Charlote Arthritis Mexican pain pill

My wife, age 84, had arthroscopic surgery on her knee 15 years ago with little benefit. Lately she has had the rooster shots with no benefit. A few days ago she was in agony and friend gave her "Charlote Arthritis" pills from Mexico. The relief was almost instantaneous. She takes two per day and is pain free. The list ingredients are: oak, white willow, magnesium, chamomile, and one item, about 7 letters, too blurred to read. ## Where or how can I get some. I have taken them for my Lupus symptoms and it is an all day relief of pain that nothing else has been able to provide. I cannot find them anymore since the person who used to get them is no longer available. ## El Centro Super Center, Nuevo Progresso, Tamp, MX Hurry before Trump screws up everything and closes the border. ##...

Relafen and Kidney failure

I was on Vioxx for 4 years, it worked for my knees. Then they pulled it off the market. I was prescribed 1000 mg of Relafen. After a week or so I got severe stomach pain and ultimately went into kidney failure. Is this a common side effect? ## It is listed as being a very rare possible side effect of Relafen, it has happened in less than 0.01% of people that have taken it, according to FDA reports. REF: MedLine Plus Nabumetone Other side effects may include nausea, headache, stomach irritation, and liver damage. Is that the only medication you were taking? Have they definitively attributed it to the medication?

Rinvoq for rheumatoid arthritis

Hi ~ Just got the rheumatoid arthritis tap on the shoulder today. Rinvoq seems to be advertised a lot but I’d sure like to hear from folks who actually are using it. Has it been effective for you? What kind of side effects are you noticing? Anybody? ## I have RA and since there’s no cure for it, I can’t take these types of drugs including the DMARDS they have horrific side effects. But I take pain medication as needed. I don’t know of others who take this but I’ll find out. Best of luck. ## Thank you Bella ~ I am going to have to look up what DMARDS are! The ‘language’ of RA I will have to learn. I am liking your approach, of taking as little as possible of the least damaging, side effect laden medication. I’m 67 and take no meds at all at...

Can u tell me what this pill is its got 100 on one side an blank on the other side and is white round pill ## Hello, Eva! How are you? Is the tablet possibly an off-white/pale yellow? If so, it is manufactured by Carlsbad Technology and they list it as containing 100mgs of Meloxicam. The FDA classifies this medication as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. ## I called it white but knew I didn't have caffeine or the other option. They were definitely yellow compared to the white potassium. Meloxicam is the winner. I had it a while back and still have bottle with some in it just don't know why I would have som...

xaralto vs celebrex??

My son was diagnosed with many small blood clots in his lungs, Dr perscribed xaralta but advised him to discontinue his celebrex drug. He is suffering greatly over entire body with stiffness and pain from his head to his toes, What can he take to replace celebrex or can he go back on celebrex or is he getting reaction to the xalareto? ## How long has it been since he started the Xarelto and stopped the Celebrex? His symptoms might be due to a combination of side effects from the Xarelto, and a sudden withdrawal of the Celebrex. Given the blood clots, and the risks associated with them, it would be best that he not taking any medication that isn't approved by his doctor. Xarelto can cause side effects, such as nausea, headache, increased risk of bleeding, fatigue, and joint/muscle ac...

plain white oblong pill no imprint

I just happened to buy a bottle of cheap vitamins. Glucosamine to be exact. It is an oblong pill with no markings or scoring. Hope this helps. ## Hi how big is it? Can you measure it please, Thank you ## Hello Nick, Thank you for sharing the information with the community. Just for your information vitamins and supplements do not have to be marked with an imprint like controlled medications do and thus there are bound to be many brands and types of supplements and vitamins that are white oblong pills with no imprint. In fact I have seen certain brands that use one color and shape for all of their vitamins and I can remember myself thinking, but how do they know if they accidentally switched the pills? Once again, thank you for taking the time out of your day to share this information. #...

