COUGH MED. ## Is this a narcotic? ## Yes, if you refer to the drug monograph here: Tussionex you will see it contains Hydrocodone and from some manufacturers Dyhydrocodeinone. ## Tussionex EXTRel Cost me $50.00 co-pay and not worth crap. I'm still coughing just as bad.Not enough Hydrocodone in it. ## paid 67.00 for mine and I can feel the narcotic very well,though I don't like the feeling nine hrs after taking it I needed more the cough was bad all over again ## My former doctor used to prescribe Tussionex Penn kinetic Suspension for Bronchitis or severe coughs with migraine-like headaches all during the late 90s and up until about 2008. On one occasion I went to see him with a severe chest cold with local chest pain and high fever. After his examination, as usual, he would leav...

metoprolol withdrawal
743 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

mallinckrodt Hydrocodone vs Qualitest
4 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone 5-325 s, by mallinckrodt for a few years now for back pain , they work really well, I take 2 at a time . My pharmacist switched to Qualitest and it was a nightmare . I took one of those and had a migraine headache the whole day , along with breathing problems, rash , and nausea , bad stuff . I did some research and manufacture does matter . Found a place that has Mallincroft . ## Hi Ilene, Sorry to hear about your experience with the Qualitest version. I'm glad you were able to find a place that has your preferred manufacturer in stock. If I had to make an assumption based on your description, I'd say the binders and fillers could've been the root cause of such side effects. When you switch brand names or manufacturers the drug itself doesn...

Generic Adderall IR

Has anyone used the Mallinckrodt. I have never even heard of it, and have taken the other generics with moderate success;. This brand is horrible. Very weak. Anyone experienced the same? ## Hello, Brian! How are you? Yes, several other people have complained about this one, though some have not had any problems with it. It really depends on the person. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia and insomnia. Can anyone else chime in that's taken this one? ## Generic Adderall made by Barr,Teva, Eon all seem to be great! No issues for over 4 years. Now for the 2nd time in the past 3 months I filled my script at Walmart. Instead of the orange oval pills, my bottle contained white, bitte...

xanax vs. Mylan
131 Replies RSS
whats the difference between the 2?? ## Hi Britney, Mylan is a pharmaceutical company that manufactures a lot of generics. So if a medicine says Mylan on it, that simply means that they are the manufacturer, and it is not the name of the med. Usually it would say Mylan and then also have some numbers on it. Does your pill have numbers on it as well? If so please post exactly what your pill says + the shape and color... and then somebody can run a positive ID on it for you. Take care! ## round tablet. MYLAN A4 ## MYLAN 1610, small teal capsul, what is is for and what are the side effects. is it generic XANAX? ## katlin, mentioned a round tablet with the letters a4. i was wondering if thats xanax as well. the pill is white. any info would be greatly appreciated. ## Mylan A4 is 2mg Alprazo...

Learn more Escitalopram details here. Where did you find it? ## in my car.. weird ## what is it prescribed for and what does it do to u?

New Generic 30 Mg Adderall Xr (all orange w/ R 3061 on them ) Not As Effective
79 Replies RSS
please share your experience with this never seen before, less effective drug that two different pharmacy's have given to me in last two months. they make me fall asleep! ## Hi shaun, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they're both Adderall Xr), due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Although I haven't taken this medication, I can say that they probably have an array of...
