yellow round pill 255
Good Morning, Is the 255 yellow pill still available for purchase at retail pharmacies? I used to buy it at Costco and have not seen it there lately. thank you ## Hi Maggie, Based on my research, the round yellow tablet marked 255 is identified as OTC Chlorpheniramine Maleate (4mg); which is used to treat allergy and cold symptoms. If you believe Costco may have stopped carrying it for one reason or another, I would suggest contacting their pharmacy department to see if that's really the case, or if they simply forgot to restock it. Have you checked with any other pharmacies in your area as well?

how long after the expiration date can I take chlorpheniramine maleate 4mg?
How long after the expiration date can I take Chlorpheniramine Melate 4mg? I have a bottle that expired 11/2013. Thank you. ## Hello, Rochelle! How are you? Medications tend to lose efficacy over time, so it is most likely best to just dispose of it and purchase a new supply. This is available over the counter and rather inexpensive. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I did purchase a new bottle. This is for my 14 - 15lb dog - do you know what the correct dosage would be for her? Previously I had a toy poodle 7 - 8 lbs & the vet prescribed 1/4 tab twice daily for allergies. Thank you for your help!

White Round RMB pill
White Round pill with R M B printed on one half of one side (the rest is blank) with a little divider divot underneath it. The letters seem slightly spaced apart with the M being slightly higher printed than the R and B. Got it in Macao from a doctor for having canker sores on my throat along with two other pills: Amoxy 500 capsule (maroonish on one half that has the words printed and a blank dark yellow half), and a small, oval, orange pill that both sides of CP stamped on the upper half and a funny looking L (where the end of the bottom part of the L is slightly curved up as if someone drew a comma too close to it) with a divot separating the CP and L. Was instructed to take the first two (1) three times a day, with the orange oval one being (2) three times a day. I can only assume th...

histatussin for adults
I would like to know where I can find Histatussin for Adults either in my area or on the web. I live in Port St. Lucie Florida ## Hello, Carole! How are you? From what I can find, Histatussin isn't available in the U.S. It contains Chlorpheniramine and Ephedrine, the latter of which can be very dangerous, so such formulations have been banned here. Learn more Chlorpheniramine details here. Learn more Ephedrine details here. Thus, ordering it would also not be permitted. Is there anything else I can help with?
