That will blow your liver away bud.

Do not do it. Switch to ibuprofen or aspirin. Drink tons and tons of water or juices.
I do not know what your body weight is, but that is enough acetominaphen to really do some damage.

  Phosphates are fertilizers so it's likely in there to make you fit & strong, A degree of responsibility is always essential with phosphates as they are an active constituent in bomb making & it is therefore important to keep them away from children & Muslims

  No, you will need to swallow them. Also, do not swallow too many because acetaminophen will kill you by poisoning your liver 48 hours after, if you do too many.

There are a lot of different strengths to this combination of pill. If you have the 8mg Codeine content ones, you are wasting your time.

Long term use of Codeine Phosphate 30mg?
Hello, I was wondering if there was any physical side effects of using codeine phosphate for long term use apart from the possible addiction? Thankyou!

  The most frequent adverse reactions include lightheadedness, dizziness, sedation, nausea, and vomiting. These effects seem to be more prominent in ambulatory than in non ambulatory patients, and some of these adverse reactions may be alleviated if the patient lies down.

Other adverse reactions include euphoria, dysphoria, constipation, and pruritus.

Drug Abuse and Dependence

Controlled Substance: Codeine phosphate is a Schedule II narcotic.

Dependence

Although much less potent in this regard than morphine, codeine can produce drug dependence a.d. therefore, has the potential for being abused. Patients given 60 mg codeine every 6 hours for 2 months usually show some tolerance and mild withdrawal symptoms. Development of the dependent state is recognized by an increased tolerance to the analgesic effect and the appearance of purposive phenomena (complaints, pleas, demands, or manipulative actions) shortly before the time of the next scheduled dose. A patient in withdrawal should be treated in a hospital environment. Usually, it is necessary only to provide supportive care with administration of a tranquilizer to suppress anxiety. Severe symptoms of withdrawal may require administration of a replacement narcotic.

Is it safe to mix Carisoprodol with Hydrocodone?
The Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxer I think, and it says to take one every night before bed. And then the hydrocodone is take 1 to 2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours as needed. They were both prescribed by different doctors..can I take them both together?
Oh I just read on the carisoprodol container that it's substituted for Soma. I don't know if that helps, I've never heard of either one of them lol.

Out of codeine and dextropropoxyphene, which is the strongest pain reliever?
Particularliy in combination with acetaminophen (Paracetamol, Tylenol) as follows:
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate
325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

  TYLENOL WITH CODEINE
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate

DARVOCET

325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

Your question is which is stronger- well the Darvocet is.

But the real question should be- what is more effective for pain.

That answer is- It depends on the type of pain and severity.

Darvocet is stronger.

Is taking 240mg of codeine phosphate in one dose every day dangerous?
I know about the addiction side, but I wondered whether doing this is damaging to the body?

  Yes, it is potentially very dangerous. The normal adult dosing is 15-60mg every 4-6 hours. The maximum in one dose should not exceed 60mg. The larger doses can increase the risk of codeine's side effects such as respiratory depresion, low blood pressure, slowed heart rate, seizures....
I recommend you only take the amount prescribed by your doctor, if the doses he/she prescribed aren't working, you need to talk to your doctor again to see what else they could try.


**Update** As far as the previous person stating that it was ok for you to take the 240mg at once, that is not correct. 240mg is the maximum amout recommened for a 24 hour period - not in one dose. One dose should not exceed 60mg.

You have your dosages mixed up! You need to be careful!!!

The MAX dose in 24 hours for Acetaminophen is 4000mg (4x1000mg Dose) every four hours

The Max dose of codeine in 24 hours is 400mg in ( up to 4x 100mg Single doseages) NOTE: ANYTHING AROUND 400MG SINGLE DOSE OF CODEINE CAN BE FATAL

What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
I have chronic cough and muscle stiffness and pain often. I have been prescribed everything from Tylenol 3 (30mg Codeine and Tylenol) to Hydrocodone 10mg/1000mg.

I've noticed that codeine seems quite weaker than Hydrocodone. If I take 2 hydrocodones, the same feeling takes 3-4 codeine tablets to acheive the desired feeling.

Recently, someone told me I should try Codeine Sulfate (60MG), they are small white tablets and contain no Tylenol, Asprin, or Ibuprofen. If I take 2 of these, will they be more similar to Hydrocodone or the Tylenol 3's?


