I am looking for information on ms contin use after gastric bypass. My previous dose is just not cutting it but my surgeon said I shouldn't have any problems. Anyone else had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass? Is there a suggested alternative and formula? ## So you were on a ms cr before surgery & after? If so, notice any difference in the absorption? I'm really concerned cuz sometimes I dont seem to absorb enough & other times it feels like it adsorbed all at once! Afraid of thst happening with the ms cr.... ## i had stomach surgery few years back and have been on ms contin er for about a year...it feels like i am not absorbing my medicine and feel as thou i am always fighting off withdrawl symptoms...i have mentioned this to y doctor but feel i am not being beleived...i am frus...

I've been prescribed this medication for Chlamydia, is this correct? I have 5 doses of this medication, will this work? ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? Yes, it can be prescribed to treat this STI. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. If you do not see any improvement, after finishing your course of treatment, please consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

lo loestrin lost a pill

Pill fell, I immediately took the blue pill for the next day but don't think I can get the pill that fell, it's gone... Should I continue with my pack as usual or discontinue and start a new pack? I'm at the end of week 2. ## If you only miss one pill, it is usually recommended that you continue the pack, as is, unless your doctor states otherwise, but you should use backup protection for the following 7 days, to ensure you are protected against pregnancy. The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

over the counter infection med beginning with a
1 Reply RSS
It was a prescribed med, then several years later became over the counter. A Cardiologist gave to his wife for her travels in case she got an infection only condition. It worked over night. It was spelled beginning witn "A" and couple other letters followed. ## Hello, Sandra! How are you? There are no antibiotics available over the counter, other than topical ones that are available in creams, or ointments, in very small amounts. You can verify this with the FDA and the NIH. Did someone tell you this, or did you read about it somewhere? Does anyone have an idea of what they might be referring to?

would antibiotics for a kidney infection work for a bad skin burn
1 Reply RSS
I got hot wax spilled on me from one of those wax burners that you plug in and makes your house smell amazing. Well it has burned my skin pretty bad in a few different spots causing bleeding, scabing and greenish/yellow nasty odor discharge. I have been cleaning it with peroxide and putting triple antibiotic cream but have some leftover and a refill for more of these h49 pills. Will they help with the skin infection to get better and not worse? ## To be honest, while the antibiotic may help, it is really time to see your doctor. While I'm fairly certain an antibiotic may help, there's a chance that you don't have enough to full eradicate this infection. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarr...

methadone and celexa

My doctor prescribed me 10mg of celexa + 0.5 mg of klonopin both for anxiety, and I take 20 mg of methadone daily for chronic pain from a clinic. Will the three mixtures hurt me, especially the celexa and methadone together? ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? Taking the Celexa, with the Methadone increases the risk of developing a prolong QT heart interval, and that has the potential to be fatal, so such combinations are recommended avoided by the FDA and the NIH. They are also both listed as increasing sedation. What the prescribing doctor aware that you are taking Methadone?

Adderal 30mg Generic Which Is Better The Orange Oval Or The Pink Round
75 Replies RSS
Is there a difference in the potency of the generic oval orange 30mg and the generic round pink 30 mg? ## Hi Wendy, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. However I do want to mention that certain "inactive" ingredients (which may or may not be present in each brand) are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug and same dosage). I hope this info helps! Have you had a chance to take either of them yet? ## I have taken both the oval orange and the round pink 30mg generic adderall's. I prefer the pink ones but i"m having a...

Suboxone and Adderall

I started subs four days ago I am taking a whole 8mg sub twice a day. I also take 45mg of adderall a day for ADD and i need the adderall because I am a college student is it harmful to take them together? The suboxone has done excellent for me, and has kept the oxy out of my mind. I got addicted to tabs when I was playing college baseball in order to play through two broken fingers and bum shoulder. So instead of doing a gut check time dealing with the pain through an ice bucket or taking some time off to heal up because i was just a freshman and i was battling it out for starting spot with a all-conference senior. I became immune to the tabs, so a player introduced me to oxy contin I was taking 80mg a day this continued into the fall season of my sophomore year until I tore the ligamen...

