Under what conditions should one take methylcobalamin 500 mg?

Zofran Shelf Life

What is the Zofran Shelf Life ## "Zofran (ondansetron) tablets have good stability, and have a shelf life of 2 years when stored below 30 degrees C." Referenced from: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2533901 I hope this helps to answer your question! ## Is that 2 years from the time the Zofran was manufactured, or from the date received? There is no indication on my Rx bottle of the date it was manufactured. ## The expiration date is set from the date of manufacture. It's nerarly impossible to know if you have short dated drugs unless you ask the pharmacy what the expiration is when they dispense it. ## I have nausa meds that expired 12/2016. Are they still ok to take? ## What is the shelf life of Zofran/Ondansetron after it has been opened ## I purchased zofran/ondansetron 8 mg in d...

small round white pill 233 on one side blank the other

Its Zofran /or the generic version Ondanstron. Its for nausea and used to treat Hyperemesis, or in laymans terms : It fixes nonstop puking. ## This cannot be verified, because the Ondansetron tablet that uses the 233 on it also has a 93 or TEVA on the opposite side. I cannot find anything that matches this description of just having a 233 on it. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## A small white pill with just 233 on it is a 5miligram roxicodone, or oxycodone, it's a pain pill sort of like percocet but with no acetaminophen. ## Oxy, roxys 15's and 30's with no acetaminophen. Ok? ## I found the same thing. It is an oxycodone 5 mg tablet. Manufactured by Sun pharmaceuticals.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. Did it help her? ## My client is on daily methadone. The combination of Zofran and methadone can change a QT screening, which can be very harmful.

Generic Zofran

I took a pill from my Zofran bottle. It was generic. I've not taken this before. I looked at it before I took it. Then I looked at the others in the bottle and realized the one I took didn't look the same. Of course it's gone now so I don't know numbers but it had the markings on one side to split 4 ways. I don't see this one in the pictures. Could I have taken something different? I'm concerned that I don't know what I took. ## Without seeing the pill and knowing the markings, I can't be certain. However, it was most likely just another generic for Zofran. It is very common for a pharmacy to add in a couple from a different manufacturer, if they are a couple short on filling your fill prescription. You can ask them, they'll be able to tell you. The F...

is zofran a benzodiazepene

I take methadone and thats it. Sometimes I take 8mg of zofran for bad nausea, but I my lab work keeps showing benzo and I dont understand why. Could someone tell me so I can show the clinic that I do not take benzos please? ## Is it true or not that (Ondansetron) Zofran 4mg has any type of Benzodiazepines? Yes or No????? Would live to have a relpy. Thank you. ## No, Zofran (Ondansetron) is not considered a benzodiazepene.

As to the original question, if you are taking different medications I'd bring in proof of your prescriptions before the lab work is done and they should be able to factor in any err...

is zofran a narcotic

I have a sister who was given Zofran through an iv during labor. and they said that their baby now has narcotics in her system. Is Zofran considered a narcotic? ## concerned no Zofran is not a narcotic , its for nausea. they may have given her something for pain in her iv, but they wont give her anything that would harm the baby, ## I was just wondering it would not happen to have any in epidural would it? I know that epidurals are the most commonly used when in labor to decrease or stop the pain. that wouldn't be it would it? ## concerned once they start the epidural there should be no need for pain meds, unless they gave it to her before the epidural was started, which its still ok .they wont give anything to hurt the baby. lots of stuff going on shes having a baby! ask your nurse...
