nitro pill for bladder infectons

its black on one side and yellow on the other, it is a capsule and helps with bladder infections it is a prescription medicine ## I've had a total number of 6 bladder infections in the past two years and after my first bladder infection, in which my doctor prescribed me a white pill.

Gemtesa side effects?

I have both stress and urge incontinence. Just started taking Gemtesa this morning.

Ref: Medline Plus Gemtesa Have you experienced any side effects?

Availability of Dewitts pills for kidney and bladder

I bought them years ago when they were available, for bladder infection. Cleared me up in no time!! FANTASTIC!! Now I need them again for the same problem. ## Hello, Rick! How are you? I'm sorry about the infection. However, this product is no longer available. It would be best to see your doctor for a diagnosis and proper antibiotic prescription, if necessary.

Opinions

I was put on Oxybutynin almost a year ago. It started because I have severe Crohns disease and woke up one morning after an extended flare up unable to walk. I went to the hospital and they found a blood clot inside my heart blocking off 90% of blood flow (amazing, I know.) Due to that and quickly dropping blood pressure I was forced to stay in bed for 5 weeks, then I slipped into a coma for 36 days. Being in a coma for that amount time they had put in a Foley. I had to stay on a Foley for 10 1/2 months straight. After removing it they said my bladder would struggle so this drug would help. It's been about a year since then, I've been in a wheelchair ever since. I'm hoping this background info will help anyone of you with my question. I have trouble remembering how well this...

jevity and kidney stones

My nephew has a brain injury and doesn't communicate at all. He has a feeding tube and uses Jevity for nutrition. He continues having trouble with kidney stones. He can't tell us but we know he is suffering. When is passes them you see them in his urine bag. Is there anyone that knows if it causes kidney stones? ## Hello, Laurie! How is your nephew doing? It depends on what type they are. If they are calcium based, then yes, the Jevity might be contributing to them. However, they could also be unrelated and caused by something else. Is he on any medications regularly? Have the stones ever been analyzed by a lab to see what type they are? Has he been dehydrated, at all? ## He does not take any medication. Every now and then he gets a Lunesta to help calm him down when he seems ag...
