Loose Motion Control Tablet
49 Replies RSS
I am experiencing loose stools 3-4 times in a day. Please advise. ## Have you seen a doctor to get to the root of what is causing your problem? There many different things that can cause you to have frequent bowel movements and the best solution is usually getting to the root of that and correcting the problem. It could be something you are eating, another medication you are taking or any one of several other options. I am not sure what country you are in, so I don't know what's available to you, but in the U.S. we can purchase Loperamide over the counter for assistance with such problems.

Why is the package insert ABSOLUTELY SILENT on WHEN the Altosec 20 is to be taken? ## Hello, Oubaas 74! How are you? Because there is really no specific time of day that it must be taken, other than before a meal. It is classified by the U.S. FDA as a proton pump inhibitor that helps reduce the amount of acid produced by your stomach to help treat or prevent conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, gastritis and ulcers. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## From:- Oubaas 74. Thank you for your reply, this is the 1st Time that anyone has told me to take "Altosec 20mg" BEFORE a meal. Please note that the package insert is SILENT on this advice!!! Since my Acid Reflux problem (???) is at ni...

razo d tablet

I am a GERD patient, I am advised to take Razo D capsule by doctor, but this capsule is giving only temporary relief, is there any medication to cure Acid Reflux permanently? ## Hi, Ginnela! Sorry about the problem that you're having. However a cure, per se, is really a matter of time. By the time you're feeling the results of the reflux, that means some damage has been done and it has to heal, which is why the medication seems to only provide temporary relief. You also need to watch what you eat for awhile, such as staying away from alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods, because all of those can raise the level of acid that your stomach produces. Learn more Rabeprazole details here and you can learn more Domperidone details here. And the reason I said "cure, per se" is beca...

I have tried many kinds of Vitamins, multivits however none of them seemed to help me at all.

Is it better in the morning, afternoon of nithg before bed. ## Hi Sal, The dosing instructions for this medication state the following: "Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) comes as a delayed-release (long-acting) capsule to take by mouth. It is usually taken once a day. Dexlansoprazole may be taken with or without food, but it may provide more relief from after-meal symptoms if it is taken before a meal.

I have broken out in a rash around my neck, shoulders, arms and legs really bad. Didn't know what was the cause. Went to dr. he said it looked like a inward reaction and nothing topical. Well, I had started taking Dexilant (Kapidex) just about the time I broke out. My question is ....those of you who have experienced this? How long did the rash last after you stopped taken it? ## So glad to know I am not alone. I started Delixant/Kapidex 3 weeks ago.After about a week I had a rash on my hands and arms. I continued taking the medicine because I was not fully convinced it was the culprit. After another week my itchy red rash had spread from arms to the rest of my body.

Long-term usage!!
2 Replies RSS
I have been on dexilant now for 3 months and for me it's been good. My concern is of course the long-term effect with this medication as it seems this medication is used for short-term up to 6 months from what I have read. Why is that?? My wife has been on another proton pill for like 15 years now but this one seems different. Can you actually take this one forever? What's the alternative if you're not able due to the long-term issues? This medication works for me but I'm a little nervous if I'm not able to take this one long term. Thanks for taking the time to read my post. ## Hello, Bert! How are you? Actually, all of them increase the risk of hip fractures, with long-term use, especially in the elderly, according to the NIH. This applies to all PPIs. Other side ef...

Side Effect Mecobalamin 500mcg
8 Replies RSS
I am taking mecobalamin 3 times a day, are there any side effects later? thanks ## Side effects of Mecobalamin (Methylcobalamine) can include any of the following: Gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions including anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. Rashes may also occur sometime. This is definitely the better, non synthetic version of Vitamin B12. So I think if you keep following the dosage instructions on the package you shouldn't experience any (maybe very little) side effects as your body assimilates and uses this nutrient over a long period of time. If you feel like the dose is too high for any reason, just cut back on a dose and work your way up over time. You can view more information about this pill by following the link below... Please post back if you have any other general qu...
