Hi.. Ive been taking rapidus frequently, sometimes i took 3 or 4 times a day during a severe attack of gout. Can i take a liver and kidney suplement medicine to protect my liver and kidney and continuesly take rapidus 50. Thank you.. Wating for your answer ## Hello, Nicolas! How are you? It should not be taken more than 3 times a day. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. As to the supplement medications, I'm sorry, but I am unable to answer your question, without more specific details. Can you please post back with more information on the specific ones you wish to take? Thank you!

I have pain in my toes. Could this be from losartin? I was taking losartin 50/12.5 htzc now am taking losartin with potassium 25 mg ## Hello, Phyllis! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. It might be, if you're developing gout, or are low in metabolites from dehydration, so it would be best to have it checked out by your doctor to be sure. You may need a dosage adjustment, or you may need to switch to a completely different medication. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. Why was the medication changed?

grapefruit essential oil and colchicine reactivity
2 Replies RSS
I know the fruit and juice can cause problems but I'm curious about the essential oil. I use an all natural body cream that has grapefruit essential oil in it. Should I stop using it? ## Hello, Anissa! How are you? No, that shouldn't affect your medication. It is the way the grapefruit juice acts on various digestive enzymes and liver enzymes that causes reduced efficacy of some medications. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Colchicine as possibly including nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain and stomach cramping. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the prompt reply. Truly. It's appreciated.

colchicine and 5mg oxycodone
1 Reply RSS
Can I take both these medication for gout? Thank You! ## Hello, Bernard! How are you? You can, as long as they have both been prescribed for you and your doctor approves. The FDA classifies Oxycodone as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Colchicine may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness and neutropenia. Is there anything else I can help with?
