HOW MANY SAMBONG CAN BE TAKEN EVERY DAY? ACTUALLY, I STARTED TO TAKE SAMBONG LAST NIGHT ON JUNE 13, 2011 WITH THE RECOMMENDATION OF MY AUNTIE BUT I TAKE ONLY 3 TABLETS A DAY... IS IT OK IF I TAKE 3 TABLETS A DAY? ## Sambong is a supplement that is claimed to have quite a few medical uses, including being used as a diuretic and yes, it is usually taken 3 times a day, though it can be anywhere from 1 to 2 tablets, depending on the condition it is being used to treat.

Pill splitting of Spironolactone

Is it okay to split a 100 mg tab of Spironolactone? ## Hello, Goje! How are you? Yes, it is not a time released medication, so you can do so, as long as your doctor approves. We found out that even the lowest dose can be too much for me, so I have to cut them all. The FDA classifies this medication as a being a potassium sparing diuretic. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, heartburn, stomach pain, increased urination and dehydration. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Where can I fill a prescription for Spironolactone 25 mg that is scored so that I can cut it in half since my doctor wants me to take 12.5 mg?

Similar drugs to Hydrochlorothiazide

What are similar drugs to Hydrochlorothiazide? ## Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic, it works by reducing the amount of fluid in the body. There are several others on the market, such as Furosemide, which is the active ingredient in Lasix. ## Bumetanide. It's a round white pill with a line down the middle. It is to reduce fluid. I take this for my kidneys. Certain foods make me retain fluid and this works immediately. Makes you pee a lot but it works. If you need the exact numbers or mg I can give you the one I take.

A 328 R and moon crescent logo

These pills were given to me as Furosemide but when I searched for A328 they show as thyroid tablets. Been taking them for almost three months now. What are they? ## The "R and moon crescent" that you listed in title sounds like the actavis logo. Can you confirm that the logo is on your pills? Also, were these dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States, or are they from a different country? ## Yes. The logo is on one side and the A328 on the other. Walgreens ## Does it look like this? The closest possibility that I've found along these lines is the same as what you're saying - a thyroid pill containing Methimazole 5 mg. The only thing is that it's not reported to have the R and Logo on the back side, but based on the fact that it was manufactured by Actavis Totowa...

Why No Man Should Ever Take Spironolactone Or Aldactone: Both Stop Your Body From Processing Testosterone

Many men still take spironolactone aka Aldactone without a clue that it can virtually undue your sexuality. Spironolactone will slow or stop beard, arm, leg, chest and leg hair growth. It can cause your genitals to shrink. It can make your personality meek and obliging. it can rob you of initiative and male drive, sexual and non-sexual. It can steal away your ability to become sexually stimulated, robbing you entirely of your male sex drive. It can cause gynecomastia, a condition in which males develop female-like breasts. This is not nonsense. All of the above happened to me. I had finally been discharged from the hospital after a heart attack and severe complications which put me in the ICU for 18 days with heart failure, kidney failure, emergency quintuple coronary bypass surgery, ca...

Indapamide Discontinuation

I've taken Indapamide for many years, as well as Spironolactone. I've lost about 50 pounds and my doctor gave me permission to stop Indapamide and keep taking Spironolactone. I also check my blood pressure daily. Since I stopped taking Indapamide about 3 days ago, I'm interested in knowing what side effects I can expect from doing this? ## @Rosalie, Depending on how long you've been taking Indapamide, withdrawal symptoms may be non-existent. The following clinical study by NIH also depicts no withdrawal symptoms being associated with Indapamide after 10 years of review: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4077233 On the contrary, if you google "Indapamide withdrawal symptoms", you will find mention of: dizziness, fatigue, headache, loss of energy or weakness, muscle cramps o...

Hydrochlorothiazide/25mg effects?

What are the effects of this drug? Are there any side effects? ## half the 25 mg prescribed for HBP; need to know about side effects; cannot sleep; mouth sore..thanks ## Is this safe. for long term use. hydrochlorot 25mg. ## In regards to posts like this, it is very important that it always be stated that every medication carries the risk of causing side effects, even over the counter products. I know some doctors claim that they don't, but they are either uninformed or are trying to keep you from being afraid of taking a medication they feel you need. However, when something is prescribed for you, always just assume that it may cause side effects. You may be lucky and not experience any, but there's no way of knowing ahead of time. As to the Hydrochlorothiazide, it is a diureti...

Triamterene-HCTZ 37.5/25mg and fluid retention

I have been prescribed this medication for inner ear treatment. My doctor told me to take a pill at about 8 o'clock in the morning because this medication will make me go to the ladies room 3 times more often than I usually do. I said that I don't need to go more often than I do because it was already many times more than what is normal. Even during the night time I'm going every 1-2 hours on some nights, but sometimes don't get up and just use the bathroom normally: before going to bed and after I get up. Some nights I can go just 1 time during my sleep cycle. My doctor still thinks that I need to take this medication daily anyway. I take it now like he prescribed, but received the opposite effect. After talking a pill at 8 o'clock in the morning I go to the bathroo...

Generic name, classification, dosage mechanism of action indication, contraindication side effects nursing consideration ## I need to know what it is ## This is most likely a misspelling of the drug Furosemide, which is a loop diuretic medication used to treat fluid build-up due to heart failure, liver scarring, or kidney disease. It may also be used for the treatment of high blood pressure. Does that sound right to you?

Hydrochlorothiazide lip swelling and burning rash

Anyone experience this? Been on HCTZ for 7 or 8 years and now all of a sudden this burning redness is killing me? ## That is odd, but it is not impossible to suddenly have a reaction to something that you have been taking, before, without issue. Has anything else changed, recently? Are you on any other medications? Are you using any new skin care products? Are the current tablets from a different manufacturer? Have you informed your doctor of the problem? You may need medical attention, and/or to try a different medication. The typical side effects of Hydrochlorothiazide, according to FDA reports, usually include: nausea, dizziness, headache, dehydration, and increased urination.

prexum plus 5mg versus prexum 5mg

what is the difference between the two, prexum plus 5mg versus prexum 5mg. My pharmacy insists they the same, then why the difference with the plus? ## can i take prexum plus 5mg if Dr prescribed prexum plus 4mg pharmacist gave me 5mg ## Hello Debbie, From what I can find on these drugs the only difference between the two is that Prexum Plus also contains the active ingredient Indapamide - 1.25Mg. Indapamide is used to reduce high blood pressure and reduce extra salt and fluid in the body. If your doctor is prescribing your Prexum for the use of the active ingredient perindopril arginine then there will be no difference between the two. I hope this information helps. ## Can I take Prexum Plus together with Prexum 4mg?

Triamt/hctz is there an OTC for this?

I had open heart surgery in 2000, no problems since. Doc. put me on this medication and won't refill without a office visit ($100 minimum). With rising cost, I have no medical ins. to help me out with the cost of the visit. The meds are only $4 a month, but can't get a script without a office visit. Sad isn't it? It seems that the money pinch will get you somewhere. Please I need to know if there is an over the counter for this medication. ## Just go to the free clinic and a doctor will give you a script hey i understand your health insurance problem and i pay taxes so forget being ashamed about the free clinic ## Unfortunately, most doctors will not continue to prescribe, without an office visit, because they need to monitor your condition. As Grady has stated, a free, or s...

Thanks for your help ... it is greatly appreciated! ## Most blood pressure medications are known to cause hair loss, in some people that take them, as a side effect, it has also been known to cause accelerated, and irregular heart beat, but that symptom could also be caused by the Spireva.
