hydrocodone/APAP 10/650 or Hydrocodon-Acetaminophn 10-ITP
What is the difference between the two medicines that I have listed above. I get sick to my stomach when I took the 10-ITP. I never get sick on the 10/650 ## Is the "ITP" something your doctor wrote on the prescription, or something from the pharmacy that was printed on their label? I'm not finding any information whatsoever on the abbreviation other than: "Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) - a disorder of the immune system that affects the platelets." I also attempted to search for a correlation between ITP and acetaminophen; in which case, patients with ITP can "take only acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol) for pain or fever, as other over-the-counter pain and fever medications may damage platelet function". Does "ITP" mean anything different to yo... ...

orange round pill ## do these work and are they intended to help insomnia ## does any gernic international ambien come in a peanu shaped pill that is beige in color no markings or a funny shaped blue pill no markings or a tiny round light pink with 20 imprint? ## Norma, in the U.S. all legal prescription drugs have to have an imprint of some sort on them. This is under Federal Law, they must have markings that allow them to be identified according to drug, manufacturer and dosage. Therefore, in the U.S. if it has no marking, it is NOT a prescription medication!! In rare instances, you will run into foreign drugs with no markings and no way to positively identify them, but in most cases if they have no marking, they are something over the counter. There is a Canadian tablet that is descr... ...

It says no red or purple, but would blue and orange gatorade be off limits since it is close to those colors? ## My best guess is that it has something to do with a specific ingredient or dye that's used in the red and purple, so the other colors should be fine as long as they aren't specifically on the list. Learn more Suprep details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My doctor said no ARTIFICIAL colors. I couldn't eat a red jello but could drink a red juice if it had no artificial colors. All docs have their opinions. I'm not sure why my doc insisted on me raking Suprep when many I know were told to take over the counter laxatives. I think it's because the doctor gets a kick back from prescribing it!!! I won't take it again. It is so nasty tasting... ...

Picture Of A Cup With Straw
I found this pill in my daughters room and dont know what it is. Its a small round peach pill with a picture of a bowl( i'm guessing that's what it is) with a stick in it(stirring stick maybe or a straw). Please help me with this. Thank you for your time ## Is it possibly a mortar and pestle? That would be a little bowl and the mixing/crushing implement used by pharmacist and chemists. I think I'm on the right track, but it is a logo used by several different companies, so I want to be sure. However, the ones that I am aware of are all over the counter products.

pink oval tablet, W (or fancy M) on one side, bisect
I found this pink (pinkish-orange maybe) tablet, flat oval shaped (like a flat football) with a curly 'W' on one side (or a fancy cursive M maybe) and a bisecting line cutting it in half on the other. Anybody know what this could be? There are no numbers on it. ## Have you found out what this is because I have found the same thing ## I'm sorry, but I haven't been able to find an identification for this, yet. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. The vagueness of the imprint leads me to suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product, which may make it difficult to find. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ...

White Diamond shaped solid pill no markings brown speckled on inside
My friend has been taking these White diamond shaped pills everyday right before soccer practice, he says they are energy supplements. I took one from him and cut it in half and the white is only a thin layer on the outside the inside is brown speckled with small yellow, dark blue, and black spots. Does anyone know what this pill is? It has no markings. ## If there are no markings, it is going to be difficult to determine what it contains. We can rule it out as being a U.S. prescription medication, because they are all required, under law, to have an imprint to enable their identification. However, it could be any one of a large number of over the counter products. I've seen many vitamin supplements that meet this description, however, there is also a chance that this may be a forei... ...

white pill no markings oxycodone
I bought it in Nassau Bahamas. Looks like white round percocet. Line down the middle but has zero markings. Can it be right? He popped it out a blister pack but I didn't get to read it. ## Tylenol w/Codeine (#3) is avail in Bahamas w/o ?× (a local drugstore, in Nassau, for example) & have seen them come in blister pack— Use caution!! ## @MM, This really strikes me as being a counterfeit, but without a marking it could literally be anything. I just wouldn't recommend trying it until you have a proven way to verify what it actually is. This may mean that you have to send it off first to be analyzed by a lab for accuracy. Keep in mind that oxycodone is only available by prescription throughout most places in the world and all the legitimate ones tend to have an impri... ...

