Common Questions and Answers about Prilosec with magnesium

prilosec

My EP doctor said to be sure I take an antacid that has both calcium and magnesium, because magnesium can help with PVCs. Not eliminate them, but make them less uncomfortable and, for some people, less frequent. I've taken a calcium/magnesium supplement and Mylanta tablets (which has both calcium and magnesium) for a few months, and find I'm feeling the PVCs less. They're not gone, but they're less troublesome most of the time. Hope this helps someone.
He claims to have seen thousands of patients whose viral loads went up with proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec. Assuming he sees 2 new patients a week who have Hep C and take PPI's, it would take about 19 years to see 2000 patients ("thousands of patients"). On top of that, they would have to come to him first, get their viral load checked, then start a PPI and recheck the VL for him to have that kind of information.
A month ago, I was feeling a lot of heartburn and so I took my mother's prilosec along with my Yasmin and went straight to bed. Because of indigestion, I did not have dinner that night either. At around 2am, I woke up to use the restroom and I clearly remember voiding but what happened afterwards, I have no recollection of that. Apparently, I fainted and fell down on the floor. My mother heard a big thump she walked. From what she described, I was having a seizure.
I was wondering if there would be any I want to say drug interactions (but Metabolife is all natural herbs)if I kept taking the metabolife and started taking the Prilosec. I don't want to start taking the Prilosec till I know it's safe. You may need to know the ingredients of Metabolife to see if any of these would counteract or much worse with each other so here they are: Vitamin E 6 i.
I have been taking metabolife, and have been having great success with it. I have just been perscribed 20mg per day of Prilosec for acid reflux. I was wondering if there would be any I want to say drug interactions (but Metabolife is all natural herbs)if I kept taking the metabolife and started taking the Prilosec. I don't want to start taking the Prilosec till I know it's safe.
It appears that this drawback is found with use of all proton pump inhibitors. You may want to discuss the problem with your doctor.
She had one incident for a few days where she experienced heartburn and a few other times the nausea was accompanied with abdominal pains. Most of the time she just experiences nausea. I took her to the pediatrician. He prescribed prilosec. She has taken it for two weeks now. She thinks the nausea may have lessened but she is still experiencing it. How long should she stay on this and if she still experiences the symptoms should I bring her to a GI specialist?
Cally, my four month old was two months premature due to double placental abruption caused by complete placenta previa. She was diagnosed with sleep apnea in the NICU. After a month long NICU stay we took her home, then took her back three days later when she stopped breathing while I was feeding her. After a week long stay and numerous tests, she was diagnosed with severe GERD and put on Axid, and her feedings were thickened.
Highly recommended to try digestive enzyme supplements to help digest food and trial betaine HCI with pepsin supplements to make up for stomach acid insufficiency. Magnesium deficiency is another cause of acid reflux because magnesium helps the sphincter at the bottom of the stomach relax and allow the food to go down. "Magnesium plays a pivotal role in the secretion and function of insulin; without it, diabetes mellitus is inevitable." - Nutritional Magnesium Association.
They had better results with the 24 weeks of Harvomi and Riba than with the 24 weeks of Harvoni without Riba. And you should definitely do 24 weeks, not 12 weeks. Again, look at the data in the capsule summary. This is from Clinical Care Options ..... Capsule summary: Here are the most recent findings presented at the AASLD.
Drug Safety Communication - Low Magnesium Levels Can Be Associated With Long-Term Use. 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).
They don't seem as numerous and/or the sensitivity decreases with light physical activity. With heavy upper body activity such as moving heavy objects (pulling/pushing) I've had the irregular heart rate symbol show on the Omron monitor I use at home. They also increase significantly while eating, with particular body positions, such as leaning forward at the waist, tilting my head forward or backward at particular angles or slightly tilting my body left or right of vertical when sitting.
I has nothing to do with stress or post nasal drip or sinuses. It may have something to do with food allergies and intolerances. Just a guess but that is all I have right now to work with.
I also take a Primal Defense Ultra probiotic capsule each morning, HCl with lunch and dinner, and 200 mg of magnesium with dinner. My bowel movements are better than they've been in a long time, and I don't really get diarrhea anymore, but the discomfort is always there to some extent. I also have very little energy from when I wake up until I go to sleep. I need to get a job but feel like this discomfort and fatigue will interfere with working as it has already made my social life suffer.
Try magnesium taurate, or Magnesium Glycinate. These are much easier to break down and digest than magnesium oxide. I love Magnesium Glycinate, it's been a life saver. I get it from amazon.
