My mom died two weeks after receiving two doses of mylotarg in May of 2010. Since her death certificate says her death was due to AML no attorney or doctor wants to discuss if the mylotarg may have caused her death. Does anyone know of anyone our family can talk to about this drug. ## I'm sorry, I wish I could help you, but I really don't know of anyone that you could talk to, or how you'd get anyone to change their minds as to the cause of death, which would have to be the first step. I am also very sorry for your loss. Mylotarg, which contains Gemtusumab Ozogamicin, was removed from the market by the FDA last year, because they found that it increased patient death and did not add any benefits over other therapies that were already on the market. Have you tried speaking to... ...

witch is the better tablet Prexum or Pharmapress ## witch is the better tablet Prexum or Pharmapress ## Although both of these medications are used to treat Hypertension, no one can really honestly tell you how either of these drug are going to effect you, as they are not you. Not even "you" know how it's going to effect you until you take it, so how could someone else? I know that response is bit naive, but medications can affect everyone differently, whereas some people get great results, but there are others that it inevitably just doesn't work for no matter how many they take. So telling someone that one is better than the other is simply based on opinions and not facts. Unfortunately when it comes to prescription drugs, the only to find out the facts is to try it fo... ...

SMZ TMP double str 800 160 reactions
2 Replies RSS
After having 2 sinus infections within a month, I was pretty sure I had yet another one. I took Cipro for the first two and they seemed to go away. I was sure that I had one again, so I returned to the doctor. He prescribed that SMZ-TMP double str. 800-160. I read the side effects that came with my prescription and thought, wow there are ALOT of side affects to this medication! I haven't really had a bad reaction to a drug before except when the doctor was trying to get my thyroid dose correct. At that time, I thought I was going crazy! I had anxiety really bad. I called that doctor's office many times and they finally called me back. When I told them all of my symptoms they acted like it was no big deal, just switch to this dosage. They were unsympathetic and really didn't ... ...

Restless leg syndrome plus it's an anti seizure medication. What's the big deal here?JT ## I am not sure where you read that information on Clonazepam, but it's not actually accurate. It is a Benzodiazepine, which is the same class of medications as Xanax and Ativan, the name brand for Clonazepam would be Klonopin.

weaning off of fentanyl patch

Hi, I started using a 12 mcg fentanyl patch about a month and a half ago for chronic pain. I never abused them and I always changed them every 72 hours like I was prescribed to. Well I decided that it was time to get off the patch and tried one day to take it off and a few hours later I started to experience "the flu times ten" I was told by my doctor that my body had formed a dependency to the drug and if I was ready to get off then he wants to wean me off. Well he prescribed me to dilaudid 4mg and he said as soon as I take the patch off to take half off my first dilaudid. The first day I take a half every 6 hours.. the next 2 days I take a half every 8 hours.. then the next 2 days after that its a half every 12 hours.. then the next 2 days after that its a half daily.

in jersey we have people trying to take their pills out of the chemist to sell. the drug service are now crushing tablets before they go under the persons tongue. Do they still wotk as effectively as some seeps into saliva which gets swallowed? would appreciate advice. thanx ## Yes, they still receive the full dosage of the Buprenorphine, it works the same as letting it dissolve or swallowing it. This is only dangerous or prohibitive if it is a time release medication or something that you can't do this with, because the added ingredient neutralizes the narcotic, such as with Suboxone. Is there anything else I can help you with? ...

Half Black And half White With Red Stripe
5 Replies RSS
capsule is half solid black and the other half is white with a red stripe around the middle of the white, but the stripe does not quite go all the way around ## Hello, Can you find any sort of imprint on this capsule? The reason why I'm asking is because 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 by manufacturer, substance and dosage. If no imprint can be found, identifying your pill could be just as hard as finding a needle in a haystack, so to speak. Has anyone else come across a capsule like the one "curious" described? If so, please post any additional information you have. Thanks! ## No, it does not have any other mark... ...

I found a round, aqua/white half of pill. Has a stylized V on one side; 19 or a 61 And a cross hatch across the back.
1 Reply RSS
This is only half the pill, I am cleaning out the apartment who is now in rehab and I have to determine if these are safe to lave with him or narcotics that should be jettisoned. Meds are expensive so I don't want to go overboard with throwing out legitimately safe drugs. Amy idea what this is based only on a half a pill's description? ## Without knowing the full imprint, I can't identify this with any certainty. And really, it's just half a tablet, it's not going to be a big financial loss to just dispose of it to be on the safe side. That V logo definitely marks it as being a prescription medication, rather than over the counter, which is about all I can tell you about it. Are there any other questions or concerns? Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ...

I just started on bystolic and am unsure how often to take it. After 14 hours, my bp is very good, and a bit low. I don't know whether to take another with my bp at this rate(117/74). Would it drop too low? Should I take it anyway to remain on a schedule? So confused ## 5mg bystolic ## Have you consulted your doctor? You should definitely consult with your doctor, however, just as a general rule, blood pressure that is 90/60 or higher, is not considered dangerously low, unless it is causing you symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. 117/74 is actually considered to be at a normal level. How often has your doctor told you take it? Was it prescribed once daily, or twice daily? As I've already stated, low blood pressure numbers, within reason, are not dangerous, unless... ...
