Why is edecrin so expensive it is a generic drug. ?
Asked by Tamela Sigg 1 year ago.

Edecrin is the designer name for Ethnacrynic Acid. The latter would be the generic name. So if you got Edecrin, you didn't recieve a generic. Answered by Minnie Presnall 1 year ago.

What is magnesium supplement used for?
Asked by Keren Woodward 1 year ago.

Magnesium supplementation may be indicated when a specific health problem or condition causes an excessive loss of magnesium or limits magnesium absorption [2,7,9-11]. * Some medicines may result in magnesium deficiency, including certain diuretics, antibiotics, and medications used to treat cancer (anti-neoplastic medication) [12,14,19]. Examples of these medications are: o Diuretics: Lasix, Bumex, Edecrin, and hydrochlorothiazide o Antibiotics: Gentamicin, and Amphotericin o Anti-neoplastic medication: Cisplatin * Individuals with poorly-controlled diabetes may benefit from magnesium supplements because of increased magnesium loss in urine associated with hyperglycemia [21]. * Magnesium supplementation may be indicated for persons with alcoholism. Low blood levels of magnesium occur in 30% to 60% of alcoholics, and in nearly 90% of patients experiencing alcohol withdrawal [17-18]. Anyone who substitutes alcohol for food will usually have significantly lower magnesium intakes. * Individuals with chronic malabsorptive problems such as Crohn's disease, gluten sensitive enteropathy, regional enteritis, and intestinal surgery may lose magnesium through diarrhea and fat malabsorption [22]. Individuals with these conditions may need supplemental magnesium. * Individuals with chronically low blood levels of potassium and calcium may have an underlying problem with magnesium deficiency. Magnesium supplements may help correct the potassium and calcium deficiencies [19]. * Older adults are at increased risk for magnesium deficiency. The 1999-2000 and 1998-94 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys suggest that older adults have lower dietary intakes of magnesium than younger adults [6,23]. In addition, magnesium absorption decreases and renal excretion of magnesium increases in older adults [4]. Seniors are also more likely to be taking drugs that interact with magnesium. This combination of factors places older adults at risk for magnesium deficiency [4]. It is very important for older adults to consume recommended amounts of dietary magnesium. Doctors can evaluate magnesium status when above-mentioned medical problems occur, and determine the need for magnesium supplementation. Table 4 describes some important interactions between certain drugs and magnesium. These interactions may result in higher or lower levels of magnesium, or may influence absorption of the medication.

Bipolar and meds combo?
What other meds combos are apart from old stand by lithium? Asked by Pearline Holstege 1 year ago.

you don't need combos for bipolar disorder because if you have one...it doesn't work, the dosage can be upped and it'll end up working. Lithium is pretty dangerous considering most medications can affect you and make the lithium not work... * acetazolamide (Diamox); * aminophylline (Truphylline) or theophylline (Elixophyllin, Respbid, Theo-Bid, Theo-Dur, Uniphyl); * sodium bicarbonate (Alka-Seltzer, Bicitra, Polycitra, or baking soda home remedy antacid); * carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol); * fluoxetine (Prozac); * metronidazole (Flagyl); * potassium iodide thyroid medication (Pima); * an ACE inhibitor such as benazepril (Lotensin), captopril (Capoten), fosinopril (Monopril), enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), moexipril (Univasc), perindopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril), ramipril (Altace), or trandolapril (Mavik); * a calcium channel blocker such as diltiazem (Tiazac, Cartia, Cardizem) or verapamil (Calan, Covera, Isoptin, Verelan); * a diuretic (water pill) such as amiloride (Midamor, Moduretic), bumetanide (Bumex), chlorthalidone (Hygroton, Thalitone), ethacrynic acid (Edecrin), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, HydroDiuril, Hyzaar, Vasoretic,Zestoretic), indapamide (Lozol), metolazone (Mykrox, Zaroxolyn), spironolactone (Aldactazide, Aldactone), triamterene (Dyrenium, Maxzide, Dyazide), torsemide (Demadex), and others; * medicines to treat psychiatric disorders, such as haloperidol (Haldol), aripiprazole (Abilify), chlorpromazine (Thorazine), clozapine (Clozaril, Fazaclo), olanzapine (Zyprexa), quetiapine (Seroquel), pimozide (Orap), risperidone (Risperdal), or ziprasidone (Geodon); or * celecoxib (Celebrex) or an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), diclofenac (Voltaren), diflunisal (Dolobid), etodolac (Lodine), flurbiprofen (Ansaid), indomethacin (Indocin), ketoprofen (Orudis), ketorolac (Toradol), mefenamic acid (Ponstel), meloxicam (Mobic), nabumetone (Relafen), piroxicam (Feldene), and others. that's all that you couldn't take with Lithium. plus, it's recommended to have your blood drawn every so often while on it. and it causes weight gain....yeah, not good. BUT. Lamictal is probably the newest drug on the market for BP. i take it and have been for 2 years now since i was diagnosed with type II bipolar disorder....it's a 5 week process, but it's worth the wait. i think it's a miracle drug and doesn't cause all the side effects other drugs have. in rare cases a body rash can happen, to some people. but even with that, it's not even life threatening. i've only had to up my dosage from 100mg [stayed at that for a year and a half] to 150mg. and now...after my struggles with BP for all of high school...i'm a senior and happy 85% of the time. to the point where people wouldn't even figure somethings wrong with me. so my advice...talk to your doc about switching Lamictal. it doesn't cause weight gain. in my experience, along with my adderall i lost the 30 pounds i gained when i was depressed. back at 160 at 6'2'. research the drug...really it's probably the best. i asked my psych why he didn't put me on lithium, and told me that even though lithium is the most popular drug, he's found in that nearly 2/3 of his bipolar patients of his patients [who was put on that at first or other mood stabilizers didn't work] since the drug came out has worked very well for them. Answered by Tammi Ristau 1 year ago.

