sp round white steroid pill

My boyfriend is taking a small, round, white pill, with SP printed on one side and an un scored, blank back. He says they're "legal steroids." Pretty much need to know if I should be dumping his ass. ## Hello, Beebee! How are you? I haven't been able to find a listing for anything that matches this description, so I can tell you that it isn't a U.S. prescription medication. And that is the only way to legally be taking anabolic steroids in the U.S. They are only available under certain very strict medical criteria. This is most likely some type of over the counter product, but at this time, I'm not sure what it contains. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## If it had SP with no o...

Constella for constipation causing Diverticulitis

I have been on Constella for 4 days. I take it in the AM 2 hours before eating. I know it is a no, no but I have just one cup of coffee and boom...I have diarrhea. However, it is mostly water without much substance...sorry for the graphics! It lasts for a few hours and then stops completely for the day. I do drink water all day and take a thermos with me when I go out. This repeats itself exactly for the next few days while taking it. I have no feeling of having to go after the diarrhea stops. I also take Restoralx (Miralax) every evening. Constipation has been a battle for me for years and years. I am a senior now. If this pattern persists I will call my doctor. Will this diarrhea taper off? ## Does the diarrhea ever tapper off? I spoke to the doctor and he reduced the dose to every ot...

Taking miralax after the expiration date

Can you use MiraLax after the expiration date? And how much to use for an adult single use? ## Hi Dani, I haven't come across any specific details pertaining to the safety of this medication after it's expiration date. However, I think it really depends on how long has it been since the product expired? If it hasn't been too long, it might still be functional enough to get the job done, but you're still probably better off getting a new batch if you want to play it safe. Regarding dosing instructions, the usual adult dosing for Miralax is one cap full (approx. 17g) taken once daily or as needed. Apparently the measuring line on the bottle cap itself is supposed to be used as a guideline for taking a single dose (which also measures out to about 1 large tbsp). Lastly, it ...

New Insuance denied my Linzess RX B/C I don't have cancer!

I have been on Linzess for over a year now, and happy enough with the results. I had been covered through Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC. There was NO problem getting the rx filled. Now I am covered through BC/BS of Minnesota. I received a letter denying the rx stating that I am not eligible because I don't suffer from active cancer pain! What the heck are they talking about?!?! Has anyone else run into this kind of issue with their insurance?? ## Appeal it and they might. Your doctor may have to do a prior auth, but I would fight it. I have before with other meds and other insurance and it works. ## Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I have already appealed and I have still been denied. ## That is very odd, since Linzess is used to treat IBS with constipation, and idiopathic chroni...

linzess prescribed to help with weight loss

Hi! My Dr. Gave me linzess to help with weight loss. HOWEVER, I am reading all the posts about horrible weight gain, I am confused!!!!!!! ## Hello, Twinckle! How are you? This medication isn't intended to be used for weight loss, it's actually used to treat chronic constipation. It can cause diarrhea, which could result in weight loss for some, as reported by the FDA, but it can also cause abdominal bloating and distention, which has caused many to think they were gaining weight on it. Can anyone that's been on it chime in with their experiences? ## Hello, Linzess can certainly be prescribed for the purpose of weight loss! People do not understand how medications can treat multiple...repeat MULTIPLE conditions, diseases and illnesses. Botox is FDA approved to also treat head...

Rebamipide Dosage Timing

Is Rebamipide is best taken with meals or with out meals? ## Need to know if Rebamipide is Prescription Drug or an OTC? ## I didn't find any specific instructions listed, but since it is supposed to help GI problems, it is probably best to take it just before a meal, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. NIH studies list its typical side effects as possibly including constipation, bloating, nausea, and vomiting. Victior, it may vary depending on where you live. Can you post back with your general location? ## Should Rebamipide be taken before or after meals?

can i take MiraLax after the expiration date

Can I take Miralax when it expired on 11-2015? If not, how do I dispose the of contents, down the sink or the toilet? ## Hello, Margie! How are you? Liquids can go bad, once expired and may make you ill, if you use them, as reported by the NIH, so it would be best to dispose of them. As to the method of disposal, you should leave it in the sealed container and dispose of it with your regular household trash. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How long will the laxative Purelax work if it expired 12/15 ## I've never known Miralax to be a liquid so your answer isn't really an answer. Looking to find out if it's still safe to take when it expired over a year ago. Thank you, ## I took some from 2014 and this 2018 and it worked just as usual. In today’s marketing cr...

