magnesium salicylate and mobic
I just took a Diurex and a mobic within minutes of each other...is this a problem? ## Diurex actually contains Pamabrom, which is claimed to be a diuretic to help with bloating. Mobic contains the active ingredient Meloxicam and is a prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Unfortunately, since Diurex is actually an over the counter supplement and not a prescription medication, its interactions with prescription medications has not been studied, nor has its side effects. You could try asking your doctor or pharmacist if they have any information. Did you have any other questions? ...

pill oval blue with alva on one side and 1 on the other side
oval aqua blue shape with ALVA on one side and the number 1 on the other side ## this is Diurex, a bloat relief pill, often used for weight loss. It is the caffeine free version and contains ONLY Pamabrom 50mg. ## This identification is correct. Pamabrom is a diuretic that's available in several over the counter products to treat the bloating that's often associated with PMS. Anyone that has any medical conditions and/or takes any medications regularly should check before taking this to make sure it is safe for them, since it may interact with some medications or be contraindicated with some medical conditions. Additionally, since it is a diuretic that removes fluid from the body, there is the risk of dehydration. Is there anything I can help with? There are more Pamabrom detai... ...

Clear Capsule with clear blue band
Has blue clear band around middle and has markings ALVA and inside are blue and white and yellow beads ## This sounds like it may be Alva's product called Diurex, which is an over the counter product used to remove excess fluid from the body. Diuretic details here. They use that marking on all of their products though, so I am not certain that's what it is. They actually have two different version of their Diurex, one that uses caffeine and one that doesn't, though I can't find specific details on what it does use. Where was it found? ...
