itchy medicine
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Contrave for three weeks and have developed itching on the insides of my hands and the bottoms of my feet. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Arlie! How are you? Do you have a rash, or just the itching? Contrave has been known to cause a rash as a side effect, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and insomnia. Are you on any other medications? The itching could be due to a circulation problem. ## No rash. No other meds. Nothing new besides the Contrave.

ilvitrim suspension used incorrectly
1 Reply RSS
Hiv+ my 2yr old found a bottle of iviltrim suspension, half 50ml he drank it, I gave him glass of fresh milk .... This happened an hour ago. Please help though he tested negative..... I'm using it for my 10 week old little girl. ## Hello, Monza! How are you? The FDA lists Ilvitrim as an antibiotic that is used to treat or prevent bacterial infections, one doesn't have to be HIV positive to take it. Thus, there are no worries there. However, it can cause side effects, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. So having taken so much at once, he could end up ill and dehydrated, so it would be best to consult his doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

can i take prothiaden with mersyndol
1 Reply RSS
Can i take prothiaden and mersyndol together? ## Hello, Lin! How are you? These shouldn't be taken together, unless your doctor has instructed you to take them both. The Doxylamine, Codeine and Dosulepin can all increase sedation, which risks lowered heart rate, lowered blood pressure and this could potentially result in a coma and be fatal. As listed by the FDA, the Mersyndol 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. The Prothiaden may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

TEVA 30mg vs AUROBINDO PHARM Amphetamine Salts (Adderall)
40 Replies RSS
For several years I've taken TEVA 30mg Amphetamine Salts 2x daily with consistent positive relief. Focus and a feeling that I could have a productive day gave me a reason to get out of bed. On 8/21/2014 all that changed to nervous anxiety filled days staying home. What caused the dramatic change quickly became clear. The generic Adderall produced by AUROBINO PHARM which my regular CVS Pharmacy filled my RX with on 8/21 was less than effective it was exasperating the very symptoms for which it was prescribed. FDA is an ineffective bureaucracy controlled by lobbyists for foreign and domestic pharmaceutical companies making huge profits in generic drugs at the expense of the health and quality of life of others. The manufacturing of inferior or possibly harmful medications by greedy co...

I have been going to a methadone clinic for approximately 8 years. My current dose is 120 mg. but; a I my need to increase my dose toI prefer to go to a DR. to obtain a methadone RX for 120 - 160 40 mg. pills. ## hey buddy I'm currently being rxd 150mgs of methadone per day for severe pain from a motocross accident 5 years ago. I've been taking methadone for a couple years and im 21 years old now, i have a great doctor and she does anything she can 2 help me but she has told me I'm very lucky countless times because 99% of doctors refuse to script methadone for pain and thats not good news for you, best bet stay at the clinic, sorry 2 let you down ## also you can only get the 40s at a clinic so if you somehow do find a doctor 2 script the methadone it will be 10mg pills, i g...

Left coronary angiography and right coronary angiography. Coronary arteries: the coronary circulation is right dominant. Left main: No evidence of obstructive disease. LAD: lARGE. No evidence of obstructive disease. Left circumflex: Medium-large. Mild luminal irregularities. Right coronary: Moderate-sized. Mild luminal irregularities.

Aspirin with metformin
1 Reply RSS
I started taking 1/2 of 500 mg metforim & 325 mg aspirin now my blood seems it's thicker & barely bleeds it starts clotting. When took 81 mg aspirin it starting bleeding & run. ## Hello, Susie! How are you? If you're concerned about your clotting factor, you should have it checked out by your doctor. However, you should be made aware that it can change, depending on your diet, activity levels, fluid intake and etc. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Metformin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, stomach pain and hypoglycemia. Aspirin is an NSAID that is also used for blood thinning. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Ms Contin with Norco vs Oxycodone for back surgery
2 Replies RSS
I am having a second back surgery. The first time I was prescribed 10 mg Oxycodone Immediate REL Tabs every 4 hours. This time I am prescribed MS Contin 30 mg every 12 hours plus my regular medication of Norco 10-325 every 6 hours. Which is stronger the Oxycodone without the Norco or the MS Contin with Norco for surgical back pain relief. I regularly take on a daily basis Norco 10-325 every six hours prn, Metaxalone 800 mg 3x per day and Gabapentin 800 mg 3x per day. I will continue my regular prescriptions. Please advise which will be the best for back surgery pain relief. ## Hello, Gary! How are you? Overall, the MS Contin with added Norco is stronger, but only if the Norco is figured in. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit f...

white xanax gg 249
77 Replies RSS
how can u tell if gg249 are fake ## Based on the description and imprint, according to our U.S. prescription drug resources, this is a 2mgs Alprazolam tablet, the active ingredient in Xanax. I've not heard of any fake tablets being on the market with this marking. It is more common to get tablets that you are told are one thing and then find out you've been given something else. Where were they obtained? ## i have a perscription for them and i get them from an online pharmacy whos name should be widely known as a rip off, not only did they short me by two pills but they didnt even provide me with sleep aid or anxiety relief. ## Xanax (alprazolam) especially the 2mg bars have been bogus, fake and sold online for years. I even had a shipment of this come to a Walmart Pharmacy once...

which other infections can use doxytet pills
1 Reply RSS
well got a vaginal infection where there is some brownish discharge nd some pains,went to clinic nd they gave me doxytet will it help coz I started taking it lst friday bt the discharge is still coming? ## Hello, Lindoh! How are you doing? Has there been any improvement, yet? It may not have been the right antibiotic to treat it, or it may not have been strong enough. Alternatively, antibiotics can also cause yeast infections, as side effects. Do you also have itching of the vaginal area? Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.
