Doctors in Louisiana that prescribe methadone for chronic pain
I have been taking 120 mg of methadone for approximately 5 years. My husbands job transferred us from Florida to Louisiana where I found a pretty good pain doc. He is now running scared and wants to take me off of methadone. Methadone has given me a good quality of life; I am able to work and be a productive member of society. My doctor is unwilling or unable to assist me in finding a new doctor who will continue my meds. Oh yeah, I have been the route of blocks and injections and gotten little if any relief. I'm tired of being branded a drug seeker-I have years of medical records that back up my claims and verify the dosages that I've been on-what drug seekers have this kind of back up? I am looking for a Louisiana doctor, but am willing to travel (within reason of course). Ple... ...

Doctors Prescribeing Methadone
i need a doctor in DE or PA THAT WILL PRESCRIBE METHADONE I CAN NOT GO TO CLINIC EV4RY DAY PLEASE HELP????? PLEASE ANYONE I CAnt sleep im in so much pain ## Have you been going to an addiction treatment clinic? I'm sorry you're suffering, but if that's the case I'm afraid your options are limited. Regular private physicians are not allowed to prescribe Methadone for any type of addiction treatment. Learn more Methadone details here. Unfortunately, once you've gone to a clinic for addiction treatment, that is the label you have in your medical records, so private doctors usually won't touch you to prescribe it for any other reason. Do you have insurance? ...

does medicine stay in the liver and dispense at a later time.
my friend takes medicine and has liver problems and tells me that her medicine will stay in her liver and dispense at later time.does the liver function like this? ## No, I believe she's misunderstanding how the liver issues may be affecting the medication, when she takes it. It isn't that the liver works as a time release system for any drugs. What often happens, when someone has some type of liver damage/disease is that it can affect the rate at which a medication is processed through the body, so some may be faster or slower than if the person had a healthy liver and, in some cases, they may absorb more or less of the drug than if they had a healthy liver. So from that, her statement does make sense, but she doesn't really have a complete understanding of how it works. Is... ...

Doxycycl Hycl Cap 100mg For Caninies
Is there any difference between this and Amoxicillin for my dog? ## Although both medications have similar indications with regards to the variety of infections they treat, they are still two different types of antibiotics with different chemical structures, side effects, dosages, potency, absorption rates, etc; which all play a significant role in how well your dog may react and respond to each medication. So to answer your question, I wouldn't consider them equal for canines or humans. Doxycycline is in a class of medications called tetracycline antibiotics. Amoxicillin is in a class of medications called penicillin-like antibiotics. You can learn more about these drugs on the page for Doxycycline Details and Amoxicillin Details I hope this info helps! ...

Is this drug used for HIV/AIDS? If so, what is the generic name? ## I'm sorry, but I can't find anything listed under this name. What country is it from? The closest thing I can find is Fortasec, which contains the active ingredient Loperamide, which is used to treat diarrhea. You can learn more about AIDS and treatments here: ## Fortase is used to treat hiv/aids i am searching for its generic brand name ## You are miss spelling the word.Fortoase = generic Saquinavir ## Actually, the correct trade name is Fortovase and more details on it can be found here: However, as of 2005, it is no longer available in this formulation to be used by itself.

gentilax during pregnancy
I take gentilax for constipation, but I just learned I am pregnant. I have had no bowel movement in two days though, usually I would just take a pill but are there any risks involved for the growing fetus? ## Angela, since you are pregnant, it isn't wise to take anything, before checking with your doctor. It is the best thing to do for your safety and the safety of your baby. It is probably okay for you to use fiber supplements, as you usually need a higher amount of it while pregnant, but only your doctor can say for sure. Do you have any OB Gyn already? ## Thank you so much for the response. Yes, I do have an OBGYN already. I have an appointment on the 15th (sono to make sure baby is in uterus) then seeing my doctor after sono. However, I am taking Meta-mucil as told by my nurse a... ...

H-86 Information
HSI (Health Scientists Institute) runs an article on H-86 and says that the info on this is found in their publication called "Miracles From The Vault". This might include info on where this product may be found, I'm not sure. This publication can be received free with a one year's subscription to HSI's newsletter. They promote natural and safe products and treatments for illness in place of dangerous drugs. I have been on their mailing list for several years and have found them to be not only sound and good but always ahead of the curve in new natural methods of treatment. Hope this helps. ...

