Weight Gain
I have stopped taking Lipitor because of a few side effect problems (such as muscle pain). I have also been dieting to lose weight for the past year. Since I stopped the Lipitor my rate of weight loss has increased, from about 1 pound per week to 2-3 pounds per week. I am dieting by limiting calories and consuming low fat/high protein foods. Has anyone heard of this regading Lipitor? ## I took lipitor for 10 days and had severe muscle cramps..I stop taking it and am feeling alot better..The doc says very few ppl have severe side affects to this drug... ## It also caused my weight loss to slow down when on this drug..ty ## I stopped taking because of severe pain but started again after a few days in the hospital . No problems this time except I couldn't figure out why I couldn't ... ...

dark blue capsule with white powder inside, no marking
I found a blister pack of 4, all dark blue capsules, with white powder inside. The only marking is on the blister packet of a LOT Number. No markings at all on the capsules. They were in my boyfriends coat jacket, he is 38. He said they were for back problem, but I know they cant be as they are unmarked and I pick up his prescriptions for his back problems. Any help would be appreciated. ## Without any markings, it is going to be impossible for us to positively identify these. They meet the description of many over the counter items, as well as some foreign and illicit drugs. I am sorry, I really wish we could be of more help. ## Thank you for responding. Really I knew there couldn't be a magic answer, so I will have to try to accept what he said they were. It helped though that the... ...

Generic Prescription For Percoset 10 325 Dosage
The prescription was for percoset 10/325 dosage. I got a generic prescription back - it says endocet 10/325. The pills are round, white with a line on one side and the number 512 on the other side. I got a prescription a while back for 5/325 and I think they looked the same and I'm concerned the pharmacy gave me the wrong dosage. Can you tell me if I got the right dosage? ## You are correct, the tablets with the 512 marking contain 325mgs of Acetaminophen and only 5mgs of the Oxycodone, so if you were supposed to receive 10/325 then they gave you the wrong dosage. Have you contacted the pharmacy about it? ...

Give Nembutal choosers support, not a lecture on why they shouldn't use it.
I am a very open person. If you want to be gay, hate certain people, not like immigrants, do like them I will simply say...tell me WHY you feel that way before I tell someone something I know nothing about. I'm really tired, since buying the Peaceful Pill Book seeing how many people are saying to others "Please dont die. Have you walked in that mans shoes? No. Do you even know if he has 2 legs or is paralyzed? No. So let me ask you, if a man fell out of a plane without a parachute, survived it but was a quadrapalegic for life and was in awful pain every day...would you really convince hoim to endure more pain? And if so..ask yourself where those "tapes" are coming from. Jesus is not here to Judge you, but yuour pain is. No one owes it to anyone, Jesus included to suffer ... ...

HOW CAN I GET THIS MEDICATION AT A LOWER RATE. I AM NOW IN THE DONUT HOLE AND IT WILL COST ME $155.00.

hydrocodone expiration
I found hydrocodone 7.5 and it from 1997 is it dangerous to take because of the tylonel or ibuprofen in it?? ## Hi Jb, While there may be a lot of conflicting information around the topic of expired medication, a Harvard Medical School family health article states that, 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 missed one birth control pill, was late for the next, and had period 2 days later
I have been taking Sprintec for about 5 years and I have never had this happen until now. On the second Monday of my pack, I completely forgot to take my pill, I discovered this on that Tuesday when I already found out that I was late for Tuesday too. So I took both pills for Monday and Tuesday, both were late. On an unwise decision, I had intercourse on Wednesday afternoon, and on Thursday morning I saw blood on my underwear. I immediately panicked thinking it was "spotting" that occurs when one is pregnant. I tried calling my OB's office asking about what I should do and if I should take a pregnancy test and the nurse said that it was too soon to be able to tell if I were. So I continued to take my pills normally in the mean time. A week of waiting on "spotting" ou... ...

Methotrexate and a chest cold
Hello, I take .6 ml methotrexate weekly plus plaquenil and sulfasalazine. I've been completely knocked out with a head/chest cold for the past three days. Now my fever is down; can I go back to work tomorrow or will I just did myself in deeper? Any advice would be appreciated. ## FROM PAST EXPERIENCE, IT USUALLY RECOMMENDED NOT TO RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITY UNTIL A FEVER IS GONE FOR 24 HOURS. ## @Bratbaby, I agree with the previous comment, in that you should probably wait it out until you've fully recovered from the fever and/or whatever cold symptoms you might still have. At this point your immune system has to take time to build itself back up again through getting plenty of rest, proper nutrition, and not stressing out about anything. Methotrexate on the other hand, is known for... ...

