HERE IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FAKE R039. The following is info that comes from a lot of online research and past experiences. I hope it will help. Credential: B.S In Business: There are probably more fake "school busses" produced by Cartels/Domestic dealers than the drug companies in the U.S alone. There are so many fake "yellow ladders" or "yellow school busses" all over the U.S with the R039 printed on them. Im in California but I have been reading A lot about fake bars all over the U.S (all having the same inconsistencies as the ones here in the Sacramento Valley).The easiest way to tell is to simply look at the R. You will notice the the R looks nothing like the real one. The fake ones have an R that looks similar to the one i'm using to type ...

Efudex 5%

Creme ## I have been taking applying 5% Efudex cream for two days to my lip per my Dr. Orders. So far, I have had no swelling or any sign of side effects. Does this mean the spot on my lip is non-cancerous? I was under the impression I was to have swelling and pain, and that this cream kills everything allowing the good cells to regrow. ## have to start the efudex 5% cream once a day on upper and lower lips. I am extremely worried about the pain. Is there anything besides aquafor or Vaseline to he help with pain? ## It contains the active ingredient fluorouracil, which is used to treat areas of skin that have been heavily exposed to the sun, or those that have been tested to have Basal Cell Carcinoma. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation,...

Reclasp IV Side Effects

I have done Forteo, Prolia and now my doctor wants me to do Reclasp. I am 75 years old, haven't had any fractures I am aware of. Forteo caused more pain than usual, Prolia caused hair loss and the texture of my hair changed. The hair loss I mean bald spots. I have put off the Reclasp my doctor is wanting me to do, more poison going into my body and I don't feel any better. At my age, I have enough aches and pain without medication making me feel worse. ANYONE have anything positive to say about this drug. ## Unfortunately, I haven't read any posts from anyone that's had good experiences with Reclast, or most of the other medications that you've listed. They are all known to cause side effects, such as nausea, diarrhea, joint aches, bone pain, and elevated calcium lev...

cl4 cancer cure

I am Rex, 86 yrs old and l live on an Iowa farm. I had my prostate removed 20 yards ago. I now have anogel on my lung. I have read about CL4 cancer cure shots would this be any thing I could use? Can I get it in pills? I had six heart bypass in 2004 at McAllen heart hospital. My blood psi. 120/80 every day, I am very active I have machine & welding shop I work in every day on my Iowa us farm. Can you help me? ## Hi Rex, Sorry to hear about your situation. I was just doing some research on CL4 and despite information being sparse, I did find a medical journal (linked below) that depicted CL4 as "a nuclease-resistant RNA-aptamer", which according to their investigation, is able to bind at high affinity to EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptors) on the surface of different can...

Help with pain while using Efudex cream

I am on week 5 of using Efudex just above my baby toe. Really hard to wear shoes so pretty housebound. The pain has been excruciating the last few days. Tried Tylenol, Tylenol 3 and Ibuprofen - and nothing works. Can anyone recommend something? ## It might be best to speak to your doctor to find out what might help you the most, and do so safely. Efudex has been known to cause some pain, redness, and irritation, to the treated area as side effects, along with itching, and darkening of the skin. Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

ardosons, methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine

Can I take ardosons when I take methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine for my arthritis and sciatica nerve? ## Can I take one day ardosons and one day hydroxicloroquine ## Ardoson is listed as containing Indomethacin and Methocarbamol, the first is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, and the second is a muscle relaxant. You should not take it, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, since it could interact with some medications, or be contraindicated with some medical conditions. Are those the only other medications that you are taking?

Mitochondrial disease

I was Dx with Mitochondrial Myopathy in 9/09 after much testing and labs and finally by muscle biopsy. I was recently told by my neurologist that there had been some research done revealing their effectiveness of this medication in helping to control the duration, intensity and frequency of muscular spasms and cramping, sometimes crippling in its active phases. I began this therapy and within just a few weeks I was having less intensive cramping, the duration was even for less amounts of time. It became more tolerable. It did not do much in controlling the weakness and fatigue I felt but any relief was greatly appreciated, The local pharmacies had to pool their supplies to fill my prescription, I guess my dosage was higher than the usual. It was in a word experimental. I was taking 75 m...

