Petition - Stop the DEA from interfering with chronic pain patients.

I just signed the petition "Barack Obama: Stop the DEA from interfering with chronic pain patients and their medical professionals." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name. Our goal is to reach 100 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here: change.org/p/barack-obama-stop-the-dea-from-interfering-with-chronic-pain-patients-and-their-medical-professionals?recruiter=226947221 Thanks! ## Thanks for showing your support! The DEA interfering with a doctor's practice has been a long drawn out issue for quite some time. I don't know if there's an end in sight to this upheaval, but in this day and age it seems we all have to learn how to manage our problems differently (through other means) or continue down the path of ...

Esexor 75

esexor 75 its good ## Greetings, I was unable to find any drugs under the name Esexor. I was however able to find a drug named Effexor that comes in a 75mg dosage. Is this the medication that you were talking about? Just in case I provided some information below pertaining to Effexor 75mg. According to the National Institute of Health Effexor 75mg, also known as venlafaxine hydrochloride, is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder (SAD) and panic disorder (PD). This medication should be administered only once a day after a meal, it is instructed to be consistent in administering this medication at the same time every day. The NIH warns that this medication should be administered with fluid only and not t...

bl 20 white and green capsule

I have found a green and white capsule pill with 20 marked in black on the green part of the pill and BL marked on the white part in black also. I'm not sure if it's a anti-depressant or not. ## Did you find out what these were? From what i can gather online they may be Fluoxetine ## Fluoxetine 20 mg. I have the same meds and that's exactly what they look like. ## I'm taking 20mg Fluoxetine and they match your description spot on. Capsules, half pale green marked with a black 20 and half creamy-white marked with a black BL. ## Hello Efs1324, I hope you are having a wonderful day. As the others have previously mentioned I was able to find google images that would suggest that the pills you have are Fluoxetine (Prozac). Unfortunately I was not able to pull up the brand and...

best generic bupropion 75mg sandoz or apotex

Mhich one is better? My son use to take bupropion Hcl 75mg from Sandoz Pharm. but when we bought our house and moved we swapped Pharmacies. They carry bupropion Hcl 75mg from Apotex Corp. I've noticed that he isn't able to focus as much, he impulse reacts more, and he takes longer to go to sleep, along with other small differences. Can this be because the bupropion from Apotex Corp. doesn't work as well for him as from Sandoz Pharm. I'm almost sure if it to be honest. Should I transfer and fill it elsewhere? ## Most defintely transfer script. Ive been taking Sandoz bupropion and love it. Had it filled the other day, they gave me Mylan brand and it did nothing for me except make my bp go up. Imo Sandoz is holy grail for wellbutrin generic. Hope he gets to feeling better!!...

Well my Dr came in this morning and told me he's not going to give me anymore narcotic pain meds! He claims I'm testing positive for meth! My question is, cymbalta's the ONLY new drug I'm taking.

pain clinic tn that needs NO referral

Chronic pain in knees, elbows, neck (also degeneration). Holding down a job with this pain is impossible. Interfers with sleep, walking, standing, just plain daily living. I have a disabled child (5 yrs. & 70 lbs.) and has to be lifted. Pain from doing this is unbearable. Depression is a real problem. No doctor will treat me, have no insurance or money. Right at this time, I can't afford the meds or the doctor, but I need the help desperately. ## @horsefly, Sorry to hear about this intense pain you've been dealing with. Have you considered looking into any types of patient assistance programs or things of that nature? From what I understand, there are some drug manufacturers who offers these programs for patients who can't afford the full cost of their medication(s). It...

prestique

atrial fibrillation ## Pristiq, which contains the active ingredient Desvenlafaxine, is an antidepressant. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, sexual dysfunction and constipation. ## For 18 years I have been taking Prozac. Each time I have attempted to change, under the care of a physician, I've touched the bottom of depression again. During the last several years my dosage has been upped to 40 mg in the AM and 40 in the PM. I've suffered anxiety, expecially upon awakening in the morning. In the last 10 years I've been divorced from a man with passive-aggressive tendancies. I go to a well reputed psychologist,exercise and eat well. I regularly meditate and do daily journaling,etc. I'm now married to a good person. My psychologist, chiropract...

Fluoxetine sinus problems

I have been on fluoxetine for eight months. I am on 40 mg/day. I've always been prone to sinus infections, but my sinus problems have gotten worse and now I have this pain in my sinuses everyday. I realized that I started having worse sinus issues around the same time I started taking fluoxetine - its even documented in my doctor's notes that I have been complaining of sinus pains and infections since about 7 months ago. She says it's a rare side effect so fluoxetine is probably not the culprit, but the sinus pain has gotten so bad that I'm willing to stop taking the meds (the other side effects like the nightmares are driving me nuts too). Anyway, has anyone else had sinus problems related to fluoxetine or Prozac? ## Hello, Alaska! How are you? Actually, they aren't...

