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...

80 mg oxy p
Im from toronto n got a 80mg green oxy with 80 on one side and a sigle p on othet! If this a real 80? ## need pain meds for herniated disk ## Hi Frnk, The closest match I've been able to locate is Oxycontin (80 mg). It is a round green pill with the imprint '80' on one side and 'OP' on the other. Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Oxycontin; Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from poppy-derived thebaine. It is a narcotic analgesic generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain. It is manufactured by Purdue Pharma and has a National Drug Code of 59011-0480. Maybe the O on your pill got smudged off? Does it look as if it has been tampered with? You can learn more about this drug on the page for OxyContin Details ## It is real. Its a new Cana...

I did feel the relief from the Hydro also ## I took 4mg of suboxone today @6am & 4mg @12pm. How long till I can take my usual 30mg roxis? I usually take 10-14 30mg roxi/day (2-3 at a time) for severe chronic migraines but ran out for 2 days, hence the subs on 2nd day. But I will get my roxis @4pm.

Puffy eyes on amitryptlyine
I was prescribed 10mg amitryptilyine for migraine prevention. It seems to be helping with the migraines, however, I feel very tired all day and my eyes have bags under them and feel so tired all the time. It has been well over a month since I've started this and the side effects do not seem to be subsiding. Any suggestions?? I love the fact I'm not having the migraines but the side effects I can't handle much longer. ## Hello! How are you? This medication is a tricyclic antidepressant and it can cause REM onset latency, which means you don't enter the REM phase of sleep as fast as normal and spend less time in it than normal, so your sleep isn't as restful. That's likely why you feel so tired and have the bags under your eyes. I found that they improved about 6 w...

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

how to find a doctor prescribe xanax near gainesville fl
I have been taking subutex for 2 years now and was denied xanax by 2 diffetent doctors because I am on the subutex. Can doctors prescribe you xanax while on subutex? I have a new doctor I'm going to try out next week but don't know if I should tell him whether I'm on the subutex or not,, even if I don't tell them I'm worried about whether they'd be able to see it in the computer or not. Please respond asap anything will help. ## Hello, Taylor! How are you? It can be prescribed, while you're on the Subutex, but most doctors are going to be reluctant to prescribe it, because it is also carries the risk of being addictive. Another issue is, if you're asking for such a medication, doctors are taught to view that as being drug seeking behavior. And yes, they w...
