Need 150 mg Lovenox Injections
Lost my health insurance and just found out I have another DVT. I take 150 mg injections and I only have 10 left. Pharmacies are charging around $3,000 a month, I don't see how anyone can afford that. I just need enough until December when my insurance kicks in with my new job. What is the best way to get Lovenox for a reasonable price? ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? There is an assistance program through Sanofi for uninsured patients called Sanofi Patient Connection. You can call them for an application and program details at 888-847-4877. I've found most of these programs to respond pretty quickly to keep people from missing doses of their medications. This medication may cause side effects, such as dizziness, increased risk of bleeding and administration site irritation. Is t...

a-333 oxycodone pill is a fake
my wife has a bad heart, and pain effects her heart. these actavis percocet must be nothing but phony material. they dont even touch her pain like watson pills did. this company should not be able to cheat the public like this. peoples heath is at stake. they need to be shut down. why are these companies allowed to sell products that don't even work. people pay to get their pain taken care of. does cvs not care either, they are accepting these. ## there are others complaining about actavis on this website. look around a little ## Hello, Stan! How is your wife doing? I'm very sorry that this medication isn't working for her. The best suggestion I can make is that she speak to her doctor about prescribing something else. From what I have read in various posts, many people are ...

Prednisone tapering... numbness normal?
I recently had a baby on the 21 Sept. I had a drug eruption afterwards. I had an epidural they gave my hydrocodone, ibuprofen for my pain because I got stitches after delivery...then on the 1st Oct I had a drug eruption that was lots of tiny bump-like pus pimples that broke out on my tummy, onto my breasts, then my wrists. So then they referred my to a dermatologist that day and I started one dose of aantibiotics but because I was itching and still fighting the breakout the next day they started me on prednisone. First 4days....40mg, 30mg for the next 3...then when I started 20mg; dermatologist called that day and told me to add 3 more pills to up my dose bcuz i was still itchy. Oct 10 was my first dose of 50mg, I am on the 5th day...on the 15th I go down to 40mg for 5days...etc. But la...

tramadol after August 18??
Hearing lots of places that the people who order tramadol via internet will no longer be able to. I live in a town with uptight doctors who charge outrageous prices plus insist on doing constant testing before writing a prescription. If true what are my option after Aug 18 ## i wish i had an answer for you, i have been using it for 3 years, more as a anti-depressant. I take 200 mg a day and feel good, certainly not intoxicated. This decision by FDA is ridiculous. Tramadol is not in the same class as Percs and Roxys etc. Unbelievable. I can go to Dr but i will be spending mad $ on their BS. Prices in the international market will now be inflated as well. The market is risky unless you know credible sources. ## Tramadol will become a Controlled Substancde Schedule IV in Aug. But, Schedule...

how to get gabapentin out your system
I have bipolar. I've been taking gabapentin for 2 years now. I just changed pharmacys & getting a different manufacture of the gabapentin. I have been crying about an hour after I take it & get nausous. I have never had this problem before. Do u think it could be the way its manufactured? ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to the next, or when going from the name brand to a generic, so that might be what's causing your problems. It sounds like the new ones might be a little stronger than the one you were taking, before. Both the nausea and the mood swings can be normal side effects of this medication and would be expected with a dosage adjustment. You may also experience dry mouth, dizzin...

crushing sleeping pills
My husband will not take his sleeping pill. He stays up all night. Should I crush it up and put it in his food ## Hello, Bump! How are you? If he is of normal sound mind then no, you can't do that. It would actually be considered illegal. I know you're worried about him, but if he just doesn't want to take it and prefers to deal with his insomnia, then that is his right. If he isn't of sound mind and you are supposed to make sure that the takes it, then whether or not you can crush it and give it to him that way depends on which one he is supposed to be taking, since some of them are time released. Which one has he been prescribed and what is the dosage?

conversion from opana er 15mg to ms cottin
My Dr has given me the option to switch from Opana ER 45mg to msCottin ER! How many MG of MSCottin ER will it take to equale the Opana ER 45mg?? ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? Opana is actually much stronger than Morphine, so you'd need 135mgs of the MS Contin to equal each 45mgs of the Opana. That's quite a lot to take. Is the Opana no longer working for you? 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. Oxycontin or Fentanyl might be better options.

Klonopin brand name
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

The video I came across from another website concerning a diet pill that started with the letter P Is there such a video I could view this again
White diet pill, that starts with the letter P, I found on a video from the website I was in. Not sure now what the website was now. Please find if you can. ## Hello, Patsy! How are you? That's not a lot to go on. Do you remember anything else about it? Was it a prescription medication or over the counter? Was it possibly Phentermine, which is a stimulant used for weight loss that is only available by prescription? It can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, irritability and anorexia. ## No, it was a pill especially desirable for senior citizens over 55+, that would help a lot of health related problems.

only subutex discount card
Need help paying for subutex ## Hello, Tammy! How are you? I'm sorry, but I have not been able to find a current assistance program for Subutex. This is fairly normal, since generics are available now, which by their very nature are cheaper. One idea to try to save money on your prescription would be to ask your pharmacy if they accept any discount cards. Most of them are free to enroll in, you just sign up on the relevant website and then print the card. Does anyone else have any ideas? Will you insurance cover it? 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.

2 months on percocet
I have been takin percocet 5-325 for 2 months as directed. Have not abused at all. I originally was taking for pain following a breast reduction. After that pain seemed to cease, I continued taking as I noticed the percocets helped with my chronic tendonitis in my thumbs. Anyway, I am down to 2 pills, will I go through withdrawal ? Again, only took as directed for 2 months, and sometimes not more that 4 pills a day. I'm leaving town tomorrow to take care of my Mom after she has major surgery. I'm worried now that I will have withdrawal symptoms and not be of any help to her!! ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? You may experience some minor withdrawal effects, such as nausea, dizziness, chills and diarrhea, but they shouldn't be severe and debilitating. Since you were also on them ...

black capsule 18 789
Found an all black capsule with the imprint 18-789 on it in my son's room but I can't find out anything about it. ## This isn't listed in any of the prescription drug databases that I've checked, so it's most likely an over the counter product, but there is also a small chance that it could be a foreign medication. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this capsule? ## This is speed.

I am very sorry about what's been happening to you. However, what pills has he been putting in your drinks? You didn't list a specific medication or pill description. Nor did you place this in any particular pill forum. Can you please post back with more details, so I can help you? Thanks! As to your boyfriend, if he's really doing this, I'd be very cautious about trusting him and you should know that this is illegal. It could be very dangerous. ## I checked the pill and the number on it and looked it up. Says the are colonop...

which side of the pill is pseudoephedrine
I am very confused which side of the pill could be sudafedrine the tan are the white ## Hello, Robert! How are you? Neither one is just the Pseudoephedrine, the ingredients are equally dispersed throughout the entire tablet. The different colors is just something that manufactured decided to do to emphasize the ingredients and how their medication is supposed to work. Side effects to Allegra-D may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and elevated blood pressure. This medication is used to treat allergy symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?
