fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
i have post sirgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg pat. ch and had side effects ans so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from peroidic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistant restless leggs. it is driving me crazy. my doctor says that is not withdrawal. is he right? i don't think so. if it is withdrawal, what can i do about it and how long will it last? i am going crazy. ## Of course it can be from the withdrawal, your doctor might be surprised if he talked to some former addicts and learned the various things they suffered, when withdrawing from their drug of choice and you don't have to be abusing a medication for such things to happen.

percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...

weight gainer prescription
Hi, I am very slim. 5'2 and no more than 95lbs and that's pushing it!! I have no appetite and a very fast metabolism!! I cannot afford to buy any weight supplement over the counter. I don't have a doctor as of yet either as almost no doctor will accept patients who are on Oregon Health Plan!! Anyway, I am trying to find out if CB1 can be prescribed by a Physician or only available OTC? Also I need to know what prescription weight gainer pills are out there so I can research them for when I find a Doctor very soon. Thank you ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? There aren't any prescription weight gain medications, so to speak, there are some that may cause weight gain as a side effect, but they only do that as long as you're taking them and yes, the CB1 requires a prescript...

Zubsolv reviews
Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me.

Leg swelling on Xarelto
I have been on Sintrom for 6 months after an incident of DVT and last week I switched to Xarelto taking 20mg/day. Since then I have noticed slight pain and swelling to my leg. Is this one of the side effects? Apart from that no other side effects are noticed... ## Hello, KZ! How are you? Yes, Xarelto can cause edema and muscle pain as side effects, along with nausea and increased risk of bleeding. You should have the edema checked out, as it may require treatment, or you may need to switch to a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

Axiron application
All The Axiron Literature Says To Apply It Only Underarms. Why? Doesn't Other Skin Areas Absorb the liquid? ## Hello, Ron! How are you? The skin there is generally thinner, so more will be absorbed and that is also a safer place to use it in order to prevent its transfer to other people, since it can cause problems for women and children. Is there anything else I can help with? ## So the concern is contact with other people. Not so much that it is unsafe for the user to apply it anywhere. Am I understanding that correctly?

Child medication
Should a 4 year old take Astymin Liquid? ## Hello, Nathan! How are you? Was it prescribed by the child's doctor? Astymin contains 8 essential amino acids that our body can't make, we usually have to acquire them through diet or supplementation. If the child's doctor has said they should take it, then it would be best to follow their instructions. It may cause some nausea, when taken.

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

doctor prescribe adderall michigan
I'm also new to Farmington and need to find a doctor to refill my adderall. Could someone please help me? Thank you !!!' ## Hello, Rhodes76! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis. PCPs can no longer prescribe them. The best thing to do would be to set yourself up with a new PCP and then have them refer you to someone. That would most likely be the fastest and easiest way to get the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? This mediation carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, irritability and anorexia.

swollen lips reaction
proair Hfa ? causing swollen lips. How long does drug remain in your system. ## Hello, Maureen! How are you? How long had you been using it, when the reaction occurred? That would be a factor in how long it may last. And any time you have a severe allergic reaction like this, it is very important to see a doctor, because it may require medical treatment. You may need antihistamines and a steroid to bring the swelling down.

ANY of the side effects mentioned here are true and happen to almost anyone who takes this shot ! Unfortunately they do not know all the problems it will cause. I would never have another shot of Prolia again. You can do it at your own risk, but it's a gamble to do so. ## Sorry to hear about your troubling experience with Prolia. I don't know why, but these types of shots tend to cause a lot of undesirable side effects in most people taking them. The most common side effects I hear of are usually described as aching joints, back pain, and various symptoms associated with an allergic reaction (i.e - swelling, rash, itching). Hopefully more people will take some time out to do their research before committing to high risk drugs like Prolia. From a patient's perspective it can ...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...