Redness after Efudex treatment

I have used Efudex twice over several years. I wonder what will help the redness that happens after the crust has peeled away? The affected area is upper lip and side of nose. ## Hi Ren, have you finished taking the course of Efudex at this point? Medline Plus says "If you are using fluorouracil to treat actinic or solar keratoses, you should continue using it until the lesions start to peel off. This usually takes about 2 to 4 weeks. However, the lesions may not be completely healed until 1 or 2 months after you stop using fluorouracil." It also says that the redness is normal, except in cases of a severe red skin rash (which should be reported as a serious side effect). Would you consider your case severe? As to treating the redness, you may be able to apply an over the counte...

Efudex doesn't have to be a nightmare

I was prescribed Efudix to treat spots on the back of my hands. I have been applying a thin layer daily for 4 weeks. I have had no side effects, no irritation, burning sensations, blistering or pain. The spots have become slightly redder and that's all. Efudix does not have to a nightmare and every case is different. ## That is correct, we are all different, so not everyone will experience side effects while using it. The typical side effects may include skin redness, burning, sun sensitivity, and swelling. Are you still experiencing good results with it? ## Hi. I will touch base with you again early next week. I am meeting the skin doctor on Monday to get their opinion. Still little or no change after 6 weeks. The Pharmacist has suggested twice daily application but I will be guide...

Skin won't tan/skin won't get sunburn

I've never had a sunburn and cannot tan. Why is this? I'm Italian and Spanish but have very fair skin because of health issues, I'm also anemic which makes me even whiter! :/ I've spent all summer outside and nothing. I get a tinncchh darker when I'm outside the whole season, but its soo little, ud never know. I'm so confused considering everyone's always said the more fair skinned u are, the more u will burn. I thankfully have no idea what a sunburn feels like lol. ## That isn't common, but you are not the first person to experience this, and from someone who does burn very easily, trust me, you aren't missing anything, you are also greatly lowering your risk of developing certain types of skin cancer. Do you experience other types of burns, such as ...

square white pill with p on one side and m5 on the other

I found a small white, square pill on my floor with the letter P with a circle around the P on one side and the letter M over 5 on the other. I'm wondering what it is so I can try to see where it may have come from? ## Did you ever find out? I found the same one. ## I found one too and it's my moms. She has terminal cancer. ## Hey did you find out what this was? I found one in my hallway in the apartment. ## I am trying to find out the same thing! I found these pills, and cannot find info on them anywhere online. An answer on this site suggested maybe a cancer medication? Can anyone advise? ## It’s called Metonia. It’s an anti nausea medication and it works really well. I take them for my migraines when I’m super sick but they’re often prescribed to cance...

Side effects of Chemo/Photon Therapy

Have been undergoing chemo and Photon treatments for metastic Squamous cell carcinoma in my throat and lymph nodes on one side of my neck. After 4 weeks of treatments have problems swallowing, throat pain, dry mouth, water tastes salty and food has no flavor. I’m also getting ocular migraines and ringing in my ears after Photon Treatments. Food with no flavor I can deal with, but, water tasting salty is really frustrating. Any ideas out there as to what is causing what? ## Unfortunately, it is hard to even guess, since those are well known side effects of almost all cancer therapies. I understand how the salty water can be frustrating, I was on a medication, once, that caused it, thankfully, I was able to just switch to something else. Do you know anything more specific regarding ...

Sutent Information

Sutent put sores and blisters on my wife's feet really bad. The doctor took her off it. The fda needs to take a good look at the side effects... ## I definitely agree with you that the FDA needs to step up and take a closer look into the long term effects of whatever they approve for the public... Unfortunately, in any medical situation, a patient has to be their own best advocate. Doctors often prescribe medications according to their experience with how well something has worked for other patients and, when something goes wrong, they are often reluctant to attribute it to the medication. Hopefully your wife is able to find something natural that works just as well or better without the side effects of Sutent. If you take a look at the link below, you can view a list of side effect...

