light blue large oval pill, with the number 93 on one side and the numbers 1118 on the other ## I'm pretty sure you mean 95/1118 NOT 93/1118. It is something called Lodine XL. It is an NSAID or non-immflammatory, non-narcotic pain reliever used for stiff joints, osteoarthritis or rheumatory arthritis. It can cause stomach upset and other GI problems if not taken with food. ## The tablet with the marking 1118 93 is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 600mgs of Etodolac, the active ingredient in Lodine. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. NDC: 00093-1118 Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can he...

light grey oval r599 ## I need to know what this pill is. It has one letter and 3 numbers. R599. Thank you VERY much :) ## This is a 400mg Lodine. It is a non-narcotic anti-inflammatory drug used for pain. It it like a prescription strength Aleve, IBProphen, Naproxen, etc. It is most commonly prescribed to patients with osteoarthritis, bone spurs, and people who have had orthopedic surgery. i.e. Back surgery, hip replacements, knee replacements, or any broken bones that have to be pinned and/or plated. It is an NSAID pain reliever, but again a non-narcotic anti-inflammatory drug. The grey coating is a time release coating, so therefore the pill should not be cut or crushed. ## That is correct, the active ingredient is 400mgs of Etodolac, it is a generic for Lodine. NDC: 00228-2599 It i...

How long does it take for Lodine to get out of your system? I've been having major anxiety after stopping this medication. ## This medication contains the active ingredient Etodolac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it is most commonly used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. However the times it takes to actually leave your system can be quite different from its half life, so they might not necessarily be equivalent. How long were you taking it, and what dosage were you taking? More information might help me provide you with an answer to your question. Can you please post back and clarify? Are you on any other questions?

I've been taking Lodine for 9 years now for arthritis. I would like to know does the medicine make your stomach expand? ## Hello, Nazras! How are you? This medication is listed as containing the active ingredient Etodolac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and they can cause fluid retention as a side effect in some people that take them. The FDA lists their other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. It would be best to have it checked out by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

Was given a steroid injection for right knee pain & was given lodine 2x daily & took glucosamine chondroitin with msm. Felt better in 2 weeks. Stopped taking med & suppliment but suddenly developed stiff achy muscles & joints, specifically backs of knees & neck. Have headache, fever, chills, shakishaking ness of breath (feels like I took in too much chlorine water @ pool-w/out swimming). Am normally healthy 59 yr old female, active swimmer, jogger & golfer. ## Hello, Menaches! How are you? Have you had this checked out by your doctor? It could be due to the steroid, but it's hard to say for sure. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, weight gain and acne. However, there is also a chance that it was due to the...