Lithium, is by far the best for True Bipolar. You must get your blood tests regular to check your lithium levels, but it is known to work the best. My son took this for many years and he did the best on it. He now refuses and his life is a mess because of it. Answered by Kimbra Cains 1 year ago.

For mood stabilizers, there is Depakote, Topamax, Lamitcal, Abilify... There are more, can't think of them all. Anti-depressants, Prozac, Zoloft, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Lexapro, etc etc. There are also mixes like Symbyax, which is Prozac with and antipsychotic. There are a whole bunch of things... Answered by Izola Mostert 1 year ago.

What are the benefits of a diuretic?
coffee, jamaica, etc... Asked by Diamond Rhee 1 year ago.

Diuretics, which cause reduction of water and sodium, have been the mainstays of anti-hypertensive therapy.Diuretics are inexpensive and are the drug of choice for most people with hypertension. Diuretics significantly reduce the risk for stroke; they may in fact be the most important anti-hypertensive agent for preventing this brain attack. They also appear to protect against stroke in people without hypertension. They are associated with lower risk for heart attack (although this is not as significant as their protection against stroke). They may protect against blood clots. Diuretics may help reduce the risk for dementia and the rate of fractures in elderly people who have taken them for a long time. Three primary types of diuretics exist: Thiazides. Thiazides often serve as the basis for high blood pressure treatment, either taken alone for mild to moderate hypertension or used in combination with other types of drugs. There are many thiazides and thiazide-related drugs; some common ones are chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Hygroton), indapamide (Lozol), and hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, HydroDiuril). Loop diuretics. Loop diuretics block sodium transport in parts of the kidney; they act faster than thiazides and have a great diuretic effect. It is important therefore to control the medication and avoid dehydration and potassium loss. Loop diuretics include bumetanide (Bumex), furosemide (Lasix), and ethacrynic acid (Edecrin). Potassium sparing agents. Some potassium-sparing diuretics include amiloride (Midamor), spironolactone (Aldactone), and triamterene (Dyrenium).

Have you ever had a drug test that came out positive and you know that you haven't done any drugs.?
Asked by Thomasena Christophel 1 year ago.

According to a news report from the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive drug test results in the most widely administered urine drug test procedure. Ronald Siegel, a psychopharmacologist at UCLA said 'The widespread testing and reliance on tell-tale traces of drugs in the urine is simply a panic reaction invoked because the normal techniques for controlling drug use haven't worked very well. The next epidemic will be testing abuse." Currently there are more than 250 over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs that can cause false positives Over-the-counter NSAIDS: lbuprofen; Advil, Nuprin, Mediprim, Motrin, Bayer Select Pain Relief Formula, Excedrin IB Caplets, Genpril, Haltran, lbuprin, Midol 200, Pamprin, Trendar Cramp Relief Formula, Cramp End Tablets, Medipren, Rufln, Naproxen, Aleve, Ketoprofen, Orudis KT. Prescription NSAIDS: Anaprox, Tolectin, ifenoprofen, flurbiprofen, oxaprozin, Ansaid, Clinoril, Dolobid, Feldene, Indocin, Lodine, Meclomen, Motrin, Nalfon, Naprosyn, Orudis, Relafen, Voltaren. Over-the-counter allergy preparations, sleep aids and antinausea medications that contain promethazine: Phenergan, Promethegan. Riboflavin (vitamin B2), Dronabinol, Edecrin Amoxicillin, tonic water, kidney infection, kidney disease liver disease, diabetes Answered by Shiela Gauntlett 1 year ago.

