myland 152

white round says myland 157 ## Is it 152 or 157? If it is 152 then it is something clonopine (generic for Catapres-R). It is used to treat high blood pressure. ## I'm mistake.

Best catapres clonidine generic .1mg

Ok, so I have been on .1mg clonidine (catapres) for the last four years. I have never been to impressed with the generic I have taken nor have I ever withdrawed from clonidine ever. I take 1 in morning and 2 at night as directed. The generic I have been used to for all four years is the actavis (blue po) and have never tried any other generic. However I am big on knowing all generics differ in all medicine unless it is brand name. I tend to always order the most preferred / best generic. It would be great to get some feedback on any generics compared to actavis / blue p.o.? There are some new generics out I have noticed and I would like the most efficient. I personally stay away from Mylan on anything and usually stay away from actavis best I can but hard on this until i choose to order...

White pill mylan 152

I have taken the Mylan Catapres for a long time, but now I am told suppliers can't get it. I have been forced to take another brand which makes me sick. Why has the Mylan brand been unavailable? ## It is hard to be sure, the reason can vary. The suppliers of inactive ingredients might be short, or the suppliers of the active ingredients. The FDA warns that it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, and insomnia. What brand are you currently taking?

telma 20

my wife 62 yrs. have BP 180/90. uses catapress 150, twice a day. Now can we add this telma 20 and what are side effects please ## By grdually reducing the intake of allpathic medicine, you take the ayurvedic medicine of Mukta Vati, a very good medicine for BP, from Patanjali - the Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev. There the doctor will advise you how to stop the allopathic medicine, which has far reaching side effects. I have recently started Telma and feeling total weakness as if I have just recovered from Typhoid.

blood pressure ## My daughter was put on this med for Autism, but I'm unsure of any help it is providing. I do see some possible side effects and want to know whether or not the benefits will ever outweight the negatives. ## The only way that can be decided is by discussing it with your doctor and seeing how your daughter does on it, no one here can answer that for you, since all medications affect each person differently. ## i was pascribed catapress 4 coming off opiats. ## how long does catapres stay in urine any one no.

revelol am 50/5 olvance 40 rosavel 10 and catapres 150

hi, recent was diaginised with high bp 170/100, and doc is suggest revelol am 50/5 in morning olvance 40mg in afternoon and catapres 150 mg + rosavel 10mg for night, i am taking this for the past 4weeks and the bp fluctuates between 145/95 to 160/100, want to know how effective this medication would be, catapres makes me sleepy ## Have you consulted your doctor? Most medications usually reach their effectiveness around 4 to 6 weeks of use, so if you have been taking them for that long and are still getting high readings, you may need a dosage adjustment or you might have to try something else. While they have all been proven effective, there is no way to say whether or not any given medication is going to be effective for any given person that tries it. They can all effect everyone diff...
