Adderall cor 135 20 mg
1 Reply RSS
I'm a 21 year old female adult who has recently been diagnosed with ADHD. My brother, father, and boyfriend have it so I'm pretty familiar with the topic by now, though I am definitely still learning. My boyfriend and brother both take Adderall XR, which I have tried a couple times. I have found the drug to be very beneficial for me and am more informed on how that works. I would also just like to say, that no, I'm not an addict or just trying to abuse the drug. I do have an actual, verified issue that requires medication. The first prescription I received was Straterra, which really just made me exhausted, really dizzy, and depressed. It also did nothing for my poor attention. So needless to say, I asked for something else. I was recently just switched to Cor 135 20 mg (Tha...

the generic
1 Reply RSS
I found in the generic Bystolic, among other chemicals as inactive ingredients Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and at least one artificial color ?! Both of this chemical are well known cncerogen, any explanation for that ?! As soon as possible I’ll replace it. ## Hello, Snoopy! How are you? While some of the inactive ingredients may be known to be carcinogens, if you read the research studies, that's usually if someone is ingesting very high amounts for a long period of time. However, the amounts in a pill are minuscule and in those amounts, the FDA considers them to be generally safe for long-term use. This is frequently misunderstood, even when it comes to something such as dogs eating chocolate. A little nibble won't result in a death sentence, they'd have to eat a lot, in mo...

Is Meloxicam Gluten Free
9 Replies RSS
I have been taking meloxicam for 1 1/2 weeks and I am experiencing celiac symptoms. I would like to know if meloxicam is gluten free ## Meloxicam is actually a generic medication, the name brand for it would be Mobic and, since it is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies. Thus, I can't tell you anything about the inactive ingredients without more information from you, such as the markings on the tablet, or the name of the manufacturer. Can you please post back with this information? ## I would like to know if gluten is in my meloxicam. It's an oblong light yellow pill with a 15 stamped on it. I'm expericening floating, constipation, and stomach pains. ## Is taking muscle relaxers 500mg and meloxicams 7.5mg and buspirone 10mgs okay to take all in the mo...

Bulging Hemorrhoids
1 Reply RSS
I have hemorrhoids, it's internal but after a week it's bulging? What will I gonna do with this? Even just to relieve the intense pain. ## Hello, Ana! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you're having. If it's very painful, you'll most likely need surgery to have them removed. That's usually the only lasting and long-term solution. There are some topical ointments that can temporarily relieve the pain, but they don't work for very long. Have you consulted your doctor? The surgery is usually not very complicated and done on an outpatient basis.

Norco taken for Degenerative disc disease
1 Reply RSS
Works great for pain however......Has anyone noticed that this pill works excellent to stop allergies? No more sneezing congestion or runny nose. Anyone? Or just me? My doc thinks I'm lying. ## Hello, Lovely! How are you? Rather than actually relieving your allergies, you might just be experiencing the side effect of the opiate drying the mucosa. They are actually very well known to do that and without that extra moisture causing irritation, it would also make sense that your sneezing would stop. The FDA classifies this as 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. So, it isn't that it would really be alleviating your allergies, it's just preventing such a se...

bontril twice a day?
1 Reply RSS
Can you take a bontril SR pill in the morning and then in the late afternoon? I'm feeling sluggish and hungry by 4pm. ## Hello, Belly! How are you? No, the slow release tablets are taken just once a day. However, you may be able to switch to the regular release 35mg ones and take them 2 to 3 times a day. Have you spoken to your doctor about the problem? The FDA lists this medication as a stimulant that is used to aid in weight loss. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, anxiety, headache, anorexia, sweating and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?

can mucinex dm and lisinopril be taken together
1 Reply RSS
Can MucinexDM and Lisinopril be taken together? ## Hello, Patsy! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between the two, however, you should check with your doctor, before you take the Mucinex DM. Some decongestants can elevated your blood pressure and raise heart rate, so it may not be safe for you to take it. Coricidin has a line of products you may want to look for instead, they are labeled HBP, so you know they are safe to take, if you have high blood pressure. Lisinopril is classified by the FDA as an ACE inhibitor and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increase urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

naproxen interactions with diphenhydramine hcl
1 Reply RSS
I take 325 mg of naproxen 2x a day for knee pain. Can I take 1-2 capsules of 25 mg of Diphenhydramine for allergy relief? Just for one evening. Not planning on taking any more. ## Yes, you can take them together, as long as your doctor approves. If you check the ingredients of some of the pain relief PM medications you'll find that they actually use Diphenhydramine in most of them to help people sleep. With that noted, the Naproxen may potentiate the drowsiness side effect and it could knock you out for the day, so make sure you won't be driving, or operating any heavy machinery. Other side effects may include dizziness, dry mouth and blurred vision. The FDA classifies Naproxen as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical sid...
