focalin addiction!!
My first semester in college was a disaster as I began at the age of 25 and only 3 months after leaving an all together different environment in the military where I served 4 tours in the Middle East. I never missed a class and yet my GPA at the end was a 1.75. I literally couldn’t absorb anything in class, fought off falling asleep more often than not, and couldn’t seem to apply my discipline to making myself sit and read. So, in the Fall of ’05 I began taking Focalin 10mg and the difference was night and day. Not only did I retain information from class, but I was able to sit down and read without losing focus, I actually enjoyed it, and my second semester GPA was a 3.63! Now it is the beginning of Fall 2008, I graduated in May, and have started an already successful...

Anyone Experiencing Missed Periods And Slight Weight Gain On Lo Loestrin Fe Birth Control
I have been on this pill since March and only got my period the first month I was on it and it was very light and only lasted a couple of days. haven't gotten it since. I have taken tests...all negative. Any one else experiencing this? ## Since there are hormonal based contraceptive tablets, both of these symptoms can be normal side effects of using the medication. There is really no harm in skipping your menstrual cycle, there are even contraceptives on the market that are specifically designed to let you skip for several months in a row. However, if you are concerned, you should consulted your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## I probably started taking this in April/May. I can't remember exactly. For the first three packs I didn't get a period. On the fourth pack I...

generic percocet 10 a333 white oblong
Anyone had stomach / intestinal effects from this particular form? I've been switched from Watson 932 10/325 because of drug store supply. ## Hi Michael, According to the Oxycodone Drug Details page, this medication can cause GI related side effects such as: diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, vomiting, urine retention, and loss of appetite. I don't know which of these symptoms you may be experiencing, but I believe they can be relatively common amongst other possible side effects. It could also be due to having a different set of inactive ingredients (otherwise known as binders/fillers). If you have a known allergy to things like corn starch (a gluten derivative) or propylene glycol (which is also used in motor oil for your car), then this might be worth looking into. I hav...

hydroxyzine
what is it used for ## what is this medication for is it to allow one to sleep ## What is Hydroxyzine given for and how long shoul one take it. I take 3 a day of Hydroxyzine HCL 10 mg. per day. What are the side effects ? ## Hydroxyzine is used primarily as an antihistamine for the treatment of itches and irritations, an antiemetic for the reduction of nausea, as a weak analgesic by itself and as an opioid potentiator, and as an anxiolytic for the treatment of anxiety. As far as the length of time one should be taking this drug, is up to the doctor who prescribed it to you and whether or not you are experiencing severe adverse reactions; whether or not the drug is working properly for your condition; or other factors. Generally the label on the bottle states how long and how much one sh...

celebrex and lamotrigine interractions
I take Lamotrigine one does of 25mg daily for the treatment/prevention of Temporal Lobe Nocturnal Seizures. Please can you tell me if I take Celebrex for inflammation of my chest following a bout of Whooping Cough, whether it will interact with the Lamotrigine? I have been taking Brufen, but have run out and cant afford more. I have Celebrex tablets from a previous knee injury and wish to use if safe to do so? ## Hello, Jacquie! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed, but it is always best to double check such information to be sure. You should also make sure that it is safe for you take NSAIDs. Celebrex may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, thanks so much for the response...

white cross energy pills
smaller than an asprin and makes you want to get up and go, fast ## I am not sure what you are asking, if you need me to identify your I will need more information about the pill. If you need me to locate a drug or it's ingredients, I will need more informaiton as well.

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds In Orange County Ca
I am 50 and work a hard labor job for 25 years. I am in chronic pain constantly. I want a better quality of life and to continue to work. I need a Doctor in Orange County, CA that can prescribe Norco for my pain. ## The main issue here may be due to the fact that you're asking for/looking for, a specific pain medication, especially one that contains a narcotic. Many doctors will see that as drug seeking behavior, it is something they are taught to watch out for in new patients. The best thing you can do is to see a new doctor and make sure that they receive a full copy of your medical records, so your records can speak for themselves. A doctor will be more likely to follow the information and prescribing practices of their fellow physicians. Does anyone know a good doctor in the are...

kera gro hair tabs
got these in the mail I ordered them,but afraid to take them they were not conpletey sealed! ## I ordered them too for being ignorant. These people dont eveb have a website. Its a treally fishy new company. They dont list any inredients, dont have a real working site and what they sent you isnt a trial, its a full sized bottle that you can use 14 days worth of it for free and return it after. If you dont return it after 14 days they will charge you for the entire bottle which is $85 dollars. I fell for this because I didnt bother to read and just ordered it because I was in a hurry and when I got home and read I was like O.O they are a typical scammy site with really cheesy claims.

Side effects? Worse anxiety?
I just started taking citalopram 20 mg 5 days ago. Today I had a terrible all over anxiety/panic attack that lasted about 10 min. I've never had anything that intense before. I wonder if I should just give this med more time to get in my system.

Drixoral Substitute
Great news! I have FINALLY found the substitute for Drixoral Cold & Allergy and wish someone had told me before I had to suffer with allergy symptoms for so long. It's a combination of one Mucinex DM tablet and one Aleve-D Sinus & Cold tablet; take one of each at the same time and within an hour you'll feel like a brand new person! Mucinex DM is an OTC expectorant and cough supressant and Aleve-D (an extended release medicine) can be found behind the counter (you have to ask for it and show ID), but I found both at Walmart. I know the name brands cost more, but do not bother buying substitutions because they simply will not work; since Drixoral has not been available, I already have tried soooooo many that didn't help at all. Good Luck and I hope this works as well f...
