Round brown/orange pill with 57 on one side & blank on other

Brownish orange round pills with the number 57 on one side the other is blank can't find it anywhere hope you can ## Hi Sonja, Based on the description provided, I located a round brown pill with "57" on one side and blank on the other to be a 200mg Motrin (Ibuprofen) tablet. (NDC 30142-235, among others) This is an OTC non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used for treating fever and mild to severe pain. Apparently it's distributed by many different companies. I hope this helps! ## I found a reddish brown pill with 57 on one side and blank on the other. Any suggestions? ## Does it make you sleep? ## Ibuprofen is not specifically indicated as a sleep aid, it's a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. However, if pain is keeping you up for instance, i might help to relie...

pills found from 1960

Dapricil was used for mentstural cramps in the 1960’s. Would like to know information about he content of the drug. It was a very long time ago. I remember feeling high when taking it and didn’t do much for the pain. Then dapricil was replaced by another similar pill the name was edricil. Not sure of the spelling. Thank You ## I used this drug when I got bad cramps during my cycle! Did not misuse it! When I took this drug I actually functioned and concentrated so much better! Was able to get chores done and worked more efficiently! Was wondering what it was made of? ## Funny how we can remember this medication It never helped with my severe cramps but it was a mood lifter. Really useless. When Motrin Became available my prescription, that was the answer for me.

Pill 3977

Found a round white pill made by Rugby with the numbers 3977 on it. Trying to figure out what it was for. ## Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? I am not finding a pill with 3977 on it in any of the U.S. prescription drug databases. Does it also say Rugby on it? There is a good possibility that it is something available over the counter or a foreign medication. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## Pill clearly says RUGBY on it on one side. Numbers 3977 on the other side. Checked PDR's as far back as the 80's but no listing. Why I posted. thanks for any help. ## I found the same pill and had the same question. ## I have same pill - was in an envelope labeled Motrin- from years ago when Motrin was only available via prescription- 1980s or early 90s. I just took it for mus...

Endometrial Biopsy Pain Reducing Meds

My Obgyn claimed the endometrial biopsy I'll receive will only be "slightly uncomfortable" and take motrin. 1 I cannot take NSAIDs at all. I have IBS and it'll only make my stomach hurt. That'll be an added issue as my anxiety levels are getting worse as this biopsy approaches. Doing in office I cannot be put under say she did during a D&C which I know someone had her biopsy performed during the D n C. The problems I'm having are identical to hers where my periods are still regular (come monthly) except I began bleeding so heavily that it became unbearable. First day I cannot even walk around. It's so heavy and clots included. This D&C In her case alone stopped her heavy bleeds and biopsy - felt nothing obviously being under. She claims I won't ne...

Small, round tan/light brown pill, has 001 on one side and the other side is blank

I came across a strange pill and I've been trying to figure out what it is for an hour now. It's small, about the size of a Motrin. It's colour is tan-ish / very light brown. One side is completely smooth with no imprints but the other side has a split and 001 on it. I'm positive it's 001 and not 100 because the 1 has the little "tophat". If anyone can tell me what this is that'd be great. ## dark round pill with p97 dARK BROWN LINE ONSAME SIDE NOTHING ONN OTHER

norco 5/325 and motrin - can I take it together?

I am taking norco 5-325 for back pain, it's BAD. My RX says 1 pill every 8 hrs. I took one 4 hours ago, but not a dent in the pain. Can I take another one? Also, can I supplement with two Motrin? ## You should not take more than your doctor has prescribed, you should follow their dosing instructions, including for the use of Motrin. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Are you on any other medications?

oblong orange pill mot

Found an orange oblong pill that has "mot" on it. Kind of odd to be Motrin 1b as it is usually stamped on the pill. ## Motrin was the first thing that came to my mind as well. But even if it might not be "Motrin Ib" I'd still speculate as to whether it's another form of Motrin, such as this one from CVS (but without the full imprint intact depending on its condition?): Motrin.jpg How do the letters "mot" appear on your tablet? -Are they inked on or embedded? Sometimes various dollar stores also have their own unique brand of OTC meds that bear different markings than what you might find at general pharmacies. Just something else to consider I suppose. Wish I could've been of more help!

