guardian nighttime sleep aid

Does anyone know what store makes this brand, it works GREAT & I can't remember where I got it... Thanks~ Sleepless in Georgia... ## Hi Sonya, Don't mean to disappoint, but based on my research there are no sleep aids being marketed by the name of "guardian nighttime sleep aid", "guardian sleep aid", or any other variation of those words. This is not to say that they don't exist, but if they do, they certainly aren't being marketed in a way that makes them easily accessible to the public eye. Do you recall whether it was some form of homeopathic remedy or something only available at health food stores? Any other specific details on the packaging/label might also help to narrow down our search... Thanks! ## Yes it's sold by Dollar Tree stores!! I b...

pink oval shaped pill with no imprints
3 Replies RSS
more of a capsule shape pink in color no imprint on either side ## Hello, Judy! How are you? Without any imprints, it's difficult to narrow down an identification with any certainty. We can rule it out as being a U.S. manufactured and approved prescription tablet, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. That means that it's most likely an over the counter product and that leaves it wide open to many possibilities. Just as an example, I have some tablets matching this description sitting on my shelf right now, they contain 25mgs of Diphenhydramine, a store brand of Benadryl, which is used to treat allergies. Learn more Benadryl details here. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else have any idea of...

Drug manufactured by Werrick Phamaceuticals in Islamabad-Pakistan. ## What is Nervin 05 tablets used for and why did I get them, in order to help me sleep? ## Having survical pain................................... ## Nervin is listed as containing Diphenhydramine, which is an antihistamine that is also used to treat insomnia. However, it will not help treat pain. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, blurred vision, and drowsiness. Are there any other questions?

spider bite
3 Replies RSS
I have what I believe is a spider bite on my thigh that is red and swollen. It has a hard mass just under the skin and hurts to have anything touch it. The bite is two small puncture holes but the swelling and dark redness much larger , the whole inside of my thigh. My neighbor gave me these pink pills with 44-239 to take for this, what do you think about that? ## Hello, Jeff! How are you? You need to see a doctor for this, it may need to be lanced and drained, from your description, that sounds venomous, rather than just like an allergic reaction. The tablets you've been given are just over the counter 25mg Diphenhydramine, a generic for Benadryl, used to treat allergies and allergic reactions. They will not do much if you've got an abscess forming from venom. Is there anything...

e c oblong light blue pill

Oblong light blue pill w/the letters E C on 1 side & blank on the other side. Trying 2 figure out what it is?? ## Hi Guera, According to another discussion thread here, someone else was searching for this same exact pill description and they reportedly identified it as a 25mg diphenhydramine tablet. This medication is an antihistamine used for allergies, but also doubles as a sleep aid. While I haven't been able to verify this identity, it is the only relevant match here on MedsChat. Have you considered taking the pill into a local pharmacy to see if they recognize it? Hope this helps! ## It is definitely a sleep aid. Got them from either dollar general dollar tree or family dollar i don't really remember the exact store. I just took 2 of them

What is in the pc5 blue pill? I'm Allergic ## I found several oval blue pills with PC5 on the side. What is it for? ## According to NIH, a blue oblong shaped pill marked with PC5 is reportedly identified as "Nighttime Sleep Aid - Maximum Strength", containing 50mgs of Diphenhydramine HCL.

Histodor Cream
2 Replies RSS
Is histodor cream good for Eczema? ## Both of the active ingredients found in this medication are in a class of medications called antihistamines; which work by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms. That said, although Histodor Cream (Diphenhydramine + Mepyramine) may help with some symptoms of Eczema, it may not be the best solution for complete overall treatment. This is because Eczema is not caused by allergies. It is more over due to a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) in the skin. The condition tends to get worse when the person is exposed to certain triggers. Most causes of atopic dermatitis (eczema) are treated with medications that are placed directly on the skin or scalp (called topical medicines). A mild cortis...

Body Is Unbearably Itchy From Iron Infusions
3 Replies RSS
I received iron infusions in the spring of 2016...Here it is December of 2016 and I am suffering from severe itching mainly on my lower legs and also my arms. I have not been told by a doctor that this would be the price I have to pay for building up my iron. I believe that I was given way too much. I have been to a skin Dr, Hematologist, had several blood tests, Etc. I wish that someone can come up with an answer. I would truly appreciate it... Thank you so much!!! ## The NIH and FDA both warn that some side effects caused by iron infusions carry the risk of being permanent, including body aches, and joint pain. It really doesn't have anything to do with being given too much, it's just the nature of how it works in some people's bodies. Does anything help alleviate the itch...
