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??? Please help, cos the morphines burning a hole in my pocket!!! ## From what I could gather, there are drug interactions that apply to Morphine & Subutex (buprenorphine). 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... ...

Vivan for AHDH
my grandaughter was tol her son has ADHD. He is very argumentive, destructive, fowl mouthed also. The doctor put him on Vivan but it does no good. She is thinking of getting mental health treatmen. Is Vivan good for him? Is there another medication besides Vivan that he could be given. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank You...Mrs. K ## I'm assuming you meant the medication Vyvanse, which contains the active ingredient Lisdexamfetamine? How long has he been taking it? It can take a month or so for it to reach its full efficacy level in his body. 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 ...

Xanax and pain pills and liver
i take 14 mg of xanax and 8 10/325 hydocodone for pain a day. how long can my liver take all this before damage. i take them cause i have too and am under doctors care. also take heart meds too. thx. ## Respiratory arrest should be your worry right now. 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. ...

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 ... ...

methocarbam side effects
can I take ambien along with Methocarbam?Or vit d, metamucil ,\, metforim ## The side effect and contraindication profiles are not studied for VItamins and Supplements, as they are for prescription medications, so I cannot tell you much about using them with the VItamin D or the Metamucil. 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... ...

Endone 5mg ?
i have just taken 1, 5mg endone tablet. I am a diabetic, 1500mg metaformin + 2mg indopril + 1500mg valpro to help with depression. will the 5mg endone have an adverse effect because of these other medications ## The Endone contains the active ingredient Oxycodone, which is a narcotic and taking it with the Valproic Acid in the Valpro does increase the risk of depression of the central nervous system. It's not that they can't be used together, but your doctor should very carefully consider the dosages and they should be monitoring you regularly. Is your doctor aware of everything you are taking? ...

divalproex Er 500mg tab myl ## divalproex er 500mg myl if i take 2mg xanax, soma, and hydroco/acetamin 10-325 how will it affect me ## Well the combination of all of these medications does have the potential to be dangerous, since they can all cause depression of the central nervous system. Combining them all can cause additive effects that make it worse, so you may experience lowered heart rate, shallow breathing, lowered blood pressure and extreme fatigue and sedation.

Sulfamethoxazole Trimethoprim / Skin Hives
I took this medication and it cause a reaction of hives to my skin. And now its very irratating all over my body, what should I take now. Benadryl or cortizone is not helping. ## Have you talked to your doctor? A non-allergic skin rash can be a common side effect of antibiotics and that probably explains why it isn't responding to the other medications. You may just need to try a different antibiotic and give this one time to get out of your system. ...

Missed dose reaction
I take 600mg of gabapentin 3times daily for essential tremor. If I wait too long between doses I become confused dizzy and very tired. Also need to take upon rising in the AM. I Also have parkinsons but meds are not supposed to conflict.(azilect). Gabapentin works great for tremor but scary if I miss a dose. Any one else? ## How long have you been taking it? It's unusual to have a reaction that soon upon missing a dose. Learn more Gabapentin details here. However, since it is happening, what I'd suggest is your setting up some type of reminder system to avoid missing doses. I use an app on my iPhone that beeps whenever I need to take my next dose of medications, but even leaving yourself notes around the house could work. Have you tried any reminder methods? ...

Losartan and severe joint pain
I have been on Losartan for about 6 months now and can't take it anymore. I am having pain in all of my joints and it now has moved to my sternum. My doctor can't believe it is from the medication, but surprise.....when I don't take it I feel fine. It usually takes a few weeks to get out of my system. I had to do the same thing with another HBP medicine before. Losing weight, eating right, and exercising is the only way to go. Don't keep financing the Pharmaceutical companies. ## Hello, Lesley! How are you feeling now? I'm sorry that the Losartan was making you miserable. It really sounds like you don't have a very understanding doctor. I have been there and didn't find any BP medications that I could take, without becoming miserable, until I found a doctor t... ...

what is difference in clonidine0 1 mg and a benadryl
My son take clonidine 0.1 mg for sleep is it safe to give him a Benadryl if he runs out of his clonidine 0.1 mg ## Hi Rusty, Based on my research, Clonidine and Benadryl do have a drug interaction problem, in that, they may have additive effects on lowering your blood pressure when taken together or within the same time frame. Symptoms associated with low blood pressure may involve headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, or low pulse/heart rate. So even though these are two different types of medications (Benadryl being an allergy medicine and Clonidine being a blood pressure medicine), I personally wouldn't recommend using the Benadryl until you know for sure that the Clonidine is out of his system completely. I think it's just best to play it safe when it comes to thes... ...

Clonazepamside effetcts/lowering dosages
i was told by a doctor that clonazepam cannot be taken prn..i am a nurses aide..but i used to take clonazepam patient was takint 1mg 3xs a day and they just pulled her off after a wk and changed to prn..i was told there could be serious side effects from this true? ## It can be taken PRN, but it is not as effect as if it is constantly in your system and taken on a regular basis. This is true of most medications. As to whether or not the change is dangerous, it really depends on how long she has been taking it and how her body reacts to not taking it on a regular schedule. There is the potential that withdrawal can cause seizures, but she would have to go for quite awhile without taking any to put herself there. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Clonazepa... ...
