Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Been going on for about 1 week. No insurance so I can't go to doctor right now. Did recently recover from strep throat, by using Amoxicillin. I also drank grapefruit juice and orange juice while sick, while taking all above medications. Any suggestions?

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • RESOTRAN 2 MG (PRUCALOPRIDE SUCCINATE) was not recognized. It was prescribed to stimulate bowel despite the fact that it clearly says it is not to be used for Crohn's patiens.
