Common Questions and Answers about Difference between protonix and omeprazole

protonix

There is no data that suggests a significant difference between Protonix and Nexium. Nexium is an appropriate appoach to Barrett's esophagus. Prilosec and Nexium are also very similar. Prilosec has a cost advantage of having a generic equivalent. These questions can be addressed with your personal physician or GI physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
The chiropractor said that I don't have an injury, but fascia...itis in neck and shoulder. The only meds I'm on now are protonix for reflux, and clonodine for hot flashes, and wellbutrin. If it was rebound pain from getting off pain meds, I would think it would subside a little every now and then. Anyone know about this possibly being a side effect of taking protonix?
com and search for omeprazole or prilosec. I was taking 40mg omeprazole for almost 3 weeks and it caused severe anxiety, chest pain, dizziness, tight feeling in my throat, arm and leg weakness, abdominal pain, insomnia, and high BP.I thought I was dying. I stopped taking the omeprazole and after 2 weeks started to feel better but I am not completely symptom free yet. Ask your doctor to try the 10 mg dose first or ask about other options for acid reflux.
I have read a lot about the interaction between Plavix and PPI’s but he thinks only Omeprazole have more effect on Plavix, not Pantoprazole. Please, let me know what your opinion is and have you heard about any interaction between those two? I don’t need an additional heart attack.
Both of those drugs cause me severe side effects..quite scarry actually. Is Protonix and Nexium the same thing? Are Protonix and Nexium considered H2 Inhibitiors instead of PPI's? I see that I can purchase nexium at Wal-Mart and Wal-greens at a reasonable price. Thanks in advance for any help or direction.
Besides the cost, is their truly a difference between Nexim and Prilosec. The active components in Nexium are esomprazole magnesium and in Prilosec are Omeprazole Magnesium. Also, Nexium comes in 20 mg and 40 mg capsules and Prilosec is sold over the counter in 20 mg tablets. My GI switched me to Nexium because Aciphex gave me terrible side effects and Protonix made my water brash symptoms ever worse. I have tried Prilosec in the past and it didn't have much of an effect for me.
Nausau upon wakening, some reflux, terrible heartburn every 3 days or so that lasts all day and a pain in my upper right quandrant that flucuates between severe and just a gnawing feeling. Have had too many tests to mention. Had my gallbladder removed a few weeks ago. Still feel the same. Now my doctor is thinking maybe it's the sphincter of the oddi. Does anyone have any information about this? Any comments are truly apprectiated.
I'd do a little more research before totally discounting all of the allopathic medical sciences. There is a difference between simple heartburn and acid reflux disease (or GERD). I'd check out the Am. College of Gastroenterology website for a lot of info on the different disease states.
Write it down- document when you feel the pain, what you have been doing lately, and what foods you have eaten. You might find a correlation between you symptoms and what you are doing. (Usually you don't feel the symptoms until awhile after you have been stressed, at least that's how it is for me, it's like your body builds it up until it can't take it any longer.) 5. If your symptoms don't go away or get worse, go to a doctor.
These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Before the transfusion I had only stomach pains. I was taking Protonix and I took antibiotics for h.pylori during that time they told me my iron /blood was low /anemic, but they said they didn't want to treat that at that time because the iron pills would be even more crucial on my stomach.mind you that all that happened three months prior to the transfusion. But what I'm saying is that I never had this anxiety then and I still had my stomach issues.
Months later still not feeling better I reverted back to original treating endo. He is the one that added the T3. The difference in opinion freaks me out and I hate to take medications and often wonder if I ever truly had a thyroid condition to begin with since we did a trial run on levothyroxine. I don't know if the trial run was giving the ultimate answer that yes there is a problem since the numbers elevated after the adminirstration of the low dosage. Again, I have been to so many drs.
I am now on Norpace XR and I may face the same issue with my medigap policy as far as the difference in cost between XR and regular. I think the regular tablet can be taken 3 times a day, and the XR 2 times per day. I, also, will discuss this with my cardio when I see him in a couple of weeks. Do you actually get to SEE your doctor when you have a problem?
Took a reglan, omeprazole and two phazyme. Then laid very still with my head on two pillows. Got to sleep ok and this morning I have mild burping with pressure in my chest. Something that helps with the severe pain is oxycodone which I take for neck and back pain. These episodes come more frequently as cool weather sets in. In the spring and summer months I never have one. I am very physical in those months and am less active in fall and winter months.
Hi I was diagnosed with moderately severe erosive esophagitis and chronic mild gastritis a month ago via endoscopy and biopsy. I have been on 40 mg omeprazole QAM for 4 and a half weeks and 300 mg ranitidine Qhs. I have no relief of my symptoms. Esophagus feels as something is stuck in it much of the time with sharp pains and burning in chest, arms and back much of the day as well. It doesn't matter if my stomach is empty or I have eaten.
