Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

what happen when we get expired tablets
By mistake one of relations got vitamin E capsules(Tocoffer) ## Hi Ramesh, if u get something that has expired, u really shouldn't take it. ## The oil use in vitamin E capsules may go rancid and make you ill, once they are expired. So, Cats68 is correct, you shouldn't take them. Is there anything else I can help with?

I need help finding pain management in Little Rock Ar. I was told of new laws now I have relocated back to AR
I have relocated back to AR. My PCM put in a referral to see my old Pain Management Doctor. I waited to hear back from the Pain Management. While waiting I went through severe pain from a spinal tap. I was able to see a Neurologist after a blood patch. He sent me to a Pain Management Doctor. I explained I was waiting for a certain Pain Management Doctor who was familiar with my diagnosis. I went ahead and saw the neurologist pick for PM. Long story short, I got the approval to go see my old PM Doctor. I left the Pain Management Doctor from the neurologist. I scheduled an appointment with my old PM that was treating me a few Years ago. The day before my appointment they said they couldn't see me bc I had already seen a PM in AR. I explained the situation, but apparently they said I brok

masturbation pain
I have been masturbating for about five year and like three times a year, but now when i masturbate i feel testes pain after masturbating, am scared, could it be that am about to develop testicular cancer? please tell me the truth. ## Hello, Timo! How are you? No, masturbation is not harmful, in any way. It's actually good for you and healthy. There is likely some other reason for the pain in your testicles and you should have it checked out by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Timo I had a similar thing happen to me but it was from doing it more than i normally do. I saw the doc and they sent me for an ultra sound just to be safe and thankfully found nothing. I think you should do the same, at least get a ultrasound of the testes to rule out cancer or anything...

Is 30 Mg Morphine Stronger Than Oxycodone
i am now taking morphine sulfate 30 mg er tabs, and oxycodone 30 mg ir tabs morphine1 tablet every 8 hours and 1 tablet of oxycodone every 8 hours.but when waking up in the morning i have these terrible bad headache. i almost have to vomit. is that to happen? thanks sharon ## Hi Sharon, To answer your first question, Oxycodone is said to be approximately 1.5x as potent on a milligram to milligram basis. So for each 30mg Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine. However because everyone reacts to these medications differently, it's almost like comparing apples and bananas here. Regarding side effects, drug interactions state that "using morphine together with oxycodone may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also e...

adco metronida and pregnancy
Hi,I took adco metronida tablet for infection. Prescribed to me by d doctor. I took it last week, this week I realise I am pregnant. Now will this drug have any effect on my pregnancy? I am worried. As I don't want any birth defect. ## Can i use adco-metronida 400mg if i am epilectic ## Hello, Bee! How are you? No, it hasn't been shown to cause harm during pregnancy, from what I've found. Marie, I would suggest checking that with your doctor, before taking it, because this medication has been known to cause seizures in some people, as a side effect. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Accutane and Infertility
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

doxytet concern
Hi! My doctor said I have PID and am now taking doxytet,ibumax and diclofenac. He never explain where I might have got it from. Will I be able to fall pregnant after the treatment? ## Hi Queen! PID is usually caused by an untreated STI. It can b treated. According 2 the CDC, 1 out of 8 women can have problems getting pregnant. When the time comes, if you can't get pregnant, I would c an infertility specialist. ## Thanks for the reply. I have been using protection since I miscarried a while back and have had regular check ups and pap smear. My left side of the womb has been vibrating for as long as I can remember(after miscarriage) and dr said it's just a muscle spasm. Can miscarriage be the cause? ## Hello, Queen! How are you?
