Fake OC 40???
1 Reply RSS
Got a pill that had OC on the front and 40 on the back...Took it and felt nothing... Looked at pics online and noticed the 4 on the 40 imprint was different. .. the online pics has the 4 open and not joined...Actually mine looked like ( 40).. the 4 is closed not open... im thinking its fake.. ## Hello, Rufus! How are you? It most likely was, because these are no longer being manufactured. Purdue changed the formulation to help prevent abuse and the new tablets use the marking OP on them. They discontinued the original formulation with the OC on them. The FDA lists Oxycodone as being 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. It's best not to take anything that hasn...

white pill z502
1 Reply RSS
What is this pill ## Hello, Vicky! How are you? Is the marking possibly ZC02 with all of them separated into different quadrants by score marks? If so, the tablet is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 25mgs of Promethazine. The FDA lists this medication as being an antihistamine that's most commonly used to treat or prevent nausea and vomiting.

my pharmacy changed my meds from the yellow 10-325 v 3601 norco to the 10-325 white m367 mallinckrodt. I've been taking the yellows for years with no problems.

What is different about the two meds that would cause this? ## hi i take the 10-325 hydrocodone apap tablet malli and i was takeing the yellow 10-325 witch helped me i have a very bad back and spine problems the whit pills do noting but give me headackes and upset stomack i have been on vicodin for many years now that the drugs store gave me the white pills they do not work but make me sick what can i do? ## Hello, Jennifer and Don!

psychiatrist reference in Knoxville Tn
5 Replies RSS
Im from out of state and am trying to find a psychiatrist in knoxville that can write my prescriptions. I can have my info and medical records sent or faxed. I take Prozac, Valium and Tegretol. Someone please help ## Hello, Shayne! How are you? It might be easier to set yourself up with a new PCP there and then have them refer you to someone. Plus, the PCP could at least make sure you don't run out of the Prozac and Tegretol. The Valium, however, will have to be prescribed by a specialist. The FDA classifies the Valium as being a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Prozac is an SSRI antidepressant and its typical...

30 Replies RSS
Have a legitimate prescription for Hydrocodone 5/325 but have been all over Orlando and no pharmacy has them in stock. Have tried them all - Walgreens, CVS, Target, WalMart, etc. Can anyone help? If you know any pharmacy where you've had some success, please be willing to share. I am out tomorrow and am growing anxious and afraid. I don't know what else I can do. ## I was on this med for a while. I went though a period of cant find it also back a couple years ago. Its more than likely a shortage of the medication. Has any of the pharmacy's told you when they will have it? I would call your Dr and let them know what is going on and that you will be out of it. Why they have shortages sometimes...... is just a lack of a certain ingredient. So ask the pharmacy first....... then ...

methadone withdrawal help
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I live in Salem, Oregon. Ive been on methadone for about 9 years now. recently my medication got seriously wet. Ill be 4 days short now on my meds because my new doctor is new and won't do an early refill. Ive withdrawn once in the past. Im really scared. Is there a way to lesson the withdrawals. Id like to not have to go through it at all ## Hello, Ellen! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. In the future, please store your medications in a location where they can't get wet. Most doctors, even if you aren't new to seeing them, will not provide an early refill. Their prescribing practices are very closely monitored by the government. Did you ask them about possibly cutting the tablets to lower your dosage for a few days? That might he...

Can anyone help me with the names of drs who are pain mngmnt. I've had a back surgery, titanium cage with 4 screws and below there I have a herniated disk pressing on my spinal cord. I get so angry at these people I hear asking for narcotics just to use recreationally. We are the ones suffering due to them. I'm so mad. ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, having them refer you to someone might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? The FDA lists narcotics as possibly being habit forming and causing side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. ## I really appreciate your kind words a...

Scared of sub w/ds
4 Replies RSS
Hello. I'm 22 years old and I'm down to my last piece of suboxone. It's a bittersweet feeling because I am so sick of being on it! I've been planning to quit but I'm so deathly afraid of the wds. I was a heavy oxycodone user since I was 18 and have been on sub's for 2 years. I used to take 8 MG's and have currently been on 2mg for about 7-8 months. All the stories I've read makes me even more nervous. My problem is the depression and anxiety you feel from it. Does that ever get better? Even after the withdrawals pass? Pleaseee help. I'm a fulltime worker and can't take lots of time off in order to detox at home! ## Lindseylee79...that is way to high to jump off. Go back to Dr and get another 2week supply. You need to taper ever 7 days. Start with ...
