stilpane addiction

Is there anything I can use to help with withdrawal symptoms? I'm addicted to stilpane and I stopped once but the withdrawal symptoms were terrible, then I started again. I need help urgently. ## Hello, Zee! How are you? Please seek medical attention. These contain Acetaminophen and taking that much of it in a day creates the risk of toxicity, which has the potential to be fatal. You may already have done permanent damage to your liver. Have you had any stomach pain? Any yellowing of the skin? You're going to need to do a slow taper to be able to stop taking them. ## Hi verwon I'm greatful to your reply the doctors don't tell you these things they actually the ones giving you the meds for pain relief because I had my womb removed a couple of years ago it was extremely pa...

white pill?

IP 111 on one side blank on the other....flat oblong in shape ## This tablet was manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they listed it as containing 500mgs of Acetaminophen, and 5mgs of Hydrocodone. It was a narcotic analgesic used to treat pain, however, this dosage is no longer available on the U.S. market. Such combination prescription medications are now restricted to containing no more then 325mgs of Acetaminophen per dose. The FDA warns that Hydrocodone carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

bioflu and alcohol side effect

What will be the effect if I take Biolflu and drink beer. Is there any negative effect or will I fall asleep? ## Hello, Mar! How are you? One of the ingredients in Bioflu is Acetaminophen and due to how harsh it can be on your liver, it should never be combined with alcohol, according to the NIH. Doing so creates the risk of liver damage or failure. And yes, it could also cause you to experience more dizziness and drowsiness than usual. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My husband took Bioflu and after a minute went by, he also drank a little Emperador light brandy. Then I noticed that he got a red thing on his skin - What may be the side effects of these two substances? ## I had 2 glasses of bubbly champagne with colleagues. As I was starting to feel the flu coming up and of c...

Alternatives to Daflon in Australia

I need help finding a similar alternative to Daflon that's available in Australia... I tried many brands and nutrition doesn't work. Please reply. Thanks. ## can I get Deflon in Australia/any alternative medication for deflon ## Hello Miro, I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling to find medication or a diet that helps you with your situation. Daflon is most commonly paired with it's use to treat hemorrhoids, and going off that assumption I have to say that there are too many different brands of hemorrhoid medication to list here. In addition to that it would not be safe for either of us for me to recommend you any medications as I do not have access to your medical history.

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...
