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. ##...

Does Meloxicam contain Aspirin or Tylenol? ## Hi Lynnette - No, Meloxicam is its own drug / active ingredient. It is a different drug from Aspirin or Acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol), though it is in a similar classification. Meloxicam is a Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory drug (NSAID) most commonly prescribed for osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). More Details:

mobic and magnesium salicylate

I just took a Diurex and a mobic within minutes of each other...is this a problem? ## My mother takes mobic on a periodic basis. She has also begun to take magnesium supplements in hopes of relieving muscle cramps. Should we be worried about a drug interaction? ## I didn't find any interactions, or warnings listed, but it is always best to double check with your doctor, or pharmacist to be sure, since they may be aware of information that hasn't been listed in the databases, yet. Mobic contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, it's a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. Are you on any other...

Pain Management Doctors In Arkansas Who Have Own Office That Takes Medicaid

I have taken methadone for about 9 yrs. and other pain medicines before that. I have chronic pain post polio syndrome, Degenerative arthritis, Degenerative disc. in back due to severe Scoliosis. New laws passed , so my Doctor stopped doing pain management, not sure why. The pain management clinics are expensive and they do not take medicaid. I need a Doctor for pain management that can prescribe pain medication, but who takes medicaid patients. The Disable and poor are out of luck now. Need Doctor from south Arkansas ## I'm sorry, but even for any listings I find in your area, I have no way of knowing what types of insurance they accept. Have you tried asking your doctor for a referral somewhere else? Have you tried contacting your local Medicaid office to see if they have a list of...

will meloxicam show up on a drug test

Will meloxicam 15 mg show up on a drug test? Thank you ## only the drugs a drug test is testing for can show up - eg marijuana, cocaine. it is unlikely a drug like Meloxicam, used for arthritis, would show. however, if it is being abused, the side effects may signal an alarm to someone that something is not right. ## No, it will not. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. ## Anybody gaining weight from taking this Mobic 15mg? ## I have a drug test for the military in about two weeks, I take my boyfriends meloxicam for my back at work because I am a server and I never sit down really unless its dead shift. Will it show up on a military blood drug test? PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE! ## All I've ever know it showing up for is benzodiazepine once in a while ## It can show up depen...

Celebrex and sweating

I have been sweating a lot, even in cold weather. Is this a possible side effect of Celebrex? ## Hi Debrose - do you have a fever or any cold / flu like symptoms? I was reading through the Celecoxib side effects on Medline Plus and didn't see anything specifically listing sweating or hot flashes. However, what you reported could go in line with other side effects listed. I would read through the list on that page, and definitely let your doctor know since they should factor in any other things from your medical history. For example, it says "Your blood pressure should be checked regularly during your treatment." Could the sweating relate to a change in your blood pressure? Just things to consider and get checked asap. I hope this helps and best wishes with your treatment. Pl...

Manteca De Ubre uses

What medical reasons is it used for? ## Manteca de ubre ## Does anyone know the ingredients in this ointment? Is it manufactured by Germa? ## On Amazon I found some Germa Manteca Ubre Plus 3oz. Kind of hard to come by it seems. Is this the same product you're talking about? ## Manteca de Ubre is used for sore muscle or muscle pain. I used it recently for muscle pain from a fall. I missed a step and landed on my legs and ankles. I spent one night quite uncomfortable. I rubbed the Manteca de Ubre last night and slept like a baby. With other stuff I have used in the past it takes about a week or so to make me feel comfortable. This only took one night. ## I used it a long time ago for an infection I had on my toe, under the nail, I put it only one time, at night time and the next follo...

Flexim plus tablet uses

Is it a good treatment for arthritis pain? ## I am feeling back pain and body so I need pain medication for my RA . ## According to a related thread about Flexim Plus, this medicine contains "Paracetamol, Diclofenac and Methocarbamol, so it is a muscle relaxant and pain reliever." ## Hello Corline young McKnight, Reportedly flexim contains Methocarbamol and acetaminophen. The methocarbamol acts as a muscle relaxant and a central nervous system depressant while the acetaminophen acts as an anti-inflammatory and pain killer. It is important to understand that while this medicine can help relieve the pain of your arthritis it will not in any way aid in curing the underlying problems. I wasn't able to find the drug schedule of this medicine in Jamaica and thus I can only recomme...

Should I eat food with Methylprednisolone?

Should I eat something before I take my Methylprednisolone at bedtime? ## That's probably a good idea - The dietary instructions for this drug say: "Methylprednisolone may cause an upset stomach. Take methylprednisolone with food or milk." Hope this helps and best wishes! Source: Medline Plus

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...
