Alevian Duo--would like more information
Alevian duo (Bromuro de Pinaverio/dimeticona) was recently prescribed for me. It seems to be amazingly effective, but I would like to know more about the medicine. It is distributed by NYCOMED, made in Mexico for Gelcaps Exportadora de Mexico, S.Å. de C.V. ## I have a serious problem with my bowel movements, the Dr told me my colon are not moving properly, and I have an infection, also diverticulitis. He prescribed Mesalazina, now I am considering if Alevianduo would be a good medication for me, my bowels are not forming, just watery, and a lot of gas problem. I would like to hear from you if this med. could go together

Suboxone withdrawal after taper question.
I've been on suboxone 7 years. Started at 24 mgs and recently tapered down to .25 mgs. I planned on skipping one day, then two, then three and so on. HOWEVER....I am on day four and what do you know? Hardly any symptoms. And no terrible symptoms at all. I've been restless a little, pupils a little big. WTH is going on? I've read all these terrible stories about kicking sub, I've been terrified to even try...and here I sit just fine on day four?! Is the worst to come? Should I keep holding my breath? Please any advice is appreciated ## Hi, The first time I tapered off subs I was pleasantly surprised. I tapered slowly from 12mg to .5mg. The sub dr. I had at time was behind me on this. Started getting high about year later and started subs on my own and tapered kind of fast...

Prolia & Hair Loss
I've just recently had my second Prolia shot. So far so good...a little back pain. I continually have stress fractures on my feet and have also taken fosamax. My current problem is hair loss & I wondered if anyone else was having that problem? ## Hello, Gracie! How are you? No, this isn't listed from what I can find, but I'll check a couple more sources to be sure and post back. Are you on any other medications? How old are you? ## I'm 57. On no other meds except evista and a pill for reflux. A friend sent me a website that stated that there was a study with some hair loss ## Yes, after my second shot of Prolea, I had two UTIs, fatigue, huge bumps under the skin on my face and all over my scalp, an array of unexplained symptoms like peripheral neuropathy (not diabeti...

I have caught cvs and other pharmacies lying about not having oxycodone is stock, shortage 2012
Well today I officially caught a cvs here in Ga lie to me. A friend of mine filled his Meds yesterday. I go in, having a history with cvs, a recent one, and am immediately lied to. The pharmacist comes over and tells me they haven't had them in stock for months, without looking at his book or computer. At this point I stated an employee I know the name of told me shipment came in Thursday. He lied again. I then told him friend had filled yesterday morning. He said it was impossible. I then said I saw the bottle with my own eyes, it had their address on it, and even told him what brand they had since my friend just filled his there. Pharmacist lied to me yet again. I then asked him why he wad lying to me and that I am tired of being treated like a criminal because I am 30 with a hand...

glutaphos dosage
glutaphos daily dosage ## Glutaphos is a supplement, not a medication, is claimed to help with brain function and cognitive abilities. It contains: 325mg GLUTAMIC Acid, 200mg DICALCIUM Phosphate, 5mg THIAMINE hydrochloride and 10mcg VITAMIN B12. The regular dosage is listed as 1 tablet daily, or 2 after strenuous mental activity. Do you have any other questions? ## what are the contraindications if any? ## Sidz, since it is a supplement, as I said, rather than a mediation, that information isn't studied for it, as it is for medications. So, we have no way of knowing if there are any contraindications. Very sorry, I wish I could help you! Does anyone have more information on this? ## what is the best time to take such drug?? ## I used to take glutaphos before and its really effective...

Find A Doctor In My Area Indianapolis Xanax And Pain Pills
I need a agood dr. that is persistant. One that will help me control my pain, and help control my very high anxiety... Please Help!!!!!! ## Hi Mike, Personally, I think if you suffer from any sort of anxiety/depression and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Xanax), usually your best bet is to see a psychiatrist, rather than a regular medical doctor. Reason being, is that they are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems and can also help you treat the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression, as opposed to covering up the feelings and emotions with medication. In regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or z...

