Metformin 500mg Tab Sandoz
3 Replies RSS
I take this medication, but i am having trouble keeping my sugar down. It has been running high for a few weeks. The question is- can I take more Metformin to regulate my sugar. It is highest at night. I take 2 per day which is whatis prescribe. Can I also take one before I go to bed? ## Just add Fenfuro in your existing medicinal regime and feel the results within 3-6 months. ## I wouldn't suggest changing your medication, without first consulting your doctor. They are the ones who will best know how to help you with your problem. Another thing that you have to take in consideration is your diet, if you are still continuing to just eat whatever you want, including foods that contain high amounts of fats and sugars, you can't expect this medication to be able to completely contr...

Today was my first day starting at the meth clinic in central east coast Fl. I was told to have $117.00 to start the meth and for the next 3 days and to my BIG surprise I only had to pay $6.00.

Just thought I would let everyone know that some clinics DO take medicaid so before you pay cash make sure that you ask about it..Don't know about medicare but medicaid YES for this clinic...Hope this can help someone... Have a nice day......... Donna ## I need to find a clinic in Florida that accepts medicade. I'm on disability and can no longer afford 13.00 per day that it costs. I have been a maintenance patient for over 15 years and really need help. Thanks so much for any help anyone can give me. ##...

Fentyanl Patches
3 Replies RSS
I have a fentynal 100mg patch. I usually suck the gel out but this one is not gel its on sticky strip paper. so how do i get the medicine off now, suck on the paper? ## It's actually not safe to do so. Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic, it is actually over 80 times stronger than Morphine and using it in such a manner does create the very real risk of overdose. Learn more: The 100mcgs is the highest dosage patch available, so it is very dangerous. Are there any other questions or comments? ## You chew on it sticky side out. chew on it all day same affect as gel. I like them better ## What me and my boyfriend do with our fentynal patches is we cut little pieces off and just suck on that.. sticky side on my tounge :)

bilateral pulmonary embolism
1 Reply RSS
Just a quick question, don't know whether you will know the answer, but if in 6 months at my Dr review for my blood thinners,for pulmonary embolisms in both lungs, if I was told I can come off them do I have any rights to ask to be kept on them even at a low dose? As no one know where or why this happened and tbh I'm gonna be scared to come off them now ... Is it my right go ask to be kept on them? ## I went to a hematologist and did a full blood workup because I had bilateral PEs. They can let you know if you have any genetic factors for PE. My blood work turned out ok with no genetic factors so they think it was birth control pills. Even if you go off of the thinners, you will be more aware of the symptoms if it happens again. I am getting ready to go off of xeralto at the end...

If anyone has more information, please post! ## PEX-2 alprazolam do not work at all, they can't be 2mg alprazolam for they do noth...

Accutane and Infertility
357 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...
