Doctors willing to prescribe pain medication

Can you tell me about any doctors who can prescribe Vicodin ## You'll get a much better response if you post back and state what area you are in. From your current post, people can only guess. Where are you located? Vicodin is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Chronic Pain patients must get organized to lobby for their rights.

People with chronic, intractable pain are being discriminated against and it is imperative that we join forces to fight for our civil rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Please send information on existing associations and organizations that can help or how to establish one that can help pain patients fight for their rights with petitions, letters; emails to send to these state and federal politicians that are determined use prescription drugs, doctors and pharmacies to further their political careers. Drug abuse is not the same as opiate dependent because of chronic pain management and there are over 100 million people living with pain and many of us are unable to live without medication. If the deaths from abuse seems high, the suicides from pain patients that are un...

Percocet pill with blue specks

Why have the blue specks in Percocet been added? When wet my tongue turned bright blue... ## I'm sorry, but I don't have any listings of a Percocet that matches this description. Can you please post back with more details? What are the markings on the tablet? The FDA warns that Percocet carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Are you sure it isn't Vicodin, or Lortab, which contains Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen? There is a tablet that contains those ingredients that has blue specks in it. Can you please double check and post back? Thank you! ## It is a white tablet scored and other side has the t192. Prescription bottle says oxycodone/acetaminophen 5-325mg tablet. Also says mpg ca...

percocet blue pill alv 196

Does it have less Tylenol than other brands and are they just as strong as other brands? ## Hello, Chazzy! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Alvogen and they list it as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen/Tylenol and 5mgs of Oxycodone. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. I still have several left from the time I had a kidney stone and they worked great for me. Is there anything else I can help with? ## This blue percocet seems to me like it has some type of stuff in it that causes it to gel. Anyone else get that? Also leaves a extra bad taste in my mouth. ## Hi I'm a RN. Pharmaceutical companies started making opi...

White oblong pill 10 n 358

This white oblong pill has the number 10 on one side; other side is scored with a lower case “n” (NOT “m”) to left of the score line and “358” to the right of the score line. Thank you. ## I was just given these from my pharmacy the other day. They say they are Norco 10/325 but as soon as I started taking them I got sick. Upset stomach, loss of appitite. I called the pharmacy to see if anything could be done and they told me to call my doctor. Plus they don't seem to work like the brand I was taking. ## Hi Teri, Sorry to hear about your experience with these tablets... I just wanted to verify that these are listed as being generic Hydrocodone Bitartrate + Acetaminophen (10/325 mg). The manufacturer is Novel Laboratories Inc. and the pill itself ca...

Watson hydrocodone pills - Which pharmacy carries them?

I live in northern ky and walgreens quit carrying watson brand and their new brand makes my whole body hurt. I want to find what pharmacies carry watson? ## I am also looking for the Watson 10/325. All the Walgreens & every other pharmacy around here are out. They said they use a different distributor. If they order them they still can't guarantee that they will get the Watson brand since it all comes from the same warehouse or company. I can't take the substitute brand that everyone is using, it make me so sick & my body just aches from them. I live in Phx,Az. If you know a place that carries Watson Brand please let me know. I can't believe that an entire city of this size can be completely out. ## Yes Watsons are good usually small family pharmacies still carry the...

morphine i.r. compared to norco 10/325

for the last 7 years I have been on Norco 10's got to the point I was taking 12 to 15 a day, it got to the point that they stopped working for me so my dr. put me on morphine er 15mg 3x a day with 30mg instant release 4x a day im new to morphine but have a very high tolerance to opiots, im just wondering if I made a good switch. I remember when the Norco made me feel great but I have yet to take two 30mg i.r. at once to see if that was a pleasant feeling, anyone have some helpful advice in this area? thanks ## Hello, Charles! How are you? The reason you aren't getting that same effect from the Morphine is because it's time released. The Norco was released all at once within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it, but the Morphine is slowly released into your body over a period of abo...

Fentora for noncancer related pain?

Hi all, Just wondering if anyone here takes Fentora for noncancer related pain? Last time I took it was 2013 when my doctor was able to write off label prescriptions for it but then my insurance stopped covering it. Also, with the many fentanyl related deaths lately, it's even harder to get the medication. Thing is, I have new prescription drug insurance and Fentora is in the formulary. I'm waiting to hear back from my Dr. about getting a prescription for it but thought I'd also post here to see if others have Fentora prescribed to them? I was taking Fentora to treat breakthrough neuropathic pain. FYI, I have an intrathecal pump which has baclofen and hydromorphone. The baclofen helps the spasms tremendously but the hydromorphone isn't doing much for the pain, I still ge...

Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen 10/325 by Mallinckrodt

My pharmacy changed my meds from the yellow 10-325 v 3601 norco to the 10-325 white m367 mallinckrodt. I've been taking the yellows for years with no problems. Today I started the whites and feeling dizzy, a little weak, kind of panicky. What is different about the two meds that would cause this? ## hi i take the 10-325 hydrocodone apap tablet malli and i was takeing the yellow 10-325 witch helped me i have a very bad back and spine problems the whit pills do noting but give me headackes and upset stomack i have been on vicodin for many years now that the drugs store gave me the white pills they do not work but make me sick what can i do? ## Hello, Jennifer and Don!

Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients

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...

white oblong pill with l1

Found a white oblong oval pill with L 1 or it looks like a 1 is this oxycodone? no other imprints on it ## Based on the description provided the closest match I'm finding is a round white pill marked "L 1"; which is identified as a 20mg Famotidine tablet, used for treating ulcers, as well as symptoms of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and heartburn. Now I realize you mentioned that your pill was oval/oblong-shaped, so I don't know if this is a definitive match or not. Also with the possibility of the "1" not being a "1" (as you mentioned it "looks like a 1"), there could potentially be other close matches too. Does anyone else recognize this pill as something different? ## This pill is no doubt, as in 95% sure, a benzodiazepine called loraz...

Is There A Representative For All Chronic Pain Patients

Is there a rep. for the ppl. who were controlled on 3 OxyContin OC a day, who now suffer and have proved the new OPs DON'T WORK? NO MATTER WHAT PURDUE OR FDA SAY? We need a rep. for us chronic pain patients, who were controlled and NOW SUFFER & CAN'T DO MORE THAN LAY IN BED CRYING. ## Unfortnately, other than reporting your complaints to the FDA, there isn't much else you can do. I'm sorry you are having such a frustrating experience with it. Have you tried to talk to your doctor about using any alternative medications, such as Fentanyl, or the time released Morphine? ## I've been on fentanyl for 15 yrs until they changed patch, it didn't help that's why my dr.put me on OxyContin and that lasted 5 mo. Till they changed to OP, then they stopped working.So ...

Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg

i have new pesription and my dr. wants me to try opana 10mg. is this drug stonger and how much stonger than my last drug oxycodone 30mg.. ## The Oxymorphone in Opana is stronger than Oxycodone, but you aren't on an equivalent dose, it would take 15mgs of it to equal each 30mg dose of the Oxycodone. Learn more Opana details here. So, in reality, it's twice as strong, but you may not get as much pain relief, since you aren't on an equivalent dosage. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I have severe Venous insufficiency,anxiety disorder,cirrhossis,osteoarthitis ,severe fractered leg, sixth cranial nerve palsey ,legs are black and necrotic,spleen very enlarged , anvanced hep c,plates left arm old injury , insomonia ,ptsd,inopperable dueto such low platleat count 35,000...

Lyrica Side Effects results in loss of 13 teeth

I am the patient of a pain management physician because there is nothing else that can be done for my back other thantry to manage my pain. I have had 19 back surgeries, including rods, broken back and rods on right side. My last surgery was the insertion of two morphine pain pumps, which caused my body to reject the plastic or some component thereof. They also inserted two dual-lead dorsal column stimulators, and even though all four of these pumps worked successfully, my body also rejected come component in the stimulators as well. One of the largest problems, second only to the pain, was the fact that I had 5 deep wound that went all the way down to my rectus muscle in my stomach. I had a staph infection from the pump as well as the stimulator. It took 6 months of wound care from the...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado

I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

2172 Hydrocodone Acetaminophen-Actavis/Walgreens Complaint

I too had my RX medication refilled (again) at Walgreens, but this time (When I did not take my RX Tylenol with it, like I always do) I noticed, that I have been given a different Brand of medication (A Generic Brand/MFG by-ACTAVIS). My "Norco-Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 5-325/TB" did not work as prescribed or even when I took 3 pills at one time (because 1 nor 2 pills didn't work/relieve my pain). I believe I have been given FAKE NORCO/Hydrocodone pills (white/#2172 on them) from Walgreens Pharmacy. Today I contacted the DEA & FDA via email and requested that they investigate my complaint as soon as possible. ## Hi Lisa, Sorry to hear about your experience with these new 2172 hydrocodone/acetaminophen tabs. There are actually several discussion threads here on MedsChat co...

White a2 pill

I found a pill that has an imprint on one side A2 and aspirin on the other someone told me this is a pain pill like vicodin. Can you tell me what it is? ## Hello, Gio! How are you? No, it contains Aspirin, exactly as it says. This tablet is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 325mgs of it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a white bar-shaped pill with "A 2" on one side with the 3 scores. I was told it's Alprazolam 2 mg. It breaks into four parts but I'm just not sure. I'm in Australia. Please help.

Cortal with softdrinks

what is the side effect? ## Do you know which version of Cortal you are taking? Is it Cortal for Adults with Aspirin and Caffeine, or Cortal with Ibuprofen?
