Grind Pills
1 Reply RSS
is it ok to grind pills that have to be given to pets so that they can be mixed with their food? ## Yes, you can do that as long as they aren't time released pills and as long as your veterinarian or the pill labeling hasn't warned you not to do so. There are some pills that would carry such a warning, because they may do damage to the stomach or esophagus if they are crushed and the protective outer coating removed. Learn more prescription drug details here. Check the labeling and if you see something such as ER, XR, SR or something similar then it is time released and not safe to crush or grind up. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Absessed crown
4 Replies RSS
I have a crown which has a root canal done in it. I grind my teeth really bad and was told that I fractured the root canal. I keep getting an absess pocket which I can express myself. I do not have any real pain probably because I can release the pressure. I have taken left over antibiotics (yes, I know I shouldnt!)(IC Sulfamethoxazole and Pen VK at different times). I do not have health or dental insurance and am at a loss of what to do. ## The cheapest solution for you, since you don't have insurance, would most likely be to just have the tooth pulled. And the best suggestion I can make for that is to check around you area and see if there are any low income dental clinics, or if there are any dental schools. They usually have sliding fee scales, so you can have it extracted much ... ...

What's alternative medication for tussigon. My dog is 15.5,15lb shihtzu with partially collapsed trachea, with cough/gagging episodes mostly upon waking up - drink water, excitement. He has been on tussigon 1/2 pill 1-2x p/d. Very hard to give pill. Tried everything from pill pockets, ALL kinds food, empty capsules, compounding, pill ejector, etc, grinding and add chicken flavor & 10 drops water and baby syringe into pocket in mouth to hide it.

He's also on BP meds, vetmedin for heart 2x p/d, 1/ 4 water pill & eye meds. denamarin every other day (big problem getting that pill down too). These I can ha... ...

Lexapro and the bad side effects
1 Reply RSS
I just recently decided to try Lexapro 10mg nine days ago. My OBGYN recommended this for me to try if I wanted to because for 2 weeks out of every month before my period my hormones are completely out of it. I'm an emotional roller coaster. So, I thought what could it hurt to try. My experience has been awful with Lexapro. The very first day of taking it, I could not sleep, I felt very sick to my stomach. Second day.....still sick to my stomach, couldn't sleep and ringing in my ears. By the 4th day on this med all the side effects above including feeling like I have to bite down hard, grinding of the teeth, and cannot climax when me and my husband are having intercourse. Me and my husband are extremely intimately active with each other (5x a week) It's awful in my opinion. A... ...

How to get the best out of your exalgo
6 Replies RSS
I have been on every narc out there from the lowest to 100 mg morphine four times a day, in combination with all your OxyContin and oxycodone, norco, Percocet , and the 2mg Xanax four times a day with it. I got put on exalgo 32 twice a day with norco, lyrica, and some other drugs and it was not taking care of the pain good enough. To make this short, I would put my exalgo under my tounge to soften it up and split the pill with a pill splitter, you'll see grey and white. The white part is the med, but then I would chew it up or grind it in a pill grinder and swallow it. Works 100 times better and faster. ## Thanks for the advice. I know it's not recommended to take it that way, but you were right. I got relief for the first time. ## Since I started taking Exalgo (and yes, like th... ...

Methylene Blue Urolene TauRx Rember
Post a Reply
Urolene Blue pills may no longer be made. If you can get the I.V. form of methylene Blue, it should distill out using a simple water purifying distiller (along with a touch of salt crystals in the MB, perhaps). Dump the pale blue water that comes out, and scrape the residue inside the distiller --- that's the MB. In this solid form it is weird looking stuff. Kind of a golden green shiny material ... has a Formica quality to it. If powder is required, grind it up with a mortar and pestle. If you do all this in a room (like a kitchen) that you've sprayed with the correct disinfectant (say alcohol and Lysol) and first sterilize all the items that you use, then it should still be pharmaceutical-ish grade. No worse, I suspect, than baking cookies. This is expensive, since the yield f... ...

cymgen side effects not worth it
2 Replies RSS
I was on cymgen 120 mg for 6 months. Treatment for fibromaylgia. It made me mentally unstable. I had night mares twitching grinding teeth and felt no emotion. I was so desperate to be switched off. I considered suicide. I was admitted to hospital where they just added to my meds. This led to jerking and shaking. I decided to cut the meds down myself. And started to feel better. I went down to 60 mg of cymgen but the jerking and confusion didn't stop. This week I decided to stop it. Its been awful. But today for the first time im not twitching. And the jerking and fast heart rate has stopped. I still don't feel happiness But I'm on my way there. Cymgen was supposed to help with my physical pain but instead it drove me to madness. I was on cipralex for 8 years and I never felt... ...

