hydrocodone acetaminophen with Ibuprofen
I just started taking acetaminophen + hydrocodone 7.5/500 and still have pain (tooth). Can I take Ibuprofen at the same time. ## yes you can, little secert you can hold a mouthful of listerine or alcohol on tooth an as long as its there it will relieve pain not unless its abcessed, don t swallow either as alcohol an apap don t mix ## Does hydrocodone-acetaminophen curve your appetitve? Does it cause itching in the following areas? sole of the feet and palms of the hands? ## I have the same issues of itching but notice it only when I take Baclofin (muscle relaxer) with it. But I have no hives or marks from itching. Just an all over itch for no reason. Is tis like a small allergic reaction of the two medicines combined? And is that normal. Been taking these for many years now. ## if you h...

Coxflam & effects to heart
I have acute Sciatica & also have a heart condition. Will Coxflan relieve the Sciatica pain & Will there be any problem with my heart condition. I am 71 & battling with the back & leg pain Will there thanks john ## Coxflam contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and no, these are not usually given to heart patients, because of the dangers that they can present to someone that has an existing heart condition. NSAID can cause fluid retention, which can result in complications, such as congestive heart failure. In addition, congestive heart failure has been induced by large doses and long-term use of some NSAID medications. My doctor has instructed me to stay away from all of them and said the only thing I should use is Acetaminop...

Switching from loestrin 24 fe to lomedia
I am one of the customers unhappy with the discontinuation of Loestrin 24 Fe. I saw so many negative reviews with those who switched to Minastrin that I refused to take it despite what my nurse was trying to say. I researched and knew a generic was coming. I have waited since October of last year for Lomedia and picked up my prescription and pills 3 weeks ago. I still haven't taken them because I'd like to know about the experience on these pills. Has anyone taken Lomedia? Please share your experience so we can all be informed. ## Hello, Kimmie! How are you? From what I can find, there is no difference better the Lomedia and LoEstrin FE, the active ingredients and the dosages are the same. The FDA has approved it as a generic equivalent, so you shouldn't have any problems wi...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

Metronidazole lasting side effects
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...

Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But They Are Conditions
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...

what is flagyl used for
what is flagyl used for ## Metronidazole trade name Flagyl is used for many things, but it is mainly used for infections caused by susceptible organisms, particularly anaerobic bacteria and protozoa. To learn more click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I also have taken flagyl for trichomoniasis, an infection I caught rather quickly years and years ago after a small stint in county jail and using their toilets and the r.n. told me everyone comes down w/the trich here. Like an infection from splashing urinary toilet water back up onto me...I guess their water system isnt all that clean when multiple people use them and I remember a terrible odor and horrible itching. But flagyl was definately what they gave me and i...

tramadol after August 18??
Hearing lots of places that the people who order tramadol via internet will no longer be able to. I live in a town with uptight doctors who charge outrageous prices plus insist on doing constant testing before writing a prescription. If true what are my option after Aug 18 ## i wish i had an answer for you, i have been using it for 3 years, more as a anti-depressant. I take 200 mg a day and feel good, certainly not intoxicated. This decision by FDA is ridiculous. Tramadol is not in the same class as Percs and Roxys etc. Unbelievable. I can go to Dr but i will be spending mad $ on their BS. Prices in the international market will now be inflated as well. The market is risky unless you know credible sources. ## Tramadol will become a Controlled Substancde Schedule IV in Aug. But, Schedule...

White small pill with A on one side and 75 on the other
Very tiny white round pill with a capital A on one side and 75 printed on the other- ## idk ## i found the same pill small round white with 75 and @ sign with k init, was thinking the worse of course and searched the whole flat to find out that it is an indigestion relief pill called ranitidine. hope this helped. ## The white tablet with an actual capital A and the number 75 on the opposite side is actually a 10mg Hydroxyzine tablet, a generic for Vistaril. It's an antihistamine that's used to treat allergic reactions and for its sedative like effects, thus most of its side effects are linked to that and can include dizziness, drowsiness and sedation. You can learn more Hydroxyzine details here. The one mentioned by Krose is actually tan or grey color (there are 2 that contain...

what time should be take the cherifer pgm effectively
best time to take the cherifer pgm ## Did your doctor provide any instructions? Cherifer PGM contains: Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) 200 mg, Zn (elemental) 15 mg, taurine 200 mg, vit A 2,756 iu, vit D 400 iu, thiamine HCl 1.95 mg, riboflavin 1.95 mg, niacinamide 35 mg, pyridoxine HCl 3 mg, cyanocobalamin 3 mcg, folic acid 250 mcg, vit C 100 mg, Fe 17 mg, Ca phosphate 150 mg, Mg oxide 7.5 mg and copper sulfate 1 mg. So it is a multivitamin supplement. Some people experience some nausea when taking it, so you may want to take it a little while before eating. Due to the energy boost that vitamins can also give, it is usually best to take it in the morning, rather than at night. ## how many times do i have to take cherifer pgm a day?? ## I dont know :) ## once a day only on other site ## i ...
