is meloxicam a sulfa drug
Is meloxicam a sulfur drug? If you are allergic to sulfur can you take meloxicam? ## Hello, Suzy! How are you? Are you allergic to sulfur, or to sulfa drugs? They aren't actually the same exact things. When you are talking about being allergic to the sulfa drugs it actually refers to Sulfonamides. And no, Meloxicam isn't one of them. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

doctors that prescribe xanax in ocean county nj
hi my charity care ran out this month and i have to find a doctor who will continue my script of 1mg klonopin or prescribe xanax instead because they work better for me. if anyone knows of any doctors in my area please reply with their name!! thank you so much. ## Hello, Tres! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem you've encountered, but you're not going to be able to just stroll into another doctor and have them prescribe it, or get them to prescribe it without your seeing them for appointments. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, you'll need to a specialist. Can you renew your charity care? Or do you qualify for any type of assistance?

Youngstown,Oh people in pain
Hello, I live in Youngstown, Oh. An area going through a recent "DEA dragnet". I really don't know what else to call it. Several Pharmacies and at least one very large Pain Management Clinic were raided in the past 8 or 9 months. This has caused so much more pain and suffering for the folks who were already suffering and in pain I don't have the vocabulary to express the frustration, helplessness, humiliation & anger towards the DEA and Ohio Pharmacy Board's self righteous & totally clueless "leaders" who're dictating to the doctors how much pain medication they can prescribe because they've determined the "trigger point" limit of certain narcotic pain medicines patient's have been taking for years. They put the fear of God in the ...

Tramadol 'Rare' Side Effects
My opinion is stay the hell away from this drug. I took it for less than a week for severe back pain. I experienced the following, all of which indicate a deadly allergic reaction and are supposed to be rare: -extreme swelling of the tongue to the point where my teeth were cutting into it; -trouble sleeping/night terrors; -constant itching at night that was affecting my sleep; -frequent feeling of having to urinate. The drug did barely anything for my pain and I had to up my dose within two days. That was when the side effects started. Again, not worth it. Please stay away. Pharmacists and doctors will insist that the drug is safe but it isn't. I've also personally talked to three people who have had seizures as a result of this drug. Ibuprofen will do as much for pain as Tramad...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

Adverse reation to Percocet
My husband had shoulder surgery. he is on Percocet, his complete attitude has changed. he is very aggressive, paranoid, full of anxiety down right nasty. Withdrawn complete attitude change. Before the he took Hydrocodone for his injury. He was in severe pain, yet had the same great personality. I feel that he is having a adverse reaction to the Percocet. Would like to have answer or comment if that's possible. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? Yes, opiates can cause that in some people that take them, it could be that the Oxycodone in the Percocet just doesn't agree with him. This could also happen if he's abusing them, but if you've no reason to think that, then it is most likely just a bad reaction to it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit for...

Success with Jetrea? Side effects subside?
I am scheduled for Jetrea 4/30. I am wondering if your side effects have subsided and would you do it again. ## Hoping to hear from people who used Jetrea to close Macular Hole. I am wondering about lasting side effects. Do you think it was worth it? Did you need to go on to have to have surgery? Any thoughts, opinions and insights on Jetrea are appreciated. ## I have had a successful experience with Jetrea. I have just posted a brief description of my post injection recovery here and have kept a blog. I hope my comments will be of help to you. ## Thank you so much for sharing your story.
