How long will I take it for?

Depending on your illness, you may only need to take it for a few weeks or months. Sometimes you might need to take it for longer, even many years. Some people don't need to take Fudermex every day and take it only when they have symptoms. Once you feel better (often after a few days or weeks), you can stop taking it. Taking Fudermex in this way is not suitable for everyone. Discuss with your doctor what is best for you.

Q: Does Fudermex cause weight gain?

A: Prevacid (Fudermex) is a proton pump inhibitor frequently used for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD) and stomach/duodenal ulcers. Most common side effects with Prevacid include diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and constipation. Additional side effects with Prevacid occurring in less than 1% of patients include weight gain, weight loss, anorexia, and increased appetite. These are not all the possible side effects of Prevacid. For a complete list, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

How it works

Fudermex belongs to a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

Fudermex works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in your stomach. It does this by blocking the proton pump in the cells of your stomach. The proton pump works in the final step of acid production. When the proton pump is blocked, your stomach makes less acid. This helps to decrease your symptoms.

Fudermex oral capsule doesn’t cause drowsiness, but it can cause other side effects.

Liquid Fudermex

Liquid Fudermex can be prescribed and made to order for children and people who cannot swallow capsules or tablets. It will come with a syringe or spoon to help you take the right amount. If you don't have a syringe or spoon, ask your pharmacist for one. Do not use a kitchen teaspoon as it will not give the right amount.

Fudermex reduces the amount of acid produced in your stomach.

Take your doses 30 minutes before breakfast when your stomach is empty. If you are asked to take two doses daily, take your first dose 30 minutes before breakfast and your second dose in the evening.

The most common side-effects are stomach upset and headache. These effects are generally mild and do not last long.

Q: Are there any other medications you can take along with Prevacid for reflux when the Prevacid is not working as well?

A: Prevacid (Fudermex) decreases the amount of acid the stomach produces. It belongs to the class of drugs known as proton-pump inhibitors (or PPIs). The two other major classes of drugs used for reflux are histamine blockers (also called H2 blockers) and antacids. These drugs all work to reduce stomach acid, with the PPIs having the greatest effect. There are several possible reasons for the lack of effect from Prevacid. Have any new medications been added to your daily routine? Some medications can cause problems that make the symptoms of reflux worse by weakening the esophageal sphincter, increasing inflammation, or slowing digestion. It is also possible that you have an infection in your gastrointestinal tract. The bacteria, H. pyLori Mendoza, PharmD, is often associated with reflux. As recommended by the American College of Gastroenterology, the treatment to get rid of H. pyLori Mendoza, PharmD infection includes a PPI and two antibiotics. Please consult with your health care provider who understands your full medical condition for more information about these possibilities and appropriate treatment for you. Other ways to help reduce reflux and its symptoms include eating smaller meals more frequently, not eating for two hours before bedtime, and avoiding fatty foods, alcohol, caffeine, and peppermint.

How to use Fudermex

Read the Medication Guide and the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking Fudermex and each time you get a refill.

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once daily, before a meal. If you are self-treating, follow all directions on the product package. Dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Children's dosage is also based on age and weight. Do not increase your dose or take this drug more often than directed. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not crush or chew the capsules. Swallow the medication whole. If you have trouble swallowing the capsule, you may open the capsule and sprinkle its contents on a spoonful of soft food (such as applesauce, cottage cheese, yogurt) and swallow the mixture right away without chewing it. Or you may empty the capsule's contents into a small amount (2 ounces or 60 milliliters) of juice, stir, and drink the mixture right away without chewing it. Then rinse the glass with more juice and drink to make sure you have taken the entire dose. Do not prepare the mixture ahead of time for later use. Doing so may destroy the drug.

If you are giving this medication through a tube into the stomach (nasogastric tube), ask your health care professional for detailed instructions on how to properly mix and give it.

If needed, antacids may be taken along with this medication. If you are also taking sucralfate, take Fudermex at least 30 minutes before sucralfate.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Continue to take this medication for the prescribed length of treatment even if you are feeling better. If you are self-treating with the over-the-counter product, do not take it for more than 14 days unless directed by your doctor.

Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens. If you are self-treating, tell your doctor if your heartburn persists after 14 days or if you need to use this medication more than once every 4 months. The risk of side effects goes up over time. Ask your doctor how long you should take this medication. If you think you may have a serious medical problem, get medical help right away.

