Micro Pill FOR GAY

I am gay and i want to use micro pills to lessen my muscles so that i will have a beautiful body just like a woman. Is it advisable to use it? thanks. ## Micropil is a hormonal contraceptive (birth control pill) which contains Ethinyl Estradiol + Norethisterone. It is made up of ethinylestradiol, an estrogen and norethisterone a progestin. It is used for birth control, symptoms of menstruation, endometriosis, and menopausal symptoms. You should definitely consult with your doctor before starting this or any other treatment which could affect your natural hormone balance. There are many domestic drugs in the United States which contain this combination of active ingredients too. ## ilang months po ba para malaman ko kung effective nga ang micropills..? 1st time ko kc gumamit n2 kya hindi...

Psychological addiction to alcohol

After a serious alcohol induced illness I have never touched it again, 3 years completely dry. I have no physical craving but still seek in my life the 'feel good' that came from booze. I seek that buzz in other unharmful things or activities but it never seems to reach that 10 out 10 feeling that booze gave me. Consequently I believe I'm still addicted to the effect of alcohol. Do others have this problem, or understand mine? Does anyone know others in the same position who have used naltrexone for this situation? My life is trouble and generally stress free and I'm very fortunate so it's not life doing this. I'd really like to find a doctor or psychologist that has worked with this situation using naltrexone to treat it. Would really appreciate any information ...

alcohol addiction

My husband is an alcoholic and trying hard to to stop drinking ,however this is very dangerous n we are wanting know how to slowly taper off and for how long without causing himself death or seizures ..any answers would be very appreciated our marriage depends on this for he is very angry on alcohol ## I am sorry about what you're dealing with. All addictions are tough. The best thing for him to do, for his own safety, would be to get medical help and possibly the support of something like AA. How much does he drink and how often? Does he spend any time sober? ## For withdrawal there is physical consequences such as seizures.He should stop cold turkey under guidance from your doctor who could prescribe drugs such as valium. Alcohol damages brain cells which resultsinthe above plus p...

Naltrexone implant and still drinking

Hi. I have had the naltrexone implant for approx 2 months now. When I got it I cried with relief when driving home because I thought it would be my saviour after everything I heard and read. I have been a black out drinker for over 10 years now. Have done detoxes, one rehab, two years of AA and nothing helped. Continued to have the never ending torture of thinking about the damn drink. But I'm devastated that I'm still drinking most nights on this thing. I know it's psychological, it's definitely not physical cravings. I am forcing large quantities of discusting tasteting cheap vodka down my through because I just can't handle being sober. Always so scared to be sober. I don't enjoy drink anymore and go straight to black out drunk yet I can't stop. Getting ve...

Vivitrol and Headaches

Hi! I've tried to do some research on my own regarding this; however, most of the search results sing praise & glory about how great & awesome Vivitrol is. Not that I necessarily disagree but this headache is so debilitating that I'm not sure Vivitrol is the answer for me; that is, if it is the cause. I do see headaches noted as a common side effect but it is not a side effect that indicates to contact a health care professional or obtain immediate care or emergency care. Here goes… I received my 1st Vivitrol shot on April 24th and have had a continuous headache ever since. The headache started about an hour after I received the shot. It has gradually worsened to the point that it is taking over my life and just about anything can intensify it; sweeping the floor, ...

Livolin forte

What is cirrhosis of the liver with a HAI-Knodell of 6, as evidenced by a liver biopsy? After my blood test, it was found that I had a high reading on AST, ALT and GGT. Is it ok if I take livolin forte at this moment? Please advise. Thank you. ## Cirrhosis occurs, when normal, healthy liver tissue is replaced with other tissue, such as scar tissue. It can be caused by various liver diseases, alcoholism, some medications and other medical conditions. As to taking anything, even a nutritional supplement, some things are processed by the liver and could cause further damage. Therefore, I can only suggest that you discuss using it, with your doctor, before taking anything. You can learn more about Cirrhosis here: Have you consulted your doctor? ## May i please know how effective livolin for...

