Medicine to become fat without side effect
Am 20yrs of age but i was fat but i have become slim i want to come back to my normal body ## Hello, Pinklady! How are you? Trying to get fat is really not a good idea, it's not healthy. Being overweight is actually very dangerous, because it places severe strain on your heart and lungs. Additionally, all medications carry the risk of causing side effects, you're not going to find any that don't. How tall are you and how much do you weight? ## I Am aged 26yrs i was fat but i have become slim i want to get back to my normal body but weighing 70kgs now which medicine is appropriate to use.

vitamin c capsules how to use
I opened 3 vitamin C capsules. Squeezed them into a little dish, with a probiotic emptied into the mixture as well. Had a breakout between my jaw/chin area due to 'that time of the month' .... will let you know how it goes! ## Hi Ashley, I've also heard that starting your menstrual cycle can cause acne around the chin/jaw area. So if you had a breakout it may not have been associated with the vitamin C capsules at all. I don't know if that's what you were getting at and were concerned by it, but thought I'd mention it anyways. However, regarding your query on "how to use vitamin c capsules", the typical method of administration is to simply take them orally as the directions state. But I do know you can also empty them into water a chug it take way too. I...

decilone forte side effects
everytime i take decilone i gain weight.and i love it coz i love to eat and i have good appetie..but my concern is that,is there any side effects in the future?please give me details of these side effects..tnx ## i like to gain weight and my friends told me to take decilone it ok?if i also take it togetherw/a multi vitamins will it be much faster for me to gain weight...thanks ## Decilone contains the steroid Dexamethasone. It is an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant, so using it just to gain weight is NOT a good idea, it can compromise your immune system and cause serious complications. ## side effects of decilone forte ## "If dexamethasone is given orally or by injection (parenteral) over a period of more than a few days, side-effects common to systemic glucocorticoi...

Drug Expiration Date After Fill Quetiapine Fumarate
When will 50 mg of quetiapine fumarate expire once the prescription is filled? ## Based on my research, Quetiapine fumarate has an expected shelf life of 36 months (or 3 years). However it's come to my knowledge from a Harvard Medical School family health article, that most medications can last up to 10-15 years without expressing many signs of degradation or loss in potency. So you shouldn't have any problems using it later down the road as long as it's stored properly. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Quetiapine Details I hope this helps! ## I was given a prescription of 100 mg seroquel in 2009 i stopped taking and have 1-bottle unopened still has safety seal on it. I was recently given a new prescription of same serouel from the same pharmacy my new meds...

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.

baclofen pump
who can fill and maintain a pump in the pensicola florida area ## Hello, La Donna! How are you? The best idea I have for you would be to contact the pump manufacturer, they most likely have a list of doctors available just for people like you. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Baclofen rarely has side effects and actually helps muscle spasms it is not like Valium but you need to remember you may not feel it in your head but think are my spasms better Soma is addicting especially with Vicodin or Alcohol addicts call Codeine and Soma a Coma . Baclofen is one of the safest efficient muscle relaxers I know of but REMEMBER we all are different have different pains got the pa...

Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple...

i was taking oxycodone 10mg pink k56 pills and then my doctor swiched me to norco do they have the same ingredients
Does norco 5/325 have the same ingredients as the little pink pill k56 which is oxycodone 10mg. My doctor swicth me due to the strength. The k56 pills are stronger he said and i needed a weaker pill to be able to work. So he prescribed me the norco. What im saying here is that are they the same but different doses? ## No, they are not the same. The Norco contains the narcotic Hydrocodone coupled with Acetaminophen. 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? ## what does kvk mean on my oxycodone 10 mg tabs bottle

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
my Dr prescribed Opana 40mg as alternative to Oxy 80 mg 2 twice a day which I would insufflate - I didn't tell him this of course. he claimed them to be just as good if not stronger can any one share about opana 40mg ## Inhaling medications that are not intended for that method of usage is very dangerous. You run the risk of overdose and creating blockages in your lungs, which can lead to breathing problems, embolisms and stroke. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, this is a potent narcotic pain reliever. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. THis dosage is about the same as what you were taking of the Oxycontin. Do you have any other questions? ## i was taking three oc 40's a day, when the new op 40's came out they seemed to...

has anyone taken generic addreall from aurobindo pharmaceuticals
I was scouting around for generic adderall from CorePharma , when i called Meijer pharmacy they said they carry Aurobindo. I've never heard of this pharm company before. Anybody taken adderall from Aurobindo? I alternate generic adderall from teva then corepharma. But since Dominick's grocery/pharmacy who carries it is now closed, I am having a hard time locating a pharmacy carrying Corepharma adderall. Any experiences from Aurobindo? I'd appreciate it.

pristiq and weight gain
I started pristiq approx 5 weeks ago and altho my doctor assured me that it was a weight neutral drug I have easily gained 12 pounds and right exactly around the middle. I have been very careful not to consume more calories and have even been more active. I am very concerned that the weight gain will continue or will it just become a side effect that the body gets used to and eventually levels out? I do feel so much better on the drug and this has been my only side effect. I have a small frame however, and a dozen pounds all in the same spot is hard to conceal especially in the warmer weather. If anyone has any thoughts on some solutions other than discontinuing the drug I would greatly appreciate the advice. I sure wish that all these antidepressants did not come with some major trade ...

which is stronger oxycodone 5/325 or hydroc10/325
have been prescribed both, but cant tell if one is stronger than the other ## 5mg oxycodone, according to the equivalence table I have in front of me, is equal to about 20mg hydrocodone. Therefore the combination drug containing oxycodone should be roughly twice as strong as the one containing hydrocodone. These drugs are only available in the UK in their pure form, not adulterated with paracetamol like yours. As I have written elsewhere, I really don't see the point of the combos. Unless you are suffering a fever, in which case paracetamol will ease the body temperature. But why take the non-narcotic unless you really need it? It is a very toxic and cumulative drug responsible for a lot of deaths. If I were you I'd ask for a prescription for 10mg hydrocodone without the apap. O...
