ok to take 2 year expired cheratussin ac
7 Replies RSS
Found my old bottle but expired July 2012.. is it OK to take it? ## Liquids have a much shorter shelf life, because they tend to degrade faster than other forms of medications and they can also turn rancid, which could make you ill. Thus, it would be best to just dispose of it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## it is fine sorry i didn't see this before. I have saved mined up to 4 yrs. & it worked.... I work for a chemist & he told me aspirin integrity stays intact 30 yrs. However this is NOT the formula for all drugs, but from personal exp. my cough med, stayed intact fine. Ever notice on all drugs now-a-days says expires in one year. what a miracle that everything goes bad in 12 months at the same time. ## We have the same thing, 2 year old Ceratussin AC and hubby ...

Brompheniramine-DM Drug Information
1 Reply RSS
My son is 9 yrs old and weighs 89 lbs. How much Brompheniramine-DM should I administer and how often can I give it to him? ## Has this medication been prescribed for him? You should always follow his doctor's dosing instructions, or those provided on the packaging. Is he on any other medications? Does have any chronic medical conditions? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, and dry mouth.

Propan Multivitamins

how long will i take propan multivitamins to have ? ## HOW LONG I WILL TAKE PROPAN MULTIVITAMINS TO ENSURE THAT IT WILL EFFECT? ## Well, since it is just a multivitamin, there is no harm in taking it everyday, on a long-term basis, as long as you don't overdo it by taking more than you should. As to how long before it has an effect, this isn't something that is really studied, since they are supplements, rather than actual drugs. Beneficial effects won't happen overnight, but it will immediately start to improve your levels of the vital nutrients it contains. It's listed as containing: Buclizine 25mg, Iron 80mg, nicotinamide 10mg, B1 10mg, B12 5mcg, B2 1mg and B6 5mg. Are there any other comments or questions? ## what is the possible time if i am going to take propan wit...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
621 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At the people's pharmacy there is an article about this very problem, yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a mon...

The Old Actifed
69 Replies RSS
I'm looking for the old formulation of actifed. Are there any countries that still sell it? I know you can use it to make drugs, but it's the only thing that works for me (and it helps me sleep too). I would not have ANY problem having the FBI at my house if I could get some. They'd be sitting on my shelf just exactly like my 16 bottles of shampoo, 42 bars of soap and 18 boxes of bandaids (I'm not a hoarder, I just hate running out of stuff...and stupidly, before that stuff went away, I didn't buy a ton of it). The stuff they sell behind the counter is a's different. ## John, Did anyone ever respond to your posting with a solution of how to find the old actifed? I stock up on stuff and want some, too. I just took my last one today. ## I looked...

promethazine with codeine doctor
2 Replies RSS
I need some promethazine with codeine. Do doctors still prescribe it? ## I'm sorry, but this website does not manufacture, prescribe nor sell any medications or products. It is an information only resource. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, constipation and dry mouth. Have you consulted a medical professional? What condition do you take it to treat? ## I have a painful burning cough which definitely hasn't gotten better. This gives me sleeping problems from not being able to breathe correctly. How do I get my doctor to prescribe promethazine with codeine?

Syrup Relent
3 Replies RSS
Do we get relent syrup seperately for babies or its the same 60ml bottle?Is it safe to give relent+ syrup for 5 months old baby? ## Relent syrup contains cetirizine 2.5 mg + ambroxol 30 mg; per 5mL From what I could gather, the prescribing information for this drug notes the following: Children: 6 month's - 2 years old: 2.5 mg once daily (up to 2.5 mg bid in children =12 months). There are no dosing indications for children under 6 months of age, but since your child is only 1 month away from that, I would suggest talking to your doctor about this just to be on the safe side. I hope this helps! ## If your Paediatric doctor recommend it Relent+ syrup can be given to 6 month old child as dosages suggested by doctor. ## My son is suffering from running and watery nose and 11 months old...

Thank you. ## can i take bioflu and neosep at the same time? i feel i will have colds and athe same time i felt like having itchy throath like having cough... should i take one? ## Its a bad combination since all medecines you took at the same time contains paracetamol.
