Small White Round Pill With B on one side and 20 on the other

This pill was found in my backyard after a party... It has no scoring on it and is round and smooth... ## The pill is Allopurinol. The primary use of allopurinol is to treat hyperuricemia (excess uric acid in blood plasma) and its complications. Allopurinol does not alleviate acute attacks of gout, but is useful in chronic gout to prevent future attacks. If someone is partying with this pill, they will be disappointed for sure. ## Hi I have some tablets that are white and round small they have mp60 on one side and nothing on the other . The packet has only one word metweat

The white one with the AW marking is manufactured by Accord Healthcare and they list it as containing 100mgs of Allopurinol, it is most commonly used to treat gout. The one with the M R11 marking is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 1mgs of Risperidone, which is used to treat various mental health issues. The FDA lists the side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, somnolence, and weight gain. Are these medications he usually takes?

losartin and toe pain

I have pain in my toes. Could this be from losartin? I was taking losartin 50/12.5 htzc now am taking losartin with potassium 25 mg ## Hello, Phyllis! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. It might be, if you're developing gout, or are low in metabolites from dehydration, so it would be best to have it checked out by your doctor to be sure. You may need a dosage adjustment, or you may need to switch to a completely different medication. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. Why was the medication changed?

grapefruit essential oil and colchicine reactivity
2 Replies RSS
I know the fruit and juice can cause problems but I'm curious about the essential oil. I use an all natural body cream that has grapefruit essential oil in it. Should I stop using it? ## Hello, Anissa! How are you? No, that shouldn't affect your medication. It is the way the grapefruit juice acts on various digestive enzymes and liver enzymes that causes reduced efficacy of some medications. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Colchicine as possibly including nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain and stomach cramping. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the prompt reply. Truly. It's appreciated.
