morphine 100mg er vs Lower Cost Alternative
I am a cronic pain patient. I have been taking Morphine ER 100mg for about 2 years. The price on my pills just doubles at my local pharmacy, My Dr is very open to recommendations, Can anyone recommend an alternative drug with the same pain killing potency with a lower cost. He had prescribed my Oxycontin, but the price at the pharmave was going to be about $700 per month out of pocket for me. The Morphine ER 100MG (qty 90, 3 per day) had been costing me $97 with my drug discount card, today when my wife refilled, they charged $190. When I called about it they said that the retail price of the pills had gone up. ## I have run into the same problem this month. My insurance will only pay for Morphine immediate release, and nothing else. If you find anything that might help both of us, I wo...

genric hydrocodone
white round pill with k3 on one side and a cross on the other side ## Hello, Chazmo! How are you? No, this is not a narcotic of any type. This tablet contains 25mgs of Promethazine, which is an antihistamine that's most commonly used to treat or prevent nausea and vomiting. Side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

No One Will Tell Me If The Doctor Has Ordered To Take Much Pain Meds 2 Tabs Morphine 15mg And 5 Hydrocodone 10 325mg Aday Gabapentin 800mg 3 Times Car
will someone anwer this question for me doctor will not lower meds and i am not awake enought to take them as ordered. doctor will drop me if is order our not followed ## If you are sleeping that much, then yes, there is a possibility that you are taking too many medications, but only you can really decide that. What type of doctor are you seeing? It really makes no sense for him to refuse to lower medications, if necessary. What is his reasoning for it? Most doctors are far too conservative the other way and are afraid of prescribing too much. ## For anyone else in this boat, the doctor is referring to the fact that when he gives you a u.a., you had better have the opiates he prescribed in your system or else he will think you are diverting your medications. Also this post sounded trol...

Roxycotin 30 mg (oxycodone)
I am on 30mg Roxycotin (oxycodone) 180 tablets per month. I have insurance, however, cannot find a pharmacy that has supplies of prescription (I hear many people are having this issue recently). My doctor might prescribe an alternative. I am very afraid of the alternative due to not understanding how medications translate. I fear it not being adequate for me to function and go to work. What is a viable alternative? Does anybody know. I am told dilaudid (I cannot spell the med.) But the doctor is saying 8mg. in the amount of 110 pills (as opposed to 30mg of oxycodone in the amount of 180 pills) that I am currently prescribed. It looks like a serious drop in the ammount and mg. of medication. I fear the worst. Anybody have any advice. It would be greatly appreciated. ## dear freind; the r...

NEW ON LEXAPRO
I have a history of anxiety/depression. After 2 life changing events I fell back into this funk. Was put on Luvox and it worked fine. Then had another loss with a company rightsizing and was laid off and have since moved back into home with parents (I am 40). Without insurance started going to local psychiatrist who decided I was Bipolar. To make long story short..........wrong diagnosis. After a month and a half on Latuda which has sent me spiraling down even further into depression and hopelessness, my parents got involved and with blessing of my psychologist (who also didn't think I was Bipolar) we weaned me off of Latuda and onto 10 mg Lexapro after much research. I've been on for 2 weeks and have suffered the nausea, dizziness and loss of weight and right now after 2 1/2 mo...

Flu injection
When I have the common flu injection, the next day I start flu synptoms which goes on for weeks.As I am on sintrom and other Rythmonorm tablets, does this have anything to do with this situation? I also have Priola injection (60mg) every six months for my bones.Is there any side effects with the other tablets? ## Hi Araxi! Sometimes when people get the flu shot they can get flu symptoms. It doesn't happen to every one but it does to some people. Call your doctor if you feel that bad. He can answer all your questions. I hope you feel better.

Dark Grey Pill No Imprint
can someone please tell me what these are? i found 7 small round dark greyish colored pills, they have no imprint on either side ## If there are no markings on them, it may be difficult to determine exactly what they contain. We can rule them out as being a prescription medication, because they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. That means they are most likely an over the counter product and that leaves it open to quite a few possibilities. Learn more OTC drug details here. What is your general location? Some products are regional, so that may help to narrow it down. ## I found a large medium grey oval pills. They are unmarked but have a line going through the center on one side. Does anyone know what this may be? Anything dangerous? ## found a redish brow...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them eac...

I need a methodone doctor in st.clair county or Macomb county
Help me find a doctor in st.clair or Macomb county to prescribe methadone. I can not take suboxen hate it no meth clinic s by me ## Hi Peachy! If you need methadone for addiction issues you will have to go to a clinic. It's against the law for doctors to prescribe methadone to patients who have addictions. They can only prescibe it for pain. If you can't take suboxone, ask your doctor about subutex. It has buprenorphine in it but not naloxone.

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, ...

I am Having toooth infection and my cheeks have swollen and dentist gave me offtex-OZ tab How many days it will take to cure the infection and swelling ## Hi Uday! You should start feeling better after a few days. But, make sure you finish ALL of the medication. Just because you start feeling better doesn't mean you can stop the medication. The infection could still be there. People make that mistake a lot.
