Dyspepsia is a condition that causes pain and uncomfortable fullness in the upper part of the belly. There are many treatments which can be helpful for dyspepsia. No single therapy works in all patients with dyspepsia. It is common for patients to try several medications before finding one that works. If a person tries over the counter remedies and doesn’t improve or if they have worsening symptoms, vomiting, gastrointestinal bleeding or unexplained weight loss, they should have an informed discussion with their doctor to develop an effective treatment plan.
FDgard can help reduce abdominal pain in people with dyspepsia. It works by delivering caraway oil and peppermint oil directly to the upper belly (i.e., stomach and upper part of the small intestine). This helps to relax the stomach and upper intestines which can help with symptoms.
