to prevent reactions with other medications, you should allow ___ ______ between antacid administration and the administration of other medications 1 hour
these antacids are slow acting, contain significant amounts of sodium, and commonly cause constipation aluminum hydroxides
these antacids are rapid acting and release carbon dioxide in the stomach, causing belching and flatulence calcium carbonates
these antacids are rapid acting and can also act as saline laxatives, causing diarrhea, and are contraindicated in patients with obstruction, appendicitis, or undiagnosed abdominal pain magnesium hydroxides
this antacid has a rapid onset, increases flatulence and abdominal pressure, and can induce systemic alkalosis sodium bicarbonate
magnesium hydroxide is usually administered in combination with _______ _________ to prevent diarrhea aluminum hydroxide
this gastric protectant agent is administered with meals, and can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain misoprostol (cytotec)

these two medications are used to treat hepatic encephalopaty lactulose(cholac), neomycin (mycifradin)
this medication for hepatic encephalopathy lowers colonic pH, causing ammonia to be pulled into the bowel and excreted in the feces and improves protein tolerance in patients with advanced hepatic cirrhosis lactulose (cholac)
this medication for hepatic encephalopathy reduces the number of colonic bacteria thus reducing ammonia production neomycin (mycidfradin)
these 5 classes of medications are used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease antimicrobials, 5-aminosalicylates, corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, immunomodulators

this type of laxative absorbs water into feces and helps produce large, soft stools; contraindicated in bowel obstruction bulk-forming laxatives
this type of laxative stimulates motility of the large intestin stimulant cathartic
this type of laxative attracts water into the large intestine to produce bulk and stimulate peristalsis saline (osmotic) cathartics
this type of laxative interferes with the absorption of fat soluble vitamins and softens stool lubricant
these medications inhibit absorption of water in the large intestine resulting in softer stool stool softerners
commonly used bulk forming laxatives fibercon, citrucel, metamucil
commonly used stimulant cathartics bisacodyl, castor oil
commonly used stool softeners docusate calcium (surfak), docusate sodium (colace)
commonly used lubricant laxative mineral oil
when should opoids not be used to control diarrhea? poisons, infections, or bacterial toxins
these medications relax the smooth muscle of the GI tract antispasmodics
opioids used to treat diarrhea codeine, difenoxin with atropine (motofen), diphenoxylate with atropine (lomotil), loperamide (imodium), tincture of opium

this sphincter prevents reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus cardiac (lower esophageal) sphincter
this sphincter regulates the rate of stomach emptying into the small intestin pylorlic sphincter
