When express scripts removed Advair from their formulary in 2014, my doctor put me on Symbicoet. I developed horrible muscle spasms in my legs.

That is listed by the FDA as a possible side effect of Symbicort, it's resulted in some people having to stop using it, because they were so severe.

White capsule shape Pill With P in a Circle

I have two pills capsule shaped with a line on one side and a P in a circle on the other they are white ## Let P in a circle on a white oblong shaped table, there is just a line on the other side, does anyone know what this is? ## Hi Craig, The closest match I've been able to is a round yellow pill with a P inside a circle (the circle is about the same circumference as the pill itself) and then a score line on the back. One source tells me that the pill I just described is Primatene (Ephedrine- 12.5 mg + Guaifenesin- 200 mg). However, there is another "P in circle logo" that I found an image of, and apparently it's the Pharmascience Canada logo. With the imprint being so vague it's hard to know for certain what the pill is... Where did you find it? Has anyone else se...

Who gave me Gastrocrom in plastic vial

Found in overpacked purse. I have numerous autoimmune diseases,IBD, allergies, MCS, viruses, psoriasis. I have recently been to cataract surgery, GI doc, PCP, dermatologist. Which one may have given me the gastrocrom and how do I use it? ## I noticed barely legible print on the vial. It expired in 2001. I also researched gastrochrome and found it used for IBS as an anti inflammatory before NSAIDS were found more useful for IBS. I am allergic to all NSAIDS. I have very high inflammation markers. My thanks to all who read my post. ## It was probably your GI doctor that gave you the Gastrochrom. I was given it for collagenous collitis and mastocytosis of the colon.
