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...

Pain management termination due to Dr prescribed benzodiazepine

I have acute anxiety/panic attacks. My pain mgmnt Dr used to prescribe Ativan along with hydrocodone up till 2016 as their new policy prohibited it. Family Dr then prescribed my Ativan till the opioid crisis hit with the DEA, etc telling Dr's basically how to treat their patients. After several referrals to Psych Dr's within the same hospital as pain mgmnt, they said they could not prescribe it, that it had to be pain mgmnt. Each said other Dr had to. Anyway, found a decent Psych who after in depth appointments, past history, prescribed Ativan for me in June 2019. Went to my scheduled pain mgmnt appt July 3, 2019, and was dropped because I now take a legally obtained benzodiazepine and their policy is "One or the other, you choose". So I chose to be able to function in p...

Nervous system damage from epclusa

Has anyone experienced severe anxiety, constant crawling feeling in body after epclusa treatment. Its like my brain and body aren't working right anymore? I had terrible side effects. Finished in January, now it's June and feels like I'm still taking the poison. ## Hello, Barbara! How are you? Has there been any change? Those are not normal side effects of this medication according to recent FDA reports. They typical include nausea, dizziness, insomnia, depression, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications? Do you take any supplements? Do you drink a lot of sugary, or caffeinated beverages? ## Yes I started with hand/arm pain about a month after starting treatment. Now I am three months post treatment and the pain has now been nerve pain in my hands, lower legs, hands, ...

C G On One Side 20 Other And Is Yellow In Color Round

I found a pill in my daughters backpack. its round and yellow. One side says CG, and the other side has the number 20 ## Hello, The closest match I've been able to find is Ondansetron hydrochloride (8 mg). It is a round yellow pill with the imprint GG 928- Maybe the imprint got damaged so that it appears to be CG 20? Ondansetron is used mainly as an antiemetic to treat nausea and vomiting -sometimes following chemotherapy. Manufacturer: Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc. National Drug Code (NDC): 00781-1681 You can learn more about this drug on the page for Ondansetron Details If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I don't know if you are still wondering about this or not...

Mitochondrial disease

I was Dx with Mitochondrial Myopathy in 9/09 after much testing and labs and finally by muscle biopsy. I was recently told by my neurologist that there had been some research done revealing their effectiveness of this medication in helping to control the duration, intensity and frequency of muscular spasms and cramping, sometimes crippling in its active phases. I began this therapy and within just a few weeks I was having less intensive cramping, the duration was even for less amounts of time. It became more tolerable. It did not do much in controlling the weakness and fatigue I felt but any relief was greatly appreciated, The local pharmacies had to pool their supplies to fill my prescription, I guess my dosage was higher than the usual. It was in a word experimental. I was taking 75 m...

Vista Pharmacy

Has anyone been to Vista Pharmacy's website? Has anyone been mailed fake pills when you were tricked into sending money for? Please tell me what you did. They're lying to many people that trusted them enough to send money. Vistoril is a decongestant they're prescribing for anxiety. Like a Benadryl. ## Nearly all of these web-based pharmacies are fake. Be careful especially when they ask for Bitcoins or Western Union only.

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early

I only see one doctor and he gives me a 3 month supply of xanax. When I went the last time he wrote me out a prescription but I still had two refills. I had a friend and her husband passed away and I gave her some of mine thinking I would have no problem re-filling the prescription. I had sense enough not to go to the same pharmacy and not to give my insurance information. So I go to this small drug store by my house and I had to fill out paperwork such as dob, name and my DL #. Well they paged me to the front of the store and advised me that it was 7 days to early for them to re-fill. So my question is where can I go to re-fill a prescription that is valid written by the same doctor. I only tried one place, I'm guessing they must have a data base if you try and refill your prescrip...

clonazepam ingredients solco brand vs actavis

I have been taking TEVA clonazepam .5 for years and it was very effective! Now I hear that TEVA does not make it anymore. I was prescribed it via ACCORD mfg with very poor results... headaches, nervous, and more. I hear that the are also SOLCO and AVTIVIS mfg. I need some input re which one would be better... or any others. I heard that the inactive ingredients have a lot to do with it. I also know ACCORD is made in China and have heard some horror stories about their clonozepam. ANY INPUT GREATLY APPRECIATED!! ## Hi Johnny, You're spot on about the inactive ingredients having a lot to do with the medication efficacy. In Canada the drug labels actually refer to them as "non-medicinal ingredients" instead of stating "inactive", and I think this is because they do affe...

taking subutex and percocet together

My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a percocet. I usually take 15 mg percocet at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick? ## I have been taking subutex for the last month or so. about 2 weeks ago i had a terrible migraine, so I took a 10mg percocet. I went into full withdrawal. Throwing up constantly, na...

