hydrocodone and divalproex sodium safe to tske compazine
I'm currently taking 500mg hydrocodone/apap every six hours for pain plus 250mg divalproex sodium twice daily. Is it alright to also take 10mg compazine for nausea or are there any side effects I should be aware of? ## What has your doctor advised? Generally, it is listed that the Compazine should be avoided with both of the other two medications. When combined with the Divalproex, it increases the risk of depression of the central nervous system. And with the Hydrocodone, it can increase the chances of that, plus it can cause severe constipation issues due to paralyzed bowel. ...

IT SEEMS THAT I STARTED GETTING MORE FREQUENT HEADACHES THAN BEFORE, SO MY OTHER DOCTOR PRESCRIBED OPIRAMATE 100 MG. ONCE DAY AT BEDTIME. THIS SEEMS TO BE WORKING BUT ARE THERE ANY BAD SIDE EFFECTS BY USING THESE DRUGS DAILY? ## Both of these medications can cause depression of the central nervous system.

Finding A Dr in Charleston WV that will prescribe pain meds
I recently was going to a pain clinic for my pain medication and was discharged because I had over the counter medicine in my system. I need to find a good doctor that will write pain madicine and wont discarge you over stupid stuff like taking over the counter medicine. ## I am very sorry that this happened to you. However, did you sign a contract agreeing to such terms in order to be treated there? And what was the medication you had in your system? As to looking for a new doctor, you are going to have to stick with pain management. Under the new laws, general practitioners will no longer be able to prescribe pain medications for long-term chronic pain treatment. Another tip I can give you is when you call a new doctor to set up an appointment, don't ask them if they will prescrib... ...

I took the liberty to check for interactions that may be possible between the drugs you are currently taking. My findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions between these drugs. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients.

Finding A Dr in Charleston WV and surrounding areas that will write pain medicine.
I recently was going to a pain clinic for my pain medication and was discharged because I had over the counter medicine in my system. I need to find a good doctor that will write pain madicine and wont discarge you over stupid stuff like taking over the counter medicine. ## What OTC medication was it? I'm very sorry this happened to you, but if you agreed to such terms in order to be treated by them, then they were well within their rights to dismiss you and most other pain management doctors will have similar policies. Learn more pain management details here. And you are going to have to stay in pain management, due to the new laws, since a general practitioner will no longer be able to prescribe narcotic medications for long-term pain management treatment. Unfortunately, that mean... ...

ambroxol tablet 30 mg could I cut it in half and 4 months daughter my doctor gave it to me before but here in Canada they will not
Could I give half of 30 mg ambroxol to my daughter? My doctor didn't recommend it but as a parent I want my daughter who is 2 yrs and 4 months stop coughing so I' m thinking to give it t0 her. My doctor gave it to me when I was back home from the Phils. ## Hi Ann, If your doctor didn't recommend that you give this medication to your child, then I imagine the safest thing to do would be to listen to him/her. I have read that it isn't safe to give a child under the age of 2 any cough/cold medication. At your child's age, there is no way to know how medications could effect her system and her growth. Have you tried giving her a hot bath or used a humidifier in her room? The steam may help to loosen up her cough. Here is a link to a page on the FDA site with information ... ...

chantix side effects
How long does chantix stay in your system, could it still be effecting me afer 9 months? ## No! There are no medications that stay in your system for that long. The only way you would still be feeling effects was if it had caused some type of permanent body/organ damage, which I am sure would have been detected long ago. Chantix contains the active ingredient Varenicline,it is a stop smoking aid. Common side effects during use can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and abnormal dreams. Did you have any other questions? ## You say that no medication can stay in your system that long. Hmmn, interesting concept. So no medicine/drug can stay in your system that long. So people who took a medicine/drug that affected their brain lets say back in the 60's or even possibly now of any sai... ...

I took the subutex at 9.30am, its now 4pm, how long do I have to wait till it gets out my system???

Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Ask your doctor before using morphine together with buprenorphine. These medications are generally not used together. Using these medications together may reduce the pain relieving effects of morphine. It could also cause you to have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms if you are receiving prolonged the... ...

over-dose possible?
I was wondering if it was possible for a 180lb woman with an extremely high tolerance to over-dose on 32.16mg of klonopin and 180mg of Morphine and if so how long would it take to actually die from it? ## Hi - I am wondering if your sister in law had consumed any alcoholic beverages around the time those drugs were taken? Alcohol can seriously react and depress the respiratory system when consumed in combination with narcotic medications such as Morphine. Additionally, Clonazepam and Morphine taken together can result in moderate interactions, including CNS (central nervous system) and respiratory depression. I am sorry to hear about your loss. If you don't mind me asking, do you know what the cause of death was? More specifically, was it cardiac arrest, respiratory failure, or anyt... ...

