Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

Stomach damage?
Taken 50mg/day for 2 years with 20mg ameprozol. Last 2 months suffered the faintest tummy ache but it is persistent. Advised to take 40mg Ameprazol by one doctor and to replace with codeine by another. On either paracetamol or codeine after 4 days without diclofenac severe pain and joint stiffness returns. Seems life quality is dependent on Diclofenac so would it be safe to return to using it with the higher ameprozol dose? I've heard of one patient thing 60mg!

prednisolone tapering down from 10 mg in exfoliative dermatitis
My Father (age 80 yrs) was put on wysolone 10 mg for 1 month for exfoliative dermatitis (erythroderma). His skin colour returned to normal in 1 month but due to reduced albumin levels, hie edema still persisted. Dr advised him to reduce the dosage to 5 mg for 10 days...and then 5 mg alternate days. Within 5-6 days of reducing to 5 mg, the redness returned, and edema reappeared on his face, elbows etc. He continued with the 5 mg for 2 more days, and the flare up has begun to subside. Now he need to taper down the dose further. Will it be a better idea to make it 5 mg and 2.5 mg on alternate days instead of 5 and 0? And then 2.5 and 0...to finally 0? I am worried if he goes without the 5 mg on alternate days, the flare up will happen again

Tapering off from 10mg?
I have been on Prednisone for 3 months, taking 10mg a day. It was not for a pain condition, but rather to aid and support pregnancy. Now that I am 12 weeks pregnant, they are tapering me off. I am to go from 10mg to 5mg for a week, then 2.5mg for a week, then cease. I have been reading up on tapering and a LOT of people refer to dropping 1mg at certain intervals. Is going to 5mg then 2.5mg too fast? I'm unsure whether other people who are dropping 1mg do so because they were on a higher dose initially, but I did wonder..... Obviously i do not want to go into adrenal shock, particularly with the pregnanct. But I am also desperate to get off the Prednisone as well and have been counting the days to start tapering down. ## Yes, it really depends on how high of a dose you were on and fo...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
ive been given fentanyl 50mg pain patches an i was just wondering if its okay to cut one in half an chew on it? ## I would say definitely NOT - The Fentanyl transdermal patch is supposed to be absorbed by the body gradually. If you were to chew on it you would be taking a very dangerous risk - this is a very strong medication! Chewing on it would essentially release 3 days worth of of a narcotic into your body which is more powerful than morphine! Please post back with any other thoughts you have about this and please be safe! ## Obviously, chewing the patch is unsafe, but again...people are going to chew them. You can chew em as long as you take only small portions at a time. Just moderate yourself and don't overdue it. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 TIMES mo...

Nurokind Plus Side Effects
i AM SUFFERING A VASCULAR LEG PAIN NEAR KNEE AND DOCTOR ADVISED ME TO USE NEUROKIND LC TWICE A DAY.iS THERE ANY KIND OF SIDE EFFECT OF THIS MEDICINE.. ## Nurokind contains the active ingredient Methylcobalamin, which is a form of Vitamin B12, so it is actually a nutritional supplement. It is often recommended for people that suffer from some type of nerve pain, because a lack in this vital nutrient can cause or contribute to the problem. However, as a supplement, the side effect profiles for it have not been studied, as is done for prescription medications. Some people have reported nausea, after taking it. Are there any other questions? ## my mother aged 62 was operated for TB spine (dorsal spine). she is on nurokind LC twice daily for the past 1 month and got good relief from the neur...

difference between 30mg oxycodone and oxycontin
I keep searching and STILL don¨t have a straight answer. I am currently on 30mg, 3 times a day of OXYCODONE (legally prescribed) for horrific back pain..... ¿WHAT is the difference between the 2, if any, besides the NAME? oxycodone AND oxycontin........ PLEASE help me out! thanks! thanks!! ## Its the same drug - Oxycodone. One is time released (Oxycontin) and one is immediate release (oxycodone). If they changed your meds from Oxycodone 30mg 3xper day (total of 90mg a day) to Ocycontin it would be probably be 40mg 2x a day with breakthrough meds. ## Pita's comment is basically true. Though OxyContin is technically oxycodone hydrochloride - a slightly different formula, but yes -- essentially the same drug. The major difference is the time-released delivery of OxyContin as ...

doctors who prescribe adderall in michigan
My son is 22 is adhd and we can't find a docoor to give it to him ## Hello, Jayne! How are you? Adderall is a controlled substance that has addictive potential, so if you're contacting doctors and asking them to prescribe it, they are going view that as being drug seeking behavior and refuse. What he really needs to do is set up an appointment with a doctor to discuss his issues, get a proper diagnosis and see what they offer as his treatment options. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Jayne ,I don't know if you found a Dr to give it to your son yet but my Dr will write them but I DON'T want to put that info out here so if you still need a Dr, give me your email and I will email you the Drs info ## whats your email mine is for adderall ## Tony, what's your...

papase
what is the generic name, indication and the dosage. ## what is the generic name, indication and the dosage of papase drug?. ## Papase is not a drug, it is a natural digestive enzyme sold as a supplement. It is touted to help with gas, digestion and stomach fullness. I'm sorry, that is all the information I can find on it. Does anyone else know anything? ## PAPASE IS A DRUG. Its main pharmacological action is to reduce severe swollen gums. Other uses are known, but seldomly used compared its main preferance. Known side effects include gastric disorder, trembling (differs from person to person) and uncomfortable. ## Perhaps you should say, its agitation instead of uncomfortable.

Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg
i have new pesription and my dr. wants me to try opana 10mg. is this drug stonger and how much stonger than my last drug oxycodone 30mg.. ## The Oxymorphone in Opana is stronger than Oxycodone, but you aren't on an equivalent dose, it would take 15mgs of it to equal each 30mg dose of the Oxycodone. Learn more Opana details here. So, in reality, it's twice as strong, but you may not get as much pain relief, since you aren't on an equivalent dosage. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I have severe Venous insufficiency,anxiety disorder,cirrhossis,osteoarthitis ,severe fractered leg, sixth cranial nerve palsey ,legs are black and necrotic,spleen very enlarged , anvanced hep c,plates left arm old injury , insomonia ,ptsd,inopperable dueto such low platleat count 35,000...

Suprep
Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...
