omeprazole and domperidone for backpain
this capsule is giben for backpain alongwith SAMONECPLUS n TIZAN 2. i just want to know is this prescription of subject item is the right prescrption? ## @pradeep, Just to confirm, Omeprazole is used to treat heartburn, and Domperidone is an antiemetic drug, that is typically used to treat symptoms of motion sickness (such as nausea and vomiting). So based on these indications I don't see how either of those options would be beneficial for back pain? The other two medications however, are meant to be used for pain relief (assuming you meant to say Tizanidine, which is a muscle relaxant). Samonec plus contains a combination of two non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Aceclofenac + Paracetamol. You can also learn more about each of these drugs on the pages for Aceclofenac Details, Pa...

oblong white pill, split in middle, one side of split has 1 on it, other side of split has 3 on it, other side of pill is blank.
this pill is not quite 3/4" long. My pharmacy substituted it for Gabopentin and when I questioned it they said it was a change of Mfg. I'm leery of it, it is larger than gabopentin and tends to give me indigestion. Please set my mind at ease. Thank you.

esso 40mg advised me to take one esso before breakfast i am using sert after breakfast....if i forget to take esso before bf can i take it later..before sert or? Kindly advise.... ## Hello, Khan! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed between the Esso and Sert, you should double check with your doctor to be certain, but they should be fine to take together. Learn more Esso details here. Learn more Sert details here. However, for the Esso to work best, it should be taken just before a meal, not after. The reason for that is to give it a chance to start working, by the time your stomach is releasing more stomach acids to digest your meal. Is there any way you could make some type of reminder for yourself to take it before breakfast and not afterwards? ## what a...
