Getting off Methadone!
There are 2 of us males early 30s. One of us underwent major back surgery 3 years ago and a has been addicted to pain meds for a total of 5 years and myself about 3 just from simply being his main caretaker and dipping into the cookie jar a few to many times like an idiot. We went back to our general dr. (same guy) And explained that we are both full fledged addicts an have been obtaining methadone off the street as is seems to be the only thing that works. He asked us what we where getting off the street and we told him Methadone. His response was, well that's the smartest thing you have done so far!? because of its extremely long effect on the body. We told him we need his help that we just have no money left and our livers are just a mess... we cant move on with life. He decided ...

Bystolic questions.
Hi. I am taking a new beta blocker for 20 days now. I had to because of Sotalol and Apocard is not a good combination on the longer term (I have a light form of dilated cardiomyopathy). I take Nobiten now (5 mg) in the morning. Sometimes I still get a palpy and faster heart rate in the morning. When I get up early, take my pill and start to be active right-away. Some sources on the internet say it takes about 2-4 weeks to be fully active. Anyone with same experiences? I also have a itchy feeling over my body. Some rash on hands but I guess it's because of the hot and humid weather over here. I do have eczema for years. Ever since I was on a beta blocker. I do have health anxiety and I always am scared to drop dead... Thanks!

Purbac, is it safe as an Acne treatment?
My son has just turned 13 and has developed, what I thought, were only zits on his forehead, however our family doctor says he is developing Acne and has prescribed Purbac. I am a little concerned as I do not like anti-biotics...does anyone have any info or side effects of this drug? ## Purbac is a combination antibiotic containing Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and skin rash. Have you tried any other options, such as over the counter treatments? ## I've used Purbac for years to control my problem skin and have found it to be very effective. ## the use of antibotic s should only be used in cases of abcessed boils, antibotics destroyed normal bacteria in the stomach an intestines, Acne is a trying prombem ...

I've had trouble with my since I was very young. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was in 4th grade. Now my curve has worsened, 52 degrees curved. Plus my disks are crumbling. They don't want to do surgery due to my age and the complications associated with the surgery. They have told me there's nothing they can do for me. I am taking Cymbalta, Celebrex, Lyrica, Tizadine, Tramadol 200 my time release pill. I am having really pain more so than ever due to the curve. I'm trying to force myself to stand up with out looking pathetic. I can't cope with this any longer. I don't want to fight to get on a pain pill which would help me. maybe my blood pressure would not be high. My med Dr will not prescribe narcotics. I respect her decision. She's told me there...

Mahacef 200 USAGE
sir i m suffering 4m severe cold...should i take mahacef 200????????? ## Mahacef contains the active ingredient Cefixime, which is a cephalosporin class antibiotic. And no, as an antibiotic, it will not be effective against the virus that causes a cold and if you use it improperly, you also run the risk of developing antibiotic resistance, which could create many complications if you do get an infection that requires an antibiotic. Common side effects to this medication may include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and skin rash. Learn more: Are there any other questions or comments? ## Sir, I am suffering from typhoid fever for last 6 years but it not quire properly its comes every 3 months regularly, presently I suffering from typhoid am using malidens tablet & sparx-200 mg, but its w...

Methadone Pharmacy Atlanta Georgia or 30328 zip Area.
Looking for pharmacy filling Methadone 10 mg, in ATLANTA, GEORGIA, or Sandy Spring 30328 , Area . tried a few WALLGREEN, and CVS's , but no help. If some one knows a pharmacy that carry it most of the time, please help me ... ## Hello, Tizpar! How are you? There is no such thing as a Methadone pharmacy, any pharmacy can carry it and there is no listing of ones that do that I can refer to for you, either. The only way to find out is by actually visiting the pharmacies with your prescription in hand to see if they have it in stock. Calling won't get you an accurate answer, because they have no way of knowing if the person on the phone is a potential thief or legitimate customer with a need. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause sid...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

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...
