yellow pill apo 500

how long does it take to work and can you take Advil with it ? ## Before I can answer this, I need to know if the APO and 500 are on the same side of the tablet or opposites? Also what country is it from? ## Do any other letters appear on the inscription or opposite side of the pill such as MET, CIP, GAB ?? If NOT ... I have searched around and so far the closest pill which I have found to resemble your description is: " Each yellow, capsule-shaped, biconvex tablet, scored and identified 'APO 500' on one side, contains naproxen 500 mg " [1] So my best guess at this point is that it is called Apo-naproxen from Canada, containing, of course, Naproxen 500 mg as stated above. If that sounds like what you have then you should NOT take Advil with it, as Advil (Ibuprofen) is an...

red pill with only 51 imprint

I found an oblong pill with the imprint 51 on it. It's kind of like the marroonish color of an advil..I have done a Google search and can't seem to find any info. If anyone knows what this pill could be please let me know. Thank you. ## I've had several people ask about this tablet and I still can't find anything definitive on it. Thus, I am wondering if it may be something that is available over the counter, such medications are usually not listed in the FDA or NIH databases. The closest I've been able to find, so far, has P 51 on it and is a red gel cap that contains Decussate, which is used as a laxative and stool softener. It's typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, bloating, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Does anyone else recognize this pill? ...

How long after taking an advil can i take methylprednisolone?

I took an advil for a headache at 2pm and ate dinner but I am not sure if I should take the methylprednisolone (6 pills) or wait 24 hours for the advil to leave my system? ## They are not in the same medication class, but what has your prescriber advised? Have you been told not to combine them? In many cases, they are taken together, since the Methylprednisolone may cause headaches as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, acne, mood changes, and weight changes. It would be best to follow your doctor's instructions. Is there something else I could help with?

amox tr k clv 875 125mg and Advil Cold & Sinus medication together?

I am on my first day of amox tr k clv 875-125 mg for a ten day course to treat a cold. The runny nose and coughing is making it hard to sleep and get the needed rest. Can I take Advil Cold and Sinus medication while taking Amox Tr K CLV 875-125 mg? Thanks. ## Hello, Jay! How are you feeling? Sorry that you're sick. However, this is an antibiotic and will do nothing to treat a cold. Antibiotics are only effective against bacteria and a cold is caused by a virus. And actually, taking it when it is not appropriate and needed could cause you to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria. Did your doctor prescribe it? And no, the antibiotic shouldn't be taken with the Ibuprofen in the Advil Cold & Sinus, because they can both increase the available levels of the other in your body, wh...

can I give advil pm to my 11 year old?

I would like to give my 11 year old daughter an Advil PM 200 mg so she can sleep. ## Can I give my 10 year old a Advil pm cause her head been hurting since like 2 ## In young children, it is best not to give them any medication, without their pediatrician's approval.

I was normally given the yellow v 3601-10/325pill & at CVS yesterday they gave me a white oblong pill with # M367 on the front also 10/325 in strength .

Now that CVS is giving me the white oblong M367. What can I do about it??? They say yellow pill will be out of stock til later.

knee joint pain meds

I was in an an auto accident 2 yrs ago and both knees made impact with dash. At first not much pain but now pain is chronic because of loss of cartlidge.Should I be taking something to help rebuild the cartlidge? And as the pain goes after working all day it's so bad I dont sleep at night and have tried Alieve, Advil, etc. but it wont help. Any advice? ## Unfortunately nothing rebuilds cartilage that the regular person can afford. Stem cell therapy is being experimented with. I used hyaluronic acid shots in my knee for years before I got it replaced. It is awesome. Don't use cortisone shots. Cortisone shots tend to deteriorate the remainder of the joint space. Orthovisc is a series of 3 inj's. Expensive but what a relief!!! ## Hello Fisherguy I am in the same situation no ca...

advil for headache with xarelto

I've had a migraine for almost 2 days. Past issues with these headaches are typically only resolved by taking ibuprofen. Problem is I am taking xarelto and I was told to only take Tylenol if I need pain relief. I have been taking Tylenol and it is not helping one bit. I thought my doctor said "occasionally" no more than 600mg of Advil would be okay, but I can't seem to reach anyone on the weekend. Please help! ## Hi Kyle, According to The University of Maryland Medical Center drug interaction tool, there is a high interaction potential between Advil and Xarelto. They go on to note that using an anticoagulant with a NSAID is generally not recommended, but because it may be needed in certain cases, you and your doctor should work together to find an appropriate dosing regi...

I constantly end up with a tropical viral infection in my one eye only. Please advise what I can use to clear it and how I can prevent getting it again?

Occasional excruciating back pain...

What is the strongest OTC medication that will alleviate excruciating pain in my back and shoulders in a timely manner? Your quickest response to my message will be greatly appreciated! Happy and safe Holidays to ALL! ## The strongest medications available over the counter would be nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, such as Advil and Aleve. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. However, before taking anything, you should have this checked in order to figure what's causing the pain and what your doctor advises you to take for it. Are you on any prescription medications? Do you have any other medical conditions?

Human resource getting involved

I called a coworker, who happens to be a nurse also, from my house (she was at her house) and asked her some questions about pain meds. My husbands had been misplaced during our move and he was having an awful time. He's diabetic, has heart issues, has neuropathy and a few other issues. I've overheard her telling others about meds she has at home if they needed them (not necessarily narcotics). I asked if she had anything or knew what he could take like 4 Advil then and hour later 4 Tylenol. I assumed because she knows I'm not a pill popper that she was aware I wasn't asking for narcotics. I have learned that she called HR on me and said I was asking for pain meds (in a way I was). I did ask for alternate methods that he could take due to his issues but not wanting her t...
