Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds In Orange County Ca
I am 50 and work a hard labor job for 25 years. I am in chronic pain constantly. I want a better quality of life and to continue to work. I need a Doctor in Orange County, CA that can prescribe Norco for my pain. ## The main issue here may be due to the fact that you're asking for/looking for, a specific pain medication, especially one that contains a narcotic. Many doctors will see that as drug seeking behavior, it is something they are taught to watch out for in new patients. The best thing you can do is to see a new doctor and make sure that they receive a full copy of your medical records, so your records can speak for themselves. A doctor will be more likely to follow the information and prescribing practices of their fellow physicians. Does anyone know a good doctor in the are...

T.B medicine without side effects
Friends, I am 29 years old. 1 year back I was taking AKT-4 for 2 months i had pain in my joints. Doctor says, you wil feel the pain for 3 months and it will leave you. But, i dont want to take a chance with them. I went to Government hospital and took free medicines in India for 4 months.. that medicine works awesome... i dint feel any sideeffects and i was completely alright in 4 months. If you are in India I suggest you to go Government hospital. Treatment and medicine is completely free and no sideeffects.. India is trying to STOP T.B.

kera gro hair tabs
got these in the mail I ordered them,but afraid to take them they were not conpletey sealed! ## I ordered them too for being ignorant. These people dont eveb have a website. Its a treally fishy new company. They dont list any inredients, dont have a real working site and what they sent you isnt a trial, its a full sized bottle that you can use 14 days worth of it for free and return it after. If you dont return it after 14 days they will charge you for the entire bottle which is $85 dollars. I fell for this because I didnt bother to read and just ordered it because I was in a hurry and when I got home and read I was like O.O they are a typical scammy site with really cheesy claims. I checked out their "website" and they lie about several things like that ou can contact then by e...

Side effects? Worse anxiety?
I just started taking citalopram 20 mg 5 days ago. Today I had a terrible all over anxiety/panic attack that lasted about 10 min. I've never had anything that intense before. I wonder if I should just give this med more time to get in my system. Just wondering if this happened to anyone else? ## Hi they think citalapram takes 5-6 weeks to work u will feel worse before better keep at it is an amazing tablet it's helped me a great deal ## Hello, I seen you posted this a little while back. I was wondering how you were doing? I have started this medicine this past Friday. I have taken 4 doses of 10mg. Yesterday / Last night I felt terribly anxious for a good part of the day, and last night I woke up in a panic, and finally fell asleep about an hour later. Today, I feel a little ston...

Drixoral Substitute
Great news! I have FINALLY found the substitute for Drixoral Cold & Allergy and wish someone had told me before I had to suffer with allergy symptoms for so long. It's a combination of one Mucinex DM tablet and one Aleve-D Sinus & Cold tablet; take one of each at the same time and within an hour you'll feel like a brand new person! Mucinex DM is an OTC expectorant and cough supressant and Aleve-D (an extended release medicine) can be found behind the counter (you have to ask for it and show ID), but I found both at Walmart. I know the name brands cost more, but do not bother buying substitutions because they simply will not work; since Drixoral has not been available, I already have tried soooooo many that didn't help at all. Good Luck and I hope this works as well f...

I USED TO GIVE THIS TO MY SON 30 YEARS AGO FOR INFECTED MOSQUITO BITES AND IT CLEARED THEM UP ## I am looking for a place to buy cream of tartar pills. ## I'm sorry, but we have no way of knowing what store, or pharmacy has any given item in stock, at any given time.

HELP! suboxone withdrawal
I'm so aware of the returning withdrawal symptoms since I dropped down from 1/2 strp to 1/4 strip of Suboxone. Is it the closer you get to being done with the Subs the stronger the withdrawal symptoms occur? I've been on the 1/4 strip for 8 days now. I haven't been able to sleep, constant turning, weird leg feelings. I don't want to go up a 1/4 as I need off of it! I've been on this crap since end of Feb. when I was detoxed from Fentanyl 25mcg and Percocet. These were prescribed, after numerous surgeries since 2005. How long will these symptoms of, hot flashes, sleep issues go on? I have to be off of this Subs for 5 days, in order to have oral surgery. It's so unpredictable and scary. Can anyone offer wisdom??

Xolair/Omalizumab-Hair Loss
I have been taking this medication for 5 month and I have experience a lot of hair loss. Spoke with a friend who is taking the medication as well and has experienced tremendous hair loss. She has used Redkin Hair Products, with good success, she has managed to recoup much of her hair. Has anyone else experienced hair loss? ## I too have had hair loss. My hair is very thin now and I haven't touched a razor to my legs in months. ## yeah. I'm 16 and i have. ## Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of side effect information available on this drug, yet. You would probably be surprised to know how many drugs do cause hair loss, though. ## Hi. I am 20 years old and I have been shedding hair like crazy over the past two years..... I am not sure why this is happening. It's not geneti...

tramadol 50 mg
Hello all. I usually take vicodin when I have bad back pain, but wanted to try something that wouln't knock me out. I asked my Dr about tramadol and he said he'd only prescribe one or the other. Long story short I ordered online and got green and orange capsules in a blister pack from zenlabs. The pack says the drug is zendol-50, containing 50mg of tramadol. It was produced for zenlabs Canada in India. Now, these are very different than the little white pills I'm used to seeing. I took 3 last night (never taken that much before) and didn't feel much of anything. Can anyone help tell me if i'm taking some unknown drug or the real thing? Like most Indian meds, there is no imprint on the pill itself. ## Sorry, without an imprint it is impossible to postiviely identify w...

What Is The Use Of Taxim O Dt 100
my son is 4 yrs old. today i found him 100 deg fever ## From what I could gather, Taxim-O is a brand of Cefixime. This medication is a cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections such as pneumonia; bronchitis; gonorrhea; and ear, lung, throat, and urinary tract infections. I'm not sure why your doctor prescribed it for a fever, as to my knowledge, antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections; unless it could've originated from an infection of some kind. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Cefixime Details I hope this helps! ## My child was having diahorrea since last monday. Dr.had given ciplox tz previously. But stomach pain nd diarrea continued. Today dr prescribed taxim o dt 100. I m puzzeled wether my child will get cured...

gabapentin side effects elderly
I am 72 and take 1500mg of Gabapentin along with .125mg of Mirapex for my neuropathy & RLS. Reading these articles make me very apprehensive. Should I have concerns? I don't think the Gabapentin is helping my neuropathy at this point as my feet just scream sometimes & they are painful when I walk.
