Did I overdose on Prednisone?

I was prescribed Prednisone (60MG) 3x daily for 7 days and was supposed to take one every 8 hours 3x daily. But instead I took one every 4-5 hours unknowingly for 5 days...straight I stopped taking them after the 5th day. Because I got panic attacks and migraines. I've been off Prednisone for 5 days now and have been feeling the worst anxiety of my life...I cannot control it or calm myself down and I've been having physical weakness and extreme fatigue and stress. Should I be worried? ## You need to notify the prescribing doctor and explain exactly what has happened. When you start taking Prednisone, the body stops making cortisol on it's own. The two things you mention, headaches and panic, are side effects of the Prednisone. If Prednisone is not tapered down properly it ca...

what is Auroflam-MX used for

I'm having pain from a recent excess in physical exertion. Flamar was recommended but the pharmacist gave us Auroflam. Is it a substitute for Flamar? ## Hello, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. Do you feel like the Auroflam has been helping at all?

oblong pill ad 01

What is it it plain blue on other side no marking ## Yes. Same problem. Oblong blue pill AD01 on one side and nothing on the other. Plain blue on back. No markings or scoring. ## It looks like several other people here are also trying to identify this same blue oblong pill in the following discussion thread: Discuss/blue-oblong-pill-ad-01-280640.htm I've yet to find any specific details as to what it might be. No one else has seemed to have had any success either. Having said this, I think it could be worth while taking the pill into a local pharmacy to see if they have any particular way of determining its contents. Perhaps even a lab analysis or drug panel kit could also lend us some clues in the event that a controlled substance is present; so that may be something to look into a...

Dicl Gaba Lido Pril

What is the compound DICL/GABA/LIDO/PRIL? ## As you mentioned, this sounds like a compounded medication.

The soles of my feet also feel really tight. Are these known side effects?
