Low platelets from Levothyroxine
I'm taking levothyroxine 75 mcg since about 10 years and now my platelets counts are lower than normal since about 3 years. I just read that this medication can be the cause. I never had symptoms of thyroid problems, the doctors prescribe the medication after having my check up blood test. Beside that I am very healthy, eat well, not overweight and exercise regulary. Do you think there is a way to get out of this medicine and go with something natural. I hate taking pills!

Thank you. ## I have been on soma for about 45 days, now my doctor say I am past 65 and SOMA is to addtive for me to take.So here I am in awful back pain and no pain releiver..I normaly just walk around the neighborhood till I get plum wore out then try to sleep may be two to three hrs a day.the most relief I can get is walking or standing.Sitting kills me,only a few minits will cause awful pain in my lower pack and top half of my butt and left thigh. ## S...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
I'm trying to wean myself off the Fentanyl patch. I went from 75 micro-gms to 50 now I'm on 25. Having a problem and not sure it is related to the decrease in the med. It's been 20 days on the 25 micro-gm and I'm going crazy. I need to keep rocking, moving in any way b/c my body is very restless. Is this a symptom of withdrawal and what do I do? I cannot take it any more. ## Yes, that can be caused by withdrawal, you probably jumped down in dosage a little too fast. This med is very, very strong, 80 times stronger than Morphine and it has a half-life of 17 hours, so that means once you take off the patch, it takes 17 hours until it has dwindled to 50% off the full dose in your body, then it slows and actually takes 3 or 4 days before it is all out of your system. So if y...

adderal peach moon
I am prescribed adderall 30mg and have been prescribed this medication for over 6 years now for ADHD. This is the first time I got this kind of pill which threw off and I went back in to the pharmacy and asked if they have given me the wrong medication and they said no that it's a generic brand. Actavis is the maker. I searched the Web and found a pic it took me a long time but I did find one. You have to type peach 30mg adderall and search the images and it's there. I hope this helps!!!!!!

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in long island
I had a dr who was prescribing me 150 30mg roxycodone every month. He decided the past month that he no longer is writing them and is only writing subs. I cannot find a dr who will write me my script. Can anyone suggest anyone? ## Who was the doctor ## I'm sorry about the problem that you've run into. However, you're not going find a doctor to just write you your prescription, as a matter of fact, if you're contacting doctors to ask them about prescribing such a medication, they're all going to be inclined to tell you no and not even let you get in the door, because they consider that to be drug seeking behavior. Have you tried asking that doctor to refer you to a pain management specialist? ## i know plenty of drs in nj who prescribe oxycodone and other pain meds 2 ...

Pictures Of Buprenex
i WAS GIVEN SUPPOSEDLY GENERIC SUBOXONE BY THE PHARMACY IT IS THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF PERCOCET. IT HAS l55 ON ONE SIDE AND A FANCY D ON THE OTHER. HAS ANTONE HEARD OF THIS? THANKS ## yuppp this is one of the new generics for suboxone, i believe its 8mg, every things all good ## That is correct, just as methadoneman said. To be even more precise, it contains 8mgs of Buprenorphine and 2mgs of Naloxone. Since it does contain a narcotic opiate, it does have the potential to be habit forming itself and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Learn more Suboxone details here. Are there any comments or questions? ## Just got the new tab Suboxone generic. It is round, white, looks like a moon on one side and 155 printed on the other. On the pill bottle i...

Help. Suboxone withdrawal
I'm 13 days in withdrawal from suboxone. I was on 8mg for almost 2 years after abusing Vic/perk for a little over year. I was never supposed to be put on this evil s*** and it's caused me to lose everything. I'm currently living in my girlfriends 2 bedroom house with her two kids. They all hate me so I basically hide in the basement thru this hell. Being alone is the hardest part for me. Will it ever end? Im starting to think I don't want to live anymore ;(. Please help ## Hi Jojo, Sorry to hear about the suboxone withdrawals. You're certainly not alone though, as I've seen a number of other patients posting on here who are undergoing the same "hell" as you called it. And I don't think that's an understatement either. Have you tried getting in to ...

How Much Is Too much Oxycodone For A Male At Weight Of 225 Lbs
I would like to know what would cause an overdose in a male who is 225 lbs. in weight using oxycodone. I have over 220 5 mg. tabs. ## Please correct me if I am wrong, but to my knowledge, Oxycodone doses aren't usually based on weight, but rather the severity of the pain you're dealing with. I went ahead and posted the adult dosing guidelines below...As far as ODing on oxycodone, I would guess anything over a 100mg, since you can get them in doses of as high as 80mg and oxycontin at even higher doses. For initial treatment the following dosing schedule is recommended: Immediate Release (IR): 5 mg to 15 mg orally every 4 to 6 hours Controlled Release (CR): 10 mg orally every 12 hours. For maintenance treatment: Immediate Release: 10 mg to 30 mg orally every 4 hours. Doses greater...

cholinerv citicoline
does the tablet and capsule have the same release? how about its comparison with zynapse or somazine? how about its effect? just making sure with the drugs lately who compromises the quality just to make it cheaper. ## They all the same, all the medications you mentioned contain Citicoline as the active ingredient. It is believed to help with various issues of Cerebral Vascular insufficiency. You can read more here: Are there any questions or comments? ## hi just want to emphasize the comparison and difference of the drug somazine/zynapse with the cholinerve. Somazine is the first citicoline brand here in the philippines. It is also known brand worldwide but since it is international brand the price is really expensive so now Zynapse came out as the exclusive Philippine brand of Somazin...

pain management shreveport
Does anyone know of any primary care physicians in the Shreveport/Bossier City/Haughton/Minden area that do pain management? I have been going to a pain management doctor here in Shreveport for about 6 years now, but it is just getting to expensive. He refuses to to go any higher on my dosage of Oxycontin, which is 30 mg 3 times a day. And he will not give me anything for break through pain. I am on Medicaid so I have to pay him out of pocket. Medicaid pays for 60 of my oxy's, but I have to pay for the other 30. If I knew of a primary care physician that accepts does some pain management and also accepts medicaid it would be a really big help. I'd really appreciate anyone that could help me out and answer this. Thank you. ## There aren't any PCP's who do Pain Management ...
