expired pills is it safe to take
last year i broke out in hives so the dr. proscribed hydroxyzine hcl 25 mg. . I broke out in hives again wanted to take the pills but they expired in march 2012 is it bad if i take them . ## Hi Peggy, According to Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. But the question is whether the drug you have kept happens to be one of these drugs from the study... (I have...

is it safe and effective to take a 2 year expired 20 MG Celexa
Is it safe and effective to take Celexa 20 if it ha been expired for 2 years? ## Hello, Colleeb! How are you? This medication degrades over time and thus loses effectiveness. It would be best to simply dispose of what you have left and see your doctor for a new prescription. This is an SSRI antidepressant and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, weight changes and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Most all drugs are still quite effective even after 5 years. This to say maybe if the drugs were in airtight containers and a dry environment.

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...

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
my Dr prescribed Opana 40mg as alternative to Oxy 80 mg 2 twice a day which I would insufflate - I didn't tell him this of course. he claimed them to be just as good if not stronger can any one share about opana 40mg ## Inhaling medications that are not intended for that method of usage is very dangerous. You run the risk of overdose and creating blockages in your lungs, which can lead to breathing problems, embolisms and stroke. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, this is a potent narcotic pain reliever. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. THis dosage is about the same as what you were taking of the Oxycontin. Do you have any other questions? ## i was taking three oc 40's a day, when the new op 40's came out they seemed to...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Oxycontin OP 60 mg vs Oxymorphone ER
Just switched over from oxy 30mg instant release 6x daily to oxycontin 60mg with 2 30mg IR for breakthrough. Been on this for a long time. I find that I'm very disappointed with the oxycontin 60 it seems to only last 5 hours at the most and I have many breakthrough pains during that period of time. I've heard of oxymorphone ER and want to know if this would be better for me due to opioid tolerance. If anybody can give me opinions on this please do. Thanks. ## First off, the 30mg that you're taking cannot be instant release tablets, the instant release is only available in a 5mg capsule. If you're taking 30mg tablets, then they have to be the regular release formulation, which is a generic for Roxicodone. Learn more Roxicodone details here. And the Oxycontin just doesn...

how long does it approximately take for musel and joint pain to go away caused by finofibrate 130 mg
I have severe muscle pain and joint pain in elbows,legs,shoulders,lower back . Been taking it for about a year. Feels like same symptoms I once had when I found out I was allergic to statins. But it was so long ago I don't remember how long before pain stopped. ## Hello, Turridu! How are you? If you were on it for about a year, it might take several weeks for these side effects to taper off and go away. If they continue after about a month of being off of it, then you should consult your doctor as there may be something else going on. Other side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness and headache. How are you feeling, now? ## Still sore but not half as bad, I have been drinking lots of water and eating fruits and veggies trying to purge the meds from my system don...

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
I don't have a question but do have a few thoughts about Vyvanse. I noticed that in the official Vyvanse drug info that Vyvanse was being considered in the treatment of Major Depression Disorder. I have struggled with Bipolar ll for many years with Seasonal Pattern, ie I have extreme depression in the winter and hypomania in the summer. My depressions generally havetreatment resistant and I have been hospitalized several times. A couple of times only ECTs could break my depressions. There have been times when depression threatened my life because it was so unbearable. A couple times ECT's was the only effective treatment. Last winter (2010-2011), I didn't bother with seeking hospitalization but strongly felt that I could not deal with another bout of such debilitating depres...

Scared to try Klonopin.
I just got prescribed Klonopin, which I was on when I was 13 (now almost 23), but ever since having my Son, all the medications that I used to take no longer work. I have a severe panic disorder, along with agorophobia. I don't ever leave my house, and I am constantly panicing. They have tried to put me on nortripilyn, but I haven't been able to get myself to take it yet... So we are trying Klonopin 1mg to see if it will calm me enough where I can start on an antidepresant and get back in psycho therapy. But, I am terrified of the side effects. I'm scared that it will make me feel drugged, or make me sick to my stomach! Can someone please tell me the chances of this happening? ## I'm on 0.5 for the same thing and sometime take 1 mg. No problem. I hate medications but thi...
