What is the ?: If you were having angina - cardiac chest pain after activity - you should have been calling 911, getting ems or going to a hospital, and not sitting at your computer typing. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) salonpas and xanax are not the right treatment for an impending myocardial infarction. See your doctor about your chest pain and work on reducing your risks - smoking, overweight, high fat/cholesterol. Take aspirin. ...Read more

I was prescribed lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain. I have hiatal hernia, the heartburn is bad, ?

I was prescribed lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain. I have hiatal hernia, the heartburn is bad, ?

Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) bad idea: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should not be use for hiatal hernia pain. If you have a big hiatal hernia you may be masking pain from an ulcer or low blood flow to the stomach. If you have just heartburn then once or twice a day Nexium (esomeprazole) is an excellent choice. An endoscopy should be done to check for ulcers or infection with a bacteria called h. Pylori. All else fails then surgery is a good choice. ...Read more
