doctors who will prescribe pain medication richmond va
I am looking for a compassionate doctor in the Richmond VA area who will prescribe pain medication. ## HI, BlueBell! How are you? The current situation isn't that doctors aren't compassionate, it's that there are strict regulations in place regarding what they can and cannot prescribe, how much they can prescribe, how long they can prescribe it and why they can prescribe it. It's really tied their hands in many cases. If you have a condition that requires strong pain medications for long-term treatment of chronic pain, then your best bet is most likely going to be to see a pain management specialist.

Delaudid side effects
Husband had emergency shot of Dilaudid for pain in side and back. It took away pains. Its been 4 days and he has a rash on legs, upper and lower. Has had allergic reaction to Celebrex before and quit taking medicine. Also has Parkinsons and has increased Carbadop/levadopa gradually. Is rash from Delaudid? ## Hello, Jon! How are you? At this point, with the various medications he's on, it's difficult to say. It might be from the Dilaudid, or it could be unrelated. Has he had it checked out, yet? 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.

dilaudid slip...
Had a slip and Took 40 mgs oral dilaudid at 945 thus morning. Its now 545 pm. Is it ok to take my suboxone now? ## Hello, Tim! How are you? You need to be in full withdrawals, in order to take Suboxone, otherwise the Naloxone in it can throw you into dangerous precipitated 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. When did your doctor advise you to take it?
