Allergies, Cough & Cold Overview

The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza,[1] head cold, or simply a cold) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract which primarily affects the nose. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some symptoms lasting up to three weeks.

promethazine codeine

What pharmacy companies manufactured and produced promethazine codeine? Is Watson one of them? ## @bankrolled, From what I could gather, promethazine codeine (phenergan w/ codeine) is or was being manufactured by the following pharmaceutical companies: Alpharma Actavis (NDC is 0472-1627-16) Tris Pharma Inc. (NDC is 27808-065-01) Sun Pharma Inc. (NDC is 57664-185-31) Qualitest Pharma (NDC is 0603-1585-58) Hi-Tech Pharma I didn't see Watson listed, but Actavis bought them out a long time ago, so I'd imagine that their version ended up taking Watson's place. Apparently they came in one pint (473 mL) bottles. I hope this info helps!

Lagundi is safe for pregnant
2 Replies RSS
Is it safe drinking lagundi syrup even im in my 4week throat hurts. ## HI, Nette! Congrats on the baby! As to Lagundi, since this is an herbal product, not an actual medication, it hasn't been studied to see if it's safe to use during pregnancy. It would be best for you to see your doctor, before taking anything, to make sure that you only take something that is safe and won't harm your baby. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have cough and colds and im 3months pregnant..what medicine should I take?I cant slep because of headache.I did not consult a doctor yet.

Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets,how do they work
5 Replies RSS
No iprovement after taking this tablets, how should i take them to see changes on me? ## Cyproheptadine is actually an antihistamine, which is commonly used to treat allergic reactions. It can cause some increased appetite, as a side effect, but it is really not safe to use, without a doctors approval and supervision, because it is a drug and does carry risks. Have you consulted a doctor? ## I would like to share my experience with the Apetito tablets. In 2006 l started loosing weight and had skin rashes.I became the shadow of myself both home and office.My face turned black and l was depressed.No matter how beautiful clothes l wore they just could not fit.People started ignoring me even at work.A friend of mine introduced me to Apetito tablets.I was desperate and wanted anything that c...

can i take iophen c nr after expiration date

The bottle expired 9/11/2013 - is it still effective for nightime cough relief. ## Hello, Marlene! How are you? According to the FDA, you should just dispose of it. Liquid medications tend to be especially problematic, once expired, because they can go bad and may make you ill, if you take them. It would be best and safest to see your doctor for a new prescription. This is a narcotic cough suppressant, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

eye drops with oxymetazoline

replacement for Visine LR ## PLEASE IF THERE IS A REPLACEMENT FOR VLR, LET US KNOW ALL THE DETAILS OF THE EYE DROPS ASAP!!!! ## From what I can discover, it seems it has been discontinued, however, on their website, they list the active ingredient as being Oxymetazoline. Ironically, it is not used in any of their other products. I am not finding a lot of over the counter products that contain it, however, Claritin Eye Allergy Relief Drops have it and so does Ocuclear. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hey, I just found Visine LR at my local Walgreens today! Perhaps they've resumed production. ## Not all Walgreens carry the visine LR, which means that they are just selling what stock they have left. Not sure why visine stopped making this brand. I don't like anything els...

blue oblong caplet over the counter with the imprint 44485 ## I am sorry, I do not understand what you are asking. Is that marking PH on the pill? or just the numbers? ## The pill which you are describing is an over the counter combination of an antihistamine and decongestant. The active ingredients are 25 mg Diphenhydramine + 10 mg Phenylephrine. ## Just to add, the manufacturer LNK International calls it 'Complete Allergy D Tablets', with a national brand equivalent of Benadryl-D. [1] Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do... References [1] (page 6) ## These are allergy/sinus tablets from CVS.

taking Practin And Dexona is good or bad...
17 Replies RSS
My friend told me taking 1 Practin and 1 Dexona everyday will make my body stronger and I will be more muscular. He told me about dizziness side effect. I really want to know the truth.... does it really make me stronger or will give me some problems in future...please reply soon.. ## Practin contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, you can learn more about it and the side effects here: Dexina contains the active ingredient Dexamethasone, which is a steroid and very risky: There are a lot more possible side effects, other than just dizziness. They will not do what you want them to do and they should never be used without a doctor's approval and supervision. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Thank you... A message for people who wants to achieve muscular body. "...
