Doctor :   Hi,

User :   yes, we talked a little while ago
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Yes?
Doctor :   Yes, please proceed
User :   Please fefer to the symptoms above, she says her stomach feels better b ut still has a headache; she has taken 2 tylenol tabs; pharmacist doesn't know what Mucaine is, she looked it up on the computer but found nothing called Mucaine
Doctor :   Oh, then instead of Mucain you can give her a tb of Prilosac OTC
Doctor :   both of them are acid reducers
User :   OK, so this is still a question of hyperacidity and not some other more dangerous kind of food poisoning, right?
Doctor :   No,
Doctor :   Is the headache more severe ?
User :   no
Doctor :   Is there any altered sensorium ?
User :   no
Doctor :   Then i would still relate her problems to hyperacidity
User :   Ok, that's a relief
Doctor :   Its better to give her juices of fruits like grapes, apple or orange in wide spaced sips
User :   Ok, anything else? Stay away from solid food?
Doctor :   a tea spoon of honey in a glass of water also helps
User :   Sounds like it should, thanks
Doctor :   Yes, i agree avoid solid foods for at least 12 hours or till she feels better
User :   ok
Doctor :   But don't forget to give her Prilosac OTC
User :   Ok, I'll get some right away
Doctor :   Good,
User :   Thank you, 'bye
