Hi eveyone, well after all thats happen to me over the last three weeks, vomiting, diahera, constipation, yellow stools, hot and cold sweats ended up at A&E again, not the ear infection which the gp thought, turns out have a rare syndrome ( name i cant even say) that means i have a looped bowel under my diaphram, they have given me loads of drugs that im not sure what they would do if i carry on with them taken altogether here is the list and would be very happy if anyone has got the same problem and or taken the same medication. omeprazole 20mg 1 daily cefeclor 500mg 1 x twice day metronidazole 400mg 1 x three a day buccastem 3 mg twice a day buscapan three times aday paracetomol four times a day
Going to have ultrascan some time as my gullstones may have also come back which i had 72 small ones 11 years ago,
Hi kaz1999, Some of the medication you listed does not sound familiar to me, may I ask if you live in the UK? I shall attempt to add all of your meds into our Drugs A to Z, at the top bar in blue to see if there are any interactions. Will get back to you soon, IF I can find these meds!
Sorry to hear that you are having these problems. The medicines you are taking are mostly to treat the symptoms and any associated infection. I take omeprazole which is for acid reflux type problems. It will help any acid indigestion you may be experiencing. The cefeclor and the metronidazole are both antibiotics for bacterial type infection. Buccastem though not available in the US has the active ingredient prochlorperazine like you were taking before. This is the one you can't just stop but must taper off when it is time. The buscapan is also not available in the US so I'm guessing it is scopolamine which is for nausea and vomiting. The paracetomal is a mild analgesic for pain. So aside from the two antibiotics the majority of these meds are to treat the symptoms.
Just to forwarn you. Being on two antibiotics may cause you to get a yeast infection. So if you develop any symptoms of itching and discharge you need to treat with an over the counter medicine for such problems.
Just curious as I have never had a looped bowel, what tests did they run to diagnose this problem?osis.
Kaz, I'll be praying for you. I wish I could help you more. Keep in touch,
