Protonix and zantac together

Common Questions and Answers about Protonix and zantac together

protonix

The chiropractor said that I don't have an injury, but fascia...itis in neck and shoulder. The only meds I'm on now are protonix for reflux, and clonodine for hot flashes, and wellbutrin. If it was rebound pain from getting off pain meds, I would think it would subside a little every now and then. Anyone know about this possibly being a side effect of taking protonix?
alot of the foods that I eat seem to contain gas. One recommend garlic, ginger and orange peel, boil together and drink real hot, that worked for a while, but then the gas pain conitnued. Any more suggestions from any one will be highly appreciated. Thanks. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/337994'>Stomach Gas and Arrythmia</a>.
My blood work is all normal except for my C-reactive protien and total protien were high, but my white blood cell count was normal. Ive been on prilosec, previced, zantac, and im currently on protonix and NuLev. I take NuLev 6 times a day to keep my food down. Ive been "diagnosed" with lactose intolerance and acid reflux but again there was no evidence of any of those conditions.
(may try the prevacid again) Zantac and watching what I eat and Mylanta Extra Strength is my companions now. I do have a hiatal hernia per the EDG and Reflux per the EDG (neither, I was told is really bad)but now I am taking charge and diligently trying various lifestyle changes, elevating the head of the bed with bricks, avoiding stresses.
We talked about the next step and after talking for quite awhile, she feels I'm a canddiate for Protonix and perhaps Paxil to calm the anxiety this has caused. I know you take Protonix Jenn and like it. The nurse did explain that what works for one may not work for another. She herself takes Protonix and likes it alot. She has bad reflux and the Protonix has improved her quality of life.
worsened IBS - bad abdominal cramps (caused by Nexium together with fever and Zantac) a white-coated and burning tongue (caused by Prevacid, Zantac, Protonix, Pepcid, Riopan). I'd like to know if anybody has experienced intollerance to the various antireflux medicines similar to mine. Have you ever had a severely burning tongue caused by them?
My question is could a bunch of different medications at different times cause stomach problems. I take 40mg twice a day of protonix, also 2 150mg of zantac. to help but not helping much anymore. I have no insurance other then workmans comp.
I empathize with you. I was just diagnoses with gastritis and i tried Tums, Mylanta, Zantac and then I was rushed to the emergency room because I felt as though I was going to have a stroke. They took an EKG, monitored my heart, and took blood and urine samples. Everything came out normal, so they gave me an IV of sodium chloride (Pepcid). As of now it seems to be working. In your case, I pray you dont have can and that you will soon find a remedy to your problem.
Dr. switched me to Protonix, and it seemed to help my stomach ache, but not the chest pain, tightness, and the feeling of something stuck in middle of my chest is still there. My appitite got a little bit better, but still cannot be compared to before. I never had any GI symptoms before. My resting Heartbeat dropped from 81 to 68, BP dropped 118/78 to 96/60. I did some research, and wondering maybe I 1) developed hiatal hernia when falling on that water ride and got hit by bag?
never! he probably treats you like a queen... doesn't he? When dh and i got together he kept burping NASTY and i would FLIP OUT! (to this day i yell at him) and he'd only say: 'yeah yeah yeah, i know, im not your 'rico-suave' latin guy that doesn't pass any sort of wind, right?' hehehe He kept threatening that once we'd get married, he was gonna fart all he wanted infront of me.... ....he didn't brake his promise! but i can tell you, he is such a clown, he is so funny....
I've asked my cardiologist and my Gastro doc about them being tied together and they both deny it! I think its related to the vegal nerve. When my stomach, esophagus spasms, I get the palpitations. It is really unnerving and very frightening for me, as I have never felt anything like it before. I've been to the ER twice because I thought I was having a heart attack. I had the EKG's, Stress Test, and even an arteriogram. All showing a perfectly healthy heart.
They came out of the blue. I've heard that Zantac, Pepcid, ranitidine (generic Zantac), and other H2 blockers can also cause heart beat irregularities. I need advice in tapering off. There's B-12 deficiency in my family and osteoporosis, other reasons to get off PPIs and H2 blockers. But I don't know how to safely taper off the Nexium without risking serious esophagus problems. My doctors are useless. They think I'm making it all up.
I am really nervous about having to put up with the pain after surgery and GERD symptoms together. I really need to have GERD settled down before then.
Pharmacists are DOCTORS of PHARMACOLOGY and they know more about drugs than any 10 GP's put together. Thank you for writing and I'm very glad that you are off all the meds now and regaining your health. But don't put ALL the blame on the medication.
A week ago I started having anxiety and have had it every day since. I also started on that day Protonix 40 mg. I don't think that would interfer with the levothyroxine. I was taking it in the am but switched to pm and it really didn't make a difference. It does help me with my stomach pain. I went to my MD today and absolutely got no help. She is sending me to a GI doctor about my stomach. I am about at my wits end with the anxiety and not knowing what is causing it.
