Zodran And Adcil
No Biggy: Why not just take care of the acid reflux? There are many medications for it, and dietary modification, even Tums. Yes, Zofran (ondansetron) (ondansetron) helps nausea but it will make you drowsy (maybe that's what you need?), and yes, you could take a Zofran (ondansetron) if the acid reflux makes you nauseated. No biggy. But it's always better to attack the cause-that will then take care of the symptoms. And if not you'll need to see your doc ...Read more
Please answer urgently! I am experiencing a severe headache behind my left eye, accompanied by nausea. Will Zofran (ondansetron) help this nausea? Advil didn't help
For chemotherapy vomiting I'm on compazine phenergan (promethazine) Zofran emend and ativan all to no avail even when combined. What's the next step to get relief?
Try Marinol capsules:
Marinol is a good drug. It works quite well especially if nothing else has worked well for you.
Good luck. ...Read more
Can you take zofran and metoclopamide together. I have bile acid malabsorption and have nausea and bad upper stomach pain every day?
Ok, but...: There are no interactions between the two, so they can be used at the same time. But there is potential for side effects, especially of the metoclopramide. Therefore, you should follow whatever regimen your G.I. Dr. Believes is best. Good luck. ...Read more
Evaluate diet first: How was the acid pH diagnosed? If by pH strip testing of saliva or urine, these tests can reflect the ingestion of too much acid-producing foods in the diet. I would suggest keeping a 7-day food diary along with pH testing of urine (mid-stream) & have that information reviewed by a holistic (integrative) physician who is well-versed in nutrition as a first step, then assess if more wk-up is needed ...Read more
Out of Context: I am sorry but that simple sentence is completely out of context and missing anything upon which to respond. What is your concern? What are your symptoms? What caused you to get this test? Was the test a blood test? ...Read more
Psychologic effect: By acid, I assume you mean LSD. LSD can produce psychological effects and altered sense of reality. Remember the Beatles song Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds? The song is reportedly describes the effects of LSD. While it is not physically additive, using LSD on a regular basis, the hallucinogenic effect of drug can make it difficult for the user to have any normal sense of reality. So avoid use. ...Read more
It's OK-It's Organic: Are you referring to 2-hydroxypropane-1, 2, 3-tricarboxylic acid [CH2 (COOH)COH (COOH)CH2 (COOH)]? -or perhaps 4-methylbenzenesulfonic acid [CH3C6H4SO3H]? I guess what I'm trying to say is that there are so many, some OK, some not OK and others VERY not OK-would be hard to say, but if you stick to citric acid in fruit and maybe 5% acetic acid in vinegar you'll be OK. Stay away from Formic: you'll go blind ...Read more
Yes: There are conditions known as acidosis & alkalosis, too much and too little acid, respectively. Acid-base physiology is a complex topic, but in general, either can usually be classified as either respiratory or metabolic (or sometimes both!). Two systems keep acid/base balance in check: respiratory (lungs) and renal (kidneys). Disorders of either system can disrupt the body's ability to regulate. ...Read more
They're mostly gone: These are synthetic fatty acids popularized long ago in shortenings. Retrospective studies link them inconsistently to coronary artery disease, but folks who've eaten a lot of crisco probably have other bad heart-health habits as well. Despite much "theory", animal work supporting the dangers is in my opinion very weak. Politicians have removed them from most foods. I don't miss them at all. ...Read more
A couple of ideas: Yogurt contains lactobacilli which, by many, are considered probiotics...substances which confer a beneficial effect in a person's body. These favorable bacteria can reduce inflammation and promote recovery from viral infection, travel and antibiotic use. Additionally, yogurt (and other dairy products such as milk and cheese) can buffer stomach acid, raising pH, and improving probiotic survival. ...Read more
Most foods are fine: There are few foods which you might call 'acidic'. This may include oranges and other tart foods. Most of the acidity in our stomach is produced from the normal acid secretions of the stomach which can bother some folks especially if they have acid reflux problems. This can be easily controlled with antacids like zantac (ranitidine) or pepcid. Prilosec is even more effective. ...Read more
Yes but need more information.

LSD Effects: If you do not have any current symptoms, you are fortunate. Most of the symptoms are related to large doses, and repeated doses. A few have had "flashbacks" after taking one dose. The more you use and the larger the doses, more serious side effects and long term sequela can occur. Not worth the risk. ...Read more
Why do you ask?: Human tissues can be disolved in certain acids / chemicals over a period of time. ...Read more
