white round pill LFT

Found this white round pill with LFT on one side and a score on the other. Need to know what it is. ## Have you worked out what the pill with LFT OM IT IS YET? ## Is your pill approximately 6 millimeters in size? From what I could find, that's the alleged diameter or size of the white round pill with LFT on one side and a score on the other. I'm still searching to more specific details but am not seeing very much information on it. If I had to guess I would assume that this particular tablet is either no longer manufactured or possibly of foreign origin. How or where did you guys come across these pills? ## It may be a sublingual anti-anxiety tablet that you put under your tongue to dissolve. ## It's Lorafix hayfever tablets. An antihistamine.

this is a tablet wi the letter L and 10 on it, it is scored down the middle the other side is blank ## I cannot find this listed in any of my resources. was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere?

Is the white oval football shaped pill with L 612 a 1mg xanax? It is from a Canadian Pharmacy. ## The tablet matching this description is manufactured by Perrigo company and they list it as being an over the counter product that contains 10mgs of Loratadine.

Excessive eating or weight gain with LORATADINE, anyone??

Just recently I complain to my doctor about my allergies, he put me on loratadine 10 mg once a day. It has been brought to my attention by my son, that I am eating way more than usual. We were just recently at an all-you-can-eat buffet and he looked at my plate and said man mom you sure are eating a lot, not that it's a bad thing I'm just saying normally you be done in like 10 maybe 15 and you're almost done with that whole plate. And it made me really take a step back and analyze how much I've been eating lately. In doing so I realized that my appetite has increased double if not probably triple, because not only do I this medication, but I also take three or four medications that suppress my appetite so I know he is right. In researching I thought the corporate was my ...

Taking Loratadine after heart surgery

I had Aortic Valve replacement 4 weeks ago. Now I am starting to have my usual fall allergies and starting to sneeze and cough and it really hurts. I have always taken an allergy pill called loratadine. Is it still safe to take that even if I am experiencing bradycardia now? ## It would be best not to take anything, without the approval of your cardiologist. Mine said that Benadryl was safe, but it may depend on what other medications you are taking. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and drowsiness. What other medications are you currently taking?
