small square pill with CC 59

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).

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...

Prilosec and Facial Swelling

Has anyone had any problem with face swelling with this drug? ## My husband has been taking prilosec for years and he always wakes up with a swollen face. I thought it was because he does not get enough sleep at night or any other time.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Prilosec as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, gas, and constipation.

Can I Split Nexium 40 Capsules In Half

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...
