Excipients Q S to 1560mg
4 Replies RSS
what is this drug that is found in Program Plus tablets that my labrador is taking for heartworm protection. It says Excipients Q.S. to 1560mg. What is this word or drug??? ## I would like to know what the excipients are in Program Plus ## Hi Eddy, The words 'Q. S.' is an acronym for 'Quantity Sufficient'. Excipients are all the other ingredients in the product apart from the drug. In latin language, Q. S. means 'quantum sufficit'. Hence, the phrase on the product that you have referred means, other ingredients have been added to make up the weight to 1560 mg. ## Program Plus is used to help prevent fleas and heartworms. The specific ingredients are Milbemycin Oxime and lufenuron. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Thanks for the reply. I know what the... ...

Getting used to Lexapro
1 Reply RSS
I took 5 mg last night and can't function today. My legs feel like Jello and I had to leave work. The doctor says it will take time for my body to get used to it, but I have 2 kids and things to do. How do people take this and have a regular life? ## Hello, Shaewest! Sorry about the side effect you experienced. There are many people that take it and lead a normal life, but that doesn't necessary mean that it's the right medication for you. If it was so severe that you had to leave work, then you should likely have another discussion with your doctor about trying something different. Side effects should be mild and transient, they shouldn't be so severe that they cause this type of issue. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Hydros In Blister Packs
2 Replies RSS
My friend gave me a ten pack of what he said are 10/500 hydros. They are yellow no impront,but a score in the middle on one side. Back of pack says 10/500 mallinckrodt but ive never seen um like this. He wouldnt say where they came from so anyone got a take on this. ## In my (past) experience they are from india or some other foreign maker. Most likely they are fake. They coul possibly be real but either way they probably cost A LOT OF MONEY and are trash. God only knows what they fill those things with. Good luck with them. ## Mallinckrodt is a well known pharmaceutical manufacturer, but I have to agree with the other person that posted that these tablets are highly suspect. My reasoning for this is due to the fact that Mallinckrodt uses their M logo on all of their prescription produc... ...

Citalopram Hbr 20 Mg Tab
1 Reply RSS
Could citalopram Hbr 20 mg tab cause itching of the skin on arms, head and face? Warning on bottle mentions "avoid prolonged sunlight". ## Hi Vickie, If it says to avoid prolonged sunlight, the medication probably causes some sort of Photosensitivity. Photosensitivity is a skin reaction (i.e. rash) that occurs after exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or an artificial light source. This could explain the very symptoms you're describing. I do also want to note that itching, rashes, swelling, hives or blisters, are all listed as severe side effects of Citalopram; in which case it would probably be best to let your doctor know about this as soon as possible. Ref: I hope this information helps! ...

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day.

I am in the Covington la. northshore of new Orleans. I have unrelenting RA and sciatica because of spinal stenosis. I have been on an antiinflamatory and Norco 5 a day for over a yr. my orthopedic says I have to go to pain management. I don't want shots in my spine. does anyone know of a pain dr. in this area who can treat these conditions with opiates? I sleep maybe 3 hrs a day, neverat night because the RA is too painful. constant panic attacks! ## There is no way of knowing how a dr will treat you until you've seen them a few times. If you call and ask if a dr only uses pain meds, you will be told no because thatis a red flag for drug seeking behavior. Have you seen a Rheumatoligist for the RA ? Have you seen a Neurologist for an EMG for the sciatica ? You will need a copy of... ...

Tramadol not effective
3 Replies RSS
I have taken Tramadol, manufactured by Apotex, for the past nine months. Together, my neurostimlator and 200 mg. of Tramadol per day helped me to be virtually pain free! I renewed my Tramadol prescription last week and the new prescription says Tramadol, but this time the manufacturer is TEVA. This time, I continue to have pain and it is now the second week, and I am feeling intense pain. It is as if I was not taking any pain medication at all (my stimulator continues to work, but no one is ever promised that a neurostimulator will rid anyone of all pain. I have a friend who was switched to Tramadol from Apotex Manufacturing (the exact one I had for nine months) and is now taking Tramadol manufactured by TEVA. She is finding the same problem; it will not rid her of the pain she suffers.... ...

My Doctor gave this to me. Its a free sample of a pain cream for the tendons in my wrists (I think she said I could also use it on my back for my scoliosis). I always look up side effects of any medication I use, but when I went to look it up I noticed it didn't have a name. It says "this medicine was specially compounded per your prescriber" on the side. I just want to know what this is so I can know the side effects before using it. Dose anyone know what this is? ## Hello, Anna! How are you? I know what some of these ingredients are, CYC is Cyclobenzaprine a muscle relaxant, LID is Lidocaine a topical anesthetic and BAC is Baclofen another muscle relaxant, but I'm not sure on the DIC and BUP.

Can you break 100mg tabs if you need only 50mg ## It is safe to do with any medication that is not time released, unless your doctor, or pharmacist has specifically instructed you not to do so. For instance, some medications may have a special warning sticker on the pharmacy bottle that says not to break, crush, or chew and there are reasons for that, so you should heed such warnings. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

HI. I switched from zoloft to celexa 20mg almost four weeks ago. I feel like Im going downhill more and more everyday this past week. I truly do not think it is a matter of increasing. I am very skeptical about this particular generic. It is an egg shape and kind of a tan color. On the scored side it says 20 and the other side says 1010. I get it from Target. I do not think it is an active medication. Are their crappy generics that have zero effect? Thank you for your time. ## You probably just need the brand specifically. Some states say that if there is a generic available and the dr doesn't specify "brand only" you will get a generic. Talk to your dr because sometimes generics don't work for some people. ## It may also be caused by the switch in medications, around 4 ... ...
