Large white round pill marked with a Fleur De Lis symbol and USHER

I am desperate to know what this large white round pill is that I found this evening. It has the word "USHER" written twice, (once going down and the other across) on one side. On the other, it looks like a Fleur De Lis. ## I just found one too!! What the heck is this? It looks super suspicious and I’m concerned. It was on my street near our home and I have no idea where it came from??? ## I am not seeing an answer as to what this pill is......help please. ## This sounds like something illicit. Drug dealers stamp pills with a bunch of random things. Definitely some type of rave type party drug that has only God knows what in it. It could have Benadryl, amphetamine, benzodiazepenes, just anything they can find and stick in a pill. I mean these stamped pills are loaded with ...

Hot pink pill B imprint

Please help! I've found a hot pink round pill w/ an imprint of B. Nothing else. I found it in my daughters things after unpacking from a trip. ## It is identified as Fastmelt Children's Benadryl 19mgs. She had allergy problems I'm guessing. :) ## Yes, Benadryl contains the active ingredient Diphenhydramine, it is used to treat allergies, and as a sleep aid, since it causes drowsiness as a side effect, along with dizziness, and dry mouth. There is a round, pink childrens tablet with a B on it, as described by Jimbo, as well as a regular 25mg oblong pink tablet, both are available over the counter. Is there anything I can help with?

Banging into anything is causing extreme itching

I figured I'd come here hoping anyone can figure out this weird thing happening with my dad, we cannot figure out. Everytime he hits his body off something (example: getting up from the couch and he hits his leg off the coffee table. Just normal terrible luck kind of hits where u smack ur arm or leg off something lol), it'll cause suucchh a baadd itch that he can't get to stop unless he takes some Benadryl :/ it's thee weirdest thing. If he cuts himself it doesn't happen, it's literally just when he hits a body part off something like we allll do. His dr said maayybbee it could be a blood disorder? :/ but i just don't know. He's relying on Benadryl almost everyday because if he bumps into anything hard enough it'll cause such extreme itching. Does ANY...

pediatric drug dosing

child wt. 10 kg How much Benadryl can I give>> ## can we use trace elements alone without TPN in pediatric patients? if yes, how can we administer it? ## Hello, Here are the suggested dosage instructions from the Benadryl website. Children under 4 years: Do not use Children 4 to 5 years: Do not use unless directed by a doctor Children 6 to 11 years: 5mL Adults and children 12 years and over: 10mL According to the kids data organization the average 2 year old weighs 12kg so I am going to make the assumption that your child is likely less than 4 years old and with that in mind I suggest that you do not give your child any Benadryl. If your child is having symptoms you believe require Benadryl please consult your pediatrician for the options that would work best for you and your ch...

benadryl and bromfed interactions

Can I take benadryl and bromfed within a couple hours of each other? I have a terrible cough. Took benadryl first and it hasn't helped. ## Benadryl is an antihistamine that is used to treat or prevent allergic reactions, so it will not do anything to treat a cough, and unfortunately, Bromfed also isn't like to help, since it has not cough suppressant properties, according to the NIH. To treat a cough, you need a cough suppressant. Have you consulted your doctor to see what's causing your cough and what would be the best remedy? Are you on any other medications? ## I took benadryl two hrs ago but now have a very bad headache. Can I take a BC powder? ## I took benadryl for allergy issues, and 30 mins to an hour later I took a BC powder for a headache. Can this affect me?
