A treatment has been prescribed but cannot be administered due to the decision by American Regent to not release their Caffeine and Sodium Benzoate Injection product (Caffeine, anhydrous (125 mg/mL) and Sodium benzoate (125 mg/mL)
2 mL single-dose vial). Does anyone take this via injection or IV, and if so, can you identify the source of the Caffeine and Sodium Benzoate Injection product? Thank you!
- Hunger from tylenol and coedine? (1 answer)
I'm 17 years old and I started taking Acetaminophen w/ Codeine No. 3 for pain due to complications from wisdom tooth extraction (I had two dry sockets and one of them was infected). I don't have any known allergies to medication, though I do take about 10 different medications for severe season allergies. Since starting the medication, however, I have noticed that around an hour afterwards, I started having a great deal of hunger and was drowsy about a half hour after taking the pill.
I just wanted to know. Are these normal side effects people have with this medication or is it just me?
- What are the weird pains in my belly
I've had this weird belly pain for the past few days now, I've been taking co codamol for a while now which doesn't seem to help, I can't explain the feeling of pain I've never had this before. I thought it was just because I needed a number 2 but that didn't help either :/
- Normal pressure hydrocephalus & metoclopramide (1 answer)
My Mom while recovering from a hip fracture in a rehab center was given Metoclopramide for 2 days when she suddenly (about 2-3 hours after her dose of metoclopramide at lunch time) became completely disoriented,lethargic and could not speak. She could barely swallow, and could not drink liquids even using a straw. Her legs/feet kept twitching and she kept raising her arms above her and repeatedly wiped her mouth every few minutes for more than an hour. I insisted that she be transported to the hospital. The E.R. staff ruled out stroke, and the next day an MRI was negative for stroke. I am wondering if the metoclopramide is at the root of her problem. She can speak slowly but her words are gibberish. Does this sound like a reaction to metoclopramide?

Fentanyl patch was administered at 75MCC for five days, and then dropped to 50MCC for 5 days. Fentanyl was discontinued after dementia and cognitive response worsened. Lidoderm 5% has been administered alternating between the fentanyl patch and is ongoing.
