Taking 150 mg Lyrica at night for arm radioculpathy due to c5, 6, 7 herniated discs in neck. Hard to type, sorry. Hands are week. Started med on Dec. 19 so on a little over a month. My nerve pain is better, arms are not falling asleep as much. Still have deep pain in discs. Live with it, but have been offered surgery. Idk, it seems surgery may not be a guaranteed Lots of belly bloat on Lyrica. I drink lots of lemons n limes in my water to flush out my body. I've noticed that when I don't eat, I'm not hungry, but when I start eating, I could eat a whole Thanksgiving Turkey myself! I'm staying very aware of portion control and how my body reacts. I take 1 Aleve 12 hr Arthritis Pill in am for the day. Good results. Use Lidocane Patches prn My whole life has cha...

Query regarding bp

Does repase h 50 mg increase systolic or decrease diastolic. ## Hello, Di! How are you? The FDA lists Repace H as containing Losartan and Hydrochlorothiazide. It is used to lower blood pressure and should be effective at lowering both numbers. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, dehydration and increased urination. Is there anything else I can help with?

hydrocod chlorphen

My Dr told me to start at one teaspoon a night before bed to help with my coughing all though the night with my cold. It has been one hour and I don't feel tired and I'm still coughing. Should I take an other half teaspoon or wait longer? ## Hello, Netta! How are you? No, you shouldn't raise your dosage, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic cough suppressant, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. If you aren't opiate tolerant, it can be very risky to try to adjust the dosage on your own. Is there anything else I can help with?

I was in an awful accident, and my doctor took me off pain med a few months ago. I have had a lot of pain and have been acting like I am healing. However, he took me off pain meds because he is not allowed to keep me on them for over three months. I manage day to day, but I am a single mother to a 9 year old boy. I could really use a pain pill in the morning and when he gets home from school. However, my doctor will not prescribe me anymore pain meds. ## Hello, Boo! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. If you require pain medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The DEA issued new directives last year that limit what your PCP can prescribe, how much they can prescribe and how long they can prescribe it. Have you t...

30mg morphine 2x daily for 45 days to suboxoneround orange p
1 Reply RSS
On 30 mg 2 x daily for 45 days. Took last 30 at 7pm yesterday. Is one orange AN415 for 4 days going to help me withdraw and stop opiates all together. I dont want this addiction anymore? ## Hello, Ginger! How are you doing? You can't take Suboxone, until you are in full withdrawal. Otherwise, it can throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals that could include grand mal seizures. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. And it is doubtful that just 4 days of it is going to be enough to completely beat this. Have you consulted your doctor? Unless you've been abusing the Morphine, you should be able to just taper off of it after ...

I need info on a small round pill with k over 77 on one side blank on other side ## Hello, Leroy! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by KVK Tech and they list it as containing 35mgs of Phendimetrazine. The FDA lists this as a stimulant that is used to help aid in weight loss. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?

Took this medication and made me throw up bad and gave me body aches and gave me rash I got for cellulitis for my arm I stopped taking it because it scared me. I am taking amox/clav by itself now and feel better. ## Hello, Diana! How are you? Yes, those sulfur based medications can cause bad side effects and allergic reactions in some people that take it. I had a bad experience with it myself. The FDA lists the typical side effects for the Amox/Clav as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Has your cellulitis improved?

raising cost of this med

My husband takes Hydroxychlor200mg twice a day for his RA. In Aug `14 his cost was $2.14. His refill for this month is $28.50. Why such a big increase???? ## Hello MT! How are you? The price can vary from month to month, depending on supply & demand, insurance coverage, what the pharmacies supplier is charging and etc. However, the only way to get a definitive answer would be to ask your pharmacist. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Hydroxychloroquine as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and loss of appetite. Has anyone else seen a sudden price increase for this medication?

This tablet is manufactured by Accord Healthcare and they list it as containing 1mg of Clonazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

I received lorcets ,10/500 ,which is a oval shape
1 Reply RSS
They're white in need to meke surr they are the right ones ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? What are the markings on them? That is what would enable me to identify them for you. However, you should be aware that the ones with 500mgs of Acetaminophen in them are no longer available on the U.S. market. The FDA classifies this mediation as 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.
