Round Orange Pill S35

How or what does this web page help or do for parents trying to find out what pills are? I caught my kid with an orange round pill imprinted with S35 on one side and nothing on the other side and our wonderful Internet could not lead me to a page describing what exactly this pill is. They can start making illicit orange round S35 pills and get away with selling it because we don't even know what it is as a legal pill. The next step will be opiates looking like a dark-colored Advil but with coating. Even come in the form of Tylenol but a 50 is placed in capsules. I've seen it. ## There are those of us who can research pill identifications, side effect details, and other information to help people, such as yourself, that are having problems trying to find information on their own....

L486 red n white pill (Docusate sodium 100 mg)

If 1 is a stool softener can i take 2 to make it a laxative? I have constipation from my opioids. ## Hello Shirley, Excellent question. Stool Softener, AKA Docusate Sodium, commonly comes in 50mg and 100mg soft gels. I too have OIC (Opioid-Induced Constipation). Docusate Sodium is but one part of my regimen for my personal amount of Opioids. I also take a capful of Miralax almost every day. I also take 4 Docusate Sodium Softgels of 100mg each for a total of 400mgs. I'll take the softgels every other day. Now for a specific answer to your question: 1 soft gel of Docusate Sodium is a stool softener, of course. 2 softgels is a doubling of the stool softener and are simply just more stool softener. It doesn't convert to a laxative based on simply using a larger dose. Just as my 4 10...

WHITE ON ONE SIDE THE OTHER RED ## Hi Gloria, I'm not certain as to whether this is a definitive match, but information I am seeing suggests that what you have is an over-the-counter stool softener/laxative by the name of Docusate sodium (100mg). They describe the red and white tablet as being a liquid filled capsule, made by Kroger Co. For verification, it also reportedly carries a National Drug Code of 30142-238. Another attribute to take note of is its size. The particular description I found lists the size as being 12 mm. One other thing I want to mention is that I did come across a nearly identical pill that carried an imprint of "SCU1" as opposed to "SCU2", which was also identified as a stool softener. However this pill was completely red and didn't have w...

ic docusate sodium, Diclofenac

I am suffering with sciatica that is either caused by, or made worse by ulcerative colitis causing pain in my left leg. I am often constipated as a result and it makes the pain unberable at times. I know Diclofenac can cause stroke and I was wondering how safe it is to take Colace with it to ease the constipation being that they both contain a type of "sodium" ## Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Colace/ Sodium Docusate is a stool softener. ## It isn't that they contain types of sodium, it is just the base ion of the exact salt that the medications are derived from. You shouldn't take anything, without your doctor's approval, but these aren't like the sodium you are thinking of that's found in food or table salt. Is there anything else I can hel...

orange gel or

I found a small orangish-redish oval shaped gel pill with the imprint NV 13 on one side ## Hello, April! How are you? The NV logo is used on over the counter products, for instance I am familiar with one that is a Laxative that has the marking NV12 and is the same type of pill. That leads me to suspect that this may also be Docusate, but I am not completely certain. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this?
