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.

Does charcoal tablets interact with Zocor, Nexium, Zoloft or Flomax ? I have diverticulitis and wat to use it to help with the gas problem from high fiber diet. ## There are no problems listed between using it and your medications, but you should check with your doctor or pharmacist to be certain. ## Can I take charcoal tablets while I am taking Lipitor Antorvastatin ? ## You should be fine, there should not be any interactions between Lipitor and charcoal. Of course it is always a good idea to verify with your doc since they know your medical history too.

I would like to know if it is possible to overdose on omeprazole? ## Hello, Danni! How are you? It is possible to overdose on anything, if you take too much. But you'd have to take quite a bit of this. Realistically, before you hit a fatal overdose amount, you'd likely end up doing organ damage. Do you know someone that has taken a lot? ## Pls... tl me should i take this before taking food or after food.!?

Sore throat with Sandoz omeprazole
4 Replies RSS
Generic omeprazole by Dr Reddy and Mylan worked fine for me. Sandoz omeprazole gave me a chronic sore throat. ## we purchased 40 mg omeprazole from CVS pharmacy. the blue bottle had a Mylan logo and a microdisplay pill picture of blue/green tablet with 5222 on the label. inside the bottle was a tan/white capsule marked "OME 40". This is a Sandoz mark for omeprazole. These pills were ineffective and sore throat with esphogeal effects unchanged. later real 40 mg Mylan 5222 from Rite Aid worked perfectly. what are literature citations regarding CVS practice and quality for the Sandoz product. I feel tricked by what may be deceitful conduct ## Hello, Pearl and David! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you both had. However, CVS isn't required to provide you with a...

sandoz omeprazole compared to my previous manufacturer

I take 20mg twice a day for reflux/gerd, in my 3rd month and scheduled to reduce to once a day and then as needed by september. Originally my first 2 scripts were filled w white and yellow brand pill, my most recent was Sandoz brand - my pharmacy switched to this brand. Like some of the other posters I don't feel it is nearly as effective, my reflux is returning, and more frequently. I had zero problems before now it's like I am 10-15 days into my treatment. Also had a very strange oral reaction, maybe unrelated about 4-5 days after changing to this brand. But that med change is the only dietary or otherwise change I have made. Any insight appreciated ## Hello, Dave! How are you? What was the oral reaction you had? What are the markings on the pill you currently have? That will ...

I want to know what this cream is for and if there is any side effects ## Hi Lisa, Do you happen to know the full drug names that correspond to each abbreviation? There are so many possible names that come up that I wouldn't want to risk steering you in the wrong direction. Prilosec, Gabapentin, Fluoxetine, and Levofloxacin (or) Levothyroxine are just a few names that come to mind, but I'm not sure if these would all be compounded together in a cream. Please post back if you have any other specific details regarding their actual names and then I can help you take it from there as far as indications and side effects are concerned.

Round, nickel sized green color with RP letter stamped and 103 on it that is found in someone's clothes in the dryer of a family's member. Needs to identify to get an intervention as soon as possible if it is serious drug being used. Thank you. ## I can't find a listing for a tablet with this marking in any of our resources. Did this happen in the U.S.?

I'm so relieved!!!!! Thanks everyone for your help. ## That quick to jump to an intervention! Wow ## You dumb imbesil !!!! They are tums! ## Tums..... the are tropical flavor 1000mg TUMS!! ## Hi.
