do you gain weight with suboxone?
Hi I'm just starting to research suboxone. I'm currently going to a methadone clinic every day and it is such a hassle. I have to get up every morning at 4am to be there in time to get to work the line is so long but that's beside my point, My real question is Do you gain weight with Suboxone? This is my third attempt at trying to get off of opiates by taking Methadone but every single time I start taking Methadone I gain 40 to 60 pounds within the first 4 months. Most people do, some don't I just happen to be one of them. I get so discouraged by the weight gain that I stop going to the Methadone clinic and then start using again. Sadly my mom died from using the same drug I used before treatment. I have 3 children and want to get my life together again but I just can...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

How long do Augmentin side effects last?
Hi all, Firstly a disclaimer, if you have just eaten and have a soft stomach, avoid this post. You've been warned. My dentist prescribed a two week regime of Augmentin for minor work that needs to be performed on a tooth. I finished the prescription one week ago. And I still have some odd side effects. Before I started taking this, I had a normal energy level where I could exercise and do my work, etc. Now I have wayyyyyy too much energy and even though I start to feel drowsy at my regular time when I got to bed, I can't fall asleep until 2 -3 hours later. The other effect I've been experiencing are dry lips. This is annoying. There is no change in saliva and my mouth is just as moist as before taking Augmentin. Also during the last three weeks it's been as my appetite h...

procedure of taking trust pill
can i take the trust pill after my menstruation bec as ive search in internet there says u must take the pill on the first day of mens but my firend told me after the mens so tell me pls im confuse bec i want to use trust pill so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month. Are there any comments or questions? ## can i use trust pill as a quick start? Its been two weeks ago since i got my monthly peri...

np 14
Np 14 Supposed to be equal to 20 mg of Oxycodone /Roxicodone. I just got the script for them and they are terrible. I've been on oxycodone/Roxy for 15 years and can totally tell from the first pill I took that something was wrong with these pills. They make me feel worse. There is no way that these pill are what they claim to be. First of all they make it almost impossible for people that do have legitimate reasons for taking this medicine, impossible to get filled in the first place. Then they give us this bogus medicine,that these companies are making millions and trillions of dollars off of us and it's not even real medicine. This can't be legal! Can it? ## Hello, MrCushmann! How are you? I am very sorry that this tablet didn't work for you. However, it is a legal FDA...

This month my husband is in US me not try for conceive my monthly period cycle supposed to be on 9th of oct this month but still not got my monthly period cycle. let me know what is the reason and what is the effect of this capsules. ## Hi Sunitha, Based on my research, Natural Micronized Progesterone is a type of the hormone called Progesterone; which is derived from plants and is basically the same as human Progesterone. This type of Progesterone is different from the synthetic forms in birth control and many forms of synthetic HRT (hormone replacement therapy) used for menopause.

too much klonopin???
I am prescribed 1 mg klonopins 2 times a day. Due to uncontrolled panic anxiety I've been having, I took four mgs this morning and another 4 this evening.... Now I'm finally calming down... A little late to ask but is that too many mgs in a day??? ## Dear Jubb, Yes, that was a bit much 2 take. I have anxiety and panic attacks and, I'm also on klonopin. I know there's some days when u feel u just need more. What I would do is talk 2 your Dr and let him know how u have been feeling. I was going through a tough time awhile ago, and, my Dr increased my klonopin. I know how u feel, but, u don't want 2 hurt yourself either.

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...

ACID REBOUND and Rebamipide Mucosta
after stopping meds omeprazole 20mg twice a day which i took for 45 days, i suffered from acid rebound, severe burning sensation in stomach i never felt before after i was told by a gastroent to stop taking meds. he put me on mucosta 3x a day for 7 days and asked me to come back if symptoms still there. is mucosta safe to take 2wks and wont cause any complications? ## Why were you taking the Omeprazole? If it was to treat a specific condition, such as an ulcer or GERD, then 45 days is a really short time to be on it, most of these medications are used for at least 3 to 4 months. Did he say why he wanted you to stop taking it? Acid rebound is always possible, when you stop using these types of medications abruptly. The Rebamipide is an amino acid derivative, that is used to mucosal prote...

However, if you're hunting for a new doctor by asking if they'll prescribe it, the problem is likely just going to continue. Doctors will view that as being drug seeking behavior.

doctors who r afraid of doing their job n prescribing patients the correct meds that work
Where r doctors who hve the balls to give scripts that work? Where day 30s b??? Stop hiding docs n do ur jobs..... ## It's not the doctors nor the drugs. It's the drug addicts and dealers is as to why ppl who needs meds for real reasons can't get them. Plus in state of Virginia, all doctors now have to meet with the DEA every six months and go over every patients charts to see if that person needs prescribed meds. That patient must undergo a full pain evaluation once a year for DEA. If their problems, illnesses don't meet certain criteria then dr. has cut them off that drug or lose their lic. ## There are only a few doctors left to prescribe strong narcotics.
