Kirkland extra strength muscle joint pain

Just bought Kirkland acetaminophen & methocarbamol combo bottle. However it now has a 094 on one side of the pill. It never had any imprint before. Is this a change or a mistake? ## Gary, I haven't been able to verify the 094 imprint on the tablet. Is this an over the counter product from the US? I didn't know that Costco has a tablet with methocarbamol in it, their website doesn't list it. ## Yes OTC in Canada Costco. I sent an email to the company to inquire - should hear back on Monday - will let you know what they say. ## Ah ok, that explains it. I'd be interested to know what you hear back. They really need to loosen up out here in the US. I'm sure those tablets work great. Thanks!

Round White Pill Gc 101

Found these pills outside on the sidewalk. What are they? ## These are Acetaminophen (generic Tylenol) 325mg. Manufacturer is not listed on the label. The distributor is Geri-Care Pharmaceuticals Corp,1650 - 63rd St., Brooklyn NY 11204. (GC=GeriCare) NDC is 57896-102. Inactive Ingredients: - Povidone - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato - Starch, Corn -Stearic Acid - Crospovidone - Methylparaben - Propylparaben Source: DailyMed ## I've tried looking for these for a few days now, since first seeing your post, but I am just not finding them listed anywhere. My biggest suspicion is that they are something that's available over the counter, which would explain their not being listed in any of the prescription drug databases that I checked. Does anyone else recognize these?

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...

Oblong blue pill tcl 350

Actually I believe they are JetAsleep brand sleeping pills with acetaminophen (350mg) and diphenhydramine(50mg). They are made by the same company as JetAwake, so the previous commenter was understandably mistaken by thinking that these also contain caffeine. ## Based on the inscription of TCL 350 and the color blue, it appears to be an over the counter allergy tablet containing Diphenhydramine 50 mg (NDC 42507-066 among others). Inactive ingredients: - Silicon Dioxide - Croscarmellose Sodium - Calcium Phosphate, Dibasic, Dihydrate - FD&C Blue No. 1 - Hypromelloses - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Mineral Oil - Stearic Acid - Aluminum Oxide ## While I haven't been able to verify any alleged findings in my investigation, I do have a hunch that the manufacturer...

rp 10 325

Was getting these in A larger yellow tablet and was suprised to open my bottle this month and find this smaller different looking white pill. Now I wonder if it is as good as the yellow I have been taking ?? Or have I been switched to a less effective generic by my pharmacist bcuz he samed money on a batch of something that is not going to work as well for me ## Hello, Larry! How are you? These tablets are listed as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Oxycodone, the active ingredients in Percocet or Roxicet. Which generic your pharmacy carries may change, at any given time, depending on which manufacturer was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause si...
