Clorixan Information

I purchased clorixan 200 ml in Mexico for cold sores. I take one pill as soon as I feel a sore developing. It has worked so well that I would like to keep them on hand. What exactly is clorixan? ## Clorixan contains Acyclovir, it is an antiviral that is commonly used to treat most herpes simplex viruses, both genital, and oral, which is why it works so well. I take it myself, twice a day, every day, as a preventative, because one of the medications I am on can cause horrible cold sore outbreaks, which landed me in the ER several times, with several swelling in and around my mouth. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, diarrhea, taste disturbance and drowsiness. It is available in the U.S. by prescription, so you might wan...

xarelto and tamiflu

I've been on xarelto for a year because of heart afib. Because of the flu I've been given tamiflu. Checking online shows a study where there were many bad interactions because of this combination. Is this really the case? ## I am in the same boat today. Did you ever get a response to your question? Thanks! ## Hi Jim & Sally, While I personally haven't come across the types of reviews concerning bad drug interactions between Xarelto and Tamiflu, I did look up the drug combination at the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool) to see what all the fuss is about. However, no drug interactions or contraindications were listed. Although this does not necessarily mean that no interactions exist, it is my understanding the two are generally regard...

Name that med

Quite a few years ago, when I was in the army, I came down with a very bad case of the flu. I went to the med bay and they gave me a packet of meds with 6 doses and told me to take one every 4 hours. 24 hours later I was finished with the pack and whatever kind of meds I had taken had burned the flu right out of my system. At first I thought it was a Z Pack but I have since learned that Z Packs don't work on cold or flu. Can anybody tell me or give me an idea as to what kind of medicine I was given? ## Hello, Gabriel! How are you? It was likely an antiviral, since the flu is caused by a virus, so some of them used to be prescribed to help knock it out of someone's system. However, taking them too frequently for too long, such as some med students would do, could result in overdo...

Anyone heard of dynamiclear?

Has anyone heard about the product called Dynamiclear? It claims to be able to treat cold sores without using antiviral medications. ## I've tried it and found it to be pretty good. It stings like hell when you first put it on and sometimes it takes a few goes to have the full effect. ## Hello, Glenda! How are you? The most important thing to remember here is that cold sores are caused by a virus, so most products that don't use any type of antiviral won't have much effect. Additionally, as explained by the NIH, antivirals can help prevent them, which is much better than experiencing a flare and trying to get it to heal up faster. The only ingredient in Dynamiclear that I see listed that's been shown to help, at all, is Lysine, it has been shown to help shorten the durat...

Ribavirin reaction

I took peginterferon shots once a week with 6 ribavirin tablets a day. I had skin reactions and scatched all the hair off my body in my sleep from my neck down. I may soon go back on the treatment since they have a second shot (don't know name) and they think I may have a chance. Is there anything to counter the ribavirin reaction and rash? ## Have you discussed it with your doctor? You may be able to use an antihistamine to help prevent it from happening, again, but only your doctor can help you decide if it's safe for you to use one. ## I did the 48 week course of Interferon & Ribavirin. At the end of it my Hep 'C' was gone; six months later it was back. I too am about to start the same course again but with an added new drug, one of a possible two. They're sti...

The very best way to detox your system of any drug is lemon water at room temperature. Prob for 2-3 days.

Relenza for influenza

Does anyone have experience using Relenza to treat or prevent the flu? ## Hello, Ldkat! How are you? I've never taken it, I usually opt for the flu shot each year, but I can tell you more about it. It is an antiviral medication and if taken, before you actually have flu symptoms, it can sometimes prevent it entirely. Otherwise, if taken after you have it, it helps prevent the virus from replicating in your body, which can lessen the symptoms, their severity and the duration of the the flu. The most common side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include diarrhea. nausea, headache, dizziness and cough. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Compare cti 111 and N940

I had been taking a blue capsule N940. My new pharmacy uses cti 111. The newcapsulesare not as effective as the N 940 in terms of ameliorating symptoms. I got a refill for the cti 111 at a different pharm, thinking maybe their drugs were older at the first one. I've taken a few of the N 940's that are now years old and they are still better at diminishing symptoms than the ctis. What's the story? ## Hello, Suzy! How are you? There can be some slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another. However, since this an antiviral, the difference shouldn't be that significant. Have you consulted your doctor about the problem? Learn more Aciclovir details here.

expiration date of antiviral cream

Can I use the antiviral cream the lab made up for me for shingles on the corner of my mouth still? This was iin May. I still have half a container of the cream. The expiration date is 6/23/13. It worked really fast last time i broke out. Thank you! ## Hello, Sandra! How are you doing? No, the cream should really be disposed of and you should contact your doctor for a new prescription. Creams, liquids, ointments and the like tend to degrade very fast and not only can they lose efficacy, but they can also go rancid. Thus, it's just not a good idea to use one that's expired. Is there anything else I can help with?

Does Tamiflu cause a posative for thc

Would tamiflu 75 mg cause a posative for THC .? ## I wouldnt think so,but idk lol. where did you get that idea? ## @Jimmy, I have to agree with Derk, as I could not locate any specific details or reviews stating that this drug is known for causing a false positive for THC. Did you have any cannabis within the past 90 days prior to your test? If so, a hair test may be able to detect it. I'd also question whether or not you had any other types of medications recently, as there are some other drugs out there that could potentially bring about a false positive for it. I hope this info helps!
