Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But They Are Conditions
77 Replies RSS
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...

Can dogs take Dilaudid
2 Replies RSS
Can u give ur dog dilaudid for pain he has teeth pain badly gonna be having all his teeth pulled very soon but he's in a lot of pain now and he ran out of his and I don't have the money to get a refill. And if he can how many MG's an old I give him......??????? ## I wouldn't recommend administering strong medication like Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) without first consulting your pet's veterinarian. However, from what I understand, the dosage is generally determined by the weight of your dog. According to wikipedia, the recommended dose of Hydromorphone for dogs is listed at 0.05 - 0.1 mg/per kg of body weight, to be administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously every 24 hours. Were you planning on giving your dog actual pills or going the IV route? ## In relation to giv...

Finding A good Pain Doctor in the VA DC MD area. That will help you out.
118 Replies RSS
Looking for a good pain Doctor that will prescribe Oxycodone. Its so hard working two jobs with no insurance, and trying to go to school as well to get my degree. I work for a moving company and install computers all day long. Always in pain Looking for A GOOD PAIN DOCTOR!!! WHO WILL PRESCRIBE OXYCODONE!! PLEASE HELP Preferably in the Northern Virginia AREA!!! ## There is really no way we could possibly have information on what a doctor will prescribe for you. In addition, going in and asking for a specific medication gives a doctor the impression that you are a drug seeker. In these cases, it is always best to let your medical records speak for themselves. In the D.C. Metro area, it is also very hard to find places that will do this, at all. I lived there for awhile and I know first ha...

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in long island
34 Replies RSS
I had a dr who was prescribing me 150 30mg roxycodone every month. He decided the past month that he no longer is writing them and is only writing subs. I cannot find a dr who will write me my script. Can anyone suggest anyone? ## Who was the doctor ## I'm sorry about the problem that you've run into. However, you're not going find a doctor to just write you your prescription, as a matter of fact, if you're contacting doctors to ask them about prescribing such a medication, they're all going to be inclined to tell you no and not even let you get in the door, because they consider that to be drug seeking behavior. Have you tried asking that doctor to refer you to a pain management specialist? ## i know plenty of drs in nj who prescribe oxycodone and other pain meds 2 ...

WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
74 Replies RSS
I HAVE GAINED 27 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS. WHAT CAN I DO OTHER THAN STOP TAKING LYRICA. ? SHOULD iI QUIT OR LOWER DOSAGE? I TAKE 2 DOSES PER DAY. ## It's difficult to say exactly what about a medication causes any specific side effect, in many cases there is really no way to explain it, but Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which is actually an anticonvulsant, so it works on brain chemicals. This means that it may be having an affect on something that stimulates the appetite, or slows the metabolism, so some people gain weight easier than normal, while taking it. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? You may need to start more closely watching what you eat, or up the amount of exercise you get each day. ## I can relate to the weight gain with Lyrica. When I first ...

Prepopik

Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste. You ...

Sulfameth Trimethoprim 800 160 Side Effects Tingling
3 Replies RSS
Started 1 tablet a day of Sulfameth Trimethoprim 800 160 about week ago. 4 days ago turned to 2 tablet a day. For the last couple of days I've got a severe tingling in my hips and abdomen, and also some muscle pain. Is it a typical side effect for this medication? ## It can be, but it may also be a sign that you are sensitive to this medication and continuing to take it could result in your experiencing more severe symptoms. Learn more Bactrim details here. When this happens, it's usually best to switch to a different antibiotic. I ignored those initial symptoms and ended up developing a bad allergic reaction to it a few days later. How are you doing now? Have there been any changes? ## I was given the medicine for an abscess on my neck. I'm on day 34 pills a day I'm won...

Mahacef 200 USAGE

sir i m suffering 4m severe cold...should i take mahacef 200????????? ## Mahacef contains the active ingredient Cefixime, which is a cephalosporin class antibiotic. And no, as an antibiotic, it will not be effective against the virus that causes a cold and if you use it improperly, you also run the risk of developing antibiotic resistance, which could create many complications if you do get an infection that requires an antibiotic. Common side effects to this medication may include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and skin rash.
