50 mg morphine patch
A 50mg morphine patch has been prescribed by an oncologist and is too strong for my uncle who has terminal stomach cancer. Is it o.k. to cut the patch in half? He is not in pain but is like a zombie. ## Hello, Christine! How is your uncle? No, that could result in his getting too much of the medication at once, which risks an overdose. How long has he been using them? The zombie like effect should improve, as his body gets used to the medication. But if it continues longer than a few weeks, then he should consult his doctor. 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 and constipation. ...

Adipex: a good start
I just want to share my adipex expierence. I took the 37.5 mg strength for 3 months and lost 20 pounds. Not the most, but it's a great start. I also started exercising-Zumba 2x a week, walks, swimming, etc. It isn't easy but if you are dedicated you will see results. I was scared to start the medication & searched forums just like these for people's opinions. The medication made my mouth dry (drink lots of water) and sometimes made me jittery/hyper but other than that I felt fine on the medication. My doctor wants me to come back in 6 months to start again (Ohio) but I think I will just continue to drop weight steadily through diet and exercise. Just with losing 20 pounds I feel so much of a difference. I have more energy & stamina & have seen great toning result... ...

Is GLYB/Metform 5- 500 the same has Metformin hcl 500mg
I have two medications one is the GLYB/Metform 5-500 mg and the other is Metformin hcl 500 mg. I only use the Metformin hcl 500 mg only.

levemir and chest pain
I started using levemir for the first time last night. About thirty minutes after I took it I started getting chest pains. It didn't start out too bad then got worse. It lasted about maybe an hour. Could it have something to do with the levemir? I also think I have really bad anxiety so I don't know if that could of been a factor. I'm nervous to take it tonight. Last night I brushed it off but I'm really hoping it doesn't happen again tonight. Any suggestions? ## My suggestion is to contact your doctor and have yourself checked out immediately. Chest pain is nothing to play around with and wait out. It could be due to a serious medical issue. Yes, there's a chance that it's nothing and just related to stomach acid, or your anxiety, but it's not worth taki... ...

metoprolol er ear ach
Can metoprolol 100 cause ear pain ## Hi Roy, Metoprolol doesn't appear to list any adverse effects associated with ear pain in particular. However I have noticed a number of reports from users taking this medication who experienced what they call a "pulsating/ringing/buzzing" sound in the ear. That said, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it does cause ear pain in some patients as a result of this low/high pitch frequency. If it has become too bothersome or severe, I would just suggest contacting your doctor and/or reporting it to the FDA's MedWatch (Adverse events) program online at Do you think the ear ache could possibly be related to something else as well? Or does it only happen when you take this medication? ...

I have read so many side effects and it concerns me Ianc ## Hi, no need to worry I been taking Promazine for a while now, it really does help, it can cause irritating side effects but I found that happened when I took it at night with my Mirtazapine, so I took it during the day instead, and found I rarely suffered any side effects, if you do happen to get side effects tell your doctor as there are always other alternatives you could try, good luck hope this helps you, best regards Ceri :) ...

yellow gabapentin cap 300mg with "D 03"
Since my pharmacist changed the brand I'm getting my feet and legs have swelled considerably. I didn't notice the swelling at first, so am not sure if there's something else that's changed with other products I use, but I don't think so. Could it be this brand of gabapentin that is causing the swelling? ## Hello, Slinnie! How are you? What else do you take and what are your medical conditions? Gabapentin can cause peripheral edema, though it is very rare. Have you consulted your doctor? It's very important that you do so to get to the root of the problem, since it could also be the sign of a serious medical issue. ...

I am 56 year old diabetes patient. Currently suffering from IBD (colon infection). Can i take chymoral forte for digestion as well to reduce IBD? ## Chymoral Forte contains the active ingredient Trypsin, this is a protease commonly found in the digestive system. As to whether or not you can safely use it, this site is not medical professionals and do not have information on your medical history or other medications, so it would be remiss of us to try and advise you on that.

Doxycycline 50mg
Ive moved to Australia from New Zealand and since arriving three months ago my face has had the worst case of acne ever. I did get a mild case of acne in high school but it got better over the years. Now since living in Australia Ive noticed extreme acne and red, puffy. itchy and dry rashes on my face. I used proactive for the first time a month and a half ago and that did help clear the pimples after a week or so but the rashes quickly spread and my face started burning. I then decided to stop using proactive and see the doctor. The doctor then prescribed me Doxycycline 50g which i have to take once every day for 6 months and also wash my face with a unscented, acne-free soap bar. My face did start to clear up but then quickly spread to other parts of my face. I did notice an improveme... ...

I suffer from severe gerd, was diagnosed about 3yrs ago. I was on nexium but due to availability I changed to pantocid. My question is for how long can one be on either pantocid or nexium? ## Pantocid contains the active ingredient Pantoprazole, which is in the same class as the Esomeprazole in the Nexium, so they are both proton pump inhibitors that are used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach. The length of time for use can vary, depending on the severity of the condition being treated. You should follow your doctor's advice to get the best results. In most cases, they are used for anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks and the effects of using them long-term have not been studied. However, so far, there haven't been any major adverse reports tied to the medications in p... ...