What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
Repkying to first answer someone left.

Tylenol 3's and 4's are the combination of codeine with acetemetophin.

Hydrocodones (Vicodin, Lortab...etc) is the combination of Hydrocodone with acetemetophin.

Vicodin 5/500 is 5mg hydrocodone/500mg acetemetohin.

Tylenol 3's are 30mg Codeine / 300mg Acetemetophin.

Hydrocodone must be a different form of codeine that is stronger. MY main question is....What is the difference between Hydrocodone and Codeine? And where does codeine sulfate fit in the mix.

I do like your answer, it just lacks the main information I need.

  I'm not familiar with codeine sulfate vs. codeine.

I know that hydrocodone is a combination of codeine plus an NSAID. I think it's acetaminophen.

Hydrocodone will be more powerful than codeine alone, because the 2 drugs combined provide a stronger effect than either would separately. You can get the same thing from taking codeine and tylenol pills separately, 10 mg and 1000mg respectively. It's the same thing.

What OTC tablet is this?
I recently had my wisdom teeth pulled out. Well we were out of tylenol and advil and i dont like narcotics and i hadnt filled my script of non narc pain meds. Anyhow my good friend who is in her 50s, so not some young druggie teen,gave me some tablets that she said had codeine in them so be careful. Heres the thing she gave them to me in a baggie since they came from a big bottle. so i dont have that to look at. The tablet is rather thick and is convex with a flat ridge all the way around. It is all white, but has no other visible markings. (i did enquire with my friend what they were but she was going outa town and wasnt home to look at and wont be for 5 days!)
I know she didnt lie to me but for my own comfort id really like to find out what they are so i dont ruin my liver or god knows what.
I know its nearly impossible to identify an unmarked pill, and all drugs regulated by the FDA must be printed but that doesnt apply to OTC. I know their are otc codeine containing meds, im thinking its an acetaminophen/codeine phosphate type tablet. Can anyone think of what it may be from personal experience?

  Vicodin has hydrocodone in it, and codeine in th fiorinal makes them both controlled substances. The hydrodocone is a stronger narcotic, but fiorinal is the med of choice for migraines, because of the compounded drugs and their action.

Is it safe to take 600mg ibuprofen after taking codral (codeine,paracetamol, phenylephrine hydrochloride)?
I took two Codral pills about three hours ago. Each pill contains 500mg Paracetamol, 9.5mg Codeine phosphate, and 5mg Phenylephrine Hydrochloride. I took them both at the same time.

My pain has come back hardcore. I have 600mg ibuprofen pills. Is it okay to take one since it has been 3 hours since the other pills? I feel like that's an awful lot of medicine...
I only took the recommended dosage as stated on the package. I didn't just decide to take two codrals for the heck of it. The medicine is available over the counter in Australia. I don't have a doctor here yet.

Why do some people take Tylenol instead of aspirin?
I rarely taken meds like aspirin or tylenol, but I've been curious why people take Tylenol over aspirin sometimes? Is aspirin harmful, or is it just not as strong as tylenol for headaches and minor pains? What's the reasoning behind why people do or do not choose aspirin for minor pain relief?

  Aspirin is more likely to make you bleed because it thins the blood. People on prescription blood thinners or those who are prone to bleeding ulcers ( or bleeding anywhere in their body) should not take aspirin. Tylenol is safer for this reason although in large doses over a long period of time Tylenol can damage the liver. Also, unless okayed by a physician, aspirin and aspirin-containing products should not be given to children because of a serious, avoidable, rare condition it can cause called Reye's Syndrome.

What should I do if I took aspirin after possible concussion?
Slipped earlier going down the stairs at home fell on my but hard whipped my head back but did not hit it on anything. Have a pretty good headache so I took 2 aspirin.

Later read about concussions to see if I might possibly have one and have read DO NOT take aspirin after concussion. If I do have one what should I do if I took aspirin? My only symptom is a headache, nothing else.

  Chances are, you don't have a concussion. I've slipped on ice before, and I smashed my head against the it, and for a moment, I actually saw black. I laughed it off and was all fine. I just got an extreme headache, but it felt obvious I didn't have one because it went away after about an hour. (I was at school, so aspirin wasn't an option)
Is it persisting? If you have it for a couple hours, maybe you should go to the hospital, just to be safe?
You never know. Should be careful.