Efudex (Fluorouracil) Cream 5%

I used this prescription on my forehead twice a day for 10 days. Removed all my ak's. Has now been about 1 year and a few are returning. You must apply a very thin film. It did turn bright red after about 7 days. Remains that way while peeling. About three weeks after stopping treatment. Not much pain for me. Just too much time hiding at home. Don't use any cosmetics while treating. Never do your whole face at once! ## I agree completely. I did the exact treatment in 2014 and have been using this product on and off since then. Only a few have returned to this day. Works great for me. I experienced minimum sting or itching. You must use a very fine touch of cream and then rub it in. Keep treated areas small. Never exceed over 9 x 9 inch or it will get into your blood and cause pa...

h86 - where can i get it

I am from Mumbai India. My friend who lives in Goa has cancer in the kidney and it has spread to his liver. He is 60 years old. I wanted to know are they suitable for him and if so can they be sent to India by post or any other means? ## Would suggest taking B-17 instead. Cost: around $27.00 usd. Research it for yourself online. ## Where can you get B-17 for this price? Can you recommend a location. ## B-17 is also known as Laetil. It is produced mostly from apricot kernels ## Just chew on apricot seeds 4 to 5 per day. You can buy it at any store like Nuts and Spices in Chennai. You should look up the Budwig Protocall. It involves mixing 1/2 cup paneer with a table spoon of flax seed oil; fruit and veg juices, wheat grass juice, soda bicarbonate, sunlight, exercise, no sugar or white ri...

Letrozole and hot flashes

I've been on Letrozole for over 6 months for metastatic breast cancer that spread to my bones. I had a complete hysterectomy in 1997 so I was surprised to learn my body fat still produces estrogen which fed my Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer. My second pill sent me into a horrible hot flash. I almost quit taking it but figured out by changing times I took it by advancing one hour each day that when I take it around 7p.m. I don't have hot flashes at night but do have one at 6pm right before time for another dose. ## You can read more about what these types of medications do on MedlinePlus. Letrozole is a hormone based chemotherapy, and when something disrupts your natural hormones, hot flashes can occur, just like they can during natural perimenopause, or menopause. As someone in ...

Efudex treatment effects

I have used Efudex for four weeks and i now have a lump with a hard crust around it, and it is sore and itchy. What should i do? ## Hello, Judy! How are you? Have you informed your doctor, yet? The U.S. FDA does list the dryness/crusting as being possible side effects of using it. It may also cause abdominal pain, headache and mouth sores. How long has your doctor instructed you to use it? ## Medline Plus states "If you are using fluorouracil to treat actinic or solar keratoses, you should continue using it until the lesions start to peel off. This usually takes about 2 to 4 weeks. However, the lesions may not be completely healed until 1 or 2 months after you stop using fluorouracil. If you are using fluorouracil to treat basal cell carcinoma, you should continue using it until the...

Efudex with Dovonex

Just letting everyone know that I just did the newest Efudex treatment protocol which requires mixing 50% Efudex with 50% Dovonex (vitamin D) and it was very fast and easy. Four days of application of the combo "lit up" my face and 7 days later my face and scalp were virtually back to normal. Minimal pain, like a sunburn, and no scabbing, pus, etc. I was really scared to do the longer treatment after reading blogs and looking at pictures, but the new treatment is a piece of cake. Plus, according to related articles, it actually works better. A real win-win! "SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – A four-day topical combination regimen of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and calcipotriene removed almost 90% of facial actinic keratoses – significantly more than with 5-FU monotherapy, in a rando...

The 3-week Efudex / Fluorouracil nightmare is now unnecessary!!

Harvard Medical recently discovered a new treatment regime for AK. This new four-day Harvard Medical protocol is going to save us all from the Efudex & Fluorouracil nightmare: Adding calcipotriene to 5-FU dramatically reduced AKs I used this 4-day treatment for AK in Dec '18 and it works!! Save yourself from the 3 week fluorouracil nightmare and do this 4-day treatment instead. I made this Youtube video of my experience with this protocol: The treatment resolves actinic keratosis in only 4 days. No longer is the pain and discomfort of the commonly prescribed 3 week Flouracil necessary to clear your skin of these pre-cancerous lesions. Mix 5% Fluoroucil and Calcipotriene 50/50 and apply twice per day for four days. Both of these creams can be purchased through prescription. Your ...
