Prilosec and pepto bismol

Common Questions and Answers about Prilosec and pepto bismol

prilosec

I started treatment for H. Pylori today and it's made me so sick...hopefully this isn't a reaction to the antibiotics (allergic to PCN) and it's just the meds getting rid of the bacteria in my GI tract... prilosec, Flagyl, Clarithromycin & pepto Bismol for the Bismuth in it. 13 days to go...
I have acid reflux and usually take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> but my doctor changed me to ranitidine. Tums also helps. Dr. said NO <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol. How far along is your wife?
Pill form of pepto bismol works. Bill1954 suggested prilosec. I think I am going to try it.
Six weeks ago I had my first episode of severe stomach pain (upper center abdomen) with by nausea and vomiting, which lasted 22 hours; I tried heat, ice, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol, Maalox, Tylenol, peppermint tea and whining; nothing relieved the pain. After two more episodes in the next two weeks, I saw my doctor who suspected an ulcer, prescribed prilosec, and ordered blood tests. Helicobacter pylori was negative but platelets were elevated (456) as was fasting glucose (115); the surprise was AST at 384.
Have you tried alka seltzer, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol? 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.
Common antacids include * Alka-Seltzer * Maalox * Mylanta * <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol * Riopan * Rolaids Other drugs used to relieve GERD symptoms are anti-secretory drugs such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors.
After that he prescribed me with Nexium, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> and that was it. I was ok for a month or so and then I developed constipation. So I was switching from diarrea to constipation on and off. The burping continue and it seems to happend before I get my period. is 5:41 am and I got up because of gas in my stomach and diarrea. I haven't being able to have a deasent night of sleep for the past 4 days. That happens every month. And I just don't know what to do. Can Anyone help me please???
I have had allergic reactions to both PPis and the acid reducers and even Maalox and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol. 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.
My RE and my OB both said I could take Zantac 150 - - didn't want me to take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol (b/c it has aspirin in it) or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> OTC (it's a category C).
When I swallow it makes a gurggle sound in my throat. Have had these symptoms since November, doctor said it was acid reflux and put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> - didn't help!! Any suggestions of what this maybe caused from?? Thank you!
I have nothing better to focus on. I just want to go the doctor and get a check up and blood tests and an x-ray maybe to make sure there is nothing wrong with me. Even if there is something wrong with me it would be good to know what it is because I could get treatment for it. I have had people on both sides of my family get diabetes in the last two years so I have a family history of health problems.
I ended up in the ER They did a full blood work again, an x-ray and a CT scan all normal except a small cyst on one ovary and distention of the small and large bowel. The pain continued and the diarrhea eased more. I went back to the Gastro Dr and he said IBS and ordered some fecal tests that I requested. All came back normal. he told me to come back in 6 months. I went to my GP who prescribed an anti depressant / anti anxiety medication which I tried for 2 weeks it did nothing.
Im wondering if anyone has ideas my GI doc has put me on Rubinol for the pain (nonnarcotic), miralax to try to stimulate me to go to the bathroom and 40 ml <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> and im scheduled to get a colonoscopy and endoscopy sometime soon but does anyone here have any similar symptoms or have any tips for me?
Do I have cancer, or could this just be IBS as well. I currently only take OTC meds for acid reflux and I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol. Any help would be great! Thanks in advance.
i was diagnosed with H.
avoid soft drinks, spicy foods, pepper. Bleeding from stomach causes black stools, so does <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol. you might have a small ulcer, get checked monday unless things get worse. try tums, this will help also.
Prior to this I unsuccessfully tried tums, pepcid, zantac, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol, and GasX (simethicone). So...this is the cure for me. Who would have guessed it could be fixed with a home remedy?? I highly recommend this remedy for anyone suffering with "egg (sulfur) burps" !!! Watch your sodium intake after since it is so high in sodium. Good luck!!! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/230476'>Sulfur / Rotten Egg Burps, followed by throwing up</a>.
I use zantac when i feel these symptoms, tylenol and lately <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol and drinking veggie juice( i cant seem find just cabbage juice?). They all seem to work for a short term but nothing for a long time. People keep telling me to use prilosec but you see i am from Canada, where its just starting to make its way into this country and have not seen it on store shelves.I also do not have a family doctor and not like the states i cant just call any type of specialist without any referal.
“GERD symptoms are often relieved by over-the-counter, acid-reducing agents called antacids. Common antacids include * Alka-Seltzer * Maalox * Mylanta * <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol * Riopan * Rolaids Other drugs used to relieve GERD symptoms are anti-secretory drugs such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors.

I try to minimize my acidic intake to see if that will help, and yes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol definitely helps. I wonder how long it takes to repair damaged stomach lining, from Nsaid overuse??? Any thoughts on that. I am going to try drinking ginger tea to see if that helps...
When I do take something that bothers my stomach, the pain is really intense and it can take hours to go away. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span>-b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol and tums don't help me at all in these cases. I'd like to say that I'll just make sure I'll never take a medication again that bothers me, but I think that's unlikely. Does anyone else have this problem and is there anything that can be done?
I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Took Omeprazole then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> B<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol twice and my Xanax, 1/2 pill. Now, my mouth is extremely dry. The doctor had given me Carafate and I finally broke down and used some. After almost 2 hours, not much improvement, mouth drier and now getting a headache. Ideas?
I was told to continue omeprazole, and to go ahead and begin taking a teaspoon of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol once daily until my stools began to look normal again. More blood was drawn to check my pancreas for pancreatitis, but it all came back clean. The next day I had a normal looking bowel movement, but of course it was very dark because of the pepto (which is a known side effect).
But in the evening my neck started hurting more and I also started getting a minor headache. The ab pains were very slight and 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.
If you are no longer taking them maybe an OTC antacids such as Maalox, Mylanta, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>, xantac, ect. might help. OR skip the antacid and use Only pepto Bismol or Lomitil for the diarrhea if severe enough to treat that. If it does not help it could be possible the ginger. It the dose of ginger is too high it can cause those symptoms as well so try going off of it and see if your symptoms subside.
I've heard about vitamins,herbs, beta blockers, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, anti-acids, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>is</span>mol, tons of water, on and 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.
Avoid chocolate, peppermint and citrus fruit, plus chilli and tomato. Keep a food diary....see what does and 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.
