From this study (4 weeks ago):
Had an wisdom tooth operation, ate paracetamol and ibuprofen for about 2 weeks. The last treatment days I began to notice breakouts on my chin. I don't know why they came but I'm thinking it maybe depends on the pills I was eating.
From this study (1 year ago):
I took extremely large amount of ibuprofen over a 2 1/2 day period--800mg x 5 or 6 times/day at least in attempt to ease pain from a terrible toothache. Also took penicillin 500 mg tabs--5-6 times/day for 2 1/2 days. When I finally got relief on 3rd day, I ceased all meds but was left w/a horrible stomach pain. The pain is not constant. Comes & goes & when it comes its almost like it comes in spasms in the upper area of my abdomen. I started taking famotidine today--I just took my 2nd dose (I've taken per directions on box--every 12 hrs prn). I take this med w/a glass of water...but for a short time after first taking the famotidine, its like the spasm-like pain worsens....after a period of time--my entire abdomen pain does ease up.I'm wondering 2 things---1)Did the large amount of ibuprofen or penicillin cause this stomach pain...2)Is it normal for stomach pain to worsen right after taking famotidine & then ease up? ...I do not health insurance to seek med help & since this problem has just started, I thought I'd try to treat myself before paying out a huge med bill--assuming its just a temp issue. Please advise. Thanks much!

You sheed the lining of your stomach. Call Gastridous or something. It makes your blood pressure high. Go to hospitial they have special GI drinks. Take ZAntac 150mg for like 2 months and that will bring things around. Also check into the BRAT diet i think. shit that is easy on the stomach for a while so it can repair itself
