trying to add weight
I have lost more than half of my body weight in the past 5yrs. I find it very easy to loose weight and vextremely hard to add weight. People have been suggesting lots of things like malt and milk but recently a friend told me about WATE ON and I'm just concerned is it healthy? What can I take that has no side effect? ## Hello, Dewumi! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, the most important question I have is, have you consulted your physician? That type of severe weight loss could signify a dangerous health condition that needs medical treatment. Are you on any medications? What types of foods do you eat? ## Well I don't think its anything medically related, it just happened as a result of stress and all. I didn't loose the we...

Mine is great, and I think he has a few openings. ## i am needing to find a suboxone doc in okc area that takes insurance. Any suggestions? ## I DO!! ## I need to find a suboxine dr in wisconsin. ## I'm in atlanta and uninsured. The most affordable suboxone doc I've found charges $250 per month just to write the script (cash only, of course!) and then I pay anywhere from $6-8 per pill. I don't want to go back onto methadone for countless reasons, but it is cheaper and may be my only option. If anyone in/around Atlanta knows a doctor who really wants to help and not just exploit desperate people, please let me know! ## I am a 40 yr old disab...

i need a doctor who will give me methdone 10mg in raleigh nc
My son has chronic pain in his Rt.shoulder. Methodone 10mg. three x a day was percribed for him. His doctor Rudolph J. Myers retired, and now he's in need to find an another Physician who will continue to percribed the same medication for him. He lives in Raleigh N.C. ## Hello, Mike! How are you and your son? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if such a medication is required on a long-term ongoing basis for the management of chronic pain, he'll need to see a pain management specialist. A PCP can no longer prescribe like that. 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. However, there is no listing of doctors that I can refer to f...

Finding A good Pain Doctor in the VA DC MD area. That will help you out.
Looking for a good pain Doctor that will prescribe Oxycodone. Its so hard working two jobs with no insurance, and trying to go to school as well to get my degree. I work for a moving company and install computers all day long. Always in pain Looking for A GOOD PAIN DOCTOR!!! WHO WILL PRESCRIBE OXYCODONE!! PLEASE HELP Preferably in the Northern Virginia AREA!!! ## There is really no way we could possibly have information on what a doctor will prescribe for you. In addition, going in and asking for a specific medication gives a doctor the impression that you are a drug seeker. In these cases, it is always best to let your medical records speak for themselves. In the D.C. Metro area, it is also very hard to find places that will do this, at all. I lived there for awhile and I know first ha...

Does Anyone Know Where To Find The Sandoz Adderall In Bay Area
I take 30 mg Adderall Ir and sandoz is the only brand that doesn't give me nausea. I don't know what's going on with the pharmaceutical companies but it's really had an affect on my life. I had to withdraw from nursing school because a drug company changed the formula and I felt like I was going crazy. ## There is something going on with the formula. I've been working on it all weekend. I will get more specific information to you when I get it gathered. It seems like the 'PINK' pill is the problem. I've never taken Adderall, but I knew something was wrong. However I can assure you that you are NOT going crazy. There are so many of ADDers/ADHDers that are picking up on this problem. Even many people that have never taken it before. I am starting to think t...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
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 ...

ebast m and allegra 120mg
im using allegra tablet for my allergy condition. some days before i had chest infection nd i went to a diffrent doctor . i told him im an allergy patient. along with the antibiotics for chest infection he prescribed ebast m tablets. i know ebast m tablets are also used for allergic conditions. i followed his medicine for 10 days. now ma chest infection is gone. but allergy is still there. can i continue my old medicine allergra 120? does using both the medicines which are meant for the same disease, one after the other cause any problems? ??! ## Hello, Tinku! How are you? It doesn't make much sense to take 2 medications to treat the same problem, in this case, especially if the one isn't working for you. It would probably be better to just go back to taking your Allegra, unless...

Side effects of SUMO tablet
I used Sumo tablet because I had high fever. I got a sever reaction from taking Sumo, because it contains Nemosalide. I go steven jhonson syndrome, so got ulcers inside mouth and throat. Use of Nemosalide is banned in Euope as well as in US, because it can cause sever reactions. Especially for children nemosalide has a damaging effect on liver. ## Hello, Nic! How are you? I am so very sorry about what happened to you! How are you doing, now? That's a very dangerous reaction to develop, it's fantastic that you survived it.

After one course of antibiotics and still a lot of shortness of breath, I have resumed a second course of antibiotics and starting to feel better. My question is can I stop the steriods when I fetel better. .as I am concerned about the length that im supposed to be on them..suppressed immunity etc and am I likely to get side effects at that dose and time length? ## Hello, Karen! How are you? No, you need to continue them and do the proper taper schedule, unless your doctor tells you otherwise. There can be risks associated with stopping it too suddenly, after having taken it for awhile. The immune suppression and other...

betamox 250
I m coughing up a lot of mucus and a wheezing sound in my throat so the pharmicist gave me betamox250 but a week later I'm still struggling with coughing and mucus coming out ## Hello, Rudy! How are you feeling? Has it gotten any better, yet? You may have an allergy, which would require some type of antihistamine, that could also explain why the antibiotic didn't help. Have you eaten anything different? Do you have any other allergies that you know of?

Can Betamox be used for insect bites
an insect bit me on the leg. i do not know what kind of insect it was. the sister at the clinic gave me betamox 500mg tablets and allergex cream. is it safe to use? ## Hello, Dee! How are you? Betamox contains the active ingredient Amoxicillin, which is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections. Since you don't know what kind of insect it was, that's most likely why you were told to take this, to prevent infection. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

side effects of coxflam
I started with Coxflam, described by my doctor, this morning for pain in my hip. Tonight I discover that my face and neck is red and felt swollen. I also have a head acke. I am on cronic medicine for high blood presure. Is this symptoms from the Coxflam? ## Hello, Purdy! How are you? The Coxflam contains Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and this class of medications is usually contraindicated with chronic high blood pressure, because it can cause blood pressure elevations. Was it prescribed by the same doctor that treats for you for your hypertension?

No, these are just antibiotics that are used to treat or prevent bacterial infections and they shouldn't be taken, unless your doctor confirms the presence of infections and tells you that one is needed. How long have you been trying to get pregnant? Are you menstrual cycles regular? Are you on any other medications? How old are you?
