A hiatus hernia is the bulging of the stomach into the chest through an esophageal opening in the diaphragm which is larger than the normal size.

Q. Can I take BE with vitamin D?
Yes, vitamin D can be taken with BE. Vitamin D is generally advised to be taken as a supplement with BE as its long-term use decreases the absorption of calcium and cause calcium deficiency.

Q. How is BE useful in the treatment of H. pylori?
BE is used along with antibiotics for the treatment of H.Pylori infection. It works by decreasing stomach acid volume and decreasing breakdown and washout of antibiotics leading to an increased antibiotic concentration and tissue penetration. It also helps in the symptomatic relief by decreasing associated acidity, reflux, and heartburn.
Q. Can I take BE with domperidone?
BE can be safely taken with domperidone as no harmful effects have been reported clinically. A fixed-dose combination of these two medicines is also available. Domperidone increases gut motility and Rabeprazole decreases the acid production in the stomach. So, this combination is very effective in the treatment of reflux esophagitis associated with acidity, heartburn, intestinal and stomach ulcers.
Q. Can long term use of BE cause magnesium deficiency?
Long-term use of BE can lower magnesium levels in patients taking multiple daily doses for a year or longer (at least 3 months). Get your magnesium levels checked at regular intervals.
