Tobacco can itself cause acidity, lybrate-user. You need to quit tobacco fully. Psychiatrist or you yourself can take the help of nicotine replacement gums, pastules and patches. You can also try with buproprion over the counter tablets. The dose and other psychosocial methods will be attached to it by the manufacturing company. Only varinicline needs psychiatrist's prescription. More the number of attempts to quit, better is your understanding of relapse situations. Work on them one by one. All the best.

Since you are on antituberculr treatment. You may be having these symptoms due to side effect of these drugs. Gastritis/ gas, derange liver function / jaundice, loss of appitite, weakness etc are some very commonly seen side effects. Please consult your doctor for physical check up & base line blood investigations/ sonography as per need. Take light but nutrious diet at short intervals. Avoid oily, spicy, junk foods, excessive tea/ coffee etc. To prevent acidity. Take care.

Unhealthy eating habits and stress are usually responsible for acidity. Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

Your doctor is right, eat right food at regular intervals, through your constitution you will know about the foods causing gas e g cabbage, chane, beans, too much spices and oils. Get de worming done-3 tabs of nemocid together+ 200mg metrogyl twice daily after food for 3 days. Take antacids in the form of food like toned milk, curd, banana, cucumbers, dry biscuits and say no to maida, noodles, white bread, take less of sugar and salt.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. If any concern then feel free to contact we will then discuss and start you on medication if needed as every one has a different requirement of medicine.

It seems as if you are bothered with constipation/irregularities of your bowel habbits. Let me tell you how can your digestive system be regularized. First of all have a look at your life style. Regular sleep and dietary habbits, in most of cases do suffice. Any addictions, may be smoking, drinking, tobacco chewing etc. also have bad effects on digestion. In addition, compulsorily mixed type of salad must be present at each time when you eat.Add fruits of season to lunch. Extra effort for the problem may be taken in the form of 2 spoons of honey added to half a cup of Lukewarm water every morning empty stomach is excellent remedy. A week or so, if followed the above, still persistent, medicines may be prescribed. Not now. Hope satisfied Regards

How to stop gas problem. i am suffering form this very often when i eat something
to stop gas poblem: -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Stress may increase stomach acids -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up  -Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. -Review the medications;that cause acidity: like pain relievers/ antibiotics/Iron tablets HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food  -TREATMENT: -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like Mucaine gel, may give relief.  -For severe cases,tablet Rabicip-D, are taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach.

I have problem of acidity, what are possible reasons for acidity? What should I do? Is any simple way to control it? Too late sleep at night is a true reason?

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
I have problem of acidity, what are possible reasons for acidity? What should I do? Is any simple way to control it? ...
acidity is due to an incorrect lifestyle and irregular eating patterns, not taking enough fluids,sedentary lifestyle.Foods that are heavy and difficult to digest, as well as oily, spicy, fried, and junk foods are the culprits. Eating food in a disturbed atmosphere or in front of the television and being awake late at night all lead to bowel disturbance. Psychological factors like stress, anxiety, fear, jealousy, and sorrow also play an important role. DIET & LIFESTYLE ADVICE: Increase intake of fiber, especially fruits and cooked vegetables. An Apple or Pineapple/Pomegranate each day is helpful.  Drink 7-8 glasses of lukewarm water each day. Take daily morning and evening walks for at least 20-30 minutes each. Eat whole grains /nuts/sprouts and Muesli in breakfast Avoid removing bran from the flour because it clears the intestines  Avoid refined foods like white flour, bread, pasta, pizza, white rice,or high protein foods like cheese,meat and cold foods like ice cream or chilled drinks  take tablet sompraz -d twice daily before meals daily and syp gaviscon 2 tsp twice daily after meals