Is Meloxicam Gluten Free

I have been taking meloxicam for 1 1/2 weeks and I am experiencing celiac symptoms. I would like to know if meloxicam is gluten free ## Meloxicam is actually a generic medication, the name brand for it would be Mobic and, since it is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies. Thus, I can't tell you anything about the inactive ingredients without more information from you, such as the markings on the tablet, or the name of the manufacturer. Can you please post back with this information? ## I would like to know if gluten is in my meloxicam. It's an oblong light yellow pill with a 15 stamped on it.

gluten free meloxicam 7 5

The melocicam 7.5 tablet I have been given is made by Lubin Pharma. They will not answer any inquiry which makes me nervous. As a celiac, are there ANY generic companies that prduce a Gluten Free Meloxicam 7.5? Are ALL generic Meloxicam made overseas? ## Hello! Sorry about the problem that you're having. There is a gluten free drugs list at and they list the name brand Mobic as being gluten free. Learn more Mobic details here. You may want to ask your doctor about prescribing it as 'brand medically necessary', so your insurance will cover it and the pharmacy can't give you a generic. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you! I assumed that I would need to do just that. I use but was hoping there might be one not checked...

Cosentyx and Hematuria (blood in urine)

Hi, I’m a 43 year old female and have had psoriatic arthritis for 26 years now. I’ve been on several different treatments in the past and now taking Cosentyx since feb 2021. I started with the loading dose and now on 300mg fortnightly. I haven’t experienced any side effects yet, however the last 4 days have noticed blood in my urine with tiny clots. I had a urinalysis done and results were clear of infection except it showed high level of blood in urine. I also had a renal and pelvis ultrasound and the results were good. My Dr has referred me to a urologist who I will see on 31st May. Back in 2004, while I was taking methotrexate I experience blood in urine and had a cystoscopy done. The results showed a malignant tumor in my bladder which was removed. I had no further...

BC Powder false positive?

Can you fail a drug test if you have taken BC powder earlier? I tested positive for methamphetamine. ## I’ll start off by saying it’s very rare to fail a drug test from BC powder. I take it all the time and I take a UA (drug test) every month because I’m prescribed Subutex. BC powder is aspirin but it’s in powdered form so it’ll hit faster it also has caffeine about 65 mg. The aspirin is 845 mg, So generally speaking it’s not common to fail for methamphetamine from BC powder, but I’m not saying it’s impossible. I have taken some over-the-counter anti-allergy medication such as NyQuil and various other things that have had false positive for meth. I can tell you Psuedoephedrine can make you fail for that as well. Had it happen myself and al...

If anyone could tell me what pill they think this is, or what that 511 means it would be a huge help. Thank you. ## I haven't been able to find a listing for this, but I'll post back if I do. However, your description tends to make me thing that it's something that's available over the counter. Where did you find it? ## It is an OTC arthritis pain relief medication ## Yellow pill yellow and white oval shaped like a capsule with the number 511 on the top what is this pill? ## Acetominophen 650 mg Extended Release caplets bottled by CVS

Reaction to covid-19 shot while on Enbrel

I was wondering if anyone on Enbrel has taken covid-19 shot, and had an allergic reaction? ## You can read here about which medications should be paused, when getting your COVID vaccine, and possible issues that may arise. Enbrel is listed as one that it is not necessary to stop, so it seems there haven't been any issues reported. The first COVID shot doesn't usually cause many side effects, other than a sore arm, with some possible bruising, at the administration site, but the second dose my cause nausea, headache, fever, chills, and joint/muscle aches. I received my second dose of the Moderna one, today, and so far, I've been feeling a little off, and have a headache setting in. Can anyone that's on Enbrel and received the vaccine post with their experience?

Arthri D for joint pain relief

Has anyone taken Arthri-D for joint pain relief? ## I heard about arthri d joint pain healing and relief from an info commercial on tv. ## arthri d joint pain relief seen on tv info commercial -looking for info on users ## I'm skeptical, the ad mentioned no prices, that is not transparent and I suspect a very hard sell to buy more than you want to try. Hate this kind of company, a bad sell job to people really looking for relief. Get the best anti-oxidant you can afford and deal with the inflammation. There is relief out there. ## Are you referring to the product ArthRID-It? It is a natural supplement, which means it is not actually proven to help with anything, it contains: Celadrin, Trolamine, Dimethicone, Chondroitin, MSM, Glucoasmine, Aloe Vera and Emu Oil.
