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.

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. ## Hello, Sue! How are you? Yes, these are 800mg Gabapentin tablets that are manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals. There may be a different inactive ingredient that could be causing your indigestion. Have you tried taking it with food? ## thank you so much, I feel much better.

ganaton od substitute for ganaton in Us
My wife who came to US from abroad is using Ganaton which is not available in the US. Please indicate a substitute. Thanks. ## Hi Adam, Ganaton Od reportedly contains the active ingredient Itopride Hydrochloride (150mgs); which is used for treating symptoms of chronic gastritis. If your wife mentions this to her doctor, he/she will surely be able to suggest and/or prescribe an alternative that should be suitable for her. There are several types of medications that treat similar symptoms, such as an antacid or proton pump inhibitors. But based on my research, treatment of gastritis depends on the specific cause. And this is something her doctor needs to determine in order to prescribe the appropriate treatment option. I hope this helps!

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...
