a peach pill with 3605 on one side a v on other side
i have a teenager i found an oblong peach pill with 3605 on one side and a v on the other side help ## The pill which you are describing is Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone (325 mg - 7.5 mg). Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone is a combination of two types of pain medicine to treat moderate to severe pain. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## If you "find" pills and do not know what they are for, it is best to flush them and walk away. If it isn't perscribed to you, leave it alone. Addiction is a vicious cycle that often ends in death. Is losing your life worth a high? think about it.... ## Stephan, she's worried that her kid is using the pill. She can...

what does the v mean on a white pill
I was asked bye a friend if what he takes is a percocet or vicodin because his new pills are the v perc 5s. So i told him they were generic percocet and he thinks the v stands for vicodin. He thinks vicodin is the brand name. Can u explain this a little better for me thanx ## Most likely, it is the symbol for the manufacturer of the pills.. Qualitest ## Darwinski is correct. The V is the logo for Vintage Pharmaceuticals, which is now owned by Qualitest. It has nothing to do with what the pill actually contains. Is there anything else I can help with?

I had a total shoulder replacement and my doctor gave me Percocet to go home with. They immediately took the pain away for about 4-5 hours. Now she has given me Vicodin 5/325 and they are not working, not even 2 at a time. Why don't they work for me but the Percocet does? How do I tell my doctor they are not working without her thinking I just want Percocet? ## just tell your doctor.i'm having the same problem with my new doctor.and start looking for another doctor without telling anyone just in case.your in my prayers ## Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, while this contains a different narcotic, Hydrocodone.

Antibiotics And Alchohol
I am taking the antibiotic suflameth/trimethoprim. Can a have a couple glasses of wine with dinner? ## It is generally not advised, because it can cause a worsening of the side effects, so you could find yourself dealing with severe nausea, diarrhea, dizziness and etc. It's basically taking one drink and making seem as if you'd drunk two instead and so on and since the effects of the antibiotic will still be in your system, some issues may linger for a day, or two afterwards. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am not having any side effects. I was curious if the wine would interfere in any way with the positive effects of the antibiotic. I had two glasses of red wine last night and had no adverse reactions. ## On antibiotics and an still have 2 five ounce glasses of Re...

sulfameth trimethoprim 800 / 160
Drug was prescribed yesterday (1/18/10) for a UTI which began on 1/17/10. Symptoms seemed to be lessening yesterday evening after the 2nd tablet. Time between urinating had stretched to 2 hours. Now, this morning it's back to 15 minute intervals before an overwhelming urge to urinate takes place. When urinating, there is also a bad burning sensation. Questions: (1) How long at 2 tablets per day before I experience some relief? (2) Caution against taking with grapefruit juice, but not orange juice. Why? Is there a connection with vitamin C, since I have been taking ~8 grams per day( I now have discontinued C in case there was. (3) 800 of what and 160 of what? ## It is 800mgs of Sulfamethoxazole and 160mgs of Trimethoprim, this is an antibiotic, a generic for Bactrim. As to how long i...
