bendictine
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...

dangers of mirtazapine
It seems to me that Mirtazapine is a potentially dangerous drug with little information known about it. My veterinarian prescribed this drug in small quantities for my cat as an appetite stimulant, so I began reading articles on the drug and its effects. Although it is supposed to be used as an antidepressant for humans, it has a wide reputation for causing suicidal tendencies in children and young adults. It causes weight gain (the side effect my vet was looking for in my cat's case). It also can cause feelings of depression, and wooziness. I spoke with a nurse who took it and she said the effects of sluggishness and dizziness lasted 2 to 3 days. It can also cause nausea and headaches. It seems to me that these side effects are anything but what a person who is already depressed sh...

anywhere to get tramadol after august 18?
Ive been taking tramadol for aprox 8yrs nonstop other than a 7week break. Ive back problems and my knees are broken down do to years of rough wear and tear on top of many injuries. Ive no health insurance either. Truth b told,i cannot function very well at all without taking the tramadol. So i am checking to see of anyone has any insight or suggestions as to where i may b able to purchase tramadol after the 18th of august which is when tramadol becomes a controlled substance. Im aware that ordering overseas is risky but going without the meds is not an option. I am very worried about the change in classification. I never expected anything like this to happen, had i known and not been ignorant to the possibility of not being able to order tramadol online i would have done something diffe...

Amox Clav 875mg tablets - Almost 4 months on same Antibiotic - Building Resistance?
Hello - My Husband has been taking Amox Clav 875 2 x per day for almost 4 months. He has diabetic pressure ulcers on his feet that are healing very slowly. We are going for a liver transplant in a few months and I am concerned that he could be building up a resistance to this drug? Can that happen? Should I rotate him onto another antibiotic for the next few weeks until this heals? Thank you so much for help!!! ## Hello, Michelle! How are you and your husband? It would be best to continue taking the one that has been prescribed by his doctor. It is later, such as when he has surgery, that they will be concerned with using a different one, if an antibiotic is needed. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything ...

find pharmacy that carries oxycodone b ti30 mg
I need to fill my prescription i need to find a pharmacy asap. ## In order to find out whether or not a pharmacy in your area has it in stock, you'll need to physically go to the pharmacy, with your prescription in hand. If you call, they have no way of knowing if the person on the phone is a legitimate customer with a need or a potential thief, so they won't provide you with an honest answer. 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. What is your general location? Perhaps if you post back with this information, someone will know of one in your area that has it in stock.

should i start lo loestrin fe the first day of my cycle or..
Could I start before my cylce or is it better to wait till the first day ?? ## Hello, Annie! How are you? There is no hard and fast rule, but what you need to know is that if you start it on the first or second day of your period, then you will be immediately protected against pregnancy. However, if you start it at any day later in your cycle, you'll need to take it for a full 7 days, before it becomes effective, so you will have to use some other form of contraception, until the 8th day of taking them. Is there anything else I can help with?

I just recently went to a dermatology and prescribed me with this sulfameth trimethoporim 800 160 .. my mom is concerned that the qty is for 60 days. Is this too much ? ## Hello, Bud! How are you? Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for acne that is resistant to other treatments, since it has been sound that some of it is bacterial in nature. They are usually prescribed for 2 months, or more. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

How often can oxycodone be filled?
I have been on oxycodone and methadone for 9 yrs. because of 2 failed back surgeries. My doctor moved down the street and the new nurse says if they where filled 8/20 then can not be filled until 9/20. She said her computer wouldn't let her fill it sooner and the doctor would lose his license if he filled it to soon. I take them exact therefore I'll be out. Yet the pharmacist said she could call to have them fill it sooner. Does anybody know what the government says? so I can go back to the doctor with something. I have a feeling he doesn't know what she is doing. Maybe to lazy to look into a program that's screwed up? ## Can be filled 30 days apart. The computer must be wrong because if they were filled on 8/20, 30 days would be 9/18. There are 31 days In August. ## The...

fake white round pill rx 497 norco
I don't think my Norco is real. It does not feel like it is working and I am having w/d symptoms. It's small, white and round. The markings are RX 497. I've heard that fake pills are making it into the states from overseas and I think mine is fake. Has anyone else experienced this problem? ## Hello, JBT! How are you? This tablet is listed as containing 10mgs of Hydrocdone and 325mgs of Acetainophen. 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. Were you taking a different one, before? There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients from one generic to another, so this one may be slightly lower than the prior one that you were tak...

Blisters on the lips, very sore tongue and blisters on genital area. ## Hi Rhonda,what is the dose you are taking and it would be to your benifit to ask your doctor for a different medication or if it were me I would only take half a dose at a time every 4 to 6 hours. ## I am not sure if you are going to get a response, since this post was made in 2007.

tramadol 50 mg
Hello all. I usually take vicodin when I have bad back pain, but wanted to try something that wouln't knock me out. I asked my Dr about tramadol and he said he'd only prescribe one or the other. Long story short I ordered online and got green and orange capsules in a blister pack from zenlabs. The pack says the drug is zendol-50, containing 50mg of tramadol. It was produced for zenlabs Canada in India. Now, these are very different than the little white pills I'm used to seeing. I took 3 last night (never taken that much before) and didn't feel much of anything. Can anyone help tell me if i'm taking some unknown drug or the real thing? Like most Indian meds, there is no imprint on the pill itself. ## Sorry, without an imprint it is impossible to postiviely identify w...

Was badly addicted to hydrocodone/oxycodone/percocet for 7 years. Am now free thanks to buprenorphine(Suboxone).
Not real sure why exactly it is that I feel it necessary to post here in this forum. Maybe I'm hoping that someone looking for help will read this and make the same decision myself and my husband did. 7 years ago I was introduced to the joys and wonderous feelings of pain pills. Always working in the restuarant industry as a server/ bartender, the high I got from taking tabs or percs or whatever I could get my hands on led me to believe that I was a better server, better at my job, made more money, could talk to people more openly and be a happier person all around. At first, like the beginning 3 years I would take 1 to 3 lortab 10 mg in one day and be hopping around all over the place till the wee hours of the morning, talking everyone's head off and energized to the max. As th...
