458 pill

small round white ## What’s a small round pill marked 485 on one side blank on other ## Hello, I wasn't able to find anything that exactly matches your description but I was able to find a Claritin 10mg pill that has a 458 imprint but from the description the NIH gives it should also have the word Claritin on it somewhere. Is it possible that the pill is worn and that the word Claritin is somewhere on the opposite side? Here is a picture of what the Claritin pill looks like, it's so light and the imprint is already hard to read as is that's why I'm asking. Is this the pill that you are referring to?

white round scored w823

blank with score on one side, other side has W on top & 823 beneath. ## I’m trying to identify the pill you described perfectly. It’s either Claritin or prednisone 10mg. Sometimes my meds have totally different sizes and shapes and I’ve lost the label on these. Sometimes I put my meds for two or four days together if I’m staying away from home. I’m at end stage lung disease and take quite a few pills to say the least. I haven’t been able to find this one like the usual searches I ve done before thank you for any help you can tell me

trinalin

What are the active ingredients in Trinalin? Trinalin was discontinued and I have not found a substitute medication that works as good as Trinalin did. Where can I obtain prescription? I have tried Claritin, Allegra, Singulair and Zirtec but not one works a good as trinalin did. Help! ## I have not found a med.that works as well with my system as trinalin 703. The other med.make me shake, please let me know what would have the same ingredients. ## Dystonic reactions are normal, and frequently occur with this medication, it is no longer approved for marketing in the U.S. under current FDA standards. Thus, I am not sure what would be equivalent, there is nothing that has the same ingredients. Keith, what other medications have you tried?

is it safe to take 2 Claritin10 at once?

My daughter is 16 and 125 pounds and having a horrible time with allergies and had terrible headache! Is it safe for her to take 2 Claritin10 at once? Was wondering if higher dosage would help or hurt? ## Hello, Marie! How is she doing? Actually, rather than doubling up, you should take her to her doctor. They may be able to prescribe something that would work better for her than the Claritin. The headache could also signify that she's developed a sinus infection, which could require an antibiotic. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, headache and non=allergic skin rash. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Capsule turmeric and black pepper. TAke morning and night. Allergies gone. Don't believe me? Try it. I...

Claritin D purchase limitations

Was told I can't purchase any more this month. I have only bought it 1 time this year, on May 7th. Now over 2 weeks later they say no more this month. Where else is it available? ## Hello, Gost! How are you? I'm sorry, but if you've reached your purchase limit, then no store will be able to sell it to you. Purchases of these products are logged in a database, which is why you have to sign for them and show ID. You will have to wait until the month is up, before you can purchase a new supply. Claritin D contains Loratadine and Pseudoephedrine, the latter of which is commonly abused and often adulterated to manufactured illicit substances. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and nervousness. Is t...

claritin 10mg loratadine 428

I wanted to find out if this has Sudafed in it and if it has to have a prescription to get it? ## Hi famous, How are you? To answer your question, Claritin (also known as Loratadine) does not contain any Sudafed (Pseudoephedrine) in and of itself. However, it is "available in combination" with that specific medication as well as others. It will also require a prescription from your doctor here in the US, but I'm not aware of the laws in other countries. I hope this helps!

what is the pill L412 used for

I found a little oval white pill with the markings L412 on it ## I can't find this one listed anywhere, however, I can tell you that pills marked with an L followed by 3 additional numbers are over the counter products. They are sold in many different countries as the generics or store brands. That would also explain why this isn't listed anywhere, OTC products are not required to have their imprints on file with the FDA. Does anyone know what this tablet is? ## This is generic claritin ## It is a generic pill. It is loratadine, its for allergies. Generic for claratin I believe.

White round pill, df on one side, scored once on other

Any idea what this is? No numbers on the pill. Letters are lower case. ## Help! Small, white pill about a half inch in diameter, scored in half on one side, small "df" on the other. Someone told me it was a claritin generic, but I don't believe it. ## Anyone ever come across. A small white round pill with a lower case d above and to the left of a lower case p ,the other side has a 5 with a dash above below on the left and right. I can not for the life of me figure out what this is?

For whom does this really work

My allergies where terrible today. Really just a seasonal flare up. I took 2 tablets in hopes to be rid of my flare up or to at least have some relief. 3 hours later....my nose is RAW, I can barely open my eyes because of all the watering. My lips are chapped because of all the breathing through my mouth. ## Claritin contains the active ingredient Loratadine, which is an antihistamine, but just like any other drug, it doesn't work for everyone that takes it, which is why there are others on the market. Learn more Loratadine details here. Just as an example, I have tried it, but only found it to help with respiratory symptoms. However, I also get hives sometimes and found Allegra/Fexofenadine to help with both. Learn more Allegra details here. Has your doctor recommended anything for...
