Dear sir
i am taking nexum 40 mg +metronidazole 400 mg in morning  and 300 mg Zantac (ranitidine) evening time and 40 mg famotidine at night +metronidazole 400 mg ?

Your question...?: Your drug regimen is quite unorthodox--there is no apparent reason to combine two h2 blockers (zantac (ranitidine) and famotidine), nor is it clear what Metronidazole is treating here. Happy to assist, if we know what you're asking & you can provide a little more information please. ...Read more

Is it okay to take calcium carbonate with my tecta 40 mg (pantaprozole magnesium)?

Is it okay to take calcium carbonate with my tecta 40 mg (pantaprozole magnesium)?

Combination therapy: There is no adverse effect taking Tecta (T) with calcium carbonate (C). T eliminates the stomach's ability to secrete acid and its use should eliminate most pain from either GERD, gastritis or peptic ulcer disease. If you are taking C for heart burn relief, say a gastroenterologist to make sure you have nothing else wrong with your upper GI tract. Good luck. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed me to take pantoprazole 40 mg twice daily. Isn't this overdosage?

30 days on 40 mg pantoprazole, still mild heartburn, endoscopy diagnosed 3 'mild' stomach ulcers. Doc said try 40 mg panta a.M. 150mg ranitidine ?

30 days on 40 mg pantoprazole, still mild heartburn, endoscopy diagnosed 3 'mild' stomach ulcers. Doc said try 40 mg panta a.M. 150mg ranitidine ?

May need more: Infrequently, standard treatment is inadequate. I would first avoid all alcohol, coffee, tea, caffeinated beverages, and tomato sauces, as well as spicy foods. After doing that, if the heartburn is still felt, you could try the pantaprazole twice a day for at least 30 days. ...Read more

Can celexa 40 mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) 150 be taken together?

Can celexa 40 mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) 150 be taken together?

Combination of meds: Yes, they can. However, it's best to reduce the dose of citalopram to 20mg. citalopram and wellbutrin (bupropion) are in different classes thus they have different mechanisms of action. You can liken it to cream AND sugar in your coffee. ok with one or the other but maybe better with both. I do not recommend taking Phentermine under any circumstances. pls make sure to discuss all of this with your provider. ...Read more
