capsule N020 white

Found this pill in my nephews pocket but cant find it any where online. It. Is a white capsule with "N020" on it and nothing else and it it is not the anti-diarrhea pill ## Allopurinol made by NorthStar Rx bears the same color & imprint "N020", except that their pill is round and not a capsule. However, drug manufacturers have been known to make alterations to their products without any prior notice to the public/patients. For this reason alone, I think it would still be a good idea to contact NorthStar Rx directly, just to ensure that you've covered all angles. NOTE: Allopurinol is used to treat gout and kidney stones. Have you spoke with your nephew yet to help shed any light on the subject? Whether he's telling the truth or not, at least we'd have some...

Proton pump inhibitors

Can someone enlighten me, please? I take the following medicines: Eltroxin, Cardicor, Zartan, Amloc, Puresis, Allopurinol, Plenish K, Ultimag, Estro-pause, Adco-Dol (for migraines. Allergic to everything else, also those supposed to be preventative.) My concern is the Allopurinol. I have read somewhere that it may cause sudden death.

Any information will be greatly appreciated. Also information concerning the negatives of proton pump inhibitors. Thank you ever so much. ## I’m 74 years old and had gout cause by excess Utica acid for 10 years until I read on the internet the “CHERRY REPORT “. I now take...

Rumoquin NF Mexican

Rumoquin N F Diclofenaco sódico 75mg Metocarbanol 200mg Dexametasona .75mg Excipiente cbp 1 tablet By Marcel Laboratories I suffer from gout so when I get an attack I take one, also heard is good for arthritis, and and of course Rheumatic diseases. My doctor said that is a drug cocktail and there is nothing like that in one pill. Take it if necessary, it won't cure any disease, it only kills and relaxes the pain/area affected. It really works ! ## The ingredients are… Diclofenac, which is classified by the FDA as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. Methocarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant and Dexamethasone, which is a steroid class medication. Thus, one shouldn't take it without their doctor's approval, because there are some risks associated with it and it may be...

Allopurinol gluten free?

Is Allopurinol mfg by qualitest gluten free? ## Hi edb, From what I could gather, Allopurinol from Qualitest contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose and sodium starch glycolate. Unfortunately, "sodium starch glycolate" is heavily regarded as a questionable substance for those with a gluten intolerance; since it is derived from starch. So I personally wouldn't recommend taking it without your doctor's prior consensus. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Allopurinol Details I hope this helps! ## I got a new script of Allopurinol 300mg by Accord and need to know if it's gluten free? I have been taking another manufacturer's version for years and had no ...
