i know that catapres is used for opiate detox( off label) so what happens if you take it with an opiate? or alcohol
I have no idea how this med even works. SL said it's a BP med? Before you mess with this stuff, review the letter, make the changes needed, print out the warnings on the meds you take, and get them faxed to her office asap. Aaron, there is a possibility you will get meds you need. Hang in there and give this a chance to work.
when I as in the hospital this past March I went and overdosed right in front of the staff. I was in I.C.U.. Many of you probably remember this, anyway, I had told the nurse it was to early to take my meds bur she screamed she was on a schedule! ( well she$%^) so am I! I was eating and the nurse wound up literally shoving them down my throat I wound up the old formula of oxycontin, which was 100 mgs, trazadone (deseryl, 15 mgs. of prosac and 10 mg of percocet, and 15 mg of valium. within 20 min I coded on them, I don't remember much However I know my husband was sitting next to me to verify what happened.
We did have to right out out an incident report, and we do have an attorney due to the fact I was admitted through my doctors office, so I did not go through the ER. I even said to my doctor's nurse if I could get glass of water so I can take my medications now since I only had 1/2 hr left before they were due anyway. So she was right there when I took them, and she noted it in my chart.
getting back to the cattaprass patch. I was put on it because I asked to be taken off some of these meds, and my blood pressure sky rocketed, and I Had to to a pack and change it once a week, they were 4 in a box, with 3 refills. And boy were they a lifesaver for me since I have always for the past 14 years had low blood pressure.
how ever this medication has a lot of risks with it, so please talk to someone with knowledge on these me.
hoping you a pain free day
PS Is it me or does everyones p.c. underlines the medication in red as if it were spelled wrong? Just wondering since the in a drug site! LOL
