do amlodipine cause hair loss or flabby muscles
hair has been thinning and some flappy muscles ## Just started to take amlodipine 5mg. I also am on thyroid medication will this medication amiodipine have any side effects with my thyroid medicine? ## It can cause hair loss in some people, though it isn't very common. It isn't known to cause the muscle issue, so if you're experiencing both, I suspect something else may be going on and you should talk to your doctor, so they can look into it. You can learn more Amlodipine details here. As to the question by Parthenia, there are several medications on the market to treat thyroid conditions, granted some are more common than others, but without knowing the specific one that's being taken, there is no way for anyone to check for possible interactions for her. Thus, if you r... ...

methadone doctors for pain
Hi I am trying to find a doctor in the Rochester, ny even buffalo area that will prescribe methadone for my chronic knee pain and all I am finding is addiction treatment facilities!!! Can u help? ## Well, if you're searching under Methadone/Methadone treatment, that's all you're going to find. There is no listing of doctors that treat pain with any given medication. For pain, Methadone can be prescribed by any physician that has their license and can prescribe medications, however, if they advertised it, imagine the type of people they'd have beating down their office door. :-) The biggest issue that I think you're going to run into is many doctors not wanting to prescribe it, though they may be perfectly willing to prescribe other opiates. Many are reluctant, since ... ...

Methadone verses Suboxone
Hello, everyone! I've heard stories about how some people stay on methadone 4 many years 2 life. Does anyone know if this is true? I've been on subs 4 almost 8 years. And, i was addicted 2 Oxy. (Heavy duty). I m just so scared if I got off that I would b back at a pain management addicted, again. Due 2 my severe pain from many medical problems. And, I DONT ever want 2 b in that situation, again! I'm sure a lot of u people understand that. Thanks 4 you're input. ## P.S. I lost my train of thought a bit, there. Meant 2 ask if anyone has heard of being on suboxone for years or life? ## My sub doctor said that I might have to stay on suboxone for life. I disagree with him. Suboxone is solely used for getting off of opiates, and other reasons. That way you won't go throug... ...

Verapamil Hcl Er 180 Mg
What time of day should I take it? With or without food? ## What has your doctor advised?

It can be taken with, or without food, so you can decide that for yourself, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions.

Can I Have A Glass Of Wine With Viibryd
just started VIIBRYD today.... only took 5mg.. can i have a glass of wine with dinner and is cheese aloud ## Hi Cassandra, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, since Viibryd does have an undesirable interaction with alcohol in general. Another Viibryd user actually posted a thread on here trying to warn people about the effects of mixing the two. You can read more on that here: /Discuss/Be-VERY-cautious-mixing-alcohol-with-Viibryd-229026.htm I also haven't come across any information stating that you cannot have cheese with Viibryd. But there is a food interaction you may want to be aware of. I went ahead and quoted the precautions below: "ADJUST DOSING INTERVAL: Food enhances the oral bioavailability of vilazodone.

I was on Azmacort for 20 years, and now am forced to take Symbicort or Advair which both contain LABA and have been causing some asthma related deaths. Neither one control my asthma like azmacort did. It is a sad story that they have out-lawed CFC inhalers because they harm the environment. Actually, it's quite a laughable situation when it come right down to it. A very survival of the fittest law, I do believe, because hundreds of thousands of people are suffering. The HFA inhalers are a joke and one has no real rescue inhalers. I'm sure it all comes down to the good old mighty dollar which is always at the expense of human life or human quality of life. 'The times they are a changin' as in the prophetic words of good old Bob Dylan. As we swim to keep our heads above wa... ...

Discount Card
My mother has been using the drug Pennsaid for knee pain. We recently had to change insurance companies and she went from paying $40.00 per month for this to now paying $136.00. This is totally unreasonable for her to have to pay this amount. I was curious to see if your company offered any type of drug discount card that would make this cheaper for her. This has helped her in her walking quite a bit but now has become a little too pricey for her. Thanks... ## Hi Donna, Sorry to hear about that crazy price increase. These pharmacies always find little ways to squeeze an extra paycheck out of people and it's a bit ridiculous to say the least. As far as saving money on her prescription, there are plenty of free Prescription Drug Discount Cards out there that you can find on google, wh... ...

The reasons haven't been given, but the complete supply from one manufacturer isn't currently available. Several people have asked very similar questions.

Vyvanse 30 Day free trial
My doctor gave me an expired free trial card with the prescription. I've been on Adderall and I don't like the way I feel on it. I haven't tried Vyvanse yet but I'd like to. I'm sure everyone here knows how expensive it is. I called the doctor's office and they said they'd try and get me a current card but they didn't.

why does cefdinir make my urine smell
Does cefdinir make your urine smell and does it cause you to need to go more often? ## The exact reason why medications do certain things to the body are unknown, however, they all do have side effects, because you are ingesting a foreign substance. Cefdinir is an antibiotic, a generic for Omnicef. The most common side effects include: nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and headache. That said, it should not make you urinate more frequently, but medications do affect people differently. Have you talked to your doctor about this? ...

morphine to methadone
I am currently on 54 ml. of Ordine 10, 150 mg Fentanyl patch, and 80 mg Targin equivalent to about 1,200 mg of morphine a day . my pain specialist wants me to change to methadone or suboxone what are your thoughts. Thanks in advance ## Hello, Allan! How are you? Most people have said that Suboxone didn't do much for their pain, so if you need pain relief, you might be better off with the Methadone. I've never taken either one myself, I am just stating what I've learned from other posters on this site. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Does anyone else have any advice to offer? ...

Hi. I just took the last brown pill in my second pack of Lo Loestrin Fe. I have not bled at all yet. On the first pack I had bad cramping on the last white pill and then spotted on the first brown.
