xanax worked, and then took it again and nothing.
Three weeks ago I flew out to ABQ. Flying is my worst fear (plus I have general anxiety.) I went to my doctor and got prescribed alprazolam .5mg. (I have been on klonopin and they do nothing for me.) anyway, on the flight out I took 1.5 mg and it was the best flight I've ever had! So on the way back, just today, I took the same amount and it did nothing. was still having panic attacks and i felt like it just made me a little irritable. What'sa goin' on?! ## Hello, Kelly! How are you? I am very sorry that it didn't work for you the second time. Sometimes, medications are just like that and there's really no way to explain it. The irritability can be a normal side effect of this medication, as well as headache, dizziness and mood swings. This medication also carries th...

switching an 87 yr old nursing home patient to tylenol 3 after 6 years of hydracodone use should i be concerned about withdrawal symptoms
Because Hydracodone has just changed to a Schedule II med, by father's doc is switching all patients to Tyl 3. My concern is that the switch is happening without weening down from hydracodone. Is it medically necessary to slowly go down on the hydracodone as he slowly goes up on Tyl 3? or can the switch happen in one dose? ## Hello, Gina! How are you? The Codeine in the Tylenol 3 is weaker than the Hydrocodone, so a rapid switch like that may result in some withdrawal and rebound effects, such as nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and rebound pain. To be equal to 10mgs of Hydrocodone, he'd need 66.67mgs of the Codeine. 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. ...

norco 80mgs daily and ambien 20mgs nightly along with 2400 mg ibuprofen daily tuned out to be a lethal combination for me i took the combo 5 days
Just an FYI. I woke up in the hospital on a respirator after my teenage son found me. This was not intentional. I developed pneumonia. Oh! I woke up deaf. I couldn't hear for two days. My kidneys failed and I was on dialysis for 8 weeks. My overall hospital stay was almost four weeks. My family noticed a marked difference in my personality. Two years later I'm finally more like myself. I still take my pain meds, I developed an allergy to ambien and was told to never take any kind of anti inflammatory again! IMO most OD's are combos. I have what the street calls the trinity. Hydro, sometimes Oxy, muscle relaxers, and two different benzo's. Scares me that one day my body will say, "Nope, no more" and I will wake up in the hospital again or die. My back pain is debi...

New Lithium Drug Regulations!!
l lost my mother to Lithium Poisoning/Toxicity last year. Although this drug has been around so long, I need to express my concerns. Why are there no REAL rules and regulations regarding how drug is dispensed and monitored? Her life could have been saved if the proper levels were taken as they should have been.I thought that a physician is supposed to take levels at least every 3 months? The doctor also had her on celexa, which I think complicated things even more. I wish there was an advocacy group or regulations that could bring awareness and try to protect people from this deadly drug and its dangers. My mother accidentally got the wrong dose and no labs for 18 months. She died 15 days after levels reach toxic and became flu like symptoms. Please be careful if you are taking this dru...

crushing sleeping pills
My husband will not take his sleeping pill. He stays up all night. Should I crush it up and put it in his food ## Hello, Bump! How are you? If he is of normal sound mind then no, you can't do that. It would actually be considered illegal. I know you're worried about him, but if he just doesn't want to take it and prefers to deal with his insomnia, then that is his right. If he isn't of sound mind and you are supposed to make sure that the takes it, then whether or not you can crush it and give it to him that way depends on which one he is supposed to be taking, since some of them are time released. Which one has he been prescribed and what is the dosage? ## It starts with a A. Ambiance I think That's how u spell it ## Did you mean Ambien? It is used for the short-ter...

swelling in legs and feet levothyroxin
just started taking Levothyroxin 2 wks ago my legs and feet are swollen so bad by nite I can barley walk they go down a little at nite but swell back. Iam taking 25mcg,has any one else had this problem? Iam afraid to continue taking this med. has any one else had this problem? ## Have you contacted your doctor? It sounds like you might be having a bad reaction to this medication and it may not be the right one for you, or may be too high of a dosage. Generally, the symptoms of a dosage being too high will start to manifest 6 days or so, after you start taking it and this type of fluid retention can be one of them and there is a chance that it could lead to congestive heart failure, if that's what's causing it and it isn't rectified. You should really contact your doctor imme...

First 4days....40mg, 30mg for the next 3...then when I started 20mg; dermatologist called that day and told me to add 3 more pills to up my dose bcuz i was still itchy.

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...

e-coli bladder infection (cystitis)
Started out taking Flagyl, 2000 mg in one day......did not work....cultured and e-coli infection....given 10 days of Cipro.....still have burning and pressure....At wits end....leaving in two days for vacation........I seem to get these quite often..had fishy smell, took bath and bang, next day burning..... ## Hello, Rosie! How are you? I am sorry that you're so sick. If you have a fishy odor coming from your genital area, then that likely denotes that you also have a vaginal bacterial infection. Thus, you might be treating one, while the other is still raging gout of control, because you might not be taking the right medication for it. Have you consulted your gynecologist? The fact that things are erupting after a bath also points to that possibility. Have you had any discharge? Do...

Taking lo loestrin fe 1 10, is it normal not to have a cycle
My doctor put me on lo loestrin fe 1-10 because my cycle was lasting 10-15 days for about 2yrs. I am 41 and before I was 3-5 days at the most. I have been taking the pill for five months. The 1st pack I had the 10-15 day cycle. The 2nd pack I had a 8 day cycle with a little spotting 1week later. The 3 pack I had 2 full days & 2 spotting days. The 4th pack I didn't have a cycle not even spotting. On 5th pack now & still nothing. My doctor said the pills should regulate my cycle but last 2 month I haven't had a cycle. Since teen years I have always had a cycle. The only time it stopped was during pregnancy & depo shot (stopped taking at 25). Is this normal? ## Hello, Nay! How are you? Some women don't have periods, while taking this oral contraceptive and it's ...

adderall 30 mg brand name
I have a prescription for brand name adderall 30mg. twice a day cant find pharmacy in Birmingham al Carries the brand name please help ## Hello, Micca! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. There are two possibilities for why you're having trouble finding it. One could be occurring if you're calling the pharmacies to ask if they have it. Since this is a controlled substance that is often abused, they will usually just tell you that they don't carry it. This is because they have no way of knowing if the person on the phone is a legitimate patient with a need, or a potential thief. The second might be due to a shortage. They typically occur towards the end of the year due to mandatory manufacturing limits on controlled substance. Each company is ...

Prepopik
Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste.

I will skip the lecture about the fact that addicts like you make it more difficult in general for people with legitimate chronic pain get the proper medications. Instead of looking in the "Physician" section of the Yellow Pages, try flipping through the "Drug Addiction Treatment" section. You need help,not more drugs. ## Hello, Criss! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. General practice doctors will not be able to prescribe it for you. And if you go in asking for a specific medication, th...