I have pain shooting from my left lower back. It runs down the left side to the foot. Also tingling. I am on 10mg oxycodone + 325mg acetaminophen. I've been on them for I think 3 yrs. So they are not working. My question is how do I go about telling my doctor that I need something stronger without sounding like an addict? Thanks for all answers. Greatly appreciated! ## Hello, Mack! How are you? Has there been any change? At this point, I don't think the concern is needing more medications, but to make sure that you are not experiencing a heart problem, which many such issues on the left side of your body could possibly indicate. Thus, it is best to just tell your doctor what is happening, including the pain you're experiencing, and go from there. However, do not ask them for...

How Long Does Soma Stay In Your Urine

How long does Soma stay in your urine?? My dr's office has a new machine that can detect ANYTHING even o.t.c meds.. I'm not suspose to be taking the soma anymore but its the only thing that helps me with my nerves & pain!! Also..does anyone know if it is a "controled substance" now?? I know whn I WAS perscribed to Soma..they was NOT controlled!!??? ## CEEPS: As with any drug, the amount you consume depends on the time it will be in your system. I am prescribed to SOMA and know for a fact that it is now considered a controlled substance. Anything you have to show a photo ID for at the pharmacy is also. This is just a guess, but I would think it takes 3-4 days to get out of your system. The good news is that Soma, along with a few other drugs have to be specifically te...

Receptor blocker gone by now after taking only 2mg at 8this morning of silicone with it being now 230??? ## Hello, Coco! How are you? I'm sorry, but it seems that autocorrect was having fun with you, so I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. Did you mean Suboxone and Methadone? Can you please post back and clarify? For the record, if anyone is curious, it takes about 72 hours, after taking Suboxone, or Subutex, for other opiates to be effective, again. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

There Are Three Manufacturers Who Make Methylphenidate
20 Replies RSS
The 3 Manufacturers are Mallinkrodt/Methylin, Sandoz and Watson Pharmaceuticals. On this day, December 3,2011 I learned that if a generic drug is back ordered in lots of different Pharmacies our HMO's will pay for the drug that is prescribed. All who are prescribed Methylphenidate 20 mg. are being turned away by CVS, RiteAid, including the pharmacies in some Giant food stores . If you are prescribed both forms of this drug do not let the Pharmacist fill one part of your prescriptions and if both are on 1 prescription sheet never trust anyone to complete the refill. They'll fill the one they have and as far as the other part, you lose! ## Finally my pharmacy failure has been explained. I went to my CVS Pharmacy and Talked with the manager about the crisis of this back order defen...

Lexapro Withdrawal
222 Replies RSS
I have been taking Lexapro 10mg once a day for about a year. I have had many unwanted side effects which according to my doctor there are very few side effects from Lexapro. He says it is a clean drug. Wrong. It did nothing to help me and I want off. My doctor refused to give me anti-anxiety meds to help with the withdrawals from Lexapro because once again, there are no withdrawals from Lexapro. Why do doctors lie about this. Why do pharmaceutical companies lie about this? I have read so much about people just losing it while trying to stop taking Lexapro. I have not taken it in about ten days after weaning off for about two months from 10mg to 2 mg a day. My nerves are a wreck, I am extremely irratable, and have slight headaches. This is a horrible drug with many long lasting withdrawa...

Contrave: Day two and no change
2 Replies RSS
I am on my second day of Contrave and have not noticed any change. I started the terrible headaches today and I'm not sure if I can take my Fioricet for them. Worried about an interaction. I am still very hungry and eat the same. No greasy foods just really hungry and crave sweets. How soon will it take before I see a difference or change in weight? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? Has there been any change? It usually takes awhile for most medications to reach their full level of efficacy in your body, to see if they will work for you, or not. Thus, the second day is far too soon to expect much in the way of resuls. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, anorexia, nervousness, and insomnia. The best results, if it works for you, will u...
