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...

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...

Fentanyl patch takes about 12 hrs to get into your system
There seams to be an unbelievable amount of misinformation going about Drug take about 12 hours to get into your system.a 25 patch is a relative low dose. If you are having all sorts if problems without it, for god sake call your dr. Patches usually have about 4 days worth drugs . If you are running out leave patch on for 4 days, and then you have 12 hours in you body that hasn't gotten to your blood system I have on a 100 patch and get a percocet every 4 hours: muscle relaxer and another pain medication every 8 hours, ## If you are having withdrawal symptoms after taking off a 12.5 patch, see a mental health specialist. Everyone here, please go to the web and search on the drugs you are taking, come back here and help people ## Hi Ron, Thanks for sharing your input on the Fentanyl ...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

roxy pill 5mg
what do they look like. how many is 2 many 2 take if u weigh 160 ## Roxies are round. If you are not prescribed these Meds, one is too many! It doesn't matter if you weigh 1000 pounds. Use your brain, instead of your Ba@@s! ## Roxicodone can look different depending on who has manufactured it, especially since they are available as generics. If you can post back with the markings from the tablet in question, I will gladly look it up for you and see what it contains. And the other poster is correct, this is a potent narcotic and not a medication to be played around with, they can be very dangerous. ## Found a round white pill with 233 on it an a line on the back someone told me it was a roxy5 but I cant find anything on it can someone tell what it is

weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what r they for. ## WELL THIS IS A DIET PILL THAT WAS TAKING OF THE MARKET IN TH U.S. BACK IN 1989 FOR THE REASON THAT IT WAS HURTING EITHER UR LUNGS ECT. IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply. In most cases, you can get away with carrying small amounts, around 3 months worth or less, of a drug into the US, without having it seized or questioned by customs. Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...

Going to Doctor tomorrow Please any advice is needed asap for anyone who gets Oxycodone or Tramadol Script or has in past
Hi thanks for taking the time to read this and any advice would be helpful asap. I am going to a new doctor tomorrow. I have heard he is willing to prescribe pain killers and has to some patients, but definitely not a place where he does to every patient. I used to be on 30mg oxycodone and 50mg Tramadol as well as Soma for my back, knees, feet and other bad pain. I went off health insurance a year ago and have not been able to get my meds. My quality of life has went downhill bad. I have put on weight and my blood pressure went up. Also exercising minimally has become difficult as has performing my work and being intimate at home with spouse. I need to get back on these meds asap. I am wondering from some experienced people what I should say tomorrow or how I should approach the situati...

Wheres a chatroom? Where we csn all talk?ive come from 110 mls yo 25 mls of methadone on own, need help and suggestions, etc.ehat has worked for others ## Hi Faith! Just to let you know, you're not alone going through this. Many of people have gone through this including myself. I was on 110mgs of methadone and tapered down to 24mgs. I was on methadone due to pain and addiction issues. My problem was when I got down to 24mgs I was going through some pretty bad withdrawals. My doctor prescribed me suboxone to help with the withdrawals. The main thing is to taper VERY slowly so you feel the least bit of withdrawals. Methadone is a very strong medication and some people require a life time maintenance dose. I hope everything works out for you. You've come so far. Any other question...

What are the "Buzz" words a pain doc wants to hear for a prescription?
I AM in pain I had 15 surgies last September from smashing my ankle and cracking my spine. I have RSD and constant swelling. I'm going to a pain doc next week and not sure how its "done". Thanks for any help. ## Hi Betty, Sorry to hear about your condition. From what I understand, many pain doctors will largely base their medical considerations off your medical records, insurance coverage, and a number of other individual factors. I don't think there's a specific thing you can say to alter there decisions unless you really know the doctor as an individual and/or are able to understand their point of view as well. I would just recommend being yourself and not necessarily telling them what they should be prescribing you, since that is their job as a doctor. However, it...

Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Hear
After 20 years of taking amitriptyline for headaches I would like to find people who have had any heart related side effects after long term amitriptyline use. ## Very little is known about the long-term effects of most drugs for depression. The biggest problem reported currently is relapse, when the medication is discontinued. You can read more about antidepressants here: As to any cardiac effects, I am only finding warnings that problems may occur if it is used with some specific other medications. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## I have been on Elavil for 20 years and 100mg at bedtime and I don't recommend anyone taking it long term. I have heart palpatations every day which was determined from Dr. that it was hormonal, but I don't believe it. I tried to decrease...

ADHD + PTSD Temporary Prescription Until I begin seeing new Psychiatrist
I recently moved to pa. I have ADHD/PTSD. I couldn't get an appointment for 2 months. I need a temporary prescription from a walk in medical clinic. Does anyone know of Yardley Pa walk in that prescribes Valium (ptsd) and adderal (ADHD) ## Hello, Janet! How are you? I'm sorry, but due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist to have those medications prescribed, a general practice doctor will not be able to prescribe them for you. I wish I had better news for you, but unfortunately, I don't. These regulations are applicable throughout the U.S., now. The only suggestion I can make is that if you run out and have issues, a local ER might be able to help you. Is there anything else I can help with?

I need to know if Aurobindo uses gluten in this 150mg capsule. Other manufacturers do not, but I am not sure about Aurobindo, whose drug I am taking. ## Hello, Jane! How are you? What are the markings on the capsule? Sometimes that manufacturer listed on the pharmacy label is just a licensed distributor, so I need to know the markings in order to ensure that I provide you with accurate information. Thanks! ## Thanks for asking! The markings on the oblong orange capsule are E 89 It is for Venlafaxine Hcl ER 150 mg.
