Fludac 20 side effects
19 Replies RSS
Just started taking Fludac 20. One tab in the morning. The doctor has prescribed it for one month. Recently I am suffering from anxiety and obsessed with any past event and try to re-create the situation and tension builds up . I am also getting less sleep very frequently. I am 65 years of age. Would request you to brief me about the side effects. ## Fludac contains the active ingredient Fluoxetine, which is an SSRI antidepressant. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight gain. Unfortunately, not every medication works for everyone, some of them can even cause the opposite effect of what they are supposed to. Have you spoken to your doctor about this, yet? It may not be the right medication for you and you may need to try something else. ## I have been u...

Monocef 200 Mg tablet
2 Replies RSS
Can 9 months pregnant can take this tablet for throat pain ## @Chakradhar, Based on my research, Monocef (Cephradine) has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. From what I've read, animal studies haven't revealed any evidence of fetal harm. However there is no controlled data in relationship to human pregnancy. For this reason it is recommend that Monocef should only be given during pregnancy when a need has been clearly established and outweighs any possible risk to the fetus. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Cephradine Details I hope this info helps! ## WHAT ARE THE USES OF MONOCEF 200mg

Prolomet R 25

I AM TAKING PROLOMET R 25 ON REGULAR BASIS . I HAVE RELISHED THAT SOME gastritis,stomach pain . HOW I WILL CURE IT ANY OTHER MEDICINE WILL BE ESSENTIAL . PLEASE ADVISE. ## Prolomet-R contains the active ingredient Metoprolol in a time released formulation, it is a beta blocker that is used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions. It can cause stomach pain and irritation as a side effect, in some people. Have you discussed this with your doctor? You may require a change in medication.

I suffered a similar problem with it and had to talk to my doctor and switch to a different medication. ## I FOUND IT VERY INFORMATIVE ## Stent placed to me in Jan-2011....

PLEASE help me with methadone questions & withdrawl
18 Replies RSS
I have been on methadone for 9 months... I was up to 80 mg but have managed to get down to 20 mg over the past 5 months or so. I am wanting to get off it all together but I am so scared because I don't want to feel miserable from the wd. Since I have been on it less than a year, will the wd still be horrible? Should I go from the methadone to suboxone to make it any easier or just keep going down on the methadone? How long will the wd's last once I am off everything? I go to the clinic so I am not doing it on my own, it is medically supervised. Can anyone PLEASE help me with some good advice?? ## Hello, Staycee! How are you doing? Methadone is actually well known for causing severe withdrawals and cravings, that's why most people treated with it end up on a lifetime maintena...

out of state hydrocodone prescription refill in florida
2 Replies RSS
I have a prescription for Hydrocodone 10/325 written by my Michigan Pain Clinic Physician and I am on a 7 day vacation in Florida. I have the paper prescription with me to be filled in Florida. Am I going to be able to get that filled. ## I don't know if this is still the case, but I found an older document from 2007 on Floridahealth.gov, stating that "a patient visiting Florida (who is a non-resident) under his/her out of state doctor's care for a chronic condition CAN have his/her out of state doctor either call in or otherwise legally transmit a prescription to be filled by a Florida licensed pharmacist for that condition." Referenced from: floridahealth.gov/licensing-and-regulation/declaratory/_documents/pharmacy/fo-07-1612.pdf If this still holds true, you shouldn...

watson 3202 2 at a time
2 Replies 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? ## The FDA recommends not exceeding 4,000 of Acetaminophen in a 24 hr period. You can take 2 regular strength (325 mg Acetaminop...

prescription refill hydrocodone
3 Replies RSS
Going to pain management for back. The Doctor wrote prescription for 3 times day or prn so when can I ask for a refill? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? How many tablets was it written for? That would help determine the numbers of days, until it can be refilled. 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. ## I am sorry I should have been more accurate. The scrip was written as follows: Hydrocodone acetaminophen 7.5-325 take 1 tablet by mouth 3 times a day as needed. The count is 90. Filled3-5-2015. Thank you for replying. Hope this helps me find an answer. ## Mary C, 1 Tablet 3 times a day for 90 tablets is a 30 days supply at least...
