can i take cleocin if am allergic to biaxin pencillin and sulfa drugs? ## Hello, T! How are you? The Cleocin is in a different class, it's a lincosamide antibiotic, so in theory it should be okay. However, there is no way of knowing if you will or will not be allergic to it, too. You should also double check with your doctor and pharmacist, before taking it, to be extra cautious. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Can I take methadone, hydromophrine and calmylin ace syrup together
1 Reply RSS
I take these for chronic back pain and I have a bad cough so doc gave me this cough syrup but it was new clinic n didn't ask what else I was on and I'm so sick it slipped my mind as well ## Well that would be adding another narcotic to the mix, since Codeine is one of the ingredients. As I'm sure you're aware, they can all cause depression of the central nervous system, so they more you take, the more risky it gets. Symptoms of dangerous CNS depression may include extreme drowsiness, shallow breathing, lowered heart rate, dizziness and somnolence. Learn more Codeine details here. How tolerant are you to opiates? It would likely be best to check with your doctor or pharmacist, before adding another, just for your own safety. ...

what is the maximum number of amox k clav 500 125 pills to take one time
1 Reply RSS
My family doctor prescribed 4 Amox/K 500-125 Tab to be taken at one time before a dental procedure because of my heart problems. Is this safe to take 4 pills at one time. ## Hi Lois, According to the drug monograph for that 500mg tab, the dosing indications are listed at 1 tablet every 8 hours for 7-10 days. However, on the stronger version of this medication, the maximum recommended dose is listed at 1 tablet of Amoxicillin (875mg) + clavulanic acid (125mg) every 12 hours for 7 - 10 days. Based on that, it sounds to me like you took a few too many at one time. If you start feeling any repercussions from having done that, you may want to look into getting some probiotics. The good bacteria is healing to your gut and also prevents things like yeast infections (which can be a side effect ... ...

my sister-in-law took both pills together and started stroke like symptoms. can they cause this if taken together? ## Hello, Christina! Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law's problem. How is she doing? Both of these medications are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, so by taking them both together, she essentially doubled up on the same medication….and as to the stroke symptoms, they can both cause blood thinning and a stroke is usually caused by a blood vessel bursting in the brain.

My Dr Has Had Me On 4 Mg Of Alprazolam For The Last 10 Years Is That Too Much And How Do You Get Off It
3 Replies RSS
My Dr. has had me on alprazalom 4 1mg. tablets for the last 10 years for panic attacks and anxiety is this really a high dosage and how hard is it going to be to get off of it. I had to have someone call 911 for it because when I called to get it refilled he was't in the office and the drugstore would not refill it and I went 7 days without it and it was really bad. ## If you've been taking it for that long, then a sudden withdrawal may be dangerous, there is a chance that it could cause you to suffer seizures. Thus, it's always best to stop Benzodiazepines such as this on a slow taper schedule. Learn more Alprazolam details here. And yes, that's a fairly high dosage, but not an extreme one. Have you talked to your doctor about how to get off it of it safely? Are there s... ...

I am 55 years old female with Laiden V; Iam taking coumadine 28mg/day and I would liek to know if I can take L-arginine Plus and also Vitamin B12 ## Hi Mirela, According to the MayoClinic, patients using anticoagulants, or other blood thinners, should consult a licensed practitioner before using L-arginine or B12. This is not to say that it can't be done, but you'll still want to double-check with your doctor on this one, as there are no drug interaction checkers that determine the safety of using Rx meds along with dietary supplements. I do know that both supplements have the potential to interact (based on their blood thinning properties), so in that sense I think it was wise of you to wait and ask first before taking such risks. It's really just a matter of the extent of ... ...

Hi, Does anyone know how many people take this medicine in USA? How about its effect? How mean generally how long it can extend people's life Thanks, Gang ## Hi, Gary! I'm sorry, but I couldn't find any data on the number of patients taking it. However, as far as the survival time extension, it was shown to be 5.5months for Kidney cancer (advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma) and 3 months for Liver cancer (heaptocellular carcinoma). These are of course the median survival rates, which means some people lived longer with more improvement and some shorter. Does anyone else know more? ...

how long before testopel pellets start working?
417 Replies RSS
Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ... ...

Our son is heavily addicted to suboxone. It started when he tried to function properly after he quit taking opiates. It is been going on for a long time. He buys pills illegally and lies to us where his money go. He ruined all relationship with his employers. A lot of money and biggest part of our savings went to cover his dept in order to keep him out of jail. We cannot live like this anymore and to kick him out on the street is not an option for us either. Because the way he is it will definitely lead him to death or jail. He is very bright and loving boy has no will to fight this addiction. He lied to physiatrist and he lied to us until yesterday. Yesterday he admitted everything and voluntarily asked us to lock him in a house and let him deal with his withdrawal. I do not believe an... ...

i took two morphine 15 abg. i have taken one before, but not two. will i be ok?
1 Reply RSS
Ive taken small doses of opiods before,and one 15mg abg, but not on a regular basis. I was just wondering how long tye effects will last, amd when it is safe to drink. And what are warning signs I should look out for? I think im going to be ok though. ## IThe drug is morphine sulfate extended-release, generic for MS Contin 15 mg tablets. It is odd you would be prescribed an extended-release medication if you are only taking it occasionally. MS Contin (and its generics) are used for people requiring continuous pain relief and is taken every 12 hrs. MS Contin Extended Release lasts 12 hrs so that xx mg does of morphine is being slowly released rather than the full dose working immediately (but lasting only 4-6 hrs). MS Contin is NOT intended to be taken as needed so it may be a large enou... ...

Why Are You Told Not To Take Hydrocodone Before Your Surgery For 5 Days
2 Replies RSS
my husband has to have surgery in 5 days he was told to stop taking hydrocodone immediately his pain isnt tolerable with only tylenol why cant he have the hydrocodone nowxl ## Hi lucy, According the webpage linked below, the reason why one has to discontinue Hydrocodone well in advance of surgery, is because the medication will prolong bleeding times. Although I do wonder why Tylenol is considered to be safe during this time, since it seems to have blood thinning effects as well. Can anyone else find details on this? ## The reason why docs do this is to lower your tolerance so that the pain meds will be more effective to reduce pain after surgery. Many long term users of pain meds build a tolerance and then need a stronger pain reliever foll... ...

Accidentally took a white estrogen pill when i was supposed to take my 4th day of blue, just started taking lo loestrin too. I took the white one on accident and realized it the next day, dont ask how ACCIDENT, so i took the blue one as usual lastnight. Having terrible cramps! What should i do? Should i stop taking it? Now im missing a white pill for at the end of the month... ## Okay, the white tablet is still an active tablet, so you would still be protected against pregnancy, it is only the last 2 brown tablets in the pack that aren't, so there really isn't a big problem is you took it earlier in the month and then take the blue for an extra day at the end of the month, before you take the other white one.

I been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis and ran out of my hydrocodone prescription, I also was prescribed a muscle relaxer carisoprodol for my back pains can I take ibuprofen 600 mg with my muscle relaxer until hydrocordone can be filled. ## Using the University of Maryland Medical Center's ( drug interaction tool, their webpage doesn't display any interactions between Carisoprodol and Ibuprofen. Based off this information alone I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be safe to use the two together; outside of their own individual side effects. However, I do think it's always a good idea to inform your doctor of any new medications first, just in case something were to happen *knock on wood*. Hope this helps! ...
