Oxyelite Pro Dietary Supplement

I bought this diet pill at GNC. It is a purple capsule pill. Just wanted to know anything you may know about the drug. Thanks for any help you can provide. ## Well, since it is a supplement and not a drug, that means that the type of information that would be available for drugs is not available for it. This also means that it is not actually proven to do anything. It contains: Bauhinia Purpurea L, Bacoppa Moniera, 1,3 Diethylamylamine, Cirsium Olygophllum, Rauwolscine, and Caffeine. Has anyone else used this product? ...

Drugs and Indications

My father was prescribed Citicholine(Somazina). I found that 1000mg of Citicholine was too harsh from him. He is suffering from Thrombosis(Clotting) and but his condition is stable now. Also, Can somebody advise whats tyical time frame for Citicholine. They are really costly here. ## Is citicholine 500 mg per day sufficient for a stable condition. ## this site is not medical professionals, so we cannot guess what dosage is appropriate for his condition. Only his doctor can do that, have you spoken to them about it? In the U.S. Citicoline is not even classifed as a drug, it is a dietary supplement that is used in some energy drinks. It has been shown to increase mental focus and possibly improve memory. ## neurologist adviced my mother to take citicolin sodium 500 mg twice a day due to c... ...

stacker 3 and clindamycin

Just wondering if you can take stacker 3 while taking clindamycin ## Hi Cat, Unfortunately when it comes to OTC dietary supplements or fat burners like Stacker 3, determining their safety with pharmaceutical drugs is often a challenge, because non-pharmaceutical preparations is a category that tends to go unaccounted for with regards to general information on potential interactions. For that reason I'd strongly encourage you to get in touch with your doctor first and foremost before taking anything that he/she hasn't prescribed or recommended. In many cases I've come across, these types of combinations usually turn out to be fine and it's just a matter of getting your Dr's. approval to ensure safety. I hope this helps! ...

Amatem Forte Interactions with Amoxicillin and Vitamins

Can I take B-Complex dietary supplement, Calcium, Folic acid, Amoxicillin 500mg, and Amatem Forte (an antimalarial medicine) together at the same time? And how many can I take a day if possible? ## Hi Duchess. Well, for the B-Complex / Calcium / Folic Acid ... those are vitamins and not drugs so I did not see any alarming interactions listed anywhere with the Amatem Forte. As for the Amoxicillin, which is an antibiotic, I did see that OTHER kinds of antibiotics may interact with Amatem Forte, but did not see Amoxicillin on that list. This was according to everydayhealth's article about Artemether-Lumefantrine. Of course, if you have not already done so, I would highly recommend telling your doctor everything else which you have been taking (vitamins and drugs) so that they can deter... ...

drug for dizziness

when i get up i feel dizzy, what drug can help ## I think that taking drugs will only create more problems for you. There are a number of factors here that may be valid reasoning for waking up with dizzy feeling. Just to name a few possible factors: Dehydration (if your pee is not clear on a regular basis) Abnormal sleeping patterns (or not enough sleep) Stress Dietary habits (plenty of fruits and veggies) Anemia B12 Deficiency Chronic fatigue There are many more possibilities, so I would suggest that you check in with a doctor if all of the above is not an issue. Generally the dietary habits are a contributing factor to other problems, like not sleeping well..etc. ...

I Taking Chantix Can Take Xenadrine

I'm taking chantix for 3 weeks now can I take xenadrine Ultra ## Have you checked with your doctor? The Xenadrine products are over the counter dietary supplements that are claimed to aid in weight loss, however, as such, they aren't tested for possible interactions with actual prescription drugs. Thus, I can really only advise that you check with your doctor or pharmacist, before taking it. ...

Pill Expiration

Can I still take flaxseed tablets which expired eight months ago.I did keep it in the fridge.Thanks ## These over the counter supplements aren't tested for safety like prescription drugs are, so there's really no way of knowing if it's safe or not. Thus, I think the best thing to do would be to discard them and purchase a new supply. Learn more dietary supplement details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

new Nervijen plus

benift & side effict ## Nervijen Plus is a nutritional supplement that contains Methylcobalamin (B12), Alpha Lipoic Acid, Benfotiamine, Pyridoxine, Nicotinamide and Folic Acid. Learn more dietary supplement details here. These nutrients are all vital to your overall health, but as a supplement, it has not been tested for side effects, as is done with actual prescription drugs, however, some people have reported some nausea after taking it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Nervigen Plus has pregabalin that can have withdrawal symptoms, if the capsule is stopped. However, Nervigen has only suplements. ## I am sorry about the earlier post. I have bought the Nervigen plus capsule in Bangalore and it does not contain pregabalin as mentioned by some one in the internet. ...

