Heart Burn / Indigestion Overview

sompraz 40 vs nexpro 40

I want to know whether sompraz 40 and nexpro 40 are same medicine with different nomenclature. One of my family member was advised to take sompraz 40 along with other medicines. However, after biopsy report, the doctor has advised nexpro 40 in place of sompraz 40. Since the new advice was received by post, it is not possible to contact the consulting doctor. Please advice whether both the medicines are same and any one can be taken. ## Yes, they both contain the active ingredient Esomeprazole, which is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, gastritis and ulcers. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence and stomach pain. What did the biopsy sho...

Round yellow pill novo 40

What is a round yellow flat pill with "novo | 40" on one side and blank on the other? It was given to me for pain. ## Hi Chris, A 'D-shaped' light brown (may be perceived as yellow) pill marked with novo 40 is reportedly identified as famotidine 40 mg, made by Teva in Canada. For verification, the Drug Identification Number (DIN) is listed as 02022141. Famotidine is marketed for use in treating symptoms of GERD, stomach ulcers and heartburn, among other uses. If you think your pill may be different, I would probably recommend contacting Teva Canada directly just to get a second opinion since the shape or color may be changed by the manufacturer without any prior public announcement. Hope this helps! ## I found a yellow round pill with 40 on one side and novo on the other...

I have a small square pill with CC on one side and 59 on the other side. What is it used to treat? ## I've yet to come across the CC 59 imprint, but did however, locate square pills with CC 60 and CC 61 respectively (perhaps they may be related). A square white pill with CC 61 is reportedly a Famotidine 40mg tablet with a National Drug Code of 65862-0860 A square yellow pill with CC 60 is reportedly a Famotidine 20mg tablet with a National Drug Code of 65862-0859 I don't know what color your pill is, but I'm under the impression that it may be a 10mg Famotidine tablet. If you're able to, I'd consider taking it into a local pharmacy just to double check for that possibility. For verification, the pills mentioned above are manufactured by Aurobindo Pharma. Famotidine i...

small round and pink c 718 ## I want to identify a small pink round pill with the the imprint C 718. ## Equaline brand sells 20 mg famotidine (generic for Pepcid).