Subutex and Percocet

I only took two Subutex 8 milligrams. How long till I can take Oxycodone 15 mg? ## You will still need to wait at least 72 hours, before the Oxycodone will be effective, due to the Suboxone blocking it's affect, unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. 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? ## First of all, he said subutex, not suboxone. That being said, 16mg is quite a bit so I would wait at least 24 hours. You won't go into withdrawal as it doesn't contain the same naloxone that suboxone has. You might not feel it though as the subutex is still working. No need to take such...

White bar shaped pill with Y 21

I came across a pill in my purse. It's a 4 score bar with Y on one side and 21 on the other. Someone told me it's a xanax but I can't find any information online about it....

Inactive ingredients: - Silicon Dioxide - Starch, Corn - Docusate Sodium - Sodium Benzoate - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline ## You shouldn't be carrying any strange pills Danny in your Purse.

White pill with 44334

White pill with 44334 ## that is most likely over the counter headache relief, i have a whole bottle of them, CVS brand ## I have those too. Its CVS Headache Relief (coated caplets)! ## Just to confirm, Pill imprint 44 334 has been identified as Extra strength headache relief acetaminophen (250 mg ), aspirin (250 mg), and caffeine (65 mg). It is used to treat migraines; headaches; pain and fever; as well as osteoarthritis. Editor's note: this message lacks a proper citation ## Since we are likely dealing with an over the counter product here, it is possible that more than one type of otc med will carry similar inscriptions. I did find another product called "Stay Awake" by Rite Aid, which is an oblong white tablet with 44-344 on one side and a score mark on the other. It con...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Xanax In San Antonio, TX

I recently moved to San Antonio, TX and need to find a local doctor that will prescribe me xanax for my anxiety. ## I am not familiar with doctors in that area, but one piece of advice I can offer is not to call doctors and ask if they will prescribe a certain medication. When you do this, you will usually just get told no immediately, because most doctors see it as drug seeking behavior. The best thing you can do, if someone does recommend a doctor, is to set up and appointment and make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records. Most doctors are more apt to follow the prescribing practices of their colleagues, when they can see the documented information. Learn more Xanax details here. Does anyone else have any suggestions to add? ## alamo mental health. dr earl stenger. M...

I see so many bad effects, who has experienced good?

I've been on LYRICA for almost a month, it was kind of a last resort for me. I have had chronic back/nerve pain (unknown cause) for 20 months now. Neurosurgeon and Orthopedic both say surgery is not an option. They recommended a spinal cord stumulator but im weary of it. LYRICA has given me energy and I sleep better. I cook and clean and laundry gets done...that hasn't happened since before pain started. I feel more positive but my moods change quickly. Has anyone else had these effects? ## There are plenty of people that have had good experiences with it, it's just that they aren't the ones that usually go hunting up a website for information. :-) It's a simple fact that most people don't share their good experiences with something, they only hunt up a site like...

round white pill with j 18

I have a handful of small white round pills with J on one side and 18 on the other. I cannot find this exact configuration on any website. The closest I can find is J 10 or J 5, which are Donepezil. Based on other evidence I suspect it may be Modafinil but am unable to verify this. ## It is modafinil 100% I have a hundred or so of them Guaranteed ## What is the mg of them I have some also but have no idea ## J 18 is modafinil in the 100mg configuration. Cheers. ## Do you know which manufacturer makes them with J18 specifically.

What is nizagara?

I received pills that were supposed to be viagra ## Nizagara is supposed to be a foreign version of Viagra - active ingredient Sildenafil Citrate. This is a male enhancement pill for libido. You can find a long discussion thread about this at: Forums/view_drug_submission.asp?Drug=nizagara&Page=148070 ## I tried it and it totally works awesome!! The difference between this and Viagara is there was no headache after with the nizagara. Enjoy! ## I filled a prescription for Viagara from a Canadian Pharmacy and received Nizagara 100Mg that was sent from India. These tablets came just in the plastic with foil back containers and no box with directions for use. They are also Blue and oval shaped. None of the descriptions I have red describe them in an oval shape so I am wondering if these ...

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...

Eliquis causing weight gain and tiredness?

Hi, my name is Laura and I just started taking eliquis about 2 1/2 months ago and I have gained 21 pounds which is highly unusual for me. Usually my weight remains steady. I have also been incredibly tired all day long which makes work next to impossible. As well as not having any energy to spend with my children. I am only 30, and was put on eliquis due to having a second pe and cumaden not being an efficient way to control my blood. Is it possible the eliquis is causing these problems? My Dr. Just blows them off when I talk to him. It is very frustrating. ## Hello, Laura! How are you? Yes, you are not the first person to report experiencing such side effects from this medication and the FDA does report that they are possible. You may also experience headache, dizziness, easy bruising ...
