preparation h

My son is using it to shrink his waist I need someone to say that this is wrong ## how do u stop the sever pain of hemroids when nothing works ## Hi I usually don't break out, but recently I have broken out all over my face. A friend told me to try Preperation H ointment.. So I bought it today at Walgreens. Will it be safe to use on my face? ## No, Preparation H should not be used except for in the manner it is intended, which is to treat the pain, and itch associated with hemorrhoids. Its effects are not permanent, so it is not going to help anyone shrink their waste in any significant, and permanent matter, and it does not help treat acne. The regular formulation contains the active ingredient Hydrocortisone, which is a corticosteroid. The FDA lists its typical side effects as pos...

eye drop 5 ml dropping bottle (POLI INDUSTRIA CHIMICA S.p.a) ## This medicine appears to be from Italy. The active ingredients (in italian) are: IDROCORTISONE + NEOMICINA + NAFAZOLINA I dont completely know what those translate to. I think the first two ingredients translate to: - Hydrocortisone - Neomycin Not sure what NAFAZOLINA is. Hydrocortisone is used to treat itching and swelling. Neomycin is an antibiotic. Hope this limited info is helpful! ## I got these drops on a trip to Dominican Republic when I accidently poked my eye with a broken (still jagged) nail. I had tore my cornea and these drops were sent from heaven. I have the ingredients as 100 mL contain: hydrocortisone acetate 1g neomycin sulfate 0.5g naphthylmethyl imidazoline nitrate 0.1g After not being able to open my eye...

vari hydrocortisone what is it used for is it for the virgin

My vergina is itchy and I was given vari- hydrocortisone at the clinic ## My vagina is itching. Can I use Vari-Hydrocirtisone ## You should use it, if your doctor has instructed you to do so. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that is often used topically to alleviate itching. It may cause topical side effects, such as burning, redness, and skin flaking. Norina, have you visited a doctor? This may not help, if your itching is due to some other condition. ## Please help my virgin is itchy, with red lips.

Greenstone Generic Hydrocortisone

I am a 69 year old female looking for a pharmacy in or near Hamburg, NY that carries Greenstone generics and specifically hydrocortisone. My reason for requesting this better generic was that I have recently been diagnosed with Addison's Primary, after suffering and dealing with adverse effects since at least 2005 for two days, then again in 2012 for 9 days until getting what we now know was an incorrect diagnosis of SIADH. I researched the hydrocortisone generic Greenstone was far better to use. I could use some assistance in finding just who carries this brand of generic. Thank you. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? I'm sorry, but unfortunately, there is no listing of what pharmacy carries the product from any given manufacture, because such information is very dynamic, and may ch...

Yes, Hydrocortisone is often prescribed to help shrink hemorrhoids, it is even an ingredient in some suppositories and ointments. However, you should always check with your medical provider regarding the safety of you using it. It may not be safe to use if you have a medical condition, such as high blood pressure.

Hydrocortisone 7.5-325 is equal to methadone hcl 10?

I take methadone hcl 10 MG tab for Fibromyalgia. I have hydrocortisone Apap 7.5 325MG tab as a backup to help when the pain gets too intense. But I'm out of town and I'm out of methadone. I have hydroco. My question to you is, how many hydroco do I need to take a day to equal to the methadone. I'm take the methadone 4 times a day. ## There is really no way to compare the two and give you an equivalent dosage. It also doesn't contain Hydrocortisone, the narcotic opiate in it is Hydrocodone. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, it may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. How often have you been told to take the Hydrocodone? What are the prescribing instructions?

Is that the medication you usually take? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, and fluid retention. Are you on any other medications? Have your symptoms ever returned, before?

It is hydrocortisone/aceta 5-325 an it's a big pill. ## Hello, Rocky! How are you? The markings on prescription pills enable them to be identified, in case of emergency. The markings are logged with the FDA and enable you to identify the active ingredient, the dosage and the manufacturer of the medication. Imagine paramedics being called, because someone has overdosed and is unconscious, there are various pills scattered around them….in order to provide the proper treatment, they need to be able to discover what the person took. They can use various resources to look them up by the markings on them, to discover what the ...

hydrocortisone cream for hemoroid

Can my pharmacist substitute hydrocortisone 2.5% cream for Proctosol-HC? Prescription wrote for Proctosol-HC 2.5%, I received hydrocortisone 2.5% cream. ## Hello, Lynn! How are you? Yes, unless your doctor designates on the prescription that you must be given the name brand, the pharmacist actually has to substitute a generic in it's place, if one is available. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this cream as possibly including irritation, redness, burning and itching. Is there anything else I can help with?

Before or initially, there was no movement but now slight movement taking place. I took the injection because of gout pains. I need your advice.

what is the use of candid b cream

can the cream be used to soothe burning sensation in the rectal area... ## Hello, Miz! How are you? It is doubtful, this is an antifungal cream that is typically used to treat yeast infections or ringworm. Do you have piles? They can often cause anal burning, bleeding and pain. If so, then you will most likely need a hydrocortisone cream to help shrink them and alleviate the burning. Its typical side effects, as listed by the U.S. FDA, may possibly include skin redness, irritation and itching. Have you consulted your doctor?
