white square pill 10 on one side m other

Is this pill for add patients or adhd patients. I was taking the small blue pill with 10 on it. It yave me energy an the pharmasit gave me the white square one this time cause he didnt have the other an it makes me sleepy tired an cant concentrait. What can i do!!!! ## I also notice a difference. Not as effective, shorter acting, and since you said it; there is a degree of being tired. Perhaps this formula contains less active ingredient. The pharmaceutical industry has a margin of error. +/- differential of 40% Meaning you may get 8 mg to 12 mg depending on the manufacture But in all honesty these things remind me of the shape with the same logo that was used following a car accident a long time ago. Maybe it truly is sedative and the pharmaceutical distributor messed up big time?? ## ...

Can Metformin Be The Cause Of Burning Sensation While Urinating I Recntly Notice This After Starting A Strip And Went To Doctor For It N She

i started taking a strip of metformi 500 because i want to get pregnant,a couple days after i notice i had a burning sensation when passing urine so i went to the doctor who then said i have uti and she prescribed norilet 400mg but the burnig is still here so am wondering if metformin is anyway responsible. ## No, that isn't something that Metformin is known to cause. Learn more Metformin details here. It is likely a UTI as your doctor stated and you may need to return for another antibiotic if the one that was prescribed hasn't worked. Learn more Norilet details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Over the years I would occasionally have moments where I needed to urinate but not much at all came out and it was accompanied by a burning sensation. I've been pr...

Xanax do you get the same feeling from the mylan a1 pill?

The brand name Xanax provides a good amount of relief, the Mylan doesn't - whats different about them? ## Mylan A1 is noted to be Alprazolam (1mg). Was your Xanax the same or stronger dosage? Alprazolam is the generic brand, so I'm thinking that the difference would be found in the inactive ingredients of each of these pills. The inactive ingredients in Mylan A1 are: - silicon dioxide - croscarmellose sodium - docusate sodium - lactose monohydrate - magnesium stearate - microcrystalline cellulose - sodium benzoate - sodium lauryl sulfate - FD&C Blue No. 2 Variations in inactive ingredients can determine how the drug is metabolized, how much is absorbed, how your body reacts to it, and so forth. Given that information, it's best to just stick to what you think works best ...

Is Ol Tram really Tramadol?

Hello, i just received tramadol 50mg. from HAB pharmaceuticals. There are no markings on the pills. Round, white pills. Blister pack says Tramadol 50mg. is it really Tramadol? The pack also says "Ol Tram". ## Hi anned, From what I could gather, OL-TRAM is reported to be a foreign brand name of Tramadol. However, I think its legitimacy depends on where you ordered it from, since as you may know, many of those sketchy websites can often be unreliable. HAB pharmaceuticals has had some complaints in the past, but as I look at their webpage, they do strike me as being a real pharmaceutical manufacturer that produces real meds out of India. So my assumption is that it's probably real Tramadol, but in reality there's no way of being certain if there are no markings to verify th...

long term side effects of harvoni

I had Harvoni treatment last spring. I am not the same. My nervous system is a wreck. My anxiety problems have increased, depression and lack of motivation. My eyes changed drastically. My thoughts are not focused, I am nervous all the time, can focus or sleep. I had a 2 month migraine. Ringing in the ears is intense. I also was on pigalated interferon and ribivirn, I was pulled off mid treatment because I got so sick. After that treatment, I also had long term side effects. There isn't any back support for post harvoni people, nor are their anyone specializing in the after effect of long term HCV infection, it is NOT just a liver disease, it effects the nervous system and all else. I am at a loss for support with the doctors in my area, none seem to want to do any research and they...

Lyrica Is Dangerous / class action suit anyone?

I have crps in both hands from carpal tunnel release...after several months, I was worse, not better. My workmens comp dr. said " You will have chronic pain the rest of your life and you will just have to learn to live with it"...oh thanks doc for screwing my hands up, not to mention how it has drastically has changed my life and limitations. I have been seeing a pain specialist ever since and that was back in 2001 when I had the release. I was on lyrica for the last 6 years, I have been off of it for three months. Now that I think back to when my severe depression started was not long since I started taking it. I don't know how many times I said I hate my life and I wish I was dead, I had thoughts of taking all my prescriptions and going to sleep for good! By the grace of g...

joint pain with xarelto and memory loss

I am having extreme joint discomfort where I can’t move. I’ve been on it six months in the last 2 months I’ve noticed memory loss. Is that a side effect. I can’t seem to get off Xeralto when I do I get pains where my clots are. I am on 10 mg’s. How long does it take your body to go back to no pain. ## It has been known to cause some pain in arms and legs, as a side effect, as well as headache, according to FDA reports. But this extreme pain and memory loss are not normal side effects. Have you consulted your doctor? This might not be the best medication for you and having clots, you should not just stop taking it, but rather switch to an alternative with your doctor's approval. Are you on any other medications? The memory loss occurring during the last ...