Red And White Capsule No Imprint

I've heard red and white capsules no imprint are 30 mg roxicodones? ## Honestly, it would largely depend on the country of origin of the pill. Reason being is that U.S. law requires all prescription drugs to have some sort of marking or imprint on the tablet to identify the substance and dosage. Without that, it could literally be anything from a dietary supplement, OTC med, illicit drug, or even something foreign. Whereabouts did you find it? ## I bought what was supposed to be a dietary supplement called Garcia Cambogia, but when I got it in the mail, it had no seal, and the bottle was so full when I opened it, the pills were popping out. I looked up the description of what they were supposed to be & it's nothing like these. I opened 1 of the capsules & it has an off w... ...

black and red capsule pill with yellow band

black and red capsule pill with yellow band, with no other markings. What is it? ## Hi Pheonix, Based on your description, this could be anything from an OTC dietary supplement to something illicit. Unfortunately because there are no markings, the best thing I can suggest is to either have the capsules analyzed by a lab and/or utilize a drug panel kit to see if it contains any illicit drugs. Were you given this by someone at a party or did you find it in a medicine cabinet, etc? Maybe its origin can help rule out a few unlikely suspects or at least narrow down our search efforts in some way. Does anyone else here recognize this? ...

pill round grern looks like liquid in it vety small

I found a very small green round pill look like liquid in it. Could it possibly be a dilaudid? ## Hi Nett, Judging from your description, I get the sense that it may be an OTC pill or some sort of dietary supplement; possibly even an illicit or foreign drug. However, there's really no way it could be a legitimate Dilaudid pill, since all U.S. prescription drugs are required by law to have an imprint for verification of substance and dosage. Is there any marking or imprint on the pill that you may have overlooked? ...

Hi, please help. I found this in my husbands pants.. It was a white thick oblong pill with nothing on either side. What is this!!!! ## most likely an over the counter medication or vitamin.

what can conzace cap H3O do to my health

I'm 40 y/o now. My Gynecologist prescribed me with conzace cap H3O. I had my surgery for endemetriosis and mioma last June 3, 2008. What are the good and bad side effects of Conzace cap H3O? ## I was unable to find any information regarding Conzace, since it is not manufactured in the US. They are made in the Philippines, and are vitamins used a dietary supplements, and not drugs. Since these are vitamins, it is hard to determine the side effects. Everyone reacts differently to vitamins, I personally had a bad experience with to much B12. Your medication contains vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Zinc Sulfate. Please post back if you have any more information to add so I can further assist you. ## Can this vitamin make menstruation irregular? ...

 Vascepa Icosapent Ethyl

Ethyl eicosapentaenoic acid (E-EPA, icosapent ethyl) is a derivative of the omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) that is used in combination with changes in diet to lower triglyceride levels in adults with severe (≥ 500mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia. This was the second class of fish oil-based drug to be approved for use as a drug and was approved by the FDA in 2012. These fish oil drugs are similar to fish oil dietary supplements but the ingredients are better controlled and h...

mexico antibiotic for bladder infections

Got a red and white capsule from Mexico that was to cure bladder infections. What are they?? ## Hi Judy, Did you happen to receive any product packaging along with your prescription that suggests it's an antibiotic or are you just assuming it is? Reason I ask is because without any markings or imprints it could literally be anyone's best guess from pharmaceuticals to dietary supplements, illicit drugs and so forth... The description is so broad that one could simply buy a red and white capsule, fill it with virtually any substance and call it whatever they want... If I were you I'd consider the idea of having its contents analyzed by a lab, just to be on the safe side. Did a doctor prescribe this for you to pick up at a licensed pharmacy or do they handle things differently ... ...

efrogen tablet

im currentley takein 2 in the morning and 2 at 3pm is this ok and am i doin my body any damage by takeing these tablets ? ## Efrogen (Ephedrine) is currently banned in the US (for use in dietary supplements) as of 2006, because the FDA did not approve of certain dosing that they believed to be harmful. Personally I think Ephedrine would do more harm than good in terms of weight loss; simply because I am all for natural alternatives to getting the results you are looking for. I feel that any supplement, (especially one that has been banned for one reason or another) would hinder the body's normal way of dealing with weight loss, and sully rely on drugs to get the job done. Ephedrine is available outside the US, and in non-dietary supplements. So if you are willing to take a risk just... ...

can i take 1 2 of 25mg losartan and lipozen

(Diet) would it be safe to take losartan and liposzen i am taking 1/2 of 24 mg of losartan. ## Hi wanda, From what I could gather, there aren't any drug interactions to be found between Losartan and Lipozene (I'm assuming you meant to say?). However this is because Lipozene (Amorphophallus konjac) is an OTC dietary supplement; a category that isn't generally accounted for when it comes to reputable information on potential interactions with pharmaceutical drugs. For that reason I'd encourage you to contact your doctor first and foremost before taking anything that he/she hasn't prescribed or recommended. In many cases these types of situations turn out to be fine and it's just a matter of getting your Dr's. approval to ensure safety. I hope this helps! ...

half pink half clear capsule with brown inside

I found a capslul and it is half pink half clear filled with something brown on the inside, almost Sandy looking. There is no markings at all and I have not been able to find out what it is. ## Hi Haley, This sure fits the description of a lot of dietary supplements I've taken in the past (i.e. things like vitamins, herbs, or pre-workout pills), but without an imprint of any kind there's really no honest way to know for certain what it may be unless you were to have it analyzed by a lab. One thing we can rule out as a possibility are standard US prescription drugs, since they are required by law to have at least some sort of marking for identification, even if it's just a score line or symbol. This leaves several other categories to consider, such as something illicit, forei... ...
