How many hydrcodone 5/325 are equal to hydrocodone 7.5/750
I have had RA since I was nine. I've been on EVERY RA medication you can think of . I've had hips replaced and revised as well as knee replacements and spine surgery. It's been tough but I'm a fighter. There is such a stigma for pain meds and I do understand why, it's just some of us use these medications as a way to actually live a semi normal productive life, and NOT for a "high" Anyway because of such a stigma I'm trying to wean off some of my pain meds but it's hard. QUESTION:...I am usually given the 7.5/750 pills but a doctor on call for my rheumatologist this week gave me the 5/325. IS THERE A BIG DIFFERENCE? The 5/325 (he didn't feel right giving me what my real dr. generally prescribes me)pill is small, white, oval, has the number 126 on ... ...

Help find a Doctor in Chicago Suburbs Prescribes Vicodin and refills
My primary Dr only allows 1 pill 5mg - twice per day for a year. I need doulble that to control back pain. ## I need Pain killers for a lower back slipped disc and current doctor only offers one 5 mg pill twice daily that does nothing. I am in Western Sububrbs of Chicago (Naperville/Whaton) and looking for a NEW DOCTOR that will offer higher doses or alternate prescription medication ## Have either one of you considered seeing a pain management specialist? The issue here is that you've both been seeing primary care doctors, who aren't specially trained in the handling of such issues and thus, they may not feel comfortable doing so. ## I need to find a dr in Chicago who will prescribe pain meds.

bystolic 2.5mg,metformin 500mg,pravastatin sodium40mg,hydrocodon10/325,amitriptyline 25mg
I take all these meds for high suger,colesteral ,pain and nerve pain do you see any bad side effects from having to take all these meds> ## Hi Smith, Unfortunately, just about every prescription drug comes with at least a handful of undesirable side effects. However, there's really no telling ahead of time which side effect(s) or symptom(s) one might end up experiencing during the course of treatment, if you even have any symptoms at all. Not everyone who takes these types of drugs experiences side effects. So you could just as well be in the clear as far as I know. If you'd like to learn more about each of those drugs and their potential side effects, you can do so on the pages for: Bystolic Details Metformin Details Pravastatin Details Hydrocodone Details Amitriptyline Det... ...

what is the legal early number of days to pick up a regular ,3 year hydrocodone Rx I have had in NC , now 2013
my doctor has prescribed hydrocodone and that is all I take for pain management in N. C. at Walreen's; I never was declined due to insurance nor store's policy for these tablets, and now my PA and MD in pain management have suddenly turned it into a "history" of me picking up my Rx's early on a regular basis ,which is not even true according to my records; I do not understand why one day it was fine with my physician, as I we had always agreed that I wanted lowest doseage of pain meds tolerable for my chronic pain due to herniations and bulging discs, and these are the 10/325's, I tried Tramadol as a break-through Rx, and dropped it, no break through meds. such as that had any help for me, and higher medications with opiates actually suggested by the PA were decl... ...

I started the fentanyl patch 100 today after 3 years of OxyContin, the last dose of Oxy was 80OP 4 times per 24 hours. How does the patch fair?
Hello, friends! I started the Fentanyl patch 100mc today after OxyContin treatment my highest dose was 80OP up to 4 per 24 hours. I suffer from agonizing chronic pain due to severe nerve damage in my feet (medical neglect and misdiagnosed 3 years ago). I've build up opioid tolerance pretty quickly, so my doctor suggested the Fentanyl patches, plus, I felt "victimized by the system" - all and everyone plays the "Cops", lecturing me about the risks of opioids, treating me like a "junkie". Nothing against those that use these meds recreationally, but because of those very people, I will convulse in ER, and the attending doctor will insist on reaching my neurologist first before administering the pain relief... Finally, my doctor suggested these patches - I am MO... ...

what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh... ...

Abusers give people like me a bad name. I suffer from chronic back pain chrons disease and other problems. I have to use pain management to be able to live a somewhat normal life. And people who take these drugs to get high are ruining for people who really need the medication to function. No wonder the DEA is pounding on us. It's now getting really hard for us to get our meds and we go by the book use one dr and take our meds and do not give or sell them but bc people like y'all do we are being punished for it. So thanks a f***ing lot. This angers me beyond belief ...

I wanted to know if I can take double of any of these meds because I take them but my hips and legs still hurt excruciating I caught a really bad asthma attack in 2010 from pollen I stood in the hospital and they gave me steroids which gave me AVN so I need hip replacements now at a young age its pain as if u wouldn't believe but my meds don't really work for me I just feel high with really bad pain to where I sometimes want to cut my legs off I feel as if this disease has truly ruined my life ## Hello, China! How are you doing? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. However no, doubling up on the medications on your own is not a good idea, you could put yourself at risk of overdose.

tribedoce shots
I pulled my calf, so after a week decided to get the injection. I was taking same formula but in pills presentation, which in the past has worked great for back pain. But, the calf injury had a higher strain level, i hate injections but support from my posse i gutted up and took it, i got to say it did not hurt, my doc has great technique. Box contais 3 so will go again tomorrow and day after. Price, like everything in life, several brands, several labs, several prices. From experience i can say lab and store reputation do make difference in meds, so make ur choice. (Uni-dox is one i've used in pill version). Principal compound diclofenaco sodico is an antiinflamatory, the rest are B complex vitamins. Personally i say its safe. Like most meds, not recomended if you are pregnant, have m ...

