Can not locate Opana er or generic version
I have been taking the generic version of Opana er and the short active but at one location. Well I have now lost my medical insurance so I have to pay cash. I can not afford that but was checking out some of these discount cards and they have listed some of the normal pharmacy like CVS, Walgreen etc., but none off them will carry it. How can I find help to get them without paying such a high price. ## You can actually call 211 and ask for information on prescription help. They can direct you with some companies that actually send the medicine to you or pay the pharmacy. It varies with every med. I actually was approved for this for Opana but Doc changed my med. Good Luck. That stuff is EXPENSIVE!!

no period for 4 months after taking minastrin 24 fe
I started taking minastrin 24 few about 6 months ago. I spotted irregularly for the first 2 months but I have had no period since. I've been without a period for 4 months. I even take the four inactive pills and still don't start. I thought the inactive pills were for " period time ". Am I wrong? I hope nothing is wrong. ## Hello, Jenna! How are you? Unless your doctor feels there is some reason to be concerned, it's most likely nothing. Some women just don't experience periods, when taking hormonal contraceptives. Side effects may include irregular cycles, nausea, dizziness, headache, bloating, weight gain and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My ob/gyn is never concerned with anything. He just blows me off when I want to ask him a questio...

smz/tmp ds 800-160 tab interpharm
SMZ/TMP DS 800-160 TAB INTERPHARM ## This contains 800mgs of Sulfamethoxazole and 160mgs of Trimethoprim, a generic for Bactrim. This is an antibiotic. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and dizziness. ## I took 2 doses of this medicine and ended up in the ER with a splitting headache, after I threw up everything I have eaten since the 3rd grade! I was disoriented and had trouble relating what was wrong to the doctors. After 5 hours in the ER with an IV, anti-nausea and pain meds... I was able to return home. Never take this medicine! ## Is this drug really bad? If so why do doctor's still prescribe it?!!!! Thanks a concerned grinch!!!! ## Yes, I've been taking this med for 4 days and am nauseated all day and into the nite. Will quit this ...

Question?
Hi I just started taking this A333 white oblong pill. (Generic Percocet. 10/325). I never had this type before and got it due to pharmacy supply. My question is has anyone noticed a difference in pain relief from other brands. Maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to work as well. Can't wait to hear some other input on this. Thanks. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis (Watson) and yes, there have been quite a few complaints about it recently. Prior to them popping up on here, I was actually not aware of this tablet and just managed to find the information on it. It appears that it must be cheaper than other generics, because more pharmacies are providing it and many people are dissatisfied. Have you consulted your doctor? They may have some idea t...

greenstones rock,
Greenstone can be ordered by any pharmacy. Some will refuse saying they can not. That Is only because they get kick banks for going through specific pharm companies. Cheaper for them excedra. I know Safeway will order the greenstone. They are a company made by Pfizer. They basically are Pfizer so the quality of those are by far the best.

suboxone 8mg/2mg and roxy 30's
I am currently taking 8 to 10 roxy 30's a day. I have suboxones 8mg/2mg to help get clean+ off of these. I know the suboxones are the best pill made to help with the withdraws*but im wondering if for the 1st 3=5 days when im having trouble sleeping and feeling clamy if i should take like half of a roxy 30{which i have done in the past}which helps me to sleep and take away the clamy feeling or any other suggestions that u may have*thanx to anyone answering this for me ## Taking the Oxycodone pills with the Suboxone will do you no good, it contains a substance that neutralizes opiates to prevent their abuse during treatment, that is why it throws you into withdrawals. Suboxone should really not be used without a doctor's supervision, as the dosage and usage is carefully monitored ...

how to find a doctor west palm prescribe xanax
iv e been taking xanax for 22 years for my anixiey.and panic attacks ,now my doctor put me on klotopins,and they dont have the same effect,im not feeling too welll ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? What was your Xanax dose and what dose did they prescribe of the Klonopin? They are a 1 for 1 conversion, so the Klonopin should work, unless your doctor didn't prescribe enough. There is also a slight chance that it just doesn't work for you. Have you informed your doctor of the problem? These medications carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. ## I have 2 bottles of Klonopin and although I only took 4 pills, I felt they worked pretty much just like Xanax. The Doctor gave them to me because he said they wer...