Half of your body feels bad and trys to get better, but the otherside is to busy growing a baby...mix those together it = being really tired is what you get. I hope you feel better soon. But I wanna know what they gave you for the nausea. Keep in touch hun!
I took the over-the-counter for 2 days, had a slice of pizza, and had the WORST heartburn. I stopped the Prilosec, and took Zantac for a couple days - nothing. Then I stopped taking everything and for the next few days felt pretty good. I saw a naturopath, changed my diet completely, elevated my bed, lost weight, etc. About a week later, the sore throat started, along with a cough, and the choking sensation again. I saw an ENT, and he looked through my nose and down my throat.
Has anyone been able to heal their duodonal ulcers with Zantac and if so, how large was your dosage? Side effects? I realize I'm about 15 years older than last time I used Zantac so side effects may get me this time but it's something I've at least had success with in the past. these PPIs are about to kill me.
I ave had way too many surgeries & tests to know that this in not uncommon. I got to the point where I tell them to write down what their diagnosis is because I won't remember it. I had the upper cope test before my GB surgery & he wrote down "IBS..Learn how to relax...need anti-depressants for the pain." I got mad too. I went back to my GP & he too agreed with me that it wasn't IBS or stress related.
The treatment includes things like Prilosec and/or Protonix, coupled with Zantac or the equivalent and a change in diet. The process involved higher doses of meds than regular reflux (GERD) and there is a surgical option if you aren't getting much better in a year or so. here's an article from Columbia University: www.entcolumbia.org/lprd.
I did try to stop taking now on protonix for 3 days on a low fat diet and experienced, indigestion, GERD and nausea, in which I was forced into starting them up again due to the discomfort & not knowing how long I will have to deal with the unpleasant experience. Also, being scared that it would cause other medical issue's pertaining to my digestive system or esophagus. Please advise. I know this is a long post, as well as hard it was to share with someone I don't know.
He put me on a PPI (Protonix) and said if it didn't help he would order and upper GI series. The PPI actually helped for about a year, but on occasion, sumptoms would flare back up and I would go back on the PPI. This has been going on for 3 years now. Recently, I spent Christmas Eve in ER with what I thought was a heart attack. I presented to my hospital with shortness of breath, clamy, chest pain that radiated from behind my sternum and into the back, severe bloating.
All 4 of my boys had reflux but my youngest 2 were the worst. They had to be on combos of meds together. Prevacid in the morning and zantac at night along with that we did carafate every few hours and a motility drug every few hours. Along with prethickened formula. Nathan was allergic to dairy & soy protein so he was on a prescription formula called Neocate for the longest time. He then went to an OTC hypallergenic formula.
She is also on Protonix 2x a day 40mg, and also tried Carafate and Zantac, She has only been able to eat breads and today we tried Rice pasta, it seemed to hold in her stomach somewhat. My friend who is a Pharmacists said that sometimes Erythromycin is used to treat motility problems small doses 3 to 5 mg per kilo of weight. You might want to try that I am going to try get that for my daughter. Hopefully she can hold it down. Let me know if you find out anything.
Perhaps the Nexium isn't the best drug for your condition...when I was at my worst, I took 40 mg. of Protonix each morning and 300 mg.of Zantac before bed...eventually, the pain stopped for months... I went from one specialist to another and got no real answers...someone told me I must have patience and time would heal---it frustrated me but eventually I got better and you will too...
one gastroenterologist told me after trying me on Propulsid, Prilosec. Reglan, Zantac and various antacids and other medications, performing endoscopies, ordering motility studies, sticking tubes up my nose and down my esophagus into my stomach, and then a tube directly into my stomach. I agree so much with ejay (Jan 30) about the doc and his "swallowing air" diagnosis.
The only reason I am taking the protonix is to see IF it works. My husband and I are big on natural health, but right now, we can't figure out what this is and just want to calm it down a bit until we figure it out. For me, I doubt it is CVS because the last episode I had was the ONLY one where vomiting was a factor, and it was the same day I had a vitamin B12 and B Comples shot, not sure if it caused the vomiting of not.
When I woulld get stressed out my acid in my stomach would start to cause my stomach and lower back to hurt and feel like someone was standing and turning my insides. They told me to take to Zantac and go home. For awhile it went away and wasn't as bad then I got pregnant with my second child and it got worse and over the years it has continued to get worse. I have been to many doctors none of witch have ran any test. Two nights ago it got so bad that my husband ran me into the E.R.
