the time of day to take Losartan
3 Replies RSS
I just started taking Losartan 50 mg. 3 days ago. I take arthritic meds. for gout so I asked the pharmacy if it would be ok to take this at 7 every evening. Now I am hearing that it should be taken of a morning. I take thyroid medicine first thing in the morning and then mid morning take the arthritis meds. Will it be effective taking the Losartan in the evenings ? ## Hello, Alice! How are you? When did you doctor instruct you to take it? Blood pressure medications are usually meant to be taken in the morning, so they can help control your blood pressure during the times of day when you will be most active and experience the most fluctuations. Taking it at night could cause it to go too low, since it naturally lowers at night, when you're at rest. The typical side effects of this me...

It can continue for several months, even the breakthrough bleeding. Weren't you warned about such side effects, when you were discussing having the procedure? You may also experience weight gain, hair loss, anxiety and dizziness. You can read more about the possible side effects here: It says they can last for up to 3 months. ## do ladies go skinny with jadelle also? ## This will be my first month of having the Jadelle implant.

3 norco 10mg too many?
1 Reply RSS
My mom took 3 norco without letting me know. I monitor her meds and give her one every 4 hours if needed. But she informed me that she took 3 of them without my knowledge and was scared what they might do. She is sleeping but very restless. ## Hello, Beverly! How is she doing? Yes, that might be too much for her. Did she suffer any adverse effects? That could result in overdose, if she's not opiate tolerant. Signs of overdose may include nausea, severe dizziness, extreme drowsiness and shallow breathing. 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. Any time that you are concerned for the life and/or health of a loved one, you shoul...

Show pictures of oxy contin ## Hello, Monkey! How are you? I'm sorry, but I don't have pictures to post for you, due to copyright reasons. However, I can list the descriptions of the various doses of Oxycontin for you, since there are only a couple available and there are no generics. The new ones that are currently available are…. Round, white, with OP on one side and 10 on the other, 10mg Oxycontin. Round, gray, with OP on one side and 15 on the other, 15mg Oxycontin. Round, brown, with OP one side and 30 on the other, 30mg Oxycontin. They are all manufactured by Purdue Pharma and those are the only ones they list as being currently on the market. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause s...

Two different ADHD Meds from two different doctors
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I am currently seeing a psychiatrist near the school that I go to, and a family practitioner back at home. My school psychiatrist has began prescribing me ritalin along with other depression medication. My new doctor began prescribing me vyvanse, but the dosage is not good enough to make a difference and I will not see him for a while. Would it be possible for me to see a different doctor on top of this one and purchase the ritalin via cash; and not use my insurance, but instead use a different pharmacy while I continue to receive my vyvanse from my other doctor via insurance? Thank you so much in advance ## Hello, Thomas! How are you? Doing so would be illegal and all controlled substance prescriptions are tracked, so it would eventually catch up with you, even if you pay cash. ...

noticing a change in weight
1 Reply RSS
Hey all, I'm very new to taking topamax and wondered how long it'd be until I'd notice a weight loss? Any answer would be appreciated. ## Hello, MomV7! How are you? Since this isn't actually a straight weight loss medication, which means that weight loss is just a side effect, it may take about 4 to 6 weeks for you to start seeing a difference, if it works for you. Typical side effects of this medication, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, indigestion and rapid back and forth eye movements. Is there anything else I can help with?
