Common Questions and Answers about Nexium and pepcid together

nexium

it is safe to use Pepcid and Nexium together.
This that it goes down my throat happened 10 years ago, when I was 30 pounds heavier. I took Prilosec and then Nexium and it solved the problem then. Now (I am normal weight now), when I remember, I take Pepcid AC and it seems to solve the problem for the next night. I am thinking of taking Prilosec or Nexium to permanently stop this from happening. What do you think? I really have found that Depokote helps me with dealing with my anger and with life in ways that I don't understand at all.
yes i think so to, my cardio told me this morn that they do seem to come together and the gerd can make them worse so i know ive had well my 24 hr showed over 36,000 plalp/flutters and i have the belching to go with it so i know they come together , and if am stressed i get a full feeling and air in chest with lots palps, seems like doubling meds not help either just have to let them do there thing and hope they go away soon .
My cardio took me off the nexium and put me on pepcid. Google plavix and nexium to get more info on this subject or go to the FDA website.
Nexium, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix; 2 H2blockers: Zantac and Pepcid; 2 antiacids: Gaviscon and Riopan. I couldn't take any of these more than a few days (from 1 to 13 days) because of their side effects. The 2 bad side effects I've most often had are: worsened IBS - bad abdominal cramps (caused by Nexium together with fever and Zantac) a white-coated and burning tongue (caused by Prevacid, Zantac, Protonix, Pepcid, Riopan).
RX strength nexium at 40 mg/day and nefidipine ER at 30mg/day and over the counter ranitidine 150 mg and famotidine 20 mg once in the morning. i often take the otc in the late afternoon if needed. i have had non-alcohol hepatitis c for decades and am aware of the nexium warning regarding use with liver disease. every now and then i take a break from the nexium and double up on the otc meds. i then have some mild symptoms that are manageable but only when i take a break from the nexium.
Mix water and baking soda together and drink it. It's the only thing that works for me. It's pretty gross tasting though. I was using zantac and it stopped working.
The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
(between where rib cages come together) It feels tight, like someone is squeezing where my esophagus and stomach connects. The pain is amplified when I sit really straight or sneeze/laugh. I have also been belching more than normal. Could this have caused a hiatal hernia? note: I have pre-existing GERD problems that are under control.
The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red wine burps and flatulence (and diarrhea) are mortifying. I have studied the entire human body (in my profession), and have close friendships with several internists. However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease.
They only last a few seconds. The build and peak like labor pains. Say I'm in the kitchen and I'll feel it coming on so I have time to brace myself. I'll set down whatever it is i'm holding and get ready. I have to cross my legs, bend my knees, hold on to something, clench my body tight, and try to breathe. Thank God it only lasts a few seconds. My 14 yr. old son witnessed it yesterday and tried to call 911. I kept signaling him not to. I knew it wouldn't last long. My gyno.
If symptoms persist I take up to 40mg of Pepcid and Gaviscon. I was on Omeprazole for about 6 weeks and switched to Nexium 4 weeks ago. I feel Nexium is not doing enough to relieve my symptoms. Just wondering what should be the next PPI I can try. I have to under go a tonsillectomy on the 18th of June . I am really nervous about having to put up with the pain after surgery and GERD symptoms together. I really need to have GERD settled down before then.
I've asked my cardiologist and my Gastro doc about them being tied together and they both deny it! I think its related to the vegal nerve. When my stomach, esophagus spasms, I get the palpitations. It is really unnerving and very frightening for me, as I have never felt anything like it before. I've been to the ER twice because I thought I was having a heart attack. I had the EKG's, Stress Test, and even an arteriogram. All showing a perfectly healthy heart.
There were more of a problem years ago, and no with the IV medications such as Pepcid (H2 blocker) or Nexium (PPI) these types of ulcers are fairly rare. Your friend sounds as if she is very serious and the reality is she may be dying. If so, it is important to provide on with a good death. That might see like an odd or even offensive comment. But when medical science has exhausted all options, we should focus on the patient's comfort and dignity.
Felt like trash for the next couple of years until I found this doctor who told me I had Neurocardiogenic Syncope. He gave me visken, nexium and rivotril. I quit drinking and eating spicy foods at this time. I felt good for a couple of weeks. Went to the hospital several times. Had some tests done. Positive for syncope once. Negative another time. Doctor decided it was all in my head and proceeded to gave me antidepressants... worst thing ever!
