simethicone 125mg

can i give my 11 yr old daughter 125mg she is complaining of gas and stomach pains, belchilg and passing gas continioully? ## Hello, Dee! How are you? The usual dose for children is 40mgs given 4 times a day, so it would be best to pick up the pediatric version, to avoid overdose, and make sure that's it okay with her pediatrician. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly include dizziness and headache. What type of foods does she eat? According to the NIH, they may be what's causing the problem. It could also occur if she drinks a lot of soda. Gulping her food, or beverages can also cause someone to swallow a lot of air, which could cause this, so she may need to eat and drink slower.

papain and simethicone

Is there any interaction between papaya papain with simethicone? ## Hello, Belle! How are you? I'm sorry, but supplements are not evaluated for possible interactions with medications. Have you tried checking with your pharmacist? They may know more. But since Papaya is really just fruit, I'd think there shouldn't be any problem. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Simethicone directions say limit to 2-4 per 24 hours which is dependent on strength per dosage. Why have this limit if it is totally safe?

What kind of pill is that. I just received it and not sure what to do with it ## Hi James, I haven't located an exact match to your pill yet, but did come close enough to offer a suggestion as to what it may be or who might make it...

One of the companies who manufacturers these is called GlaxoSmithKline.

simethicone overdose

is this possible? I have read other forums where people said it isn't so much a problem of how much a person takes, but rather, why you are taking so much. any feedback much appreciated. thanks! ## Simethicone is used to treat the symptoms of gas such as uncomfortable or painful pressure, fullness, and bloating. Judging from the drugs indications, I don't think anyone would have a reason to go overboard on taking too much. I mean, once the gas and bloating subsides, there is really no reason to take more than you need. Side effect information I found states the following: When taken as directed, simethicone usually has no side effects. Also, the link below offers additional information on how this medication should be used and for what purpose: Furthermore, one can learn overtim...

mexico simplex

Am wanting to get Simplex. This really helped me with my anxiety! how can I find this? ## Hi Jannova, I haven't come across any medications by the name of Simplex that are said to help with anxiety. The closest match I found is a product called "Sab Simplex" (Simethicone); which is used as an anti-foaming agent to reduce bloating or discomfort caused by excess gas in the stomach & bowels. Do you have any other details about the 'Simplex' that you're referring to? Perhaps you may be thinking of a different medication altogether if it's something that can only be bought in Mexico. I hope this helps!

dysflatyl

a-007 ## I'm not 100% sure what was being asked here, so I think I'll just cover both of the options that I found… Disflatyl is a medication that's used to help treat or prevent gas, it contains Dimethicone in some countries and Simethicone in others, depending on which is more readily available. Learn more Simethicone details here. However, a tablet available in the U.S. by prescription with an A-007 5 marking is a 5mg Abilify tablet, it is an atypical antipsychotic that's most commonly used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. Learn more Abilify details here. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and somnolence. Is there anything else I can help with?

Blue Round Pill 44 underline 132

round blue pill with the number 44 then its underlined and then the number 132 44_ 132 ## Hi Barry, The only pill I can locate that relates to the description you provided is Simethicone 80 mg. The imprint on this pill is 44 137, however I couldn't find an image of the pill itself, so the placement of these numbers is a mystery to me. The brand "Gas-ex" contains Simethicone and I have heard from a pharmacist that some OTC pills begin with the numbers 44 and end with a 3 digit number so it is possible that this could be similar to the pill you have. I hope this helps!

Round White Pill With 610 On One Side Of It

does,any one knows what white pill with s 610 on it,what is it for????? maybe gas pill????? ## I can't find a listing for this in any of the U.S. prescription drug databases. And if it's an over the counter product, it may be very difficult to identify, because they don't have to log their imprints with the FDA. Most gas products, however, are gelcaps and not tablets, which usually contain Simethicone. It could possibly be an antacid: Was it found in the U.S.? ## Could be 019 (610 upside down)? If so, perhaps it's Actavis' alprazolam 25mg ODT. They're small and round. No "s" though.
