Head Bumps
On Xarelto for 3 weeks after being on Coumadin for many years. Do I need to worry about every little head bump with this medication. On meds for recent DVT and PE and bumped back of head while rising after getting something out of refrigerator. Don't want to be paranoid but don't want to ignore either. Where do I draw the line? ## Hello, Mike! How are you? Really, you should just try to be as careful as you can and, when you do bump your head like that, keep an eye on it for any bleeding or extreme bruising. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Interaction of Nuzak with other medication
Dear Dr. I have a bad neck condition: p had a fusion and prosthesis implanted above the fusion. The prosthesis has "collapsed" causing pain. I'm on Nuzak 40mg mornings plus E|pitec 10mg at night. I have trouble sleeping. I'm also taking blood pressure & cholesterol medication. Could there be an interaction between the medication? ## Hello, Elize! How are you?

adco fem 30
I'm using Adco-FEM 30 and I haven't started my periods I'm in red row now I'm late with 4 days now. Should I be worried????? ## Not all women experience their periods, while taking hormonal contraceptives and it can be normal of them to be irregular for the first 3 months or so, as your body gets used to the hormones. Is there a chance that you may be pregnant?

Switching from Lexapro to Viibryd
Ive been on a comb of lexapro 20mg, and synthriod 50mcg for years now.. Ive been battling depression for awhile now. Ive been on everything under the sun for depression and anxiety. The past month my depression has seem to turn for the worse.. The doc believes the lexapro isnt working and is switching me to Viibryd. I havent started it yet. I was just wondering about it. Ive been on lexapro for so long im scared, but im also scared of my depression and cant live like this much longer. ## When it comes to severe depression, I find it is very essential that the underlying causes of your depression be treated for you to feel true relief without the use of medication. I too suffered from severe depression (for a little over 2 years). Only recently have I been able to overcome the struggle o...

what is hydroco acetamin 10 500 mg tab for
Did the fda really take away the loratabs or was this just the doctors decsion,because i did better with then, ## Hello, Ellie! How are you? All combination prescription medications with amounts of Acetaminophen in excess of 325mgs per dose have been removed from the market. 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? ## They still make Lortab with the same doses of Hydrocodone. It just has 325 mg of Acetaminphen instead of 500 mg.

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...

Cymgen withdrawal experience
Hi All, thanks for this useful chat. I live in South Africa and have been on cymgen 60mg for about 8 months for anxiety and depression. It has helped a bit, but of late I feel it is working less and less. I work as a researcher at a university, and my job requires a good amount of creative thought and writing. Over the last 8 months, I feel that my creativity and ability to work effectively has been severely hampered. I tried to come off the cymgen 2 weeks ago, without knowing of the negative side effects. My withdrawal was severe, including vertigo, light headedness, flu like symptoms, diarrhoea, very poor levels of concentration and tiredness. I then did some reading, and am back on the drugs and feeling much better after just one day. I will now try a very gradual tapering, of about ...

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...

Can Triplen Forte Cause Humming in the Ears
My husband has been using Triplen Forte for about 6 months now. He is reporting a humming noise in his ear and this seems to be increasing in severity. He also uses Topzole for 12months Can any of these medications cause this noise in his ears? He has been checked by his GP and during a previous hospital visit a MR scan was done and nothing could be picked up. ## Hello, Corne! How are you and your husband? Has he seen a cardiologist? I'm thinking that if nothing else turned up, the humming may be due to whatever blood pressure or cardiac condition he's having treated with the Triplen Forte, it may also cause headache, dizziness and stomach pain.

Arycor and Adco Napamol is it similar? (For heart)
The clinic was asked for a substitute for Arycor as this was expensive. Adco Napamol was given, is this the same? ## Hello, Jan! How are you? No, they are not the same, at all. Napamol just contains Paracetamol/Acetaminophen, so it's equivalent to Tylenol. But Arycor contains the active ingredient Amiodarone, which is used to treat heart arrhythmia. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and abnormal liver enzyme results. Is there anything else I can help with?

oralcon contraceptive pills&ttc
Hi...I'm 21 years old and have been ttc since 2012!this is my second day of taking oralcon pills,the doctor told me it could help with finally conceiving...anyone have any thoughts on this?I hve had tests done and it showed I am ovulating every month!I have a 3month supply of these pills ## Contraceptives are not going to help you conceive, they prevent pregnancy. You won't get pregnant while taking these. Your doctor may have given them to you in hopes that suppressing ovulation for a few months may increase the chances of your getting pregnant, once you're done taking them and you ovulate, again. Is there anything else I can help with? ## That's my thoughts as well!My grandmother took 4 years to fall pregnant with her and but my mom had no problems at all do u think it...
