Reclipsen causing stomach pains after taking pill. Ppi helps some, but still getting daily indigestion. Will this subside? 5 weeks on reclipsen.
Try another pill: If you are truly not tolerating a birth control pill after an entire cycle (and needing to take another pill to counteract a side effect), then it sounds like you and that pill are not a good match. Omeprazole is an antacid designed to be taken in 2 week bursts and is not really meant to be taken for long periods to counter a side-effect. I think it would be worth discussing changing pills. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im taking antibiotics to treat intestine infection. I take the meds with food but still have upset stomach during the day. Help!?
Can happen!: Unfortunately this can happen to many. Try taking carafate (sucralfate) during the day (several hours before your antibiotic dose. This can help. It is not issues related to stomach acid, so zantac, prilosec, and antacids would not help. Pepto-bismol might work as well! sorry! ...Read more
A ER doctor prescribed antibiotics for intestine infections. Im getting side effects of excessive saliva and upset stomach. I must take meds for 7 day?
Yes: You must finish the antibiotics in order to prevent resistant bacteria from evolving. Whenever i prescribe antibiotics to my patients i advise them to take a good probiotic and double it up while you take antibiotics. And continue for 3 weeks after. All broad spectrum antibiotics kill the bad and the good bacteria. Symbiotic gut bacteria are important for optimal health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Ocp are associated with nausea and vomiting in some patients, and is thus one of the more common side effects listed. For many, taking ocp prior to going to bed at night is helpful as the levels are higher while patient is asleep and less likely to be affected.

See details: The Naproxen does not cause acid reflux as its actually can cause major esophageal irritation and even esophageal ulcers. Stopping all nsaids is an essential step.

Fever, flu symptoms after taking a prevacid (lansoprazole)..Fever only lasted 2-3 hrs and never returned..I've taken it before. Side effect? Coincidence?
Coincidence.: While any medication can have side effects (including flu like symptoms) very few can cause fever. My guess is that you had a virus that has now passed. The way to know for sure would be to take the medication again. If the symptoms soon return, then it was the medication; if they do not, then it was coincidence. ...Read more

Gastritis: Maggie, it sounds like your stomach is inflamed. In order to improve it, take an antacid like cimetidine or ranitidine, and avoid NSAIDs, alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. Reduce spicy foods and fatty foods. It will probably take a week or two, but your stomach should feel better. If your pain worsens or you start vomiting blood, see your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Food poisoning. Taking buscopan n loperamide. Still not well after 4 days. Stomach cramp, gas n diarrhoea.Will taking ultracarbon or antibiotics help?
Thoughts..: The symptoms of a viral gastroenteritis lasts anywhere from 3-10 days. We get more concerned about severe or bacterial illness when there is prolonged fever (>3 days), blood in the stool, intense abdominal pain, or not being able to hold anything down. Antibiotics could help if it was a bacterial illness, but it's impossible to know which one to use without a stool culture. ...Read more
I'm on antibiotics (amoxicillin) andhave the worst stomach aches /heartburn. Can i take Prilosec and Zantac (ranitidine) or will that counteract the amox?
Take either: I can't recall any reason not to use either medicine for your discomfort. They should have no effect at all on the activities of the antibiotic. Your stomach meds work there & the capsule encases the abx so it glides past the stomach so it avoids the stomach acid. It is absorbed in the intestines before it starts to work. ...Read more
