cherifer vitamins affect stomach

I neeed answers please for the stomach discomfort after intaking cherifer capsul with zinc ## i also experience stomach ache after drinking cherifer pgm :( twice ko palang sya nainom parehas na sumakit tyan ko. tinake ko sya after meal. ittry ko sya itake before meal baka di na sumakit tyan ko. ## Wag e pag sasabay ang cherifer sa food na may iron, especially yung cherifer with zinc. Chemical reaction of zinc and iron results to upset stomach. Eat foods with iron such as milk after 2-3 hkurs you take cherifer. ## Due to the potency, the NIH warns that this medication may cause some nausea as a side effect, in some people that take it. It may also cause constipation and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## my tummy aches after i take cherifer pgm with zinc. is it okay...

sompraz 40 vs nexpro 40

I want to know whether sompraz 40 and nexpro 40 are same medicine with different nomenclature. One of my family member was advised to take sompraz 40 along with other medicines. However, after biopsy report, the doctor has advised nexpro 40 in place of sompraz 40. Since the new advice was received by post, it is not possible to contact the consulting doctor. Please advice whether both the medicines are same and any one can be taken. ## Yes, they both contain the active ingredient Esomeprazole, which is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, gastritis and ulcers. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence and stomach pain. What did the biopsy sho...

Round yellow pill novo 40

What is a round yellow flat pill with "novo | 40" on one side and blank on the other? It was given to me for pain. ## Hi Chris, A 'D-shaped' light brown (may be perceived as yellow) pill marked with novo 40 is reportedly identified as famotidine 40 mg, made by Teva in Canada. For verification, the Drug Identification Number (DIN) is listed as 02022141. Famotidine is marketed for use in treating symptoms of GERD, stomach ulcers and heartburn, among other uses. If you think your pill may be different, I would probably recommend contacting Teva Canada directly just to get a second opinion since the shape or color may be changed by the manufacturer without any prior public announcement. Hope this helps! ## I found a yellow round pill with 40 on one side and novo on the other...

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). A square white pill with CC 61 is reportedly a Famotidine 40mg tablet with a National Drug Code of 65862-0860 A square yellow pill with CC 60 is reportedly a Famotidine 20mg tablet with a National Drug Code of 65862-0859 I don't know what color your pill is, but I'm under the impression that it may be a 10mg Famotidine tablet. 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...

pill pink round c718

small round and pink c 718 ## I want to identify a small pink round pill with the the imprint C 718. ## Equaline brand sells 20 mg famotidine (generic for Pepcid). The pills are small, peach-orange-pink, circular, and have a C on the top line, and 718 on the bottom. ## Thank you, javamike. There have also been several other people that have identified these as being 20mg Famotidine tablets, a generic for Pepcid.

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...

Mylan 6150 vs Delayed Release Variety

I had been taking the tan and beige prescription formula 20mg delayed release version of Omeprazole to treat my acid reflux for several months with no adverse effects. When I refilled the prescription this time, the pharmacy gave me the Mylan 6150, and after 3 days on it I developed a scary heart arrhythmia, so I stopped it immediately. The pharmacist argues that it is exactly the same medication; they just changed generic providers. Is this true? ## Hello, Lynn! How are you? Mylan Pharmaceuticals does list it as containing 20mgs of Omeprazole, but this is a regular release formulation, not a time released one, which might explain why you suddenly experienced side effects from taking it. The FDA does list bradycardia, tachycardia, palpitations, and hypertension as all being possible sid...
