oblong light purple pill with ~P~ on one side

Anybody know what this pill is? Have looker on various pill identification sites and can't find it. ## Hi Kristi, I understand that your description denotes squiggly lines ~ on either side of the "P".

purple pill with p on one side

It only has the letter P in between to swirly lines that look kind of like this ?P? ## What kind of pill is this? it's purple with the word p between 2 swirly lines ## If you don't mind my asking, whereabouts did you find or purchase this pill at?

iron infusion side effects concern

I had my first iron infusion on Monday (it is now Sunday) as I am severely iron deficient. I was not informed that there would be any side effects by my doctor or hematologist. Since Monday I have been bedridden with the worst migraines, chronic nausea, shoulder and neck muscle spasms, loss of appetitive, heightened sense of smell which in turn makes me vomit a lot, no energy, swollen glands, the feeling that something is crawling under my skin, itchiness, irritability, needing to urinate excessively, clammy mouth and sore joints. Is this normal? I've been to the doctor and he just gave me anti nausea medication which hasn't worked. I'm freaking out. I've just wasted a whole week in bed and still feel awful. ## Everything you've described are listed as possible side ...

Prilo/gab/flu/levo

I want to know what this cream is for and if there is any side effects ## Hi Lisa, Do you happen to know the full drug names that correspond to each abbreviation? There are so many possible names that come up that I wouldn't want to risk steering you in the wrong direction. Prilosec, Gabapentin, Fluoxetine, and Levofloxacin (or) Levothyroxine are just a few names that come to mind, but I'm not sure if these would all be compounded together in a cream. Please post back if you have any other specific details regarding their actual names and then I can help you take it from there as far as indications and side effects are concerned.

Color change

The last time I purchased Prilosec at my grocery store the color was purple instead of the pick I am used to seeing. It also seems to taste different. Has there been a change or should I be concerned about these new colored pills? ## Hi Cheryl, The color of a medication doesn't usually have anything to do with its formulation. This one could possibly be from a different manufacturer, or flavored. As long as it contains the same amount of ingredients as the last one you had, you should be just fine. If it really concerns you, you can always ask your doctor or a pharmacist. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Prilosec Details I hope this helps, please post back if you need further assistance! ## My dad's prilosec pills are purple.

I am back on omerprazole

7 years ago I had severe diarrhea and one of the tests I had was an upper GI endoscopy. It was done by a general surgeon because there isn't a gastro near by. He said I had a hiatal hernia and told me to take prilosec by Rx at that time. I finally got into a gastro and she said oh no don't take that it causes diarrhea. At the time I also had awful pain and bloating. It turns out I am intolerant to fructose so that problem was solved. Meanwhile she put me on Nexium. I took that for several years and then I started reading about the bone problems. So I put myself on Ranitidine. My reflux has gotten ever so much worse in the past few years. Swallowing issues sent me to my family MD. He made an appointment with the general surgeon (different one) The very first thing he did was writ...

prilosec/allegra

My son was taking prilosec and Allegra prescribed by the same dr. He was overdosed. It caused him to seize and they had to run test on him afterwards . his regular dr said they were giving him too much. This was about3 years ago. Now I was prescribed it by my dr. When I take it regularly my feet and ankles hurt like crazy. But the back pain is so much worse. After being off of it for awhile my back and ankles completely stop hurting at all. Now I remember my son always complained about his back and ankles killing him all the time. It was the medicine. He was only 13 at the time. And the drs are like he is fine. Its probably growing pains. But I know it wasn't its doing the same thing to me. And it also made my acid sooo much worse now. I actually throw up stomach acid now. I am so m...
