U 191 white round pill

Small white circle pill with U over 191 (separated by a score line): U ---- 191 That's what it looks like. What is it? ## I believe that the pill which you have is Misoprostol, likely from outside the United States. Part of a 4 pill dose. ## Hello BS, I was not able to find a pill that has the imprint U 191, however, if turned upside down it makes the imprint n 161 and I was able to find a Misoprostol 0.2 MG tral tablet that matches that description. Here is some additional information I pulled from the National Institute of Health's website for the drug (NDC: 3386-161) Active Ingredient: Misoprostol 200 ug Inactive Ingredients: - Hydrogenated Castor Oil - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Crospovidone Manufacturer: Lupin Pharmaceuticals,Inc.

primolut nor 10 mg

Hi. I started taking primolut nor 3 days before my expected date to delay my period. But I have started spotting. Will the spotting stop if I continue taking one tablet daily? Or now is it too late to stop the period? ## Hello, Suki! How are you? Yes, 3 days before your period likely wasn't long enough to delay it. Have you consulted your doctor? If you would like to have better control over when your period occurs in the future, you should talk to your doctor about taking an oral contraceptive. ## Hi, I had DUB and took primolut to stop. When the bleeding stopped after two days whenever i urinate i am passing blot clots which is similar to premenstrual symptom. It's almost 8 days now. should i be worried? or it's because of the tablet? ## Hi. I have a polycystic ovary and i...

I swallowed buprenorphin

I accidentally swallowed 16 Mgs. buprenorphin instead of under tongue. Will it work? Should I take more now? ## No, you should not take more, without your doctor's approval. The only difference between using it sublingually and swallowing them is that it may take longer to enter your blood stream, swallowing it will require about 15 to 20 minutes for it to start working. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## hi I'm Flora, I used 3 tablets of misoprostol 200mcg (I swallowed) n inserted the fourth one..... iv waited almost 3 hours Nw... n no bleeding.... shld I use another or shld I wait.......

If this is the case for you go see a doctor now, I can only take cipro for my kidney infections because of my allergy to sulfa drugs.

My baby accidentially swallowed misoprostol

My 16 month old baby accidentally swallowed this tablet. What do I do? ## Hi Seda, Sorry to hear about what happened. How has your baby been doing since they ingested the tablet? Any strange side effects or unusual changes in behavior to take note of? In any case, I would just encourage you to contact your prescribing doctor and/or call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 first and foremost, in order to accumulate additional opinions on the matter. I'd like to think that your 16 month old would be fine in the long run after its effects wear off, but due to the nature of this drug's indications it sounds like it would also be a good idea to assess potential risk factors by researching the drug's side effect profile to know what to watch for. Does anyone else ha...
