Methadone to Morphine ER HELP
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking 10mg Methadone tabs every morning for about 20 days. My question is... I wanted off of them before my body became dependent, so yesterday morning I took 10mg, and about 4 hours later took a 15mg extended release morphine. Felt pretty normal. This morning, no Methadone but took the morphine. I want to know if I'm going to experience any kind of withdrawal symptoms? If so, I know that it has a very long half life, when will symptoms start? I have 6 Methadone tablets left. I know I'm not on a high dose for a long time like some others. I feel for them. I have been taking opiates half my life! Please, any answer will help, as well as any advice. I have 3 weeks of Morphine left. (15mg tabs at one a day.) I thank you so much. God Bless. ## Yes, you may still experie...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
659 Replies RSS
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. Forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

what if i take a double dose of lisinopril 20 mg
2 Replies RSS
I take 20 mg of lisinopril every morning. I went to take my night medicine and accidentally took my blood pressure again. Should I be worried. ## Hello, Wanda! How are you? What are your normal blood pressure numbers? You can safely take up to 40mgs a day, but your blood pressure may go lower than normal, which could cause you to experience nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension, as reported by the FDA. Did you check in with your doctor? ## Hi can I take the hydroclorothiazide and privinil together in the morning or it's best to take privinil in the evening I have been taking it two days now

Tricor/ Fenofibrate is ruining my life! Sever neck back, shoulder blade and arm pain!
19 Replies RSS
Two weeks after starting Tricor, I started developing muscle stiffness that within two more weeks was so severe, I was only sleeping a couple hours a night because the pain kept me up. I went to the Dr and she said keep taking the tricor -she prescribed muscle relaxers and an NSAID pain med. They said maybe it was bad posture, and caused by working at a computer. They also suggested physical therapy. Neither helped. Two days later I went to a Chiropracter, with no relief. The next week I was calling her office again, after waiting in pain a couple days, she prescribed another kind of muscle relaxer and NSAID for pain, and again said to go to physical therapy. The medicin did nothing at all, and again I was so severly in pain, I felt as if someone was trying to rip my arms from my should...

I no they should work but I jus took my 2nd one in bout 2 hrs while I'm writing this. Is it jus me or r the purple ones weaker. Like I said I'm wide awake this sux. ## No, it isn't just you! There can be differences in generic medications. Under the U.S. FDA regulations, generic medications can differ from the name brand, in the amount of the active ingredient, by as much as plus or minus 20%. Additionally, generics only have to measure against the name brand and not against each other, which means that the amount of the active ingredient can differ from one generic to the next. Therefore, the news pill you received may not have as muc...

describe addiction to oxycodone
3 Replies RSS
I was prescribed oxycodone 5 milligrams every 2 hours for pain. How addictive is that? What do I need to expect when I stop it or should I back of off it slowly? I've only been taking it for 1 month. ## Ok for real, i wouldn't worry about it at all. If u are prescribed for an acute injury or pain take as directed. I am an addict because of pain management for a chronic condition. I would check your script directions though. Its usually 1-2 pills every 4-6 hours, not two. But your dose is very low and unlikely to cause u a problem. In comparison i was taking 60-90 milligrams every 4-6 hours. Its deadly amounts and a ten year tolerance. Keep talking to your doc about your concerns with taking the drug. When u stop telling your doctor the truth or stop asking him questions is the m...

My doctor had a stoke and was prescribing me 30 mg a day of methadone for a chronic pain syndrome..I am a 51 yr old that has never abused drugs!! Does anyone know a dr. or pain dr. that is willing to prescribe this to me..Either in Col, ohio, or Springfield ohio!! Thanks for your time!! ## You'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, due to the new regulations that were put in place at the beginning of the year. Due to the increased rates of over prescribing and improper prescribing, the DEA and FDA are making it harder for general practitioners and surgeons to prescribe such medications for long-term use and most people that need them must be referred to pain management.

