naltrexone/alcohol
11 Replies RSS
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"...

a333 white pill
15 Replies RSS
I just started taking the A333 pill. It is supposed to be a generic substitute for oxycodone 10/325. I was taking the Watson 932 generic substitute but was switched to the A333 pill because of drug store supply. I have noticed the A333 does not work nearly as well as the Watson 932 for me. ## Hello, Will! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. How long have you been taking this one? There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, but they are usual minuscule and normally your body will adjust after a short period of time. ## I have been taking Percocet for a long time. Up until about 4 months ago I would get this strong burst of energy along with killing the pain. It would last about 4hrs. I would get the...

Pill Identifiection

Found a little ovel pill what looks to be upside down m on one side and the number 15 on the other looking at the pill like this turn it around it looks like a w in bold lettering can u help me please ## Hi Martie, What color is this pill you're describing? If it's yellow, it fits the description of a 15mg Mobic (Meloxicam) tablet, commonly used for pain and inflammation caused by arthritis. The correct marking is "M" on one side and "15" on the other. However the "M" can look like a W depending on which way you hold it. I would say it's a pretty bold font face as well. For added verification, the manufacturer is listed as Boehringer Ingelheim, and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 0597-0030. Lastly, the pill measures approximately 11.00...

Amox Tr K Clv 875 125 Mg Tab Side Effects

my husband is takeing this for a sins infection and his lip after takeing the pill swollen to three times it's size is this a side effect ## No, that is not a normal side effect of this antibiotic and he should contact his doctor immediately, that seems more like it may be an allergic reaction, of some sort, and he will likely need to try a different antibiotic. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Taking AMOX TR K and have broke out in a rash, is this common? ## I have been taking amox trk clv 875-125 mg for about three days now, to treat a sinus infection, and have noticed i feel agitated and slightly edgey almost anxious and a little shakey. Is this normal and will my body adjust or is this not normal ? should I discontinue use? ## I took amoxicillin tr-k clv 875-125mg t...

do you insert Nystatin inside your vagina for inflamation?
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed Nystatin triamcinolone acetonide cream usp for inflamation of my cervix but I dont know if i am supposed to put the cream inside of my vagina? It says for external use only? ## Hi Jess, It may be a good idea to double check with your prescribing doctor first, but from my understanding - when a medication says "for external use only", I get the sense that they use that as a warning to not 'orally' ingest it. However, my personal opinion is that it should be ok to apply on the outer areas of the cervix and not directly inside, unless specifically instructed otherwise by your doctor. I think that would probably be the best way to play it safe until further notice if I were in such a position. Does anyone else have thoughts on this?

red face lil itchy face puffy
2 Replies RSS
Hello i have been prescribed medrol 4 mg. For a sinus infection, along with a antibiotic,nasal spray.my face is red,lil puffy and im a lil itchy. Should i be worried, n call the doctor ## Hello, Linda! How are you doing? Yes, it would be best to have these symptoms checked out to be safe. There's a chance they may just be side effects, but you could be having an allergic reaction. Medrol is classified by the FDA as a steroid and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and nervousness. Antibiotics may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Has it gotten any worse? ## For a reaction such as this, I would feel more confident in asking my pharmacist. My opinion only, think they are more up...

what is the withdrawl like when your on methadone to subutex
12 Replies RSS
Please be ware there is no explaining what will happen to you physically and mentally you will wish you where dead and you feel like your going to I was on 80mg of methadone for 1 month I did 1\4 of an ampuill it was the worst experience I don't think they put o the warning labels what happened but it was really BAD ## Hi Pat, Sorry to hear about what happened. Sounds like you had a pretty grueling experience there. And I can only imagine how concerned I would be too, without having any prior warning labels/interactions listed on the packaging to help make sense of what's going on. From what I've read, it's probably not safe to use either of these drugs within at least a week of each other. Taking subutex (buprenorphine) directly after methadone could potentially put you...
