Fumaderm - how long for results?
2 Replies RSS Share
Hi. I'm on fumaderm for psoriasis. Been taking it for almost 2 and a half months now (been on 6 full strength tablets a day for almost 3 weeks) and I haven't seen any improvement to my skin yet. The leaflet says results are usually seen around 8 weeks so I'm worrying it may not work for me. Anyone else been on this and had to wait a few months for results? Thanks. ## Hello, Herald! How are you doing? Has there been any change, yet? In most cases, when they give a certain number of weeks for results, they usually mean one steady dose for that period of time, because things can fluctuate, as long as your dosage is still changing. Have you been experience any side effects? The NIH lists the most common ones as possibly including abdominal pain, diarrhea, and flatulence. Are you...

Generic suboxone pills vs brand name strips
26 Replies RSS Share
I was started on Suboxone strips and paid out of pocket first week. Found out that ins will pay for Suboxone but I have to start with the pills and a pre-auth. So I pick up the generic pills, same dose as strips were and they aren't nearly as strong... Feeling a lot of cravings and w/d's and needed to take more to keep them at bay. The only way ins will pay for strips is if I have some sort of problem taking the pills.... What can I say to the Dr so he will switch my pre-auth to the strips? Called pharmacy and he said if you go from strips to pills you may need to increase your dose by 35% to get the results as you got from strips... Can anyone please help? ## Hi. The answer to ur question: what kind of insurance do u have? I know most ins including Medicaid will pay for strips ...

Prednisone affecting my 1-dose Methadone maintenance
13 Replies RSS Share
Hello. I'm an addict in recovery, using the methadone maintenance as the way to wean off opiates. I currently take 1 95mg dose (methadone) in the morning, and I'm weaning down 2mg/month. I also have spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and major lumbar pain. I take only Aleve for pain, as I'm told the methadone will not help me because I only take 1 single dose/day and not for pain management. I have had 2 surgeries on my back. A simple laminectomy, but my 2nd surgery was spinal fusion surgery. I have a metal cage in my lower back, but now; I need a 3rd surgery to repair the discs higher on my spine, as all the pain has returned and my very well-respected doctor highly suggests this. He ordered a series of steroidal epidural shots in my back. I did the 1st round of sho...

round peach pill with R 128 & oval white pill with U 136
2 Replies RSS Share
The oval white pill imprinted with U 136 as well as the round peach pill imprinted R 128 are both 0.2 mg clonidine! I am a recovering addict who's suffered from the disease of addiction. I was for years chasing my next high. My doctor gave me these to help with withdrawal and sleeping. They do not make you feel high as they're non narcotic! They do however put you to sleep. Originally they are indicated for high blood pressure and drug withdrawal. ## Clonidine can also be used for treating anxiety, ADHD and several other medications. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, sedation, drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. I have not taken it, but I've heard it works miracles for high blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello I...

can i stop taking multaq
5 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking Multaq for 10 months. I was hospitalized at that time for bronchitis. When asked what medications I was presently taking I stated all of them. I also mentioned that I have MVP and was taking 200 mg of Acebutolol 2 X daily. I also mentioned that 18 year's ago I went into A-Fib for 3 days. While hospitalized, they put me on Multaq. I since don't feel any PVC's but not sure if the Multaq eliminated them. Previously, I was taking Betapace as a preventative for A-Fib. Since taking the Multaq, I have been suffering with my stomach, extreme tiredness and get winded easily. Is taking the Multaq and Acebutolol over doing it ? I was told that the Acebutolol controls the lower part of the heart (PVC's) and the Multaq the upper part of the heart (A-Fib). I feel I ...

Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients
241 Replies RSS Share
Is narcotic pain medicine becoming a thing of the past? Why are doctors across America phasing out the practice of prescribing effective pain medication? Will big pharmaceutical companies ever truly understand what it's like to face the other side of the coin? Lately there's been a musty scent in the air surrounding the use of prescribed narcotic pain medication. Many doctors appear to be running scared as the DEA scours through fields of medical records, inspecting prescribing pads like a mouse scavenges for food in a dimly lit cellar. Should the day come when doctors recommend Ibuprofen to a feeble man who's been involved in a terrible car accident (breaking several bones / requiring extensive surgery), is this doctor at risk of malpractice when there are more effective op...

Zpack to Augmentin
2 Replies RSS Share
Hello, I was diagnosed with pneumonia yesterday and prescribed the Zpack. I took the first dose which is 2 pills together. I found out after this that because I am on Effexor that that antibiotic is not recommended for me to take because it can interact with eachother and can cause heart issues. They are starting me on Augmentin today. Is it safe to take today being that I just took the first dose of the Zpack yesterday? ## It is always best to follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. If they say it is safe for you to switch, then you should do so. The FDA lists the typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including dizziness, diarrhea, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. I am not saying there aren't any possible risks, but the NIH lists them as being very r...
