Tablet For Getting Periods
Sir i had orlistat for 6 days from 16-22 feb den i should get my periods on 4 march bt it didnt came den i took primulute n from 10-13 and now its 17 and still no periods plz help ## HI, Asma! How are you? Orlistat will not do anything to help you get your period. Orlistat is a weight loss medication that blocks the absorption of fats in your body. Primolut N is a synthetic progesterone hormone, it contains Norethisterone 4 days of it may not have been enough to help. Is there a chance that you're pregnant? ## Hi (am 19yrs).. i am hvng irregular periods.. last timi hd it fo abt 2.5mnts .. n ths tim it been abt 2mnts n 10 days n i still din hv my periods.. n i am really scared bcoz i hd intercourse abt 25 days back.. i did d test at home n d result ws negetive.. bt still i am realy w...

Oxycodone Shortage In Florida 2012
Can a pharmacist just be quite and fill the script the doctor ordered for his patient.They lie to us and then fill freds script for the same thing and smile while they do it.We are tax paying citizens in pain and the DEA has made a real mess of everything. Real patients cant even get their meds. ipetitions.com/petition/Oxycodone-shortage-myth-created-by-the-DEA ## The whole country seems to be in a sort of bind in so far as normal patients being depicted as addicts and many who are unable to get their scripts filled no matter who they are or what they do. I think petitions such as this one do significantly help; but the real question is, are they even going to do something about these complaints even with all the petitions floating around the net? We should hope so, but knowing our gove...

My current problem is hair loss & I wondered if anyone else was having that problem? ## Hello, Gracie! How are you? No, this isn't listed from what I can find, but I'll check a couple more sources to be sure and post back. Are you on any other medications? How old are you? ## I'm 57.

Getting off Methadone!
There are 2 of us males early 30s. One of us underwent major back surgery 3 years ago and a has been addicted to pain meds for a total of 5 years and myself about 3 just from simply being his main caretaker and dipping into the cookie jar a few to many times like an idiot. We went back to our general dr. (same guy) And explained that we are both full fledged addicts an have been obtaining methadone off the street as is seems to be the only thing that works. He asked us what we where getting off the street and we told him Methadone. His response was, well that's the smartest thing you have done so far!? because of its extremely long effect on the body. We told him we need his help that we just have no money left and our livers are just a mess... we cant move on with life. He decided ...

Bystolic questions.
Hi. I am taking a new beta blocker for 20 days now. I had to because of Sotalol and Apocard is not a good combination on the longer term (I have a light form of dilated cardiomyopathy). I take Nobiten now (5 mg) in the morning. Sometimes I still get a palpy and faster heart rate in the morning. When I get up early, take my pill and start to be active right-away. Some sources on the internet say it takes about 2-4 weeks to be fully active. Anyone with same experiences? I also have a itchy feeling over my body. Some rash on hands but I guess it's because of the hot and humid weather over here. I do have eczema for years. Ever since I was on a beta blocker. I do have health anxiety and I always am scared to drop dead... Thanks!

Purbac, is it safe as an Acne treatment?
My son has just turned 13 and has developed, what I thought, were only zits on his forehead, however our family doctor says he is developing Acne and has prescribed Purbac. I am a little concerned as I do not like anti-biotics...does anyone have any info or side effects of this drug? ## Purbac is a combination antibiotic containing Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and skin rash. Have you tried any other options, such as over the counter treatments? ## I've used Purbac for years to control my problem skin and have found it to be very effective. ## the use of antibotic s should only be used in cases of abcessed boils, antibotics destroyed normal bacteria in the stomach an intestines, Acne is a trying prombem ...

I've had trouble with my since I was very young. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was in 4th grade. Now my curve has worsened, 52 degrees curved. Plus my disks are crumbling. They don't want to do surgery due to my age and the complications associated with the surgery. They have told me there's nothing they can do for me. I am taking Cymbalta, Celebrex, Lyrica, Tizadine, Tramadol 200 my time release pill. I am having really pain more so than ever due to the curve. I'm trying to force myself to stand up with out looking pathetic. I can't cope with this any longer. I don't want to fight to get on a pain pill which would help me. maybe my blood pressure would not be high. My med Dr will not prescribe narcotics. I respect her decision. She's told me there...
