How long until I see results and side effect lengths.

I would not recomend on trying this because it will lead to certain death as heart failure ..... My sister tried this and she ended up dying from cardiac arrest so it would not be a good choice to crush it up and try to inject it............. ## Thank you for the post, Clint. I always try to warn people on here that ask about it, because trying to inject any medication that is not intended to be used that way is very dangerous. Tablets contain more than just the active ingredients, they also contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body. Normally, they are just expelled in our body waste. If someone tries to crush and dissolve a pill to inject it, they are putting these substances into their bodies in a way, in which, it cannot process them out. This ... ...

So is that right the birth control will stop it . And after I leave it do I can get pregnant easily am just gona take from today until 11/3/13 ## Hi Saja, From what I understand, it is possible for you to miss a period if you take birth control on the first day of your menstrual cycle. However, hormones can affect different people in different ways, whereas some women will menstruate regularly and some won't. I don't think there is any harm in skipping, but if you are concerned about it, you should probably consult your doctor. As far as getting pregnant goes, I believe you are susceptible to pregnancy ... ...

oxycondoyne and nuvigil
1 Reply RSS
My partner has increased her oxy intake substantially since taking nuvigil and can't explain whether it's needed for pain or depression. It will end in depression because her 120/mo 15 mg/oxy just won't last. The apparent simultaneous use of both meds seems to show a departure from reality. Similar experiences requested. MM ## Hello, Michael! How is she doing? Oxycodone is a narcotic analgesic, so it isn't going to properly treat depression. It does give some people a lift, but that is only temporary, because it is a side effect that eventually wears off, so the person must keep raising their dosage to get it back. She's getting in a bad cycle here that has the potential to be very dangerous. She shouldn't be taking more of this than her doctor has directed. Lear... ...

canada-methadone for pain help

changing from Methadone for pain to Suboxone for pain. Pain clinc is trying to pass the buck, I cant find a GP in or around the Trenton Ontario area to prescribe. I have been taken 150 mg pill form for 6 years works good. But moved pain clinc is in Oakville Ontario usually pain clinc wants your GP to take over prescribing but most GPs are nervous because they have to get a section 56 Methadone exemption. Canadian government needs to make it easier to get, would help out a lot of people. Try going to a Addiction centre just to get Medication closer to home. But those places are very very degrading they treat you like a criminal must pee in cup in front of them very week sometimes more. Also dirty place ect.
