Phytic Acid Side Effects
Side Effects: Bleeding is the main one especially in the GI tract. Ringing in the ears & angioedema (swelling of skin tissues) can also occur. In children and adolescents, Aspirin is no longer indicated to control flu-like symptoms or the symptoms of chickenpox or other viral illnesses, because of the risk of reye's syndrome.
GABA: Although it has relaxing effect when used as supplement, some can develop amnesia at high doses.
No suppository: Boric acid is used as an otic solution to dry out ears. I am not aware of any use in the form of a suppository. Unless you are doing under medical direction and supervision, I would strictly avoid boric acid suppositories.
Limited: Side effects are mostly limited to stomach upset. Every person is different but major side effects are rare.
Safe to take: There really shouldn't be any side effects at that dose. That is the recommended dose for many brands of over the counter vitamin c supplements. As with any pill/drug/supplement you may have upset stomach from taking it or have an allergic response to it. Alwys check with your doctor before starting any supplement to ensure that it is safe for you to take. Hope this helps.
Uncertain: This drug is not prescribed very often. What is the reason it was ordered? It intereferes with the normal breakdown of blood clots, so can be helpful in some patients with very low platetlet counts who do not respond to transfusions and are bleeding. However, this effect can be dangerous if serious infections occur that can trigger clotting throughout the body.
Very rare: Supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections are a type of "visco-supplementation" treatment for knee arthritis. Side effects are exceeding rare, but any injection into the knee joint could introduce an infection or cause an inflammatory reaction to occur. I have used supartz (hyaluronic acid) in my practice for nearly 14 years on a regular basis without any documented side effects.See 1 more doctor answer
Pepsid or Zantac (ranitidine): Pepsid (generic famotadine) is a good over the counter medicine for reflux. Zantac (generic ranitidine is also good) both of these are well tolerated with minimum side effects. Please make sure your diagnosis has been confirmed by a professional before self medicating.See 1 more doctor answer
Lots!: He could get belly pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, painful urination, bloody urine, headache, flushing, lightheadedness, kidney stones, or even an allergic reaction (hives, facial swelling, etc.). Also Ascorbic Acid (vitamin c) can interact or interfere with medications. Talk to his doctor about your concerns, and have him seen right away if he's having symptoms.
Similar to aleve (naproxen): Mefenamic acid (ponstel) belongs to the non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aleve, (naproxen) Motrin etc. Common side effects: abd pain, anorexia, diarrhea, nausea, gastritis/ulcers/bleeding, flatulence, constipation, and less commonly low blod count, renal failure, allergic reaction etc. Use smallest effective dose for shortest time possible. Consult doc. Good luck.
Cramp diarrhea: High doses of Folic Acid might cause abdominal cramps, diarrhea, rash, sleep disorders, irritabilit, confusion, nausea, stomach upset, behavior changes, skin reactions, seizures, gas, and excitability. Folic acid in 800-1200mcg might increase the risk of heart attack in people who have heart problems. Don't take more than 400mcg a day unless directed by your healthcare provider.
