Quitting Suboxone after 4 Years
I was taking suboxone for the past 3-4 years after being addicted to lortabs for nearly 7 years. I was only taking on average 2 1/2 - 3 a day, some days up to 8 some days down to 1 depending on the supply in town. It was hell waking up everyday having to take pills to be normal. I discovered suboxone from a friend and got really sick taking my first one (it was only a 1/3 of one). I discovered that if I cut it into strips of about 1/8" long that was plenty enough to function. One sub would last about a week. I was way cheaper to buy this than Iortabs and I functioned 10x better. I recently decided I would taper down even less and attempt to quit all together. I'm on day 4 with no subs and have excruciating pains in my legs and diarrhea. My friend has given me ultram to halfway h...

looking for doctor in anchorage alaska
I am looking for a doctor in anchorage alaska that will write my pain medication I have been on roxicet 30 for 4 years with great sucess and have moved to anchorage and would like to continue my treatment thanks for any help ## Do you have insurance coverage? If so, then I think the best thing you can try would be to call them and see if they have a doctor in that area that they can recommend. Many insurance companies do keep lists of doctors that accept their insurance, to help out those who relocate or who have just joined their insurance plan. Learn more Roxicet details here. ## looking for a doctor in anchorage alaska ## anyone out there know of any doctors in anchorage that are willing to continue a patients treatment i have been on oxycodone for 4 years and it has drastically impr...

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...

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.

round pink pill 20 on one side
Trying to find out what these pills are..there's a 20 on one side and ON underlined on the other. They are small, round, and pink. Exactly like oxycontin except that they say ON instead of OC or OP. Please help! ## Hello, Sonya! How are you? From what I can find, this tablet contains 20mgs of Oxycodone sold under the brand name Oxyneo. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

gabybentin 400
I wanted to get verication if these pills r stronger then tylonol 3 or 4 ## Hello, Kevin! How are you doing? No, Gabapentin is actually an anticonvulsant that has been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. Thus, it does not work like a regular analgesic, because it takes several weeks for it to reach its full level of effectiveness in your body to alleviate pain. The Tylenol contains Codeine, which will start to alleviate pain shortly after you take it and which is an actual narcotic analgesic. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?

red capsule no imprint
red capsule no imprint brownish powder inside ## Hello, David! How are you?? With no imprint, we can rule it out as being a manufactured prescription medication, since they are all required to have unique imprints to enable their identification and compounding pharmacies use plain capsules. That means that this is most likely an over the counter product of some type. Where was it found? Some over the counter products are regional, so knowing the general location may help to narrow it down. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## from wal mart in reno nevada

What drugs contain Ergot ?
What could possibly be causing the world's worse itch for 2-3 hours at a time usually starting in the early evening? Does anyone know what the first symptoms/signs are of St. Anthony's Fire, because 'firey itch' best describes this. I take reactine occasionally for it, and wonder if it has ergot in it and actually causes this. ## Hello, Marge! How are you? It sounds like you're allergic to something. Have you consulted your doctor? There are no medications on the market that contain Ergot, except a very rare few and it is listed as an ingredient. They also require a prescription. Do you take any other medications? Do you have any medical conditions?

Triamcinolone cream
My doctor prescribed triamcinolone acetonide cream,0.1 for a burning sensation in my tongue which I got after getting a bridge done . I have to apply two times a day. I am concern that if will have any bad effect on me?. I paste it on my tongue and it felt like a thick paste and very unpleasant taste. ## Hello, Kitty! How are you doing? Are you sure that you're supposed to be using it in your mouth? This is usually used topically on the skin and not taken internally. Have you consulted your dentist? That might be a better idea to find a solution to this issue.

if gabybentin 400mg are stronger than a tylonol 3 or 4
What is stronger medication a gabybentin or a tylonol 3 or 4 ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? I think you are misunderstanding what Gabapentin actually is, because it is not a regular analgesic. It is actually anticonvulsant that can help with some types of nerve pain, but it will take 4 to6 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in the body. Thus, it does not work like an actual analgesic that can alleviate pain within minutes of taking it. Thus, the Tylenol 3 or 4 is stronger, because it is an actual analgesic that contains Codeine coupled with Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
