Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: How long is the usual course of medication?

A: While the duration for which the Meditin Injection is prescribed varies from person to person based on their condition, it usually starts showing its effect almost immediately.

Q: What is acid reflux?

A: There is a valve-like structure called the sphincter between the food pipe and stomach. This valve prevents the acid and the food in your stomach from coming back into the food pipe. When this valve is weak or damaged, acid starts entering the stomach causing heartburn, difficulty in swallowing and food regurgitation.

Q: Can I reduce my acidity problem by changing my lifestyle habits?

  • Avoid lying down for three hours after a meal.
  • Reduce excess weight.
  • Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to avoid pressure on your abdomen.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Avoid sugar, processed food, meat, sodas, a high protein diet, etc.
