Veltin - max temperature for retaining potency
Post a Reply
I just received a prescription for Veltin and the mail carrier left it in my mailbox. The temperature outside is close to 90 degrees and when I took the tube out of box it felt extremely hot. I don't know long it was out in the heat. I'm assuming maybe 4 hours. The box label indicates it should be stored at 77 degrees and it definitely was hotter than that. I called the pharmacy & they said it was still fine but I have read that the hot temperatures could deteriorate the product and cause potency loss. Just curious if anyone else has had this experience or knows whether it's still good?

lichen plantus

Looking to find something that will help my lichen plantus. Also if anyone has ilichen plantus has it affected their hearing,? Or their balance or teeth? ## It affecting your hearing, balance or teeth would depend on the areas of your body it is affecting, since it can be different for everyone that suffers from it. What have you tried to treat it? Since it can be inflammatory, some people have good luck with NSAIDs, but they aren't appropriate for all. ## I was diagnosed w/lichen plantus 2013. my dermatologist knew immediately it was my HB meds hydrochloride. My white bloods cells were being attack. the LP affected both legs from knees down. I was miserable 4 months. I still suffer, however, it's controlled using clobetasol ointment 3x a/day & camphor menthol 0.5% lotion (a...

I would lilke to know more information on tocoderm acida retinoico ## You can buy it in Mexico, for a lot cheaper and it's available over the counter. I buy it in Cozumel every year (I go on cruises). I've also bought it from Ensenada, Mexico. ## I buy tocoderm .5 in Algadones. I like it, but loved the results of epitrel better. Cannot find it in Algadones anymore so I'm just buying tocoderm. I use it nightly. Just wash your face in the morning. Much cheaper than in the USA. $15 for name brand, $3 for generic. I am going to try the name brand next to see if there is a difference. Pharmacist said only difference was the price. If I can buy epitrel in Algadones, I would like to know where. ## This medication is used to treat acne, skin bumps, and wrinkles. The NIH lists its ty...

accutane long term side effects
1901 Replies RSS
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Where can I get acid-mantle creme
7 Replies RSS
I have been trying to find a jar of acid-mantle crème but Doak pharmacies no longer make it. Does anyone know if some one else makes it? ## There's actually another brand I found by the name of "Risabal-ph". They make an acid-mantle creme that's used as a moisturizer for a variety of different skin conditions (including dry, rough, itchy, irritated skin and even goes so far as balancing it's Ph levels). You can find a 16oz jar of it on amazon for around $43. I haven't tried it myself, but after living in such a dry climate for so long, I might need all the moisture I can get. There are also a good number of reviews online if you're looking for more feedback on it. I hope this info helps! ## I have been looking for a jar as well. I can not believe they wo...

Accutane and Infertility
612 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

Years ago, given to each of us once per day for keeping mosquitos from biting & if they bit us, would not cause problems. ## Where can I find Sulfur and Cream of Tarter Wafers?

Taking another pack after finishing the 21 pills
5 Replies RSS
Hello, i just want to ask, is it ok to take another pack after finishing tge 21pills? I did not follow the 7 day free pill. The purpose of taking the pills is for my acne breakouts and thinking that it could help regularized my mens. Is it normal to have a delayed mens since this is my first timee to use the product? I am just curious if its safe or what. Or the 7days free pill must be followed?? Looking forward for your reply. Thank you. ## The 7 days free is what allows you to have a period, when taking oral contraceptives, according to the NIH. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. Thus, it is best to take those 7 days off. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi! I also have question about nordette pills. I f...

The tube I got from the pharamacy expires in 1 yr. Is 1 yr normal? It is for clobetasol propionate. Can I use it after the yr is up. The prescription tube is for the spray. Is the spray more potent then the ointment as it seems to work quicker but makes me very tired. ## I was given a prescription for Clobetasol. The prescription box says not to use it after 1 year. I live in N.J. Is it normal for Clobetasol to expire after one yr? The Clobetasol is advised to be used once in the am and once in the pm. I am getting terrible bruising in the area of my arm most affected by psoriasis. ## Yes, your pharmacy would not give you an inaccurate expiration date. After a certain period of time, all medications begin to degrade and start to lose efficacy, so once expired, it is best to dispose of t...

Clobetasol Propionate Cream Usp 05 What Is It Used For
23 Replies RSS
I was given this tube of cream but, whatis it suppose to to do. ## I'm curious as to why someone would give you a prescription based tube of cream without telling you what it was. Bad business... Clobetasol propionate cream and ointment contain the active compound clobetasol propionate; a synthetic corticosteroid, for topical dermatologic use. It is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Treatment beyond 2 consecutive weeks is not recommended, and the total dosage should not exceed 50 g/week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## I was given this foam and because my scalp sores are...

what is betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina cream used for
25 Replies RSS
I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is this cream available in the States? Is it SAFE? ## @ERQ, The combination of Betametasona + Clotrimazol + Gentamicina is marketed towards treating various skin conditions such as pain, inflammation, itching, bacterial/fungal infections, etc. From what I've seen mentioned in another thread here, this cream is allegedly available with your doctor's prescription here in the US. However further reports suggest that it costs only a fraction of the price down in Mexico for the same ointment (i.e. $30 in the US and less than $2 in Mexico). Given this information, my suggestion would be to just get it prescribed in the US since the cost of driving to Mexico and back from Texas is probably a lot more than the difference you'd end up saving in the price...

Hello, i have scars in my hands and legs right from my childhood, due to mosquito bites, now i am 25 years, i took many treatment, but nothing helped me, whenever mosquito bites i again get scars, can i use zensalic oinment to reduce this scar? Please suggest me if any other options available to cure my scars permanently and in a fast manner, since i am going to get married i want to get rid of it as soon as possible ## It is very unusual for mosquito bites to cause scarring, according to NIH reports. There was one very bad experience where my son experienced a lot of them, at once, but he did not have any scarring. Did you dig at them and rip them up? That is what usually causes scarring, just like with acne. As to removing them fast and permanently, I am afraid that there is no guaran...

Accutane No Long Term Side Effects - Great Results

I am a male and wanted to share my Accutane story with others who are thinking of starting the treatment but are worried about the horror stories you read everywhere. I started my accutane treatment when I was about 24 (Maybe 23) and sought treatment to relieve the severe "bacne" more specifically cystic acne I had been dealing with since I was 16 y/o and not only did it make me very self conscious but they also caused me a great deal of pain as I would get these huge zits that that often times would not even form any type of white head and they were extremely painful. After years and years of every acne treatment under the sun (pills, creams, soaps, diet changes), I finally said enough is enough and went to my dermatologist to learn more about accutane. As I am sure many people...
