Is it safe to take these all together?
I'm trying to find out if I have boils without going to the drs. They are sore bumps with fluid inside of them on my fingers. I just had one on my arm that I caught on something and it broke open. They are very sore. I have lupus and fibromyalgia. Thank you.
Don't handle busy, large crowds well at all. Unfamiliar social settings rapidly increase my anxiety level. When arguing with my spouse, or anyone else, I become highly anxious, sometimes to the point of outward fits of rage. When I feel myself going into a fit of rage, many times I cannot control myself. In my rage fits I always completely disregard my own safety regardless of the implied harm to myself others in my vicinity.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Is taking 1.5 or 2 mg lorazepam while on suboxone dangerous, suboxone is being used for opaite dependence and pain and lorazepam is used for anxiety
I am taking about 20 to 22 MG of suboxone a day but I also take 2 mg of Lorazepam a day for anxiety, is it dangerous to do so. I do not exceed the doses mentioned at all.
- Can flexiral withdraw cause angina? also notice when it's time for a bowel movement
