what is the shelf life of alprazolam before it's useless?
129 Replies RSS
I have a bottle of alprazolam from 2005 and I'm wondering if it's still good? It's 4 years old at the time of writing this. ## The shelf life of Alprazolam should be located on the packaging of the drug. If not, then chances are that the medication is no longer good based on how many years it has been sitting there; however I am not an MD, so I cannot say for sure what may or may not be safe for you to consume. I would urge you to contact your doctor or local physician to assess if the quality of the drug still remains. If you are interested in viewing more information regarding Alprazolam, then please follow the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back so I can further assist you. ## If you need help with drugs please ask God for healing ju...

Xarelto and Vtamins?l
24 Replies RSS
Was prescribed Xarelto 15 mg 2x daily two weeks ago for blood clot in the leg. I would like to keep taking the viamins/ supplements that I always took before this - I.e., B complex, Vit. C 1000 mg, Calcium/Magnesium, Vit D 2000 IU, Co-enzyme Q 10 200 mg, Biosil and Lutein. My doc said "no", but didn't tell me why not. Can't find any info anywhere to determine abiut this. Xarelto manufacturer has no info on package insert. Pharmacist doesn't seem to know either. I have read on another website that apparently the maket did not test for interactions w. vitamins, so they don't know. Does anyone here have any futher info regarding this? I feel that I really need to be taking my vitamins! ## Hello, Claire! How are you? Some vitamins can cause blood thinning and other m...

Is anyone still suffering regular chest pain 10 months on from a pulmonary embolism? Mine was a very large unprovoked saddle PE. I am on xarelto 20mg. Can lungs be permanently damaged from a PE? ## Your lungs can be permanently damaged, but a cat scan would be able to give you the answer I too had to blood clots one on each lung and some how escaped completely un harmed I'm currently on warfain for the past 4yrs and have had no problems what so ever from the looks of all these posts I think I will keep it that way. ## I had a severe saddle PE in July of 2008 and had chest pain for about 18 months after. My docs all thought it was chostochondritis and looking back I do believe that was what it was. The pain can be caused from the minute movements the clot caused on your cartilage in ...

Stopping Xarelto
11 Replies RSS
I have been instructed to stop my 20mg a day after being on it for 6 months (2 PE's one in each lung at Xmas) and I have to say I am really worried and every little pain I think its come back. I have another 3 weeks to go until I got for a blood test to see if I am prone to clots however I am completely paranoid. Anyone else had the same feelings....as the meds have been my comfort blanket for so long..... ## Have you had a hypercoagulability test? Mine revealed a Factor B Leiden gene mutation, so I will never stop taking blood thinners. If you can have that blood test, it will let you know if you have a tendency to clot. ## Do you mean Factor V Leiden? Been on 20 mg Xarelto since march 2014. Had double pneumonia in jan 2014 accompanied by DVT which threw clots to my lungs. In hospt...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
345 Replies RSS
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

amoxicillin tooth infection
Post a Reply
Hello, I recently went to the dentist due to tooth pain in one of my wisdom teeth. after finding out that I had a tooth infection i was prescribed 10 days worth of amoxicillin, having finished this yesterday I still have tooth pain but, a considerably less amount of pain. I'm wanting to know if this means that the tooth will have to be extracted? Also, i have two 875mg tabs of amoxicillin for an infection in September should i take this in the hopes to still get rid of the infection and or to keep myself on the antibiotic so that my infection doesn't grow resistant to it. Tomorrow is Sunday so I wont be able to contact my dentist until Monday or possibly Tuesday if he celebrates president day.
