cilift and bromazapam with alcoholBr
Hi i'm currently on Cilift 20mg and bromazapam. Is it safe to drink in moderation while using these drugs. I still get anxiety attacts, should it not have stopt now tha i am on these medication? ## Hello, Elsabe! How are you? How long have you been taking these medications? That could be a factor in why you're still having anxiety. It can take about 4 to 6 weeks, before they reach their full level of effectiveness in the body, so if it's been less than that, you may need to give it more time. If it's been longer, then you may need a dosage adjustment or to try different medications. The issues with alcohol are two-fold, one is that it can potentiate the side effects, so you may get a lot more drowsy, dizzy and nauseous than usual, basically each drink will hit you as if ...

Levothyroxine side effects
I was recently diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. I have been taking levothyroxine for almost two weeks. For the last four or five days I have had a weird feeling. It is hard to explain. I don't really feel dizzy but I get a strange feeling in my head. I guess you would describe it as a head rush. Has anyone else had this feeling and will it go away as my body adjusts to the levothyroxine? ## yes i would get that every morning after i took my pills and drank coffee. I think its inmortant to eat a little over an hour after to avoid the dizziness. It does go away though. ## Levothyroxine Info and Side effects Click Here ## my pharmactist changed my thyroid pills because my insurance doesn't cover my other ones. I am cold all the time again and i am dizzy. I came home from work...

Dexedrine Missing?
I was told by several Pharmacies that Dexedrine & the generic is NOT available, (on manufacturer back order, etc.), Does anyone have/not have the same problem? Please advise ## There have been a couple of other posts about this problem recently. Unfortunately, the only thing that anyone can really suggest as a solution would be for you to contact your doctor and see if there is an alternative medication you can use in the meantime. Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## I have read that the manufacturer should have all back orders filled by end of June. I had to call no less than 25 Pharmacies yesterday to fill my prescription, hopefully next months will be easier. ## I have used the Barr Dextroamphetamine for many years. I take 15mg 3x/day. I have always gotten my rx filled at...

Just finished 6 month treatment a few days ago, WTF is going on ???
I did well all the way thru my treatement until now when I'm just done. I'm having clear bright colorful dreams while I'm wide awake, I'm seeing sparkles of bright vibrant colors when I close my eyes and my thoughts are actual images I can see in my mind, I can literally see what I'm thinking. I have this constant smell that won't go away, my ears are ringing, my head feels like it's about to explode, I'm cramping in my abdomen, legs and back, my stomach is hurting so bad.

teal-green and white capsule no markings brown powder inside
I'm trying to find out what these pills are. There are no numbers or markings on the capsule ## Hello, Neal! How are you? I'm sorry, but without any markings, it is going to be difficult to determine what they contain with any certainty. We can rule them out as being a U.S. prescription product, since they are all require to have markings to enable their identification. Compounding pharmacies sometimes do specially ordered medications, but they use plain capsules, in most cases. That means that this is most likely and over the counter product, which leaves it open to many possibilities. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this capsule? ## I also have found a zip-loc bag with this type of pill. Green/White capsule conta...

Adderal 30mg Generic Which Is Better The Orange Oval Or The Pink Round
Is there a difference in the potency of the generic oval orange 30mg and the generic round pink 30 mg? ## Hi Wendy, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. However I do want to mention that certain "inactive" ingredients (which may or may not be present in each brand) are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug and same dosage). I hope this info helps! Have you had a chance to take either of them yet? ## I have taken both the oval orange and the round pink 30mg generic adderall's. I prefer the pink ones but i"m having a...

small blue pill k 9
Small round blue pill with the imprint of K 9 on one side and nothing on the other side. ## This tablet appears to be new to the market, as I can't find a listing, but someone else has posted that they recieved it as a 30mg Oxycodone tablet. This is a very potent narcotic pain reliever. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You can read more here: Does anyone else have more information? ## Yes, that pill you are describing is oxycodone 30 mg. I was just prescribed that medication today and that's exactly what the pill looks like. I've never seen this type before either but I heard elsewhere while doing a search that a new manufacturer was approved this past August/September which is probably why it's difficult to find anything o...

lactic acid gout
osteoarthritis pain from lactic acid ## Hello, Jules! How are you? What condition are you asking about? It seems you're confusing several. Osteoarthritis is completely different from gout and the latter would involved uric acid. What have you been diagnosed with? NSAIDs can be used to treat osteoarthritis, unless one's health prohibits such, but gout often requires something to reduce the uric acid.

can a person using lasixs and plenish k take urispas
my mother is eighty four and her ankles swell she is on lasix and plenish k but she gets up about every half an hour at night to go to toilet but sometimes nothing comes out and she says that when she gets back to bed that her bladder is full. she has got an endicrone seal or something. Can she take urispas with the lasix and plenish k and how much fluid should she drink a day? ## Hello, Barbara! How is your mother doing? Rather than adding another medication on your own, your mother needs to discuss this with her doctor. Retaining fluid like that can be very dangerous and could lead to congestive heart failure, which may put her life at risk. At her age, this just isn't something worth trying to treat yourself. What dose does she take of the Lasix?

5 mg butrans patch
Hi there, I've been looking online for information on how to get off the butrans patch (5mg) I have been on now for about 3 years. I was placed on this due to a spinal infection and the lingering affects due to nerves thereof - a general diagnosis has been possible lyme/west nile - whatever it is/was - I am still (4 yrs. later numb from the knees down - numbness is intermittent and moves about from knees down to feet). Still on a walker as whatever this was took out my left leg in particular however my right leg is fine. It's been a trip - but I'll beat it - darn if I won't. All said, though and back to topic - has anyone any suggestions on how to "get off" this butran's patch - the lowest dose ? Can I just take the darn thing off and ride it out or is this d...

Axiron application
All The Axiron Literature Says To Apply It Only Underarms. Why? Doesn't Other Skin Areas Absorb the liquid? ## Hello, Ron! How are you? The skin there is generally thinner, so more will be absorbed and that is also a safer place to use it in order to prevent its transfer to other people, since it can cause problems for women and children. Is there anything else I can help with?

white capsule plain no marks suspect it is oxycodone
Swim's pal came across some white capsules that had no markings at all, just about as long as abe's head on a penny, and a little more than three pennies girth-wise. Swim's capsules contained extremely fine white powder and swim was told that said capsules are roxy 30mg. Trusting what swim's pal had told him, swim opened the capsule, tasted the powder (finest grain powder swim has ever come across mind you) and it was the unmistakable taste of oxycodone, only less of the bitter bite was noticeable. After some consideration and careful preparation, swim insufflated half of what was inside, and immediately noticed that it was in fact, an opiate. Swim then insufflated the other half of the powder and waited for the heavier effects. Swim says that the taste is REMARKABLY les...

White Oblong Pill With Ex Imprint Found In My Lortab Bottle

Excedrin Migraine is used in the treatment of pain/fever and migraines. It belongs to the drug class: analgesic combinations. Learn More: Acetaminophen + ASA + Caffeine Details I hope this helps! ## Not Exedrin Migraine, they have just an E on those.
