Contrave and depression
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Contrave for 2 weeks and have lost 11 pounds. I don't want to get out of bed. I feel like blah. I don't even want to do the things I used to enjoy. It takes all I have to do what I have to so I can take care of my kids. I don't want to stop taking it because I'm losing so much weight. Will this feeling go away?? ## Hello, Jennifer! How are you? Yes, it can cause depression in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, nervousness and insomnia. You should inform your doctor, there are other medications that you can take for weight loss and you may need to stop this one. Are you on any other medications?

Is expired acetaminophen toxic
1 Reply RSS
Can 8 year old acetaminophen chemically change into something harmful and toxic? Thanks, I can't buy any at the moment and this is all I have. I will be taking 1000mg. ## No, it does not become toxic after expiring. However, medications do lost effectiveness over time, so it will most likely be worthless to take and you should just dispose of it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

diclofenac sodium, codeine phosphate tablet 50mg
1 Reply RSS
I purchased diclofenac sodium & codeine phosphate tablets 50mg, but I cant find any images to identify it as such. It came in a foiled back pop out sleeve of 10. It's a light peach or pink color with a score on one side and nothing on the other. It also says Duranzo on it. My vision is not so good so i cant make out the pharmaceutical co. Can you help me please? ## Hello, Mini! How are you? This combination isn't available in the U.S., it is a foreign medication from India. Duranzo is listed as containing Diclofenac and Codeine, but since foreign medications aren't regulated like U.S. prescription drugs, there's no way to confirm that's what you've received. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit formin...

You might be having an allergic reaction to something in it and may need antihistamines. Is there a rash and hives, or just topical itching? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including skin irritation, site soreness, irritability and weight changes.

potassium cl 20 meq er/lasix ratio
1 Reply RSS
I am taking 10 mg lasix twice daily and 20 meq potassium daily. Is this a good ratio? ## Hello, Eugene! How are you? Are these the doses your doctor has prescribed? There's really no definitive rate that I can give you for how much potassium Lasix depletes from the body, it can vary from person to person. Have you actually tested as being low in potassium? The FDA lists the typical side effects of Lasix as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, hypotension and dehydration. The potassium is known to irritate the stomach, so it should only be taken with food.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hair loss and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

I'm taking this medicine for pneumonia is this for pneumonia? ## The FDA classifies Doxycycline as a broad spectrum antibiotic, so it can be used to various types of bacterial infections, as deemed appropriate by your doctor. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Antibiotics for gums
1 Reply RSS
I have been having gum problems for two years, pain, exposed roots, etc. my dentist would treat me by amoxicillin and antibiotic packs implants along with deep cleaning saying "let's see if this works" I keep asking for a referral to a periodontist but she kept saying we are trying to prevent that but all she is doing is maxing out my yearly coverage (I have great dental plan). I switch dentist and explain to him all that has been done and even brought past records but he didn't want to see them and now He is doing the same thing deep cleaning and antibiotics. I brush all the time, floss all the time, rinse with antiseptic mouth wash all the time.
