cough mixture and CDT blood test
1 Reply RSS
Hi. I live in NSW Australia. I am having monthly CDT blood tests ( measure of alcohol consumption over a monthly basis) The 1st 7 tests have been negative. The last two results where high and I am shattered. I had been really sick with the flu and bronchitis for over 3 weeks. I couldn't eat or sleep and was taking the strongest over the counter cough mixture I could, almost 1 bottle a day just to get some sleep. Plus cold & flu tablets & demazen or phernegan because I was coughing so much & couldn't sleep & I was exhausted. Didn't think at the time and wondering how much they it can influence the test. Thanxt ## Hello, Smiley! How are you? Did you check the ingredients of the cough syrup? The FDA lists many of them as containing alcohol, so that could be what...

tramadol ro white pill 319
1 Reply RSS
Is tramadol round white pill 319 quick release ## Hello, Big John! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 50mgs of Tramadol in a regular release formulation. The FDA classifies this medication as an opioid 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?

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
370 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At peoplespharmacy.com there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...

Mine says a333 like ovalong shape like a loratab shape.is that a perk ## This tablet is manufactured by Actavis Elizabeth and they list it as containing 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so yes, it is a generic for Percocet. 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?

WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
84 Replies RSS
I HAVE GAINED 27 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS. WHAT CAN I DO OTHER THAN STOP TAKING LYRICA. ? SHOULD iI QUIT OR LOWER DOSAGE? I TAKE 2 DOSES PER DAY. ## It's difficult to say exactly what about a medication causes any specific side effect, in many cases there is really no way to explain it, but Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which is actually an anticonvulsant, so it works on brain chemicals. This means that it may be having an affect on something that stimulates the appetite, or slows the metabolism, so some people gain weight easier than normal, while taking it. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? You may need to start more closely watching what you eat, or up the amount of exercise you get each day. ## I can relate to the weight gain with Lyrica. When I first ...

Is there anything else I can help with?

Tramadol and pseudoephedrine
1 Reply RSS
Is there an interaction with Tramadol HCL 50 and Pseudoephedrine HCI 120mg? ...or worded another way... I took a Tramadol HCL 50, 3hours ago. Can I now take Pseudoephedrine HCI 120mg (Sudafed 12 Hour)? ## Hello, JD! How are you? The only issue that I found listed was that the Tramadol increases sedation, while the Pseudoephedrine decreases it, but it should be fine to take, as long as your doctor approves. As listed by the FDA you may experience side effects, such as nausea, headache, dizziness, nervousness, insomnia and anxiety. Is there anything else I can help with?

suboxone don't do it!!
1 Reply RSS
I've been on suboxone for 2 years now. I was addicted to pain pills. I've had withdraws from the pills and withdrawals from the suboxone, and the suboxone is 10 times worse. I don't know who discovered this drug but they should be shot. If I would've known suboxone was this bad I would've tried to quit cold turkey. They even have me on a higher dose than i took with the pills. But now I'm stuck!!! At least my Dr that I have to pay every month is happy. My advise is whatever you do don't go with suboxone. There's bound to be something better out there. ## Hello, Whisper! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems you've had. However, Suboxone does work well for many people, because though it takes awhile and must be very slowly tapered, it has ...

Does it work? I'm on day 4!
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed methylprednisolone for a reaction to poison ivy and have finished day 4 of the pack. I feel as if I have little to no relief. I am in constant discomfort (having a tough time sleeping even) and the rashes do not appear to be going away. One in fact seems to be getting worse. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? You'll need to finish the pack and then you'll likely start to see some improvement. If not, then you should consult your doctor. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this mediation as possibly including nausea, dizziness, nervousness, anxiety and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?
