percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...

xanax white bar 2 mg fancy R 039 both sides scored taste just like xanax
I have a few white 2mg bars scored on both sides and one side has a fancy R and then 039 on one side and is just scored with nothing written on the other side. The taste is exactly like any other Xanax I just can't find anything about the white bars have a fancy R 039, only yellow. but I took 1 and then another half and felt just like I do with any other bar. Any info appreciated ## People like you scare me. Perhaps you act fine on 3 or 4 mg at a time but be advised it is a Felony to have a Xanax w/ out a prescription! ## first off Im a police officer and no its not a felony to have damn xanax w/ out a prescription. look at the laws first before u make stupid comment. ## I've had the white xanax with the fancy R 039. Some work fine some don't work at all. Is seems that the o...

Early prescription refill
I know this is not right but not many things are any more ....does any one know of any pharmacies in Mo that will fill prescriptions early. It is dated for yesterday but the do not refill date is next week ## I don't know of any pharmacies personally, but I can provide you with a link that locates pharmacies in your general area. I would just suggest calling up a number of them to see who may be able to fill it early. I'm sure some pharmacies have loop holes that allow them to look past this sort of thing. I guess it really depends on who's working there and what kind of person they are at the time you call them. In any case, listed below is a pharmacy-locator site, that uses your zip code to find nearby pharmacies within a given mile range: pharmacylocator.unarxcard.com I h...

baclofen cream
I am currently using a cream prescribed by my foot doctor, Ketamine10% Flurbiprofen10% Baclofen4% Verapamil7% Tetracaine2%. I had to have the lab adjust the formular with my doctors approval, to it current percentage as the original formular was useless. It works a bit better, but I feel it could use some more tweeking. Any suggestions? Also I recently injured my knee and have been using it on that as well. I've read the comments above and plan to discuss some of these options when I see the knee guy in a couple of weeks :( Thank you ## Hello, Jeff! How are you? As a topical cream, this really isn't going to alleviate intense pain. There's only so much it will do, since you don't really absorb much of the medications, at all. And no, I've no suggestions for tweaking,...

af plus enhanced weight loss
I heard about this product on the radio for a free trial, so before I called I decided to look into it a little more. I have found some complaints about them charging almost $80 to a lot of people after thet got the free trial they canceled the "membership" yoyu are automaticly added to is this normal? Can you get your money back if this happens? And is it safe to give them all my info? ## Auto-enrollment and automatic billing are tactics used by many companies, purely as a way to make money off of consumers. Statistics prove that most people won't make the effort to cancel, before being billed and a fairly large percentage that wanted to cancel will not return the auto-shipped product and pursue a refund. As consumers, most of us are just lazy. Additionally, this product ha...

Antidepressant Dose timing
Are antidepressants need to be taken at same time daily? I am prescribed the Flupentixol and mellitracen tablet and desvenlafaxine ER in evening. Doctor told to take medicines around 7 to 8 pm. I am taking it at 10 or 11 pm. I am suffering from insomnia. Is it due to the wrong timing that I follow? ## Can you take these in am instead? These meds act differently on everyone. Some antidepressants make you have energy for during day an vice versa. I do know when I was on Zoloft, I was told to take it same timeevery day. I diverted fr that couple times an felt horrible. Talk to your Dr an see if you can take in am. Hope this helps a little.

antidepressant closest to Tramadol in the brain.
I am a recovering Tramadol addict of 8 yrs. Last 3 I was taking 20-25 a day. Off internet or by phone. Had a source prob in India. Would use pre-loadable credit card called PayPower. Mailed in 2-3 days via USPS. Well in May 2014 I got sick with Adnovirus fr son an somehow that messed with Tramadol. Started having palpitations an skipped heart beat. Very scary. Went to ER. Very humiliating to say you are an addict but my own fault. See Tramadol is VERY addictive. For SOME!! It has antidepressant/anti-anxiety properties in it also. Thats why I liked it so. I was first prescribed it by orthopedic dr for tibial stress fracture. Also fibromyalgia an herniated disc in lumbar. Also had lost a child an it seemed to make me happier. Going back to ER. Dr did tons of bloodwork even on heart. Could...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

can you drink alcohol while taking sulfamethoxazole trimethoprim
I have been on this medication since tuesday (and have not experienced any side effects) when I thought my wound was infected, but it was not. My doctor gave me about 25 pills to take as a precaution to avoid it getting infected in the future. If I do not take the pills for 36 hours, will I be able to drink alcohol without having side effects? Also, what is the likelihood of my wound getting infected if I do not take the antibiotic for over 48 hours?
