Some one babe me this pill for pain ut I have to know what it really is.its litepink/peach n oval. ## Hello, Denise! How are you? This tablet contains 0.5mgs of Alprazolam, which is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Adderall on backorder
I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal...

Voice box spasm. Caused by pantomerozole ? ## Did you mean Pantoprazole? And how do you know it was a spasm of the voice box? Has this been confirmed by a doctor? If you're taking something to treat excess stomach acid, are you sure you didn't just experience a bad bout of GERD?

Vaginal bleeding
I've been on Effexor for about three weeks after a change over from Wellbutrin. I am taking 75 mgs twice a day. I am feeling so much better, but over a week ago I started spotting. This lasted for a few days and stopped. Today I started again. I read that Effexor can mess with hormones. I have been in menopause for a couple of years. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, did you continue to take the Effexor and did this 'side effect' eventually go away. I will be contacting my doctor this week, but I wanted to know if anyone else has gone through this. ## Anytime you experience vaginal bleeding past menopause, you need to have it checked out by your doctor immediately, because there is a chance that you may have a condition that requires medical treatment. Yes, some a...

Want to quit or at least drastically reduce my Xanax.
Hi, I am beginning to realize that my Xanax use is causing me to be more depressed (I also take Lexapro and Wellbrutrin for depression). I take the 3mg Ext release but must admit that I don't take it as prescribed. I bite the pill in half and take part in the morning and part in the afternoon. This probably means that I am taking the equivalent of a higher dose. About 15 years ago I started on the.5 MG and as things in my life became more stressful, my Doc kept upping the dose. Oh, did I mention he also has me on 5 mg of Ambien. The Ambien and Xanax used to work well. They don't work like they used to and I do not want yet a higher dosage. On the other hand, I have suffered with anxiety all my life. I would consider taking something like 1mg a day (of Xanax) if it comes to that,...

Abdominal Pain Relief
Is there anything that has proven successful for anyone else to relieve stomach pain? I have tried beano, pepto, tylenol/advil. Ive taken the meds with food, without food. There has to be something that has worked for someone else other than what is in the instructions from the manufacturer. Thanks. ## Hello, Jennifer! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. If nothing is working to help and the pain is that bad, this just might not be the right medication to help you. Have you discussed the problem with your prescriber? Not all medications can be taken by everyone that tries them. Have you tried any other methods to quit smoking?

i was taking oxycodone 10mg pink k56 pills and then my doctor swiched me to norco do they have the same ingredients
Does norco 5/325 have the same ingredients as the little pink pill k56 which is oxycodone 10mg. My doctor swicth me due to the strength. The k56 pills are stronger he said and i needed a weaker pill to be able to work. So he prescribed me the norco. What im saying here is that are they the same but different doses?

Questions about Adderall 30mg
When I was younger in I was diagnosed with ADHD and was prescribed Adderrall 30mg,(in Philadelphia) now I live in New Jersey near Wildwood, I haven't yet found a doctor. I'm back in nursing school and finding it hard to concentrate. Does anyone have a suggestions?? Please help!! ## Hello, Destini! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis. Do you have a PCP that could refer you to someone? That would likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area?

Does Pradaxa cause shortness of breath
I am in A Fib and have been for the past 7 months. My Doctor has tried different procedures but so far nothing has worked. Ever since I have been on Pradaxa I have been very short of breath. Even in a sitting position I am short of breath. I did not have this problem before. I don't know it it's the A fib or the Pradaxa, My Doctor doesn't know what is causing the problem. They have done a lot of testing. Has anyone had the same problem? ## We have had other people report such a problem, when taking similar medications, however, there is no way for us to really know if it is being caused by your medical condition, or the medication. Have you seen a cardiologist? They would probably be the most qualified to get to the root of the problem. ## I'm in a similar situation ... ...

How are you and your girlfriend? Subutex is the one that can be taken, while pregnant, but her doctor needs to be aware of it, because yes, the baby could experience withdrawals. 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.