No, never had to take a drug test. But, I know there are over the counter and prescribed drugs that can make you test positive. That is why when you go for a test, you tell them, in writing, what you are on. Also, something as simple as a muffin loaded with poppy seeds has been known to do a weird thing with tests. Answered by Macie Messner 1 year ago.

I know there are medications out there that will show up on a drug test as something else.. I'm not what they're called tho. My friends dad had the same thing happen to him.. He was applying for a new job and didn't get it because his medications showed up on his drug test as something else. I know he takes alot of medications for his heart, but definately doesn't do drugs. Answered by Gaye Douthit 1 year ago.

Certain prescription and over the counter drugs can cause false positives for some drugs. If you gave the tester a record of drugs you've taken recently and your prescriptions, they'll factor these into the results. Answered by Ryann Murga 1 year ago.

false positives happen all of the time. It can be a combination of foods, OTC meds which have an offset potentiation factor, or a simple lab mistake....THIS JUST happened to a very close friend of mine..TWICE in a row. She stuck with it. Se was in the right..and was undaunted..they had mixed up her test with someone Else's.....it was on account of custody so as apparent she was NOT going to allow this to be beating her up emotionally and taking it on the chin. It DOES happen I failed a lie detector test once...not having done anything, it is just that I was so nervous! But, here I am not the issue....I simply wanted to show that the truest and best equipment or office or lab workers CAN make mistakes or have tainted lab tubes. Stick with it. YES In answer to your query, it can, does and will happen...If this has happened to you. My recommendation is to insist to have it done ASAP again! My friend did and ended up with her daughter within two days. Life is like this take nothing for granted, mistake are made..and you are so worth it! Answered by Jason Lafaso 1 year ago.

It could be something you ate. Also, if someone is on Xanax or any type of prescription medication that may look like illegal drug use but isn't, let the person testing you know about it. Bring your prescription with you. Answered by Matilda Rayner 1 year ago.

I haven't personally. But I have heard that certain over the counter medications can cause a false positive. Hope that helps. Answered by Rosamaria Mouzon 1 year ago.

no but a friend of mine tested positive for opiates while he was on probation I don't know exactly what drugs would show up as opiates but he hadn't done any and I know him well enough to know this, I guess he and his girlfriend had gotten some muffins with a lot of poppy seeds on them and that was enough to do the trick Answered by Lavonna Symeon 1 year ago.

not had a drugs test but a few years ago when i changed doctor i went to see him and he asked me had i stopped taking drugs,i told him i never had,but my records showed that i had ?.apparantly years before someone from my old doctors had the same name as me and the records were used wrongly !.i was well pissed off for a while.glad i got that off my chest.

Answered by Kacy Saddat 1 year ago.

Depending on how many PPM (parts per million) the test is based on, it is possible to fail a urine test by just hanging out with people that are smoking. If you haven't been hanging out with anyone that smokes, the only other way you'd be positive for THC is by ingesting some in a baked good. Illnesses of the kidneys and/or liver can cause a false positive. I am assuming that you ruled out prescriptions that can cause a false positive. Ibuprofen has been known to cause false positives for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, as does Aleve, Anaprox, Ansaid, Atripla, Bayer Select Pain Relief Formula, Clinoril, Cramp End Tablets, Datril, Dolobid, Edecrin, Efavirenz, Excedrin IB, Feldene, Fenoprofin, Flurbiprofen, Genpril, Haltran, Hempseed Oil, Ibuprin, Ifenoprofen, Indocin, Ketoprofen, Lodine, Marinol, Meclomen, Mediprim, Medipren, Midol, Motrin, Nalfon, Naprosyn, Naproxen, Naproxyn, NSAIDS, Nuprin, Orudis KT, Oxaprozin, Pamprin, Pantoprazole, Promethazine, Promethegan, Rufin, Sustiva, Tolectin, Vitamin B2 and Voltaren. If you have ingested any of the above pharmaceuticals , you are the victim of a false positive and should bring this to the attention of the testing lab and the prospective employer in question. xx Answered by Marianela Broach 1 year ago.

if you are on any of the following medications you can show THC in your system - Dronabinol (Marinol) Ibuprofen; (Advil, Nuprin, Motrin, Excedrin IB etc) Ketoprofen (Orudis KT) Kidney infection (Kidney disease, diabetes) Liver Disease Naproxen (Aleve) Promethazine (Phenergan, Promethegan) Riboflavin (B2, Hempseed Oil) Ibuprofen would have to be very high dosages to trigger a false positive.

