Avatar n tn Glen, Thanks for the advice (that goes for everyone!) I do notice that when I dont take my prilosec, I really pay for it!! Thanks for the advice.
172023 tn?1334675884 Many of you know my trials and tribulations with Jake the Vomiting Doberman. No reason for him to vomit after all the tests and such they've done. He's just what they call a "Puker-dog". He vomits when his stomach his too empty. Anyway, they tried him on Cerenia, a new med for dogs with nausea/vomiting. Its a GODSEND. its extremely expensive ($32 for FOUR PILLS). Its to be taken once a day.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Because these compounds were engineered for humans , dogs eventually cease responding to them. But they often do raise the pets PVC for a time. There is a danger in giving this product. When the pet's immune system decides to attack human erythropoetin as a foreign protein, it not only destroys the human erythropoetin that was given - it also destroys the pets natural erythropoetin. So it can make the anemia even worse. It should only be used as a last ditch effort.
Avatar m tn Re the Omeprazole, I did wonder about this and also the dosage for his body weight. My dad takes 10mg Omeprazole as a maintenance dose for his acid reflux and he is a 6ft man! I'm concerned this is too high a dose for Doozer. From researching the web, it looks like he should be on 5mg. I will ask for the oral suspension as splitting the capsules is ridiculous!
19691093 tn?1488197669 This can be extremely tricky when a dog has a heart problem, but it is more risky with dogs that have congestive heart failure, which I am not so sure is the diagnosis here.
4043517 tn?1374010173 30PM. Got dressed for bed, and spent the next every two hours waking, moaning, walking and peeing. Popped some Norcos in the middle of the night so there goes some of my stash. Couldn't help it, this **** hurts.
Avatar n tn Is it possible that the Prilosec would not do the trick for me? Why would everything (even six hours later) be undigested food and not acidic if my problem is acid reflux? Also, if it's acid reflux, why would the Prilosec not help much? Second of all...why would this medication sit in my stomach for five weeks without being dissolved or digested. Is that possible? I KNOW it was that medication, and I know my stomach is slow, but that's ridiculous.
Avatar n tn Doc says he thinks it's stress and I should try Prilosec. Took three Rolaids for the first time in my life and ended up in bed the next day with major stomach pain. Few days later, try the Prilosec, same problem. Doc prsecribes Aciphex, same problem. Gave up on Doc and suffered through another month. Finally told them, "I DON'T HAVE ULCERS! LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE." They finally did a stool test which was positive for Giardia. Took Flagyl for 13 days!!!

544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar n tn A friend of mine with similar problems to mine was using the same proton inhibitor at the same dosage that I was on for two years. She told me that it ended up destroying the linings of her stomach and small intestine. She has to get vitamin B shots weekly for the rest of her life now. As soon as she told me that, I stopped taking the stuff altogether. Besides, it was starting to make me feel nauseous all the time.
192055 tn?1263559137 The pulminologist has given me a steroidal enhaler (Advair) at the max dosage to take bi-daily for the next month or two. It's been a couple of weeks and I don't see any improvement. Does anybody know what this problem might be? Has anyone had a similar experience to this? I really need help because I want to knick this problem in the butt.......It is miserable being 26, so young and living with this.
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
433892 tn?1208435343 with the exception of the atenolol...Ive been on that for..oh..20 years....dosage has been increased over the years. I now take 50 mg in the morning..and 50 mg at night. Most of the time it works great. Like I said, I havent had many palps at all ( knock on wood!) in quite a while. Im afraid they may be returning, though..they always do when Im under stress..and Ive never been under as much as I have been recently; and/or will be in the future...
Avatar f tn I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.

Avatar f tn In addition, my cousin who passed, her mother passed from Lupus in her forties. I have also been thru tx for HCV and am okay now for about yr and half.
1932256 tn?1327949940 Locked myself in my room, and my husband took care of the dogs for the weekend. Started the Saurday after Thanksgiving, and started to feel better after day 8. Still cant sleep and anxiety here and there, but the worst is over. I didnt want to, and still dont, want to talk with anyone. Family was told to not call, just leave me alone, until I call. Didnt want my husband bothering me, and yet, didnt want to be alone. Your son is going thru what most everyone goes thru during this trying time.
Avatar n tn The pain meds were probably not for your heart and if I had to guess it was for some type of musculoskeletal pain that your physician thought you had. Set up an appointment with your physician or even his/her nurse to help go over things. Also, work on identifying what caused your panic attack and triggers and coping mechanisms for dealing with it should it recur.
Avatar n tn I have been on prilosec BID for 3 years, for GERD, and lipitor for cholesterol. However, I get bouts of severe stomach distress that presents as eggy, foul-tasting burping, then stomach cramping, bloating and nausea. It is pretty debilitating for a whole day, and makes me feel horrible. Bentyl doesn't help much, nor does Gaviscon. Does anyone have an idea what is causing this?? Is it the pylorus, or lactose intolerance...something totally different that my doctor and I are missing?
Avatar n tn Hi Carrie, That sux that it doesn't work for you. How long did you take it for, what other medication / suppliments where you taking?? I'm sure you've tried many things, one way I deal with PVC's when they get really bad is to do some breathing excersises, these really do help. Does Coenzyme Q10 Help PVC'z? 1 x Yes, fixed them completely. 1 x No, didn't work for me.
436516 tn?1382388265 I am currently having many of these same problems. Tickle in throat, sharp pain, cough, tears, nose dripping. This has been happening for the past 5 months. I've been to a ENT. He said it was my tonsils. I had them out. At first while I was on meds during my recovery from the surgery the symptoms stopped. But after I stopped taking the pain killers anti-biotic and the steroids the tickle came back. I've been taking Previcid for acid reflux but this has not stopped the attacks.
Avatar n tn After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day. Could this be a pinched nerve or nerve compression? Had MRI of lower lumbar which showed normal...chiro recommends stretching excersises, something serious has to be wrong with this kind of pain. If anyone has any ideas it would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Avatar n tn I just sent you a comment or two, but come to find out, the message did not take. I will try again. At the risk of being fatherly, I beg you not to come "unglued." As I mentioned on my previous editorials, I have been experiencing this problem, off and on, for about two years. I used to become unglued. I used to stare at the ceiling for hours, "listening" to my wife and my dogs, yes my dogs, sleeping so deeply and I felt benignly jealous.
Avatar n tn For about 6 weeks I have been experiencing mid back pain when I wake up in the morning. The pain is so bad, I cannot go back to sleep, and NO position change helps. I must get out of bed and start walking around or sit in a chair for the pain to start going away. After an hour or two, the pain basically disappears. The pain seems to be emanating from my spine, and tensing up the back muscles nearest the spine.
Avatar n tn Weeks pass between bouts of it, then the taste comes back and lasts for a few days. Chemically, very bitter, biting taste! Tonight I told my husband about it and he thought I just had a bitter taste in my mouth. It's NOT in my mouth! I explained that no, this is on all my skin, my lips, my arms, my hands. I put the tip of my finger in his mouth and he immediately knew what I was talking about. He could taste it! So this is not a delusion - something odd is happening here.
Avatar n tn How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar f tn However sometimes even medication doesn't help, so you should go for the multiple method approach. 1- Take your medication everyday (my doctor told me it was safe to do it for 20 days or so for persisting infections, although you'd better consult a doctor anyway). 2- Eating 20-30 pumpkin seeds everyday (unprocessed, uncooked, with the peel) works wonders. You can also mix 60 gm of grind pumpkin seeds (with the peel) with honey and water. Eat the mixture in 3 portions every 2 hours.
