Proton pump inhibitors

Can someone enlighten me, please? I take the following medicines: Eltroxin, Cardicor, Zartan, Amloc, Puresis, Allopurinol, Plenish K, Ultimag, Estro-pause, Adco-Dol (for migraines. Allergic to everything else, also those supposed to be preventative.) My concern is the Allopurinol. I have read somewhere that it may cause sudden death. Because of the Puresis I have no alternative, as nothing I do dietwise, do anything to bring down the uric acid count. Please advise me, as I am with my back to the wall. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Also information concerning the negatives of proton pump inhibitors. Thank you ever so much. ## I’m 74 years old and had gout cause by excess Utica acid for 10 years until I read on the internet the “CHERRY REPORT “. I now take...

Rumoquin NF Mexican

Rumoquin N F Diclofenaco sódico 75mg Metocarbanol 200mg Dexametasona .75mg Excipiente cbp 1 tablet By Marcel Laboratories I suffer from gout so when I get an attack I take one, also heard is good for arthritis, and and of course Rheumatic diseases. My doctor said that is a drug cocktail and there is nothing like that in one pill. Take it if necessary, it won't cure any disease, it only kills and relaxes the pain/area affected. It really works ! ## The ingredients are… Diclofenac, which is classified by the FDA as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. Methocarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant and Dexamethasone, which is a steroid class medication. Thus, one shouldn't take it without their doctor's approval, because there are some risks associated with it and it may be...

Allopurinol gluten free?

Is Allopurinol mfg by qualitest gluten free? ## Hi edb, From what I could gather, Allopurinol from Qualitest contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose and sodium starch glycolate. Unfortunately, "sodium starch glycolate" is heavily regarded as a questionable substance for those with a gluten intolerance; since it is derived from starch. So I personally wouldn't recommend taking it without your doctor's prior consensus. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Allopurinol Details I hope this helps! ## I got a new script of Allopurinol 300mg by Accord and need to know if it's gluten free? I have been taking another manufacturer's version for years and had no ...

Allopurinol causing constipation

I've been on Allopurinol 300mg once a day since early 90's, with no side effects at all. I have not had a kidney stone since I've been on the Medication. Two weeks ago I refilled my prescription and the medication that I usually get is from Ingenus. Much too my surprise I got Accord instead, from my Walgreens Pharmacy and after a few days I noticed that I was getting constipated. Ingenus has discontinued Allopurinol. I know that side effects from Allopurinol never mention constipation and I was wondring if the cause could be the fillers and binding agents. Have anybody run into constipation with Allopurinol? What manufacturer would be a better alternative to Accord for thiis drug. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Sorry to hear about your situation. According to NIH,...
