For how long can you use daflon 500 mg

I have been using daflon 500 mg since March 25th 4 tablets twice a daily to cure hemorrhoids and I am feeling much better now but it seems I should continue using this medicine for complete cure. I am wondering for how long I should use it. Thanks for your reply ## Hello, I am working on Sucralfate.

Side Effects of Lansoprazole by Sandoz

How long do the side effects (such as vomiting) last? My husband just started taking this drug and is feeling sick. ## Typically, according to the U.S. FDA, side effects may last about 4 to 5 weeks, until one becomes used to the medication. He may also experience dizziness, headache stomach pain, and flatulence. How is he feeling, now? Has there been any change? Is he on any other medications? ## After only one tablet of Lansoprazole, within a half hour I experienced serious anaphylaxis. It took years for me to find out that Polyethylene Glycol which it contains is a laxative for someone with malabsorption problems; a definite no no. I check every medication for it now. Even Pfizer and Moderna vaccines contain it, so doctors wouldn't give me those. I had Astrazeneca without any prob...

Otherwise decent health overall. Hello to anyone who thinks they can help!! I have been on 30mg Lansoprazole for the last 3-4 years (prescribed) because I had my gallbladder removed in 2007 and had a slew of stomach issues for the first 5 or so years since the surgery, most of which was caused by increased acid. Lans was a godsend drug at first, but over time I started noticing that it seemed to sometimes make me feel weird or give me an upset stomach. Over the last few months I have really been improving my diet and eating better and noticed I was getting less and less acid and indigestion. Because my ins...
