Sick to stomach, hard to eat

My 93 year old father has a stomach problem when eating and feels bad all the time. Help please so he can eat. My father is getting so thin. Please help him enjoy some food. Is there anything you can recommend? ## Hi Denise, Sorry to hear about your father's stomach problem. How long has he been dealing with this? Has he been diagnosed with anything such as IBS or Crohn's disease, or does it simply appear to be indigestion? If so, has he tried taking anything yet to help with his condition? A few ideas that come to mind are digestive enzymes, probiotics, prebiotics, senna leaf tea, & medical cannabis. Please post back with any additional information so that I or others can be of more assistance.

Insurance won't cover Dexilant

After roughly 6 years of taking Dexilant 60mg my insurance will no longer cover it. Are there any OTC medications I can use to take its place? Keep in mind Dexilant is the only one that's worked thus far. ## I take lansoprazole 30mg each day. works great. it is covered by my drug company insurance. ## Regarding Dexilent, try Canada Drugs.

They will explain the tightly controlled supply chain, and where they obtain their supply. Example: My husband saves $500.00 on Epi Pen. ## What other medications have you tried? There are several available over the counter, or as generics, that are much cheaper, but given your vague post, it is har...

White round tablet R P 111

It is round and white with RP at the top and on the bottom part 111 and on the back just a line going across and it's big and thick. I was told it was a generic over counter pain relief pill made by the company "Dr choice". ## I located a round pink tablet with RP on the top and 111 on the bottom of one side & just a score line on the back of the pill. The issue is that my finding is pink and your description is white. Name: Gas Relief RS (simethicone) Dosage: 80mg Imprint: RP 111 Shape: Round Color: Pink Labeler: CVS Pharmacy, Inc. My only guess is that by "pain relief", it meant "pain caused by excess gas", but if in doubt I would still encourage you to bring this pill you have into your local pharmacy for a second opinion. Hope this helps!
