Metronidazole lasting side effects
397 Replies RSS
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

cannot fill my prescription for oxycodone 30 in florida
41 Replies RSS
i have tried everywhere in my county that i live in florida, get the same answer from all the walgreens and the pharmacies in my area they are out and dont know when they will have it if ever again. i think this is a shame for a person who has a prescription from a doctor and is in severe pain all waking hours. i think this is also a shame because all it does is gives the drug dealers on the streets a reason to charge $20.00 a pill and laugh at us all the way to their bank. there has got to be some relief for us honest people that are suffering and work hard to have insurance and be up standing citizens. i thank our governor for making this problem worse in florida and feeding right into the drug dealer hands. please can someone help and get the honest people who suffer everyday the rel...

Spiriva weight gain side effects
82 Replies RSS
I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

Adderall on backorder
390 Replies RSS
I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal...

huntsville alabama va clinic doctors who prescribe pain meds
1 Reply RSS
Need to find a VA doctor at one of the clinics in Huntsville,al. Who prescribe pain meds for RA. I have a valid pain issue and my doctor took me off hydrocodone 10/325. Those helped me get out of bed without groaning and acheing for 20 min before i can get up. Now i am in pain and my doctor just wants to give me ultram. This med in no way helps. I hurt 24/7 ## That means your doctor thinks that you are addicted to medication buddy or you may have shown signs of being addicted sorry to hear that but the methadone tablets work for me very well they last almost 24 hours

Anyone know a Dr in Alabama who prescibes methadone for chronic pain?
2 Replies RSS
Need a Dr who will prescribe Methadone for chronic pain..haven't taken any in approx 2 mos...am severe depressed and back pain is relentless...I'm 61.. not in good health..really need help...Live in the state of Alabama... ## Hi, Patti! Sorry that you're so miserable. Is there a special reason that it has to be Methadone? There are many other treatments options available for pain that use much safer and more effective medications or therapies. Do you have a general practitioner that you're currently seeing? If so, they can most likely refer you to a pain specialist. Learn more Methadone details here. The big issue with Methadone is that due to its very high addiction rate, doctors are very reluctant to prescribe it for pain, except for in very severe cases. ## I do not u...

Yes they are subutex 153 half moon and the are shaped like a surf board. they work way better then suboxsen strips people keeps saying they cut the strips into millions of peaces if that is the case . You don't need them in the first place. This new one orange subutex 153 half moon surf board shape ones last way longer.. And work great oh my god they work so great ! I recommend them to anyone using the white ones or the strips they both suck compared to the new ones . Take it of leave it but its the truth. if you take just a half it will last you two days ...unreal. ## For these subutex do they taste disgusting like the strips. As of May 1st our physician decided not to do subutex anymore. Luckily I just had my baby I am worried about breastfeeding. An hate the taste of Suboxone it...

how long after taking a suboxone can you use opiate
54 Replies RSS
I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow. If I don't use another Suboxone strip before the extraction, would I be able to use Hydrocodone after my surgery? I don't want to get sick, but I am terrified of going through this surgery with no pain meds. Please help. ## should be 48 hrs to alow to leave your system ## So if I took a 10 mg Hydrocodone after not taking a Suboxone for 24-28 hours, will it throw me into withdrawals? That would do me in after surgery to end up in wd's. ## Sorry to say but 8 mg of Suboxone is way stronger then any hydrocodone. It would take a year for you to even feel the effects. Tolerance takes...

gabapentin withdrawals
93 Replies RSS
being taken off of neurontin/gabapentin after seven years. crying, anxious, and what no one mentions itching all over! have tried antihistamines, cortizone creams but w/ no relief. ## yes this is normal I went through the same thing. I was on 3600 for eight years. I weaned off very slowly. I started weening off in 2008. I am now down to 400mg and go down about 100 a week. Its so awful ## These types of problems are normal from a sudden withdrawal of any medication that affects brain chemicals, which is exactly what Gabapentin does, since it was initially discovered as an anticonvulsant. Unfortunately, since you were on it for so long, it is probably going to take several weeks for these effects to wear off, though they should gradually improve and lessen in severity. As to the itching, ...

Any pharmacies in Beach Beach County, Fl that can fill my generic 30mg Adderall Rx
2 Replies RSS
Have not been able to fill my 30mg generic Adderall anywhere in Palm Beach County since Oct. 20, 2014 when my prescription was written. Every pharmacy claims they're still on backorder as of today, 11/08/14. Preferably one that accepts Health Care District of Palm Beach County, such as Publix or Walmart. The 70mg Vyvanse I've been taking as a substitute is not nearly as effective so I haven't been able to accomplish much with it. Even my assisted living facility cannot find any. ## Unfortunately, we are into the time of year where shortages of controlled substances usually occur, due to mandatory manufacturing limits as set by the DEA. Once a company reaches that limit, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Demand inevitably exceeds supply and sh...
