Nothing like this happened in 1 years. threw my alprazolam ! Help What should I do , Hav been in the dumppster alread ## Hi Tina, Sorry to hear about what happened. We all make and learn from mistakes like this at some point in our lives, so you shouldn't get down on yourself about it. But I think your best bet would probably be to contact the doctor who prescribed it and see if he/she is willing to do anything for you as far as replacement is concerned. Due to the type of heavily abused substance alprazolam is, I'd expect a fair amount of resistance on the Dr's behalf, though it doesn't hurt to try? If nothing else, maybe he/she can at least recommend certain OTC supplements to help alleviate whatever potential risk there might be for withdrawals until you get your next...

round white with numbers 54-823 ## I just got a prescription for Propylthiouracl for my hyperthyroid and I later had a fainting spell with severe nausea. I'm wondering if I got the right medication? The pill is small, white and round with nothing on one side and 480 Westword on the other. Can you please confirm that this is PTU? Thank You ## Hi Charlotte. I am always happy to help if I can. The pill you received is Propylthiourcil 50mg. However, if it is not the same brand of pill that you were used to getting, it is possible that something in the inactive ingredients may disagree with you and be causing the nausea. You may want to speak to your doctor, either to get something to help prevent the nausea or ask the pharmacy if they can order in the brand that you were previously taki...

alprazolam 0 25mg methadone i takeing having getting off of
1 Reply RSS
I'm taking 180mg of methadone & 0.25 of alprazolam 3times a day I stopped alprazolam with a great deal of discomfort sleepless nights & was at that jumping off place. Is there a safe way to use both of these drugs? ## Hello, Geronimo! How are you? What type of problem were you having while taking both of them? They can both cause sedation and depression of the central nervous system, but unless they were causing you some problem or symptoms, there'd be no reason to worry. Many people do take such combinations regularly. The FDA lists both these medications as also carrying the risk of being habit forming and they may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, irritability and constipation. Did your doctor tell you to stop taking it? It can be d...

Alprazolam g3720

How many Alprazolam 0.5MG tablets is equivalent to 1 whole pill of a Zanax bar? ## @KingApache, You're asking how many 0.5mg Alprazolam tablets equal a whole Xanax bar, but an answer to this question would clearly be dependent upon what dose the Xanax pill is... If it is a 2mg Xanax bar, that would be equivalent to four 0.5mg tabs; not taking the extra binders/fillers into account. The imprint G 3720 also signifies a generic version of Xanax, which means its potency may or may not be exactly in line with what you might expect from a brand name tablet. I hope this helps!
