EST Estrgn Methtest .625/1.25 mg
15 Replies RSS
I am a 42 yr old woman and had a complete hysterectomy in October 2008. Within 1 year of my surgery, I began experiencing extreme hair loss. This November, my doctor prescribed EST ESTRN METHTEST .625/1.25 mg (in addition to the ESTRADIOL .5mg that I was already taking) to help reduce the hair loss. I was wondering if this medication is used for this purpose (as well as it's other benefits)? My mother is a breast cancer survivor (2009) & I am concerned about increasing my chances, by taking all these medications. Is it safe, or should I just accept my balding? ## This medication is a combination of Esterified Estrogens and Methyltestosterone, they are used for hormone replacement, to help with the symptoms of menopause or a deficiency in these hormones. Thus, yes, if the hair lo...

I am 80yrs old.Have been prescribed banocide forte 100 mg 3 times a day for increased swelling for old filariasis.Does the medication bring down the swelling in the left foot.How many days should I continue.Does it produce any side effectsI am a diabetic and regular on insulin ## Banocide Forte contains the active ingredient Diethylcarbamazine, it is an antihelmintic, so it is intended to eradicate the filariasis, but not it won't directly work on the swelling.

what is scopinal for
2 Replies RSS
Scopinal is the best medicine which i had used during my teens. No other medicine would help my severe cramps during menstrual cycle. I used to throw up first two days of my cycle n feel awful not been able to eat or drink something. My father who is a PhD in pharmacy had advised me to use it and it helped wonders. I never had any allergic reaction to it as I used it for 7-8 years. Now I am mother of two n would suggest it to girls as Scopinal helped me always. Cheers. ## Thank you for your helpful post! Scopinal is used to prevent nausea and vomiting, so it will actually only help with that and not the cramping or pain, but it could be beneficial. Are there any comments or questions? ## What the indecationg of scopinal?

weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what r they for. ## WELL THIS IS A DIET PILL THAT WAS TAKING OF THE MARKET IN TH U.S. BACK IN 1989 FOR THE REASON THAT IT WAS HURTING EITHER UR LUNGS ECT. IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply. In most cases, you can get away with carrying small amounts, around 3 months worth or less, of a drug into the US, without having it seized or questioned by customs. Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...

Price Increase 600%

Why did Hydrocodone/Acet 10/375 increase 600% since last year? I have been taking the medication for over 13 years after a 6 doctor team labored for months com up with something that would relieve my lifelong pain from a 2-story fall. I have been paying $6.00 /mo for 270 tablets, until this year. I went to pick up my refill an it was $35. Insurance moved it from Tier 2 to Tier 3 with no explanation. Does anyone know how to find out why this happened, did Exxon.Mobil buy the company? ## Hi Doug, Perhaps it's simply supply and demand, lately it seems as though there has been a steady increase in patients needing narcotic pain medication such as Vicodin. Have you compared prices with any other pharmacies in your area? ## My god, at either of those prices I'd be jumping up and down ...
