ACID REBOUND and Rebamipide Mucosta
after stopping meds omeprazole 20mg twice a day which i took for 45 days, i suffered from acid rebound, severe burning sensation in stomach i never felt before after i was told by a gastroent to stop taking meds. he put me on mucosta 3x a day for 7 days and asked me to come back if symptoms still there. is mucosta safe to take 2wks and wont cause any complications? ## Why were you taking the Omeprazole? If it was to treat a specific condition, such as an ulcer or GERD, then 45 days is a really short time to be on it, most of these medications are used for at least 3 to 4 months. Did he say why he wanted you to stop taking it? Acid rebound is always possible, when you stop using these types of medications abruptly. The Rebamipide is an amino acid derivative, that is used to mucosal prote...

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...
