tendons curling up and antibiotics
I have been prescribed antibiotics frequently by doctors. I frequently have infections related to bacterial infections and have noticed something strange slowly occurring. It started in my right leg then the left knee. I can't straighten either leg. Tingling and then it felt like a ball under my skin. My hands are showing hard clumps. Two PCPs have told me it is my tendons. Pain numbness the curling up of tendons are the symptoms. Is this from the heavy use of antibiotics?

Severe shoulder pain
Pain is so severe can't function ## Hi Lori, I'm so sorry to hear about the severe shoulder pain you're dealing with. I sincerely hope that you've been able to find appropriate medical care to help with the healing process. What kind of accident might've caused this to happen? And have you had any sort of diagnosis done to see if something could be broken or fractured?

cloanxit 2 clonazepam
I received Rivotril ( I never heard that name used for clonazepam before) today -4/14/14). The expiration date is 5/2013 and one of the pills in the blistered pack was opened. Are they safe to use? ## Dear GingerMarie, I wouldn't take them. They r expired and one is open? No way! I wouldn't take the chance. It's been almost a year that they expired. It's not safe. I would return them. ## Hi Ginger, I honestly don't think it would be a good idea to take anything that has already been opened, regardless of whether it's expired or not. If the blister packs have already been opened and/or tampered with, that should be an immediate red flag that something isn't necessarily right. But what gets me about these pharmacies, is that they usually don't let you take ...

blue round tablet with s l 100 and a capital m on the other side
What is a blue round tablet with s l 100 and a capital m on the other side? Is it real? ## Hello, Otis! How are you? I'm not sure what you mean by asking if it's real? Can you please clarify? And as to what it is, I can't find a listing for any tablet matching this description with the SL 100 on one side and M on the other. Can you please double check the imprint and post back? Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## Thanks for the response. I bought it as generic SILDENAFIL from a Canadian pharmacy but it appears not to work. ## Could u tell me what type of tablet is sl 100 with capital m on the back of it pls

white square pill 10 on one side m other
Is this pill for add patients or adhd patients. I was taking the small blue pill with 10 on it. It yave me energy an the pharmasit gave me the white square one this time cause he didnt have the other an it makes me sleepy tired an cant concentrait. What can i do!!!! ## I also notice a difference. Not as effective, shorter acting, and since you said it; there is a degree of being tired. Perhaps this formula contains less active ingredient. The pharmaceutical industry has a margin of error. +/- differential of 40% Meaning you may get 8 mg to 12 mg depending on the manufacture But in all honesty these things remind me of the shape with the same logo that was used following a car accident a long time ago. Maybe it truly is sedative and the pharmaceutical distributor messed up big time??

Need Doctor. West Subs of Chicago That Will Prescribe Pain Meds
I live in near Aurora, IL. west suburbs of Chicago PLEASE SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW A DR. AROUND AURORA, IL OR W/IN 10 MILES OR SO THAT WILL PRESCRIBE THE PAIN MEDS I NEED. I'VE TRIED AT LEAST 7 OR 8 DIFFERENT MEDS. THE NORCO10'S OR EVEN STRONGER (FEWER PER DAY) WORK PERFECT, NO SIDE EFFECTS. I'VE TRIED ALL THE OTHER NON NARCOTIC AND THEY DO NOT WORK OR I FEEL LIKE A WACK FROM DRUGS LIKE LYRICA. I don't want to be treated like some drug addict...JUST LOOK AT THE MRI FROM LAST WEEK. ## The plethora of posts really wasn't necessary and, if you type in all caps online, it is equivalent to shouting and you won't get many responses. Now, as to your situation. One difficulty you may be creating for yourself is by trying to insist on a certain narcotic medication. Many doctor...

pristiq for depression and anxiety did not work
My Son went to the Dr. for anxiety and depression, pristiq created more problems for him, panic attacks, insomnia, loss of appetite and he had black outs, got into some legal trouble and says he does not remember anything about that night. Anyone else had this type of problem? ## I was first prescribed 50 mg and now have been raised to 100 mg of Pristiq a day and 60 mg of Buspar for anxiety and depression. I have noticed that I have been getting irritated and grouchy more often while on the medicine. I have been on for about 3 months now and have set up an appointment to discuss this with my doctor. Not happy at all with this combination. I also had a loss in appetite, but no blackouts. ## had a severe seizure while on pristiq, had been taking the medication for about a year. I was gett...

Side effects of suboxone
I have been on suboxone now for just under a month. I think it is an amazing drug, i have had no cravings or interest in returning to opiates, my drug of choice was oxy. I get up every day feeling happy, and am able to take on what ever the day brings me. I am also on lexapro for depression at this time. There is one problem after i take my dose, which is 8 mg. twice a day, I am extremely tired sometimes to the point where if i sit down I will nod off, so I keep moving and can usually fight through it. I am wondering do other people feel this way or does it get better the longer you are on it? Two other things that are sometimes very bothersome are dizzyness and extreme dry mouth. I just wanted to find out other peoples experiences. Thanx ## Hey yea I get the same nod as you, it starts ...

oxycodone 30mg oval blue pills with #224 imprint don't relieve pain.
Don't accept generic oxycodone 30mg oval blue pill with #224 imprint, they don't relieve pain like the oval blue oxycodone 30mg pills with a M imprint. ## Hello! I am very sorry that these tablets didn't work for you. However, I wonder if you may be incorrectly remembering what you've previously taken? The M logo is used by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and they do not have any oval Oxycodone tablets on the U.S. market. Is it possible that you were taking something different? ## Sorry I also meant to say that it has nothing to do with her building up a tolerance because she had a couple non caraco's left over from her last prescription and they worked perfectly fine. ## the first half of my post didn't get posted for some reason but what I said was that my girlfri...

Sorry about the pain that you're in, that's awful! Have you tried Fentanyl? It's a very potent narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine and it's available in a patch that is time released and worn for either 2 or 3 days, depending on the severity of pain.

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...
