Reme DHP compounded cream

This cream is used for pain as an anti-inflammatory. The common name is Reme-DHP (alt sp. D-HP). It is compounded by my Pharmacist as a cream/lotion and I think it contains: Topiramate Celecoxib 200mg Gabapentin Duloxetine 60mg Lidoderm (Lidocaine) Ethyl Alcohol 190 proof I was wondering if it is also marketed under any other names? ## Hi Karen, thanks for sharing these details. I wanted to ask if you can verify that this compounded cream does in fact contain Topiramate? The other ingredients make sense since they are either a topical anesthetic or have secondary uses for neuropathic pain. But I'm not seeing any off label uses listed by the FDA or NIH of Topiramate for treating pain. I could very well be missing something. May I ask how you ended up getting this specific cream presc...

After a increasing for one a day then two, The more i take them the more the headaches pain in increases is this a side effect. So i've cut the doae down to 1 a day but that doesn't change a thing. Any advice ## Hello, Wayne! How are you doing? Has there been any change?

High Topiramate dosage withdrawal

I recently had to change pain drs b/c mine closed his practice. I have been fighting w/my WC company to detox from the pain meds I take for the last 5 years b/c I'm having a lot of detrimental secondary side effects. The new doc's PA is having me come off of the Topiramate (1200 mg daily) to 400mg daily in one month. This seems a little crazy fast to me. When I requested to go slower, she accused me of being argumentative =/ Has anyone else had this kind of experience? I also am on Methadone 40 mg, down from 60 & Fentanyl patch, 50 mpg, down from 100. Any feedback would be welcome! ## Hello, Syd! How are you doing? There is a risk of seizures, if you cut down on the Topiramate too fast, so you are right to want to be cautious. Have you tried speaking to the doctor, rather th...

c one side 123

Small Round pill that has a C a on it on one side and 123 on the other side ## Hi Stevie, I'm just curious about what color your pill is? I located a small round orange pill with a C on one side and 123 on the other, which turned out to be 50mgs of Topiramate. Topiramate is an anticonvulsant/antiepileptic medication that's also used for migraines and nerve pain. Apparently "Cipla USA" is the manufacturer of this particular tablet. I'm assuming the that's what the letter C stands for in the imprint. However you can always double check by contacting this company directly via their customer service department at: 844-247-5287. They also have a customer service email for added convenience: [email protected] I hope this helps!

White pill with DZ 16?

I found a small white pill with a DZ / 16 on one side nothing on the other. Does anyone know what it is? ## My first guess is that this is either an over the counter or a foreign medication. I say that because I even checked with the US National Institute of Health (nih.gov) and nothing was coming up which matches the imprint DZ 16. May I ask what country you are in? "DZ" almost sounds like it could be a brand of Diazepam, but to my knowledge it does not come in a 16 mg dose. So it is most likely not the case. Do you have any other details such as packaging or where the pill was obtained? ## Soda pop - could you have possibly mean the imprint ZD 16? Please double check the pill and let me know because I can ID a pill exactly matching your description, only it is ZD instead of DZ...

topirol during pregnancy

What happened if I took 40 topirol during pregnancy? ## thanu, from what I understand this medication is a brand of Topiramate classified as an anticonvulsant. You will need to take this under your doctor's supervision because in the USA Topiramate is part of pregnancy category D (per the FDA). "Topiramate can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman." [1] I hope this helps and wish you good health! [1]
