yellow pill apo 500

how long does it take to work and can you take Advil with it ? ## Before I can answer this, I need to know if the APO and 500 are on the same side of the tablet or opposites? Also what country is it from? ## Do any other letters appear on the inscription or opposite side of the pill such as MET, CIP, GAB ?? If NOT ... I have searched around and so far the closest pill which I have found to resemble your description is: " Each yellow, capsule-shaped, biconvex tablet, scored and identified 'APO 500' on one side, contains naproxen 500 mg " [1] So my best guess at this point is that it is called Apo-naproxen from Canada, containing, of course, Naproxen 500 mg as stated above. If that sounds like what you have then you should NOT take Advil with it, as Advil (Ibuprofen) is an...

red pill with only 51 imprint

I found an oblong pill with the imprint 51 on it. It's kind of like the marroonish color of an advil..I have done a Google search and can't seem to find any info. If anyone knows what this pill could be please let me know. Thank you. ## I've had several people ask about this tablet and I still can't find anything definitive on it. Thus, I am wondering if it may be something that is available over the counter, such medications are usually not listed in the FDA or NIH databases. The closest I've been able to find, so far, has P 51 on it and is a red gel cap that contains Decussate, which is used as a laxative and stool softener. It's typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, bloating, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Does anyone else recognize this pill? ...

How long after taking an advil can i take methylprednisolone?

I took an advil for a headache at 2pm and ate dinner but I am not sure if I should take the methylprednisolone (6 pills) or wait 24 hours for the advil to leave my system? ## They are not in the same medication class, but what has your prescriber advised? Have you been told not to combine them? In many cases, they are taken together, since the Methylprednisolone may cause headaches as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, acne, mood changes, and weight changes. It would be best to follow your doctor's instructions. Is there something else I could help with?

amox tr k clv 875 125mg and Advil Cold & Sinus medication together?

I am on my first day of amox tr k clv 875-125 mg for a ten day course to treat a cold. The runny nose and coughing is making it hard to sleep and get the needed rest. Can I take Advil Cold and Sinus medication while taking Amox Tr K CLV 875-125 mg? Thanks. ## Hello, Jay! How are you feeling? Sorry that you're sick. However, this is an antibiotic and will do nothing to treat a cold. Antibiotics are only effective against bacteria and a cold is caused by a virus. And actually, taking it when it is not appropriate and needed could cause you to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria. Did your doctor prescribe it? And no, the antibiotic shouldn't be taken with the Ibuprofen in the Advil Cold & Sinus, because they can both increase the available levels of the other in your body, wh...

V One Side Yellow Pill 3601 Compared To M367 Both At 10 325 In Strength

I was normally given the yellow v 3601-10/325pill & at CVS yesterday they gave me a white oblong pill with # M367 on the front also 10/325 in strength . The white oblong does not work for me as well as the yellow v pill. Why not ? I've been thru this with CVS before & even changed CVS locations just to get the yellow v pill. Now that CVS is giving me the white oblong M367. What can I do about it??? They say yellow pill will be out of stock til later. It's sooo frustrating! ## There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients from one generic to another.
