Had nasal cauterized ion on July 2, pain side effects. I took(###) ###-####mugs of IBU during the next several days. Bot***** *****ne, I took too much.
Began having stomach pains and nausea over the next few days and the worst was Friday - massive pains and throwing up bile. Checked into st tom in Nashville. Was proscribed Pepcid and zofran and that's worked. This morning at 5 I woke with pains, so took the two meds. Vomited an hour later. Mild pain now and need to drive home. Can I take another dose?

Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply.

As you took the pepcid & ondasterone few hour back,you cannot take another dosage now.

Pepcid contains famotidine a histamine-2 blockers. Famotidine works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces.

Zofran is a brand name for the drug ondansetron, prescribed to treat or prevent nausea and vomiting.The recommended oral dosage is one 8-mg Zofran Tablet.The 8-mg dose can be taken again 8 hours after the first dose. Then, the dose is 8 mg every 12 hours for 1 to 2 days.

Bot***** *****ne is that there should be at least gap of 8 hours between the 2 dosages.

You can take now Pepto-Bismol 2tsf & also take tab meclizine hydrochloride(brand name: Dramamine).This will help you greatly in stopping the nausea & vomiting.Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help you greatly in nausea & upset stomach symptoms.

Hope this helped.