  VC stands for the addition of a decongestant- so you have promethazine which is an antihistamine and codeine an opiod all in one. Sounds like it may work for you. Be careful with driving until you get used to their effect. It may also affect your sleep patterns.

  Aspirin has been known to be a moderate blood thinner, with reduced clotting ability, so it is possible for the hemmoroid bleeding to increase somewhat. I suggest you keep up the aspirin regimen, but also consider taking a daily dose of a fiber supplement, such as Metamucil or Citrucel to aid in easier bowel movements.

  Sodium Phosphates is a food additive. It is used to increase the shelf life and add a texture to the food and add a ‘look’ that is pleasing and appealing to the consumer, and which will entice them to purchase and eat the product.
It can be found in all varieties off foods including (but not exclusive too) soups, readymade food, cheeses, CHICKENS, cakes....
A small number of people can develop a intolerance to Sodium Phosphate. They may experience a stiff neck, foot cramps and dizziness... perhaps a little like a hangover. Seek medical attention in such an event.

Does Promethazine or Codeine have any traces of cocaine in it?
Some dumbass white dude at my skool keeps trying to say Purple Drank/Purple Lean has cocaine in it. I'm tellin him that all Purple Drank is Sprite, and Promethazine/Codeine Cough Syrup. So basically the question is: does Promethazine or Codeine have any cocaine? I know Codeine is a narcotic, made from opium, so I dont think it has any cocaine in it.

  No. Cocaine is stimulant, and a completely different compound extracted from coca leaves. Codeine is an opiate, synthesized from morphine which in turn is synthesized from opium. Cocaine would definitely not be in a codeine mixture.

Vicodin or Tylenol w/Codeine?
Well, yesterday I was trying to experiment with some painkillers, i had 4 T3's every tylenol with codeine has 30 mg of codeine in it, i had theese for a back injury i had a while back. My friend is prescribed vicodin for a dental issue, he gave me 2 vicodin, and i gave him 2 T3's. Later on I started to not feel the numbing effect so he gave me 2 more vicodin. So i had 4 vicodin and 2 T3's. After my friend gave me the other 2 vicodin i felt the high come back a little, but not very much. I did feel like my brain was scattering alot. My question is which one is more effective, the vicodin or the tylenol with codeine? I've done some reaserch and apparently vicodin has 5-10 mg of codeine in it, is this all? or is there another substance in the drug that hits hard? or is it that because i started off with taking pills with 30 mg of codeine that vicodin doesnt effect me? So this is just a curious question.


yes, it's wrong to abuse drugs, i know there are no excuses, so i guess you can tell me how bad it is if you want. I'd prefer an answer though.

  Vicodin is brand name hydrocodone/acetaminophen (tylenol). Tylenol #3 has codeine/acetaminophen. Hydrocodone and Codeine are both derivatives of opium. Vicodin contains 5-10mg of hydrocodone and Tylenol #3 has 30mg of codeine. Hydrocodone is on a mg per mg basis more potent than codeine. So it would take less hydrocodone than codeine to get the intended analgesic effect. These medications contain acetaminophen, which when used at higher dosages can be toxic to your liver. For adults, it is not recommended to use more than 4 grams (4000mg) per day.
--edit to Cindy's answer: Yes Cindy, the activity the quetioneer has posed does present some legal implications, however since codeine and hydrocodone are related in chemical structure, if the person can safely take hydrocodone, there is very little risk that codeine would cause an allergic reaction unless they were allergic to the inactive fillers or dyes in the other medication.

How much aspirin after a heart attack?
My fiance had a heart attack about 6 months ago. He had a blocked artery and the surgeon put in a stent. All's well now, and he's taking a few medications including Plavix, Simvastatin, Pacerone, and aspirin. My concern is the amount of aspirin he's taking. The doctor originally put him on 325 mg of aspirin, but I think it's too much. He tends to bleed more than usual, even if he just nicks himself shaving. He also says he has trouble staying warm.

His next doctor's appointment is next month, so I thought I'd just ask someone here who may have similar heart conditions/medications if they think 325 mg of aspirin is too much to be taking 6 months after a heart attack.

  The usual recommendations for aspirin dosing after stent placement is 162-325 mg for either 1 month (bare metal stent), 3 months (sirolimus-eluting stent), or 6 months (paclitaxel-eluting stent). After that, the recommended dose is 75-162 mg daily.

