Aleve shapes
Why are some Aleve round and others oval? ## Hello, Jillann! How are you? Because the shape doesn't actually mean anything. That is entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer. Aleve contains the active ingredient Naproxen Sodium, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. This medication may be contraindicated with some medical conditions and/or medications. Is there anything else I can help with?

Open capsule
Can I open up the capsule and put it directly on the infected gum. Pain from my wisdom tooth. Caused gum infection doc gave me a amox.500mg first day on it and I'm in s serious pain my neck ear and head can sleep loss appetite. ## Hello, Dinky! How are you? I'm sorry about the infection, those can be really painful! This is not a pain reliever, it is an antibiotic, so no, that won't do anything. You need to swallow the capsules, as directed. Side effects to this medication may include dizziness, drowsiness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. To know if they're working, the general rule with antibiotics is that you shouldn't see any worsening of your condition, after taking them for a full 24 hours and you should start to see improvement after taking them for a full...

Ambien Sleepwalk
Is Ambien the modern day Qualewd(?). If I take my Ambien but something comes-up and don't lay down I get a feeling that I heard was called the Ambien Sleepwalk. But if I take it and go to sleep, I don't sleep long & when I wake-up I have a headache! ## Hello, Seaman! How are you? Yes, I guess you could say it's kind of like that. It's been known to cause everything from sleep eating to driving, all of which can be very dangerous. It can also cause next day hangover like effects, as well as an odd taste. If you're experiencing such issues, you should speak to your doctor about trying something else, since such problems from Ambien tend to continue to get worse. Is there anything else I can help with?

identify half a pill
Found half a white pill, obviously scored on one side with no identifying marks but a 51? on the other side. Can anyone please identify? Thanks! ## And it's round (or was round before halved) thx! ## Hello, Jam! How are you? Is the 51 the start of the imprint or the end of it? IE: Which half of the pill is it? Or is the top or bottom? Can you please post back and clarify? That might help to narrow it down, thanks!

pain dr north georgia
Hi. I have been going through a war now for years trying to manage my pain from my ruptured and bulging disk in my lower back. For years I just dealt with the pain. But about three years ago I was forced into a point that I had to work so I started going to a pain clinic in TN and after a year I moved to Florida for my husband to get treatment for cancer. When I moved I had enough of my meds for the month but I couldn't find a doctor to see me in time and ran out. I started with withdrawls and every doctor I saw down there didn't believe I was in pain. So I had no choice but to go to methadone for the withdrawls. Now two years later I'm trying to get off it and get back to a pain clinic. I've been going through withdrawal for 3 weeks and recently started getting migraine...

forced withdrawal need help
My pain doctor was out of the country for 2 months. I was seeing her P.A. who was amazing. I hadn't planned to stay with this new pain doctor anyway she was horrible. Anyway, I called for over a week to ask the nurse what I should do because I couldn't keep the fentanyl patches secured and used more of them, I was on my last one. I called everyday and left a message. She calls me back saying I couldn't get any refills until my appt. In 4 more days. I pleaded with her that I'd read the leaflet and feared the extent of the withdrawl. No answer. So I took some old (expired) meds that I had so I could fight the withdrawl. I brought them with me and told the P.A. While I was there what I did. She sympathized and seemed to know there were issues like this. I found out that day...

hydrocodone ip466
Text alerts plz.on prescription drugs. ## Hello, Shawnquita! How are you? I'm sorry, but this site doesn't offer a text alert service. However, there is an email newsletter you can sign up, by putting your email address in the box, when making or responding to a post. The tablet with the IP 466 marking actually contains 800mgs of Ibuprofen, so it is not any type of narcotic. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

Citalopram 20 Mg Is It Gluten Free
It says on their website and several others that it is gluten free. However I experienced the same problem you did I would take it and get really sick like a sprue out break. They say they are gluten free but I am no longer taking my Citalopram 20mg ## It depends on who the manufacturer and since this is a generic, there are several different companies that make it. Are there any markings on the tablets you need information on? ## It is manufactured by Aurobindo Pharmaceuticals. I am gluten intolerant. Every time I take it I have elevated pulse rate just as I do when I accidentally have gluten. I'm trying to taper off and having withdrawal,don't like the idea of possibly gluttening myself.

Exalgo Substitute
My insurance company will no longer cover the Exalgo, what would be a substitute? ## Exalgo contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone in a time released formulation. It is available as a generic, as well as under the trade names Opana and Opana ER. Thus, your doctor should be able to prescribe one of those in an equivalent dosage. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Anyone know of a doc that is not stingy on pain meds in NC? RDU area?
Having a hard time finding a doc that will give pain meds for my severe back pain! ## Hello, Trixie! How are you? If you require pain medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist, now. A general practice physician won't be able to prescribe them for you. And none are going to be able to be really generous, there are limits on how much they can prescribe, except in the case of someone that has intractable pain due to a possibly terminal illness, such as stage 4 cancer. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

Ketamine for Depression?
This thread is an offshoot of a related one that discussed Scopolamine as a treatment for depression. /Discuss/is-anybody-being-prescribed-scopolamine-for-depression-209022_s2.htm It was recommended by the members of that thread that one be started that directly relates to ketamine and it's use to treat depression.

44 511 white oblong
Can anyone identify this pill? It's not a capsule, it's an oval white tablet, marked 44-511 ## Hi nikki, Would there happen to be a score line down the center as well? Most pills I'm finding that start with "44" and are followed by three digits are often recognized as OTC cough and cold related medications; though, I'm not finding any specific details on one that ends in "511". 44 533 and 44 547 have also come up with similar physical descriptions. And the only one I'm seeing with 44 511 is "round" in shape and not oblong as you mentioned it to be. So if you'd be so kind, could you also double check the imprint just to be sure? Thanks!

difference between amphetamine salts and amphetamine salt combo
I HAVE BEEN TAKING GENERIC ADDERALL which has always been called amphetamine salts. My last script instead of saying amphetamine salts substituted for adderall it says amphetamine salts substituted for amphetamine salt combo? What's this mean? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? It all means the same thing, just different ways of stating it. Adderall actually contains Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine, which is usually listed as mixed Amphetamine salts, so what you've seen are just different variations of the drug name. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache. dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I don't have insurance and my doctor recently boosted my dose from...

Tricor/ Fenofibrate is ruining my life! Sever neck back, shoulder blade and arm pain!
Two weeks after starting Tricor, I started developing muscle stiffness that within two more weeks was so severe, I was only sleeping a couple hours a night because the pain kept me up. I went to the Dr and she said keep taking the tricor -she prescribed muscle relaxers and an NSAID pain med. They said maybe it was bad posture, and caused by working at a computer. They also suggested physical therapy. Neither helped. Two days later I went to a Chiropracter, with no relief. The next week I was calling her office again, after waiting in pain a couple days, she prescribed another kind of muscle relaxer and NSAID for pain, and again said to go to physical therapy. The medicin did nothing at all, and again I was so severly in pain, I felt as if someone was trying to rip my arms from my should...

half white pill oblong
half white pill oblong marked with a number 10 ## Hi Tami, Comparing several images, I have a good guess that it may be a white oblong pill marked with IP 110 on one side and scored on the other. If I'm seeing this correctly, when you split the tablet in half there would be one half with IP 1 and the other half would just have the number 10 on it. It's reported to be identified as a 10/325 generic Norco pill, made by Amneal Pharma. But maybe you could also look up the IP 110 imprint in order to help draw a conclusion on whether this is it or not?
