what does a 50mg toprol-xl look like
A MO ## found a pill don't know what it is. i have a teenagerworried about what this is and don't know where it come from. all it says is 5xl ## Toprol Image Pill Image ## 5 XL Pill Image This is Ditropan Extended Release 5mgs, the generic drug name is Oxybutynin. This is used to relieve urinary frequency, incontinence and related conditions. However, the real question here is why your teen had it, and what they thought it was. Many, many times, drugs are sold as other than what they really are, it is possible that because of the 5XL on it, he bought it or was given it as Oxycontin 5mgs or something else. So while this one is nothing dangerous, a few pills taken occasionally will not even make them pee less or anything, if they have normal bladder function. You have to take it r... ...

tablet form of fioricet (no codiene)
I am so sad that this is no longer available in a tablet, but only in capsule form. I usually take 3/4 of a pill and chop it and carry the pieces in a small plastic bag. Why would you take more medication than you need to solve a problem. I see on this blog that several have been chopping the pill in half, and like me this is one of the only resources I have left in medication for migraines. I'm allergic to a lot of medication. If only someone knew how we already suffer, they'd never make it harder for us. ## So relieved that I am not alone in my need and want for Fiorinal in the tablet form. The capsules do nothing to relieve the pain and upset stomach of a migraine headache. Fioricet is just as ineffective. Does anyone know if the tablets are available from a Canadian Pharmacy... ...

anti-inflammatory drug Arthrexin
I AM TAKING ARTHREXIN TABLETS FOR LOWER BACK PAIN FOR THE LAST13 YEARS BUT AFTER A STROKE [12/11/14] I WAS TOLD TO STOP TAKING IT. HOWEVER THE LOWER BACK PAIN STARTED AGAIN.... CAN I TAKE ANTI-INFLAMATORY [ARTHREXIN] TOGETHER WITH ALL THE MEDS FOR HBP AND CHOLESTROL?? [LIKE STATIN] ## My husband has always taken Arthrexin for his joint pains. He is now on Warfarin and would like to know if he can take them together as the doctor has strongly advised against this and nothing else seems to work. ## Hello, Avi and Linda! How are you both? No, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories can be very risky in both situations and should be avoided. If something for pain is needed, each respective doctor should be consulted to discover what medication can be taken safely. Is there anything else I can help... ...

Liver Enzymes Raised by Modafinil
I have major depression, which is only one out of 4 Mental Health diagnoses I have that disabled me since 1985. The major depression is resistant to treatment. I have been on so many combinations of anti-depressant, anti-psychotic and mood stabilizers that my Psychiatrists in the past and the one I go to now, did not know what to do. About 5 years ago, as a last resort, I was put on Provigil as a way to help me get motivated and not be depresses. I now take high doses of Modafinil, and my AST blood level for my liver is 40 (should be 10-35, and my ALT is 134 (should be 6-40. My Psychiatrist, PCP, and I have agreed that in my case, where I could do nothing for myself, had countless suicide attempts, and hardly ever got out of bed, quality of life is a priority--not quantity of life. I wa... ...

name of height increasing medicine
i am living in chennai and i am 21 years old.......please mention me the name of tablet available in medicals like apolo or in a med plus.. ## Hi, Pooja! I'm sorry, but there is nothing you can take that will cause you to grow in stature at 21. Once you are at this age, you are done growing and nothing can be done about it. While you were younger, there are some growth factors that could have been used to help ensure that you reach your full growth potential, but even they cannot override genetics and enable you to grow taller than you are naturally intended to be. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

could this have caused infertility??
I took Accutane when I was 17 for a few months and then a month when I turned 18 so maybe 5-6 months all together, im 21 now and me and my fiancé have been trying for a baby for about 8 months now and nothing is happening, my periods are irregular so I never really know when im ovulating so that might be the cause, I started looking into Accutane as a cause of infertility and im overwhelmed with everything that ive found. Can someone please tell me if Accutane could be the cause of infertility?? ## Hello, Bluegrassgirl! How are you? If your periods are irregular, it's most likely to be related to that. Years ago, when I had the same problem, it took well over a year for me to become pregnant with my son. Have you consulted an OB Gyn? That should be able to do some testing to le... ...

pregabalina, for spinal cord damage
I had a laminectomy, T-10-T-11 and there was damage to my spinal cord. I was recently placed on 75mg of Alond, pregabalina to help with possible spinal cord recovery, regeneration. ## Both of the medications you mentioned have been used to treat nerve pain, but there is nothing about them regenerating anything. Pfizer has even abandoned testing of Alond and no longer plans to pursue its production.

