Practically yes you can use lancet multiple times of you are using for same person considering usage is on same day or within couple of days. Repeated usage of same lancet for same person increases risk of infection. Lancet need to be changed each time if you are using for multiple patients.

I'm using Pylokit consisting of lansoprazole, clarithromycin and tinidazole for treatment of H.pylori infection however I am also a PKD patient. I found out that lansoprazole is a kidney toxic drug, so please advise me a better substitute. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, hi Welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* The Pylokit is for 7 - 14 days, in that consumption it is not going to alter any of the renal functions, in PKD patients, lansoprazole on long term basis is causing issues only. Hope this clears your query. Regards dear take care.

I'm a 25-year-old man who has been suffering from stomach pain for over a month. When the pain began, I went to the doctor, who prescribed lansoprazole 15 mg. I took them for a week, but the discomfort worsened and didn't seem to go away. I went to the hospital and was prescribed lansoprazole 30 mg, which I took for three weeks with no change. I returned to the hospital, and this time I have prescribed amoxicillin, anaerobyl, and lansoprazole again. I've been taking these tablets for five days and have yet to see any difference. What can I do to relieve the burning pain in my stomach?

What r other symptoms that you r experiencing? By doing what like walking, exertion, eating or empty stomach- it increases or decreases in intensity. For how much time the pain remains? Is there stiffness also? How is your appetite? R you constipated? Any problem in urine? I need to know more to be able to make diagnosis. In the meanwhile follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water.10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gym etc. Till lockdown do suryanamaskar every day. for this homeopathy offers good results. Consult online with details.

Avoid all junk food. Eat less oily & less spicy food items. Drink water around 15-20 mins before having food. Take divol-la 10 ml thrice daily after food alongside lansoprazole, which you'll need to continue for 6-8 weeks.

My mother is a case of esophageal cancer and I am diagnosed with h.pylori. Infection only on the basis of rapid blood test. No biopsy could be done due to swelling in my oesophagus, and after having medicines i. E lansoprazole, clarithromycin and tinidazole, no improvement is noticed. Need I go for biopsy of easophaegas. Please help.

Have you tried changing your diet along with the medication? Are there any other symptoms you are experiencing? H pylori usually causes gastritis and ulceration. In most cases, taking antacids helps with the symptoms. Long term unhealed ulcers may shape up to become cancerous. Having an endoscopy done and if required a biopsy is not harmful.

Taking thyroxine 100 mg daily in the morning. I am taking one lansoprazole cap 10 mg on alternate days before food for hiatus hernia. Not having any ill effect due to reduced low pulse rate. What is the cause of this anomaly? Should I take any medication?

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Pulse rate of 55 to 65 per minute is absolutely normal. I do not understand why you have felt this as a problem. In healthy and fit individuals, more so who are regularly doing exercise or involved in some sports activities, pulse rate at rest is usually low. That only shows that the heart has extra capacity to supply more blood if needed in strenuous activity. However, it is better if BP is maintained around 130/ 80 mm Hg. Any idea what is the TSH level? If you are feeling fine there is no reason to worry. Thanks.
