prevacid

I've been diagnosed with acid reflux <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span> once a day. Last night, it hurt so bad, I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l, but it hasn't stopped. This morning, I'm getting worried that I"m having a heart attack or something. I'm female, 54 and maybe 20 lbs. overweight. I've had, in the past 10 years, angiogram, Thalium stress test, and many gallbladder tests that have all turned out negative. Should I be worried?
Yes Bill, I have been taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span> 30 mg 2 X a day, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> has stopped working for me. I have been on a lot of different ones over the years, I will let you know what he puts me on this time.
Have you tried alka seltzer, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l? Maybe one of the antacids like prevacid, prilosec. Another one is Omeprazole that you can buy over the counter. Two more, Pepcid and Zantac. Otherwise, go to the doc.
I have had allergic reactions to both PPIs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the acid reducers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> even Maalox <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l. So, those are out. I had been drinking lots of water, and barely eating. The symptoms went away for nearly three months after I suffered for a little bit after I had my gallbladder removed(normal recovery time). During that time, I was not drinking so much water, at least 16 or 20 ounces, but not much more along with Coke. I have no insurance, so can't afford a gastroenterologist.

I got off the meds---they seem to be making matters worse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I had a reaction to either the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span> or the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l or the Maalox... I go to the doctor thursday... I can't take any meds but my synthyroid until then.... Got to suffer.....
Anyway, I finally convinced him to go and the doctor he saw prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sent him home. A week later he wasn't feeling any better so I encouraged him to get a second opinion. This new doctor took one look at him and said it was his heart. They ran some tests and sure enough... they wouldn't even let him go home over the weekend because they said they couldn't guarantee that he would make it back. They kept him the weekend and the next Monday they did a quadruple by-pass.

they havent been giving me much relief. I've tried tums, maalox, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l as well. Nothing seems to help. Any idea what could possibly going on? The drs did xrays and checked for blood in my stool and everything has been negative.

I haven't thrown up or anything, but I always feel like I am. I've been putting a hot water bottle on my stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l to help, but it kind of isn't working that well. I felt better for the 3 days after I got the virus and was eating, but suddenly, it got worse yesterday. I woke up in the morning with a really bad stomach aches and a lot of saliva in my mouth. I felt like I was gonna throw up, but I didn't.
It only causes more discomfort. I do have GERD <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span> which has done nothing. Advil doesn't help, neither does pepto bismol, or anything else OTC. Any ideas??
I've heard about vitamins,herbs, beta blockers, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, anti-acids, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l, tons of water, on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on and on.... The truth is we all get better with time anyways. and then it comes back. It is very difficult to assess any treatment without a study. I wish you all the best and hope it works for you. Let us know if they are resolved permanently or they come back again.
The pain also radiates to my abdomen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I also have alot of gas. This all started yesterday I have tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l, but it does not help. I was nauseous yesterday, but not today.
rolaids/tums can cause rebound heartburn try Maalox/Mylanta first.
The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red wine burps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> flatulence (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
He said that the coating on my tounge came from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l. So I stopped taking that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span>. It seems to work along with some mylanta. So, until I get the results, I'm left worrying about what I may have. Thanks again.
R. They performed several EKG <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> blood work <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said my heart was healthy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that I did not suffer a heart attack. The EKG was abnormal but they said it wasnt to the point of being life threatening. The pain eased away but a slight pressure remained on my chest. That night I played basketball and I felt good. The next day I tried smoking again. After smoking I ate a piece of steak, and took some pepto bismol.
I've taken her to the doctor who did allergy testing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> found nothing wrong. She's a healthy eater <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> drinker. But if she falls down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> cries, she will throw up and if she gags from some food, she will very easily throw up. Now when I take her to the doctor they tell me she's just a normal baby who throws up. But they're not here. They don't see how she's not even awake when she starts throwing up in bed.
Avoid chocolate, peppermint <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> citrus fruit, plus chilli <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tomato. Keep a food diary....see what does <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> doesn't affect u everyone is different. The main thing, according to all the medical journals I have read is the weight and the bed head raising.
But in the evening my neck started hurting more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I also started getting a minor headache. The ab pains were very slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I concentrated more on my neck and head. Plus I also realized I had a loss of appetite. So basically as of today my neck still hurts, slight headaches and loss of appetite. I keep checking my temperature, and there is no sign of fever. I do have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning, but I am hoping to maybe get some insight before then.
Last night, however, I woke up with the same pain. It wouldn't go away for about an hour. I took some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ate some crackers and the pain dulled to the point where I could sleep again. I woke up about 2 hours later and immediately knew I was going to throw up. I threw up and felt completely better after. I fell asleep again and didn't wake until morning. I also have gone through periods that last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks where I have no appetite.

I get pretty decent results from using it, but if it bothers you, try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span>. you can also try to take something like Maalox or Mylanta, or even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-bismol, although that will turn your stools black. The stomach pain is, obviously, not good. It could be gas that is trapped and you can't get it out. But since this is going on so long, I'm not sure. I know you said you don't have insurance, but a visit to a clinic might be worth it just to get some idea from a doctor if this is serious.
I am at my wits end from having diarrhea 10 to 20 times a day. Immodium, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l are not much help with what I have got. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1095958'>Colonoscopy needed or can it wait?</a>.
I called my doctor today <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> she said to try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l for the discomfort. By upper abdomen I refering to below my breast bone, above my navel.
The nausea is bad, but nothing compared to the pain I was having with the ulcer. The Carafate is like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> coats the stomach before I eat. Thanks again.
My discomfort responds to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span>, but not to Zantac. It also responds to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bismo</span>l chewable tablets, but not to the new pepto-bismol capsules. All of which seems to agree with the idea of a source of irritation in the upper esophagus. Thanks much for any explanation or suggestions on where to look. Wayne ___ Dear Wayne, Columnar mucosa in the upper esophagus is a benign condition present since birth.
