oblong white pill pt 20

what is it and what is it used for? ## I found a pill with the markings on it that say PT20 on one side and on the other side it is scored and has the shape of a capsule on it with one end just a little bit larger than the other end.

54 343 pill

I thought that this pill was prednisone, the pill marked 54/343? ## Hello, Carol! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Roxane Laboratories and they list it as containing 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so this is a generic for Percocet. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, thank you very much.

prednisone and methadone interaction

I am on methadone and my doctor put me on 50mg of prednisone and I have only been on it for two days but every time I take it my legs and back start to hurt really bad and I start to feel like.mu methadone isn't working at all could it be because I am.on a big MG of prednisone ## Hello, Trish! How are you? Prednisone can reduce the efficacy of Methadone, so that likely explains the problem. Is this doctor aware that you're on Methadone? Other typical side effects of Prednisone may also include nausea, headache, insomnia, irritability and acne. Methadone is classified as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## I take oral methadone for pain management and recently had ...

Does Prednisone affect Methadone?

I'm to start prednisone 20 mg today and go down. Now I'm on 40 mg methadone. Should I spread it out cause I'm seeing different posts about it messing with the methadone. I won't get sick will I? ## Hello, Julie! How are you? Yes, Prednisone may reduce the efficacy of your Methadone, so you may experience some withdrawal effects, according to the FDA, they may include nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea and rebound pain. Separating them by a few hours might help, but isn't likely to change much. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I thank you for getting back to me. I have not had any problems with the two except headache and some diarrhea but that's gone. ## How do you know this?

I have been using persivate for almost a year and I wasn't aware of the side effects, but now my skin is darker, I have lots of pimples and rashes, it is itchy and dry...

Had MRI and blood work and don't want to take until I get results. I am limping but x Ray's taken look good. What else can I take beside prednisone ## Hello Mcfer, Just to clarify, are you asking what medication you can take in addition to the prednisone or are you asking what kinds of medication you can take as an alternative to the prednisone? I'll try to answer both to the best of my ability for the sake of timeliness. It's much harder to list a bunch of medication that you can take instead of just listing the ones that are commonly known to interact with it. According to every day health the following ...

comneslone

Is comneslone 20 actually prednisone ## Hi Boa, Unfortunately there are no drugs or medications that match the name "comneslone", so I was unable to get any results searching for it. Is this something you ordered from overseas? I saw another thread on here a while back, where someone ordered prednisone, but was actually sent something called comneslone instead. However like I said, it doesn't appear to be a real drug name. So unless it's an uncommon medication from a foreign country, I see no other reason why it wouldn't turn up in any search engines. Does anyone else recognize this drug? ## Yes Comneslone is Prednisolone IP 20. Manufactured by Combitic Global Caplet Pvt. Ltd. It's Generic. ## No it isn't. I got caught with this. am very familiar with Prednis...

tapering off predisone

Hi, my teenage daughter has been taking 40mgs for a little over a month. The doctor is now tapering her off. We are currently at 25. In the process she has had pseudoseizures and passing out. Could this be caused from the prednisone??? She has had every diagnostic done so it's not epilepsy. She suffers from GI problems. She had a colonoscopy done in dec and had inflammation in her colon. Thank you. ## Hello, Alicia! How is your daughter doing? Fainting can be due to withdrawal syndrome, which can occur in some people, even if they are tapering off of steroids and aren't stopping them abruptly, as reported by the NIH. However, after research, I've not seen anything about pseudoseizures. Is she on any other medications? Has she ever experienced them before? ## No she hasn'...

ambophyllina

Bought in Mexico, so in spanish ambophyllina must be. a small white pill with a line on one side down the middle. ## I use Ambophyllina. It is prescribed to me by a Doctor in Mexacali, Mexico. I use it to contol lung problems. What are the risks associated with the pill? ## My mother-in-law has taken this pill (Ambophyllina) for 20 years and it really helps her lung problems. She recently had to go without for 6 weeks and she has had a terrible time with really severe asthma. Today she was able to take the pill again and we are hoping the asthma attacks are over. ## Sorry, foreign pills are not regulated like American items are, and finding information on them is very difficult.

Prednisone and Soma

I just started a 10 day round of 10 mg of Prednisone 2x a day and I usually take either a Soma or an Alprazolam to help me sleep. Can I still take one of the meds to help me sleep? ## Hello Karen, Unfortunately if the doctor has not instructed you to continue taking the medication I would advise against it. Prescription medication should only be taken as the doctor has instructed. What I can tell you is that from what I read on the NIH drug interaction site predisone and soma do not have any listed interactions. Again I advise that you keep your doctor informed of all the medication that you will be taking and not to take chances with your health. I hope this information helps.

Prednisone double dose

Hi. I was prescribed 20mg of prednisone and took 40mg by accident. What should I do? ## Hello, Mariana! How are you? You should check in with your prescriber, to be sure, but in most cases, you would just continue taking it as prescribed. The FDA classifies the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, weight gain, acne and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My Prednisone dosage was taken twice in one day instead of once. Should I skip tomorrow’s dose, which would be dose #2, then continue with the third dose? ## My boyfriend took 80mg of Prednisone yesterday instead of 40 mg and I don't know what to do.

watson 5443

round orange pill with dan 2 times on one side and 5443 on one side ## Your question is a little confusing because in one place you have Watson 5443, and in another you have Dan Dan 5443. I am assuming it is Dan Dan 5443 because the other characteristics you list match. This is an anti-imflammatory, steroidal medication called Prednisone. It is used to reduce the imflammation in the joints, lungs, heart and many other types of imflammation. Side effects include ravenous hunger, insomnia, dizziness, among other side effects. ## Watson purchased the rights to manufacture this medication, so they are now listed as the manufacturer, and one of their licensed distributors is McKesson Packaging Services. NDC code: 63739-0588 They do list it as containing 20mgs of Prednisone, which is a steroi...
