what is hydrocodon acetaminophen 5 500

What is this hydrocodone acetaminophen for ## Hello, Sha! How are you? Hydrocodone is a narcotic analgesic and its coupled with the Acetaminophen, because that helps it work better for some people. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

for you women out you have heavier periods when taking isosorbide Mononitrate Er? ## Hello, Martha! How are you? Almost all medications can cause that, it's really not unusual. You may also find your cycle changing and being longer or short than usual. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, flushing, hypotension and abdominal pain. However, if they get too heavy or last too long, then you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

Like to hear from anyone that has taken this med.Thanks :) ## hi jen! I have also been taking phentermine for about 2 months now, and yes, the medicine can be great, but the side effects aren't always pretty. when i first started taking them, i had a headache, was super thirsty, and felt like i could crawl out of my skin! I now only get an occasional headache and still deal with the insomnia. what dosage are you on? maybe you should start small, say 18 mg and then move on to 30 when that doesn't work anymore, then 30.7 (...

how long does it take for hydroxyzine to work
1 Reply RSS
I have itching with no rash, Dr prescribed this rx yesterday and so far not much relief ## Hello, Karen! How are you? They should have started having some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking one. The FDA classifies this medication as an antihistamine and it is used to treat allergic reactions. Its typical side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, somnolence and sedation. However, if the itching isn't due to an allergy, then these pills won't help. Are you on any other medications?

watson 3202 2 at a time
1 Reply RSS
Is it ok to take 2 watson 3202 at a time? ## Watson Pharmaceuticals list these tablets as containing 5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. However, you shouldn't double up, unless your doctor has told you that it is safe for you to do so. It could result in an overdose and/or an increase in side effects, if you are not opiate tolerant. You also have to be careful not to exceed 3,000mgs of Acetaminophen per day. Is there anything else I can help with?

I've been unable to obtain my script anywhere since mid to late 2014! I've tried the other generics (the pink ones and also a lighter orange colored one for 20mg pills) and I get massive headaches from them so I refuse to take them after numerous attempts. But damnitt, I'm tired of not being able to get anything accomlished anymore!! I hate feeling like my head is all foggy and unable to accomplish anything it seems!! I've tried by sense and they are worthless to me as well!!! I've contacted Teva directly and they still produce what I'm looking for but why can't any of the pharmacies get what I need anymore???? And I look on the Internet and nothing recent seems to have any articles written on this!!! Is our gov't hiding this recent shortage from leaking ...

sulfameth trimethoprim 800 160 is dosage correct
1 Reply RSS
My doctor prescribed sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160 mg TB for my Bronchitis for every 12 hours for a 10 day round. I have been on it for 6 days and was looking it up on the internet. Some websites state that for chronic bronchitis it should be used for every 12 hours for 14 days. Has my doctor messed up and my bronchitis will not completely clear up? ## Hello, Shannon! How are you? No, a 10 day dosing is the normal course of treatment. The FDA classifies this medication as being an antibiotic and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Have you had any improvement, yet?

interaction methylphenidate and metoprolol
1 Reply RSS
been taking ritalin for years at high dose 80-100mg daily. always have had elevated bp but never treated. now 68 years old and have peripheral neuropathy esp in feet and hands and been presribed metroprolol 50 mg er. what is the stress when you hit the accelerator(ritalin) at the same time as brake(metoprolol? ## Hello, Jas! How are you? Has your doctor ever had you try stopping the Ritalin to see if your blood pressure goes down? That would be the normal procedure, before resorting to a blood pressure medication. I didn't find any interactions listed between them, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. However, you're basically just using one to counteract the other. What do you take the Ritalin to treat? Have you tried any alternative medications...
