naproxen shelf life
Please tell me the shelf life of naproxen sodium 550mg. Thank you, Druchel Haley ## Every prescription medication, sold in the U.S. must have a shelf life of a year from the original fill-date. Thus, if you had picked it up today, 08/23/2010, the expiration would be 08/23/2011. Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, used to treat pain and swelling. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach irritation. Read more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I was looking for the same answer and saw this. 36 Months is the shelf life for Naproxen, not 12. What you were told was the prescription life. By law prescriptions cannot last longer than a year. They are two separate things. Medicines don't all go bad on day #366 If further validation is ...

I can't find an official website on the product, I've only found an auction, where a person was selling it and they listed the ingredients as being: sweet potato fiber, fuling poris, bitter orange, lotus leaf, rhizoma alismatis and hawthorn.

Suboxone Doctors In Indiana Who Accept Medicaid
need a doctor who prescibs suboxins i am on medicaid ## While I'm not aware of which doctors accept medicaid, I can provide you with links to help you locate specific pain management doctors within your local area.

All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another: wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist I hope this helps! ## im 26 and dying from my drug addiction but only have indiana medicade and need help bad ## yes bad ## Hello, Are you still in need of information...

Question?
Hi I just started taking this A333 white oblong pill. (Generic Percocet. 10/325). I never had this type before and got it due to pharmacy supply. My question is has anyone noticed a difference in pain relief from other brands. Maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to work as well. Can't wait to hear some other input on this. Thanks. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis (Watson) and yes, there have been quite a few complaints about it recently. Prior to them popping up on here, I was actually not aware of this tablet and just managed to find the information on it. It appears that it must be cheaper than other generics, because more pharmacies are providing it and many people are dissatisfied. Have you consulted your doctor? They may have some idea t...

yellow dye/tartrazine in qualitest hydrocodone 10 325
Is the yellow dye in the Qualitest hydrocodone tablets tartrazine, aka FD & C yellow # 5? Many people, myself included, are highly sensitive to this dye. Lots of manufacturers still use it, for unknown reasons. But some have switched to an iron compound for the yellow color (who needs it?!). I have spent much time online trying to get this info, to no avail. If anyone knows, your response would be greatly appreciated! ## Hello, Bluecat! How are you? Actually, it is listed as being FD&C yellow #6. This is 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? ## My son-in-law takes the yellow Norcos. Then one day, he picked up his meds ...

Combiflam Dosage Gap Between Two
after how many hours combiflame tablet 500mg ( Paracetamol+Ibubrofin) can be repeat ## This medication combination is usually given to be used every 6 to 8 hours, as needed, for pain. It may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, stomach irritation and headache. More details: Are there any other questions? ## What is the normal dosage to have combiflam, for arthritis of knee. How often and what strength should I have safely. ## As I stated in my prior post, it is usually taken every 6 to 8 hours, as needed, for pain. What has your doctor advised? It contains 400mgs of Ibuprofen and 325mgs of Paracetamol and both of these can be problematic, if you take too much of them in any 24 hour period. You shouldn't exceed 3,200mgs of the Ibuprofen or 4,000mgs of the Paracetamol in a ...

Looking for a pharmacy to fill my 150 30/mg oxycodone
I went to 13 pharmacies in La to fill my prescription and every pharmacy told me they were back ordered and a couple told me they dont carry it because they have been robbed. Ive never had trouble filling it where I live in the Bay Area but I'm down here for the month. I will run out of medicine tomorrow, does anyone know regular pharmacies anywhere near la who usually stock this. ## Have you tried any local hospitals? Many of them have their own affiliated pharmacies, to fill prescriptions for their discharged patients and they are usually also open to the public. Most of them carry a very large range of medications, to accommodate such prescriptions, so you may have better luck there. However, you will have to actually go into the pharmacy, with your prescription in hand, so they ...

Weaning off Dilaudid
I have been taking 8 mgs. of Dilaudid 4 times a day for the last 6 months for a chronic illness. 3 months ago I had surgery to give some relief to my illness, and I have since found some stabilization to my symptoms. As such, my doctors want to wean me off of the Dilaudid. I am very nervous about the idea because I have noticed in the mornings (after not having the Dilaudid for 12 hours), I feel a bit anxious and I have joint and muscle aches and pains. Therefore, the first thing I do is take my Dilaudid. Currently to wean me off my doctor is suggesting that I taper back one pill a day (around lunchtime) each week so that I go from taking 8 4mg. tablets a day to taking one 4 mg. tablet a day. This process should take about one month to complete, and it truly frightens me. Do you have an...

V One Side Yellow Pill 3601 Compared To M367 Both At 10 325 In Strength
I was normally given the yellow v 3601-10/325pill & at CVS yesterday they gave me a white oblong pill with # M367 on the front also 10/325 in strength . The white oblong does not work for me as well as the yellow v pill. Why not ? I've been thru this with CVS before & even changed CVS locations just to get the yellow v pill. Now that CVS is giving me the white oblong M367. What can I do about it??? They say yellow pill will be out of stock til later. It's sooo frustrating! ## There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients from one generic to another. For most people the changes are insignificant and have no effect, but you may be sensitive to them. In most cases, if you wait a couple of weeks, your body will adjust to the new ones.

Finding A Dr in Charleston WV that will prescribe pain meds
I recently was going to a pain clinic for my pain medication and was discharged because I had over the counter medicine in my system. I need to find a good doctor that will write pain madicine and wont discarge you over stupid stuff like taking over the counter medicine. ## I am very sorry that this happened to you. However, did you sign a contract agreeing to such terms in order to be treated there? And what was the medication you had in your system? As to looking for a new doctor, you are going to have to stick with pain management. Under the new laws, general practitioners will no longer be able to prescribe pain medications for long-term chronic pain treatment. Another tip I can give you is when you call a new doctor to set up an appointment, don't ask them if they will prescrib...
