Pill- Half white/half yellow. 511 printed on

Regular pill shaped (similar to a thickened oval). Has defined cuts on the sides, it is NOT fully rounded. The bottom half is all white. The top half is light yellow and has 511 printed into it. 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. Learn more OTC drug details here. 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

mazon cream

for eczema, psoriasis- seeping, cracking, blistering skin- I personally used it from the age of 6 mos. in 1955 to 1988, then it disappeared from shelves- it was an over the counter cream and it really worked. At the age of 3 months my skin would swell, crack and seep a clear liquid- a pediatrician introduced the cream to my mother and at the time they had a bar soap, shampoo and cream-of which I used occasionally over the course of 30 years then all of a sudden it disappeared. I did have part of a jar I used sparingly and guarded with my life and I called the company that made the cream and they said that they took the recipe out of circulation. The jar is long gone- sadly and I do not know the name of the pharmaceutical company that originally made it. I now am entering menopause and m...

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...

I've been on cosentyx for a few months now for psoriatic arthritis and it worked great. However, for the last month I've been having the worse pain. I ache everywhere. I've never had pain like this. I wake up with my fingers and toes swollen and I have so much joint pain in my arms and shoulders I can't even brush my hair. I even took two shots of cosentyx last month and not a smidgen of relief. What gives? ## Unfortunately, it has been known to cause such side effects in some people that have used it, along with oral thrush, diarrhea, dizziness, and cough. Have you consulted your doctor? These could be symptoms of a possible severe reaction, and you should no longer use it, you may need to try something else. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does anyone have s...

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...

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.

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 artrosilium.....is 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...

failed drug test for methamphetamine

My daughter failed a drug test. She claimed she only took bc powder, ibuprophen, and trazodone..... Can u fail a drug test for methamphetamine with this mixture? ## Ibuprofen wont give a false reading for meth! Phenylalanine,pseudoephedrine (sudafed,for hayfever) & trazodone will both give a false positive though! :) Just like a reading for opiates will produce a false positive for morphine! & codeine will give a false positive for morphine also. ## I was in pain management until 2 days ago. My doctor said my drug test came back from the lab saying I tested positive for methamphetamine. I never have touched the stuff.

I have been on Enbrel now for a couple of years. Will I experience withdrawal if I go off the drug? Do I have to do it gradually? ## Hello, Erena! How are you?

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...

Celebrex shelf life

What is the shelf life of Celebrex capsule 200mg. The date on mine is 5/2/09. They have been kept in the original pharmacy container in a cool dark cabinet. Are they still effective? ## When regular prescription tablets and capsules are dispensed, they are required to have a one year shelf life, from the time you get your prescription filled. That means that yours actually expired on 05/02/10. This doesn't mean that they are dangerous to use, but after that date, they can start to lose potency and not be as effective. Have you spoken to your doctor? It may be advisable to just get a new prescription, if you still need to use this medication. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, stomach irritation and headache. ## Taking pills that are expired is not dangerous. They m...
