Increase very low
I am a male ma name is Sameer Khan. My age is 22, height is 5 feet 4.5 inch...weight 60kg i want to increase my weight to 5.6 feet so plz advice me some medicine. ## Hello Sameer! How are you? I'm sorry, but at your age, there is no way for you to grow, anymore. When you were younger, growth factors can be used to ensure someone achieves their full height potential, but there is nothing that changes their height, once their growth years are finished. Is there anything else I can help with?

is the pill diclofen 50mg mylan adictive
Is the white pill with m on top and D5 on the bottom clear on back called Diclofen pot 50mg tab Mylan addictive ?
Updated 7 minutes ago.
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...

Queries about using evion 400 capsules
my gym coach has recommend evion 400 capsule to me for stretch marks which is on the upper corner of my chest , he told me to take 1 capsule orally and to apply 1 capsule on stretch marks ... is it safe and effective ... please help ## Hello, Vishu! How are you? Evion is just a vitamin E supplement, it isn't going to do anything for stretch marks. There's no harm in it, it is a nutrient that your body needs, but it isn't going to get rid of them. Is there anything else I can help with?

Vicodin Withdrawal
Hello, I have taken Vicodin, Tramadol, OR Lortabs recreationally OFF AND ON for the past 6 years. By off and on I mean, maybe two months on and four months off, throughout that time period. Over the last year and a half it has been strictly Vicodin, maybe one to one and a half of the m360's a day. Usually one in the morning and one in the evening. And this too has been off and on..stopping for a couple months, starting for a couple months. I haven't taken anything in a little over 2 weeks now and I still seem to have withdrawal effects that I normally never had. Every morning I wake up feeling "hungover", I get headaches almost everyday, my GI tract is always jumpy, I'm shaky and sweaty. It's just really weird to me that I am still going through this stuff..but t...

tramadol hab pharma
Ordered ol-tram 100mg for chronic pain issues. From HAB pharmaceuticals. Taken one capsule ( I open the capsule and tip it in my mouth, because I can't swallow tablets as I am a little baby, lol) Female, between 25 - 30 years old. Healthy weight. Will let you know how it goes. ## Has been 2 hours, feel fine, has taken the edge of pain, will take one more 100mg, should remove pain. So far no problems at all with HAB pharmaceuticals ol-tram. ## Has been 5 hours since first capsule, 3 hours since second capsule. Pain has subsided, feel fine, exactly same result as from any other tramadol. There is nothing wrong with ol-tram 100mg from HAB pharmaceuticals. I would question the motive from the previous person on this thread who says these are not effective. . . ## So how did you order it...

blue capsule with white powder taste like rasberry
I found some medication that state to be phrentime the are in a capsule half white n half blue they have brownish powder inside and taste rasberry are this really phrentime ## Hello, Ivette! How are you? Actually, my guess is that you've most likely found one of the over the counter raspberry supplements that are claimed to help with weight loss. Phentermine is a prescription medication, so it would have markings on it, as required by law in the U.S. Is there anything else I can help with?

medicine for fever cold headech and shore throught mucud
since last night i have a cold and mucus in nose ears and in throught now its fever with headech..plzz give me medicine details..thanx doctor. ## Hello, Wasim! How are you? I'm sorry, but this website is an information resource only, no medications are prescribed. A cold is caused by a virus, so it needs to run its course and you can only treat some of the symptoms. There are many over the counter products available, if your doctor approves of your using them. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Jaw clenching from oxycontin?
I have been prescribed oxycontin 15mg ER every 12 hours for femoral aseptic necrosis. My femur is literally dying and disintegrating inside me because of 20 years on prednisone for a congenital endocrine disorder. I'm only 25, so these past three months have been the first time I've ever really been on regular painkillers I've finally agreed to have surgery after trying everything to avoid it. In the meantime, my doctor has prescribed oxycontin to manage my pain but I'm having some weird side effects- total loss of appetite, shakes, hot flashes. It's also making me lock my jaw and clench my teeth to the point where my whole face hurts. Has anyone else experienced this side effect? And if so is there anything that can be done to mitigate it? This is the first medicati...

Oxycontin Prescription guidelines Tx
My wife has been in pain management for 12 + years. She is on 20 mg x 3 a day. What is the protocol for filling long term prescriptions we are having a problem getting hers filled the way they are written. For the last year he has written her a prescription for six months (six different prescriptions dated monthly) since she is one of his most stable patients. This saves us on office visits and she is subject to random drug panels. There has been no problem filling them for the past year until today, the pharmacy is refusing to fill them as written. ## Hello, Scootchy! How is your wife? Yes, they are not supposed to be post-dated and the pharmacy isn't supposed to fill them like that. According to regulations, she should be seen by her doctor each month and a new prescription writte...

sotalol is causing hair loss
Anybody notice hair loss while taking sotalol 120mg for PVC's? What can I do about it. ## Hello, Chickie! How are you? Yes, that is a fairly common side effect of this medication, but there's not really anything that can be done, it generally persists as long as someone is still taking it. The only suggestion I can make is to ask your doctor about trying a different medication. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

Klonopin brand name
I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus...

Day 4 of No Pristiq
I am on day 4 without Pristiq in my system. I was on 100mg for 5 years then dropped to 50mg for a few months. I tried taking a pill every other day but on my off day I was having awful withdrawal symptoms so decided to just stop taking it and get this over with. The withdrawal symptoms are driving me crazy, brain zaps, hot/cold flashes, headaches, vertigo, anxiety. My doctor said I can wait it out until Thursday and see if it gets better otherwise it's to a different drug that can be weaned off more easily. Does anyone have any success stories for weaning off pristiq and surviving the symptoms? It would be nice to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel! ## I didn't do it with Pristiq, it was a different medication, but I can assure you that there is light at the end of t...
