Avatar f tn Yesterday my doc says she can no longer prescribe pain meds and is flagging my chart because I COULD be selling because my screen was clean. Well, it is clean because at that dosage the script doesn't last a month so obviously when taking a UA it will be negative. I made a formal complaint and also emailed my doc detailing what the script says. It also does not say "must last 30 days". My doc also said she has never had a problem with me and I have always been compliant!
267288 tn?1256278177 Does anyone know what the equivalent dosage of Armour is to 1.25 mg and 1.0 mg levothyroxine respectively? Also, if anyone knows the equivalent Armour to 1.0 mg levothyroxine/ .25 mg Cytomel... Thank you very much in advance....
Avatar n tn I posted earlier about some unusual experiences with sub but didn't give any details. My doc recommended me take either 4mg or 8 to start. I was in mild WDs, so I said I'll take 8 to make sure it would get me off those. He agreed, and said if i need more two hours later, take another. Anyway, to make a long story short, I ended up extremely sick the next day.

403156 tn?1290150018 For the mood chart, it would be nice to have the option to add medications ourselves. There are so many different meds out there, the list provided doesn't cover them all, and it would be hard to keep up with them. The option should be to enter the name of the med ourselves. The tracker is great, but more med options is needed. Is this function already there and I am not seeing it?
Avatar n tn I know I am now dependent on vicodin. I felt this way once before after knee surgery, but just tapered off. I also quit smoking cold turkey so I am fairly motivated to go the course. After a second knee surgury this year, I am having trouble getting off the 375 miligarms dose 3 x a day. Stopping for a day results in chills at feet and hands, no sleep, and increased emotional pressure to just pop one. That is especially true at night.

Avatar n tn Vicodin is a FDA pregnancy class C drug, but again...you need to define "tons" for us.
1137363 tn?1260714411 s no way to enter that into this chart) and (2) the ability to add the dosage, rather than just indicating that there's been a change in treatment. I suppose the second aspect could be kept in the journal, but with no way to enter the levothyroxin in the chart, it looks like I haven't been on meds for 5 years.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar f tn I have chronic pain, I had surgery for severe tennis elbow in 2007, now I have developed arthritis in the same elbow, my ortho doctor has me taking Vicodin 5/500 twice a day, can this become an ddiction?
Avatar f tn Hi! Congratulations! Yes, it is safe to take Vicodin while pregnant. As with anything else during pregnancy however, the less the better. Take only the minimum dosage that alleviates the pain, and take it only when plain Tylenol and other methods haven't worked. One other thing about the combination of Vicodin and pregnancy is that it is a real set up for constipation! So watch out for that! Good luck!
Avatar f tn I have been taking 5-6 Vicodin, 5-6 Phenergan, 5-6 Vistiril and sometimes 1-2 Elavil every day for more than a year for pain and nausea. I guess I am just confused because I don't feel addicted to them because they help me too much. When i dont take them I am in way too much pain to function. My question is that I am supposed to be having surgery so the pain will stop but will i still feel the need to take all these meds?
232328 tn?1207090071 I was prescribed anti-depressants along with vicodin, but the vicodin became my anti-depressant and I started abusing it, which led to more problems. Just a word of caution.
Avatar f tn 1) Dosage of medications per day, as this helps the P. (and myself) to evaluate the effect on a certain amount, raise or lowering of dosage of each medication. Would it be possible to add Amitriptiline as AD? 2) A way to link the Sleep Tracker with my Mood Tracker, as sleep seems to have a lot of incidence on bipolar, it's regularity and amount ... leading to hypomania for instance.
1374564 tn?1295059520 On Tuesday I had the worst migraine I have had in a very long time and I could not get in to see my doctor so I caved and went to my sister for some Vicodin. She gave me two 10/325's of which I took one immediately. While it did alleviate the pain almost immediately, it made me feel queasy, floaty and completely out of control. I hated the sensation! I had constant dry mouth and often was startled awake by my own gagging.
1511671 tn?1316564203 I have Fibromyalgia and was stable for some time on a low dose of Vicodin. I got an inplant last fall for pain in the occipital region of my brain. A "Occipital Neuromodulation" stimulator. It helped initially but as with a lot of treatments the pain relief gradually subsided. I went to my PCP and told him the two vicodin a day were not helping anymore so he suggested Methadone for long term pain management. I was a little put off because of the negative image Methadone has.
Avatar f tn Can you please look at my chart...do you think I o'd? I don't think I did. THe past couple of days I had ovulation pains and cramps. This is my second month on clomid 50mg, and the first month I o'd on cd19. Let me know what you think. Thanks! http://www.fertilityfriend.
Avatar m tn can a pharmacist call a dentist that wrote a prescription for Vicodin and tell him that i am taking suboxone,i thought that addiction problems were confidential. She never came and spoke t me, to find out if I had worked something out with the doctor that prescribes the medication. I believe if she was to call anyone she should of called my suboxone doctor!!!
Avatar n tn i have taken vicodin for about 10 years now. I have never increased the dosage or abuse the med. my dr recently put me on tramadol which i'll try anything. i am to take 2 tramadol twice daily or as needed along with 800 mg ibuprofen twice daily. i have not found any resolve with this medication (i have been on it 2 weeks). i also have not had any typical withdrawl symptoms from stopping the vicodin. i have degeneration of my t3 and t4 vertebre and spinal rotation and of course subluxation.
Avatar f tn I have been on 750 Vicodin for 16 years….low dosage for lower back and sciatica. I now take 500s - 1 tablet a day (1/2 am and 1/2 pm). I also have been on various anti depressants since I can't remember.
Avatar f tn I am not sure where to start. I have been taking vicodin for almost two years now. I take 6-10 a day and I want to stop. I have stopped in the past but always start back up. I have never got help before. I am scared to ask my doctor, because I work full-time and have kids. Can your family doc. report you to your job or anything like that? Can they prescribe you something to help ween off. What should I do? Please help.