Wife diagnosed with Parkinsons disease on Jan 16, 2006. She takes Sinmet, Namenda, Citalopram HBR (your manufacture), Exelon, Vitamin D, Vitamin B, and Ibuprophen. About 20+ pills a day. She has a terrible time taking your pills (1 and 1/2 20 mg tablets at breakfast). For some reason the Citalopram sticks to her tongue and she simply doesn't seem to be able to get them down. The other pills are not very difficult. I've tried apple sauce, yogurt, honey, juice, water, grinding them up into a powder (pills do not pulverize and many granules remain in the glass). She eats a normal amount of food; slowly but normal quantity. How can I help her swallow the Citalopram pills from you?

stretch out a hose clamp and grind the pill along the rough edge or there are other creative ways to get it into powder form but it has to be pretty fine but like i said . just be creative. theres always some way to get them into powder. then put it onto a pyrex or glass plate/baking dish spread the powder out thinly then put it on a pizazz im sure everyones heard of a pizazz pizza cooker. and cook it for 6 to 7 mins. or until it starts turning light brown then put it in the freezer for about 10 mins. scrape it up with a razor blade and enjoy. it tastes great and kind of stings the first few times but you get huge tasty drips i realy should try makin money with my method cuz it works try it. ## IT's very dangerous to use any medication in a manner for which it was not intended.

ACTAVIS ADDERALL ER 30MG
Post a Reply
My local pharmacy filled my prescription for Adderall ER 30mg. with the ACTAVIS EL instead of the TEVA USA brand, and I noticed that things were drastically different. First, I noticed mild radiating warmth in the left side of my chest… but, we all know that’s fairly common. Second, I had to constantly remind myself to stop grinding my dam teeth, “I’m a musician and always think of music as if I were playing drum parts with my teeth… f***ing annoying”. Third, was the need to crack every joint in my body such as ankles, toes, wrists, fingers, neck… you get my drift. Forth, I got far “DIZZY-UUUURR…….RR” than with other Adderall ER generics such as Teva USA or Shire. Fifth, I finally checked the label and noticed that it was... ...

Tooth/gum pain
2 Replies RSS
I just started taking sertaline (zoloft) 8 days ago and i have been experiencing tooth/gum pain i know i need fillings but this just seems different anyone else go through this? ## Do you grind your teeth while sleeping? that can cause tooth and gum pain. maybe it got worse since getting on the drug. other than that, I haven't heard of this as a side effect of zoloft. could be periodontal disease. see a dentist. ## I believe that Martin is on the right track and thank him for his post. SSRIs, such as Sertraline, have been known to cause bruxism, as well as gum disease and bleeding gums. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. I experienced it myself, when I used to take it.

Zoloft Day 2 - help!?
2 Replies RSS
I am on 50mg of Zoloft to help treat night eating disorder. I am very sensitive to meds - so expected some effects - but: - teeth grinding - elevates heart rate - shortness of breath I have started on Zoloft for the same issue before but stopped after a week or 2 because of the above. QUESTION: is anyone's experience similar and do those things "smooth out" as body adjusts (and about how long does that take?) Hoping to power through for a few weeks more this time to see of there's light at the end of the tunnel. ## Hello, Alex! How are you? Side effects are usually transient, so they'll taper off in severity and eventually go away entirely, once your body gets used to the medication. However, that could take 4 to 6 weeks. Unless they are so severe that you can't ... ...

I'm only on day two of zoloft. initial side effects are immense. I have been monitoring severe anxiety attacks with xanax for years. It is really the only way I function in society. I found out a week ago I'm pregnant and had to stop immediately. They prescribed zoloft. I am a bit familiar with antidepressant side effects and know that two days is too soon to give up. But the past two days have been so intense and scarey. My panics are through the roof. Trouble typing the shakes are so immense. Very hard to eat or sleep. And I'm getting lock jaw from grinding my teeth. And of course I'm worried about my pregnancy. I will certainly speak with my Dr about this but want to get through 72 hours or a week first. Anyone willing to talk any advice appreciated. Pregnant or not. ... ...

Fosamax jaw symptoms years after stopping the drug.
1 Reply RSS
I was put on Fosamax & Evista when it first became available for Osteopenia (very early surgical menopause). When it became notorious for side effects, my dr said to get off it immediately. Now, years later, have developed jaw pain and assoc symptoms on one side....to be investigated. Can it affect a person years later?? ## At this point I'm really not sure that it's possible to say whether it was caused by the medication or just something that's developed. What type of jaw pain are you having? Have you had any dental problems? Do you grind your teeth, at all? I think the answer is really going to depend on what's causing the issue and it's hard to guess, when you're still not sure. ...
