gabapentin dot physical

I am trying to find out if gabapentin is ok to be in the system (body) of a truck driver. Legal presciption from a doctor. ## Can a truck driver pass a DOT physical if he takes gabapentin? ## Hello, Jeanie! How are you? I'm sorry, but from what I've found the answer is no. There is an automatic disqualification for anyone taking any type of antiseizure medication. This is due to the fact that the person either has epilepsy, or if they are taking it for nerve pain or mood disorders, the medication could put them at risk of a seizure, if they miss a dose or are late taking it. Having a seizure while driving could be very dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects to this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Is there a...

White round pill with check mark on one side and NT

White round pill imprinted N T on one side and a check imprinted on the opposite side. ## I have these too. Have you uncovered what they are? ## They are from India and they are labeled and being dispensed as 1 mg alprazolam. They're not working for me so I'm a bit scared to know exactly what's in them because I have taken them. ## Anyone tried them yet? I have just got some been told they were Valium, is there any effect? ## Did you get them from India or do you know where they came from? The ones I got from India were supposed to be 2 mg Alprazolam/Xanax. I don't know what they were but they didn't make me feel any different. ## They are in fact hand pressed alprazolam (if you taste a nibble of one it will be bitter and disgusting). Hand pressed in Mexico, some leg...

Side effects from stopping cymbalta

Help I'm on day 8 of going off cymbalta and I'm in so much pain I can't sleep my side hurts and I'm so down I just don't think I'm going to make it thru another day any help out there ## Hi Machelle, I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time with the Cymbalta withdrawal process. You're definitely not alone! As you probably know, for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is usually to taper off of them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. In addition to that, I'd also suggest making yourself a tapering schedule on a calendar to track your ...

Changing from Metoprolol to Losartan

My EP Dr told me to cold Turkey my Metoprolol 50mg bid and start Losartan once daily... is this ok? ## It is always best to follow your doctor's instructions. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Losartan as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and increased urination. Have you made the switch, yet? If so, how are you doing? ## I was given 30 mg of nefedipine and was weaned down from 50 mg to 25mg of metoprolol Cardiologist said she had to wean me down.

pain management for fibromyalgia

What are the best medications to treat fibromyalgia? I am always hurting somewhere on my body. Especially my back, knees, and hips. I am so exhausted. I wake up every morning feeling like I didn't sleep at all. My doctor gave gabapentin 600mg 3 times a day. They don't work and neither does lyrica. I am just so tired of the pain. I also have trouble walking when my knees, back and hips hurt. Any info you can give me would greatly appreciated. ## There is really no best medication that I can mention, it can vary from person to person. The medications you've mentioned you've mentioned are great examples, they don't work for you, but they do work well for many others that try them. The NIH states the some antidepressants can help, such as Cymbalta or Savella. Have you tr...

how long does suboxone stay in your system for a urine test

i just need to know how long untill i take a drug test it wont show up in my urine ## From what I a reading, most opiates can be detected in urine for 3 days, although this can vary due to your metabolism and how much you have been taking and for how long. Suboxone is an opiate and will show up as one. However, if you have a prescription, then all you have to do is alert them to this fact, when you go in to have the test done. Do you have any other questions? ## Suboxone is an OPIOD not and Opiate and does NOT show up in any drug screen unless specifically looking for it. No employers use this unelss you are going to be piolot or such. ## I took one soboxin yesterday (24hrs) and now want to use my my directed opitate as perscribed. I this okay, will it work negatively or what? ## I'...

how to get suboxone out of system for urine test

I took a qtr of saboxn sat night n have a drug test friday i havent did no kind of drugu in about 7 months. N i weigh 155 n in decent shape do u think i will b able to pass the test plus ive been drinking water plz let me knw what i should do thanks very much ## Andy, There isn't anything you can do. Drinking water will have no effect in the metabolic breakdown for this substance.7 months of drug free recovery is awesome.Relapse is a normal part of the recovery process. There are no guarantees but such a small dose almost a week out will most probably be negative IF that was the only dose you used. Hang in there. ## So drinking water doesn't help get it out of ur system or is it mainly on ur metabolism? Plus it's i think a 6 or 7 panel cup n stick test. Jus a lil afraid n as...

need to know how long it takes for suboxone taken 1 on mon and 1 on tues to get out of your system for a urine and lab test

I take 3 8 mg suboxone on 2 days a week how long if I stop tomorrow will it be out of my system so I can pass a urine test and lab test? ## Don,t know how long it takes to leave system but unless there specifically testing for suboxone your probably gonna be allright. My dr. told me that most jobs don,t test for bupe. its kind of expensive. ## U have have a special test for subs it looks like a pregnancy test and most jobs don't go that far nun that I known of only sub clinics to check u r taking it ## It takes suboxone 7-14 days if you are on more that 1 a day ## And what if you are only taking one 20 per day, will it register on a stick test (urine)? ## Subs will not show up on a regular Urine drug test... ## I took a 1/4 of suboxone 2 days in a row. Now i've got to take a uri...

