Need Help with Suboxone Withdrawal. Stopped last Thursday
I was on Suboxone 8mg from the time of my inpatient detox from opiates. I was supervised in a proper taper. Every time I cut back I felt better. After 11 days on 1/8th of a 2mg strip, I stopped the Suboxone. I haven't been able to sleep since. I spin like a top all night. My back was injured Sat. a week ago. Would this be a withdrawal symptom or back issue or both? How long will the withdrawal symptoms last. I'm feeling like a zombie from NO SLEEP. Going to chiropractor, who says I injured S1 disc. So confused and don't want to go back on that awful drug!! ## Hello, Sula! How are you feeling? I'm sorry that you're miserable. It is most likely a withdrawal symptom, it can take several weeks for them to completely wear off. Suboxone does contain a potent narcotic, so s...

round dark blue pill m box 30 from Canada
So I bought a couple pills that were supposed to be on oxyCodone 30 milligram but I'm not sure what they are. The pills are round and very dark blue, instead of the usual a 215 pills which are lighter blue or the M box 30 milligrams which are very light blue. ## I would love it if somebody could please tell me what they are. The pill again is dark blue, round, with a boxed m on one side and a 30 on the other ## It is oxycodone 30 mg. Its made outside of of country. Thats why it looks a little different from the a 215 or lighter m 30. Hope this helps ## Actually, these have been asked about on here before and from chemistry evaluations I've found, they have come up as fakes with an unidentifiable ingredient, thus taking them could be very dangerous. It doesn't seem that they ...

Can Metformin Be The Cause Of Burning Sensation While Urinating I Recntly Notice This After Starting A Strip And Went To Doctor For It N She
i started taking a strip of metformi 500 because i want to get pregnant,a couple days after i notice i had a burning sensation when passing urine so i went to the doctor who then said i have uti and she prescribed norilet 400mg but the burnig is still here so am wondering if metformin is anyway responsible. ## No, that isn't something that Metformin is known to cause. Learn more Metformin details here. It is likely a UTI as your doctor stated and you may need to return for another antibiotic if the one that was prescribed hasn't worked. Learn more Norilet details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Over the years I would occasionally have moments where I needed to urinate but not much at all came out and it was accompanied by a burning sensation. I've been pr...

Adult daughter showing signs of agression on vyvanse ## I've been on vyvanse for over a year and I just decided to stop using it because of all the anger I felt all the time.

tramadol 377 - inferior, useless generic
I have been on tramadol for many years, usually the Mylan brand ( a round flat pill with an M on one side and T7on the other). I have never has any issues, It has always worked well with no problems. Last month, my pharmacy switched to a horrible cheaper generic ( a larger capsule shaped pill with 377 on it, made by Caraco. I started noticing that i was in increasing amounts of pain and had other issues. It was making me miserable and upset. I asked my sis who had gotten the same kind (377) of inferior tramadol if she was having problems too and was having the same issues. We both returned the defective tramadol to the pharmacy and got our regular brand and were back to normal within hours. So PLEASE be aware that 377 tramadols by Caraco are NOT the same quality as others. i would avoid...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

i am 35 year old suffering from high blood pressure taking telmesartan 20 - is it the right medicine at this age?
am 35 year old suffering from high blood pressure 160/90 taking telmesartan 20 from last one month. is it the right medicine at this age. Facing frequent urination at night. ## Hi VK, THE medicine doesn't have that much to do with your age, it's has to do with your illness, or in your case BP. THIS IS REALLY A MATTER TO TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR. IF YOUR having weird side effects that you don't like, tell him, some people react to different brands, maybe u just need to try a different manufacturers of NO meds. Dry mouth and heavy urination is common with BP MEDS. If you are overweight, just dropping your weight and watching your sodium ( salt) intake. Any food that r promenade, are going to be high in salt. Start walking that helps too. Sorry you have to with this, you r pretty ...

please help.. I have been on narcotics for chronic back pain and just moved to Va. I need to find a good Dr. that is not afraid to continue with my meds. I take several different pain meds .Any help would be appreciated.. ## @"Comments Submitted"... Since you've written your question over three years ago, I'm not going to go into any of my history at this point. Where in VA are you located. I moved back here from MD in 2007 and had been seeing a PMDR in MD for over eight years. I did find one in VA last December, but had such a bad experience, by the grace of God I was able to get a PMDR close to home in the same office as my orthopedic surgeons.

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 ...

How often can oxycodone be filled?
I have been on oxycodone and methadone for 9 yrs. because of 2 failed back surgeries. My doctor moved down the street and the new nurse says if they where filled 8/20 then can not be filled until 9/20. She said her computer wouldn't let her fill it sooner and the doctor would lose his license if he filled it to soon. I take them exact therefore I'll be out. Yet the pharmacist said she could call to have them fill it sooner. Does anybody know what the government says? so I can go back to the doctor with something. I have a feeling he doesn't know what she is doing. Maybe to lazy to look into a program that's screwed up? ## Can be filled 30 days apart. The computer must be wrong because if they were filled on 8/20, 30 days would be 9/18. There are 31 days In August.

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 ...
