I have severe muscle pain and joint pain in elbows,legs,shoulders,lower back . Been taking it for about a year. Feels like same symptoms I once had when I found out I was allergic to statins. But it was so long ago I don't remember how long before pain stopped. ## Hello, Turridu! How are you? If you were on it for about a year, it might take several weeks for these side effects to taper off and go away. If they continue after about a month of being off of it, then you should consult your doctor as there may be something else going on. Other side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness and headache. How are you feeling, now? ## Still sore but not half as bad, I have been drinking lots of water and eating fruits and veggies trying to purge the meds from my system don...

amox clav for sinus infection
Hi, I am taking 1000-62.5 amox-clav er. 2 pills in am and 2 pills in the pm. Is this too much to take? ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? Was that the dosage prescribed for you? Doctor's will sometimes prescribe higher amounts of an antibiotic, if an infection is particularly severe or hasn't responded to prior treatment. However, you may experience more severe side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Are you experiencing any side effects from it? Has the infection improved?

How long is this medicine good for? How long can you take it after the expiration date? ## Hello, Felicia! How are you?

This medication is commonly used to treat stomach ulcers and IBS, its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence, blurred vision and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

side effects of tablet b long
I need to know what happens when you mis. Clarithromyc 550 & Ondansetron 8mg. This was prescribed for a friend and it says on the nausea pill it should NOT be taken with this antibiotic.... Help please... ## Hello, Dianne! How are you? Yes, that is correct, they should not be taken together. Doing so can increase the QT interval of the heart rhythm, which could be very dangerous. It may also increase he levels of Ondansetron that is absorbed. It would be best for this person to see their doctor and replace one of these medications. The antibiotic may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, headache and diarrhea. How is your friend doing?

Meclizine -- Tired as a side effect
I am a 19 yr old male, and am prescribed 12.5mg meclizine, three times a day, because i have vertigo. However, taking this makes me very tired. Do you think a doctor would prescribe me something like adderall to counter the drowsiness that I am experiencing? ## Adderall is not likely as it is strictly controlled and addictive. You would most likely be prescribed Modafinil which is used for Excessive Daytime Sleepiness and Narcolepsy. ## An important question is, how long have you been taking it? Meclizine is an antihistamine that is commonly used to treat or prevent nausea and vertigo. However, most of these medications reach their peak of side effects at around 4 to 6 weeks of use and then, as your body gets used to the drug, the side effects should start to lessen in severity. In such...
