clear capsule b092 printed on the outside
I have a clear capsule with cream and tan beads inside. It also has B092 on the outside. I can't identify it. ## Hello Kim, Based on my research, a clear capsule imprinted "B092", containing tan/off-white beads, is reportedly identified as Rhinabid (Phenylephrine HCl 15mg + Brompheniramine Maleate 12mg); a medication used for relieving allergy and cold symptoms. These pills are said to be manufactured by a company called Breckenridge Pharmaceutical. Apparently they have several office locations throughout the east coast in places like Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey, as well as one in New York. I hope this info helps!

Mometasone and joint pain
I was taking Mometasone for about 3 weeks for a sinus infection. I stopped about 6 weeks ago. Now I am experiencing joint pain and soreness, specifically on my wrists and hands. My back has also been feeling more sore than usual. Does anybody think it is possible that this is a result of the Mometasone? ## Hello, Alex! How are you? If you stopped taking it 6 weeks ago, then no, it isn't likely to be from the Mometasone, though it is a steroid class medication, most side effects typically wear off within a week or so of stopping it. Are you on any other medications? Did you take an antibiotic for the infection? ## I am not on any other medication. I was on an antibiotic ( I think it was Ampicillin ) for the sinus infection at the same time as I was given Mometosone to use.

allergies to sulfa
I'm allergic to Sulpha based drugs, but I am into cooking and wondered if it would be safe for me to try black sea salt? in the descriptions it keeps mentioning it has a sulphur like taste, smell, etc, in it's description, but I can't seem to find out if it's actually sulphur based. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. ## There is a difference between sulfa drugs and actual sulfur. Can you eat egg yolks without a problem? If so, then you are not allergic to sulfur, because they are very high in it. I am also allergic to sulfa drugs, but have no problem with actual sulfur. Is there anything else I can help with?

Can Triplen Forte Cause Humming in the Ears
My husband has been using Triplen Forte for about 6 months now. He is reporting a humming noise in his ear and this seems to be increasing in severity. He also uses Topzole for 12months Can any of these medications cause this noise in his ears? He has been checked by his GP and during a previous hospital visit a MR scan was done and nothing could be picked up.
