oxycodone 30mg a215 or a51. what is the difference???

what is the difference between the a 215 and the a51 30 milligram ## Hi Michael, The A 215 Oxycodone 30mg tablet is made by Actavis, and contains the following set of inactive ingredients: corn starch + FD & C Blue No. 2 + FD & C Blue No. 2 Aluminium Lake + lactose monohydrate + microcrystalline cellulose + silicon dioxide + stearic acid + glycolate The A 51 Oxycodone 30mg tablet is made by Amneal, and contains the following set of inactive ingredients: corn starch + lactose monohydrate + microcrystalline cellulose + sodium starch glycolate + stearic acid + D & C Yellow No. 10 + FD & C Blue No. 2. As you can see here, there aren't any major differences other than a few subtle changes in the list of binders/fillers. However, to my understanding, even a slight differen...

Prolia Injection Side Effects

Aprox 2 weeks after the prolia injection I started to experience nausea and weight loss. Also, loss of appetite and a keen sense of smell developed. It was difficult to eat or smell cooked food. It has been months and these symptoms have decreased dramatically. In contacting their website they would not confirm or deny this as a side effect of the drug. Has anyone else experienced nausea w/this drug? ## Hi Bonnie, From what I could gather, the following side effects are associated with Prolia, that may be similar to what you had experienced: -nausea -tingling in your fingers, toes, or around your mouth -pain, numbness, swelling, or drainage from mouth, teeth, or jaw -vomiting Referenced from: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a610023.html You or your doctor can also report various s...

Xanax Yellow Bar R 039

I heard they are NOT time released....I also heard they are better than the whites and greens....I guess it's matter of opinion but I'd like some feedback. I'm taking a survey cuz I just got a prescription filled.... ## You are right in that these are not the time released ones, but rather the generic Alprazolam 2 mg tablets. As far as their quality being better than "the white ones", this is actually based on inactive ingredients that may or may not be present in each specific tablet and not based on the drug itself. The drug itself doesn't change. What changes are the ingredients they put with it. These inactive ingredients are actually active and play a detrimental role as to how each drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, yo...

Is Soma a narcotic muscle relaxer

My doctor has told me that that soma is a narcotic and she does not want to prescribe it to me any more. I suffer from chronic back pain as well as muscle spasms. I have tried other muscle relaxers as well as anti inflamatories and none of then do not work. Soma is the only one I have found to work for me without making me sleepy. Any information you can give me i would really appreciate. Thank you, Dana ## No, it is not a narcotic. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, but it has been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. However, what you have to remember is that prescribing it is entirely up to your doctor, she is not obligated to do so. You also have the option of finding a different doctor, for any reason you choose. Are there any other questions? ...

p b pink, round, C on reverse

I have a round pink tablet, with an indent on one side, so that one can break pill in halve. On the side of the indent two letters appear, namely P B. On the other side of the tablet is a large C. ## what is this? i found one in my daughters room and i have never seen them before. She is 9 years old. ## pls tell me what this is i found some in my sons drawer ## It is Propranolol 40 mg: This medicine is a Pink Tablet imprinted with "P B" and "C" [1] Propranolol is used to treat high blood pressure, chest pain caused by angina, and irregular heart beat. It is also used to protect the heart after a heart attack and to prevent migraines. It is a beta-blocker. It is used to slow down the activity of the heart and decrease blood pressure. In general this drug is used if you ha...

baclofen vs soma

I have been takeing soma for muscle spasms for a while know. Another doctor wanted me to try Baclofen 20mg. I found that the Baclofen made me feel a little strange and dopey. The Soma does not. I do like to take the Baclofen at night instead of Soma as it makes me very sleepy and does help me sleep better and longer. I like the Soma for dureing the day because it does not make me sleepy and can function better. When my body feels tired I experience more pain and spasm,hence the Baclofen when need to sleep. Hope this helps ## It is normal for medications to work differently, for different people. Sometimes, when your doctor wants you to try something different, you have to give it a go, for a few weeks and then just let them know if it has bad effects or doesn't work as well for you....

Soma Versus Baclofen

I was recently switched from soma to baclofen. The Baclofen makes me feel very strange and I cannot function as well on it as I can with Soma. It makes me sleepy, and frankly just makes me feel like crap. The Soma works better for me as far as muscle spasms. The Baclofen does help spinal pain but does not work as quickly as Soma on spasms. My doctors in Alabama refuse to prescribe me Soma even though I have been put on different muscke rekaxers, Soma works best with my body. Why will doctors nor prescribe what works best for the individual. Every thing works different on different people. I want to be able to function and not be a zombie. What should I do. My pain clinic doctor only wants to get meds from him, but if he wont prescribe what works, I will get my pain meds from him and som...

