Fentanyl Pain Patch Expire
1 Reply RSS
What is expiration date on Fentanyl patch with lot number 267722 ## There's actually a lot of conflicting information around the topic of expired medication. Despite what your packing may say, according to a Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. I don't know whether or not the drug you have happens to be one of these drugs from the study... (I have no... ...

question...about taking meds
1 Reply RSS
I am disabled with several ruptured disks and degenerative bone disease, not to mention arthritis! I am taking oxycodone, generic I think, called roxycodone. I need it for the pain but it makes me dizzy and nauseous so bad that I just dread taking it sometimes. Can anyone tell me if there's any foods that you can eat when you take it that will help? ## Have you been taking it with a meal or on any empty stomach? Sometimes, this can make a huge difference, as food can help keep it from irritating the stomach. Some items that may help could be bread, crackers, yogurt, milk or starchy foods, like rice. For the dizziness, try laying down for am hour or so, after you first take it and always make sure that when you sit up or stand up, to do it slowly. The nausea can also occur if you hav... ...

1 Reply RSS
My wife was prescribed potassium years ago. Does not remember mg or meq.We assume it was 10or 20 meq.She is now taking Oct potassium 99mg.How many 99mg would she take to get 10meq? She is diabetic and keeps it under control. ## Hello, Nick! How are you? There is no actual conversion for this, these 99mg over the counter potassium supplements aren't even close to the amount available in the prescription tablets. Additionally, it is not safe to take that much, unless her doctors has said she is dangerously low in it and needs to supplement it. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

gentilax during pregnancy
2 Replies RSS
I take gentilax for constipation, but I just learned I am pregnant. I have had no bowel movement in two days though, usually I would just take a pill but are there any risks involved for the growing fetus? ## Angela, since you are pregnant, it isn't wise to take anything, before checking with your doctor. It is the best thing to do for your safety and the safety of your baby. It is probably okay for you to use fiber supplements, as you usually need a higher amount of it while pregnant, but only your doctor can say for sure. Do you have any OB Gyn already? ## Thank you so much for the response. Yes, I do have an OBGYN already. I have an appointment on the 15th (sono to make sure baby is in uterus) then seeing my doctor after sono. However, I am taking Meta-mucil as told by my nurse a... ...

Periods Off and Weight Gain
3 Replies RSS
I've been on Lo Loestrin Fe for almost 2 years. For the first year or so, I had some light periods, some were just skipped, but 4 months ago I started two weeks early, and bled for almost 3 weeks. Since then, I haven't had a period, even though I haven't missed a single pill. And this month, I've had really awful cramping for several days. I took a test and it was negative, so I'm not pregnant. Plus I've suddenly gained 15 pounds, even though I work out 3x/week and watch what I eat. I don't know if the pill is making me gain weight and have these symptoms or what. Should I be concerned? ## Hi Jaci, From what I could gather, the symptoms you're describing are all listed as common side effects for most oral contraceptives. So in my honest opinion, I don... ...

Zanidip And Swollen Ankles
2 Replies RSS
Took Zanidip for only 11 days and stopped (under dr advice) due to severe swelling in my feet, ankles and lower legs. So much so that my shoes did not fit and it feels like the whole area is bruised. Has anyone else experienced this? I have stopped meds for 4 days and the swelling has not gone down - I am getting worried that this may be permanent. Any advice or ideas? ## Zanidip contains the active ingredient Lercanidipine, which is a calcium channel blocker, used to help lower blood pressure and treat certain cardiac conditions. They are known to cause edema in some people and, when it does, the medication must be discontinued and they usually have to switch to something else.

I'm 23 year old female weighing 36 kgs , height is 4" I want to gain weight I've had no health problems ## Hi amanita, If you need assistance gaining weight in a healthy way, I think (from my own experience) that your best bet would probably be to focus on eating enough nutrient dense calories to from protein, carb, and fat sources together to make more wholesome meals. But if you have a hard time consuming more calories in one sitting, you can also choose to eat smaller portions more frequently throughout the day and/or rely on high calorie shakes in between meals. I've tried various approaches myself and those are just a couple examples that worked for me in the past. However, I'd still encourage you to speak with a dietician for that one-on-one personal assistance... ...

I read a report from 2011 that Purdue pharma stopped making Oxycontin..but that I'm to sure if anything has changed since then. Have you checked with any local pharmacies? Since they are the ones who provide medication, they would very likely know what is/isn't in stock at this time...