Peach Pill With No Imprint
i found a peach oblong pill with darker specks on it on imprints. what is this pill? ## Your description does not provide enough information since the size, shape and color of a medication means nothing. U.S. law requires that all prescription drugs have a unique imprint on the tablets or capsules so the medication can be identified by manufacturer, substance and dosage. However, the way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, so there are many, many pills on the market, both over the counter and prescription that meet that description. ## Please help! I was given a peachy coloured pill. It's round has nothing on one side and an image like this ~ on the other side. I was told it was a 10mg Valium but it doesn't taste like a normal Valium (in fa...

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...

Day 3 of Celxa 20MGs and seeking advice..
Hello. I'm on day 3 of Celexa 20mgs and after my first dose, I woke up the next morning feeling better than I have in almost a year! But yesterday and today I feel, well, blah.... Every night when I take Celexa, about an hour later my stomach is in knots and it goes on for about 2 hours and then I get sleepy and go to bed. I awake the next morning and feel drowsy but coffee seems to help. My concern is, my doctor told me opposite of what I've read others say in that he says this medicine will not take 2 or more weeks to "kick in", he says I'll notice effects fairly quickly!? I don't feel as obsessive and my anxiety side effects aren't as debilitating but I do feel strange and very unlike myself now. Will this get better? After reading many threads, the last thin

I recently lost weight and my boobs went too i'm frm jamaica i would like to know if there is any pills in the jamaican pharmacy to help me get my boobs back? ## I recently lost my boobs what can i do to get them back i'm frm jamaica ## Hi Akeela, Sorry to hear about the concerns involving your cup size. However when you lose a lot of weight your body will inevitably conform to what it is naturally able to support; and this goes for any part of your physique. I don't know of any alternative ways to induce a larger bust, other than gaining some weight back. But if you were to speak with a doctor/gynecologist about it, they would probably suggest a surgical procedure or seeing if a hormonal pill has any effect. On a last note, (and this goes out to all women) - I think you sho...

RX for medical food " Axona" Insurance coverage?
Has anyone been able to get their insurance company to cover this prescription? Our prescription coverage dept refers us to the medical coverage dept, and back and forth they go. It is an RX, but it is considered a 'medical food'...... This is for Alzheimer's ## Hi Neednamenda, How much do they charge you for the Axona 'medical food'? If there's any other way for you to save money, I would consider trying out an Rx Savings Card (such as the one MedsChat offers "here") to help cut the cost of your prescription up front. Therefore if you don't get medical coverage for it, you can still save money in other ways. Also wanted to note that according to the manufacturer, the main ingredient of Axona is 'caprylic triglyceride'; a type of fatty acid fo...

Infections viral v.s. wisdom teeth
Ok so I had gotten a fever one morning and the day before I felt really drained of energy. then I got some little white sores on my tongue and my gums had become swollen and extremely sensitive, so much that i hurt to brush me teeth and to even eat. i went to the clinic to see what is wrong, i was tested for strep and mono but both tests came back negative. the doctor said it was just viral and to just take ibuprofen or Tylenol for the pain. well it had gotten worse so i went back and the new doctors said that i had the virus herpes simplex but did not say specifically which one. anyways she gave me a prescription on acyclovir to take for 10 days. the medication worked but now i noticed that my gums above my wisdom teeth are still very swollen and have a sort of flap on them. could all ...

Hemotologist who takes Medicaid/ Medicare and can write oxycontin 80mg and oxycodone15mg ## Hello, Connye! How are you? I don't think most hematologists will want to prescribe such medications. In most cases, you're going to have to see a pain management specialist, regardless of what your condition might be, unless you have late stage cancer. 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. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

methadone and garcinia cambogia
I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone? ## I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others ha...

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...