If you gain weight while you smoke weed (as many people do with the munchies and all) thc stores in your fat cells. Which is fine and all, it doesn't do anything while it sits there.

There are many thiazides and thiazide-related drugs; some common ones are chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Hygroton), indapamide (Lozol), and hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, HydroDiuril). Loop diuretics. Loop diuretics block sodium transport in parts of the kidney; they act faster than thiazides and have a great diuretic effect. It is important therefore to control the medication and avoid dehydration and potassium loss. Loop diuretics include bumetanide (Bumex), furosemide (Lasix), and ethacrynic acid (Edecrin). Potassium sparing agents. Some potassium-sparing diuretics include amiloride (Midamor), spironolactone (Aldactone), and triamterene (Dyrenium).

No, never had to take a drug test. But, I know there are over the counter and prescribed drugs that can make you test positive.

false positives happen all of the time.

Se was in the right..and was undaunted..they had mixed up her test with someone Else's.....it was on account of custody so as apparent she was NOT going to allow this to be beating her up emotionally and taking it on the chin.

Answered by Shantell Delzer 1 year ago.

Depending on how many PPM (parts per million) the test is based on, it is possible to fail a urine test by just hanging out with people that are smoking. If you haven't been hanging out with anyone that smokes, the only other way you'd be positive for THC is by ingesting some in a baked good. Illnesses of the kidneys and/or liver can cause a false positive. I am assuming that you ruled out prescriptions that can cause a false positive. Ibuprofen has been known to cause false positives for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, as does Aleve, Anaprox, Ansaid, Atripla, Bayer Select Pain Relief Formula, Clinoril, Cramp End Tablets, Datril, Dolobid, Edecrin, Efavirenz, Excedrin IB, Feldene, Fenoprofin, Flurbiprofen, Genpril, Haltran, Hempseed Oil, Ibuprin, Ifenoprofen, Indocin, Ketoprofen, Lodine, Marinol, Meclomen, Mediprim, Medipren, Midol, Motrin, Nalfon, Naprosyn, Naproxen, Naproxyn, NSAIDS, Nuprin, Orudis KT, Oxaprozin, Pamprin, Pantoprazole, Promethazine, Promethegan, Rufin, Sustiva, Tolectin, Vitamin B2 and Voltaren.

What is magnesium supplement used for?
Asked by Joey Piekos 1 year ago.

Magnesium supplementation may be indicated when a specific health problem or condition causes an excessive loss of magnesium or limits magnesium absorption [2,7,9-11]. * Some medicines may result in magnesium deficiency, including certain diuretics, antibiotics, and medications used to treat cancer (anti-neoplastic medication) [12,14,19]. Examples of these medications are: o Diuretics: Lasix, Bumex, Edecrin, and hydrochlorothiazide o Antibiotics: Gentamicin, and Amphotericin o Anti-neoplastic medication: Cisplatin * Individuals with poorly-controlled diabetes may benefit from magnesium supplements because of increased magnesium loss in urine associated with hyperglycemia [21]. * Magnesium supplementation may be indicated for persons with alcoholism. Low blood levels of magnesium occur in 30% to 60% of alcoholics, and in nearly 90% of patients experiencing alcohol withdrawal [17-18]. Anyone who substitutes alcohol for food will usually have significantly lower magnesium intakes. * Individuals with chronic malabsorptive problems such as Crohn's disease, gluten sensitive enteropathy, regional enteritis, and intestinal surgery may lose magnesium through diarrhea and fat malabsorption [22]. Individuals with these conditions may need supplemental magnesium. * Individuals with chronically low blood levels of potassium and calcium may have an underlying problem with magnesium deficiency. Magnesium supplements may help correct the potassium and calcium deficiencies [19]. * Older adults are at increased risk for magnesium deficiency. The 1999-2000 and 1998-94 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys suggest that older adults have lower dietary intakes of magnesium than younger adults [6,23]. In addition, magnesium absorption decreases and renal excretion of magnesium increases in older adults [4]. Seniors are also more likely to be taking drugs that interact with magnesium. This combination of factors places older adults at risk for magnesium deficiency [4]. It is very important for older adults to consume recommended amounts of dietary magnesium. Doctors can evaluate magnesium status when above-mentioned medical problems occur, and determine the need for magnesium supplementation. Table 4 describes some important interactions between certain drugs and magnesium. These interactions may result in higher or lower levels of magnesium, or may influence absorption of the medication.

