Protonix compared to prilosec

Common Questions and Answers about Protonix compared to prilosec


Our GI wanted to give me samples of it for Jenna since my copay went up to 100 for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span> and I asked him what it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> and that is what he told me, needless <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> say we did not change meds since the protonix was working fine, I didnt want to risk changing meds.
17, 2009 - The FDA today warned patients not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> combine Plavix with Nexium, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>, and nine other drugs -- including Prozac and Tagamet. The drugs may make the anti-clotting drug Plavix dangerously less effective, the FDA says. They block an enzyme in the body that turns the drug into its active form. Plavix is the second most-prescribed drug in the world. It's not the first time questions have been raised about the potent stomach-acid-reducing drug prilosec blunting the benefit of Plavix.
The allergist is the one that told me he thinks it is due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> acid reflux and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>, but I am trying the pepcid ac, cause if that works then I don't need a stronger one.........maybe you should ask your dr. if switching would be better..............
Its just a psychological way to overcome . <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> ease with which Doc conduct surgery , i wish if someone could come up with solutions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> lead a healthy life post GB Surgery .There would be lot of takers for that.
The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> should help. If it doesn't, there is surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> correct the problem. Talk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> your Gastroenterologist. Good luck!
my palpitations have reduced to nothing infact ive reduced esophageal spasms by 80 to 90% <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> when they first started 3yrs ago back then my neck and head would move due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the severity of the palpitations. one other massively important factor for me is 6 weeks ago i raised my bed posts at the head side by putting a couple of bricks under them my palpitations alleviation came when i hit a certain number (6 inch) 5 inch wasn't enough inclination but 6 works good !
Dear Nanci, I certainly feel for you, I agree that perhaps you need to take a break from some of these meds (natural or otherwise) and try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> determine what is going on. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> and at one time was told to take one in am and one in pm, it made me feel absolutely worse. I don't know if that is what is happening to you as well but I thought I would share anyway. Regarding DGL, I have been taking the Enzymatic Therapy brand since Feb and I have never felt better in over 3 years.
In one study, omeprazole-treated patients required significantly fewer additional dilation sessions and had improved dysphagia (painful swallowing) symptom scores <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the ranitidine-treated group. The presence of esophagitis and benefit of PPIs in these patients supports the idea that PPIs reduce recurrent stricture formation.
I'm on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span> right now which is supposed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be WAY better than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> or Nexium so hopefully I'll just need some antibiotics. My doc also called in a script for Regulan to help with the nausea but no relief yet. Thanks for the info probably just saved me a lot of time & pain. FINISHED!!
to make a long story short, I am feeling a lot better <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> when I originally made this post, but I'm not where I want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be. I rarely drink alcohol now and when I do, I can easily tell when things are going to turn sour for me the next day. Coffee is also a big nono. I think it may be the caffeine because energy shots leave me feeling terrible as well.
I've heard a lot of bad things about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> and don't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be on it for years. I'm certainly not opposed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> standard medical treatments -- I know some of them really work -- but I'd prefer to do it naturally if possible. to a couple of people who have been told they need to take an anti-depressant for their "globus hystericus," or whatever the h.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> doesn't seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have real problems taken long-term from what I hear, as I've been on it for years, maybe 5 years or so. Also a Net search on this topic seems to confirm this. While it wasn't supposed to be taken long-term, people have done so and it's one of those things that I generally never hear problems about, at least it's not one of those news stories that shows up where there are lawsuits left and right.
The main action of this group of pharmaceuticals is the long acting reduction of gastric acid production. These include Prevacid, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>, Nexium and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span>. These drugs are convenient <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> use and can be initially useful, but many find that the side effects outweigh the benefits. When it comes to quitting them, one will find that it is not so easy. PPI drugs are supposed to be used for a restricted period of time, however most patients continue their use indefinitely.
Third, everything I read (which I am sure is miniscule <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> your knowledge base) indicates that the high positive Anti-DNA results coupled with the high positive ANA results, the photosensitivity, the malar rash, and the other rash on my neck from which the skin biopsy was taken (no results yet) point to SLE--the systemic kind, not just the skin/discoid kind.
