how to spot fake xanax bars
268 Replies RSS
received my scip from M.D. at an online site. Noticed that this time on the tabs(2 mg white bars-xanax);noticed there were no numbers or letters imprinted on tablet. It is scored on both sides ## i have a supposily 2mg xanax bar, it's kinda oblong but rectular and says xanax on one side but nothing on the other. it isn't broke into 4 squares either. is this fake? ## Would these happen to be from a foreign source? I am not finding a listing for this in the US prescription drug database and foreign drugs are hard for us to identify, because they are not regulated as strictly as those approved for sale and use in the US. Does anyone else, perhaps, have more information on these? Xanax contains the active ingredient Alprazolam and is a short-acting Benzodiazepine. It is most common ...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
59 Replies RSS
Man the amount of people who have no clue what they are talking about yet spitting advice on it like they are an expert is bewildering. NO FENTANYL does not show up as an opiate on any test anywhere. In fact the only things that will show up as an opiate are morphine, codeine, and heroin and that is because heroin and morphine metabolize into morphine. Not even oxycodone or hydrocodone can be detected as an opiate they have to be specifically tested for as they metabolize differently, same with methadone, methadone has to be specifically tested for, it will not show up as anything but methadone. So unless the test you are taking is specifically testing for fentanyl then you will be fine. The question is whether or not the test you are taking is testing for fentanyl. I have yet to see a ...

I need to have a positive drug test of oxycodone
Post a Reply
I have taken Oxycodone 5mg every 4-6 hours for many years for multiple ailments. In the last month I stopped taking them because I wanted to see if I could go without them and try and manage my pain on my own without a narcotic. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful and now my Dr. has ordered a urine drug screen. She wrote me a new script which I just got filled. I can go any time for the test because I have to go to an outside lab. How long do have to take the oxy before going to the lab so that it adaquately shows up in my urine?

Switching from loestrin 24 fe to lomedia
57 Replies RSS
I am one of the customers unhappy with the discontinuation of Loestrin 24 Fe. I saw so many negative reviews with those who switched to Minastrin that I refused to take it despite what my nurse was trying to say. I researched and knew a generic was coming. I have waited since October of last year for Lomedia and picked up my prescription and pills 3 weeks ago. I still haven't taken them because I'd like to know about the experience on these pills. Has anyone taken Lomedia? Please share your experience so we can all be informed. ## Hello, Kimmie! How are you? From what I can find, there is no difference better the Lomedia and LoEstrin FE, the active ingredients and the dosages are the same. The FDA has approved it as a generic equivalent, so you shouldn't have any problems wi...

Theophylline discontinued
20 Replies RSS
I have been theophylline er is being discontinued. Is this true? Have taken for years for asthma. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I've not found anything about it being discontinued. Where you told that by a pharmacist or did it come from some other source? There were a couple that were discontinued back in 2003, due to the fact that it's rarely prescribed, anymore. But I've not read anything in my various resources that the current one available is being discontinued. Though, a doctor or pharmacist may, admittedly, have more updated information than I do. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## From what I've been told, all strengths of Theophylline is on back order due to ...

Hydrocodone strength
20 Replies RSS
What is stronger of the two 10/325 or 7.5/750 Hydrocodone ## 10/325 stronger more hydrocodone with 10 mg per pill and only 325ancetametaphen were as the 7.5mg 750 is only 7.5 mg of hydrocodne the hydrocodone is the prescription the 750 and 325 is just the over the count tylonal I awful at spelling. Spell check makes you dumb but I hope this helps ## That is mostly correct, however, you cannot buy Acetaminophen over the counter in higher than 500mgs, which would be Extra Strength Tylenol. But the smaller numbers do refer to the Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic pain reliever, so the higher the number, the higher the dosage and the stronger the medication. The maximum you can get of it in the US is 10mgs. The common name brands for this are Lortab and Vicodin. Common side effects may inclu...

weight gain from finasteride ?
80 Replies RSS
have been on finasteride for about 2 years now, and seems to me , i have developed increased abdominal flab,no boobs(yet)!, but definately feel an increase around waist and below,literature available , says weight gain is not a side effect, but seems to me , that it might be , have picked up about 7 to 8 lbs. would be interested in others experiences along this line , thx ## I can confirm from personal experience that both finasteride and saw palmetto caused rapid weight gain in the lower abdomen. I've tested this out and found that it takes a few weeks after stopping for my metabolism to pick up again. My theory is that a hormonal imbalance is created when taking drugs with DHT blocking properties. ## I started taking Finastride 4 months ago and since then I have put on 10 pounds. ...

Metronidazole lasting side effects
642 Replies RSS
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

Side effects and lack of transparency Harvoni
7 Replies RSS
As I read the side effects I find myself getting more and more annoyed at big pharma. If you google Gilead and litigation you will see that this drug was pushed though trials and sort of held back side effects. In addition that's not really safe because the people that participated in the trials were very ill. My hepatitis was fortunately stable, as i posted on another thread 2 wks into this and i am going to the doc tomorrow and saying OFF! Of course they cover their arse and do the labs to see if its not anything else. My face is pasty white, i discussed the mood swings i am like a black box warning but alive. its taking every bit of energy to keep my emotions in tact. I DRINK a Gal easy of water, its not the water, its the freaking drug! I think they are either dismissive or don...

Where Can I Buy Paregoric
28 Replies RSS
Have always had this in the med cabinet for occasional stomach cramps. Am finally running low. I'm 67 years old. Suggestions? ## We've had many questions about this product recently and I can only inform you that it has been discontinued. The main problem with it is that it contained a tincture of Opium, which lead to severe abuse and addiction in some people. These dangers led to it being pulled from the market. From what I understand, it is now only available by prescription, in the U.S. You can read more here: You may want to ask your doctor or pharmacist for a product that can help with stomach cramping. Proper treatment requires discovering what is causing the cramping. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I too are trying to figure out what they are doing with Par...

harvoni side effects
206 Replies RSS
I have been taking Harvoni for 3 months now and am having nerve pain in my legs and lower back pain. Are anyone taking Harvoni having any of these same side effects as me? Please help if you are able. Thank you ## Hi Tony, From what I've researched, "lower back pain" is specifically listed as one of the more common side effects of Sofosbuvir (the second active ingredient in Harvoni); so I'd imagine that "leg pain" may be attributed to this drug as well. If you'd like a more concrete reference, "back pain" is also listed as a side effect of Sofosbuvir on Pubmed at: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25422576 That said, you may want to contact your doctor if the pain becomes too bothersome or severe. This way you and your doctor can determine if Harvoni is still r...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication Portland Oregon

suffering from cronic headaches and neck pain due to a variety of events ## looking for a new dr. who will be willing to give me the same meds as I was taking before I moved here, they are narcotics that I take on a regualar basis for headaches and neck pain, hydro codone 10 to be exact, where I came from it is tough to find a dr. who will help you, how will I start over in Portland to find a helpful Dr.? ## I'd suggest looking for someone that specializes in pain management and making sure that they get a full copy of your medical records from your prior doctor. In many cases, if you go in asking for a specific medication they will see it as drug seeking behavior, but they can see what works for you as documented by other physicians, they are more likely to prescribe accordingly.
