Effects of Althea pills on menstrual cycle

Hi! Its my first time to take althea pills. My OB prescribed it because of my PCOS and very irregular period. Just a few days ago, I have spotting. I thought i already have my period so I took my first pill, but then the spotting stopped. Can somebody enlighten me if it's normal or what? today, I experience headache and feels like to vomit. I am aware that these are the side effects. ## Hi, you mentioned you have PCOS. May baby ka na ba? I think its better if you'll ask your OB about your spotting that stopped. Yung akin kasi, nag-take muna ako ng Duphaston for 10 days twica a day and after that, nag-spot ako then tuloy tuloy yung mens ko. :) ## Hello, thanks for the advise. I have no baby po. (: I have not visit yet my OB due to complicated schedule of my work for 3 months up t...

large green and yellow tablet - RIKER

Large pill, one half green and the other (back) half yellow marked Riker ## I found a old pill bottle that was 3 different tones layers top side imprint said only says RIKERS yellow, thenbottom side was green and middle is white, the date said 1967, what is it. There is no identifation on the bottle of what the pills were only that said take 1-2 from every 4 hours for pain. whatis it? Just curios ## Hello, I was unable to find anything on these pills from a credible source but from what I gather "Riker" is the brand of medication and that they had multiple pills. Other members have claimed that pills similar to your description are pain killers of some kind and there are other types of "Riker" pills that were anti-appetite pills that were nearly similar to the illegal dr...

Norgesic Forte Availability

3M has discontinued making Norgesic Forte. I am trying to find out why as I have taken this medication for years? Additionally, I am trying to find out if any generic forms of aspirin, caffeine, & orphenadrine (Norgesic Forte) exist? Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. ## I can't find information on why it was discontinued, it could have happened for many reasons, such as lack of sales or safety issues. There was a generic available, however, if it still is, is also unknown. Have you talked to your doctor or pharmacy to see if the generic is still available? ## I also take Norgesic Forte for migraines and have for over 15 years. They stopped making it before and after 8 months or so they started again. Now, here we go again. So my pharmacist suggested I take orphe...

round pill half white half yellow

M on one side and 3354 on the other. Round pill half white and the other yellow. ## Hello, Maxiumus! How are you? So far, I've been unable to find anything that matches this description and with that dual coloring, I'm tending to suspect it might be something that's available over the counter. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? Can you also please double check those numbers for me and post back? Thanks! ## This tablet is an old Norgesic Forte (a light muscle relaxer with caffeine and aspirin). Norgesic Forte has not been manufactured for about 3 years, but this specific tablet is quite old since they changed to a blue and white capsule shape a several years before they discontinued production.

Decolgen or Nasatap Tablet

Is it safe to drink Decolgen or Nasatap tablet for my colds while taking Myrin-P Forte? ## Hi max, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between the active ingredients in Decolgen and Myrin-P Forte. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. While Decolgen and Myrin-P Forte are deemed to be safe together, I was not able to locate any interaction details on the active ingredient found in Nasatap. I hope the above info helps! ## Is it safe to take "norgesic forte or norgesic " and nasatapp together? Thanks ## Is Decolgen safe for controlled (by medication: Triamter, Amlodipine & Losartan) hypertension? If not, are there cold medicine safe for...

why was orphenedrine compound forte discontinued

I am trying to determine why orphenedrine compound forte was discontinued and if there is a replacement. ## You can still get Norgesic which is orphenedrine citrate, the same main ingredient as in Norgesic Forte. I took Norgesic Forte for my migraines and it worked wonderfully. When it was taken off the market, my dr switch me to regular Norgesic and had me take 2 excedrin along with it. This completes the ingredients that were in Norgesic Forte and give me the same result. ## Thank you for the information regarding orphenedrine and excedrine. What dosage orphenedrine are you using? ## Please correct me if I'm wrong, but apparently Orphenedrine is only available in dosages of 60 to 100mg; both of which can be taken every 8 hours according to the "general" dosing guidelines I...

why was it discontinued norgesic forte

I get pains down my leg usually when the weather changes from warm to cold and when it rains. I have always taken Norgesic Forte as soon as the pain starts and it always takes care of my pain. I can no longer get Norgesic Forte and the substitute my Pharmist told me to ask my Doctor for does not work. What other medications should I ask my Doctor for. I am in pain daily ## Hi Barney, Sorry to hear about your situation. I can't find any information on why norgesic was discontinued, but I think if you were to look into other Rx pain management options, there's always the usual list of narcotics to choose from; Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Percocet, Norco, Dilaudid, Opana, Fentanyl, etc...Your doctor would probably know better than anyone else, which of these medications might be most a...
