Pantoprazole otc

Common Questions and Answers about Pantoprazole otc

protonix

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.
I was very restless and anxious and the warnings were to quit it immediately if I experienced those symptoms. So, my OB put me on Prilosec OTC this week----I have read pros and cons on line.....anyone else out there have an opinion?
I am taking tagamet otc- Walmart generic brand and for me it is better than the rx ones- But that's just me....
I was taking Prilosec, OTC, twice a day, then the doctor switched me to Rabeprazole after that stopped working. Then I had to take two a day. When this stopped working he switched me to Pantoprazole or Protonix. Now this is not working no great. Are there any PPI's I haven't tried? I get reflux, but it feels like nausea. It can last for hours at a time!
If the lump in the throat is caused by acid (very possible given what you describe), consider taking a course of antacids (I recommend Gaviscon for starters, Pepcid Complete if that doesn't work, and finally Prilosec OTC if that doesn't work after a few days each) to see whether this helps take the feeling away. If it does then you've essentially traced it down to it being acid. If it doesn't after 2 weeks, then you may wish to go see a doc just to be safe.
Both H2RAs and PPIs work by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach and thus relive the symptoms of heartburn. Most H2RAs are available OTC and include Zantac (Ranitidine), Pepcid (Famotidine), and Axid (Nizatidine) and are considered first line for the treatment of meal-induced heartburn. The other classes of medications, the PPIs, are considered stronger and are more for treating GERD and not just symptomatic relief of meal induced heartburn.
We then revisited our GP who thought it may be reflux associated, he was commenced on pantoprazole 40mg daily. He has been taking this now for 5 weeks with little to no effect as well as cutting down his smoking and avoiding dairy products. Whilst he has days where it is managable.....he often has nights where he is unable to sleep until he finally sleeps out of pure exhaustion.
You will need to take a combination of medications like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into by a carbon urea breath test and a combination antibiotic tried. Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals.
However, does anyone have any advice on some home treatment or OTC medicine that I could use for this infection. This has been going on (off and on) for months, and this pain and burning is becoming unbearable. Also, several of my remaining teeth on that side has become loose. I have had teeth extracted in the past because of this problem. Thank you.
Your son will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals or H-2 blocker such as ranitidine for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into by a carbon urea breath test and a combination antibiotic tried.
He actually did an endoscopy and colonoscopy and found only some inflammation in my esophogus, which he prescribed prilosec otc for. I have been taking the prilosec otc and it did not help with my symptoms at all. I then went online and did some research and thought maybe something is wrong with my hormones so I went to an endocronologist who did some blood tests and found that I had extremely low vitamin D, but nothing else wrong, so she prescribed some strong vitamin D pills for me.
Honestly so many of you have told me your doctors have approved one medicine or another, my sister was able to take nexium during her pregnancy. I may just get the otc pepsid and try that. I think I'm nervous about everything right now, I am already using the nebulizer with albuterol which I know is a class C. I only use it once a day, lately sometimes once every couple of days. Anyway, I'm still have trouble with my ultrasound pictures so I'll try to figure that one out.
My gastroenterologist did an upper gi endoscopy which only showed mild gastritis. I was put on pantoprazole for a couple months. This slightly helped with the heartburn, but produced full blown nausea everyday. It's important to mention at this point that I have pretty bad anxiety and also have emetophobia. The thought of vomiting sends me into a full blown panic attack. I'm able to control it so I do not vomit, just have severe nausea for long periods of time.

