Broke open fluoxetine
4 Replies RSS
I decided to break open my 40mg capsule and swallow it. BAD IDEA. It burned my throat like no tomorrow and made my whole head numb....Gross tasting and made me vomit. Whoever might think this a good idea... Just don't do it! Oh and it made me feel like I was choking to death also....Great...Worse than the anxiety I already had. Perfect... ## It is to prevent such effects, that they are made into a capsule form. Many medications will do odd things if you ingest them improperly, that is why tablets and capsules were invented. And yes, most of them also taste disgusting. Thanks for posting the warning for others! Are you feeling better, now? ## Whoever has to take fluoxetine make sure they drink lot's of water with it .I had just finished a night shift and took my capsule with mayb... ...

what kind of pill has a V a C and an inverted V on it.
1 Reply RSS
I came across a capsule that is white and green. In thin letters there's a "V" and a little lover a "C" and lower than that and lined up with the "V" is what appears to be an inverted "V" that could be an "A". I actually came with some mosaic materials I ordered. ## Never mind. It turned out to be a gift. When you open the pill called a "Happy Pill" there's a tiny blank note inside wrapped in a delicate copper wire. Very cute, but who would have thought that was what was in there. If you hold it vertically, the Vs and C make a smiley face. That's a relief. ...

what do the contents of focalin xr look like inside the capsule? im asking becuse i feel my sons medication was tampered with.
2 Replies RSS
I think that someone empty the contents of the capsules because for a couple of weekends that I got my son they were empty and then I mentioned it to his father that they were empty the next weekend I got him there capsules came with a baby formula looking substance inside them. ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? Which capsules are you asking about? Without knowing the specifics, such as those dosage and markings on it, I can't research this information for you. Can you please post back and clarify? Thanks! ## Inside the capsule of focalin xr, are a bunch of tiny beads. Myself and my son has been on it for a while now, and at first, his was sprinkled onto applesauce. So, I'd say, yes, someone tampered w his meds. It is NOT a powder. Next refill, open the capsule and see for yoursel... ...

capsule you can open in half power form ## Are there any markings on it?

Quitting after 3 days

Hi thank you for any insight..I've only been on Effexor xr 37.5 for three days and I'm freaking out! My chest is heavy legs are tingly im out of it but highly anxious and tired all at the same time. I've read tons of discussions about sticking it out but have made the choice to discontinue. I spoke with a pharmacist who said it'd be ok to just stop since I seem to be really sensitive to it. Only haven taken 3 doses, He said I will probably not have any withdrawals but if I do to open a capsule and sprinkle half on something. I'm looking for asstrances. I'm scared on this stuff but am also scared to just stop. He gave me assurances though that at such a low dose for such a short period, I should be ok. It's Saturday and Dr isn't in until Tuesday, no way am... ...

Nitrofur Macr 100 Mg / consumption

I have difficulty swallowing large pills or capsules. I removed the three small pills from the capsule, crushed them, and swallowed them with jelly. Is there any problem with this method? ## This is a sustained release formulation of the medication and should not be opened and crushed in this manner, as it may result in too much of the medication being released at once. Learn more Nitrofurantoin details here. If you can't swallow them whole, then you should contact your doctor about using an alternative medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

What Is The Antidote Of Nitro Sun 10
1 Reply RSS
I want to take one person out from the addiction of Nitro sun 10. Please help me ## Hi Sumit, Usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. If the Nitro sun is a controlled release tablet or capsule, then you wouldn't be able to cut the pill into fractionated doses and would likely have to have other means of intervention. Have you confronted this person about helping them, and are they open to the idea of it? ...

i need help with the concerta alza 36
2 Replies RSS
I told my friend that he shouldent open the capsule and take the white and yellow part because its not meant to be taken like that and i told him it would make him hallucinat and it would make him addicted and he doesn't believe me. The pills are Concerta time release alza 36. Please someone answer because i dont want my best friend addicted to Ritalin. ## The concern with doing that with time released medications is the risk of overdose, because someone could get too much of the medication, at once. However, it may not necessarily make him hallucinate or cause addiction, but the risk is there. These risks are present with any medication that is abused and the overdose risk from defeating the time released mechanism. Typical side effects of this medication may include nausea, headac... ...

propranolol and blood cell problems
Post a Reply
I have been on 80 mg off propanolol for about 10 years now. Works great for migraine control but I have Reynards as side effect. Main worry is after blood test due to palpitations ( atopic and not a worry but possibly due to propanolol I think) I have low red blood cell number and platelets. They are about to start testing me for MDS ..basically bone marrow failure. I am very young for this apparently, only 45 whereas most are over 70 and I don't feel too unwell. I read propanolol can cause blood cell issues very rarely. Anyone has experience? I have opened up my slow release capsule and removed a quarter of the beads. I am cutting down rather than face a bone marrow biopsy in a months time of levels are any worse. Any thoughts guys? ...

pink oval shaped pill with no imprints
2 Replies RSS
more of a capsule shape pink in color no imprint on either side ## Hello, Judy! How are you? Without any imprints, it's difficult to narrow down an identification with any certainty. We can rule it out as being a U.S. manufactured and approved prescription tablet, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. That means that it's most likely an over the counter product and that leaves it wide open to many possibilities. Just as an example, I have some tablets matching this description sitting on my shelf right now, they contain 25mgs of Diphenhydramine, a store brand of Benadryl, which is used to treat allergies. Learn more Benadryl details here. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else have any idea of... ...

