Hydrochlorot tab Acc vs Hydrochlorothiazide cap Myl

My husband has been taking Hydrochlorothiazide cap Myl. He just got a refill and noticed it is Hydrochlorot tab Acc. Both are 12.5 mg. Are these the same medicine? ## Hi Joan - I am pretty sure that "Hydrochlorot" is just an abbreviation for the full name Hydrochlorothiazide. And based on the abbreviations that you shared, it sounds like the first version he took was a capsule from Mylan (NDC 0378-0810), and that his refill now contains the tablet from Accord (NDC 16729-182). Does the following image look like his current script? HCTZ 12.5 MG ORAL TABLET / ACCORD Color: Orange Imprint: H 1 If so, then my assumptions are correct. If NOT, is there any way that you can share the color and imprints on the new prescription? ## You are correct. His pills look like the picture. Thank ...

Combitic Global - is it a real pharmaceutical company?

I purchased what should have been Lasix 100 mg ..it says "Lusix 100 mg". The generic name should be furosemide and on the packaging it says "frusemide". There are no markings on the pills and I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? The envelope came from Combitic global caplet pvt ltd? Any suggestions? ## Honestly from the way you put it, this sounds like a classic case of a counterfeit. Deliberate misspellings for otherwise common drug names is the biggest red flag in my opinion. I'm not saying that Combitic Global Caplet is a fake manufacturer (though I could be mistaken), but perhaps whoever is distributing these products is putting on some sort of front for the real deal, if you know what I mean. On that note, Combitic Global Caplet does appea...

Is hydrochlorothiazide 25mg / triamterene 37.5mg tabs by Sandoz, greenish blue? ## Drug manufacturers can change the color or shape of any pill over a period of time without prior notice, so this is definitely something that you cannot asses unless you have the pill in your possession. Alternatively, if you can provide me the imprints and shape of the pill, I can look it up for you in a drug database and get back to you with any of these details. ## My mother has been on Triamterene/HCTZ 37.5/25 capsules for many years. The drug is manufactured by Sandoz. When she refilled the drug this weekend, she received tablets, not the capsules she had been getting. She is 86 years old, and concerned about possible side effects of changing the medication form. Are the capsules still available? ## ...

Is this lasix ## I got the same thing... it doens't seem nearly as potent as other lasix I've had. I'm wondering if it's fake. Or thinking it is.

It is commonly used to treat high blood pressure, certain cardiac conditions, congestive heart failure and GERD. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, frequent urination, hypotension, and dehydration. Is there anything else I can help with?

Why No Man Should Ever Take Spironolactone Or Aldactone Both Stop Your Body From Processing and 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...

Hydrochlorothiazide And Triamterene By Sandoz Pharmaceuticals

My aunt has been taking the Sandoz Pharmaceutical, hydrochlorothiazide and triamterene for 13 yrs. The GG606, now the pharmacy is saying they can't get that one anymore that they have a new one by a different company that is the same. She has tried to take this, but it gives her a terrible heachache, where the other one didn't. Is there any pharmacy that still carries this medication by Sandoz Pharmaceutical? ## Unfortunately, there is a shortage of the Triamterene and Sandoz is one of the companies affected, so it isn't currently available anywhere. There can be fluctuations in the active ingredients of generic medications, this may be causing changes in her blood pressure, which could cause the headaches. Has she talked to her doctor about this, yet? She may require a dosa...
