does erectile dysfunction caused by using pseudoephedrine for short period is temporary
Hi, I am 37 years old male. I took 120 mg of pseudoephrine every 12 hours for 4 days only to treat nasal congestion. I felt a complete erectile dysfunction for the first time in my life from the second day. I was in panic and I stopped the drug the forth day fearing that it might cause long time ED. I would like to ask whether it is only temporary ED as a side effect of the drug? Thank you.

does iophen c ncr cough syrup have aspirin it
Does Iophen-C NR have aspirin in it? I take 20mg of Xarelto and cannot take any meds with aspirin. ## Hello, Don! How are you? No, this medication does not contain any Aspirin. The active ingredients are Guaifenesin and Codeine, it is a narcotic cough suppressant. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. So, you should be able to take it, as long as your doctor approves. Is there anything else I can help with?

Fexofenadine 60 mg
Why is it so hard to find 60 mg fexofenadine on shelves anywhere. The only thing I can find generic or otherwise is 180 mg, 24 hour. ## Hello, SJW! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. I'm sorry, but I'm not exactly sure why you can't find it, since it is an over the counter product, shortages are not required to be reported. Have you tried asking your pharmacist? They may know more. This is a generic for Allegra, which is used to treat allergies and which may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and drowsiness. It could even be that the 60mg dosage just doesn't sell as much as the other, so it may not be viable for most stores to keep it in stock.

promethazine made by amneal more effective for nausea
pls help me to explain to my pharmacist that the pill I took made by amneal and prescribed for me to relieve nausea works and the medication he sold me made by other manufacturers is not the same medication and is worthless. He told me in words that suggest that im not mentally well that these drugs are identical. They are not. ## Hello, Jdypat! How are you? It is the same medication, but there can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient, so if this one is slightly lower, it might not work as well for you. The FDA does allow them to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% of the active ingredient. That's really a small fluctuation window, in many cases less than a milligram, and it doesn't cause a problem for most people, but sometimes pe...

Doctors prescribing Dextromethorphan
Does anybody know of a doctor or doctors that are writing prescriptions of Dextromethorphan ## Does anybody know of doctors prescribing Dextromethorphan for chronic pain ## Hello, Ken! How are you? At this time, it is being investigated for treating pain, but it hasn't been approved for it, yet. It is, however, available over the counter in some products as cold remedies. If you want it prescribed by a doctor for pain, you may need to see a specialist that knows specifics of pain management and how/why it can help. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? What is your general location? That information might enable someone to recommend a good doctor in your area. Dextromethorphan is most commonly used to relieve coughing and it may cause side effects, such a naus...
