Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
588 Replies RSS
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...

Why was I taken off of Soma for my pain??
17 Replies RSS
I've decided at my next Dr. appt to ask for my Soma back. I have a certain bone disease, and the only thing that helped the awful pain from it was Soma. I'm tired of being in pain & if the Soma is the only thing that helps, then why deny me the Soma that are completely legal???? Enough is enough!!! If he denies to re-prescribe it, then put me back on Oxycontin 80mg a day. Does anyone know why so many people I know can't get their Soma either?? ## The US government is making it very difficult for Drs to prescribe all pain medication. Drs also don't want to be part of any kind of DEA investigation if the DEA wants to delve deeper. The DEA has all access to pharmacy records and can randomly investigate. ## It's not the DEA that's behind my losing my Soma. My Dr....

conzace capsule
7 Replies RSS
side effects of conzace capsule multivitamins and minerals ## Conzace contains Vitamins A, E, C and Zinc. It is claimed to help prevent premature aging of the skin and body, as well as help treat various skin disorders. However, since these are vitamin supplements and not a drug, the side effects are not known and listed. Most vitamins do not cause many, other than some occasional stomach upset when you first take the tablet. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## How much is the price per capsule and where can I buy this? ## Conzace has been known to cause side effects including hives, urticaria, headaches, nausea. There are several cases that are not reported. I had hives and the doctor told me that he had several cases of allergy from it. So, beware. It's popular and supp...

False Positive Drug Test at My Methadone Clinic in Pittsburgh PA
19 Replies RSS
I've been going to the same methadone clinic for 6 years. I'm on a low dose of 44mg a day and am a model patient. For me, methadone was the answer. It gave me a life. I was living a terrible life before that. I had an awful childhood, started doing drugs as a teenager, eventually got hooked on opiates and worked my way up the ladder from vicoden all the way to H. Multiple rehab and jail stints cleaned me up temporarily, but I always relapsed. The last few years I lived in hotel rooms, and did what I had to do to get money. I was miserable. Finally my boyfriend and I decided we had enough and joined a methadone clinic in a last ditch effort to end the pain of our lives. After the first 3 months I never got a dirty urine again. I earned my privileges one at a time, right on time, ...

Need Help Finding Doctor To Prescribe Either Oxycodone Vicodin Or Methadone 10mg For My Chronic Pain
498 Replies RSS
I have been suffering from chronic pain for 7 years and have always been on and off pain meds from tylenol 3 to 90mg methadone at the worst of any ever taken. I decided to dose down & get off of methadone as I did not care for the "clinic" enviroment per say as I was using more for pain then for addicition. I found a dr that prescribed me the pain meds for breakthrough pain and the pill form of methadone 10mg was what I chose but now he is gone as he lost his license which sucks for me because NO ONE will give me anything, not even the methadone unless I go back to the stupid clinc and I so don't want that... DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A DR. that would prescribe anything or just something to get me through life with less pain? I am in the twin cities of Minnesota and I will dri...

I live in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. Diagnosed suffering from Degenerative Disc Disease, with Cervical Radiculopathy (one bulging disc) and Lumbar Radiculopathy (two bulging discs). These spinal problems are diagnosed by three (3) recent CAT Scans, with radiologist analyses. And yes, I have ALL of the CAT Scan CDs, and radiologist reports. I went to Frank Howard Bynes, M.D., a retired trauma surgeon, and practicing internal medicine M.D., here in Savannah, Ga, for help with severe pain control. I was written valid prescriptions for: Roxicodone 30 mg; Dilaudid 8 mg; Xanax 2 mg; Fentanyl 100mcg/hr transdermal patch; Soma 350 mg; Neurontin 800 mg.

I attend a methadone clinic in the state of pa. I've been on methadone at the same clinic for over 2 & 1/2 yrs. I've been clean since joining in may of 2011. Last Monday I had my first false/positive drug screen which came up benzos. My counsler said it's from the benadryl most likely not the Advil cold n sinus I took the night before my drug screen . Muy supervisor at the clinic was told the original lab that fulfills our drug screens at the clinic told her it wouldn't be from the benadryl. They took away my take homes while it is being sent out to be tested again. Will further testing break it down more to show that I have only took my methadone vitamins benadryl and Advil cold & sinus. I am very stressed out because I now have to wake up myself and 2yr old son...

Inderal propranolol 10mg- hair loss
41 Replies RSS
please reply if your hair has fallen out and or you have had weight gain. if your hair has not fallen out please also reply. Thank you.......... ## Propranolol is a beta blocker and almost all of the medications in this class are known to cause weight gain and hair loss as side effects in some people that take them. Have you consulted your doctor? You may want to talk to them about trying something different in this class, such as Carvedilol, which is known to cause fewer side effects. ## Yes i've been taking propranolol for about 4 years at 10mg and almost 2 years ago i went all the way up to 160 for migraines. My hair started falling out by the handfulls after the birth of my twins. I thought it was a result of birth and then shortly I went on a 500 calorie diet and blamed my hair...

