Common Questions and Answers about Protonix and pepcid

protonix

I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> a.c. now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it tears my stomach up. Mmm I have an appt today so we'll see.
I was diagnosed with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> ulcer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> reflux a little over a week ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was put on a once-daily dose of 40mg protonix. Ever since then I have been experiencing uncomfortable constipation with full relief coming only once. As you can imagine, it's not only uncomfortable but embarrassing to be bloated and gassy almost every day. How long should I be on the protonix, and should I be taking anything else to help ease the constipation?
I have no history of bad anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> racing heart like this.. So I decided to stop taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>...the last time i took it was thursday and i still feel like im in hell.... You would think I am detoxing from some other hard core drug and I havent taken anything else.. I am still so naseous, gagging, stomach pains, heart palps..and I am def not pregnant or anything like that so I cant find any other cause for all of this.. Is there anything i can do to get this medicine out of my system.
I guess while on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> feeling so well, I took advantage of that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ate my chocolate, coffee, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> spicy foods. I am not a big eater. I watch my diet, exercise, and am in good shape. I guess I feel "entitled" to a few foods that I love. Don't many of us eat what we like if we are being treated successfully? I read so many posts that say, I can eat anything I want....do you stay on the GERD diet even when you are feeling well on your med's? Thanks again for your support!
Dr Appointment went great! Starting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> hopefully that will fix my heart burn!!! It feels like my esophagus is eating itself! Measuring right on track (one week ahead 32)….ready to hold this little munchkin already! Can not wait till September!!
i am wondering if any one in the prove 1 trial with the xv950 was on either a proton pump inhibitor ( prevacid,prilosec, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>, nexium , aciphex) or a h2 blocker (zantac <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> tagamet axid ) thanks chuck
I came off of Imdur 60 mg twice a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a nitro patch. It was working but now I get real bad heartburn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my GERD (acid reflux) is back. Has any one had a similar experience? Here is a listing of my meds. Any help appreciated.
Prevacid, Nexium, protonix, Aciphex, Zantac, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> are all used to treat reflux. You can ask you doctor who will know best which one is least likely to cause you dizzyness.
I went to the doctor, I received a abdominal ultrasound (specifically gall bladder and liver) which came back normal. He prescribed a muscle relaxer for the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> for the stomach. A few weeks later, I went out for dinner and drinks and sure enough the nausea came back. I had an EGD done of esophogus, stomach and duodenal. Everything came back normal and the Dr. said this was probably GERD causing this since I do suffer from Acid reflux.
about 10% of people will feel some sort of side effect from Reglan, mostly fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> possibly restlessness. Have you tried any other class of drug? PPIs, like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> or Nexium, or H2-inhibitors, like Zantac or pepcid? (For the record, PPIs also strengthen the LES, although they shut down production of acid instead of increasing the gastric contractions.) Usually Reglan is reserved for people with gastric motility issues. Have you had a gastric emptying exam? If so, what was the result?
and it was only once then. It just happened so suddenly, I was breathing find <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then I lie down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> immediately begin experiencing problems. I also have terriible posture and spend 5+ hours a day using the computer, sitting not up straight in a chair, not sure if that has anything to do with it either.
After extensive research, I found literature on the internet that suggested Sinus problems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> GERD can be related <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> both can contribute to bad breath. I tried Prilosec OTC and it worked!!! So far, so good. My breath has improved around 40%-50%. So, the problem is definitely GERD. I've elevated my bed to around 6 inches and this is the only thing I'm doing currently other than stop drinking coffee completely! No medications and would rather stay away from them. Now, the question.
Day after when don't take the pill feel much better but acid taste starts to come back. Why do these drugs cause nausea. Tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Zantac <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> got very bad headaches. Any suggestions? Don't know where to turn.
Seem to be much better when I take care of my stomach with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> AC <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Rolaids. I can get a nasty, strong series of them if I have a somewhat full stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lie or lean on my left side. I get mild ones often while on left side. I am not just "feeling them more" on my left side. Had a run of them for several hours at high altitude after a big meal (every so many beats). Get a few close behind each other when exercising. 2. General difficulty breathing.