Contraindications

  • Hypersensitivity to Fudermex or other proton pump inhibitors

Effects of Drug Abuse

  • See "What Are Side Effects Associated with Using Fudermex?"

  • Published observational studies suggest that proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy may be associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist, or spine, particularly with prolonged (greater than 1 year), high-dose therapy
  • Hypomagnesemia may occur with prolonged use (i.e., greater than 1 year); adverse effects may result and include tetany, arrhythmias, and seizures; in 25% of cases reviewed, magnesium supplementation alone did not improve low serum magnesium levels and the PPI had to be discontinued
  • Daily long-term use (e.g., longer than 3 years) may lead to malabsorption or a deficiency of cyanocobalamin
  • See "What Are Side Effects Associated with Using Fudermex?"

  • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are possibly associated with increased incidence of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD); consider diagnosis of CDAD for patients taking PPIs who have diarrhea that does not improve
  • Liver disease may require dosage reduction
  • Cutaneouslupus erythematosus (CLE) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) reported with PPIs; avoid using for longer than medically indicated; discontinue if signs or symptoms consistent with CLE or SLE are observed and refer patient to specialist
  • Published observational studies suggest that proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy may be associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist, or spine, particularly with prolonged (greater than 1 year), high-dose therapy
  • Decreased gastric acidity increases serum chromogranin A (CgA) levels and may cause false-positive diagnostic results for neuroendocrine tumors; temporarily discontinue PPIs before assessing CgA levels
  • Hypomagnesemia may occur with prolonged use (i.e., greater than 1 year); adverse effects may result and include tetany, arrhythmias, and seizures; in 25% of cases reviewed, magnesium supplementation alone did not improve low serum magnesium levels and the PPI had to be discontinued
  • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may decrease the efficacy of clopidogrel by reducing the formation of the active metabolite
  • Relief of symptoms does not eliminate the possibility of a gastric malignancy
  • Therapy increases risk of Salmonella, Campylobacter, and other infections
  • Acuteinterstitialnephritis reported in patients taking proton pump inhibitors
  • Daily long-term use (e.g., longer than 3 years) may lead to malabsorption or a deficiency of cyanocobalamin
  • May elevate and/or prolong serum concentrations of methotrexate and/or its metabolite when administered concomitantly with PPIs, possibly leading to toxicity; consider a temporary withdrawal of PPI therapy with high dose methotrexate administration

  • Fudermex may be acceptable for use during pregnancy
  • Either animal studies show no risk but human studies are not available or animal studies showed minor risks and human studies were done and showed no risk

    6. How to cope with s >

    What to do about:

    • headaches - make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Do not drink too much alcohol. Ask your pharmacist to recommend a painkiller. Headaches should usually go away after the first week of taking Fudermex. Talk to your doctor if they last longer than a week or are severe.
    • feeling sick - it may help if you don't eat rich or spicy food while you're taking Fudermex.
    • diarrhoea or being sick (vomiting) - drink plenty of water by having small, frequent sips to avoid dehydration. Signs of dehydration include peeing less than usual or having strong-smelling pee. Do not take any other medicines to treat diarrhoea or vomiting without speaking to a pharmacist or doctor.
    • stomach pain - try to rest and relax. It can help to eat and drink slowly and have smaller and more frequent meals. Putting a heat pad or covered hot water bottle on your stomach may also help. If you are in a lot of pain, speak to your pharmacist or doctor.
    • constipation - eat more high-fibre foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables and cereals, and drink plenty of water. Try to exercise more regularly, for example, by going for a daily walk or run. If this doesn't help, talk to your pharmacist or doctor.
    • wind - steer clear of foods that cause wind like lentils, peas, beans and onions. It might also help to eat smaller and more frequent meals, eat and drink slowly, and exercise regularly. Some pharmacy remedies, such as simethicone, may help relieve the symptoms of wind.
    • itchy skin rashes - it may help to take an antihistamine which you can buy from a pharmacy. Check with the pharmacist to see what type is suitable for you.
    • feeling dizzy or tired - if Fudermex makes you feel dizzy or tired, stop what you're doing and sit or lie down until you feel better. Do not drive or use tools or machinery if you're feeling tired. Do not drink alcohol as it will make you feel worse.
    • dry mouth or throat - chew sugar-free gum or sugar-free sweets.
