what does a metformin pill look like. what is the lettering on the side of the pill ## I have been taking 500MG Metformin 2X a day. My old pills had ANDRX 674 on one side and 500 on the other. My latest bottle has Z one one side and 70 on the other. Are the new ones still 500MG? Thank you. ## I HAVE THE SAME QUESTION AS BILL, ANYONE OUT THERE WITH THE ANSWER? ODD LOOKING PILL. ## This is to answer Clifton,yes those are the same type of medication.Different companies manafacture Metformin.Generic medications(such as your metformin) must meet the same requirements as it's branded counterpars Rebeca,like I said to Clifton many companies make Metformin and so there will be many imprints for each indavidual company. ## My pharmacy changed their source for Metformin 1000mg from a pill # G... ...

pain pumps
2 Replies RSS
what does anyone know of pain pumps and what drs in new jersey use them ## There is no listing of doctors that use them. They are really only used in cases of severe pain, where someone either can't take oral medications, or they have exhausted other pain control options. Learn more pain amanagement details here. So, it's really not something that you can just walk into a doctor and ask for, they are last resort types of treatments. What do you currently take for pain? ## Hey Nikki, I just came across your question, but saw you posted over a year ago. I truly hope you've been successful in finding a doctor & that this message finds you well & pain-free. In any event & to answer your question, I know of only 1 doctor in NJ that does pain pumps--Dr. Datta in Hacken... ...

Can I still take MORPHINE SULFATE IR 15 MG TAB after 8 hours of morphine cr 15 mg tablet and whats he difernce between morphine cr and ir? ## Hi Keith, To answer your question, the 'CR' stands for "Controlled Release" - which offers pain patients a longer duration of its effects. The 'IR' stands for "Immediate Release" - which is absorbed into your system all at once for a more concentrated delivery. If you were legally prescribed both forms of Morphine and you're not just taking it recreationally (like other's I've noticed), I would recommend contacting your doctor about proper dosing protocols for switching between the two dosage forms. With such a potent medication, I personally think it would be vital to have the dosing regimen adjusted fo... ...

How Early Can You Take The Subprep Day Before
1 Reply RSS
I would like to start the first prep early so I can get to sleep early the night before my colonoscopy. How early can the first dose be taken? ## Hello, Are you referring to the Suprep Bowel Kit? If so, I read that Suprep Bowel Prep Kit should be used as a split-dose regimen, that basically means that you take two 6-ounce bottles of Suprep. The first 6-ounce bottle should be taken the evening prior to your colonoscopy and the second 6-ounce bottle is taken the morning of your colonoscopy. Be sure to drink additional water like the instructions for use recommend. Always follow your doctor’s instructions on when to begin using the Suprep Bowel Prep Kit.

Advil Patch

Are there less gi complications from using the patch than taking the pills? ## In one way or another the drug itself is going to have to metabolize, but I do believe a patch would present less GI discomfort for the sole reason that there are less binders and fillers than there would be in a tablet. It is my understanding that these so-called inactive ingredients are the root cause of many side effects. Not only that, but certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. I think that's why so many people react differently to the same medication. The medication is the same, but the binders and fillers are different in each brand. I hope this helps to answer your question! ... ...

Each Metanx® tablet contains: L-methylfolate Calcium (as Metafolin®) 3mg Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate 35mg Methylcobalamin 2mg I need similar drug in India its name and name of manufacture ## I'm sorry, but since we are based in the U.S., I don't have any information on what all is available in India. Have you tried asking a doctor or pharmacist/chemist about finding an equivalent? These are just nutritional supplements, so there should be products on the market that can be used that contain the same vitamins. ## I partner with metanx to help answer question.

Metoprolo Er Tab Suc 100mg Metoprolol Tartrate Abs
2 Replies RSS
are these the same drug? I have both and want to be sure they are the same. ## Metoprolol Succinate is an extended-release medication and Metoprolol Tartrate is an immediate-release medication. Because Metoprolol Tartrate is an immediate release tab, it would most likely require the patient to take additional pills throughout the day in comparison to the extended release version. Additionally, generics may also have different levels of potency (as they are allowed to contain up to 20% more or less of the actual active ingredient). Furthermore, each tablet has its own composition of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) that can also significantly effect the absorption rate of the drug itself, making it more or less effective overall. I hope this info helps to answer your question! ## T... ...

I take 145mg of methadone daily .my question is this.i just took 60mg of morphine will i feel it i do no other drugs. this is the first time ive used anything but methadone in 2 years ## Unfortunately, in any medical situation, a patient has to be their own best advocate. Doctors often prescribe medications according to their experience with how well something has worked for other patients. There really isn't a direct answer to your question, as no one can tell you how you would react to Morphine. Since medications can affect everyone differently, some people get great results from taking it, but there are others that it doesn't work for. I do know based on research that Methadone is considered to be 3-4 times stronger than oral Morphine (oxymorphone). And given the high dose of... ...

Doesn't it drive you absolutely bat-s*** crazy when people keep asking you about l484 when all they have to do is read one or two of your posts and they'd have their answer? Anyway, I just wanted to subscribe so I can ask questions in the future if need be. Have a great day! May the force be with you... Jeej ## Hello, Jeej! How are you? Unfortunately, this is not correct. The tablet with the L484 marking is not a Vicodin tablet. It contains nothing more than 500mgs of Acetaminophen and is available over the counter. It is a generic or store brand of extra strength Tylenol. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

The issues with medications usually occur if you take them while trying to get pregnant, or while you are pregnant. However, have you consulted a doctor about the pain? It may be due to a hormonal imbalance, or a nutritional deficiency that could be easily remedied. ...

IS THERE A RITALIN WITH A900 ON IT YELLOW OR PEACH TONED ## According to the U.S. drug databases, the answer to this question would be no. While there are yellow Ritalin pills, their marking is completely different than this. (There are no peach colored Ritalin pills in the drug databases either). Furthermore, the imprint "A900" is not listed as being anything in the drug databases. Odds are that the pill you are describing is manufactured outside of the U.S. or possibly that the imprint was misread. I don't think this is an OTC medication either as I can't locate any related possibilities on google. 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 l... ...
