Introduction to Jocid-O Suspension

Jocid-O Suspension is typically prescribed for treating and managing various gastrointestinal issues, such as ulcers in the stomach and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), and relief from associated symptoms like pain or discomfort.

Sucralfate is an anti-ulcer medication that forms a protective layer over the ulcer, shielding it from stomach acid and allowing it to heal. Oxetacaine/Oxethazaine belongs to the class of local anesthetics and acts by numbing or reducing the sensation of pain in the affected area.

It's usually recommended to take this medicine on an empty stomach, 1 hour before meals and at bedtime for best results. Avoid taking any other medications within 2 hours of taking sucralfate, as it can interfere with their absorption.

Patients prescribed it should adhere to their healthcare provider's recommendations regarding dosage and duration of treatment.
It is crucial to report any persistent symptoms or adverse effects promptly.

The most common side effects are constipation, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, insomnia, and allergic reactions. These are temporary and usually resolve with time. Contact your doctor straight away if you are at all concerned about any side effects. To overcome constipation, you should add fiber-rich foods in your diet and stay hydrated. It may also cause dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. Avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine as it can worsen your sleepiness. Lifestyle modifications like having cold milk and avoiding hot tea, coffee, spicy food, or chocolate can help you to get better results.

Before taking this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy, or breastfeeding. You should also tell your doctor if you have any liver diseases so that your doctor can prescribe a suitable dose for you.
