percocet without tylentol versus percocet with tylenol
I've been taking 10mg Percocet for about 10 years. My doc has just prescribed the oxy part of it without Tylenol for the first time but it gives me severe headaches. Why is that and will the headaches go away? Do I need to go back to with Tylenol. Also my doc has suggested using methadone instead of the oxycodone. What are your thoughts on that, Thank you

liquid hydrocodone-Acetamin
I have bottle of liquid hydrocodon-Acetamin 7.5-325/15 & the QTY:150 how many ML EQUALS TO ONE TABLET ## Hello, Mob! How are you? 15, that's what the 7.5-325/15 means on the label, that's the dosage you get in 15mls, 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of 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? ## 5 mls is 1 teaspoon. 1 teaspoon of this med is 7.5 mg Hydrocodone/325 Acetaminophen. ## if 5 mls is 1 teaspoon, than the 15 would refer to 3 teaspoons equaling the actual dosage of 7.5-325. Am I right or am I right? ## I think Im right, 5mls, 1 teaspoon equals 7.5 mg Hydrocodone/325 Acetaminophen. 3 teas...

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...

Prepopik
Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste. You ...

alvogen percocet 10 yellow round 230
Just got these pills from my pharmacy after getting long white ones with the imprint m523 on it which by the way I love. But these new ones from alvogen are absolutely horrible!! I am still in a lot of pain and the feeling I get from them are next to nothing like the m523 I am wondering if the pharmacy will exchange them for me if they have my old ones in stock? Anyone know the answer to this? Thank you in advance ## I am very sorry that they aren't working for you. However no, your pharmacy can't exchange them, so to speak, because once you leave the building with them, they can't take them back, as tampering is a concern. 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 an...

anywhere to get tramadol after august 18?
Ive been taking tramadol for aprox 8yrs nonstop other than a 7week break. Ive back problems and my knees are broken down do to years of rough wear and tear on top of many injuries. Ive no health insurance either. Truth b told,i cannot function very well at all without taking the tramadol. So i am checking to see of anyone has any insight or suggestions as to where i may b able to purchase tramadol after the 18th of august which is when tramadol becomes a controlled substance. Im aware that ordering overseas is risky but going without the meds is not an option. I am very worried about the change in classification. I never expected anything like this to happen, had i known and not been ignorant to the possibility of not being able to order tramadol online i would have done something diffe...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

diet pills and warfarin
Is there any safe diet pill to take while on warfarin. Oxy elite never had an effect on INR levels. does any one know of a thermeogenic or weight loss pill that is safe? My husband has an mechanical heart valve and is a body builder. Since oxy elite got recalled we can't seem to ind something that give that energy boost. Any help would be appreciated. ## Hello, Mags! How is he doing? Has he checked with his doctor about this? They should be able to help him find something he can use that won't cause a problem. Does it have to be a weight loss product? Why not just a nutritional supplement for energy? There are some great ones available that work very well. ## It doesn't have to be weight loss anything that would give him energy would be great. Just so hard to research millio...

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

af PLUS DIET PILLS
I ordered AF Plus when I heard about it on 94.9 KLTY. I only paid $7.99 s&h. I received two bottles with 30 capsules each. I can't speak for anyone else but I LOVE THESE PILLS. I've been taking them for about 2 weeks and I already lost 8 lbs. These pills help curve my appetite and give me energy. My husband recently started taking them and he loves them also. My opinion is if you want to try something that wont affect you in the long run. Try AF Plus.

kera gro hair pills
I will never ever order from Keragro ever again. They are a sketchy website that sends your "Free Trial" without telling you that you can't "simply" cancel the trial....I waited patiently for help and then was hung up on after being treated very poorly by their phone staff. Finally, I was directed to either send the bottle of pills back to them, or they could bill me the $87.00 right there. Either way, I wouldn't actually be able to try this so-called risk free trial; because it is not free! Note: This is not free! ## Funny because it happened to me as well. I've tried to talk talk to them and they hung up. Never told me it was not free oflr that I only had 14 days....its pretty terrible... I'm still fighting it though through my bank ## I have a question...
