White pill with 44334

White pill with 44334 ## that is most likely over the counter headache relief, i have a whole bottle of them, CVS brand ## I have those too. Its CVS Headache Relief (coated caplets)! ## Just to confirm, Pill imprint 44 334 has been identified as Extra strength headache relief acetaminophen (250 mg ), aspirin (250 mg), and caffeine (65 mg). It is used to treat migraines; headaches; pain and fever; as well as osteoarthritis. Editor's note: this message lacks a proper citation ## Since we are likely dealing with an over the counter product here, it is possible that more than one type of otc med will carry similar inscriptions. I did find another product called "Stay Awake" by Rite Aid, which is an oblong white tablet with 44-344 on one side and a score mark on the other. It con...

Edrisol or edrisal

Used to take for cramps. What was it? ## Is this still on the market? I used to take it for cramps ## Hello, Mel and Sandy! How are you both? Edrisal contained the active ingredient Phenacetin, however, it was banned by the FDA in 1983 due to the increased risk it caused of kidney failure and certain types of cancer. It is actually metabolized into Acetaminophen(Tylenol) so that is what it was replaced with in over the counter medications. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wish they would research this some more and make any necessary changes. It really worked great for cramps. I don't know about you but it gave me a very euphoric feeling and feeling of well-being, but I never took more than absolutely needed. ## I took it also, back in the 60’s. It made me VERY ALE...

Difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 vs white pill same strength but u03. Both say sub for norco.

Just want to know difference between both pills, beside Manufacturers. I was taking Hydocodone-Acetaminophen 10-325 yellow pill #1096 on one side a V on other side. I was then switched to a white oval pill with the same strength, but has U03 on one side. both say substituted for Norco. ## Hello, Chula! How are you? That is the only difference. When a medication is available for generic production, it is usually manufactured by several different companies, because this creates market competition to help keep prices down. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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? ## Even though both are ge...

Watson 853 White or Yellow Pill

I've been taking the Watson 853 yellow hydro /acetaminophen for several years. I get them from a well known pharmacy company. My most recent script was filled and I noticed the color was white, even though the markings of Watson 853 are identical to the light yellow pill. There was a huge difference in side effects with the new pill; constipation, dry mouth, and a little nasal congestion that I typically get from preservatives like sulfites. Many people get these symptoms when taking narcotics, but I have been fortunate with the hydrocodone as it has never affected me that way (oxycodone does however) I called the pharmacist and he said he couldn't get the yellow tabs anymore but wouldn't say one way or the other whether the formulation or fillers in the white pill differ fr...

White capsule A 39

I found this pill in my son's pants while washing clothes. It had "A 39" on one side and nothing on the other. What is it and what is it for? ## Is it a capsule, or a capsule shaped tablet? If it's a tablet it is manufactured by KVK Tech and they list it as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen, and 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic analgesic, the active ingredients in Lortab. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

I have a prescription for only 30 tabs of Acetaminophen Hydrocodone 7.5 325mg in a month supply

The medicine helps me out in my pain on a daily basis. I was wondering if it was ok to ask the doctor for more tabs so the tabs will last a month? Maybe 45 tabs should be efficient. ## Hello, David! How are you? How many does the doctor instruct you take daily? This isn't a time released medication, so it's usually dosed several times a day. This is 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. ## Try breaking them in half and taking half every 12 hours instead for a month. If this doesn't work, have the discussion ## What does vicodin / acetaminophen 7.5-325 look like? ## Google is your friend, access your friend. ## dear sir, Do not use more Acetaminophen [ PA...

NAC 600mg Supplements

I've learned that this supplement by the name of NAC is a supplement that covers just about any ailment or vice you could think of. It's evidently a secret or just not widely known about. However, I've done my research & I've asked questions and this is what I've learned this far... NAC has the ability to diminish certain drug cravings & cease drug use in cocaine addicts, nicotine addicts, marijuana addicts & even methamphetamine addicts!! Also, it provides mental health patients with mental clarity & helps with depression as well. It has so many benefits, there's no way I could possibly cover them all here. It's actually used in hospitals where patients had overdosed on acetaminophen as they administer it in high doses, thus keeping the patie...
