Insomnia and anxiety

I had a burning skin sensation that turned into a sore throat. I was prescribed the 4mg pack and antibiotic. After day 1 I had excess energy bordering on anxiety and insomnia. I suffer from anxiety and take Lexapro. I called the hospital center where I got the med and the doctor said the symptoms should lessen each day and if they got worse that it would be ok since this is a fairly low dose. Now I am confused as I hear horrible things about stopping. ## How are you doing? Did you quit the pack early? I am surprised that the Dr prescribed this to you, since one of the side effects is anxiety. I went to the ER, on my fifth day, with a severe anxiety attack, and I have no history with anxiety. I stopped taking them with two pills left. I am now two weeks past my last dose, and I am still ...

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. #...

C158 white round pill?

I have a small round white pill. One side is stamped with C, the other 158. The only pills I can ID like this say that they are yellow, but this is white. Can anyone identify it for me please? ## Hi mb ... Are you sure that your tablet isn't just a really light yellow? It is most likely Meloxicam 7.5 mg from Cipla (NDC 69097-158). DailyMed describes this pill as "yellow coloured, round, biconvex tablets, debossed with '158' on one side and 'C' on the other". They also say that "Meloxicam is a pale yellow solid" - so to me that could mean there's a chance it could almost appear white under certain lighting. Plus there aren't any coloring agents listed under the inactive ingredients. The inactive ingredients listed on the NDC page are: - Colloid...

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...

Cosentyx side effects

I was on Enbrel for 5 years for plaque psoriasis and had 95% clearing. I became tolerant to the Enbrel and the plaques started coming back especially on the scalp. Was put on Stellara which caused unrelenting fatigue and nausea with no clearing at all so I stopped. I am now taking Cosentyx which caused nausea and fatigue for a day or two after each shot. I just took my 6th dose and again have nausea and fatigue. The Cosentyx has stopped the spreading of the plaques but I have not had any clearing as of yet. I have been told not to expect much for three months so I have started the timer. Good luck to all of you and thank you for sharing, it gives me hope. ## How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Yes, it can usually take awhile for any given medication to reach its full leve...

number 7767 written on one of the blue stripes and number 100 written across the other ## What is a white capsule with a blue strip with the number 7767 on it and a blue strip on bottom with the number 100. I was told this is cellebrex? Is this a non drug med? ## That is correct, this capsule contains 100mgs of Celecoxib, which is the active ingredient in Celebrex.

Mobic And Suboxone

Does Mobic "go" with Suboxone. I take Sub for RLS and have a bad headache. Wondering if mobic will be effective. Thanks ## Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between the active ingredients in Mobic and Suboxone; deeming them safe to take together. Mobic (Meloxicam) is generally indicated for symptoms associated with arthritis, so I'm not sure how effective it will be in alleviating a bad headache or RLS. Perhaps a more natural remedy like peppermint or lavender essential oil would be helpful for the headache, but for RLS I'd consider trying chamomile tea at night along with some medical marijuana (depending on what state you're living in). I just find natural options to have less side effects and more therapeutic benefits. I hope this helps! ##...

gluten in meloxicam

Are meloxicam tablets (with an imprint of "ZC 26") gluten free? I have celiac... ## Yes, these tablets contain no ingredients that would cause them to contain gluten. Along with the active ingredient, they are listed by Zydus Pharmaceuticals as containing crospovidone, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, trisodium citrate dehydrate, povidone and micocrystalline cellulose. The FDA classifies this medication as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's most commonly used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ## HEY! Great news! I just called Zydus and their medical team says their meloxicam is fre...

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...

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. I'm expericening floating, constipation, and stomach pains. ## Is taking muscle relaxers 500mg and meloxicams 7.5mg and buspirone 10mgs okay to take all in the mo...

Neural Forte Sluter Domull

I have degenerative arthritis and diabetes type 2. This medicine is recommended for inflammation and neuropathy. Does one need a prescription? Do they sell this med in the USA? ## Hi Maria, From what I could gather, "neural forte sluter domull" appears to be a product of Mexico. And just for clarification, my understanding is that "Neural forte" is the medication name and "Fluter Domull" is the manufacturer. In my findings this particular brand does not appear to be available in the US. However, the majority of its ingredients are readily available over the counter: Vitamin B1 (50 mg) Vitamin B6 (100 mg) Vitamin B12 (1000 mg) Acetaminophen (500 mg) The other listed component in Neural goes by the following chemical name at a dosage of 1mg (which may or may not re...

Swelling in ankles and feet left hand largebump wrist swollen

Best medicine for degenerative arthritis ## For the past 3wks my ankles & feet has been swollen. They'll go down for a day or so but will swell back up. They wasn't sore at first but they are starting to get tender around my ankles & the top of my feet. I wanted to know what's causing it & is there anything that will prevent it from happening ## I can explain all of the swelling in my calves, ankles and toes to RA, and medications but the top of my food is a mound and hurt so BAD even to the touch. I just keep saying it must be RA because we have so many bones and joints in our feet, and now it kills to walk on the bottom of my feet and I should wear shoes but it hurts to wear them. Its like every bone in my feet are breaking which could be as osteoporosis has go...

Ardosons capsule 25 mg

I am having a reaction to the medication ardosons and trying to get more details about this drug. ## Hi stephanie, Sorry to hear about your reaction to that medication. Are you feeling any better now? Based on my research, the ingredients found in Ardosons are: Indomethacin, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory; Betamethasone, which is a steroid class medication; and Methocarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant. Since each medication can effect you differently, I think you really have to look at each drug's individual profile to get a better idea of what side effects are really associated with the medication as a whole. It may also be a good idea to contact your doctor about any safer alternatives to Ardosons. You can learn more about these drugs on the pages for: Indomethacin Det...

Artrosilium Gel

Where to buy artrosilium gel? ## Need to know about artrosilium gel and where I could buy or get sample of it. ## my mother wants to try it safe? and does it work? where do i get it ? she is 88y/o and has been on the end of a few snake oil remedies , so i'd be appreciative for the truth, thanx ## Artrosilium is only available directly from the manufacturer, they do not allow it to be sold in stores or by other websites. As to it being snake oil, since it is not a medically proven and tested product, I'll let you form your own conclusions on that. They also don't make it easy to discover information on it, even their downloaded PDF only talks about it containing organic silica, so I am not sure if that's the only ingredient or if they also use other sub...

Enbrel and skin problems on face

I was taking pre-filled injections of Enbrel for 4 weeks and didn’t really see much difference until I switched to the click-pen on Wednesday, which, since then I have had scabs all over my face and an itching sensation like crazy. It looks horrible, like a bad case of acne and blisters and scabs. ## Those can be normal side effects of Enbrel, and it does usually take several weeks for the side effects to fully manifest. You may also experience nausea, weakness, sore throat, mood changes, and chills. How are you doing now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?
