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.

What is the difference in the omeprazole ec or dr 20mg capsules? ## Hello, Nikki! How are you? There is no difference, the EC and DR are both just different abbreviations that designate the medication as being time released. Omeprazole is classified by the FDA as a PPI and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with?

I got drugged on new years and it turned out to be meth. Now I Have this itchy rash all over my chest and back. What can I do to get rid of it. The meds the doctors have me are not working. Please help! I ## Hey, sorry to hear about what had happened. I hope the symptoms have started to subside since you last posted. One thought I had would be to look into Activated Charcoal, since it's available OTC and is medically recognized as a way to detox from an overdose of various types of prescription drugs. Ref: (Methamphetamine toxicity prevented by activated charcoal in a mouse model) Another idea for treating an itchy rash might be to use a few drops of lavender essential oil in a mixture of coconut oil throughout the day.

can have any taste with a feeding tube

Can you taste of what is going in your feeding the ## Hello, Tina! How are you? Not usually, because these tubes generally bypass the taste buds and sinuses, which are our most prominent features for tasting things. I'd imagine there may be some taste, if the person develops gas and belches a lot, or in the case of acid reflux, which may result in their tasting some bile. Is someone having a problem with such?

difference between caltrate and calcium
1 Reply RSS
If a patent is taking calcium is there a need to take caltrate? ## Hello, Lou! How are you? It depends on the amount of calcium they need and if they also need Vitamin D, since Caltrate contains both. If someone is low in calcium, their doctor may want them to take extra, or may want them to take something with vitamin D, since it is also very important to our body and our use of calcium. Occasionally, taking a lot may cause some constipation, as listed by the FDA and it could be dangerous to take more than what they doctor has advised. Is there anything else I can help with?

I was on omeprazole for about 3 years and it worked great. The last time I had it refilled it made my acid reflux worse and gave me nausea.

what does ic mean ? what does dr mean ? ## Hello, Petey! How are you? The IC means that your doctor wants you take it between meals, so you're not taking it when you first wake up on an empty stomach. The DR means delayed release, so it is a time release formulation of the medication. The FDA classifies Omeprazole as being a PPI that is most commonly used to treat or prevent heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?
