Can I take dantrolene if I have ulcers and gerd? is it better in this case to use injections?

Can I take dantrolene if I have ulcers and gerd?
is it better in this case to use injections?

You can take it.: Dantrolene does not cause direct toxicity to the digestive tract, and therefore can be used with a history of Gerd and/or ulcers. Having said that, it can cause digestive tract side effects, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea. If you need it for a particular reason, just be alert for the possibility of G.I. side effects. Good luck. ...Read more

Had malignant hyperthermia and my doctor used lexotanil.My legs improved but still can`t pass stool due to constricted muscles. is dantrolene better?

Good luck: Malignant hyperthermia is a very rare illness and it is a life threatening illness. Hospitals keep specific medicine available for such events. We used to share the medicine between three rural hospitals within 10-20 miles radius. What we used to have was dantrolene. What I am trying to say is that hospitals usually do not have many choices. They have to use what they have. You might have same reaction anyway. ...Read more
