Heart Burn / Indigestion Overview

Heartburn, also known as pyrosis,[1] cardialgia, or acid indigestion[2] is a burning sensation[3] in the chest, just behind the breastbone or in the epigastrium, the upper central abdomen.[4] The pain often rises in the chest and may radiate to the neck, throat, or angle of the jaw. Heartburn is usually associated with regurgitation of gastric acid (gastric reflux) which is the major symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).[5] It may also be a symptom of ischemic heart disease, thou...

colors of omeprazole 20mg

Is the omeprazole capsule 20mg colored light and dark green with the word mylan 6150 the same as a light purple capsule with g231 and a g on the other half, is this capsule omeprazole also? ## Hello, Star! How are you? No, they are not the same. The one manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals contains 20mgs of Omeprazole in a regular release formulation, but the one manufactured by Glenmarks Generics contains 20mgs in a time released formulation. The FDA classifies Omeprazole as a PPI, which is used to help lower the amount of acid produced by the stomach to help treat or prevent conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Is Omeprazole Dr And Pepcid Ac Different
2 Replies RSS
The difference between omepprazole dr and pNepcid ac ## They are both different medications in different drug classes. Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor, it helps reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach by shutting down some of the proton pumps that produce the acid. Learn more Omeprazole details here. The DR just means it is delayed release, so it keeps working for awhile after you take it. Pepcid AC is a time released formulation of Famotidine, which is a histamine, H2-receptor agonist, so it works differently than the Omeprazole. This one works more like a traditional antacid, in that your stomach still produces the same amount of acid, this just kind of neutralizes some of if afterwards. Learn more Famotidine details here. Not all medications work for everyone that tri...

omeprazole dr 40mg cap apo

I originally take OMEPRAZOL DR 40MG CAP APO. Now I take OMEPRAZOL DR 20MG CAP APO and it doesn't work as well as the 40MG CAPS... Can I take 2 of the 20MG CAPSULES? ## Hello, Arneta! How are you? Well, it is a lower dosage, so it's not going to work as well as the higher dosage did. It will take awhile for your body to adjust to the lower dosage. However no, you shouldn't raise the dosage again, without your doctor's approval. Long-term use of these PPIs risks hip fractures, according to FDA warnings. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

USE OF Unienzyme

Whether unienzyme helps to digest food & reduce blood sugar levels? I am having type-II diabetes & my sugar levels are 169/199 (fasting/PP). ## Unienzyme contains activated charcoal, fungal diastase and pepsin, which may help with digestion issues, but they will not do anything to lower your blood sugar levels. Learn more dietary supplement details here. What has your doctor recommended for treating your diabetes? ## Can unienzyme tab be taken continuously for 3-4 months?

Can I Split Nexium 40 Capsules In Half
4 Replies RSS
My doctor changed my Nexium prescription from 40 mg to 20 mg. Can I separate the pills I have in half so I don't waste what I have? ## No, you can't safely split a capsule, because there is no way to ensure that you are evenly splitting the amount of the medication that is inside them. Learn more Nexium details here. Why did your doctor lower the dosage? Unless there was some reason for doing so, there is likely little harm in finishing up what you have of the higher one and then moving to the lower dosage, since this is just a proton pump inhibitor that reduces the amount of acid your stomach produces. ## I just tried Nexium 24 (20 mg pills), and it worked great at stopping my heartburn, which I get every day and sometimes multiple times/day, but, it gave me bad cramps and diar...

what is the generic name, indication and the dosage. ## what is the generic name, indication and the dosage of papase drug?. ## Papase is not a drug, it is a natural digestive enzyme sold as a supplement. It is touted to help with gas, digestion and stomach fullness. I'm sorry, that is all the information I can find on it. Does anyone else know anything? ## PAPASE IS A DRUG. Its main pharmacological action is to reduce severe swollen gums. Other uses are known, but seldomly used compared its main preferance. Known side effects include gastric disorder, trembling (differs from person to person) and uncomfortable. ## Perhaps you should say, its agitation instead of uncomfortable.
