Strattera what is it for
Is stattera used for ADHD ? Is it the same as hypercon 10? ## Hi Lorelle, Yes, Strattera (Atomoxetine) is in fact used for the treatment of ADHD. And based on my research, Hypercon 10 is said to contain the same active ingredient (Atomoxetine); so both drugs 'should' act in the same manner. Apparently, Hypercon 10 is manufactured in India by a company called Consern Pharma. However, I don't know anything about the legitimacy or efficacy of their products, since foreign medications aren't as strictly regulated as they are here in the US. There are loads of counterfeit drugs out there, so I do wonder if you ordered this medication from a reputable pharmacy? You can learn more about this drug on the page for Atomoxetine Details Has anyone else tried these tablets? ## Does s... ...

White And Orange Capsule Pill No Imprint
5/8 " long, 1/4" wide Found in my daughter's pocket. She doesn't do illegal drugs because she takes medication for epilepsy (she's afraid other drugs will cause a seizure). One of her friends is in to "herbal supplements" and other "healthy" things. Was wondering if this might be some type of herbal supplement, and how to find out what it is. she doesn't do ## If there are no markings on it, then it is going to be difficult to determine exactly what this contains. Yes, it can be rule out as being another prescription medication, because they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. However, this does not apply to over the counter products, so it could be any one of a large number of those. Out of my own experiences, I can ... ...

glutaphos side effects
adverse effect, contraindications ## after taking glutaphos for 7 days i developed acne on my face ## Glutaphos is actually a supplement, touted to help with memory issues, it contains Glutamic Acid, Dicalcium Phosphate, Thiamine and Vitamin B12. It is available by prescription in the Phillipines. That said, since suppelements are not tested like regular prescription drugs, they are not proven to help with anything, other than a vitamin or nutrient deficiency and possible side effects are unknown. Did you have any other questions? ## is glutaphos a drug or a food suplement? ## I've been using it when i was in college in the philippines ITS OVER THE COUNTER! as simple as buying an ointment in most famous drugstores there. bought it countless of times. ## It works as a brain vitamins.... ...

Tylenol Severe Allergy
Why was this Tylenol product taken off the market? My husband & I both used this product and it really worked. I asked a Weis pharmacy employee and they could tell me why it is no longer available. They suggested contacting the company. Is there something else available to replace this product in the Tylenol line? Thank you. ## This website doesn't manufacture any medications or products, this is an information only website. As to Tylenol Severe Allergy, one of its ingredients was Pseudoephedrine and all medications that contain it are now only available at the pharmacy counter, where you have to ask for them, sign for them and show identification to make the purchase. Many manufacturers lost sales due to this restriction, so they either pulled them from the market or changed th... ...

My husband always takes dramamine when we travel to avoid motion sickness on planes, trains, taxi's, etc. It works excellently for the motion sickness, but always makes him tired and spacey. Dramamine 2 does not work as well and though doesn't make him as tired, makes him spacey for a longer period of time. So my question is if there is anything being tried in the medical research community to further eliminate the drowsiness caused? I have read that one of the ingredients in Dramamine is 8-Chlorotheophylline to counteract the drowsiness. Is there any form of Dramamine that has a higher dosage of 8-Chlorotheophylline? Or would there be any way to have 8-Chlorotheophylline prescribed separately so it could be given in a higher dose? With so many people relying on this product, it... ...

what happened to drixoral
I called Schering, the maufacturer. They are in the process of manufacturing Drixoral again in a different facility. The spokeswomen told me the supply on the shelves has been depleted, but it will be back the first of the year 2010. So hang on...I've been taking it for 40, yes 40 years. I sorely miss it. ## Do you really believe this?! Have you EVER seen a medication disappear like this with no warning? Something's up. I love Drixoral and I really miss it. ## Drixoral was discontinued by the manufacturer due to loss of sales, it contained Pseudoephedrine and had to be moved behind the pharmacy counter. A rerelease of the medication will not contain Pseudoephedrine and will likely not work as well. ## Is Drixoral a Steroid drug and do I have to be careful when taking it? ## No i... ...

Est Estrogen Mtest Tab Side Effects
I have been taking this TAB for 4-5 years-I understand from my OBGYN that it is a low dosage but my boobs have gotten bigger and I have gained weight- the pluses are it keeps me on an even keel- not anxious and more focused. How can I keep taking it for the positive effects but offset the weight gain and big boobs? ## Hi Alison, Unfortunately weight gain, and enlarged breasts are common side effects of this drug. If I were to suggest anything that would help counteract this, my first thought would be to stay on top of your eating habits. Incorporating a low fat diet would be ideal in my opinion. To put this into perspective, this would ideally be under 20 grams of fat per day. Which also means that you would need to increase either your carb and/or protein intake to help satiate you aft... ...

Lipicure contains the active ingredient Atorvastatin, which is used to help lower cholesterol and it's really not going to do anything to immediately help with a breathing problem. These types of medications take awhile to work and have an effect. And yes, all medications carry the risk of side effects, even over the counter products, ... ...

osteo bio flex
I have had lower back problems since I was in high school. I needed to have a discectomy surgery when I was 25 years of age. I will be 32 this year and there is not a day that I would like to go without taking osteo bio flex. The thing about this supplement is that you will not neccessarily notice a large difference in the way you feel, that is not until you slip up and forget to take osteo bio flex for a few days. Then you will really know exactly what it does for you! This is really an amazing supplement and I would highly recomend this to anyone. ## IS IT OK TO CUT THESE PILLS IN HALF? I CANNOT SWALLOW THEM LIKE THEY ARE. ## The only time it isn't safe to cut or break a pill is if it is time released medication. There are an over the counter supplement and are not time released, ... ...

