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.

Can I Split Nexium 40 Capsules In Half
3 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...

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. Learn more Famotidine details here. These are a generic for Pepcid. Is there anything else I can help with? ## If you don't "believe" that's what they are then you shouldn't post a response here. You should post based on facts. ## Generic Pepcid. Find them at Walmart for $4 per 100. ## Of all the countless sites, I like your philosophy on privacy best.

Hell Identity a Circular Peach Pill
1 Reply RSS
It is a small, circular, peach colored pill that has the number 20 stamped on one side, and the other side is uninscribed. There are no scorings or other markings. The '20' appears to be stamped in Helvetica. When chipped with a razor, the peach color is a thin coating that rubs off easily. Any thoughts? ## This imprint is rather obscure, so I can't be completely sure… However, I have had a 20mg Famotidine tablet that matches this description. It is classified by the FDA as an antacid, a generic for Pepcid, that is used to treat or prevent heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness and flatulence. I'll keep looking to see if I can confirm this. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

Nexpro 20 Side Effects
7 Replies RSS
what are the uses and side effects of nexpro 20. Is it safe to take it for long duration ## Nexpro contains the active ingredient Esomeprazole, it is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to treat or prevent such conditions as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Normally, they are used for short-term treatment, about 12 to 16 weeks, because there also can be problems if you do not produce enough stomach acid to properly digest your food. Though, if the conditions have no been rectified, they can be used for longer periods, but only if your doctor approves such continued usage. Side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and flatulence. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ## acidity in stomach ## sir, what are t...

purple & gray pill
1 Reply RSS
I have been talking omeprazole 20mg purple and gray pill for the past 4 days. I been having stomach & lower back pain. I stopped taking it yesterday how long does the back and stomach pain last for? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. Omeprazole can sometimes cause those types of side effects, in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA, along with dizziness, headache and flatulence. However, if you have an acidity problem, then there is a chance that the pain could also be caused by it, rather than the medication. Thus, it would be best to have it checked out by your doctor to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with?