Now these recommendations are from the AHA, but many cardiologists adapt practice based on specific characteristics of patients. At my institution, the cardiologists like to place patients on 81 mg aspirin even within the first month of stent placement.

Your fiance can most likely drop to the lower dose of aspirin (discuss with the cardiologist first, of course....), but in reality the clopidogrel is likely having a larger impact on bleeding than the aspirin (clopidogrel is an absolute must after stent placement, however, so he'll just have to be more careful shaving).

Two questions on medications?
The first question is for myself. Here is a list of old and new anti-psychotics. Can anyone tell me which one is the most sedating? Or, if you can't answer that, which is the most powerful?

Clozapine
Risperidone
Zyprexa
Seroquel

Fluphenazine
Thioridazine

The second question is for my brother. He is chronically addicted to Codeine. He has been for a long time. He was getting high from taking Panadeine Forte, but then he got banned from getting scripts for it. Now, all he does is take more and more over the counter products that contain Codeine. The family is very, very worried. He literally takes about 40 painkillers a day. 20 Panadine 15's (contains 15mg of codeine), and 20 Nurofen Plus (Contains 12.8mg of Codeine.) He is even drinking cough mixtures that contain Codeine. We are all scared to death that either his kidneys are going to blow or his mind is going to blow. If this keeps on going, how long does he have to live?

Question about different types of Clindamycin Phosphate products?
The past year I have been using clidamycin phosphate GEL for acne and it worked fairly well. I just went back to the doctor for a refill since it ran out and when I picked it up from Walgreen's, it is a topical solution that you dab on instead of a gel. Do you think it will work as well?

Aspirin and aluminium and magnesium hydroxide?
Hallo.
I am from Italy but I am in London at the moment. I was told that in England aspirins tablets are similar to the Italian ones but with two additional important "ingredients" which are aluminium and magnesium hydroxide to protect the stomach. Is that true? and if so, could somebody suggest me a good "aspirin brand" or are all the same? I bought the Aspirin Tablet B.P. 300 mg but the components are not written, except for a sentence which says that "contains the active ingredients aspirin of 300mg plus lactose, starch and talc" but no Reference to aluminium and magnesium...
thanks for your help.

Has anyone had experience with Soma plus Aspirin and codeine and Darvacet or ultram at the same time?
I have been in pain for quite a long time. I am going to a Rheumatoligist a few times a month and getting numerous testing done. So far the only thing he has found is that I have a Vitamin D deficiency. I am currently taking Soma plus Aspirin and Codeine and Darvocet. I have been switched to extended release Ultram but have not gotten the script filled yet. The Soma and Darvocet used to work at keeping my pain away but I am now being awakened by it so thats why the switch to the extended release Ultram. I just wanted to know if anyone has taken this combo of meds for long periods of time and if they are now experiencing adverse effects of doing so. I don't want to have to take these meds but so far they are the only ones that don't make my symptoms worse so I really have no choice and I am afraid of the long term effects. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Oh and if it helps, I only take them at night before bed, I can't take the meds while at work.
I have had three different doctors plus my pharmacist tell me its ok to take these meds together. The amount of pain that I am in by the end of the day is terrible. I am asleep so I don't get a high off of them and I don't take them during the day. A small part of the pain that I have is stabbing pains in my legs, arms, bottoms of my feet, in my ears and on top of my head. I also have other symptoms but tjis is the worst. There are no other medications that take this pain away enough for me to sleep. I have had to choose the lesser of two evils and take these medications. If I don't take these meds I do not sleep at all. I am just worried about the long term effects of these meds. Also if anyone knows of any other treatments for this severe kind of pain. I would love to stop taking them...but thats not possible until a different treatment is found.

How early or at what age is it ok to start taking aspirin in small doses to prevent heart disease?
Hi,

My father has had two quadruple bypasses and two heart attacks so I know a little bit about heart conditions. I am 24 right now and I want to reduce the chances of ever getting coronary heart disease. I know that low doses of aspirin around 75-81mg are prescribed to people with heart conditions to "thin" the blood and today I read an article about how not enough people take aspirin as a precaution against heart attacks. I also know that aspirin even in mild doses can cause ulcers, especially if you drink, which I do quite frequently. I wanted to know if now is a good time to start taking aspirin because even though i exercise and eat healthy and do some cardio, I also smoke, and I probably am genetically more likely to develop heart disease....Does anyone know the answer to this? Also would aspirin make me more prone to getting dizzy and unable to perform more strenuous activity because it 'thins' my blood? Thanks a lot for reading this.

  abby,

Low-dose aspirin can be started anytime, since 81mg aspirin tablets have only one side effect. We'll get to that in a moment.

