can a single 2000mg dose be harmful?
I have an infection. I was wondering if (4) 500mg capsules can be taken at once. I remember being prescribed the same dosage of another antibiotic and was instructed to do all at once. It was a chalky metallic tasting pill cant remember the name of it.

Zepose 10 - WHITE-
Does the zepose 10 white crossed scored tablet actually contain 10mg of diazepam. Some say only 5mg. ## this site does not manufacture any medications, nor are we affiliated with any manufacturers, so the only thing I can tell you is that the 10 tablets are supposed to contain 10mgs of Diazepam. As a Benzodiazepine, this medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

Tylenol and Ibuprofen
I was told today, taking 2 Tylenol and 2 ibuprofen is equivelant to taking morphine for pain! Is there any truth to that? ## Hello, Keith! How are you? No, that is not accurate. Alternating the two, say by taking Tylenol in the morning, then Ibuprofen 8 hours later can sometimes result in better pain relief, because it can help reduce swelling more significantly that just taking one or the other, but it will not be anywhere close to Morphine and doubling up on them, at the same time, could be dangerous, due to the toxic effects they may have on the liver. Is there anything else I can help with?

does purple cough syrup have red dye
I'm asking does the purple promathine with codeine have red dye in it ## Hello, Marie! How are you? What manufacturer is listed on the label? I need that information in order to check the inactive ingredients for you. Can you please post back and clarify? Thanks! This contains a narcotic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Side effects of Oxycontin
Can someone please tell me why I am having such bad reactions to OC (the usual itching, nausea and vomiting). I am vomiting 5-6 time a day, and find it extremely difficult to keep anything down, even water. I have been prescribed OC 80mg for severe disc protrusion, awaiting surgery, subsequent to a double discectomy and laminectomy (lumbar). I am aware that opioids can adversely affect people who are not tolerant, but for me, this is not the case. In the past I have had Diamorphine and Fentanyl 75 with no issues, not even withdrawal. Can anyone throw any light on this for me. They are great for the pain, but I can no longer handle the side effects. ## In addition to this post, when I vomit from the meds, I often end up vomiting the pill which then has no effect on the pain. With respect...

I have fibromialgia and take 30 mgs Oxycodone 3 x a day
What are the side effects, if any if I take Oxycodone 30 mgs. 3 x a day with a new medicine I was given once a day--Ritalin 20 mgs.? What do people take Ritalin for. Are there bad side effects of Ritalin alone?

Klor-con, potassium
Con you tell me how many bananas I have to eat to get the same amount of potassium as one klor-con m20 tab? ## Hello, Frank! How are you? From what I can find, they estimate approximately 1 mEq per inch of banana, so you'd need to eat 20 inches of banana for each tablet you are supposed to take. It would likely be easier to just take the tablets, rather than eating bananas all day, every day. Is there anything else I can help with?

citalopram weight gain
I HAve been on these pill a year. I. Weigh 206-210.NOW I am at 229 Very disgusting. I am going to quit taking them TODAY COLD TURKEY will PRAY God will help me ## Hello, Clara! How are you? Stopping it cold turkey might cause rebound effects, such as severe depression, lethargy and suicidal thought, so please be careful. There are other alternatives you can take that usually don't cause weight gain, such as Prozac, so you may want to speak to your doctor about trying it. Is there anything else I can help with?

I started forgetting many thing after having topamac 25 mg, amitryn 25mg an naxdom 500mg for migraine. is this due to this medicine or something else? ## Hello, Newbei! How are you? It is most likely due to the Topamax, seizure medications are well known to cause memory impairment, along with mood swings, dizziness and drowsiness. Leaving yourself notes to remember things might help. Is there anything else I can help with?

doctors who can prescribe methadone for pain management in colorado
I've been on methadone for almost 13 yrs due to a car accident when I was a teenager that left me disabled and with chronic pain. My current Dr. Received a letter from the Medical Board ( which he let me see) explaining that in order to keep prescribing methadone that he will need to get a license that will allow him too continue to perscribe this. My dr said it's became a huge hassle and that because of other patients "dr shopping" he just can't do it anymore. I've been with him for over 6 yrs! He was nice enough to give me a supply to last me a few months to give me time to find a Dr that will help me. My dr now said if by chance I'm still haveing trouble at the end of three months, he will keep helping me but he's not sure for how much longer. I'm ...

doxycycl hycl cap 100 mg. Interactions
Can you take it with Potassium supplement and calcium w/Vit. D supplement? ## Hello, Margo! How are you? It would likely be best to separate it from the Calcium by at least 2 hours, because calcium can coat the stomach and prevent the absorption of some medications. Side effects to this antibiotic may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Help with Zoloft
Hello Folks. I've been prescribed Zoloft after being on Vailum (for a inner ear issue). It made me tired. So I was switched to Paxil then Wellbutrin. These made me even more tired! So, I'm back on Zoloft. This is my 9th day. I now take at night. I now wake up at night (10 minutes or so), have dry-mouth, and fell very, very depressed, for no apparent reason. So, from the reading around I've done, looks like this is normal, and I will feel better soon? I've never suffered depression until now, so this is very, very frustrating and disconcerting. I'm scheduling appointments with psychologist and psychiatrist but not really finding answers on what to expect with this med. ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? Yes, such side effects can be normal and may occur for the first 4 to ...

My husband has been taking Cheratussin AC 10-100MG/5ML. He has not slept since he started taking it. (over 46 hours). He has bronchitis and is coughing a lot. Should he not take this. He is 73 and no sleep concerns me. ## I'm not sure what might be causing his insomnia, it could be due to the coughing itself, that can make it very hard to sleep. The medication shouldn't cause it, since one of the ingredients is Codeine, which usually causes drowsiness. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is he taking anything else? Has he gotten any sleep, yet?

Methadone detoxing with chronic pain disease... Need advice!
I have severe case of Fibromyalgia with many flare ups where the pain becomes s bad I end up in the ER on dilaudid via IV. I became pregnant 6yrs ago and had been taking percocet for 2 years and was when I became pregnant so my OB/GYN advised on start on the methadone maintenance program. By the end of my term the clinic had me up to 175mg's. Recently I detoxed down 2 mg’s a week and now I am at 46mg's. It hurts something terrible.

Flawed Unit-emergency!
Please: I'm currently on my 4th Asthmanefrin unit, the local stores have exchanged it so far. Now I can't breathe and the unit won't work. I have the racepinephrine liquid refills but no way to get it into my system. Any suggestions for middle-of-the-night/emergency delivery methods?? It doesn't matter how you clean it; this is a flawed product that only works for 1-4 months. ## Hello, Destined! How are you doing? If you're breathing gets so bad that you are in emergency status, you should call 911 for assistance. As to the Asthmanefrin, since this is an over the counter product, you will likely have better luck if you contact the manufacturer about the issues. They list a contact number as 855-999-3926. Do you have any prescription products you use for your asthma?

round orange peach pill with capital peach L
I found a small orange/peach pill with a capital L on it. The L is not black but the same color as the pill ## From what I can find, this is just another 81mg Aspirin tablet, the dose that's commonly used for blood thinning and heart health. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you to confirm this and be sure. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Does anyone else know?

Zubsolv reviews
Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me.

And it burns the shiznikks out of my mouth! ## tried it yesterday, really good in my opinion a big step forward, easy to use and you get rid of the hideous aftertaste. Haven't noticed any difference in strength. ## Much, much, much better taste and really fast dissolve time - I really can recommend Zubsolv!! ## Hello, Based on my research, Zubsolv is a medication that contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine + Naloxone.
