green round pill with heart logo
Found small aqua green pill on my bench with a heart logo on 1 side and 2 triangle shapes on the other. Not mine and i hav sml kids who could hav got to it can u tell me what it is? ## I have no idea but im telling you now, Ive never heard of any pharmaceutical company that stamps hearts on pills. Most likely its molly or something in that class. ## Hi suzie, Based on my research I think Kevin may be on to something with his guess on molly. I actually came across a photo of round light green pill with an embedded heart logo on one side and a score on the other; which was also identified as such. I'm not sure about the triangle shapes you mentioned, but a few things to take note of in this particular pill are the texture (i.e. chalky?), smell, and even the taste or dimensions if you ...

CUSTOMER SEVICE kera gro
I think this company is just out to cheat people and take their money. They tell you that you are only being charged for the price of their shipping and nothing more. No one really calls you to explain that they are going to charge you a non refundable fee of 87 dollars. If it is as good as they claim why don't they accept returns and only give two weeks for the trial. Their customer service is also so poor, the lady sounds so rude and you can stay on the phone for ten minutes before someone attends to your call. Their website does not provide any means of order cancellation either.

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

Withdrawal from Vyvanse
I have been on Vyvanse for 4 weeks and I am now tapering off. I was going to quit cold turkey , but I wke up this morning and felt like I'd been hit by a truck. It's been a few hours and I still feel like I have a mild case of the flu. Anyway, I started 4 weeks ago and the first 3 days I never felt better in my life. I 'd never been so productive, focused, and organized! By day 7 , I was back to my normal under- acheiving, scrammbled , self. Then my Dr. raised my dose from 30 mg to 50. Well this threw me into severe anxiety. I have been chewing my nails till they bleed. I can't seem to stop. I have a feeling of being completely overwhelmed, my house is trashed and it's driving me nuts, but I have no energy or drive to get up and clean it.....Can anyone else out there...

i cold turkeyed methadone at 3mgs and methemphetamines at the same time and i am getting dizzy spells should admit my self to a hospital
i cold turkeyed methadone at 3mgs and methemphetamines at the same time and i am getting dizzy spells ## Well, what you are experiencing is a normal withdrawal symptom. We aren't medical professionals and only a doctor at said hospital could decide whether or not you require admission. If the symptoms are very bad or worsen, then yes, you should go to your nearest ER, as some withdrawal effects can be very dangerous, possibly deadly. Are you experiencing any other symptoms? ## Yes. Probably was a bad idea.

prednisone20 mg i must ve read wrong and took 3tabs at the same time a few hours ago should worry can still
I took 3 pills accidental because I read the label wrong. I'm so worried to even go to sleep ugh. Can anything happen to me? Can I still take my sleeping pills, muscle relaxers and my pain pill wish is percocet 20mg... please help! I've never been so worried.:-( ## You'll be fine. 60 MG is still a starting dose. Perhaps be more careful next time? ;/ If it happened to me, I would still take my Percocet, sleeping pills, and muscle relaxers. ## No do NOT mix perocet with muscle relaxers and sleeping pills. It will interfere with your respiratory system. Remember what happened to Heath Ledger? First of all, 20mg of percocet is awfully high on its own. Don't compound the risk. ## And as to the other reply, 60mg IS NOT a starting dose for percocet. That is insane. They only ma...

Thanks to all in advance. Sweetpea ## Hello, Sweetpea! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see specialists now, to have such medications prescribed.

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

hypotears shortage
Hello why is there a shortage of Hypotears? I've checked CVS online and they're out of stock. Please suggest another online retailer. Thanks. ## Hi Tonket, I'm not aware of a shortage, but I have heard on several accounts that Hypotears was eventually discontinued by a number of different retailers (including Walmart, CVS, etc). I haven't figured out the reasoning behind it being discontinued, but it appears that some internet shops (such as Amazon) still carry Hypotears made by Novartis. So that may be your next best bet for obtaining some before they run out of stock at some point. Do you know what makes these eye drops any different than other similar products on the market? ## Not sure why they discontinued. They were theconly drops that work for me ## Systane Ultra ...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At peoplespharmacy.com there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...

Now i am having foot drop condition i am able to move my leg fingers little bit.. Is maxgalin is proper drug to treat foot drop condition. plz send u r valuable Suggestions ## @Vijay, Sorry to hear about what had happened to your legs during that accident. I really hope you manage to make a full recovery. From what I could gather, Maxgalin (Pregabalin) is commonly used for treating the pain associated with nerve damage. So it sounds to me like the doctor gave you the right type of medication for your condition. But none-the-less these kinds of injuries can often take a long time to heal, depending on the severity of it. Yo...
