Blue pill in my ibuprofen
1 Reply RSS
I found a blue pill that has I3 on it in my regular equate ibuprofen. What is it and why? This isn't the first time this has happened. ## Hello, Wonderer! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals, it is another over the counter product that they list as containing 220mgs of Naproxen. It is a generic or store brand of Aleve. The FDA classifies this medication as being a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. They are most likely packaged at the same plant, most of them commonly package several different over the counter medications and one from a prior batch got mixed in. Is there anything else I can help with?

Belviq and anxiety disorders
Post a Reply
I have GAD (anxiety) and part of my anxiety is taking medication. I really want to try Belviq, if I had an anxiety attack would I be able to take Xanax or Ativan for the attack? Does anyone else have anxiety and take Belviq? Does it make it worse? If you wean onto it (start with .5 and work up to .10) would you have a better chance of avoiding side effects?

lo loestrin fe chewable or not
1 Reply RSS
I am switching from Genereress Fe 0.8mcg/25mcg to Lo Loestrin Fe 1mg/10mcg. I took Generess for 2yrs and loved it but the price more than doubled so I had to switch to a more affordable birth control. I am a firm believer in reading all information before starting anything. I have read all the information provied by my Dr. and it doesn't state ANYWHERE on my Lo Loestrin Fe information weather this is a chewable pill or not. My Generess was chewable and that was clearly stated on the packaging, not so much with my new Lo Loestrin Fe. It is made by the same company as Generess but each birth control differs. Is this meant to be chewed or swallowed whole???? HELP! ## Hello, Lexi! How are you? No, this one is meant to be swallowed whole. The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral co...

Mallinckrodt Fentanyl Patch
34 Replies RSS
Does anyone know how it is made? Does it have the medicine woven into the fabric of the patch or is it in a pouch form? Thank you ## No, I'm sorry, due to the risks of then being abused, such as people trying to smoke the medication from a patch, they no longer publicly list the specifics of its make up. They are really only required to list it with the FDA safety filings anyway, so they can get away with doing this quite easily. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Have you gotten some manufactured by them from your pharmacy? ## If the patch has a gel filled pouch....what would the gel be there for if it wasn't impregnated with the medicine? ## I have been using Fentanyl patches for about 2 years, the 75 Mcg. I usually get the Mylan brand. Drug store was low on the Wty they had so...

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
102 Replies RSS
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

little round yellow pill m on one side
1 Reply RSS
I have a little yellow pill that is round with a capital M on one side and on the other side it has n 20 written in a fraction form ## Hello, Jodie! How are you? What do you mean by written in fraction form? Do you mean that the N is over the 20? There is a round, orangish tablet manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals that has a capital M on one side and N over 20 on the opposite, they list it as containing 2mgs of Ropinirole. The FDA classifies this medication as a dopamine agonist, it is most commonly used to treat Parkinson's Disease and RLS. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, hallucinations and sudden daytime sleep attacks. Is there anything else I can help with?

bendictine
529 Replies RSS
I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

zc 38 long oval white pill

Can this be a form or substitute of benicar hct ??? ## Hello, Robb! This tablet is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and they list is as containing 200mgs of Hydroxychloroquine. The FDA shows this medication as being used to treat or prevent malaria. Its typical side effects may include nausea, blurred vision, headache, unusual bruising and weakness. So no, it is not a substitute for Benicar and will do nothing to treat high blood pressure or a cardiac condition. Bencher contains the active ingredient Olmesartan, which is classified by the FDA as an ARB. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and hypotension. Were you given this in place of Benicar?

can percocet AND Flexeril be taken together
20 Replies RSS
I take Percocet and Flexeril and was told by the doctor to wait a couple of hours before I take one or the other. What are the possible side effects, positive and negative. ## More than likely he advise to space them apart because they can both cause central nervous system depression. This can cause your breathing to slow and be shallower, a slower heart rate and etc. Using them both together can also worsen some other side effects, that they both can cause, such as drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. He is probably trying to minimize this for you. If you use them as he instructed you to, you may be able to get better pain control. Many doctors prescribe a muscle relaxant, like Flexeril, along with other pain management medications. Reducing the tenseness in the muscles can help lessen th...
