Not asking, giving some info

Did you know a lot of toothaches and face sweeling is due to your main sinus duct where your cheek bone is, that is filled up with fluid, called sinusitis? Most people don't even know you can get that. Causes teeth to hurt, gums swollen, face swelling. It's always good to see a doctor first so they can put you on the right meds. Even though Cedfinir is one of the medication they will prescribe. But do understand it is not a miracle pill. Give it 4-6 days before you even see any results. Ok well I just wanted to share some info. Have a nice day. ## Hello AlwaysSick, Thank you for this information. Just to expand a little bit upon this, allergies in general can make more than just your teeth and nose swell and ache. Anywhere that your body is exposed to the allergens can become in...

Nitil tablet 5mg usage

My doctor prescribed these small tablets for me when I had a balance problem. I had to hold onto furniture when I got out of bed. Everything around you spins. It apparently has something to do with an inner ear infection. ## Hello Nico, I was unable to find any medication under the name of nitil. This could be either from a typo or it's just a new drug with very little information on it. What I do know is that our ears maintain our equilibrium. The vestibular system works in conjunction with our sight in order to give us a sense of balance and positioning with reference to other objects. Often when people have an ear infection or other ear related problems that affect the vestibular system we experience dizziness and vertigo, sometimes to the point of being completely uncapable of m...

TRP white diamond pill

Trying to identify a white diamond shaped pill about 1/4 inch long, 3/16 inch thick. One side has the marking TRP on it. What can it be, as it doesn't match and of the descriptions that I've seen? ## I double checked this site's NDC database, and I believe I found an over the counter product which matches your description. NDC 17312-043, "Ring Relief" tablets. Looks like a homeopathic formula which is meant to help with ringing in the ears. White, diamond-shaped tablets with the marking TRP. It appears to be available over the counter from places like Amazon. Ingredients: - Allylthiourea - Arnica Montana - Calcium Sulfide - Hypericum Perforatum - Lycopodium Clavatum Spore - Mercurius Solubilis - Salicylic Acid - Silicon Dioxide {affiliate link added}

lactose free drugs

Are there any lactose free cholesterol drugs ## It is very hard to say, since each company that makes them has their own formula of ingredients. ## calcium citrate lactose free ## I am lactose/milk and povidone intolerant. My medications all contain 1 or more of these allergens, Atenolol, Levothyroxine, HCTZ. Taking these with antihistamine (also containing lactose) still triggers migraines daily, for which I take caffeine to counteract. Is there any way I can get allergen free medications. My doctor & pharmacy don't have a clue or don't care to find the answer. I am developing arthritis and dental pain from using these meds. Please help ## I, too, am allergic to lactose (milk) and corn. I just researched and found Levothyroxin made by Sandoz that does not have these ingredi...

Can you please inform me as to what the dosage is, for terramicina 125 mg, for an ear infection. Thank you ## Hi i am asking about my husband. Okay so he had a earache for almost 2 days and then the day before yesterday he felt sharper pain in his ear and a cracking sound and now his ear has been draining.

Calvepen Tabs 666mg

Prescribed for a sore throat ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## was prescribed 21 of these and cant remember why, i still have them because i go better without them! ## i am on a prescribed course of calvepen 666mg, one to be taken 4 times a day. i went to the doctor with painfully swollen glands and all over body aches. it seems to be clearing up quite nicely. however, i am experiencing some strong side effects. t...

Expired ear drops

I have expired ear drops that are two months expired and I was wondering if I could still use them? ## Hello, Clarisa! How are you? It would be best to dispose of them and see your doctor for a new prescription, if needed. Liquids tend to degrade and go bad much faster than other formulations, so using them once expired is just a bad idea, as reported by the NIH. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My left ear got blocked after i have taken expired ear drops which got expired 2 months ago. Any help or sugggestions ## So how r u feeling now?? Because the se thing happened to me after taking expired drops.. ## So should i go see a Dr. Because my ear is cloged now ## How r u feeling now because the Same thing happened to me n now my rar is cloged. ## I used expired eardrops and now ...

Expired Tresaderm Ear Drops For Veterinary Use

I have some Tresaderm ear drops for my dog that expired some time ago. Will they still be effective? ## How long has it been since they expired? When it comes to expired meds, my perspective is that in most cases, solution/liquid-based products don't last as long as medications in pill form and therefore I personally wouldn't trust expired ear drops if it's significantly past their due date. If you are going to attempt to use them, it may just be best to get a second opinion from a licensed veterinarian who can attest to their long term efficacy and safety. How well they were stored will also play a role in this decision.

Hi, I'm suffering from dust allergies from last 3/4 years.

If the medicine will stop for two to three days the all problems are felling like nausea, cough in chest, breathing problem. Please suggest me which is the best medicine for my conditions.

Adco-Bisocor inactive ingredients

Need to know all of the ingredients, active and inactive/other, of Adco-Bisocor please, as I am allergic to lactose, citric acid, etc. ## Sorry, I am new to this forum and do not know the ropes yet. This is not a reply, I am only trying to be more specific. As I use quite a few different chronic medications and am allergic to some ingredients, I need to know as much as possible about them. As my dr could not get hold of the regular CiplaZar 100 I usually take, he had to substitute it with Bilocor. As they both are generics, the inactive ingredients may differ and I was hoping that Bilocor does not contain the accursed citric acid and lactose which seem to be in more or less everything I have to take. Taking ten different chronic medications, the effect of all allergens combined is devas...

Tanganil 500mgs

I have just been prescribed tanganil as I experienced very bad side effect with vastarel which I took after a bad ear infection which resulted in part deafness in one ear. The Vastarel gave me vertigo, headache I felt sleepy all the time. I thought my middle ear was the problem, but the doc. said it has to be the vastarel. I hope tanganil will work for me. ## Hi, I have had major surgery on both ears and from time to time get bad vertigo. In the UK they prescribe Stemitel. I don't know it's generic name, but it takes about five days to work. When I got an attack in France they sold me Tanganil over the counter; worked like magic. I am not qualified to comment medically. I can only say I brought a packet back to the UK and that is what I will use next time.

what pain medicine can you take before surgery

I have a serious ear infection. I have surgery on monday morning. What can i take to ease the pain? ## Hi Jasmine, Sorry to hear about your ear infection. I see that you posted this message back on Feb. 11th (over a week ago)...Were you able to find anything yet to manage the pain? My first thought would be to contact your surgeon and/or anesthesiologist since they should be informed prior to the surgery about whatever it is you're taking that may or may not interfere with their operation or any medicine they give you during the operation. I don't know what type of surgery you're having, but in most cases the surgeon provides patients with pre and post op instructions. Best wishes to you!