You'd be much better off changing your diet and lifestyle now.

1. Stop smoking now. Never, ever restart. It killed my dad, and he's not alone in that.

2. Stop drinking now. You can drink a little now and then, but don't drink "frequently" any more.

3.Now, about your diet: the three diets (these are not diets to lose weight but diets to live on for your whole life) that have shown the most promise are the Ornish Diet (very low fat), the Mediterranean Diet (controlled fat, most of which is plant monounsaturated and fish), and the Portfolio Diet from the University of Toronto (includes "plant sterols" or oils from canola, olive, and almond), which are very good at preventing heart disease.

Go on a diet like this, do it now, and do not cheat.

Now, while you probably don't need to go on aspirin for another six to eleven years (your choice), you could go on it anytime.

You will not be dizzy from aspirin. In fact, you will not be able to tell that you take it. I run 20-30 miles a week and I take it. Have done for years.

If you do, however, there is one event you will need to watch out for--cataracts. You most likely will not get them if you wear good UV-blocking sunglasses, but you must wear them. There is an elevation in the rate of cataract formation in people taking aspirin therapy than in those who do not.

Cataracts are enclouding formations in the lens of the eye, making your vision in that eye cloudy. It forms very slowly, over years, but you can watch your vision cloud a little more each year when you get them. The treatment for this is easy, quick, and simple, but it is surgery, and you will need glasses afterward.

So, go ahead and take aspirin whenever you wish, but when you do, wear good sunglasses every time you go outside on even a halfway sunny day.

What would happen if someone were to take a 325mg Aspirin tablet every day?
I've heard that taking a daily Aspirin has certain health benefits (for heart disease and whatnot). But is the 325mg dosage way too high?
I ask because I recently bought a bottle of 325mg Aspirin that was on sale for a good price. Should I instead split a pill in half and take the half?

When I was a child, I had a bad reaction to codeine. But I can take Tylox now. Why is this?
I didn't know until recently that Tylox had codeine in it. Tylox is what they gave me after I had my kids by c-section and is the only painkiller that has ever helped me with pain. But now I am worried about taking it when I do need pain medication because of the reaction I had to codeine as a child.

What is the difference between codeine and morphine addiction?
If someone is addicted to codeine(hydrocodone etc) and quits cold turkey,
is his/her symptoms the same as someone addicted to roughly the same amount of morphine sulfate?

And,do morphine pills contain codeine as their addictive ingredient,or are hydrocodone and oxycodone very different from morphine sulfate?

Thanks,research purposes.

  Codeine is a mild opiate, that breaks down to morphine in the liver. The withdrawals are not as bad as other opiates. Hydrocodone and oxycodone are semi synthetic opiates derived from codeine. They are fairly strong and the addiction potential is much higher than codeine. He withdrawals can be pretty bad. Morphine is the gold standard of hospitals. It's abuse potential is very high, and the addiction potential is also very high. The withdrawals can be very bad. Morphine pills contain morphine sulfate, not codeine or any other opiate. Vicodin contain hydrocodone and acetaminophen, oxycontin contains oxycodone, and a Tylenol series, Tylenol 1, 2, 3, and 4 contain differing amounts of codeine and acetaminophen.

Is it safe to mix oxycodone and aspirin?
First of all I would like to say that there isn't any need for negative comments, I have a prescription for the oxycodone. I have a lot of back problems and this morning it was just killing me and I had forgotten my prescription so I took an aspirin. I'm very uneasy about mixing anything. It was around 12 or so in the afternoon when I took just one aspirin and it is now nearly 9pm so I was wondering, would it be safe to take the oxycodone now or should I wait for a longer period of time?

  It should be fairly safe to do so.

Why can't I find effervescent tylenol w/codeine in the US?
My French MIL passed away 10 yrs ago and left a stash of Efferalgan (tylenol/codeine).

Why can Europeans have access to this fast acting pain relief and not us Americans. We are always deprived of the good stuff over here! What is wrong with our pharmaceutical companies over here.

