Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule

Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule

Manufacturer: Eris Life Sciences Pvt Ltd
Medicine composition: Rabeprazole
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule is a proton inhibitor drug that is used in treatment of digestive conditions like acid reflux, heartburn, stomach ulcers, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastro-esophagea reflux disease and ulcers caused by a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori.

Acid reflux occurs when your stomach produces an excess of acid. Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule works by countering this process effectively. A proton pump inhibitor, blocks the pump in your stomach wall that secretes stomach acids. Therefore, it reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach. In this way, Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule acts by treating the symptoms of heartburn, acidity, neutralizing stomach acids and protecting the esophagus from damage.

Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule is a part of a family of drugs, called proton-pump inhibitors. This anti-ulcer drug is used in the treatment of gastrointestinal conditions such as acidity, gastric, peptic or duodenal ulcers, GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease and the long-term condition of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. It is also used in combination with other medicines, to eliminate Helicobacter pylori bacteria that cause you to develop ulcers.

Acid reflux occurs, when there is an excessive buildup of stomach acids that overflows to the esophagus and the throat. Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule, like other proton pump inhibitors, inhibits the stomach from secreting acids, by blocking the pump present in the wall of the stomach. This decreases the amount of stomach acids produced, making it highly effective in treating symptoms of acid reflux, heartburn, difficulty swallowing. It also protects the esophagus from being damaged by the stomach acids and helps ulcers to heal.

Mac Rabonik 40 MG Capsule is available in both capsule as well as tablet form, which are to be taken orally. The doctor will recommend a dosage according to the condition you suffer from, your age and the severity of this condition. It is important to continue taking this medicine until you have completed the prescribed course recommended by the doctor.

The severe side effects that you could experience are anxiety, seizures, irregular heartbeat, severe diarrhea with bloody stools, muscle spasms, Vitamin B12 deficiency and an allergic reaction.

If reflux is the major problem then most likely you have GERD, that can can also explain other symptoms you have (except Polycystic ovary). However only way to confirm this is by getting an Upper GI endoscopy done. Also should get an Ultrasound done to rule out Gall Bladder stones since they can also present with similar symptoms. You can continue with Mac Rabonik DSR capsule. It should be taken empty stomach, there should be a gap of at least 45 mins between taking the medicine and your breakfast. The best way is to take it with a Sip of water in morning immediately after getting up from bed then you can perform your routine activities like washroom, bathing. So by the time you finish up 45 mins would have been passed and then you can have your Tea or breakfast. This medicine can be taken twice a day once in morning as explained and evening dose around 2 hrs before dinner. You should also follow some lifestyle changes like regular exercise, avoiding tea/coffee, oily, spicy meal, avoiding food with high sugar content like sweets, juices. Also maintain a gap of at least 2 hrs between your dinner and laying down in bed, try lying in bed with your head end slightly raised by around 20-30 degrees or you can lay in left lateral position (i.e. Left side down). Try the above instructions and if you are not relieved then you can go for the investigations mentioned before. Please feel free to contact me for any additional queries.

Know Eating Which Food Helps You Lose Weight

Know Eating Which Food Helps You Lose Weight

Now there is an irony. Can eating help you lose weight? Yes, it can, if you choose to eat the right thing. A lot of people think this 'right thing' to be bland, tasteless food or food eaten in very small quantities. It is the time we change the myth on it. There are plenty of diets out there that can help you lose weight but doing this without losing your nutrition, energy or mind requires that you choose the right superfoods as your ally. Allies who once come to your territory, stay loyal to their cause without compromising on your tastes. Take a look:

1. Water:
OK. It doesn't count as food but it is a definite ally in your weight loss. Including 10 glasses of water in your daily diet is a great way to start. Drinking water before and after food with a gap time in between is said to be one of the classic weight loss formulas of all time. (Water half an hour before / after breakfast or 1 hour before / after meal but not even a drop in between)

2. Black beans: High in protein and fiber, this superfood will keep you full longer. It can be cooked in a variety of ways to suit local tastes and goes great with any accompaniment like brown bread. It comes as a plus that they aren't very expensive so you can stock on them easily. Crete a beans curry that can be easily topped with some onion and is good to go

3. Trick your taste buds: As such, pureed vegetables may not sound like a highly appetizing option. But add it to a dish you love like pasta or mac and cheese and it'll get gobbled without anyone knowing.

4. Fight belly fat with avocados: That stubborn belly fat is one mean thing to handle. Thankfully, you can now throw some avocados with your breakfast. The mono-saturated fatty acids in Avocados help lessen the belly fat while adding taste to the food.

5. Store some hummus: Old habits die hard. And midnight snacking is one of them. And as much as you cut and store celery sticks attractively, the hand automatically veers towards an unhealthy option unless, of course, you have some hummus handy. The tasty texture of this dish makes it an easy dip or spread making it a ready to eat homemade healthy snack option that doesn't pile on the pounds.

6. Apple cider vinegar: The qualities of this sour drink has almost elevated it to the position of a magical portion. From hair care to weight loss it helps in keeping you fit from inside out. Having two spoons of apple cider vinegar early morning on empty stomach with lukewarm water and there after having it 10 mins before your meal is said to help you lose weight. If the taste is not for you, there are ACV pills available in the market too.

If you are looking for a healthy non-diet option to lose weight and keep it off consult a doctor today.
