I have done endoscopy 2 times in past and the last time I did was around 3 years back.But the last report everything was very much normal. As I said, this has become chronic to me, and I use to take some medicines to get remedy from acidity as and when I get it. But for past few days gas and flatulence has become a headache for me .

Hi,
Try to avoid milk and milk products.
Take Galto thrice a day for flatulence.
Continue taking Nexpro for acidity.

I hope that answers your question.

How long shall I take Galto(I mean number of days) ? And as I said I am very frequently get gas and acidity issues, so Can I keep both Nexpro 40 and Galto with me and as and when I get again these issues, can take it ? If yes, again how long ? And does these medicines have any side effect ?

And doctor last question, I usually get constipation during the time when I suffer from gas and acidity , so do you suggest any other medicine for it or Nexpro and Galto should be enough ?

Thanks in Advance,
Banamali.

Hi,
Take these medications for 4 weeks. They do not have serious side effects. Take a course of these medications when these symptoms recur. But always consult your doctor before taking these medications.
Take high fiber diet and plenty of fluids for relief from constipation.

I hope that answers your question.
