ZUBSOLV 5.7
i was on subutex 8mg and ive been reading about these new subutexs with the 8 and the arrow on them. i got a different kind there zubsolv 5.7 mg/1.4 mg ? i dont understand is one of these pills equal to a 8 mg? there small white round tablet imprinted with 5.7 on the front? ## Subutex contains just the narcotic Buprenoprhine as the active ingredient, so an 8mg tablet of it contains that much of the Buprenorphine… Where the Zubsolv is actually an equivalent to Suboxone, because it contains the Buprenorphine (in this case 5.7mgs) and Naloxone (in this case 1.4mgs). Learn more Subutex details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. So no, they aren't equal to the 8mg Subutex tablets. This medication is a narcotic opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause s...

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...

ranbaxy lorazepam
I was taking Ranbaxy for almost 3 years and was just fine. No anxiety and no side effects. Then about a month and a half ago I started getting anxiety. Found out CVS changed to Mylan brand. I found I could get one more month's supply of Ranbaxy but at the two mg strength. Was a problem with dosage amount because I had to quarter the tablets. They cut in half nicely but the quartering was always unequal. I read this board and knew to stay away from Mylan, Watson and Santos (sp?) So I called around to the mom and pop pharmacies and found one that carried Excellium. I had read very little about Excellium on the forum but the pharmacist said he had been selling it for 10 years and never had a complaint. Scared to death, I transferred my two remaining refills to this place. I've been...

i get 90 10mg oxycodone from my doctor each month i want to know what minimum he can give me per month
i want to know why my dr. will only prescribe me 90 pills of 10mg oxycode for a month yet know people that get up towards 120 a month. because by the end of my month i have to live in pain for a wek and a hlf before i can drive to his office wait in the waiting room and finally be see , just to get the same 90, which are'nt enough. ## Actually, your doctor is not obligated to give you any of them, ever. 90 pills a month would be 3 a day and that is the normal dosing for pain. How many does your prescription tell you to use? Have you told the doctor that this dosage is not handling your pain? Have you considered a different doctor or perhaps pain management? Oxycodone is a very potent narcotic analgesic. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read m...

generic 10mg oxycodone IR KVK brand. Any info about known quality of this med compared to other generics?
I have seen so many different opinions and information about companies offering generic oxycodone and the differences in strength, and quality over other generic brands. I have also heard that the FDA allows from 12% to 20% variances in the active ingredient (oxycodone) in their pills. Which if i am understanding this correctly, they can be + or - 12 to 20% of the actual amount of oxycodone per tablet? Can someone with the expertise or knowledge (like a pharmacist or a doctor) explain this to us who have heard this and don't understand? I personally suffer with chronic pain from a construction accident 20 yrs ago in which my back was broken in 7 places along with a lot of muscle and nerve damage which has left me on disability and in chronic pain after 4 surgeries and 7 levels of my...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

what is q dryl
used in compounding prescription with lido 2% & antacid liq, pre ## Hi Janet, How's it going? Based on my research, "Q-Dryl" reportedly contains the active ingredient Diphenhydramine. This medication is mainly indicated for the temporarily relieve of allergy symptoms (such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, etc), but has other off-label uses as well. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Diphenhydramine Details I hope this helps answer your question!

How Can I Get My Pm Doctor To Switch Me From Percoset Roxicontin
Hi, I am currently prescribed 10/325 oxycodone 4 times a day, I REALLY want to get my PM doctor to switch me to Roxicodone but don't know how to go about asking him without sounding like a druggie, I have tried my husbands Roxi's twice and they help me better and last longer, just not sure how to word the request, last visit the dr offered to switch me to morphine but honestly that scares me to be on morphine ## I'm not surer why the Morphine would scare you, when it's not as strong and dangerous as the Oxycodone you are currently taking. What does is his Roxicodone? It contains the active ingredient Oxycodone, which is the same as the narcotic in your Percocet, but the Percocet also contains Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone to work better. ## Tell your doctor yo...

