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...

why am I bleeding
I've been on medroxy for 3 years but stopped in oct 2013. I got a new doctor who put me back on march 2014, I started at 60mg a day because I bleed and don't come off my period. I got down to 40mg the week before last. Last week I started the 20mg. I had intercourse for the first time in a year on 4/5. Everything was fine. I had intercourse on 4/12. On 4/14 I started bleeding and have not stopped. My bleeding is increasing. My doctor told me to up it to 40mg again. In the past was only on 5mg at the most and I have never had this problem. I can't stop bleeding. I'm giving it until Friday before I call my doctor again to see what he wants me to do. This has never happened to me before. What could be going on? ## Hello, Nina! How are you doing? The levels of progesterone t...

HYDROCO APAP 10 325inactive ingredients used
Does the drug have polyethylene glycol or poly propylene glycol in it? ## Hello, Popeye! How are you? What are the markings on the tablet in question? There are several on the market, so I can't check with inactive ingredients for you, without knowing more details. I don't think these are in any, but I'd like to be sure.

hydrocodone bitartrate w apap 5 mg 325
Can I take this medication for a headache ## Hello, Sam! How are you? It is a narcotic analgesic, Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen, so while it may help with headaches, it shouldn't be taken, unless your doctor has prescribed it for you. This 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

risperdal for severe hallucinations/ bipolar
Hi, I am 25 years old and have just been prescribed risperdal For my severe auditory, visual, and tactile hallucinations from bipolar mania psychosis. I went to therapy today and explained about my previous week, full of terrifying and vivid hallucinations and the delusional State that followed- I did not believe my husband when he attempted to explain that I was hallucinating and was sure that he would have me institutionalized (yet again), when that wasn't the case. I actually believed that mirrors were a gateway to a different spirit plane and watched as a winged demon by the name of Riley Blue came through and attempted to claim my soul if he successfully persuaded me to commit suicide. I clawed my face up when he touched my cheek. Then came Augusto, a feathered demon general, w...

wisdom tooth infection
I was started on Azithromycin by my Dr. in case I had strep throat but come to find out I have a real bad wisdom tooth infection, which is very painful..The script of Azithromycin is for 5days will this work for my infection in my tooth? ## Hello, Crystal! How are you? It may help, but 5 days may not be enough to completely eradicate the infection and it will not correct the underlying cause of the dental infection, so you'll still need to see your dentist, or the infection will keep returning. Is there anything else I can help with?

loestrin fe breakthrough bleeding
Hey there! This is my first time on birth control. I've decided to go with Loestrin Fe. I started my period at 2am on a Monday, but didn't take it until 10:30 that night. It was twenty hours after I started, not 24, so it's okay! Anyway, I've been on my period the entire time. I started on April 7th and it's April 15th today. Before birth control, my period lasted six days. It's my eighth day and I'm still bleeding. Is this breakthrough bleeding and my body getting adjusted to the pill? Just making sure! I've taken the pill every night at 10:30pm so I haven't missed one. Thanks! ## Hello, Kaitlyn! How are you? Are you still experiencing bleeding? Yes, it could be due to the contraceptive, since you just started it. However, if it keeps going as a full...

Lil blue square pill imprinted p c
Trying to find out what kinda pill this is and how to take it. ## Hello, Billy Joe! How are you? I'm sorry, but I haven't been able to find a listing for this, so far. The rather obscure imprint leads me to suspect that it's most likely something that's available over the counter. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

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...

does anyone get the zooming effect from lexapro
I got off Vybrid long ago, mainly because of the dizzy-zooming effect. I know lots of people posted the same problem. I'm starting that again recently on Lexapro. Does anyone have the same symptoms ? ## Hello, Jeff! How are you? I'm sorry that you're having a problem. However, those aren't actual medical terms, so I am not sure what you're talking about. Could you please post back and try to clarify? Be more descriptive of the issue? Thanks!

Losartan 25
After taking one Losartan 25mg at night, noticed nasal stuffiness. Is this something that will go away after taking medicine for a longer period of time ? ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Yes, Losartan can cause it as a side effect in some people that take it, I take its relative Candesartan and experienced it for awhile, too… however, yes, it did eventually go away and all is fine now.

methadone dr chronic pain lowell ma area
After 10+'years new Dr. stopped methadone and break thru Meds. for no reason, nor would give me one. Thankfully I try to take as little as needed.So I still didn't have a great time withdrawing, not fun at all. At 57 with a rare autoimmune disease that causes blood clots+ had first stroke at 36. Second at 50. Plus A-Fib. and many other related issues. No suggestions,no referral and honestly took anything other than he prescribed. So he has blacklisted me in two states, and I truly don't know why. And when I asked, he yelled one more word and I'll have you throw out. So now Constance pain, feel totally lost and WHAT about Quality of Life. And do no harm. Just want a true honest doctor, that also believes in Quality of a human beings life. Live in NH banned and also MA. Do...

Humira and live vaccinations
I was just wondering if anyone else has come across this problem. First off, I know I cannot get live vaccines while taking humira. Although, I need to get my travel vaccinations and need to take a live one. About how long is a good amount of time to wait until you can take a live vaccine after stopping humira? My doctor is taking a while to get back to me with an answer. ## Hello, Mark! How are you? I'm sorry, but I can't find any data on that, though I've searched several resources. Have you heard back from your doctor, yet? Which vaccine is it?

Mandated oxycodone withdrawl
I must of posted my problem somewhere else on this site, sorry but I can not think straight. For 6 years I have taken oxy's for RSD. Something I never heard of in my life until after 4 surgeries, including titanium cage, in a period of less than 2 years I developed firery burning sensation in right thigh. The edema made my legs look like tree trunks. Nothing could touch that leg. Being a female I was able to switch to wearing skirts and sleeping with blankets held up with a contraption. No matter how much Vicodin or hydrcodone I was given nothing touched the pain. When, for those of you who can remember, I became like Linda Blair in the Exorcist, screaming I was on fire and feeling like my head was spinning around. I was taken to psychotherapist ( Dr's who study pain for additio...

Oxycodone Vs Fentanyl Withdrawals
I have just switched from oxycodone to fentanyl patches. I will be withdrawing from them following sugery. any suggestions as to which is easier to withdraw from? Thanks!!! ## Well, the Fentanyl is actually much stronger than the Oxycodone, a 0.025mg dosage of it is equal to 5mgs of Oxycodone, so it is going to be the harder one to withdraw from, if it is stopped abruptly. However, the other fact of relevance is how long you will be using it. If it is only for a short period of time, them the withdrawals may not be too rough, though they may still be annoying. Has your doctor provided you with any advice? ## i have been on fentanyl for a long time. prior to this was on a bunch of oxycodone. to give you an idea i was taking anywhere to 3 or 4 of the 80s per day and 5 or 6 of the Roxi 30s...
