need doctor to refill adderall
My psychiatrist is moving, I don't really want to go through the hassle of trying to find yet another psych. Can a normal doctor give me regular refills of the med's I'm already being prescribed. Concerta and Trazodone. It's not an urgent thing, I have a few weeks worth of medication left. Sorry, I'm new to all this adhd stuff. ## Hello, Marie! How are you? No, due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, you'll need to keep seeing a specialist in order to continue receiving such medications. Since medications such as Adderall and Concerta can be habit forming and some people abuse them, it was deemed that their use needed to be more strictly controlled. Learn more Adderall details here. Learn more Concerta details here. Did you try asking your cu... ...

Ambien, drinks, and cymbalta
I take cymbalta for anxiety, not depression. I was wondering if it is ok to take cymbalta in the morning, have 1-2 beers over 3 hrs in the evening and take a tiny dose of ambien. I've taken ambien after a beer plenty of times and its fine. I've been taking ambien for severe insomnia for a few years. Just wondering if ambien,cymbalta, and beer would have a bad effect. Thanks! ## If you're taking Ambien, it's really best not to drink, at all. I understand that you've already done it, without any problems, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Plenty of other people have also done so, only to suddenly get a huge surprise one day, when they woke up in jail or a hospital, because they suddenly experienced an adverse reaction.

Hands went numb/Hydrocodone / acetaminophen 5 326 tb
Used fallowing Gall Bladder surgery/Left hand small finger went numb after taking this and in 12 hours my whole hand and wrist numb /fallowing morning while left hand and wrist was numb then right hand started getting numb and realized it had to be this medicine . Stopped taking in morning and by evening my hands had almost returned to normal so it had to be this perscription. ## I have never heard of that reaction, but, some people get really dizzy on it so I guess one could become numb? Do you want to sell what your not using? ## When I say hand was numb what I mean is no feeling when I touched with other hand . Sorry but I wouldn't want to be responsible for passing meds. to others. ## That is not a normal side effect of either the Acetaminophen or the Hydrocodone in this medicat... ...

Hydrocodone 10500 Appearance
Large, oblong, line in center, blue, says Watson 340 on it ## I think the marking on this tablet was actually WATSON 540, especially with it being blue and yes, it contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. Learn more Vicodin details here. This is a narcotic pain reliever, so it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. And there are a couple of important pieces of information that I need to add in regards to these tablets… The first is that they are now changing the color of these, due to the fact that there were people who were allergic to or sensitive to the dye in them. Thus, they are now being replaced by tablets that have the same marking and same ingredients, but which are white. The s... ...

Ritalin Suppliers Backordered
Seems that most of the generic Ritalin manufacturers are back ordered. All the pharmacies I have called are out. Is there another medication I can request from my doctor. I take 20mg 3X daily ## Have you tried actually going to the pharmacies, with your prescription in hand to see if they have it in stock? Since Ritalin is a controlled substance, a phone call will usually not get you an accurate answer, because they have no way of knowing if the person on the other end of the line is a legitimate customer with a need, or a potential thief. Otherwise, the alternatives, such as Adderall, may also be difficult to find, as we've had similar complaints from people that need to fill their prescriptions for it, as well. ...

Lexamil 20 Mg Side Effects
I have been on Lexamil 20mg for about 2 months now (started at 5mg and increased slowly) and unless I take it with Aterax at night then I battle to fall asleep. I also find that I have vivid dreams that leave me exhausted in the morning. Lexamil has made me feel better except for this. Should these side effects stop if I take the Lexamil in the morning? ## Have you discussed it with your doctor? Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram and some doctors do direct it to be taken at night, since it can cause drowsiness as a side effect, but some people do much better taking it in the morning. When is the last time the dosage was increased? That may also have something to do with the side effects, as it can take several weeks for them to start to taper off and it's natural to... ...

pain pumps with fentynal
Has anyone had their pain pump changed from moriphine to fentynal? I had a medibalic pump implant done may of 2013, after being on oral meds for a decade. I really thought my life would have great improvements yet im very disappointed with the results. Once you have the implant its next to impossiable to find a new doctor to take over. My doctor will not give anything for break through and its not affective for me without. I have called medabalics they were no help, they by law have to report problems to the dea and to your dictor. I would like him to try switching me to fentynal but he would rather try to sell me nerve blocks or other procedures. My question is are mist people with pumps taking something for break through pain? ## I didnt mention that im in the Tampa bay area. I have t... ...

