x112 diet drops from germany

Are these german diet drops still available? I know they worked. I knew a German gal in 1980. ## Yes, it's now called Alvalin. It costs €25 - I tried to get a prescription but they like to check your vitals before prescribing it. It will elevate blood pressure but it can be taken with blood pressure meds. ## I was in Germany in the 1990's and I use to go to a German Dr to get the b12 drops, but it comes in pill form too. ## From what I've been reading across other related threads here, these X112 diet drops stopped being available many years ago. It's interesting though that when something works really well it seems to either get banned or pulled from the market, only to be replaced by inferior alternatives with just as many if not more side effects. Has anyone man...

lisinopril anxiety and palpitations

I have come to think the extreme anxiety depression heart palpitations and tingling in my left fingers are related to the 20 mg lisinopril I started just over a year ago. I also take amlodpine and warfarin ...I cant believe it took me so long to suspect this. I will speak to my doctor but also want to see what those who quit lisinopril have to say about the weaning period and side affects while cutting down and quitting . Please advise. This is horrible beyond anything I have ever experienced. Please help if you can ! ## Sorry, I just saw this post with more details. In this case, since you are on several medications, it is hard to say which one might be causing your symptoms, if they are due to a combination of them, or if they may be unrelated. As to stopping Lisinopril, sometimes if ...

lisinopril quitting

Can some one tell me what to expect when weaning off of 20 mg down to 15 mg now no effects but now trying to go to 12.5 and today is first day and seem to be having some effects of being hot and feeling like i want to panic. I have been on it for 14 months for blood pressure . can any one advise how to wean off I just plan on 2.5 mg cuts every 10 days or so unless I get better advice ? ## Why are you stopping it? Has your doctor approved your doing so? If you were taking it for high blood pressure, you shouldn't stop without a physician's approval, because if it's the only thing controlling your blood pressure, it will become elevated, again, even if you taper off of it slowly. Are you monitoring your blood pressure and heart rate?

Taking telma and atenolol together for hypertension

I am age 70 and taking Telma 40 but my blood pressure is not under control (160/110). I have scarring in my lungs and reduced lung function. I get easily tired. Can I take Atenolol also (along with using Telma 40) for reducing my blood pressure? ## Has your doctor told you to take both of them? Multiple medications are often prescribed to help lower someone's blood pressure as fast and as safely as possible. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Are you on any other medications? ## Can I take Atenolol 50mg instead of Telma 40 for treating hypertension?

I need to view medication that are healthy alternative for Amlodipine ## What alternative medication if any that could be suggested for amlodipine. I am researching. I know that my doctor has the last word. This one is causing serious swelling of my feet. Is it correct to assume that this medication is exclusive and no other can replace it?

150 mg Wellbutrin sustained release

Since my pharmacy switched to Solco as the supplier of my Wellbutrin I have had all the symptoms, for which I was taking Wellbutrin, return. Has anyone else experienced this problem? ## Hello, Deb0724! How are you? As set forth in the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in the amount of active ingredients in generic medications, they are allowed to differ from the name brands by as much as plus or minus 20% and they only have to measure against the name brand, not other generics. Thus, it is highly possible that one may have a little more of the active ingredient, while a different one may be slightly lower. Can anyone else that's taken the one from Solco chime in with their experience? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including n...

Round White Pill Marked C14

I found a small round white tablet marked C 14 in my house and would like to find out what this pill is used for.

Want To Order The X112 Liquid Drops From Germany

If any one can help me get some i would be very greatful thank you. ## There are actually quite a few people asking about this product here in the forum. From what I could gather, if it is still available, you do have to go to Germany to obtain it (and may even have to get a prescription for it there). And after having read more details, other users are suggesting that it could even be banned by now. Below is a response from another user in the forums who states that it is currently banned: "If this helps, X112 was taken off the market. It was banned from several countries because, as that one person correctly said, it was a form of speed. That's why it was illegal for millitary to take. When I was stationed in Germany in 1999, it was not over the counter. You had to go to a Ger...

Diclofenaco tiamina piridoxina cianocobalamina

Can I take this medicine dicoflenaco while taking high blood pressure and cholesterol meds? ## It would be best not to take it, without your doctor's approval, since Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it can cause elevated blood pressure as a side effect in some people that take it, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hey, I been having a uncomfortable pain my upper left abdomen for a few months ,, can this help? ## I’m a back pain and nerves damage sufferer and I was given this vitamin type red pill and somehow it has calmed down my nerve pain tremendously. Wow this is great just had to let you know this vitamin/pain pill is a new relief for pain
