Peptic ulcer disease: Pylera (http://www.drugs.com/pylera.html) is a combination medication taken 4 times daily for 10 days in conjunction w/Omeprazole to treat peptic ulcer disease. PUD can make you feel full and hungry at same time. Work closely w/your prescribing doc - after all, you only need 10 days. If you feel worse, then of course, see him/her sooner/earlier. Beware black/tarry stools & coffee grind vomitus. ...Read more

Maybe, but...: Malabsorption is complex and may reflect bacterial fermentation from sibo, small bowel inflammation or mucosal disease (lots of causes), GI transit issues, pancreatic enzyme activity and sufficiency, etc. Since we can't say in your specific case what to expect, a word of advice may include a fructose re-trial if your doctor agrees after sibo eradication or treatment of enteritis (if present). ...Read more

I took 11 ponstan 250mg capsules a few days ago, did I overdose? what are the side effects?

Normal dosage: With 11 capsules you still didn't reached the maximum dosage for this medication. So you are in the safe zone. However we generally don't recommend taking the maximum dosage for over-the-counter medications. If you didn't overdose you generally would be quite ill having side pains, nausea vomiting headaches and often blurred vision. ...Read more
