round orange pill adderall with 28 and crescent moon
that pill is manufactured by actavis pharmaceuticals. it is indeed a 30 mg adderal IR. It is in our drug database, Micromedex-pill identification. Hope this helps ## My Doctor started prescribing 30Mg. Adderall for me in June ('14); as opposed to the 20's I'd been taking for about 10 years. The first prescription was a large thinner pill with an hOh on one side and was cross scored on the other, which seemed to work ok. Yesterday the pharmacy gave me (what I'm assuming after considerable research) is "Actavis 30 Mg.", round, peach colored, smaller in diameter and slightly thicker, a crescent imprint by a 28. The other side is a single score, with indents scored in the crossing position. They don't seem to be working. I was wondering if anyone else that's ...

oxycodone shortage 10mg
I received a call that my oxycodone was ready for pick up at Rite Aid and once I got there the pharm tech had told me that it was out of stock and there wasn't anything they could do or substitute it with when I had asked, "I've taken this medication for years and never had this happen, do you know when you'll be in stock?" The pharm tech replied, "I don't know when they will come in, it usually takes at least two weeks anyway and there isn't anything I can do for you, you can have your prescription back" and gave me my prescription and told me to try elsewhere because she was too busy to call other Rite Aids. I was shocked. I took my prescription to Walgreens and they were also out of stock but in between customers the pharm tech called all Walgreens...

expried big time
can I still get prego if my jadelle has been expired for 7 years and still in my arm ## Yes, pregnancy is a possibility. Once the Jadelle has expired, it is no longer releasing the hormone required to prevent ovulation. Why has it not been removed? Are you using any other methods of contraception? ## My rod has been expire for close to 2 months n still in my arm how long will it take for me to get pregnant

jadelle contreception side effects
has any had the jadelle implant and had bad side effects i got it done a weeks ago and have started light bleeding over the last few days and it wont go away as well as my skin braking out ## These are actually some of the normal side effects for any hormonal method of contraception. It can continue for several months, even the breakthrough bleeding. Weren't you warned about such side effects, when you were discussing having the procedure? You may also experience weight gain, hair loss, anxiety and dizziness. You can read more about the possible side effects here: It says they can last for up to 3 months. ## do ladies go skinny with jadelle also? ## This will be my first month of having the Jadelle implant. In december 2010, had the IUD removed, went on Depo till Feb 24th had the im...

medicine to start my period as soon..
hi Doctor.., i m sanju 24 yrs old. N my period is too late actually my period date 15 oct but still dont come so pls can u advise me what a medicine i will have to take for regular period. Or any home made solution plz advice.. ## Hi sanju, I am not a Doctor but I will do my best to provide helpful information. It is not harmful to not have your period at the same time every month. If you experience irregularity in your menstrual cycle for an extended period of time, then you may want to start supplementing with certain herbs or medications. Your menstrual cycle, or "period" may become irregular due to stress or certain foods in your diet that disrupt your hormones. According to Women's health source, a diet that is low in fiber and high in saturated fats can cause irregular...

Severe headache
I was warned about the headaches as side effecyts which would disappear with pain The headaches have been far to severe to endure and I'm no wimp!! Anyone else encounter these. ## They don't disappear for everyone and, for some people, they do tend to be very severe. Have you tried anything for the headaches? Learn more Isosorbide information here. Have you gotten any advice from your doctor on what you can do for the headaches? ## I had the headaches and I am nauseated with this pill. Tylenol was no help at all and it made me vomit.. I am taking motrin now, because it doesn't make me vomit. I am on my third day of extended release. Have any of you found that the pain eventually goes away? ## I get such severe headaches ,they are so disabilitating that I can't do anythin...

side effects of Udiliv 300 and cremadiet
recently i was diagnoised with fatty liver and gall stones. The doctor prescribed Udiviliv 300 (1 in morning and one at night, after meals) and Cremadiet (2 spoons at bedtime). i am not sure whether its because of the medicines but i have started experiencing chest pain and pain in my throat and nose. Please advise? ## Have you contacted your doctor, yet? Chest pain is not something you should ignore, you should report it to your doctor immediately, so they can check and determine if it is indeed caused by a medication or if it is something more serious. Udiliv contains the active ingredient Ursodiol, it is a bile acid that is frequently used to help dissolve gall stones. Learn more: Cremadiet contains Sodium and Ispaghula Husks, it is used to increase fiber in your body and make sure y...

naltrexone/alcohol
i have been taking naltrexone for a month now to help me quit getting drunk on white wine. My pharmacist said i shouldn`t drink any alcohol while taking this drug but would like to know if i went out on a weekend, could i drink a glass of wine or two while taking naltrexone? Would there be any severe side effects? ## Wouldn't that be defeating the purpose of why you wanted to start taking it? Not only is it risky to consume alcohol with any medication, but if you wanted to stop drinking, it really makes little sense to go right back to it. Have you consulted your doctor? Have you undergone any counseling for this issue? ## Co: Your pharmacist does not understand the way naltrexone works or what its purpose is. Naltrexone works by the principal of "pharmacological extinction"...

Adderal manufactured by Teva not working
I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is rediculous and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount fo medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly lo...
