Loose Motion Control Tablet
91 Replies RSS Share
I am experiencing loose stools 3-4 times in a day. Please advise. ## Have you seen a doctor to get to the root of what is causing your problem? There many different things that can cause you to have frequent bowel movements and the best solution is usually getting to the root of that and correcting the problem. It could be something you are eating, another medication you are taking or any one of several other options. I am not sure what country you are in, so I don't know what's available to you, but in the U.S. we can purchase Loperamide over the counter for assistance with such problems.

Razo D tablet information

I am a GERD patient and I am advised to take Razo D capsule by my doctor, but this capsule is giving only temporary relief. Is there any medication to cure Acid Reflux permanently? ## Hi, Ginnela! Sorry about the problem that you're having. However a cure, per se, is really a matter of time. By the time you're feeling the results of the reflux, that means some damage has been done and it has to heal, which is why the medication seems to only provide temporary relief. You also need to watch what you eat for awhile, such as staying away from alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods, because all of those can raise the level of acid that your stomach produces. Learn more Rabeprazole details here and you can learn more Domperidone details here. And the reason I said "cure, per se" i...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) removal

What happens after surgery when you have a GI stromal tumor (GIST) removed from your stomach? I am wondering about the recovery period and how long it takes to recover? I have one 2 inches in my stomach and need surgery. It's not cancer but still should come out. I wonder why? Help, someone talk to me. ## Are you sure its not cancer? Have they done a biopsy? I was told that i had one 7in by 4in. After removal i was put on Gleevac (Oral Chemo Pill) 400 mg for a year and a half. Then found out I had tumors in liver. They changed my meds to 800mg Gleevac. It is supposed to reduce the growth of the tumors. Now, they have me on Sutent because my body got used to the Gleevac. ## Sorry to hear this, will pray for you.This cancer stuff can be serious, have they considered radiation? Sam ## ...

Best anti-inflammatory medication for intestinal pain
2 Replies RSS Share
What are the best anti-inflammatories that work on intestinal pain? Please list the brand names of these medications and rate them according to their efficacy (effectiveness). ## Unfortunately the only way to find out what works best for you and what doesn't is through the process of trial and error and working with your doctor. There may be meds that are stronger or more effective than others in eliminating the pain, but if it causes too many side effects then what good will it do in the long run? Trial and error will help you narrow down your preferences. NSAID's (aspirin, ibuprofen, diclofenac, naproxen, motrin, indomethacin), opiates/opioids, muscle relaxers, anxiety medication, natural alternatives (turmeric / kratom / CBD / THC), probiotics, digestive enzymes, etc, have al...

Hi I have been suffering from anxiety attacks for the past year now my Dr gave me 0.50mg alzam which I took 1 at night to calm me as I get heart pulpitations esp at night when I have to go sleep.

White oval tablet with OMI imprint and scored on the other side
1 Reply RSS Share
I have a white oval-shaped tablet. One side has an imprint of "IMO" and the other side is scored in the middle. Is it a pain pill? ## Hi Janiece, I located a white oval pill that has IMO on one side and scored on the back with the numbers 2 | 125 on each side of the scoreline. I realize your description doesn't have numbers, but part of me suspects whether this might be related based on the striking resemblance I'm seeing. If it's of any help, the pill I'm describing is reportedly identified as Imodium advanced (Loperamide 2 mg / Simethicone 125 mg); used for treating diarrhea. For verification, the manufacturer/distributor is listed as McNeil Consumer Healthcare and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 00045-0202. Does anyone else have thoughts to add?

Side Effect Mecobalamin 500mcg
10 Replies RSS Share
I am taking mecobalamin 3 times a day, are there any side effects later? thanks ## Side effects of Mecobalamin (Methylcobalamine) can include any of the following: Gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions including anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. Rashes may also occur sometime. This is definitely the better, non synthetic version of Vitamin B12. So I think if you keep following the dosage instructions on the package you shouldn't experience any (maybe very little) side effects as your body assimilates and uses this nutrient over a long period of time. If you feel like the dose is too high for any reason, just cut back on a dose and work your way up over time. You can view more information about this pill by following the link below... Please post back if you have any other general qu...

Can't relax in any position but on stomach without pain.
1 Reply RSS Share
I cannot lay in any position besides on my stomach, and I also cannot sit in a reclined position for even a few seconds without a horrible reaction. If I move into any of these positions I get instant gas, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, muscle spasms, pain in my hands and feet, confusion and fatigue. I also have developed many food allergies in the last 4-5 years. I cannot tolerate any amount of sugar, alcohol, or yeasts, and I seem to have constant sinus infections. My holistic doctor believes I have Lyme and co-infections, but I am trying to see if there could be a gastro-intestinal explanation for these strange symptoms that seem to be trigured by resting positions. ## I understand why some people try to use holistic medications and treatments, but you do need to be aware that t...

Looking for details about this tablet. ## I have a bottle from Mexico (Dipera 2 mg) I do not remember what it is for. Thanks, Gloria ## Dipera is for Diarhea. It has always worked great for us. We got a bottle in Mexico in 2007 and it is still working really good, in fact hubby took one today and an hour later, diarhea was gone. I have shared with family and friends and so far, no one has had any problems. Such a tiny little pill but works so good. ## Dipera contains the active ingredient Loperamide, which is used to treat, or prevent diarrhea. In the U.S. it is available under the brand name Imodium, and the generic. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

crohnes & moatofen
4 Replies RSS Share
I had been Rx' motofen in the early 90's and took it for 20 yr.'s or more & when I could no longer find it did not notice withdrawal symptoms. I desperately need it. Have crohnes and have suffered chronic diarrhea sense I was 26, now 75. Its the only medication that works for me & believe me I've tried them all. ## I have no follow-up regarding motofen. Nobody (Dr's) not interested in talking about it or crohnes. I have heard off & on that motofen will be back with no results or any indication of another medication to take its place. I do feel that if it does come back it will be so expensive that we e cannot afford it and the insurance companies will not honor it. So on with the saga. Will appreciate any insight and/or feedback.
