Indigestion Medications

Definition of Indigestion:

Dyspepsia means "bad digestion" and is commonly known as indigestion. Dyspepsia affects as much as 1/4 of the adult population in the U.S. and is responsible for a significant number of doctor visits. Dyspepsia has many possible causes- some easily diagnosed and others difficult to define. Dyspepsia is persistent or recurring abdominal pain that's centered in the upper abdomen and that lasts more than four weeks. People with dyspepsia also may experience bloating, nausea, burping and a feeling of fullness that occurs soon after eating. Symptoms usually develop after meals.
