How to get off Suboxone
Im Marina Im 24 years old and a mother of 2 beautiul little boys. From the years 2006-2007 i was heavily addicted to Oxy 80 and eventually started doing herion. I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's. In June 2009 i was completly off of the methadone that first day that i was on 0Mgs I went through extreme withdrawls i went through things that i would never wish upon my worst enemy! i stayed that way for a day and a half and decided to go to a suboxone doctor. He put me on 32 mgs a day which i thought was pretty high of a dose but he explained to me that methadone withdrawls was worst then any other withdrawls. so i trusted him. Now when i go to see him every month i pretty much beg for him to start the weinin...

Lost voice
I've lost my voice from using Symbacort for one month. How long will it take to get my voice back after discontinuing the Symbacort? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you doing? I am sorry about the problem that you've experienced. It may take a week or two, for things to return to normal and for your voice to be back. Have you informed your doctor? You'll likely need to try a different medication.

Amneal oxycodone (generic percocet) 10 325
Amneal's oxycodone, generic for percocet 10/325 is white, oblong, blank on one side, and imprinted with IP 204 (not IP 203)! I usually take Watson or Mallinckrodt, 10/325, (2) tablets every 4-6 hours (240 monthly), but I was given Amneal today when filling my script, and I am not happy! I have cancer, and I also take morphine sulphate 30 mgs as well (1 every 12 hours), and Fioricet with Codeine for severe migraines (as needed)! I do not feel Amneal is sufficient or even close to the chemical makeup as Watson or Mallinckrodt for controlling pain/chronic pain! Amneal does not act the same way on my body, and I should not have to take more for same result! I think when you pay cash for your medications, and have been on the medication for 8 years, using the same pharmacy, they should o...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
i was taking 300 mg neurontin . 1 in am 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which effects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system. Thank You ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned t...

Secondary withdrawal bleed?
So I don't have periods. I have pcos and my GP prescribes medroxyprogesterone to shed the lining of my womb at least once every three months. I take one tablet a day for 12 days and then I have my withdrawal bleed which is basically a normal 5-6 day period. I will not take any more tablets until I want to have another bleed but 2 weeks after my withdrawal bleed I have another period. I'd love to know why? Anyone?

Any docs in Montana who prescribe methadone ?
We are sick of Las Vegas and are desperate to move. Does anyone know a state or doctor where there is snow and mountains and doctors who prescribe methadone ( an opiate not opioid ) for chronic pain. I'm 63, not in the addiction category, nor the selling my scripts category....just getting old. My 87 yr old mother was thrown out of her wheelchair down some outside cement steps face first & I put my body between her & the pavement knocking all the curves out of my spine. Interested in Montana since Colorado refuses narcotic treatment. ## Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a pain management specialist if you require such a medication on a long-term, ongoing basis. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit...

I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. Tramadol is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

What the difference in the yellow Norco 10-325mg and the white Norco10-325mg ## Hello, Fred! How are you? They are just manufactured by different companies, which is common with generic medications.

percocet & cyclobenzoprine false negative
Can percocet or cyclobenzoprine cause a false negative pt? I am 41 days since my last mc. Had a blood test done at hospital a few weeks ago and took a hpt satuday both negative. Could I be pregnant still? Have all symptoms ## Hello, Shantelle! How are you? No, neither is known to cause that. However, if you are very early in your pregnancy, the hormone level may be too low to be detected, or you may not be producing enough of it. Have you consulted your doctor? They can usually tell by doing a pelvic exam.

30 days of pills, 31 day waiting period to refill. It doesn't add up.
I am arguing with the Dr, Ins Co, and Pharmacy... Apparently none of them have enough brains together to understand simple math nor a calendar. The situation... My dad is on nine different medications. Seven of them he takes once a day. The other two he takes twice a day. The doctor will only write prescriptions for 30 per month for the once daily and 60 per month for the twice daily. My dad suffers from blood pressure & heart trouble, diabetes, depression and a history of TIA's & a stroke. He was in a long term care/rehab facility for about a year and they always made sure he had his meds. He was discharged from the facility on Dec 31, 2013 and they gave us medicine to get him through the next two days (Jan 1 & 2, 2014). I had his prescriptions filled on Jan 2. He start...
