tramadol amneal vs mylan
20 Replies RSS
all our pharms here have switched to amneal.doesnt do a thing except give a headache. brand does make a differance.the mylan works great. ## Yes, there can be differences in generic medications. Once a medication is available to be made a generic, it is allowed to differ, in the active ingredient, from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20%. The FDA considers this an acceptable therapeutic window. The problem that you can run into, of course, is that generics do not have to measure against each other, just against the name brand. This means that while one generic may be high quality and contain 100mgs of a given medication, another generic may only contain 80mgs and another could contain 120mgs. Not everyone is sensitive to such changes and most people don't even notice, how...

Which antibiotic is best for gum/sinus infection?
2 Replies RSS
I'm having problems with painful gums and sinus swelling, pressure and pain. Probable TMJ. Before I try to see a dentist (I have no dental ins), which antibiotic should I ask my doctor to prescribe to clear up the infection? I know she will know, but I like to know before I ask. Thank you for any advice. ## Hello, Mimi! How are you? TMJ is not due to an infection and antibiotics will not treat it. TMJ is due to a problem in the jaw joint that causes pain and inflammation and it needs to be treated totally differently to reduce the inflammation and prevent the problem from recurring and worsening. Thus, you need to consult your dentist for proper treatment, if it is TMJ. An antibiotic will only treat a bacterial infection and there isn't any particular one that would be better th...

Can this medication affect the liver in anyway ? ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? Most medications are processed through your liver, so yes. Though, it is very rare for it to cause any problems. However, when most people are taking it for a long period of time, their doctors will do liver and kidney function tests to monitor and make sure they aren't developing any problems. This medication is most commonly used to help lower high blood pressure and treat certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, hypotension and dehydration. Is there anything else I can help with?

can I take bactrim ds 800 160 tab for ear infection?
1 Reply RSS
I'm having pain in my right ear n also pressure and I can't hear, it's like I hear echo. Sometimes when I swallow saliva my pain comes really bad. ## Hello, Yoli! How are you? Yes, this is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is used to treat various types of bacterial infections. However, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor has confirmed that you have an infection and instructed you to take it, because taking it when it is not appropriate creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

take one pill 3 times a day AS NEEDED

I'M TAKING CYCLOBENZAPR 10MG TAKE 1 TABLET 3 TIMES A DAY AS NEEDED. NOW IF MY PAIN GETS WORSE BEFORE MY MED IS DO CAN I TAKE ONE EARLIER ## Hello, Tony! How are you? No, you shouldn't take it earlier than the prescribed dosing schedule. This isn't an analgesic, anyway, so it really won't help with pain like that. The FDA classifies this as a muscle relaxant, so it helps relieve the pain associated with strains, sprains and spasms. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. If you need something else for pain, you should speak to your doctor about what you can take. Is there anything else I can help with?

1 month on Methadone
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking anywhere from 5 to 10 mg of methadone a day for about 1 month. I only take it once a day, and at the same time every day (at night before bed) for back pain. If I stop taking it cold turkey at this point, will I experience withdrawals? ## Yes, you will most likely still experience some withdrawal effects, such as nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea and rebound pain, as listed by the FDA. Methadone is very well known to be habit forming and to cause withdrawals, that's why many people that take t for addiction treatment end up requiring a lifetime maintenance dose of it and never truly end up drug free. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor?

not clearing up rash
1 Reply RSS
I'm almost done with day 3 of the 4mg and my rash isn't getting any better. Should I give it more time or try something else? ## Hello, DL! How are you? It may take awhile longer, so you should finish your course of treatment with it and then, if it doesn't clear up, consult your doctor. The FDA classifies this medication as a steroid and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, weight gain, fluid retention, insomnia and nervousness. Is there anything else I can help with?

Dentist kept my prescription.
1 Reply RSS
My dentist prescribed me 5 vicodin pills for a procedure. I went to the pharmacy to fill them and followed their directions. Ended up taking only 3 out of the 5 and they kept rest (which I found weird) that I had to pay for. Anyone know why? ## Hello, Jd05! How are you? Unless you're under a pain management contract that requires a pill count, then you don't have to take pills with you, so they may have thought you were turning them in to be disposed of, which is usually why people do that. Did you ask them about it? The FDA classifies this medication as being 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.

private methadone doctors in dallas, texas or tyler, texas
1 Reply RSS
Can anyone please help me!!! I need to find a private doctor in tyler or dallas texas that prescribes methadone. I cant make it to the clinic everyday and I need help with my opiate addiction. I found suboxone doctors but they are too expensive. Please help ## Hello, Sherri! How are you? I'm sorry, but for addiction treatment, a clinic is your only option. It would be illegal for a private doctor to prescribe it for you. It is only allowed to be given in a clinical setting by those that are specially trained in its use. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. I wish I had better news for you, but I'm afraid this is the way it stands ...
