Our dog was diagnoised with bone cancer and given 6 months to live. The DR. prescribed 100 mg. of RIMADYL for him. [sheep dog] 9 1/2 yrs ] and 50 mg of Tramdol. I also take Tramadol for back pain. The DR. just said to give him 2 RIMADYL A DAY and not to specific on the TRAMADOL 1 to 3 or 4 a day. I don’t want to over medicate him or under medicate him. He isn’t complaining at all yet. He is like one of our kids and wan’t to give him as much pain free time he has left. How do we know when to give him more or less pills as time goes on, and is their any other substitute meds that doesn’t cost $80.00 dollars as rimadyl does for a months worth of pills. Thank You CAROL – Filed in Carprofen – 1 Reply Continue Reading »

do you gain weight with suboxone?

Hi I’m just starting to research suboxone. I’m currently going to a methadone clinic every day and it is such a hassle. I have to get up every morning at 4am to be there in time to get to work the line is so long but that’s beside my point, My real question is Do you gain weight with Suboxone? This is my third attempt at trying to get off of opiates by taking Methadone but every single time I start taking Methadone I gain 40 to 60 pounds within the first 4 months. Most people do, some don’t I just happen to be one of them. I get so discouraged by the weight gain that I stop going to the Methadone clinic and then start using again. Sadly my mom died from using the same drug I used before treatment. – Filed in Suboxone – 24 Replies Continue Reading »

Oxycontin OC 80. 60, 40

I hope everyone will reply to my post. I ‘am like thousand of good people who live in pain every minute of the day. And now since Purdue the makers of Oxycontin has reformulated the OC to OP we all suffer. I like all has called Purdue with my concerns not only a complaint on how this new Oxycontin does not work and its side effects. What I will do if I have enough people to respond is to set up a FACEBOOK page were people can add his or her story about how the OP do not work, what side affects he or she is having. Also where everyone can boycott any medication that Purdue sells. When at the Pharmacy ask the Pharmacist to give you another brand of medication not one made by Purdue. Trust me there are many other drug companies who make the same day to day medication we take. From blood pressure meds to birth control etc. If they see that people will not go away quietly that we will be heard. – Filed in OxyContin – 3 Replies Continue Reading »

Weight gain on Pristiq??

I have been on Pristiq now since November of 2008…not quite 5 months…and I have put on 15 lbs since starting it. DESPITE working out with a trainer at the gym twice a week weight training, 3 days a week of cardio AND counting calories. My doc assured me that I would also have a decreased appetite on Pristiq, which I have yet to find true…so he has now increased my dosage to 400 mg. Does anyone have anything to add to this?? I’m just frustrated! – Filed in Pristiq – 246 Replies Continue Reading »

Levothyroxine side effects

I was recently diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. I have been taking levothyroxine for almost two weeks. For the last four or five days I have had a weird feeling. It is hard to explain. I don’t really feel dizzy but I get a strange feeling in my head. I guess you would describe it as a head rush. Has anyone else had this feeling and will it go away as my body adjusts to the levothyroxine? – Filed in Levothyroxine – 143 Replies Continue Reading »

Call Purdue Pharma about new OXYCONTIN 80MG OP

This is the number to Purdue when calling select Opt # 2 and explain the adverse reaction that you are having from the new reformulated Oxycontin. The number is 888-726-7535. If the new type is working for you then great. I and several people I spoke with said it gets stuck in your throat even with food. Plus it does not last 12 hour. I understand why they re-made it kids should not take it and as far as how people take it snort, inject or chew its their business. Nobody should tell another ADULT how to live his or her life. It sucks to live in pain it really does. Good Luck All – Filed in OxyContin – 81 Replies Continue Reading »
