I stopped taking xarelto after 1 month post TKR. After 3 months, I still get dark, even raised , scarey-looking bruises if I bump my arms, especially. Don't seem to be lessening. Will this go away?

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... ...

5mg of zanax with 10mg methadone
1 Reply RSS
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. Do you currently have a GP that you see regularly? They may be able to refer you to some... ...

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. ...

Tapentadol Dose Compared To Suboxone
1 Reply RSS
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... ...

A Benificial Sideeffect Of Hydrcodone
2 Replies RSS
I am 57 yr old Male, I have congestive heart failure with injection ratio of 15%. It appears that when I take hydrocodone I have more energy and less breathing problems. Has this been found to be a benificial side affect. When I dont take it I dont have the desire or energy to do anything. ## Hydrocodone is used in some prescription cough syrups, because it has been know to help with cough and congestion. Another way it may be helping is through the fact that it causes depression of the central nervous system, so it may be helping your heart by slowing it down, so it doesn't work as hard. Is your doctor aware that you are taking it? Such use should be monitored on a regular basis. And what medications do you take for your heart and the CHF? ## Yes my Cardiologist is aware of this pe... ...

300 mg of Gabepenten & citalopram of 40 mg
1 Reply RSS
I went into La-La land when i took both of those together with my 2 10 mg hydrocodone today. Which one hsc to go and I think it is the citalogram--not the gabenten?! ## From checking the interactions, each of these can cause central nervous system depression and they can all pretty much react with each other to make it must more pronounced. Thus, there really isn't any one of them to blame. Some people separate them, to avoid these synergistic effects by taking them an hour or more apart. Other people may need to discontinue one or more of the medications or need a dosage adjustment. Are there any questions or comments? ...

 Hydrochlorothiazide, HCTZ + Metoprolol
Hydrochlorothiazide, abbreviated HCTZ, HCT, or HZT, is a diuretic drug of the thiazide class that acts by inhibiting the kidneys' ability to retain water. This reduces the volume of the blood, decreasing blood return to the heart and thus cardiac output and, by other mechanisms, is believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance.[2] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, a list of the most important medications needed in a basic health system.[3] Contents ...
clonaxepam was easier to kick than xanax
Post a Reply
I was on a 1mg dose, once daily and became pregnant. My doctors told me i could continue use. It scared me too much so i stopped immediately. I had no withdrawls. Panic attacks however, did hit me once and a while while pregnant. It took 2 weeks to leave my system. Im on 2mg xr of xanax now and i can feel my body needing my medication when it wears off unlike instant release xanax. Not sure why? I wouldnt suggest anyone just stop taking these medications without doctor supervision and a plan set up by your doctor. Everyones body is different and reacts differently to any medication. If your taking these and not prescribed them, tell your doctor. If hes any good. He can help you get off of them. Honesty is key. ...

Can Nitrofur-Macr 100mg be taken with keppra, trileptal, enalapril and prednisone? ## Hi TA, There's actually quite a few different interactions found between every medication you mentioned "except" for can view these interactions below: Enalapril and Prednisone: Corticosteroids may antagonize the effects of antihypertensive medications by inducing sodium and fluid retention. Prednisone and Trileptal (oxcarbazepine): Coadministration with oxcarbazepine may decrease the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. Keppra (levetiracetam) and Trileptal (oxcarbazepine): Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause thes... ...

L Tryptophan amino acid And Noco pain medication
1 Reply RSS
Can a person take l- tryptophan and the pain killer norco ## L-Tryptophan is a supplement that's used to help with sleep issues, however, as a supplement, it has not been tested for interactions with prescription medications. Learn more Tryptophan details here. And what you have to be careful of is the fact that Norco contains the narcotic Hydrocodone, so it can cause depression of the central nervous system and this may be worsened if it is combined with the Tryptophan. Learn more Norco details here. Thus, the best advice I can give you would be to check with your doctor, or pharmacist, before combining the two. Are there any other comments or questions? ...

I'm afraid to start taking Bupropion with Tramadol

I was just prescribe Bupropion 150mg 2x daily. I also take Tramadol which was prescribed by the same Dr. I'm afraid to start the Bupropion because of the drug interaction btwn the two. Should I be worried? Can I cut the tablets in half & take 75mg 2x daily? ## Hi Donna, After looking over the interaction between these two medications, I can certainly see why you might be scared to take them together. The interaction I found states the following: "MONITOR CLOSELY: The risk of seizures may be increased during coadministration of tramadol with any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, neuroleptic agents, central nervous system stimulants, opioids, tricy... ...

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. ...

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.

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?
