For how long can you use daflon 500 mg

I have been using daflon 500 mg since March 25th 4 tablets twice a daily to cure hemorrhoids and I am feeling much better now but it seems I should continue using this medicine for complete cure. I am wondering for how long I should use it. Thanks for your reply ## Hello, I am working on Sucralfate. Anyone with similar interest? ## Daflon is actually a supplement given to help with such conditions, it is not, however, a medication. As such, there is no harm in its use, as long as you are not taking far too much and only your doctor could really advise you as to whether or not you should continue to use it for them.

Sucralfate with milk and probiotics

Can I drink milk immediately after I take sucralfate with water? Also, can I take a probiotic with sucralfate? ## Can I take probiotics with sucralfate 1gm 3x a day ## Hello Vince, According to the manufacturer's directions Sucralfate is to be taken on an empty stomach with a glass of water so the body can properly absorb the medication.

I was unable to find any interactions listed between Sucralfate and probiotics but please be mindful that when preparing to mix any type of medications it is important to consult your doctor and primary care physician.

Nausea

my daughter, 17, has had nausea for three weeks most likely due to the overuse of painkillers for migraine headaches and NSAIDs. Sucralsate was given to her and now her nausea tripled. Don't know how to undo what has been done. Any suggestions to lessen the nausea either from this or other options. She's on PPI but doesn't seem to be working. It's the nausea that bothering her more than stomach pain. ## Has she tried any alternative antacids, such as Pepcid, which contains the active ingredient Famotidine? In some people, the PPIs can worsen nausea, stomach pain and other symptoms, so they may not be the best choice for them to use. I had a similar problem, until I finally got lucky and an ER doctor determined that the PPI that had been prescribed for me was contributing...

what is teva 2210 used for

does this product have aluminum in it. does it interact with floxitine and also can it be takin at the same time or 2 hours later to work well. does it work good alone for acid reflex? does it work for the better if you have a hihanial hunea? how differant is it fro ranidine twicw a day? ## Hello, Cheryl! How are you? Teva Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as containing 1gram of Sucralfate, so no aluminum and I didn't find any interactions listed between them in the NIH databases. It's a gastric protective agent, which means it coats your gastro areas, to help prevent further damage and to allow any current injuries to heal. Ranitidine is an antacid, so it works by helping to neutralize some of you stomach acid, but it doesn't coat such areas, so it may not always help to he...

I'm currently prescribed 4 sucralfates per day, and 2 omeprazole. The instructions for sucralfate state do not take any other medications within 2 hours of taking this.
