dolo neurobion forte

Injectable. Available in Mexico by prescription. I purchased DNF at a mexican pharmacy (as prescribed), a course of treatment - 1 small box containing 3 ampules of a brownish liquid along with a second small box containing a corresponding number of new, clean, individually wrapped syringes. The DNF box of ampules, was labelled front and back with a complete list of the content of the ampules, directions for use, and warnings.Treatment for me was 1 injection a day for three days, each given by the doctor in his office. I had no prior knowledge of Dolor neurobion forte - (not available in the U.S)., a Merck product. I was in central Mexico with a terrible flare up of sciatica. I went to a good Mexican physician - who despite our initial dual bit of the language barrier - was able to carry...

clear oblong capsule with tiny white beads

Clear oblong capsule with tiny white beads inside. there are no markings on it at all. ## I found the pill in my sons room and was just wondering what is was. ## I am sorry, if there are no markings on it, then there is no way to positively identify it. The only thing I can tell you is that it is not a legal U.S. prescription drug , as by law, they are all required to have an imprint somewhere on the tablet or capsule to enable their identification. ## yeah, i found a pill just like that in my brother's room. he was recently doing marijuana and i think that maybe he is doing other drugs too so if u have any info on it please message me. ## I just found this pill in my brothers room... we thought it may be a steroid since he's into sports... but i dont think thats the case... any...

its a thin, clear capsule, white powder, no imprint, nothing to tell me what medication it is. ## Clear capsule appears white from powder inside no imprint ## Sorry, if there is no imprint, there is no way to positively identify it, unless you would have it lab tested. ## Possibly Niacin, Vitamin B-3, one of a few unmarked white capsules.

white round pill blank on one side and only a score line on the other

I was at the gym when I found a flatish white round pill, blank on one side and blank on the other side besides a single score mark. It's about the size of a large pea. ## Hi Vendi, Because the description of this pill is so broad/vague, I think there's only so much one can do to narrow it down through research alone. On that note, here is a list of other white round pills reportedly bearing a score line on one side with no other markings: Vitamin C oral tab 500mg Vitamin B6 oral tab 50mg Niacin 100mg tab Melatonin 3mg tab Counterfeit/Alleged 'Hydrocodone' 10/325 (from Costa Rica) This might only turn out to be a small list of possibilities at that. So your best bet in my opinion may just be to have its contents analyzed by a lab and/or drug panel in order to pinpoint a ...

white oval pill 500 on one side other something that looks like a lower case b but the bottom part of is shaped hexagon then 212. Found in my classroom. ## Hello, Cautious! How are you? That lower case b logo is used on some products manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list this tablet as containing 500mgs of Niacin in an extended release formulation. This formulation and dosage is frequently used to help lower cholesterol, though it may also be used to treat a deficiency. Its most common side effects may include nausea, diarrhea, cough and flushing. Is there anything else I can help with?
