30mg morphine vs oxycodone
I was on 5 30mg of oxycodone ir after doing some reading after you have more than 120mg in your system the rest is not helping you it's just loading your system up and your asking for long term problems my dr. Has since put me on 3 30mg oxycodone and one 30mg morphine extended release for nighttime and that seems to be the majic for me it helps the hard pain during the day and at night lets your system calm down when I'm sleeping . ## even though oxycodone is 1.5 x stronger than morphine, if you take an equivalent dose of mophine sulfate (90 m. vs. 60 oxy), will you still develop the same tolerance/addiction/dependency from the morphine as from the oxycodone?

watson vs others
Good day:) about the Watson percocet, I had the same problem with watson meds!! I realize that when I drink Watson percocets they don't do the same effects in my body... foe example Watson percs dont take my pain away 100 % but when I get my prescription from another pharmacy that carries percocet 10 3-25 I can't remember the other brand but they work perfectly! !! I question couple pharmacist and they say is the same thing...but am sorry! I've been drinking percocet 10 325 foe almost 3 years and I can tell you that they arw not the same... somthing is not right. ## Hi Pedro, From what others have mentioned throughout different forums, complaints seem to be a common trend with Actavis / Watson's Percocet tablets. Upon my own investigation, I determined that it could be d...

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. You ...

pain management clinic that accepts Medicaid in houston, tx area
Doctors thar accept medicaid in houston, tx area that prescribe oxy and morphine ## Do they really accept Medicaid? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such medications on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that may be able to refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area?

Terbinafine 250 mg
My vet prescribed terbinafine for a skin yeast infection for my 63 pound siberian husky. When I got home and read the label is said 250 mg three tablets once daily. Does this mean give all three tabs once daily? ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? Yes, that is what it says, if that's what's on the label. However, if you aren't certain, feel free to call your veterinarian and double check. Is there anything else I can help with?

pain pill doctors in AZ?
Neck/ back pain won't let me sleep its so bad. Have not had any pain meds for 3 weeks and that was only 20 5/325s. Help Please as AZ is a challenge these days ## Hello, Mat! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require pain medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the easiest way of finding the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? 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.

Need a doctor to increase my pain meds because PCP is afraid of DEA near Florenece or Columbia, SC
I have had over 20 procedures to reconstruct my urinary tract due to bladder mesh erosion. i self cath thru my belly button stoma and my entire spine has either herniated and bulging discs or fused discs and I am in EXCRUCIATING PAIN. My abdomen is the worst tho. I have a "bladder" made from resected bowel, colon and my appendix and I have "knives" and "hot pokers" in my belly 24/7. I need something stronger than a 10 mg oxycodone 4 times a day. My PCP won't do any more because of DEA. He referred me to pain management and they sent note to add a duragesic patch to my treatment plan. PCP refused. WHAT CAN I DO? I'm not a seeker, and don't do recreational drugs. Anyone know of a doc that would help????

Digoxin 981 versus JSP 544
I just renewed my Digoxin 125 MCG prescription. I have been getting JSP 544 and just received 981. The size of the 981 is larger than the JSP 544 in diameter and thickness. Is this just a difference in Manufacturer? ## Hello, Phil! How are you? Yes, the new one is the same medication, in the same dosage, just manufactured by Global Pharmaceuticals. This is very common with generic medications, whichever one your pharmacy has in stock can vary, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, at the time they need to restock their supply. Side effects may include nausea, loss of appetite, dizziness and blurred vision. Is there anything else I can help with?

tenoric 50
I want to no d side effects of tenoric when taking for a long time.I am presently taking it. tenoric 50. ## Hello, Henry! How are you? This medication is most commonly used to help treat high blood pressure and while there can be some risks associated with it, such as kidney damage, or failure, the thing that you need to remember is that it would be far more risky to let your blood pressure remain out of control, because that could lear to heart attack, congestive heart failure or stroke. What are your current blood pressure readings?

where to get tramadol after Aug 14th?
Since tramadol is becoming controlled in August, what are my options? I've always gotten it from web-based pharmacies due to not having insurance. please help!!! ## Tramadol is no longer able to be obtained online without a Rx in the USA. Other countries may offer their version of it but I'd be careful with that. Tramadol itself is a very inexpensive medication... if your Dr. writes you a Rx for it you'll find that is very inexpensive. ## Let me know if you find out anywhere else to order this. I dread running out of my tramadol...ohhhh mmyyyy ## If you really need it as bad as you say you do, I honestly think your best bet would be to go the legitimate route and see a good doctor who can prescribe this for you on a monthly basis. You can always save money on your script by ...

what is this pill from mexico?
smalle white round pill, scored on one side with and L D on it and the other side has either an MK or M< on it. What is this pill? ## Hello, Mike! How are you? I'm sorry, but the relevant word here is Mexico! They don't regulate their medications like the U.S. or Canada, so there is no central database available to research them. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

I have been weaning off topomax for this past weekend. I am now down to 50mg in the am and 50mg at night. I have memory problems so bad I am no longer working, my hair is thinning, ringing in the ears has worsened and nightmares. I talk and move alot in my sleep. I know sometimes I am talking. Someone else mentioned that and I have that too. I get so sleepy and it hits me all of a sudden. Now that I have read these posts I think this maybe the cuprit afterall. ## Hello, Sabby! How are you? Yes, these anticonvulsants tend to cause side effects just like what you've mentioned, they've been reported by many people that take them. However, regardless of what you're taking it for, stopping too suddenly could cause seizures, so you should be careful to wean off of it very slowly, ...
