What is A7C ??

Hi, What is white oblong or barrel pill with a split in middle; on each side of split is A7C. Nothing on the reverse side. Thanks ## Hello, I believe I have identified your pill as Benylin day tablets (possibly from Ireland). Based on my research, each white (day) tablet contains the following active ingredients: Paracetamol (500 mg) + Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride (60 mg). Pseudoephedrine is a stimulant, but it is well known for shrinking swollen nasal mucous membranes, so it is often used as a decongestant. It reduces tissue hyperemia, edema, and nasal congestion commonly associated with colds or allergies. Other beneficial effects may include increasing the drainage of sinus secretions, and opening of obstructed Eustachian tubes. The same vasoconstriction action can also result in hy...

Stil Pane side effects

HI, I AM TAKING 14 STILPANE TABS A DAY & I WANT TO STOP. WHAT SHOULD I DO? I AM A MOTHER AND A WIFE. ## Have you consulted a doctor for assistance? Stilpane contains 370mgs of Paracetamol, 185mgs of Meproamate and 8mgs of Codeine. And if you have been taking that many of them in a day, there are actually 2 possible problems. The Codeine is a narcotic, so it can be habit forming and addicting, a sudden cessation of it, in such instances, will cause withdrawal effects, such as fever, chills, nausea and vomiting. However, the most concerning ingredient, wit your level of usage is actually the Paracetamol, long-term use of just regular amounts can cause liver and kidney damage. Amounts over 4,000mgs in a day can be toxic and, in some cases, this have resulted in death. With the amounts ...

bioflu and alaxan fr

I take alaxan at 7pm because my body is in pain.. But then i realized its because i have a flu.. So i decided to take bioflu at 12am. Is it ok? ## Hi yes that's perfectly fine. Alaxan is paracetamol and Ibuprofen - Bioflu contains Paracetamol as well used to treat pain and fever and is known to be generally safe even for pregnant women. ## I have done this in the past and I'm still alive! I recently had my annual physical and my results are good. I'm 40. If body ache calls for relief and Alaxan will provide just that, then that's fine. It's not like you're popping one pill after another. And the fact that there's a 5hr interval was good enough, if your symptoms call for it. Often, with health issues you need to weigh the pros and cons as you listen to your bo...

Bioflu and Decolgen

I have had a cold and cough for the past week so I decided to take both decolgen and bioflu at the same time, but just once and suddenly realized I was a week pregnant... Is it really that bad? ## Hi, i bought the same product on a drugstore today and they told me that taking both drugs at the same time may cause to liver cancer ## Hello Mars, Congratulations! Aaccording to the NIH neither Bioflu nor Decolgen has no observed adverse effects of Paracetamol (Decolgen Forte/Decolgen No-Drowse) on the fetus in humans. This may sound confusing at first but what it more or less means that there isn't enough data currently supporting the fact that this drug harms a fetus. If you are still within the first month of your pregnancy it is unlikely that you have done any substantial damage, how...

alaxan fr and bioflu.

Is it safe to drink at the same time? ## Hello, Jerlit! How are you? No, it is not! They both are listed as containing Paracetamol and taking too much of it in a day or in any 8 hour period can result in overdose toxicity, which may be fatal. If you have a cold or flu, the BioFlu should be enough to help, if your doctor approves of your taking. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Jerlit, fact of the matter is Paracetamol (which is the main ingredient for both medicines) is generally safe even to pregnant women - Bioflu contains 500mg of it while Alaxan contains 325mg. Other ingredients are Phenylephrine HCl and chlorphenamine maleate (for Bioflu) and Ibuprofen (for...
