegal or non-written drugs in system. Do not know what to do, or where I stand.???

Sprintec Skipping Period
I want to skip my period. Can I skip the white pills on sprintec and start a new pack? ## Yes, unless your doctor has told you not to do so, it is perfectly safe to do this, occasionally. Many women use oral contraceptives to skip having their menstrual cycle on special occasions, or other times when it would just be inconvenient. There are even some on the market now that allow you to only have 3 or 4 menstrual cycles a year. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I don't really think you should do that until talking to a doctor, just to be sure.... My doctor is having me skip the placebo pills for two months then taking it the third month so that I'll have a period every three months. You don't want to mess anything up, so talk to a doctor first. ## I have just star...

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...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Multaq issues
I have been taking Multaq for almost 5 months. Yes it helps, maybe to much, I am exhausted it keeps me so low and irregular, I don't have the energy to do anything much. I work full time but I can't wait to drag myself home and crash. I have gained almost 23 pounds since and am very depressed. I am not sure what caused which first. I have exhausted all meds. I was on Tikosyn for 7 years, but my income exceeded the limit for the patient assist program, and 600.00 a month is a bit to much for me. I am on the medication program for Multaq, the income level is set higher so I qualify. But I don't like how it makes me feel, I was hoping someone else had some info. as to how it reacted for them. Thanks ## Multaq contains the active ingredient Dronedarone, it is mainly used to trea...

what kind of pill has a V a C and an inverted V on it.
I came across a capsule that is white and green. In thin letters there's a "V" and a little lover a "C" and lower than that and lined up with the "V" is what appears to be an inverted "V" that could be an "A". I actually came with some mosaic materials I ordered. ## Never mind. It turned out to be a gift. When you open the pill called a "Happy Pill" there's a tiny blank note inside wrapped in a delicate copper wire. Very cute, but who would have thought that was what was in there. If you hold it vertically, the Vs and C make a smiley face. That's a relief.

I used to take Propan with Iron (Capsule) multivitamins since 1997 in the Philippines the time I was so thin so I take 1 capsule in each day after breakfast until I finished 30 capsule and i gained weight that time.

Oxycodone hcl makes me sick.
What drug should I try because the oxycodone is making me sick? ## Hi Cartel, Sorry to hear about your Oxycodone intolerance. There are a variety of pain medications on the market that you could ask your doctor about trying instead of Oxycodone. However it's important to understand that there's really no way of knowing ahead of time how something else might end up affecting you as well, until you give it a shot and see how you like it. Depending on what your doctor recommends, some other options may include medications like Hydrocodone/Apap, Morphine sulfate, or Hydromorphone. Do you think the sick feeling could be because of a problem with the dosage being too high or perhaps just a side effect of the drug itself?

Can Norco EQ 5/325 mg and Motrin EQ 800mg be taken at the same time or do I need to space them apart?
I just had eye surgery and was given Norco (4x a day) and Motrin (3x a day) to take for pain, can I take them at the same time or do I need to space them out? ## Hi Chris, Hope you're recovering well from the surgery. From what I could gather, there are no drug interactions listed between Norco (acetaminophen + hydrocodone) and Motrin (ibuprofen). So I don't see why it wouldn't be ok to take them both together if that's what you need to do in order to achieve adequate pain relief. Also as long as it's the same doctor who prescribed both, I think that he/she would've informed you up front of any possible risks involved with doing so if there really were serious consequences to be had. I hope this helps!

Hi. I've been down this road almost 30yr. With all this,anxiety, panic attacks.side effect,different meds, nothing worked. Took forever and it turned my life upside down.not happy then. Been on cymbalta 10 years, its ran its course and making me jittery and nervous and shaky and confusion and focus are bad.tried before going off and was a disaster. Now it seems better, only been three days. Taking 30mg for 14 days then switch to probably effexor xr. Unless Dr. Has better idea. I also take ativan half milligram in am and pm. I sleep better and have no panic attacks at nite with it. Wellbutrin 100. For the calming effect. Not easy when you must change things around again.

Xanax vs. Buspar
Yes-what is the major difference between these 2 meds? I have taken xanax for several years. I'm thinking abt. changing to Buspar. Can you switch meds like these without tapering off the xanax. Does Buspar help w/ Panic attacks? ## buspar is for depression and xanax is for anxiety. ## buspar is for depression and xanax is for anxiety. I was wrong buspar is also used for anxiety but it not a Federal drug and it does have addition potutial like xanax ## Hi, I wanted to address the panic attacks you are experiencing. Often panic attacks and anxiety are the body's natural reaction to telling us something has gone wrong that needs to be addressed. It is usually some form of trauma that has happened in our life that creates the panic attacks and anxiety. Medication numbs the symptoms ...

blue oval pill 100 on one side and 100 on the other side
it is supposed tho be viagra,it had one hundred on both sides ## @boss1488, Based on my research, a blue "diamond shaped" (NOT oval) pill with 100 on both sides, is said to be identified as a generic form of foreign Viagra (sildenafil); used to treat ED. Someone in another thread had also mentioned that this particular tablet was being sold under the brand name Kamagra, and is reported to have been manufactured & shipped out of India. Do you know if this was ordered online by chance?

ZS 906
cetirizine hydrochloride? This is a round fairly small pill with ZS on one side and 906 on the other. I received them as generic zyrtec but I can't find it on the internet. Is it one possible generic pill for zyrtec? It doesn't seem like it's working for my allergies so I figured I should check it out. usually the generics are white oblong pills. I got them from walgreens. ## I received same pills and no they don't work the same as zertec. I can't find anything on it either. ## Its actually SZ 906 which is Cetirizine which is used for an allergy pill. But if that doesn't help you can take that pill (Cetirizine) and Singulare.

Nap 50 S Steroids
i am buying nap 50 anabolic steroids and i want to be able to identfy them as ive never seen them before ?? ## Hi keerz, The research I've done leads me to believe that Nap 50 s comes in the form of a green capsule. However, the size, shape, color, and imprint of any medication or supplement can differ depending on the manufacturer. If you know the manufacturer and are able to provide that information I can do some more research for you. I hope this helps! ## Does any one know about a square purple pill S/P on one side and 20 on the other. Was told it's clenbuterol just wanted to make sure what my buddy has is legit.
