oval P67

It is an oval pill with P67 imprinted on it. My son found them and brought them to me. ## What is this white pill- oval with P67 on it? ## 299mgs of Cimetidine, which is a generic for Tagamet, which is used to treat, or prevent conditions such as ulcers, heartburn, GERD, and gastritis. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with? (I am not sure if this tablet is still being manufactured.)

Cimetidine vs Ranitidine

Are Cimetidine and Ranitidine the same? The doctor told my daughter (who is 8 months pregnant) she could take Ranitidine for acid reflux. All she has is Cimetidine. We were just wondering if it's the same? ## They are different medications, but both are generally considered safe during pregnancy, but it is always best to double check with her doctor to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, and diarrhea. Is she on any other medications? Congratulations on the grandchild!!!!

A question about G551

Can someone please tell me what G551 is? My mom has the pills in a non-descriptive bottle and she was taking 2 in the morning and 2 at night. The Internet does not have any info on it. ## Hi Amy, Do you happen to know what the color and shape of this G551 pill is? And where your mom got the bottle of pills from? I noticed other related discussion threads here depicting a white oblong / rectangular pill with this imprint of G551 as well, but haven't come across a match either as of yet. Also, is there any chance that the letter "G" could possibly be something else altogether, or is it pretty apparent and legible? I'm only curious because I did locate a white capsule/oblong-shaped pill with an imprint of PA 551; containing 400mgs of Cimetidine (which is reported to be an a...

Korean pills identified

1. Oval White pill with SD on one side/OF on the other side 2. Round White pill with TSM 3. Light orange round pill with HMP on one side/MOL on the other side 4. Round White pill with Y. CIMETDN 200 on it ## Hi Mickey, Of the four pills you mentioned I've only been able to find clues on the last one marked with "Y. CIMETDN 200". I suspect based on the spelling, that this particular pill MAY contain 200 mgs of "Cimetidine". This drug is indicated for use in treating symptoms of GERD (such as heardburn, acid reflux, gastric ulcers, as well as some stomach disorders). Unfortunately the other tablets still remain a mystery to me. However, if you're able to, I would encourage you to try and get the pills analyzed by a lab so you can be 100% certain of what you have. I...

metadine

400 mg ## I have been prescribed metadine for a tummy bug?... I would like to know more about it and its side effects ## Hello, I'm having a hard time finding any information about a medicine by the name of "Metadine". Are you referring to Cimetidine perhaps? Based on my research, Cimetidine is widely used in the treatment of heartburn and peptic ulcers and belongs to a class of medications called histamine H2-antagonists. Histamine is a natural chemical that stimulates stomach cells to produce acid. Histamine H2-antagonists inhibit the action of histamine on the acid-producing cells of the stomach and reduce stomach acid. Cimetidine was approved by the FDA in 1977.
