want child
i have iregular period so my doctor adviseme to start mala n and i started but nw i want to stop beccause of pain can i stop mala n? But i want child.. i am using mala n from last 16 days ## Hi Usha! If u r having problems with your medication, I would definitely talk 2 your Dr. One thing I can suggest that may help u get pregnant, is, the ovulation predictor. U can buy it almost anywhere.(cvs and other pharmacys) it's right where the pregnancy tests are, sold OTC, so, u don't need a prescription. I had problems conceiving and I used it. It helped me, next month, I was pregnant. U need 2 wait until u get your period and follow the directions on the box. It tells u when u r ovulating, so, u will know when the best tint. 2 conceive is. Good Luck! Let us know how u make out. ## Hel...

evion 600 use
Can I use this to remove scars on leg ## Hi Tanaeee! U know what I heard was suppose 2 b really good 4 scars is Madermax.(not sure on the spelling) ## Hello, Tanaeee! How are you? This is just a vitamin E supplement, so while it is good for your skin and hair, it won't do anything to help with scars that have already formed. Sometimes, just moisturizing well to keep the skin more supple can help minimize them.

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
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.

How hard will it be to get a suboxen program that I can work with while workin on the road regularly
I dropped out of my first attempt at a suboxen program ( cause I really would like to do the "program" and not on my own) because they gave very impractical terms for my participation. They expected me to attend 5 AA meetings weekly and show proof at every visit... That being said I work the road and am gone 6-7 months a year and just have no clue and no time in evenings after 12 hour days (schedules dont jell with these centers) to hit these programs.. I would have loved to use the website but this doctor was very odd in his requirements.. So that being said... is there any alternatives? And do most doctors refuse a second chance for folks who reoffend and do not follow docs programs criteria after one visit? Is there a national data base that will tell other docs that I...

Cymbalta and zoloft
I currently take 250 mg of zoloft and my pdoc has me on lactimal 100mg. The lactimal doesnt seem to work anymore and i tried everything else. I have bipolar with major depression and schizo affective disorder ,adhd,and ocd. i take also haldol 2mg twice a day,klonopin 2mg a day and vyvanse 70mg a day. i have been thinking about trying cymbalta or latuda. any suggestions. i just dont want to be depressed any more . i am 40 years old and dealt with this the whole time. ## Hello, Angel! How are you feeling? I am sorry that you're suffering depression, that's very tough to deal with. The Latuda is an atypical antipsychotic, so it is very similar to the Haldol that you already take. The Cymbalta is an SNRI antidepressant, so it's related to the Zoloft, though not the same. Were th...

side effect of clonazepam
i am taking feliz s plus 5 half a tablet in the morning daily for two years how do i stop it and what are the side effects i take half tablet of cpzam 0.25mg at night is there any harm mustafa ## Hi Mustafa, I've been on clonazapan and just went off of it, I never had any withdrawls from it and seemed to be fine. If you don't feel this is an option or have other health concerns, go to your dose every other night for one week, then try every three days, see how you do. It's called winging yourself. It's the safest way and exactly how a doctor would do it. Good luck. ## Hello, Mustafa! How are you? There is one major precaution that hasn't been mentioned that must be pointed out here… A sudden withdrawal from long-term use of benzodiazepines, such as this, create...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...
