How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone
How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone so i dont go into precipitated withdrawals? ## You have to be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, before you can safely take Suboxone. Learn more Suboxone details here. The precise time that happens can vary from person to person, depending on their own body, how much of the given drug(s) they were taking and other factors. It's a very fine line, because taking it too soon can throw you into withdrawals, but you have to be full in them, before it's safe. Are there any other questions or comments? ## how long does it take oxycodone to be metabolized by the body after taking 10 mgs one time. ## I'm taking suboxone can I take a 15 mg of morphine I took it befor the sub and only asking because I still ne...

calci block/ tumeric
Is it safe to take tumeric caps with lercandipine 10mg? ## Hello, Edith! How are you? I'm sorry, but the Tumeric is a supplement, not an actual medication, so it has not been evaluated for possible interactions with actual prescription meds. Have you tried asking your prescriber? They may know more. Are you on any other medications? ## Thank you so much for the reply Verwon. Am on Leracandipine 10mg and Omeprazole 20mg. Have just started with the Tumeric caps - 1 daily cap of 400mg. Had a blood test and liver enzymes were slightly elavated so trying the Tumeric to see if it helps bring them back to normal. Also using the spice in some meals. Tests to be repeated in 8 weeks. Regards Edith ## Hi Edith, from what I'm seeing Turmeric should be taken with caution if you are on any dr...

i have been using norilet 400g for about 3 days and i have all the side effects just want to know what to do to get rid of it. i have stopped using the pills and stil have the side effects ## Hello, Lexy! How are you? This is an antibiotic and side effects can occur, while taking it, but that is normal and to be expected. There's really nothing you can do to get rid of them, it can happen with any antibiotic. However, you do need to finish your course of treatment with it, to fully eradicate the infection. How long ago did you stop taking them?

how early after using oralcon f
Hey ive recently started using this contraception just as my period ended, im on the last two pill and I had intercourse; can I get pregnant ## Hello, Judine! How are you? Regardless of when you started it, if you'd taken 7 active pills in a row, without missing any, then you were protected. So, if you didn't have intercourse until almost the end of the pack, you should be fine. Is there anything else I can help with?

Sudden Withdrawal from Neurontin
I have been taking 600 mg of Neurontin 4x a day for about 2 years and recentlty ran out of this medication due to excrutiating slow service from mandatory mail order RX company.... I was extremely agitated during this time (approx. 5 days), nervous, stressed out, etc. Has anyone else had these symptons as a result of sudden withdrawal from Neurontin? I can't understand why this happened, I felt so scared and lousy for that time. Is this a known reaction for this med? I haven't been able to find an answer. I take it for relief from carpel tunnel syndrom. Thanks ## Almost any med, or substance, even you morning coffee, will cause some withdrawal symptoms when you have been used to having it in your body for awhile, and suddenly stop taking it. Did it ease when you finally started ...

femiane birth control when to start taking the pill
Jus start taking the pill yesterday as told to start wen my period starts....I would like to know if I should have taken it when I saw the spotting or before I actually saw the while am on this pill an if am to tame wen my periods should my flow still b coming an this heavy ## Hello, Gena! How are you? For it to be effective immediately, it should have been started the first or second day that you say any bleeding. If you started it the third day or later, then you'll need to take it for a full 7 days, before it will become effective at preventing pregnancy. That means a backup form of contraception must be used for the first 7 days, you will be protected on the 8th day. Is there anything else I can help with?

oralcon-F pills & possibility of pregnancy
Would I get pregnant if I take an oralcon-F pill 9 hours after intercourse? I am taking the pill for the first time. ## Hello, Maxie! How are you? They will not prevent pregnancy if taken after you've had intercourse. For these to prevent pregnancy, they need to be taken every day, regularly, so they can prevent ovulation. If you wish to prevent pregnancy after having had intercourse, there are emergency contraceptives available that can be taken. Is there anything else I can help with?

Where to go in southeast Ky or New Tazewell TN to get pain meds
I have been unable to go to the doctor for over a year. I do not drive and rely on my daughter to take me. She had been living out if state. I was on high pain medication (oxycodone/roxicodone, morphine and Xanax) before. At this point, any pain medication would help. But I don't know what doctors to go to now and so many will not write pain medication. Can someone please help with suggestions on who to go to? I would even travel to Knoxville if needed. I had a doctor there before. Please help ## Can someone please give me some info?
