    I do not exactly know why I am on this medicine. I was dignosed with IC about 3 weeks ago and the dr. put me on this medicine also. I think it was to cut down on the acid that may have built up in my bladder. if that was the case then it has seemed to help. I take elminrod also and i can see a difference in my pelvic pain!

    I have infiltrating lobular carcinoma breast cancer. I am currently undergoing chemothrapy and have a lot of heartburn. This drug has been effective in treating the heartburn and I occassionally use tums in between. I did not know it could interfere with absorbsion of tagamet and this was very helpful. I will be more careful if the heartburn gets severe and I need tums in between doses.

    I take 1 to 2 600mg.a day as prescribed by my doctor. I recently tried Nexus for 2 weeks and found it worked even better, but at $3.00 a pill can't afford it, I have a Canadian Drug Plan but the Government will not approve this med.

    You have to be very careful with dosing. Here is a quote from wikipedia regarding the two substances in black seed oil that can be a dangerous side effect if taken too much. Anything more than 2 tspn per day is toxic. "Nigella sativa oil (black cumin seed oil) contains nigellone, which protects guinea pigs from histamine-induced bronchial spasms[6] (perhaps explaining its use to relieve the symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and coughing). The presence of the sterol beta-sitosterol lends credence to its traditional use to treat abscesses and tumors of the abdomen, eyes, and liver.[7] N. sativa oil has been reported to be effective in treating opioid dependence.[8] N. sativa also has been reported to reduce calculi formation in rats' kidneys.[9] The oil contains melanthin, nigilline, damascene and tannins. Melanthin is toxic in large doses and nigelline is paralytic, so this spice must be used in moderation"
