generic adderall 20 mg
I recently got my generic adderall filled from a new pharmacy. The bottle says its amphetamine 20 mg tab MAL. It has a 20 on one side of the pill with four partial scores and the other side has an M inside a box. The pill is 8 sided. The pill doesn't have the potency my previous pills have does anyone have any info on thi particular pill? ## I am having the same problem.I filled my adderall from my Pharmacist I always go to.. I cannot find any real defined reason of why the sudden change and Pharmacist never said anything?? The potency is not the same dosage I have been on. ## Have any of you asked your pharmacist to replace them with a different brand? ## If I'm not mistaken, the label that says 'MAL' on it is referring to the generic amphetamine + dextroamphetamine sal...

Zoloft brain tours
I am on 200 mg per day and it has been an excellent solution for me. I was experiencing severe anxiety attacks due to a life situation, it eliminated that. 2 sides effects: decreased libido and tremors. One fascinating effect: I call them "brain tours". They happen when sleeping at night or dozing in the chair. My body will be absolutely asleep but my brain is 100% awake and alert. I can hear other people' s conversations and remember them, I confirmed it the next day. One night I made up a nonsense word during a tour, I thought if it was a dream I'd forget the word because I forget dreams. I still know the word, flibberpeanut. During tours i cannot move my body, like in REM sleep. The first few times it scared me but now it is fascinating. I use these tours to explore t...

Why is Klor Con so expensive
KDur or Klor Con has been around for many many years but still is very expensive. It is more costly than some newer meds that do not have generics. How is this possible? Is this a question of greed on the part of pharmacies. This is a frequently ordered drug.

Obgyn ran tests today on Liver Function. Ugh stressed.
Hi all! I went to the Obgyn today and she sent my blood work off for routine testing which includes my liver levels. I am prescribed this medication, Norco 7.5/325 for degenerative disc disease. I do drink alcohol about 2-3x/week average of 8-10 units/week but always the day before or the day after taking norco. I have never drank alcohol and taken norco on the same day and I always wait close to 24 hours between last drink & dose or vice versa. I freak out about my liver a lot but my neck is in so much pain I try to forget about it. Now the gynecologist sent off these tests and I'm going to have to face the music, although I'm really not ready to. I have been taking Norco regularly (i.e. on the days that I don't drink) since 9/2013 so about 10 months. I usually take 2/day

Thankful for Chantix
I had took Chantix about 3 months ago and successfully was able to quit. So many people I've suggested it to have all of these excuses why they can't stop smoking or are worried about the side effects of others. I had absolutely no side effects I felt like throwing up 3 or 4 times for maybe a second but then it passed. I had virtually no side effects this is an amazing product. I smoked for almost half my life and I was able to quit within 2 weeks. Thank you ## I am on day 4 with the champix and find myself a bit afraid of taking the leap to a better non smoking me. Smoking has been a constant in my life for 23 years. I've never been successful in quitting before but am hopeful to quit now. I know that the emotional attachment is going to be the most difficult to overcome. M...

qualitest hydrocodone acet 10 325 yellow with a v and 36 01
What is the difference between qualitest brand Hydrocodone/Acet 10/325 with a V on one side and 36 01 on the other side of this yellow pill, as opposed to Mallinckrodt white pill with the same strength? The Mallinckrodt pills give me lots of bad side effects and do not help my pain as well as the Qualitest ones do. ## I also got my yellow 10/325's switched to the Mallinckrodt white by RiteAid. I have severe chronic pain and the white ones don't have much effect. How do I find the yellow ones? Thanks Denise

All of of a sudden this medicine is disappeared/discontinued by the manufacturer. I cannot get it from any place. Where I can get a ndc '109' medicine..? Any other manufacturer? My normal life depends on it. Please let me know. ## I have been on carbamazepine 200mg tabs since it was first introduced. I went to pick up a new refill only to find a different drug in its place.

xanax yellow oval 901 S screw up lol
I just made the mistake got prescribed Xanax 0.5 mgs have to take it twice a day, and I typed in 106 s at first and was confused, I just realized now it was upside down lol, this is a good site to find out anything though about any pill, thanks for everyone's input. ## Hi Stefanie, No worries about the typo! I was actually still able to identify your oval yellow pill for what it truly is, and that's a 0.5 mg generic Alprazolam tablet; better known by its brand name Xanax. Apparently this one is manufactured by a company called Dava Pharma and carries a National Drug Code of 67253-0901. Please post back anytime you need help finding something! There's a lot of frequent visitors here who are more than willing to help.

