is sulpiride sulphur based medicine?

I am allergic to sulphur. The name sulpiride suggest a sulphur content. Does the sulpiride in the espiride contain any sulphur? ## am allergic to sulphur. The name sulpiride suggest a sulphur content. Does the sulpiride in the espiride contain any sulphur? ## I think you are confusing a sulfa based medication, with Sulfur/Sulphur, but they are not the same. Being allergic to one, does not automatically mean you will be allergic to the other. Which one are you actually allergic to, and what allergy symptoms do you experience? Allergic reactions typically include symptoms such as headache, hives, itching, swelling, and trouble breathing. Are the prescribing doctor, and your pharmacy aware of your allergies?


I used to take these pills as a child in the 60s thru 70s for allergies. does it still exist? and what are the ingredients? its a round coated green small tablet. thank you for your help sylvia ## Pyrobenzamine was prescribed for the relief of respiratory ailment. ## I was given pyrobenzamine as a kid for rose fever - I think it was in the 40's.

Recently when I went in to ask a pharmacist about pyrobenzamine, I was looked at like I was crazy! ## Sorry, but your description will not really help much, there are no proprietary guidelines in the pharmaceutical industry for colors or shapes of pills. Therefore, t...

inr reading and zyrtec

will zyrtec alter my pro-time? I take Coumadin because I have a St. Judes mechanical aortic valve. ## Over the course of several months my Pro-time INR readings have been satisfactory---requirng no change in Coumadin dosage. "Suddenly" the readings became erratic-- to the extent that instead of monthly pro- times--I've had to have the INR checked weekly. The only "new" drug I've been taking is Zyrtec. I asked my PCP if Zyrtec can influence the INR. She replied-- "It's possible." So I cut out the Zyrtec--even though it's been very helpful. After 2-3 weekly checks --sans Zyrtec----things are okay. I wonder if any of your respondents have had similar experience. Thank you ## Yes, it is possible for Zyrtec to cause that as a side effect, along with di...

Cyproheptadine For Weight Gain

Is Periactin safe to increase weight? Is that effect permanent weight gain or only as long as i take it? ## Periactin, which contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine, normally used to treat allergies. And, just like any medication, it does have risks and side effects, so no, just using it in attempt to gain weight is not considered safe. It can cause an increased appetite in some people, which sometimes causes them to gain some weight, however, it is usually not significant and the effects don't continue, when someone stops the medication. In addition, any method of gaining weight artificially, that doesn't involve a healthy diet and exercise can have severe detrimental effects on your health. Are there any other questions? ## Thanks for the info Verwon....
