Gastrointestinal problems usually occurs with antibiotics.
You better take an antacid before it.

Taking antibiotics with cold milk as it will be beneficial to you.

I have read your problem. Sometimes, antibiotics, anti-inflamatory drugs (NSAIDS)can cause gastritis.Not to worry about it. You can take antacid in liquid form or in tab. form. stomach pain due to gastritis.You can take omeprazol or pantaprazol for better relief from gastritis. also take healthy diet.Don't leave your stomach empty.

Have a nice time.. take care

Thanks for asking the query,

Abdominal upset can occur due to the use of antibiotics prescribed to you.
Take an antacid half hour before meal along with the antibiotics and analgesics.
If the antibiotics are not suiting you can consult the Dentist and get the prescription changed.
If you are having severe stomach pain it can be due to some systemic conditions i would encourage you to visit to an Gasteroenterologist and get the checkup done.

Hope this helps out.

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

It has been seen that B complex causes mild gastritis but Rantac is the medicine for gastritis.

please note that you have mentioned about stomach pain.this could be the cause for gastritis.

Gastritis develops whenever there is excessive acid secretion in your can lead to various ulcers and tumours in the stomach.

Therefore in my view please meet your gastroenterologist.

Hope it helps.


Take care.

Usually B complex is not a causative factor for gastritis.Analgesics (NSAIDS)causes gastritis so try to avoid NSAIDS.If you feels pain,take plain paracetamol along with gel sucral fat .Some times there is a need to change antibiotics also.
