A pharmacist in Mexico told me that codeine was no longer available there. True??

What is the difference in the 2? I have gotten 2 different prescriptions for hydroco/apap 5-500 and one says generic for vicodin and the other says generic for lortab 5. ## PS I got one in August and then one again Yesterday (December). It was different locations as well, would this be a factor in the difference? ## Initially, when these medications were still under full patent, and not available as generics, Lortab and Vicodin were both brand names for different dosages of Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen, but since this medication is now available as a generic, pharmacies can pretty much pick, and choose what name brand they refer to, when dispensing the generic. In other words, as long as the dosage is correct, it doesn't mean anything, and doesn't matter which name brand they ...

I found an oblong pill with the imprint 51 on it. It's kind of like the marroonish color of an advil..I have done a Google search and can't seem to find any info. If anyone knows what this pill could be please let me know. Thank you. ## I've had several people ask about this tablet and I still can't find anything definitive on it. Thus, I am wondering if it may be something that is available over the counter, such medications are usually not listed in the FDA or NIH databases. The closest I've been able to find, so far, has P 51 on it and is a red gel cap that contains Decussate, which is used as a laxative and stool softener. It's typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, bloating, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Does anyone else recognize this pill? ...

I filled a prescription for 10 mg generic oxycodone at a pharmacy in Mexico. It is a round white pill with no markings at all. It came in a sealed bottle that says "PERCO 10 mg". Below that, it says "Oxycodone 10 mg". In small print, it states that is manufactured for Generic Lab Inc. Corona CA by Purdue Pharmaceuticals. It even lists the US Patents for the drug. Is this a legit generic drug they were able to release without any markings in Mexico? I only took it once and they did nothing. Should I be afraid to take them? ## It is hard to know for sure. Mexico really does not regulate their medications like the U.S., Canada, and some other countries. Thus, there is no way to be sure what these tablets contain. The FDA warns that Oxycodone carries the risk of being habit ...

Hydros say IP 109 and Naproxen says IP 190 ## Hi amanda, Thanks for clearing up any confusion between the two pills! From what I could gather, another differentiating factor is that Naproxen's tablet also has "500" imprinted on the other side of IP 190; whereas with Hydrocodone/Apap, IP 109 is the only imprint. Naproxen 500mg (NDC 65162-0190): Ref: DailyMed Hydrocodone/Apap 5mg-325mg (NDC 53746-109): Ref: DailyMed Hope this helps! ## Is "ip190" and "tramadol hcl 50mg" the same thing? ## Doea everyone remember when IP 190 was either loritab or notico say 10-15 yra ago max. So idk was just wandering how all pills keep changing. I'm trying keep up please help.

I found a small round yellow pill with a capital E engraved on one side and nothing written on the other side. What is it? ## Hi Amy, Based on the description provided, a round yellow pill marked "E" is an 81 mg Aspirin Enteric Coated tablet. (NDC 63548-3602) Aspirin is often used as an analgesic to relieve minor aches and pains, as an antipyretic to reduce fever, and as an anti-inflammatory medication. Inactive Ingredients: - Silicon Dioxide - D&C Yellow No. 10 - FD&C Yellow No. 6 - Hypromellose - Methacrylic Acid - Methyl Methacrylate Copolymer (1:1) - Microcrystalline Cellulose - Corn Starch - Sodium Bicarbonate - Sodium Lauryl Sulfate - Stearic Acid - Talc - Titanium Dioxide - Triacetin - Triethyl Citrate ## Why votes down? That is exactly what this pill is. Asprin 8...

Can i take 2 hydrocodone pills if i am in severe pain but only prescribed to take 1 pill at a time? ## Hello, Hank! How are you? You should not do so, without your doctors approval, since it is an opiate and doubling up could be too much for some people that are not opiate tolerant. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have had to take another Hydrocodone 10mg one hour after taking my initial dose in order to control pain. ## Can I take one IP109 white pill and a M365 white hydrocodone pill at the same time for my pain? Is it safe? ## Yes, completely safe in my opinion, but it would ...

I have an orange round pill with no markings and want to know if this is generic Percocet 7.5-325mg? The prescription was filled at a Mexican pharmacy, made by Qualitest. ## Hi Sue, I personally wouldn't trust anything without a marking as there is virtually no way to verify its contents, outside of a lab analysis that usually costs more time and energy than it's worth, at least in my opinion. Qualitest is regarded as a legitimate pharmaceutical manufacturer and the FDA requires them to imprint all pharmaceuticals for distribution in the US. However, in Mexico, I don't know how much a company of this stature can get away with in regards to selling unregulated medication. Do you live in the US and get this filled while visiting Mexico or was the prescription filled at a Mexic...

