Aspilets 80mg too strong for the stomach
1 Reply RSS
I took two tablets, one at a time, 4 hrs a part for pain killer. I had some acidic food on that day and also on following day (pickles). I got gastric symptom on the third day, It seems very strong for someones. Not for pain killer, paracetamol better of aspirin PH8 is much better. ## Between the Aspirin and the foods you ate, it is normal that you would experience some gastric symptoms, according to NIH reports. All of those are acidic and can be very harsh on your stomach. Has there been any change, yet? Are you on any other medications? Have you considered altering your diet to avoid these acidic foods?

2 Replies RSS
Can I give my 10 year old son a Flustat capsule to drink? ## Hello, Sheugnet! How are you? Flu-stat is listed as containing Paracetamol, Chlorpheniramine, Phenylephrine, Vitamin C and Caffeine. That said no, the caffeine can be dangerous for children and this isn't dosed for children that young. It could make him sick and cause a toxic overdose. Its typical side effects, as listed by the U.S. FDA may include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and nervousness. Please consult his doctor, before giving him any medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I weigh 75kg, 27 year old male, I accidentally (misread) and took 3 flustat pills at once, am I in any danger?

bioflu and alaxan fr
2 Replies RSS
I take alaxan at 7pm because my body is in pain.. But then i realized its because i have a flu.. So i decided to take bioflu at 12am. Is it ok? ## Hi yes that's perfectly fine. Alaxan is paracetamol and Ibuprofen - Bioflu contains Paracetamol as well used to treat pain and fever and is known to be generally safe even for pregnant women. ## I have done this in the past and I'm still alive! I recently had my annual physical and my results are good. I'm 40. If body ache calls for relief and Alaxan will provide just that, then that's fine. It's not like you're popping one pill after another. And the fact that there's a 5hr interval was good enough, if your symptoms call for it. Often, with health issues you need to weigh the pros and cons as you listen to your bo...
