Several: You can take an acid buffering agent (tums, mylanta, maalox), an acid reduction agent (zantac, pepcid) or another omeprazole. But try to figure out what triggered the stomach problem (ie something you ate earlier today, extra coffee, etc) so you can avoid the problem altogether.

Yes I have been having constipation due to the opium pain pills I have to take for my pain! Can you recommend a good medication I can take daily! Thx?

Yes I have been having constipation due to the opium pain pills I have to take for my pain! Can you recommend a good medication I can take daily! Thx?

OIC: Opioids block the bowl opioid receptors. Hence most of the standard medications really do not work well. Certainly you can try them. The best is a specific bowel opioid antagonist called MOVANTIK 25mg per day. This works well and does not cross the blood brain barrier so the pain relief will still be there. Another one is an injectable called Relistor (methylnaltrexone) which works the same way. ...Read more

I am taking Plavix (clopidogrel) and I will have to add some Aspirin for a month. I have erosive gastritis. What should I do?

All depends: The most important factor is why you are taking the Plavix (clopidogrel). Some indications such as peripheral artery disease may not be as strong as others, i.e.recent stroke. Erosive gastritis is a serious risk for bleeding; your doctor(s) will want to weight the benefit of Plavix (clopidogrel)/aspirin against the risk for you. Options include no anti-coagulation to other alternatives including heparin. Work with your doc! ...Read more

You may need to see: your doctor again, as Reglan (metoclopramide) does not seem to be working very well for you. Certainly, take very small meals, chew thoroughly, drink liquids with meals, and lie on your right side after eating to help stomach to empty. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and I have got an upset tummy what can I take for this? Also is it ok to take paracetamol whilst pregnant

I'm 5 weeks pregnant  and I have got an upset tummy what can I take for this? Also is it ok to take paracetamol whilst pregnant

Maybe: Paracetamol is tylenol (acetaminophen) and this is a category b risk. Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women or animal studies have shown an adverse effect, but adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus in any trimester. Try unisom for the nausea. ...Read more

What over-the-counter pain medication can I take after having a laparoscopy? Vicodin makes me feel sick so i want to take an alternative.

What over-the-counter pain medication can I take after having a laparoscopy? Vicodin makes me feel sick so i want to take an alternative.

Two Options: 1-acetaminophen (aka tylenol) 2-nsaids (ibuprofen, naprosyn, (naproxen) advil, motrin, aleve). Most people find the nsaids more beneficial--in fact, i advise my patients to take them "around-the-clock" for the first few days. Although these are "over the counter", there are restrictions to using them--make sure it's ok with your surgeon. ...Read more

I have developed a serious gambling problem after taking Requip (ropinirole) for many years. I REALLY want to get off of this drug! What can I take instead?

I have developed a serious gambling problem after taking Requip (ropinirole) for many years.  I REALLY want to get off of this drug!  What can I take instead?

Interesting: Very interesting, odd effect. No simple answer. Since you were on Requip (ropinirole) for many years are you sure this isn't an independent process developed during the time you were on Requip (ropinirole)? There is a phenomenon we call, "True, True, and Unrelated": meaning two things occur in same time period but are not related. If you really think it is related then new Rx depends on illness details. ...Read more

I have a kidney stone and i want to know if i can take oxycodone while taking nortriptyline?

I have a kidney stone and i want to know if i can take oxycodone while taking nortriptyline?

Yes, but: The combination of the two can increase constipation, CNS depression, hypotension and psychomotor impairment. Speak with provider; may have to reduce the oxycodone dose. I also have kidney stones and know how painful they can be. Sometimes an anti-emetic can help if the oxycodone causes nausea. Nothing worse than being nauseated while having a kidney stone attack. ...Read more

Sertraline : Sertraline (zoloft) potentiates bleeding. So if there any concern over an ulcer it would not be safe. A safer choice may be to get a prescription for zofran (ondansetron) (odansetron) from student health. That is orally absorbed and safe to take for nausea. ...Read more
