 Slow FE Iron Salts
Ferric refers to iron-containing materials or compounds. In chemistry the term is reserved for iron with an oxidation number of +3, also denoted iron(III) or Fe3+. On the other hand, ferrous refers to iron with oxidation number of +2, denoted iron(II) or Fe2+. Iron(III) is usually the most stable form of iron in air, as illustrated by the pervasiveness of rust, an insoluble iron(III)-containing material. The word ferric is derived from the Latin word ferrum for iron. Contents 1 Ferric ...

is this slow-k legit?

I picked up a prescription for slow-k and there is no imprint on the pills, generally it has slow-k printed on it. What are the chances this is a counterfeit? If it is likely to be, what should I do? ## I haven't received any reply to this, someone please? ## If you feel concerned, I would take that pill to your nearest pharmacy and ask you pharmacist. Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ...

Weight loss soooo slow...

It took me almost a month and a half to lose 10#''s. Now it seems like I do cereal for breakfast, salad for lunch and whatever we have for dinner. If we eat out I gain 2#'s overnight. Then have to start over again. Sometimes I forget to take them. I am getting discouraged. I am eating less than I used to but not losing much weight. Can't say I am not hungry. Please help me.... ## Hello, Eileen! How are you doing? It would likely help to take some control of what you're eating for dinner and to stop eating out. Do you also get plenty of exercise? That's vital for weight loss, you can't expect the medication to do all the work. You should also try to find a way to remind yourself to take them. A phone app may help, if you have a smart phone. Does anyone else ha... ...

Took Excedrin PM. Every night for a month but took 4 instead of typical 2. Woke up in hospital. Dr. Said seizure but I say reaction to too much Excedrin P.M. Dr. put me on dilantin and I've never had one before or after. Was taking 4 a day but have cut it down too two and now ready to take only 1 before completely stop all together. No funny feelings or abnormal reactions. ## It could be due to either, or, it's hard to say from just the information in this post. Was a scan done by a neurologist? Usually a scan of the brain is used to determine epilepsy. I understand the doctor's concern, some medications can lower you seizure threshold, which could signify that you have a condition putting you at risk of seizures, anyway. But the opposite could also be true, it might have on... ...

How Slowly Should You Stop Taking Bisocor
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Bisocor 10mg for a number of years and have discovered by chance the bad affect on my breathing it caused. I need to stop taking it but understand it must be done slowly. How slow should that be? ## Hi Leetjie, Sorry to hear about the challenges you've been facing with this medication. From what I understand, usually for drugs like this, the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them "under a doctor's supervision"; if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. However, due to the severe nature of withdrawals, in my honest opinion, it would be wise to discuss a taperi... ...

Please let me know if anyone is taking this drug and what effects if any its having on you or your loved one. ## Tommy, I don't know your situation and why it was prescribed. Here is what I do know. In September, 2005, my dad (88 years old) was diagnosed with Chronic Mylegenous Leukemia. The wonder drug that we were trying to get at the time was Gleevec which we were told had made significant medical breaththroughs in this type of cancer. However, my dad had no RX plan and it cost $1,432 (discounted) and we were waiting for a response from the distributor if we could get help in getting it. While we were waiting, my dad was prescribed Hydroxyuerea and he was taking 1000 mg twice per day for about 2-1/2 weeks when he, himself, refused all medication after being diagnosed with stomach... ...

I am disabled veteran with chronic pain, and after reading some of these, and knowing how terrible life was before I was prescribed both types, I just cannot believe, or understand "why" it is not treated with respect, and the beneficial results, it produces. I have been taking the same dosage except for a increase in the # of SR tablets per day, and some days, I still have pain, but not to the extent, I experienced for over 20 years trying to work and be a productive citizen. People, take as prescribed, or you do not need it. My life, is not pain free, but I am not in agony, anymore. I, have a profound respect for the medication, that changed my life. ## Hi PainMan, I think that these types of pain meds tend to carry a tarnished reputation simply because of the high amount of a... ...

Welcome to the Internet, where keyboard warriors abound to slay you with caps lock, and almost everyone believes everything they read on Facebook, without fact checking it. :D That said… Yes, it will take some time, if you stopped the Hydrocodone cold turkey to switch to Morphine, there are two issues that will cause your body to have to adjust. One is, of course, the change from one medication to another, which can cause some minor withdrawal effects, as reported by the NIH, and they can include rebound pain. The o... ...
