Metronidazole lasting side effects
409 Replies RSS
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

white pill with it 446 on
6 Replies RSS
I just got this bottle of what is suspose to be Soma 350mg. It has 466 on one side of the white round pill blank one the other side.It does not act like a Soma at all. It does nothing for my muscle spasms & low back pain. All this little round white pill does is make me very sick, gives me a complete headache, and chest pains...I know this is NOT a REAL form of the medication SOMA!! I just dont understand why our doctors can & do give us PLACEBOS, like we're NOT going to notice... ## If you got it from a Pharmacy prescribed by a Doctor it would say on the bottle. In any case it might be Tramadol and it might be Iboproffin. Seems you can't post the correct number ## They are SOMA, I have them here now and they work fine. You gave 2 Pill numbers? ## I posted the correct # ...

Mallinckrodt Fentanyl Patch
48 Replies RSS
Does anyone know how it is made? Does it have the medicine woven into the fabric of the patch or is it in a pouch form? Thank you ## No, I'm sorry, due to the risks of then being abused, such as people trying to smoke the medication from a patch, they no longer publicly list the specifics of its make up. They are really only required to list it with the FDA safety filings anyway, so they can get away with doing this quite easily. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Have you gotten some manufactured by them from your pharmacy? ## If the patch has a gel filled pouch....what would the gel be there for if it wasn't impregnated with the medicine? ## I have been using Fentanyl patches for about 2 years, the 75 Mcg. I usually get the Mylan brand. Drug store was low on the Wty they had so...

harvoni side effects
23 Replies RSS
I have been taking Harvoni for 3 months now and am having nerve pain in my legs and lower back pain. Are anyone taking Harvoni having any of these same side effects as me? Please help if you are able. Thank you ## Hi Tony, From what I've researched, "lower back pain" is specifically listed as one of the more common side effects of Sofosbuvir (the second active ingredient in Harvoni); so I'd imagine that "leg pain" may be attributed to this drug as well. If you'd like a more concrete reference, "back pain" is also listed as a side effect of Sofosbuvir on Pubmed at: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25422576 That said, you may want to contact your doctor if the pain becomes too bothersome or severe. This way you and your doctor can determine if Harvoni is still r...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
162 Replies RSS
i have post sirgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg pat. ch and had side effects ans so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from peroidic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistant restless leggs. it is driving me crazy. my doctor says that is not withdrawal. is he right? i don't think so. if it is withdrawal, what can i do about it and how long will it last? i am going crazy. ## Of course it can be from the withdrawal, your doctor might be surprised if he talked to some former addicts and learned the various things they suffered, when withdrawing from their drug of choice and you don't have to be abusing a medication for such things to happen. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Fentanyl i...

norco withdrawal
4 Replies RSS
My husband's medication is missing he has been taking 6 to 8 20mg of norco at a time for 8 years for small fiber peripheral neuropathy. We don't know what happened to his pills. They are just gone. He is left with his Lyrics and Fentenal patch. What kind if withdrawals is he looking at suffering through? His legs are jumping and has hardly slept. Not to mention the pain. How long will it last? ## Hi angela, Sorry to hear about your husband's situation with losing his pills. I can't imagine how that might feel after being on them for 8 years and suddenly not knowing where they are... Have you checked all the random places they could end up (i.e. jacket pockets, laundry room, under the car seat, etc..)? At any rate, regarding opiate withdrawals...NIH.gov notates the follow...

Pill Identification, Canadian Made By Pharmascience, Orange pill.
4 Replies RSS
This pill is an orange/peach color and is round in shape. It has the P with a circle behind it engraved in one side, which is the Pharmascience logo. The other side is scored, then there's a capital L on the upper half and a 5 on the lower half. Any ideas as to what this is would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! ## @cagedtiger, Based on my research, the Canadian made Pharmascience (PMS) pill you are describing is identified as Loxapine 5 mg. Loxapine is used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia (a mental illness that causes disturbed or unusual thinking, loss of interest in life, and strong or inappropriate emotions). Loxapine is in a group of medications called conventional antipsychotics. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. You can learn more about this dr...

What to do when depakote is gone.
Post a Reply
Hi, My girlfriend suffers from bipolar, and she has been taking depakote for about 2 months now, and it has worked more than wonders, problem is is that she ran out, and the treatment center that perscribed it wont refill it because she is no longer a patient. Her bipolar symptoms are getting really bad and she needs her meds. She has an appointment with a pshyc that she has never seen before, but the appointment is not for another month and a half..... How can she get a perscription refilled before that, and if she cant, what do we do?
