Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

Can U Be Prescribed Roxicodone And Oxycodone The Same Time
Does anyone know if you can be prescribed Roxicodone and Oxycodone at the same time? ## U cant in Ky. But u can get Oxycodone & hydrocodone both. :) ## It would depend on the dosages and formulations. For instance, some could be prescribed an instant release Oxycodone for breakthrough pain and then a regular release or time released formulation for better and longer pain management. You can learn more Oxycodone details here. But it is the same medication, so you could not legally be prescribed the same dosages of the same formulation, at the same time. And as LadyM mentioned, you can be prescribed different narcotics, without issues, as long as the prescribing doctor feels that you have legitimate reasons for their writing for them. Are there any other questions? ## one is 30mgs of ...

ic gabapentin 300 mg bladder side effects
I take 100 ic gabapentin 3 times/day for sciatica. Now I find that my bladder leaks about once a week which is unnerving. Has this been reported as a side effect? ## Didn't give enough information about my bladder leakage. The leakage is small and occurs in my sleep. ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. This is not listed among the normal side effects, which may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and weight gain. You can read more on it here: Have you talked to your doctor about this? ## Have not talked to doctor about occasional bladder leakage while sleeping since starting Gabapentin. I would like to know if any other persons who take this drug have had this experience. Let me kinow. Thanks ## Having the same pr...

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

purple oval shape with score on one side and UPJOHN 90 on the other. ## I would like to know what this pill is ## Xanax 1 mg ## I received a shipment that was suppose to be 1 mg alprazolam(generic xanax) OH MY GOD- it certainly was not!!! I took one (keep in mind I have dealt with anxiety for years and for me it is cheaper to purchase legally over the internet.)

The other side had no writing, however, it was scored. If you find out. Let me know! Thank you, Alycia ## The Pill You Described Is In Fact A Generic XANAX 1mg. ( Alprazolam 1mg ).

Is Soma A Narcotic muscle relaxer
my doctor has told me that that soma is a narcotic and she does not want to prescribe it to me any more. I suffer from chronic back pain as well as muscle spasms. I have tried other muscle relaxers as well as anti inflamatories and none of then do not work. Soma is the only one I have found to work for me without making me sleepy. Any information you can give me i would really appreciate. Thank you, Dana ## No, it is not a narcotic. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, but it has been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. However, what you have to remember is that prescribing it is entirely up to your doctor, she is not obligated to do so. You also have the option of finding a different doctor, for any reason you choose. Are there any other questions? ...

fake xanax gg249
recd xanax from india with gg 249, blank on back. small and rectagular. Came wrapped in plastic wrap, no bubble packs or name. bitter taste. seem to make me a little sleepy but causing mild headaches. are these real ## Hi Sarah, Based on my research, if it's real, the pill imprint "GG 249" on a white rectangle-shaped tablet should include a few score marks that EITHER look like this: G|G24|9 (but also with a partial score above/below the "2"); and on the backside of the tablet there should be three full score lines that would divide the pill into 4 pieces (if separated). OR this: GG|2|4|9 (with no score marks on the back side) Another factor you can use for verification is the size of the tablet. Legitimate one's are reported to have a size of approx. 15.00 mm. H...

Been taking oval green 2x's a day for couple months. Now the pharm sent me blue oval 605, is there a diference or it doesn't matter in effectiveness? Also, are they ir, er, ect? N how could I tell, I looked everywhere ## The new tablets you received, with the 605 marking contain 1mg of Alprazolam, in a regular release formulation, so they are the same as the ones you were taking with the S902 marking. The only difference is that they have been manufactured by a different company. Learn more Alprazolam details here.

greenstone alprazolam 25 isn t it better than caraco s
I have been taking Greenstone Alprazolam .25 for a long time. Once they gave me Dava and that was awful. Now they gave me Caraco, and I am afraid to start it. I know Greenstone is Classified as A. How is Caraco classified? ## I'm not sure what you're referring to as the classifications. When they are manufactured to the standards as set by the FDA, all generics are considered equal and to be of top quality, so there is no rating system that's used for them. There can be some slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient, so a little change could be what's causing your problem, but your body will usually adjust in a week or so, since the different isn't significant. Or you could have a problem with some of the inactive ingredients, because they do cause i...

kvk tech oxycodone 30 mg
Regarding KVK Tech oxycodone 30mg / K-9 ...Garbage ! I have serious pain from two separate problems. Bottom line is Walgreens switched from Activis to KVK recently and I noticed the difference within one day, pain waking me more than usual and early withdrawal sensations. I should add that I don't misuse or abuse, all I want is pain relief. I'm fed up with fighting every step of the way to manage my pain (resulting from injuries sustained as a firefighter/ medic and a connective tissue disease) Thanks to the war on drugs and so many people overdosing, the government has the doctors and pharmacies all running scared, etc.. So people who are legit and truly suffering every day are screwed. Seems like they forgot about us. I wish these people AND the addicts/ abusers could feel wha...

watson hydrocodone pills which pharmacy carries them
i live in northern ky and walgrees quit carring watson brand and there new brand makes my whole body hurt, want to find what pharmacy's carry watson ## I am also looking for the Watson 10/325. All the Walgreens & every other pharmacy around here are out. They said they use a different distributor. If they order them they still can't guarantee that they will get the Watson brand since it all comes from the same warehouse or company. I can't take the substitute brand that everyone is using, it make me so sick & my body just aches from them. I live in Phx,Az. If you know a place that carries Watson Brand please let me know. I can't believe that an entire city of this size can be completely out. ## Yes Watsons are good usually small family pharmacies still carry them.

Which pharmacy carries Alprazolam MYLAN brand??
Hi, Surprisingly my body likes Mylan better than other brands. I have tried Greenstone and Sandoz and don't like any of them Last time I got Alprazolam was back in 2012 that CVS carried it.

pills leftover
Hi everyone My brother 48 years old underwent surgery and one of his kidney was removed due a large tumor attached to it. He is now on a drug called Sutent by Pfizer. This drug is extremely expensive. I came to know that this drug does not work for everyone and there are many people with tamperproof unused packages of Sutent and are willing to donate it to someone in need. I would really appreciate any help in getting this drug either as free samples or donations of the drug from people who have unused ones left. Thank you for reading this.

Difference in effects between medications
I had been taking Hydrocodone 5-500 (Vicodin) many years at the same dose when this drug was discontinued an replaced with the 5-325 (Norco) strength. I am still taking the same number of pills daily but after about three months I just do not feel like the new pills control the pain as well as the previous ones did. I know there is not supposed to be any different between the two other than the amount of acetaminophen is there anything else that might effect how the medicine is absorbed and how quickly it is? Any ideas would be appreciated, thx. ## Jerry, when you have a heneric, the amount of active ingredient may vary, the fillers also vary and this can make one slightly stronger or weaker than the other. If you have a generic that has 10 mg of a med, the actual amount may be 8 mg-12 ...
