Susten 100 tablets usage
4 Replies RSS
As My Period Started On 30th Day N Doctor Gave Me Susten 100 To Take It For 3 Days Which Will Be From 30th to 32nd Day. Will susten Help In Conceiving and Stop Periods ## From what I could gather, (Susten) Progesterone can help women conceive. Having a balanced progesterone level is critical to optimizing your fertility so you can get pregnant. Other patient reviews have also stated that Progesterone did cause a delay in their periods. I'd imagine that this is a common side effect though, due to the sudden fluctuation in hormone levels. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Progesterone Details I hope this helps! ## doctor suggest to take susten 100 mg tablet for 12 days my last lmp is 22/11/13. & i started this tablet on 08/12/13 is it helpful to me to conceive. ##...

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

PLEASE someone help me understand this new medication my doc just put me on. Never taken Adderall before and wanting to talk to those of you who have experienced it's effects. i have 20mg capsules and i get headaches and my heart can race just a little but not bothersome yet. Yes, I have doc and pharm answers but i want real answers from people who use this in their lives. THANK YOU GUYS! ## Hello: I think that it is GREAT to question any new Psych drug that is prescribed. I have had some very bad experiences. I have taken Adderall since 2005 and it has been fantastic. I too have racing heart beats, shaking and sometimes very euphoric. I would suggest that you don;t take adderall and drink coffee or any other caffeine type product as I think this makes the nervous feeling worse. You...

adderrall corepharma side efffects
2 Replies RSS
I have had ADHD all my life, and without thinking about 12 days ago went into Rite Aide and forgot to tell the pharmacist no Core, because I have tried one of my friend's in the past and didn't work when I had no insurance and no meds...since Adderral is so expensive I had no choice, but hey it didn't even work anyway. So, low and behold I get all the way out of the Pharmacy and boom its a script full of CorePharma. Is anyone else having hypersomnia, weakness, extreme fatigue, pounding headaches, dizziness, and irritability? I don't want to sound like a nut when I call my doctor to write a new script. I mean I am loosing time at work and falling asleep in class. It seriously sucks balls. I normally take either Brand 30 mg XR with Teva 10mg IR, now this month I have Teva ...

ive been taking hydrocodone 7 5 325 for awhile sometimes i get nausea and throw up at end its alittle blood could that b from an ulcer
2 Replies RSS
Im scared when that happens throwing up little blood at end . I have 2 herniated discs in lower back and degenarative neck pain that's why Dr presribed me the pain med. So why would there b blood when I get nauseous and throw up? Any answers? ## Hello, Sunshine! How are you? Yes, it is most likely from an ulcer or gastritis, both of which can result in stomach bleeding. It would be best to have it checked out, since it can get very painful and possibly life threatening, if left to worsen. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. How often does it happen? ## If you are having episodes of coughing up blood, it IS NOT from the acetaminophen and hydrocodone bit...

Wikoryl Tablet Use
11 Replies RSS
I want to know the use of vikoryl in dry sore throat ## Wikoryl contains the active ingredients: Paracetamol + Chlorpheniramine maleate + Phenylephrine hydrochloride. Some Wikoryl suspensions contain Caffeine as well. Looking at each individual ingredient: Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is a widely used over-the-counter pain reliever and a fever reducer. Chlorpheniramine relieves red, itchy, watery eyes; sneezing; itchy nose or throat; and runny nose caused by allergies, hay fever, and the common cold. Chlorpheniramine helps control the symptoms of cold or allergies but will not treat the cause of the symptoms or speed recovery. Phenylephrine is used to relieve nasal discomfort caused by colds, allergies, and hay fever. It is also used to relieve sinus congestion and pressure. Phenylephrin...

hydrocodone expiration
2 Replies RSS
I found hydrocodone 7.5 and it from 1997 is it dangerous to take because of the tylonel or ibuprofen in it?? ## Hi Jb, While there may be a lot of conflicting information around the topic of expired medication, a Harvard Medical School family health article states that, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. I don't know whether or not the drug you have happens to be one of these drugs from the study....

SETTING RECORD STRAIGHT!! how long after taking subutex can u take methadone
2 Replies RSS
Both subutex and suboxone will cause precipitated withdrawal. It is the bupe that connects to the receptors and kicks the methadone out. Naloxone is just an extra blocker!! I am a social worker at a clinic. Waiting at least 12 hours only if on low dose 20mg or less should b OK. But 24 preferred. ## If you take a little less then half of a 8mg subutext 15 hours ago is it safe to take 20mgs of methadone does anyone know! ! ! ## Why do people always minimize Naloxone? EMTs give the ODs Narcan, which brings the patient into withdrawal. Naltrexone (Vivitrol) has been used with chronic opiate addicts and alcoholics in several forms, pill, 30 day shot, implant. It is a VERY strong blocker and has many side effects. I have personal experience with this medication & know that it is not somet...
