sprintec religiously
I have been on sprintec religiously for years, cycles are always regular, always start 4 days after the last active pill. Last month period was much lighter, this month none at all. I have never missed a pill, but don't always take them at the same time each day. Should I be concerned?

How to get off Suboxone
Im Marina Im 24 years old and a mother of 2 beautiul little boys. From the years 2006-2007 i was heavily addicted to Oxy 80 and eventually started doing herion. I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's. In June 2009 i was completly off of the methadone that first day that i was on 0Mgs I went through extreme withdrawls i went through things that i would never wish upon my worst enemy! i stayed that way for a day and a half and decided to go to a suboxone doctor. He put me on 32 mgs a day which i thought was pretty high of a dose but he explained to me that methadone withdrawls was worst then any other withdrawls. so i trusted him. Now when i go to see him every month i pretty much beg for him to start the weinin...

Cymbalta and zoloft
I currently take 250 mg of zoloft and my pdoc has me on lactimal 100mg. The lactimal doesnt seem to work anymore and i tried everything else. I have bipolar with major depression and schizo affective disorder ,adhd,and ocd. i take also haldol 2mg twice a day,klonopin 2mg a day and vyvanse 70mg a day. i have been thinking about trying cymbalta or latuda. any suggestions. i just dont want to be depressed any more . i am 40 years old and dealt with this the whole time. ## Hello, Angel! How are you feeling? I am sorry that you're suffering depression, that's very tough to deal with. The Latuda is an atypical antipsychotic, so it is very similar to the Haldol that you already take. The Cymbalta is an SNRI antidepressant, so it's related to the Zoloft, though not the same. Were th...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Oxycodone In Chicago Illinois
I live in Chicago, Illinois and I have been on Oxycodone 30mg for 3 years. My doctor retired and I haven't been able to find a doctor since to prescribe them. Can you help me and give me a doctors name that will prescribe this medication in the Chicagoland area... ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors that will prescribe any given medication. And you may be creating part of the problem yourself, if you're calling new doctors and asking them to prescribe a specific medication. Most doctors will see that as being drug seeking behavior and won't even let you get in the door. The best thing you can do is to set up an appointment with a new doctor and then just make sure they get a full copy of your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Learn more Oxyc...

Can you have withdrawls from oxycodone when switching to fentanyl patch?
Seven years of back pain with long history of muscle relaxant and more recently oxycodone and lorazepam. Docs finally did MRI and found Spondylolisthesis Grade 3-4 with bulging disc and appears vertebrae have already fused. Still being worked up by Neuro surgeon. Pain mgmt. just switched me from 10mg Vicodin every 4 hrs to 25mcg Fentanyl patch every 3 days with 7.5 Vicodin every 6-8 hrs for breakthrough. Started patch last week. First seemed to work okay but over the last two patches breakthrough pain has increased with increased pain down my legs. I get sweats then chills with pain in all my joints, arms, legs, hands, feet. Seems increasing my Vicodin and taking it more frequently is the only thing that relieves it but sometimes need 30mg of Vicodin in a short time-frame. Not sure if the

Suboxone Doctors In Indiana Who Accept Medicaid

Oxycodone Shortage In Florida 2012
Can a pharmacist just be quite and fill the script the doctor ordered for his patient.They lie to us and then fill freds script for the same thing and smile while they do it.We are tax paying citizens in pain and the DEA has made a real mess of everything. Real patients cant even get their meds. ## The whole country seems to be in a sort of bind in so far as normal patients being depicted as addicts and many who are unable to get their scripts filled no matter who they are or what they do. I think petitions such as this one do significantly help; but the real question is, are they even going to do something about these complaints even with all the petitions floating around the net? We should hope so, but knowing our gove...

Florida pain pill shortage
For all who live in Florida you are aware of the terrible problem of filling narcotic pain medication prescriptions. I am not connected with this petition but want you to be aware of it and I am providing a link to this petition so hopefully pharmacies will be forced to carry adequate supply of medication for refills. I moved to Florida to retire from Missouri. I am sorry I made this choice as I must go sometime weeks waiting on a pharmacy any of them to have quantity to fill my script. As you know 9 out of 10 times the pharmacies never have any on hand. Then we are forced to drive (not able to call) to pharmacy to other pharmacy to see if they can fill it. The law in Florida is so strict you cannot leave your prescription at the pharmacy to be filled, nor can you be provided by phone if t

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I bought some oxycontin 40 mg. to see if they could replace my 4 mg. Dilaudid. However, I did 1/2 of a 40 mg. and I felt nothing. An hour later I did my 4 mg. Dilaudid and really felt it. But they are very short lived, that's why for cronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered off of Dilaudid?...

Please see your doctor as soon as possible and inform them of this. There is a chance that you're done some internal organ damage, which may not be evident to you, yet.

orange hexagon shaped pill stamped with N8
orange hexagon shaped pill stamped with N8 ## WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS TO THIS DRUG ## I found this pill orange hexagon shaped pill stamped with N8? What is this pill used for? ## I believe this pill is used for heroine addicts to help with withdrawals. ## what is the name of this hexagon shaped orange pill stamped with N8? ## The correct ID of this pill is Suboxone, which contains 8mgs of Buprenorphine and 2mgs of Naloxone. Suboxone is an opiate used to help treat drug addiction and in some instances, cases of severe pain when other options have been exhausted. You cannot get high from it, plus since it contains the Naloxone, it will prevent you from getting high off of other narcotics while you are under Suboxone treatment. The side effects are similar to other narcotics and can incl...

Wearing off to quickly?
Hello. I suffer from several back/neck issues and I was prescribed 50 mcg fentanyl patches i have been wearing the patch for alittle over 24 hours and it seems like it is already wearing off...Is this possible? And if it is, what would be causing this?! I am starting to feel pain again and i don't want to just stick another patch on because I have heard they are very dangerous. Before these patches I was prescribed 15 mg oxycodone without acetaminophen but grew too much of a tolerance to them, plus they didn't really help the pain in the first place. After the doctor prescribed me the Fentanyl I filled the prescription and put one on...It wasen't until 12 hours after that I felt some relief and like i said before it is already wearing off it seems like and I have only had th...