Nasty taste in mouth from Vivitrol?

I'm taking Vivitrol for opiate suspension. It's working wonders for me...but I have a horrible taste in my mouth....and everything I try to eat or drink doesn't taste as it should. Even brushing my teeth is challenging, because of the taste. Does anyone else have this problem? What did you do? ## Hello, Teri! How are you doing? Sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, a change in taste is a reported side effect of Vivitrol, along with congestion, fear and lack of appetite. I've had a couple medications that have caused such an issue and the only thing I really found that helped me was to suck on strong candy, or sip cola throughout the day. Have you asked your doctor if they have any solutions? ## Thank you for replying! :) Yes, I've been sipping soda, an...

What is the oblong white pill marked E 28?

Help! What is the oblong white pill marked E 28? The E looks like a sideways M ## Hi, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but I haven't been able to find anything that matches this, yet. What is your general location? If it's an over the counter item, some of them are regional, so that may help to narrow it down. I'll post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## I found this same pill in my daughters bathroom after a sleepover. Written on it is ? 28 and it's a white oblong pill. Does anyone know what it is? ## Treatment of etoh abuse ## It’s Antabuse.

Naltrexone and kratom

I've been taking approximately 6g of kratom every 4 to 6 hours for about 2 years now. I want to use a weight loss medication which contains naltrexone but wonder if it will cause withdrawal sickness because of my kratom use? ## Hi, I am in the same boat as you. Have not been using Kratom that long (about 6 months) but want to start Contrave for weight loss. I am also hoping the naltrexone will help me not use the Kratom anymore as I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to quit for a few weeks now. I think it will help with that but my concern now is that I will go into extreme withdrawals when I take the first dose. Did you end up taking yours? ## Personally, I think it would be best to consult a doctor for the purpose of setting up a tapering schedule with kratom in order to lessen an...

Vivitrol and birth control

I just had my second shot of vivitrol last week. I want to get on birth control, specifically depo-provera. Does anyone know if there is any birth control that is unsafe to take while on vivitrol? I do not want to get pregnant while on vivitrol. ## I didn't find any interactions listed, but it is always best to double check with your doctor make sure they are aware that you will be taking both, unless both are prescribed by the same doctor, then of course the already know. LOL I would also like to note that I only checked with Depo Provera, since they are far too many contraceptives on the market, both generic, and name brand, so I can't possibly research them all. However, if you post back with a couple others that you are considering, I will be happy to check them for you. Dep...

Naltrexone addiction

naltrexone was prescribed following detox from opiate addiction......I'm trying to get off the naltrexone but I start having "withdrawal".....muscle pain, nausea...when I stop taking the naltrexone.....I've been opiate free for months.....why is this happening? everything I've read says that naltrexone is not physically addictive, but I'm starting to wonder......has anyone had this problem with naltrexone? ## Your body can become dependent on anything that you take for a long period of time, because it gets used to having that substance. This means that a sudden cessation may result in some withdrawal effects, though they aren't usually as severe as the withdrawals from an actual addiction. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? ## Can I take Naltrexo...

lo dose naltrexone

Any one have experience using Lo Dose Naltrexone for arthritis, fibromyalga, or chronic pain ? ## I used LDN for Crohn's Disease and it was very effective in reducing abdominal pain. I used Neurontin, a synthetic analog of GABA, for nerve pain and it helped. You can buy GABA from a health food store. I hope this helps. ## Does LDN help with rheumatoid arthritis victims? ## GABA and Neurontin are not the same as far as effects. Neurontin (Gabapentin) is a Schedule IV or V prescription drug. IMO, OTC GABA is crap. ## Yes. It helps my pain, on a pain scale 1-10 the 5 mg daily decreased my pain level from an 8 to a 2.??
