Smz Tmp Ds 800 160 RASH
I was prescribed this along with a steroid for a infected beesting. I was taking both meds for 4 days then only this for the past 3 days.I stopped taking it yesterday because my whole body is covered in a blotchy red rash that is extreemly itchy and feels like my skin is on fire. Today is the second day of not taking it, but the rash is still everywhere. Feet to neck I'm covered in a crazy rash. I've never had a reaction like this before, is there anything I can do? I've been drinking lots of water hoping to flush my system. ## Unfortunately, even if you only took it for a few days, the rash may last a week or so. I had it happen to me a few months ago. You did the right thing by stopping it, since if you continue taking it after getting the rash, it could turn into a more s... ...

When will I get my period?
So I'm going on a trip in 8 days (May 31st) and I really don't want to be on my period during it. I'm suppose to get my period in 5 days. I just got birth control pills for the first time today. If I start taking the pills now even though I don't have my period yet, will that postpone my period until after my trip (I come home on June 6th)? Please help!! ## Hi Jenna, I'm not sure if it varies according to brand, so you may want to confirm this with your doctor/gynecologist first, but yes, it is possible and common for many women to skip or delay periods by only taking certain color tablets. Perhaps the following discussion threads may be of more assistance on this topic: Discuss/Sprintec-Skipping-Period-222740.htm Discuss/delaying-my-period-229970.htm Discuss/skippin... ...

562 And Blank On Other Side
I caught my brother stealing Vicodin that I had left over from my C-section. Going through his backpack we also found large round white pills with 562 on one side and only scored on the other side. I know he is prescribed Trazadone for sleep and was recently given some sort of antibiotics. Can anyone tell me what this particular pill may be. I thought it may be acetominophen and codein. ## I'm sorry, but I can't find a listing for anything with just a 562 on it, in our U.S. prescription drug resources. There is, however, a Trazodone tablet with a 5600 on it, that is scored on the other side, with the marking DAN DAN on the scored side. Could that possibly be the tablet you found? ...

My Neurologist has suggested Ebixa as a possibility for migraine prophylaxis. Is there any information about its use for migraine? Where can I find some information? Thanks for your help. Lana ## Ebixa contains the active ingredient Memantine, it is approved to treat Alzheimer's Disease. I am not finding any specific details on it being used for migraine prevention, either, however, your doctor is allowed to prescribe something off-label, according to his experience. I see a few articles where people have mentioned the possibility of using it to prevent them, but no details on its efficacy or testing.

I HAVE NEUROPATHY. I HAVE SEVER BURNING IN MT FEET AND SOMETIMES HANDS, I HAVE THE TINGLING ALSO IN BOTH. MY DOCTOR HAS ME ON GABA 600MGS 3 TIMES A DAY BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE HLPING WITH THE BURNING. COULD YOU PLEASR TELL ME IF THIS WOULD WORK. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. Has your doctor prescribed this? It is just various medications compounded into a cream to be used topically, but most of them have not ever been proven to be effective topically. And since you are already taking oral Gabapentin, you would need to check with your doctor before using this, since it also contains it. How long have you been taking it? It is not an actual analgesic, so it will take 4 to 6 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in your bo... ...

histinex hc syrup eth
I just wanted to know how much hydrocodone is in this stuff and what the other two components do. I have a one year old and need to be functional so is it the same as taknig a 7.5 mg lortab or 5mg or even less than that? ## which component am I allergic to? redness, itching, fast pulse,headache. ## From what I'm finding, Histinex-HC is listed as containing 2.5mgs of Hydrocodone, 5mgs of Phenylephrine and 2mgs of Chlorpheniramine, per 5ml teaspoon. You can find more Hydrocodone details here and there are more Phenylephrine details here and you can find more Chlorpheniramine details here. So, it is a very low dose and really not equivalent to Lortab or Vicodin, at all. And Martha, did you consult your doctor? That's really the only way to determine which ingredient may be causing... ...

Hydrochlorothiazide And Triamterene by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals
aunt has been taking the Sandoz Pharmaceutical, hydrochlorothiazide and triamterene for 13 yrs. the GG606, now the pharmacy is saying they can't get that one anymore that they have a new one by a different company that is the same. She has tried to take this, but it gives her a terrific heachache, where the other one didn't. Is there any pharmacy that still carries this medication by Sandoz Pharmaceutical ? ## Unfortunately, there is a shortage of the Triamterene and Sandoz is one of the companies affected, so it isn't currently available anywhere. There can be fluctuations in the active ingredients of generic medications, this may be causing changes in her blood pressure, which could cause the headaches. Has she talked to her doctor about this, yet? She may require a dosage... ...

IP188 Naproxel
What happens if your not prescribed this pill but it was giving to you by someone who has a prescription? Are there any side effects if your not in pain? Is it alright to take this kind of pain medication? Is it a narcotic? Can someone become addicted to Naproxen? Is it highly addictive like Oxycotin and Vicodine? Thank you and sorry for asking too many questions. ## Hi Alice, Not to worry, Naproxen is a widely used OTC/Rx medication and is generally regarded as safe for most individuals; which is why it's so readily available to the public. It's certainly not a narcotic, nor is it considered to be addictive at all. However, just about every pharmaceutical medication carries the risk of side effects (there's really no way around that). And although some people have also repo... ...

Levothyroxine 125 mcg tabs
What are the numbers on the tabs? ## The marking will be different from manufacturer to manufacturer, since they all have to use a unique imprint. What are the markings on the tablets you have?

THEY say its because they have to purchase 'cheapest' drug each week. I DON@T BELIEVE THIS.

Mometasone and joint pain
I was taking Mometasone for about 3 weeks for a sinus infection. I stopped about 6 weeks ago. Now I am experiencing joint pain and soreness, specifically on my wrists and hands. My back has also been feeling more sore than usual. Does anybody think it is possible that this is a result of the Mometasone? ## Hello, Alex! How are you? If you stopped taking it 6 weeks ago, then no, it isn't likely to be from the Mometasone, though it is a steroid class medication, most side effects typically wear off within a week or so of stopping it. Are you on any other medications? Did you take an antibiotic for the infection? ## I am not on any other medication. I was on an antibiotic ( I think it was Ampicillin ) for the sinus infection at the same time as I was given Mometosone to use. ...
