Oxycontin generic coming back?
I've been on Oxycontin for at least 10 or 12 years. I've always taken generic. Now I have to pay out of pocket $4500.00 a year for brand name because I can't get the generics. Does ANYONE know if generics are coming back? I still haven't paid off last years loan . I'll have to borrow again. I have had surgery again this year. Nearly died. (was in intensive care for 9 days. Drs. tried to give me moraphine. I have later stage COPD, my breathing got so bad. They called my family in because they thought I was going to die. They said they couldn't control my pain. I was blacked out. Don't remember anything. But they finally gave me oxycontin and I got better. I'm alive. But I am in so much pain I don't know if that's good or not. I can't afford any...

Out Of My Metoprolol What Can I Take Now
out of metoprolol (2 days take 1x day each day; can't get untii toorrow ## Hello, Since I am not your doctor, I don't feel comfortable telling you what medication to substitute for the Metoprolol until you receive your next dose. If it were me, I'd consider calling your local pharmacy to see if they have any brand name or generic metoprolol that they could supply you with until you can get your full prescription. For future reference, I recommend calling your pharmacy in advance to make sure you will have your next prescription filled and ready to go before you run out- I hope that makes sense! You can learn more about this drug on the page for Metoprolol Details ## help! I was put on Lisinopril 10mg. today and am currently taking Metoprolol Succinate 25mg. What does Lisinop...

Tramadol withdrawal terrible stomach pain
Hello. I have searched the web and can't seem to find a problem like mine while coming off tramadol. I have horrible stomach burning and pain that extends down both sides of my rib cage. It happened once before when I was coming off tramadol and you think I would have learned to stay away from this poison. Has anyone else had pain and terrible burning down both sides of their rib cage when coming off tramadol? This is day 2 for me. I am hoping it goes away soon ## I think it's safe to say that Tramadol withdrawal symptoms can be quite similar to the side effects of those who are still taking the drug. According to the mayo clinic, severe abdominal or stomach pain is reported to be a normal, but serious side effect of Tramadol (that should be reported to your doctor). I don't...

Watson vs. Mylan generic lorazepam side effects.
Been on Sandoz mfr. lorazepam for 10 years; no problems; no need to increase dose. Sandoz stopped mfr. Now, can only get these generic's & Actavis. Having lots of troubles getting results; either nothing or zonked. Anyone else w/any experience which mfr. is closer to Sandoz (since FDA approves up to 2% differences in generics).

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

medroxypr ac 10 mg too
Hello! I'm 25 and my doctor prescribed this medication for me because I've been having a four week long menstrual cycle. I couldn't wait for the bleeding to stop so I went ahead and took the first pill but after reading the side affects I don't want to continue taking this medication. The thing that's freaking me out is that on the label is says "do not skip doses or discontinue" does anyone know what will happen if I just stop taking it? Will the bleeding get worse? Please help!

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 ...

Found a cardboard package under 13-year-old's bed with three different colored series of pills packaged in it that you push through. The only thing written on them is the dosage (10 mg/20 mg/40 mg). The first ones are marked on the package as day 1 - 7 pink small oval pills, then days 8 - 14 oval just a little larger salmon colored pills, then days 15 - 30 are larger oval light green pills.

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Yeah, what is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend lab...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...