You do not need to have brain damage in order to take a long break. You can stop doing everything without brain damage. Maybe you need to rest and think about ways to help yourself feel better. It is OK to do nothing if that is what you feel like doing. You don't have to be alone with your pain. Therapy/medication can be a new beginning for you. You can do things the way you choose.

Chicken Pox vaccine reaction?
I am 18 years old and this morning at 8:30 I went to the Health Department to get my 3 month Depo-Provera shot. The receptionist said I was overdue for a Chicken Pox vaccination, and asked if I wanted a free one, so I said sure. I was given my shots and went home with no problems.

Around 10:00 AM I began to get a headache while I was at work, and I took one 5mg hydrocodone / 325mg acetaminophen caplet. The pill did not even dampen the headache whatsoever, and it began to get worse. Around 3:00 PM I could barely think straight because my head hurt so badly, so I took 2 more of the same thing. By 4:00 PM I was almost in tears from the horrible pain, and I began to tremble uncontrollably and felt very nauseated. I had to leave work early and go home. When I got home, I was desperate for relief, and took 1 Fiorinal capsule (Aspirin 325 mg / Butalbital 50 mg / Caffeine 40 mg / Codeine Phosphate 30 mg). I took my temperature twice with the only digital thermometer we have, and it said 100.1 F, but I don't actually know how accurate that thermometer is because it is old.

I fell asleep for a while, and once I woke up I went online to do some research. The women at the Health Department did not tell me you are NOT supposed to take aspirin after receiving a chicken pox vaccine because it can cause what is called Reye's Syndrome, though it is very rare. I read that a small number of people who are vaccinated for chicken pox can have a fever resulting in seizures and brain damage.

I have a dog who has seizures, so I was already well educated about them, though I started to research different kinds of auras(things you may feel before a seizure occurs) and I learned that headaches and dizziness are common.

I ate breakfast before I got the shots, and I snacked on crackers all day and ate an ice cream bar, so I don't think I was weak from hunger or anything.. Besides, the headache I experienced was worse than any headache I can ever remember having. It was so painful I could not concentrate on anything, and I was lucky I live as close as I do to where I work, because I was honestly surprised I was able to drive myself home.

I'm sure most people might tell me to visit a doctor, but I just wondered if anyone might have some information. I still felt like I had a headache when I woke up, though it was far less painful. However, it's worse than earlier, and seems to become more intense by the hour, just like earlier.
The information I found said seizures and brain reaction may occur up to 10 days after the injection. I have never had a seizure before, but since I had a fever earlier, could I have experienced some kind of brain damage that is causing what could possibly be an aura leading up to an eventual seizure?
How can I prepare for a seizure, if I do have one? Is there any other medicine I can take for headaches that doesn't contain aspirin so I don't put myself at further risk of Reye's Syndrome?

If you don't have any information, don't tell me how stupid I am for asking Yahoo Answers instead of a doctor, just don't answer at all. I don't have health insurance and if anything ever happened to me, I doubt I could afford the medication or treatment. I was just curious and wondered if maybe someone out there could be one of the few out of "10,000" chicken pox vaccinations given that had a reaction like this.

Thank you all for any help and information.

  Unlikely. And Reye's syndrome is mainly really a risk for younger people. Those aged <16.

If you remember, your headaches started before you took aspirin.

How are you feeling now? Are those your only symptoms? As a matter of precaution only (it really does not sound like you have Reye's syndrome) give your doctor a call, as the severity of your headaches do sound a little out of the ordinary, and the fact it seems to be getting worse again. It could be something entirely unrelated that needs evaluation. The reason I am telling you to seek medical attention is not because I think something is seriously wrong, but rather, this is the internet, I don't know you, only what you are describing. It's best to err on the side of caution.

Do you normally suffer from headaches?

Your concerns, regarding brain damage following vaccination are extremely unlikely and your present symptoms are not consistent with that either. If this was happening, you'd be very poorly, you wouldn't be able to sit and your computer and type a fairly long question. Also, you wouldn't expect to see such symptoms so quickly following vaccination. Try not to take your symptoms out of context. Reading symptoms on the internet will cause anxiety in anyone. You have to remember that such side effects are extremely rare, there is more likely to be another explanation.

It could well be a side effect from the vaccine, but that does not have to mean anything serious like brain damage. Headaches following vaccination isn't uncommon.

