Corex cough syrup addiction

My boyfriend is addicted to corex. He's 24 years old and he has been taking corex for the last two years. He started taking corex for depression. He is a medical student (b.a.m.s).

I'm very sorry about the problem your boyfriend is having. One of the ingredients in Corex is Codeine, which is a narcotic, so it does have the potential to be habit forming.

To use run the bottle under warm water and shake to mix. Applythe warm liquid tothe child's chest and under nose to relieve symptoms of croupe. Instead of placing a drop under the nose you can also place it on a pillowcase or sheet. ## It was made by the Lee's company and yes, it is patent protected.

Drixoral for dust allergies

Hello, I am 53 years old. I started taking prescription Antihistamine in the 3rd. grade. At first I took Teldron spansules. This was discontinued and I've been taking Drixoral ever since. I am HIGHLY allergic to DUST and have tried other pills but nothing helps like the Drixoral. I only take it as needed, but recently found I can't find it. If I don't have it I will go into an asthma attach? Anyone know where I can get Drixoral? ## I have gotten it filled in Canadian pharmacies. Shipping not that bad. Schering Plough, the maker, claims it will not be available in 2009 due to production facility move. ## What other medications have you tried to help with your allergy symptoms?

Apetito tablets can be used by man

Can a man use apetito and if so, what are the side effects? ## For what reason is this supplement used? ## Can apetito be used by man if they want to gain weight? ## Appetite-increasing medications such as Appetito (cyproheptadine) are not gender oriented and can be taken by a man or woman. Please note however that cyproheptadine is an antihistamine used primarily for allergy relief and weight gain/appetite increases are merely a possible side effect; therefore this should not be relied upon as a sole means of gaining weight. Only a proper dietary regimen, adjusting one's eating habits and/or weight training are effective long-term solutions for healthy weight management. I would encourage others who may be seeking to use cyproheptadine to also consult a qualified nutritionist who c...

pill es 255

muscle relaxer ## Is that the exact marking on the tablet? What is the shape and color? I tried playing around with the imprint, but still can't find anything close to this. Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? ## I located a match to pills reading 255 on them. One has M 255 on it, it's Albuterol 2 mg.

Oval White Pill With Y one one side

I have discovered some white pills in my elderly mother's possession. They are small - approximately 6mm in length. They are smooth on boths sides with a Y on one side.

They were purchased in South Africa. ## Based on your description the closest match I could find is a white oval pill marked with two Y's on one side and blank w/ a score line on the other. This particular pill is identified as Xyzal (levocetirizine) 5 mg; used to treat allergies.

Will this work to stop vaginal dryness and itching and what are the side effects? ## Did your doctor prescribe this? This is a topical steroid cream, it is not normally meant to be used internally, such as placing into the vagina.

Cyproheptadine For Weight Gain

Is Periactin safe to increase weight? Is that effect permanent weight gain or only as long as i take it? ## Periactin, which contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine, normally used to treat allergies. And, just like any medication, it does have risks and side effects, so no, just using it in attempt to gain weight is not considered safe. It can cause an increased appetite in some people, which sometimes causes them to gain some weight, however, it is usually not significant and the effects don't continue, when someone stops the medication. In addition, any method of gaining weight artificially, that doesn't involve a healthy diet and exercise can have severe detrimental effects on your health. Are there any other questions? ## Thanks for the info Verwon....

How long can I take co-aleva since I have psoriasis?

How long can I take co-aleva since i have psoriasis? When i stopped after taking it for 14 days i had a very bad flare up, because I still eat foods that I'm not allowed to like foods with Gluten and Dairy. I think what's happening to me is what we called "withdrawal"? Can I try to take it again just for 7 days and stop eating foods that's not allowed to see if it will clear up? ## If you stop a medication that you are taking for a certain condition, and the condition flares up, again, that would be called a rebound effect. If you continue to eat foods that you aren't supposed to, then the flare may not even be related to stopping the medication, or it could be a combination of both. Co-Aleva contains Betamethasone, which is a corticosteroid. The FDA lists its ty...