HAVING UNENDING MUSCLE SPASMS IN UPPER BACK, ALMOST BAD AS A KIDNEY STONE PAIN YEARS AGO. WHICH IS BETTER I HAVE HAD SOMA,AND SOME PEOPLE SAY FLEXERIL.SOMA JUST MADE ME SLEEPY,ALSO TRIED HYDROCODON#5OT MUCH BETTER? ## Have you consulted a doctor? Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol and Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, both of which are muscle relaxants, so they will only help if your pain and problems are caused strictly from muscle pain and spasms. Hydrocodone is a narcotic, that may help with most types of pain and there are higher dosages available that contain 7.5mgs and 10mgs of it. However, only your doctor is going to be able to help you determine what is causing the problem and arrive at a proper treatment option. ## Soma is the only med I...

Soma (carisoprodol) in Oklahoma

My GP recently stopped prescribing me Soma after many years of successful treatment with no other changes in medications. I go to a pain specialist for long term injury and they do not prescribe soma. I've heard that the best bet for getting back to my previous treatment plan may be to find a new GP who would prescribe soma. Does anyone have any idea of how to find this out about the specific doctors or know of any in the Tulsa, OK area who do? Please let me know, I cannot take all of the other muscle relaxants I've been prescribed to try. ## Soma is and does many things but rest assured it does not provide "successful treatment" of any part of the body. That is why it is being slowly phased out ## I'm looking for a doctor who prescribes soma in Tulsa, OK. I have bee...

Severe constipation from Prolia injections?

Anyone have this problem? I was given two shots over the last year no problem. Third shot in November and I cannot resolve my severe constipation. Nothing helps. I eat enough fiber, drink enough water, and work out most days. Miralax doesn't help. Any suggestions? ## Heat some prune juice and drink it but make sure you have easy access to a bathroom. Also pitted prunes. Heat them also after adding water to cover and microwaving them till plump. Not all at once. It may work like dynamite!!! Just a cup of the juice at night, go in morning or whenever it wants you to! ## The antibody Denosumab® or Prolia® for skeletal/bone loss issues comes with a long list of side effects with some being very severe. Constipation is among the top three, so it happens quite often. These issue...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts

I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

Dilantin for anxiety, depression, and ADHD

Does anyone have experience of being treated with Dilantin for anxiety/depression/ADHD symptoms ? If so, could you advise me on dosage - Thanks ## Hope things have gotten better since you posted this. I have depression and anxiety as was adult ADD. I take patil. 10mg of Ativan as needed for the anxiety and to help me sleep when I can't calm my mind, and also Ritalin 10mg 2 times a day. The Ritalin being added really made a difference. I am not wanting to stay in bed. It has helped with my productivity and has helped me focus at work. I know this will not work for everyone but it sure did for me. ## I have taken Dilantin since I was 9 months old, then all kinds of drugs. Does anyone else have feedback after 10 years of Dilantin?

Oxycontin 60mg vs Oxycodone 60mg are they the same

I have been taking Oxycontin60mg but I am now in my coverage donut and can not afford my prescription. I had taken Oxycodone once before and it just didn't work as well. Was that phycological or is there a difference in the 2 medications. Run out of this months prescription in 3 days. Help. ## oxycontin = time released oxycodone. same drug. the time release will distribute the medication over a period of time, and without it the entire dose will be administered at once. ## Okay, I remove the incorrect information, because Pharma Guy is absolutely correct. They are the same medication, Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Oxycontin, the only operative factor is that it is in a controlled release formulation. So, whether or not the Oxycodone you get will work the same for you will al...

I have a round red pill with G2 imprinted on it. Can this be used for pain related to gout and swelling? ## This tablet is manufactured by Rugby and they list it as containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen, a generic or store brand of Advil, or Motrin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yes, but drink water with it...a full glass.

Rhodes/Purdue buprenorphine hcl 8mg RP b8 vs Roxanne 54 411

I have made the switch from the 8mg films to 8mg buprenorphine tablets only. With all the research I've done and experience I do my best to stay away from actavis mylan and nowadays sandoz. I noticed everyone has enjoyed the Roxanne now westward generics amongst hi-tech coming in second/mylan. I have no experience with mylan bup and don't want to take the risk even as mylan has always been a waste imo. I'm not a fan of allergan (actavis) taking over watson so depending on the drug dispenses I most stay away. There are as of now 7 manufacturers of generic buprenorphine hcl 8mg (generic subutex). They are in order of my preferred with not much experience except with brand name: *roxanne (now westward pharma)- 54 411 *hi tech- 8 ^(arrow) *mylan- M924 *teva (allergen/activas own...
