pink oval pill with imprint 287
I found a pink capsule shaped pill. Its pretty big and its its marked 287 on one side and nothing on the other please fill me in what this is ## @Tyson, The only relevant matches I'm finding are oval pink colored pills, imprinted with "2875" or "2876". There's no other numbers on the backside of each pill, but there is a faint imprint of a heart symbol. These particular pills are identified as an antihypertensive medication known as Avalide; containing hydrochlorothiazide + irbesartan. So I have to ask if there's any chance that the marking may have been misinterpreted due to possible fading/degradation of the pill itself from storage conditions or otherwise? Please post back if you have additional details regarding this and I'll see if I can dig any deep...

Oxycodone Shortage In Florida 2012
Can a pharmacist just be quite and fill the script the doctor ordered for his patient.They lie to us and then fill freds script for the same thing and smile while they do it.We are tax paying citizens in pain and the DEA has made a real mess of everything. Real patients cant even get their meds. ## The whole country seems to be in a sort of bind in so far as normal patients being depicted as addicts and many who are unable to get their scripts filled no matter who they are or what they do. I think petitions such as this one do significantly help; but the real question is, are they even going to do something about these complaints even with all the petitions floating around the net? We should hope so, but knowing our gove...

Side Effect on Xarelto about Weight Gain
I have been on Xarelto for about a month and my weight went up 25 to 30 lbs. Before I was on Xarelto I was taking Warfin and I was gaining any extra weight. I haven't been prescripted nor taken any other medications then the medications that has prescripted to me. I would like to know is there anyone else having this problem. ## Hi Tammy, Even though weight gain is not actually listed as being a possible side effect, I've actually been seeing quite a few posts from other individuals tracing it back to Xarelto as well. Unfortunately I find that in these types of cases, it seems like the only other options are to make more drastic changes to your diet; exercise harder/longer; or just stop taking what's triggering it to begin with. If you don't want to go that route, you ca...

How fast
How fast will the lizness begin to work? I have to go to work and don't want to be running up and down statues all day. ## Hi Gil, While some patients report having bowel movements on the first day from taking Linzess (Linaclotide), others mention that it took up to a few weeks before it really kicked into gear for them. With that said, the only real way to see if it will work for you is by actually trying it and committing yourself to a full course of treatment. I guess you're supposed to take it 30 minutes before eating or drinking in the morning, but I don't know if that has an impact on it's overall effectiveness throughout the rest of the day. The patient prescribing information notes that symptoms of diarrhea often begin within the first 2 weeks of treatment. So I...

blue diazepam 10 mg 2684 v
hi, I was perscribed a pill at the vets office for my dog they say 2684 v and i was told its valium and they look exactly like.the ones the doctor perscribed for me are they?.........tim ## Hi Tim, Just to confirm what your vet said, a round blue pill marked with a "V" on one side and "2684" on the other side (sitting above a score line), reportedly contains 10mgs of Diazepam - otherwise known as Valium. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Qualitest; and this pill also carries a National Drug Code of 00603-3215. Did the vet give you proper dosing instructions for your dog? I don't know how animals react to these kinds of meds in comparison to humans, so I find it odd that they would prescribe your dog the same exact pills designed for human consumption. #...

sticker on back of my prescription paper
greetings all, I have a rx for 1 to 3 tab tid for endocet 10/325. my question is what does it mean when there is a sticker on the back of the rx with a number 1, next to it is a number reading #1, 6202....#2, 2189...#3, 311... under the hand written digits is pre printed wording reads; PLAN: Pt. being seen on a monthly basis for pain management. can anyone tell me why those four and one three digit numbers are on the reverse side of my post dated script???? ## @Swtp, I could very well wrong in assuming this, but it sounds to me like these are simple codes pharmacies use in order to help keep things organized within their own database of prescriptions. With thousands of medications on file, it would probably be a nightmare if you didn't have some sort of way to keep track of them all...

multaq anyone else take it
Okay I will start off by saying this drug scares me because it has not been out for very long. I have Afrial Fib which is not behaving I can be 70 beats one min and regular and the next I will be at 190 and in atrial fib and flutter. this is my last chance at a med I have tried all the others I usually end up in the ER two or three times a week. I have had one ablation so far. If anyone else takes it please let me know what it is like. I am starting it on Tuesday. ## I seem to be in the same situation you are in, however, my heart is rate controlled and have not been in the 190 range while in afib. I just started on this new medication yesterday. I have not experienced any of the side effects so far. I will go to the doctor tomorrow to determine if I can continue on this medication. I h...

