pictures of pills with triangle imprint

a white thin oblong pill with a triangle like symbol ## There are triangle imprints used by several manufacturers, they are usually generic pills and there are far too many for me to be able to post pictures of them. What does the symbol look like? Is it similar to an hourglass? If so, that's the Ivax logo and they make many different generic products. Are there any other markings on the tablet?

Hydromorphone came up as oxycontin ua

My UA at the my pain management Doctor's office came up positive for Oxycontin, but I am prescribed Hydromorphone 4mg x 3 & Hydrocodone 10/325mg x 4 - why is that? ## Hello, Marie! How are you? Unless they use an actual certified one, which most don't due to the expense, then false alarms are actually very common. Most narcotics are distantly related and produce very similar metabolites in the body. They should be able to send your sample out for more precise lab work that would eliminate that issue. 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? ## Hi Marie, I hope that this is not cau...

Small white pill with M on one side and 4 on the other ## Based on the description provided, I can confirm your pill to be Hydromorphone HCL (4 mg).

Inactive Ingredients: - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Stearic Acid Ref: DailyMed ## Can u tell me what forms the M-4mg hydromorphone come in? ## Due to the number of possible side effects, safety of administration and high potential for dependence/abuse, It definitely is not recommended; but based on my research it can be done.

I Tried To Fill My Percription Of 180 8 Mg Hydromorphone At Walgreens And They Said Had Call Doctor Get A Code From Them Ito It

Walgreens won't fill my percription of 180 , 8 mg hydromorphone without contacting doctor to get a code to fill is this true my doctors office was closed so I have to try again tomorrow ## I am also on 8mg of Hydromorphone and have my Rx's filled regularly at Walgreens. The max perscribbed dose of this medication is 4x/day which comes to a monthly script total of 120 tablets. My thoughts are that a special code is needed/required by law for your script due to the fact that your doctor is perscribbing more than the maximum allowed dosage for this medication. ## The maximum prescribed doses per day can actually be 6 doses, since it can be taken every 4 hours, if needed that often. However, this really has to do with the new dispensing laws that are being enforced. Many pharmacies ...

weaning from 32 mgs of hydromorphone to 400 mg Lucynta

As a way to end a long battle with neuropathic pain from chemotherapy that started with hydrocodone and ended with 100 mcg Duragesic Patch/48 hours, I wanted to get off the patches and so first brought down, slowly, to 50 mcg Duragesic/48 hours and then I wanted to move to a different drug - we switched to hydromorphone, beginning at 8 mg 6 x day for 4 days, then 4 mg a 11 x day for 7 days, then eventually to 4 mg 8 x a day = 32 mgs a day. I am not metabolizing this well and in a lot of pain and discomfort, and so we are switching to a drug I am unfamiliar with, called Lucynta. I am to take 100 mg 4 x a day, and in two weeks go down 1/2 pill every 2 weeks until I'm done. Has anyone used Lucynta for weaning? I understand that I am fortunate to be weaning from hydromorphone rather tha...

Now on Hydromorphone, but not working like Oxycodone, help!

I have been on Oxycodone 30 mg IR for more than ten years and it has worked fine. Now my doctor has changed to Hydromorphone 8 mg that doesn't work. Can my doctor make me change my pain meds? ## Is that morphine? Morphine didn’t work for me. They switched me from 5 mg oxycodone 4x a day to 15 mg er morphine and it was awful. Yes they can make you switch, but if you can come up with some legitimate side effects they may switch you back. When someone tried to make me take oxycontin instead of oxycodone I didn’t even feel safe to drive it was so strong. The doctor let me switch back. I don’t want meds that make me LESS functional. ## No, it is different than Morphine, though still related to it. Hydromorphone is stronger than Oxycodone, you only need 7mgs of it to equ...

Is Hydromorphone The Same As Morphine

iS HYDROMORPHONE the same as Morphine I was just concerned about my aunt. ## No they are not the same drug. Hydromorphone is a derivative of morphine. Hydromorphone is approx. 5x more potent mg for mg than morphine, and is typically given as an alternative to morphine. This information is reference from: Because Hydromorphone is a lot stronger, I personally wouldn't treat them as being similar drugs. I hope this helps! Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## My drug panel came back for hydromorphine but I only take morphine and embeda. So why did it come back as hydromorphone? Isn't that dilaudid? ## which is better at stopping pain of a broken rib hydrmorphone or morphine? ## My drug panel came back for hydromorphine but I only take morphine and ...
