I found these pills of my Husbands. They are white triangular with the letters GP on one side then it is scored (a line) on the other. ## Okay, this one took A LOT of hunting to find. It is made by Geneza Pharmaceuticals. Almost all of their pills are triangular and marked with a GP, the only way to tell the difference is by the color. The white tablets are 50mgs Clomiphene. This is normally prescribed for women to help with infertility issues, however, men have been known to use it to block the effects of Estrogen in their bodies and increase the levels of Testosterone they produce. You can see information on it here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## my son was found with these pills (triangular, white, marked with GP) when he was stoppd by police. They took the pills and...

Why can't people over the age of 65 donate blood plasma? ## Hi Jeri, According to the US National Institute of Health, the reason why the age cut off was around 65, was due to what was "thought" to be an increased risk of cardiovascular disease in these individuals. However more recent studies have determined that its prevalence was deemed infrequent enough to overrule the age cut off point in certain countries where an average healthy life expectancy was considered to be higher than others. Despite this assessment, many donation centers else where still require first time donors to be under 65, unless deemed acceptable by an on-site physician who can recommend otherwise based on their own discretion. You can read more specific details about this in the link below: ncbi.nlm....

Def my fav of the sticks, except the yellow ones. I've been taking this medication for over 14 years and yet to EVER have a Name BRAND STICK, so I cant compare any generic to it, but I've had name brand .25 .5 and 1mg. To be honest I like the sandoz generics better than the name brand ones. Dava 2mgs are a good generic as well. So I think a name brand stick wouldn't be that effective either compared to a dava or sandoz. Right? ## I always get the 2 mg bars with Xanax right on the back. Or the Circle ones from Walmart. I also prefer the Diazapam with the V on one side. Benzos aren't worth the trouble to me. I just take my Roxicodone and Opana. ## I have green s 90 3 Xanax bars and they look real and are soft and dissolve in your mouth. The bitter Xanax taste isn't rea...

Hi, Has anyone seen/taken or have any information on Bensedin (Galenika) Diazepam 10mg? The box/strip looks ok but the actual tablet is white circular/domed with no markings at all.... I presume that they are Eastern European. Any information at all would be most appreciated. Peace ## Yes, received my prescription today. Took 1/4 tab, now, two hours later, my spasms from a ski shoulder injury, are not spasming anymore. I plan to take another 1/4 tad 2.5mg before bed. Seems like a good brand. ## Galenika bensedin is very very high quality pharmaceutical grade diazepam! it is top notch, one of the best brands available. Bensedin 10mg x 15 Tabs in a blister pack, 30 x 10mg diazepam a box, and around. I also am prescribed Galenika ksalol/alprazolam 1mg x 15 tabs a blister pack 30 x 1mg tabs...

I got these tablets from a friend which are apparently from thailand, they are a round blue tablet with 10 on one side and blank on other with a line going down to snap them, any idea what these are. Valium? ## these are diazapam tablets i also have tried them and they are very good ## Hi joseph cooper, Just to confirm, the closest match I could find is also Diazapam (10mg). The only difference is that instead of one side being blank there is the imprint DAN 5620. Maybe the side that is now blank was just smudged off at some point. For those that want more information on this drug, follow the link below: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682047.html I hope this helps! ## I found a small blue pill with 10 on one side and smooth on the other any ideas. ## Manodiazo are the best and o...

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. My arms are sleeves and I am on 100 every 48 hours for chronic pancreatitis. ## has anyone tryed the new sandoz 75mcg transderm patch. just got them. And have been haveing bad stomach problems?? ## Yes you can put a patch over a tattoo I had one on my lower abbs and had no problem,but should alternate where you put it every time,arm upper backside,but not on the waist. ##...

After I take 100 mg Allopurinol for three days in a row, my diarrhea becomes intolerable. I have a pre-existing condition called collagenous colitis. It is normally manageable without medication. However, not when I take Allopurinol. Does anyone have any suggestions from the right experience?

I need to know of any side effects that may occur while taking this medication. ## Are there any risks to taking this medication understanding that the patient is 35 weeks pregnant? ## I took it for sinusitis/ear infection and got a terrible case of hives. ## You can't take Bactrim if you are allergic to sulfa (ie. that case of hives) ## Rash can occur ## My 9yr old daughter was prescribed Bactrim for treatment of a bladder infection. 2 pills twice a day for 7 days on 8th day she broke out in severe hives and a red pin point rash all over her body head to toes she also ran a fever. She has had the rash so far for 4days.

Hi, I've just had my 5th booster shot for COVID-19. I was told that I may get very few side effects. It's been 4 days since I had my booster and I've noticed that both of my feet were puffy the next day. My right foot looks worse and also has pitting when I press it. Also my asthma cough was a lot worse. It's the weekend here, so there are no doctors available. Any information would be appreciated. Has anyone else had ill effects after their booster shot? Thanks. ## Do you know which company manufactured the booster you received? This additional information will help me research it for you to check its side effects. The FDA lists them all as possibly causing administration site redness, headache, fatigue, and chills. Ref: COVID-19 Vaccine General Information Are you on a...

