I have severe back and hip pain. Is it safe to take norco 4.5 hours after taking a 500mg naproxen?

The FDA does warn that Norco carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have severe pain in the groin and am unable to walk... Can diclofenac (voveran) be used with ibugesic? The pain is worse with movement... A long journey, stress and cold climate has caused it... ## No, Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, and Ibugesic contains Ibuprofen, which is in the same drug class, so they should not be taken together. Doubling up increases the risk of bleeding, stomach irritation, and stomach ulceration, according to FDA reports. Is there anything else I can help with?

proper disposal of Voltaren gel
1 Reply RSS
How do I dispose of Voltaren gel if I do not have used coffee grounds or kitty litter? Walgreens was not helpful with this question... ## If you take it in to them, they should be able to dispose of it for you. I've never known a pharmacy to refuse doing so. Alternatively, since this is not something that is commonly abused, the NIH does state that you could just leave it in it's own sealed container and throw it in with your regular trash. Another option is to ask a local coffee place if they would mind giving you some used grounds that you can use to get rid of it. Is this the only medication you have to dispose of?

Have had shots and pills of Levofloxaci and prednisone with Guaiatussin cough surup. I feel better after taking but keeps coming back. I have been using Fluticasone Propionate nasal spray and allergy aller-technology everyday too. Is it time for a specialist? ## Yes, I think it is likely time for you to see an ENT. According to NIH reports, there is usually some underlying cause for such frequent repeated issues. How often do you take these medications? The Fluticasone is usually used twice a day, in severe cases. The Aller-tec, might not be the right medication to help you. You may need something stronger.

what is Auroflam-MX used for
13 Replies RSS
is it a substitute for Flamar? i'm having pain from recent excesses in physical exertion. Flamar was recommended but the pharmacist gave us Auroflam ## Hello, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. Do you feel like the Auroflam has been helping at all? Based on my research, Auroflam-MX and Flamar are both listed as containing the active ingredient Diclofenac. So it seems as though they are one in the same medication. If you need any form of verification, Auroflam-MX is manufactured by Aurochem Pharmaceuticals Ltd., based in India. You can always contact them for a comparison of "inactive" ingredients, if you feel the need. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Diclofenac Details I hope this info helps! ## Flamar MX is effective every time and is rea...
