Lafaxid-10 Tablets Uses

Dear Sir, I am using Lafaxid-10 tablets (Lafutidine). Can you advice me what is the purpose of this medication. I have heart burn and contacted a gastrology specialist. He recommended taking Sompraz. I took it for 2 months. Last week I saw the doctor for my heart burn as well as burning in my stomach. I took this medicine after I had an endoscopy and am wondering what kind of foods I should be eating. Also can I take another tablet if I'm still breastfeeding my son? ## Lafutidine (INN) is a second generation histamine H2 receptor antagonist having multimodal mechanism of action and used to treat gastrointestinal disorders.

How to use Erceflora Bacillus Clausii

My 4 month old baby has diarrhea. The pediatrician has prescribed to take Erceflora 1 vial. What does that mean? Is this the whole vial at once? ## Hi Maine, sorry to hear about that, I know how nerve wracking it can be when a child at that young of an age has diarrhea. To answer your question, each vial should be a 5ml suspension. If that is the case then I am seeing a standard dose of 1-2 vials every 3-4 hours mixed in with another liquid such as milk, formula, or water. If you are still breastfeeding your baby you can mix it in with expelled breast milk. So yeah, 1 whole vial per dose is what is indicated. Is that in line with the doctor's instructions? There should be a label, printout, or packaging that came with the prescription. All in all Erceflora is a probiotic medicine wh...

Getting Alevian Duo over the counter

I’m seeking to purchase a product sold over the counter in Mexico which is called "Alevian Duo" or, if not sold in the USA, a product which has the same ingredients sold by a different name in the USA. ## Hmmm, if you aren't able to get it directly from Mexico, try searching for other products domestically by active ingredient: Looks like it contains Pinaverium Bromide and Dimethcone. Not sure what contains the exact same combination. "Pinaverium bromide was first registered in 1975 by Solvay Pharmaceuticals (now a division of Abbott Laboratories), and marketed globally using the brand names Dicetel and Eldicet. Generic pinaverium is available in South Korea under a trade name of Disten[1] and in Argentina as Nulite." - Wikipedia

Hi, I would like to know if anyone here who has Reflux / GERD / LPR tried Iberet Folic 500 b4? How does it feels after taking it? Does it induce the GeRD?

dexilant concerns

I was given a weeks sample and then a prescription for 60mg. The Dr. made a mistake on the prescription and put down 2xdaily which i fortunately caught before leaving the store. My concern is, a few days into the sample i developed a worsened dry cough, then caught what i thought was the flu, symptoms being respiratory, fever, severe aches in either joint or muscle. Now I am wondering if these are simply some side effects, i have read online it may well be. I am looking to find an alternative with less flu like side effects, any suggestions? thanx ## How are you feeling, now? Dexilant contains the active ingredient Dexslanzoprazole, it is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to help treat conditions, such as GERD, ulcers, and ga...