What I do take would keep most people from sedated but I still have some pain and can't seem to do much with or without my meds. any suggestions? 0 ## Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. If I could suggest anything that might be of help, it would be to include natural treatment options that can safely be used alongside your medication(s) as a sort of adjunctive therapy. Depending on what type of pain your dealing with, I do know that some medical marijuana clinics offer a CBD/THC 50/50 concentrate that your spray a few times in your mouth and it helps relieve a very noticeable amount of pain i... ...

opana er 40 brand name
Can someone tell me a dr that perscribes these I was getting them in Texas but now in raleigh can't find dr to prescribe {edited for privacy} ## Hi, Sam! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having. However, I wanted to ask how you're checking to see if a doctor will prescribe it? What many people don't realize is that if you're calling around to various doctors and just asking if they'll prescribe a certain medication, you will usually just be told no, because most doctors and their staff are taught to view that as drug seeking behavior. Thus, what you need to do is find a new doctor first, then make sure that they receive a full copy of your most recent medical records. When they can see what medication has and hasn't worked for you in the past,... ...

Perry Active Pills
i have takeing perry active in the pass and i have to gain 25p in the next mouth can i get the pills ## The correct medication name is Periactin, it contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat allergic reactions. It is not approved, nor recommended to be used just for the purpose of gaining weight. In addition, I am not sure it can be obtained and it does require a doctor's prescription. Have you tried consulting a doctor about healthy and safe ways to gain weight? ## hi im 27 yr old female,i just wanted to be gainweight cause my weight is only 45kg.i read some of medicine on the site 1 . perry active is increase of appetite and cym gen which is beter this two kinds of pills.. i want toe be gain as soon as posible.gave... ...

Pink Oval Pill About 1 2 Long With No Imprint
it is a pink oval pill with possible red specks about 1/2 inch in length and NO imprint at all I found it with a few hydrocodones, a few klonepins, and a vew ativans ## Hi Curious, Based on my research, your pill could possibly be Hydrocodone. However, there's no way to really identify a pill without an imprint because All Rx and OTC drugs in the US are required by the FDA to have one. Is it possible that the imprint on that specific pill could've been smudged off at some point? ## photo of watson brand 10/325 hydrocodone ## Hot pink, with red specks blank one side other side has L006 ...

My mother had these Domperidone prescribed to her by her gastroenterologist doctor. She has previously taken Reglan which caused her many problems with Parkinson-like symptoms about ten years ago. I was wondering if there is a good chance of her developing some of those symptoms again. Some of those symptoms from Reglan are finally starting to disappear. She is 79 years old and she does take Valium 2 mg. 3 x a day. If anyone knows anything, I would very much appreciate any information on this subject. Thank you very, very much. ## Hi, I saw your post about your mother's medication causing Parkinson like symptoms. My boyfriend's mother is going through the same thing. She is 81, and has severe shakiness of all her limbs. We believe this is the side effect of a medication she was ... ...

Substitute for 100 mg Rimadyl
We do not live in the US, Rimadyl is extremely expensive here. At present I administer 25 mg twice a day to our two arthritic geriatic dogs [30 and 40 lbs]. Is there an across-the-counter drugstore substitute that would work as well? If so, what dosage & frequency? Thank you. ## I'm sorry, I am not familiar with veterinary medications. Have you tried asking your vet for a cheaper alternative or other treatment options? ## Rimadyl contains the active ingredient Carprofen - Depending on where in the world you are located, a generic or substituted brand name may be available. So I would suggest trying to find Carprofen or another medication which contains it. You can also read more about this drug (including alternative brands in other countries) on the page for ... ## Can a baby a... ...

I would like to know if there is anywhere I can purchase it today. ## Hi Kelly - did you ever find Turpin Hydrate ? My Mom use to give this to us back in the 70's & early 80's for cough/cold.

I have a friend whom was in an accident. She broke vertebrate's but is having no luck finding a good Dr. Please if anyone can recommend a Dr. in the Tampa, Orlando, Fl area. She already has been mis-diagnosed and they had her wearing a neck brace that was not her size so no healing in her neck. She does not have a primary Dr. Please if you can help it would be a blessing. ## Hi, Paul! Sorry about what your friend is going through. However, getting herself a GP is really going to be her necessary first step here, in order to get quality care. Things are so crazy on the east coast now, especially in Florida, that in order to get most other doctors to help her, she's going to need to be referred by a primary.

Aleternative to Flagyl?
I took flagyl for 4 days after a bad reaction (stomach pain, mucus in bowel movements) to Ceftin. I was supposed to take the flagyl for 7 days but couldn't tolerate the nausea, etc. It has been a week since I stopped the Flagyl and my symptoms from the Ceftin are returning. Is there anything over the counter I can take to remedy this? I don't want to take the flagyl again if I can help it. ## Since Flagyl is a nitroimidazole antibiotic medication used particularly for anaerobic bacteria and protozoa; I would think for the symptoms you described, that supplementing with probiotics, digestive enzymes, and oil of oregano would be a good alternative approach. Wild oregano is rich in a long list of minerals that includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, boron, and m... ...
