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!! ## Hi Janet, Sorry to hear about your situation. I noticed that you mentioned having chec...

Suboxone withdrawal after taper question.
I've been on suboxone 7 years. Started at 24 mgs and recently tapered down to .25 mgs. I planned on skipping one day, then two, then three and so on. HOWEVER....I am on day four and what do you know? Hardly any symptoms. And no terrible symptoms at all. I've been restless a little, pupils a little big. WTH is going on? I've read all these terrible stories about kicking sub, I've been terrified to even try...and here I sit just fine on day four?! Is the worst to come? Should I keep holding my breath? Please any advice is appreciated ## Hi, The first time I tapered off subs I was pleasantly surprised. I tapered slowly from 12mg to .5mg. The sub dr. I had at time was behind me on this. Started getting high about year later and started subs on my own and tapered kind of fast...

withdrawal symptoms lipitor
How long before muscle aches and weakness subside after discontinuing Lipitor ## Had been on 10mg for 4 years. recently after muscle ache issues I discontinued Lipitor. 3 weeks into it I still have weakness in limbs.

It is also suggested that if symtoms persist, or get worse, you should notify your MD. To learn more click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## What are the symptoms of Lipitor withdrawal? ## I have been on 20mg of Lipitor for about 15 years.

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...

Need Los Angeles Doc For Adderall Prescription
I am in Los Angeles on business and ran out of my Adderall XR 20mg. My doctor in DC sent me a script but no one will fill it due to a new CA law. I need a doctor in Los Angeles to write a new script so I can fill it. I am now out and need it as soon as possible. I have the current out of state script and the DC doctor to prove my history. Please help! ## What new law? I live in L.A.- can your doctor call it in? Or usually if u are a longstanding user, your pharmacy (if it has a location here where you are ex: CVS, WALGREENS) will give you the supplemental supply. Usually a 2-day supply. ## Nope you cant have it called in. Its a Level 2 Controlled Substance. They won't get confirmation from my doctor. It apparently has to come from a California doctor. Trust me, I went to 4 different...

New Opana Is Out Now - March 15
I got my new Opana Prescription this week and it is the new formulation. The old ones were six sided and the new one is round. The new formulation, that the FDA approved, is supposed to be the same quality as the old Opana we are used to. I hope so. I am going to include the links to the articles that discuss this at the bottom, the latest article is directly from the makers of Opana and is from February. The old stock of Opana is all supposed to be gone from the shelves by now and the pharmacists are all supposed to be using the new formulation. Let us know here how you think the new stuff is working for you. Is it the same as the old stuff? IS there a coating on the new stuff that changes its effectiveness like the way the new formulation of Oxycontin did when it came out in 2010? Let...

Sleep paralysis w/ hallucinations
Has anyone else experienced sleep paralysis accompanied by hallucinations since starting viibryd? I have been on the medicine for about 4 months now and for the last 2 1/2 months have had several very scary episodes of sleep paralysis... I have never been on a anti-depressant before and never experienced sleep paralysis until i started this medicine. I am a 23 year old female and i take no other meds except a daily multi-vitamin. Ive noticed that if i accidentally miss a viibryd pill i have sleep paralysis... but have also had it on occasions of not missing a pill. It occurs about once a week... its to the point where i dread going to sleep at night in fear of sleep paralysis, but the hallucinations that come along with it are what I dread the most. Has anyone else had a similar experie...

yellow small round pill with line on one side ribbon (or symbol) on other side
small yellowish pill, scored on one side and a weird symbol like a ribbon or something on the other side...was told it was morphine...is it in fact morphine? ## could be valium. ## That is 4mg Dilaudid ## I know what dilaudid look like, this lady told me they were morphine but i cant find a pic of the pill anywhere, theres no mg amound on the pill, the pill may actually be light green, i wish i could take a pic because the symbol is hard to describe ## Hi Rae (post #3), I found a prime suspect to the ribbon-like symbol you described on a few different clozapine tablets that also have a score line on the backside. But because there are other numbers on these tablets as well, I'm wondering if maybe their manufacturer (Teva Pharmaceuticals) could be the same company who makes the table...

half dark grey with a light grey cap; capsule with no markings
I had my meds with me at school I was coming from an appointment from the psychiatrist I had a med change I chamge for my gym hour when I came back my pills were still in place but there were extra pills now they were large half grey and a half light grey cap for the capsule it had no markings Im assuming someone was pulled out for having drugs on them and ditched them in my purse the office was well aware I had my pills on me me being 18 there was no issue Im not sure what these pills are or what to do with them. ## Hi araxel, After reading your description I get the sense that these are probably something that you should dispose of; especially since there's no real marking on them to identify whatever it might be. If they were Rx medications from the US they would have an imprint ...

xanax purple
xanax 10 scored film coated oblong purple color ## First, I would like to state that there is no 10mg Xanax on the market, it is only available in a maximum of 2mgs of Alprazolam. That said, are there any markings on the tablets? It is the markings that enable us to identify them. I am also not finding any purple tablets, but there are several blue, oval tablets, some of the markings include: G 3721, 1mg GG 258, 1mg 2089 V, 1mg BP 632, 1mg 605, 1mg and ALP 1 APO. And this is not a comprehensive list, since it is available as a generic. Can you post back with the markings on the tablets in question? ## The only markings on this tablet are Xanax 1.0 - not 10. There is nothing else on it at all and it is coated with a film, whereas alprazolam is not and is blue, the supplier said it is a b...

percocet l484
The pill is white oblong and has L484 ## White oblong pill with L484 on one side. I was told it was percocets but not really sure. Please help ## Hi Liz, I believe I have identified your pill as 500 mg of Acetaminophen manufactured by Kroger with a National Drug Code of 30142-0484. Acetaminophen (Paracetamol) is classified as a mild analgesic. It is commonly used for the relief of headaches and other minor aches and pains and is a major ingredient in numerous cold and flu remedies. In combination with opioid analgesics, paracetamol can also be used in the management of more severe pain such as post-surgical pain and providing palliative care in advanced cancer patients. Though acetaminophen is used to treat inflammatory pain, it is not generally classified as an NSAID because it exhibit...
