what does anyone know of pain pumps and what drs in new jersey use them ## There is no listing of doctors that use them. They are really only used in cases of severe pain, where someone either can't take oral medications, or they have exhausted other pain control options. Learn more pain amanagement details here. So, it's really not something that you can just walk into a doctor and ask for, they are last resort types of treatments.

Can I still take MORPHINE SULFATE IR 15 MG TAB after 8 hours of morphine cr 15 mg tablet and whats he difernce between morphine cr and ir? ## Hi Keith, To answer your question, the 'CR' stands for "Controlled Release" - which offers pain patients a longer duration of its effects. The 'IR' stands for "Immediate Release" - which is absorbed into your system all at once for a more concentrated delivery. If you were legally prescribed both forms of Morphine and you're not just taking it recreationally (like other's I've noticed), I would recommend contacting your doctor about proper dosing protocols for switching between the two dosage forms. With such a potent medication, I personally think it would be vital to have the dosing regimen adjusted fo... ...

I would like to start the first prep early so I can get to sleep early the night before my colonoscopy. How early can the first dose be taken? ## Hello, Are you referring to the Suprep Bowel Kit? If so, I read that Suprep Bowel Prep Kit should be used as a split-dose regimen, that basically means that you take two 6-ounce bottles of Suprep. The first 6-ounce bottle should be taken the evening prior to your colonoscopy and the second 6-ounce bottle is taken the morning of your colonoscopy. Be sure to drink additional water like the instructions for use recommend. Always follow your doctor’s instructions on when to begin using the Suprep Bowel Prep Kit.

Advil Patch
2 Replies RSS
Are there less gi complications from using the patch than taking the pills? ## In one way or another the drug itself is going to have to metabolize, but I do believe a patch would present less GI discomfort for the sole reason that there are less binders and fillers than there would be in a tablet. It is my understanding that these so-called inactive ingredients are the root cause of many side effects. Not only that, but certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. I think that's why so many people react differently to the same medication. The medication is the same, but the binders and fillers are different in each brand. I hope this helps to answer your question! ... ...

Metoprolo Er Tab Suc 100mg Metoprolol Tartrate Abs
2 Replies RSS
are these the same drug? I have both and want to be sure they are the same. ## Metoprolol Succinate is an extended-release medication and Metoprolol Tartrate is an immediate-release medication. Because Metoprolol Tartrate is an immediate release tab, it would most likely require the patient to take additional pills throughout the day in comparison to the extended release version. Additionally, generics may also have different levels of potency (as they are allowed to contain up to 20% more or less of the actual active ingredient). Furthermore, each tablet has its own composition of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) that can also significantly effect the absorption rate of the drug itself, making it more or less effective overall. I hope this info helps to answer your question! ## T... ...