After my son was born in 2006, I had an upper endoscopy done and they found a small hiatal hernia and they diagnosed me with GERD and I was put on Protonix. Initially it seemed to work but as with most things, the medicine became less effective after about a year. I was then moved to 40mg Zegerid which was increased to 2x daily about 12 months ago. For about the last year the Zegerid has only been working about 25% of the time.
I was reading another comment that a teaspoon of sea salt a day made a big difference with crepitus although calcium and magnesium helped as well. You lose sugar and salts as well as water when you are dehydrated. A sports drink hydrates quicker than water as the salt in the sports drink is the first thing to cross through the gut into the rest of your body and water follows the salt! It takes longer for the water to get through on its own.
Eat a moderate sized meal with a protein and a fat, and keep you carb intake between 15 and 30 grams during the meal. NO SUGAR. Drink Water, not soda or coffee. If you don't get phlegm after that balanced meal with reduced carbs to lower insulin response.. Congrats, you have your cure. You are also probably insulin resistant, have excess belly fat, and fall asleep after high carb meals and suffer from acid reflux. It all goes together.
This does affect your quality of life daily! I am now on Omeprazole ( don't think it helps, especially my dry mouth and throat), low dose Xanax, I have taken fir years and Simethicone. Actually, at one of my trips to the ER, the doctor suggested that. Another trip to the ER, that doctor prescribed a liquid antacid with Simethicone. My GI doctor told me not to use it saying it would do no good. Well, it is one of the few things that helps!
i took 2 omega 7's and the acid eaze and the kyodofilus for later and within 45 mins i felt a major difference and by the end of the night i had only used the bathroom once or twice and by the next day i was 100%.
I was given Trimehobenzamide for nausea which didn't help to much and yesterday was given Protonix for acid which has helped. Today has been a good day. I think one has to hope for the best. I know it was very hard for me to function before my gallbladder was removed. I was in so much discomfort that I was clenching my teeth and my jaw became sore. I'm doing better and I think when one has the problems over time all of your digestive tract suffers somewhat.
I had a cardioversion done a month later and right away I could tell the difference between in and out of sinus and the calmness when in as well as how much easier it was to breath. I was in for around a week and one night I could feel it coming, and I was out. I was switched to Taxtia XT 300mg per day and had another cardioversion done, and that lasted maybe 2 weeks, and then back out again.
I am relatively healthy and in my own case started noticing a pattern where by it became clear to me that there did seem to be an association between my afib attacks and digestive troubles namely gas and or bloat. The gas sometimes wasn't obvious or noticeable but never the less hours later into afib I would get this gurgling in a particular area in my gut and eventualy would release gas either by burping or by relieving myself in the bathroom.
i have the same issue, many times its sucha debilitating pain that i jsut don't tknow wahts wrogn wtih me. recetly i was put on lexapro and protonix which is for reflux....i still worry. but "just anxiety" is getting annoying.
I have been trying to burp since it happened each of these times and have just been getting gurggles. Has anyone ever heard of a link between tonsils and not being able to burp? I really feel like the inability to burp has taken away from my quality of life.
I also had sores, but they got much better when I started on a Protonic Pump (antacid like Protonix or Nexium), and only come back when my sinuses are irritated or my GERD is acting up, so acid/mucous are irritating my tongue. In other words, they aren't the BMS. Like others, I also recommend Biotene products and a mouth rinse called Jason's Healthy Mouth.
Sleeping upright or upside down doesn't seem to make a difference. My Dr prescribed Tussinex which I promptly went back and got her to give me Cotridin instead. I find Tussinex to be completely useless while the Cotridin (or its known as Co-Actifed) is substantially superior! While on this med driving is a No-No, at least I get to sleep at night (YAY!). I've tried the Lemon/honey trick, salt water etc. I was prescribed Ventolin (for emergency cant breathe situations!) and Advair.
Fine tremors can also be caused my mercury poisoning. Do you have amlagam/mercury fillings in your mouth? have you ever had a heavy metal test? I have started to get my fillings replaced and my "fine tremors" have begun to lesson, although not gone. They started about 3 years ago. ALSO if you are undiagnosed hypo or hyper thyroid..a sigh of hyper is tremors as well. And you can 'swing" back and forth between hyper and hypo. What have you deduced since you first posted?
i have lived in Brazil for over 20 years on the seaside and also in cities with no beaches and it didn't make a difference, now i live in NYC and the condition became really sharp, i think i yawn or i try to yawn 25/30 times a day; the feeling of claustrophobia is bigger in NY, but my apetite for success make me love this city, though sometimes i think this is really boring...
