Skipping a dose of Viibyrd! Don't do it!
1 Reply RSS
Don't skip or miss a dose. I ran low and skipped a day and then cut a 40 mg tablet in 1/2. Did this with Prozac from time to time or missed a dose, never any issues. Additionally, I had a bad cold and added cold medicine, another big no no. I experienced night dreams, night paralysis, feeling of not being able to breath at night upon waking, terribly itch skin all over, coma feeling upon waking, confusion, loss of direction and extreme agitation. I took one 40 mg pill last night, all of the aforementioned symptoms subsided. I had to make several apologies at work today for my agitation just yesterday. My temperament returned to before, which was much improved on Viibyrd over Prozac. Good med, bad med, I am not sure. But with such improvement just getting my dosage back to where my d... ...

Subutex Doctor - East Coast - Help Me Find One Please!!!!
208 Replies RSS
I have been on Subutex for a year. My Doctor has retired, abruptly. I cannot find another physician willing to prescribe me Subutex (24 mg. daily) instead of Suboxone. I travel a lot w/ work.

Can someone help?! If you wish to email me you may ## If you need a doctor in south jersey to help you get off oxy's and put you on subutex/suboxine - I prefer subutex because I got deathly ill on suboxine.

5 Replies RSS
the new white norcos 10-325T do not work.what did they change in them and why.the yellow ones wrked fine and now they aren't making them anymore.are they testing to see if our pain is real? ## From what I could gather, you're certainly not alone in this matter. There's actually a fairly large discussion thread here (linked below) talking about this very problem with the "weaker" white version replacing the "stronger" yellow tablets. Perhaps some of the responses there can at least offer a bit more insight as to why this is happening and how others might be coping with it: Discuss/White-Watson-10mg-325-853-245408.htm I hope this helps! ## I agree.

7 Replies RSS
I will try to make this as short as possible. I have been suffering with Chronic Pain to my right shoulder since 2005. I fell on black ice, dislocated the shoulder, broke the humerus head and cracked the bone in the socket. 3 surgeries later I'm still suffering with the pain. Since the injury I've been on Lortab 10/500. Started out with 4 per day, I'm at 7 per day and cannot go higher due to the Tylenol. My pain management doctor's PA switched me to 5 Lortab per day with 2-15mg Morphine Sulfate ER. I took the Morphine at 6:10pm, by 7pm, I broke out in a rash, have a migraine, can't stop sweating, my throat and ears itch, I've become short tempered. My surgeon wanted my pm doctor to switch me to Percocet and cut out the Lortab all together. I am 40, single mom, fu... ...

Hello there sick ones...I started taking bactrim yesterday afternoon b/c i contracted a case of cellulitis on my ear. Ew. So anyway, I was just wondering...does this medicine make you feel like s*** before it helps you get better or what? I ask b/c the pain that im feeling is more or less just a really really uncomfortable healing feeling i guess. Maybe it's just workin hard at killin the bacteria so thats why it makes you sore. I haven't had any of those other side effects like the rashes people have posted about. I get a slight itching on my skin but i just see that as the medicine working. This pill is powerful thats probly why it makes us feel like s***, but at least you can get a sense that after taking it, you're original problem hopefully goes away. I'm gonna go t... ...

benadryl gel
1 Reply RSS
when using benadryl gel can you use benadryl capsules also. I am also using hydroxyzine 10mg. this is for a problem with itching ## Yes, you will not absorb enough from the gel to make a significant difference and cause an overdose, with the topical meds like that, you absorb a very, very small percentage of the ingredients, so you will be fine using the oral med as well. Many docs advise you to do so if the problem continues, and many of them provide stuff with a much higher dosage than what is available in these products, or advise people to double up! ...

If it is prescribed for you daughter, you shouldn't use. You should see your doctor to get something prescribed for you. Betamethasone is a steroid and while it can help with allergic reactions, such as poison ivy, it could also make some skin conditions worse, so if you don't actually have poison ivy, you could be putting yourself at risk.
