THIS INFO WOULD REALLY HELP FOR MY CRONIC BACK PAIN I HAVE BEEN SUFERING FROM FOR 15 YEARS. ## Hello, James! How are you? There is no one best manufacturer that can be named. What doesn't work for you may work great for someone else and vice-versa. There can be slight fluctuations from one generic to another, but mostly it depends on you and your body. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You may also need a dosage adjustment, you could have just grown tolerant to ...

i need a doctor who will give me methdone 10mg in raleigh nc
My son has chronic pain in his Rt.shoulder. Methodone 10mg. three x a day was percribed for him. His doctor Rudolph J. Myers retired, and now he's in need to find an another Physician who will continue to percribed the same medication for him. He lives in Raleigh N.C. ## Hello, Mike! How are you and your son? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if such a medication is required on a long-term ongoing basis for the management of chronic pain, he'll need to see a pain management specialist. A PCP can no longer prescribe like that. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. However, there is no listing of doctors that I can refer to f...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Medication In Louisiana
I need to find a Dr. To write a Rx. For hydrocodin for chronic back pain, where can I find one in Southern Louisiana? ## Well, first of all, there is no listing to refer to that tells you what doctors in any given location will prescribe any given medication. And the next issues is that you really aren't going to be able to see a new doctor and ask for a specific medication, because they are taught to see that as drug seeking behavior. Learn more Vicodin details here. Your best bet, if you need long-term pain management, is to see a pain management specialist and set up an appointment to get in the door, without asking is they will prescribe anything. Then make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records, so the documented medical problems and notes from your prior doctor...

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.

white capsule shaped pill with SX CF1 (possibly SX CFL) on one side
this pill may possibly be Ciprofloxina from my home in Mexico,but I am not sure ## Helllo, Carrol! How are you? The word of relevance here is Mexico, they don't regulate their medications like the U.S. or Canada, so there is no databases of the markings to refer to and see what something contains. However, I'll do some searching and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this?
