Gastrointestinal Overview

The gastrointestinal tract, (GI tract, GIT, digestive tract, digestion tract, alimentary canal) is the tract from the mouth to the anus which includes all the organs of the digestive system in humans and other animals. Food taken in through the mouth is digested to extract nutrients and absorb energy, and the waste expelled as feces. The mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines are all part of the gastrointestinal tract. Gastrointestinal is an adjective meaning of or pertaining to the stomach...

Never in my life have I experienced this degree of discomfort, not to mention the danger of straining at the stool associated with acute coronary MI or stroke.While on Kapidex I felt profoundly depressed. This symptom ended with DC of drug. I am now dealing with a virulent constipation. Anyone experience similar symtoms?

Where To Purchase Paregoric

I've used Paregoric for 15 years and can't find it. Is there anywhere in the U.S. or other countries where this can be purchased? ## I have been on paregoric therapy for at least 18 years myself. (not to mention Sandostatin, Lomotil & Pamine) Have had occasions the past few years when it was not available, and now I am told the manufacturer has discontinued it. (royal pain) so Dr has now RXd tincture of opium - much less to take, but the stuff tastes like cat s**t (not that I ever tasted cat s**t) - I was hoping to find paregoric again, maybe from Canada - I'm still looking - let me know if ya wanna chat more & / or if you find a source. Would be nice to get out of the house again! Thanks bud - Jim ## Thanks for your reply. I called Canada, and they don't have it...

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...

I've been taking Flu-gone. Now my stomach is hurting and I'm experiencing a lot of constipation with a lot of flatulence. Are these known side effects?

Opium Tincture

I am a colon cancer survivor. Due to losing 9" of large intestines and all but 1" of rectum, I experience severe diarrhea and resulting horrendous rectal pain. My oncologist prescribed Tincture of Opium. As the name implies, this is serious medicine. I nursed my first prescription so it lasted four years (Feb. 2006 to Feb. 2010), second prescription three years (Feb. 2010 to June 2013). When I picked up third prescription and got home with it, it did not look the same and the name was different, "C-Morphine 10 MG/1ML SUSP AKA-Opium Tincture #118". So silly me, I thought it was a generic. The first time I had an episode of diarrhea and the accompanying rectal pain, I was bedridden for hours before the pain eased off to an endurable ache. My Tincture usually worked within ...

Bloating, gas & abdominal pain

My husband has these symptoms all the time. Had been told by a GI doctor to use Gas-X. I also bought baby colic drops. Nothing seems to help much anymore. Had endoscopy & colonoscopy, both normal. ## He may have abdominal adhesions. They do not appear on any type of scans as they are transparent. I had a series of colonoscopies over a 5 year period. They came up normal until the last one where the gastro dr could not get the scope through my intestines. At that point they determined the adhesions had entangled my intestines. Imagine the roots of a plant but made out of transparent material. At the least you might run an online search for abdominal adhesions. Good luck. ## Bet he has a fungal infection. Yeast overgrowth. Only thing he can do is eat a low fod map diet. ## y over the c...

1st Dose Reaction - Whiteness Around Mole

I started Cimzia 10 days ago. I had a reaction about day 4 as the medication was absorbing, with getting a big white ring around the 2 injection points, about 4 inches wide. So far I haven't felt anything else, or improvement to my RA, etc. I was able to find in another forum a thread about the white rings being the medication absorbing, so I blew it off. But I then noticed a mole on my chest wall has a lump, plus the white ring, only it was 1 inch across. My doctor is unconcerned. But, does it sound normal to have this reaction at a mole, not the injection sites? Thanks in advance. ## Cimzia has been known to cause many topical skin side effects, others may include rash, exfoliation, alopecia, and pruritus. If your doctor sees no reason to be concerned, then it likely is nothing to...