Other non Rx drug options are paracetamol or other NSAIDs and codeine.

Caveat: In case your question gets swamped by the antivaxxers; just ignore them. These people have no medical training and just hate vaccines. They will always want to attribute any symptoms to the vaccine. They don't care whether it's related or not. That it occurred after vaccination, is enough for them to think it HAS to be the vaccine. These people are illogical.

  It sounds like you weren't replenishing your liquids or electrolytes. This is very dangerous. They should have told you to also drink Gatorade or Powerade or other sports drinks (not red or purple) to replenish your electrolytes. I hope you didn't do Fleet enemas on top of the Phospho Soda Laxative because they both draw fluids from the body. If you were using a bag enema with tap water they should have told your to add little salt to the mix to stop too much absorption of water and over-working your kidneys. If you contact me in advance the next time and I can give you some tips on surviving the prep and procedure.

benzoyl peroxide gel and clindamycin phosphate?
my doctor prescribed me some benzoyl peroxide gel and clindamycin phosphate and it says to put them over my face twice each daily for acne. now, am i suppose to apply both cream twice a day resulting into 4 times a day? or am i suppose to try one out before trying the other one?

thanks

  The clindamycin is an antibiotic (also called Cleocin) mainly used to treat infection or bacteria. The benzoyl peroxide is used mainly to dry up the acne. Since they are for two different purposes, I would use both twice a day as prescribed, after washing the affected area(s).

Is there any harm in taking bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto Bismol) 262 mg. tablet a few times a week?
I am kind of addicted to them, because I hate having diarrhea so much that at the first sign of a very loose stool, I take Pepto. My bf is worried that this may be bad for me or cause bad side effects. Does anyone know?
Okay, addicted may have been too strong a word. I do try to watch my diet, also, so as not to have digestive upsets in the first place. I was already taking a baby aspirin a day, though, so whoever said there is aspirin in Pepto has given me something to think about.

  first of all do you know the cause of your disarrah if so attack that cause first. eat healthy. if you follow the package directions you should be ok but through time it can affect your organs as do all medications they can affect your filtering organs such as your liver. so be cautious and don't over do it. any thing you do too much of is not too good especially medications if you go to your doctor he can take a stool and blood sample and then give you something specific for your problem. so i caution you. good luck coping with your annoying symptom.

how long until i can drink alcohol after taking tylenol w/ codeine?
Hii :)
So my dentist prescribed me Tylenol w/ Codeine to take "as needed for pain" and the label says not to take it with alcohol... but my friend's birthday party is in 4 days and I know I'm going to want to drink. How long does codeine stay in your system? If I stop taking it 2 days before the party, will I be able to drink? Or will it still be in my system?

switching from tylenol w/ codeine to normal tylenol?
i had my tonsils out 3 days ago and im in excruciating pain. but since it hurts so much to swallow, ive barely been able to get any food in me. i am srsly scared of getting really sick due to no food.

i was prescribed tylenol with codeine but everytime i took it (even when i tried eating with it ) i got HORRIBLE nausea after it tht dosent go away for hours...

so i stop taking the codeine and bought normal extra strength tylenol...should this be easier on my stomach or shuld i just deal with the pain til it goes away?

i would choose pain over nausea...i jus wanna kno if normal tylenol will be better on my stomach? and shuld i take it with milk?

  The regular tylenol should not upset the stomach like the tylenol with codeine does - However it will not control the pain as well as the tylenol

Second, its been three days since you have had the tonsils out and should not be experiencing that much pain - If you are I suggest contacting the Md who took them out

Are you still bleeding from the sutures any more? If you are you may be swallowing blood and that maybe what you are sick to your stomach from (another reason to call the Md)

No, I would not take it with milk, Milk will produce phlem in the back of the throat and irritate it. try tea.

Calcium in Calcium Carbonate vs Calcium in Calcium Phosphate?
I take daily Calcium supplements of about 1200mgs, and I noticed that sometimes the label on my selected brand says Calcium Carbonate and others Calcium Phosphate.
What is the difference, assuming the same amount is being taken?
Which is easier to digest? and why?
Which is preferable to take in the supplement and is utilized better by the body or does it make any difference at all?

  Comparison of calcium absorption rates:

Oxalate is the least absorbable.
Carbonate absorption can be as low as 22%.
Citrate-malate is the most absorbable -- it has been measured at 42%, nearly double that of carbonate.

