Librax cost at CVS

I was prescribed Librax by my Gastrointeroligist for stomach pain. When I went to CVS they told me my insurance United Health Care would not pay for it. They said the cost was $3,759.00 for 60 pills. Outrageous!! I am 85 years old and cannot afford this. ## That is outrageous indeed! Are you able to get a generic version of this drug filled? Brands tend to be much more expensive. 5mg/2.5mg Chlordiazepoxide / Clidinium (60 capsules) Check this tool from GoodRx to see if any pharmacies near you will honor the discount, it seems to be substantial: Hope this helps!

Expired Hyoscyamine prescription, is it safe?

I Have Severe Ulcer Pain And have Taken Hyoscyamine Sublingual Tabs With Good Results. I have meds But The Prescription Is Expired From 2007. Is It Safe To Take Now? ## According to Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date.

Bentyl may be interacting with my Hydrochlorothiazide

Hi I have been told I have ibs by a doctor recently and pre-hypertention. I wanted to know if it is normal to have some what blurred vision, extreme sleepiness and weakness from taking the Bentyl and Hydro, it's hard to distinguished which pill is causing the symptoms but I feel it may be intensifying the symptoms since I am taking 2 pills that could cause the same side effects plus I have seasonal allergies. ## Hi!

When I first started taking dicyclomine, yes, I got VERY tired &/or sleepy as a side effect. It even affected by short-term memory to a small degree!

Symax-SR0.375MG

I was wondering if this medication is used for the treatment of urinary track infection? And is it ok to take this medication if the expiration date is past. The expiration date was 2/16/05. Would this be safe to take and what would be the dangers of taking an expired Rx? ## yes you can take the med, the expiration date just indicates that the medication is loosing its potency. but alway contact your pc ## Symax is listed as containing Hyoscyamine, which is used to treat gastrointestinal problems, by slowing the action of the GI tract. It will not do anything to treat a bacterial infection, such as a UTI. Once expired, medications also tend to lose potency, and may not work as well as they did, when new, so it is best to dispose of them, and see your doctor. Typical side effects of Syma...

How Long Will Dicyclomine Hcl Remain Usable Past Expiration Date

how long will dicyclomine hcl remaine usable past expiration date ## Once a medication has expired, it is best to just dispose of it properly. There is no information available to let you know how long it still remains viable and effective past its expiration. The available data for when it expires is just derived from data that only shows the maximum time range for which effectiveness can be guaranteed in regular storage conditions. They are not required to do further testing beyond that and, since they want to see more of any given medication, it wouldn't actually make sense for them to do so. I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer for you. However, once it is expired, it starts to lose effectiveness and should be replaced with new product. Are there any other questio...

Viberzi false positive drug test help

I take viberzi 100 mg twice a day for IBS-D and a long list of other medications. I take opioid pain medications which are Opana ER and Oxycodone/APAP which is prescribed by a pain management doctor. When he ran a urine drug screen it showed that I had Fentanyl in my system but it did not show Opana ER in my system. I have never in my life been prescribed or used Fentynal so there is no possible way that this drug screen is accurate. I didn't take my Opana ER the day of my drug screen / my pain management doctor appointment but I took it the night before at 10:00 pm and my doctor appointment was at 10:15 am; but it wasn't until around 11:30 am when I urinated into the cup. The Opana ER is a around the clock pain medication which you take a tablet every 12 hours and I been taking...