Has anyone taken Paxlovid for Covid? I was prescribed this medication and could only take 2 of the 5 day prescription due to the awful side effects. Number one was the medication made me feel worse than I felt before taking it. Number two.... It literally felt and tasted like someone was continuously spraying hairspray down my throat for hours until the dose wore off. For me, the side effects were much too harsh and bothersome and unfortunately, couldn't complete the 5 day prescription. Has anyone else had any experience taking this medication? ## I was prescribed Paxlovid for Covid in August. Within 3 hours, I felt like a new woman! Seriously, the cough lessened up, the fatigue lessened up and I could breathe again. The milder symptoms did persist for about a month or so though. Th...

Has anyone experienced severe anxiety, constant crawling feeling in body after epclusa treatment. Its like my brain and body aren't working right anymore? I had terrible side effects. Finished in January, now it's June and feels like I'm still taking the poison. ## Hello, Barbara! How are you? Has there been any change? Those are not normal side effects of this medication according to recent FDA reports. They typical include nausea, dizziness, insomnia, depression, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications? Do you take any supplements? Do you drink a lot of sugary, or caffeinated beverages? ## Yes I started with hand/arm pain about a month after starting treatment. Now I am three months post treatment and the pain has now been nerve pain in my hands, lower legs, hands, ...

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...

Has anyone tried these generic Modafinil and Armodafinil meds who can compare them to U.S. prescription brand name or generics? I know 2 of them are made by Sun pharma. I've had Sun pharma generic Adderall which was utter crap and another generic of theirs that seemed weak so no faith in them. The other is produced by HAB pharma which is another Indian company. Nothing against India in general, just their pharmaceutical industry culture is really bad and make cheap drugs often resulting in weak versions. ## Modafinil If I remember correctly when I took this it was for MS fatigue It did nothing for the extreme fatigue it was suppose to help . for me it was just another junk med thrown at me I tried taking it for a month with so much hope huge let down. ## Been a while. Have tried the...

I have been on Fiorinal w Codeine and Fioricet as well as Valium for Sleep. I have 3 herniated disks in my back, Scloroisis, Nerve Damage in my left leg and Chronic Migraines. No Doctors in Rhode Island will any longer prescribe medication, if they do it is only one medication, I used to get all 3 of my medications for these problems from one Doctor who was my primary until he informed me that he could no longer write those. If anyone know's anyone in Rhode Island Please Help! ## Hello Thank you for your reply. I was wondering if this is just in Rhode Island, becuase I am close to the border of Massachusett's.

I have been taking Chantix for almost 6 weeks and not smoking for almost 5 weeks. My dreams are not nightmares, but are becoming more disarming and I don't want them anymore. Also, this past week, I started getting very agitated and angry, lashing out at my husband and even a stranger or two. I am aware of some of the horrific stories of long-term depression, etc. This is my second time with Chantix. The first time I did it the full 12 weeks, didn't smoke and got very depressed upon quitting Chantix and started smoking again. Depression went away. My doctor suggested only one month if I was not craving cigarettes, which I am not, and then wean mysel off the medication. I began three days ago going from 2 per day to 1 in the morning and a half at night. I am to the point now that...

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has switched from Effexor to Brintellix? I was currently taking Wellbutrin 300mg daily and Effexor 37.5 mg daily. I was at a stand still for a while and just found I still was struggling. So on Monday I did a direct switch from Effexor to Brintellix 10mg. I took a dose of Effexor on Sunday then started Brintellix Monday. Since then I have had flu like symptoms, high anxiety, muscle aches, and very dizzy to the point I shouldn't drive!! It is now day 5...will these symptoms subside or should I see the Dr.? Need your help.. anyone in the same situation? Thanks ## Contact your doctor! I went through something similar and I was in withdrawal from effexor. He/she should be able to advise you. I do know I was so dizzy that I could barely walk or stand stra...

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in 2008, 9 years ago. I was taking alendronic acid for 3 years and have been on a drug holiday for nearly 4 years since. I'm due to have denosumab treatment shortly but am anxious of the side effects after reading patients comments. My bones have reverted back to the condition they were in 9 years ago, I suffer from a very weak bladder due to surgery and have irritable bowel symptoms. Should I seek more medical help as bladder and bowel constipation are two of the side effects this treatment may cause from what I understand and are there other treatments available which could help me please? Also, what is the maximum number of years you can be on this treatment and how long should I expect to live taking this new drug? I go to the gym regularly, eat...

I have been on Victoza for over 6 months. I am 8 pounds away from my first goal weight. Yes, I had a lot of weight to lose, but now only have a total of 58 pounds left to go! I had lost much of my weight before starting on Victoza but could not lose any more weight. I would maintain the weight that I had lost and could lose no further until taking Victoza. I posed questions to my Endocrinologist today. What is the end goal for my taking of Victoza? Can I eventually stop taking Metformin, Glybyride and Victoza at all one day? Will I be able to maintain my weight loss without Victoza one day? Here are the answers he gave me to me (only). Each person's situation may be different. He said that he is switching me to a new form of Metformin which is time-released and taken by pill only 1 ...

I have GERD, which is reflux disease and the Victoza seems to make it worse. I also have a sliding hiatal hernia. Does anyone else have this issue? ## It is really hard to say what is causing it, it could be your medical issues, or the medication. The FDA warns that other side effects from Victoza may possibly include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and decreased appetite. Is this the only medication you take? What have you tried to treat the GERD? ## I had no GERD but did have a hiatal hernia and I had surgery for that at a later time.
