Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

Yes, pill can cause stomach ache. Because of increased acid secretion or gastric irritation. It is a common side effect seen in women taking pills.

You can take pantoprazole group of anti acidic agent to decrease the acidity. It will definitely give relief.

If pain increases, you can consult with your treating doctor for clinical examination to rule out any other possibilities.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,
Thank you for writing back.

So, you are using buscopan or paracetamol. Those can also lead to this type of stomach ache. You must have to take the pantoprazole group of drug immediately. Take it in empty stomach for a minimum period of 15 days.

One more point is to avoid the paracetamol or buscopan as much as you can.
