Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
3247 Replies RSS
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...

pictures of a watson 3203

peach oval one line in back and watson 3203 on front ## Sorry, I am unable to find an image, but I can tell you that it is Hydrochlorothiazide 50mgs and Methyldopa 500mgs. ## so watson 3203 is not a pain pill ## I found these pills in my sons room he told me they where pain pills he got after his surgery ## No, these are NOT pain pills. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic, used to help lessen the amount of water and salt in the body to lower blood pressure. Methyldopa is also used to help lower blood pressure, but it works differently, it helps to remove certain chemicals and substances from your blood that can affect your blood pressure. This medication provides a combination of both of these drugs for people who need better control of their blood pressure. So no, there is no way he woul...

metoprolol & hair loss
108 Replies RSS
I have been taking 200 mg. a day for about 4 years. I thought it was a coincidence that I've lost 50% of my hair during this time because I am also going through menopause. I just found out that it is possible the hair loss is caused by metoprolol, so my doctor just wrote me a RX for a different drug. Will my hair grow back? It was very long, down to my waist, but I've been cutting it to compensate for the thinness. I just touch my head and lose a few hairs! Any ideas? ## I have been on 25 mg of metoprolol for 2 months and my hair is rapidly falling out. I have stopped taking it. Will my hair stop falling out? Is the hair loss that I have already experienced reversable? ## If your hair loss truly was caused by taking Metoprolol, then yes, your hair will all grow back. BUT you we...

Comparative & Medical Pain Scale What it means to you???
Post a Reply
Quick question that will be expanded upon later, Has your doctor or any medical professional ever talked to you about what each number on the 1-10 pain scale represents outside of the smiley faces you'll see posted on walls of the exam room? Has anyone ever told you that an 8 on that scale is equivalent to natural (no pain meds at all) child birth? Thanks in advance for your answers and opinions.

Effects of Althea Pills to menstrual period
1 Reply RSS
Hi! Its my first time to take althea pills. My OB prescribed it because of my PCOS and very irregular period. Just a few days ago, I have spotting. I thought i already have my period so I took my first pill, but then the spotting stopped. Can somebody enlighten me if it's normal or what? today, I experience headache and feels like to vomit. I am aware that these are the side effects. ## Hi, you mentioned you have PCOS. May baby ka na ba? I think its better if you'll ask your OB about your spotting that stopped. Yung akin kasi, nag-take muna ako ng Duphaston for 10 days twica a day and after that, nag-spot ako then tuloy tuloy yung mens ko. :)

where to get tramadol after Aug 14th?
33 Replies RSS
Since tramadol is becoming controlled in August, what are my options? I've always gotten it from web-based pharmacies due to not having insurance. please help!!! ## Tramadol is no longer able to be obtained online without a Rx in the USA. Other countries may offer their version of it but I'd be careful with that. Tramadol itself is a very inexpensive medication... if your Dr. writes you a Rx for it you'll find that is very inexpensive. ## Let me know if you find out anywhere else to order this. I dread running out of my tramadol...ohhhh mmyyyy ## If you really need it as bad as you say you do, I honestly think your best bet would be to go the legitimate route and see a good doctor who can prescribe this for you on a monthly basis. You can always save money on your script by ...

amox-clav

very large white antibiotic..I am on 875mg ## Basically, amoxicillin mixed with clav-something acid which just enhances the effect of amoxicillan, an antibiotic. Used for chest/skin/ear/throat infections.. ## Was given for severe swollen, kissing tonsils, with an absys on one, closed airway, swollen lymph nodes in neck, and accompanied by four day fever. two days on it and so far, feeling a bit better. ## The other ingredient is Clavulanic Acid, this is a generic for Augmentin. The Clavulanic Acid helps to prevent the growth of bacteria, while the Amoxicillin fights the infection that is already there. ## I have the flu or common cold....I have abottle cephalexin 500mg. The expiration date is 1/14/05. Will they be effective? ## Im on the 500mg and boy do they do some damage to you. they...

I recd 90 day supply of omeprezol. I noticed that they were pills not capsules. I looked up pill number. The medication in the bottle was OXYCODONE 5 mg/ acetomeniphen 325! This is seriously dangerous! Someone could have died! Pills were in sealed bottle marked.Sandoz. what to do? ## Contact the pharmacy and your local board of pharmacy.
