Trihexiphenadyl hcl Artane

Has this anticholinergic been out of favor. It is effective for my extrapyramidyl reactions. And acts as a good antispasmodic. Bentropine mesylate isn't as well tolerated. ## Hello, Kim! How are you? This medication is still available, it's just that as time passes and new ones become available, doctors will often switch to prescribing the newer in hopes that changing/growing research may provide a better option for patients. The most common side effects to this one may include drowsiness, headache, blurred vision and impaired sweating. Is there anything else I can help with?

what is the name of this

orangeish, yellowish round pill, not scored, has GG288 on one side? What is this? ## I would like to know about a white round pill with a line through it on one side and the other has a WW with 763 below it. ## The WW 763 pill is something called Artane R. It is used for stiffness in the joints, bad rheumatoid arthritis, and especially for parkinsons disease. ## The GG288 pill is a muscle relaxer called Flexeril. It is often used for pulled muscles, especially in the back. It can make you drowsy and dizzy so it is best not to drive or operate machinery while taking it.
