I would like to know

where can I find methadone in columbus OH
Where can I find a doctor in Columbus Oh that will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain? My doctor gives me percocet but it just doesn't help. ## What other medications have you tried? And what is the dosage of the Percocet? The reason I'm asking it because Methadone should really be the last resort medication, for several reasons. The first is because there are other stronger and safer options available, such as Morphine or higher doses of Oxycodone. Learn more Morphine details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Another is due to the fact that Methadone is so very highly habit forming, so most people never get off of it, even if they're just using it for pain.

apo cephalex
I have just finished a 10 day dose of apo cephalex for an infection on my foot, which has still not fully healed, and I have suddenly developed hives all over my body, as of today. Could the hives be related to the medication, even though they occurred only after that many days of taking it? ## Yes, it could very well be what's caused your hives. Antibiotics do remain in your system for several days after you take them and there are many people that make it about 9 days in and suddenly develop an allergic reaction. When I discovered one that I was allergic to, I made it 9 and half days in, I had one dose left to go. You should consult your doctor, of course, to make sure that is what has caused them, but there's a very good chance it is. Is there anything else I can help with? L... ...

My INR for over a year is between 2.5 and 3. My nurse insists that I only require it to be tested every 3 months. I have a mitral valve fitted and fibration and worry that this is not often enough. Comments? ## What medication(s) do you take? There are some newer ones that are not as unpredictable and don't cause the severe problems with your INR that the older ones did.

Legality Of Operating A Business While Wearing Fentanyl Patches
Is it legal to operate a business or make business decisions when under the influence of Fentanyl patches? ## Yes, there is nothing illegal about it. You can operate your business, legally, under the influence of anything, including illegal drugs or alcohol, but if you make bad decisions, you are the one that will have to face the consequences. If you are caught using illegally, you may face criminal prosecution for using illegal drugs, or if you scammed people or cheated them, but you will not actually be prosecuted for having operated a business, while using a medication. The only way it would be illegal is if someone was operating/running something, where being under the influence of such could put the lives of others in danger. This is why air traffic controllers cannot work, while ... ...

I accidentally took a 2nd dose of my 60mg vyvanse daily dosage. I had completely forgotten I had already taken it earlier. I am 135 lbs. and a stay at home mother. Will I be okay? Please advise. ## Hello, JMarie! How are you doing? Did anything happen? In cases such as this, you should always contact your doctor or poison control. While there are always people online, like myself, that are happy to help, if we can, we cannot administer life saving aid, if that is what's required. This is a stimulant, so an overdose does have the potential to be dangerous, it could cause a dangerously elevated heart rate and hypertension, so it's not something to be taken lightly. ...

Dark red gel capsule
I found a whole bag of dark red/maroon gel capsules In my sons room. I opened one and it had some kind of oil in it as well as a soft dark red substance. I know it's not pharmaceutical. I also figure if it where vitamins they would be in the bottle not in a plastic bag. I'm trying to figure out if this is a steroid or other illegal drugs. I have noticed a few messages on here about people describing pretty much same pill found in their kids rooms. It's not round at the ends like say Advil liquid gels. It's actually more bullet shaped on both ends. Any help at all would be most appreciated. ## It actually resembles a kidney bean. ## Hello, Nikki! How are you?
