labetalol hcl
I started with 100 mg twice per day of labetalol HCl. I immediately became so dry that I couldn't talk without a bottle of water. My doctor cut dosage in half and added Benicar to the cocktail. I had an allergic reaction to benicar. It was replaced with 40 mgs. of lisinapril. Not strong enough. Need any suggestions. ## Hello, Belle! How are you? The dry mouth from the Labetalol will usually wear off after a month or so, once your body gets used to the medication. It annoyed me, at first, too. However, having been on it for awhile now, it is no longer a problem, at all. So, if it was helping your blood pressure, then you might want to go back to a higher dose of it and just wait it out for awhile. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension. Is there an...

north dakota
im in texas and have been on methadone for 9 yrs and its not looking good to get my methadone in williston, mabe a dr cause i see North dakota is the only state that does not take methadone clinics help please ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? If you require it for addiction/maintenance treatment, then a clinic is your only option. A private practice doctor is not allowed to prescribe it for that. And yes, North Dakota does have Methadone clinics, as well. This 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

tissionex pennkinetic
I need a discount coupon for tussionex pennkinetic ## Hi Olivia, How's it going? Just wanted to let you know that MedsChat also offers a free Rx Savings Card that can be used at over 60,000 pharmacies across the US. It reportedly helps you save anywhere from 15-75% off your prescription. You can view/print more details in the link below: Some manufacturers also offer patient assistance programs to help cover the cost of your medication, for those who meet certain income qualifications. That may be something to talk with your doctor/pharmacist about on your next visit. Hope this helps!

ganaton od substitute for ganaton in Us
My wife who came to US from abroad is using Ganaton which is not available in the US. Please indicate a substitute. Thanks. ## Hi Adam, Ganaton Od reportedly contains the active ingredient Itopride Hydrochloride (150mgs); which is used for treating symptoms of chronic gastritis. If your wife mentions this to her doctor, he/she will surely be able to suggest and/or prescribe an alternative that should be suitable for her. There are several types of medications that treat similar symptoms, such as an antacid or proton pump inhibitors. But based on my research, treatment of gastritis depends on the specific cause. And this is something her doctor needs to determine in order to prescribe the appropriate treatment option. I hope this helps!

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

I was worried about the side effects but I took for 2 weeks and then I got flu like symptoms, a sinus like headache, and stomach pain. The Dr said I did not have a fever and saw no reason to prescribe an antibiotic. Sadly I also did not see any improvement in anything like my Shortness of Breath so I decided to stop. My question is: Has anyone had a headache from this drug and if so did it move from one side of the your head to the other. Mine seemed to be a sinus type headache and was to be over my left eye first and now over my right. I do not have any current sinus issues. Anxious to hear anyone's experience with the headaches. ## Hello, Denny! How are you? Headaches are a known side effect of this medication, along with cough, diarrhea and joint pain. What other medications do y...

Dilaudid and Percocet
Hi, I have chronic pain. I have Interstitial Cystitis, have chronic pelvic pain, shoulder pain, neck and back pain, etc. I am a 45 year old woman who has had 4 children so you'd think that I would be able to handle pain. However, I cannot. At 5'9" tall, I only weigh 115 pounds so you'd think that pain meds would hit me like a ton of bricks! They don't. I have a very low threshold for pain, but a very high threshold for pain medication or just medication in general. For instance, I had a hysterectomy two weeks ago. Before the surgery I was given Versed. Versed does NOTHING for me. I told the Anesthesiologist but he gave it to me anyway. It does not cause amnesia in me like it does in most people nor does it have a sedating effect. So he then gave me a dose of Fentanyl...

what is nitrofur macr 100 mg used to treat
Just finished 500mg amoxicyillin for tooth infection. It's still here, but now also have a UTI. Prescribed macrobid 100mg. I'm now concerned that I have a major infection brewing. Will this help? ## Help, Mich! How are you? It is most commonly used to treat UTIs. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. There's a chance that some bacteria just traveled through your digestive tract from your mouth to your bladder, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a major infection. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the prompt reply! Yes, I think some of the bacteria did travel. I guess what concerned me is that I got the UTI while already taking an antibiotic. I just hope that the macrobid will do the job for all of ...

ER 20mg Opana
May of the year, I started the Opana ER 20mg and for me this has been wonderful. I was only able to afford oxycodone prior to the start of insurance in May. Been fighting a crazy battle with the oxycodone pain relief, cause the pharmacy keeps pushing KVK Tech product that doesn't work for me and has side effects. With Opana ER 20mg as my primary pain relief and Oxycodone 10mg for breakthrough pain, I am finally adjusting where I can function, which It has been a long time. Several years ago when I first started with oxycodone 30mg, life was good because I could function and then my local pharmacies started slipping the KVK products in on me and life became awful. Have heard that some people find the Opana makes them very sleepy. Lucky but so far I haven't had a problem. ## Hi Su...

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...
