H-86 cancer cure
5 Replies RSS
This lady flames big drug companies for putting profits before life, if she has the answer to so many chronic illnesses with things such as H-86 that cures cancer, why doesn't she go public with these miracle cures. Dont get sick peoples hopes up, speak up with the answers and just say what is involved, or is she in it just for money also. Why do dying people need to subscribe or get books from her.. if she truly cared and is not a HYPOCRITE give out this info now. ## Hello, Woody56! How are you? Thank you for the valuable post! I agree with you. I will not changed my opinion, until it's proven to me that it's wrong and this substance really exists and is available to the public, as claimed. Many people have asked about it over the past few months and I have repeatedly searc...

A month at SAMs club if they ever have them. After paying rent ,phone electric and food I don't have anything left...they took away all my food stamps but 16 there any company or place that can help me ## Hello, Ronnie! How are you? Currently there isn't, due to the fact that it is available as a generic, which is normally cheaper. However, on most pages of this site, towards the lower right, is a prescription drug discount card that may help. It is free to sign up for, you just click the link, enter your email address and print it. Alternatively, you could try asking yo...

Unusual side effects
2 Replies RSS
Years ago I took some kind of steroid pill that my ENT dr.put me on for a sinus infection. I don't remember what dose or how many days I was suppose to be on it but the first pill I took made me feel really weird like unusual and un clear thinking. Kinda like crazy feeling in my head. Now my ER doctor gave me a a pack of Methylprednisolone 6 day supply =first day 6 pills 2nd day 5 pills 4th 4pills etc, but I am really afraid to try steroids again after the first experience. I told this to the ER dr but he told me they make everyone kinda feel weird, so I really don't know what to do with his answer to my concern, and if I did take the first dose and it made me feel weird, what should I do? ## Hello, Diane! How are you? Generally, the side effects you feel that make you feel weir...

is 400 mg of seroquel too strong
2 Replies RSS
Is a dosage of 400 mg of seroquel too strong? Only taking 1 makes a family member sleep in a near coma-state? Also seeing some labored breathing. Should we go to a hospital for that? ## Hello, Jennie! How are you? It could be too strong of a dose for them. The sleeping isn't a major concern, because that usually tends to improve, once their body gets used to the medication, but that may take 4 to 5 weeks. However, the labored breathing is something that should be addressed by their doctor. The FDA lists the other typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Are they on any other medications? ## Yes, she was prescribed 800 mg of Seroquel but only takes one per day because sleeping so much. She is also prescribed...

Nuvigil not working after 2 days???
1 Reply RSS
Dr. started me on 150mg Nuvigil last week. I am chronically tired, unable to focus or concentrate, unmotivated and always feel somewhat "foggy". I started with 1/2 tablet (75mg), and first 2 days I felt simply amazing. Like a switch was flipped. I felt completely alert and focused, happier, energetic and motivated to do so much that I never have the drive to do! I tried a full dose on day 3 and it was not good- I had all the unpleasant side effects (rapid heart beat, dizziness, jitters) but instead of making me focused and alert, it made me feel jumbled and agitated. So I went back to 75 mg. I can still tell it's in my system b/c my heart rate still increases a little, but other than that I can't tell that it's working anymore. 2-4 hours in I feel that little bit of ...

Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
94 Replies RSS
My doctor has had me on the 100 fentanyl patch for 1 year now. He is going to take me off it. Can you just stop taking it with out side effects or withdrawls. Please tell me the proper way to get off this patch. Please help me, I have the doctor appointment tomorrow and want to know what to say. So far it sounds like his plan is just to take me off cold turkey. I am scared of withdrawls I am a mom of 5 kids and need to be ok. Please help. ## No, it is not safe to go cold turkey. I have had a doctor tell me that no one has ever died from withdrawal. Fentanyl withdrawal can slow or even stop your breathing. I have been on a 350 mcg dose of fentanyl patcheds every 48 hours for 10+ years. I was in a serious car accident w/ligament & tendon injury, then they thought chronic pain/arthriti...

coveram using
2 Replies RSS
Hello, dear doctor. I'm 65 years old and I was using Tritace 10 mg (1 daily), Natrilix SR 1.5 mg (1/2 or 1 daily) and Noten 50 mg (1/2 daily) for my high blood pressure for the past 8 years.Now the cardiologist asked me to change to Coveram 10/5, because my medications are too old now. After 10 days taking Coveram I noticed that my average blood pressure from 137/81 became 134/78 which is almost the same, but my pulse increased from 64 to 75 (in average). What is the normal pulse should be in my age? And can I stay on Coveram only or add Noten (1/4 or 1/2 tablet) with it? Or get back to previous medications? Your opinion is very important to me. Thank you. Kind Regards, Jack ## I live in Australia, New South Wales, Sydney. I concern about the pulse. After I started Coveram it became...

Withdrawal from opiates
3 Replies RSS
Why do you think docs prescribe Suboxone or Methadone for opiate withdrawal, make patients stay on it until they are completely addicted to it for years, then have to treat them to come off it? Why don't they treat a 5 day opiate withdrawal with a benzo to sleep, clonidine, gabapentin, trazodone for a week or two instead. It would sure help society not be addicted to Suboxone. Worst drug ever. ## Most people, even if they are addicted, can't just take a ton of medications to try and sleep through their withdrawals and be out of work for that length of time. Treatment with Suboxone or Methadone enables them to still work and be productive, while undergoing addiction treatment and, unlike Methadone, Suboxone usually enables most people to eventually become completely drug free, al...

pantoprazole with methadone
1 Reply RSS
Cam you take,Pantoprazole and Methadone?? ## Hello, Hank! How are you? Yes, they can be taken together, as long as your doctor approves. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Pantoprazole as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Methadone 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. Are there any other questions or concerns?
