green oval Losartan 25 mg vs pink round sz 210
2 Replies RSS
Any difference? My pharmacy wasn't able to give me my usual green Losartan. Should I be concerned? ## Hello, Alan! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and they do list it as containing 25mgs of Losartan. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. It is normal for pharmacies to switch which generic they carry, depending on who was offering the cheapest price to their supplier, when they needed to restock their supply. Is there anything else I can help with? ## thank you. just want to make sure that I got the right meds. I appreciate it.

Methadone Clinic that accepts medicaid for payment
30 Replies RSS
live in seminole county, Florida. I am on medicaid and want to know if there is a clinic or doctor that will accept medicaid for methadone maintenance. ## I really wish I could help, but I haven't been able to find any that are directly listed in that area, however, I will admit, I am not familiar with Florida, so there could be some places that I am missing. Have you tried asking your doctor or perhaps calling the Medicaid office to see if they have a place they can recommend? Another good place to ask would be your local hospitals, especially the social workers, they usually have listings of such places for those in need that may have trouble finding them. ## I live in Bradenton-Sarasota & I go to the PAR clinic in Bradenton. It's on US41 in a plaza where Livingston's ...

7.5-325/15 liquid hydrocodone
1 Reply RSS
I have 7.5-325/15ML - How many ML would it take to equal one pill of hydrocodone? ## Hello, Katie! How are you? From what you've listed the dosage is 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen per 15mls, so that would be the same as taking the same dosed tablet. However, you should not exceed the given dosage instructions. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
81 Replies RSS
I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

why does 176 Norco made byCaraco make me sick .I have been on Norco for 10 years,never had this brand until Target/CVS gave it to me this mo. never had stomach pains nausea'.will never take this again trying to make my 30 days time frame ## Hello, Poppy! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the problem you've experienced. The inactive ingredients can differ from one manufacturer to the next, so Caraco may have used something that you're sensitive to. There is also a chance that these pills may be a bit stronger than the others, which could also cause these types of symptoms. 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. ...

If you experience that, when taking this medication, the FDA states that you need to inform your doctor and have it checked out, in certain rare cases it can have detrimental effects on your kidneys and liver.

foods to avoid for type 2 diabetes
1 Reply RSS
Fruits to avoid, meats, fish, poultry, cereals, nuts etc. ## Hello, Alex! How are you? As reported by the NIH, the main things to avoid are sweets and high fat foods, which means you also need to watch your fruit intake. However, beyond that, there is no specific list that can be given. Carbohydrates can raise your blood sugar, but it varies from person to person how much they affect it and which ones, some people seem to tolerate certain foods much better than others. The best thing to do is to make sure you eat a healthy, well balanced diet and get lots of exercise. You should also avoid alcohol, because it can lower blood sugar and shouldn't be mixed with most medications. Is there anything else I can help with?

What does this pill treat or used for ## Hello, Bart! How are you? I believe the marking you're looking at is actually TCL 272. This tablet is manufactured by Time Cap Laboratories and they list it as containing 400mgs of Guaifenesin, which is an expectorant most commonly used to treat cold symptoms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?
