take one tablet twice a day
I take Verapamil once a day 240 mg. Today I think I accidently took two around lunch time because I was very busy. What should I do now? ## Hello, Charlotte! How are you? Did you suffer any adverse effects? Doubling up could result in much lower blood pressure and heart rate than normal, which could put you in danger. Signs to watch for in the future include severe dizziness, drowsiness, sedation, somnolence and shallow breathing.

tab metaspan side effect
My wife prescrived Tab Metaspan 1 OD last two months, since then she suffering diohorea every after 2 - 3 days. ## Metaspan is the no one brand most imporant thing is that it is very small size that patient can take easily and all in active form ## This is an L-Methylfolate supplement, so yes, there is a chance it could be causing her diarrhea. Supplements aren't evaluated for side effects, like prescription medications are, but when you add something new to the body, developing diarrhea wouldn't really be too surprising. Is she on any other medications? Does she have any health conditions?

Comparison of tab concor 2.5 mg and Eritel AM 40 mg and related side effects
I am running 42 of age and have been a patient of hypertension. I have been taking tab Concor 2.5 mg on morning daily basis for last 12 years. My BP was absolutely fine and even some time I used to forget to take on ween ends. In last month March, my BP fluctuated max 150/110 in last month March 2014 without any change in my routine except was not well (having fever / cold) at that time.

daily free motion tablet
am not feel good for my motions i unable my motions at daily morning it gets four days for motion please help me.i need a tablet for free motion daily ## I am not getting my motions in the morning everyday. Please help me ## Rather than a medication, you need to discover what's causing the problem first. What types of foods do you eat? Do you eat a lot of vegetables? Do you eat enough fiber? How about water, how much do you drink each day? There are many things that could cause constipation and not everyone goes every day. Are you on any medications? Do you have any medical conditions?

Even On taking medicine my periods started
Hi I hav taken regestron tablet for 10 days. Actually I want to delay my periods for 10-12 days but on 11 day morning I feel my periods started. I am getting very low flow. Is there anything serious or side effect of the medicine ## I have to get my periods on 9th but I didn't get till now what to do? I want to get my periods please help me please ## Hello, Tanisha! How are you? There is no guarantee that taking it will delay your period. It works for some women, but not all. And no serious side effects, this is a form of progesterone, which is a hormone naturally produced by your body and vital to your menstrual cycle. Honey, how late are you? Is there a chance that you may be pregnant? Are you on any medications?

nusam 200 SIDE EFFECTS
sir i am 50 years SGPT is 77. doctor suggrst me to take nusam 200. what's its side effect? im sufferd from fatty liver ## i am a 30 years old lady having a problem of avascular nacrosis on my right hip. after getting pain i visited to the doctor and he suggested me for nusam 200. is there any side effect? ## Nusam is just a supplement, it's S-Adenosyl Methionine. It really doesn't have any proven medical use, other than that it's known to help with the pain from osteoarthritis. Thus, it's uncertain whether or not it will help with either of the mentioned conditions. If your doctor told you to take it, there shouldn't be any harm in trying it, but there's not guarantee that it will work to help you. Is there anything else I can help with?

bacteria viginosis and bladder infection
I was said to have bacteria vaginoesis and i was treated but it return with a bladder infection why is this and why was i given klion d 100 and amoxoline to use at the same time is this safe.... ## Hello, Kelly! How are you? I am so sorry about the problem that you're having. Bacterial vaginosis can be difficult to clear up, it does have a nasty habit of returning and the bacteria may have just spread to the bladder, as well. And yes, multiple antibiotics like this are often prescribed, in such cases where an infection is treatment resistant and spreading. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, vaginal irritation and discharge. Is there anything else I can help with?

How Long Will B12 Remain Usable Past The Expiration Date
How long will B12 remain usable past the expiration date? ## When it comes to vitamins I think it is best to not take any chances with the past expiration date if it's been more than a few weeks to a month. They MAY still be ok to take if they haven't been exposed to a high amount of heat or various other conditions outside of the bottle, however I am not a pharmacist or MD, so I cannot guarantee if it is in fact safe for you to consume. There is still a high likelihood that it lost some of its potency and MAY be ineffective to the point where it could harm your body by not doing it's job all the way, per say. I would recommend contacting your local pharmacy or doctor to assess if the quality of the drug still remains. They may have certain tools, charts, or methods for meas...
