kansas city mo pain medication prescribers
I am uninsured and have a referral to a pain management clinic, but cannot afford the clinic. I would like to know of any cheap doctors who would prescribe the narcotic pain medication I need to be on in the Kansas City MO area. ## Hi, Kat! How are you? I'm sorry, but under the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require narcotic pain medications on a long-term basis to treat chronic pain, you're going to have to see a pain management specialist. PCPs are no severely restricted in what they can prescribe, how long they can prescribe it and why they can prescribe it. Do you qualify for any type of assistance to help paying for the clinic? ## Hello Verwon, thank you for the reply. I am currently trying to get Medicaid but I know the clinics do not take Medicai...

Queries about using evion 400 capsules
my gym coach has recommend evion 400 capsule to me for stretch marks which is on the upper corner of my chest , he told me to take 1 capsule orally and to apply 1 capsule on stretch marks ... is it safe and effective ... please help ## Hello, Vishu! How are you? Evion is just a vitamin E supplement, it isn't going to do anything for stretch marks. There's no harm in it, it is a nutrient that your body needs, but it isn't going to get rid of them. Is there anything else I can help with? ## hey verwon , howz u buddy .?? If this thing is not useful for this purpose , can u please tell me any other way to get rid of stretch marks , if u know one ....

Weaning off pristiq
I just wanted to tell all of you trying to get off pristiq, its possible. I was on pristiq for severe panic attacks for 6 months. It saved my life. It gave me a chance to slow down my career, gave me a huge wakeup call. This drug put a cloud over my brain. I was not my happy, fun loving self. I was like a step ford wife. You cant wean off this pill. I was on 50mg. I did every other day for a month. Every third day for two weeks then cold turkey. It really was not so bad. I layer on my couch for three days, cried a bit and watched movies. I'm happily on all holistic medications, no longer a slave to pristiq. If I can beat anxiety, anyone can. My biggest advice.. Exercise. Next, surround yourself with positive people. Three, talk out your problems. Good luck. ## Fantastic advice and v...

blue green unmarked capsule
The capsule is blue/dark green with a brown kinda pink looking powder on the inside. It is also unmarked with kinda circle intentions in the middle. Does anyone know what kind of pill this is? ## Hello, Samantha! How are you? If there are no markings, it is most likely an over the counter product, of some type. So far, I've been unable to find anything that matches this description, however I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else have an idea of what this is? ## Hi my.

Accutane and Infertility
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

Hi I'm 26 with 5 kids. After my 3rd in 2010 a mri showed 4 bulging disks and a pinched nerve down my left leg. Was on hydro 5 5 ml a day naproxen a muscle relaxer an physical therapy. I became pregnant so I stopped everything. I lived in az at that time now I'm in tx. The pain has gotten so bad it's hard to care for 5 kids. I don't have insurance and I don't qualify for Medicaid. I can't afford insurance so I have carelink which a payment plan cause I'm poor. Saw my Dr today she won't do a mri unless a xray shows something. She will only give me naproxen and physical therapy. I said what pain meds will she give me for physical therapy she said nothing. I have 5 kids therapy will kill me with no pain meds. She said I can see another Dr there but they don'

Generic Adderall Coupon
Looking for a XR 30mg generic coupon ## Coupons are not available for generic medications, by the very nature of their being generic, they are usually cheaper than the name brand, even without coupons. Even for the name brand Adderall XR, there are no current coupons and the manufacturer has also discontinued their assistance program for it. Have you tried just shopping around to check prices at different pharmacies in your area? ## That response is 100% wrong. I have been on adderall for 9 years now and when i lost my insurance, i switched to generic about 5 years ago, and I have an internet coupon that I printed off and use as insurance and it knocks down the originally 80 something dollars to like 30 something depending on where I fill it. ## Can you post the link where you got the c...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

what happen when we get expired tablets
By mistake one of relations got vitamin E capsules(Tocoffer) ## Hi Ramesh, if u get something that has expired, u really shouldn't take it. ## The oil use in vitamin E capsules may go rancid and make you ill, once they are expired. So, Cats68 is correct, you shouldn't take them. Is there anything else I can help with?
