Dicyclomine Overview

How Long Will Dicyclomine Hcl Remain Usable Past Expiration Date

how long will dicyclomine hcl remaine usable past expiration date ## Once a medication has expired, it is best to just dispose of it properly. There is no information available to let you know how long it still remains viable and effective past its expiration. The available data for when it expires is just derived from data that only shows the maximum time range for which effectiveness can be guaranteed in regular storage conditions. They are not required to do further testing beyond that and, since they want to see more of any given medication, it wouldn't actually make sense for them to do so. I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer for you. However, once it is expired, it starts to lose effectiveness and should be replaced with new product. Are there any other questio...

What is a blue pill with 555 over 126?

Round light blue pill blank on one side and 555 on the top 126 on the bottom of the other side no score ## Hello, Todd! How are you? Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an identification for this, yet. They seem to be old tablets that are no longer manufactured, as from other posts I've found they were said to be found in the homes of elderly deceased relatives. Thus finding an ID may be a bit difficult. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize these tablets? ## I found a few of these mixed in with some 10mg Dicyclomine Capsules after my mom died. This DOES NOT constitute a definite identification because I can't find them listed anywhere else either, but at least it's a place to start.

Use Of Spasmo Proxyvon for pain in Prostate glands

Can Spasmo Proxyvon be used for pain relief in Prostate area for a man of 47 yrs age? ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains: dicyclomine hydrochloride 10 mg + acetaminophen 400 mg + propoxyphene napsylate 100 mg. The combination of these creates a very mild narcotic pain killer. If you do have pain in the prostate area, I would honestly consider diagnosing the underlying cause of this inflammation/pain to better decide how to treat it instead of covering up the pain temporarily. ## substitute for spamo proxyvon or other same kind of medicines. ## Yes, it can used to relieve pain in any area or any parts of the body. But, consumptions of excessive medicine can cause overdose or death. If you took an average dose it can even cure some minor and critical pain forever.

diclopamine

diclopamine ## I have not seen any information in my research on a substance called Diclopamine and wonder if it may be a misspelling for Dicyclomine or Cyclopamine? Dicyclomine is most commonly known for treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) It works by relieving muscle spasms in the G.I. tract by blocking the activity of a certain natural substance in the body. Drug Class: anticholinergics Cyclopamine is a naturally occurring chemical that belongs in the family of steroidal alkaloids. According to NIH.gov, Cyclopamine has both teratogenic and antitumor activities. However, on a cautionary note, it has also been stated that Cyclopamine is a teratogen isolated from the corn lily (Veratrum californicum) that causes fatal birth defects. I hope this info helps!

Any alternative to leave Spasmo Proxyvon

I have been using Spasmo Proxyvon from two years and now i want leave it but due to it's side effect i am unable to do so. Therefore i would be grateful if any one has the other alternative. ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains the active ingredients Dicyclomine, Acetaminophen and Propoxyphene, and this last one is a mild narcotic and can be addicting. It has been pulled from the market in most countries, due to the risk it causes of cardiac dangers. However, due to that and the fact that you have been taking it for so long, your best chance for stopping this medication is probably to seek medical assistance from a doctor. Learn more Propoxyphene information here. Have you tried tapering off of it? ## hi sir i m very sceard and my muscles are pain regurlarly i take 10to12 spasmo proxyvon pil...
