Protonix vs prilosec

Common Questions and Answers about Protonix vs prilosec

protonix

As an additional fyi, there are quite a few studies showing Nexium's superiority within acid control and the healing of erosive esophagitis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>, Prevacid, and Aciphex (see Miner, Castell, Lauritsen, Lind).. in fact, protonix proves to be the LEAST effective in these arenas. Nexium is not only an appropriate choice for someone with Barret's, but the BEST choice and the least expensive option for the patient above.
it hurts when I eat food, all the way from my throat, down the tube, all the way down to the stomach, it hurts all the way; I get horrible acid pain, and I am taking 40 mg Prilosec to boot! The day of the Air France 447 terrorist event (06/01/2009), I was hospitalized and they put me on protonix 40 mg and it was a Godsend. protonix made ALL the discomfort go away immediately, completely. I haven't taken all the PPIs but protonix is the best for me by far.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> (Pantoprozole) does not give me problems...maybe a little weight loss. omeprazole (Prilosec or Zegerid) causes me all kinds of problems. Headache, chest pain, red/irritated eyes, all kinds of body aches, constipation and extreme thrist. Problem is...protonix is by script only and VERY EXPENSIVE! Someone talk to me about this. Has anyone else experienced these problems with omeprazole?
Both of those drugs cause me severe side effects..quite scarry actually. Is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> and Nexium the same thing? Are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> and Nexium considered H2 Inhibitiors instead of PPI's? I see that I can purchase nexium at Wal-Mart and Wal-greens at a reasonable price. Thanks in advance for any help or direction.
Prilosec, Acidphex, Kapidex, and protonix. I was provided some relief but symptoms were still there. As the years went on, the regurgitation and pain got worse. I started to have chronic nausea as well. I was never feeling 100%. I had an endoscopy done this past May. Two areas were biopsied, a region of the stomach and an area right above the GE junction. My doctor said he wanted to make the irregular tissue wasn't Barrett's. He had a hunch it wasn't but he was being safe rather than sorry.
I'm on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> right now which is supposed to be WAY better than Prilosec 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 Goldie...you probably just saved me a lot of time & pain. FINISHED!!

o) Of note <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> is a proton pump inhibitor. Available proton pump inhibitors include: omeprazole (Prilosec), lansoprazole (Prevacid), rabeprazole (Aciphex), pantoprazole (protonix), esomeprazole (Nexium), and Zegarid, a rapid release form of omeprazole. What physician's often overlook and the package inserts on these drugs usually omits are several subtle, yet important side effects including joint, muscle and/or leg pains.
I do not have severe acid reflux however, as I suspected I do have abnormal levels of acid in my throat. I have tried Pevacid, Prilosec and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> and none of those helped. If this doesn't help, I am told there probably is nothing that can be done. That leads me to this...what is the success rate of Nexium vs the others and will it interfere with any natural supplements that I am already taking? I was also told that it is possible that i do have a floating hiatal hernia.
Is reglan the only RX being offered for your refulx and nausia? How about prilosec or prevacid?
Zantac is a supressor I believe while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>/Prevacid/Prilosec is a total blocker ... first line of defense is Zantac (ranatadine) and then they move onto the blockers .. they oftentime actually use the blockers and then use Zantac for break thru acid in extreme situations. SO SO GLAD they found your problem. Was it H-Pylori? Ulcerations and precursors to ulcers are not fun stuff ..
The problem is that I'm not responding to any medications and suffer from excruciating flare ups about every 3 weeks. I've used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>, Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Carafate plus a few more meds for cramping. I've had an Endoscopy, Endoscopic Ultrasound, MRI, Cat Scan w/contrast, Abdominal Ultrasound, X-Rays - all were normal with the exception of the gastritis and Duodenitis = NO H.Pylori. I'm scheduled for a colonoscopy in a few weeks.
I have a hiatal hernia that was diagnosed several years ago and I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span> for 3-4 weeks about 6 times/year for that. I have noticed that my fibrillations always feel as though they're starting in my stomach. I get this odd, bubbly feeling in my stomach that seems to rise and within a few minutes, the fibrillations start. Is it possible that digestive/hernia problems can cause this? I've never had them before (I'm a 43 year old woman, and am overweight).
Prilosec doesn't seem to 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.
Second, try as I may and try as I might, I can't really find anywhere on the Internet a titer number associated with normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. abnormal anti-DNA (ds). Does anyone have any info? Thanks in advance for any info you may be able to share. By the way, I've always been known for my ironclad immune system. I am NEVER sick! When everyone else at the office has caught every bug that comes along, I'm still rocking along. I can't remember a time in the last decade that I've missed work because I'm ill.
The main action of this group of pharmaceuticals is the long acting reduction of gastric acid production. These include Prevacid, Prilosec, Nexium and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>protonix</span>. These drugs are convenient to 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.
When I woke up this morning I could tell my stomach and esophogus were upset with me, and when I finally ate lunch (several tums, water, and a prilosec later) 15 minutes or so later the bloating and heart fluttering kicks in. Please if anyone knows a way to heal yourself from this condition let me know. I have been living in discomfort for 6 months and I am afraid that my 29 years of Moutain Dew and Taco Bell finally caught up with me....
