TCL 280 white pill

found in sons clothing at the morgue: oval lg. white pill tcl 280 ## Please help me identify the pill we found in my sons pocket in the morgue Lg. White oval pill with TCL 280 on it ## Sorry, I wish I could help, but I checked many databases and cannot find a listing for a pill with this marking. It could possible be something available over the counter or a foreign medication, since they are not regulated like US prescription drugs are. ## I don't know how much this will help, but the TCL in the imprint code seems to indicate that the manufacturer could be Time-Cap Labs, Inc. Their web site and contact info: Time-Cap Labs, Inc 7 Michael Avenue Farmingdale N.Y. 11735 tel 631.753.9090 fax 631.753.2220 They seem to have a product listing on their site (along with pictures), and you mi...

white oblong pill score PH 063

I found a pill in my son's room. I don't know what it is. It is a white oblong pill with a score PH 063 on one side. Does anyone know what this pill is? ## This is another one that has been posted about a few times recently, but I can't find a listing for it. Are you in the U.S.? Does anyone else know what this is? ## Several people in a related discussion thread have stated this to be Guaifenesin 400 mg (a generic Mucinex), which is used to thin out mucus. ## It is a generic Mucinex...I use them. ## It is mucus relief dm and it contains DXM, which can make you feel like you're high or something. ## Actually, it is just the basic generic Mucinex Expectorant, there is no Anti-Histamine associated with it... ## dxm does not make you feel high. is that all your about is get...

Large oval white pill with 1200 on one side and “xenuciM” on the other

The other side has “xenuciM” printed on it. It seems like Mucinex backwards and spelled wrong. Are there fake Mucinex pills? ## I can't imagine why anyone would try to counterfeit a cheap over-the-counter expectorant such as Mucinex, with very little if any financial incentive. Whereabouts did you get this pill from? Was it found within an existing batch? If so, I wonder if it could simply be an imprint error from the manufacturer... If it were me, I'd probably take it into a local pharmacy for a second opinion because that's definitely not normal. On the other hand, where or how you acquired it could also speak for itself. Please post back if you happen to have any more information.

is ok to take mucinex and sulfamethoxazole tmp in the same time

I been taking Mucinex (fast-max) for Cold,Flu & Sore Throat and, I didn't feel better...So I found in my cabinet Sulfamethoxazole tmp ds and I took one tonight because I feel like i have ear infection ## Hello, Beatriz! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but you should always double check with your doctor or pharmacist to be certain. Additionally, you shouldn't take an antibiotic, unless your doctor confirms the presence of an infection, because otherwise you create the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I take smz/tmp after taking mucinex my throat hurts so bad

Phlegm in throat

Every single day I wake up and spend about 5 minutes hacking up thick, yellow mucus. It is so thick it keeps me from swallowing and even blowing my nose. I have been to 3 Odontologists and no one has been able to help me. I have tried a number of nasal spays and prescription medications with no success. In contrast my nose runs excessively to the extent that I blow my nose on paper towels instead of tissues. Mucinex doesn't help either. I am desperate for some relief. Can someone help me? ## Have you tried an ENT, or an allergist/immunologist? It may not be directly related to your teeth, or an abnormality there. Allergies can cause the same type of symptoms and that would be outside the realm of an Odontologist. Additional question, do you smoke? ## No, I don't smoke. I have ha...

Can I Take Mucinex And Methadone

Im sick and wanted to know if i can take mucinex fast max with my methadone and if it is ok to do so ## I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but you should double check this information to be certain. Learn more Mucinex details here and you can find more Methadone details here. The major issue I see could be due the combination worsening the side effects, so you may experience more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I'm on 100 mg of methadone and I'm sick and bought a box of expectorant mucus relief that says 400 mg of guaifenesin. Is it safe to take this medicine with methadone? ## NEVER, NEVER TAKE MUCINEX WITH METHADONE. Extreme hallucinations and paranoia result. This happened to a family member two times a...
