How are you doing? I'm sorry, but due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require such medications on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see specialists for each related condition. For instance, pain medications will need to be prescribed by a pain management specialist and Clonazepam from another, a PCP can only write now for general medications, such as those for high blood pressure. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to the appropriate doctors? I...

Hosit tablet side effects
Hi Doctor, I am 28 years old, I am taking hosit and ecospirin 75 which was prescribed by the doctor when I was ill when I was young. Now recently I was diagonised as diabetic, I am bit concerned whether it is because these tablets I take? Can you please help me with this. ## Hello, Chinna! How are you? No, neither of these would cause you to become diabetic. The Hosit is just a nutritional supplement and Ecosprin just contains Aspirin. What were your blood sugar levels at?

metformin for an 8 year old?
My 8 year old daughter is apparently pre diabetic. Her fasting insulin is 44 which shouldn't be over somewhere around the low to mid 20's, I think was said. At a follow up appointment today w/ her pediatrician he order a couple more blood tests for liver enzyme level and lactic acid. He stated that if these tests are normal he wants to start her on Metformin. Naturally, I begin my Google search and see that it's not recommended for children under 10. Concerning? Yes. In a different situation this happened and my insurance wouldn't even consider paying with or without a prior authorization for the physician. Problem #2. I guess. Anyway a little history. ...She is, in my opinion, severely overweight at 127 lbs, is 1/2 African American, has plenty of extra waistline fat, wa...

pharmacies in cleveland ohio
need to obtain a Precision QID Glucometer for Diabetes Care. Where can I go to find one? ## Hello, Mile! How are you? I'm sorry, but I've not been able to find a listing of which pharmacies carry this. However, you should be able to just call them and ask. It's not like this is a controlled substance, so there shouldn't be a problem giving you an answer over the phone. Has anyone seen these anywhere?