Reflux and a hiatal hernia have been causing similar symptoms for me since Feb. I've taken prilosec, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span>, zantac, reglan. Now I am trying nexium and baclofen. The baclofen was prescribed to control chronic cough and hoarseness, but I am reluctant to take it because it makes me drowsy. Does anyone else have the same trouble with baclofen? Dr. also suggested repeating an endoscopy with a 48 hr. pH test.
Taking Diltiazem, Lisinopril, Aspirin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Ranitidine as well. Have been having constant stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chest pains <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the doctors are not able to find the cause- at least they don’t think it is a cardiac one./the chest pains/ My gastroenterologist suggested I stop taking Ranitidine and switch to Pantroprazole. 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.
poodle has been upper and lower bleeding for 2 days. She's on pepcid BID.
COPD is not common in a brief period of smoking but is likely with prolonged smoking. Acid reducers like Zantac, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Tagamet as well as PPI proton pump inhibitors like Prevacid protonix and Aciphex commonly help acid reflux. Valium and other benzodiazepines help anxiety. With respect to diarrhea, dexadrine commonly causes that side effect, and many others do as well.
That will at times cause extreme pain that goes right to the back. I take protonix for the GERD and gastritis. It's been two weeks and I feel great!
I cut the sodas out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fast food. So? What do you think? I have had the blood tests, xrays <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> EKGs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a stress test. Nothing abnormal except normal abonomalities.... Does the synthyroid need to be adjusted not only for the levels in a person but for the person's weight??? I don't have high blood pressure, mine runs low normally. The last visit to the ER said I had gastritis and they did all kinds of blood tests.
I am getting a second opinion because think I should have another scope. Anyway, try some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> try to stay away from the ppi if possible. They are very hard to stop after long term use and I think that they make it more difficult to digest your food. I notice I burp alot since I have been on mine. Also, try eating small meals frequently. That may help any inflammation heal. Also, stay away from caffine, chocolate, colas, tomato sauce and spicy foods as they may irritate you more.
The only one suggested is a combination of Bismuth, metronidazole, tetracycline <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> an H2-blocker (i.e. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> or Zantac). If amoxcillin is a problem, you can consider the regimen outlined above, or a combination of metronidazole/biaxin/PPI. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential. This answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - the information presented is for patient education only.
, where the pain is real bad, I get extremely nauseous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a fever. He just issues me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tells me to relax. Makes me feel like a hypochrondriac. Somethings's just not right...
I will anxiously await any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all replys. I am living on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> now with little relief. My Pharmacy puts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> at $737. for 180 40mg.tabs of protonix and $570 for Pantoprazole.
) I talked to her about the Prevacid and she advised me to quit taking it and manage the reflux w/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> AC or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> Complete over the counter, she advised 1 in AM <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 2 in PM. The package insert says not to take more than 2 in 24 hour period. For 6 days followed package and did not take more than 2/24 hrs and slowly noticed a decrease of the palpatations. Today there was increase of acid so I followed the Internists directive that I could take 3/24hrs one in AM and two PM...
You can also take note of what you eat,when you eat and the consequences of such so you can finetune your lifetstle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> diet to avoid discomfort. Nexium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> of the world could shut down too much of the stomach acid production to the extent when you eat again,you suffer from too little acid to digest your food and poorly digested food would be passed on to the intestines and mingle with bacteria to form gas,and cause infatulence.
There is also a small area right above my belly button that is somewhat tight, but this has been present for years. I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> Complete <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Pepto-Bismol on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> off since the beginning.
I have used ranitadine, gaviscon, Tums, Rolaids, Tagamet, pepcid, Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> most recently <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>. I am taking 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> a day, still having reflux at least 2-3 times per week. Now PCP has put me on Reglan at night which helps with the reflux but I am unable to sleep taking it (up every hour or two with jitteriness, insomnia and nightmares).
I have taken Prevacid, Prilosec, Nexium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Aciphex, along with H2 inhibitors; zantac, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tagament. I would assume it works just like the other PPI's. I had to play with them before actually getting one that works I now use Aciphex and have had great success with it. protonix is one of the new and improved PPI's. This can be given IV as well as oral.
I am afraid of cancer so I am afraid to stop the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepcid</span>. I think the licorice helps, maybe I will try to give up the pepcid.
