19 Replies RSS
I have taken metformin 500mg tabs Sandoz for years today when I picked up my medicine they gave me metformin 500 mg tab zyd. What is the difference in the two? ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Sandoz and Zydus are just the manufacturers, so that's the only difference based on what you've posted. Your pharmacy is just carrying one that's been manufactured by a different company. Learn more Metformin details here. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## that just happened to me also, i went from the sandoz to the zyd (metformin 500mg) , the zyd is bigger and ive been on it a couple weeks, ever since they switched, (same pharmacy,(walmart) same drugest) so why the 2 different pills?..back to my comment, ever since they switched me to this bigger pill ive had a hard time going ...

can i mix 031 alprazolam with teva 833 clonazepam?
3 Replies RSS
can i mix 031 alprazolam with teva 833 clonazepam? If so what will happen and what more can I do? ## You should not be mixing Benzodiazepines at all? Similar to having a glass of Pepsi & Coke with dinner, both are highly addictive! ## From what I've read, according to a number of different drug interaction checkers, there aren't any contraindications when it comes to combining these two different Benzo medications. Reason being I'm guessing, is probably because they are of the same drug class and therefore have a similar pharmacology. The primary difference would likely be found in the overall efficacy of each drug. I wouldn't be one to try it, especially without your doctor's consent; but at the same time I haven't come across any specific details or evidenc...

where can i find them and are they worth it, are they safe, or is there something better? ## They do have a website, if you do a google search. However, they do not list the exact ingredients, they just claim it is 100% natural. That said, these types of products are not actually proven to help with anything. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## These are a natural product, but a toxic one. T. thevetiodes is the botanical name for yellow oleander, considered to be a highly toxic plant. It is hard to get info on what a dangerous dose is, but there have been deaths. Do a Google search and you will get some more detailed information. ## i have been on them for about 8 months. they work very well, no side effects, except for cleansing of your fat cells. ## how much weight have you ...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
323 Replies RSS
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

subutex 54 over 411 what pharmacies has the kind i can take cannot teva
2 Replies RSS
I cannot take the teva brand subutex it stops my period for 5 to 7 months I cannot take suboxone with naloxone it stops my period. The only brand that I can take is 54/411 . After taking the subutex my period started after 5 months. Thats the only kind that I can take. Where can I find the 54/411. In Virginia phrarmacies the 54/411. ## Hello, Breeze7777! How are you? Unless you're trying to get pregnant, there is no harm in skipping your period, as long as you regular pap smears are normal. So, it's really nothing to worry about. As to which pharmacy carries that one, I'm sorry, but there is no database that lists which medication from which manufacturer that any given pharmacy carries. The FDA lists this medication as being a narcotic analgesic that is most often used to tr...

watson 853 fake
12 Replies RSS
I recently got a few white watsons imprint 853 on them and a few people have told me these are fake! They said if they break easily and taste like chalk tear are fake!? They made my dad real sick! ## Yes got some a few days ago break easily and doesn't desolve in water ## @Boo, Watson 853 is actually reported to be a legitimate medication made by Watson Pharmaceuticals (now known as Actavis). So as long as your doctor prescribed them I wouldn't necessarily question their legitimacy. The idea about them coming off as being fake is quite common though, ever since Actavis changed the formula from the original yellow version. They say that only the yellow dye was removed, but this clearly isn't the case when countless other patients have reported their ineffectiveness. Now these...

24 Replies RSS
has anyone tried this antibiotic is it real does it work? ## IS IT A HISPANIC ANTIBIOTIC IS IT LEGAL ## Yes, I know Ampitrexyl. Its a natural antibiotic from chinese and indian herbs. It's very effective, so much that after using it on my daughters. my wife and myself, I'm now selling it at my natural health store. ## Yes, it works! I take it when my throat is scratchy and Im about to get strep! ## From what I've been able to find, Ampitrexyl is the name of a company that manufacturers natural herbal remedies that are available over the counter. They do make one that's listed as being a natural antibiotic, but I haven't found any specific information on what it contains. Does anyone else know more about it? ## Its label says Miami FL 33014 (prescription for antibioti...

Im worried im hooked again
1 Reply RSS
I first started popping half a 2mg xanax about once a day when i was 12 almost 13 and i kept needing more so i went up to about 15 2mg xanax a week when i was 13 to 14. After that addiction mess i got better but have been relapsing a lot. Now i take 2 2mg pills every other day and im just worried and need advice. Im 14 at the moment ## My Mom used to give me Valium at your age on occasion. Where do you get these? You are playing with fire as Xanax are much more dangerous than they seem. It would be best to rethink taking these, serious problems can occur when withdrawing from them

Doctor says to stop Chlorthalidone 25mg
6 Replies RSS
I am taking multiple medicines for my hypertension. 10mg lisinopril, 50 mg Metroprolol XR and Chlorthalidone 25 mg. In the afternoons, I get very dizzy, have mild chest pain and I have spaced the doses out to determine that it is the Chlorthalidone that is the cause. My cholesterol has also shot up after taking Metroprolol & Chlorthalidone for 4 months. My doctor says it is fine to just stop the Chlorthalidone but I am worried about rebounding edema. I am a 54 year old female. I'm thinking maybe it would be better to wean by skipping one day, then 2 days, then 3 days until I see how I react since this medicine remains in your system so long. Help! I had the sensations in my heart "getting" on this medicine but my doctor told me it was normal. ## Hello, Anita! How are you...

Can different brands of carisoprodol work differently?
51 Replies RSS
I have been using soma/carisoprodol for many years. Usually the paharmacy gives me generic from Watson or Qaulitest. Last time I got the meds it was manufac. by Carimax. It didn't work as well. Do different brands work differently? ## Yes, there can be some differences in generic drugs, the FDA allows a window, of the active ingredient, of up to plus or minus 20% from the name brand product. This can cause variations, where you may, in some rare cases, receive less of a dosage than normal and it may not be as effective. ttp://www.medschat.com/wiki/Carisoprodol/ Do you have any other questions? ## Is there any way to tell by the brand names? That way I could avoid the lesser dosage. ## No, there really isn't, other than by your experience. I wish there was, it would make it easie...
