Ear Care Overview

The ear is the organ that enables hearing and, in mammals, body balance using the vestibular system. In mammals, the ear is usually described as having three parts—the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear. The outer ear consists of the pinna and the ear canal. Since the outer ear is the only visible portion of the ear in most animals, the word "ear" often refers to the external part alone.[1] The middle ear includes the tympanic cavity and the three ossicles. The ...

med pointe pharm HLC

I went to the Dr.'s 12/6/10. I have an ear infection. He prescribed Vosol. I took the RX to Walmart and the discounted price is $107.72. I can not afford it. Is there any way you can help? Is there another product that is WAY cheper? What home remedies do you suggest? ## What type of ear infection? Vosol is usually used to treat an outer ear infection (swimmer's ear), and if that's what you have then yes, there are other cheaper options available, including generic medications that you can ask your doctor about prescribing. You can learn more about swimmer's ear here on Medline Plus. However, in many cases, swimmer's ear goes away by itself, but waiting can be miserable, since it is painful, and annoying. This doesn't apply to every case, either, some do need to ...

Azithromycin for ear infection

Is Azitromicina the correct antibiotic for an ear infection? ## i had ear discharge . doc told me to have T.infectum and signoflam and and neosporin ointment . please tell me each' s function . and pharmacist gave me ampilox instead of t . infectum saying it is also antibacterial . ## Yes, it is a commonly prescribed antibiotic for treating ear infections. There's a study [1] which points to its effectiveness with even a single dose, and you usually don't have to take it as long as a penicillin antibiotic.

Dr sent me this for my ear. I have tinnitus and meniere's disease. Does this work?? ## I have meniere's disease but haven't had a bout in about a year now THANK GOD!!!! I just recently had ringing in the ears but it went away by end of the day. It goes as no comes once a week. But I believe after I stopped taking Gabapentin 30omg 4 x's a day I stopped getting dizzy.

Amox-Clav for an ongoing ear infection

I have had an ear infection for a few months. It comes and goes. Had one course of antibiotics, but it's back again. I am trying Amox-Clav. I'm an adult male and wondered if the 500-125 is the right choice and if so, how many days should I take it for at 2 pills a day? ## Hello, Nathan! How are you? I'm sorry about your ear infection, they are miserable! As to the antibiotic, you should take the one prescribed by your doctor, for as long as they have instructed you to take it, also make sure you finish the full course of it. The side effects of Amoxicillin with Clavulanic Acid may include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, headache, and non-allergic skin rash. Is this the same antibiotic that you tried last time?

Calvepen Tabs 666mg

Prescribed for a sore throat ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## was prescribed 21 of these and cant remember why, i still have them because i go better without them! ## i am on a prescribed course of calvepen 666mg, one to be taken 4 times a day. i went to the doctor with painfully swollen glands and all over body aches. it seems to be clearing up quite nicely. however, i am experiencing some strong side effects. t...

Not asking, giving some info

Did you know a lot of toothaches and face sweeling is due to your main sinus duct where your cheek bone is, that is filled up with fluid, called sinusitis? Most people don't even know you can get that. Causes teeth to hurt, gums swollen, face swelling. It's always good to see a doctor first so they can put you on the right meds. Even though Cedfinir is one of the medication they will prescribe. But do understand it is not a miracle pill. Give it 4-6 days before you even see any results. Ok well I just wanted to share some info. Have a nice day. ## Hello AlwaysSick, Thank you for this information. Just to expand a little bit upon this, allergies in general can make more than just your teeth and nose swell and ache. Anywhere that your body is exposed to the allergens can become in...

Nitil tablet 5mg usage

My doctor prescribed these small tablets for me when I had a balance problem. I had to hold onto furniture when I got out of bed. Everything around you spins. It apparently has something to do with an inner ear infection. ## Hello Nico, I was unable to find any medication under the name of nitil. This could be either from a typo or it's just a new drug with very little information on it. What I do know is that our ears maintain our equilibrium. The vestibular system works in conjunction with our sight in order to give us a sense of balance and positioning with reference to other objects. Often when people have an ear infection or other ear related problems that affect the vestibular system we experience dizziness and vertigo, sometimes to the point of being completely uncapable of m...

TRP white diamond pill

Trying to identify a white diamond shaped pill about 1/4 inch long, 3/16 inch thick. One side has the marking TRP on it. What can it be, as it doesn't match and of the descriptions that I've seen? ## I double checked this site's NDC database, and I believe I found an over the counter product which matches your description. NDC 17312-043, "Ring Relief" tablets. Looks like a homeopathic formula which is meant to help with ringing in the ears. White, diamond-shaped tablets with the marking TRP. It appears to be available over the counter from places like Amazon. Ingredients: - Allylthiourea - Arnica Montana - Calcium Sulfide - Hypericum Perforatum - Lycopodium Clavatum Spore - Mercurius Solubilis - Salicylic Acid - Silicon Dioxide {affiliate link added}

lactose free drugs

Are there any lactose free cholesterol drugs ## It is very hard to say, since each company that makes them has their own formula of ingredients. ## calcium citrate lactose free ## I am lactose/milk and povidone intolerant. My medications all contain 1 or more of these allergens, Atenolol, Levothyroxine, HCTZ. Taking these with antihistamine (also containing lactose) still triggers migraines daily, for which I take caffeine to counteract. Is there any way I can get allergen free medications. My doctor & pharmacy don't have a clue or don't care to find the answer. I am developing arthritis and dental pain from using these meds. Please help ## I, too, am allergic to lactose (milk) and corn. I just researched and found Levothyroxin made by Sandoz that does not have these ingredi...