No Imprint Yellow Coated Oblong Pill Brown Inside
I found a Yellow Oblong pill with no markings the inside is a sandy brown.. i cant find out what it is ## If you found it and are considering taking it looking for a high I don't recommend it. I did that once, lost consciousness and ended up left in a field because people thought I ODed and died. Nice, huh. People do stupid things when they are afraid. ## Without a distinct imprint code on the tablet it is nearly impossible to know what it is for sure without running a lab test. Do you have any other clues such as a manufacturer / product packaging / country of origin? ## Did you ever figure it out? I just found one of these in my house and can't find info about it anywhere on the web. ## Might be "Sam-E" which is an over-the-counter supplement. ...

Anyone have uncontrollable diarrhea while on Viibryd?
Was just weaned off Viibryd. While taking it I began to have horrible diarrhea that is continuing although I took my last Viibryd about a week ago. Help, I've lost about 12 lbs in about a week and a half. Not hungry at all.Scared and don't feel well. Help! ## Diarrhea is a known possible side effect. How long were you taking it? If you took it for awhile, I'd say about 2 weeks or more, then it may take a couple of weeks for the side effects to completely taper off. Learn more Viibryd details here. What have you tried to stop the diarrhea? Any over the counter products? Or maybe something from your doctor? ...

no imprint white with blue speck
Found a clear, sealed, plastic bag with four different unidentified pills (no imprints or markings). They're all different sizes but two are elliptical - one reddish maroon and one with gray, white, and blue specks. The other two are sort of rectangular/elliptical and one is a lighter yellow and the other is tan with orange or red specks. Anyone know what they are? ## I'm sorry, but if there are no imprints, they will be impossible to positively identify, unless you would pay to have them lab tested. The only thing we can say for certain is that they are not legal U.S. prescription medications, as they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. But, otherwise, they could be any one of a large number of over the counter items or foreign medications. Did you... ...

No local companies are pharmacy distributors carrying any longer? ## I have been told the manufacturer has quit producing this medication. I don't know what I will do as this is the only antihistamine that controlled my allergy symptoms. ## Have you tried asking your pharmacist to recommend a comparable medication with the same ingredients? The main one in these was Pseudoephedrine and while some companies have suffered slowing sales, due to the fact that in the US medications that contain it must be kept behind the counter, it is, however, still being made by some companies. As to helping with the chronic sinus infections, have you seen a doctor for that? An infection re... ...

I am a patient of gastric problem . I am using Pantodac Tab of 40mg. from last 5 years. How long I will have to use this medicine, If I am in proper diet ? ## Pantodac contains the active ingredient Pantoprazole, it is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat various gastro-intestinal conditions. And have you consulted your doctor? That is a very long to have been using this, the normal course of treatment varies from 8 to 16 weeks, depending on the condition being treated and its severity.

i took 4 oxycodone when wake up can take a subutex without getting sick
U took 4 7.5s perks around midnight will I go into withdraws if i take a 54 411 around 10am ## Dear highboi1989, u must wait until u r in withdrawals b 4 u can take the sub. If not, u could get sick and feel like crap. U should not take both together, either. It could b dangerous. So, remember, wait until u r withdrawing b 4 u take the subs. GOOD LUCK! ## There is nothing in Subutex to counteract other opiates, so someone does not have to be in full withdrawal to take it. Subutex contains only the opiate Buprenorphine. It does not contain the Naloxone that Suboxone does which so why you must be in full withdrawals, before you can take it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth... ...

I actually had to take Advils to counter the migraine I got from the codeine (which hurt more than the incisions from the operation, go figure).

all pharmacys in Tucson AZ do not have 15 mg oxycodone availability?
Why can't I get my legitimate script filled in Tucson. What's up with that? People need to get their medicine. My condition requires me to take 15mg tablets every 6 hours. I use it for break through pain and a 100 mcg fentanyl patch. If patients can't get their required, legitimate scripts filled, patients get sick because our cycle of pain goes out of control therefore, patients are unable to manage pain. Sudden unavailability exacerbates pain and is counter productive to manageing pain. Please advise. Thank You! ## I'm sorry, but this is an information only website, it's not affiliated with any medication manufacturer, or pharmacy. As to why you can't get it filled, has your pharmacy provided you with an answer? They should be able to let you know if they don... ...

Hypertension and Sleeping
I am 65 and have had hypertension treated sucessfully with Ibestartin 300/12.5, Amlodine 5mg and perindopril 5mg very successfully. Six weeks I had an emergency admission to hospital with incapacitating leg pain.and as a result had a microdiscectomy and forminotomy operation which was successful. As i have always monitored my BP I was concerned to see my BP increase to levels around 170/90. My doctor changed my medication to Coveram 10x10mg to counter this in place of Amlodopine and Perindopril, which I understand and agree with. Can you advise when results might be reasonably be seen with this increase in dosage. Also I take Zolpidem 5mg and as this is not always effective am considering also taking 2mg of Circadin prescribed by my doctor rather than increase Zolpidem. Is this a reason... ...
