Some how he manged to pass the examination in school. His friends are all adavncing in their lives but that has also no effect on his bahivior.All sorts of counselling and even punishment of sort did not yield any result. What could be the course of treatment if any to rehabilitate him to normal life.

yes, my great nephew is 20 months old was born addicted to subutex . He was in the hospital for 5 weeks after he was born because they said he was going through withdraws. they gave him morphine in the hospital. I have custody of him now and I would like to know some of the effects the drugs are going to have on him while growing up. he is very high strung and a little hard to handle at times. he is very very smart!

I have been on methadone for approx. 5 years now at a dose of 30mg taken 4 times daily. This has not only stopped any unpleasant withdrawl symptoms but has also offered considerable relief in easing chronic pain from a severe back injury 11 years ago. For the first 3 years of taking the medication I found that while it was effective in these areas their was an exceptional side effect in that it absolutely obliterated any interest in sex or even the ability to physically have sex. Also I found that I had next to no energy, making many things I used to enjoy fall by the wayside which in turn led to severe depression. After extensive talks with my Doctor I was sent for blood analysis and it was found that my level of testosterone was so low it barely registered. I was then put on a 3 week cycle of injections of 2mls of Delatestryl and for the past several years I have been the person that I used to be (it gave me my life back). Know I have been given a new Doctor at the clinic I attend and he has informed me that he is only there to prescribe methadone and will not be responsible for any other prescriptions. I do not have a family doctor and our emerg has said that this falls outside their domain. The walk in clinic treats every individual that I know so badly that their is no doubt in my mind that they will refuse to continue this presciption. (to give you some perspective on our walk in clinic - I went their several mnths back with sever pneumonia and the Doctor looked at my chart once and told me that I would get know %$#&# narcotics from him and to leave immediately) Any suggestions on how to get across to my knew methadone Doctor (who has only been in prescribing methadone for 2 months) just how much this would severely negatively impact my life?

I used to be a heroin addict. I was prescribed suboxone for 2 or 3 months by an excellent psychiatrist. I am now clean and have been for almost a year. The porblem is that I have been diagnosed with lymphoma. The pain is pretty intense, and I have 3 lymph nodes suspected to be cancerous, all are very painful. 2 separate growths have not been fully evaluated, and are not painful. The prescription monitoring program shows my doctors that I have been prescribed suboxone in the passed, and Ive already told my doctors about my passed addiction anyway. Now because of the suboxone, I cannot recieve pain medications. If I can, the doctors I have been to do not feel comfortable giving it to me. My problem is that the pain is so intense that I need a pain medication to be able to live day to day. I cant do normal things such as walk my dog, go any places that require long periods of walking... etc. Its also worth noting that I have chosen not to recieve chemo, or radiation therapy. I cant afford it, plus I dont want to live the last year or so of my life too nauseous to be happy in the case that chemo does not work. Doctors do not want to do surgery, they say the risk of the cancer spreading is to great being that I am not receiving treatment. My question to you: What do I do? Tramadol is all my doctor is willing to prescribe and that does absolutely nothing for me. Ive been on a full range of NSAIDs in every safe dosage and I have had no relief. Am I going to have to suffer until I die? Or should I find a new doctor?

I was given Topron (Nifuroxazida) 400 mg by a pharmacist for severe diarrhea. I took the first dose about 3pm and it is now 10 pm. It hasn't seemed to make a difference at all. Can I go ahead and take another dose or do I have to wait a full 12 hours?

If I am addicted to opiates, will tramadol keep me from going into withdrawal and being "dope sick?"

doctor1 MD

I have joint pain and use hydocodone - 10 milliigrams each day only and tramadol , only because it was prescribed in 1985 and probably withdrawal may be severe, Celebrex helps a great deal but I may have kidney problems as a result. my non-regular...
