Question (Posted on :  22 Jun 2009 )


Thanks for the advice but I have already stop controloc a month ago and 3 weeks ago, I have got this index finger pain. What is the diet modification would you recommend in this case. Would you recommend me to seek another doc's opinion on my acid reflux problem. I do not have this earlier but after the panic attack, I was having it for 2months now. How can this be resolved and how long do I need to take ganaton. My current doc suggest me to take for 6months. Do I need to take with empty or full stomach? He said either one is OK, FYI - I am currently taking 1 each x 50mg in the mrg, noon and nite. Hope to hear from you soon and thanks for such a great website.

Thanks for your kind feedback. Ganaton (Itropride) increase gastric motility and reduces the rise in acidity. It has to be taken before food, and may cause irritability and stomach pain in some cases. The dose of 50 mg three times a day is correct. The dosing duration of 6 months is also fine. We are not sure if the pain in index finger is related to acidity.
