detox methods to get off suboxone
32 Replies RSS
I ,due to a severe injury,was on methadone for 8 yrs and got off that crap and on suboxone at the advice of a friend. I now am at 2 mgs of suboxone daily. My pain issues are mild to none and I want off subs .I went to my doctor who claims he has Much experience with this and has proven that to me...but his method is scaring me and from what I read online I am very hesitant. He prescribed me 2mg dilaudid and valium which I hate and plans to wean me off the subs. Is this right??? I can handle a mild w/d but not a heavy one due to my work. I am not looking for people tellin me to suck it up or give advice other than if the detox method described is reasonable or crazy?? Everytime I try to go below 2mg of subs I feel like hell will a dilaudid taper make it easier or start a new addiction an...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
3268 Replies RSS
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...

metoprolol withdrawal
415 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

stop taking lyrica
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking 75mg pregabalin for three months now. How do I come off them without getting any side effects ? ## I have been taking 75mg. of Lyrica three times a day for about three months, and I want to stop it. How do I safely stop it to avoid withdrawal systoms? I have had blistered skin, fever, chills, headache,mood changes, just about the worse side effects listed. The fever is into the fourth week, I cry easily, I am depressed, I can not eat as I have so much gas that if I make myself eat, I vomit. Yes, it fixed my cold feet I have suffered from with Diabetic neuropathy for years. But, my life has become miserable.

Pristiq and Buspar
Post a Reply
Is it safe to take 100mg of Pristiq and 10mg of Buspar and 250mg of Seroquel together? I didn't know how much serotonin all those combined would be or if those 3 meds are ok to take together. Thanks!

what kind of dye is in the yellow vicodin
2 Replies RSS
Every time I take a yellow Vicodin vs a white one I feel like I'm having a slight allergic reactions. I was just wondering what kind of dye was used so I could stay away from it ## @Jp1, According to the US National Institute of Health, the dye that was used on the yellow "V 36 01" generic (10/325) Vicodin tab by Qualitest is listed as: D & C Yellow #10 lake. In addition to that, it also reportedly contains the following set of binders and fillers: colloidal silicon dioxide + croscarmellose sodium + crospovidone + magnesium stearate + microcrystalline cellulose + povidone + pregelatinized corn starch + stearic acid Was this the yellow Vicodin you were referring to? If not, can you please post back with a pill imprint to narrow it down to a specific tablet? ## Yes thank y...

Pradaxa are these side effects
2 Replies RSS
My mum has been on Pradaxa since they first came out a few years now.Her weight has increased dramatically around the abdomen it does not look like normal fat?? Her arms and legs are now the same, she is a vegan and does not eat a lot.Breathlessness is an issue which then causes her problems when walking.Any ideas ## Hi- I hope you have taken some steps to consider the alternatives, it sounds like she is encountering some adverse reactions but under the current FDA processes governing the release of new medicine, it will be impossible to determine if the reactions are related to the drug unless she gets off it for the 3-5 days it takes to clear out of her system. Having witnessed the process with an “insiders” view, I’ll share my concerns about how these well-marketed ...

contrave withdrawal
1 Reply RSS
I was part of the study and did extremely well, losing over 70 pounds. The last visit 2 weeks ago I was told the study was over and am no longer on the medication. Since stopping cold turkey I have had an almost constant headache, have trouble sleeping, have been irritable and have gained back 5 lbs. Now have a call in to my MD requesting a prescription so I can get back on the meds. I didn't have any of the issues that others have complained about while on the med, only after stopping! ## Hello, GrannyD! How are you? I'm very sorry about the withdrawal symptoms that you're having. They are most likely due to stopping the Bupropion cold turkey. The FDA does classify it as an antidepressant that is also used to aid in smoking cessation and these medication are well known to c...

I posted this in another forum and thought to post it here. I'm so frustrated and depressed over this! I just recently found out that I have some seriously herniated disks in my neck that push pretty hard into my spinal cord plus I have a tumor. Long story short I'm right now not a candidate for surgery though I'm going for a second opinion. I'm OK with that because I'm not someone who jumps for surgery right away. Anyway, my orthopedic doctor pointed me to a pain management doctor who I called to schedule. The first thing they responded with is "for an inj." huh? I said no I'm looking to down the road to fill my medication. She then says, "no this doctor only does inj's.". I call the ortho doc back and he recommends me to another pain managem...

Accidental 2nd dose of vyvanse and I'm a stay at home mom, please advise
2 Replies RSS
I accidentally took a 2nd dose of my 60mg vyvanse daily dosage. I had completely forgotten I had already taken it earlier. I am 135 lbs. and a stay at home mother. Will I be okay? Please advise. ## Hello, JMarie! How are you doing? Did anything happen? In cases such as this, you should always contact your doctor or poison control. While there are always people online, like myself, that are happy to help, if we can, we cannot administer life saving aid, if that is what's required. This is a stimulant, so an overdose does have the potential to be dangerous, it could cause a dangerously elevated heart rate and hypertension, so it's not something to be taken lightly. ## Sounds like the vyvanse isn't working if u forgot u took it in the first place.
