Popular Questions & Answers

I am 40 years old with apparently no disease. I have allergic cough but the doctor diagnosed it as GERD and I took raciper plus for 5 months. On stopping the medicine I had nausea and I was irritable with lack of concentration. Another doctor then prescribed me neopride 25 mg and mirtaz 14 mg which I took for 8 months. Now I stopped taking these but again I am having a feeling of nausea, dry mouth and irritability. All these symptoms are relieved by neopride but I don't want to take it. Please suggest what should I do for relief and how long will it take to cure.

Continue the raciper and neopride for a month, then stop neopride and continue raciper Take raciper in the morning 30 min before breakfast for best results If you are not satisfied with your motions please also take isphagul 2 tablespoons with one large glass of water at night daily for at least two months Keep a gap of at lease 2-3 hrs between dinner and sleep Eat slightly smaller meals, and maybe more frequently. Do not sleep on your right side at night.
