Pill Gg 739

I jus broke 2 fingers and tore the skin of them and got prescribed some pill with GG 739 how exactly does it help I have taken 3 in one day and hasn't helped yet ## Based on the description provided, I found your pill to be Diclofenac sodium delayed release (75 mg).

tapering off predisone

Hi, my teenage daughter has been taking 40mgs for a little over a month. The doctor is now tapering her off. We are currently at 25. In the process she has had pseudoseizures and passing out.

Thank you. ## Hello, Alicia! How is your daughter doing? Fainting can be due to withdrawal syndrome, which can occur in some people, even if they are tapering off of steroids and aren't stopping them abruptly, as reported by the NIH. However, after research, I've not seen anything about pseudoseizures. Is she on any other medications? Has she ever experienced them before? ## No she hasn'...
