Sudden Withdrawal from Neurontin
223 Replies RSS
I have been taking 600 mg of Neurontin 4x a day for about 2 years and recentlty ran out of this medication due to excrutiating slow service from mandatory mail order RX company.... I was extremely agitated during this time (approx. 5 days), nervous, stressed out, etc. Has anyone else had these symptons as a result of sudden withdrawal from Neurontin? I can't understand why this happened, I felt so scared and lousy for that time. Is this a known reaction for this med? I haven't been able to find an answer. I take it for relief from carpel tunnel syndrom. Thanks ## Almost any med, or substance, even you morning coffee, will cause some withdrawal symptoms when you have been used to having it in your body for awhile, and suddenly stop taking it. Did it ease when you finally started ...

Roxicodone™ (oxycodone hydrochloride) Tablets USP, CII 30 mg, generic from India
6 Replies RSS
I recently received some roxycodone's 30mg from India and they don't look anything like original blue 30mg roxies.. They look like maybe watson 10/500 hydro/apap or maybe 7.5 hydro/apap with lots of filler.. What was strange is the sealed packaging actually says roxycodone and describes the little blue pill with the 54 199 imprint used to identify the roxy's. These don't have any imprint on them. I'm sure they're not real or maybe some other sort of pill, but I'm very curious to see what the picture database pulls them up as (if anything as they're generic yellow looking capsules, but I also have the 10-pack packaging that claims there roxy's they were sealed in for reference as well. ## India has different marking rules than the FDA here in the US. T...

suboxone and caresource
3 Replies RSS
I have been on suboxone at 8-12mg per my doc. I needed more like 16 so I switched drs. Now my new doctor upped my dosage and the pharmacy is saying g I should have 11 day supply left. CNt they fill it early if the dosage was increased? I have caresource. Thanks ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? They would need a new prescription from the doctor showing that the dosage was changed, in order to fill it early for you. They can't just take your word for it. 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? ## hello Jackie please guide me in the right direction. I am addicted to opanas and can't find a suboxone doctor who will tak...

Need a Doctor In South Philadelphia, PA to prescribe percocets for pain.
11 Replies RSS
Had disc replacement with fusing neck area, now have lower back pain from deteriorating disc and arthritis with sciatica issues. Dr. assumes it's for drug use. Sick of the looks I get. I am a 47yr old wife and mother of 2, who works full-time sitting in front of a computer all day long. Why do I have to suffer for those that get them to sell. I am so disgusted -have insurance and can't use it -please find me a doctor who will believe me and is not afraid to write what I know my body works well with! ## Well, what type of doctor are you seeing? Is it just a GP or a pain specialist? And, how are you going about getting treatment? These 2 questions both play a role in determining if you get the help you need. The first is because under the new laws, general practitioners and surgeo...

Propanolol Side Effects/Severe Shortness of breath esp. at night
3 Replies RSS
I started taking Propanolol for PVC's 2 weeks ago. 10mg once a day. That made me dizzy so i cut it up into two doses. 5 mg twice a day. That seemed to work well. I did have a few side effects for about 7 days....extremely cold hands, shortness of breath, dizziness but then I felt great for about 3 days. Now it is horrible. I started feeling REALLY tired. Can't hold my eyes open tired. Can't seem to get woke up of the mornings and now for the last 2 nights I have been so short of breath it is waking me up. Like I will fall asleep and right after I doze off, I wake up by gasping for air. I have never had this problem before and it is worrying me. I have had several Ekg's in the last 10 years and all have been normal. Last one I had was 10 months ago. Someone suggested Ader...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
703 Replies RSS
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 ...

substitute for hydroxyzine
1 Reply RSS
used for allergies and anxiety ## Hello, D Jane! How are you? There are quite a few other antihistamines available, some via prescription and some over the counter. But many don't help as much for anxiety, but one over the counter option would be Diphenhydramine and another prescription option would be Promethazine. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

HAVING PROBLEMS WITH PRADAXA
1 Reply RSS
Since I started with this drug, over a year ago, I have had diarrhea. Now I am having stomach pains. A stool sample showed hidden blood. I am being prepared for a colonoscopy. I feel this med is the culprit, even though cardio says he doesn't think so. I am going to ask for a different med. See if I can get this under control. ## Hello, Barb! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. According to the side effects listed by the FDA, Pradaxa has been known to cause blood in the stool of some people that take it, along with bleaching, indigestion, heart burn and burning throat. Thus, it very well could be due to this medication, it's actually listed as being a fairly common side effect. Is there anything else I can help with?

pepto bismol vs. Gaviscon
1 Reply RSS
What is the difference between the 2 OTC meds of Pepto Bsmol and Gaviscon ## Hello, Patricia! How are you? Pepto-Bismol contains Pink Bismuth, also known as Bismuth Salicylate. According to the FDA, it is listed as being used to treat heartburn, upset stomach, indigestion and diarrhea. However, Gaviscon as manufactured by Reckitt Benckiser contains sodium alginate, sodium or potassium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, it is an antacid that's listed by the FDA as being used to treat or prevent heartburn and GERD. Typical side effects to both may include dizziness and flatulence. But, Pepto-Bismol treats more issues, though not everyone is able to take it. Is there anything else I can help with?
