Shortage of Soma (Carisoprodol) DAN 5513

I am writing this thread forum to discuss the shortage on soma and carisoprodol. Recently even the best pharmacies in my area are completely out of soma. Had to wait a week just to get my second best preferred soma 350mg generic. I had to settle for Jubliant Cadista Pharma generics which are the imprinted OP 35 white tablets. I have been on the Watson formulation for over 5 years which are imprinted DAN 5513. Luckily when Activas Elizabeth / Mayne Pharma acquired Watson Pharma then of which now Teva Pharma has acquired Activas medications. Activas was smart as they kept the Watson formulation of soma and dispensed the watson generic formulation. Last month I was able to find the watson DAN 5513 tablets and was informed they would have them in stock in future no problem. This was not the...

Prempro is a miracle drug

I am on my third day taking Prempro and I am floored by how good I feel already. I have been through a lot over the past six years and it caused depression then anxiety. At some point during this time, I went into perimenopause. Lately the anxiety was so bad that I just didn't want to go on anymore. I refuse to go on anti anxiety medication due to personal experiences with loved ones. My doctors didn't think that HRT would help because there were underlying issues causing my depression and anxiety. In only three days I am a new person. Yes life's problems are still there but how I react to them has improved 100%. I am staying asleep all night after years of not being able to sleep more than 5 hours. My dryness is gone and I feel attraction/attractive again. My mind is gettin...

Buro Sol discontinued?

I went to my pharmacy today here in Canada to be told that Smith Kline Glaxo is no longer making Buro Sol. Is this the case and, if it is, what are my alternatives? ## You mean the antiseptic powder? Unfortunately, since it's never been available in the U.S., I can't find much information on it or why it was discontinued. I can't even find a listing of the ingredients. Learn more antiseptic details here. Did you try asking a pharmacist if they can recommend an alternative? I would, but I'm not sure what's available in Canada. ## I currently am using Buro-sol powder with water to make solution.

How to find a pharmacy in my area who carries the greenstone generic for xanax

My longtime pharmacy stopped having the greenstone generic of xanax. How could I find another local pharmacy that does carry them? ## Hello, Lori! How are you? I'm sorry, but the only thing you can really do is ask at the various pharmacies, but you'll need to go in person, with your prescription in hand. If you just call, they have no way of knowing if you're a legitimate customer with a need, or a potential thief, so they won't give you an accurate answer. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Your doctor can write you the proper paper work for a pharmacy to order that specific medications you need and the pharmacy should comp...

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...

White Round Pill Adderall From Mexico With Ln

I recently bought these adderall pills while I was in Mexico and they are litlle white round pills with a bold "LN" printed on one side. Are these actually adderall or what??? HELP! ## I've done some research and the problem I've found with these pills is that people have purchased small, white round tablets with the bold LN marking as various medications in Mexico. There are posts online listing them as Phentermine, Adderall, Xanax and several others. This isn't the first time this has happened and I doubt it will be the last. However, in light of that, no I have no idea what these are, but I certainly wouldn't trust them to be Adderall. Are there any other questions or comments? ## So there is no way of finding out what pill it actually is... I took it and it f...

Just got Camber Pharm generic Percocet at Walgreens instead of the Actavis brand. It's giving me an upset stomach and causing me to feel weird. Has anyone else had a similar reaction? ## What is the dosage? Can you please post back and clarify? Is it the yellow tablet with T 194 imprinted on it?

Has anyone experienced swelling of the lower legs and ankles, combined with tingling in the fingers and toes? I'm also experiencing some nausea. My doctor told me to apply the gel to all my lesions, and I am putting in on the tops of my arms, my shoulders and back of my neck, my upper chest, my shins, and some spots on my thighs. Is that too many areas at once. ## After using Efudex and several other creams, gels, etc, and each time developing cellulitis in my lower legs, the dermatologist prescribed Solaraze, saying it was not likely to have the same effect. I was putting it on on my forehead and some other spots on my face. Sure enough, in a few weeks my leg was infected again. I stopped using it. It takes a long time for the infection to clear up even with heavy duty antibiotics....

drugs for nerve pain

a really good drug for nerve pain is neourotin or gapabentin (same thing) i may be spelling wrong. but it does wonders. your welcome. ## I am starting to wonder what is wrong with me even more because Gabapintin 600mgs does nothing at all for my pain from a frostbitten foot compounded by electrical shock while standing in some water while plugging up a buffer from a 220 volt socket Plus for some reason doctors here in Indianapolis don't have a clue as how to treat my problem. I wonder why none of them offered me any of the first medication you talked about ## It did nothing for my nerve pain too. It also made me crazy with brain zaps. ## As with any medication, Neurontin (Gabapentin) does not work for everyone that tries it. We are all different, so what works well for one person mi...

Eliquis discount coupons

Unfortunately I have a second occurrence of atrial flutter. While waiting for my cardiologist to decide next steps I was out on eliquis. When I got to the pharmacy I was informed the cost could be $500 for a 30 day supply. But thankful the pharmacist informed of a coupon to bring it down to a $10 copay. While I completed the online application she filled my prescription. Another example of the crazy run away cost of drugs and physicians prescribing with little concern of the patients cost. Thankfully this pharmacist did the right thing. Here is the web site for the coupon ## Hello Doug, how are you? That's wonderful, I'm glad your pharmacist was so helpful. Eliquis Savings and Support is a great resource both for the monetary savings, and the medication details that are provided...

Worried about taking Itraconazole

Hello, I've have resistant ringworm for awhile now. I usually take oral terbinafine and it clears up but comes back about 3 months later. My dermatologist has prescribed Itraconazole 100 MG to take twice daily for 14 days. The listed bad side effects of this medicine worried me. Also, I have read that if you take 200 MG per day, you should only take for 7 days and then wait three weeks. Is it safe to take this medicine at this dose? I'm 52 years old and don't take any other medicines. Please advise! ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? What particular side effects worried you? Perhaps if you are more specific, those can be addressed, and someone can give you more information on how likely they are to occur, and how severe they might be.

I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you?

Methocarbam vs Methocarbamol

Is Methocarbam and Methocarbamol the same thing 500mg? Or are they different? ## Likely the same thing considering the 500 mg dose. "Methocarbam" seems like it would be an abbreviation on the prescription bottle. Can you share what the tablets look like (markings, color, shape) or the NDC # on the bottle?
