What is Watson 795?
Dicyclomine, sometimes known as Watson 795, is a drug used for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. Its main purpose is to reduce the symptoms related to stomach cramping. It does this by slowing down the speed at which the gut works. Watson 795 is one of the more commonly prescribed drugs for irritable bowel syndrome.
How to Take
How you take your Watson 795 will be dependent on your condition. It is important that you listen to what your doctor recommends. Generally speaking, it is a drug that you are going to need to take four times per day. It will be taken just before meals and when you fall asleep. The dosage will vary. It does take a while to get used to taking Watson 795. As a result, your doctor may start you on a smaller dosage and you will gradually work your way up from there.
You should never ‘up’ your dosage without telling your doctor first. If you feel as if the drug is not working, then tell your doctor and they will be able to provide you with a solution. This does, often, mean that your dosage will be upped, but it is still important that your doctor says that you do.
You should not take Watson 795 with
It is important that you do not take this medication alongside antacid. This is because antacids can drastically reduce how effective the Watson 795 is. When you are first prescribed this medication, it is important that you tell your doctor if you are taking any other forms of medication. It is rare for there to be any conflict with any other type of medicine, but it is probably still going to be worth talking to your doctor about, just to make ‘doubly sure’.
Medications which normally conflict with Watson 795 are those which require normal gut movement. This includes potassium tablets and pramlintide. You may still be able to take other drugs, but you may need to take them at slightly different times to reduce the chance of a conflict.
There are a few side effects related to Watson 795. It is important that you talk to your doctor if these symptoms persist or get worse. The most common ones are:
– Blurred vision
– Dry eyes
– Dry mouth
– Abdominal bloating
If you do suffer from side effects, then your doctor may suggest that you try and deal with them the best that you can, particularly if the side effects are minor e.g. if you are suffering from a dry mouth. However, as we stated previously, it is still important that you talk to your doctor as they will have the final say on how you should proceed.
If you have an allergic reaction which is, thankfully, very rare then it is important that you seek immediate medication attention. This includes rashes, itching and swelling, serious dizziness or trouble breathing.
What Is Watson 385?
Hydrocodone, often known as Watson 385, is an opioid pain medication. It is designed for those who are suffering from severe pain. It is not your standard painkiller. You should not be taking Watson 385 in a bid to eradicate minor pain from time to time. It is a medication that is used for dealing with severe and chronic pain. This is due to the way in which they work.
How to Take
You should take your Watson 385 as directed by your doctor. This will all be dependent on the severity of your pain. Unlike other painkillers out there, there will be no need to take this drug with food. However, it is worth noting that some people may suffer from nausea when they take the drug. If this happens to you regularly, then food may actually help you out.
It is important that you do not increase your dosage of this drug. Your doctor will have carefully selected your dosage based on your weight as well as the condition that you are suffering from. If you genuinely believe that the Watson 385 is not having an impact on your pain, then it is important that you talk to your doctor. They will be able to determine whether you do need to up your dosage or whether another painkiller will work.
It is important to note that Watson 385 is generally not prescribed over longer periods of time. This is because your body will start to become used to the drug. This means that the drug will become less effective. If you believe that the drug is no longer working as well as it did in the past, this is something that you are going to need to talk to your doctor about. They will be able to provide assistance.
It is likely that you will suffer from one of these symptoms:
It is worth noting that many of these symptoms will cease to occur once you have been taking the drug for a while. However, if you feel as if they are getting worse or they are continuing for far too long, it is important that you talk to your doctor. It is important that if you do vomit, you do not take the drug again until the next ‘scheduled’ dosage. You will be rising an overdose if that is the case.
If you are suffering from one of these symptoms (which is rare), then it is important that you seek medical help right away:
– Shallow breathing
– Slow breathing
– Difficult to wake up
While it is very rare that you will suffer from an allergic reaction when you are dealing with Watson 385, the possibility is there. If you notice rashes, itching, swelling, or you have difficulty breathing then it is important that you head to the emergency room immediately.
