What OTC allergy medications are safe to use while taking methadone daily for pain mgmt treatment? 140 MGS per day. Thank you.
2nd generation: Antihistamines are best, because they do not increase sedation, and don't have major interactions or effects on sedation. They are all pretty much OTC these days as well. The best, in my experience, is Loratadine (Claritin). Unless you have severe congestion, I would avoid the Claritin-D or pseudephedrine (Sudafed), since it likely will give a false positive amphetamine test on urinalysis. ...Read more
When would flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) be indicated for migraine treatment? Also, would it be daily dosing or a prn medication?
Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl): Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a muscle relaxant & would be used if the migranes were being triggered by muscle tension which is uncommon since most migraines are vascular in nature. I would think if prescribed for migraines it would be prn but there are better choices if you have true migraine headaches that could prevent or treat them. ...Read more

I'm really sorry: I can't answer this question because I don't know what "nasitis". This word is not found in medical dictionaries I consulted. Perhaps it is a foreign word or simply misspelled.

I repress emotion and continue to hurt my loved ones. What treatment options are available to me without insurance? Do I need to be on medication?
Repression: You should always start with an evaluation and counseling as forms of treatment. You may have some inner childhood experiences that might be making you repress. Medication should only be a last resort and I am pretty sure there is no medication that can help you unless some psychiatric pathology is found. ...Read more

Do you think my psychiatrist may hold certains medications from my treatment because she doesn't deal with certain distributors? Great dr but curious
Highly Unlikely: It is unethical for us to prescribe medicines just because those drug companies want us too. We are expected and almost always do treat with the most appropriate medication for each individual. Sometimes your insurance formulary may limit what you can afford to take, and there are some docs (like me) who won't use a brand new medicine unless it's been on the market a year or two, just to be safe. ...Read more
