I have been given three shots of steroids for allergies and I am taking 5 mg of prednisolone a day. I have a serious stomach ache can I take a librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide)?

I have been diagnosed with gastritis and prescribed Trustan and Librax. I have a terrible headache. What can I take to help? My dr said no antiinflams
Gastritis: Both medications are appropriate and can be used to treat gastritis and ulcer disease. Definitely no NSAID's this group will make it worse and increase the risk of ulcer.

What kind of bad?: Librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide) is a very old (and in my opinion obsolete and irrational) drug, containing a tranquilizer (since the thought is people with irritable bowel symptoms are all anxious) and an antispasmodic. Both can cause significant side effects, including constipation, urinary retention, excessive sedation, slow heart rate, dizziness and lightheadedness. There are better treatments for IBS. ...Read more
