Oxycodone tolerance issues
Hello this is the first time I have ever posted in a forum but I do not know where else to turn. So I have been taking Oxycodone off and on for about 5 yrs. I was hit by a car in AZ while I was walking and after a few MRI's I was put on 15 mg Roxicodone 5 times a day I was taking that for about 1yr now in az they are not that strict on Thier laws now sometimes I would have more pain so I would take 30 Mgs instead of 15, I told my doc and he said that happens sometimes so a few months before I left Az I was taking 30 Mgs up to 5 times a day (prescribed of course) so I end up leaving AZ and I move to Washington state the first thing I do is get reffered to A neurologist and pain management, the first thing he does is tell me I was on way to much and cuts me to 10mgs 3 times a day........

I am 39 and Have been on loEstrin 24 Fe for many years to now find out that it's no longer being made and was being switched to Minastrin 24 Fe. After being on this pill almost 3 wks, I have been an emotional hot mess , I cry for no reason at all , have gained weight , have had massive headaches, my boobs feel a lot fuller and bigger , stomach tenderness and cramping.

It sounds like your just getting a bad hormonal balance from the Minastrin, from the symptoms you list, it's most likely too much estrogen.

Ibogaine for Depression and Pain Management
This thread is to discuss Ibogaine as a means to treat Depression and Pain Management, including, but not limited to, anxiety, IBS, joint pain, brain fog, shortness of breath, backpain, FMS, CFS, anhedonia, sleep problems, racing thoughts, loss of libido -- symptoms which are often associated with depression. I would like to start a discussion on the subject since there is a lack of information regarding Ibogaine as a viable treatment option for Depression. Most information on the web only deals with Addiction treatment. This is an off-shoot of the thread Ketamine for Depression. You can find more information regarding my past history with depression and avenues of treatment that I've pursued in that thread (for example see post # 392 over there). Ibogaine. Ibogaine is the root bark...

cancer drugs
My brother died after taking Stivarga for one month. I want to know how many people this happened too. ## Hi Jean, Sorry to hear about what happen to your brother while taking Stivarga (regorafenib). However, it's hard to determine how many people this could've potentially happened to around the globe as a whole. According to the manufacturer's website for Stivarga, there were reportedly 275 deaths out of 505 patients taking the drug in clinical trials. The article went on to note that severe, fatal hepatotoxicity was an underlying cause of death sometimes observed during those trials. ## My husband died after taking this drug for 6 weeks :(

my last 2 xanax
My husband took my last two xanax and put them in his wallet because I have a bad habit of forgetting I already dosed and have had to call this hospital from taking extra. Xanax really does a doozy on myemory but my doc doesn't seem concerned. Anyway he forgot to put them back in the bottle this morning and he works a very physical job so the got crushed in his wallet.he insist I could probably just put the powder in a small glass of water and drink it and it should be fine. Sounds logical enough but will it work the same? Thank god he didn't get pulled over

doctors in springfield ill that prescribe pain meds
A doctor in or near Springfield Illinois that will prescribe pain medication and xanex. ## Hello, Wesley! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll most likely need to get them both from specialists, now. Do you current have a PCP that may be able to refer you to the appropriate doctors? That would likely be the easiest way to get the help you need. Xanax is a benzodiazepine, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## Before I moved, I used to go to Michael Brewer at Springfield Clinic. You just need to have a medical condition for the pain medicine or the records from old pcp. ## Wesley, I'm in Springfi...

Valum round white pill no. 6052
Found round white pill in brown cottle dated 1956. Rx #6052. Could be Valum. ## Hi James, How's it going? I just tried looking up the Rx number you provided, but after a few searches came to realize that this number can't actually be used to identify any pill in particular. I believe it's supposed to be a number the pharmacy might use within their realm of keeping track of prescriptions. However if you still happen to have the pill in your possession, I would encourage you to post back with any additional markings that might be on it as well. This way we can know for certain that it is what you say it is and not something else in the wrong bottle. I hope this helps and I'll look forward to hearing back from you!

feeling really bad on flagyl
my dentist prescribe flagyl . I need a root canal and the tooth was infected also I am taking a prevpac my dr. prescribe I am aching all over dizzy , and headach should I stop taking this I started friday I called my dr but she has not returned my call please tell me someone if I should continue or just stop taking it ugh feeling really bad ## That is a bit of a weird choice for a tooth infection, I must admit. This is most commonly used to treat bacterial and fungal infections. It is not a regular antibiotic, per se, and yes it can have significant side effects. I cannot tell you to stop taking it, since I am not a doctor and no one here is, so for us to try to give you an answer on that would be completely remiss, no one can diagnose or treat over the internet. If your doctor is not r...

nitro fur mac 50mg
My mother was given nitro furmac as result of several UTI infections year after year. Thinking the UTI was worsening and meds weren't working just yet, we didn't realize what was happening. She actually became non-responsive and had a stroke. All due to reaction of nitro furmac. Now on bactrim daily as a preventive antibiotic for infections. Not a concern in over a year. ## Hi George, I'm very sorry to hear about your mother's terrible experience with Nitrofurantoin. Although both medications have a long list of undesirable side effects, there's really no way of knowing ahead of time how you might react to one or the other until its too late. However I'm glad to hear that you were still able to pinpoint the problem none the less. May I ask how long she's been...
