What can take the place of visteril
1 Reply RSS
I am out of my visteril and can't get it refilled, is there anything I can take to help take the place to help with the side effects of withdrawal ? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Have you discussed it with your doctor? They may be able to refill it and help you. There are some antihistamines available over the counter, such as Diphenhydramine and Meclizine, but they aren't as potent and effective as Vistaril, which is why it's a prescription only medication. They may also cause side effects, as listed by the FDA, that may possibly include dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Good day. I have allergies on my right hand. Itchy, nagbabalat, nagsusugat minsan nagtutubig and worst minsan my pus cell na lumalabas. My nagsabi sakin uminom ako ng decilone forte. I tried it for 1week, once at night before sleep. Nawala naman ung pagbabalat at pagsusugat but after that 1week taking decilone forte bumalik ulit ung nangyayari sa kamay ko. I'm afraid to continue using decilone forte kc baka my mas malalang side effect. Thanks.

Is it safe to take Cheratussin AC that has been in the fridge but expired Dec 2013? ## Hello, Angvil! How are you? No, liquid medications tend to degrade much faster than others forms, plus they may actually turn and could make you ill, if you take it. It would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription, if you need to take it. Cheratussin AC is classified by the FDA a narcotic cough suppressant. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

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. "...
