side effects of insomulex
Hi I want to no can I take insomulex with my blood pressure med. telmisartan 40mg but I take half of one because the 40mg is to strength for ## Hello, Vera! How are you? I'm sorry, but since the Insomulex is a homeopathic product, it has not been evaluated for interactions with actual prescription drugs. The best suggest I can make is to check with your doctor or pharmacist, they may know more about it from others that have taken it. I do know, however, the insomnia can cause blood pressure and cardiac issues, so it may be preferable for you to get it under control for the betterment of your overall health. What are your normal blood pressure levels?

Extreme Salty Taste in Mouth for 20 days!
I'm a 51 yr. old female who woke up on April 7, 2011, with an extremely salty taste in my mouth. When I tried to drink water to wash it out, it was like drinking salt gargle water. Nothing I eat or drink makes it go away. I can't stand to put anything in my mouth that is salty because the salt taste already in my mouth makes it almost unswallowable. Prior to that day, I have only 2 regular medications that I take daily: Lisinopril 40 mg( increased from 20 mg in mid November) for high BPas well as HCTZ 25 mg(been taking Lisinopril for 8 years) and 1mg of ropinorole(generic for Requip) for RLS (taking for almost 6 years). I also take black cohosh twice a day for hot flashes and night sweats(last menstrual cycle was Sept. 2010). On March 18, I started taking a 10 day prescription f...

prescribe adderall in langhorne pa
Can you plz tell me a doc in langhorne,Levittown,Holland area in pa that will prescribe adderall? My primary thinks I need it and I'm having difficulty finding someone ## Hello, Tiffany! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Why doesn't your primary just refer you another doctor? And some important advice, when calling specialists, is to not ask them about prescribing it, because they will view that as being drug seeking behavior. You need to actually set up an appointment, then discuss your treatment options. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, anorexia ...

drs in avondale who will prescribe my maintenance meds
I just moved here from fla 3 months ago. I have no Dr or insurance right now. How can I get my maintenance meds. Valsartan and Levothyroxine. Thanks John ## Hello, John! How are you? Those aren't controlled substances, so a doctor shouldn't have a problem prescribing them, if you're paying cash. What state you in? There is more than one Avondale in the U.S. and knowing the state would enable someone to recommend a doctor in your area, if they know of one. ## Thank you. I'm in Avondale Arizona.

The reason I am asking is because if you're calling various doctor's offices and asking if they'll treat you and prescribe specific medications, then you will pretty much always get told no. When someone does that, doctor's and their staff are taught to see it as drug seeking behavi...

Coming off suboxone...
My question is I have taken suboxone for awhile now and for the past few months I've been tapering off of them I'm to the point of where about a 4mg strip will last for probably around 10 days. My question is that even enough to be helping me or is it all just in my head? I'm just wondering because I'm quitting one way or the other just want to know if the withdraws will be as bad as others because of my low doses or if anyone else has tryed it this way.. All help is appreciated thanks...

purple pill e415
is it ok to drive after taking it ## When it comes to driving after taking any medication, it should be based on how the medication affects you. Thus, it's best not to drive the first couple of times you take it, in case it causes dizziness, drowsiness or sedation. However, after you have more experience with the medication, you'll be able to judge how it affects you and how safe it is for you to drive. Is there anything else I can help with?

Folbic working or not?
My doctor recently prescribed Folbic for my vitamin deficiency. How do I know its working and can I also supplement with additional b vitamins? ## Hello, Mark! How are you doing? You should see an improvement in whatever symptoms caused your doctor to check for it, if it's working. And no, it would not be advisable to add more B vitamins, because getting to much of some of them can also be dangerous. Is there anything else I can help with?

Antiobiotic or Tooth Infection Not Working
Tooth Pain/Root Canal/Crown/Antibiotics Not Working/Severe Pain Just over a year ago I had a root canal and a crown on the same tooth. On and off when I would floss there was a little blood and the crown felt a little 'off.' But I had no problem chewing. Now these many months later out of nowhere-I wake in severe pain in THAT area. Anything bothers it. I mean anything. I'm in severe pain. I know pain as I am a patient with spine issues. Anyway I try to wait it out to see if it's temporary, I was afterall raised this way but after two, then three days, I can't take it anymore and the Orajel is NOT doing its thing. I call the dentist. Gets me in pretty quick. Thank you! Xrays taken, takes a look, cannot see anything. Prescribes antibiotics. After two and a half days, t...

white oblong pill ip 109 vicodin
Can 500mg Tylenol be taken in between IP 109 tablets? The IP 109 tablets are taken once in the morning and once in the evening, but does not seem to be enough for that back pain. I want to take the 500mg Tylenol tablet in the mid-afternoon. ## HI, Simon! How are you feeling? I'd suggest checking with your doctor, before adding additional Acetaminophen. The Vicodin tablets that you're taking already contain 325mgs of it in each dose and too much of it in a day carries the risk of being fatally toxic. Plus, long-term use of high amounts could cause liver damage and/or failure. Learn more Vicodin details here. It may be safe for you to do so, since you only take 2 of the Vicodin a day, but it's always best to ask your doctor to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with? #...

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...

anxiety medications that won cause drowsiness
my question is I was on lorazapan for anxiety but the drowsiness got me in trouble is their any anxiety medication that won't cause drowsiness. I told my Dr. not to prescribe it for me anymore. My question is, I need something, is their anything else I can take. ## Hello, Eileen! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you've had. You may do better with one of the SSRI antidepressants that can be used to treat anxiety, such as Prozac or Zoloft. They've both been successful at helping many people with anxiety, but since you take them all the time, your body gets used to the medications and the side effects, such as drowsiness, wear off after a few weeks. Other side effects may include nausea, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

methadone and klonopin
So if I take a 1mg clonazepam and 10mg methadone will anything happen??? I takea lot of pills but this is the first time I mixed these 2 ## Hello, Breezy! How are you? It is not advisable that you mix them, unless your doctor has prescribed them and stated that it's safe for you to do so. Both of these medications can cause depression of the central nervous system, which could cause dangerously lowered heart rate, blood pressure and shallow breathing. Both also carry the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with?
