Bioflu and Alaxan (Ibuprofen + Paracetamol)

My friend took Bioflu and Alaxan (Ibuprofen + Paracetamol) at the same time. The result was severe allergies on her whole body and face... Also caused dizziness, headache and loss of taste. What can she do about it and how many days will it take for the allergies to be gone? Please give us some advice. ## Bioflu contains Chlorpheniramine and Paracetamol, and Alaxan contains Ibuprofen and Paracetamol, so they should not be taken together, it can be very dangerous if someone takes too much Paracetamol, the NIH guidelines warns that no one should exceed 1,000mgs of it in any 8 hour period, and no more than 3,000mgs in any 24 hour period. As to the reaction, yes, it sounds like she is allergic to some ingredient in one of them, but she should have it checked out by a doctor to be safe. It i...

ardosons vs. Ibuprofen 800 mgs for knee n hip pain

I've been taking Ibuprofen 800 mgs per day for hip and knee pain. However I was recommended Ardosons for same problem and the pain relief is dramatic in just 2 days, taking 1 dose only. My concern is the interaction it may have with the blood pressure medication I am currently taking, Hydrochlorothiazid 25 mg. I know ibuprofen can also raise blood pressure. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Ardosons is listed as containing the active ingredient Betamethasone, which is a steroid class medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, acne, weight gain, nervousness and insomnia. It can also raise blood pressure and heart rate, so it shouldn't be taken, without your physicians approval. Another issue is that it may cause fluid retention, which ...

Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients

Is narcotic pain medicine becoming a thing of the past? Why are doctors across America phasing out the practice of prescribing effective pain medication? Will big pharmaceutical companies ever truly understand what it's like to face the other side of the coin? Lately there's been a musty scent in the air surrounding the use of prescribed narcotic pain medication. Many doctors appear to be running scared as the DEA scours through fields of medical records, inspecting prescribing pads like a mouse scavenges for food in a dimly lit cellar. Should the day come when doctors recommend Ibuprofen to a feeble man who's been involved in a terrible car accident (breaking several bones / requiring extensive surgery), is this doctor at risk of malpractice when there are more effective op...

reddish brown pill 51 imprint

This pill is oval and only has a 51 imprint on it. It is white in the inside and has no other numbers but 51 no other imprint or anything. ## This may be a long shot, but there's a 200mg Ibuprofen tablet that's brownish-red and oblong with l2 on one side and blank on the other. If you hold it upside down it could appear similar to 5l, depending on the condition of the tablet? For verification, the National Drug Code is 49035-517 and it appears to be a product of Walmart. Perhaps you can contact your local pharmacy and/or poison control to see if this sounds like a possible match. Whereabouts did you get it from? ## How would a 5 look like a 2, even upside down? Seriously.... Type a "2", then turn your phone upside down and look at it. Does it look like a 5? ## David is c...

800mg ibuprofen i10 pill for toothache

Hi. I have a really bad toothache. I took one i10 pill about three hours ago, but the pain is still killing me. Can I take another one? ## No, it would be best to not take more than prescribed, or to take it more often than you've been instructed by your doctor. The FDA warns that taking too much of can increase your risk of experiencing stomach ulceration, bleeding, liver damage, and hypertension. Have you visited your dentist, yet? They will be the best person to consult on what can be done to rectify this issue. ## I have a severe toothache and have been taking ibuprofen 800mg 3 to 4 times a day, for two days so far. Is this harmful? Is prescription ibuprofen considered an antibiotic? ## It’s the recommended dose but if your toothache is really bad I would go to a dentist t...

L522 oval white pill

What is an oval white pill with imprint L522? ## L522 is Ibuprofen 800 mg manufactured by Perrigo Pharmaceuticals. (NDC 10768-7522). It's a prescription strength NSAID pain reliever. (Normally, an over the counter tablet of Ibuprofen is only 200 mg). ## I’ve been prescribed the 800mg one by my Dr. it is just a slow release version, that’s what he told me. Rather than take a few 200mg now and then, the slow release works in your body continually.

Doctors pain medications

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to you people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people like you all the time who go from practice to practice with your stories trying to get narcotics. You need to go to drug rehab, find a psychiatrist, do physical therapy, lose weight, and get a job!! This is no way to live and we do not want to jeopardize our licenses feeding into your addiction. I have personally been in three serious car accidents (none were my fault) and have had back surgeries, injections, PT etc. but have NEVER taken controlled substances except for two days after surgery. I have chronic back pain but I exercise and take care of myself and go on with my life!! Evidence-based practice tells us that narcotics are no better and pain con...

white round pill i 135

White round pill, top half says I, bottom says 135..... The back is blank. What is it? ## Hello, Chase! How are you? I'm sorry, but I don't see a listing in the NIH databases for a round tablet with this marking. Could you please double check and post back? I do see one for a tablet with a marking of IP 135 that is round, and white, which is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals, they list it as containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen, which is used to treat pain, fever, and headache. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. ## Allopurinol. Hopefully, because it was just given to my daughter by Walgreens, however, the pill she got from CVS last month looked larger. We've been looking...

Need to identify an orange colored pill with 44-333

Orange Caplet with 44-333 stamped on the body ## A long orange pill with 44-333 stamped on one side of the pill ## Hello, I have been searching all over but I just can't seem to find a pill that matches your description. I was able to find a pill that matches all of your description except instead of 44-333 as the imprint it's a 44-393. Is it possible that the 9 is slightly rubbed off or hard to read and it's actually a 3? Just in case I will provide you with the information I found on that pill as I wasn't able to pull up anything for the 44-333.