Thank you for your post. I have been taking Nexium, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span> etc. the past 3-4 years. The pain I get is definitely muscular. I do NOT smoke so that is not a problem. My esophageal sphincter is fine as it showed on the endonscopy, only chronic gastritis which has been under control for the past 6 months. I just went to a wonderful cadiologist on Monday and he did understand, he has PVCs too and told me it may be one of 3 types of arrythmia, and all 3 are bening.
The only reason I am taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 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.
Please do some research on MPS and Trigger Point Therapy and find a doctor that does it. The pain of the small injections is easy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> endure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the abdominal pain we suffer without the injections. It so far is the only thing I've found that makes sense and fits. Not sure it explains why or how...but at this point I can't focus on that. I just know that with the numbing injections and the pain severe abdominal pain is gone or tolerable now, most days. Hope this helps someone!
She decides it was acid reflux and gives me a months worth of protonix and schedules an appt. for me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see someone in gastreology. So I've been taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span> and I went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see that doctor and he said he thinks I have acid reflux. I've been taking the protonix as directed but still all the time I feel like something is stuck in my throat. Feels like it's right behind my tongue in the tonsil area. Sometimes it's on the left and sometime's it's on the right but it's always there.
Been to the doctor once and since I have tried a steroid, Mucinex, Claritin and now I am trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>. I probably should go back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the doctor but after reading all the posts, I am beginning to think it will be a waste of time. And...this feels like the worst for me. The last few days I have been eating very lightly and feeling nauseous for no reason. I know it is me just being afraid I will start coughing due to the tickle and then worrying about throwing up.
A recent study lends new support to these findings. Of 141 people with heavily symptomatic MVP, 60% had low magnesium leavels, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>compared</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> only 5% in the control group. After 5 weeks of supplementation, the % of those with chest pain dropped from 96% to 47%, palpitations from 93% to 51%, anxiety from 84% to 47%, low energy from 74% to 34%, faintness from 64% to 6%, and difficulty breathing from 84% to 39%.
One other thing though, when pushed upon I get a cramp in the back ? Sometimes I expect <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> c a swollen spot there but no...I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prilosec</span>. I was told the pancreas in on right side; but don't know about the spleen. I've had this for almost 4 yrs now. Man, it wears one down. Also, just started of late, i feel like a pinching now and once in awhile like being stabbed with a blunt bone....
Not sure if I have it but will look into that thank you for the info. Lilly, I am going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> look up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span>. I was on 300 mg Ranitidine in February which the first gastro prescribed along with 40 mg omeprazole and I thought it was helping at first but after a month I still had pain and most specifically the stabbing came back so not sure. About Nexium I am also thinking it is not the right drug for me. Maybe I gave up on Dexilant too fast? Not sure what to do.
Was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span> for the longest time, switched <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Aciphex last year after an unexplained chronic episode took place over a matter of weeks (blame interferon here, too??? ..... hmmmmmmmmmm, could be my catch-all for anything from ingrown toenails to hair-on-the-palms to excessive drooling. Yeah, that's the ticket!). Hope you are doing well, too, Jim.
I thought up until now that I may have been the first to discover this but would like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> know if anyone else has any real answers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> this as being a connection? I would like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> know how many people feel that they get atrial fibrillation and feel that it may be related to gas or full, bloated stomach, intestinal or digestive tract troubles etc?
I do drink coffee every day, but I quit smoking 13 years ago and hate cigarette I'm living with it every day. I'm 46, low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> average blood pressure, I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nix</span> for pretty bad acid reflux, I'm constantly clearing my throat and live on cough drops to loosen my phlegm, but I do not have a running or mucous nose, I have a mild case of asthma yet have been using my inhaler often this past year and feeling very heavy in the chest.
We don't have one until the 16th. Systems like a lifetime away!! Girls, it is so nice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have others <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> share this experience with! How are you ladies feeling? I feel good all day, then start feeling really crappy around 5pm. Boy, it can take a girl down!! But, it lets me know my babies are there! :).
