prednisone20 mg i must ve read wrong and took 3tabs at the same time a few hours ago should worry can still
I took 3 pills accidental because I read the label wrong. I'm so worried to even go to sleep ugh. Can anything happen to me? Can I still take my sleeping pills, muscle relaxers and my pain pill wish is percocet 20mg... please help! I've never been so worried.:-( ## You'll be fine. 60 MG is still a starting dose. Perhaps be more careful next time? ;/ If it happened to me, I would still take my Percocet, sleeping pills, and muscle relaxers. ## No do NOT mix perocet with muscle relaxers and sleeping pills. It will interfere with your respiratory system. Remember what happened to Heath Ledger? First of all, 20mg of percocet is awfully high on its own. Don't compound the risk. ## And as to the other reply, 60mg IS NOT a starting dose for percocet. That is insane. They only ma...

hypotears shortage
Hello why is there a shortage of Hypotears? I've checked CVS online and they're out of stock. Please suggest another online retailer. Thanks. ## Hi Tonket, I'm not aware of a shortage, but I have heard on several accounts that Hypotears was eventually discontinued by a number of different retailers (including Walmart, CVS, etc). I haven't figured out the reasoning behind it being discontinued, but it appears that some internet shops (such as Amazon) still carry Hypotears made by Novartis. So that may be your next best bet for obtaining some before they run out of stock at some point. Do you know what makes these eye drops any different than other similar products on the market? ## Not sure why they discontinued. They were theconly drops that work for me ## Systane Ultra ...

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...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...

Dear sir/ madam i met with an bike accident my two legs got fractured and my nerves Is damaged.. My doctor told nerve is not fully damage but it is slightly damaged.. Now i am having foot drop condition i am able to move my leg fingers little bit.. Is maxgalin is proper drug to treat foot drop condition. plz send u r valuable Suggestions ## @Vijay, Sorry to hear about what had happened to your legs during that accident. I really hope you manage to make a full recovery. From what I could gather, Maxgalin (Pregabalin) is commonly used for treating the pain associated with nerve damage. So it sounds to me like the doctor gave you the right type of medication for your condition. But none-the-less these kinds of injuries can often take a long time to heal, depending on the severity of it. Yo...

What happens when you take Nerugaba M 75
My mom age 87 years had a fall 3 months back .After her fall she was not able to walk , she was walking on her own and doing her daily work on her own. she had a compression and had fractured her lumber portion of the spine. She was operated ( by using bone cement on the fractured part). After the operation she was able to walk with the walker. She is getting a pain when she stand up which runs through her legs. For this reason she was given pain killer every other day. .Still the pain used to be there. The doc suggested NEUGABA M 75 to be given at night . So last night one capsule was given . The next morning she got up and was unable to walk with the walker which she was doing before the capsule was given. I want to know does this capsule effects the nervous system. Pl give me a reply

Painkillers for servere back injury
In March of 2014 I was involved in a bus accident on lovely SEPTA. The i**** bus driver hit a PARKED VAN on the Blvd during clear weather. Anyway, the bus was partially destroyed and I suffered two herniated discs which have caused me no end of pain. The lawyer I retained sent me to MRCP where I received physical therapy. It helped for awhile but after a period of time it just stopped helping. Now I am in the situation where I am in pain EVERY DAY. If feels like a knife is twisted in the middle of my back at all times because of the pain. The fat shyt Dr. at this place, Dr. Silverman, prescribed me a series of medicines that did NOT work: Tramadol, Naproyxen, and Gabantin. None of these are narcotics but the lying officer manager said they were. Its stupid to lie about this because the ...

Cannot find a Pharmacy to fill Oxycodone 30mg near Detroit, MI...Help please?
My husband received a script of Oxycodone 30 mg a few weeks ago from his surgeon and I cannot find a pharmacy to get them filled at. They mostly say they do not carry them or they are on back order. I have called everywhere. Any suggestions? Anyone know a pharmacy that carries it? Thanks in advance. ## This has become an ongoing problem all over the U.S. and I am not sure exactly why, but there may be some shortages going on, as well as new dispensing regulations. The best suggestion I can make is that if you have insurance, I'd suggest you check with your prescription insurance provider and see if they have a mail order pharmacy that you can use. This has worked for many people that were having trouble getting their narcotic prescriptions filled. Learn more Oxycodone details here. ...

Zepose 10 made by Cipla in India
Is this legitimate? I'm using it to help withdrawal symptoms from alcohol. I have 10 mg tablets made by Cipla and I am taking half every 4 hours and plan to wean off as quickly as possible. I tried already and clearly cut back too much too fast. How much is safe? I don't want another addiction, but I know I need something, as I've already had a grand-mall seizure a few years ago from alcohol withdrawal. Any advice is welcome. ## Zepose is listed as containing the drug Diazepam, but I can't verify the legitimacy of the ones you have, because there are many fraudulent products on the foreign market. Are there any markings on them, at all? Learn more Diazepam details here. How much have you been drinking and how often? It may not be safe for you to just try to stop on your ...