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 notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
I don't believe that consuming fruit with a high K diet alone would raise K values to the point of side effects. At the moment I am more interested in the magnesium deficiency/arrhythmia information that I have read about. There seems to be something to that side of the electrolyte balance. I asked my pharmacist and he recommended magnesium chloride supplement. I will try anything to avoid the palpitations.
Drink socially but rarely and one to two drink maximum when I do. Low magnesium on some blood tests, High d-dimmer on one attack that I went to ER for, always have high Sed rates. Pain in chest radiates from sternum and throughout torso. Pain is dibilatating and excruciating. Have the ability to move but cant from such intense pain with bad attack. Can apply pressure only if not a full blown attack but NO pressure can be applied during an attack.
nexium, prilosec) is magnesium deficiency. That is one of the many nutrient deficiency states that will occur with low stomach acid. Magnesium is the most important co factor for vitamin D. In a study of 150 patients referred to a clinic in Minnesota for the evaluation of persistent muscle and bone pain, 93% had vitamin D deficiency. My mother is free of severe GERD, severe LPR (suffered both for 5 years) and 95% improved with gastritis (25 years / 5 years severe pain).
It's very unlikely IMO that you have a magnesium defiiency. PVCs have many causes, only a few of which can be solved with supplements. One possibility worth consiering is indegestion (GERD) on occasion. Do the PVCs occur more frequently after eating? PVCs are often associated with digestive problems. One solution in those cases is to take an OTC proton pump inhibitor like prilosec.
Normal on triglycerides. I also have a controlled heart burn problem (prilosec). And I have a lot of trouble with sleep. Blood pressure is normal. Not Pregnant. Never had kids. I am only 23 I will be 24 Dec. 2011. As of today the only thing I am prescribed is a generic for flexaril (10 mg 3 times a day which doesn't work), prilosec for heart burn, and birth control (sprintec 28 day). I went to physical therapy and it made the pain in my back worse, so I have stopped going thus far.
I have taken Prilosec for indigestion and IBS for the last year, it helps, but seems to wear off before I am suppose to take it again. I use to get pains in my upper chest after eating and a friend in med school told me I may have an acid problem where it leaks into my lungs and burns them. I cant recall the name of the condition, but the Prilosec seemed to stave off the pain, I started using the Prilosec shortly after she told me.
nexium, prilosec [which is omeprazole]), the FDA made a statement to take up to 14 days, 3 times a year. There is a good reason for this. You NEED stomach acid to absorb essential nutrients and kill of bacteria, fungi, parasites. Muscle pain could be due to magnesium deficiency for instance. This is the newest warning out by the FDA. A magnesium deficiency can occur within 3 months of taking a PPI.
However the symptoms seem the same, it starts with thrush in his mouth, leading to severe pain on the left side of his stomach. And as you also mentioned he is anemic and then he will have his hand on various areas of his stomach..may occasionally have a temperature. Becomes very withdrawn. Will refuse to eat or drink. Severe constipation. I have noticed the same pattern over the years...It lasts for couple of weeks and he may have a good 2/3 weeks and then the symptoms reoccur.
She still takes enzyme with every meal but betaine HCI with pepsin only with protein meals. Some people can stop eventually with this supplement as the betaine retrains the stomach to produce it's own acid. My mother needs to keep taking it however. Excerpt from Dr Jockers article "Beat acid reflux naturally"... "The most common risk factors for GERD include anything that obstructs the esophagus or stomach region such as hiatal hernia, pregnancy, and scleroderma.
I agree with jrbon and just want to add, I think it's unlikely you can handle the problem by simply adding a magnesium supplement, since your blood pressure has always been low. Adding magnesium could tend to make the blood pressure drop even more. Hopefully there will be other ways, besides taking Nexium, that your acid reflux symptoms can be addressed. FWIW, I was on Prilosec for years, finally had to stop because of the side effects, and now am off of it with no problems.
You can also try Aloe Vera Juice but only use as directed on the bottle. Tums also works well and is just calcium with some magnesium. Applesauce can help as well before/after meals because apples sooth the stomach. I find cranberry juice helps as well, it is a very powerful anti-oxidant. Don’t go for the magic pill cure as it usually will not help. I took the magic pill (prilosec) and it lead me down a horrible road of terrible symptoms, much worse than reflux.
I'm in the same boat, benign PVCs, put on metoprolol tartrate 25mg twice a day. It sapped my energy, along other bad side effects. Worst part is, I still got PVCs (ectopic beats). I quit them and I feel much better. If you've only been on them 2 days, your body is still adjusting to them and you may feel better but I doubt it. Personally, I'm finding success reducing the PVCs with increasing my water intake and taking a dab of sea salt with each glass. Google "the water cure".