Prednisone reaction after 7 day dosage?
1 Reply RSS
Hi - is it possible to have bad side affects from only a 7 day course of the drug prednisone? I've been battling bronchitis and was prescribed 20 MG of the drug last Monday (almost 2 weeks ago). I was prescribed 40MG the first day, then 20MG a day for the next 6 days (my last dose was last Sunday). My bronchitis is alot better, but everyday I've had these wierd sinus headaches and diziness that start about noon and get worse throughout the day. I also had really bad insomnia - didn't sleep for almost 2 days after finishing the prescription. I've been taking Tylenol PM which has thankfully allowed me to sleep, but I don't like how I'm feeling during the day. I also feel alot of fatigue and bloating (my legs especially). Is it possible to have side effects from the...

movantik and high blood pressure
1 Reply RSS
My husband was on Linzess and it caused his blood pressure to go up and had a heart attack. Now the doctor has put him Monvantik and his blood has been going back up. It doesn't say that it causes high blood pressure online, but we are starting to wonder if this is the cause of his problem. Has anyone else had a problem with Monvantik? ## That is not a listed side effect, according to FDA reports, but there is never any way to know how any medication may affect any given person that takes it. Other users have reported similar occurrences, though. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and withdrawals (if someone is using opiates.) Is he on any other medications? What does his normal diet consist of? Does he eat a lot of salty...

I take 100 ic gabapentin 3 times/day for sciatica. Now I find that my bladder leaks about once a week which is unnerving. Has this been reported as a side effect? ## Didn't give enough information about my bladder leakage. The leakage is small and occurs in my sleep. ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. This is not listed among the normal side effects, which may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and weight gain. You can read more on it here: Have you talked to your doctor about this? ## Have not talked to doctor about occasional bladder leakage while sleeping since starting Gabapentin.

I now have a pill that's green in color. My question is, does this pill cause hair loss or does it stop the growth of hair and also cause dry scalp? ## This medication has been known to cause hair loss in some people that take it, according to FDA reports, as well as dry skin. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination. If these issues are severe/problematic for you, you should consult your doctor, there are other medications that you can try. Is this the only medication you take?

Need Help Finding Doctor To Prescribe Either Oxycodone Vicodin Or Methadone 10mg For My Chronic Pain
452 Replies RSS
I have been suffering from chronic pain for 7 years and have always been on and off pain meds from tylenol 3 to 90mg methadone at the worst of any ever taken. I decided to dose down & get off of methadone as I did not care for the "clinic" enviroment per say as I was using more for pain then for addicition. I found a dr that prescribed me the pain meds for breakthrough pain and the pill form of methadone 10mg was what I chose but now he is gone as he lost his license which sucks for me because NO ONE will give me anything, not even the methadone unless I go back to the stupid clinc and I so don't want that... DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A DR. that would prescribe anything or just something to get me through life with less pain? I am in the twin cities of Minnesota and I will dri...

How Long Does Tramadol Stay In Your System
269 Replies RSS
I took 100mg of Tramadol last thursday and have to have a urine test at my pain doc next thurs (2 weeks between dosage and test). I was wondering if anyone has been tested positive after that long? ## You will be fine, most of the time they don't test for tramadol anyway because it isn't a narcotic but it would be out of your system within 48-72 hours anyway so no worries ## Yes, that is correct, Tramadol isn't a straight narcotic and it isn't included on the standard drug tests. Even if it were, opioids are usually only detectable for approximately 4 to 5 days, after last dosing. It is, however, never advisable to use any medication, without your doctor's approval and supervision. Are there any other questions or comments? ## i took ultram three weeks ago (which was...

Propranolol20mg round lil blue pill

What is stronger. Propranolol #20mg. Or Oxycotin ## Hi rose, I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but Propranolol and Oxycontin are two completely different medications. One is for high blood pressure and one is for pain relief, so there's really no logical way to compare their efficacy. You also can't compare two medications without knowing the dosage of both of them. Just saying one is more potent than the other still leaves me wondering what you might be referring to with regards to potency?

I am now down to one morning dose a day and ready to stop completely (after 6 months) and am feeling ok ## Any drug or substance that you take into your body for a prolonged period of time will cause some mild withdrawal symptoms if you abruptly stop using it, even if they don't consider it addictive. Because your body gets used ...
