Generic anxiety panic meds
I found something out. I've been through every generic of xanax there is I've been on them for 14 yrs. some people love greenstone, which I have, some people love sun, which I have, and I build a tolerance too quick too sandoz. So I spoke to a professional. He said there was a generic brand of zanax 2mg er that was banned in the us because it is sooo stong. One pill takes care of you instead of taking 4 -8 a day. The us wants to make money. He told me the name and he ordered them for me. I missed the mailman I won't be able to try theses till Monday. But they are called pex-2. They have no fillers. Straight xanax 2mg er. Very very strong. Even a zanax pill has fillers. I'm going to try Monday, I'm going to stick with these. ## Your Doctor ordered you a medicine that ...

Are you periods regular? Is the bleeding heavy or light? Is there any clotting?

can you get a pres. for both oxycodone and dilaudid in one month?
can a pain mgmt doctor write both dilaudid and oxycodone in one month; i have a real serious issue with my doc who has never given a suggestion or helped me change my meds around a bit every six months to a year to avoid tolerance to one; i find out he USED TO BE a pill mill doctor, and really doesnt give a crap, but he does follow the law a bit more. ## All drs have to follow the law closely now. You can receive a prescription for dilaudid and oxycodone in one month. But, it does depend on how you're suppose to take them. If you have concerns about this dr, you need to change. ## thanks; the thing was he changed me to dilaudid from oxy; i got really sick from it the first week, and went back to the office (charged me again) to get the partial for the oxy for 3 weeks, and he said HE...

Baby and glycomet
My baby who is 2years old put his mouth Glycomet 500 tablet and after we took it back .Is there any effect to my baby ## Hello, Pavithra! How is your son? Did he get any of the tablet? I mean, did it start to dissolve, at all? Was the tablet wet, when you got it off of him? If it didn't really dissolve, then he likely didn't get much of the medication, if any, but it would be best to have his doctor check him out, to be sure.

Hey we'll I just wanted to let everyone know that I haven't had my period for like ages I don't remember but I am curious what to do accept go to the doctors and check what's wrong with me and yeah I've missed my period and I'm on the jadelle ## Hello, Te! How are you? Some women don't have periods while on the Jadelle implant. Have you had yourself checked for pregnancy? It's very doubtful that you are, you're most likely just skipping due to the hormone in the Jadelle.

tedral use as a child
I used Tedral and Tedral SA as a child. In fact I overused and became addicted so much that I would be using 3 SA a night along with 6 or more tedral throughout the day with Ventilon. I only managed to get off them when I became a speed addict. I have been clean and relapsed a few times over the years but was a heavy drinker. Now sober I have trouble concentrating, sitting still, ect....and I think I have ADHD which I probably always had but through Tedral and speed, anti depressants it's been controlled to one degree or another. I now have real problems at work at home and I have now an methods addiction. When I take it I feel calm. Am I self medicating to control my ADHD I believe so.

ZYD oxycodone
if, for one moment your belief is that KVK is of poor quality- AVOID 10 MG ZYD Oxycodone AT ALL COSTS. What I have figured out at this point.. is that if you have deep pockets- I mean deep pockets like in Industry (acting/movie) deep(you can afford the real stuff- the good, unadulterated- prooer filler Rx), the s*** we have to put up with is forever changing, getting cheaper and less effective all the time- "to keep the costs down for you, the consumer".. BULL S***! - makes the Pharmacy more $$$$ and because we cannot afford the real thing. The FDA has been cut back so far, not only do they not really care, but they are understaffed and concerning themselves with white paint as an additive in creamer taking precedence over a few dissatisfied junkies (no insult intended)..

Avoiding Seroquel drug interactions
My Mum is diagnosed Parkinsons Dimentia or Lewy Body Dementia. She has been prescribed and has been taking low dose Seroquel (25mg) which dose has been dropped to 12.5mg approx 6 weeks ago. The drugs Mum is on aren't working for her (she is very sensitive to Benzo lines and other drugs) and I'm discussing with her Doctor the feasibility of switching to cholinesterase inhibitor drugs instead. Rivastignmine (Exelon) is one of those drugs but I note it does moderately interact with Seroquel. As Mum is incredibly sensitive to drugs and their effects, I'd rather Mum be completely off Seroquel before commencing something such as Rivastignmine. What period of time would be a safe duration to suggest that the Seroquel would no longer be in her system? ## Approximately 36 hours, but ...
