bl 20 white and green capsule

I have found a green and white capsule pill with 20 marked in black on the green part of the pill and BL marked on the white part in black also. I'm not sure if it's a anti-depressant or not. ## Did you find out what these were? From what i can gather online they may be Fluoxetine ## Fluoxetine 20 mg. I have the same meds and that's exactly what they look like. ## I'm taking 20mg Fluoxetine and they match your description spot on. Capsules, half pale green marked with a black 20 and half creamy-white marked with a black BL. ## Hello Efs1324, I hope you are having a wonderful day. As the others have previously mentioned I was able to find google images that would suggest that the pills you have are Fluoxetine (Prozac). Unfortunately I was not able to pull up the brand and...

Fluoxetine sinus problems

I have been on fluoxetine for eight months. I am on 40 mg/day. I've always been prone to sinus infections, but my sinus problems have gotten worse and now I have this pain in my sinuses everyday. I realized that I started having worse sinus issues around the same time I started taking fluoxetine - its even documented in my doctor's notes that I have been complaining of sinus pains and infections since about 7 months ago. She says it's a rare side effect so fluoxetine is probably not the culprit, but the sinus pain has gotten so bad that I'm willing to stop taking the meds (the other side effects like the nightmares are driving me nuts too). Anyway, has anyone else had sinus problems related to fluoxetine or Prozac? ## Hello, Alaska! How are you? Actually, they aren't...

Alembic Fluoxetine Make Me Sick

I've been taking a generic green & white capsule of 20 mg Prozac (fluoxetine) for a few years. My pharmacy gave me blue capsules mfg by alembic this time & I am feeling so sick for 4 days now. I thought I had a stomach bug, but I've never had a bug linger this long. I had diarrhea & vomiting on day 2 & 3, jittery sleep, then deep bouts of sleep, bad headache, night sweats & nightmares. ## Ditto! I almost puked this am, and have been sick all day. Had major side effects after my pharmacy switched me to blue caps. Was taking Sandoz white and green for years with no problem. I called my pharmacy and requested alternative as I can’t barf every day ## I recently got a refill and my pharmacy switched to Alembic generic (dark blue capsules). I took it only abo...

blue and white capsule 872 par

i lost alot of weight it was .after i stoped taking them i gained it back . but i landed a trucking job . iloved that i had only the dry mouth as my only side effect . ## Hello, Raymond! How are you? Par Pharmaceutical lists this capsule as containing 40mgs of Fluoxetine, which is a generic for Prozac. The FDA classifies this medication as an antidepressant, weight loss can be a normal side effect of it, it is usually most prominent in people that are underweight to begin with, it's other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, anxiety, and dry mouth. Is there anything I can help with? ## DOES YOUR COMPANY GET ANY INGREDIANCE FROM CHINA, INDIA WHICH HAVE BEEN RECALLED BECAUSE OF IT BEING CARCINOGEN

blue Fluoxetine causes heartburn

Recently my pharmacy began giving me a new version of fluoxetine, which I have taken for MANY years with no problems.... however the blue fluoxetine gives me horrible heart burn. I use to take them at night before bed, but couldn't sleep, so decided to start taking them in the morning and still get the heartburn. I don't take them with any other meds. I tried an empty stomach, and after eating, but the results are still the same. I also get a bad headache (I think from the heartburn.) Has anyone figured out how to avoid this problem? ## Hi Jen, I truly believe that the root cause of this specific heartburn side effect lies within the "inactive" ingredients found in the blue Fluoxetine pill. Reason I say that is because, when you switch brand names or manufacturers, the d...

Blue A106 Fluoxetine?

This is the first time Costco mail order pharmacy has sent me these pills, the previous ones I have been taking for five years were also a generic but I do not remember their color but think they were two colors, one color was white and I believe the other was green. Ever since I started taking the blue pills, my FBSS pains in my legs have greatly increased. I took the fluoxetine primarily for relief from these pains, along with 150 mg Lyrica, 2mg clonoxepam, 50mg prestiq, 25mg amitriptyline, and 50mg lamotrigine daily. Is it possible that these new blue pills, which I understand are made in India by Alembic, are sufficiently different than the previous generic Fluoxetine to cause this increase in pain. Please help, the pain has been terrible since making this change. Thank you. ## The ...

Reduce 15 Mg

A friend of mine got some slimming pills called Reduce 15 mg that he bought in Thailand. They are not allowed in the country where I live, so I can't consult my doctor. I'm healthy but I have suffered from stress due to too much work, and have been medicated for that a couple of times, though not currently. I'm not fat, but I have gained 20 kg due to stress. Do you know which secondary efects these pills could have or if I should take them at all? ## From what I can find, Reduce contains the active ingredient Subutramine, which has been pulled from the market in many countries, due to the severe dangers associated with it. It can cause cardiac related dangers, such as: accelerate heart rate, trouble breathing, elevated pulse and elevated blood pressure. There have been some ...

Other side effects may include nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, weight loss, and headache. However, there is also a chance that they are not due to the medication.

Broke open fluoxetine

I decided to break open my 40mg capsule and swallow it. BAD IDEA. It burned my throat like no tomorrow and made my whole head numb....Gross tasting and made me vomit. Whoever might think this a good idea... Just don't do it! Oh and it made me feel like I was choking to death also....Great...Worse than the anxiety I already had. Perfect... ## It is to prevent such effects, that they are made into a capsule form. Many medications will do odd things if you ingest them improperly, that is why tablets and capsules were invented. And yes, most of them also taste disgusting. Thanks for posting the warning for others! Are you feeling better, now? ## Whoever has to take fluoxetine make sure they drink lot's of water with it .I had just finished a night shift and took my capsule with mayb...
