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...

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in long island
I had a dr who was prescribing me 150 30mg roxycodone every month. He decided the past month that he no longer is writing them and is only writing subs. I cannot find a dr who will write me my script. Can anyone suggest anyone? ## Who was the doctor ## I'm sorry about the problem that you've run into. However, you're not going find a doctor to just write you your prescription, as a matter of fact, if you're contacting doctors to ask them about prescribing such a medication, they're all going to be inclined to tell you no and not even let you get in the door, because they consider that to be drug seeking behavior. Have you tried asking that doctor to refer you to a pain management specialist? ## i know plenty of drs in nj who prescribe oxycodone and other pain meds 2 ...

Hello everyone! I've been on suboxone 4 almost 8 years now. Due 2 Oxy addiction and pain. Had many of surgeries and lots of medical problems. Also, on klonopin 4 anxiety and PTSD. I've never had any cravings 2 want 2 use until now . I just had my cat of 14 years put 2 sleep this morning. She had a huge lump in her neck that was stopping her breathing. She was my baby, slept with me every night and followed me every where . I have been crying my eyes out all day and night. What's bothering me is the cravings 2 want 2 use. I don't want 2 ruin my sobriety, but, these feelings r so strong. Has anyone else ever get cravings? Especially during a hard time? And , will they pass soon. I'm sorry if I rambled on, but, needed. 2 ask. ThanksG for your input. ## Hi, Sorry to hear...

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...

PLEASE HELP ME FIND A PHARMACY CAN GET WHAT I NEED TO GET BETTER
fill 30mg oxycodone in las vegas: I had severe chronic pancreatitis and just moved back to Las Vegas for work. I went back to my previous doctor that was my general doctor before moving and she wrote a prescription for 30mg 150 qty for 1 month until I can meet with a pain specialist and I have spent 2 days driving around looking for anyone who will fill them. Everyone except Walgreeens says they are out and won't tell me why. I have to go to Philly for work on Sunday morning and I am literally panicking. Can someone help me or tell me where to go - this is all legitimate, I have a prescription I just can't find a place that can fill it. I have never ever posted on here before but I don't know what to do --- please help me.

small round pink pill labelled phentermine
the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentamine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pill ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was p...

arthri d capsules
saw a tv ad interested to know if available in Canada I suffer from rhematoid arthritis in my knees and need some help other than drugs ## Arthri-D is a supplement, so while they make a lot of claims, it is not actually proven to help with anything. From what I can find, it contains: Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Chondroitin, NAG, Turmeric, Rice Flour, Boswella Serrata, Ashwagandha, Yucca, Bromelain, Evening Primrose Oil, Green Lipped Muscle and Hyaluronic Acid. As to availability, I do not have any information on that, they do not even sell it online, you have to call them for ordering information. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## This is their web address. You cannot order online yet. www.arthrid.com ## Please provide Arthri-D product information as well if there are a...

Nexium side effects?
I have been given a prescription of Nexium for a gerd/reflux issue. However, since I've been taking it, it seems like my arthritis ( mainly in my hands ) has been hurting more and getting worse. Is arthritis inflammation or joint soreness a side effect of Nexium? ## Have you been taking any other vitamins or medications with the Nexium? Although joint pain is not specifically listed as a side-effect (headaches are possible though), I am wondering if there are any drug interactions going on here. You can also read more about this medication at: Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do... ## Re: Nexium side effects reply from Roy. I am not on any other medication, however, I do take Vitamin C ( 2000 mg ), and Vitamin D ( 1000 IU ) daily. ## I a...

does amoxicillin go bad with age?
I bought 100 amoxicillin caps about 3 years ago and stored them in a dark place,and I was curious if they would still be good to take. ## does amoxicillin expire ## don't use it. amoxicillin goes bad a year from when you bought it. ## Actually, no, it does not go bad, it just loses efficacy, so it is not as strong or as potent as when you first bought, starting from about 18 months past the manufacture date. You should never self-diagnose or self-treat with antibiotics anyway, there are so many other conditions that will not respond to them, so they have no effect, and you of course run the risk of developing an antibiotic resistant strain of something with overuse, so please see your doctor. ## first of all why do you just have the drug sitting around? did you take it and not finis...

Suprep
Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...