This wasn't what I wanted my life to be, and I can not let it end this way.. please please please help me.

blue diazepam 10 mg 2684 v
hi, I was perscribed a pill at the vets office for my dog they say 2684 v and i was told its valium and they look exactly like.the ones the doctor perscribed for me are they?.........tim ## Hi Tim, Just to confirm what your vet said, a round blue pill marked with a "V" on one side and "2684" on the other side (sitting above a score line), reportedly contains 10mgs of Diazepam - otherwise known as Valium. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Qualitest; and this pill also carries a National Drug Code of 00603-3215. Did the vet give you proper dosing instructions for your dog? I don't know how animals react to these kinds of meds in comparison to humans, so I find it odd that they would prescribe your dog the same exact pills designed for human consumption. #...

pink oval pill with imprint 287
I found a pink capsule shaped pill. Its pretty big and its its marked 287 on one side and nothing on the other please fill me in what this is ## @Tyson, The only relevant matches I'm finding are oval pink colored pills, imprinted with "2875" or "2876". There's no other numbers on the backside of each pill, but there is a faint imprint of a heart symbol. These particular pills are identified as an antihypertensive medication known as Avalide; containing hydrochlorothiazide + irbesartan. So I have to ask if there's any chance that the marking may have been misinterpreted due to possible fading/degradation of the pill itself from storage conditions or otherwise? Please post back if you have additional details regarding this and I'll see if I can dig any deep...

Oxycodone Shortage In Florida 2012
Can a pharmacist just be quite and fill the script the doctor ordered for his patient.They lie to us and then fill freds script for the same thing and smile while they do it.We are tax paying citizens in pain and the DEA has made a real mess of everything. Real patients cant even get their meds. ## The whole country seems to be in a sort of bind in so far as normal patients being depicted as addicts and many who are unable to get their scripts filled no matter who they are or what they do. I think petitions such as this one do significantly help; but the real question is, are they even going to do something about these complaints even with all the petitions floating around the net? We should hope so, but knowing our gove...

Side Effect on Xarelto about Weight Gain
I have been on Xarelto for about a month and my weight went up 25 to 30 lbs. Before I was on Xarelto I was taking Warfin and I was gaining any extra weight. I haven't been prescripted nor taken any other medications then the medications that has prescripted to me. I would like to know is there anyone else having this problem. ## Hi Tammy, Even though weight gain is not actually listed as being a possible side effect, I've actually been seeing quite a few posts from other individuals tracing it back to Xarelto as well. Unfortunately I find that in these types of cases, it seems like the only other options are to make more drastic changes to your diet; exercise harder/longer; or just stop taking what's triggering it to begin with. If you don't want to go that route, you ca...

How fast
How fast will the lizness begin to work? I have to go to work and don't want to be running up and down statues all day. ## Hi Gil, While some patients report having bowel movements on the first day from taking Linzess (Linaclotide), others mention that it took up to a few weeks before it really kicked into gear for them. With that said, the only real way to see if it will work for you is by actually trying it and committing yourself to a full course of treatment. I guess you're supposed to take it 30 minutes before eating or drinking in the morning, but I don't know if that has an impact on it's overall effectiveness throughout the rest of the day. The patient prescribing information notes that symptoms of diarrhea often begin within the first 2 weeks of treatment. So I...

sticker on back of my prescription paper
greetings all, I have a rx for 1 to 3 tab tid for endocet 10/325. my question is what does it mean when there is a sticker on the back of the rx with a number 1, next to it is a number reading #1, 6202....#2, 2189...#3, 311... under the hand written digits is pre printed wording reads; PLAN: Pt. being seen on a monthly basis for pain management. can anyone tell me why those four and one three digit numbers are on the reverse side of my post dated script???? ## @Swtp, I could very well wrong in assuming this, but it sounds to me like these are simple codes pharmacies use in order to help keep things organized within their own database of prescriptions. With thousands of medications on file, it would probably be a nightmare if you didn't have some sort of way to keep track of them all...
