Butesin Picrate - compounding
1 Reply RSS
Hello. I'm from Australia and had been sorry to learn that Butesin Picrate cream was removed from commercial sale. My daughter (a registered pharmacist with Pharmaceutical Compounding exp.) recently suffered burns while she was home cooking: I said my "often quoted regret" about the cream's discontinuation. We have - between us - located the original (1%) pharmaceutical compounding instructions for it and provided it's not large scale manufacture I can arrange to put you in touch with the compounding pharmacy - only in limited supply for individuals though (like many of us who grew up with this cream in our mothers' first aid boxes!). One ingredient (apparently) had cancer-causing discussions at scientific circles... and that's part of the PR disaster that pr...

Hello Everyone! I will try to make this thread as short as I can. I got degenerative disc disease three years ago. I have been on Hydro 10/325 ever sense. Which worked wonders for me. I went to my Dr this week and found out i now have an elevated liver. Sign of to much Tylenol. I then went the next day to my PM Dr. and he prescribed me Norco. I told him about the elevated liver issue. Which i know I told him about. I called my PM Dr today and he said i did not tell him about the elevated liver. But, I have seen him for going almost 4 years. He RXed me Norco 10/325's. I thought that was odd but, trusted in him that he knew what he was doing. I had to take 3 Norco's that night and my pain never went away. Thankfully I still had 20 Hydros left from last month. I have researched on ...

find a doctor that prescribes Xanax and Adderall for my condition
62 Replies RSS
I am going back to school in two days and am in desperate need of something to help me focus. Because of this problem, I ended up dropping out of this school a few years ago. Also I have major anxiety. I worry about everything, no matter how minuscule, have trouble sleeping because my mind is always racing. When I get super upset, I hyperventilate and feel like I can't breathe. ## Your mind could be racing because of the Adderall. Drugs like Xanax do not help you "focus" and is not a true sleep aid. Your best bet would be to stay off both? ## Hi, Melissa! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, without knowing your general location, it's difficult for anyone to try to make any recommendations for a doctor that may help. Can you please post back and give...

Brintellix (Trintellix) withdrawal
3 Replies RSS
Started 10 mg Trintellix 3 weeks ago. Vomiting at least 2x a day and constant nausea, fatigue, muscle and back pain. Trying to wean off it - doctor said take it every second day for a week then go see her. What is the normal time frame for withdrawal I am terrified of this drug. I am diabetic and it is making my sugars wildly fluctuate too. ## Called Lundbeck (canadian office in Montreal) today to get advice on how to wean off/stop taking Trintellix. Shocked to be told "there is NO protocol for weaning/stopping this drug. You have to let your doctor decide how to proceed"! "Everyone has a different reaction". My doctor is away for a week so. My pharmacist and I are trying to figure something out, but I am absolutely stunned at Lundbeck's answer ## Hi Judy, Sorry to h...

I have a light green pill that is round and it reads E|7 on one side and blank on the other. I cant seem to identify it. Can you help me? ## This tablet is manufactured by Epic Pharrma and they list it as containing 15mgs of Oxycodone.

Violent reaction to Nitrofurantoin
1 Reply RSS
I am 82 and had UTI from the 1st of April. By 16th April , not better, I needed to start on my third lot of Nitrofurantoin. That day I became very ill. My symptoms lasted three days and nights. Every joint was aching. My arm was as sore as if I had bumped it. I hadn't. It hurt to turn my eyes. I had trigeminal pains and my head was aching. I was being sick although I had an empty stomach.the frightening thing was I was shuddering so violently. my arms were jerking uncontrollably. I have never felt so weak and exhausted. The day I stopped taking the medication was the day those symptoms subsided leaving me totally exhausted and weak. How long will it take to get over this. I am taking my last doses of Pivmecillinam today and can tell that the Cystitis has gone , but I am so short of ...

Can you Take Prednisone & Plavix
3 Replies RSS
Prednison & Plavix can you take this combo ? ## If you take plavix & have a stent in your heart, can you take predinsone to gain weight ## I'm not finding any contraindications regarding taking them together, however, you should always consult a doctor or pharmacist to be certain. And no, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to take it, you shouldn't use Prednisone, if you are a heart patient. It can cause fluid retention and, if you are an existing heart patient, this ups your risk of suffering congestive heart failure. Has your doctor instructed you to use it? ## Is it safe to take a methylprednisolone pack if I am on Plavix?

Tramadol for OCD
7 Replies RSS
Hello. I am a 31 year old woman who was diagnosed 5 years ago with Psoriasis and more recently Psoriatic Arthritis. In addition to taking Humira for this, I also have been prescribed Tramadol 50mg 3x a day. While this drug may not help a lot of you with your symptoms, it has done wonders for me in more ways than one! I would first like to say though that even thought my prescription is for 3x a day, I only take one first thing in the morning and it helps greatly with my pain! Now for my question. After taking this drug for a few weeks it has done something strange. I have had OCD for years and over time my compultions have just gotten worse and worse. Now after being on the Tramadol they seem to be much better! Has anyone else with OCD taking this medication had the same effects? I have...

Is it safe from a foreign country? I'm still a little Leary . ## Hello, Rusti! How are you? If it is available via a U.S. pharmacy, then it has passed the same quality and efficacy standards as all others, regardless of which country it is from. This medication is an SSRI antidepressant which may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've taken 50mg of sertraline for 24 years. During that time, I would periodically try to get off it. But after about 2 days, I would feel myself go down and resumed taking it. It's been quite a while since I've made this attempt again, so more than a week ago I discontinued sertraline (Lupin Pharma) and I don't feel any different than when I took it. My th...

Taking 2 Oxycodone 5/325 vs.1 10/325 Oxycodone
Post a Reply
My Dr, has changed me from 1 to 2 Oxycodone 5/325 per dose 4 x's a day instead of 1 dose of Oxycodone 10/325 4 x's a day. Been taking Oxycodone 5/325 for year's and has not been giving the relief it use too. I have DDD and 4 vertebrae's fused in my lower back. Was wondering why, so I'm not having as much apap in my system, which taken only 4 times a day is still below 3000, but not much. Will it give me more relief this way instead of taking 1 10/325?

Irrational behaviors while on Zoloft?
14 Replies RSS
I have a dear friend whose wife left him 2 months ago and is now taking Zoloft (not sure for how long). He mistakenly got off this medication too quickly and had a major withdrawal symptom during which he went completely homicidal/suicidal (he wanted to kill his wife and kill himself). He knew he was experiencing something deeply wrong so he called me to drive him urgently to the pharmacy to pick up his med. He apparently took Clonazepam to calm him down but it made him unable to drive. Once he got his med, he took it right away and felt semi-normal in the matter of 4 hours and "normal or stable" by the next few days. It really scared me for I have not encountered anything like this before personally. He then proceeded to continue his irrational behaviors including madly falling...

why does it say poison on the label of liquid morphine sulfate
1 Reply RSS
It has poison listed on the label of my bottle of liquid morphine sulfate for intravenous use. It is an outdated bottle, but is it safe to use? ## First never use expired drugs! Secondly liquid morphine is deadly if taken or used improperly so why wouldn't it be considered a poison.