Levothyroxine 100 mcg TSH 5.6
Hello, my TSH is 5.68 and doctor prescribed Levothyroxine 100 mcg. Its been 5 days only since I started medicine. I don't have symptoms as of now as its just 5 days but I'm concerned about the dosage of medicine. Is it too high for TSH of 5.6? My free T4 was normal. Doctor has asked for another test after 6-8 weeks. Should I be concerned about my dosage or wait for another test to talk to my doctor? ## Hi Anky, I'm sure your doctor would've had your best interest in mind when he prescribed you a certain dosage based on his evaluation of your condition. So I wouldn't necessarily be overly concerned about it unless you're experiencing some undesirable side effects as a result of taking that dosage. This is just my opinion, but it sounds like you should just wait it...

diazepam tablets i p 10mg tablet by Zepose
The 10mg valium from India is totally legitimate. For me, with high tolerance, they work better than the US drugs. The manufacturer is Zepose. I highly recommend these. They are without imprints yet have scoring on the back so that you can break them into smaller dosages. ## I've always been partial to the idea of having to order my medications over the internet versus obtaining a valid prescription from a doctor. But I am still glad to hear you were able to find a company that carries real medication and not complete fakes. That is a triumph in and of itself, considering all the fraudulent products that are out on the foreign market. I did want to mention though, that Zepose is actually an Indian brand name of Diazepam and not who the manufacturer is as you may have been led to bel...

liquid hydrocodone-Acetamin
I have bottle of liquid hydrocodon-Acetamin 7.5-325/15 & the QTY:150 how many ML EQUALS TO ONE TABLET ## Hello, Mob! How are you? 15, that's what the 7.5-325/15 means on the label, that's the dosage you get in 15mls, 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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? ## 5 mls is 1 teaspoon. 1 teaspoon of this med is 7.5 mg Hydrocodone/325 Acetaminophen. ## if 5 mls is 1 teaspoon, than the 15 would refer to 3 teaspoons equaling the actual dosage of 7.5-325. Am I right or am I right? ## I think Im right, 5mls, 1 teaspoon equals 7.5 mg Hydrocodone/325 Acetaminophen. 3 teas...

klonopin brand name not available
Hi as everyone who takes brand name Klonopin knows its on backorder. I have try the generic it don't work for me.. But that is at the same mg as the Brand. I was wondering if anyone has try the generic at a higher mg? And if so did it work like the brand name? ## Hi Sharon, Sorry to hear that the generic didn't end up working for you. I did want to point something out though that may be the reasoning as to why it's not as effective as the brand name (even at the same milligrams). I think it really comes down to the "inactive/non-medicinal" ingredients that they also put into these tablets. These ingredients are known to vary between brands and generics alike, but I have also heard that companies will often use cheaper binders and fillers in their generic versions to ...

Yellow oval pill with no imprint. Smooth, hard exterior. Probably foreign.
Family member ordered these over the Internet. Packaged in foil wrap. Foil has blue print on back. (Hard to read). Print reads as follows: B. NO. 798027 ## Hi Howard, Looking online, I haven't come across anything with that type of marking. So my guess is that it is probably a foreign or counterfeit medication as you mentioned. When it comes to ordering medications over the internet (especially from overseas), this is just one of those risks that everyone has to deal with. Do you know what this pill was supposed to be, based on your family member's order information? Maybe if we had a lead to go off of, it would at least get us searching in the right direction. I hope this helps!

what kind of pain medicine do they make from marijuana
I have periphial neuropathy my feet hurt all the time nonstop. A friend talked me into trying a few(4) puffs of marijuana and it stopped the pain completely. I live in alabama so it is ilegal. Is there a medication made from it that is legal here? ## Hi Gene, You might be thinking of Cannabidiol (more commonly know as CBD). This aspect of the marijuana plant is legal across all 50 states and has been proven to be useful for pain management without the "high" that comes with THC (another component of the plant/buds). Your best bet would probably be to search online for it, as I noticed several places that have it available. A close family member of mine is actually taking a 50/50 THC/CBD concentrated spray that helps with her nerve pain. I realize you can't get the THC legall...
