losartan htcz -ankle pain
Since I became allergic to lisinopril, I've been taking 1 losartan hydrochlorothiazide 100-12.5 daily for 2 yrs. for blood pressure. When in FL for the winter, the pill was a different size, assume mfg. by different company, and ankles didn't hurt. In NY, I get the same drug, a bit different sized, and now my ankles ache and perhaps a very small swelling on outside ankle bone. Is it possible that the NY pills cause this while the FL pills don't? ## Since I became allergic to lisinopril, I've been taking 1 losartan hydrochlorothiazide 100-12.5 daily for 2 yrs. for blood pressure.

Hydrocodone Apap 5mg 500mg Shelf Life
What is the shelf life of these pills? 12, 18, 24 Months? I do understand like all other products, they do lose their potency. ## Once they have been removed from the originally factory sealed bottle and exposed to the elements, then the expiration date is one year. If they are still in the original factory sealed bottle, then the expiration date is 3 years from the date of manufacture. Are there any other questions? ## Thank you, I'll be throwing these pills out ## I have a 500 mg vicodine that expired in 02/08/2013. It is a year and 6 months old. Can u still use it. ## If u are going to throw out, would you mind just sending to me instead. I understand they are expired, but I lost my ins and have severe pain, so please lmk Thanks so much!

Fill Oxycodone In Ga
im in calhoun ga.... i need to fill my rx for 30mg oxycodone 120 count any suggestions?? ## I had been visiting a doctor in Cartersville and have been unable to reach his office this week for my 30mg oxicordone can you recommend a doctors office for me ## I need to find a new doctor somewhere near Atlanta, that can help me renew my 30mg oxicodone, I am having trouble trying to reach my clinic in Cartersville and I'm about to run out! Can anybody help me with a new clinic? ## My advice would be to make sure you aren't just calling the pharmacies to ask. If it's just a voice on the phone, they have no way of knowing whether or not you are a legitimate customer in need or a potential thief. Thus, most will just say that they don't stock any controlled substances. To get acc...

is sambong releaf forte good for UTI
how many tabs should be taken to treat UTI? ## nothing ## I am afraid that this seems to be an over the counter supplement touted as a drug alternative for urinary problems. That said, it is, therefore, not proven to actually help with anything. I can't even find information on what it contains or exactly what they recommend you use it to treat or prevent. Urinary tract infections normally require an antibiotic, which is prescribed by your doctor, according to the type and severity of the infection. Have you consulted a doctor regarding the use of this or your possible need for an antibiotic? Self-treatment could result in a more severe infection and illness than what you are already dealing with. I am going to try to see if I can find any more information on this. Is there anything...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Side effects? Worse anxiety?
I just started taking citalopram 20 mg 5 days ago. Today I had a terrible all over anxiety/panic attack that lasted about 10 min. I've never had anything that intense before. I wonder if I should just give this med more time to get in my system. Just wondering if this happened to anyone else? ## Hi they think citalapram takes 5-6 weeks to work u will feel worse before better keep at it is an amazing tablet it's helped me a great deal ## Hello, I seen you posted this a little while back. I was wondering how you were doing? I have started this medicine this past Friday. I have taken 4 doses of 10mg. Yesterday / Last night I felt terribly anxious for a good part of the day, and last night I woke up in a panic, and finally fell asleep about an hour later. Today, I feel a little ston...

Avoiding Seroquel drug interactions
My Mum is diagnosed Parkinsons Dimentia or Lewy Body Dementia. She has been prescribed and has been taking low dose Seroquel (25mg) which dose has been dropped to 12.5mg approx 6 weeks ago. The drugs Mum is on aren't working for her (she is very sensitive to Benzo lines and other drugs) and I'm discussing with her Doctor the feasibility of switching to cholinesterase inhibitor drugs instead. Rivastignmine (Exelon) is one of those drugs but I note it does moderately interact with Seroquel. As Mum is incredibly sensitive to drugs and their effects, I'd rather Mum be completely off Seroquel before commencing something such as Rivastignmine. What period of time would be a safe duration to suggest that the Seroquel would no longer be in her system? ## Approximately 36 hours, but ...

cialis and mood swings irritability
I'd just like to know if anybody else has any experience of seeming to be more irritable and emotional during the time that they are getting the effects from Cialis? ## These are not normal side effects of the medication and I haven't read posts from many other people experiencing such a problem. Medications can effect everyone differently, so it may be caused by the Cialis/Tadalafil, or it could be caused by something else entirely. Have you contacted your doctor to discuss the problem, yet? ## My husband takes Cialis and has experienced SEVERE mood swings when he is on it. He is also having chest pains. I have asked him to discontinue for one month to see. ## My husband, too, becomes very moody and irritable when he is on Cialis. Consequently he only takes it spasmodically. ##...

generic percocet 10 a333 white oblong
Anyone had stomach / intestinal effects from this particular form? I've been switched from Watson 932 10/325 because of drug store supply. ## Hi Michael, According to the Oxycodone Drug Details page, this medication can cause GI related side effects such as: diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, vomiting, urine retention, and loss of appetite. I don't know which of these symptoms you may be experiencing, but I believe they can be relatively common amongst other possible side effects. It could also be due to having a different set of inactive ingredients (otherwise known as binders/fillers). If you have a known allergy to things like corn starch (a gluten derivative) or propylene glycol (which is also used in motor oil for your car), then this might be worth looking into. I hav...

zopax to urbanol
Can I stop taking ZOPAX 1mg daily and immediately Switch to URBANOL. ## Hello, Denise! How are you? Yes, they are both benzodiazepines, but you do need to make sure the doses are equivalent. Has your doctor approved the switch? These medications carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. ## Hi can I take zopax 0.05mg and drive

Methadone 10mg Asc 116
WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Yeah, what is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend lab...