Looking for pain Dr in Kansas City K S area
I am currently taking MsContin and l0rtab for headaches lumbar herniations degeneration, ,stenosis and sciatica and dysmennorhea I plan on moving in the next 11 months thanks for any help ## Hi, Chaos! How are you? When moving to a new area and requiring those types of medications for long-term chronic pain, you're best bet would be to establish a relationship in the new area with a PCP, then have them refer you to a pain management specialist. There are so many new regulations in place, that it's going to be hard to get the help you need, if you try to do it some other way, such as finding a doctor on your own. Learn more MS Contin details here. Learn more Lortab details here. Have you discussed it with your current doctor? They may have a colleague in that area that they can r... ...

macorate 400mg
Why is it prescribed? ## Macorate contains the active ingredient Magnesium Valproate, it is an anticonvulsant medications, used to prevent seizures. Are there any questions or comments? ## Is it safe to use macorate cr 400 instead of macorate 400? ## Parthan, which one has your doctor instructed you to use? The difference between them is that the one with the CR is a time released medication, so it doesn't release all of the medication, at once. When switching from one to the other, some people may require a dosage adjustment. ## yes its ## How to stop acne when taking macorate?

I recently went & had a EMG & EEG. My Dr. said I had some nerve damage in my legs? My legs jump & twitch on their own? My Dr. said this matanx is a vitamin? Any feedback would be appreciated. ## Metanx contains the active ingredients: L-methylfolate (Metafolin): 2.8 mg Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate: 25 mg Methylcobalamin: 2 mg These B-Vitamins are often given to try to help treat or prevent nerve damage, however, the only way they will help is if that damage was caused by a deficiency in these nutrients. If it was due to an injury, then they will probably not do much. Read more: Are there any comments or questions? ...

Mono Linyah
In February, my pharmacy told me that the birth control I was on (sprintec) was back ordered. They offered mono-linyah (a generic equivalent) for me to use. Turns out, I liked mono-linyah way more than I liked sprintec. Now, however, my pharmacy is back to carrying sprintec. Does anyone know of any pharmacies that have mono linyah as a generic? ## They should be able to order the other one back in for you, if you ask them. However, if it costs more than the Sprintec, then your insurance would most likely only cover the lower amount and you'd have to pay the difference out of pocket. Additionally, without knowing your location, it's hard for anyone to make any suggestions. This website is open to people all over the world, so if you're located in Philadelphia and I suggest a ... ...

mova 250 m25
round pink mova 250 m25 pill ## This is Naproxen Sodium 250mgs, a generic prescription strength Naprosyn. This is just a little stronger than what you would get if you bought a bottle of Aleve over the counter. ## What is mova 250 m25 prescribed for? ## Well it is basically a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, like I said in the above post, it is Naproxen Sodium, so it is prescribed to treat mild pain and inflammation. Like I said, nonsteroidal, so it doesn't react with as many meds, or have as many side effects as steroids do, and since it is non-narcotic, it is also safer when someone just has mild pain for some reason, and their problems don't warrant heavy pain meds. I am going to post the link to the monograph for Naproxen so you can read some more details! Naproxen Further In... ...

I'm not sure I fully understand the gist of what you're saying, but it sounds like your best bet would be to find some other alternative form of therapy that can safely be used alongside what you're already taking. That way, if they ever do confiscate your meds for whatever reason, you'd at least have a backup form of treatment to help alleviate some of the pain. Have you ever figured out why they keep taking your meds from you though? Surely there's a logical reason for their action, if... ...

Need to fill Oxycodone 15mg 8/28/12 Please kindly help
Wow, this has become insane. I don't feel the need to rant on all the reasons why i am prescribed what i am, but it's more than legit and not the pharmacies decision if i have a legitimate pain management doctor not under watch and a legit prescription, but again, I've been driving around in major pain and in tears and no one has been rude to me, actually sympathetic, but fact is, i still need my script filled and can't find them. I've had it for 5 days now, it isn't worth it to me to drive all of Jacksonville and into the rurals.. i've tried several other meds to avoid this, but some reason its the only med that responds so well to my fibromyalgia.

I found a small orangish-redish oval shaped gel pill with the imprint NV 13 on one side ## Hello, April! How are you? The NV logo is used on over the counter products, for instance I am familiar with one that is a Laxative that has the marking NV12 and is the same type of pill.

Pain doctor in Florida that will take me?
Ok. I am at my end and trying to find someone who knows a dr that will take a new patient. I have herniated discs in my neck that pinch a nerve and create horrible pain and burning in my hands. I have 2 small children and work in a career that requires me to use my hands and back 90% of the time. I've had to stop working because of this and I'm at my wits end with all of this. I'm currently seeing our family dr who has been prescribing me 10/325 percocets. She referred me to a pain dr and he wouldn't take me as a new patient. I am so frustrated. I know there has been a really big issue with narcotics and pill mills and all of that. I would just like to know if anyone knows a dr that is willing to write narcotic prescriptions. I have been to physical therapy and I don... ...
