How to Minimize Skelid Side Effects on the Esophagus

In order to reduce the chance of developing serious esophageal side effects, you should follow the prescribed directions on how to take Skelid. For example:
 
  • Skelid should be taken on an empty stomach and with a full glass of water first thing in the morning.
     
  • Swallow the tablet whole. Do not suck or chew on the Skelid tablet.
     
  • Remain in an upright position (sitting up or standing) for 30 minutes after taking Skelid. Although the manufacturer of Skelid does not specifically recommend this, it is a common recommendation for other similar medications.
     
  • For at least two hours before and after taking Skelid, it is important to:

 

    • Wait to eat or drink. This includes mineral water, sparkling water, coffee, tea, milk, or juice. Plain water is okay.
    • Avoid taking any other oral medicine, including calcium supplements.

 

Final Thoughts on Skelid Side Effects

You may experience some or none of the Skelid side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Skelid, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
