What is the difference in the two medicines? I have two prescriptions. One costs nothing for 90 pills; the other one costs $13.37 for 30 pills. Can I take the lower priced medicine? Both potassium cl er and potassium cl tb are 20 meq each. ## Yes, unless your doctor, or pharmacist says otherwise, you can take either or. However, the FDA, does warn that it can cause some nausea due to its potency, so it should be taken with food.

A 328 R and moon crescent logo

These pills were given to me as Furosemide but when I searched for A328 they show as thyroid tablets. Been taking them for almost three months now. What are they? ## The "R and moon crescent" that you listed in title sounds like the actavis logo. Can you confirm that the logo is on your pills? Also, were these dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States, or are they from a different country? ## Yes. The logo is on one side and the A328 on the other. Walgreens ## Does it look like this? The closest possibility that I've found along these lines is the same as what you're saying - a thyroid pill containing Methimazole 5 mg. The only thing is that it's not reported to have the R and Logo on the back side, but based on the fact that it was manufactured by Actavis Totowa...

Furosemide: V 3169 versus 54 840

My Furosemide dose continues at three 20mg pills twice a day, but a change occurred with the manufacturer. It was Westward (54 840) and now it's Solco Health (V 3169). My daytime blood pressure is now dropping. Is there any correlation between this and the differences in pills? Both are 20mg tablets. ## How low is it dropping? Have you made any other changes to your diet, or lifestyle? Sometimes, as ones blood pressure gets lower, medication doses need to be lowered to keep it from going too low. Are you also making sure that you are staying hydrated? Furosemide works by removing excess fluid from the body, and if you become dehydrated, that will also cause your blood pressure to drop. Other side effects may include dizziness, headache, and increased urination.
