Red oblong pill with 3 s 0

What is this pill? It says on the bottle, "rapid release pain.......Containing acetaminophen" ## I haven't been able to find a listed that matches this, but I am wondering if it is a generic, or store brand of Tylenol Rapid Release? The FDA lists it as containing the active ingredient Acetaminophen, and it is commonly used to treat pain, fever, and headaches. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and stomach irritation. Can you please double check the imprint and post back? Is anyone else familiar with this pill? ## 3s0 is on one side ## Could it possibly be a "5" instead of "S" in the imprint?

cyclopam tablet is used for teeth ?

can cyclopam tablet use for teeth pain ?can cyclopam tabelt is use for any type of pain ? ## Is cyclopam medicine is for teeth pain?? Will it get relief my having ## It is very doubtful that it will help with dental pain. This medication is most commonly used to treat gastro-intestinal issues. The best thing to do would be to see a dentist, so they can prescribe something appropriate. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, bloating and flatulence. The only actual pain reliever in this medication is Acetaminophen and that won't do much for such intense pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Cyclopam Tablet because my teeth very pen this price and I can used this tevlet my old 31

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...
