What is Betametasona Clotrimazol Gentamicina cream used for?

I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is this cream available in the States? Is it SAFE? ## @ERQ, The combination of Betametasona + Clotrimazol + Gentamicina is marketed towards treating various skin conditions such as pain, inflammation, itching, bacterial/fungal infections, etc. From what I've seen mentioned in another thread here, this cream is allegedly available with your doctor's prescription here in the US. However further reports suggest that it costs only a fraction of the price down in Mexico for the same ointment (i.e. $30 in the US and less than $2 in Mexico). Given this information, my suggestion would be to just get it prescribed in the US since the cost of driving to Mexico and back from Texas is probably a lot more than the difference you'd end up saving in the price...

Epclusa side effects

Hello. I am 16 months post epclusa and feel worse than when I started. I was a server for over 40 years. Full of energy. Then hep c happened. I had epclysa for 12 weeks. Now I am in bed most of the tune from no energy. My ears are ringing. I feel deflated. Anyone else feel like this? My hep c nurse waived off my complaints. ## Hi Kathleen, I really feel for you, I finished Epclusa a year ago and like you I've had so many side effects l can hardly walk most afternoons due to leg joint pain. I get exhausted so easily, nausea, numb toes/fingers; probably a circulation problem. I did not have any of these problems pre-treatment. I've also got Edema on my legs and my stomach is really swollen. I feel so uncomfortable and unbalanced. If I mention this to the hep C liver people they ju...

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick

I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Xanax In San Antonio, TX

I recently moved to San Antonio, TX and need to find a local doctor that will prescribe me xanax for my anxiety. ## I am not familiar with doctors in that area, but one piece of advice I can offer is not to call doctors and ask if they will prescribe a certain medication. When you do this, you will usually just get told no immediately, because most doctors see it as drug seeking behavior. The best thing you can do, if someone does recommend a doctor, is to set up and appointment and make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records. Most doctors are more apt to follow the prescribing practices of their colleagues, when they can see the documented information. ## alamo mental health. dr earl stenger. My first visit I requested them for anxiety theywork great. however he eill no...

Does Neurontin Affect MRI Results

I just started taking 900mg Neurontin 3 times daily for nerve pain in neck. I am due to have an MRI to see if there is nerve damage, will taking this med change the reading of the MRI? ## I haven't found any warnings that you shouldn't take it when having one, so I have to assume it doesn't. Learn more Neurontin details here. You may want to check with your doctor to be certain, but usually they will warn you, when you need to stop taking any certain medication before a test. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Does it effect your MRI Results ?

So yesterday I FINALLY RECEIVED my prescription of Pain-O-Soma in the blister packs that are from (Supposedly) HAB Pharmaceuticals & they ARE / WERE AWFUL!!!! I took 3 & #1) they DID NOT FEEL LIKE ANY BRAND OF SOMA THAT'S MADE HERE IN THE GOOD OLD UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA & #2) I think that they may have even given me MORE // WORSE MUSCLE SPASMS!!!! I can't believe that I f***in wasted close to $200.00 on these things & then had to wait for over 3 weeks to receive them... They came from India... So now I've got over 120 of these damn things, they're in the blister packs & they're a plain white pill with no numbers or anything on them except for a strait line on one side of the pill... I read about these in these forums & because there were mor...

Zolpidem Generic

ALL CVS pharmacies just changed the zolpidem from MYLAN manufacturer (out of PA) to TORRENT in India. Because generics can certain behave differently, I am nervous about taking the (10 mg) oblong peach Torrent brand one after reading some things online. I also don't like the idea of CVS using from out of the country manufacturer which HAS to be due to a better price because MYLAN brand is still very readily available. Any comments? ## The country doesn't matter, as long as the manufacturer has approval from the FDA for their products to be sold in the U.S., CVS or any other pharmacy, can stock their products. There can be some differences in generic medications, however, this usually doesn't affect the greater number of the people that take it. If you are aware of how it nor...

Aurobindo vs Torrent Zolipidem

How does Aurobindo Zolpidem differ from the Torrent Zolpidem? ## It is my personal opinion that Torrent works much better, I've been taking zolpidem for many many years so I consider myself an expert of sorts. When they give me the Aurobindo brand sometimes it doesn't work at all. ## They are just manufactured by different companies. Some people notice a difference, like John said, but most people don't. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Zolpidem as possibly including nausea, dizziness, severe sedation, hallucinations, lucid dreaming, and sleep actions. Ref: Medline Plus Can anyone else chime in with their experiences? ## YES! Made my insomnia so much worse.

Adderall 30mg Generic Which Is Better The Orange Oval Or The Pink Round

Is there a difference in the potency of the generic oval orange 30mg and the generic round pink 30 mg? ## Hi Wendy, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. However I do want to mention that certain "inactive" ingredients (which may or may not be present in each brand) are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug and same dosage). I hope this info helps! Have you had a chance to take either of them yet? ## I have taken both the oval orange and the round pink 30mg generic adderall's. I prefer the pink ones but i"m having a...

Adderall manufactured by Teva not working

I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is ridiculous, and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount for medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly ...

Esperal implant

I want to know that how much time disulfiram releases from ESPERAL implant and where it is implanted? I also want to know the name of the manufacturer of Esperal. ## One manufacturer that I have found listed for the implants is Laboratoires Thersa in France, however, I do not know if they still make it. I also cannot discover how often or how much is released by them, nor the location they are implanted. It does not appear to be used in this manner in the U.S., so there isn't a lot of details available. Does anyone else know anything? ## I am also looking for Disulfiram implants for my husband.

doctors adderall xr klonopin connecticut

I'm looking for a private doctor to get back on my meds, adderall xr, klonopin, and subutex. Since this is a weird combo most doctors don't want to prescribe mymeds any more.

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).

My dad keeps getting this “on fire” sensation on the soles of his feet and “sunburn feeling” in his legs. He’s only been on this dose of Eliquis for a week but it hasn’t gone away. Can caffeine also be making this worse?

Does methadone expire?

I have had liquid methadone bottles in my safe for over a year now and needed to know if they expire? ## Yes, all medications expire, but that does not mean they become dangerous, they just start to lose efficacy. Overall, the FDA advises that you dispose of them and see your doctor, if you need a new supply. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a bottle of methadone and it said to take it all on the 6th and I didn’t and it’s the 14th now it expires on 12/31/17 can I still take the lil bit that’s left ## I get 27 bottles to go at my clinic, all dispensed on the same date.
