yellow capsule westward 939
can I use westward 939 light yellow capsule for nose - throught infection. ## Hello, Yashpal! How are you? This capsule contain 500mgs of Amoxicillin, which is an antibiotic, so yes, it can treat those types of infections. However, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor has confirmed the presence of an infection. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

white generic mirapex
I have RLS and have been on mirapex for 7 years. I tried other meds, but this really works. Up until my pharmacy changed where they buy pills from. The white ones were what I was taking and had no side effects. Now they are blue or pale pink. When I take them I get very sick, headache, throwing up and nausea. My pharmacy will not order white ones for me. How can I find out name of where I can get white ones ? PLEASE Help Me. Thanks Brenda ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Have you tried other pharmacies in your area? They may carry the others, or be willing to order them in for you. Can you ask your current pharmacy the name of the manufacture of the white ones, so you know which you're looking for?

Price gouging pharmasies
How do Barclay Pharmacy get away with charging $1200.00 for 150 pills of Roxiecodone???!!! And $500.00 for 180 pills of Methadone??!! ## Supply and demand. There is nothing that makes them charge less. When supplies are short, they can charge as they please. Generics are supposed to be cheaper, but sometimes things happen that change that such as a shortage in raw materials. 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 there anything else I can help with?

help identifying capsules
someone gave me some big white capsules that has no numbers on them just two small black strips on each side of the pill it has powder in it and someone told me that it was either oxycodone or oxycontine 80mg has anyone ever seen these pills in that form? ## They aren't manufactured U.S. prescription medications, those are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. The only way you get Oxycodone like this in the U.S. would be if it was made by a compounding pharmacy, which makes no sense, because that dosage is available, so a doctor wouldn't have to order it that way. This is most likely just some over the counter product of some type. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone recognize this?

Amoxicillin 500
I have a tooth ache (wisdom tooth) possible infection on mandibular left quadrant. I got amoxicillin 500 GG849. Just wondering if it's safe to take. The capsule is a orangey tanish color.

v 5 325
I'm getting the headaches too. Started taking them after I broke my leg. Mine are white oval with red speckles. Big V on one side, 3604 on the other. ## The drug is a generic form of Norco 5/325. It contains 5mg hydrocodone and 325mg of Tylenol. It is also classified as a schedule 3 controlled substance with abuse potential. ## Hi Curt, Sorry to hear about your recent challenges with this medication. According to the MayoClinic, headaches are actually listed as a general side effect of Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone. However, if you find that the symptoms are becoming too bothersome or severe, it may just be best to talk with your doctor about trying some other alternatives for pain relief. To my understanding, side effects like this usually don't go away until you stop taking what...

How it work in woman's body.i loose my get sage. And I could make my breast normal at least. ## Hello, Shahnaz! How are you? Your breasts will change and lose firmness with age, that is normal and there's not much you can do to change it. It can also happen due to weight loss, since much of your breast is actually fat. Are your periods normal? Have you been experiencing any changes to them or irregularities?

Can a pharmacist formulate manually
Is it possible for pharmacist to provide powdered Rx if tablets no longer manufactured? Some of the old time pharmacists still concoct some Rx, although I'm only familiar with them doing cremes. The capsules are useless, as is Fioricet, and I've taken tablets for 25 years. I have even tried Fioricet along with additional aspirin, but no relief. Is there any recourse to get these tablets manufactured in labs again? Tried many things with no relief. ## Hello, Darlene! How are you? Yes, this can be done by compounding pharmacies. Basically, they keep powdered forms of drugs on hand and put them into capsules, as per the dosage your doctor orders. This can still be done for almost any medication, as long as it hasn't been pulled from the market due to health dangers. Is there an...

There use to be a long list of warnings about this drug. But Stopped. Many people were passing info along. My story and all should know. Wife died with lung fibrosis N0v 14.2010 due to long term use of 2 years, Had no warnings from urologist about the side affects, Just found this site. I was able to warn many others about use and sure I saved lives. Please people pass the word along and search the terrible problems...not that rare, ## Hello, Bob! How are you? I am so very sorry for your loss. And thank you for posting this warning for others. People should always research every medication they're given and be fully informed of the possible risks that may be associated with them. Not everyone experiences a bad outcome, but it can happen.
