eye drops in ear,is this harmful?
2 Replies RSS
I'm accidentally put tetrahydrozoline in my ear & now I'm experiencing some nausea. Should I be concerned and are there any other symptoms I should be on the look out for? Also, my intention was to use ear wax removing solution, is it okay to attempt to loosen the cerumen in my ear or should I wait awhile? ## Hello, Jkidd! How are you? No, generally eye drops in your ear aren't a concern, though you may experience the nausea, as you have, due to the fluid in the ear. You should also make sure that it drains out, before trying to use anything else. It's always best to double check with your doctor, but I doubt you have anything to worry about here. If you put ear drops in your eye, that would be a concern, because ear drops aren't sterile, like eye drops. Is there...

methocarbam 750mg or cyclobenapram 100 mg?
1 Reply RSS
Which is better for the pain, methocarbam 750 mg, or cyclobenzapram 10 mg?. ## Hello, Robin! How are you? Neither of these medications are analgesics to relieve pain. These are both classified by the FDA as muscle relaxants, so they only help with pain that is caused by muscle spasming, such as that caused by sprains and strains. Their typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. And they are both effective medications, so it really comes down to which one works better for you. Which one has your doctor prescribed?

88 Replies RSS
My friend has been taking xanax for the past two months he's been taking the 2Mg bars he would eat about 10 bars a day because of his anxiety he stoped taking them for couple of weeks and now he is not remebering anything he has been passing out and saying he had a conversation with somebody and never even talked to that person. like we'll be sitting in a room and he will think the phone is ringing but it isnt. and he said he had a conversation with me one day and i never even talked to him that day. I'm trying to find out if this could be from the xanax because its making me very worried. ## Your friend is going through severe withdrawel. You need to take him to emergency as xanax withdrawel can cause seizures. He is seing things that are not there because stopping xanax at...

New fioranal capsles don't work as good as my regular white pills with a V on them. Whats up
1 Reply RSS
The green and white tablets are not effective. These new green and yellow capsules are not as effective as the white tablets with a V on them. What's up. If drug companies are cutting corners I will turn them in to the FDA for a full investigation. I get constant headaches and I MUST have a medicine that works ## Hello, Connie! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're getting headaches. Many people have said the same thing about these, they just don't seem to work as well for most people. However, it isn't that the manufactured is cutting corners, they are allowed to differ from the name brand in the amount of the active ingredients by as much as plus or minus 20%, under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984. Thus, these ones may be a little lower than the others and too low t...

drug withdraw
1 Reply RSS
how long do you have to wait to start taking subs or zubsolv, how sick do you have to be? Can I cut the pill in have I don't know if I need a whole one ## Hello, Pen! How are you? You should follow your doctor's instructions for starting it. You need to be in full withdrawals, otherwise the Naloxone in this medication could throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. They are not time released, so they can be cut to lower the dosage, if your prescriber approves. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

What can take the place of visteril
1 Reply RSS
I am out of my visteril and can't get it refilled, is there anything I can take to help take the place to help with the side effects of withdrawal ? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Have you discussed it with your doctor? They may be able to refill it and help you. There are some antihistamines available over the counter, such as Diphenhydramine and Meclizine, but they aren't as potent and effective as Vistaril, which is why it's a prescription only medication. They may also cause side effects, as listed by the FDA, that may possibly include dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have a petition against Actavis Pharmaceutical for distributing bad Oxycodone. I called Actavis on the phone and they claim that the formula is the same. I was told by a reliable source that the formula has changed along with more fillers and binder included. Please let me know if you want to find my petition on The heading will read ACTAVIS pharmaceuticals: STOP SELLING OXYCODONE AS A PLACEBO PILL TO CHRONIC PAIN SUFFERERS! Stop lining the pockets of Actavis Pharmaceutical! Thank you ## I have been taking 15mg Oxycodone for some time now. I actually break the tablet into quarters and take 3.75mg at night. Last month I began taking my recently filled prescription of Activas 15mg Oxycodone from Walgreens. After taking the Activas I became very sick. Stomach pain with very b...

Diamox, Cannabis, Alcohol
1 Reply RSS
I have pseudo tumor cerebri and just got a lumbar puncture AKA a spinal tap for it. After that I was prescribed diamox to keep the pressure down and the doctor told me I shouldn't take recreational drugs such as cannabis or alcohol. Being a college student this is a bit of an issue because I'm going to be on this medication for the next 8 months or so. Does anyone know if taking cannabis or alcohol while on this is really that bad? Or if one is safer than the other? Thank you! ## Hello, Mackenzie! How are you? Marijuana has never been shown to react adversely with any prescription medication. Alcohol, however, can be problematic, because it can worsen the side effects and aggravate many medical conditions, so it is best to avoid it, while under treatment. However, it is always b...

Starting taking last night for first time had a good night sleep but the next day felt sedated all day was hard to function at work is the normal with start up. ## Hello, Andre! How are you? Yes, that can be normal, when you're new to taking this medication. The FDA classifies it as a tricyclic antidepressant. You may also experience other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

prednisone maintenance 4mg for 10 plus years
1 Reply RSS
After 10 plus years on 4 to 5mg prednisone my Dr. wants to taper me off. I heard that you will no longer produce it naturally in the body after that many years, is that true? With two Auto Immune Diseases I really don't want to remove this medication. His alternative is to go on a relatively new immuno suppressive Medication called Aubagio, anyone taking this/feedback? ## Tapering you off of it is to prevent the issues that would occur with sudden withdrawal, such as your natural steroid hormones being screwed up and not produced by your body, anymore. Aubagio is classified by the FDA as an immunomodulatory drug, so it works differently than the steroids and there is less risk of someone developing a severe infection, while on it. Its typical side effects may possibly include body a...
