The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Nausea
    You can help yourself by eating small, frequent meals rather than large ones and drinking plenty of fluids. Eat slowly. Avoid fatty, fried, spicy and very sweet foods. Eat cold or slightly warm food if the smell of cooked or cooking food makes you feel sick. Get plenty of fresh air. You could also try chewing ginger or drinking ginger tea. Eat bananas to replace potassium in your blood which can drop if you are sick (vomit). Use oral rehydration salts to replace vitamins and minerals lost through being sick. There are some medicines that can help you stop from feeling sick. Speak to your doctor if your condition does not improve.
  • Coping with Upset stomach
    Try taking your medicine with a meal or snack, or shortly after eating. It might help to eat smaller and more frequent meals, and to eat and drink slowly. Avoid foods which can irritate your stomach such as carbonated soft drinks, caffeine, fatty and spicy foods, mints and citrus fruits. Quit smoking and alcohol because they increase the symptoms. Do not eat for 3 or 4 hours before going to bed. Try raising the head of your bed at night or use extra pillows. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about medicines that may help, such as antacids, if your condition does not improve.
  • Coping with Heartburn

Ask your doctor about medicines to treat this condition such as antacids. Do not lie down immediately after eating and wait for at least three hours before lying down after a meal. Raise the head of your bed. Talk to your doctor if your condition does not improve, they may be able to reduce the dosage or switch you to another medicine.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Does Cartigen actually work in joint pain?

The evidence on the effectiveness of Cartigen in reducing pain is controversial. Some patients report that Cartigen has helped reduce arthritis pain, stiffness, and mild to moderate osteoarthritis pain. In fact, there is some evidence that Cartigen has beneficial effects on the cartilage by slowing down the cartilage breakdown in the joints.

Q. Can Cartigen cause liver damage?

In research studies, Cartigen has not been found to raise the liver enzymes or cause any damage. However, there are few recent reports of liver injury while using the products containing Cartigen. The chances of liver injury are more if the patient has been suffering from chronic liver disease.

Q. Is Cartigen bad for kidneys?

The effect of Cartigen on kidneys is not confirmatory. Cartigen is mostly metabolized and broken down by the liver. However, there are some reports of kidney damage caused due to Cartigen, but there is a lack of conclusive evidence. Therefore, it should be used with caution in patients with kidney damage and kidney function should be regularly monitored. Do consult your doctor before you start using this medication. Also, inform your doctor if you have any kidney disease.

Q. What are the precautions I should follow while taking Cartigen?

Do consult your doctor before you start taking this medication and ensure to be cautious if you have diabetes or high blood glucose levels, high risk of heart disease or asthma. You should also be cautious if you are allergic to shellfish or are taking blood-thinning medicines like warfarin. Do tell your doctor if you have any of the above conditions before he prescribes you this medication.

Q. Is it safe to take Cartigen while taking blood-thinning medication?

No, it is not safe to take Cartigen while taking blood-thinning medications like warfarin or coumadin. The reason being, this medication interacts with the blood thinners and boosts the effect of the blood-thinning medication, thereby reducing the blood’s ability to form a clot in case of bleeding episodes. Therefore, patients taking any blood-thinning medicine should consult their doctor before starting this medication.
