I am paying 40.00 dollars. can this medication be sent to me by mail. ## Hello, Candy! How are you? This website does not manufacture, compound, nor ship any mediations or products.

Oblong bluegreen MRK 951 tablet

I've found two posts similar to this tablet that was found in my bottle of Levetiracetam (epilepsy medication). It looks nothing like my pills and I have no idea what it is. It's a tablet that's flat and oblong shaped, light blue-green, says MRK on one side and 951 on the other. Can anyone please identify this tablet? ## The only tablet I can find with this marking is egg shaped, it s manufactured by Merck and is a 25mg Cozaar tablet. It contains the active ingredient Losartan, which is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. There is also a white, oval tablet with just the 951 on it. NDC: 00006-0951 Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, hypotension, increased urination, and headache. Have you checked with your phar...

What Is The Best Generic Of Lamictal

I've been taking the generic for Lamictal for about five years. Recently I've been feeling different at about the beginning of the year. I use to take the white ones but now I am taking a generic by Taro. What is the best generic for this drug? I never really payed any attention until I started getting this crazy migraines. If anyone has any insights it would be much appreciated. ## There's really no way to say which is the best, since different people can react differently, so it depends on what works for you. The best idea I can give you is to check with your pharmacy and see who manufactured the ones that you used to take and ask if they can order them back in for you. They usually can and will sometimes do so for their regular customers. Does anyone else have any advice ...

Urbanol and Lexamil

Hi Guys, I've started on Lexamil and Urbanol and noticed a spike in my heart rate. I normally get an average of 100 - 120 and max of 160bpm in my cycling workouts but now see I've jumped to a max 240bpm and average of 190pbm this week. Im 38, 86kg , and rather fit. Please advise if these meds could be the reason? Thank you ## If you experience an accelerated heart rate, while taking the Escitalopram in the Lexamil, you should speak to your doctor, as that could be due to a dangerous reaction to the medication, and you might need to try something else. Typical side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Alcohol and Gabapentin

Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic.

gabapentin dot physical

I am trying to find out if gabapentin is ok to be in the system (body) of a truck driver. Legal presciption from a doctor. ## Can a truck driver pass a DOT physical if he takes gabapentin? ## Hello, Jeanie! How are you? I'm sorry, but from what I've found the answer is no. There is an automatic disqualification for anyone taking any type of antiseizure medication. This is due to the fact that the person either has epilepsy, or if they are taking it for nerve pain or mood disorders, the medication could put them at risk of a seizure, if they miss a dose or are late taking it. Having a seizure while driving could be very dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects to this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Is there a...

Lamictal Weight Loss

Hi. I started lamotrigine last Aug and lost my appetite in October. I have had significant weight loss. I don't want to go off of it, because it has been incredibly helpful mood wise. Has anyone experienced this and switched to another med as a solution? If so, what was that medication and how did you find the transition and the efficacy of the new drug?

Gabapentin for Restless Leg Syndrome

I was just given a prescription for gabapentin 300mg 90 minutes before bedtime. Can increase 300mg every night to a max of 1200. This increase is weekly. I have symptoms of restless leg syndrome but my problem is much more than RLS. I have heavy legs and problems with balance. I was on Requip with some help to the symptoms but developed compulsive gambling problem. Is anyone else in a similar situation or have any advice for me as to what to expect. I have had this problem for over 5 years. It started with just kinda stubbing your toe as I walked and progressed to turing to walk a certain direction and my upper body moved but my legs did not follow. Things like stepping up on a curb became something to think about and prepare for before I attempted it. My legs and ankles tire easily. Th...

over the counter substitute for gabapentin

I am presently taking gabapentin and if I forget 1 tablet it is awful. I can't sleep and my legs ache and the next morning because of the lack of sleep I can not function. I am on this medicine for back pain and I do believe it helps.. I would like to get off this drug and maybe try something natural but not sure what is in this. I have read several horror stories that have concerned me on the withdrawal from this drug. Just looking for something that may be a natural substitute. Thank you so much.. By the way I am 68 years old and take 600 mg at bedtime.. ## Hello, Eloise! How are you? Unfortunately, there is no over the counter equivalent. Rather than missing tablets, if you have a smart phone, there are quite a few reminder apps available for free that you can set to go off, so t...
