Green Nerve Pill
6 Replies RSS
When I was a child in the 1950s, my grandmother would ask me to bring her "nerve pills" to her. They were a bright green capsule. What was the name of this medicine? ## I'm sorry, but that really isn't enough to go on to even make a guess. There were as many green pills on the market back then as there are today. Some medications have been removed from the market, some haven't. What they were used/approved to treat may have also changed, things have switched from being over the counter to prescription and vice-versa. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## My mom was on nerve pills in the late 1950s and we were trying to think of the name earlier this evening. We finally happened on Librium and when I asked her, she said yes, that was it. Looking it up, two of the dosage...

difference between m367 and watson 853
2 Replies RSS
Why do they affect me differently? I can function OK and complete my work outs with M367, but the yellow Watson 853 renders me useless - they just put me to sleep. Aren't they the same ingredients? By the way, the white watson 853, though they take longer to take effect, they work ok. ## Yes, the active ingredients are the same, but there can be slight fluctuations in the amounts from one generic to another, so that may be what's affecting you. Since the one from Watson puts you to sleep, it likely has a slightly higher amount of the Hydrocodone than the other one. Learn more Vicodin details here. Normally, it should improve after a few weeks, once your body has had time to get used to the new amounts. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've been taking hydrocodone 7...

oxycontin damaged my teeth
508 Replies RSS
has anyone else known oxycotin to rot the teeth, i used to be on vicodin until my doctor told me i needed to swith to a morphine based meds she put me on ms contin but i had problems with it so she put me on 80mg oxcontin eventually my body built up a tolerance so she kept raising it, i have am now on from 4-6 per day of the 80mg tabs, it scares me that this is what rotted my teeth because only 5 yrs ago i had only 2 cavaties that needed filling and then only 1 yr after going on the oxycontin i had to have all my top front teeth pulled as they where rotting from the inside out the dentist said my mouth looked like a heroine addicts mouth looks he called it, he said it was shocking to him that normally he only saw such damage from someone who smoked crack or did heroine with so much dent...

h 86 cancer cure
77 Replies RSS
I received the same. It was from HSI (Health Sciences Institute) in an ad for a "free" book titled Miracles From the Vault: Anthology of Underground Cures by Jenny Thompson. It was "free" with a news letter subscription. . . The "infomercial" was vague about most of the "top seven" cures it supposedly detailed. H-86 was the first of them. It supposedly reduces (attacks) cancers but I cannot find any reference to it on the web other than questions. I've found many people on the web asking about this and the others (. . nitric oxide, policosanol, lion's mane mushroom. . ) which are well known but no answers about the H-86. The closest thing I could find was a rabbit derived LHPP antibody but I think this is NOT the substance in question. ## i need d...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
1503 Replies RSS
I'm trying to wean myself off the Fentanyl patch. I went from 75 micro-gms to 50 now I'm on 25. Having a problem and not sure it is related to the decrease in the med. It's been 20 days on the 25 micro-gm and I'm going crazy. I need to keep rocking, moving in any way b/c my body is very restless. Is this a symptom of withdrawal and what do I do? I cannot take it any more. ## Yes, that can be caused by withdrawal, you probably jumped down in dosage a little too fast. This med is very, very strong, 80 times stronger than Morphine and it has a half-life of 17 hours, so that means once you take off the patch, it takes 17 hours until it has dwindled to 50% off the full dose in your body, then it slows and actually takes 3 or 4 days before it is all out of your system. So if y...

generic generic norco ip110
11 Replies RSS
white small oblong ip110 norco. why it doesn't work as good as watson? ## This tablet contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone, a generic for Norco. This tablet is made by Interpharm. As to why it may not work as well as the ones made by Watson, well, it is a generic version of the drug. I know when you are given a generic or read the information pamphlets about them, you are told that they are exactly the same as their name brand counterparts, however, this is done to try to prevent people from being afraid to take needed medications. The truth however, is quite different. Under federal law, generics are allowed to differ in the active ingredient from their name brand counterparst by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%. The FDA considers this an allowable differential tha...

Levipil 500 Mg

I am having shivering problem and doctor advised me to use Levipil 500mg. I am taking it once in a day in afternoon. Can I please know on which part does it works. ## Levipil contains the active ingredient Levetiracetam, which is an anticonvulsant, used to treat seizures, this means it acts on the brain. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, hair loss and anxiety.

alcohol and Gabapentin
72 Replies RSS
Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema. You can read more on it here: Do you have any other questions? ## what are the bad things with this drug and alcohol? ## I've taken 3600mg of Gabapentin each day for 21 months now! I drink alcohol with them & feel ok. I would just say that the Gabapentin alone will l...

Levothyroxine and Ringing in the Ears
7 Replies RSS
I was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism after having my thyroid tested and my TSH was 5.9. I have been taking Levothyroxine since the end of June. The middle of July I started having non-stop ringing in my ears and still continues. I also have experienced severe hair loss and cannot put weight ON. Is it okay to stop taking Levo to see if the ringing in my ears stop? I really don't want to be on this medication, but don't want to cause additional issues as I'm getting married soon. Appreciate any sound advice. ## I have been on levothyroxin for a good while now.i just had a week away and forgot my pills.BUT I feel good.i don't feel as tired I have less headaches.less noise/ringing ear noises.and basically feel better without my pills I don't think my doc will be ...
