What Is Vimovo Prescribed For
Hello, my dr has just prescribed vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) I take citalopram 10mg every 2nd day for anxiety he said no problem I see drug interactions warnings. Advice?
Go see your doctor: Familiarize yourself w/ http://www. Drugs. Com/interactions-check. Php? Drug_list=679-0, 3233-14537 as well as whatever source you used to find interactions. Quote your pharmacist if possible (s/he did say something to you, right?). Then ask your doc about risks, benefits & alternatives. Is potential benefit worth potential risk? Are there other ppis eg esomeprazole? Or perhaps h2 blocker eg ranitidine.
Sounds ok: If a person had no prior problem with taking Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) by itself, or either of its ingredients by themselves; and had no problem taking Tylenol #1 (acetaminophen and codeine) by itself, or either of its ingredients by themselves; then she should be ok taking Vimovo and Tylenol #1 together. They may cause stomach symptoms. Be sure to follow one's doctor's instructions.
Yes: Tylenol contains Paracetamol. Vimovo contains Anti inflam. Therefore its safe to combine.
Like Aleve (naproxen): Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) has the same anti-inflammatory medication (naproxen) that is in aleve plus an antacid medication, known as nexium. The Naproxen can help with pain within an hour, but its anti-inflammatory effects will be more likely to take effect over the course of a few days (3-4) with routine administration (i.e. Taking it twice per day for 3-4 days).See 1 more doctor answer
Hi. I have really severe arthrithis' just takrn a pill of vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) 2 hours ago. I'm still in deep pain and cant work. How long to take effecty?
Arthritis pain: Vimova has anti inflammatory and anti acid medication, if it is not helping in an hour or so, you might want discuss about different treatment approach with your physician, Do not ignore the pain, if it is an unusual pain make sure nothing else like infection of the joint is going on and find out the type of arthritis as different treatments are available for different kind of arthriti
Not recommended: It may increase your risk of stomach bleeding.
Possible: Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) is a combination of Naproxen and esomeprazole. The Naproxen (NSAID) can cause all forms of GI upset, including erosive gastritis and perforation. Also must watch for severe skin reactions, red/ purple rash, which can be life-threatening. The longer you take it, the more likely you will get upper GI problems. Only 1 in 5 patients are symptomatic, so be careful, limit to short-term use.

Told my doc that Naproxen is beginning to hurt my stomach. She gave me Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) to soothe it, like a Zantac effect. Should I only use the Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) now?
NSAID gastritis: NSAIDS (eg. Naproxen, ibuprofen) can irritate the stomach, causing gastritis (inflammation) or ulcers. If on NSAIDs for a lengthy time or get stomach pain on them, physicians typically stop it, or recommend H2 blocker (eg ranitidine/Zantac etc) or proton pump inhibitor (eg esomeprazole/Nexium etc) for stomach protection for duration of treatment w NSAID.Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) is naproxen/esomeprazole in same pill.

My boyfriend has a mouth full of abscesses and the dentist in our town was closed so he went to the Dr and was givin a drug called Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) to treat HIV?
The question?: If your boyfriend has HIV, you need to take the proper precaution. He will also need to be under the care of someone who takes care of HIV and you need to be tested for STDs as well. Don't delay.
