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...

nexium40 mg and shelcal 500mg
I am a 51 year old woman and have been suffering from reflux and have been taking nexium 40 for many years. My GP recently asked me to take calcium to improve bone health. Can you advise if there are any issues taking these together? ## Hello, Suzanne! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed, but you should always double check such information. The Shelcal is a calcium supplement, so it may cause some constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Nothing more. Thanks for your response. ## I was diagnosed 6 years ago with two stomach ulcers which were the non bacterial kind. My doc put me on Nexium and I became "addicted". I couldn't go 2 days without the pill even long after the ulcers had healed. My health deteriorated. I gained weight....

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.

L194 is not Famotidine

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:
