I am taking pradaxa and want to change to a one dose a day drug. I have afib and want to make sure it is safe. I have only been on pradaxa for about 4-5 months. ## Hi Don, Generally, determining the safety of a drug is something your doctor should do based on your medical records and other personal health factors. But as far as any interactions go, I would suggest waiting till the Pradaxa is out of your system before starting up with Xarelto. Reason being is that there are potentially unsafe interactions between these two drugs. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Talk to your doctor before using Pradaxa (dabigatran) together with Xarelto (rivaroxaban). Combining these medications can increase the risk of serious or life-threatening bleeding complications. If t... ...

Make it go away. The rash on my hands is beyond belief since I was prescribed Pantoprazole. I am using fresh aloe and it only provides temporary relief. I just want the rash to go away. I have a weak auto-immune system and it looks like I cannot fight this one off. ## Hello, Marsha! How are you? It isn't normal for a rash from a systemic medication to be isolated to just a certain area of the body, such as your hands. Have you been exposed to anything else new? IS the rash itchy or just a red noticeable rash? Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications? ...

Abilify Tapering Off
1 Reply RSS
My son safely tapered off Abilify. His last dose was Saturday July 4th. Curious how long the drug remains in his system. And, once it's completely gone from his blood stream, will there be any withdrawal symptoms I need to watch for? He is non verbal, profoundly disabled, otherwise I would ask him if he is feeling any withdrawals. Thanks! ## By now the drug is certainly out of his system, as I know this reply is late from when you last posted. But regarding your concerns on withdrawal symptoms I would try to watch specifically for any signs of depression, irritability, and other mood-related changes of that nature. Tapering the dose down as he did, should've lessened the possibility of any severe withdrawal symptoms. However, because everyone responds to these medications differ... ...

Can you take Diclofenac Sod when taking Cipro ## Actually, these two medications aren't generally prescribed together, due to the fact that combining them increases the risk of stimulation of the central nervous system and seizures. On the Ciprofloxacin Details page under Interactions it says "They may also interact with the GABA A receptor and cause neurological symptoms; this effect is augmented by certain nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs." Have they both been prescribed for you? ## yes ive been prescribed the two drugs ...

bisphosphonates aclasta for paget's bone disease, fms
1 Reply RSS
After taking strong oral doses of fosomax for pagetic shin bone, I developed fibromyalgia and am hesitant to have an aclasta infusion of a similar bisphosphonate to fosomax injected, which would last 2 years in my system. This treatment may possibly prevent further progress of paget's bone disease in my shin but I am hesitant to have this procedure as I think I am allergic to it and may make myself even more ill. ## Hello, Susannah? How are you? Have you been officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia? The reason I ask is because some of the side effects of these medications can be very similar to it. As reported by the FDA, people have experience joint/muscle aches, headaches, abdominal pain, dizziness, vertigo and alopecia. What makes you think you're allergic to it? Symptoms of a... ...

allergies to amoxicillin
1 Reply RSS
I am allergic to amoxicillin, and my doctor gave me augmentin. I did not know this antibiotic contained amoxicillin (and I am guessing he overlooked it), and it almost killed me. If you get this, make sure you are not allergic to any of the cillin drugs~ ## Yes, Augmenting contains Amoxicillin with Clavulanic Acid and should not be used if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. The safest thing to do is to make sure that your pharmacy records your allergy in their computer system, that way all medications will be checked against this information and if they find something that isn't safe for you to take, they will not give you the prescription and will contact your doctor for an alternative. I am sorry to hear you had such a problem, but in the future, make sure that you do wha... ...

I took a 10mg Methadone at 8:00 AM and nothing since, is it safe to take a .5 mg of zanax now? ## Hello, Jinny! How are you? If they've both been prescribed for you by doctors who are aware that you're taking both medications. Otherwise, combining them isn't safe, especially if your body is not tolerant to such medications. Both of them can cause sedation and depression of the central nervous system, so you may inadvertently overdose. These effects can cause symptoms such as extreme drowsiness, dizziness and shallow breathing, which has the potential to be fatal. These medications also carry the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I have severe anxiety and I have no insurance and need to find a doctor that can prescribe Xanax or klonopin ## Then you would have to pay in Cash. This forum assumes you have the money to get the items you need. ## Then you would have to pay in Cash. ## This website really doesn't assume anything about anyone. As to the fact that you have no insurance, that is actually likely to create a problem, when looking for medications such as this, since they are known to be habit forming and commonly abused. Not having insurance and paying cash means the person may be risky, because it is much easier for them to doctor and pharmacy hop to try to game the system and get more medications than they should.

Break down of Medication in My Body
Post a Reply
Recently was accused by my pain doc of using morphine and hydromorphone. I am prescribed oxycontin, oxycodone plus fioricet with codeine by my neurologist for migraines. I am not sure but was told by my pharmacist that codeine breaks down as morphine and hydromorphone in the body. I do not cheat on my medications. He also did not see the drugs he prescribes in my system which are the oxycontin and oxycodone. My only answer was I assume I had a bad migraine and had taken the fioricet/codeine. I can't take the other meds when I have a migraine due to nausea. I would really like a coposetic answer because I do not take morphine or hydromorphone. I am tired of being accused of something I haven't done. I feel if I have an answer to the break down of the codeine it would be so helpful. ...

I am coming off of 4 years of suboxone and have not been sucessful in im hearing it is easier to withdraw from pain pills...experienced that myself years back..i would like to know the comparable dose of 2mg suboxone to a 100mg Tapentadol...thanks ## Hi Michele, Just to clarify, are you hoping to use the Tapentadol to help with withdrawal from Suboxone? Or are you wanting to switch medications? Either way, this could have negative effects since using Suboxone (buprenorphine) together with tapentadol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. I wouldn't recommend starting the Tapentadol with the Suboxone still in your system. In regards to detoxing from the Suboxone, usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking th... ...
