I just moved into a new apartment& while cleaning it found a white oblong pill with the letters PAMOL on one side,,I have no idea what it is and have tried googling it but get no results...does anyone know what this might be? ## Hello, Frankie! How are you? This is a foreign brand of Acetaminophen, aka Tylenol. It is used to treat pain and fever. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank u so much for taking the time to respond, i was beginning to think it'd never get a response at all, but so basically it's just regular Tylenol but it's foreign?Would u happen to know the milligram on the Tylenol?

suboxone questions
I have been taking pain pills for 7 years. I detoxed myself off methadone and I almost had a heart attack. I started using when I was 23. I hurt my back, broke my tail bone, then at 25 I was diagnosed with overran cancer. Now at 28, 13 surgeries later I'm addicted. I want my life back. I did detox myself once for 6 months I was clean. The pain associated with detoxing was horrible. My chest hurt my heart hurt my legs back neck you name it. I have an enlarged kidney and I had a kidney stone that had to be surgically removed. That's all she wrote. I am a single mother trying to make it in this world. I have fought to save my life. At 21 I contracted a infection from after giving birth to my son. 8 days on iv antibiotics saved me, only 3% of people survive what I did. Th...

Ridding of Lipitor got rid of Alzheimer's symptoms
My mother was on Lipitor for over 10 years, since 6 years ago she developed Alzheimer's symptoms, she short term and med term memory is gone, kept asking the same question. She has a lot of confusion and is not confident anymore. I saw the news about Lipitor 3 weeks ago, and test it by stopping her Lipitor med. 2 weeks later, she is 85% recovered! She is like a different person now, asking me detail questions about more complex subjects, and actually wanting to learn to use the remote control! I am glad to have her back in my life, she is back from Hell. ## btw she was only taking 10mg of Lipitor. It was taken as precaution only, she exercise regularly and eats very lean. ## Hello, St Leung! How is your mother doing? Due to the side effects that such a medication can cause, I just d...

This tablet contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone, it is a generic for Norco.

Blood Pressure Side Effects
I have tried 5 different Blood Pressure Medications. All are giving me side effects of depression, loss of energy, trouble concentrating, joint pain, swelling, weight gain. Anyone here know of a Blood Pressure Medication with few side effects? ## Hello, Julie! How are you? I understand what you're going through. I rant the gamut of them myself, it took about a year to finally find ones that worked for me, without making me totally miserable. Thus, the ones I suggest you speak to your doctor about are Atacand and Labetalol, with the latter being known to cause the least side effects. You may still experience some, short-term, such as nausea, dizziness and headache, but they usually wear off after a few weeks, as your body gets used to the medication. Is there anything else I can help...

hydroxyzine hcl 25 mg for post sunburn itch
I have a prickly, burning, deep itching on my upper arms that started about 1 month after a deep sunburn. If I touch it, the itching becomes relentless and VERY uncomfortable. I have used cortizone cream, fungal cream, Vicks (as per suggestion on Internet), aloe; but the itching continues. There are also skin-colored bumps that have appeared. A pharmacist mentioned it could be a yeast infection. I have a prescription from 10/12 for hydroxyzine when I had shingles. Could I use it for this? ## Hi, Nanner! Sorry about the problem that you're having. Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that is also used for its sedative like effects. Learn more Hydroxyzine details here.

Hydroxyzine White Pill 276 A narcotic in any way
is hydroxyzine a narcotic or volume any type of narcotic in any way at all ## Hi venus, I can't find any information that classifies Hydroxyzine as a narcotic. From what I've read, it is an antihistamine that is sometimes used for premedication as a sedative. However, it supposedly doesn't share the same abuse, dependence, addiction, and toxicity potential of other medications that are used for the same range of therapeutic reasons. Learn More: Hydroxyzine Details I hope this info helps, please post back if you have any more questions or concerns! ## No its not it is used to treat anxiety but its not a benzodiazepine like xanax wish it was though ## Hydroxyzine HCL is a antihistimine used for allergic reactions, itching and as a antiaxiety medication.

my friend gave 5 15 mg ms contin she just learned her doc is gonna count her meds
Is there a blue bill similar. Im worried she will get kicked out of pain mgmt. How closely do they check ? ## If there aren't exacly enough pills there, she will get kicked out of ain management. For example, if the directions say take 1 tablet twice a day and she got the rx on July 28 and they are going to be counted on Aug 13, she would need to have 32 pills. If she is sure that they won't do a tox report at the pill count she needs to just take 1 pill a day instead of 2 until she knows that she will have the correct amount at the pill count. ## Is there a pill that looks like 15 mg ms contin ? ## Hello, Rae! How are you? No, you will not be able to switch out some of the pills to try to fool them. All prescription tablets have unique markings to enable their identification an...

suboxone treatment closest to zip code 72512
I've been on hydrocarbon since accident resulting in botched back surgery in New Orleans (after Katrina) moved to Ash Flat suboxone Arkansas. Need a doc who prescribes suboxone for chronic pain. ## Hello, CajunConnie! How are you? There is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Most will also not want you to jump from Hydrocodone straight to Suboxone. This is 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. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone for pain management? If so, that might be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area?

i am prescribed adderall 60mg day i recieved a round pink scored pill with cor 135 never did it work
Seemed not to work as well as the orange generic, could u possibly tell me why the pink cor 135 never worked ## The tablet with the for 135 marking is a 20mg tablet. So, were you taking 3 of them a day? If you were only taking it twice a day, then that could be why it didn't work, you were only taking 40mgs daily with those tablets, rather than 60mgs. Learn more Adderall details here. ## do not use core pharma 'pink' generic. my doctor writes it on my script Teva owns all rights to manufacture adderall and the generic under 'barr' its recently acquired company. shire, the original patent owner sold rights to Teva in favor of retaining rights to Vyvanase. check FDA website Brand (Teva) 20mg Adderal is more consistent, so I take 1/2 at a time IR but still notice a huge...