The CVS pain police
90 Replies RSS
CVS, a company involved in scandalous behavior in the past is now going to dictate policy on pain meds and prescribing. I urge all pain patients to contact your public officials to not allow this company to now play god with what is prescribed to you superseding your doctors orders and for many patients to file litigation against this company and the CDC or any other governmental agencies that allow these criminals to become your doctors and set the rules. This organization cannot be allowed to set the rules when it comes to your healthcare. They have again overstepped their authority and this latest fiasco shows how they have no regard to patients who need these medications for quality of life. Trying to take medication from people who need it is criminal. Just google this company and ...

what will show up as codeine/morphine in a drug test
5 Replies RSS
I am highly allergic to codeine and morphine. My pm dr did a urine drug test on me and sent to a lab and it came back positive for both however, I have not taken codeine or any form of it or morphine. I'm on opana which is oxymorphone but they said it doesn't show as morphine. I'm really upset about this as I go into anaphalaxis if I take any lortab or morphine but I'm ok on opana as its a derivitive of morphine but not the same family. What meds could show positive as this for someone who hasn't taken either and is highly allergic? ## I have been on 125mcg Duragesic patch change 72 hr. This was increased from 100 mcg a year ago by a pain clinic. I also take fiorcet for miagraines, they called today to say my urine hit for morphine, I don't take morphine how coul...

stopping lisinopril
113 Replies RSS
I have been taking 10 mg/day of Lisinopril for 3 months and have developed a tightening in the chest and flu like symptoms. Within the past 3 weeks I have felt progressively worse and would like to stop. Is it ok to just quit or must I wean myself off? ## Lisinopril is used to help control high blood pressure. That said, most of these medications can cause dangerous rebound effects if you have been on them for a period of time and abruptly stop taking them, this can include increased blood pressure and heart rate, with the risk of heart attack and stroke. The side effects that you are experiencing are normal for this class of medications, you may also experience headache and dizziness. If it is getting worse, however, and not tapering off, you should speak to your doctor immediately abo...

Isoxilan Tablet Dosing & Administration

When do mommy's take an isoxilan tablet?As i've heard mommy can only takr the medicine if she feels pain..But the doctor says take it 3x a day?should i take it duringg if i feel pain or just take it 3x a day coz the OB gyne prescribed it? ## Isoxsuprine is used to relax the uterus and smooth muscles, therefore, it is intended to be taken to prevent premature labor. Thus, you should take it 3 times a day, just as your doctor prescribed. Otherwise, if you are having a problem that causes the risk of premature labor, by the time you are feeling the pain, it could be too late to take it and stop you from going into labor early. Most medications work best when they are in the body, in a regular, steady level. Are there any other questions? ## ask ko lng isoxilan kc ung bngy sakin ng ...

can a etg test be passed after 30 hours sober
121 Replies RSS
I've been clean from alcohol for 30 hours. I've had a gallon of water yesterday and one before testing. I drank creatine mixture to raise my levels. Should I pass a etg? ## Depends on how much you drank, when you stopped and how many hours after the test, plus your metabolism factors in. There is no way to speed up the clearance from the body and dilution of the urine is your best bet. Eat a lot of red meat which will keep the creatinine level up and be a little over-hydrated when you go in. some places will consider a too dilute urine a positive, FYI. Many people have passed in less than 24 hours with 1-2 drinks. normal drinking would very often pass in 48 hours. also depends on what you would call a "drink", lol. but if you drank a pint of vodka and testing today or to...

i took 8 mg suboxone at 5am. when can i take heroin again? ## NEVER. Don't be foolish. ## First: when taking suboxone it is very dangerous to combine any drugs with them.

I am afraid that my test will show up positive for an opiate all I have in my system is methadone but I forgot to tell my probation officer will it show up positive for opiates or will the methadone I'm not show up ## Methadone and opiates come up as two different readings so if all u had is methadone that is all that will show ## Methadone will not show up on a 5 panel drug test. It does not read ss an opiate it is synthetic. ## It'll show but not as an opiate as methadone it different then just a regular opiate. ## Did u ever get an answer to your question because I'm kinda in the same boat...

doctors who will prescribe anxiety medications
11 Replies RSS
Ihave been taking xanax the past 18 years only as needed. This medication not only helps with my severe anxiety and anger problems. My current doctor for the past 2.5 years has been giving me xanax to take twice a day for a 30 day supply and this usually last me about 6months. Well my PCP has been instructed by his NP that new guidelines state he cant prescribe xanax but klonopin is ok. Is this truely a guidline in MS or simply a recommendation? As I can not find any literature confirming this. Although the klonopin is working ok it takes hours for my anger to subside when it would be immediate with xanax. My other complaint is that klonopin has a longer half life and remains in my body longer than xanax causing me to be extremely sleepy the morning after taking the klonopin but never h...

roxy white 30mg pill

Rhodes pharmaceutical 30 mg huge white pill. Is this really oxycodone and why is it so big.. I'm afraid to take it. ## Hello, Julie! How are you? I assume you're talking about the tablet with the RP 30 marking on it? If so, yes, Rhodes Pharmaceuticals does list it as containing 30mgs of Oxycodone. The size of tablets can vary from manufacture to manufacturer, depending on which inactive ingredients they use, but it's nothing to worry about, as long as you received it from a licensed U.S. pharmacy. 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? ## I just got my first prescription for the...
