Sulfur & Cream of Tartar Wafer

Years ago, given to each of us once per day for keeping mosquitos from biting & if they bit us, would not cause problems. ## Where can I find Sulfur and Cream of Tarter Wafers? I took them as a kid and never had any problems with bug bites and ticks and we played in the woods every day. As I got older I never had acne. I wanted to have my daughter try it, but can not find them. They were a little flat wafer about the size of a quarter and chewable. The taste was not bad at all....and a somewhat sweet. Can someone help me find this product if it exists? ## Linda, glad to see that someone besides I remembers these wafers. I still have not found them anywhere but I will keep checking smalltowm pharmicies & hopefully locate them somewhere!!! I just know they were wonderful! ## I fou...

Is Gimalxina Amoxicilina 500 mg from Mexico Counterfeit? i.e. Placebo?

I have taken amoxicilina many times during my life; bought in the US and in Honduras. This last week I got a bottle of 60 capsulas while in Cozumel, to complete my antibiotic treatment (I lost the previous amoxi I was taking). I am very familiar with the smell and taste of amoxicilina and penicillin. I open the capsules when I take it, it tastes bad, and has a unique taste & smell (also in urine). The current bottle I just purchased, red & white capsulas, is a white powder with NO taste nor smell. Furthermore, it appears to have no affect on my sinusitis, and NO odor in urine. This is the first Amoxi I have ever taken that is like this (no taste & no odor. So common sense tells me I HAVE BEEN ROBBED. If this is COUNTERFEIT Amoxi, we need to STOP ITS SALE.

Penicilina 500 Mg

Hello, my husband, 52 yro, 165 pds, woke up this morning with his cheak swollen from his tooth. I bought a bottle of Penicilina Nipecil 500 mg in mexico recently. What is the correct dosage and length he should take? Thank you for your help. ## I believe Nipecil might just be their brand name for it, but it seems the active ingredient is just Penicillin, which is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections. Learn more Penicillin details here. The main problem, however, is that while it can treat the infection, it will not help with whatever underlying problem is causing the tooth to get infected, so it will likely just keep returning. He needs to see a dentist to have the tooth taken care of as soon as possible, they will also let him know what the best antibiotic...

Pota vi kin Uses and dosage

Can I take these for a sore throat infection and if so how many tablets per day? ## Well, since what you typed doesn't actually stand for anything, I believe you've confused it, I'm assuming what you're referring to is Penicillin V with Potassium? If so, it is an antibiotic used to treat various types of infections. However, the length of treatment and dosing depends on the type and severity of infection being treated and this site is not medical professionals to make a guess at that. Not all sore throats are caused by infections and using these if it isn't creates problems. Have you seen a doctor for this? ## Pota-Vi-Kin (active ingredient Penicillin V) is used to treat mild to moderately severe infections due to penicillin G-sensitive microorganisms.

penicillin vk 500mg tabs

penicillin ## I have recently been prescribed Penicillin Vk 500 mg from a doctor. I was in SO much pain from my peridontal disease,(from my infection under my teeth), that the pain was excruciating. i went to an emergency hospital instead of a dentist.

Calvepen Tabs 666mg

Prescribed for a sore throat ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does.
