do you have to be on your period start sprintec
My doctor said to start sprintec the Sunday after my period started. I haven't had it yet and started them yesterday anyway. My period should be here soon. Should I wait to take the second pill until my period starts or just continue taking them? And if I should continue them, how soon would they become effective?

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...

Oxycodone in Southern California
My doctor prescribed Oxycodone 10 mg on the 21st of July; it's still not filled. I went to my regular pharmacy, Walgreens and I was told they don't have it, and should ask my doctor to prescribe something different. So now the pharmacist is a doctor? This medicine was prescribe by him because it was the best solution to my retractable pain of my spine literally dissolving which is compressing my nerves. I have three blown discs in my cervical area and three blown discs, one with a 9 mm synovial cyst in it, in my lumbar area which is causing Levoscoliosis. I called every pharmacy within my area and not one could help me. I was rejected by all until I called Costco. My roommate took it over, and the tech told her she needed to have the doctor put the ICD - 9 code on it. She took i...

FENTANYL 50 MCG/HOUR TRANSDERMAL PATCH
I WAS PRESCRIBED THE 50 MCG/HR FENTANYL PATCH FOR CHRONIC BACK PAIN & DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE. I WAS GIVEN THE PRESCRIPTION SEVERAL WEEKS AGO. I JUST GOT IT FILLED 2 DAYS AGO BECAUSE I'M AFRIAD TO USE IT. I HAVE READ ALL THE PATIENT INFO, RESEARCHED IT ON THE NET & TALKED TO SEVERAL PHARMACISTS AS WELL AS MY PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN. ALL OF THE PHYSICIANS & PHARMACISTS TELL ME THAT THE PATCH WILL HELP ME WITH THE DAILY PAIN. THEY SAY THAT THE PATCH SHOULD NOT CAUSE ME ANY HARM BUT THE ONE TING THAT'S STOPPING ME FROM USING IT IS THE RESPIRATORY SIDE EFFECTS & POSSIBLE OVERDOSE.

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
I'm trying to wean myself off the Fentanyl patch. I went from 75 micro-gms to 50 now I'm on 25. Having a problem and not sure it is related to the decrease in the med. It's been 20 days on the 25 micro-gm and I'm going crazy. I need to keep rocking, moving in any way b/c my body is very restless. Is this a symptom of withdrawal and what do I do? I cannot take it any more. ## Yes, that can be caused by withdrawal, you probably jumped down in dosage a little too fast. This med is very, very strong, 80 times stronger than Morphine and it has a half-life of 17 hours, so that means once you take off the patch, it takes 17 hours until it has dwindled to 50% off the full dose in your body, then it slows and actually takes 3 or 4 days before it is all out of your system. So if y...

ilvitrim suspension
Is Ilvitrim Suspension good for my HIV negative baby? The doctor prescribe it while she was having a short breath problem. Thanks ## Hi Fanyana, Based on my research, Ilvitrim contains the active ingredients Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim; a sulfonamide antibacterial combination that is used in the treatment of a variety of bacterial infections. (not just limited to HIV). If your child's doctor prescribed it for what appears to be an upper respiratory or sinus related infection, Ilvitrim does sound like an appropriate medication for the job. However if you're asking whether or not a powerful antibiotic like this is good for your baby, my personal answer would be no, due to it's high risk of side effects. In which case, I would personally consider other more natural alternat...

Want to taper all the way off Suboxone after 10 years
I want to taper off after ten years on suboxone. I've never taken more than 4 mg/day and I'm currently at .5 mg/day and struggling. Had no problem getting from 4 mg down to 1, but it's gotten harder recently as I've gone down from 1 to .5. Everything I'm reading makes me want to give up before going any further. Years ago I was able to taper off oxy little by little until I barely noticed the final step to zero. I've heard that's not possible with sub and that I'm going to feel terrible for a long time no matter how slow I go. I have enough of the 2 mg films to last almost a year at .5 mg/day. Has anyone ever done an extremely slow taper and managed to not go through hell when they finally stop? ## Based on your description I get the sense that it may sim...

red and white capsule no markings need help??
I found a couple pills in my boyfriends cig pack he is a recoverying drug addict as id like to think. no markings half white Nd half dark red so not sure what it can be. ## Hello, Veronica! How are you? I'm sorry, but without any markings, it's going to be difficult to narrow down what these are, however, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. All prescription medications have to have markings, so these are most likely and over the counter medication of some type. Does anyone else recognize these? ## OxyContin and acetaminophen. Most likely 5 mg oxy and 500 aceta But can be higher dosage.

oblong white pill, split in middle, one side of split has 1 on it, other side of split has 3 on it, other side of pill is blank.
this pill is not quite 3/4" long. My pharmacy substituted it for Gabopentin and when I questioned it they said it was a change of Mfg. I'm leery of it, it is larger than gabopentin and tends to give me indigestion. Please set my mind at ease. Thank you. ## Hello, Sue! How are you? Yes, these are 800mg Gabapentin tablets that are manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals. There may be a different inactive ingredient that could be causing your indigestion. Have you tried taking it with food? ## thank you so much, I feel much better.
