Hello doctor,

My 66-year-old mother has been suffering from diabetes for the last 30 years. Her gallbladder has been removed. Angioplasty was done two years back. She had an infection on her scalp and took higher antibiotics for a few months. She is taking Basugine 20 at night, Actrapid 12 in the morning, Rosuvas 10 mg at night, Concor 2.5 mg, Clopitab 75 mg one in the afternoon, and Pantocid 40 mg twice daily. Still, she has pain in her abdomen in her belly button area and above it, and there is a burning sensation continuously. She has to use Cremaffin to pass stool daily. The stool is semi-fluid. She cannot sit for some time due to weakness and sleep after meals. She also takes Enzar Forte after meals in the morning.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

It seems that your mother has acid reflux and pain due to stress.

Stress could be mental, or it could be related to the removal of the gallbladder as well as taking so many medications.

At this point, I recommend starting her on capsule Colospa Retard (Mebeverine) twice daily, half an hour before meals. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with them, and with their consent, take the medicines.

Give it initially for ten days, and then write back to me with the results.

Thank you, doctor,

What is the dosage?