Here's a Cheap Alternative to Suprep
I see lots of people here who need a cheaper alternative to Suprep. The Mayo Clinic recommends 8 Bisacodyl(Ducolax) tablets and 2 bottles of Magnesium Citrate split over 2 doses. This is just as good as Suprep and produces the same result. Many other clinics have similar recommendations. Do an internet search for "Ducolax and Magnesium Citrate bowel prep instructions". In my opinion, Suprep is just a convenience. The end result for either method is the same. You take laxatives and drink clear fluids until nothing comes out but clear fluids. It's not rocket science. ## Thank you for providing this information, William! I am sure that it will help many. But, before anyone follows these instructions, please check with your doctor and make sure that it is safe for you to do so. ... ...

How tall are you? Do you take a multivitamin? That can sometimes be a simple solution if you're underweight due to a deficiency in one or more vital nutrients. Have you consulted your doctor? They may need to do some checking to see if they can determine a cause. However, there is also a possibility that you're just naturally meant to be this way and nothing will change it.

15mg of Adderall xr = how much vyvanse?
I've been taking Adderall xr 15mg for three weeks. First couple of days I felt sleepy, groggy, third and fourth days i felt a surge of physical well-being, as well as focused , and a balanced state of mind. However, all that lasted another couple of days. After the first week of Adderall xr 15mg, i felt nothing. It's been three weeks now, and I still feel nothing. I am going to ask my doc to switch to Vyvanse. However, i know that 10mg of Axr is = to 30mg of Vyvanse. But if i'm taking 15 mg of Axr, how much Vyvanse should I take to equal the Axr dose? But, aside from that, do you all think I should stay on the Axr a bit longer? give it a little more time to work? i've read that sometimes it takes over a month to kick in. thanks! ## I am on vyvanse and wanting to switch t... ...

identifying large brown gel capsule
Large oval capsule brown in color with nothing else on it, I only notice a gold colored air bubble which seems to be the oil of gel inside. Would you be able to assist me with what this might be? Thank You ## Sorry, there is no way to positively ID it, other than if you would pay to have it lab tested. You can be sure it is not a US prescription drug though, as per FDA requirements, all prescription drugs legall sold in the US must have unique imprints on them for ID purposes. There are not such requirements though for any over the counter items, supplements, or even foreign drugs. There are many pills on the market that meet that description, so I am very sorry, I wish we could help you more, but with no imprint, it is impossible to tell you what it is. ...

What does d-amphetamine salt combo do?
I took on 20 mg capsule and in a hour nothing happened. Its been about 8 hours now and I'm wondering if i need a bigger dose. When i took nothing happened that people warned me about. I didn't get more focused, i didn't get headaches, and i didn't lose my appetite. Im wondering if i should get a bigger dose or not. Thanks in advance for all your replies. ## Adderall (amphetamine + dextroamphetamine) is a stimulant drug. So I'd imagine you should be experiencing at least a noticeable difference in energy levels. However it is not uncommon for nothing to happen, as medications can and usually do affect everyone differently. Some people get great results, but there are others that it inevitably just doesn't work for no matter how many they take. Unfortunately when i... ...

Medicare has denied my Dexilant 60mg
Medicare just quit covering my Dexilant prescription and I am having acid reflux horrible again. My dr is trying to get them to approve it because nothing else I've tried ever helped noticably. What other GERD med is most similar to Dexilant? It has to be a generic form, or medicare won't cover it. ## Hello, Cherie! How are you? The reason they don't want to cover it is because it's not available as a generic, but there are several others that are, plus some are available over the counter. Two would be Lansoprazole and Omeprazole, so you may want to ask your doctor about trying them. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
