What hcpcs code do I use for Bupivacaine(marcaine) injection?
We file our claims electronically through WebMD. Although I haven't found any insurance company that pays seperately for S0020(Marcaine injection) most of them will accept the claim through the clearinghouse and then deny the line item on the claim for marcaine. However, Medicare claims with this code will not even get through the clearinghouse. I've been taught that you bill all insurance companies the same. So in this situation I really don't know what to do. Either find a suitable code for Marcaine or stop billing for it all together and my doctor will not go for that. Help!
The Bupivacaine is not given via an infusion pump, it's drawn together with lidocaine and kenalog and given as an injection into a joint. Would you still use the J7799 for injection of Bupivacaine?

  S0020 is not valid for Medicare.
You will have to use J7799 with a description of the drug.

Cetirizine hydrochloride (zyrtec) from online pharmacy?
hi...i used an online pharmacy to buy 180 10 mg cetirizine hydrochloride pills (generic zyrtec...for allergies)...normally they are oval but the ones that came in the mail are round and unmarked. they came packaged in little boxes labeled cetirizine hydrochloride and it has all the info on the boxes and also the bubble packs but ive never seen them round and unmarked before. i just want to make sure that i didnt get ripped off and that they are in fact 10 mg of cetirizine hydrochloride. any help is appreciated. thanks!

  generics never look like the brand name pills.

if you are concerned, call or email the pharmacy and double check that you got the right med, but if the package has good labeling then you should be ok

  Why are you asking this? If you are working for a legitimate company making diltiazem, the chemists would know what to do.
If you're working for a less than legitimate company.....

Phentermine Hydrochloride online?
What is the best that you have used? or does anyone know of a website where I can get Phentermine hydrochloride without a perscription. I want the tablets not capsules. My sister was buying them from sisterspharmacy.com and now they do not have them.

  Your NOT going to find anything that will remove that staining.

Zoom Whitening, is the best system out there, that i have seen. I perform the Zoom Whitening Treatment in my office. Plain and simple it wont whiten Tetracycline stains. Nothing will.... Not even, Internal Bleaching. I've seen it (internal bleaching by the doctors) and done it (the Zoom treatment).. and its just NOT going to happen.

what are lincomycin hydrochloride and lidocaine hydrochloride gel use for?
miao
02/14/06
Reply
  Lincomycin hydrochloride is mainly used for fighting respiratory tract and soft tissue infections.

there's another type: It is indicated for the infections due to Staphylococcus,Streptococcus Pneumococcus and anaerobes. It may cause enteritis of pseudo-menbrane after prolonged administration. Patients with hepatic insufficiency should use prudently.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is used as a pain reliever. Lidocaine (lignocaine) belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. Lidocaine acts to block temporarily the pathway of pain impulses along nerve fibres. This relieves or prevents pain in the area where it has been injected. This preparation is injected to provide local anaesthesia for minor procedures, such as dental surgery.


you can check out these websites. it's good. good luck!
.whatever.

pseudoephedrine hydrochloride?
I failed a drug test for meth-amphetamine. I don't do drugs, so I was wondering if pseudoephedrine hydrochloride contained some type of ingredient to cause this. I took Sudafed 12 hour sinus relief.

Dental Anesthetic Question?
I took a 10 panel hair test to prove that I was on a prescribed medication and the test came back positive for that medication but it also came back positive for cocaine. I DO NOT DO DRUGS. I have been going to the dentist weekly (sometimes twice a week) from January 2011-last week and getting the following injections (multiple injections each week) of 2%Lidocaine with epinephrine 1:100,000 0.5% Marcaine (Bupivacaine HCl with 1:200,000 epinepheine) and Diflunisal 500mg (NSAID) I have a letter proving the above but the MRO wants proof that these could produce a positive cocaine result. They will accept information from an AMA journal article or qualified physician.

Is Pramoxine hydrochloride the same as hydrocortisone acetate?
I used hydrocortisone for relief of some eczema around my mouth and it worked fine. I was wondering if Pramoxine hydrochloride is the same thing? I did some searching and they both show up together.

Betaine Hydrochloride (HCL) ok during pregnancy?
I am having problems digesting my food. I am 5 months pregnant. My Dr. told me to take Betaine hydrochloride and pepsin with my meals to help me digest (HCL). Is this safe during pregnancy? My Dr says it is, but I see conflicting reports on the web.

  What you are seeing on the web is talking about exposure to vapors of hydrochloric acid, not about taking pills with a meal. Sort of like saying you can't drink from the municipal water supply because it is treated with chlorine when we know that chlorine gas is poison, especially to babies.

However, if you are still concerned, there are alternatives. You can take digestive bitters (Chamomile, Chickory, Gentian or a product called Swedish Bitters) at the start of a meal to increase your production of HCL. Also very helpful to sip vinegar water with meals. Mix 2-3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar and equal amount of honey in a little hot water. After it's dissolved, add cool water until it tastes pleasant.

Any difference between different types of diphenhydramine hydrochloride?
I go through quite a bit of benadryl to deal with allergies. Is there any reason why I shouldn't start buying the cheap, generic over-the-counter sleep aids containing the same dose (25mg) of diphenhydramine hydrochloride as benadryl?

  If you live in the United States then the FDA should ensure that any product advertised as containing 25mg dephenhydramine HCL will be the same as benadryl (the pink ones). If you take the green ones it'll have additional ingredients as well.

Can we give nalaxone to a twins whom their mother got an overdose of spinal local anesthesia ?
A mother was given spinal anesthesia (Marcarine heavy 0.5 (Bupivacaine)) + fentanyl 25 mcg on a cesarean delivery and the babies were premature (less than 36 weeks). They were born on 15-FEB-2007 & today (15-April-2007) there age is 60 days. Can we give them Nalaxone (Narcan) to reduce the effect of opioids if we doubt that this has made them the respiratory depression. The babies (twins-non identical-female&Male) are facing a respiratory depression & they are on intubation. Will the Nalaxone help in removing the effect of the anesthesia overdoe ?
We are really not sure that this is an overdoes. This is only an assumption!

  The amount of fentanyl that reaches the mother's systemic circulation from a spinal anesthetic is extremely low. 25mcg is a small dose, even if it was given directly i.v. (which it wasn't). Fentanyl is not your problem.

I seriously doubt that the babies' respiratory problems are related to the fentanyl. It is far more likely that they suffer from immature lungs.

The proper treartment would have been to give the babies betamethasone before delivery, and surfactant immediately after delivery. It is too late for that now.

The babies need intensive care by a neonatologist. Narcan is not going to help them, and may cause problems (it is associated with pulmonary edema in some cases).

  More is not always better, and it's true in this case. If you are prescribed 1 a day then it's not safe to take more.