I've had trouble with my since I was very young. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was in 4th grade. Now my curve has worsened, 52 degrees curved. Plus my disks are crumbling. They don't want to do surgery due to my age and the complications associated with the surgery. They have told me there's nothing they can do for me. I am taking Cymbalta, Celebrex, Lyrica, Tizadine, Tramadol 200 my time release pill. I am having really pain more so than ever due to the curve. I'm trying to force myself to stand up with out looking pathetic. I can't cope with this any longer. I don't want to fight to get on a pain pill which would help me. maybe my blood pressure would not be high. My med Dr will not prescribe narcotics. I respect her decision. She's told me there...

Wellbutrin and brand names
Do pay attention to the company brand names. I've been on Sandoz brand for years with no problem. In fact, I was doing pretty good. Then my pharmacy closed or retired. The new pharmacy sent me Mylan brand, a blue color with an M non it. They make me lethargic and doped. So generic companies ingredients are not all exactly the same. ## I started taking the blue pill by mylan a week ago and do not like it. It makes me irritable, dizzy, anxious. I was taking the generic brand by Watson before that for 2 weeks and I felt great. Not waking up depressed or feeling down. ## @Just Wanted to Help, You are right, inactive ingredients are not always exactly the same in generics as well as other brand names. It has come to my understanding that they can also have an affect on bioavailability, m...

I have been prescribed the fentanyl patch and have found that it is very expensive for me. does Pricara have a patients assisstance program to help me continue with this prescription? my Doctor suggests I ask directly to the company. here i am! HELP ## Hi LMS, please note that we are not a drug company, nor do we manufacture, sell, or distribute any products. Our site is strictly informational.

white oblong pill a333 what is it
yeah it is supposed to be a percocet but feels more like a hydrocodone to me ## I agree. It feels like a hydrocodone to me too. It doesn't work nearly as well as the generic Watson 932 I have been taking for pain. ## The pill marked "A333" is in fact listed as generic Percocet (10/325), but I think many others would agree with you that its effects aren't quite up to par with what you would normally expect from this medication. Ever since Actavis bought out Watson, there seems to have been a downgrade in the sheer potency/efficacy of all their pain medications. The FDA also allows a pretty significant variability (20-25%) of the amount of active ingredients found in generic medications. So one scenario could be that Actavis is taking advantage of that and putting the lowe...

what is r 333 white oblong pill
This is supposed to be Percocet??? Very concerned. ## Apparently someone else who was looking for this same exact pill on another thread, said it was supposed to be a Percocet 10/325mg tablet. However, I understand that the imprint has an R and not an A. It's just the only relative match that I found is "A333" on a white oblong (capsule-shaped) tablet. Makes me wonder if the manufacture simply made a mistake on a good batch of their pills? You could try calling the U.S. Customer Relations for Actavis at +1 (800) 272-5525. Maybe they can confirm whether or not it's truly one of their own. I hope this helps! Does anyone else recognize this pill? ## The "R" looks like an "A" after the 333. It is a Percocet.

Is this normal to take this med for 5 yrs? I really never even knew she had adhd? In fact I really dont know why she is taking it or even started. Her phyc. precribed it to her , he also prescribed viibryd which is a ssri. She also takes precocet 10/325 for back pain, i am not sure how many she take, but she has pills located in 3 locations of the house, so she does not always take 4 a day. Then she has a lipoderm patch, and has acess to a fentonal patch also, not sure how much she uses this. Then she takes klonipin to sleep. She does not doc shop, but the vyvanse and the percocet come from2 different docs. I am most comcerned about the vyvanse abuse . It has been a long time .

My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a perc. I take 15mg percs at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals.

Tri- sprintec
I just got a perscription for tri sprintec. Last Thursday was my last day of my cycle Which pill do I start taking now since I already had my cycle? ## Hello, Megan! How are you? You can actually start it at any time, unless your doctor gives some reason why you cannot, but if you start it when you are not on your period, you'll need to use a back up method of protection for the first full 7 days, because it will take that long to become effective and prevent pregnancy. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How do I know if I need sprintec or not and what if I dont what side effects could occur