kvk tech oxycodone 30 mg
Regarding KVK Tech oxycodone 30mg / K-9 ...Garbage ! I have serious pain from two separate problems. Bottom line is Walgreens switched from Activis to KVK recently and I noticed the difference within one day, pain waking me more than usual and early withdrawal sensations. I should add that I don't misuse or abuse, all I want is pain relief. I'm fed up with fighting every step of the way to manage my pain (resulting from injuries sustained as a firefighter/ medic and a connective tissue disease) Thanks to the war on drugs and so many people overdosing, the government has the doctors and pharmacies all running scared, etc.. So people who are legit and truly suffering every day are screwed. Seems like they forgot about us. I wish these people AND the addicts/ abusers could feel wha...

fake xanax tastes/smells like soap
White perforated sticks, taste like soap which is an ester and has nothing on reverse side. Must have some content of benzos as they keep me from getting sick but are certainly not 100% 2 mg aprazolam. Anybody ever run across this? ## Hi Irish14, How's it going? Without a marking of any kind it could literally be anything. However I doubt it's made in the U.S., since all prescription drugs here require imprints for determining the drug name, dosage, and manufacturer. But if you say it keeps the withdrawals at bay, then in my opinion, it's most likely a counterfeit from overseas.... Was this something you had previously ordered online or had just found on the street?

white cross energy pills
smaller than an asprin and makes you want to get up and go, fast ## I am not sure what you are asking, if you need me to identify your I will need more information about the pill. If you need me to locate a drug or it's ingredients, I will need more informaiton as well. Please post back so i can assist you with your question. ## It's about half the size of an asprin, it's white, plain on one side, an X or a cross on the other side. That's all there is to it. ## The only pill I could locate with just an X on it is Sennosides 17 mg, but it's brown and round. I will keep trying to see if I can find any more. ## those pills are probably no longer available. we used to buy them in the 70's for $20 per 100. 2 in the morning and you were ready for anything including los...

metoprolol withdrawal
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

oxycodone purple
Lots of questions on identification of pills LOL. Have any of you been subjected to having to purchase Oxycodone manufactured by KVK Tech? Over a year ago the pharmacies started pushing these pills on several of us. They don't work and have awful side effects. Anyone else had bladder, attitude, pain relief problems? ## Hello, Susie! How are you? Yes, many people have been complaining about the tablets from KVK Tech, as well as several from a few other manufacturers. It isn't just you that's having an issue with them. 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. Have you spoken to your doctor about the problem? They may be able to prescribe a different m...

generic percocet 10/325 A333 are making me extremely sick to my stomach
absolutely not one shred of pain relief. This medication against all the scary stories about narcotics, I was desperate for pain relief, so I needed something, have been getting my scripts now for almost two years, with my periodic UA, which is all good. Because of the help of this medication, I have been able to return to school and not too farm from earning my Bachelors in clinical psychology with a focus mental healthcare, especially PTSD from childhood trauma and PTSD from our veterans from combat. I desire to really help others with ADHD/ADD, childhood abuse, addiction and recovery, there is a huge difference in taking medication which is regulated and not mis-used or abused, than taking for non-pain related reasons. I have even been able to enjoy my grandson that just turned three...

New user of neurontin
A dermatologist prescribed Neurontin (400mg 3x daily) for neuropathic brachioradial pruritis. Anyone else have this? I started taking it last night and took one this AM. It made m every drowsy. Does this go away in time? (It's about 4 hours since I took it and I feel less drowsy although I don't think I would droive my car.) ## Hello, Pikov! How are you? Neurontin is an anticonvulsant that can also help with certain types of nerve pain. Drowsiness can be a normal side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, weight changes and mood swings. Yes, it should taper off in severity, after about 4 to 6 weeks, once your body adjusts to the medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## At this point, I'm up to 2400 mg/day. The itching has subsided, but I've gained more than...
