I stopped taking Synthroid and ended up in a coma
I moved from NC to CA a few months ago. I ran out of Synthroid (200 mcgs daily) and because I had moved out here due to a 28 year old son with a brain tumor my only concern was his well being. After 2 months without the med I could barely stay awake for more than 4 hours at a time. My hair feel out in clumps and I retained huge amounts of fluid. I barely urinated and became confused. Next thing I knew it was two weeks later on I was on a ventilator. I nearly died. I am a nurse...I knew better. Please, please, please....if your MD prescribes Synthroid after obtaining the proper labs take it AS ORDERED. It is cheap but if you can not afford it just tell your MD.,,,,,,sunworship

White Round Pill With 150 On It
above the 150 it have what looks like 3 triagngles on it ## Based on the description provided, I found your pill to be a brand of generic Solifenacin, called Vesicare. NOTE: the pill itself is noted to be a light yellow color (in the drug databases), but I can confirm that there are what appears to be 3 triangles above the 150 and blank on the other side of the pill. This medication is a urinary antispasmodic of the antimuscarinic class. It is used in the treatment of overactive bladder with or without urge incontinence. You can view a detailed description of the drug by clicking on the link below... Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## yes thats exactly what it looks like its white round with 150 on it and what looks to be 3 triangles above the 150

prescribed for headaches and tooth pain, works well but what's in it? ## I was wondering if you can tell me if supradol is a strrong narcotic? My fiance went to get dentures in Mexico and they prescribed him this medication. Thank you ## No, this is not a narcotic at all. The American equivelent to Supradol would be Toradol, which is just a strong anti-inflammatory. ## just today i had dental work done in mexico: an extraction and an implant and was prescribed supradol and clendix. I took one pill of each as prescribed and now have a lump on my left (same side as the dental work) quadracept which feels and looks like a muscle spasm. any comments? ## I had a tooth pulled and an implant placed. I am having pain. The dentist said to get suprodol but it's not cutting it. Can I take ...

pictures of pills with triangle imprint
a white thin oblong pill with a triangle like symbol ## There are triangle imprints used by several manufacturers, they are usually generic pills and there are far too many for me to be able to post pictures of them. What does the symbol look like? Is it similar to an hourglass? If so, that's the Ivax logo and they make many different generic products. Are there any other markings on the tablet? Like letters or numbers? ## Pink round pill with triangle with p inside the triangle on top /score mark/ 151 on bottom ## Hello.I am pharmacist from Poland, with large passion to my job...Today I found an oval ,white ,10mm lenght,6mm wide pill with imprinted on one side number 2 and there is a letter u,or n inside triangular ,more like shield of a knight shaped logo.

Morphine Sulfate 15mg
I have chronic back pain and nerve damage to my right side due to a car accident, The neuroligist said the damage is equal to being dropped 7 stories on my left side. Now he is prescribing Morphine Sulfate 15mg and I am worried about the addiction versuses pain relief ## I have been on Morphind sulfate for approx. 3 months now twice daily for back, hip and hand pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. It has helped my back and hip pain but not the hand. My biggest problem is that this drug is like swallowing cement, it is terribly constipating. I stopped it for several days just to see if I was, indeed, becoming addicted and the awnser is no. My physical therapist and other nurses have told me not to worry as long as I was in pain I would not become addicted. But of course we are all different...

suboxone michigan medicaid
Hi, does medicaid cover suboxone treatment. I heard the straight medicaid does, but molina, does not. I need this treatment. Im in Oakland cty. Any drs you know that can help me? Thx ## Hi Jazz, Don,t know if it,s covered or not. Have you tried going to the suboxone site and entering your area code to find sub drs? You could do that and call some of them and just ask and maybe you,ll get some ideas. Good luck Oh ya, Some Phyciatrists can prescribe subs too. ## I did, but only straight medicaid covers any dr. I go to a dr in 2 days. It will b a miracle if he can jump thru hoops. Also, im checking out PACE. They may cover 4 mths treatment. Ill check in and pass the news if true.

Accutane - long term low dose regime
Has anyone been on accutane for a long term low dose regime? I read that some people have take only 20-40mg/wk for like 20 years for psoriasis, eczema, and other skin diseases but not for acne. I think I even read someone using ultra low dose regime for oil control. I am considering this treatment. This regime is more common in Europe from what I read. ## What has your doctor advised? Accutane is very hard to get and use, in the U.S. and there is a very good reason for that. This medication contains the active ingredient Isotretinoin and it has been shown to be a severe Teratogen, so it can cause severe birth defects to any future children you may have. Learn more: There are other side effects it can cause that can also be permanent, such as alopecia and IBS. ## From My Experience...ACC...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Need to stop Tegretol side effects now.
I took 1 Tegretol (first time) today. I am dizzy, falling down, room is spinning. My daughter is getting married tomorrow. I need these side effects to go away now. I am also on Lamictal, Clonipin and Vyvanse. Can someone please give me any specific advice as to get rid of the side effects now. I would never be able to function at my daughter's wedding as I am now. ## Wow, Sarah! I am very sorry! Starting so close to her wedding was likely not a great idea. Did your doctor advise this? How are you feeling? How did the wedding go? There's really no way to get rid of side effects that fast, it takes time for them to wear off. ## My Son AK (6 yr) has been on Tegretol since his 3rd seizure attack (primary generalized seizure as per EEG) on June 18-2014. The initial dose has been pro...

Doctor willing to prescribe and help with pain in Minnesota
Need help finding a doctor that will prescribe in Minnesota. I have been dealing with chronic back pain for many years. Ruptures my L5-S1 disk and it keeps getting worse. In the past, I have been on Vicodin, percocet, etc, and my quality of life was much better. But that doctor left. Over time, pain came back more and more, exercise decreased due to pain, quality of life is low. Tired of dealing with Chiropractors and such, and docs that only say stuff like "try Advil". Need something to help with the pain, so I can exercise and get some quality of life back. I live in the Twin Cities. If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know! ## I am in the same boat but I am post SI joint fusion, fibromyalgia which most docs don't believe in yet a med was created for that........

Weaning off pristiq
I just wanted to tell all of you trying to get off pristiq, its possible. I was on pristiq for severe panic attacks for 6 months. It saved my life. It gave me a chance to slow down my career, gave me a huge wakeup call. This drug put a cloud over my brain. I was not my happy, fun loving self. I was like a step ford wife. You cant wean off this pill. I was on 50mg. I did every other day for a month. Every third day for two weeks then cold turkey. It really was not so bad. I layer on my couch for three days, cried a bit and watched movies. I'm happily on all holistic medications, no longer a slave to pristiq. If I can beat anxiety, anyone can. My biggest advice.. Exercise. Next, surround yourself with positive people. Three, talk out your problems. Good luck. ## Fantastic advice and v...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

I DESPERATLY NEED A DOCTOR.. in or as near as possible to Marion North Carolina, that will take medicade and will prescribe my pain meds. and clonazapham alond with my other meds. and not treat me like a criminal PLEASE! ## Hello, Nanna! How are you doing? I'm sorry, but due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require such medications on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see specialists for each related condition. For instance, pain medications will need to be prescribed by a pain management specialist and Clonazepam from another, a PCP can only write now for general medications, such as those for high blood pressure. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to the appropriate doctors? I...
