I picked up my medication at my pharmacy CVS and it was a333 when I took the first pill I started felling cramps and headache... I called the pharmacy they offered no help so I went back to my doctor and got another script .I can't tell you how awful I felt like I was some kind of drug freak or something I had to have my medicine flushed once before because I was sick the entire time I was taking this point no matter what happens with my medication I'm sticking with it good or bad for fear she won't see me anymore..its not right to feel like you may be labeled a drug freak because you don't want to suffer because these drug companies don't do right by the people they are supposed to help. Anyone else feel this way?

Prolia and how it has affected me
Have had osteopenia for few yrs., recently diagnosed with osteoporosis in lower spine. First prolia inj. Nov. 2013 and felt good for a few months. Then UTI which I rarely ever had before - bladder feels tender all the time. I am now 76. Use treadmill 20 min when able and yoga stretches. Plan to increase exercises regardless and just rest often. After 2nd inj. I had severe reflux for several weeks, then abdomenal pain and bloating, bowel issues. Now Ive had a headache, jaw and face pain for several days. Stiff neck. Nothing has helped it. I suffer from hypothroidism,osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, so widespread pain is no stranger to me, but this is different. Keep pain Medications to a minimum. Wake up stiff for longer than usual. Currently taking ice packs to bed for burning hands and...

amount to take
Am taking 60mg per day, but still feel depressed. How high can you go withthis drug? ## Hello, Dee! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem you're having. 60mgs is usually the maximum dosage for this medication, it's not been shown to have any greater benefit in higher amounts. How long have you been taking the current dosage? It can take about 4 to 6 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in the body, so you know how well it is working for you. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes.

how long does it take to transfer methadone clinic from boston ma to honolulu hi
im moving in 30days and I need to guest dose first in washington state for 2 weeks and then me and my daughter will be moving again to hawaii and I need to know can I guest dose there until I transfer there? How long will it take for trandfer to go through? ## Hello, Jennifer! How are you? This is actually going to be up to the individual clinics, though it really shouldn't take long for them to receive your records and do the transfer. However, I would suggest asking those in charge at your clinic, I am sure they'll be able to give you a better idea of the time frame. 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?

Thankful for Chantix
I had took Chantix about 3 months ago and successfully was able to quit. So many people I've suggested it to have all of these excuses why they can't stop smoking or are worried about the side effects of others. I had absolutely no side effects I felt like throwing up 3 or 4 times for maybe a second but then it passed. I had virtually no side effects this is an amazing product. I smoked for almost half my life and I was able to quit within 2 weeks. Thank you ## I am on day 4 with the champix and find myself a bit afraid of taking the leap to a better non smoking me. Smoking has been a constant in my life for 23 years. I've never been successful in quitting before but am hopeful to quit now. I know that the emotional attachment is going to be the most difficult to overcome. M...

Oxycodone in Beaumont, TX
I just moved to Beaumont and need to find a good pain management doc willing to prescribe Oxy. I am already on Fentanyl patches, with a spinal stimulator, and that does not control the pain. Also, if docs here won't prescribe Oxycodone what are they alternatives that really work? It is the only thing that has worked for me that doesn't make me sick. I've been in constant pain for 3 months now. I'd prefer someone who takes Blue Cross Blue Shield.

MY HUSBAND HAD A STROKE IN 2007 AND HAS CONSTANT HEADACHES EVER SINCE. HE WAS PUT ON THE WATSON 932 AND AT LEAST TOOK THE EDGE OFF AND HE COULD DO SOME THINGS AROUND THE HOUSE. WELL ACTVIST BOUGHT WATSON PHARM AND WE WERE TAKING THE A333 AND IT WAS DOING NOTHING FOR HIM. THE PAIN WOULD BE UNBEARABLE SOMETIMES AND HE WOULD HIDE IN THE DARK BEDROOM FOR HOURS. WE WENT TO WALMART AND GOT A DIFFERENT BRAND WHICH IS IP 204 FROM AMNEAL PHAMACUETICALS. WE WILL SEE IF IT WILL WORK FOR HIM. ## Hello, Marcy! How is your husband doing? Are the new tablets from Intrapharm working better for him? 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.

if i run out of tramadol can take tylenol 3
I ran out of tramadol acer 37,5/325 mg can i take tylenol 3 until i can get to my doctor ## Yes, but Tyl 3 is a little bit stronger, so maybe cut it in half. Tylenol 3 is the stronger drug, with real opiates, just so you know.

pain management doctors in humble/houston texas
CAme here from florida got pain killers for my leg need to find a doctor here who isnt paranoid of a dea shutdown ## Hi, Matt! How are you? Unfortunately, they all have to be paranoid about that. New regulations were put into effect this year and any doctor that doesn't abide by them risks losing his license to practice medicine. Your best bet would be to establish a relationship in your new location, with a PCP, then have them refer you to a pain management specialist. Do you have a PCP, yet? ## Matt, did you ever find one? I am in Beaumont, and I too need to find a doc not afraid of narcotics. Moved here from Austin, and have a hard time finding a good doctor of nearly any kind.

doctors who will prescribe pain medication illinois
I have both chronic and acute headaches. I've taken everything. The only relief I ever get is through narcotics. No one will prescribe them so I've spent the last 10 years in bed, in the dark. I would really like to die because the pain is so bad. When it gets bad I'll go to the ER but they won't even help me. I also have a problem with my body making kidney stones. Please help. ## Hello, Rocky! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require narcotics on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. A PCP won't be able to prescribe them for you. Thus, you'll likely need to see a neurologist and a urologist. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to other doctors? If so, that would be the best w...

If you'd looked into it ahead of time, oral contraceptives can often be used to skip your period entirely, or to adjust when you get it, however, they need to be started before you're actually having your period to do so. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## i am 21 yrs old n my cycle is just started n I want stop it bcoz I have function there is any medicine to stop it for 3 days reply as soon it urgent

Pain Management in East Texas
Who is the best pain management doctor in the Beaumont area? We just moved from Austin, and after calling around, can't find a good one. For starters, they all tell you right off the bat they don't prescribe Oxycodone. What? Why reject a drug before you even know a patient's history or what kind of results they've had with it. Why does every pain doc in Beaumont have this asinine attitude, and what alternatives do they offer? (I am already on Fentanyl patches, with a spinal stimulator, and that does not control the pain). I'd prefer someone who takes Blue Cross Blue Shield.

las vegas pain clinic that accepts out of state patients
Looking for a pain dr in las Vegas or Los Angeles area that accepts out of state patients ## Unfortunately, that is not going to be possible, now. Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need an established relationship with a doctor to be prescribe anything and they're going to require that you live near where they practice. Pharmacies will also require that you live within a certain radius and the doctor be located within a certain radius to get anything filled. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...
