Almost everyone has experienced or is experiencing digestive problems. A lot of pharmaceuticals have been developed, stopping the symptoms and improving the condition. The most common among them are festal and mezim.
The principle of action of drugs is similar. We still prefer a particular one. Why? It all depends on individual tolerance. Also on the choice of funds can affect the current state, for example, pregnancy.
"The stomach can't - the festal will help!"
Available in tablets (pills). Composed of:
- bovine bile extract;
- sodium chloride and a number of excipients.
It can be used to restore the functions of the intestine, in case of a disturbed diet, for therapeutic and prophylactic purposes from stomach pathologies. The main objective of the drug is to stimulate the natural production of gastrointestinal enzymes and bile.
Like many pharmaceuticals, festal has an appointment and a number of contraindications. Frequently asked question: is it possible to take festal during pregnancy?
Doctors say that festal during pregnancy is acceptable, but you should definitely get "good" from the doctor, do not overdo it with the dosage, do not get addicted.
With persistent digestive disorders, you can drink 1-2 tablets immediately after a meal. In the treatment and prophylactic purposes as a replacement therapy is prescribed for gastrointestinal tract pathologies, after surgery, the elderly.
It is not recommended to use festal for people with chronic or acute pancreatitis, obstructive jaundice, complex liver diseases, and intestinal obstruction. Individual intolerance to the components is one of the most important aspects of refusing medications.
Irina, 40 years old: "After one unpleasant story, the festal is always at my fingertips. Any feast, any food in dry food, a change of the usual diet (on vacation) - miracle pills help to cope with any gastronomic burden."
Svetlana, 35 years old: "I know about the festal since childhood, it has always been in the home first-aid kit. Two clear advantages - efficiency and low cost - speak in favor of this drug. Especially along with the more expensive (brand) counterparts."
"Mezim - stomach is good with him!"
Reviews about mezime are also mostly positive. The tool has composition and properties similar to festal. Complaints about the high cost of medication, it seems to us, are not justified, because it turns out that when recalculating the number of tablets in a package.
In addition to pancreatin, pancreatic enzymes are present in the mezime among the active substances:
Indications for use and contraindications of mezime
You can when:
- chronic pancreatitis;
- gastritis, enteritis, ulcers;
- Gastrointestinal disorders.
The drug is prescribed after surgery and before endoscopy.
Not worth it if:
- chronic and acute pancreatitis;
Mezim during pregnancy, in principle, can be taken. This is written in black and white in the instruction leaflet. But mezim during pregnancy, like other drugs, you need to take carefully, be sure to consult with the gynecologist. The drug will help fill the deficit of natural pancreatic enzymes. However, pregnancy is a condition where it is difficult to judge the safety of commonly used drugs.
Reviews of the drug mezim
Alena, 54 years old: "This is not dietary supplements, you should not accustom the body to the drug. Mezim is perfect as a" lifeline "in specific cases."
Sergey, 41 years old: "I have gastritis, sometimes even a normal dinner is given by the weight in the stomach, heartburn, pain. Two mezime tablets are a joyful relief from problems without side effects."
Important: you should not engage in self-treatment and read mezim or festal without prescription. A qualified approach to the choice of substitution therapy will help to avoid problems.
