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...

White Pill Watson 3369

i dont really want to get messed up but do those watson 3369 pills make you feel high or is it just for head ache's? ## Acetaminophen (325 mg) + Butalbital (50 mg) + Caffeine (40 mg) is most commonly used to treat migraines and tension headaches. I personally haven't come across any statements on how it effects you, primarily because these medications can effect each person differently, where as some people get great results from taking it, but there are others that it just doesn't work the same for. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is to actually try it and be your own best judge. You can read more about it here: I hope this helps! ## I take this quite regularly for tension headaches. If it doesn't knock my headache, then I have to go with the stronger Sumatripta...

pink oblong pill with 44502

What is this pill meant to treat? I lost the box and only have the foil-backed package. It is acetaminophen and phenylephrine. ## I have some of these. I got them out a generic package bought from Wal-Mart for a sinus headache. ## Hello, As Joshua stated this medication is an over the counter combination medication for sinus and headache relief. The acetaminiphone works to reduce swelling, fevers and pain while the phenylephrine works to shrink blood vessels in the nasal passages which relieves sinus pressure. You can pick this type of medication up at pretty much any convenience store. I wasn't able to find the specific brand or manufacturer of this pills imprint so I can't provide you with any of the inactive ingredients or additional info I normally provide. Have a good day a...

red oval gel pill with 512

The pill I found is 2 in a pack and they are pretty big pills. They are gel, red, oval looking and say 512 on one side... You can tell it's some type of allergy or sinus medication that you can buy over the counter. ## Hi Angie, I located an oval orange colored gel (liquid-filled) pill marked with "512", that reportedly contains a combination of Acetaminophen (325mg) + Dextromethorphan (10mg) + Phenylephrine hydrochloride (5 mg), used for treating upper respiratory conditions such as colds, coughing and/or allergy symptoms. For verification, the pill itself is said to be manufactured by McKesson Drug Company and carries a National Drug Code of 70677-0011. I hope this helps! ## Mine is red with the same 512 but not sure if it is that same one.

doctors that prescribe pain meds in Fort Smith, AR

I’ve been on and off pain meds for many years. I just moved to Fort Smith, Ar and need a doctor who will prescribe me pain meds without acetaminophen. Ones like morphine, OxyContin, or dilaudid. I know with the opioid epidemic doctors are more reluctant than ever to prescribe these drugs, but I need them and don’t want to “doctor shop”. Any recommendations please?

My daughter had surgery on Wednesday last week and was prescribed hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5/325 15 ml every 4 hrs for pain. How many days should that last? ## Hello, Meg! How are you?
