Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.This could be a side effect of the medications you are taking. Talking to a Doctor about this should help you reach a better drug regimen.Another cause can be simply gastritis or gastric problems. If you have these, please take 20 ml of Pepto-Bismol syrup 3 to 4 times a day. This will help you to reduce the amount of problems you are having.If you do not feel better after 2 days, please see a Doctor. Hope this helps you. All the best.
