    Try taking it with a rich food each time. Whatever you do, DO NOT take a stomach tablet with it! :eek: (Ranitidine, famotidine, etc.).

    Nice to hear that other people like to travel light. Some of the lists people post online for things to take into the park with you remind me of backpacking on the Appalachian trail. I'm fairly certain 'Frontier Land' wasn't literally a frontier. :wink:

    I'll have to try that. I usually try to eat bread or something similar and that never works. Thankfully, I do not have any stomach issues.

    It's the fat or oil that helps. Slows down the absorption, and does a bit of neutralizing of the stomach acid. It doesn't work for everyone though, and some folks just can't take it.

    I used to take Excedrin. It worked like a charm. Now? It's like I swallowed a fireball.

    Why shouldn't you take both :unsure: Chris was told by the doctor to take a ranitidine at the same time he takes a diclofenac or ibuprofen.

    There have been studies done here that show support for blowing out stomachs (developing ulcers, internal bleeding, etc) when doing that. The stomach med stops the acid, and changes the digestive process which in turn allows the ibuprofen to "eat" at the lining.

    I actually knew someone who ended up in the hospital with a stomach bleed because of it. :(

    Wow, how the so doctors vary in countries. Chris was told that it stopped him getting a bleed by taking them at the same time. I think I will make him stop after reading what you've said Tink :( thank you.

    It is very odd, the exact opposite between the countries for some medical advice.

    Another one that I find extremely interesting is the difference in diagnosing mental illnesses. Schizophrenia as diagnosed here is usually diagnosed as BiPolar disease in the UK. VERY different sets of criteria for those two illnesses!

    Please don't have Chris change his health routine without his physician's approval. He could tell him that he's heard of the studies...

    Count me on the front end of this post :wave:

    We typically carry 2 backpacks into the parks. 1 is an old Princess one and that is our "diaper bag" that always stays with the stroller (even when we leave it for a ride). It has diapers, wipes, extra clothes for each kid and that type of thing. It is full of things that we need (Marc was in diapers last trip), but are easily replaced if we needed to. Nobody ever touched that bag.

    Then I carry my backpack! For this trip I picked up an organizing backpack from 31, and I am pretty excited about it! It has all these little pockets and zippers and totally feeds my OCD :D I carry the medical supplies, change for squished pennies, camera and camcorder, ponchos, tickets, money, snacks, sunscreen and whatever else we think we might need for the day. This bag stays with me at all times :yes:
