Ketamine for Depression?
This thread is an offshoot of a related one that discussed Scopolamine as a treatment for depression. /Discuss/is-anybody-being-prescribed-scopolamine-for-depression-209022_s2.htm It was recommended by the members of that thread that one be started that directly relates to ketamine and it's use to treat depression. If anyone besides myself would like to discuss it's use ias a treatment for depression, feel free to post your questions, answers and experiences here. ## thanks michael- yes, i am very interested in hearing about your experience so far with ketamine. both the iv application and the nasal route. i'm not too keen on the nasal route, but like i said, i will try that first due to cost. so, how you feeling? john ## Thanks for setting up this Discussion Michael!

blue norco 10 mg oval tablet
Do they make a smurf blue norco that looks just like tthe yellow 10s with a v on one side ## Hi Ben, I just did some research on this and wonder if you may be thinking of the imprint "V 35 97"?, which is an oval blue generic norco 10mg/650mg tablet. I don't believe they are being manufactured any longer due to the new laws restricting the amount of acetaminophen to 325mgs. But, if you want to look this pill up for verification, it also carries a National Drug Code of 00603-3885. I hope this helps!

pill with ap 212
Ap 212 was on a pill I found at a friends house. What is it for? Cannot find it any where. Looked it up on pill identifyers and it cant identfy. This is close as I can get. Its round light orange with AP 212. Can you tell me what it is? ## It is Methocarbamol. A 500mg muscle relaxer ## There is no tablet with this marking in the U.S. prescription drug databases, which means it is most likely not Methocarbamol or any other prescription drug from the U.S. It may be a foreign medication, or 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? ## Actually it says in the description that it is sometimes colored and marked that way. In fact I just received a refill of Methocarbamal from the VA t...

white round pill with 54 420
This pill is not ibuprophen 200mg. I looked it up because i had a similar looking pill, but this was white and on one side had the numbers 420 circled. There is a similar pill that is used in the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, and chrones disease plus theres more uses for it. It is also white but has the number 54 on the top and 420 on the bottom of it all on one side if the pill the other side is just plain white, and nothing is circled on it ,it is called mercaptopurine 50mg , you do not want to take this pill thinking its ibuprophen you might experience some strange side effects such as dizziness, nausiousness, and sometimes head aches that can turn into migraines. ## Hey Carma king, I'm a little puzzled by your description where you mentioned that the white round pill with ...

generic percocet 10-325 a333 white oblong
Hi, this is the first time I have been given the A333 oxycodone 10 -325. Normally I get the Watson 10 - 325 which has always been a decent generic brand. The Watsons 10 -325 are manufactured in the U.S.A. but I am not sure where the A333 are made or if they are equivalent to the Watsons. If you can answer my question it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Michael ## Hello, Michael! How are you? What country they are made in actually doesn't matter, if they are approved and available here in the U.S. they must meet the same quality and efficacy guidelines as the other generics and yes, these are equivalent. Is there anything else I can help with? ## hello my name is d, question are you a legal doctor and where do you get your medical resourses thanks for your time d. ## Hi again...

Hi I just started taking this A333 white oblong pill. (Generic Percocet. 10/325). I never had this type before and got it due to pharmacy supply. My question is has anyone noticed a difference in pain relief from other brands. Maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to work as well. Can't wait to hear some other input on this. Thanks. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis (Watson) and yes, there have been quite a few complaints about it recently. Prior to them popping up on here, I was actually not aware of this tablet and just managed to find the information on it. It appears that it must be cheaper than other generics, because more pharmacies are providing it and many people are dissatisfied. Have you consulted your doctor? They may have some idea t...

My last day on methadone 04/14/2014 at 1mg
Early monday morning (04/14/2014), I took my last dose of 1mg (.01ml) liquid. I was both scared and excited too. I have been going to the same old methadone clinic since 09/27/2007. That has been a long time. When I first started taking the methadone, the dose was between 15-30mg liquid. I quickly escalated to my highest dose of 120mg in Jan, 2008. I was on the same dose of 120mg for almost 2 years and I was sick and tired of how it made me feel. All I wanted to do was remain in my bed and sleep. I finally decided that I wanted off of this stuff and for good. I did not want to be a lifer on methadone and carrying those little lock boxes back and forth from the clinic. So on 8/7/2009, I dropped down 10mg. I felt fine. I had more energy and I told myself that I could do this, so every mon...

xanax vs. Mylan
whats the difference between the 2?? ## Hi Britney, Mylan is a pharmaceutical company that manufactures a lot of generics. So if a medicine says Mylan on it, that simply means that they are the manufacturer, and it is not the name of the med. Usually it would say Mylan and then also have some numbers on it. Does your pill have numbers on it as well? If so please post exactly what your pill says + the shape and color... and then somebody can run a positive ID on it for you. Take care! ## round tablet.

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Imipramine reviews
Does anybody have something good to say about Imipramine? ## Hi Becky, Surprisingly I haven't really seen too many reviews on Imipramine or how people have been effected by it. What I can tell you though is that most of these types of medications can and usually do affect everyone differently; so going off someone else's experience may not be the best way to gauge how it's going to effect you in the long run. More often than not, people who have a positive reaction to something usually don't take the time to post about it online. So what we typically see on forums is negative reviews for those who it didn't end up working for. Unfortunately the only way to know for certain is to try it for yourself. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Imipramine D...
