white round pill s z75

I found a pill in my yard with SZ75,on it could you tell me what it is ## Hello, Harold! How are you? Is the marking possibly ZC 75? If so, that tablet is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 1mg of Risperidone. The FDA classifies this medication as a very potent antipsychotic. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, somnolence, weight gain and dry mouth.

benadryl question experience allergies
1 Reply RSS
So I've taken benadryl off and on, especially when I didn't have a prescription for loratadine back in the old days for my allergies, usually one every night. But the other day I took two in the span of three hours. 50 mg. I fell asleep for an hour later, and woke up with muscle weakness, later constipation, frequent urination, and a few others that I'm embarrassed to admit. I'm hoping that the "few others" were just my imagination, because I feel like 50 mg would be physically impossible to produce these side effects in 160 pound person? Or can you suddenly find yourself with a drug allergy? I hope not, because Benadryl is cheap, compared to loratadine which is 1 dollar a day. For now, I just went out and bought pseudophedrine and that's working fine. I look...

take 2 pills every 4 6 hours how many a day
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed 30 percocet and was told to take 1 tablet every 4-6 hours as many days is that suppose to last if i am taking them every 5 hours for pain? ## Hello, Jona! How are you? How many days supply does your pharmacy list it as being? The issue here is that it's an 'as needed' prescription and not a strict dosing schedule, so apparently your doctor thinks you'll only need to take one occasionally, so they may expect it to last a few weeks, or as long as a month. The FDA classifies this medication 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. When is your next appointment?

Does anyone else get their suboxone levels checked?
1 Reply RSS
My son is on 24 mg of suboxone each day. At the beginning of July he took 2 extras. His doctor sends out his urine to a lab to check his levels. His next appointment is in September. Will those 2 extras be out of his urine by then? Does anyone know or have their levels checked? I'm worried about him. ## Yes, it is very common for a doctor to check someone's levels to make sure they are taking Suboxone as prescribed and not selling it. The FDA classifies this medication as an opioid that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. He should not be taking extra and whether or not they pick it up will depend on the type of evaluation used. Th...

Backup After Placebo Week
1 Reply RSS
This is my second month to take Tri Sprintec. Do I need to use backup for seven days when starting a new pack since taking the white pills is like taking nothing at all? If not, I usually take my pills at 8 but I started my new pack 4 hours late today; will that be a problem? ## Hello, MissAnn! How are you? No, you only need the backup contraceptive for the first week you start them, when either new to taking them, or after having taken a break from taking them. And no, again. Taking a pill late, occasionally, is fine. The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

Stopping period.
1 Reply RSS
I started my period on my last week of blue pills, today(Monday). I am having a family vacation this weekend and am going to be outside doing active things. Is there anyway I can end my period early if I keep taking the blue pills?? Any other suggestions for ending it early?? ## Hello, Morgan! How are you? No, it's going to run its course now and there's not really anything that can be done. In the future, you can skip the placebo pills to skip your period, if your doctor approves. Many women do that. The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

How to get off Suboxone successfully - Step by step
211 Replies RSS
If you are struggling with getting off Suboxone successfully, you may want to take the time to read this. I have read a ton of hype about Suboxone being impossible to get off. How the withdrawal symptoms carry on for days, even months. Below, I would like to encourage you and let you know that it can be done. I AM LIVING PROOF YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS FEAT!!! I have been free of Suboxone and all other drugs and alcohol for 3 months and I have never felt better in my life!!! THE WAY THAT SUCCESS HAPPENED FOR ME AND CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU: For months I read Suboxone blog sites in the effort to gather some element of hope that would encourage me to make the “jump” to get off my final 1/8 tab (1mg) of Suboxone. At the point I started reading these blog sites, I had come down from 2.5...

Losartan Peripheral Neuropathy
1 Reply RSS
Can peripheral neuropathy be a rare side effect of Losartan? I just cut back from 100mg/day to 50mg/day. I also get leg/foot cramps while sleeping, tightness in my calfs while walking, and just recently developed a dry cough. These other symptoms are more common - are they not? ## Hello, Joanna! How are you? No, I'm not seeing that listed anywhere among the side effects provided by the FDA, though yes, it can cause pain in some people that take it. You may also experience dizziness, nausea and increased urination. However, if you have the dry cough, you should speak to your doctor as you will most likely need to switch to a different medication. Once the coughing starts, it doesn't usually go away. Is there anything else I can help with?

Has anyone experienced this after 3 months of taking them? Another thing a couple of months ago my period was 13 days late!! its always been irregular but not normally that late. We are trying for a baby so i'm wondering if it could be pregnancy symtoms also. ## Hi. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I just wanted to reply because you aren't alone! I started at 75mcg, then 88, then 100. I experienced a dizzy spell followed by tremors in both hands and legs and was rushed to the ER. They thought I was having a stroke. Gave me an MRI/MRA, heart ultrasound, EKG and found everything to be normal. They did find my th...
