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...

n358 on one side and 10 the other

Want to make sure pharmacy gave me the correct medication. I had taken some pain medication that has M367 but today the pharmacy gave me a pill with the letter "n" on the left side and "358" on the right side of the score line. On the other side it has number "10". Just want to make sure I got the correct medication for pain. Not more or less of what my Dr has been giving me. I take a 10mg dose. I am supposed to take 10mg of hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen. Want to make sure that is what I got today. ## I had to double check also. They are hydro 10s. No worries. ## RE: n358 hydrocodone Why do people always say "I found this pill"?... B.S. why can't they just say I got this pill, trying to make sure it's what I think it is or bought or whate...

Hydrocodone pill that says u03

Has anyone seen a hydrocodone pill that has u03 on it? ## There actually are white oval-shaped pills marked with U03 that are identified as Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone bitartrate (325/10mg). Manufacturer: Aurolife Pharma LLC These pills do seem to be uncommon though, as I rarely even hear mention of them among all the other brands on the market. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this info helps! ## Just got refill & it was these U03's. They are pretty weak compared to the former "Lortab" however they are controlling my pain somewhat... ## The.e weaker? I had never seen them before today. At 1st, I thought pharmacy gave me wrong med until I googled it. It should be basically same thing; However, have you noticed the change in the name & came outright af...

Is Dolo Neurobion Forte used for back pain?

I have really bad back pains. I have tried everything to mild the pain but nothing works. Can I take Dolo-Neurobion Forte for my back pain? ## I doubt that it will help, it just contains a complex of B vitamins, with Acetaminophen (aka Tylenol). The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache. What other medications have you tried? ## Yes, it's useful for pain relief. Headaches, migraine. Spasms. Good for the brain. ## Hi, i want to know which neurobion is good for my cracking/popping my knee and legs. 4 months ago when i feel this case. Thanks. ## Which is better to take nuerogen forte or just nuerogen 300 for scolliosis? ## Yes, Dolo NEUROBION Forte Works very well for back pain.

orange pill with upside down v z27 ()

oblong shape orange/peach pill with above listed imprint ## What pill is oblong shape orange/peach pill with upside down v z27 () ## Hello, I wasn't able to find something with an upside down V z27 but I was able to find a pill on the NIH database that is a capital letter A and Z27. This pill is orange in color and capsule shaped. It's possible that the line between the A is missing in the manufacturers printing machine or that it has simply worn off in time. If you think this is the pill that you have then it is listed as an over the counter sinus headache PE maximum strength non-drowsy pill. Below is some other information that I sourced from the NIH on this medication. Product Code 69168-270 Imprint AZ270 Name Sinus headache pemaximum strength non-drowsy Active Ingredients - ...

1p112 white tablet

Trying to ID a white tablet - one side has 1p 112, other is scored. ## The correct imprint actually uses the letter I rather than the number 1.

Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness, nausea, dry mouth and constipation.

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...
