Mazon Cream

Has anyone had a coal company offer you money so they can mine before the 6 month waiting period?

Side Effects Of Isosorb Mono 30mg Er

Does this pill contain FD&C yellow 5 or blue 1 dye? These dyes cause me to itch. They are a by-product of coal tar which I'm allergic to. ## Well, Isosorbide Mononitrate is a generic, so it is manufactured by several different companies and they don't all have to use the same inactive ingredients.

If you can post back with this additional information, I'll gladly check into it for you. Learn more Isosorbide details here. ## on the front of pink oval pills 30mg. On the back it is MM or WW The manufacter may be NABP
