Losartan Hctz 100 25 Mg
5 Replies RSS
My first perscription for Losartan/HCTZ 100-25mg last month the pill was teardrop and yellow. I just had it refilled and the pill is retanguler, white, and has ZD 19 stamped on it. I think the pharmacy made a mistake. I have not taken them. Please advise!!!!!!! ## No, they haven't made a mistake, this tablet also contains 100mgs of Losartan and 25mgs of Hydrochlorothiazide, which are commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. It is common for a pharmacy to switch, depending on whatever company is offering the cheapest price, at the time they have to restock their supply. It's how they keep their prices as low as possible, for their customers that don't have insurance. Since this is a generic medication, it is manufactured by several different ...

metoprolol withdrawal
407 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

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...

Pain Management in East Texas
8 Replies RSS
Who is the best pain management doctor in the Beaumont area? We just moved from Austin, and after calling around, can't find a good one. For starters, they all tell you right off the bat they don't prescribe Oxycodone. What? Why reject a drug before you even know a patient's history or what kind of results they've had with it. Why does every pain doc in Beaumont have this asinine attitude, and what alternatives do they offer? (I am already on Fentanyl patches, with a spinal stimulator, and that does not control the pain). I'd prefer someone who takes Blue Cross Blue Shield. ## The reason you're getting that attitude is because when someone calls asking for a specific medication, doctors have been taught to view that as drug seeking behavior and they'll tell y...

round white pill with red speckles cant figure out imprint
2 Replies RSS
Imprint is so&f. Or sq&f. The second letter faded so hard to tell. Can't figure out what this is. Anybody know? ## Hello, Purplessance! How are you? I've done some searching, but I'm not finding anything that matches this description, the tablets I've found with speckles in the prescription drug databases are all oblong, not round. Where did you find it? It may be an over the counter product and some of those are regional, so knowing the general location may help to narrow it down. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else know what this is? ## I found the same pill in my sons drawer. The imprint is Sc & f and I can't find it on any pill ID page. I'm going to look up companies with those initials next. Did ...

Does anyone know if there is such a generic??

Sounds like something over the counter. ## yes it is 10mg.. i have some in my hand right now! ## I know it's used for pain, but it gives you that bared out feeling/ drunken feeling.
