THIS PILL HAS BEEN IN MY MED CABENT FOR LIKE 2 YEARS IS THERE A EXP TIME OR ARE THEY OK TO USE ## Hello, Joe! How are you> These contain 20mgs of Omeprazole, with is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis.

activated charcoal tablets
what is it used for and how safe is it. and what other medicine you should not use with it. ## It is supposedly a very safe medicine to take.

Activated charcoal is also used in hospital emergency departments to treat poisoning. However, when used in this way, activated charcoal is given in much larger doses than those contained in this preparation. You should never attempt to treat poisoning yourself with this preparation. Cases of poisoning should a...
