gabapentin 100mg capsule. Nerve pain and Anxiety
2 Replies RSS
The Dr. Thought this would help with my nerve pain and anxiety I have been taking it for 3 weeks and have gained 6 pounds and it has affected my legg strength and how much I can walk should I quit taking it. I am a 68 year old woman. ## Hi Bev, Sorry to hear about the Gabapentin not working as intented. But I wouldn't stop taking it without talking to your doctor first. According to NIH.gov, if you were to suddenly stop taking it, you may experience withdrawal symptoms (such as anxiety, insomnia, pain, nausea, sweating, etc.) as a result of not tapering. For these reasons it's probably best to work with your doctor on gradually decreasing the dose over an allotted period of time (NIH recommends at least a week). I hope this helps! ## David thank you for your input but I already ...

New Generic 30 Mg Adderall Xr (all orange w/ R 3061 on them ) Not As Effective
65 Replies RSS
please share your experience with this never seen before, less effective drug that two different pharmacy's have given to me in last two months. they make me fall asleep! ## Hi shaun, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they're both Adderall Xr), due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Although I haven't taken this medication, I can say that they probably have an array of...

Fentanyl Patches Killing people!
42 Replies RSS
I would like to know WHY the FDA has not taken the Fentanyl Patch off the market? This drug is being handed out like candy. Anyone who is not terminal or under Hospice care or in a hospital invironment should not be using this drug. Why would a person be prescribed a medication that is 80 times stronger than morphine for a backache. I do not believe patients know how powerful this medication is.The warning should be labled in RED. When are you FDA going to realize This medication is killing while relieving pain! I know because it killed my son. ## Very sorry to hear that you lost your son, from use of this medication. As to the warnings, those used by the FDA are black box warnings, to alert people to serious risks. While it can be dangerous, since it is so powerful and often abuse, it ...

Nasty treatment from doctors
2 Replies RSS
I was just kicked out of a Suboxone program. Get this, I had been going for ten months. I sailed thru treatment. Star was the word my counsel said. I got thru phase one, I got thru phase two. Low and behold in phase three, I scored a job. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. The trouble began when I was offered a very lucrative position. That's right this uneducated junkie actually was moving mountains. I started working mad amount of hours. So I went to program and said look. I need to be able to not miss any work over these appointments, at work they were cutting personnel. So I said bear with me for the month of February. For at work it was all a numbers game, now mind you I have sailed thru this treatment. So every time I saw my suboxone doctor he would say why are you missi...

how much MS Contin to overdose
2 Replies RSS
I was wondering how many MS Contin 30 mg pills would it take to overdose a 100 pound female that has a high tolerance for pain pills. All kinds. ## Dear Coon lady, It's difficult to tell if your intention actually IS to overdose... OR if you're just trying to be extra cautious about taking too many at once and over stepping your boundaries due to having a higher tolerance? I hope it's the latter of the two. And if it is, my suggestion would be that you shouldn't take any more than prescribed if you're trying to play it safe. In the event that you do need something stronger to relieve the pain, that would be something to discuss with your doctor in more detail. I know there are higher doses of MS Contin available (60mg and 100mg respectively). But if none of that appl...

TRUTH ABOUT PAIN MANGEMENT AND WHY YOU CANNOT GET OPIATES
10 Replies RSS
I SEE MOST POST ON HERE ASKING FOR SOMEONE TO FILL A CERTAIN DRUG THEY NEED. WELL TIMES ARE CHANGING FOR MORE THAN 1 REASON. IT IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ANY DOCTOR THAT WILL TAKE A NEW PATIENT AND PRESCRIBE ANY ANY ANY, CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE. THANKS TO DEA, WAR ON DRUGS IS NOW IN PAIN MANAGEMENT. ALSO INSURANCE COMPANIES AND A RECENT STUDY, THAT SHOWED A PATIENT MAY DIE IN THEIR SLEEP IF GIVEN OVER A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TABS OF OPIATES IN A DAY. THIS IS A POOR EXAMPLE OF A STUDY. COULD BE 4 MG OR 1000 MG THAT IS WHY YOU NOW SEE ALL THE INSURANCE COMPANIES NOW PUTTING CAPS ON THE AMOUNT THEY WILL ALLOW YOU TO HAVE. THEY I GUESS ARE NOW PLAYING DOCTOR. THEY ARE MAKING IT HARDER AND MORE WORK FOR DOCS TO EVEN WANT TO PRESCRIBE CERTAIN MEDICATIONS. I HAVE BLUE CROSS AND MEDICARE AND NEVER...

1 month on Methadone
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking anywhere from 5 to 10 mg of methadone a day for about 1 month. I only take it once a day, and at the same time every day (at night before bed) for back pain. If I stop taking it cold turkey at this point, will I experience withdrawals? ## Yes, you will most likely still experience some withdrawal effects, such as nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea and rebound pain, as listed by the FDA. Methadone is very well known to be habit forming and to cause withdrawals, that's why many people that take t for addiction treatment end up requiring a lifetime maintenance dose of it and never truly end up drug free. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? ## No, I have not. I've stopped taking it, and after the 1st night I had hot sweats. Nothing else so far, but I'm...

Axiron & deodorant
11 Replies RSS
I use Mitchum gel and using it first then apply Axiron. It becomes like a glue. Trying Axiron first then apply mitchum worked better. I use a mini fan to aid in drying,but still an issue. What is the best deodorant to use with Axiron? ## I'm sorry, but there aren't really an recommendations made, they just not that the use of deodorant shouldn't interfere with it's absorption. I really think it may just be a matter of trial and error, to see what works well, without leaving you a gooey mess. Have you tried asking a pharmacist for recommendations? They may have some ideas from other users. ## I use old spice deoderant not the antiperpirant deoderant. I use a hair dryer to dry the deoderant then apply axiron. No problems with stickiness. ## I was prescribed Axiron for Low ...
