Ascriptin itself.
5 Replies RSS
My 15 yr old hound started limping on his front legs the other day. He's already getting stiff in the hind quarters altho' once we get going he moves well. A friend suggested Ascriptin that she'd used years ago on her large White Shepherd and it really helped. I found a bottle of the brand-name Ascriptin (500mg + Maalox) in my medicine chest but only 2 left and altho' it's old there's no funky smell. Gave one to Buster at night and the next morning he no longer limped and was seemingly restored! This bottle is label-dated 1993! but it seems to have worked anyway. I'm sure it's no longer made in this brand-name form so I'm opting for some 325mg. bufffered aspirin and hope it does as well. ## Hello, Vince! How is your pup? I'm glad that the medicati...

yellow oblong pill with 3 scores and one end broken off so only see 039
3 Replies RSS
It has 3 scores as to break off and since one end is broken can only read 039 on it. It is oblong with a somewhat rounded corners and light yellow. ## Hello, Susanne! How are you? Thankfully, this one is easy to recognize, that marking is actually R 039. This tablet is manufactured by Actavis and they list it as containing 2mgs of Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax. The FDA lists this medication as being a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders.It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you so much that is what I was told that it was but couldn't locate it so wanted to make sure! ## You're very w...

has anyone seen an oval 15 mg percocet oxycodone that looks similar to xanax. does this exist
1 Reply RSS
Does this exist? Sin was buying them. I'm scared she may be getting herself into something far more dangerous. Always fear meds I've not been able to locate on the internet w/ an image. ## Hello, Sophie! How are you? Are there any markings on it? That is what would enable them to be identified for you. But to clear something up, there is no 15mg Percocet. Percocet contains Oxycodone with Acetaminophen and it is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs of Oxycodone with 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Anything in a higher dose is either Roxicodone or its generics, or the time released Oxycontin. The FDA lists 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 const...

Suboxone was ruining me
3 Replies RSS
I was addicted to Percocet and Vicodin for 4 years I finally got off of them and immediately was prescribed suboxone 8mg a day. 3 weeks in I started getting tingly arms and hands and was so painful it would wake me up in the middle of the night. Suboxone doctor told me it was probably carpal tunnel so I got a wrist brace and a shot in my wrist. About 6 weeks in I couldn't wake up on time for work. I wasn't enjoying anything i was just going through the motions. I almost lost my job but my boss gave me some time off. So 9 weeks in I quit cold turkey. Day 1 and 2 were not bad as suboxone was most likely still in my system. Day 3 a lot of anxiety horrible chills and cold sweats body aches fatigue day 4 depression and anxiety and stomach issues. Day 5 stomach issues. This is day 6 a...

Methylprednisolone 4mg pak for sinus infection along with cephalexin 500mg (twice daily)
5 Replies RSS
I took Methylpredinisolone 4mg pak for 6 days, like 2 days later my headaches are so bad and its all day, yesterday headaches were all day and today same thing. took advil help a little bit.... first I thought it was my sinuses but now I just think its the after effects of stopping the medication?? is this common??? ## Hello, ETAZ01! How are you? I'm sorry about the headaches. Yes, it is possible. The FDA classifies Methylprednisolone as a steroid class medication, so it can cause that, as well as nausea, dizziness, insomnia and elevated blood pressure. It may even be a combination of both having taking the medication and your sinuses. The antibiotic can also cause headaches, in some people that take it. How many more days of it do you have to take? Other antibiotic side effects may...

diltiazem and atenolol
3 Replies RSS
Been taking (NEW) Diltiazem 180 mg 24 hr time release caps as well as tapering atenolol (was 100mg daily) had horrible symptoms so back on 25mg of atenolol with the diltiazem... can they be taken at the same time or should they be spaced a bit? For svt and BP control. ## Hello, Hyperdi! How are you? If your doctor has advised you to stop the Atenolol, then you should follow their instructions for stopping it. Taking both of them could cause your heart rate and blood pressure to go too low. What type of symptoms did you experience? You were likely experiencing some minor withdrawal effects, as well as new side effects from the Diltiazem. Typical side effects to is, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, dry cough and increased urination. ## ...
