Next to my fill date of generic Percocet I usually have a MCRK code but this new supplier has MADV. Is there a meaning for this? I just feel it's not as strong as what I've been getting ## This new medication 5/325 Oxycodone / APAP has RP stamped on one side of medication ## Hello, Tom! How are you?

In case of emergency, the pharmacies do this to keep track of the manufacturer and/or distributor and the RP is a manufacturers logo. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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. Is there anything else... ...

I was recently perscribed tylonal 3s with codine for pain for an absess in my tooth and on the bottle hand written in black pen is the letters xy what does that mean ## Also I was perscribed penicilian at the same time and there is nothing hand written on that bottle ## Those types of markings are just used by the pharmacy to show that the prescription and tablet count were double checked for accuracy. Learn more Acetaminophen details here. Learn more Codeine details here. It's often done with any medications that contain narcotics or other controlled substances, especially if the prescription was originally handled by a pharmacy technician. That marking shows that an actual pharmacist double checked everything, before you were given the pills. It's really an extra way for the p... ...

what does 100 MCG mean vs 0.1 MG
1 Reply RSS
I ran out of synthroid. It shows 0.1MG. I got a temporary bottle that shows 100MCG. Are they the same? ## Hi Lucille, Conversion tools verify that 100mcg (micrograms) is actually equal to 0.1mg (milligrams), so you should have nothing to worry about as far as taking the correct dosage is concerned. If you were given the temporary bottle by another pharmacy, that could explain why they used a different measurement than you were used to seeing. I hope this helps! ...

on one of my prescriptions on the bottle it says OXYCODON HCL-APAP 10/325 and the pill is oblong. I had them refilled and the bottle says OXYCODONE-APAP 10-325 and the pill is round. So what I want to know is what the HCL stands for and are these the same medications? ## Hello, Anne! How are you? Yes, they are the same. The HCL just stands for Hydrochloride and designates the specific chemical salt that the medication is derived from, they just didn't include it on the one label. 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.

what is the thickening of mastoid boner and how does it affect hearing
1 Reply RSS
I have been having fluid in my ears since May and have take three bottles of nasial spray 2 different antibodics and 2 boxes of mucinex d and my dr order ct scan. The results says i have a thickening of the mastoid bone. What is the treatment for this and will my ears ever clear up? ## Hello, Mert! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you'r having. Such thickening is common, when someone experiences a problem that becomes chronic, like yours has. It means it has become inflamed and you may need to have a tube inserted in your ear to allow the fluid to drain. Letting it remain untreated can create the risk of nerve damage that could cause facial paralysis, meningitis and other serious health complications. Have you consulted an ENT, yet? With proper treatment, your ears ... ...

I have a brand new persciption of teva- amoxicillin ,, I had a gum infection,,within two pills the pain was gone and I have this bottle full.. I now have temperature with which I believe I have a chest infection,, will this medication help. ## Amoxicillin is an antibiotic, which can be used to treat many different type of infections. However, you should finish the full course of the medication, as prescribed, even if you start to feel better, before you have finished. The pain may have went away, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the infection cleared up. Thus, you could be sick now, because it was never fully treated and has now spread to other parts of your body. In addition, only taking part of the prescription for an antibiotic creates the very real risk of developing antib... ...

A Sealed Bottle of Sun from another land, India?
3 Replies RSS
I have not seen a sealed bottle in quite some time. Today the Doctor wrote for 100 2 MG and I got a full bottle. Now they're from India. Is this going to be a problem. How is Sun. Should I try one being that its from India and all? Are they safe. Answers to these questions would mean little to me as I have many Xanax from different makers made worldwide. Sure they might differ from time to time, but it is not like I have a choice when I visit my Pharmacy. Any FDA approved HORROR Stories about Sun, White Oblong 11? ## Great, I just checked our board and found out these Xanax pills are not liked by most. Well I'll put them in the back of the cue and pull out a new bottle. I am working on my 2011 supply. Another $1.93 possibly wasted (along with $20 to the doc!) ## Hello, Eddy! How... ...

I suppose then you think all pills marked with an M are morphine or perhaps Methadone?
