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.

OcuClear
19 Replies RSS
OcuClear was the best eye drops ever. Since it has gone off the market, I have been unable to find anything comparable. Visine does not do the trick at all. Is there an eye drop on the market today that even comes close to what OcuClear would do? Or can I still purchase OcuClear on the internet? ## OcuClear is manufacrured in Canada, Visine L.R. is the equivalent of OcuClear, and it's available in the US. They both share the same ingredient, which is Oxymetazoline. To learn more click about Oxymetazoline the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I have tried Visine. It may have the same ingredient in it, but something is still different about Visine than OcuClear. I have a problem with red eyes, and OcuClear always cleared...

periactin/ weight gain
3 Replies RSS
How can I get some periactin ## i need sum help to gain weight ## @Erica (original poster), Periactin (Cyproheptadine) is listed as an antihistamine indicated for allergies. And although one side effect of Periactin is a "stimulated appetite", side effects are mere 'possibilities' that don't happen to everyone... so I'm really curious as to why you would think to use an allergy medication to help gain weight instead of more conventional methods such as monitoring the amount of calories you eat throughout the day? Perhaps contacting a registered dietician or nutritionist may be a wise decision if you need help reaching specific goals with your caloric intake. ## Periactin
