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...

Omeprazole tied to knee pain?
Have been taking omeprazole 20 mg BID for about four months. Experiencing debilitating knee joint pain lately and tried to rule out variables such as gluten sensitivity, dairy, etc etc. No improvement. Stopped taking this med and in days knee pain gone. Correlation? Why? ## Hello, MJCARNINO! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you've had. Yes, leg pain can be a side effect of this medication, though as is usual, there's real no explanation as for why it may cause it. However, there are other options that you can try. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I don't have GERD, but my doctor thinks I may have silent reflux. As precaution, he told me to take one Prilosec per day before bedtime. I started 3 days ago, and have developed severe mujscle and joint pain, mos...

L194 is not Famotidine
I also found a round pill that is smooth, round but not flat and has L194 on one side... The other side is blank. I remember taking them I thought for pain but i threw away the bottle.. I don't believe It's for heartburn... Help ## 20mgs of Famotidine is exactly what these tablets are, I have a bottle right here, because I take them every day for GERD and gastritis.

dark green pill with M, no other identification.
I found several dark free, circular pills with either a M or W printed on one side. No imprints on the other side. Can you please identify? Thanks. ## Hi concernedmom, Based on the description provided, I've identified your pill as a 240mg Mylanta tablet, containing a combination of aluminum hydroxide + magnesium hydroxide + simethicone. The correct marking is actually an "M" as you first mentioned. Mylanta is an over the counter antacid used for treating symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease; including heartburn, gas, and acid indigestion. And for verification, the manufacturer is reported to be Johnson & Johnson/Merck Pharmaceuticals, who seem to be on some sort of joint venture. I hope this helps!

small round orange pill with s
It had a line on one side and an s on the other side very small and orange ## Hi lulu, I haven't found a definitive match, but from what little bit I could gather there are reports suggesting that this particular pill may contain 40mgs of Famotidine (Durater), made by a company called Senosiain Labs in Mexico. If this is the case, it would help explain why references are so hard to come by on US search engines. Apparently they list it as being "peach" colored and not orange. It's also reported to be about a quarter of an inch in diameter; but maybe you could try contacting the manufacturer directly to see if they can verify this for you. More details (although in spanish) on this medication from Senosiain Labs can also be viewed here:

is there any interaction between pariet and dexamphetimine
Is there any interaction between Pariet and Dexamphetimine ## Hello, Julie! How are you? Have they both been prescribed for you? The Pariet may reduce the efficacy of the Dextroamphetamine, so it may not work as well for you. The Dextroamphetamine also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, irritability, weight loss and anorexia.

are there any adverse interactions between pencillin and amox tr k
I was provided a new prescription for amox tr-k for an infected tooth/gum. After taking the 1st dose, I experienced an upset stomach 4 hours after taking it with food. I have decided to go back to the original prescription of pencillin, and am wondering if there are any adverse drug interactions that would require me to wait until the 12 amox tr-k dose time has expired, or if I can switch and take a dose of pencillin before going to bed? ## Hello, Steve! How are you? Nausea is a normal side effect of antibiotics, you may also experience dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. It would be best to take the most recent one you've been instructed to take by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?
