how long will side effects last after 4 days
I have been taking Chantix for 4 days in a row and I feel horrible!!! how soon will this be out of my system?? ## Hello, Jodi! How are you doing? If you only took it for 4 days, it shouldn't take long for the side effects to wear off, a few days at most. What types of side effects did you experience? The most common ones are nausea, insomnia and abnormal dreams.

Seven Kidney Tumors Removed
Hi Cancer Patients. My right kidney was removed about a year ago with stage 3 kidney cancer. A year later it returned with 7 tumors in my colon, small intestines, liver and abdomen - stage 4 kidney cancer. I was turned down for an operation at a big local hospital. They wanted me on Sutrent as a substitute. A second opinion at City of Hope Cancer Hospital, Duarte, CA had a wonderful surgeon and three other specialist surgeons remove all 7 tumors in a 10 hour operation. Now I am on a test for Votrient to keep tumors from coming back taking 800 mg daily. Has anyone been on this test after a similar experience? How are your progressing? ## Liver and Kindey cancer ## Hi BeeGee, Sorry to hear about the recent challenges you've been facing. Just out of curiosity, what was your diet like b...

Watson is now actavis norco
My pharmacist that I have known for years due to chronic pain from cancer/severe spinal injuries and a totaled knee, told me last week that it is the DEA that has created the change in ALL pain meds. I have been on Watson Norco for 10 years and now I am in severe withdrawal with actavis buying out Watson. It is unbearable and my pharmacist said that people will DIE because of not being forewarned or informed ahead of time. This is all due to the people that use the drugs for getting high. Sniffing, smoking and whatever else they do has ruined it for us real patients. We all know the DEA is like God and they don't even care about us real patients that have medical records, etc. I have been suffering for over a month now and my pain doc is on extended vacation. Thank goodness for my p...

Find Pain Clinic tx
I have been on Hydrocodone for 12 and it just isn't strong enough to kill the pain any more. My pain management doctor does not have the credentials to even prescribe a schedule III, such as Oxycodone or Morphine. I have a fractured tailbone that never healed properly and experience severe muscle and nerve pain in the lower back shooting down my leg every day. I only want to be able to function. It is a fight just to get out of bed. If any one knows of a pain clinic or dr. that can help in Houston, TX who accepts new patients and cash (no insurance) please email me xxxxx@xxx {edited for privacy}. Thank you ## Are you seeing a nurse practitioner or physicians assistant then? Any registered doctor that has their license can prescribe them. Learn more pain management details he...

Stopped Levothyroxine But Still Have Persistent Acne
I took a 75mcg and later 50 mcg regimen of Levothyroxine for 3 months beginning last Thanksgiving (2013). I have always had the clearest skin of anyone I've known until taking this medication when I began developing cystic acne. After telling my doctor of the acne, he promptly told me that he'd never heard of such a side effect and recommended that I go see a dermatologist for some face wash (!). I didn't, I stopped going to that BS doctor, and I stopped taking the meds. That was at the end of February. It is now the end of August and the acne has yet to subside. I've read other forums where many of the people who've stopped the meds had their acne subside but mine is persistent! The meds have seriously messed with my hormones and I really don't know what to do o...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

recd xanax from india with gg 249, blank on back. small and rectagular. Came wrapped in plastic wrap, no bubble packs or name. bitter taste. seem to make me a little sleepy but causing mild headaches. are these real ## Hi Sarah, Based on my research, if it's real, the pill imprint "GG 249" on a white rectangle-shaped tablet should include a few score marks that EITHER look like this: G|G24|9 (but also with a partial score above/below the "2"); and on the backside of the tablet there should be three full score lines that would divide the pill into 4 pieces (if separated). OR this: GG|2|4|9 (with no score marks on the back side) Another factor you can use for verification is the size of the tablet. Legitimate one's are reported to have a size of approx. 15.00 mm. H...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

sertraline can you do this?
I currently take 100 mg of Sertraline. I ran out of pills and can't get any more until tomorrow after work. I take it each morning. I have some 25 mg Sertraline pills my Dr prescribed me a good while before increasing my mg. Is it safe and ok to take four of the 25 mg pills to equal the 100 mg I am used to taking? ## Hello, Becca! How are you? Yes, it is okay to do that. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

meaning of mg mcg
In relation to Vitamins-----A bottle of Solgar Vits. label says : B-Complex "100". The Supplement Facts Say: Vit. B6 100mg. What do the " " mean, and does the mg(lower case) mean Mg, MG, or mcg? Solgar didn't exactly answer my question. thank you for whatever your ans will be. ## Hello, Tracey! How are you? My best guess is that the "100" is just part of the name to emphasize that it's a complete B complex supplement. And the mg just means milligram, as it usually does. Is there anything else I can help with?

xanax in nacogdoches tx
I'm diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder. I've moved and don't have insurance or money to go from dr to dr I need a doctor who will prescribe xanax in or near nacogdoches or Lufkin tx. ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## I had a doctor where I used to live bu...

heraclene dibencozide
red capsule ## i really need updates here for our reqts ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## thanks ## whoew why i cant find drugs like this? i really need it badly for my grades... ## i need to know the classification, mechanism of action, indication, contraindication,adverse effects, nsg responsibility of this drug... please... ## Is there any side effects of Heraclene Dibencozide?

Concerned on dosage lowered
My doctor reduced my levothyroxine from 125 to 100, because my count is still low. Is this normal? ## Hello, EV! How are you? The dosage does need to be changed regularly, to better balance your levels, so yes, it is normal. You may eventually hit a point where you are on one steady dosage for awhile, or it may need to be changed frequently. Side effects to his medication may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes, mood swings and hair loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

Prozac and itching
I was removed from an antidepressant coctail 5 years ago and put on Prozac. It works for depression, but I have developed a horrible itching problem which I wonder if may be related to this drug. I have had diagnostics for everything. No rash. Just an increasing inability to tolerate any irritation to skin surface without literally months of horrible itching. I am being tortured to death. Any suggestions/help? ## How long has the itching been occurring? Do you take any other medications? Have you consulted a dermatologist? Itching can occur with Prozac, but it usually happens immediately, not after you've been on it for awhile.
