whenever I eat, I feel like my stomach is full and to go for bowel imm after eating. Recently I started getting extremely stinky burps, vomiting and diarrhea (All smells the same) especially when i eat meat.

activated charcoal tablets
20 Replies RSS
what is it used for and how safe is it. and what other medicine you should not use with it. ## It is supposedly a very safe medicine to take. Activated charcoal is a traditional remedy for treating excess stomach and intestinal gas. It works by attracting excess gas in the stomach and bowels, which binds to the surface of the charcoal powder. This relieves the discomfort caused by excess gas (flatulence), wind, indigestion and heartburn. The charcoal is not absorbed from the gut. Activated charcoal is also used in hospital emergency departments to treat poisoning. However, when used in this way, activated charcoal is given in much larger doses than those contained in this preparation. You should never attempt to treat poisoning yourself with this preparation. Cases of poisoning should a...

Oxy fast? with the set up above with the RIGHT definition of the Pill in question is Great! It gets kind of confusing when right below it there is the wrong answer. The correct answer is apparent when thoroughly looked over. Could we try to make it more user friendly with maybe the correct answer is seperate catagory and then in labeled field "comonly mis-identified as" and proceed with the pills misconceptions to anaddict ## Hello, Diz zi!

Is there a generic: any different from prilocec, what does it do ## Omeprazole is the generic for Prilosec and it's sold over the counter, no script needed. It is a proton pump inhibitor that blocks gastric acid secretions--acid reflux or GERD. ## Some insurances will cover it though so you should always have the doctor write the scripts for any over the counter medications and the pharmacy will try to put it thru your insurance. Mine covers omeprazole. my Zyrtec . Ibuprofen so if you dont try every med how will you know right

Hi, I took 20 mg Omeprazole, 10 mg Atorvastatin, 25 mg Hydrochlorot, and 5 mg Amlodopine at about 4:00. Then at about 6:30 I forgot I took them and I took all 4 of them again!
