I take 5 mgs. of percocet twice daily for approximately 2years now. I am so tired of taking them. today I didn't take any and I feel a pressure in my head. My last one was about 12 midnight. Is this gonna get worse? ## Hi BB, The exact progression of oxycodone withdrawal may be different for each individual. However, from what I hear, symptoms tend to get worse over the first few days before leveling out. Usually for drugs like this, the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, under a doctor's supervision; if possible. Failure to taper may result in much more severe withdrawal symptoms than you might originally anticipate; and could even prolong the withdrawal process over several weeks. For some people with a high tolerance, 10mgs is not a lot. But since you'v... ...

GLYX-13 open label study is now scheduled to begin in June, according to my local study center. I will update as I get more info. ## What is an open label study? Is is another trial? AND CAN ANYONE SAY HOW ONE GETS TO PARTICIAPATE IN THE STUDY?? I just learned about GLYX-13 and have been trying to find out what's going on with it. I've been depressed all my life, have tried everything I can think of, and nothing helps. Not drugs, not exercise, not psychotherapy, not meditation…. I got to the point I just wasn't willing to try anything else anymore. But this sounds different, and hopeful. I would be so grateful if I could get help... ## @post #1, An open label trial is basically a type of clinical trial in which both the researchers as well as the participants know what... ...

it is a blue and white capsule ## I am sorry, could you please either double check the name/spelling of the medication or post back with the imprint on the tablet itself, so I can identify it and provide you with information? There is nothing listed under both of those in the prescription drug databases and your description does not provide enough information since the size, shape and color of a medication means nothing. U.S. law requires that all prescription drugs have a unique imprint on the tablets or capsules so the medication can be identified by manufacturer, substance and dosage. However, the way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, so there are many, many pills on the market, both over the counter and prescription that meet that description. ...

What's the difference . Got me takeing 1every 4to 6 hours and 180 a month. Is that ok? Or should I be worried? ## Hi Todd, Both of these medications are narcotics that are classified as controlled substances. Although they have similar side effects and drug interactions, they are different drugs. Oxycodone is generally considered to be more potent than Hydrocodone (although some people may find Hydrocodone to work better, due to individual differences in how people react to medications). It is also available as a single-ingredient medication or in combination with other active ingredient... ...

What are the side effects of taking stamio beta,asp atorva and telmisartan ip everyday ? ## My Doctor has advised me to take one Asp Atorva 75 tablet every night after dinner. Is it safe? The doctor is treating me for my diabates and BP. ## Well, there are risks associated with taking any medication, especially for long periods of time, but in reality, the risks of not taking them and letting such conditions continue out of control are far, far greater than any possible dangers from the drugs to treat them. There is a small risk of these types of medications causing liver or kidney damage, but uncontrolled high blood pressure can eventually cause a heart attack, stroke or congestive heart failure. So, in truth, safety is relative. Medications aren't necessarily safe, but the medical... ...

hydrocodone expiration

I found hydrocodone 7.5 and it from 1997 is it dangerous to take because of the tylonel or ibuprofen in it?? ## Hi Jb, While there may be a lot of conflicting information around the topic of expired medication, a Harvard Medical School family health article states that, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. I don't know whether or not the drug you have happens to be one of these drugs from the study.... ...

If so, it is not a drug, it is an herbal supplement and yes, even some of the natural herbal products can cause problems if you're a heart patient, because they may act as stimulants. Learn more herbalism details here. Some of them can be just as dangerous as drugs. Thus, I can only advise you to consult your doctor, before using it, so they can look over the ingredients and see if it is safe.

I was baffled as to why my hair which is naturally thick and healthy is thinning at an alarming rate. U reckon it is the Wellbutrin side effect ? ## I asked whether anyone had hair thinning, and I see that some people did. Also, heavy sweating, especially at night.

psoriasis and melatonin
1 Reply RSS
Has there been any work done on using Melatonin as a possible assistor in controlling psoriasis. ## Based on what I've read, there actually have been studies demonstrating Melatonin's promising benefits for managing psoriasis. According to an article on Livestrong, "It is suggested that the role of melatonin in psoriasis should probably be further investigated, as it appears that this hormone might be linked with two other hormones (growth hormone, also known as GH, and prolactin), which also appear to be lower in patients with psoriasis." I would keep in mind though that melatonin and other natural supplements shouldn't be used to replace any drugs or therapies recommended by your doctor. However from personal experience, I know that a healthy diet may also improve ... ...

I have Medicaid & I'm under alot of stress & need a dr to prescribe Xanex in the Dallas Texas area They have to accept Medicaid as I have no insurance ## Medicaid Rules are Wild. Xanax for Children! Texas has a handful of physicians taking advantage of Medicaid rules by prescribing inappropriate medications for children. This is not only bad for the kids, but eats up Medicaid money that should go to other people. The problem was detailed in an editorial in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Here are excerpts: With little oversight and apparent carte blanche, a relative handful of Texas physicians wrote $47 million worth of Medicaid prescriptions for powerful antipsychotic and anti-anxiety drugs over the past two years, according to a Star-Telegram analysis.

Round Red Pill No Imprint
11 Replies RSS
The pill has no imprint at all, is a dark red color (almost maroon), and is 1cm wide. I have found a couple on the floor of my closet and have no idea what they are or where they came from. ## I have the same question. I have someone taking several of these pills at one time along with a combination of other pills. I have no idea what this pill is and cant find it anywhere on the internet. It is a round/red speckled pill with no markings on it. ## Because this pill has no markings, it is going to be difficult to determine what this tablet contains, unless you would pay to have it lab tested, somewhere. If these are in fact prescription pills, It's highly unlikely that they are manufactured in the U.S, since there are no imprints. U.S. law requires that all prescription drugs have a ... ...
