Pain-o-Soma

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...

Lee's save the baby. Where can I find it?

The is in a clear bottle with a red screw on cap. The liquid is yellow in color It has oil in it that separates and goes to the top when bottle sits. To use run the bottle under warm water and shake to mix. Applythe warm liquid tothe child's chest and under nose to relieve symptoms of croupe. Instead of placing a drop under the nose you can also place it on a pillowcase or sheet. ## It was made by the Lee's company and yes, it is patent protected. The reason it is no longer available is that it contained Camphor, yes, even in the liquid that was taken internally and the FDA has recognized this as being unsafe. Camphor is now only approved to be used topically. As to the other ingredients, I am sorry, I have been unable to discover that. Does anyone else know anything about this?...

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 ...

i know there is a purple oval shaped xannax 1mg that says up John 90 on one side and the other side has a score. i just bought some very similar tablets, almost exactly the same just a different shade of purple and instead of saying up John 90 it says up j 90. is this still a 1mg alprazolam? ## Of course there is! The purple tablet, oval, biconvex, single score on reverse side and embossed 'UPJOHN 90' on the obverse is the brand-name Pfizer (originally Upjohn Ltd before Pfizer bought that company - cf HALCION 250mcg tablets, which are BLUE ovals of the same size but flat, thinner score on reverse, and imprint 'UPJOHN 17') XANAX - branded as TAFIL in Germany, Mexico and a few other countries, and as XANOR in Scandinavia, South Africa and a few others.

New xanax brenkenridge pharma best xanax vs greenstone xanax

Hey everyone, I just saw that there is a brand new line of generic xanax alprazolam in .25mg, .5mg, 1mg, and 2mg tablets that are newly approved generics for alprazolam xanax. the 2mg are legit made pharma rectangular bars imprinted b707 and shape is very similar to brand name (greenstone) front side says B 7 0 7 and the back is blank and has a curve up like brand name and greenstone.

I believe these to be the very first legit pharma made alprazolam xanax bars ever made in blue. I am curious if an...

Casodex to reduce PSA levels after prostatectomy

My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer and later had prostatectomy followed by rounds of chemotherapy. He was later prescribed abiraterone which he has been taking for 5 months up until August. His PSA doesn't seem to be going down since 5 months he's been on it. The PSA was checked on Wednesday September 29th and the result is at 38. Do you think Casodex alone or with Lupron will work better than Abiraterone at getting his PSA down? Thanks ## It’s my understanding that Casodex and lupron should be taken together to get the best results. You can access many instructive and very optimistic videos from the Prostate Cancer Research Institute on YouTube regarding treatment options for stage 4 prostate cancer. Good luck! ## Thanks for your input. ## I was told by...

meloxicam 15mg and baclofen 10mg

Can I take meloxicam 15mg and baclofen 10mg together. I was prescribe a half of meloxicam 15mg twice a day and 1 tablet of baclofen 10 mg twice a day. ## Hello, Dee! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these medications, so that should be fine, as long as your doctor has prescribed them both. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Meloxicam as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Baclofen may cause side effects such as nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## can baclofen and meloxicam be taken at the same time

In simple terms they are are actavis 10mg tablets. Markings C DC with a split line through the middle. Light blue, blank on one side in sealed silver strips, with 14 to each. They don't seem to be good. ## Yes.thats the same marking that are on activis diazepam. But be carefull if u got them from any other place besides a licensed pharmacy cause there a lot of counterfeit tablets going about. Put 1 under your tongue. If it starts melting and tastes kinda sweet then it should be diazepam. ## You're getting one of the best brands of Diazepam out there.

Side effect of Dueton

I am 5 weeks pregnant and have taken 2 capsules of dueton one day ago with still no sign of periods. What should I do now? Should I take 2 more capsules? ## I have also the same problem. Please give me a solution. ## Hello Jove, I am having a hard time understanding what you are asking here. Dueton itself contains a combination of hormones, which can be used as a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. Dueton can be taken regularly or by taking them in a high doses within the first 5 days of unprotected intercourse. The problem here is that Dueton is a contraceptive and not an capable of ending a pregnancy that already exists. If I am to understand your message you are already 5 weeks pregnant. There are medications such as Misoprostol that you can take but in most countries it requires a d...

White round pill with black type number 4

Pill is worn, can only make out the last number which is 4. there appears to be a couple characters/numbers before the 4. Can not make out anything on reverse side. no imprints or scores. only the black type number/lettering. ## It's rather hard, without knowing the complete imprint, however, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## It's white round with a black 4 on it ## Hmmm, seems likely to be a Glipizide tablet manufactured by Zydus (NDC 68382-0337). Does it look like the following image?

Taking Cipla Actin with Ulcers

Good day. I would like to ask if it's safe to use cipla actin while I have stomach ulcers? Thank you ## This medication contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, it is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat, or prevent allergy symptoms. According to the FDA, it may cause stomach irritation, and nausea, as side effects, along with dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes, so it would best to check with your doctor, before taking it, to be sure it is safe for you. Are you on any other medications? Ref: Medline Plus Cyproheptadine ## I have been using mayogel suspension due to the stomach pain I've been experiencing, which only tones down the pain. I would then opt to use cipla actin and the pain would simply fade away for days

Diazepam 10mg pink and scored?

Since when are 10 mg Diazepam pink and scored with no number on them instead of blue with a 10 and scored as in America? ## Well, first of all, even in the U.S. the colors don't mean anything, the manufacturers can make them whatever color they choose, so even the same dosage from different companies may not be all the same color. As to the imprint, this can happen if you order them from a foreign pharmacy or obtain them there. Unlike the U.S., they don't require all of their medications to have unique imprints for identification purposes. That said, there is also no way to actually be certain they sent you the correct thing. Diazepam is a Benzodiazepine, commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and iritability...

myprodol and Panado

Can I take Myprodol if I took 3 Panado tablets about 30 minutes ago? I have got the worst headache ever and the Panado hasn't helped at all. It feels like a rubber band is squeezing my head. Pain is centred from the base of my neck up and over to between my eyes. ## Both of these medications contain Acetaminophen/Paracetamol, which can be toxic, if taken in high dosages. According to current FDA reports, you shouldn't exceed over 1,000mgs every 8 hours, because such toxicity has the potential to cause severe liver damage, liver failure, and/or death. Ref: Medline Plus Acetaminophen Levels Symptoms of overdose may include nausea, vomiting, lowered heart rate, lowered blood pressure, stomach pain, trouble breathing, dizziness, and unconsciousness.

E 281 white oval pill

White oval pill with E and then 281, it's supposed to be Metoprolol but they are smaller than the other ones I had before. ## The size of a tablet is only dependent on what filler/inactive ingredients the manufacturer has decided to us in the production formula, and the medication dosage, so pill sizes can differ from one manufacturer to another.

Adderall on backorder

I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal...