WHICH WOULD WORK THE BEST SEVERE CONTINOUS BACK/NECK PAIN. I HAVE SUFFERED PAIN FOR MANY YRS FROM THE RESULTS OF A BROKEN NECK, DUE TO AN AUTO ACCIDENT. I DONT LIKE THE IDEA OF BEING "HIGH" OR ANYTHING, BUT NEED MEDS TO HELP TAKE THE SO CALLED EDGE OFF MY PAIN. ## For continuous intense pain, the time released formulations are usually used, because they can provide much longer pain relief. Though for pain management, many people end up using both, an immediate release to get faster relief, while waiting for the time released ones to kick in. The time released Oxycodone, which is available under the name brand Oxycontin, slowly releases the narcotic medication over a 12 hour time period. Since it's not all released at once, this also helps avoid the euphoric, high feeling for... ...

Watson is now actavis norco
My pharmacist that I have known for years due to chronic pain from cancer/severe spinal injuries and a totaled knee, told me last week that it is the DEA that has created the change in ALL pain meds. I have been on Watson Norco for 10 years and now I am in severe withdrawal with actavis buying out Watson. It is unbearable and my pharmacist said that people will DIE because of not being forewarned or informed ahead of time. This is all due to the people that use the drugs for getting high. Sniffing, smoking and whatever else they do has ruined it for us real patients. We all know the DEA is like God and they don't even care about us real patients that have medical records, etc. I have been suffering for over a month now and my pain doc is on extended vacation. Thank goodness for my p... ...

Savella side effects
I'm on week 2 of Savella, not up to full dose yet, (50 mg 2x pd) I have diarreah every day, and am nauseous, and just want to eat constantly! I started the higher dose yesterday, and puked for 20 minutes after having flu like symptoms. I thought I was getting the flu, but felt a little better after throwing up, but was still nauseous all day. I have to take diarreah meds about every other day to keep it under control. I think my pain is a little better, but I can't afford any more weight gain. I'm starting to wonder if this isn't the med for me. ## Wow! Very sorry to read of what you are going through. Yes, Savella can cause the nausea and vomiting as side effects. It is not, however, known to cause diarrhea or increased appetite, but medications can affect everyone diff... ...

I take a combo of 10mg percocet and 10 mg ER Opana, still need help
I take the perc 10 and opana 10ER..along with steroid injections every few months and I am not getting the relief I hoped for. My pain doc has been great so far and has adjusted my meds several times. I want to ask for stronger meds.. I work 10 hr days and I'm starting to struggle more and more. I want to ask for higher dosages, but I don't want him to get a bad impression of me. What is the best way to ask this?... Thanks ## Explain to your doctor that you do not get the control needed for the hours you work. Tell him what you stated here. Be totally honest and tell him to at least increase the long acting med, the opana, so you can make it thru the workday. Being honest helps, as does looking your doc in the eye when speaking to him. If he is compassionate he will try to accom... ...

drug seeking
Read some of these messages and you'll see they are more about getting some particular drug rather than seeking pain relief. If you go to a pain management doctor thinking you know exactly what drug and quantity you want then you sound like a drug seeker. When was the last time you had an MRI? Is it possible that arthritis is now complicating your condition? The answer for you will not always be more drugs and higher doses. The doctor is the Pro. Go in ready to explain where you are and then LISTEN. There are new meds and procedures and some of the options may be difficult. Maybe it's time to try physical therapy again. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life taking increasingly higher levels of drugs until your organs start shutting down? How about life on dialysis. Be t ...

has anyone had good results on soboxone ## I have. I was addicted to pain meds for years stemming from a knee injury in college. When I finally told my doctor about all the extra pills I would take, i.e. buying them on the street, he advised me to try suboxone. I did, and I started at a higher dose, and it's fairly easy to taper the dose down in the beginning, just make sure you do it with your doc's help and let him/her know how you are feeling, physically. It is a little harder when you start going down from 2 mgs a day to 1, then 1/2 then a 1/4, and so forth. I've had more sucess taking half my dose in the morning and half in the evening, that could easily be psychological though. Anyhow, it is possible for this treatment to work, just don't try to wean yourself off t... ...

Chewing used 25 mcg Fentanyl patch.
I've worn the gel Fentanyl patch for the 96 hours. I went beyond the 72 because I was still getting pain relief. Not sure if it's because it was still in my system or what but it was my last patch and I didn't want to chance removing it. Well this morning I removed it because I was getting ZERO pain relief and I am in severe pain. I can't get my new prescription until Monday and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I should probably cut the used patch in order to chew it and get some pain relief. I am NOT trying to feel high. I don't use my meds for that reason apparently, but I need atleast a little relief from this pain. I also don't want to die either. I only want to know how I can safely chew this used patch to get atleast moderate pain relief. Thanks. ...
