will lomotil show up in a urine test as oxycodone

I go to a pain clinic and get urine tested. Yesterday my doc told me that oxycodone showed up on my drug test. I'm not prescribed oxycodone and my doctor discharged me for consumption of oxycodone that wasn't prescribed. My question is this.... I'm prescribed Lomotil for IBS; I know it is a schedule v drug BUT can it show up as a schedule 2 drug in urine tests (such as Demerol/oxycodone) as a false positive? I read that info on the internet and would like to know if anyone else has had the same issue? And how do I go about proving to my doc who wants nothing to do with me and does not believe what I am telling him! Someone please help! Thank You! ## I have exact same prblm a and don't kno where go to prove I'm not taking oxycodone. And I was also discharged from pain...

What Time Of Day Should I Take Dexilant Dr 60 Mg

Is it better in the morning, afternoon of nithg before bed. ## Hi Sal, The dosing instructions for this medication state the following: "Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) comes as a delayed-release (long-acting) capsule to take by mouth. It is usually taken once a day. Dexlansoprazole may be taken with or without food, but it may provide more relief from after-meal symptoms if it is taken before a meal. Take dexlansoprazole at around the same time every day." It does not indicate a specific time of day to take the medication, so that decision is going to be up to you at your own convenience. If it's something that effects you the point of not being able to function at a normal level, then it may be best to take it at night or in the evening hours when you may be in the comfort of y...

White G250 with dagger imprint

Slightly off white pill, with a dagger in a circle on one side, and G250 on the other. ## The logo you're describing as a dagger, could it possibly be a sword in a circle? If so, then this is a Gaviscon tablet, it's used to help prevent or treat conditions such as heartburn, GERD and gastritis. It is an antacid. Learn more Antacid details here. ## I just found a kind of large round white pill in my house. No clue where it came from. It says G250 on one side, and on the other side it has a dagger. This is weird. Does anybody know what it is? Thank you ## I found the same pill in my house. It’s literally a dagger on one side. The other side says G 250. I have no idea where it came from. But I’m trying to figure this out too.

Lafaxid-10 Tablets Uses

Dear Sir, I am using Lafaxid-10 tablets (Lafutidine). Can you advice me what is the purpose of this medication. I have heart burn and contacted a gastrology specialist. He recommended taking Sompraz. I took it for 2 months. Last week I saw the doctor for my heart burn as well as burning in my stomach. I took this medicine after I had an endoscopy and am wondering what kind of foods I should be eating. Also can I take another tablet if I'm still breastfeeding my son? ## Lafutidine (INN) is a second generation histamine H2 receptor antagonist having multimodal mechanism of action and used to treat gastrointestinal disorders.

How to use Erceflora Bacillus Clausii

My 4 month old baby has diarrhea. The pediatrician has prescribed to take Erceflora 1 vial. What does that mean? Is this the whole vial at once? ## Hi Maine, sorry to hear about that, I know how nerve wracking it can be when a child at that young of an age has diarrhea. To answer your question, each vial should be a 5ml suspension. If that is the case then I am seeing a standard dose of 1-2 vials every 3-4 hours mixed in with another liquid such as milk, formula, or water. If you are still breastfeeding your baby you can mix it in with expelled breast milk. So yeah, 1 whole vial per dose is what is indicated. Is that in line with the doctor's instructions? There should be a label, printout, or packaging that came with the prescription. All in all Erceflora is a probiotic medicine wh...

Getting Alevian Duo over the counter

I’m seeking to purchase a product sold over the counter in Mexico which is called "Alevian Duo" or, if not sold in the USA, a product which has the same ingredients sold by a different name in the USA. ## Hmmm, if you aren't able to get it directly from Mexico, try searching for other products domestically by active ingredient: Looks like it contains Pinaverium Bromide and Dimethcone. Not sure what contains the exact same combination. "Pinaverium bromide was first registered in 1975 by Solvay Pharmaceuticals (now a division of Abbott Laboratories), and marketed globally using the brand names Dicetel and Eldicet. Generic pinaverium is available in South Korea under a trade name of Disten[1] and in Argentina as Nulite." - Wikipedia

Hi, I would like to know if anyone here who has Reflux / GERD / LPR tried Iberet Folic 500 b4? How does it feels after taking it? Does it induce the GeRD?

dexilant concerns

I was given a weeks sample and then a prescription for 60mg. The Dr. made a mistake on the prescription and put down 2xdaily which i fortunately caught before leaving the store. My concern is, a few days into the sample i developed a worsened dry cough, then caught what i thought was the flu, symptoms being respiratory, fever, severe aches in either joint or muscle. Now I am wondering if these are simply some side effects, i have read online it may well be. I am looking to find an alternative with less flu like side effects, any suggestions? thanx ## How are you feeling, now? Dexilant contains the active ingredient Dexslanzoprazole, it is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to help treat conditions, such as GERD, ulcers, and ga...

Where To Purchase Paregoric

I've used Paregoric for 15 years and can't find it. Is there anywhere in the U.S. or other countries where this can be purchased? ## I have been on paregoric therapy for at least 18 years myself. (not to mention Sandostatin, Lomotil & Pamine) Have had occasions the past few years when it was not available, and now I am told the manufacturer has discontinued it.

Opium Tincture

I am a colon cancer survivor. Due to losing 9" of large intestines and all but 1" of rectum, I experience severe diarrhea and resulting horrendous rectal pain. My oncologist prescribed Tincture of Opium. As the name implies, this is serious medicine. I nursed my first prescription so it lasted four years (Feb. 2006 to Feb. 2010), second prescription three years (Feb. 2010 to June 2013). When I picked up third prescription and got home with it, it did not look the same and the name was different, "C-Morphine 10 MG/1ML SUSP AKA-Opium Tincture #118". So silly me, I thought it was a generic. The first time I had an episode of diarrhea and the accompanying rectal pain, I was bedridden for hours before the pain eased off to an endurable ache. My Tincture usually worked within ...

Bloating, gas & abdominal pain

My husband has these symptoms all the time. Had been told by a GI doctor to use Gas-X. I also bought baby colic drops. Nothing seems to help much anymore. Had endoscopy & colonoscopy, both normal. ## He may have abdominal adhesions. They do not appear on any type of scans as they are transparent. I had a series of colonoscopies over a 5 year period. They came up normal until the last one where the gastro dr could not get the scope through my intestines. At that point they determined the adhesions had entangled my intestines. Imagine the roots of a plant but made out of transparent material. At the least you might run an online search for abdominal adhesions. Good luck. ## Bet he has a fungal infection. Yeast overgrowth. Only thing he can do is eat a low fod map diet. ## y over the c...
