I have been taking ranitidine for a few years now when I'm off my diet with no adverse side effects. I have taken the omeprazole with success, but stopped because I do not need a proton pump inhibitor, but rather an antacid when I have gluten in my system.
aside from that i have read it has tons of side effects from urinary problems to mouth problems. avoid all gerd triggers, chest pains are symptoms of gerd(acid reflux) which is somehow connected to gastritis due to excess acids. avoid: chocolates, milk, tomato based products, oily and fried foods. try eating soup or rice porridge for a week.
Just to warn you all that some people (me being one of them) experience severe side effects to Omeprazole that are not listed in package inserts or drug info that the pharamacy gives you with your perscription. Check out 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 gave up alcohol and got put back on another antidepressant (mirtazapine). This worked but had pretty bad side effects. I soon started to notice the return of gastritis symptoms. Over 2008 I experiemented with serveral antidepressants which all gave me horrible side effects, I ended up on a low dose of a tricyclic, dosulepin. My gastritis remained for most of the year, and i attempted drinking every 3 months or so untill it started to hurt again.
You may use over-the-counter antacids after meals and at bedtime, although they do not last very long. Common side effects of antacids include diarrhea or constipation. Other over-the-counter and prescription drugs can treat GERD. They work more slowly than antacids but give you longer relief. Your pharmacist, doctor, or nurse can tell you how to take these drugs.

With the amount of IFN and riba you'll be taking there is a possibility of side effects which should have been part of the decision process. Options for you may be to consult with a new doc (preferably a liver specialist) but at least continue your HCV-Tx education and get with the doc to map out how tx (blood work, rescue drugs, viral testing) will proceed throughout the Tx. Good luck Simple.
When I talked to him on the phone last he said I do not have dysplasia. I am not sure exactly what he meant by the pre-Barretts. My guess is Barretts without dysplasia. The info you and Isabeljo gave me is the type of info I was looking for when I paid to have this posted. Thanks.
// Muscle cramps are the first thing listed. Diuretics (water pills) are often prescribed to treat ascites and portal hypertension. Perhaps a different medication should be considered by your doctor.
I have done my best to warm people about the sight threatening side effects from Topamax, but this last week I have seen the worst case scenario up close and personal. This patient was a 65 year-old man on only 25 mg of Topamax a day for headaches. It took us over 8 hours just to get the eye pressure under 50 (which is still about 3 times normal.) He was rapidly losing vision from an attack of acute angle closure glaucoma IN BOTH EYES.
I stopped taking the omeprazole as it didn’t appear to be working and last thing I feel I need if I have anything to do with nerves is a medication that depletes vitamin B 12, one of its side effects. Horrible intermittent sensations in chest and throat (either side of windpipe) that can last for up to or over an hour. Difficult to describe – internal quivering/discomfort almost pain. Also under ribs on both sides. Slight headache.
A recent stress test will give many answers, but don't be too concerned about the GTN. I had a total blockage in my left coronary artery and GTN did nothing except give me nasty headaches. It doesn't work for everyone. It may be of interest to know that when I was on beta blockers I sweated a lot, even after a very small amount of exertion. Sometimes just sitting in a chair I would have a hot sweat. Maybe the medication is related.
An endoscope is run down the esophagus where suction pulls a flap of tissue down in order to guard the esophageal opening from the harmful effects of stomach acid. Fasteners keep the tissue permanently in place where it will eventually fuse to function naturally. At the end of recovery, a protective barrier prevents acid reflux and the symptoms that go along with it.
Obama-appointed FDA officials vowed to revisit the Bush-era decision last fall after congressional investigators accused the agency of being too cozy with the companies it regulates. Since the device's approval, the top two device regulators who oversaw Menaflex's review have left the agency. Four New Jersey Democrats -- U.S. Reps. Frank Pallone and Steve Rothman and U.S. Sens.
I was in a terrible car accident causing me to be in the hospital for one month and now leaving me on Plavix for 5 months so far. i have had many of the side effects; nausea, dizziness, fatigue, easy bruising etc. but lately something came up that shocked me, i don't know how long they have been there for, but my throat had been hurting for about 2 weeks and i looked in my mouth and saw white lesions and ulcers in my mouth.

It has completely controlled my severe chronic heartburn and, as evidenced by a recent endoscopy, has really protected my esophagus which is in rather good shape considering how long I've had GERD. The problem is, in the last couple months, I've been getting breakthrough symptoms. I've been getting these relatively mild but worriesome heartburn episodes and alarmingly to me I've been getting a new symptom which is waking up several times a night with an annoying and persistent dry cough.
I have had PVCs for a little over 10 years. I noticed mine normaly come at 2 different times. After I eat. AND they can come if I skip a meal. After I eat, could I need digestive aids? Or am I eating foods that my body can't break down? Food sensitivities? Looking to start a food journal to see if I can pinpoint something. I know if I'm laying in bed and my heart skips, sometimes I can sit upright and burp and my heart goes back to normal. Does that mean it's gas?
Is this bloating because of the low stomach acid I got while taking omeprazole? If so, how long will it last and what can I do to return stomach acid so I don't bloat any more? Thank you.

Because these microvascular vessels do not dilate when they should (from exertion-any type) I must keep continued excellent control of lipids as any blockages of these vessels would not be good. Plus I am quite dependent on nitro patches 24/7. I am no longer in pain, have no shortness of breath unless I reach some level of exertion, rare coronary spasms, mild to moderate chest pressure and occasional chest tightness that requires nitro SL in addition to the 24/7 three 0.
personal_page_id=890501 You said you had stomach issues before the anxiety - however the worry about stomach pain all the time can increase your anxiety. Omeprazole is something you want to minimize taking because of its side effects, however you had indicated before that your stomach was still hurting so that is why I told you to keep taking it. You said the Omep allowed you to eat more of the foods you wanted ot eat. What foods are you thinking of?
Swelling and pain of extremities is a side effect of PPI. I think we are just beginning to see the long term effects of PPIs. I hope our Health Care Providers get up to speed soon. Thanks Again.... we apparently solved some pain issues on our own. This is a perfect example of why we should stay abreast of our medications,their side effects, interactions and so forth. This is also true for our diagnosis.
Use a alternate day or Mon-Fri consumption to avoid any side effects. Just watch out for any side effects (sore throat etc) but if you stick to lowest dose of 1 Tea spoon a day 5 days a week you shall be fine. I took this for around 4 weeks, stopped for a week and restarted. This is to be done for 3-4 months. Have Large doses of around 3 tea spoon at least one day in a week to get better results. http://www.chinaherbstore.
