suboxone and caresource
I have been on suboxone at 8-12mg per my doc. I needed more like 16 so I switched drs. Now my new doctor upped my dosage and the pharmacy is saying g I should have 11 day supply left. CNt they fill it early if the dosage was increased? I have caresource. Thanks ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? They would need a new prescription from the doctor showing that the dosage was changed, in order to fill it early for you. They can't just take your word for it. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Round Red Pill With Letter D On It
Hi. Ive been drinking alot recently and ive found a red tablet with D on oneside. I have no idea where its from or where i got it from please help. Thank you ## Hi Leanne, Are there any other markings on the pill you have besides a "D" ? The closest match I can find is Choledyl (100 mg); which is used in the treatment of asthma, maintenance and belongs to the drug class methylxanthines. It is a round red pill with the imprint PD 210. Maybe the other markings got rubbed off at some point? Manufacturer: Parke-Davis Learn More: Choledyl Details Please post back if you have any more questions so I can further assist you. ## Amitriptyline probably 50mg

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...

i was taking oxycodone 10mg pink k56 pills and then my doctor swiched me to norco do they have the same ingredients
Does norco 5/325 have the same ingredients as the little pink pill k56 which is oxycodone 10mg. My doctor swicth me due to the strength. The k56 pills are stronger he said and i needed a weaker pill to be able to work. So he prescribed me the norco. What im saying here is that are they the same but different doses? ## No, they are not the same. The Norco contains the narcotic Hydrocodone coupled with Acetaminophen. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Levosulpiride- Rabeprazole COMBINATION
what is the rationale of rabeprazole levosulpiride combination ## When used with a proton pump inhibitor, such as the Rabeprazole, the Levosulpiride is added for its prokinetic properties, which can facilitate gastric emptying.

procedure of taking trust pill
can i take the trust pill after my menstruation bec as ive search in internet there says u must take the pill on the first day of mens but my firend told me after the mens so tell me pls im confuse bec i want to use trust pill so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month. Are there any comments or questions? ## can i use trust pill as a quick start?

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
ive been given fentanyl 50mg pain patches an i was just wondering if its okay to cut one in half an chew on it? ## I would say definitely NOT - The Fentanyl transdermal patch is supposed to be absorbed by the body gradually. If you were to chew on it you would be taking a very dangerous risk - this is a very strong medication! Chewing on it would essentially release 3 days worth of of a narcotic into your body which is more powerful than morphine! Please post back with any other thoughts you have about this and please be safe! ## Obviously, chewing the patch is unsafe, but again...people are going to chew them. You can chew em as long as you take only small portions at a time. Just moderate yourself and don't overdue it. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 TIMES mo...

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.

highest dosage for xanax
My relative was taking xanax in a low dose. He said his physician increased the amount to 300mg. We think he is mistaken about the dosage amount. What is the dosages for xanax. What is the highest dosage Thanks ## 10 mg ## Hello, Bea! How are you? The highest available dosage of Xanax is 2mgs in the regular release up to 3 times a day and 3mgs in the time released formulation. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Addiction to opiate pain pills.
What meds are commonly used in outpatient rehab to stop using opiate pain pills. ## The one that is most commonly used is suboxone. It is a wonderful medication that allows you to go off opiates without having to feel the horrendous opiate withdrawals. You must be off opiates at least 24 hours to take it. Having opiates in your system while taking suboxone can make you very sick, I know this from experience. Hope this helps and good luck! ## The other one commonly used is Methadone, but unlike Suboxone, many people treated with it require a lifetime maintenance dose and never become completely drug free. 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. And as to the Su...

Fentermina/Axcion 30mg
I have been taking Fentermina/Axcion 30mg faithfully since April 2008 when I was 32yrs old and 5'4-5'5 and weighed in at 185lbs. I'm 33ys old now and to this day I weigh 147lbs. I haven't been this small since 2005. At the beginning I used to have really bad side effects such as really bad migraines, insomnia and so forth. Now a days, I only have dry mouth and am very thirsty. My headaches aren't as bad as they used to be and my insomnia either. I have no complaints especially because it's helped me suppress my appetite and helped me lose so much weight. I have been taking 30mg and take it once a day in the morning and by the time I'm ready to go to bed, I'm drained and ready to go to sleep with no problems. ## i'm trying to get a hold of some phenter...

Or is it treated just like liquid dose? Can u get methadone pills at any Hospitol or pharmacy? ## Regular doctors cannot prescribe it for addiction treatment, they can only prescribe it for pain. If you were in severe withdrawal and went to an ER, they'd have to treat you to stabilize you, but they are only required to do so, until you are out of danger and they don't have to prescribe Methadone.
