Hi. I've given Dormonoct by my doctor 2mg for 6 mnths to use. I still don't 'switch off' at night and are fully awake at 3 or 4 o'clock, no matter how late or early I take my meds.

Bendectin and birth defects

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A good res...

SMZ TMP DS 800/160 Mg Tablet Shelf Life

How long is this med good to take? At what point does it begin to lose its efficacy? ## Hello, Terry! How are you? If it is in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, then the expiration date is one year from when it was filled for you, because that bottle can leave it exposed to the elements that cause degradation, so it begins to lose efficacy after that year. If it is in the original factory sealed container, then they are usually good for 4 to 5 years, until the seal is broken. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a bottle of bactrim 800.....I take it for MRSA break's from 2013, I've had a break out and need it quickly, new Dr ...

Am I Pregnant? Please help

I have been on the pill for over a year now and I always have a tendency to forget to take them over the weekend, so this past weekend I forgot to take Friday Saturday Sunday and today being Monday. I took them all today even though I know that I probably should have just taken only two, but anyway, that's besides the point. Usually when I miss two pills in a row I would get my period the following day. I have not yet gotten my period after missing three days. Should I be worried? What should I do? Help! ## Hello, Angie! How are you? Did you have intercourse on any of the days you skipped pills, or in the week after starting back up? If so, yes, there is a risk that you're pregnant. If you did not, then not starting is most likely due to taking so many at once and throwing off y...

lo loestrin - missed blue pill now on white

I missed my last blue pill yesterday and went to double up today but I'm supposed to take the white pill today. What pill do I take, or do I take both? ## This happened to me today! What did you end up doing? I believe it would be safe to take the blue and white together since they are nearly identical, chemically. I plan on doing just that, if you found a better option key me know! Lol ## You should do as your doctor, or the manufacturer instruct, which I believe in most cases is to double up.

I have been bleeding throughout the active pill for the past 3 weeks, next week I'm starting the inert pill so I will basically have bled for the whole month, is this a normal side effect on Oralcon?

Rem Cough Syrup

Info on a cough syrup called REM.It was manufactured, I believe by Maryland Pharmaceutical around the 1940's. I think it had a blue bottle with a orange circle with the name REM printed on it ## I'm sorry, but I can't find any information on this, which really isn't very surprising for that old of a product. There were also many differences back then for what were considered pharmaceutical products.
