White Watson 10mg 325 #853
372 Replies RSS
I just recieved a new prescription of norco 853 10/325. The last script was yellow and the new ones are white. The pharmacist said that Watson changed the color but the pill is the same, does anyone know if this is accurate ## Watson has change a few different medications and the colors are different. But the Norco you're referring to is the same medication that you were prescribed prior. It is just as effective as the script you had filled before this one and it's a good thing that you ask the pharmacist, the pharmacist is correct. ## LuLu is correct and so was your pharmacist. There have been several posts on here recently about various Watson tablets being white now. It seems that some people were sensitive or allergic to the dyes they were using, thus they decided to do away...

oralcon contraceptive pills-missed periods
2 Replies RSS
Hi. Last month of December I saw my periods twice a month and the second one wasn't normal as usual and on the first week of January I went to check and the nurse told me its hormonal balancing and also gave me the oralcon pills. I have been taking everyday as instructed and now am on the red pills but I haven't seen my periods till today and only few days left for the month to end. Does this mean am pregnant? ## I have used oralcon but never the red pills. I used it because I had my period for 4 months straight. But oral con tales 3 to 6 months to leave your system so it might just be an irregular. ## Hi there I always get my period on the 4th red pill and it usually falls on a Monday,I don't know if I miscounted or if I skipped of my white pills but yesterday I drank my 4t...

drug to get fat
5 Replies RSS
I am extremely underweight and skinny, I am a female aged 25years and weigh 45kg. Pls help needed on a drug/medicine I can use to add weight fast I am so sick of hearing that am too thin ## Gabapentin!!! It is a anticonvulsant ask your doctor and google it people always gain wheight whe they take it. ## An anticonvulsant medication like Gabapentin should probably not be used for it's potential weight gaining purposes only, just because others have said that they gained some weight while taking it. For all we know, they could've also changed their diet and/or lifestyle while they were taking that medication; leading up to an extra few pounds. I'm not saying that it wont help you gain any weight, but the bottom line is, if you want more control over your weight (throughout the...

30 Mg Oxycodone vs 30mg Morphine Sulfate
52 Replies RSS
Which is stronger, 30mg Oxycodone or 30mg Morphine Sulfate? ## I'm sorry that you had trouble posting, but glad you persevered. As to your question, Oxycodone is one and half times stronger than Morphine. So, if you were taking 30mgs of Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine to be an equivalent dose. You can find more Oxycodone details here and there are more Morphine details here. These are both narcotics, so they both carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Sorry for the somewhat terse notation but I was frustrated in getting little to zero information in an immediate manner, my impatience was/is unacceptable. Thank you for your professional follow up. ...

Diclofenac and Voltaren gel
1 Reply RSS
Can I use both Diclofenac (tablet) and Voltaren (gel) safely at the same time for back pain? ## No, they both contain the same active ingredient, Diclofenac, so you should only use one or the other. The FDA warns that these gels could cause side effects, such as skin redness, irritation. flaking, burning, and headache. How much has your doctor told you to use?

what does the 'pur' on my oxycontin mean
1 Reply RSS
Just trying to find out what the PUR on my oxycodone bottle means. I'm guessing it's a form of sustained release, but just wanted to know the medical terminology. Thanks! ## That stands for the manufacturer, which in this case would be Purdue Pharma. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possible including nausea, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation, and dry mouth. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. Currently, Oxycontin is only available from this manufacturer and it is only available as a time released formulation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Norco and insomnia
2 Replies RSS
My mother was taking this medication after surgery yesterday and has not slept at all. Could this be contributing? ## While this medication usually causes dizziness, and drowsiness as side effects, according to FDA reports, there are some rare occasions where it has been known to cause the opposite. It can energize some people and cause insomnia. If it persists, she should consult her doctor about trying something else. Is she on any other medications, or just this one? What type of surgery did was done? ## More typos! Woohoo! I am on an epic roll, tonight. Sorry! I mean to ask what type of surgery was done?

Don't have enough money for my Xarelto prescription
2 Replies RSS
I was diagnosed with a blood clot in my leg and it busted and went to my lungs (pe) in February. So I've been on this medicine ever since. But recently I lost my job and insurance, and meds are $440 dollars for a one month supply. I haven't taken any meds for 3 or 4 days, and I'm starting to feel some of the effects of i guess my blood thickening. What should I do before it's too late? ## I would suggest contacting your doctor, there are cheaper alternatives that can be prescribed, such as Warfarin. While it does require more frequent INR monitoring the price for it is much lower in most areas of the U.S. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? How ar...

no period metronidazole
1 Reply RSS
I am 5 days late on period. Took a pregnancy test yesterday came up negative. I was on metro pill 500mg twice day for a week. Was suppose to get my period about 4/5 aftwr taking last of medicine. I had to take a diflucan too cause the meds give me a yeast infection. Could the metro pills possibly be making me late? Did i take a preg test too early? It was an EPT test. Please help!!!! ## Yes, the FDA does warn that most antibiotics, of any type, can cause you to experience a longer cycle, so you might not experience your period, at your usual time. They can also, sometimes, interfere with oral contraceptives, and reduce their efficacy, so there might be a risk of pregnancy, if you've been engaging in intercourse. Has there been any change? Did you experience a period, yet? Are you on...

Morphine sulfate 15 mg ir and morphine sulfate er 30 mg.
1 Reply RSS
How long does morphine sulfate 15 mg ir last? I take 2 a day. I also take morphine sulfate 30 mg er 3 a day. I'm confused as to when I am supposed to take the morphine sulfate it. It only seems to last 4 hours and the morphine 30 mg er seems to last no more than 7 hours. I can only stand and bend for 10 minutes or less until I'm in excruciating pain. My pain Dr. Only sees me once every 6 month's. I've had a spinal fusion & fractured back and a fractured neck. ## The regular release, which you refer to as IR is usually taken every 8 hours, and the ER every 12 hours, but you should ultimately follow the prescribing instructions, because only a medical professional can help you decide what is safest and best for you. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk o...
