Oblong bluegreen MRK 951 tablet

I've found two posts similar to this tablet that was found in my bottle of Levetiracetam (epilepsy medication). It looks nothing like my pills and I have no idea what it is.

What Is The Best Generic Of Lamictal

I've been taking the generic for Lamictal for about five years. Recently I've been feeling different at about the beginning of the year. I use to take the white ones but now I am taking a generic by Taro. What is the best generic for this drug? I never really payed any attention until I started getting this crazy migraines. If anyone has any insights it would be much appreciated. ## There's really no way to say which is the best, since different people can react differently, so it depends on what works for you. The best idea I can give you is to check with your pharmacy and see who manufactured the ones that you used to take and ask if they can order them back in for you. They usually can and will sometimes do so for their regular customers. Does anyone else have any advice ...

Urbanol and Lexamil

Hi Guys, I've started on Lexamil and Urbanol and noticed a spike in my heart rate. I normally get an average of 100 - 120 and max of 160bpm in my cycling workouts but now see I've jumped to a max 240bpm and average of 190pbm this week. Im 38, 86kg , and rather fit. Please advise if these meds could be the reason? Thank you ## If you experience an accelerated heart rate, while taking the Escitalopram in the Lexamil, you should speak to your doctor, as that could be due to a dangerous reaction to the medication, and you might need to try something else. Typical side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Alcohol and Gabapentin

Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day.

gabapentin dot physical

I am trying to find out if gabapentin is ok to be in the system (body) of a truck driver. Legal presciption from a doctor. ## Can a truck driver pass a DOT physical if he takes gabapentin? ## Hello, Jeanie! How are you? I'm sorry, but from what I've found the answer is no. There is an automatic disqualification for anyone taking any type of antiseizure medication. This is due to the fact that the person either has epilepsy, or if they are taking it for nerve pain or mood disorders, the medication could put them at risk of a seizure, if they miss a dose or are late taking it. Having a seizure while driving could be very dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects to this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Is there a...
