Double dose of 15mg meloxicam same day by accident
2 Replies RSS
I may have taken a double dose of my 15mg Meloxicam by accident, albeit, c. 7 hours apart? What should I do? What are possible consequences? ## Hello, John! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? Generally, that wouldn't be enough to cause an overdose, but you may experience more side effects than usual, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. However, it is always best to inform your doctor, so they can check for any possible harm, if they feel it is warranted. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have consulted doctor. He checked my BP , heart beat etc., and found that everything is normal. He advised me to take one tablet for Acidity. I have taken taken light food and one tablet for Acidity.. I h...

Need help to get my pain medications from an online pharmacy
49 Replies RSS
I have been under pain management for over 14 years. I never had an issue until the last few months of course I live in Florida. If you do not live in FL you will not understand what is happening. Due to the lovely pill mills and abusers we are unable to get some medications that we need. Most pain mgrs. will not write certain scripts because of the DEA. What most people may not be aware is that to control the amount of pills prescribed in Florida the DEA will only ship so much to each pharmacy. Once they are out they can not reorder they have to wait until the next month before the next shipment comes in this not only creates a problem when trying to fill a prescription but it can be viewed as pharmacy jumping. A pharmacy can refuse to fill our prescription if you are from another city...

metzok 25 plus amlong 2 side effects
1 Reply RSS
I am 35 years old, taking metzok 25 after breakfast and amlong 2.5 mg after dinner. Is there any side effects using these tablets daily for blood pressure? ## All medications carry the risk of causing side effects. The NIH lists the typical ones for these medications as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. However, it is far more risky to let blood pressure remain uncontrolled, since that could result in heart attack, stroke, or congestive heart failure, any of which may be fatal. Is there anything else I can help with?

gabapentin withdrawals
215 Replies RSS
being taken off of neurontin/gabapentin after seven years. crying, anxious, and what no one mentions itching all over! have tried antihistamines, cortizone creams but w/ no relief. ## yes this is normal I went through the same thing. I was on 3600 for eight years. I weaned off very slowly. I started weening off in 2008. I am now down to 400mg and go down about 100 a week. Its so awful ## These types of problems are normal from a sudden withdrawal of any medication that affects brain chemicals, which is exactly what Gabapentin does, since it was initially discovered as an anticonvulsant. Unfortunately, since you were on it for so long, it is probably going to take several weeks for these effects to wear off, though they should gradually improve and lessen in severity. As to the itching, ...

Olmezest Ch 10 and blood pressure levels
1 Reply RSS
I am taking Olmezest Ch 20 in the morning and Atorfit cv10 at night; moreover I also take a urimax D daily. Very recently my blood pressure has been fluctuating. Sometimes it goes to 100/55 or 100/60. Should I reduce the dose to Olmezest Ch 10? ## Are you experiencing any symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, or drowsiness?

They are the only person who could give you a definitive answer.

how long before testopel pellets start working?
638 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. ...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
20 Replies RSS
I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...

withdrawal symptoms of cymgen
1 Reply RSS
I've been on 60mg of Cymgen for almost three years. It is been used to treat fibromyalgia. I came off it cold turkey 5 weeks ago with my doctor's consent. It was causing dangerously high levels of blood pressure. Two weeks in my blood pressure is back to the normal range. However it has been 5 weeks of hell wth the withdrawal symptoms and I don't see an end I sight. Every time I see a glimmer of hope I come crashing down again. I went to work for a total of three days in January, and for only a few hours at that! I'm at my wits end. I've tried herbal products o help ease the symptoms as well as Motillium and Mittal for the extreme nausea, nothing works. Is there an end in sight?? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Have you consulted your doctor, again? Generally, such sym...

Severe dryness on Trintillex
1 Reply RSS
I have just tapered off Wellbutrin and Cipralex and ramped up from 5mg to 10mg Trintillex. Luckily I wasn't hit with any nausea, which I had been dreading, and have more energy (which for me feels a bit manic compared to the sloth I'm used to). Skin, eye, nose dryness is almost unbearable though. My eyes sting, and even with moisturizer, my face is cracking. Will this ease up as I adjust to the med? Will any oil supplements help? I was terrified to change meds after a previous nightmarish experience. I don't want dehydration to be the make it break for this med. ## Those aren't normal side effects, according to the NIH, but may be due to the combination of stopping the others and then starting this new medication. You may also experience headache, somnolence, and weight ...

Documenting Daily Prolia Side Effects
9 Replies RSS
I am a 57 year old female who has -2.5 bone density scores on hips and -3.4 in the spine. I used Forteo for 2 years, but because I was scared to death to try any of the biophosphates and Prolia - I lost the benefit from Forteo. It was minimal improvement at best. I had 3 different doctors in 3 different cities tell me that I should use Prolia. I had the injection on Friday, April 11th. I had put the shot off for 6 months after my pharmacy delivered it to the doctor office due to fear and all the forums. So -- if anyone wants to know information, I will keep you posted. Since yesterday, I have had itching in a variety of places and I had a tough time falling asleep last night. I also have some minor cramping in my calves and thighs. So far this is bearable, but I am trusting God to get m...
