Side Effects Of redotex
I have been taking redotex since 3 months, and the first 2 weeks 1 start to loose weight, approximatly in this 3 months i have been lost arround 20-22 pounds, I am not experienced any side effect, It works to me very good!!! Just that i feel my mouth very dry and i have to be drinking water, but not another thing..I think that is different in each person. But my question is that if this pill could affect me because i am trying to get pregnant.. ## Have you discussed this with your doctor? I can tell you that it is probably not a good idea to use once you do get pregnant. The U.S. FDA banned this from being sold or imported here and for very good reason, it contains a dangerous mix of medications. Redotex contains Amphetamines, Diazepam (a Benzodiazepine), depressants, laxatives, diureti...

m amphet salts 20 mg vs adderall xr 20 mg
Adderall xr 20 mg and M. Amphet Salts 20 mg. Are these the exact same medications? Are they both manufactured my Shire? Does Shire provide Teva/Barr with the generic version of Adderall xr under the name M. Amphet Salts 20mg? Thank you.... ## In order to tell you the manufacturer, you need to provide the markings or imprints on the capsules in question. I do, however, doubt this is the case, because TEVA manufacturer's their own generic medications. Both items that you described are the same medication, the only different you listed was one being controlled release, I do not know if the other one is controlled release or not, from what you provided. There are many companies that make generic medications. Can you please post back with the imprint? I will gladly check to see who makes...

Extreme fatigue on Xarelto
Hello, Hope someone can help. I've been hitting a wall of fatigue everyday about 1pm to the point where I need to take a 2 hour nap when my daughter is napping and its painful to wake up even after that. I take Xarelto everyday with dinner to treat a DVT. I've been on it 4 months. Is this a known side effect? I tested my theory when I started to realize this began after taking Xarelto and skipped a dose one evening. The following day I didn't need a nap and didnt have that same debilitating exhaustion. I'm only 34 this is no time to be this tired after a full nights sleep! It feels like a crash, an unnatural exhaustion. Thanks! AS ## Hi! Sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a lot of side effect information on this...

Cozzar and kidney issues
I started on Cozzar at the end of April 2012 since my ins would not pay for Benicar. I was told by the doctor yesterday July 12, 2012 after my anual A1C for diabetes that I now have kidney disease. Prior to taking Cozzar there were no issues after blood tests regarding my kidneys and high creatinine levels. Could the Cozzar possibly have created these high levels???? ## What type of kidney disease is your doctor referring to? Just one test with odd kidney levels would not diagnose kidney disease, it actually takes 3 of them being low, for 3 months in a row to diagnose kidney disease or kidney failure. And yes, the Losartan in Cozaar can cause decreased kidney function, but it is usually reversible, just by stopping it and switching to a different medication. Learn more Losartan details ...

Major Side Effects Of Dexona And Practin
Does Dexona and Practin Tabs Increase weight...? Will i have any problems in future....? ## Please I recommend not to use practin and dexona....for weight gain... i used them for 2 mnths for weight gain...i gained 12 kgs in 2 months but after leaving those tablets..i had jaundice..and had anrexia and nausea ...and had no appetite..i lost all 12 kgs in only 15-20 days...but the symptoms continued..i had a doctor checkup ..he told me that it will take 8-12 months to recover.. However u can use only practin.... ## I have to agree, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, it isn't safe to try to use these medications just to gain weight. Like any drug, they carry the risk of causing other severe side effects, just like Nayan has stated. Practin contains the active ingredient Cypr...

procedure of taking trust pill
can i take the trust pill after my menstruation bec as ive search in internet there says u must take the pill on the first day of mens but my firend told me after the mens so tell me pls im confuse bec i want to use trust pill so that i will not get pregnant. ## No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month. Are there any comments or questions? ## can i use trust pill as a quick start? Its been two weeks ago since i got my monthly peri...

Side effects of Oxycontin
Can someone please tell me why I am having such bad reactions to OC (the usual itching, nausea and vomiting). I am vomiting 5-6 time a day, and find it extremely difficult to keep anything down, even water. I have been prescribed OC 80mg for severe disc protrusion, awaiting surgery, subsequent to a double discectomy and laminectomy (lumbar). I am aware that opioids can adversely affect people who are not tolerant, but for me, this is not the case. In the past I have had Diamorphine and Fentanyl 75 with no issues, not even withdrawal. Can anyone throw any light on this for me. They are great for the pain, but I can no longer handle the side effects. ## In addition to this post, when I vomit from the meds, I often end up vomiting the pill which then has no effect on the pain. With respect...

Zubsolv reviews
Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me. Its only been a day so maybe it will get better. But, its suppose to be great for takin effect quicker? And it burns the shiznikks out of my mouth! ## tried it yesterday, really good in my opinion a big step forward, easy to use and you get rid of the hideous aftertaste. Haven't noticed any difference in strength. ## Much, much, much better taste and really fast dissolve time - I really can recommend Zubsolv!! ## Hello, Based on my research, Zubsolv is a medication that contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine + Naloxone.

I suffer from terrible back pain. Tylenol just doesn't work anymore. Can anyone suggest something else? Please let me know. {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Vlad! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. Have you had this checked out? It may be a problem that can be correct with treatment, so you are no longer in any pain. There is also a chance that it may worsen and not be treatable, if you just leave it go. The spine can be very touchy, so you shouldn't just leave it go and try to treat it with pain medications. ## Checked what out? ## Hi, Vlad!