Is Vivan good for him? Is there another medication besides Vivan that he could be given. Any advice would be appreciated.

Otherwise yes, there are other medications that they can try, such as Adderall: Has she spoken to his doctor about it? ## How long is it in your system ...

E-mail everyone before you fall out....... ## heart meds is for pots sydrome and tachycardia. its under control with meds ## Having those conditions under control with the medications is not what was being referred to, what was intended was the possibility of respiratory arrest that can occur from taking that high of an amount of Xanax and the narcotic each day. Both of the other medications can cause depression of the central nervous system. So, while you may be worried about long term liver damage, CNS depression should also be a conce... ...

An 627 Round White Pill
Can tramadol be taken with methadone? ## Has your doctor advised you to use them both? Both medications can cause depression of the central nervous system, so a doctor has to take the dosages under careful consideration, when prescribing them together. Therefore, they should never be used together, without a doctor's approval and supervision. It also means that this combination might not be appropriate for someone that suffers breathing problems, such as COPD, or a person that has liver problems. ...

Hi my mom is on 75 mg of lyrica and she can not refill her script for a few days, ny mother in law gave me an old prescription which her late husband took. they are the same 75mg Lyrica but they are 6 years old! will it hurt my mother to take these? I know that some old medications can acually poison your system. Please let me know. ## Hello, Mandi! How are you? They will no longer be effective and should you should just dispose of them. Lyrica is not a narcotic or controlled substance, so she should be able to get a refill a few days early, without a problem. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

possibly antidepressant ## My fiance is currently taking Feroquel and I am curious about the medication. Is it like Xyprexa and does it have to build in your system before it fully takes into effect? Also, is it possible to get anything prescribed for as a mood stabilizer? Please I need facts. ## I believe the medication you are referring to is Seroquel. Most medications will take a few weeks to reach their full effect in your body. As to a mood stabilizer, there are some medications for that, but he would need to consult with his doctor about them and see if they are appropriate. ...

Verapamil Hcl Er 180 Mg
What time of day should I take it? With or without food? ## What has your doctor advised? Normally, they want to take these types of medications in the morning, so it is in your system and working during the peak times of day that you are most active and your BP or heart issues may experience the most fluctuations. It can be taken with, or without food, so you can decide that for yourself, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions. It can cause some nausea, so some people find it better if they take it with food, to help minimize that. ...

Zolpidem With Nortriptyline
I would like to take nortriptyline(10mg) with zolpidem(10mg) at night, are these two medications ok to take together? I'm having some lower back pain. ## Has your doctor advised you to take them both? Both the Nortriptyline and the Zolpidem can cause depression of the central nervous system, so when they are used together, the dosage has to be carefully considered by your doctor and they should be monitoring you on a regular basis. ## My Dr. did prescribe these two medication, but not to be taken together,, she was trying to find a solution to my sleeplessness besides ambien,,nortriptyline did not help with sleep as I had hoped,,,thought it might help with some pain,,I will not take the notriptyline, does not sound like a safe combo. ...

Fentanyl Patch Withdrawal
I sit with a 73 year old lady. I take care of all her meds and refills. I thought she had a refill on file...long story short,she didn't. She is on 25 mg patches. Her patch was supposed to be changed this morning at 9 but they wont be ready til mnday morning. Should I give her as needed lortab to keep her out of withdrawal or will she be fine til Monday from Saturday? ## HI Cheryl, I believe that the lady you care for should be fine until Monday since it's only a couple days and there should still be some of the Fentynal medication in her system. However, if you she doesn't get the medication Monday she might experience some signs of withdrawal ie: nausea, vomiting, insomnia, headaches etc.. You may want to consider refilling her medications a week ahead of time just so you ... ...

However, concomitant use of the Ambien and the Methocrabamol could result in Central Nervous System depression, such as slowed breathing and heart rate, so you must use them with caution. Is you doctor aware that you are taking all of these? ...

Dependent On Percocet
Back surgery 2 yrs ago and I have been taking percocet for that amount of time to help with back and leg pain 1 or 2 tabs a day ...... how do I stop am sure if I stop suddenly there will be some effect to my system ## Usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. In addition to that, I'd also suggest making yourself a tapering schedule on a calendar to track your progress and keep you on the right path to complete your goal within a specific time frame (even if it takes a few months). Without a way to track your progre... ...
