Gastrointestinal Overview

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...

L-Doper

What is the use of L-Doper? ## I want to know information about the drug which is prescribed to me. ## L-Doper contains Loperamide, which is a drug used to treat loose motions. ## My dog ate those any problem will she face She ate l dofer capsules 2 of them ## This medication is listed as containing the active ingredient Loperamide, which is most commonly used to treat, or prevent diarrhea. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. It can be used in dogs, but you should only do so, under veterinary advice. Too much could cause abdominal pain, constipation, stomach pain, and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does it also contain dyclopin?

Tryptomer 10 mg for stomach burning

I took tryptomer 10 mg in the night after food as per my doctor who prescribed it along with other medicines for my severe stomach burning sensation. I am happy to say that I did not get up at 2 am early in the morning as usual but got up at 7.30 am in the morning. But I am feeling drowsy today throughout the day and am not able to do my routine work. I would like to find out whether there is any lesser dose available in the market or if I have to use half of the tablet? Please suggest the remedy.

Impacted Colon CT Scan - How to treat

I had a CT scan to see if I had a hernia. It showed an "impacted colon" but I was never referred to anyone. I had an "incomplete cleanse" for my colonoscopy, and it seems, that would be why. The GI place was told, and said, "we can't comment on that"? ## You can learn more abotu it on MedLine Plus in their article on it, it also included the usual treatment information. If the GI place only did your colonoscopy, and you are not a regular patient, they wouldn't comment, since they haven't seen the test reports and don't treat you as a regular patient. Do you take any medications regularly? ## My CT SCAN was available for them to see in their patient PORTAL. Plus, my primary care doctor had the CT SCAN since December 2018 and he ordered the colonosc...

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 ...
