how long to get out your system
h ow long does it take for daliresp to get out of your system. ## Hi Cindi, According to the US National Library of Medicine, "the average plasma half-life of Roflumilast and its metabolite (N-oxide) are reported to be an approximate 17 and 30 hours." Ref: This means that after every 17 hours, half of the Roflumilast you took is on it's way out of your system, and in another 17 hours there will be "half of that remaining half" left in your system, and so forth. This isn't including the half life of the metabolite (N-oxide), but if you're only concerned about the drug itself, you should be in the clear after a few days I'd imagine. Although this also depends on how much you took as well as several other factors (suc...

Dilaudid Elago 24mg ER once a day versus 120mg. MS Contin
I have several physical back,neck,knee,foot issues that cause chronic pain. I have been on pain medications for about 20 years. Yes..I know it sounds like a long time. But I had small kids to raise and a very unsupportive husband. I am at a pain clinic. Recently I asked to be taken off of MS Contin 60mg. twice a day with 3 tablets of 4mg. dilaudid for breakthrough pain. I did take the dilaudid sparingly according to my activity level. Well..they wanted me to try long acting ELAGO in place of the morphine. I feel like the ELAGO does not last 24 hours and I feel like I need to take more 4mg. dilaudid. I also feel like I am getting a rapid heartbeat sometimes. Could you tell me what may be happening to me? I was hoping to not have to take anything other than the ELAGO ER, but it is not the...

primolut n tablet
I'm going on holiday in about 4 weeks time and my period will be due at the same time. I know I can take primolut n to delay my period, but after reading about the side effects it sounds like I might have Pms-like symptoms while I'm taking it. So I'm wondering if once the period I'm on now finishes I could take the primolut n tabs for about a week or so, would this bring my period on early? So I could get it out of the way before my holiday?? ## Actually, there are no guarantees that it will delay your period, or bring it on early. It might, but it is a hormone and when you are playing with the levels of them in your body, the effects can be unpredictable. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? They'd be the best person to advise you in this matter. ## Thanks...

Long White Pill With 2 On One Side And Xano The Other What Kind Of Is This
I have a long white bar with 3 hatch marks, one side has a large number 2 on it and the other side has XANO on the other side, what is this? ## Xano is a foreign brand name for Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax, the 2 on it indicates that it is a 2mg tablet. This is a Benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, irritability and headache. More details: Is there anything else I can help with? ## I take xanax for anxiety also but recently received pills similar but it says ONAX and are a lot bigger than the xanax I'm use to taking. I also am not sure of the change or if they work as well or anything , one thing I do know is they are changing the look and imprints on all narcotic medication due to people selli...

what does the v mean on a white pill

He thinks vicodin is the brand name. Can u explain this a little better for me thanx ## Most likely, it is the symbol for the manufacturer of the pills.. Qualitest

missouri pain dr for son in wheelchair
I just moved to stella MO near Joplin, i dont know the area well, but my oldest son has MD and spinal rods put in his back, he has been in a wheelchair since 3 years old, he is grown now, but i dont know where to take him, he is on lortab, soma and xanax along with many other non narcotics pills. Does anyone know where i can take him and they will not treat him like a pill head, and that would take his insurance, he is on SSI Thanks a worried mom ## Put, Missouri HealthNet Provider Search, in your search bar. Be sure to call and verify that a dr does accept medicaid. You also need to contact your sons Health Plan and be sure that the dr is on their plan. There is no guarantee that another dr will treat him with the same meds as his last dr. The new dr should also get a copy of his medic...

klonopin brand name not available
Hi as everyone who takes brand name Klonopin knows its on backorder. I have try the generic it don't work for me.. But that is at the same mg as the Brand. I was wondering if anyone has try the generic at a higher mg? And if so did it work like the brand name? ## Hi Sharon, Sorry to hear that the generic didn't end up working for you. I did want to point something out though that may be the reasoning as to why it's not as effective as the brand name (even at the same milligrams). I think it really comes down to the "inactive/non-medicinal" ingredients that they also put into these tablets. These ingredients are known to vary between brands and generics alike, but I have also heard that companies will often use cheaper binders and fillers in their generic versions to ...

