g600 oblong white pill
1 Reply RSS
I have an oblong white pill with the imprint G 600 - What is it? I do not want to take the wrong medication and make things worse for myself. ## The tablet with the marking G 600 is listed as containing 600mgs of Ibuprofen, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Teva 5728 pill uses
1 Reply RSS
What is this medication used for? Is it in the drug class of lastix? And is it used to help with diabetes / fluid retention? If not, what can be used for fluid retention and major swelling? Also, what's the name brand name? Please reply ASAP. {edited for privacy}. Thank you. ## Teva lists this tablet as containing 20mgs of Famotidine, which is an antacid that is used to treat, or prevent heartburn, GERD, or gastritis. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, and stomach pain. The name brand for it would be Pepcid. As to the swelling and fluid retention, you should see your doctor, so they can prescribe an appropriate medication. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

I have sinusitis and my doc prescribed me an antibiotic that starts with the letter "O" but I don't know what it is. ## Was it possibly Orbifloxacin (Orbax)?

heavy periods eliquis
1 Reply RSS
I was diagnosed with a blood clot in my leg after foot surgery a couple weeks, i am on Eliquis. I started my period 24 hours ago and it is so heavy with tons of huge clots that it's making me really nervous. I have had so many "accidents" in less than 24 hours than i usually do in 6 cycles. I went through a thick heavy flow overnight pad in 4 hours. All through the night i had to get up and go to the bathroom every 45 minutes which didn't leave time for much sleep, I'm nervous to fall asleep for more than an hour or two at a time. Is this normal, I'm only 37. ## Yes, Eliquis can cause you to bleed more and experience more clots, during your menstrual cycle, according to FDA warnings. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and headache. However, it is best to ...

Poisoned, intentional,

In July of 2017, i was admitted in the hospital for fluid overload, (I am on dialysis) my primary doctor was there and ordered xrays for my chest and had said my chest was clear and he left. But the other residents lied to me and said that i had pneumonia. And they proceeded to give me bags of levoflaxacin through if. Since I've been home, i am experiencing a strange discharge, my jaw is swollen on my left side, i had high blood pressure, lupus, pacemaker and on dialysis. It is October and have not taken one blood pressure pill because my pressure drops significantly during dialysis, i believe it is because of the levoflaxacin. I was given medication that i did not want or need and i guess that this is ok because I am powerless to do anything about this. I am angry because I am stil...

nifedipine and dreams
5 Replies RSS
I am taking 60mg of nifedipine and I am having unpleasant dreams every night. Is there an alternative which does not have this side effect? ## Hello, Mick! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're experiencing. That is possible with most medications. How long have you been taking it? Most side effects tend to go away, once your body gets used to a medication, which generally takes about 4 to 5 weeks. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. There are other medications available, so if it's still happening and it's been longer than 5 weeks, it will most likely just be a matter of trial and error to find one that doesn't cause you such an issue. ## I've been taking nifedi...

Ibuprofen, Tylenol and Sulfamethoxazole
1 Reply RSS
I've had a bad toothache for the most part of the day. I took 2 ibuprofen around 6 this morning, then two Tylenol after my bike ride around 11 a.m. and then I took 2 ibuprofen around 4 p.m. and I took my first dose of sulfamethoxazole around 8:20 p.m... Could this hurt me? ## How are you feeling? Did you experience any adverse effects? The FDA does warn that combining these medications could result in more nausea, drowsiness, and dizziness than usual. Are you on any other medications?
