Hi Unlucky - it sounds like you're experiencing a side effect from this medication. The question is ... does the benefit from this medication outweight the side effects ? If you find it worse than your original condition then I would definitely see if your doctor can switch you to something else. Let me know how it goes ...

I am taking quadtab now and fortunately im on the tritab. I take this medicine 3 pcs 1 hr before breakfast. I am healing and gained weight. One side effect that I experienced is that I fel nausea after I take it and palpitations. I asked my doctor and he said it is just normal cause my stomach is adjusting so I am experiencing a form of dispepsia. He gave me anti reflux and that solved the problem

Ask for anti reflux. I felt that too. Vomiting will instantly solve the problem but the medicine will just come out....

The doctor said it is a good thing that our urine turns orange or red its an indication that the system accepted the medicine taht is why the meds are red to see if the meds are dissolved

yes, that's completely normal. the coloration is due to the quadtab's contents.

Hi! I've been using this med for about 4 months. I already get used to its side effects and sometimes I don't mind it anymore except for convulsion. This past few months, I noticed that I gained weight, Does quadtab triggers to gain our weight????

I'm confused, my doctor prescribed me to take 4 times a day but most people are taking it once a day 1 hr before breakfast.
