What does the "LEG" mean (20 MG TAB LEG)

What does the "LEG" mean on the prescription bottle immediately following the dosage (20 MG TAB LEG)? This was for acid reflux medication, nothing to do with legs. ## I found the answer. LEG means Lower Esophageal-Gastrointestinal (symptoms, treatment). The medication was for severe heartburn and acid reflux. ## Thanks for the helpful feedback Bruce! Just out of curiosity, which medication are you taking exactly? At first glance I was under the unique impression that LEG might've been an abbreviation for the active ingredient (since I don't normally see the indications mentioned on a prescription bottle - typically just the drug name in my experience), but what you have found certainly makes sense - especially if the medication was prescribed for a related condition. I h... ...

Pain Medication Help

Injured under workers comp in Tallahassee Florida I was taking percocet and now my adjustor stopped me from seeing the doctor who was writing my pain meds does anyone know how I can get my medication and who can you report this adjustor to ## Workers comp can be quite the hassle, as I've seen from personal experience. My mom was actually going through a similar situation with her adjuster and eventually had to get an attorney to work with her on the legality of situations like this. Although I'm not completely familiar with the process involved in that, it's probably where'd I'd recommend starting if you're intent is to take action against your adjuster - in hopes of finding a new one. In the meantime, it sounds like you may also have to be open to trying other f... ...

pota chloride what does 20,meq er tab blu mean?

Can the side effects include stiffness & cramps in both hands? ## Hello, Paul! How are you? That means that they contain 20 milliequivalents per tablet, that's the dosage and the ER denotes them as being time released. The main side effect of this supplement, as listed by the FDA, is stomach pain and nausea, so it's best to take it with food. As to the stiffness and cramping, that is most likely caused by your potassium being low, but you should have it checked out, just in case. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am taking lots chloride 10meg er cap for potassium but I still get leg and arm cramps. So I stopped taking them for a week no cramps. So what gives. ...

what does a real xanax bar look like

I have the 2mg white bars xanax on one side 2 on the other side. My problem is the pill is like smaller way smaller any ideas. It says everything a reg one says, well the white xanax ones. I'm just curious as they are really small. Still the same length but tiny. ## Jmazz If this rx was obtained legally by prescription and filled in a US pharmacy I'd say chances are it's a legit Xanax. If obtained by other means the size differential is a sure indicator that's it's a fake ## I'd also like to add that the size of any given pill actually depends on what inactive ingredients the manufacturer has chosen to use in it. The FDA has an approved list of ingredients that they are allowed to choose from, some bulkier than others, so it is always possible that tablets from o... ...

what does a hydrocodone 10 pill look like

There was only DICODID made by knoll in Germany but it was withdrawn last year. Only Hydrocodone now available is ZOHYDRO SR in the USA. It is also made in combination with high amounts of acetaminophen, usually 325, 500 or 650mg, one goes as high as 750mg! But there is legislation coming into force limiting any dosage unit of acetaminophen (paracetamol) in the USA (where 100% of the entire world's Hydrocodone is now used since the deletion of DICODID) to 300mg. Abbott have already issued their new 10/300mg pill. But I am afraid that Hydrocodone as a single drug now is only available as an SR med under that ZOHYDRO brand. If required then would have to be crushed finely to defeat the ridiculous slow release mechanism which means you can no longer get the benefit of the drug to the e... ...

Marijuana legalization as a means of dealing with opiate ODs

Statistics point out that opioid overdose related deaths are significantly lower in states that have medical marijuana programs in place. As a short or long term chronic pain patient, what are your views on this topic? Do you think marijuana (CBD's included) has effectively secured its spot as a means of adjunctive pain management where the excessive use of opiates outweighs potential benefits? ## So says my Doctor. Others say it helps to get off opiates. ## David, Absolutely! Before I started on a daily Rx for pain I used to consume marijuana a lot. I never had any problems sleeping or with depression, worked 75 hours every other week (Sat. 7am - Sun 7pm was 1 job, and I could sleep) and went to College Full Time. Then I had to take Rx's here and there, and then came the drug p... ...
