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. ##...

Arthrexin and dizziness

Hi, my husband has been taking Arthrexin for gout in his feet for about a year now. He only takes it when the gout flares up however everytime he takes it it causes him severe dizziness. The dizzy spells incapacitate him and the only thing he can do is go to bed. One doctor said this was normal and another said it wasn't and I can't find any reviews where other people have experienced the same. What's your thoughts? ## Arthrexin contains the active ingredient Indemethacin, which is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Dizziness, drowsiness, stomach irritation, and headache can be normal side effects of it as documented by MedlinePlus. However, it is unusual for it to be that severe. Is he on any other medications? Has he had the ca...

Rumoquin pill information

It's a round lavender pill with no imprint on the pill itself. ## Sorry, I can't find anything under that name in prescription databases or otherwise. If there are no imprints on the pill, then it is not a prescription drug from the US, of any kind. All prescriptions sold legally in the US must have, by law, a unique imprint for ID purposes. And I am afraid that since I can't find that name listed anywhere, I am unable to tell you anything about this, sorry. ## Without Rumoquin NF I literally could not get out of bed and walk in the morning for almost an hour. I lived in Mexico for 8 years and suffer with arthritis in all the joints of both legs and my right hand. This is not a pain killer. It is the best anti-inflamatory I have ever used. When I returned to live in the US I...

Allergic reaction to nambumetone

I was prescribed this medication for inflammation. I had a reaction that has lasted over a month after only taking seven pills. My skin broke out in rashes, became red and inflamed, and turned dark like it was burnt. I‘ve been itching for almost a month. Has anyone else ever experienced this while taking this medication. ## I have been on Relefen, or Nambutone as an antibiotic inflammatory now for about a year or so. I am on 750ml mg. I have never had any of the symptoms that you have experienced. it sounds to me as if you are definitely allergic to the medication so I would definitely stop taking it and advise your doctor that gave you the medication about your rash and itching and maybe they can switch your medication to something that you will not be allergic to. Good luck to y...

3 times a day vs 8 hours

Is there a difference between 1 pill every 8 hours and 1 pill 3 times a day? 3 times a day is 8 hours yet I've seen it written both ways. ## Hello, Bosco! How are you? Yes, there is a difference. As is stated, one is meant to be taken precisely every 8 hours, but the other is just 3 times a day. That three times a day doesn't necessarily mean it has to be 8 hours apart, for instance, the doctor may just mean for someone to take it with breakfast, lunch and dinner, or in the morning when waking, at lunchtime and then at bedtime. Some medications need to be taken on a precise schedule to keep the level of them in your body consistent for them to work best, but with some medications, it doesn't matter. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Starting a new med, Arava for RA....

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...

Clonafec 100 mg Diclofenaco

Can Volfenac and/or Clonafec be used for arthritis? If not, what do you recommend? thank you ## @busdriver, Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that reportedly works by stopping the production of a substance in the body that causes inflammation/pain... So in that respect it should help with certain conditions such as arthritis. NOTE: Just to confirm, clonafec and volfenac are simply other brand names for Diclofenac. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Is it also good for heel spur pain and swelling in the foot? ## Dose Diclofenaco work? Where do I get it? ## I cannot say which foreign brands of Diclofenac work as well as the domestic ones, but if the ingredients are of a sufficient quality then they should be effective at treating pain and inflammation....

side effects of indomethacin

I am trying to find out the side effects of the medicine indomethacin. ## SERAM URIC ACID ## hurts to swallow=not a sore throat-but painful to swallow ## This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it is very potent, so the FDA warns that it can be very harsh on the stomach. It may also cause other side effects, such as nausea, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. Are there any markings on the medication you have received? ## Hi, I just started on indomethacin & am experiencing nausea, indigestion & an upset stomach. Do these disappear or do you have to put up with them?

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...

um thc pill

THC pill for Shingles treatment ## I have shingles fibromyalgia arthritis I need something for my pain that was told that um pill works ## The US National Institute of Health has a multitude of articles written that discuss the therapeutic benefits of Cannabinoids (THC/CBD) being used for postherpetic neuralgia (shingles). Cannabinoids are reportedly beneficial in treating neuroinflammation (nerve pain) as well as the stress associated with it. Cannabinoids have also been classified in clinical studies as being "neuroprotective agents". If you run a Google search for "thc for shingles nih" as well as "cbd for shingles nih", you'll find some intriguing studies that outline the benefits of Cannabis for such purposes.

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.

Watson 853 vs M367

Hello I been on watson 853 for many years from walgreens but this past few months I notice they don’t work at all just sleepy? And I went to refill at Walgreens this month and They changed to m367 and they don’t help my pain at all. More sleepy and no relief from my pain. Anybody has any ideas? I don’t think I can return them. I use them for Headaches, Pituitary Brain Tumor, Lupus, and severe arthritis. And a few other health issues!! ## No, in most cases you can't return them, due the risk of tampering, once they leave the pharmacy, although there are some that will make exceptions to help a patient. Drowsiness can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and consti...

Artridol from Mexico.

I take one about every week, can I safely increase the frequency? It seems to be less effective fthan when I started using it. ## Artridol contains the active ingredient Glucosamine, which is a supplement claimed to help with joint health. As such, it is not a medication and is not actually proven to help with anything. That said, most of these supplements are taken daily, rather than weekly. So, if it was helping you, there is no reason you cannot take it more often. Just don't overdo it, because everything can be dangerous if you take too much. Are there any questions or comments? ## I need artridol 250 mg. How i can buy it? ## Does artridol worsen osteoporrosis, my doctor here in Cancun say's it does ## this is incorrect. it contains betamethasone, indomethacin and methacarbo...
