Blue pill A324 on one side, R and a thin crescent moon on the other

Can someone please help me identify these pills? They are blue-speckled pills with an R and a thin crescent moon on one side and A 324 on the other with a score between the A and 324.... Thank you ## Hey I've got the same pills. They were marketed as 10mg Valium, however I don't trust them and rightly so as I can't for the life of me trace them. The closest I got from searching was that they are black market, so could have benzodiazepine in them or none at all. A pal of mine was willing to try one and he said he felt a short lived effect. His UDS came up positive for benzos but to be fair he did take a 20mg temazepam too. I know it's not much to go on. I don't recommend black market pills as you don't know how much of the active ingredient is in each pill. I'...

What to take for premenopause while on Warfarin?

Is anyone going through menopause and on warfarin? If so, what do you take and does it work? Many thanks ## I didn't find any interactions listed between Warfarin, and Black Cohosh, which helps many women with various perimenopause symptoms, including hot flashes. I've been taking it for mine for awhile, now, and it has really helped a lot, it also mostly eliminated my night sweats. While some places also suggest Soy Isoflavones as a helpful supplement, the FDA warns against taking it with Warfarin, since it can also cause increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising. What types of symptoms have you been experiencing?

Coumadin vs warfarin

My mom was on coumadin for many years but then her insurance company told her she had to take warfarin as this is the one they would pay for. Is there really any different in these two drugs? It seems to me that she has been having more problems with the warfarin (keeping this medication at the right level) than the coumadin. I was told they were the same medications and do the same. I just wanted to know if some people have difficulties taking warfarin vs coumadin??? Thanks. ## No, they work exactly the same for me. I have been taking one or the other for 3 1/2 years because of 2 pulmonary embolisms. I take 10mg a day. At times I go up and down but have been steady for a couple months now on warfarin. Food will change the way it works. Salads and some other greens really mess things up...

diatomaceous earth with warfarin

my husband takes warfarin daily, we are wondering if taking diatomaceous earth to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure with his warfarin would effect anything? ## Unfortunately, this is just a supplement product, so it has not actually been checked for interactions with prescription drugs. Thus, the best advice I can give would be that he check with his doctor or pharmacist, before taking it. Learn more Warfarin details here. When taking Warfarin, one's INR can be very touchy, so it's always best to be cautious. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Verwon supplements are so popular today they should know if DE would interact with warfarin um I mean RAT poison..........

Pink Pill A 338 and crescent moon and R on other

When I got my rx filled, they were dispensed as benzo's. I refuse to take them until I find out more about them as I've never had pink benzo tablets before. One side has A at the top, then 338 underneath, the other side is a crescent moon (perhaps crescent brand?) with a R next to it? ## These are warfarin 1mg tablets in UK. These could be fatal i.e. bleed to death. ## Yes, that’s exactly it.

warfarin rebound ?

I want to quit warfarin due to potential and actual bleeding . Had a two day nose bleed and still going. I was given warfarin because of afib. since then ( 9 months ) i have controlled my afib pretty well. I will see my doctor soon to get his input but wondering if I will experience any rebound or withdrawal effect ? I am also on lisinopril and Amdolopine will it affect these meds if and when I quit warfarin.. ## There can be a slight rebound if you suddenly stop taking any medication, including Warfarin, which is why it's very important to never stop taking something, without your doctor's approval and supervision. It likely should not affect your other medications. You can read more about this medication on MedlinePlus. What have you done for the nosebleed? Did you go to the E...

can warfarin and adco dol be taken together

My chemist gave me adco-dol for pain relief. I use 10mg warfarin daily will there be any harm in using it together ## Hello, Norman! How are you? There's a chance that it could also cause some additional blood thinning, so it would be best not to take it, until you check with your doctor. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness and constipation.

imprint 324 blue round, scored but blank on other side

I found a pill and need to know what it is. Does a opioid 30 mg have 324 on it? ## Hi Chicky, After doing a lot of digging on the internet, I couldn't locate an exact match to your pill. Pretty much all of the closely related descriptions and images I saw were of oblong or capsule shaped pills. The lack of available information leads me to believe that your pill falls into either one of the following categories: discontinued, Illicit, over-the-counter, or of foreign origin. Is it something that could've been brought back from overseas? ## Warfarin 3mg is blue with same number on the front
