asthma inhaler containing no sulfate

looking for name of a regular asthma inhaler besides symbacort that does not have sulfate in it. I am allergic to sulfate. I use a rescue inhaler but I cannot use it all the time and my doctor doesn't know that much about asthma inhalers and sulfate its a low income doctors office. So again any suggestions. No sulfate. Thanks ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? Sorry about the problem you're having. However, I need to ask what exactly it is that you're allergic to? Is it sulfa drugs, sulfates or sulfites? What type of reaction do you have and how did you discover the allergy? These are all important details to determine what may or may not be safe for you to use. Do you see an allergist? ## I'm allergic to all sulfas per my primary physician and the diagnostics they ran. I b...

How Do I Get My Dr To Prescribe Me Demerol

i take dilaudid and tramadol and have been for a least 3 years, i take several 8mg dilaudid at a time. i reember demerol working nicely while i was in the hospital....how do i gwt me dr to give me that? ## Hi shawn, Some advice I can give you is to not specifically ask for any 'specific medication' when you see a doctor. Just make sure to transfer or take a copy of all your medical records with you if your doctor doesn't already have them. Then, the best approach in my opinion, is to discuss up front and honestly what has or hasn't worked for you in the past. Most doctors will then take it under consideration and hear you out if you approach them in this manner, with what you believe to be most helpful to your condition. I think a lot of patients don't get the medica...

round white and x on pill

was told it is 75 mg. demerol ## what is a small white pill with a v on one side and 75 on the other ## To the original poster, is that the only marking on the tablet? Can you please post back and clarify? Tony, is it an A, or a V? If the marking is V 75, then the tablet is manufactured by Harris Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 10mgs of Hydroxyzine, which is used to treat allergic reactions, and as a sedative. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and sedation.

Demerol/Promethazine? Can't find picture to confirm.

I found a pill in my cabinet when I was cleaning it out (my husband was very ill for 2 years and I guess it got stowed away for some reason) and looked it up by imprint and I only found one answer and NO photos. I would like to confirm the answer was accurate; I don't know what this thing is! Description Pill TABLET form, White and Round ONE side has a capital A The other side has 190 The only thing I found on the web that matched my description was that it is Meperidine 50mg/ Promethazine 25 mg. The answer had no photo. As I searched I saw some ppl say this is generic Demerol with Phenergan? Please let me know if you have an answer. My husband was in severe pain with a bad illness for 2 years, so obviously with all his hospital stays and dr visits, it's hard for me to narrow do...

are pethidine 100mg ampoules over the counter

I had taken pethidine 100mg after 8th spinal operation. I am in a lot of pain and need relief, are they available over the counter? ## I'm sorry, but this site does not manufacture, prescribe, nor sell any medications, this is an information only website. Pethidine, also referred to as Demerol or Meperidine is a narcotic analgesic. Did you doctor not provide you with anything for pain relief? That is very unusual for having had such major surgery. Since this is a narcotic, it can cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Demerol and Mexico

Has anyone had success getting their scripts filled in Tijuana, Mexico? I've heard from a couple people that it's a walk in the park. Too many American drs are too afraid to prescribe meds. I've heard u can go to a pharmacist there and get a script and fill it at the same pharmacy. Anyone else had success? Also, I've been on oxy 60mg for over 5 years. What's my choice from here if my insurance stops paying for it in the new year? Its $1,280.!!!! I can't afford that. Is there a med comprabable to the oxycodone? I need something as strong if not stronger. Please help! Super scared

small white round pill with letter d on one side and cross on the other side

demerol diazapam ## Letters that are on a tablet do not necessarily designate what the tablet contains, in many cases they are just the logo of the manufacturer. As to this one, I can find a listing for it among U.S. prescription medications, it doesn't match any of the U.S. approved ones for Demerol or Diazepam. Was it found/obtained in the U.S.? ## Pill is white, small, round has letter D on one side and cross on the other ## Small white tablet with the letter d on one side and and plain on the other side what is it???

MIGRAINES ON VACATION

I have suffered for a long, long time the Evil, Painful, MIGRAINES. Back in the day, I was taken to the hospital to get a Demerol Shot. They don't use Demerol any more. as years went on I was taken to the hospital with migraine and was given some kind of medicine for my nausa, and my Migraine. I never stayed awake long enough to find out. Found out it was morphine. We move through the years and I've been Mexico where I had a Huge Migrain. My daring Husband ventured forth to find a Medication, in a strange country, only English language. He's my hero :) he came back with something called Neo-Melubrina (Metamizol sodico) suppositories.
