What is ambien? what is xanex and what happens if you take vicodin for like no reason?
I was reading on some things and i saw ambien and xanex nd was wondering what is was.
The vicodin on the other hand was brought up by this guy a few days ago, i walked in to a cvs at midnight and he asked me if i wanted to buy some vicodin aparently they were his pregnant girlfriends but i said no way, he then told you you could get messed up? or something so i was wondering why he was trying to sell them to me and what can vicodin do?
Ambien is a sleep medication. Xanex is for people that have anxiety.
Vicoden is a pain killer. My dentist prescribed me some for my tooth pain. Sometimes they are prescribed to people that have very sore backs or cramps. Vicoden doesn’t really get me “messed up”. It makes me kind of hyper. Then for some people it makes them sleepy. So it is different for everyone.
I would not take any medication from a stranger. Only from a doctor.
Are there any side effects of taking 50mg of zoloft and 2 vicodin?
I am on a prescription of 50mg Zoloft that I took at like 2:30 in the afternoon. I started getting a really bad head ache so I took 2 vicodin (the little blue ones) starting at 9 and spread out between 4 hours. Are there going to be any side effects I should really be worried about? Call me stupid but I’ve taken xanex and vicodin before and I called the doctor and they said it wouldn’t do anything because they are for 2 different purposes.
so let me get this straight… you’ve asked a qualified medical practitioner who said that it was OK but you now want the definitive answer from… who? A teenager on Y!A with no qualifications who *obviously* knows better than any doctor?
In this case it would appear that the adjective you used to describe yourself is entirely understated and inadequate.
With every drug comes a leaflet describing the side effects, dosage and what other drugs it shouldn’t be combined with. I suggest you read it. Preferably *before* taking the medicine.
EDIT: it’s not me who mixed two drugs without knowing what the possible consequences would be. You must go through every day being continually amazed that you’re still alive.
It’s not me who has ignored the information available with every drug and instead sought the advice of any unqualified person on here who cares to answer.
Just because two drugs are used to treat two different problems doesn’t mean they can’t or won’t interract causing unpleasant side-effects.
Can you get a felony for having prescription pills in your system?
My boyfriend took one xanex and one vicodin a little over a month ago and his probation officer wants to do a hair test. Will the pills even show up since it’s such a small dose and if so, can he receive a felony?
If he’s on probation the dosage doesn’t matter. The issue isn’t that the drugs were prescription, but that they’re in you boyfriend’s system. I’m pretty sure that’s a violation of his probation conditions.
Can you buy adderall over the counter in Chile without a prescription?
I know in mexico you can buy prescription drugs over the counter. VERY EASILY. like vicodin and xanex.
In chile are the laws similar? or do you need a prescription to buy adderoll, and other meds.?
It depends of each drug. If you are looking for aspirins, you can just order them over the counter.
It’s different for psychotropics drugs (like Adderall, Vicodine, Ritalin). You need to deliver the prescription to the drug store, which is known as “Receta Retenida” (retained prescription), in order to be able to buy that drug. This medicines are clearly marked with a green star on the box.
A similar protocol is applied to antibiotics, they aren’t sold without prescription.
Can’t swallow pills, is it okay to chew?
I hate the fact that I can’t swallow pills. Weather its vicodin, tylenol, or xanex, or norcos. So i either dissolve in water and drink it which is bitter as hell, or crush it and take it as a powder. I HATE it…
Im not sure if these pills are on time release, and if it really matters that much?
Please dont suggest ways of swallowing, because I just can’t do it. I just want to know if its completley okay to do this for my pains.
Most pills can be crushed or chewed, and those that can’t be are ALWAYS clearly labeled on the box with the phrase “Do Not Crush; Pill Must Be Swallowed Whole” or something to that effect. Always double check with your doctor when he/she writes the prescription, and then again with your pharmacist when you get it filled (doctors make mistakes, and so do pharmacists, but it’s not often that both will make the same mistake in the same instance). Always follow the directions provided by the pharmacist when taking medications and clear up any uncertainties before you begin to taking it (better yet, before you leave the pharmacy). The people who designed and manufactured the pill generally know a little more about its properties than random people on answers, and pharmacists are trained to convey those properties in a meaningful way to the public. So be smart and follow directions.

How exactly do drugs effect unborn children?
I have a friend that is 3 months pregnant. For the first two minths, she was tryin to hide it so she was taking hydroxycut lke crazy. Now I come to find out that she has also been abusing xanex, vicodin, and klonopins (I’ve seen her messed up on these drugs, but I was unaware she was pregnant). She also drinks (alcoholism runs in her family), and smokes marijuana. I’m just worried about the health of the baby once it comes out, as I am trying to be a good person about this. I try giving her advice but I’m not too sure what to tell her about the health of the baby at this point, but I am concerned. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
What happens is that these drugs affect the developing fetus and impair the ability of the fetus to grow to the best tht it can, as nutrition is blocks or deflected
Opinions on hydrocodine/vicodin?
