Who gave me Gastrocrom in plastic vial

Found in overpacked purse. I have numerous autoimmune diseases,IBD, allergies, MCS, viruses, psoriasis. I have recently been to cataract surgery, GI doc, PCP, dermatologist. Which one may have given me the gastrocrom and how do I use it? ## I noticed barely legible print on the vial. It expired in 2001. I also researched gastrochrome and found it used for IBS as an anti inflammatory before NSAIDS were found more useful for IBS. I am allergic to all NSAIDS. I have very high inflammation markers. My thanks to all who read my post. ## It was probably your GI doctor that gave you the Gastrochrom. I was given it for collagenous collitis and mastocytosis of the colon. It does help with diarrhea. ## Pat is correct, Mastocytosis is what it is usually prescribed to treat. It can reduce such symp...

not sure if medicine can be taken together

I was prescribed Gastrocrom and Domperidome, can they be taken together? If so, is there any side effects? ## Hi Julie, The only drug interactions I found listed under Domperidone are if you were to take it with certain antibiotics or antifungal medications that have been known to increase the plasma concentration of Domperidone as well as it's potential for causing side effects. Nothing though is listed between Gastrocrom and Domperidone, so I would still encourage you to take that up with your doctor as a precautionary measure for more specific details. However even if there aren't any interactions, each medication's individual side effects are still at play and would also be something to watch out for; not to be mistaken for possible drug interactions or vise versa. Thoug...


My Allergy Dr. wants to start me on Gastrocrom. I have had anaphylaxis x 3, with severe reactions. What is this drug, is it very expensive and what are the major side effects.

The most common side effects are listed as being headache, muscle aches and diarrhea. What where you allergic to that caused the anaphylaxis?
