The full evidence report from which this summary was derived was prepared for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality by the McMaster University Evidence-based Practice Center under contract No. 290-97-0017. It is expected to be available by mid-2000. At that time, printed copies may be obtained free of charge from the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse by calling 800-358-9295. Requestors should ask for Evidence Report/Technology Assessment No. 23, Criteria for Weaning From Mechanical Ventilation (AHRQ Publication No. 00-E029). When available, Internet users will be able to access the report online through AHRQ's Web site ( http:///clinic/ ) and in the National Library of Medicine's HSTAT collection: http:///ftrs/?collect=epc&dbName=ventsum .
5mg a day was too much and he was having bad side effects, extreme lethargy, he stopped eating,and drinking and his diarrhea actually got worse. Half a pill ever other day was not enough his stool was normal the first day then back to diarrhea the second. Half a pill mg a day seems to be the formula that works for him. He tolerates it well,and his stool remains normal. Mischief is much more active and healthy now,and is actually gaining weight. I am very pleased. Like I said I think it saved his life. Also the drug is very inexpensive $10 bucks a month
Hello Saud Kadir! Thank you for reading and your question. I too had GERD at a young age and wish you the best on your road to recovery. There are many different treatment options for GERD. Lifestyle and diet changes (see those in this post) are typically required to eliminate GERD. Medications are necessary at times in the treatment process. Your doctor knows your medical conditions and is the best person to consult conserning treatment. How To Treat Heartburn has many articles that may help you better understand your condition. Please discuss the treatment options in the posts to determine with options might be of benefit in your situation. Best! ~ Steve
