Acalka effectivity & safety
8 Replies RSS
what is the success rate of dissolving or passing out kidney stones with acalka? will this not have adverse effect if person has osteoporosis? ## This contains the active ingredient Potassium Citrate. In a study of 500 patients, it was shown to reduce their frequency of kidney stones from around 2 a year to half, which is a really good effectiveness ratio. You can learn more on it here: And as to its effect on Osteoporosis, since this is mineral that it vital to our bones, it is actually beneficial to that condition. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Does Acalka have the same effect on Gall Stones? Does it also dissolve Gall Stones? Or does it just prevent its formation? ## is it acalka make me fat if im going ta take this coz i got a problem in my kidney what is the cause o...

can you still get oc 80 mg

green oval 80 on one side ex on other ## The pills with the marking of EX 80 were actually a time released formulation of Oxycodone from Mexico and they have been discontinued and were illegal to have in the U.S. In the U.S. the only product that is now available is the new Oxycontin OP, the reformulation from Purdue. Are there any questions or comments? ## where can i get oc 80s in minnesota ## I live in Southeast Georgia and recently in last 2 years it has gotten harder and harder to find a Dr. in Georgia that prescribes oxycodone 30s or 15s and Dilaudid 4s & 8s. Does anybody know of a Dr. in Georgia that will prescribe me either oxycodone or Dilaudid at current date. I am extremely grateful for any help and advice. Thanks

40 mg oxycontin vs ms contin 30mg.
28 Replies RSS
I have been taking 40mg oxycontin 3x a day. My insurance won't cover it any more. My Doc prescribed ms contin 30mg 2 x a day. will it work? ## Oxycontin contains the active ingredient Oxycodone. It is stronger than the MS Contin which contains the active ingredent Morphine. Both are narcotic pain relievers. That said, your doctor has actually prescribed you a lower dose, to be taken less frequently than what you were taking of the Oxycontin. However, the only way to see if it will help you is for you to try it. Some medications are effective for certain people, some are not. If this dosage does not handle your pain, make sure to contact your doctor right away and let them know. They may need to prescribe one that is slightly higher or to be taken more frequently. You may still exper...

Augmentin: does augmentin expire?
2 Replies RSS
I have an entire bottle of augmentin pills, which were orginally going to be used for a slow antibiotic treatment over a month. My doctor told me not to do it in the end, but left me with a full bottle. Do the pills expire? ## Is it an original factory sealed bottle, or a bottle that was filled and dispensed by your pharmacy? In the original factory sealed container, they are usually good for about 3 years, since that keeps them from being exposed to the elements. Learn more Augmentin details here. If they're in a bottle from a pharmacy, which means they've been removed from the original container, then they expire a year from the date they were dispensed to you. Breaking the seal on the original container exposes them to heat, light and etc. which starts the degradation process...

Fiorinal with Codeine #3
19 Replies RSS
I've been taking 4 capsules per day for migranes and pain control. I've been taking this drug for 30 years and it seems like the only thing that works yet allows me to be productive. Since the unavailability issues about a year ago, it seems like they are now not as effective. It feels like they don't have the same amount of active ingredient. I agree that Watson was the best generic I tried. Does anybody know which manufacturer may be better to get from? I find I've been needing more like 6 per day and still am not getting the same relief. Any ideas?? ## Hello, Diana! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. At this point, it might be better to just try a different medication. So far, no one who's posted has had good results from any of t...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
583 Replies RSS
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

Mi Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone For Pain
10 Replies RSS
My mother was prescribed methadone for her Neuropathy while living in Florida. Since then she has moved back to Michigan by necessity. She left her job to move to Georgia with her husband who was a military vet. He got OxyContin from the V.A. Hospital in Atlanta for his back issues. With her having no insurance he used to share with her. Now he's dead and we moved her back here to Michigan. She still has no insurance except Medicare A&B. she's almost out of meds and the pain she will experience is excruciating. The docs she has seen here all want her to jump thru hoops to make sure she's not a drug addict. How can we get her the meds she needs without spending her ssi check all on doctors who give her no help? ## @Anthony, Sorry to hear about your mom's situation. If...
