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...

generic pills
round, pink with GG739 on it. what is it.thank you. ## Hey Bob, I'm not sure if you're the same Bob who's asked this type of question before, where I had also left a response... but in case you're not, this particular pill reportedly contains 75mgs of Diclofenac sodium (delayed release); manufactured by Sandoz. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug widely recognized for treating inflammation, pain, and fever; but happens to have other a few other off-label uses as well for conditions such as actinic keratoses and migraines. If you'd like, you can also learn more about this drug on the page for Diclofenac Details I hope this helps!

People on Humira over 65 years old
The Dr has recommended Humira for me. I am very hesitant as I feel at my age-66-it may not be the wisest thing to do. I would love to hear from those of you my age who have had experience with this drug. Thanks so much! ## Hi Arlene, When it comes to determining if any particular drug will work for you, there's really no honest way to know for sure until you try it yourself. Chronological age is just a number and does not always reflect "biological age", which in my opinion would be a more accurate way of diagnosing the overall state of your body and mind, based on how healthy you are as an individual. I don't know if doctor's also take this into account before recommending you try something like Humira, but no matter your age I would only do what you feel comfortabl...

round white xanax no markings
About the size of US valium with a split score on one side. ## Doesn't sound like any Xanax? ## @Tom, Depending where or who you got this from, my guess is that it's either a home-made counterfeit or manufactured in some other country outside of the US, where they are known for selling discreet unmarked drugs. One thing is for certain though, and that is, that it's definitely NOT a legitimate "US-based" prescription drug, since the FDA requires all of these medications to have markings for determining the substance, dosage, and manufacturer. But if you have any other specific details relating to how you came about getting it, I think that will help give us a strong indication as to whether or not it's even real. Also, how would you assume that it's xanax if t...

Suboxone withdrawal support and advice
Hello all! I am now on day #11 of no suboxone after 3 years of being on it for Tramadol dependancy after numerous shoulder surgeries from an old football injury. I was able to ween down to 1-1.5 mgs a day before stopping. I was so sick of the Dr's appts, fees, trips to the pharmacy, etc. although I never felt like I was "using" while on subs, I never felt like I was sober either. I've been trying to stop for almost 6 months now but I kept going back to the Dr after only being able to go a few days here and a few days there before giving up due to bad withdrawal. This month, I blew off my appt because I knew that that would be the only way I could stick to my guns. It was "ripping off the bandaid" so to speak. Because I canceled the appt, even if I were to try to ...

oxycodone in stock anywhere?
i needi wanted too know if any pharmacy in florida that can feel the perscrption for oxycodone i appreceate your help i have to much pain and i can not find the anywhere i have medical card thank you i appreciate ## Apparently there are a ton of other people within these forums having the same issue with filling prescriptions in the state of Florida. So you're definitely not alone on this matter. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing what pharmacy has any given medication in stock, at any given time. From what I could gather, there was a shortage, due to imposed manufacturing limits at the end of the year, so it may just be taking awhile for all pharmacies to get a supply back in to fill prescriptions. In the meantime you may want to consider ordering from a legitimate online pha...

is it ok to take two each 200 mg ibuprofen and 1 10 mg hydrocodone325 mg apap at one time
My wife has horrible tooth pain in the upper and lower right molars. She just took two ea 200 mg ibuprofen about 1 hr ago with no relief. Can she take 1 10 mg hydrocodone/325 mg apap now? ## No, the two anti-inflammatories, Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen should not be mixed, that is too high of an amount of them and it raises the risk of bleeding and other complications. Has she contacted a dentist? ## correction. Ibuprofen and acteminophen serve 2 distinctly differant objectives and are wholey compatible to be used with each other. In fact is quite often perscrbed together. Ask doctor for cor5rect dossages. ## acetaminophen (Tylenol) does NOT have anti-inflammatory properties. It is ONLY an analgesic(pain reliever) and an antipyretic (fever reducer ## I have a severe toothache. I've b...

White Xanax Bar G3722
the two G"s are different. 1 is more angular and 1 is rounded. just FYI ## The more rounded 1s r real. KMXUA ## @Casey, To confirm, the pill you have is in fact Xanax (Alprazolam) 2 mg. Xanax (Alprazolam) is primarily used to treat moderate to severe anxiety disorders (e.g., social anxiety disorder) and panic attacks, and is used as an adjunctive treatment for anxiety associated with moderate depression. Manufacturer: Greenstone Limited National Drug Code (NDC): 59762-3722 The difference in the look of the G's could just mean that they are from two different manufacturers. Learn More: Alprazolam Details If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I have recently got some white Xanax 2 mg with G3722 on them. when I took one I f...

what is hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 used for
I have.multiple sclerosis legs pains and body pains ## Hi Meletha, I'm very sorry to hear about your condition. But to answer your question, Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen is a narcotic analgesic used to treat moderate to severe pain. 5/325 is regarded as one of the lowest doses you can get, so god forbid in the event that things escalate, there is always room to ask your doctor for a stronger version of the same medication. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen Details I hope this helps!

i have been diagnosed with osteonecrosis of the jaw can it be stopped there a cure
I want to know what other people are feeling and is there a cure? I am afraid of this. ## @LaIA, When it comes to treatment options for Osteonecrosis, rheumatology.org states that most patients who develop this condition are often treated with "rinses, antibiotics, and oral pain relievers"; which according to them, can reportedly help resolve a case of Osteonecrosis within months. However from what I've read, apparently it is also difficult to diagnose which risk factors could've caused this condition to begin with, since Osteonecrosis itself is said to be diagnosed only by the presence of an exposed bone, lasting several weeks. But if you can determine what may have caused it to develop overtime, I imagine that it would probably make future preventative measures much ea...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Diltiazem 360 er
At one time I was on Tiazac 360 er and then the pharmacy put me on Diltiazem 360. The Tiazac 360 er is more economical than Diltiazem 360 er. I wanted to switch back to Tiazac 360 er. I have 5 refills left, and I asked the girl at the pharmacy and she said that I would have to have a new prescription. I thought that both of these were generics and I do not understand why I would have to have another prescription. The Tiazac works just as well as Diltiazem. Thanks for your help! ## Hi Dave, Tiazac is actually a brand name of Diltiazem; but I too find it odd that they would make you switch off of something that's working just fine without giving any specific reasoning behind their decision. Instead they just say "here you go!" and that's that. I personally prefer brand nam...
