Migraine / Tension Headache Overview

A migraine is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe.[1] Typically, the headaches affect one half of the head, are pulsating in nature, and last from two to 72 hours.[1] Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, or smell.[2] The pain is generally made worse by physical activity.[12] Up to one-third of people have an aura: typically a sh...

Alvogen round blue pill A247

I would like to see an image of the pill by Alvogen marked A 247. And feedback on how it worked please. ## Hi Sue - The round blue pills from Alvogen inscribed with A 247 contain Butalbital 50 mg, Acetaminophen 325 mg and Caffeine 40 mg (NDC 47781-625) - generic for Fioricet. You can see an image from the manufacturer at If anyone has previously taken this please share your feedback in this thread. ## #SUE ~ I've had CHRONIC so for 35+ years. Back in the mid '80's thru the 90's, I took both FIORINAL + CODEINE (which has ASPIRIN in it) BEFORE my ULCERS & FIORICET + CODEINE (which has TYLENOL in it) AFTER I started getting ULCERS. IF you're getting EPISODIC MIGRAINES, like the type that my mother-in-law had (you get them here & there; once in awhile) those med...

Buprenorphine and Naloxone rash

I get 2 strips of Buprenorphine/Naloxone daily. 8mg. Been on about 2 yrs. Anyone else get a rash from these? What is in these that would cause this? Was on pain management for years but that became a nightmare and way too much work with all new laws. I was on for 30 plus yrs. Subs are much easier to get a monthly script for. What's up with the 2 yr rash? I drink 8 or 9 waters a day. I'm not dehydrated. Not a sub fan at all but they do the job. Anyone else get a constant rash from the strips? Don't bother saying I could stop them. Had 6 yrs sober, plus the subs keep me out of prison. I tried every lotion cream available. I have to grease my hands every night and wear gloves to bed as my hands cracked so bad. So, back to the rash. Any info please? Thanx. ## What kind of rash a...

Is fioricet west ward 787 available anywhere?

I had read that West Ward fioricet was off the market. This medicine helped so much with my headaches. Can you please tell me if the West Ward fioricet will be available soon? ## Hi tam213, According to the drug's main webpage, Fioricet products containing 325 mgs of acetaminophen have in-fact been discontinued. New formulations of Fioricet & Fioricet w/ Codeine reportedly contain 300 mgs of acetaminophen per capsule to meet the FDA's safety guidelines surrounding acetaminophen dosing limitations. I'm not sure when it's supposed to be back on the shelves, if it's not already. But I would suggest contacting West-Ward Pharmaceuticals directly for additional details at: Recall Inquiries: [email protected] Customer Service Inquiries: [email protected]

generic fioricet LCI 1695

Pls tell me what company makes this generic fioricet with LCI 1695 and light blue in color. Is it Lannett Co.? Are they a good generic company? Watson white tabs do NOT work for me. Is this blue pill good for HA? ## Hi Doggielover, Just to confirm, the manufacturer of that generic Fiorcet is Lannett Company, Inc.. This medication is commonly used in the treatment of headache, but is also regarded as an analgesic combination. As to the company's reputation on generics, I honestly haven't heard much about them. But I believe this is really something that can turn out to be very different for each individual going through their own personal experience with the medication. So you may just to have give it a trial run and see how it works out for you. You can learn more about this dru...

Does anyone take Lannett Fioricet? I'm used to Mikart brand.

I'd get a second opinion or maybe a third too before switching manufacturers of Fioricet. Suicide is huge with these drugs and there is no way to figure out who is going to be affected. It also changes the brain. It could potentially cause them lifelong difficulty. No one will tell you the awful adverse effects of coming off them. I would check for a vitamin and mineral deficiency, gut bacterial imbalance, possible brain injury and most importantly look at the environment and the people around you. Please exhaust all other possible causes before starting this drug meant for adult brains. It could be an infection like strep or inflammation from an immune system that won't shut down. You need to know big pharma is pushing doctors to prescribe off-label for the sole purpose of incr...

Headache Relief

I used to have a really bad headache that lasted the whole day. Sometimes it hurt so much that I started beating my head, but when i concentrate on a specific thing I'll feel relaxed. Even a small harsh voice would irritate me to such an extent that I cry out! HELP ME! ## I'm seeking relief for a chronic daily headache. After 35 years and numerous treatments, I wonder if there is a cure (short of a labodomy) for this condition that takes over your life. We have medication that is a little help but does not eliminate the headache that can easily turn into a migraine. Reply to: [email protected] {edited for privacy} ## I am 61...sadly, headaches in the front bones of my face since I was really a young child. Namely, right inside upper orbital bone. After WAY too much aspirin as a child, t...

dosage for mavidol tr

I have Mavidol TR ampoules that my doctor I saw in Mexico gave me for migraine. He showed me how to inj. but I lost the paper that told me how much to use. These are 10 mg - 25 mg/ml. What would the dosage be for an adult 200lbs? Thank you! ## Mavidol contains the active ingredient Ketorolac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. There is more information on this medication on MedlinePlus. The dosage, however, can vary and should be decided by a doctor. It can also be contraindicated with some other medications, and medical conditions. Have you tried consulting your regular doctor? Are you on any other medications?

Large round white pills from mexico with Raam on one side

I found large round white pills with Raam on one side and scored on the other side. Please help me identify this pill. I know it came from Mexico. Found it in my daughter's suitcase. ## These are Sumatrapitan, used to treat migraines. I purchased a bottle of them in Mexico as well. Work great. ## Just got back from Ensenada on a cruise. I purchased what said on the box 2mg alprazolam. They are round and white pills that say RAAM on one side and nothing on the back. No slit to cut in half or in fourths. I’m used to taking .5mg-1mg for anxiety so I just took a piece when I felt a panic attack coming along. Definitely calmed me down and I eventually went to sleep. However, I tried searching for these online to make sure they were Xanax and haven’t found one thread or pictur...

Fiorinal update - not controlled, capsules only, 300 tylenol

Here's some definitive info from Actavis who bought out Watson. fioricet.com Briefly: New formulation is out because of FDA requirements (reduces Tylenol from 325 to 300). No change to Butalbital or caffeine mg's Tablets are discontinued. Only capsules are available. The formulation without Codeine is NOT a schedule III drug (Actavis received an FDA exemption) If your doc writes for tabs you may want to discuss having him alter the scrip so that it doesn't get bounced. The good news is that it looks like the Brand Name will still be available. I had GREAT luck with West Ward for over 30 years. The white tabs by Qualitest suck so I'm going to pay the extra and go for the Brand to see how well it works. Good luck everyone. ## Has anyone ever heard of the mfg, of butalbital...
