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...

Meperidine Prometh cap Ethex

pain for oral surgery. would like to know what is in them because they make me disoriented. ## meperidine is Demerol, a narcotic painkiller. Promethazine is an anti-psychotic, more often prescribed as a tranquilizer ## Promethazine IS NOT an antipsychotic! Promethazine is an antihistamine/anitemetic used to treat allergic reactions and prevent nausea. That is why, in the case of this pill, it is coupled with the narcotic, to help prevent nausea as a side effect! ## VERWON - if you do the research you'll see that it was ORIGINALLY prescribed as an anti-psycotic ## And it is no longer approved for that use! I put the link in my post, you can read it yourself. ## Yes, NO LONGER, but originally was & still has potential similar side-effects such as NMS & TD. And not to say that ...

I am on 15mg of methadone and just got a prescription for Lyrica 75mg. Is it ok to take these meds together? ## im on 70mg of methadone and 50mg of lyrica,,and no problems so far ## Can i take my seroquel 6 hrs after taking 10 mg methadone ## Does it truly relieve the pain? ## Is methadone the same as lyrica? ## No it's not chemical make up is totally different.

hair follicle drug test and oxycodone

I am prescribed oxycodone 10mg taken 4 times daily. I take them as directed. I recently took a 5 panel hair follicle test and it came back negative on everything. Does anyone know a reason that this would not show up on a hair test? I did not have my hair colored or bleached in over two years and I did not take anything to try to alter the results. Thanks! ## The reason oxy didn't show up in a Hair 5 Drug Panel test is that it is not tested for in that panel. In order for it to show up on a hair test you would need to take a test with the Extended Opiates which are the pain killers like oxy. ## So percocet wouldn't show up as an opiate? The people that administered the test said it should of shown up and they didn't know why it didn't. ## In a normal Hair 5 Drug Panel te...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Oxycodone In Chicago Illinois

I live in Chicago, Illinois and I have been on Oxycodone 30mg for 3 years. My doctor retired and I haven't been able to find a doctor since to prescribe them. Can you help me and give me a doctors name that will prescribe this medication in the Chicagoland area... ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors that will prescribe any given medication. And you may be creating part of the problem yourself, if you're calling new doctors and asking them to prescribe a specific medication. Most doctors will see that as being drug seeking behavior and won't even let you get in the door. The best thing you can do is to set up an appointment with a new doctor and then just make sure they get a full copy of your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Learn more Oxyc...

Doriden/glutethimide availability

Does anyone know where one could obtain glutethimide or it's brand name Doriden (CIBA Company)? Am in Canada where Doriden was discontinued in late 1980s and I was told Doriden discontinue was international. Perhaps there is now a generic form containing glutethimide available now as I would assume CIBA trademark rights would have by now expired. As the benzodiazapine replacement meds for Doriden are more addictive and dangerous (especially if mixing with alcohol & other drugs) it sure would be great to be able to go back to Doriden or glutethimide which were more effective and safer. A shame that the public was switched over to benzodiazipines (i.e. lorazapam, diazapam) when a better/safer product was available all in the name of profits and economics. Any help out there is mos...

Will the be able to see that i have been doubling up last few days or just see that its in my system not mattering how much or little is in my system ## Lisa, there is a good chance that you failed the test, most narcotics, even in a low amount are detectable for as long as 5 days on a standard urine test.

Oxycodone doctors in south mississippi

Old college football players. Both Knees messed up plus terrible headaches. Need some type of pain meds. Local doctors give me a 30 day supply only. ## Hello, Larry! How are you? A 30 day supply is all that any doctor can give you at once due to government regulations. They are required to have you in for a checkup each month and to write a new prescription if the medication is a controlled substance. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am also a retired football player. What is the first thing I need to do to get into a good doctor? ## I got fired from my doctor cause Klonopin was not in my drug panel and the doctor just two months ago wrote on my script to take as needed and was supposed to write me 2 months of my oxycodone but fired me.

is this pill go 37 norco 10 325

G037 10-325 ... is this norco? Is this a norco pill? ## Hello, Sabrina! How are you? Yes, it's manufactured by Tris Pharma and they list it as containing 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## This particular generic has caused me severe stomach cramps and I have never had this problem before (after 15 yrs and many different generics) this is the first for that generic. It started with this script, and it happens about 2 hrs after taking it, so that has to be it. ## Makes me sick to my stomach, my pharmacy recently switched to it from...

Lyrica side effects of long term use and teeth loss

I have been on lyrica from the very beginning of release 12-01-05. I have major side effects taking 900mg a day, now having teeth loss. Has anyone else been having this problem? Please help. ## Within the past year I have undergone 5 root canals and 1 failed root canal that resulted in extraction. I have also been diagnosed as severely deficient in Vitamin D (18 of 35). This all came about after being on Lyrica a little over 1 year. I am interested in hearing other teeth related stories as we have spent over $8K in the past year trying to save the teeth I have. After 18 years of timely adult check-ups I found these problems all at once! ## Lyrica can cause or aggravate dental issues, as will a lot of medications if you are on them long-term. One of the primary reasons is that it causes ...

Amount of oxycodone needed for positive hair follicle test.

I'm wondering....how many mg of Percocet will come up positive taken over a period of 3 months? (test goes back 90 days) If it's positive, what are possible levels that will come up? I've probably taken approx. 4-5, 5mg pills a week. ## My use was for over 4 months, not just one week btw :( ## I'm specifically looking for information on hair follicle testing. ## It will definitely show up... Please update on how your situation worked out so this post can help others who may be in your situation. :) ## How did your test end up? I'm in the same boat exactly. ## It will be positive after about two weeks after use. Takes that long to come out in hair follicle. Will stay positive unless you get something to detox it or wait three months. ## I can tell you to use Razor Was...
