Gemcal capsule
is it ok to have gemcal daily.i am having it for the last 1yr .is there any side effects. ## Gemcal is a nutritional supplement it contains: Calcitriol .25 mcg, Calcium Carbonate 500 mg and zinc 7.5 mg. Learn more dietary supplement information here. As to taking it daily, in theory there shouldn't be a problem, because all of these nutrients are very important to your health, as long as you don't take more than is recommended. However, it is always advisable to ask your doctor about anything you take regularly, just to be safe. Do you have any medical conditions? Do you take any medications regularly? ## Tnx for the info. I have mild osteoarthritis in both knees. Hence doctor adviced me to take Gemcal capsules...1 daily. Definitely there's improvement in my condition but th...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

prescription of bactrim filled a year ago is it still safe to take
I have a sinus infection and want to know if these are still safe to take ## Hello, Ang673! How are you? They don't become dangerous, once expired, but they do begin to lose effectiveness, so they may not properly eradicate an infection, that coupled with the fact that you may not have enough to complete a full course of treatment creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, it would be best to see your doctor for a new prescription. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, non-alelrgic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No and thank u for replying...i did have enough, it was a full script and I did end up taking them because I needed something at the moment for my infection. It helped infection is gon...

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...

Are there any generic forms of Oxycontin, the OC type, in any dosages?
Are there any generic forms of Oxycontin, the OC type, in any dosage? I remember that a while ago there were some generics out for this medication, but it seems like they have all disappeared. ## Yes, they have all been removed from the market, due to the ever increasing amounts of abuse, theft and diversion. The time released formulation of Oxycodone is now only available in the name brand Oxycontin, manufactured by Purdue Pharma. The basic idea was that if it's only made by one manufacturer, then it makes it much easier to keep track of the supply and prevent theft and diversion. However, there are other formulations of Oxycodone, which are available as both name brands and generics. There is an immediate release formulation, the name brand for it would be OxyIR and there is a reg...

Topamax and Binge Eating Disorder
After trying two antidepressants and multiple therapists, my doctor has decided to prescribe me Topamax for my binge eating disorder. I used to also be bulimic, but thanks to therapy have ceased purging for about six months now. I wanted to get feedback from those whose have been prescribed Tomamax for binge eating disorder and/or bulimia. My binging includes consuming anything edible, including expired items in the trash and edible vitamins/supplements/spices, so it is a very serious case. I will binge to the point of illness and have gotten food poisoning from eating rancid food. Has anyone with binge eating disorder found Topamax to help them? If so, what dosage were you on and how long did it take to get relief? I am afraid to take another medication only to be let down again, but I...

weight gain for Lexamil
I have been taking Lexamil 20mg for 4months, I realize weight gain can be a side effect. However ive picked up 9kg in such a short space of time. I also take trepiline at night? Is this normal.

How to taper off Temazepam completely
Please help; doctor doesn't want me as a patient anymore, reasons are ridiculous and too long to get into, but now she has put me in a jam. I was taking Clonazepam 2mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for anxiety & sleep), & Temazepam 30mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for sleep). I have been on both these drugs for 2 1/2 years & want to get the heck off them. I noticed the last couple months; neither appeared to be helping the anxiety/sleep issues I have had; so basically I just want off both. I have been Clonazepam free for 11 days now. I CANNOT believe how I feel--like I could crawl right out of my skin; anxiety ridden, non stop talking,completely wired,nerves jumping in arms & legs, more and more and on and on. Bad idea to go cold turkey, but did & now out of them. So I have ...