Thyronorm 50 mcg to lose weight
I was wondering if I could take Thyronorm 50 mcg to lose few kgs off. I do not have any thyroid problem. I have done if before but would like to make sure this time about the side effects. Please suggest. Diet is not an option at my place. ## I want to lose my weight ## No, it would not be advisable to use such a medication just for weight loss, unless your doctor has told you that it is safe for you to do so. Additionally, this medication can sometimes actually cause weight gain as a side effect in some people, so it could backfire on you. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Is Coumadin Better Than Warfarin
I just started on Warfarin a few weeks ago, due to a blood clot. First 2 weeks was okay, but now that it has built up in my system, I am having nausea, stomach pains, diarrhea. Everyone is telling me to switch to Coumadin. I am seeing my doctor on Monday. It feels like Gallbladder trouble, but she does not think so. So many people are telling me to get the Coumadin instead. Telling me about fillers in the Warfarin, and it seems like a lot of people could not tolerate the Warfarin. ## Warfarin IS the same as Coumadin. Coumadin is the brand name of warfarin. Please keep a food diary for the next week of EVERYTHING that you eat and bring it with you to the doctor. Were you instructed about food interactions when you were started on the medication? Also be sure to document all medications,I... ...

Nicorandil/ photosensitivity
Can Nicorandil cause a rash and severe itching of skin that has been exposed to sunlight. I have symptoms that appear very similar to sunburn accompanied by an intense, unbearable itching after a very brief exposure to sunlight. ## Hi, Ray! I did some searching and it appears that it can do that in some people that take it. I found a study that lists that it occurred in several of the test subjects and was related to the Nicorandil. Learn more Nicorandil details here. I am not sure what other medications may be available for you. Have you consulted your doctor? Do you use sunblock? ## Hi Verwon Thanks for your reply. Yes, I do use sunblock now but at the time I got the rash I wasn't using any. I know I should always protect myself from the sun but I have never had a problem before. ... ...

Your earliest reply will be very appreciated.

I have been on chantix for a month with a few side effects like weird dreams but nothing to make me put the cigarettes down I smoke a pack day and still do. I don't insurance at 220.00 month not sure if its worth it. ## Hi, Shay! It is possible that it just isn't effective for you. Not every medication works for everyone that tries it. However, you are supposed to pick a quit date, which is normally your 8th day of taking the Chantix and try to stick with it and let the medication help you by preventing the cravings for them. Learn more Chantix details here. This medication has helped many people quit smoking, but it is not a miracle drug that will do everything by itself, you do have to make some effort to quit, as well.

pancreatic cancer
I'd like to understand pancreatic cancer the cause & treatment ? My dearest & oldest friend just died of 56 yrs. Old help me to understand ? ## Hello, Tina! How are you? I am so very sorry for your loss. I don't think anyone can really understand it and/or explain it to you, nor is there any definitive cause to most types of cancer. There may be some things that possibly increase someones risk, but it really can't ever be said that if they had or had not done any particular thing, they would or would not have gotten cancer. Some risk factors include a family history of it, advanced age, smoking and periodontal disease, but there are people that get it without having any of the risk factors. There are also different treatment options, such as surgery, radiation ... ...

Can xarelto cause joint pain
I took 30 mg a day from3 weeks, then dropped it to 20 mg per day. About 6 days after dropping to 20 mg, I started to get pain in joints, primarily hands, feet, knees, elbows, etc. I am being treated for PE's. My rheumatologist tested me for all connective tissue orders which were all negative. I am suffering and only take Tylenol for pain, which is not too helpful. I am debating if I should switch blood thinners or if joint symptoms will reduce over time with the Xarelto. Thank you to all. ## Hello, Cenzo! How are you? Joint pain has been a frequently reported side effect of Xarelto and it doesn't seem to go away, which has caused quite a few people to have to stop taking it. Another commonly reported problem is weight gain of generally greater than 40 pounds. Is there anything ... ...