anxiety worse on pristiq
6 months ago my doctor switched me to Pristiq xr 100mg to replace Effexor xr 75mg. The med. always seems to stop working after abot 6 or7 months or so. I have not seen my doc in 6 months and i've noticed my anxiey is terrible. I don't trust co-workers and am paronoid that when I walk into work, they are thinking bad thoughts of me. This stops me from opening up/making friends. My co-workers eventually end up not liking me. I hope someone can relate with me. 5 years ago this was just depression, and the in the last 3 years whatever anxiety I may have had has slowly gotten worse. Is this typical of these medications? I've even considered divorcing just to start a new life/new chapter. I hope someone can help. thank you. ## My wife of 13 years started acting irrational, had ras...

round orange pill 029 on one side r the other
By what means do people take this tablet illegally? Orally thru the nose or injection or even smoke? ## @Kim, With "R 029" being a 0.5 mg generic Alprazolam tablet, it's probably one of the most highly abused drugs on the market. People find many ways to abuse these types of medications, if not by all of the methods in which you already mentioned. I wont go into detail because I already know its being done by those who could care less about the dangerous consequences. If you have a loved one who's been misusing this medication I'd probably suggest some sort of supportive intervention to encourage them to take it as prescribed. But depending on how deep they are into their level of abuse, it may take a lot of patience; at which point, maybe their doctor could begin to...

picture of a fake dark yellow xanxa R 039 wrote on it. is it real or fake
It is shaped like a xanxa bar and is very dark yellow like musturd and has R039 on it. Is it real or fake ## Hi bubba, Just to confirm, the real 2mg Alprazolam marked with R|0|3|9, is a 14.00 mm rectangular bar with a mustard-colored shade of yellow, including three score lines on the back. The "R" should also be "cursive-like" with a little line extending outward like this "-R". However if you believe you have a fake one, I would still encourage you to look up the pill on google images for a more visual comparison. Reports say that it should be made by Actavis as well as carrying a National Drug Code of 00228-2039 for verification. I hope this helps!

wet yellow norco tens
I had seven yellow norcos in a bag and left them in the pocket of my pants... put the pants in washer for a few min. They are still yellow an only desolved a lil. Will they still work??? ## From your description, I would probably encourage you to toss them for one good reason; and that's because you probably don't want to ingest any residue from whatever laundry detergent you used at the time. If it were not for that, IMHO, they might've still been fine to take, but may be noticeably less potent from having been partially dissolved. I hope this helps!

weight gain tablet names
which tablet increase weight in 2 month ## Hi Mahendran, How are you? With regards to weight gain tablets, there's nothing you can take that's going to add pounds without consuming more calories than you burn on a day to day basis. So eating larger portions or having more frequent meals throughout the day would probably be my first bit of advice from personal experience. However there are some appetite stimulating supplements at various health food stores that may help you reach your caloric needs much quicker. Also, if you don't want all your weight gain to turn to fat, it may be a good idea to integrate some form of regular strength training into your routine to maximize results. I hope this helps!

Hi I just started taking this A333 white oblong pill. (Generic Percocet. 10/325). I never had this type before and got it due to pharmacy supply. My question is has anyone noticed a difference in pain relief from other brands. Maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to work as well. Can't wait to hear some other input on this. Thanks. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis (Watson) and yes, there have been quite a few complaints about it recently. Prior to them popping up on here, I was actually not aware of this tablet and just managed to find the information on it. It appears that it must be cheaper than other generics, because more pharmacies are providing it and many people are dissatisfied. Have you consulted your doctor? They may have some idea t...

cialis 50 cialis ## Based on my research, Levitra (Vardenafil) is a medication for impotence, made by Bayer in Australia/New Zealand. As far as comparing it to Cialis is concerned, both medications are considered to be potent and effective for treating generalized ED. Although I believe Vardenafil is said to have a shorter elimination half-life than Cialis. Is there anything else in particular that you wanted to know about either medication? I hope this helps!

blurred vision, unsteadiness
I've been on Gabapentin for three weeks. The unsteadiness has improved somewhat but the vision has me worried. My sight clears up about an hour or so before the next dose. It's not an alarming loss of vision, just a fuzziness that's bothersome when I read. Has anyone else experienced this and how long did it take to pass? ## Hello Hi I too am dizzy from medication but I also take other , cancer p/ T in remission. Maybe you need lower dose ask your Dr. Nice Day ## @Lonnie, Based on my research, blurred vision is actually listed as one of the more common side effects associated with Gabapentin. Ref: On that note, I don't know if you can even expect it to go away while you're still taking the medi...