round green pill imprinted F on one side
I found a round, green pill with the letter F on one side of the pill and no imprint on the other side of the pill. It's probably about the color of a lime and about the size of a soma (Carisiprodol). I can't figure out what this pill is and went to pill I.D., but they had no results which matched that criteria. Can u please help me identify this pill? It is driving me crazy. ## I can't tell you but Google possibly can? Type in 'green pill imprinted F on one side' ## Hello, Frank! How are you? Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find anything matching this description, so far. The rather obscure imprint leads me to suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product of some type. Where was it found? Some over the counter products are regional, so know... ...

Weight Gain Problems
Hi, I found that a drug called seroquil ....even though it its a antipsychotic drug, many addictionologists will prescribe it for sleep and it actually works...for me anyway. AND for me it will give me the endless "munchies." My problem is taking it at night for sleep and I have a condition known as GERD that is a problem of food that backs up into the esophagus and causes me to inhale my food into my lungs.For seroquil, they even list on the side effects that it will cause weight gain. Though I have heard from a VERY VERY few that for some it causes them to lose weight. If you do not want to go that route, there are over the counter natural herbal supplements you can try such as Melatonin,Valerian Root(you may find that it has an unpleasant odor but once you take it, it goes aw... ...

Drixoral Substitute
Great news! I have FINALLY found the substitute for Drixoral Cold & Allergy and wish someone had told me before I had to suffer with allergy symptoms for so long. It's a combination of one Mucinex DM tablet and one Aleve-D Sinus & Cold tablet; take one of each at the same time and within an hour you'll feel like a brand new person! Mucinex DM is an OTC expectorant and cough supressant and Aleve-D (an extended release medicine) can be found behind the counter (you have to ask for it and show ID), but I found both at Walmart. I know the name brands cost more, but do not bother buying substitutions because they simply will not work; since Drixoral has not been available, I already have tried soooooo many that didn't help at all. Good Luck and I hope this works as well f... ...

Black Capsule No Imprint
I found a black solid Capsule in my husband's dresser drawer. there is a whole bottle but he has peeled most of the label so that I can't read it. Now Im not sure what it is. Im in a real bind because he takes prescription medicine and tend to not take it the correct way. So Im curious if the pill he is taking now may be giving him a little boost of something else. Thank You. ## I'm sorry, but if there are no markings, it is going to be very difficult to determine what this contains.

Drixoral cold and sinus
Looking for the original little green pill ## At this time, it is no longer being manufactured and sold in the U.S. by the manufacturer Schering-Plough. It's still available in Canada and a few other countries, but not anywhere in the U.S. So, you may be able to find a website to order it from. In case you want to look for an alternative medication, it contains the active ingredients Dexbrompheniramine and Pseudoephedrine, the latter of which is now only available from behind the counter at your pharmacy, so you'd have to ask them if they carry anything that contains both of them. It does not, however, require a prescription for purchase. Learn more Pseudoephedrine details here. Learn more Dexbrompheniramine details here. Did you try asking at the pharmacy? ## Have used drixoral... ...

Fexofen Pse
I have a prescription dated 3/02/2010. Are they still good to take? ## Is Fexofenadine Pse 60, 120 mg gluten free? The numbers on the pills are 93 T13. ## Blew, tablets are generally good for one year from the date they were dispensed by your pharmacy, so the expiration date should have been 03/01/2011, after which they start to lose efficacy. It is probably best to see your doctor for a new prescription. Michelle, the inactive ingredients in those tablets are listed as follows: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium, Magnesium Stearate, Carnuba Wax, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Hypromellose and Polyethylene Glycol.
