Apetito tablets - What do they do?
7 Replies RSS
What is the story with these tablets? Do you get a big butt and big hips? I'm very interested to know and am tempted to take them cos im not happy with my body shape. However i read a story of a girl where she took the tablets and only one butt cheek grew, and i think it's now irreversible! ## They contain the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat allergic reactions. It is not safe to try to use them just to gain weight, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so. Just like any other medication, it carries the risk of side effects and adverse reactions. Learn more: And yes, it would be reversible, because the weight gain only lasts as long as you are taking the medication. Are there any other questions or...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
625 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At the people's pharmacy 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 mon...

Flonase and Cataracts
35 Replies RSS
Has anyone that has used Flonase got cataracts? I have them because of it and nasonex. Are there any class action suits against the makers of this? I would not have used it if I had known. ## Have the doctors definitively tied your cataracts to the medications? We have had other posts on here about vision issues developing from people using these types of medications. The problem, however, is proving they are what caused it. And no, I'm sorry, but I know of no class action suits in regards to this. ## My eye surgeon said they were definately caused by steroids and the only one I have used is flonase. She said she could tell by the location of my cataracts, they are posterior and can only be caused by steroid use. If enough people have this kind, I would think it could be proven. ## ...

terpin hydrate availability
13 Replies RSS
Where can you get turpin hydrate elixer for mucous relief? ## From what I've read, the FDA banned terpin hydrate back in the mid-1980's. Apparently the reasoning behind this ban was that they were never able to prove it's effectiveness. However, contrary to their opinion on the medication's efficacy, I think many people would still agree that it works better than a lot of the stuff on today's shelf. Have you tried any other approaches for mucous relief in the meantime? They say ginger root is also good for breaking up phlegm and mucus from the respiratory tract...but mixing it with lemon juice and raw honey can be beneficial as well; at least from my own experience. I hope this helps! ## Wonderful news! Turpin hydrate is NOT banned, although it's no longer carrie...

## perscribed for cough ## I am currently taking Chertusiin AC syrup for extreme coughing due to a bad case of bronchitis. I have not had a good nights sleep for the past 3 nights since the coughing worsens at night. There are no other cough medications that seems to work. This is helping. ## I was prescribed this for allergies and persistent dry cough. Dosage = 1 teaspoon (5ml), bur it does not work at this dosage, so I take 2. Any one else have this experience? ## Cyndi, yes. I was prescribed this for sever cough/cold. Was told to take 1-2 teaspoons every 4 hours but I have had to take 4 teaspoons every 4 hours to start to get relief. I'm going to call the doctor for a stronger dose or something else.

What are the active ingredients in Trinalin? Trinalin was discontinued and I have not found a substitute medication that works as good as Trinalin did. Where can I obtain prescription? I have tried Claritin, Allegra, Singulair and Zirtec but not one works a good as trinalin did. Help! ## I have not found a med.that works as well with my system as trinalin 703. The other med.make me shake, please let me know what would have the same ingredients. ## Dystonic reactions are normal, and frequently occur with this medication, it is no longer approved for marketing in the U.S. under current FDA standards. Thus, I am not sure what would be equivalent, there is nothing that has the same ingredients. Keith, what other medications have you tried?

the medicine Save the Baby

Is the formula for Lee's Save the Baby (liquid in the glass bottle NOT the rub on salve) patent protected, does anyone know how to obtain the formula ## It was made by the Lee's company and yes, it is patent protected. The reason it is no longer available is that it contained Camphor, yes, even in the liquid that was taken internally and the FDA has recognized this as being unsafe. Camphor is now only approved to be used topically. As to the other ingredients, I am sorry, I have been unable to discover that. Does anyone else know? ## We used Save the Baby in the 1970s and got it in Maine. It was made by a family in New York in the late 1800s. It contained Canadian Balsam and was suspended in a lard base. I would heat the bottle up and it would melt into the liquid. Then I would ...

I am looking for tripelennamine. As a pharmacist I clearly remember 60mg then sr 100mg tabs being available. Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra together could not work as well pbz. I worked at smoke filled bowling alley back then and pbz with Sudafed were required. ## According to "Martindale the Complete Drug Reference" & "Physician's Desk Reference", Pyribenzamine (tripelennamine hcl) is no longer produced in brand or generic versions in the USA. It is said to still be available in bulk powder, something like a minimum order of 25 gram bottles, strictly sold only to a USA pharmacy, or a USA "compounding pharmacy". It is also noted to be manufactured in about 4 or 5 other countries, but those countries are based in or around Europe. Others have suggested looking ...

ok to take 2 year expired cheratussin ac

Found my old bottle but expired July 2012.. is it OK to take it? ## Liquids have a much shorter shelf life, because they tend to degrade faster than other forms of medications and they can also turn rancid, which could make you ill. Thus, it would be best to just dispose of it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## it is fine sorry i didn't see this before. I have saved mined up to 4 yrs. & it worked.... I work for a chemist & he told me aspirin integrity stays intact 30 yrs. However this is NOT the formula for all drugs, but from personal exp. my cough med, stayed intact fine. Ever notice on all drugs now-a-days says expires in one year. what a miracle that everything goes bad in 12 months at the same time. ## We have the same thing, 2 year old Ceratussin AC and hubby ...

My son is 9 yrs old and weighs 89 lbs. How much Brompheniramine-DM should I administer and how often can I give it to him? ## Has this medication been prescribed for him? You should always follow his doctor's dosing instructions, or those provided on the packaging. Is he on any other medications? Does have any chronic medical conditions?

how long will i take propan multivitamins to have ? ## HOW LONG I WILL TAKE PROPAN MULTIVITAMINS TO ENSURE THAT IT WILL EFFECT? ## Well, since it is just a multivitamin, there is no harm in taking it everyday, on a long-term basis, as long as you don't overdo it by taking more than you should. As to how long before it has an effect, this isn't something that is really studied, since they are supplements, rather than actual drugs. Beneficial effects won't happen overnight, but it will immediately start to improve your levels of the vital nutrients it contains. It's listed as containing: Buclizine 25mg, Iron 80mg, nicotinamide 10mg, B1 10mg, B12 5mcg, B2 1mg and B6 5mg. Are there any other comments or questions? ## what is the possible time if i am going to take propan wit...
