Pill with ^

different color (pink and yellow) round flat pill (looks like Tums) has a ^ above a P and 043 below the P ## What is it? I am trying to find the name of it with only having looked at it... ## Watson Pharmaceuticals lists this as being a Cal-Gest tablet, which contains 500mgs of Calcium Carbonate, it is most commonly used to treat GERD, heart burn, ulcers, and gastritis. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dry mouth, flatulence, and funny taste in mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Round yellow pill RP 115

Need to know what this round yellow wafer is that has RP 115 on one side? Thank u. ## Hi Amanda, "RP" sounds like the abbreviation for a product from Rhodes Pharmaceuticals, as they label many of their tablets in this manner. If you have a moment, I'd recommend contacting them directly for more specific details at: rhodespharma.com/get-in-touch NOTE: There have also been other reports of a large, flat, greyish tablet with RP 115 that's reportedly an antacid similar to TUMS. Since yours is yellow and depicted differently, I can only hope these additional clues help narrow down some possibilities. Please post back if you come across any further information.

round 1 white pill or tablet with g173

Found these in my daughters purse, two of them in a baggie that shows a piece of paper made in china, cant be correct wrapper but looks sort of like a over sized tums and tastes sort of minty. I licked the back to see if it tasted medicine like or what I got, minty/tingly ## This is a generic antacid like Tums. I got a roll of these when i was at the airport and had heart burn. They are minty and they do work. ## My research leads me to believe that Guardian Drug Company may be the manufacturer of these pills [hence the letter 'G'], seeing as they make OTC mint flavored Tums, Rolaids and Mylanta tablets. Source: Guardian Drug Company Product List Please note however, that I have not been able to locate a photograph for proof. Hope this helps! ## These G 173 tablets were in a bot...

Antacids with no artificial sugars

I have nighttime acid reflux mostly. The ranitidine works to keep my acid lower but I get very vivid dreams. I try occasional Gaviscon but all these antacids with artificial sugars give me bad gas and are bad for you. They say tums and other antacids would taste too chalky w/o the sorbitol? Too much baking soda is bad for your kidneys... PPIs are generally bad for you. My head is elevated and I don't have any food or drinks for 3 hrs. before bed. Any ideas on a safe antacid for nighttime GERD? ## Hi Trish, Sorry to hear about your condition with GERD. My dad has a similar problem and also doesn't eat or drink a few hours before bedtime. He was also searching for an alternative and I found a natural product containing apple cider vinegar and raw manuka honey that solves his acidi...

Other treatments for acid reflux

Hi, I suffer with chronic heart burn and would like to know what else i could use. I've tried tums. I can eat a whole bottle and it doesn't help. I've also tried 150mg ranitidine which doesn't help. I've tried everything over the counter and it still doesn't seem to help. What else can i do to stop this heart burn? ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you doing? Has there been any change? Have you consulted your doctor? There are prescription products that you can try, as well as higher doses of some of the over the counter products, but only with your doctor's approval, according to FDA reports.

flucloxacillin and heartburn remedys

Can I take heartburn remedys with fluxocillin ## Hello, Tracey! How are you? You can, as long as your doctor approves, but you should stay away from anything that contains calcium, aluminum and etc. like Tums or Rolaids, since it can cause you to nor absorb all the antibiotic, which may reduce its efficacy. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

False drug test inhaler

I use albuteral inhaler PRN and was tested at tx and it showed a faint line for meth. Can it be the inhaler? I've only taken tums, ibuprofen, bendryl and melanoma. Why is it showing as if I failed the test but never used meth. Can the drugs above alter results on drug test! Could it be a bad test as I bought a home kit and all was negative.
