He's got a subscription for Altosec for 6 months, but I just want to know if anybody can tell me what medication he can get there that will be the same? It is urgent.

Alternatives to Carafate

I have ulcers that are not healing and my MD prescribed Carafate but I broke out with severe hives. Is there any alternative? ## Hello eleni, There are alternatives out there but it is unwise for me, or anyone on the internet, to recommend you take any type of medication especially when you had an allergic reaction to a previous brand of this type. I recommend contacting your doctor to see if they can determine what you were allergic to and see if they need to bloodwork to determine what the best route to take is next. I wish you the best of luck.

Omee drug information

I am 57 and my doc has put me on omee for ulcers. Can u tell me if omee also helps with pain? My doc gave me a one week dose for ulcers. I notice it also helps me with pain around my ankles. I am on artherxin for pain. What do I continue with? ## No, it doesn't do anything to help with pain. It contains the active ingredient Omeprazole, which is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by your stomach. Learn more Omee details here. How long have you been taking the Arthrexin? Learn more Arthrexin details here. It contains a very potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it could just be that it's working better for you, the longer you're on it and it reaches more effective levels in your body.

Should Pan 40 be taken before or after food

To reduce acidity in the stomach, should Pan 40 be taken before or after food ## Hello, Vicky! How are you?

Tagamet is a Protagonist for Methadone and Xanax, How about Ativan?

- Tagamet is a protagonist for some narcotics (like Methadone) and some benzodiazepenes (like Xanax)... Meaning if you take say 800mg of Tagamet 3 hours Before taking your regular Methadone dose, it will make the effects of the Methadone last longer and stronger (< not always stronger if longer acting, but by experience it does with Methadone) But I 'think' I read that Ativan is not one of the Benzos that Tagamet (generic Cimitedine - sp?) will elongate the effects of. I'm worried since - big surprise! - I have urine drug tests every week or 2 at the Methadone clinic where they Watch it leave and enter the cup. My probation officer 10 years ago wasn't that close to me for testing! Anyways Ativan leaves the body in 7-22 hours max. I know this to be true since I've...

Wiil Ranitidine Produce A False Positive For Methamphetimines In Hair Follicle Test And Where Is The Proof

While I was pregnant I was prescribed to take ranitidine for heartburn. After my child was born I took a urine test that came up negative.

pan 40 in pregnancy

Can I take pan 40 or pan d during pregnancy? Please advice me. ## There are no studies showing the Pantoprazole is known to be dangerous, during pregnancy, but the NIH does advise that it only be taken by a pregnant woman if no other options work, or if other options are not available. The same applies to the Domperidone in Pan D, it should only be taken if your doctor feels that the benefits to you will outweigh any possible risk. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, stomach pain, flatulence, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications?

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.

Anyone with similar interest? ## Daflon is actually a supplement given to help with such conditions, it is not, however, a medication.

What has your doctor suggested? As to the Sucralfate, we do have a page with some information here: Are there any questions? ## medicine DAFLON 500 mg, is what for? and what ...

My Gastro doc had me on this (Pantoprazole 40mg) (first Nexium until insurance would no longer pay for Nexium) for 1.5 yrs for ulcers-----He said my ulcers are cured now taper off ------I can't seem to get off this stuff.

Ranitidine 150 mg tablets

Is ranitidine still safe to take after the expiration/discard date? Mine is 10/10/12. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Most medications, such as Ranitidine, don't get dangerous when expired, but they do begin to lose efficacy after that point. Thus, the older they are, the less they are going to work. Learn more Ranitidine details here. It would really be best to just dispose of the expired and purchase new. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I was on omeprazole for about 2 and a half years, and on Rapeprazole for 10 years for acid reflux. My last endoscopy revealed fundic polyps so I stopped taking the omeprazole and my GP put me on Ranitidine 150mg x2 daily. Have been taking them for for 5 days now.