White Yellow Green Pill
2 Replies RSS
White, yellow, and I believe dark green, possibly brown capsule type pill. No markings. It is a solid pill, not one that can be broken open. Half is the green color and the other half is split yellow and white. ## Hi Carolyn, U.S. law requires that all prescription drugs have unique letters or numbers (sometimes in addition to a logo of some kind) imprinted on the tablets or capsules so the medication can be identified. Odds are that it could either be manufactured outside of the U.S. or that it is an over the counter medication, as OTC meds aren't required to be listed in the drug databases. If you're able to, I would consider taking the pill over to your local pharmacy and having it analyzed by their team to see if they can come up with anything. And as a last resort, you coul... ...

1 Reply RSS
They have no identification code. One is half red and half white. The other is a solid dark purple, and yes they are both capsules. They are normal sized capsules. ## HI, Dannyboy! How are you? If there are no markings on them, then we can rule them out as being U.S. approved and manufactured prescription medications, since they are all required to have markings to enable their identification. That means that they are most likely something that's available over the counter and that leaves it open to a pretty large list of possibilities that include both medications and supplements. Where did you find them? Some products are regional, so knowing the general location may help to narrow it down. Does anyone else recognize these capsules? ...

Kadian ER 200mg tampered with from drug company
Post a Reply
I received my prescribed kadian in the factory sealed bottle. It did not appear to have been tampered with. However,I noticed several times I got no relief from my medication after taking it but did not think much of it until I noticed one night as I went to take my kadian it did not sound right, kadian had small round bead type substance inside a capsule and when shaken they make a defiant sound. My capsule made no sound so my mother and I checked the entire bottle and found two more made no sound, we opened each of them one capsule was completely empty, and the other two contained a sugar like substance and cotton like material.has anyone else had kadian or medication from Actavis that was tampered with. ...

Avinza/Morphin sulfate beads Easily to be Tampered With
1 Reply RSS
Is the brandname RX product more tamper proof. Like Tylenol in capsule form there is a band holding both parts of the capsule together. The Avinza is easily pulled apart. At one time I opened the capsule and tasted the beads and it tasted just like salt. What can you do? ## Prescription products are required to be packaged in tamper proof containers, when they are shipped to your pharmacy. The actual tablets or capsules are considered protected via this method, because they are not opened, until your pharmacist or pharmacy tech opens them, with leaves minimal chance for them to be tampered with. The salty taste can be normal for this medication, because it is manufactured from the base salt Sulfate, that doesn't mean it was tampered with, however, if you feel that it was, then pleas... ...

Is Gimalxina Amoxicilina 500 mg from Mexico Counterfeit? i.e. Placebo?
3 Replies RSS
I have taken amoxicilina many times during my life; bought in the US and in Honduras. This last week I got a bottle of 60 capsulas while in Cozumel, to complete my antibiotic treatment (I lost the previous amoxi I was taking). I am very familiar with the smell and taste of amoxicilina and penicillin. I open the capsules when I take it, it tastes bad, and has a unique taste & smell (also in urine). The current bottle I just purchased, red & white capsulas, is a white powder with NO taste nor smell. Furthermore, it appears to have no affect on my sinusitis, and NO odor in urine. This is the first Amoxi I have ever taken that is like this (no taste & no odor. So common sense tells me I HAVE BEEN ROBBED. If this is COUNTERFEIT Amoxi, we need to STOP ITS SALE. The bottle I have s... ...

packaging of drug

Has anyone considered that those who have to open those little packets might also have arthritis? They are the most difficult little packets to open. If one didn't have decent fingernails, you couldn't even do it. ## If you let your pharmacy know, they will change the packaging for you to make it easier for you to use it. ## No kidding! I have a hard time even with cereal boxes. Pill bottle tops, too. Even when you tell them you don't need child-proof caps. ## My 87 year old mother uses Spiriva and swears that her capsules are defective....empty. She pinches them and doesn't feel anything inside. After she has used them, she says they are cracked (not just poked) and that nothing (no powder residue) is left. We can't return them to the pharmacy to check because they ... ...
