Is Ol Tram really Tramadol?
Hello, i just received tramadol 50mg. from HAB pharmaceuticals. There are no markings on the pills. Round, white pills. Blister pack says Tramadol 50mg. is it really Tramadol? The pack also says "Ol Tram". ## Hi anned, From what I could gather, OL-TRAM is reported to be a foreign brand name of Tramadol. However, I think its legitimacy depends on where you ordered it from, since as you may know, many of those sketchy websites can often be unreliable. HAB pharmaceuticals has had some complaints in the past, but as I look at their webpage, they do strike me as being a real pharmaceutical manufacturer that produces real meds out of India. So my assumption is that it's probably real Tramadol, but in reality there's no way of being certain if there are no markings to verify th...

Viibryd and Lamictal
Today is my first day reducing Viibryd after being on 40mg/day for 9 mths. The therapeutic dose of this anti-anxiety medication has me suffering panic attacks that can be set off by any sudden sound or movement, however normal, like the phone ringing, a car honking, the buzz of a lawn mower, etc. It's as if my mind cannot figure out where the sound is coming from or what it is, and the result of a simple something that doesn't seem to phase anyone else alarms my mind into bracing every muscle to fight for my life, only there's no danger. My 'coming to' and seeing in these situations that I am the only one in a panic ready to defend myself from a physical attack that is not going to take place then reduces me from a warrior braced for battle into a gasping for air heap o

walgreens Adderall
I am hearing that Walgreens is putting a 24-48 hour hold on My ADHD Medication, Adderall. If I could afford Vyvanse I would prefer to be prescribed them but I can't. I have been getting the generic Adderall for over two years now and I was prescribed them 20 years ago in High School. I am curious to know if it is true and why? If my date on my script is the day of fill why would I have to wait until one or two days without them? ## Hello, Ryan! How are you? Have you actually been told this by someone in the Walgreen's pharmacy or is it just a rumor you've heard? I haven't heard anything about this and see no reason for them to do so, unless they have to order the medication in, or contact the doctor to ensure that it's valid. Does anyone else know anything about this...

round white pill with 10 dz
Not sure what this small pill that is blank on one side and 10 scored DZ on the other side. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? I can't be completely certain, but this has been said to be a foreign version of Valium that contains 10mgs of Diazepam. It is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and irritability. Can anyone confirm this? ## Thank you for getting back with me.

oval pink pill score one side a ZER on other side MG
It's a pink oval pill that is cut in half and scored on the MG side. I have another half that says 25 and is scored. On the other half of the 25 pill, there is a PF imprint. I tried looking up multiple pictures and pill identifiers without any luck, if you know what this is, it would be greatly appreciated for the information. ## Hi Volumes, I can't say for sure that this is what it is, but from what I could gather, a peach/pink colored oval pill with the word "Pfizer" on one side and "25" & "MG" on the other is identified as a veterinary medication known as Zeniquin; which is an antibiotic prescribed for cats and dogs. You can view a photograph if you run a google image search for "Zeniquin" and it should come up with a few pictures of what t...

I HAVE GAINED 27 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS. WHAT CAN I DO OTHER THAN STOP TAKING LYRICA. ? SHOULD iI QUIT OR LOWER DOSAGE? I TAKE 2 DOSES PER DAY. ## It's difficult to say exactly what about a medication causes any specific side effect, in many cases there is really no way to explain it, but Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which is actually an anticonvulsant, so it works on brain chemicals. This means that it may be having an affect on something that stimulates the appetite, or slows the metabolism, so some people gain weight easier than normal, while taking it. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? You may need to start more closely watching what you eat, or up the amount of exercise you get each day. ## I can relate to the weight gain with Lyrica. When I first ...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...

why won't prescription coverage cover estratest or eemt?
My doctor just renewed my prescription for eemt (originally estratest) but my insurance won't cover it and the pharmacy said it would be $407.00 for a 90 day supply. I can't afford it any longer. I have used estratest &/or eemt for many years and it was the only thing that works. My hot flashes and night sweats are miserable. The pharmacy said it was not "Obama care" that cut off our HT.

fake a 215 oxycodone
fake are stamped on the edges and the 215 is slightly off center to the right,I'm gonna take a pic side by side,there not h COMPLETELY FAKE,the ones that are h are extremely dark in IV users they seem to grow in water. The most noticeable thing is the is the 215 is off to the right. Don't get duped!! Sh?t this is why I don't do h as would be cheaper,go one suboxone films there's sealed in a package!! I'm done with this vicious cycle subs work great and prevent you from getting high when taken correctly ## Hi Timmy, Depending on where you got yours from, I'm in agreement with them being fake/counterfeit since an off-centered marking isn't what you'd expect from a real manufacturer. I also looked up the legitimate version of this pill (made by Acta...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

white oval half pill 28 on right side
Found a right half of a white oval/ oblong pill with 28 on the right side and no markings on back side ## @HelpingAFriend, Despite having half of a pill, this could still be a number of different things. Because we don't know if or what number(s)/logo exists on the other side that is not in your possession, it doesn't make identifying it any easier. Did your friend say what type of pill he/she "thought" it was or what it might've been used for? I'm also curious to know if your friend already ingested the other half or if it was found as is in that condition? An answer to those questions may help generate better leads as we search through all the possibilities. I look forward to hearing back from you!

ip 272 acne
Ip 272. Is a generic for Bactrim DS. Treats all symptoms listed from other comments. The one thing everyone forgot to mention is that it also treats moderate to severe acne and cystic acne. Amazing how my skin cleared up since I have been using the drug. Remember to take In morning and night, preferably with food if you have a sensitive stomach, and plenty of water. I noticed after taking the drug for awhile that I did have joint pain, but other than that it works amazing.. ## @Fiat, It may help with acne as an off-label use, but the only problem I see that could stem from long term use is that, without having an actual infection to treat, this could create antibiotic resistance to the point where if you did have an infection it may end up becoming much more difficult to eradicate than ...

nitisinone availablity in India
my son is suffering in tyrosinemia type-1st. Treatment is only capsule orfadin (salt, nitisinone) if any body have any information related how i can find this medicen in india or address of any authorized medicare in india, please let me know {edited for privacy}. ## Hi Rouf, Sorry to hear about the condition your son is in. I don't know what the laws are like over in India regarding Orfadin (Nitisinone) being available over-the-counter or via prescription-only (as I am here in the US where it is classified as a prescription drug). But it sounds to me like it may be a good idea to contact the doctor who originally diagnosed him with this ailment and see if he/she knows where to find the medication that was recommended for treating it. You could also just walk into any pharmacy there...