Camber Pharmaceuticals Generic Percocet

Just got Camber Pharm generic Percocet at Walgreens instead of the Actavis brand. It's giving me an upset stomach and causing me to feel weird. Has anyone else had a similar reaction? ## What is the dosage? Can you please post back and clarify? Is it the yellow tablet with T 194 imprinted on it? (NDC 31722-194, 10/325 dosage) Or is it another variation of the dosage from Camber? Percocet is a narcotic analgesic. The FDA warns that it's risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. Editor's note: the information below is from message # 294 which displays the inactive ingredients (fillers) as listed on the manufacturer's website. Inactive Ingredients: - colloidal silicon dioxide - croscarmellose sod...

aurobindo adderall

The worst. Don't get it filled ## 100% agreed!!!! I have been on Adderall generic IR since January 2014. Always filled @ CVS. All previous scripts were manufactured by TEVA. (Large football shaped, orange, sweet tasting & 30mg.) They worked great!!!! Until this past Wednesday (Aug 19th, 2014) I went to pick up my script as usual and didn't think anything of it until the next morning when I had to take one. It wasn't the same shape or taste. (This one was round, orange and a chalky bitter taste.) So I took my usual dosage and Bam Nothing happened, I was like WTF!!!! So I looked at the bottle and this new script was manufactured by Aurobindo. This pill does nothing! I've taken 4 pills total and am calling the pharmacy ASAP.... If you hear this pharmaceutical company...

Hydrocodone - not to overdo it!

I was put on Hydrocodone for 3 years due to a stroke I had. My pain is coming from the brain. The PM'S started me off with 5-325. No results on the pain. Then they increased the dose 7.5-325. Some relief but not much in order to have a quality of life. Then they increased it to 10-325 90 per month. In the wee hours of the morning I would wake up with pain, so I was cutting one in half, leaving me short of pills for the month. So they increased it to 120. I got to where I was taking too many and the PM discharged me for a breach of contract. Then I found another PM. Same thing happened, but this time instead of discharging me they put me on week to week basis - 21 pills a week. I had to visit the doctor's office once a week and then take the script to my pharmacy. Once I proved I...

Tested positive for Cocaine on drug test from Pain Management Doctor.

For the past 5 months I have been treated by a pain management doctor for some nerve damage in my arm. About a month ago I was randomly drug tested, and tested positive for Cocaine. I was honest with him. Told him I did do it, but it was a bad decision I made when I had some people from work over I did not know that well. I had done it maybe 2 or 3 times in the past maybe 5 or 6 years ago, but that is all I have ever done. I never use any type of recreational drug anymore, and I have a drink or 2 maybe once a month. I explained this to him and he cut me off, which I totally understand. I just don't know what to do now. My arm is worse than ever an I'm scared to go see a different pain doc because I don't know if they will be notified of what I did, and I don't know if I ...

what is the maximum mgs you can take per day with suboxone

Oh my gosh, it's so very hard to get a straight answer..all I get is everyone's opinions. I'd love to know what is the maximum dosage of mg a person with Chronic Pain can take PER DAY? Thanks in advance for helping me. ## The maximum recommended dosage of this medication, per day, according to the U.S. FDA is 32mgs, regardless of whether it is being taken for pain, or drug addiction. They also warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Im on 8mg of suboxne can i take tylenol 3 with codeine with the suboxne? ## Dodo verwon is correct with the maximum dose but suboxone has a ceiling which means after 24 mg no matter ...

how to take subutex 54 411

How soon can I take subutex after taking hydrocodone? ## Hello, Becky! How are you? You have to be in full withdrawal, before you can safely take Subutex. Taking it too soon may cause you to go into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addition, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thats not true. You don't have to be in full withdrawal for Subutex. Suboxone is the one u have to wait for to take. Subutex does not have the blocker (Naloxone) in it. So you can take it before u feel like s*** ## I think there is some truth to what Verwon said, though indivi...

cytisine 8mg strips and symbicort spiriva drug interactions

I have COPD and Emphysema I would like to quit smoking this time so I ordered TBX-FREE but the box says not to use if you have depression or asthma. When I asked my Pulmonologist, he wouldn't even look at the box. Just asked if it was prescribed by a Doctor. I have taken Chantix twice both time quitting within 2 wks, first time for 1 year and the next time for a few short months, with no ill effects. I have used wellbutrin and nicotine patch that didn't help at all. ## I tried chantix twice, the first time had bad headaches and stomach aches so I stopped and got a refund. The second time was earlier this year (2016). I took it for the first 2 weeks and had slight side effects but no difference in my smoking urges! I'm not a "cold turkey" kind of person and I'm wi...
