Disappearance of 12mg Chlor-Trimeton.... again

Question! Where can I find Chlor-Trimeton 12hr 12mg allergy pills? (near San Diego, CA) It seems that whenever a new allergy medicine comes on the market (Claritin, Zyrtec), CT disappears for a year or so. Available in Canada as Chlor-Tripolon but only for a short while as everyone in the US starts buying it on-line when CT disappears. This time, I haven't noticed any new product roll-out. Question 2- WHY does it disappear? I've been taking it regularly for over 50 years and only recently (last few years) has it been doing this disappearing act. ## I second Phils question. Chlor-Trimeton 12hr is very good for me. Why does it keep disappearing here in Michigan too! ## I just noticed Allegra became OTC(over the counter). Chlor-Trimeton always disappears when a new allergy product ...

Ebast 20mg for allergies

I am suffering from allergies. I have consulted several doctors and one doctor prescribed Ebast 20mg. He advised me not to use it often. I still have allergy symptoms. Any suggestions for allergy relief? ## By its nature and allergy can't be cured. However, an Allergist or Immunologist may be able to help you improve your immunity to whatever substances you're allergic to, so your body no longer overreacts. Have you consulted a specialist about it? ## Ebastine 20 mg is an allergy medication which has a lower potential for causing drowsiness. Unsure why it's not working, but there are other antihistamines that your doctor may prescribe for you. Have you been tested to see exactly what is causing your allergy symptoms?

Bioflu and Decolgen

I have had a cold and cough for the past week so I decided to take both decolgen and bioflu at the same time, but just once and suddenly realized I was a week pregnant... Is it really that bad? ## Hi, i bought the same product on a drugstore today and they told me that taking both drugs at the same time may cause to liver cancer ## Hello Mars, Congratulations! Aaccording to the NIH neither Bioflu nor Decolgen has no observed adverse effects of Paracetamol (Decolgen Forte/Decolgen No-Drowse) on the fetus in humans. This may sound confusing at first but what it more or less means that there isn't enough data currently supporting the fact that this drug harms a fetus. If you are still within the first month of your pregnancy it is unlikely that you have done any substantial damage, how...

American Equivalent Drug Numbers: Z-Pak and Pseudoephedrine

I was prescribed a Z-Pak (Azithromycin, 250 mg) and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride (60 mg) on a cruise and now my insurance company wants the American equivalent drug numbers for them. ## I think you are talking about the NDC number. It is a seven digit number - and the easiest is to do a search on internet of the medication and dosage - ie: Zithromycin 250 mgm and you should get all sorts of results. ## Yes, if they want the National Drug Code number for them, it is going to vary depending on the manufacturer, dosage, and etc. You can learn more about NDC numbers here from the FDA, and access a directory. Can you provide any further details on the medications you were prescribed, such as markings on them? Manufacturers names, or etc.? The FDA lists the typical side effects of these med...

co aleva ebastine betamethasone okay for pregnant women?

I am still not sure if i am pregnant and have yet to check with a home kit. Now my allergic rhinitis is triggered by the weather my doctor gave me co-aleva however i fort to ask if it is pregnancy-friendly. Please advise. ## My wife is pregnant,she can't take a Co. Aleva.for her maintance of asthma. ## No, the U.S. FDA places the Betamethasone in Co-Aleva as being in pregnancy category C, which means it is a drug that has been suspected of causing fetal harm. However, there are some cases where it can be beneficial for an underdeveloped fetus, so it should be taken if your doctor deems it necessary. Otherwise, if a woman is pregnant, it would be best to consult their doctor about taking an alternative medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

Lee's save the baby. Where can I find it?

The is in a clear bottle with a red screw on cap. The liquid is yellow in color It has oil in it that separates and goes to the top when bottle sits. 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. The reason it is no longer available is that it contained Camphor, yes, even in the liquid that was taken internally and the FDA has recognized this as being unsafe. Camphor is now only approved to be used topically. As to the other ingredients, I am sorry, I have been unable to discover that. Does anyone else know anything about this?...

Bioflu and Co-amoxiclav

Is it ok to take both bioflu and co-amoxiclav to treat my colds and cough? Thank you. ## The Co-Amoxiclav will not do anything to treat a cold, or cough. This medication can only treat a bacterial infection, the NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. However, colds and flu are caused by viral infections, so an antibiotic will not help. Did you doctor tell you take them? ## Oh ok. Thanks Verwon. What would be the most effective type of meds I should take for a cough, cold, or flu that are taking a longer time to be cured? And prevent it from coming back as well? ## Is it safe to take bioflu for the fever and co amoxiclav? ## Can I take bioflu and cotrimoxazole or bioflu and co amoxiclav?

small white pill . on one side it says 96z underneath is no 99.no print on other side. ## I think you might have been looking at the tablet upside down and the marking may actually be GG 296, due to the way it is printed, it is often misread. The tablet is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, and they list it as containing 10mgs of Loratadine, which is an antihistamine that is used to treat allergies. It is available over the counter, and by prescription. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and dry mouth. Can you double check the marking and post back? Thanks! ## What us a ival tablet with 96z on one side anc c/p on the other?