I would like your opinion on this subject. I have been a waitress for 8 years and I have a lot of back and leg pain from work. I had some hydrocodones left over from a broken toe and i found when i take them when i get home from work, it helps me be able to take care of the housework, laundry, cooking, ect.
I work very hard, i am married with 1 child and 1 stepchild and i waitress 5-6 days a week(anyone who has waited tables i a large, fast-paced restaurant knows how hard it can be on your body), i go to college, and I take care of all the housework and I find that when I take hydros, they help with all the back pain i have and help me get more done.
I dont take them all the time, maybe a couple times a week but i have explained this to my doctor, she wont give me any. I dont think i am abusing them. i dont see the difference in taking hydros than in people who take xanex for stress or anti-depressants. how do all these people i know who arent even in pain get them and how do i
BEING ON YOUR FEET ALL DAY IS TOUGH. I SUGGEST YOU BUY SOME COMFORTABLE SHOES, LIKE ROCKPORT FOR WALKING, AND MAYBE INVEST IN AN ABDOMINAL BELT FOR YOUR BACK.
BACK EXERCISES WILL HELP A LOT. NARCOTIC DRUGS WILL NOT. DOCTORS KNOW THERE IS NO REASON FOR MORE DRUGS, THAT’S WHY THEY WON’T PRESCRIBE.
My grandma is having trouble with her diabetes. Help?
She is 63 years old, and a type 2 diabetic. For the past day or so, her blood sugar has dipped into the 40’s, when it’s usually in the 130’s. The medicine she’s been taking for it is Duetact(100mg), which I think is in the same family as Actos. About 2 weeks ago, she had major abdominal surgery(removing infected hernia mesh) and has been on a slow but steady recovery. The new drugs she’s on for that are Vicodin, Xanex, and Clindamycin(an antibiotic)
We’re trying all the usual things to get her numbers up, like drinking juice and soda and eating yogurt or cookies, but it just spikes and then falls again. She’s not dumb. She’s been an LPN for 44 years, and deals with this sort of thing all the time in nursing homes. She knows this kind of thing isn’t a good way to get the blood sugar normal, it’s just a quick fix. But when it comes to her own health, she’s never up to par with it.
So here’s some other bits of info if it helps get a good answer.
She’s been diabetic for 5 years, being type 2 for around 3.
She’s had hypertension for 20 years(taking a whole mess of pills for that, names I can’t remember now)
She’s obese, weighing just under 300lbs.(but she’s been losing it, having lost 50lbs since December). Her diet is not great. Yes, she will eat a salad and grilled white meat, but tops it off with half a bag of oreo’s. My mom and I cannot get it through her head she needs to eat better.
She currently has edema in her legs, with one being 3x bigger than normal.
She’s had a history with congestive heart failure.
She used to take an injection drug called Byetta, but her doctor took her off it about 4 months ago.
She’ll make up excuses to why her blood sugar is so low, like saying the meter is broken. I tested my own blood twice, since I’m not diabetic, and both times it was a normal number.
So, that’s really all I can think of at the moment. Forgive me if I didn’t say enough, but she really needs help. It’s at the point where she’s too scared to go to sleep, even the Xanex isn’t helping. I know you’re probably thinking “Uh…go to the hospital”, but the thing is, working in health care doesn’t always equal good benefits. She doesn’t get ANY short term disability from work, and her insurance is very spotty, so this is the main factor why she doesn’t want to go to the ER.
So, what could be the reason she’s going hypoglycemic? What’s the best way to get her numbers back up? Could the new drugs be playing a part? Is her diabetes medicine too high? And if worse comes to worse, should we go to the ER?
DUETACT® (pioglitazone hydrochloride and glimepiride) tablets contain two oral antihyperglycemic agents used in the management of type 2 diabetes: pioglitazone hydrochloride and glimepiride. The concomitant use of pioglitazone and a sulfonylurea, the class of drugs that includes glimepiride, has been previously approved based on clinical trials in patients with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on a sulfonylurea.
As you will notice from the above Glimepiride is paired with the pioglitazone hydrochloride . The Glimepiride will cause the Lows That your grandma is experiencing.
•Thiazolidinediones, including pioglitazone, which is a component of DUETACT, cause or exacerbate congestive heart failure in some patients (see WARNINGS, Pioglitazone hydrochloride). After initiation of DUETACT, observe patients carefully for signs and symptoms of heart failure (including excessive, rapid weight gain, dyspnea, and/or edema).
pioglitazone hydrochloride is a very dangerous drug.
I would start back on Metformin and if numbers aren’t good add the Glimepiride.
Now you know .
