System

At some point, all of us have had a bellyache—especially right before an exam— that suddenly disappeared once the exam was over. However, a stomach ache and other aliments of the gastrointestinal system are not as easily cured by removing stress. Some require more sophisticated treatment with medication.

Problems with the gastrointestinal system can include vomiting, ingesting toxins, diarrhea, constipation, peptic ulcers, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Each is treatable with the proper medication.

In this chapter, you'll learn about common gastrointestinal disorders and about the medications that are frequently prescribed to treat these conditions.
