Brief Answer: Need more info Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the query. Bleeding from the anus could be due to several reasons, in order to come to a better conclusion I will need a little more information. 1. Does it pain when passing passing stools? 2. Do you have difficulty ( constipation) in passing of stools? 3. Was the blood bright red or dark red in color? 4. Please mention the medications you are on ( if anY) 5. Has this occurred before? Please get back to me. I am awaiting your reply, Regards,

Brief Answer: Upper Gastro intestinal bleed Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the quick reply From the history you have given and the fact that there was very minimal bleed associated with bloating of the stomach I think the bleeding could be due to a small duodenal ulcer. It is a common side effect of being on cortef Here are my suggestions 1. Tab Pantoprazole to be taken twice daily before food 2. Avoid spicy food 3. Eat smaller meals several times a day 4. Drink Atleast 5 glasses of water a day If the bleeding persists please approach a gastroenterologist for an endoscopy to confirm the diagnoses I hope I was of help Regards

I looked ip pantoprazole and it appears to be a perscription drug. Am i correct?

Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the reply Here in our state it is an over the counter drug. I am not sure about yours but it should be an OTC drug as it is very safe to consume the drug and it has a good safety profile. Please find out from the pharmacy. I am sorry for the short delay in my reply, I just got back from the hospital regards
