Oxytocin Overview

Oxytocin (Oxt) is a peptide hormone and neuropeptide. Oxytocin is normally produced by the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus and released by the posterior pituitary.[3] It plays a role in social bonding, sexual reproduction, childbirth, and the period after childbirth.[4] Oxytocin is released into the bloodstream as a hormone in response to stretching of the cervix and uterus during labor and with stimulation of the nipples from breastfeeding.[...

a doctor who will prescribe pain medication harrisburg pennsylvania pa

I have serious shoulder pain since my 2 shoulder surgeries and I have a physically demanding job which makes it worse. Does anyone know who in the central PA area (HARRISBURG, MECHANICSBURG ETC) that will prescribe the 15 or 30mg oxytocin (Percocet)? I have such a high tolerance to the weaker Percocet and those doses ate the only ones that takes my pain away. I would appreciate any and all feedback! !!! Thanks ## Hello, Shawn! How are you? The maximum dose of Percocet that is currently available contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Anything that contains higher doses of Oxycodone would not be called Percocet, because it doesn't contain the Acetaminophen. If you're referring to Oxycontin, then that would be a time released formulation of straight Oxycodone, by...

Meds times TWO

Hi im prescribed 10mg oxytocin er and I was wondering if I took two at a time would it release the equivalent of 20mg?my doctor is currently switching me all around with different meds because I seem to be having unsavory side effects with several of the ones he trying. So im a guinea pig right now and my pain is crazy. Thanks ahead of time. ## Hello, Kimmy! How are you? Did you mean Oxycontin? If so, yes, but you shouldn't double up without your doctor's approval as it could result in overdose. 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.

80 mg oxytocin versus 100 morphine

How different is 1 80 mg oxytocin versus 1 100 mg morphine? ## Hello, Rose! How are you? Did you mean Oxycontin, as in the time released formulation of Oxycodone? If so, it is one and a half times stronger than Morphine. Thus, 80mgs of Oxycodone is actually equivalent to 120mgs of Morphine. 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.

white oval pill 13 blank on other

Fat oval pill that is white an has A13teen on one side an blank on the other is a. Oxytocin same as a roxicodine 30 mg very powerful pain pill ## @JamesDavis, I haven't located a match to your pill, but still wanted to answer the other question you have... Oxytocin is a naturally occurring hormone that's made in our brain. And judging from your description I think you may have mistaken this for "Oxycontin", which contains a time-released version of Oxycodone. Roxicodone by comparison, is simply another brand name for Oxycodone in it's immediate-release form. Regarding the white pill, whereabouts did you find it at? Seems strange to me that there's no specific details on it when I go to run a search.

doctor who will prescribe oxytocin nasal spray

Anyone know of one in Michigan. Seen it can greatly increase female libido. If anyone knows of a doctor that would be amazing! ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. If you're having libido issues, you should consult a gynecologist for help, they specialize in such problems. Depending on what's causing your problem, this might not be the appropriate drug to help. Are there any other questions or concerns?

oxytocin

old formula oc 80mg ## When will the old OC brand be available instead of the OP brand? ## I believe you mean Oxycontin, since Oxytocin is a completely different medication and not a narcotic. According to Purdue, it will not be available. The new product is the Oxycontin OP, it has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse and has replaced the original product. Stores were able to sell the original, until their existing stock ran out, then everyone got the new Oxycontin OP. If you have had problems with the new product, I suggest reporting it both to the FDA and Purdue at the following numbers: Purdue Pharma number for drug safety/medication issues: 888.726.7535 FDA MedWatch number: 800-332-1088 Are there any questions or comments?
