6 day Prednisone treatment
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Prednisone for 4 days so far. 6 the first day, 5 the second, 4 the third and supposed to be 3 today. However, I only took 2 doses today before I realized that I accidentally threw the prescription out. Do I need to call the Pharmacy to get the last two days worth or will I go into withdrawal? Thanks ## It would be best to consult your doctor, or pharmacist to be sure of what you should do. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, fluid retention, and irritability. How did you end up accidentally throwing it out?

prestodol / Mexican antibiotic?
5 Replies RSS
Prestodol -- this is a prescription drug I got in Mexico after dental work. It is made by Rayera (the logo is a capital R in a square circle). And under Prestodol it reads Clonixinato de Lisina. I am wondering if this is an antibiotic as that is what the dentist wanted me to take for the removal of a tooth. I live a long way from Mexico and can't go back to check. If you could help, I'd really appreciate it. ## According to spanish Wikipedia, Clonixinato de lisina is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which is used for pain relief [1]. Available in doses of either 125 or 250 mg. It did not say anything about it being an antibiotic. Sounds like the dentist simply gave you these to help with pain. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back...

Hydrocortisone 7.5-325 is equal to methadone hcl 10?
1 Reply RSS
I take methadone hcl 10 MG tab for Fibromyalgia. I have hydrocortisone Apap 7.5 325MG tab as a backup to help when the pain gets too intense. But I'm out of town and I'm out of methadone. I have hydroco. My question to you is, how many hydroco do I need to take a day to equal to the methadone. I'm take the methadone 4 times a day. ## There is really no way to compare the two and give you an equivalent dosage. It also doesn't contain Hydrocortisone, the narcotic opiate in it is Hydrocodone. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, it may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. How often have you been told to take the Hydrocodone? What are the prescribing instructions?
