Mixing versus centrifuging
3 Replies RSS
The difference between cheap/inexpensive 10/325 mixing and the process of centrifuging determines the strength of a 10/325. To take 10 milligrams of codeine and 325 milligrams of acetaminophen and mix them together only produces acetaminophen and codeine. Centrifuging coaleses and bonds the ingradients together to make a much more robust and potent medication. So, the difference is coalescing rather than mixing. My experience is the Qualitest exhibit qualities consistent with centrifuging ## Hi Jim, Thanks for sharing this info on centrifuging. I would've never thought of this as a way to increase the efficacy of two or more substances. But it does make sense in that there would be less binders/fillers from taking 1 tablet with everything fused together, as opposed to multiple table...

How long one can use URIMAX 0.4
55 Replies RSS
I am taking URIMAX0.4 for last 3 years continuously.I find it very useful. But I am not getting answer to my question that how long one can take it. After how much time I will have to increase the dose? Will it create any serious problem due to prolonged use? I am of 62 years. I am suffering from BPH since 2002. ## Urimax contains the active ingredient Tamsulosin, it is used to treat the symptoms associated with BPH, such as the frequent urge to urinate. As to how long it is used, that really depends on your condition, since most cases are usually ongoing. Your doctor should be monitoring you to make sure it is still needed, according to any change in your condition. A dosage increase would also depend on that. There is no definite way to say it will need to be increased after any certa...

Viibryd Weight Gain
21 Replies RSS
I originally got on the web today to research how to loose weight gained from medication. I have been on Viibryd for 6 months for Major Depressive disorder. I currently take 40 mg. It should be noted taking Viibryd has changed me from a size 0 to size 6. 20lbs. My appetite at times especially in the evening is RAVENOUS. I am embarrassed by how much I can eat and not be full. I have been nonchalant about a few pounds here and there but it devestated me yesterday when i caught a glimpse of CELLULITE on my backside. Nothing else has changed in my medicines or routine. I have always been slim. I have compassion for any who have been trying to figure out if Viibryd is causing their body to change physically. I also will comment on other side effects in another post. My memory is compromised ...

started on seroquel for alcohol addiction
2 Replies RSS
I was 1st prescribed seroquel when I entered treatment for alcohol addiction, anxiety, and depression. I am proud to say I am now 5-1/5 years sober and wondering if or why I still need to be on this medicine. I take 100mg @ night along w/ 50mg of Zoloft. My biggest concern is if I will ever get to sleep w/o aid ## If you've been taking them for years, actually even if you've just been taking one of them for years, then the best way to stop taking them would be to do a slow taper. Otherwise, they tend to cause rebound effects, so you may experience symptoms such as severe depression, insomnia, irritability and etc. Learn more Seroquel details here. Learn more Zoloft details here. If you do it that way, then there will most likely be a brief period of insomnia and some other mild ...

How bad is it , I don’t have any major illness, but my parents have BP, sugar, Will I lose weight, hair, any health problem, colour, pimples, eyes problem, and Skin problem? or any such problem will come up. pls let know ## Hello, Vaman! How are you? My first question, has your doctor prescribed this and told you to take it? This is really intended to help men with erectile dysfunction, it is not going to actual do much for women to increase your libido. It can be used to treat some other health conditions, but should only be taken if your doctor has told you that you shoul...

TRUTH ABOUT PAIN MANGEMENT AND WHY YOU CANNOT GET OPIATES
12 Replies RSS
I SEE MOST POST ON HERE ASKING FOR SOMEONE TO FILL A CERTAIN DRUG THEY NEED. WELL TIMES ARE CHANGING FOR MORE THAN 1 REASON. IT IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ANY DOCTOR THAT WILL TAKE A NEW PATIENT AND PRESCRIBE ANY ANY ANY, CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE. THANKS TO DEA, WAR ON DRUGS IS NOW IN PAIN MANAGEMENT. ALSO INSURANCE COMPANIES AND A RECENT STUDY, THAT SHOWED A PATIENT MAY DIE IN THEIR SLEEP IF GIVEN OVER A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TABS OF OPIATES IN A DAY. THIS IS A POOR EXAMPLE OF A STUDY. COULD BE 4 MG OR 1000 MG THAT IS WHY YOU NOW SEE ALL THE INSURANCE COMPANIES NOW PUTTING CAPS ON THE AMOUNT THEY WILL ALLOW YOU TO HAVE. THEY I GUESS ARE NOW PLAYING DOCTOR. THEY ARE MAKING IT HARDER AND MORE WORK FOR DOCS TO EVEN WANT TO PRESCRIBE CERTAIN MEDICATIONS. I HAVE BLUE CROSS AND MEDICARE AND NEVER...

gabapentin 100mg capsule. Nerve pain and Anxiety
3 Replies RSS
The Dr. Thought this would help with my nerve pain and anxiety I have been taking it for 3 weeks and have gained 6 pounds and it has affected my legg strength and how much I can walk should I quit taking it. I am a 68 year old woman. ## Hi Bev, Sorry to hear about the Gabapentin not working as intented. But I wouldn't stop taking it without talking to your doctor first. According to NIH.gov, if you were to suddenly stop taking it, you may experience withdrawal symptoms (such as anxiety, insomnia, pain, nausea, sweating, etc.) as a result of not tapering. For these reasons it's probably best to work with your doctor on gradually decreasing the dose over an allotted period of time (NIH recommends at least a week). I hope this helps! ## David thank you for your input but I already ...

Generic Norco m367 10/325
69 Replies RSS
Is crap. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain releif. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325 ? ## Recently went to refill my norco script and they gave me M367 10/325 instead of the yellow 10/325. One of the yellow pills would last 4 hours. With the m367 I have to take 3 at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Let me know if any of you have encountered the same with M367 10/325. Thank you ## I'm sure there are others that have had similar problems, there can be some slight fluctuations from one generic medication to another, so not all of them work well for everyone that tries them. For example, I can take this same tablet and it really hits me very hard, after taking just one, I have good pain relief and am pretty much tired and groggy for most of the day. You ...

penicillin cream
3 Replies RSS
Can i apply for RSS. I had this for months.penicillin cream.????? ## Hi jerry, What is it that you mean by applying for "RSS"? I'm sure you don't mean "Really Simple Syndication (RSS)" that websites use to feed headlines and news flashes, but I've never heard of the term/abbreviation being used in medical context... By the way, if your Penicillin cream really is "months old" and you're questioning whether it's still ok to take - an accurate answer would depend upon how it was stored, and whether it already expired. If that is the case and it is expired, then I think your best bet would probably be to get a new prescription, since older antibiotics (with less efficacy) may not fully eradicate a bacterial infection; potentially leading to antibi...
