Dexchloropheniramine maleate tablets have 2mg; chlorpheniramine maleate tablets had 4mg. Dex isomer's more potent? Or ploy to sell more tablets?

Tab difference: hello ~ dex~etc is a totally different substance to chlorphen~etc base. Each compound in organic chem has completely different properties, by adding free radicals (-H, -OH, -S03,-S04,-NH3,NH4) This is not a scam but dose equivalents. Do not mess with dose advised on label ! Take AS DIRECTED ! ALWAYS ! ...Read more

I'm taking verapamil and am constipated. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) & costco optifiber (wheat dextrin) don't seem to work. What fiber supplement would you recommend?

I'm taking verapamil and am constipated. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) & costco optifiber (wheat dextrin) don't seem to work. What fiber supplement would you recommend?

Change meds: I believe that constipation is a common side effect of medications. When simple methods to manage these complications fail, altermative treatments should be sought. I would not recommend stronger laxatives as they may alter your colonic function, unless, of course, you have no alternative. ...Read more

Is it safe to take sertraline 50 mg tablets, oxycodone/acetaminophen 10/325 mg tablets, and dexamethasone 4 mg tablets together?

Is it safe to take sertraline 50 mg tablets, oxycodone/acetaminophen 10/325 mg tablets, and dexamethasone 4 mg tablets together?

Risk: Every medication has risk. Nobody can guarantee that you won't have side effect or be injured by any medication you take. If your doctor prescribes these medications for you after knowing your condition, then that means he/she feels the possible benefit outweighs the risk. You have to decide whether you agree with your doctor or not. ...Read more

Which one tablets are best for hair loss treatement? 1: surbex-z tablets 2: theragran ultra tablets

Which one tablets are best for hair loss treatement?
1: surbex-z tablets
2: theragran ultra tablets

Neither: See a dermatologist. First determine cause of hair loss. For a man you may get prescription finasteride. 5 mg is cheap & a pill cutter can be used to cut it into 4 parts to take 1 piece a day. 1mg Finasteride (propecia) is expensive. Men or women can get Minoxidil otc. The 2% is nearly as effective as the 5%, but cheaper(about 4$ per month). If you buy the brand rogain it costs more for the same t. ...Read more

Really bad constipation! doc said miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily, can I try miralax (polyethylene glycol) mixed in prune juice for better results since prune juice didn't help by itself?

Really bad constipation! doc said miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily, can I try miralax (polyethylene glycol) mixed in prune juice for better results since prune juice didn't help by itself?

Yes, however...: It is wise to treat constipation and MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) may help; it is safe to take with prune juice. But this does not address the cause; eat more fiber, drink more water, exercise, try probiotics, get tested for hypothyroidism. I advise you try triphala, an ayurvedic formula that has many health benefits ; better addresses the cause: http://www.Planetherbs.Com/specific-herbs/the-wonders-of-triphala.Html. ...Read more

Could i take miralax (polyethylene glycol) and an herbal laxative?

Could i take miralax (polyethylene glycol) and an herbal laxative?

What kind of herbal?: There are so many herbal products in the market, which are not fda approved. It is not very clear about the drug interaction that may happen. You may take fibers supplement, plenty of fluid as part of your daily diet. Prune juice may works for some. Good luck! ...Read more

Surgery prep says take one bottle of magnesium citrate. bought milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Same or different?

Surgery prep says take one bottle of magnesium citrate. bought milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide).  Same or different?

Different: Magnesium citrate is different than milk of magnsesia. Look for citrate in a colored glass bottle usually. Ask the pharmacist if you cannot find it. It is a clear liquid and will cause BM fairly soon after you ingest it so I advise to take it at home. Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) will also cause a bowel movement but not as rapidly. ...Read more

An acid blocker: Famotidine is one of a class of drugs called h2 (histamine-2) receptor blockers--it dials down stomach acid production in a dose-dependent manner (e.g. More drug, less acid). First prescribed > 25 years ago, it is now available in lower dose as an over-the-counter acid remedy. ...Read more

If Each 5 ml contains:50mg glyceryl guaiacolate,50mgpotassium citrate,1.5mg terbutaline sulphate,14mg diphenhydramine hydrochloride.Safe for pregnancy?

Depends: The most susceptible time for the fetus is during the 1st trimester. After that, most allergy medication or cough medications are likely safe. Diphenhydramine has been associated with a slightly higher risk to develop cleft palate when used in the 1st trimester although the incidence is still very low. ...Read more

Bm 2/4. Take miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily w/ colace. Dr prescribed laxative did not help and w/ enema just got out blood tinged mucus? Appt tomorrow.

Bm 2/4. Take miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily w/ colace. Dr prescribed laxative did not help and w/ enema just got out blood tinged mucus? Appt tomorrow.

See Doctor...: I'm glad you are going to see your doctor tomorrow. It sounds like you are struggling with constipation and have tried MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) + colace stool softner and a enema without results. The blood tinged mucous is probably from enema tip trauma to the rectal walls. In the meantime i'd suggest you drink a chilled bottle of magnesium citrate followed by a few glasses of water. Good luck. ...Read more
