Dicorate Er 500 Side Effects

Dicorate Er 500-one tablet was given by the Neuurologist to my son aged 12 years, after dinner. He has been very agressive and his EEG report says that "Interictal State of seizure disorder". MRI brain report is "The non-contrast MRI findings of brain are within normal limits". By taking one tablet he has been feeling sleepy, but the neurologist has now suggested to take two tablets in a day to get good result. Is it wise to give two tablets in a day to my son. Besides, one Pschyratist has advised to take one tablet Platin 10 Mg every day morning and Rosedin half tablet every day before going to bed. ## I am an alchoholic, and was admitted in a rehab, in the rehab they have been giving me Topirol 100 and Dicorate ER 500(2 tabs) daily for 4 months then , i was discharged,...

Dicorate Er 250

My wife is suffering from sever headache on and off... after tests and scans we found there is a lesion near her brain. a neuro surgeon said, it has to be removed through surgery. however a neuro physician said, head ache is not because of the lesion as it is harmless and has not shown any sign of sudden growth and headache could be due to mental stress and suggested dicorate er 250mg every day before going to bed... after the first two months of the tablet, she has started feeling head aches again... ## With 2 conflicting opinions, I'd suggest she seek another to try to get a definitive answer. Dicorate contains the active ingredient Divalproex Sodium, better known as Valproate Semisodium, its main use is to treat the manic episodes of Bipolar Disorder, though it has been shown eff...

Oblong Pill White And Yellow With 511 Carved Into It

found this pill in my sons pack pack and I want to know what it is ## I haven't been able to find an exact listing for this, but the closest match I'm seeing is a white elliptical/oval shaped pill marked with 511 on one side and blank on the other (in black ink). There doesn't appear to be any yellow on either side, so I'm assuming that this probably isn't your pill. Hopefully this result can at least narrow down some of your options. Another person here on the site was looking for this same pill and was under the impression that it's probably something that's available over the counter. Have you tried asking your son where he got it from? ## I found this very big white pill while cleaning the garage. ( yeah a guy cleaning the garage) anyway it say: A 511 in ...
