Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Missed a day
This is my third month taking sprintec. I completely overlooked taking the pill last Saturday and didn't realize until today when I took the pack out of the holder entirely. I've taken every pill at the same time except for last Saturday's. I therefore took two today. Should I be worried that skipping a pill and catching up today caused ovulation? ## Yes, there is a risk of that, though only a slight one. You can use backup protection for the next 7 days, until you've made sure to take a pill each day, without missing any, so you'd be sure they are preventing ovulation, again. Otherwise, the only thing you can really do is wait and see if you start your period, when it's due. Oral OCs may also cause side effects, such as irregular bleeding, headache, irritability...

being drugged
I found out my boyfriend has been putting these pills in my drinks. Why? I noticed a bitter taste when drinking or eating stuff, and finally found one stuck to a piece of ice. ## I believe they are muscle relaxers ## Hello, Heidi! How are you doing? I am very sorry about what's been happening to you. However, what pills has he been putting in your drinks? You didn't list a specific medication or pill description. Nor did you place this in any particular pill forum. Can you please post back with more details, so I can help you? Thanks! As to your boyfriend, if he's really doing this, I'd be very cautious about trusting him and you should know that this is illegal. It could be very dangerous. ## I checked the pill and the number on it and looked it up. Says the are colonop...

D-03 Cream Capsule/ Gabapentin 300mg
The cream colored capsule with D 03 on it is a 300mg gabapentin. It is mostly used for the treatment of nerve pain as well as a mood stabilizer. I also have found when you are trying to come off of opiates, the gabapentin helps with the withdrawal. It is not a solution, however, taking the gabapentin for a couple days vrs relapsing or getting on suboxone or methadone, is better on your body in the end. Since it is a mood stabilizer as well it helps with sleep, the anxiety, and pains that come with withdrawal. I have used this in my own personal experience and it was a life saver. I believe that if you work the program suboxone can work too, it just is expensive and not everyone has the cash to do it. I don't like to rely on any medicines but I take this over pain pills or barbiturat...

I don't wanna turn to street drugs!! :( can anyone help ASAP?! Thanks ## Hello Court! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see specialists. A PCP will not be able to prescribe them for you. There are also limits on how many they can prescribe, so your m...

There are mandatory manufacturing limits to help keep better track of the supply and once a company reaches that limit, they can not manufacture anymore, until the new year.

Getting painful Ulcers from the Sub. Film, any other option?
There must be a chemical in the films that causes painful ulcers around the bottom of my tongue, when I take the film now it burns so bad I cannot tolerate it. Are there other options or other ways to take it thats proven, please..no BS, ok. ## Hello, Frank! How are you? There are pills available, as both generics and name brand Suboxone. You might want to speak to your doctor about designating that you receive tablets on your prescription. It would be best to let your doctor see the sores in your mouth, so they know what's wrong. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Quantity Changed. After 7 years
Since 1-2007 I have been taken 10mg lortab--180 monthly. Quantity received this month were 10mg lortab--140 monthly. Very upset! My health has not improved. Actually there are times where pain meds do not do the job. Mostly when it rains or when it's cold outside. My doctor is aware of this. I finally informed her. This has been months ago, so thinking this has nothing to do with lower quantity. Having been afraid to complain about periodical pain increases. Figure doctor would take me off meds. I have tried to adjust to dose, but this is just stressing me out. Which causes my fibromyalgia to flair worse, More pain.... My tests have always been fine. No illegal or non-written drugs in system. Do not know what to do, or where I stand.??? ## Hello, Sallie06! How are you? I'm very ...

I am living w my dad in Mesa,but will go metro phoenix. I am not a drug user or abuser. Given script before left Chgo,1mg tid and its out,no refills. Hard to handle this and klonopin helped so much. ## Hello, Gary! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you're going through and wish the best to you and your family. As to the Klonopin, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, a PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you. You'll need to see a specialist. The easiest thing to do will most likely be to set yourself up with a new PCP there and then have them refer you to someo...

Need Dr. in KY for Fioricet prescription
I live in the Richmond Ky area. Just moved here a few years ago and since I cannot get fioricet online anymore for my headaches and fibromyalgia pain, am having extreme trouble finding a dr willing to prescribe. Does anyone have a dr willing to prescribe it anywhere in the Lexington, Richmond or Irvine area? I have no life dealing with the pain without them. ## Hello, SuzyQ! How are you? Well, it does contain the barbiturate Butalbital, which has sometimes been abused, so this medication is usually only prescribed as a last resort, when other options have failed. Additionally, if you go to a doctor and ask for a specific medication, they are taught to see that as being drug seeking behavior, so they will always be very reluctant to prescribe it. This medication may cause side effects, s...

How long does it take to feel better after getting off Warfarin
I was on Warfarin for almost 6 months due to a DVT and stage 4 endometriosis. I have been off Warfarin for about 6 days. My leg still hurts and I am concerned that the clot may still be there. While on Warfarin I had arm and chest pain, leg pains, fatigue, etc. I just wondered if these symptoms will go away soon since I am no longer on the drug. ## Hello, Sam! How are you feeling? Have things improved, yet? Yes, they should go away, but it may take a couple weeks, before you really feel back to normal. Many people experience those issues while taking these types of medications and quite a few have had to switch to something else. As to the clot, have you had that checked out to see? Has the chest pain been checked out? Since you've had a clot, that is nothing to play around with, it...

Adult ADD - will Intuniv help? Can't take stimulant due to job
I am 32 years old I was taking short acting adderall, my new job does drug panels and I did not disclose I have ADD. My Dr. said Straterra does come back positive for amphetamines so that is out.

My job requires great attention to detail in high stress conditions. ## Intuniv works quite well for some people. It's just the the stuff you read online is almost always going to be from those that have had a problem with a medication, the others that take it whom it works well for don't have a need to go online and find a site to look up information. It contains the active ingredient Guanfacine...
