The heartburn medicines commonly prescribed for heartburn are sometimes mislabeled and cause harm, according to a new study.
The American Heart Association (AHA) released the study on Thursday.
The AHA recommends people with heartburn avoid certain medications.
They also recommend people not rely on medications to treat the condition.
The researchers say people should talk to their doctor about any side effects they experience from taking the medications.
They found heartburn medication was often mislabeling and used the same medications over and over again.
They used a tool called the Global Health Initiative to analyze data from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), a global pharmaceutical company that manufactures heartburn medications.
Heartburn medicines were commonly mislabelated, and there were no consistent patterns for how many were sold or sold incorrectly, said Dr. Daniel Vetter, lead author of the study and an assistant professor at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor.
The study found the most common mislabelation of heartburn drugs included:Pill and capsule label labeling.
Many pills and capsules sold in pharmacies or health food stores are not labeled with the name of the drug or its active ingredient, Vetter said.
For example, the drug is commonly called a “fear-reducing” medication.
It also was common for companies to use the name “pulmonary hypertension,” which is not a recognized drug category.
It was also common for the same generic medication to be listed as a “blood pressure control” medication, even though the medication’s primary ingredient is a medication for lowering blood pressure.
Heartbreak medicine was the next most common type of mislabelment, with about 12% of heart pain medications sold in health food and pharmacy stores mislabel, according the study.
This included:Anxiety medication.
It is often mislabelled as “panic disorder.”
A common anxiety medication mislabel is “hyper-polarization.”
In addition, a lot of anxiety medications are mislabelged as antidepressants, but the drugs are actually intended to treat anxiety disorders.
In a separate study, the AHA also recommended people not take their heartburn meds every day or take them as needed.
The researchers say heartburn can affect any organ in the body, including the heart, kidneys, and brain.
Heartburn medicines should not be used as a way to treat heartburn or for the prevention of heart disease, Vitter said.
They should be used to help control inflammation in the chest, and for the treatment of severe and chronic heartburn, such as congestive heart failure, he said.
