Pain Doctors in Portland Oregon
2 Replies RSS
I'm on here looking for a solid doctor from people that have had a good experience, as my PCP keeps telling me to go see a pain management doctor. I'm looking for a doctor that still prescribes 30mg oxycodone with no problems. I have 5 years of medical records and continued proof of taking oxycodone but can only get 15mg which isn't enough to make my pain go away. Please help me asap! Thanks {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Rob! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Technically, any doctor with their license to practice medicine could prescribe it, but there's no way to be certain they will, even if they are a pain management specialist. The only thing you can do is set ...

round white pill with g 65 on one side
1 Reply RSS
Little white pill says g 65on one other side is clear ## Hello, Joe! How are you? I think what you're looking at may be a stylized E. Can you please double check? It does resemble an angular capital G. If the marking is E 65 the tablet is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 2mgs of Clonazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

how many ibuprofen equals 30 mg oxycotin
1 Reply RSS
I took 1 30 mg oxycotin and felt better within the hr. How many 800 mg ibuprofen would equal 1 30 mg oxycotin?? ## I'm very sorry that you're in pain. However, the answer is none! These medications are not even comparable. Oxycodone is classified by the FDA as an opiate analgesic, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and is very potent. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. However, Ibuprofen is just a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. You cannot safely double up or triple up on the Ibuprofen, because that may result in overdose toxicity. If you require so...

ativan 2 mg, 4 times a day
1 Reply RSS
Can someone go immediately from 2mg of Ativan four times a day to Klonopin 3 times a day without horrible withdrawal? ## What is the dosage of Klonopin that has been prescribed? It is stronger than Ativan and someone would need 4mgs of it to be equal to the 8mgs of Ativan. The FDA classifies these medications as benzodiazepines. They carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

I RECENTLY PICKED UP MY SCRIPT AT PHARMACY FOR MY OXY 30S AND I GOT THESE BIG WHITE ROUND PILLS WITH IMPRINT R AND P ON ONE SIDE AND 30 ON OTHER THEY ARE NO GOOD IVE HAD TO TAKE DOUBLE DOSAGE TO STOP MY PAIN .WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCE IN THESE AND THE BLUE ONES ## Hello, Tank! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. There can be slight differences in the amount of the active ingredient between one generic and another. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, they are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20%, however, they don't have to measure against each other, so the other one you were taking may have had a little more Oxycodone in it and this new one might be a little low. Since the differences are small, your body will usually ...

Anybody else with these issues

Been on Linzess 145 for 2 months. Was having lots of allergy issues-hives and itching on scalp, runny nose, sinus pain, extreme fatigue. Also shortness of breath and heart palpitations. Hadn't had major allergy attack in months but thought that was what was going on. Steroids, inhaler, Benadryl no help. Started paying real close attention to symptoms and realized I never woke up with hives, they always appeared sbout half hour after Linzesse was taken and improved by end of the day. Stopped taking it and 48 hours later no hives, itching or sinus symptoms. Still dealing with fatigue. It did helps constipation problem although I came real close to more than one accident. Not worth the side effects. Has anyone else experienced any if these symptoms? ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? I...

What is the dosage for this pill 1 or 2 pills at a time? ## Hello, Max! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Major Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containg 400mgs of Guaifenesin. The FDA classifies this as an expectorant that is available over the counter. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, kidney stones, diarrhea and vomiting. The directions provided by the FDA also list the dosing as being one tablet every 4 hours, as needed, not to exceed 2,400mg daily. Is there anything else I can help with?

Toxic or Lose of Potency?
1 Reply RSS
I have not had a UTI since 2011 and have recently moved. Not having a new doctor yet, besides the fact of being snowed in, and I know this is the beginning of a UTI, can this Rx be taken? Does it become toxic or just lose it's potency? It would help until I can get to a doctor on Saturday. ## Hello, BeeGee! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the UTI. No, Phenazopyridine is not known to become toxic, once expired, but it does start to lose potency, as do all medications. Thus, it would be best to obtain a new supply. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, fatigue, headache and discolored urine. Is there anything else I can help with?

sprintec and pregnancy

My depo shot just ended . I got it o December 8th, 3 months would make March 8th. If I were to be pregnant and didn't know and started taking Sprintec, what would happen to the baby? ## Hello, Candace! How are you? It would be best to check for pregnancy, before starting the oral contraceptive, if you have reason to suspect that you might be pregnant. However, oral contraceptives will not end an existing pregnancy, if you start them and are pregnant. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, breakthrough bleeding and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?
