Rhodes/Purdue buprenorphine hcl 8mg RP b8 vs Roxanne 54 411

I have made the switch from the 8mg films to 8mg buprenorphine tablets only. With all the research I've done and experience I do my best to stay away from actavis mylan and nowadays sandoz. I noticed everyone has enjoyed the Roxanne now westward generics amongst hi-tech coming in second/mylan. I have no experience with mylan bup and don't want to take the risk even as mylan has always been a waste imo. I'm not a fan of allergan (actavis) taking over watson so depending on the drug dispenses I most stay away. There are as of now 7 manufacturers of generic buprenorphine hcl 8mg (generic subutex). They are in order of my preferred with not much experience except with brand name: *roxanne (now westward pharma)- 54 411 *hi tech- 8 ^(arrow) *mylan- M924 *teva (allergen/activas own...

Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets - How do they work?

No improvement after taking this tablets, how should i take them to see changes on me? ## Cyproheptadine is actually an antihistamine, which is commonly used to treat allergic reactions. It can cause some increased appetite, as a side effect, but it is really not safe to use, without a doctors approval and supervision, because it is a drug and does carry risks. Have you consulted a doctor? ## I would like to share my experience with the Apetito tablets. In 2006 l started loosing weight and had skin rashes.I became the shadow of myself both home and office.My face turned black and l was depressed.No matter how beautiful clothes l wore they just could not fit.People started ignoring me even at work.A friend of mine introduced me to Apetito tablets.I was desperate and wanted anything that ...

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, ...

overdose of sargeform

ive taken approx. 5 sargeform and one hour later i took cokes what can happen to me ## You must never do that. An overdose of multivitamin can damage your liver and kidneys. Take only one a day for not more than 30 days and then stop. But in your case since you have taken five tablets, you need to see a doctor.

Pain Medication, oxycodone, prescriptions, pharmacy, dilaudid

Anyone know if dilaudid works similar to oxycodone? i am going to switch to dilaudid 8's or atleast the doc offered it to. me however now all the pharms seem to be charging prices almost as much as the oxycodone , at least according to friend of mine, any input is greatly appreciated. i live in clearwater FL, doc is 10 miles away in tampa also is there anyone on here that knows any accurate facts on what the hell is really going on here with pain med prices?? please educate me!!!!! thanks in advance!! ## There really just seems to be crazy stuff going on at all the pharmacies in Florida, though no, there are no facts available as to why. As to working similar to Oxycodone, yes, Dilaudid is also a narcotic, so in theory, it should work for pain as well as Oxycodone. However, medicati...

Pain medication seeking

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people all the time who go from practice to practice with stories trying to get narcotics. Patients need to go to drug rehab, find a psychiatrist, do physical therapy, lose weight, and get a job!! This is no way to live and we do not want to jeopardize our licenses feeding into addiction. I have personally been in three serious car accidents (none were my fault) and have had back surgeries, injections, PT etc. but have NEVER taken controlled substances except for two days after surgery. I have chronic back pain but I exercise and take care of myself and go on with my life!! Evidence-based practice tells us that narcotics are no better and pain control than ibuprofe...

yutopar aka ritodrine

My husband and I have had our daughter which is now 30 tested for everything and the doctors can't seem to be able to give us a diagnosis, and things are not getting any better, my beautiful daughter has struggled and suffered so much and it breaks my heart to know that Yutopar that was given to me, which affected my baby and I knowing, my that daughter is the one who suffers from it on a daily basis. My second child is normal, and I did not take the drug while carring him. I would really like to talk to all of you, something needs to be done to care for these kids that are now adults that can not cope, sleep, eat, extremely depressed, sucidal thoughts, learning problems, unable to conform to society, lies, bi-polar, anti-social, can't function in everyday life and with everyday...

My concern is that this MLKCM brand make me feel ill. It causes heart palpitations, increased bowel movements, and it does not help the pain as well add the other.

Mallinckrodt Hydrocodone

I have been using brand name Norco 10 325 for some time. recently because of the DEA I cannot get them and nowi mallinckrodt s the only drug my pharmacy sells. I have read so many bad things about them on the internet, frankly I am about to have a nervous breakdown as I recently had rotator cuff surgery and I have to have the pain control to complete my therapy. I have heard good things but everyone says that the one to say the good things are crazy. help!!! ## I understand your concern, however, the only way to know if they will help you, or not, is to actually try them! You're not doing yourself any good by getting upset over it, please calm down. :-) It isn't that the people on either side of what you've read are crazy, it's that everyone is different, so some may not...