can i take motrin and tylenol with lyrica

need more for pain ... lyrica, and wellbutrin recently increased, and also take paxil. Lots of new pain. Can I take motrin and tylenol and not permanently damage an organ over the next month ... see doc then. ## There are no interactions listed for them, however, the Motrin and Tylenol are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, so they really should not be taken together. If the Lyrica is not helping your pain, then you should contact your doctor immediately, you may need a dosage adjustment or a different medication. Have you talked to your doctor, yet? ## Verwon, I don't know how you became a moderator for giving wrong information. Tylenol is NOT a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. ## I'm taking lyrica (50mg twice a day) the nerves pin reduced 70% but I still muscles pain,...

medicine that would cause a positive blood test for methamphetamine

Please someone help. I was going for a job and they tested my blood and it came back positive for methamphetamine. I don't know how to get nor want to know. Please this is my livelihood. I am prescribed a lot of antidepressants, headache meds, allergy meds and chantix, plus over the counter motrin in the morning and generic at night. Please help. I cant sleep or eat. I have a family. ## jj, sorry to hear about your challenges. If you can show your medical records and that you are prescribed various medications it should help - also, sometimes allergy medications (even over the counter ones) contain pseudoephedrine and may affect any lab work that you submit. Be sure to get your documentation in order and you should be fine. May I ask who ordered the lab work? Was it your primary phy...

is motrin 800 a narcotic and how often can it be taken

Can Motrin 800 be taken an hour after the first one is taken. My mom is 82 and wants to take them 2 one one hour and the other an hour later ## Hello, Sharon! How is your mom? No, Motrin contains the active ingredient Ibuprofen, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and they need to be spaced about 8 hours apart, unless her doctor directs otherwise. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

123 oblong white

was told it was motrin 800mg,but not sure. ## Hi ann, Your assumption was correct. This white oblong pill is identified as Ibuprofen (800 mg); the active ingredient in Motrin. This specific pill is manufactured by Marksans Pharma Inc. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used for relief of symptoms of arthritis, primary dysmenorrhea, fever, and as a mild pain reliever. Learn More: Ibuprofen Details I hope this helps! ## You are all wrong! This is this drug that falls in the Statin class. It is often used or is the generic form of Lipitor.

severe tooth pain

I have a tooth infections waiting on my antibiotics but they gave me 800mg Motrin but its not helping at all!! what should I do ????? PLEASE HELP!!! ## Hello, Ashely! How are you? Has it eased off, yet? Motrin isn't very strong, so you may not see much improvement, until a few days, after you start the antibiotics. The FDA classifies it as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation.

side effects of garapentin

I just want to know what are the side effects of the drug garapentin. I also take Motrin & want to know of any known interaction between the two. I took garapentin for the first time last night and got so dizzy it was like having vertigo. thanks for any help you can give to me. ## I am taking gabapentin 300mg. three times a day.

Can I give my 2 1/2 yrs a 1/2 cepacol

On the package it says not to give under six , so basically I was thinking if I would brake in 1/2. do u think that would help home? He has a bad cough and later on his nose was runny. I have started giving him baby Motrin. ## Hello, Krissy! How is he doing? Please, do not give him anything without a doctor's approval, not even half of one. It is far too easy to overdose a child of that age. It would be best to take him to his pediatrician and let them prescribe an appropriate treatment, if one is necessary. I understand that you love him and want to relieve this, so he is no longer miserable, but it just isn't worth the risks. I felt the same, when my son was small… I even still feel that way sometimes, although he's 20, now. LOL Does he have a fever, at all?

I start taking redotex for almost 5 days. My whole body hurt and I have a severe headache. is this normal from the beginning? I take motrin it help. I need to take motrin 3 times day because of my whole body hurt and my headache also. Does anybody feel that way from the beginning. ## Hello, Missy! How are you? You need to see your doctor and inform that you were taking Redotex, to have yourself checked out. The FDA has issued a warning on this and banned the import of it, due to the fact that it was found to contain a dangerous combination of undeclared drug ingredients, including benzodiazepines (which risk being habit forming and causing seizures upon withdrawal) and amphetamine like stimulants. Is there anything else I can help with?
