I am from ND and in dire need of finding a doctor who can prescribe me methadone. I have been battling drug abuse for 10+ years and have gone through many treatment facilities. I have done my research and want to move on with my life by getting on a methadone program. PLEASE HELP! ## The problem with Methadone is that many people never truly get drug free, even after using the treatment programs. They often end up requirng a lifetime maintenance dose of it. You may be better of with Suboxone, which is fairly new, but has helped many people taper off of and completely beat their drug addiction. It contains the opiate Buprenoprhine. You can read about it here: To see if there is a doctor in your area that provides treatment with it, you can check out the website: Click Here I... ...

Using Suboxone To Get Off And Stay Off Opiates
I was prescribed opiate painkillers for 5 years. I gradually became totally addicted to the point that while these drugs ( Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and others) worked well for their intended purpose, the 'good feeling" they gave me became the focal point of my life. The unavoidable physical and psychological dependence eventually led to serious and harmful consequences- damaged or ruined relationships (divorce in my case) with people who were now less important than the drugs. Responsibilities and interests I had fell by the wayside. Although I have a legitimate need for pain relief due to nerve damage caused by disease, the doctor saw that I was abusing the drugs- taking too much and using them to get high- and cut me off. The withdrawal symptoms were horrific. I went ... ...

xanax 1 mg color
blue round dividing line on back an R on one side and 031 ## I ordered 1mg. xanax - saying to make sure it's the blue tablet. They SAY they are a Parke-Davis company. They just arrived - nothing like they promised - oblong yellow pills, scored to split. It's from Asimax-Forte. I can't even find a site in English on them except their own site which says essentially NOTHING! I wrote them and demanded a refund and will contact my bank as I am on high alert - having had people getting into my account and my ID stollen 3 times!!!! I was in the hospital at the time. Again these are marked 1mg. alprazolam. EXP. date is Jan. 2012 (scarey huh?). Can you please check in on this? They e-mailed me (which looked encouragingly official) and assured me I would be getting what I ordered and... ...

Chymoral Plus
hi iawnat to use chymoral plus i want to know how may tablets to take in oneday after food or beforefodd how to take please reply ## What has your doctor advised? Chymoral Plus contains Diclofenac, Trypsin and Chymotrypsin, it is used as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Many people do better taking it after eating, because the Diclofenac can cause stomach irritation and the production of excess stomach acid. As to the dosage and the frequency it is taken in a day, that depends on the condition being treated, which is why you should consult your doctor, it can vary from one daily up to 3 or 4 times a day. ...

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? Normally, they want to take these types of medications in the morning, so it is in your system and working during the peak times of day that you are most active and your BP or heart issues may experience the most fluctuations. 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.

That said, it should not make you urinate more frequently, but medications do affect people differently. Have you talked to your doctor about this? ...