Stomach issues have been present, intense and sharp pain was common before being diagnosed with acid reflux, pantoprazole has taken care of 99%+ of that. I have a lot of sluggishness and joint pain. I am overweight, 6', just over 300 lbs, I've actually gained 60-70 lbs over the past year through all of this. I struggle to sleep if stomach isn't full, the taste of sinus drainage just burns and makes me nautious. I also recently learned I have a ttg score of 73. But some things don't add up.
(esomeprazole, dexlansoprazole [DEXILANT], omeprazole, omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate [ZEGERID], lansoprazole, pantoprazole, rabeprazole, esomeprazole and naproxen [VIMOVO]; PRILOSEC OTC, ZEGERID OTC, PREVACID 24-HR; and all other generic counterparts). We petitioned the FDA to require the inclusion of black box warnings identifying the following risks: rebound acid hypersecretion, which results in dependence on these frequently overused drugs; fracture; infection; and magnesium deficiency.
Lady GNC told me all I'd need to do is take an enzyme tablet, therefore Synthroid can be absorbed better. I have an OTC Lactaid one that has magnese & magnesium. Will this help or hinder? Any comments are appreciated!
Yes, Ranitidine would help as it has a different mechanism of action from that of lansoprazole. Pantoprazole (pantocid) is from the same group of drugs as lansoprazole, but some individuals respond better to it. You can try the ranitidine and the pantoprazole while stopping the lansoprazole. Note that pantoprazole should be taken on empty stomach and there should be a time interval of 1 hour between the pantoprazole and any food or beverage. Ranitidine is to be taken 30 min after food.
in addition to avoiding foods that will trigger symptoms, did u also modify ur lifestyle? Are u still on the meds? U can get them OTC....talk to ur local Pharmacist at the Drug store and they can suggest what u might take.... If ur job was very stressful, that too will add to this issue, u need to know the underlying factors...hiatal hernia, etc,...so u know how to treat it.
Its not gone, but I can deal with this. I'm also taking OTC previcid, but I've been taking 2 pills at night and 2 in the morning. (the doctor told me its ok to take 2 because its the same as getting the prescription and I have no insurance so that was cost effective. I'm terrified to eat, I eat a little bit. I know its not good to do a bunch of things at once but after dealing with this for weeks on end the relief is more important to me right now.
If I still smell things on Monday, I'll call. No, I do have Nasacort but haven't used it in months. The only meds I take is OTC Prilosec.
Prescription PPIs include Nexium (esomeprazole magnesium), Dexilant (dexlansoprazole), Prilosec (omeprazole), Zegerid (omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate), Prevacid (lansoprazole), Protonix (pantoprazole sodium), AcipHex (rabeprazole sodium), and Vimovo (a prescription combination drug product that contains a PPI (esomeprazole magnesium and naproxen).
Ask your primary doc? You can buy Omeprazole (Prilosec OTC) or Prevacid 24HR at any drug store. They are to be used for up to 14 days. If you have GERD you will feel better in a few days. If you need stronger medicine a doc can prescribe something like Pantoprazole which can be taken for a long time period.
reading these has given me much insight....the coughing, asthma, prednisone, inhalers, allergies. - this is all happening to my 4 year old!!! this is her 3rd break through coughing fit....1st time put on proair inhaler & 4mg of singular, 2nd time put on flovent inhaler & otc allegra & now she's on prednisone for the next 9 days. i just made a promise to myself that if she has another break through coughing fit i will demanding the cultures & the ct scan...
I really don't want to go to the hospital especially since my mother just had her gall bladder removed. Is there anything OTC that I can test and see if it will work for me?
Empty, full, night time, day time, diet OTC Meds, breathing, no fiber, more fiber, all have been given a shot. I've had the gallbladder taken out I've had the endoscope and nothing has been able to help. It has been worse after the removal and it's been 3 weeks. Any new suggestions?
I can't afford to miss work tomorrow but more than that, I cannot afford to spend the night and tomorrow morning going through this hellish experience again. It's just too much. So, here's what I've tried. I took 40mg pantoprazole sodium (Protonix) delayed release tablet and an alka-seltzer. These were 2 of 3 ideas I found on this site. The 3rd idea said to eat a lime or lemon. I have to say, the burps do feel a bit controlled but I'm not ready to claim victory yet.
