Hydrochlorothiazide/25mg effects?

What are the effects of this drug? Are there any side effects? ## half the 25 mg prescribed for HBP; need to know about side effects; cannot sleep; mouth sore..thanks ## Is this safe. for long term use. hydrochlorot 25mg. ## In regards to posts like this, it is very important that it always be stated that every medication carries the risk of causing side effects, even over the counter products. I know some doctors claim that they don't, but they are either uninformed or are trying to keep you from being afraid of taking a medication they feel you need. However, when something is prescribed for you, always just assume that it may cause side effects. You may be lucky and not experience any, but there's no way of knowing ahead of time. As to the Hydrochlorothiazide, it is a diureti...

can tramadol cause a false positive for oxycodone

Was tested and came back for oxycocone, all i take is ambien for sleep, tramadol for pain, amlopodine for blood pressure. Also I take Tylenol pm and Benadryl to help sleep ## I have had a false positive for oxycodone, because of tramadol and neurotin. So I guess it is possible. Especially if you are taking a medication like neurotin in addition to tramadol. ## Yes you can get a false positive for opioids with this drug.

medicaid louisiana doctors that are suboxone licensed

I had been on Suboxone for almost 8 years. In my opinion it is a wonder drug compared to all the opiates that the pain clinics are all too willing to prescribe .I have been out of my Suboxone for a week & a half. I feel like I am dying. I can not sleep. I have a 5 month old new baby boy. I can hardly pick him up due to the pain that I am in. I hurt all over. i have been so nauseated. My doctor who 's visits were cash bases only, however medicaid would take care of the actual prescription of 60, 8 mg. At one time I WAS PRESCRIBED 4, 8 MG SUBS A DAY. i WOULD KILL JUST TO HAVE A QUARTER RIGHT NOW TO FEEL LIKE NORMAL AGAIN. My doctor decided that he no longer wants to deal with any one with medicaid due to the fact that his office does not "LIKE TO HANDLE PRIOR AUTHORIZATIONS ...

Adderall on backorder

I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal...

diacort nifuroxazida

green and yellow capsule ## I went to the pharmacy in Costa Rica after one day of serious stomac pain. Problem is that the pharmacist didnt understand a single word english.. so I only pointed on my stomac and said Ouch.

Teva No Longer Manufacturers Clonazepam

Teva No Longer Manufacturers Clonazepam, and I personally feel it is a good thing. Teva, in my opinion, is a low-quality company who actually manufacturers 70% of their products overseas, in cities and communities I don't think you would want to live in. I find the change-over, in terms of most of my medications, including clonazapam 2mh hs to be more effective than before. There are, of course, individual differences, but this is how it is for me personally. Would anyone else care to comment? ## From what I can see on their site, they still list it as being currently manufacturer. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. Where did you hear that they discontinued it? What company ...

Tramadol false positive for cocaine

My urine test came back positive for cocaine but I never used it. I reported to my Dr that I have been taking Tramadol. Why did this show up as cocaine? ## I looked up this link and it says that tramadol can indeed create a false positive in a urine test and most commonly for PCP and opioids. I hope they're not giving you any flack for this! ## Did you buy it on the streets? The state police recently busted a woman for possessing powder that was a mix of tramadol, cocaine, and fentanyl. I assume the powder was for making fake pills. Don’t buy street pills

Blackjack pills

It's a black pill, says blackjack on it ## This is one of those OTC weight loss/energy supplement pills. ## Please dont take blackjacks!!!! i took one and it almost sent me to the er. i was in bad shape. my heart was thumping, i was out of it, and i was shaking terribly!! believe me, i was on a trip i didn't want to be on. ## Blackjacks are great if you have a caffeine tolerance, they're very strong. But if you're not used to caffeine I advise you stay away from them. However, if it takes more than one energy drink to make you happy then these are for you. BEWARE- very strong, loss if appetite ## I agree. I thought that I was going to have to go to the ER. It is the worst feeling ever!! ## i friend gave me one earlier today and i am having severe shaking, cold sweats, an...

Doctor in Pittsburgh PA that prescribes xanax or klonopin

Every doc I've met with here in Pittsburgh Pa will only take cash if they prescribe you xanax.. Very unethical but since I have insurance I would like to find a doctor to prescribe me the meds I need. I would take either although I like the Klonopin better, xanax cause my depression to worsen after I take them... Anyone know of any Psychiatrists that will take my insurance and prescribe me meds? ## The state medical insurance has very strict regulations regarding why a doctor may prescribe controlled substances, such as Xanax or Klonopin, which are Benzodiazepines. Thus, the doctor's have to go through a lot of paperwork and can get in a lot of trouble, if the state feels that something is out of line. Learn more Benzodiazepine details here. There is nothing that mandates that t...

coming off mirtazapine 15mg

I started on 15mg mirtazapine 7 weeks ago and titrated up after 4 weeks to 30mg for 1 week; then back down to 15mg for the last week. I want off this awful medication. I feel completely spaced out all the time but am aware withdrawal is horrendous. I have been really agitated the past 48 hrs so I want to limit withdrawal symptoms as much as possible. I was going through a bad divorce, serious debts and being staked for 9 months by my ex husband of 26 years. I have had extensive counselling and am mentally in a much better place so I want to come off this poison ASAP safely. Thank you for your reply. ## Hello, Beth! How are you? Overall, divorces always suck, even if we have to do them for own good, I dealt with one back in 2009 and my new husband had to deal with one back in 2015, so I ...

Diazepam 10mg pink and scored?

Since when are 10 mg Diazepam pink and scored with no number on them instead of blue with a 10 and scored as in America? ## Well, first of all, even in the U.S. the colors don't mean anything, the manufacturers can make them whatever color they choose, so even the same dosage from different companies may not be all the same color. As to the imprint, this can happen if you order them from a foreign pharmacy or obtain them there. Unlike the U.S., they don't require all of their medications to have unique imprints for identification purposes. That said, there is also no way to actually be certain they sent you the correct thing. Diazepam is a Benzodiazepine, commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and iritability...

Chemical reaction of zinc and iron results to upset stomach. Eat foods with iron such as milk after 2-3 hkurs you take cherifer. ## Due to the potency, the NIH warns that this medication may cause some nausea as a side effect, in some people that take it. It may also cause constipation and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## my tummy aches after i take cherifer pgm with zinc. is it okay...

Escitalopram vs Zoloft

Started taking Trintillex. Had bad side effects and stopped too fast which caused withdrawal. Now my Dr. has prescribed Escitalopram 5 mg. How long does this take to start working? Or is Zoloft 5mg better to start taking? Thanks so much. ## Zoloft is for middle aged women going through menopause It depresses young adults and seniors ## Iam waiting for a response regarding my questions about is Zoloft better or Lexapro which is escitalipram. ## Joni, which one may help you the most depends on the specific symptoms being treated, as well as any health conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking, so it is best to try the one that your doctor has recommended. For example, since Sertraline can cause weight gain, and Fluoxetine(Prozac) usually doesn't, my husband woul...
