i i am 21 years old but i very slim thin i want to fat so please tell me name of the medicine
i i am 21 years old but i very slim thin i want to fat so please tell me name of the medicine.please tell me. ## Hello, Periactin (cyproheptadine) is a prescription medicine that is sometimes given to people who need to gain weight. Cyproheptadine, the main ingredient in Periactin, is actually an antihistamine used to relieve allergy symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, itching eyes/nose, sneezing, hives, and itching. I'm not sure if it's available where you live, so I recommend asking your local pharmacy! In order to gain weight in a healthy manner or without medication, I would suggest portioning out your meals every 2-3 hours (right around 6 meals per day). These meals should include natural nutrient dense foods with little to no empty calories, so you can get the most o...

which side of the pill is pseudoephedrine
I am very confused which side of the pill could be sudafedrine the tan are the white ## Hello, Robert! How are you? Neither one is just the Pseudoephedrine, the ingredients are equally dispersed throughout the entire tablet. The different colors is just something that manufactured decided to do to emphasize the ingredients and how their medication is supposed to work. Side effects to Allegra-D may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and elevated blood pressure. This medication is used to treat allergy symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

ZS 906
cetirizine hydrochloride? This is a round fairly small pill with ZS on one side and 906 on the other. I received them as generic zyrtec but I can't find it on the internet. Is it one possible generic pill for zyrtec? It doesn't seem like it's working for my allergies so I figured I should check it out. usually the generics are white oblong pills. I got them from walgreens. ## I received same pills and no they don't work the same as zertec. I can't find anything on it either. ## Its actually SZ 906 which is Cetirizine which is used for an allergy pill. But if that doesn't help you can take that pill (Cetirizine) and Singulare.

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...