Bipolar and meds combo?
What other meds combos are apart from old stand by lithium? Asked by Cherrie Finocan 1 year ago.

you don't need combos for bipolar disorder because if you have one...it doesn't work, the dosage can be upped and it'll end up working. Lithium is pretty dangerous considering most medications can affect you and make the lithium not work... * acetazolamide (Diamox); * aminophylline (Truphylline) or theophylline (Elixophyllin, Respbid, Theo-Bid, Theo-Dur, Uniphyl); * sodium bicarbonate (Alka-Seltzer, Bicitra, Polycitra, or baking soda home remedy antacid); * carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol); * fluoxetine (Prozac); * metronidazole (Flagyl); * potassium iodide thyroid medication (Pima); * an ACE inhibitor such as benazepril (Lotensin), captopril (Capoten), fosinopril (Monopril), enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), moexipril (Univasc), perindopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril), ramipril (Altace), or trandolapril (Mavik); * a calcium channel blocker such as diltiazem (Tiazac, Cartia, Cardizem) or verapamil (Calan, Covera, Isoptin, Verelan); * a diuretic (water pill) such as amiloride (Midamor, Moduretic), bumetanide (Bumex), chlorthalidone (Hygroton, Thalitone), ethacrynic acid (Edecrin), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, HydroDiuril, Hyzaar, Vasoretic,Zestoretic), indapamide (Lozol), metolazone (Mykrox, Zaroxolyn), spironolactone (Aldactazide, Aldactone), triamterene (Dyrenium, Maxzide, Dyazide), torsemide (Demadex), and others; * medicines to treat psychiatric disorders, such as haloperidol (Haldol), aripiprazole (Abilify), chlorpromazine (Thorazine), clozapine (Clozaril, Fazaclo), olanzapine (Zyprexa), quetiapine (Seroquel), pimozide (Orap), risperidone (Risperdal), or ziprasidone (Geodon); or * celecoxib (Celebrex) or an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), diclofenac (Voltaren), diflunisal (Dolobid), etodolac (Lodine), flurbiprofen (Ansaid), indomethacin (Indocin), ketoprofen (Orudis), ketorolac (Toradol), mefenamic acid (Ponstel), meloxicam (Mobic), nabumetone (Relafen), piroxicam (Feldene), and others. that's all that you couldn't take with Lithium. plus, it's recommended to have your blood drawn every so often while on it. and it causes weight gain....yeah, not good. BUT. Lamictal is probably the newest drug on the market for BP. i take it and have been for 2 years now since i was diagnosed with type II bipolar disorder....it's a 5 week process, but it's worth the wait. i think it's a miracle drug and doesn't cause all the side effects other drugs have. in rare cases a body rash can happen, to some people. but even with that, it's not even life threatening. i've only had to up my dosage from 100mg [stayed at that for a year and a half] to 150mg. and now...after my struggles with BP for all of high school...i'm a senior and happy 85% of the time. to the point where people wouldn't even figure somethings wrong with me. so my advice...talk to your doc about switching Lamictal. it doesn't cause weight gain. in my experience, along with my adderall i lost the 30 pounds i gained when i was depressed. back at 160 at 6'2'. research the drug...really it's probably the best. i asked my psych why he didn't put me on lithium, and told me that even though lithium is the most popular drug, he's found in that nearly 2/3 of his bipolar patients of his patients [who was put on that at first or other mood stabilizers didn't work] since the drug came out has worked very well for them.

What are the benefits of a diuretic?
coffee, jamaica, etc... Asked by Alfredo Dixson 1 year ago.

Diuretics, which cause reduction of water and sodium, have been the mainstays of anti-hypertensive therapy.Diuretics are inexpensive and are the drug of choice for most people with hypertension. Diuretics significantly reduce the risk for stroke; they may in fact be the most important anti-hypertensive agent for preventing this brain attack. They also appear to protect against stroke in people without hypertension. They are associated with lower risk for heart attack (although this is not as significant as their protection against stroke). They may protect against blood clots. Diuretics may help reduce the risk for dementia and the rate of fractures in elderly people who have taken them for a long time. Three primary types of diuretics exist: Thiazides. Thiazides often serve as the basis for high blood pressure treatment, either taken alone for mild to moderate hypertension or used in combination with other types of drugs. There are many thiazides and thiazide-related drugs; some common ones are chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Hygroton), indapamide (Lozol), and hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, HydroDiuril).
