Iron infusion and hair dying

I recently had an iron infusion for low iron levels. A short time later I went to have my hair cut and dyed. As the girl was applying the dye, my hair started to turn purple. It was washed out and I was unable to complete the hair dying process. Does anyone have and information on the effect of iron infusions on the hair and how long will it remain in the hair? ## There is a chance that it was actually due to your low iron levels, rather than the iron infusion. Hemoglobin provides your hair with its red tones, so if you are low in iron, it can wash your natural hair color out to a different shade, which can alter how a dye works on your hair. If you've been dying your hair all along, you may not have even noticed a change, since anemia only affects your natural color. It may take a ...

Fake V 3601 Yellows

I recently got some v3601 yellows. The outside is a lighter shade of yellow, with patches of white showing. When broken in half I could make out obvious specks of white inside the pill. Not shiny crystals like usual, but actual white specks. Is this normal? I have some pictures but cant post it from my phone. Otherwise the pills are the same size and have the same inscriptions on the pills. ## Those are fake. You should see the white crystals always. ## I think with any pill not received from a licensed pharmacy, there's always the risk of having counterfeits that can resemble it so closely, that the only way to truly verify its legitimacy would be to have it analyzed by a lab or drug panel. Generic norco/vicodin such as this is pretty commonly prescribed though, and I doubt pain ma...

And what's the shade of yellow, is it very pale, so it's almost white or is it a very obvious yellow? I've found a few possibilities, but more details will help to narrow it down. ## I found a round yellow pill with one side that has 75 on it and the other side nothing , what is it ?

Bruising in groin area

Is it normal to have bruising after having a stent put in through the groin? My husband had this procedure done a week ago. ## Hello, Lady d! How are you? Yes, bruising can occur after almost any invasive medical procedure, including dental extractions and actual full surgery. You can read more about it in the details provided by the NIH. Anything that requires the tissue to be cut, ripped open or manipulated in any unusual manner can result in bruising. Has it changed, any? A healing bruise should gradually go from the darkish color to a pale yellowish or greenish shade, which denotes improvement. If you're concerned, then please speak to his doctor.

Light Blue pill oblong , only number" 131" on pill ## Hi Pattay, There don't appear any photographs on the internet that depict what shade of blue it is or the placement of the imprint, but the closest description I'm seeing to yours is a blue capsule-shaped pill with a marking of 131, that reportedly contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen + 25mgs of Diphenhydramine hydrochloride (Also known as Tylenol PM); which is used for the temporary relief of headaches, minor pain, & sleeplessness.

Pill is reddish-pink Has a fancy f on one side Is triangle with rounded edges ## Hello, Hallie! How are you? Does it or does it not have an imprint?

round orange pill, "no | vo" on one side and "0.2" on the other

It's round. It's a slightly dull shade of orange, closer to orange than peach if you ask me and far from red/beige/yellow so yeah, it's orange. It's got what I think you'd call slightly beveled edges. One side says 0.2 and the other side has a vertical line down the middle, to the left of which it says "no" and to the right it says "vo" so it looks like ( no | vo ) and I suspect that it's something prescribed for anxiety but it could be anything. ## Don't let the topic fool you, the "no" and "vo" are all lower case. The N and V were automatically capitalized in the topic. The side with lettering says "no" on one side of the line and "vo" on the other side, all lower case. The flip side has a large 0.2 and no lin...

The pill has two shades of blue. On one half of the pill it has the letter "n" and on the other side it has the numbers "180". It's one of those pills that you break in half and pour out some powder or something. Do you have any idea what it is?

What is a red pill Kali 083

I have a red pill like a football, one side says KALI and the other 083. What is it? ## what is kali 083 ## Wow…what horrible coloring! That's just my opinion looking at the images, but I consider them quite awful…and for anyone else looking, there are actually 3 different shades of this same tablet and the manufacturer calls all of them orange… However, one is bright red, one is more of the brownish color similar to the original Advil tablets and the other is much closer to orange. As to what it contains, this is a generic for Ultracet, 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 37.5mgs of Tramadol, it is a centrally acting analgesic. Since the Tramadol is derived from a narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and may cause si...

Whole Pill Is Blue Capsule 60 Mg Ap

a capsule turquoise blue one end of capsule has the markings AP. Other end 60 ## I may have located a match to your pill; however my finding is not listed as being turquoise, but rather a darker shade of blue. To confirm this, I would ask if you can run a google images search for "blue capsule TAP 60". If this is your pill, you probably noticed that the marking "AP" is actually "TAP", sort of fused together in the logo. This capsule contains 60mgs of Dexlansoprazole Delayed Release; which is used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The pill itself is manufactured by Tap Pharmaceuticals. Does this appear to be the pill you are describing? Please post back if you have any additional questions or comments regarding this. ## That is it I said turquoise b...

Peach /orange Oblong pill

Has 55 or S5 imprint - peachy orange color ## Hi kjm, Based on the description provided, I may have located a match to your pill. The only problem is, my source does not show a photo of this pill; just the description "S5" being the imprint on a red oval pill (the shade of red cannot be verified). I'll go ahead and post this pill information below so you can see if it rings a bell or not: S5 is identified as Simvastatin (40mg). It is used to control hypercholesterolemia (elevated cholesterol levels) and to prevent cardiovascular disease. The pill itself is noted to be manufactured by Accord Healthcare, but I would actually consider contacting them directly, just for verification of this and possibly obtaining a photo of the pill: You can...