Pristiq Night Sweats

Hi all, I have been on Pristiq for 5+ years. Soon after I began, I started dealing with night sweats. Not just mild sweat - I'm talking my PJs and sheets are drenched. It is awful! The night sweats have come and go over the years but are currently very bad. I can't seem to get much information on the internet about this side effect being an issue for many people. Has anyone else experienced night sweats from taking Pristiq? ## Hi Erin, According to the manufacturer, sweating is actually one of the most common side effects people experience from taking Pristiq (Desvenlafaxine). However, nih.gov happens to list "sweating" as both a 'general' and 'serious' side effect here: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a608022.html Have you already made your doctor ...

apotex vs pliva trazodone

My pharmacy just switched manufacturers of my prescription trazodone 50mg. It used to be made by apotex now it is pliva and I am finding that the new pills are having little to no effect and I am starting to suffer discontinuation syndrome. I talked to my pharmacist and doctor and neither one could tell me what was causing this. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who could shed some light on the subject. ## Yes, I can. Under Federal Law, by way of the Hatch Watchman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from their name brand counterparts by as much as plus or minus 20% in the active ingredient. Many people are not aware of this, including doctors, but the FDA considers this to be a very minor difference that does not affect the therapeutic dosing of medications. So,...

Alembic Fluoxetine Make Me Sick

I've been taking a generic green & white capsule of 20 mg Prozac (fluoxetine) for a few years. My pharmacy gave me blue capsules mfg by alembic this time & I am feeling so sick for 4 days now. I thought I had a stomach bug, but I've never had a bug linger this long. I had diarrhea & vomiting on day 2 & 3, jittery sleep, then deep bouts of sleep, bad headache, night sweats & nightmares. ## Ditto! I almost puked this am, and have been sick all day. Had major side effects after my pharmacy switched me to blue caps. Was taking Sandoz white and green for years with no problem. I called my pharmacy and requested alternative as I can’t barf every day ## I recently got a refill and my pharmacy switched to Alembic generic (dark blue capsules). I took it only abo...

Celexa side effects - help

My doctor put me on celexa 20 mg 6 months ago and the side effects were just too much. I have an irregular heartbeat for many years that was never a problem until I began this medication. When I asked him about this he for some reason became very defensive and said celexa had nothing to do with it and to keep taking it. I ended up firing him and I now have another doctor who says celexa will cause problems with someone who does have an irregular heatbeat. He's weaned me off of it, but the side effects are still there. I'm experiencing terrible mood swings I'm having a difficult time controlling, I also for lack of a better word-space out. I had the same side effects while on this medication. Could anyone tell me when I will even out again? I've only been off of it for a ...

Dangers of mirtazapine

It seems to me that Mirtazapine is a potentially dangerous drug with little information known about it. My veterinarian prescribed this drug in small quantities for my cat as an appetite stimulant, so I began reading articles on the drug and its effects. Although it is supposed to be used as an antidepressant for humans, it has a wide reputation for causing suicidal tendencies in children and young adults. It causes weight gain (the side effect my vet was looking for in my cat's case). It also can cause feelings of depression, and wooziness. I spoke with a nurse who took it and she said the effects of sluggishness and dizziness lasted 2 to 3 days. It can also cause nausea and headaches. It seems to me that these side effects are anything but what a person who is already depressed sh...

Switching from pristiq to generic pristiq

I was switched from Pristiq to generic Pristiq which if I understand right, is really Effexor. Is there a possibility this could be causing my severe fatigue? Has this happened to anyone else out there? ## My Insurance switched me to the generic (not my choice) about 3-4 weeks ago. Depression has been creeping in and I'm pretty concerned. Yesterday/last night was bad. Today was OK but my energy is not what it should be and my thinking/mood is not where it should be. Hoping to switch back but I don't know what is happening with the insurance...there is a $1000 penalty to go back to name brand!! ## Insurance is disgusting!! I actually feel ok depression wise and the fatigue turned out to be something else. I hope you stay stable ## Thanks. I'm glad your medication isn't th...

Citalopram oily greasy skin

I was on Citalopram for over a year and I came off it in November 2016. I feel so much better not being on it and that I am not zombie like anymore and not to mention the weight gain. Now it is March and I have the worst oily skin ever. It's literally all over my face and it is making my hair so greasy and this isn't a good look. I have tried special soap bars and greasy hair shampoo but it just simple keeps coming back. It's been happening for a few months now and it's really getting on my nerves. Can anyone advise me on this and if anyone else has had a similar experience? I am guessing it is to do with hormones setting back down but how long will it go on for? I'm a 30 year old male. Thanks in advance. ## I came off citalopram in June '17 and since then I'...
