What is Epleptin used for?

I have been prescribed Eplepton for extremely restless legs which cause insomnia. In addition my thyroid has gone from being underactive to overactive so therefore my meds were reduced. I also over a period weaned myself off one tramacet and one celebrex which I took every night for approximately three years for neck pain. I discontinued taking these two tablets as I was extremely sleepy during the day. Lastly I was prescribed urbanol for depression as well which I also weaned myself off soon after discontinuing the use of tramacet and celebrex. My question to you is this ... is it safe to take Eplepton 1 nightly, 100mg when five years ago I had a stroke and subsequently two heart episodes. I really have a dilemma currently. Thank you. ## This medication is listed as containing the acti...

xaralto vs celebrex??

My son was diagnosed with many small blood clots in his lungs, Dr perscribed xaralta but advised him to discontinue his celebrex drug. He is suffering greatly over entire body with stiffness and pain from his head to his toes, What can he take to replace celebrex or can he go back on celebrex or is he getting reaction to the xalareto? ## How long has it been since he started the Xarelto and stopped the Celebrex? His symptoms might be due to a combination of side effects from the Xarelto, and a sudden withdrawal of the Celebrex. Given the blood clots, and the risks associated with them, it would be best that he not taking any medication that isn't approved by his doctor. Xarelto can cause side effects, such as nausea, headache, increased risk of bleeding, fatigue, and joint/muscle ac...

Celebrex and sweating

I have been sweating a lot, even in cold weather. Is this a possible side effect of Celebrex? ## Hi Debrose - do you have a fever or any cold / flu like symptoms? I was reading through the Celecoxib side effects on Medline Plus and didn't see anything specifically listing sweating or hot flashes. However, what you reported could go in line with other side effects listed. I would read through the list on that page, and definitely let your doctor know since they should factor in any other things from your medical history. For example, it says "Your blood pressure should be checked regularly during your treatment." Could the sweating relate to a change in your blood pressure? Just things to consider and get checked asap. I hope this helps and best wishes with your treatment. Pl...

Celebrex shelf life

What is the shelf life of Celebrex capsule 200mg. The date on mine is 5/2/09. They have been kept in the original pharmacy container in a cool dark cabinet. Are they still effective? ## When regular prescription tablets and capsules are dispensed, they are required to have a one year shelf life, from the time you get your prescription filled. That means that yours actually expired on 05/02/10. This doesn't mean that they are dangerous to use, but after that date, they can start to lose potency and not be as effective. Have you spoken to your doctor? It may be advisable to just get a new prescription, if you still need to use this medication. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, stomach irritation and headache. ## Taking pills that are expired is not dangerous. They m...

Is there anything else I can help with? ## hi. my celebrex expired aug 2015. is there a grace period? thanks

What Is The Shelf Life Of Celebrex 200mg

My pills are 28 months old, I wonder if there are still good ## It is highly likely that they have lost effectiveness and aren't worth taking, by now. The expiration date is usually one year from when they are dispensed to you by your pharmacy and the original container was opened, so they have been exposed to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light and moisture. At 28 months old, that means they are over another year past the original expiration date. Learn more Celebrex details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ## The experation date on all perscription medication is a year after the date it's written. But most medications are still good well after that date especially if they were stored in a freezer or refrigerator. This is from a study the mi...

celebrex and Xarelto!

I take Xarelto for AFib. Also, just started Celebrex for arthritis and Fibro pain. Is this a dangerous combination? ## Hello, Ann! How are you? The main interaction I found listed is the bleeding risk, since Celebrex can also increase the risk of blood thinning and bleeding, as side effects, according to the FDA. That doesn't mean they cannot be taken together, if your doctor has prescribed them both, but you should be aware of the risks and your doctor should carefully calculate your dosage to be careful, plus they should be monitoring your regularly, in case any problems develop. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My primary doctor prescribed xarelto for a recent deep vein thrombosis and Celebrex for my arthritis Is this a safe combination?

Celebrex Contraindications and Safety

I just need to wonder if celebrex is ok to take if I have Mitral Valve Prolapse, heart murmur, allergic to sulfa medications will be ok for me to take without further hurting my existing problems. I also have a Hiatel Hernia and Reflux syndrome. Do you reccomend me to take this? My Dr. says it is up to him and to take it, even if it is not helping my pain. I am on 100mg's a day.

You don't state how long you've been on this med but if longer than 3 days and it's not helping then I would demand a change or go to another doctor. ## I am taking celebrex 200mg for 2 days but I feel chest...
