Nexium 40 Mg Equivilents
1 Reply RSS
Is Pantoprazole sod dr 40 mg the same drug as Nexium 40 mg? My husband was given Nexium samples by the doctor but was prescribed the Pantoprazole. Thank you ## Hi Barb, From what I could gather, they appear to be completely different drugs that are used for similar purposes. My guess is that the doctor wanted him to sample the Nexium to see if he responded better to one or the other. Nexium contains the active ingredient Esomeprazole & Pantoprazole happens to be the active ingredient in and of itself; but both are classified as proton pump inhibitors. I hope this info helps to shed some light on the subject! ...

3 Replies RSS
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.... ...

Can I Split Nexium 40 Capsules In Half
4 Replies RSS
My doctor changed my Nexium prescription from 40 mg to 20 mg. Can I separate the pills I have in half so I don't waste what I have? ## No, you can't safely split a capsule, because there is no way to ensure that you are evenly splitting the amount of the medication that is inside them. Learn more Nexium details here. Why did your doctor lower the dosage? Unless there was some reason for doing so, there is likely little harm in finishing up what you have of the higher one and then moving to the lower dosage, since this is just a proton pump inhibitor that reduces the amount of acid your stomach produces. ## I just tried Nexium 24 (20 mg pills), and it worked great at stopping my heartburn, which I get every day and sometimes multiple times/day, but, it gave me bad cramps and diar... ...

1 Reply RSS
I've been taking zerodal for 5 days and started taking beralgin yesterday as well as beralgin. Does all these three bring side effects of swollen mouth and finger tips and feet ## Before I cover any of these medications, it is important that you know that swelling in the mouth is not a side effect, that can be a sign of a serious allergic reaction and it is very important that you contact your doctor immediately! Zerodol contains the active ingredients Aceclofenac and Paracetamol, it is used to treat pain and swelling. The common side effects from it can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach irritation. Baralgan contains the active ingredient Analgin or Metimizole, this is another pain reliever. It is another nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, just like the Aceclofenac in... ...

The side effects can include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

Nexium And Calcium Magnesium Vitamin D Supplements Taken With Meloxicam
3 Replies RSS
I now am taking nexium 45 minutes before my first meal of the day. At the next meal I take a calcium/vit D/magnesium supplement. When can I take meloxican for inflammation in my sacroiliac joint and so that mobic will not interfere with the benefits of the supplement and nexium. ## Hello, My research states that Meloxicam can be administered without regard to timing of meals or accompanying administration of antacids. I'm not quite sure if this would work the same when it comes to vitamins- but I believe you would be ok to take the Meloxicam about 30 min- 1 hour after you take the vitamins. If you experience any changes in the effectiveness of your vitamins while taking the Meloxicam, it would be a good idea to contact your physician. You can learn more about this drug on the page f... ...

Thank You so much and God Bless You & Yours, Johnny ## Well, there are several on this list that can cause nausea and vomiting, such as the Codeine, Acetaminophen and the Simvastatin. Plus, the more you take, especially all at once, the worse the possible side effects are going to be. Have you tried spacing them out more? Or perhaps asking your doctor for something to help prevent the nausea and vomiting? ...
