Hi doctor,

I was diagnosed with erosive gastritis two years back and my latest endoscopy shows that it has been completely treated. But over the course of taking PPI, I noticed undigested stool and a feel of bloating even after taking medication. My doctor prescribed Sibofix, Darolac and Normaxin for a month as he said it might be a case of IBS. But, I do not have diarrhea, stomach pain or anything. It is just gas irrespective of empty stomach or after eating. I belch all the time. My endoscopy, stool culture, blood test, T3, T4, TSH, BP and sugar were normal. Can I take Normaxin for two more months as it helps a bit? Please advice regarding my situation. It would be a tremendous help. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understood your problem.

  • You can try tablet Esomac L (Esomeprazole) one tablet once daily before food for a month.
  • Also, take tablet Normaxin (combination of Chlordiazepoxide and Clidinium) one tablet twice daily after food for a month.
  • Please discontinue Sibofix (Rifaximin) and Darolac (Lactic acid).

Investigations to be done:

CBC (complete blood count) and LFT (liver function tests).

Probable diagnosis:

Dyspepsia (indigestion).

Preventive measures:

1. Avoid spicy food, cabbage, cauliflower and salad.
2. Avoid stress.

Hi doctor,

Normaxin really helped and my stomach problems were relieved. But after discontinuation, I have cramps, gas, mild pain, feeling of incomplete evacuation with moderate constipation. I take Esomac daily. What to do?