never taken suboxone and now in my urine test

My friend gets drugged tested each week. If it comes out positive to any controlled substance he goes to jail. 10 days ago, his test came back false/ positive for his urine drug test at his jail. They sent it off to be screened and it showed 130 milligrams of suboxin in it. He swears he hasn't taken anything like that!! All he has taken in the last couple of weeks is 4 ibruprofins! I am thinking someone slipped it in a drink at work....can someone help me here about what the next step would be to prove his innocence? ## If they sent it off to a lab for further screening and it still showed a positive for it, then it isn't very likely that it's a false positive and it's doubtful there's much he can do. When they do an initial test, such as the dip ones and they show a...

Suboxone and urine test

I know Suboxone does not show up in a standard urine test. But the job I am applying for may do an extended test. I have a prescription from my Doc I am on 16mg a day and it is working great. But I was wondering if I stopped taking it how long til my urine is clean, I appreciate your comments. ## how long does suboxone stay in your urine ## just to inform you this does show up in a standard drug test. also it depends on how long you have been on the drug and how many mg to know about how long it will take to get it out of your system. ## Actually, suboxone will not show up in any drug test unless it is specifically looked for. I was tested weekly for a long time, and had the full 12 panel extended test done monthly, and nothing showed up. I asked my dr and his reply was that unless subo...

Adderall manufactured by Teva not working

I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is ridiculous, and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount for medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly ...

Have been using urizide 50mg and propranolol 40mg once daily for the last 21yrs. Now doc has taken me off urizide coz of gout problems and substituted it with nefedipine brown tablets. Bp level are not stable.., ## I am changing from urizide to lorsatan give advice ## What are your current BP levels? The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Have you started taking the medication? ## I’m on 50 mg of nefetdpine for high blood pressure, I mean it is known to cause heart attacks at the rate of 60% especially in elderly adults should I switch my medication

white wwd10 valium

ww on 1 side and d10 on the other tastes like Vals but r they? They are known locally as white Indian Valium. I know there's a lot of dodgy Vals about but i have a benzodiazepine problem and they're the only things that keep me going, but there's been a lot of deaths lately in the areas (lanarkshire / Glasgow). Can anyone help? Thanks. ## Hi, i can tell you that white d10s with a score on that side and ww on the other are safe and they're loose. The ones that dont have ww on the other side are fake. ## If they have a lemon taste is it possible they r cut with suboxone? ## If you're not getting your medication filled at a licensed pharmacy, then the only honest way to prove that they are Valium would be to have the pill's contents analyzed by a lab and/or drug pan...

Artrosilium pills

I'm looking into the availability of artrosilium over the counter. I would like to know what the cost is and how it is sold? By the month or by x number of months at a time? Please provide details on this. Thank you. ## This mostly comes in a gel now from what I've seen. There appear to be a couple of listings on eBay {aff link added}. I also got a link in the Artrosilium Gel discussion to Health Emporium (UK) and ran into the pills. They are from the UK but deliver almost everywhere. Good Luck! ## I would like to purchase Artrosilium pills and gel. I heard by many this is a very good product for my knees and arthritic rheumatoid fingers Mary from New Zealand {edited for privacy}

Small round pink pill labelled phentermine

The label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many databases but most phentermine pills are white and blue. Can anyone help me identify this pill? ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but wa...

new dark blue oxycodone pill marked with M 30

Is there a new 30 milligram oxycodone with M on one side and 30 on the other that is dark blue instead of light blue? ## I do not believe that there is. I came across this blue m30 before. I bit into the tab to taste that familiar taste and it was a tasteless chalky substance... In other words fake. Just my experience.... ## To my understanding, the round light blue 30mg Oxycodone pill by Mallinckrodt with [M] on one side and "30" over a score line on the back has been around for quite some time & appears to be the only legitimate version with this imprint/depiction. If yours is dark blue and it's not from a licensed pharmacy then it's probably counterfeit. And if it is from a licensed pharmacy then I would contact the pharmacy (or manufacturer) directly for more spe...

Antibiotics That Start With M

I lost a piece of paper that said what I'm allergic to, I think it's an antibiotic that starts with an M. It it gives me a rash, my back starts to feel itchy, I had to take it for a blood infection. ## Hi igor, Antibiotics starting with "M" include: Meropenem, Mezlocillin, Meticillin, Moxifloxacin, Mafenide, and Minocycline. Do any of these names ring a bell? I'm sure there may be others out there, but this is what I could gather at the moment. I hope it helps! ## Metronidazole. Also interacts with propyline glycol, which is in liquid for e-cigarettes.