I have a bottle of capsules that says "Adiolol Tramadol" on the bottle. And, the manufacturer is SBL Pharmaceuticals. Are they actually tramadol? ## Hello downtown, What I would need to know in order to verify your pills is the imprint/marking on the capsules themselves. Anyone could theoretically just put a bunch of pills inside of a container so without knowing the capsule description I can't do much for you. If you give me the info on those then I'll be more than happy to get you some additional information. ## I have Adiolol 100 mg capsules that are white with no markings. Are they counterfeit? If so, how do you tell? ## I got the same with no markings just all white ## I have a bottle of tramadol from Mexico. It’s adiolol brand. 100mg capsules. I’m tryin...

Anyone have these new Norco by EYWA marked "WES 303"? ## Blue capsule shaped pill with imprint WES 303 contains Acetaminophen 325 mg / Hydrocodone bitartrate 10 mg from Eywa Pharma Inc. (NDC 71930-021) Inactive Ingredients: - Croscarmellose Sodium - Silicon Dioxide - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - FD&C Yellow No. 6 Source: DailyMed ## Nope... I miss norco. I only get Alprazolam, Adderall, and Subutex now. ## yes. Thank u . I know what it is and about it . However, to make it clearer... does anyone take it and if so how does it work for u compared to the other brands? ## Never heard of or seen those before. ## I get adderall Xanax and subutex too and would take subutex over any pain killer any day cuz subs have a ceiling level where it’s a waste if y...

Used to take for cramps. What was it? ## Is this still on the market? I used to take it for cramps ## Hello, Mel and Sandy! How are you both? Edrisal contained the active ingredient Phenacetin, however, it was banned by the FDA in 1983 due to the increased risk it caused of kidney failure and certain types of cancer. It is actually metabolized into Acetaminophen(Tylenol) so that is what it was replaced with in over the counter medications. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wish they would research this some more and make any necessary changes. It really worked great for cramps. I don't know about you but it gave me a very euphoric feeling and feeling of well-being, but I never took more than absolutely needed. ## I took it also, back in the 60’s. It made me VERY ALE...

I was prescribed Dilaudid 2mg every 6 hours as needed for pain after being in the hospital for 5 days getting it through an IV every 2 hours as needed.... The pills I was prescribed were 4mg and I cut them in half.... Am I at serious risk if I take a whole pill for severe pain??? I am embarassed to ask my doctor in fear that he will think I am an addict trying to get a cheap high. This is not the case however. I actually am not a fan of taking pills at all, not even tylenol. The pain is almost unbearable. What do I do??? ## 4mgs is not a dangerous dose, though it is really strong and if you aren't used to taking medications, it will probably hit you very hard and you'll experience more of the side effects. Since it is a potent narcotic, they can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizz...

My grandmother, mother, and myself have used Save The Baby on our children's as a warm chest rub. I would put a T-shirt on them. I have also rubbed it on my husband's and my chest over our lung area front and back then wore a T-shirt to bed. No matter how sick with a cold or congestion we were, we would sleep through the night. What was really great about this chest rub is that it never got you cold. I have used Vick Vapor Rub and it makes your chest cold. Four generations of my family have used Save The Baby Vapor Rub and now that I have grandchildren and greatgrandchildren;one of which has croupey nights, I have searched many Pharmacies around and have been unable to find any. Would it be possible to order it from LEE'S Save the Baby vapor rub? ## Hello, Curly! How are you...

I've used just about every area on both my arm for patch placement except over a tattoo on my right arm. The tattoo is over 30 years old but it was done with a lot ink saturation. Can the patch be applied directly over this? I've never put one there because I thought it might inhibit the medicine from penetrating. Any help is greatly appreciated. This is my second post. ## Yes, you can place it over your tatts.

I’ve gone thru several variants of Percocet 10/325 over the past 20 years, (7 C-spine surgeries and 3 lumbar spine surgeries, and still suffer horrible pain on a daily basis). Endocet is one of the only meds that works for me, doesn’t make me sick to my stomach, nor any side effects. (I haven’t had to have any increases in strength or amount of daily intake, so I’m pleased with the Endocet)... But my cost has gone up to $159 for a one month supply (150 tabs), which is tough for me to handle financially. My ‘local Mom & Pop pharmacy’ suggested I try the Malinkrodt generic as it’s cost is much lower. I’m just concerned that it won’t work as well, or won’t agree with me. Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with the Mali...

Does anyone know where one could obtain glutethimide or it's brand name Doriden (CIBA Company)? Am in Canada where Doriden was discontinued in late 1980s and I was told Doriden discontinue was international. Perhaps there is now a generic form containing glutethimide available now as I would assume CIBA trademark rights would have by now expired. As the benzodiazapine replacement meds for Doriden are more addictive and dangerous (especially if mixing with alcohol & other drugs) it sure would be great to be able to go back to Doriden or glutethimide which were more effective and safer. A shame that the public was switched over to benzodiazipines (i.e. lorazapam, diazapam) when a better/safer product was available all in the name of profits and economics. Any help out there is mos...
