Vimovo - side effects

When I started taking 2 Vimovo a day, I had some disconcerting side effects: coughing and wheezing at night, acid reflux that would be so severe I was up-chucking. One morning I awoke and all my muscles and body ached like I had the flu. I even coughed up some mucus tinged with blood. ## Hello, Nancy! How are you doing? Has there been any change? This medication contains a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, which according to the FDA, can cause stomach irritation and ulceration, however, it also contains Esomeprazole, which should help prevent such issues. The coughing and wheezing is concerning, because that could be a sign of other, possibly dangerous, health issues, according to the NIH. Have you informed your doctor? It would be best to have these symptoms checked out.

pinaclav 500 side effects

Hi, I'm on pinaclav 500 for 5 days now. I've another 5 days to go and since today there has been blood in my semen. Could the pinaclav be causing this. There is no pain, just a red tint. These are large white tablets, I'm also taking vimovo 500. These are orange. ## HI, Dub! Have you consulted your doctor? It's really difficult to say what may be causing it from just the limited information in your post, but there is a chance that it could be a serious medical issue that needs treatment. How much blood? ## Sounds like it's your kidneys or bladder infection and it is bad

It is a 500 mg and the main ingrediants are narproxen and esomeprazole magnesium and is usually prescribed for arthritis patients.. Can anyone help ? ## Vimovo combines the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory Naproxen, used to relieve pain and swelling, with the proton pump inhibitor Esomaprazol to protect the stomach from the irritation and damage that the NSAIDs can cause. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach pain. You can read more on both of these medications at th...
