first time user of 2.5 cialis

I am 60, received first prescription for cialis 2.5 mg, Dr advised daily use Taken at the same time every day but then instructions advise taking 30 to 60 min before intercourse. Instructions say med may last up to 36 hours. 1. then why take every day? 2. what can I expect and how soon after taking first dose? I have not taken any yet. ## Hello, Max! How are you? I'm sorry about the confusion. This dosage of Cialis has been approved by the FDA to be taken daily. It's been found that some men achieve better results taking it daily, as compared to taking it only when intercourse is planned, it can also help with spontaneity. Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, stuffy nose and priapism. Is there anything else I can help with?

Can side effects of gabapentin be similar to dementia?
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking gabapentin and lamictal for bipolar for about 2 years. I am very sensitive to medications so my doses have had to be cut back a few times. I do not take what a "normal" dose would be as I do not tolerate it well. I am having trouble with my memory. I am concerned about my medication doing this. I have sometimes forgotten names or what I did the past few days or a week ago. I get confused over things that should not confuse me. I have lost interest in doing my hobbies. Please let me know if it is possible side effect? ## Hello, Nancy! How are you? The FDA classifies both of these medications as anticonvulsants that can also be used to help with some mood disorders and virtually all such medications are known to cause similar issues. They also tend to worsen the...

How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone so i dont go into precipitated withdrawals? ## You have to be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, before you can safely take Suboxone. Learn more Suboxone details here. The precise time that happens can vary from person to person, depending on their own body, how much of the given drug(s) they were taking and other factors. It's a very fine line, because taking it too soon can throw you into withdrawals, but you have to be full in them, before it's safe. Are there any other questions or comments? ## how long does it take oxycodone to be metabolized by the body after taking 10 mgs one time. ## I'm taking suboxone can I take a 15 mg of morphine I took it befor the sub and only asking because I still ne...

is flexeril an anti inflammatory
1 Reply RSS
wisted my knee and I'm having severe pain and swelling. Will flexeril help ease this pain so I can sleep? ## Hello, Shoshimom! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. According to the FDA, Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine and is classified as a muscle relaxant, so it likely won't help much. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Some cold compresses and Ibuprofen, may help, if your doctor approves. Have you contacted your doctor, yet? Any time you have swelling like that, you should have it checked out.

hydro and tramadol
1 Reply RSS
Does 50mg of tramadol potentiate 20mg hydro (2 10's) ## Hello Badkitty! How are you? No, they are not known to potentiate each other. According to the FDA, substances that may potentiate a narcotic include medications, such as Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen and Aspirin. 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?

My KEPPRA has always been Yellow with H88 on it now my KEPPRA is White Oblong with M615 on it I have had 3 Seizures since taking the White Oblong. Can you please tell me the difference is and which Brand is Generic? ## Hello, Darlene! How are you? I'm sorry about the seizures you've been experiencing. These medications are listed as containing 500mgs of Levetiracetam, so both are generics for Keppra. Sometimes, seizures can still occur, while taking a medication to prevent them, but it is very unusual that you would suddenly have 3, when given the new tablets. According to the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic medication to the next, they are allowed to different by as much as plus or minus 20% and ...

sulfamethoxazole tmp ds tablet side effects
5 Replies RSS
I had a pillar cyst removed from the back of my head and the wound got infected, so the doctor prescribed this med to clear it up. Wow! I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life, but this drug knocked me for a loop. I thought I had the stomach flu one day--kept trying to throw up, diarrhea, stiff neck, headache, feverish, affected my vision. I slept the entire day. I stopped taking the med because my stomach wouldn't tolerate anything. The next day, I started to feel better, so started back on the med and the symptoms came back with a venegaence--. that's when I looked up the side effects and called the doctor. I got into the shower after that and noticed I had a horrible rash all over the upper part of my body. It's been almost 24 hours since I stopped ta...