It's nice to know I could use it while still on Nexium. Maybe I could try Nexium every other day and mastic gum on the off days for a few months? Then cut back more on the Nexium if that works? Not eager to deal with acid rebound, since that really gets my PVCs going. But I really don't think it's good to be on Nexium for many years, with what we are now finding out. Thanks. Oh...almost forgot...where do you get your mastic gum? Is it in a tablet or capsule? Thanks.
Side effects, joint ache, low white count and red count, lost weight, burning sensation up from stomach, nexium or pepcid helps. Numb and tingling in the hands and feet. No nausea, taking Kytril.
Please be aware that Prilosec and Pepcid and most drugs that stop acid also inhibit the production of B12, since B12 needs stomach acid. So you should take sublingual (under the tongue) B12 in the form of methylcobalamin, NOT cyanacobalamin. You can also buy B12 lozengers that are methylcobalamin. Take the B12 late in the afternoon between lunch and dinner to make up for the B12 loss from the acid reducer drugs.
My doc put me on 40 mg of Nexium daily, and other than the occasional flare up, my digestive system and I get along very well now. I have to agree with Montana with the constipation thing. Even with 20 mg of Norco, be sure your bowels are moving enough. I take a capful of Miralax every day as well, in addition to Amitiza and Colace. In your situation, it may not be a bad idea to add 100-200 mg of Colace to your daily intake to help keep things moving a bit.
I have tried going off of the PPIs and just using Pepcid AC, and the symptoms above still remain, so I'm guessing these aren't side effects of the PPIs.
Occasionally, I would wake up choking on vomit due to excess acid - which belive me is really frightening. I was initially prescribed Nexium 40mg., and for several months I was acid free and had no side effects. A year later I had an appendix burst while I was working in the Middle East and peritonitis which nearly killed me but for the quick action of a Syrian surgeon who opened my abdomen and flushed out all the pus.
Pains along and below the lower right ribcage, a lot of pain in the area where the ribs meet slightlu to the right, together with a kind of kinetics (movements and sounds)in this area during night. And pains along right side (3cm) of the upper part of esofagus following the right side of stommack and continuing along and below lower right ribs. Sometimes radiating to my back. The pains are likely to occur after eating and drinking (vine or beer) and typically slow down after a few days.
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
I'm taking PPI's (Nexium, Aciphex, etc.) and H2 blockers (Zantac, Pepcid AC, etc.) for LPR reflux. Sometimes also take antacids like Tums, Mylanta and Gaviscon. My concern with the antacids is that they might intefere with ribavirin absorption. Very little in the literature conclusive one way or the other. Wondering if any of you also take antacids and if you take them right after meals with your riba, or if you try to time the antacids a few hours before or after the riba.
Hi Everyone, We're so glad to see you here. Please come in and make yourself at home.
Within the last couple of months I've been prescribed Protonic, then Nexium and Claritin D together and if that didn't help (which it didn't) take Nexium by itself. I have 4 days left and it is not helping yet. I am so desperate to find an answer! I am going to seek help at a local herb store. I think I am also going to get a second opinion of the ear/nose/throat doctor.
Do you ever feel like the Karma just isn't there?? I decide to go ahead with the Solu-Medrol. The neuro's office set it up with home health care. Was supposed to start yesterday. I called the service as to when they will be coming. Hmmm, no record of me. Cant find anything about this, no orders...They call the neuros office, and yes, the orders were there. Somehow they overlooked it. I also went to pick up the prednisone taper and the "pepcid" at the pharmacy.
Then, the next day I was meeting with someone and I had some wave come over me where I felt terribly achy and cold and then my arm and hand went numb on my right side. Then I came home, and the same thing happened to both of my legs from the shins down.
If positive, then the anti-acid medication can be optimized - perhaps a combination of Prevacid and an H2 blocker (like Zantac or Pepcid). If medication isn't helping the symptoms despite a positive test for GERD, then one can look for surgical options (i.e. a fundoplication). You can discuss this option with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
He thought Nexium 40mg bid was too much and he also tested me and I am producing too much histamine (did the scratch test) so he now has me on Allegra 180mg in the AM and 1 Nexium 40mg at night and claritin 10 mg before bed. We'll see how that goes. Thanks.
