it is called PMS-Methylphenidate. AKA Ritalin. DO NOT use as an aspirin, nor give to someone who never had this before. It is somewhat of a strong dosage, 20mg ## Since it is not Aspirin, it would not be effective for pain, fever or headache. Methylphenidate is a stimulant used to treat conditions such as ADHD or Narcolepsy. Side effects may include: nausea, headache, anorexia and insomnia.

Red Tablet Pill
It is the sleeping pill most commonly used in hospitals. it comes in doses of 15 and 30 mg. What is its name? It is not Seconal. Ir is a low potency drug, it's more of a hypnotic than a barbiturate. ## I'm sorry, but unfortunately, the color doesn't really help identify it. And, as to what it may be, that can really depend on the area, the preferred drug of choice can vary from area to area and hospital to hospital. For instance, out here in Washington, the hospital in my area uses Ambien, which is available as a 5 and 10mg tablet. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## Likely, you are referring to the Schedule IV benzodiazepine "Restoril" or the generic pill/capsule version. The generic name is temazepam. Interestingly, Restoril (temazepam) is prescribed for insomnia/s... ...

Topamax memory loss
I'm on 100mg of Topamax 3 times a day. I've been on it for over 2 years now. I day all 3 doses at once. I take it as a mood stabalizer. It also helps my migraines and assists in weight loss but I've noticed sever memory loss as the years go on. My husband has had to repeat whole conversations to me. Ones we've had just a week prior. It's been more and more noticeable in the last 12 months. Does anyone else share this issue? ## No, it isn't a listed side effect for this medication, but it is difficult to know how it may affect anyone taking it on a long-term basis, since we are all different. Have you discussed the problem with your doctor? Do you take any other medications? ## I was on topamax for weight loss and had four seizures and prior to taking this had nev... ...

vicodan 10 mg
I was taking vicodan 5/325 and was up to 3 tabs with adequate pain relief and no side effects. My doc upped my dose to 10/325 I took 1.5tabs and am nauseous and dizzy. Is that normal? SShouldn't it be the same? ## Hello, Jan! How are you feeling? No, it is normal for a higher dose to cause more side effects and both nausea and dizziness are common, as well as drowsiness and constipation. This medication also carries the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Morphine 30mg 3 times a day
is the above dosage safe if taken for 2&1/2 years ## is taking 30 mg of morphine tabs 3 times a day for 2&1/2 years save? ## There is really no way to say whether or not the long term use of any medication is safe. It depends on the individual and how their body reacts to the drug. Some people experience problems and some don't. However, this is a narcotic and can be habit forming, after being used for such a long period of time. Have you discussed your concerns with your doctor? ...

on Zoloft,why am I still aggitated?
I have been on 50mg for about 2 years now, but suddenly am more aggitated than normal,could I need a larger dose or change ..? ## Hi Bj, From the looks of things it sounds like your body has become quite tolerant to Zoloft. Having been on it for about 2 years can build up a tolerance even slightly enough to make that much of a difference. If you would like more information on Zoloft, please take a look at the link below... Since you probably have become tolerant to this drug, I personally would not go for a larger dosage, because you will eventually become tolerant to an even larger amount. I cannot tell you what to take or how much to consume because I am not an MD, but it would certainly be a good idea to change the drug and/or cycle Zoloft on and off every few weeks or so to countera... ...

percocet/long term
I have been on percocet for the past 6 yrs now at 10 mil x 5 a day and was wondering does anyone find that they have a need for stronger doses over time? I was switched last yr and had previously been on 10 x 4 a day for about 3-4 yrs so i think maybe this may be about right for the length of time i have been on them..but what happens when they start to be ineffective> I take them for arthritis in neck spine and hands as well as fibromyalgia and scoliosis i also suffer from chronic cluster migraines I am a 46 yr old female. ## Percocet contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. And yes, your body eventually adjusts to anything you are taking for a long period of time and will require a higher dosage to get the same results or a medication change. Read more: Do you ... ...

teal capsule is it roxy?
my friend gave me a teal colored capsule with no imprints and said it was a Roxy ## Based on my research Roxicodone's dosage forms do not come in teal blue capsules or any capsule for that matter. However there is a conspiracy going around throughout various forums on Google, stating that its generic equivalent (oxycodone) comes in an unmarked blue capsule. This would only be the case if the pill was either foreign or made in a home lab and sold on the street; since the FDA requires that all prescription drugs have a unique imprint to identify them by. Personally, I wouldn't trust an unmarked pill. It could literally be anything. Do you know where or who your friend got them from? ## Ive heard that neurontin helps withdrawal symtoms coming off of opiates like oxycontin and roxyc... ...

When Is The Best Time To Take Coveram 10mg
When is the best time to take Coveram 10mg/10mg? ## The dosing instructions note that you should only take 1 tab of Coveram once daily, before meals (on an empty stomach). That said, the timing seems to be left up to the patient in whatever schedule works best for you. My suggestion would be to take it first thing in the morning. That way you don't necessarily have food in your stomach at the time. I hope this helps! ...

loratab 10 mg
what is the biggest dose of loratab available ## my son was hurt on the job with broken pelvis, other injuries include the tail bone, disc, he has to have surgery on disc now. He is in untolerable pain and is taking Loratab 10. How many can you take in a 24hr. period? HELP!! ## The maximum amount of Hydrocodone available is 10mgs, though the amount of Acetaminophen can vary. Due to the danger of overdose, since the Hydrocodone is a potent narcotic and the Acetaminophen is VERY toxic, he should only take it according to his doctor's or pharmacist's dosing instructions. If it is not handling his pain, then he really needs to talk to his doctor, there are other options available to try to get better pain control. Common side effects he may experience can include: nausea, drowsiness... ...
