Why can't I call the office for a new prescription?

Why can't I call the office for a new prescription?

Prefer in person.: Very rarely is it appropriate to prescribe a new medication by phone. Keep in mind that in order to recommend a treatment plan, physicians have the obligation to evaluate (by asking questions and examining) the problem, make a diagnosis and then recommend a medication. This is almost impossible to do by phone, no matter how simple it may seem. ...Read more

There is a new app called doctor on demand, where for $40, you see a doctor live and get prescriptions, etc, what do u think about it? Would u join?

Ambivalent: There is nothing like a live face to face visit with a patient. Communication with all the senses.
Conscious and unconscious interactions.
I saw one of my patients in the hospital yesterday.
The patient appreciated the human form.
What if I was just a robot screen.
However maybe more patients would have access to health care and get live prescriptions. Excellent question. ...Read more

I can't find a doc in LA that is willing to help me with my Xanax (alprazolam) prescription that I've had for years. HELP! I've called over 50?

I can't find a doc in LA that is willing to help me with my Xanax (alprazolam) prescription that I've had for years. HELP! I've called over 50?

Physicians: You appear to be seeking a drug dealer. Not a physician. A real physician would advise you that it is time to treat your problem rather then to just numb up your feelings. Xanax (alprazolam) is not curative. It does not treat a problem. It is a temporary sedative. It is not for long term use. I would advise you to find a physician and not a drug dealer. ...Read more

Currently taking zolof, and am having adverse reactions such as a foggy, speedy feeling. I have been prescribed 50 mg of zolof. I have cut the prescription in half, to lessen the effects. I am currently on state medical assistance and have called the med

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your problem. I am sorry to hear that none of your calls have been returned. It is obvious that you are concerned about what is going on medically. Although each doctor prescribes differently, I normally start patients off with 25 mg of zoloft (sertraline) to help prevent side effects. After about a week, the dose is increased to 50mg per day. It is not uncommon to feel more jittery or anxious after starting the medication and this usually decreases fairly quickly. Although it is recommended that you don't change medication doses without input from your doctor, it sounds like you already made a number of attempts to make that contact.
Now, if you have a marked increase in energy, your thoughts are rapid, you can't sleep at night, you are talking and moving rapidly that could be another issue. Occassionally, use of an antidepressant can lead to mania or hypomania in a person who has an underlying predisposition for bipolar disorder. In that situation, I would advise my patient to stop the medication.
My input can't substitute for your doctor's but hopefully, this basic information is helpful. Take care. ...Read more

Have iritis. Was given 3 prescriptions: 2 drops and an ointment. One of the drops is a dilating drop called homatropine 2%.How long does dilation last?

Homatropine dilation: Dialtion with homatropine can last for several days. It is useful in iritis to prevent the iris from sticking to the natural crystalline lens in your eye. Be careful to wash your hands after using it to prevent dialtion occuring in your opposite eye if you should accidentally rub your other eye. It will also prevent you from seeing at near for several days too due to its cycloplegic effect. ...Read more

What should I know about the erectile prescription called muse (alprostadil)?

What should I know about the erectile prescription called muse (alprostadil)?

It works!: Muse stands for "medicated urethral system for erections" or something like that. It's a form of Alprostadil that's placed in the urethra in order to gain benefit (an erection) rather than injected as in caverject (alprostadil). Check out www. Muserx. Com, http://www. Drugs. Com/cdi/muse-suppository. Html, and http://www. Webmd. Com/erectile-dysfunction/muse-for-erection-problems for more info re muse. ...Read more
