oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

Day One Report, Lisinopril HCTZ 5 mg.
Age 44 Female, family history of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension. Finally went to the internist after feeling weird for about one year--I kept testing high BP repeatedly over the last year. I have 6 members of my family on lisinopril. Day One Lisiniopril HCTZ Report. To ease into it, I took a half pill (10 mg pill cut in half, so 5 mg). Side effects started within 2 or 3 hours. I had a (all too often these days) migraine when I woke up, so I cannot blame the drug for that. After I woke up, I took my BP 131/85, Pulse 83. Then I took my first half pill. Side effects: dry raspy irritated throat, it made it harder to talk at work, pretty bad muscle stiffness and cramping up and down my back (OUCH), general fatigue, weakness in arms, i tried to lift a laundry basket and i felt both of my u

Buro Sol discontinued?
I went to my pharmacy today here in Canada to be told that Smith Kline Glaxo is no longer making Buro Sol. Is this the case and, if it is, what are my alternatives? ## You mean the antiseptic powder? Unfortunately, since it's never been available in the U.S., I can't find much information on it or why it was discontinued. I can't even find a listing of the ingredients. Learn more antiseptic details here. Did you try asking a pharmacist if they can recommend an alternative? I would, but I'm not sure what's available in Canada. ## I currently am using Buro-sol powder with water to make solution. I live in a town west of Toronto Canada and its available here in most if not all the pharmacy's. some are now keeping the powder behind the counter but others have it with...

difference in metformin 500mg tab zyd and sandoz
I have taken metformin 500mg tabs Sandoz for years today when I picked up my medicine they gave me metformin 500 mg tab zyd. What is the difference in the two? ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Sandoz and Zydus are just the manufacturers, so that's the only difference based on what you've posted. Your pharmacy is just carrying one that's been manufactured by a different company.

Weaning off pristiq
I just wanted to tell all of you trying to get off pristiq, its possible. I was on pristiq for severe panic attacks for 6 months. It saved my life. It gave me a chance to slow down my career, gave me a huge wakeup call. This drug put a cloud over my brain. I was not my happy, fun loving self. I was like a step ford wife. You cant wean off this pill. I was on 50mg. I did every other day for a month. Every third day for two weeks then cold turkey. It really was not so bad. I layer on my couch for three days, cried a bit and watched movies. I'm happily on all holistic medications, no longer a slave to pristiq. If I can beat anxiety, anyone can. My biggest advice.. Exercise. Next, surround yourself with positive people. Three, talk out your problems. Good luck. ## Fantastic advice and v...

is my doctor doing something illegal
my husband has been seeing his pain dr for over a year now..he only accepts cash($200 for every 2 weeks)..now i understand paying the $200 to be seen,but there was one time where for xmas the office was going to be closed for a week or 2..so when we came in,he had 2 scripts..1 for that time an 1 for 2 weeks from that date..now,my question falls..was it legal to charge us $400,instead off just the $200,cause we weren't coming bk in the next time? i felt like he was basically selling us the script!! how can he justify charging us for a "visit" we didn't need to come to? an now again,my husband was told last week the Dr would be out of town for a week an he needed to stop in early to pick up his script,there was only the desk nurse or secretary there,not sure if shes even a...

Daliresp Experience
I have been on Daliresp for one month. I have noticed significant improvement in my lungs. By that I mean the mucus is gone, wheezing is gone. My lungs seem to be getting clear and do not feel as heavy as they did before I started taking it. I have had my bouts of depression, I am never hungry, which is a problem because I am underweight as it is. Just wondering if anyone else has had success with this drug. I was hoping to get off oxygen at some point. Don't know if I can achieve that or not. ## I don't have a lot of information on this medication, since it is very new to the U.S. market and we haven't had a lot of posts about it, either, for the same reason. Have you tried discussing this with your doctor? They may have some ideas on how to safely increase your appetite an...

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess.

Humira resistance
I have been on Humira for about 5 years and it has been a life saver. In the past 3 months or so I've found that it would only help for 10 - 12 days instead of the 2 week cycle I've have been on. Now I'm down to about 80% effectiveness and only helps for about a week. Has anyone experience a resistance to the drug after a period of time? ## Hello, Richard! How are you? It is normal for that to happen with any medication that you are on for a long period of time, it can vary from person to person, so there is no time frame that can be given. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? They may have an idea on how to help you.

local pain management Dr. in athens ga.
I need to get back in to pain management now that I have medicare ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, most specialists are swamped and it's rather hard to get in with them. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, that may be the quickest way to find the help you need.

white oblong pill with f on one side and nothing on the other
I found a white oblong pill with f on one side and nothing on the other. I was wondering what this was. ## Hello, Joe! How are you? I'm sorry, but I haven't been able to find a listing for anything that matches this description, so far and the rather obscure imprint leads me to suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product, of some type. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

I'm favor Dr.'s taking a stand for and not against pain management.
Advocats for pain management and who are making headway against ridding sufferers of their necessary medicine....my hat is off to you. Does anyone know of an area in the U.S. where 10/500 are still being scripted? Loratab is the only real medicine that keeps me existing as a normal person. I'm not asking for anything more, just a normal pain free life. ## That dosage is no longer being manufactured, so it isn't available anywhere. Due to the detrimental effects that long-term use of high doses of Acetaminophen can have on the liver, as well as the risk of overdose toxicity, the FDA ask manufacturers to stop making them at the start of the year. Thus, the maximum amount available per dose now is just 325mgs. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit formin...