Round orange pill 0805 and AV on the back

Found this pill in my kid's pocket before doing laundry and we want to know what kind of pill it is? ## Hi Tammy, Does your pill look anything like the one depicted in the following NDC link? - 0603-5482 Is the V cursive-like? - If so, this may be the logo for Qualitest (formerly known as Vintage Pharmaceuticals). Is there a score line separating the 08 | 05? Thanks for any feedback you might have on this. I haven't located any other pills that resemble it more closely as of yet. ## It's actually Senna, a stool softener. I was prescribed this after giving birth to my son. I found it in my house a year and a half later and was looking it up online by the numbers and initials when I found your post. ## Found light orange with 0805 one side and AV on the other.Can you tell me w...

Linzess weight gain

I was just prescribed Linzess for my IBS. I am wondering if others on this medicine have experienced wieght gain? ## Actually, since it usually causes gastrointestinal side effects, including diarrhea, it's usually known to cause the opposite problem of weight loss. You should also be informed that some people develop serve, ongoing diarrhea, so you need to watch out for that and contact your doctor if it happens. Learn more Linzess details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've gained 4 pounds in 3 days since I started taking Linzess. I am on weight watchers so I count points so I know it is not my food intake. I don't usually fluctuate in pounds so I think it's the new meds. I am still taking Miralax but it doesn't seem like either are working. I loo...

72 mg Linzess experiences

Anyone taking the 72mg dose of Linzess, and what are your experiences with it? I just filled the prescription and want to try, just worried. Thanks. ## Hello Drew, According to the NIH linzess has the following adverse reactions. For all of these only 10% of users experienced these symptoms. - Diarrhea - Abdominal pain - Flatulence - Abdominal distension - Viral Gastroenteritis - Headache It's smart and understandable to be cautious when taking new medications. If you feel that any of your symptoms are out of the ordinary or too severe for you to handle please consult your doctor as you may be having an allergic reaction. Have a wonderful day and I hope this helps.

Suprep

Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

Excessive Bloating on Linzess

I've been on Linzess for about a week now and the bloating is unbearable. The medication has produced several BM's and I had severe diarrhea the first two days on the medication. The diarrhea has subsided but the bloating continues to get worse. I is painful and it looks like I am 6 months pregnant. My clothes don't fit anymore and I can't find any helpful solutions to the distention. Has anyone had these similar symptoms and do they typically go away? ## Hello, Kristy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. Yes, that has been reported by many people and is a known side effect as listed by the FDA. You may also experience weight changes, nausea and dizziness. Can anyone that's taken in chime in on whether or not it's gone away as your bod...

Suprep Bowel Prep Kit

I am looking for a manufacture coupon that will help me pay for my Suprep Bowel Prep Kit. I am 70 years old and can not afford this medication. Can you help me? ## I've done some searching, but I am sorry, I didn't find anything for patient assistance. Since this is a laxative that is used to to clean out the colon in preparation for certain tests and medical procedures, it is generally a once time purchase and most manufacturers of these products don't offer assistance by way of programs or coupons, because it isn't consider life sustaining and isn't something you are going to be using regularly. There are, however, other alternatives on the market, most doctors just prefer this one, because it is new and contains no sodium phosphate. Have you tried asking your doct...

Methadone and Miralax mix

I need to take my methadone and I just drank some miralax without thinking, who thinks it won't matter if I take it now? ## Hello, Based on my research from umm.edu, there are no drug interactions listed between Miralax (Polyethylene Glycol) and Methadone. So my theory is that you shouldn't experience any problems with taking the two together. However it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to still give your doctor a call for a second opinion, if you're looking for further validation. I hope this helps! ## Can I take Miralax while I'm on methadone càn someone help me ! Thank u ## Definitely. I'm on methadone but i take a double dose 2x a day. the regular dose is not for drug constipation. You may have to take it a few days for it to work.Good luck

How long does it take for miralax to leave the gut

My 8 yro son took miralax for 10 days for his constipation. He stopped taking it 2 days ago and is still having very loose bowel movements almost hourly. How long will this continue? I'm at my wits end, his bottom is getting very sore. ## In my opinion, it would be good for him to try and consume more binding foods, such as bananas, to help slow down and regulate his bowel movements. It's difficult to say how long one can experience loose bowel movements, since everyone reacts differently to these types of medications. Was the Miralax dose taken exactly as indicated on labeling (it says 'once each day' on Miralax's webpage)? I only ask because it does sound like he had a bit too much. I know this response is a day after your post, so I do hope that he is feeling bett...