Xanax mylan a4 vs bars

Ok so I'm prescribed 4 bars a day.. I've only heard s*** about the mylan pies a4 2mg...just got them... What's anyones experienced opinion?...I mean i feel fine, just took a cpl... Why do most people hate them? ## Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be differences between generic medications, they are allowed to differ by as much as plus or minus 20% of the active ingredient from the original name brand. Thus, if someone is used to taking a generic that is a little higher, then suddenly are switched to one that's a little lower, it may not work as well for them. However, the differences are usually slight and one's body will adjust in a week, or so. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such...

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...

Diazepam Terapia

Can u please advise me about these pills? I have diazepam by Terapia and am worried that they are not genuine. ## I have tried these very recently, a strip 10 of white tablets, labeled diazepam terapia 10mg comarinate and I am 99.999% sure that they are bad. Usually when I take genuine ones made by actavis, teva or roche (and I only ever need my prescribed dose to get the nice relaxed feeling), with every ounce of my anxiety that I have at all times without diazepam taken out of my body.. So I took a dose of these terapia and an hour later, absolutely nothing. So I took another dose and still no changer. So within an hour and 40 mins I still felt absolutely nothing. I had another dose in my bag but I thought there was absolutely no point in trying to take any more because I'd alread...

hydrocodone acetaminophen with Ibuprofen

I just started taking acetaminophen + hydrocodone 7.5/500 and still have pain (tooth). Can I take Ibuprofen at the same time? ## yes you can, little secert you can hold a mouthful of listerine or alcohol on tooth an as long as its there it will relieve pain not unless its abcessed, don t swallow either as alcohol an apap don t mix ## Does hydrocodone-acetaminophen curve your appetitve? Does it cause itching in the following areas? sole of the feet and palms of the hands? ## I have the same issues of itching but notice it only when I take Baclofin (muscle relaxer) with it. But I have no hives or marks from itching. Just an all over itch for no reason. Is tis like a small allergic reaction of the two medicines combined? And is that normal.

Bupropion helped me quit smoking

I started taking Bupropion a week ago and I quit smoking after 9 years. This works! ## Congrats James, great to hear a success story! Did you find the process pretty easy to follow, and do you have to taper down your dose at all before stopping completely? Also, what's your plan to permanently stay off the cigarettes once you are off the medication? Wishing you the best with this! ## Thank you Roy!!! Still on the medication but almost finished have no urge to smoke. Once finished will reply and let you know how it goes. I feel if I stopped taking this now I would not have an urge to smoke. Urge feels like it is gone. :) Will keep you updated my friend. ## That's great, hopefully the urge will not return once you stop taking the bupropion. But maybe have some ideas lined up for h...

Greenstone Sertraline Discontinued

How do I find the inactive ingredients in Greenstone Sertraline? How can I find a generic that has the same inactive ingredients? I am very sensitive to chemicals. ## Hi Sue, If you have a specific pill imprint, it could be possible to identify the inactive ingredients of that tablet. Depending on the dosage/etc, each available milligram is likely to have a different set of binders & fillers. The 25mg oblong green tablet marked "G 4960" with a National Drug Code of 59762-4960 contains: Calcium Phosphate, Dibasic, Dihydrate D & c Yellow No. 10 Fd & c Blue No. 1 Fd & c Red No. 40 Aluminum Oxide Hydroxypropyl Cellulose (Type H) Hypromelloses Magnesium Stearate Cellulose, Microcrystalline Polyethylene Glycols Polysorbate 80 Titanium Dioxide The 50mg oblong blue tabl...

Coumadin vs warfarin

My mom was on coumadin for many years but then her insurance company told her she had to take warfarin as this is the one they would pay for. Is there really any different in these two drugs? It seems to me that she has been having more problems with the warfarin (keeping this medication at the right level) than the coumadin. I was told they were the same medications and do the same. I just wanted to know if some people have difficulties taking warfarin vs coumadin??? Thanks. ## No, they work exactly the same for me. I have been taking one or the other for 3 1/2 years because of 2 pulmonary embolisms. I take 10mg a day. At times I go up and down but have been steady for a couple months now on warfarin. Food will change the way it works. Salads and some other greens really mess things up...
