doctors willing to prescribe pain medication
Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

actavis norcos
To all ppl that has side effects of anxiety Xanax with your meds control that. Now the true brand of Watson Norcos are sold for 495 Prices went up and if your insurance don't pay for it they will give u generics or the pharmacy you go like CVS always gives generics ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, can be habit forming, so they may not be an appropriate choice for everyone. And the price on Norco, which is a narcotic analgesic, may also vary from one area to the next, plus your pharmacy is required to provide a generic first if you are insured, that is not an option that is left up to you. Are there any other questions or concerns?

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Hydrocodone Acetaminophen Norco 10 325 Mg
I'm recovering from my third back surgery. I can take hydroco/acetamin 10-325 mg tab with no stomach problems. However, when I take hydroco/acetamin 7.5-325mg tab Mallinc generic, I have severe stomach pains. The pharmacist says there is no difference except the 10 vs the 7.5. It it NOT in my mind, it's in my stomach & it really hurts. Can you clear this up for me? I will be very grateful for your attention. Thank you. ## Who manufactures the 10/325 tablet that you've taken? There can be differences in the inactive ingredients from one manufacturer to another and that can cause problems for some people that are sensitive. So, say for example that the 10/325 was manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, the inactive ingredients could be completely different from those that ...

How Come I Cant Find Viractin Cold Sore Treatment In Any Drug Store
Viractin Cold Sore Treatment was the BEST. I have suffered with coldsores for years. This was the best treatment I have come acrossed. A small amount of this product and no more coldsore. I haven't found an answer tomy question yet. Is Viractin still available over counter or do I need a perscription for it ???? ## I am sorry, but Viractin has been discontinued by the manufacturer. It contained the active ingredient Tetracaine, which was a topical anesthetic, so it really did nothing to shorten the duration of a cold sore, though the moisturizing effects of it could help keep them from drying out and cracking and bleeding. You may want to try a different over the counter product, such as Abreva, which contains Docosanol, it is an antiviral, which can shorten the duration of a cold s...

Discontinuation of Deseril
I have been taking Methysergide (Deseril) for 14 years as a preventative for migraines. It is the ONLY drug which works for me and I am devastated by the news that it has been discontinued. I am keen to try to find a source for some even if it is only to get me over the next 8-9 months when I still have to have three weekly infusions of Herceptin for the treatment of breast cancer. Herceptin gives me more headaches as one of its side effects so I really need my Deserils! Can any one help or if not is anyone in the same boat? Maybe not the Herceptin bit! ## Hi Rufabug, Sorry to hear about the headaches you've been experiencing lately. While it is true that the manufacturer Novartis withdrew it from the U.S. market after taking over Sandoz, I'm not sure what the case might be rega...

Find A Doctor In My Area Indianapolis Xanax And Pain Pills
I need a agood dr. that is persistant. One that will help me control my pain, and help control my very high anxiety... Please Help!!!!!! ## Hi Mike, Personally, I think if you suffer from any sort of anxiety/depression and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Xanax), usually your best bet is to see a psychiatrist, rather than a regular medical doctor. Reason being, is that they are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems and can also help you treat the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression, as opposed to covering up the feelings and emotions with medication. In regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or z...

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...

oxycodone hlc 15mg tab kvkt
Is there a difference in these and the Oxycoddone hlc 15mg tab mall? The ones I got this month has an M inside of a square/box. The ones last month was greenish and these are whitish. ## They have just been manufactured by different companies, as is common with generics. Whichever one your pharmacy has in stock each month can vary, depending on who was offering the cheapest price at the time they need to restock their supply. 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? ## i have a pill with an M box on one side and 15 on the other. this is supposed to be a15mg oxycodone pill and iswhite. are these just manufactured by anothe...

Pharmacist refusing to fill my script of suboxone. What do I do???
I wet to my doc 7 days early because of running out early. I took my new script to pharmacy and said, this is early so I won't be using insurance. My doc said you can call him if necessary. Well no one wanted to. They filled two per day for three days. On the third day I asked to fill the rest on insurance for the next day. I was one day early. When I called the next morning to have my daily two filled the pharmacy manager said no we won't be filling it for another 5 days. Go to the ER for your withdrawals but don't come here because I won't give it to you. Has this happened to anyone else???? ## If you run out of suboxone too soon- you might need to increase your dose? That way you won't have to worry about being out of it too soon. As for me- my doctor decided to m...
