pot cl micro tab 20meq er pill
what is this pill going to do to your system is it good to take before going to bed I take it 4 times a day any infor will help thanks john ## Hello, John! How are you? This is a high potency potassium supplement that's prescribed when someone's level has fallen dangerously low or if they are on medications that may cause it to fall dangerously low. Its most prominent side effect is stomach irritation, so it should be taken with food. It would also be best not to lay down within a half hour or so of taking it, so it should be taken awhile before going to bed. Are there any other questions or concerns?

How many days before I feel the effects of Clonazepam working in my body begin to work
I have been prescribed Clonazepam for anxiety. I am to take it three times per day, one tablet at night about 30 minutes before bed time, one tablet first thing in the morning (I wake up about 6:00 a.m.) and one tablet around mid-day (1:00-1:30 p.m.). I have been taking it since Monday but do not feel any effects (though I have slept better the past two nights). How long does it usually take before clonazepam is in my system and will give me day time relief from my anxiety? ## Hello, Pthomas! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. It should have had some immediate effect, this medication doesn't need to build up in your system to have its effect and can actually be taken as needed. If it's not helping you, you may need a higher dose or a different...

doctor that prescribe adderall,abilify and ambien?
i have adhd,bypolar and manic depressant and have mood swings ## Hello, Katie! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist, at least for the Adderall, since it is a controlled substance. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia. What is your general location? That information would make it easier for someone to recommend a good doctor in you area.

How long before Linzess starts to work?
I was prescribed Linzess for my IBS-C. I have been taking Linzess for two days now and very bloated with no bowel movement. From what I had read, it would work rather quickly, but for me that is not the case. I took one 145 mcg the first morning as directed and 2 of the 145 mcg the second morning and still nothing. How long does it usually take before I will start seeing results. I have the urge to have a bowel movement, but nothing is produced. Any advise will be appreciated. ## Hello, CJ! How are you doing? Has it worked, yet? There's really no way to give a time frame, it can vary from person to person. Some people have good luck with it, some don't. One person posted recently that it was only resting in one BM a week for them. Have you consulted your doctor for advice?

Hoping Viibryd will help
I have been on 40 mg of Viibryd for 2 weeks now. Dreams every night as well. Not all nightmares but quite a few. I am still struggling massively with depression and anxiety. Panic attacks. I severely hate having to go to public places. I have lots of trouble focusing driving too. And my temper is severely scary. I snap so fast. Scared where my life is headed. ## I'm still not right. I used to be so happy and outgoing. Now i panic having to go places. Any little thing that goes wrong or a sudden change in my routine just screws my head up. Then I cannot think. I wonder if Viibryd is right for me or should I ask about Prozac? Paxil was no help either. I just want my life back. Want to be happy again. I have noticed no help with my panic attacks either. ## Hello, Ace! How are you doing...

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...

how long will it take to return to normal
I have been taking Chantix for about a month now and decided tonight that I must stop. From day one I have been nauseated and increasingly depressed. I have a history of depression and anxiety - I have also began to notice that when I eat a lot of sugar, I get a rush of energy and then within an hour or so I feel terrible. Is it okay to just stop this medication and how long will it take to be out of my system? ## Hello, Pinky! How are you doing? It may take a week or two, before you start to feel back to normal. However, that reaction to eating a lot of sugar is normal and may continue. It's just not good for our bodies to overdo it. Is there anything else I can help with?
