side effects of oxycodone taken after using methamphetamine a
Is this harmful to mix together? The street drug meth and oxycodone? If so what do the two together do to a person. Also is it in the barbituate family? ## Hello, Em! How are you? No, neither is a barbiturate. Oxycodone is a narcotic analgesic and Methamphetamine is a stimulant, so it would basically be combining two opposites, which can be very dangerous in the human body. Sometimes, it can cause your body to have a bad reaction and go into a type of shock, because it can't handle being told to do both things, at once. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Learn more Methamphetamine details here. They can also both be habit forming. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

Methadone is usually tapered, to try to minimize the withdrawal effects. They can be very bad, which is why many people end up on a lifetime maintenance dose and never entirely get off the drug. Some things you may experience can include: nausea, dizziness, chills and diarrhea. The withdrawals can usually last about a month, they should slowly improve as the drug is processed out of your system and your body gets used to not having it. How are you doing, now? ## Well...why on earth would you do such a thing? Methadone with... ...

Need Help with Lingering Side Effects of Prednisone
I am a 30 year old female and in the beginning of March 2013 I got terribly sick with some sort of cold paired with a severe sinus infection. I was prescribed Methylprednisolone 4mg dose pack. I completed that with only minor side effects however it didn't really work and I was back at the doctor a mere week later feeling just as bad. I was then prescribed Prednisone 20mg tablets, taking 3 daily for 5 days. It helped my symptoms and I felt better. However, my last dose was Sunday 3/17/2013 and today is Wednesday 3/20/2013 and I am feeling incredibly strange. I feel weak, tired, irritable, depressed, dizzy and light-headed at times, off balance and I am getting mild headaches. I'm also moody and have a short temper. From looking online it looks like these are some of the devastat... ...

detoxing off methadone and the withdrawl
I am trying to do a rapid detox but I am decreasing 5mg every 3 days, I am at 20mg now, I was at 40, when I started 8 years ago I was at 180mg! I am starting to really feel the effects and I wanted to know if anyone had any advice on anything that could help me get through this because this is my second attempt, I failed the first time, I never got past 25mg, well I hit 20mg for 1 day. PLEASE let me know of anything that may help....thank you very much.... ## Hello, Margie! How are you doing? Methadone is high addictive and very, very hard to detox from. A rapid detox is likely a bad idea and most likely why it didn't work the first time. Most people never get off of Methadone and require a maintenance dose for life, the few that are successful do so only with medical help and a ver... ...

We aren't medical professionals and only a doctor at said hospital could decide whether or not you require admission. If the symptoms are very bad or worsen, then yes, you should go to your nearest ER, as some withdrawal effects can be very dangerous, possibly deadly. Are you experiencing any other symptoms? ...

concerta washout time
what is the washout period when changing from concerta to dexedrine ## zero, I switched and one day i was on concerta the next I was dexedrine. No bad effects they are two different stimulants. I did, however, learn that methylphenidate (ritalin/concerta) are safer in overall neural functioning then amphetamines (dexedrine and adderal). If they are taken together, in smaller safe doses the methylphenidate can actually prevent some of the damage caused to the neurons by the amphetamine ...

How Long Does Lisinopril
I'm on the second day of being off of Lisinopril after being on it for two weeks with really bad side effects. Chills. Itching, stomach pains, headache. My question is how long has the side effects lasted for everyone? Thanks, RB ## HI, Roddy! Sorry about the side effects you suffered. If you were only on it for 2 weeks, it shouldn't take too long for them to wear off, maybe a week or so, but it can vary from person to person and you should double check with your doctor. Have you already consulted your doctor to switch to a different medication? It isn't safe to just abruptly stop a medication like this, if you were taking it for high blood pressure or a cardiac condition. ## Hello Thanks for your reply! I'm on day 5 of being off of it. I'm going to try nature method... ...
