calci block/ tumeric
Is it safe to take tumeric caps with lercandipine 10mg? ## Hello, Edith! How are you? I'm sorry, but the Tumeric is a supplement, not an actual medication, so it has not been evaluated for possible interactions with actual prescription meds. Have you tried asking your prescriber? They may know more. Are you on any other medications? ## Thank you so much for the reply Verwon. Am on Leracandipine 10mg and Omeprazole 20mg. Have just started with the Tumeric caps - 1 daily cap of 400mg. Had a blood test and liver enzymes were slightly elavated so trying the Tumeric to see if it helps bring them back to normal. Also using the spice in some meals. Tests to be repeated in 8 weeks. Regards Edith ## Hi Edith, from what I'm seeing Turmeric should be taken with caution if you are on any dr...

can i be in the sun while takind pepcid
I got a Sun rash on my hands arms and chest and was wondering if it could be because of my pelvis pill ## Hello, Candicel30att! How are you? This isn't known to increase sun sensitivity. However, it's difficult to know what any given medication may cause in any given person that tries it, it could also be due to some other issue. Have you had your doctor look at it, yet? That would be the best thing to do, to be sure. Other side effects may include drowsiness and flatulence.

topzole Enquiry
Hi there, My Boyfriend was prescribed Topzole for 2 weeks for his bad heart burn and heavy acid reflux. He is worried however after reading on the internet that bad side effects it may have lasting up to a few months EG: hair loss? is this a possibility? Is this the best route to go? He wants to stop taking it after only a day. I am worried however that stopping it ma not be the best solution as he has only had the Nausea thus far. ## Hello, Kerry! How are you? No, if he experiences any of the side effects, they shouldn't last longer than a week or so, after finishing it. He may also experience dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?
