Q. What is Pexel used for?

It may also cause muscle twitches, shakiness, and an irregular heartbeat. Inform your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. In addition, if Pexel is used for more than a year, you may have increased chances of certain side effects such as bone fractures, gut infections, and vitamin B12 deficiency. With vitamin B12 deficiency you may develop symptoms such as feeling very tired, sore and red tongue, mouth ulcers, and pins and needles.
Q. Does Pexel cause weight gain?

Yes, Pexel is relatively safe. Most of the people who take Pexel do not get a side effect. It is advised to be taken as directed by the doctor for maximum benefits.
Q. Can I take Pexel for long term?
Long term treatment with Pexel should be taken only if prescribed by the doctor.
Q. How long does it take for Pexel to work?
You should start to feel better within 2 to 3 days. It may take up to 4 weeks for Pexel to work properly so you may still have some symptoms during this time.

Q. Is single dose of Pexel sufficient?
No, single dose of Pexel is not sufficient. You should take it for at least 2 weeks, if taking on your own, for heartburn or acid reflux. Whereas, if you are to take it for stomach ulcers or ZE syndrome consult your doctor for duration of treatment.
Q. Can I stop taking Pexel if I feel better?
No,do not stop taking Pexel or change the dosage without consulting your doctor.
