Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.
- Can clindamycin irritate a hi hernia?
Since I have been taking for 4 days my hi hernia has been acting up. Should I stop taking the medication?
- What are some known or reported side effects from a zantac overdose? especially long term side effects?
My son was born preterm weighing in at 5lbs. During his time in the NICU the doctors diagnosed him with acid reflux and started him on Ranitidine. One day prior to him leaving the NICU I was given a script to be filled for at home use. The dosage was suppose to be .375ml but instead the pharmacy filled it for 3.75ml (ten times the amount). This medication was suppose to be given two times a day. After 4 days of being given the higher dosage I noticed a huge difference in my son's behavior. His bowel movements became for frequent (about every 30 minutes), he wasn't as alert (he had this blank stare), and he began to vomit very often. He also had blood in his stool. He was readmitted into ICU after we found the mistake with the dosage and his stomach was pumped and IV's were inserted. He was monitored for 3 days and then released. The problem I have now is that no one has dealt with this kind of overdose and has no information for me to look for as far as long term side effects go.
- For the past 7 years have gotten these severe painful attacks. i get about 1 to 2 a year. they start out like a case of food poisoning with diarrhea and vomiting. the pain is intense and as severe (2 answers)
The pain is intense and severe as all natural childbirth. The pain is so intense I cannot move, talk, or function. I just keep heaving bile until I am so dehydrated I get taken to the emergency room. They run tests and CAT scans on me but can never find anything. I have gone to a specialist in the past and he thought it could be Irritable Bowel Syndrome (which it is not). After this recent attack I went to a bspecialist that suggested it could be gastritis. He suggested the medicine. What throws me off is I cannot find accounts of such severe gastritis. The pain in experiencing is CRIPPLING. Does anyone else have it had INTENSE PAINFUL attacks and if so is it gastritis??
- I am taking omeprazole and ranitidine for acid reflux both seem to be giving me side effects fatigue, dizziness (1 answer)
I took esomoprazole ( nexium ) 20 mg for acid reflux for thirteen days but felt so unwell side effects fatigue and feeling very unsteady and disoriented , not all the time but enough to make me want to stop taking it. It had however diminished my cough and sore throat caused by the reflux. My gastro enterologist suggested stopping it for 2days and then trying omeprazole and ranitidine instead. I took 20 mg of omeprazole as prescribed for 2 days and a quarter of the prescribed 300mg ranitidine. I felt completely exhausted for most of the day and dizzy as well. So cut down my omeprazole to about 10gms and side effects not so bad but my cough and sore throat back. Any advice or suggestions. Should I go back to natural remedies. I have also been taking advance gaviscon after meals and at bedtime dont think it is doing much. Also small meals, raised head of bed and not eating for 2-3 hrs before bedtime

- Apple cider vinegar does work in place of nexium.
I took the maximum dose of drugs from I was 4 years old to control my conditions. I was, until recently, on Nexium 70mg per day.
I went cold turkey and started instead to take apple cider vinegar with the mother. I remain off all medication and I am able to control my symptoms using 1 tablespn 3 times per day. It's great to be drug free.
