Rem Cough Syrup

Info on a cough syrup called REM.It was manufactured, I believe by Maryland Pharmaceutical around the 1940's. I think it had a blue bottle with a orange circle with the name REM printed on it ## I'm sorry, but I can't find any information on this, which really isn't very surprising for that old of a product. There were also many differences back then for what were considered pharmaceutical products. Does anyone have information on this? ## my mother use to give to to us in the early 60's. ## I used it in the 1980s and it worked well. I don't tolerate the chemical ones. I remember REM had ipecac, lobelia, squills and other things...I just remember those because ipecac was used as an emetic and when I looked up lobelia and squills they were listed in an herbal book...

Bendectin and birth defects

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A good res...

Started taking Hydrochlorothiazide awhile ago. Now I have a rash and have no idea why. Looking to see if this is the cause? ## How long have you been taking Hydrochlorothiazide?

If you've been on it longer than that, then the rash may not be related to the medication.

Yellow round pill with DRA on one side

The pill has DRA I think, but the other side has been rubbed off. ## Hello, Angie! How are you? The DRA marking is used on over the counter Dramamine products, but without anything on the opposite side. It contains the active ingredient Dimenhydrinate and is used to prevent motion sickness and vertigo. Learn more Dramamine details here.