In terms of efficacy, are these two medicines the same?
I am taking ophthalmic steroid drops to treat uveitis. The first doctor I saw put me on Pred Forte (which is prednisolone acetate 1%), which worked quite well. The doctor she referred me to, however, ordered prednisolone sodium phosphate 1% when I requested a prescription refill. Aside from the fact that the acetate is milky white and the sodium phosphate is clear, the sodium phosphate does not seem to work as well.

Does anyone have any clinical knowledge or personal experience with the efficacy of both of these medicines?
Thanks, Dave! Your answer has been very helpful. Thankfully I'm no longer being treated by the doc who prescribed the phosphate, but I continue to discover things he did that were seriously wrong...should have listened to my instincts the first time I met him. The opthalmologist I'm with now has his act together and knows what he's doing (and isn't afraid to tell me about what the previous doc did wrong).

I'm leaving this question open for a while longer because I now have a follow-up that I'm hoping Dave or someone else will be able to answer.

My pharmacy is also a source of major screw ups. They didn't have Pred Forte when I went for a refill, so I now have Falcon's generic. I'm beginning the tapering off process and will have to switch to the new bottle later today. Do you think Falcon is one of the "better" generics (i.e. am I more at risk for another flare?)

Thanks! :)

  Yes, they are different, as the sodium phosphate form doesn't penetrate into the eye as well as the acetate form will. Many docs find the phosphate form is good for treating superficial inflammation, only (like allergies), and I personally wouldn't treat uveitis with anything but Pred Forte for reasons you've discovered.

And even there, many of the generic forms of pred acetate don't work as well as Pred Forte (pink bottle), and hence why many docs will write "no substitution" when Rxing Pred Forte.

PS remember to shake well before putting in your eye, as the med is the milky substance which settles to the bottom.

  In general, medical studies of IBS during pregnancy recommend conservative treatment, including dietary changes, soluble fiber suplements, exercise, and biofeedback. Pregnancy seems just as likely to affect IBS for the better and not automatically for the worse. Your OB/GYN should be able to address all of your concerns.


Codeine is a category C drug. It can cause harm to the fetus. Research has suggested that there is a correlation between congenital defects and codeine use during pregnancy. i.e. ear, eye, cardiac, hypospadias, etc. Also, the infant becomes "addicted" and goes through "withdrawal" after birth. It is safe to breastfeed while on codeine.

In regards to Imodium sulfate; Imodium A-D has been proven safe for use during pregnancy. Check withyour Dr. on the daily dosing guide.

  I dont think these two correlate at all but there ARE alternative blood thinning herbs that would be a better choice. Aspirin does not "increase" bleeding, what it does is "thin" the blood so that it flows more quickly through the system.
As far as the IUD and increased bleeding, this is normal.

his physician has started him on Aggrenox. as you begin to ring up his prescription, along with a bottle of aspirin, he looks at the pt information sheet and says, " i didn't know this had aspirin in it. you can delete that from my order." you alert the pharmacist. What do you expect the pharmacist will explain to the pt about this medication?

Can I take Tylenol w/ codeine #3 for pain from a severe UTI/kidney infection?
My doctor called in a script for pain medication but I haven't been able to pick it up yet. I found this old prescription in my medicine cabinet and am wondering if it is safe to take. It has an expiration date of 4/03 but I don't think that should make a difference. I am just wondering if the tylenol/codeine combo would be bad for the kidneys. Thoughts??

  The clindamycin is a thinner, more watery, alcohol-based medication, so you should apply it first. Then, apply the benzoyl peroxide, which is a cream. If you apply a cream first, it the alcohol-based medication will just dissolve the cream.

You should just apply enough of each so that a very thin layer is present on the skin. Using too much will only result in over-irritation and not increased results.

You should NOT be using the Retin-A and benzoyl peroxide at the same time of day. Retinoids (like Retin-A) and benzoyl peroxide interfere with one another. So, you should only be using the benzoyl peroxide in the morning when you're not using the Retin-A. You can use the clindamycin both morning and night with each. You will want to apply an oil-free moisturizer before you apply the Retin-A at night; this will help to reduce the irritation, sensitivity, and redness that the Retin-A will cause as your skin adjusts to the medication.

You must have a pretty oily complexion (as I do); these are all pretty drying medications, so be prepared for that. Good luck!
