Protonix withdrawal symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Protonix withdrawal symptoms

protonix

I've been on Protonix for several years, recently my dosage was upped to two 40 mg. I have nighttime reflux, never any symptoms during the day. All lifestyle changes made, bed elevation, not eating after 6:00pm, etc. etc. My doctor, whom I consider an able physician, has repeatedly assured me of the safety of the PPI class of drugs. Even said her 9 year old daughter was on Protonix.
My husband has locked my stash in the safe and bought an eyedropper to measure my doses. I am aware that I don't have enough for a nice year long withdrawal. At 58mgs I was on and having 4000mgs left I was wondering what you guys suggest. Should I just quit cold turkey? I want to make an appointment with my physician but the last time I talked to him about methadone he said he was not versed in it and didn't have a good enough relationship with me to help (that was a long time ago).
I'm 4 days in with withdrawal and suffering from all the symptoms - Depression, anxiety, de-personalization, shaking, unable to do normal task, can't drive, no appeite, dizzyness, insomina, fast heart beat.... Can benadryl help with some of these symptoms? If I take it at night? Or in the day as well? I know I did a few post on anxiety with my issue, but I need to know if this can help?
I can't function if I'm too high to move but the panic and all physical symptoms are even scarier. Dr doesn't think withdrawal lasts more than 3 days for ssris. It's been 3 weeks of symptoms for me.
Over time, both create physical dependency and can be very difficult to withdraw from, especially the Klon. You may be in tolerance withdrawal because all of your symptoms are signature benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms. Do not quit these drugs cold turkey. They must be tapered.
I tried taking xanax to help me sleep, but soon as I wake up I feel severe agitated, brain fog, dizzy, and kind of a salty taste in my mouth, no appitiate, and this is not good because I need to eat to keep my symptoms in check. I been off it for 2 days but only took it for 3 will these symptoms go away soon? I also take protonix for gerd and ibs. I need some input I never felt so miserable before and I was in the hospital a lot in september. Please comment....
Your Doc must suspect an ulcer or nearly to prescribe protonix. Otherwise it probably would have been tigan. Protonix is a ppi (proton pump inhibitor) which shuts down some of the acid producing sites in the stomach. Good luck to you...
Usually they are snorted or injected for effect. In other words, it gets into your system faster and it gives you the high faster. Sometimes it could also be the method that is addicting, especially with injecting. And yes, a high fever could be a symptom of withdrawal. I am sorry, I did not see your other post, so what day is he on?
Every time I get off the Norco, the withdrawal symptoms from the methadone come back. I don't know how long they last. Some people say a year, and I've delayed it by taking the Norco according to some.
Another thing i forgot to add is when my arm was burning i had a burning sensation in the middle of my chest but more on the left side which hurt. Im scared and have no idea what to do and reading symptoms of stuff makes me think i have it. Sorry about the wall of Text but please get back to me with any ideas!
I know this is silly, but it's just ironic that they symptoms of withdrawal are similiar to these common aliments......
DRY WINE and other NONSWEETENED ALCOHOL in limited amount may be ok, but it can aggravate SIBO so find out by yourself if it triggers symptoms in your case.. Glucose and sucrose - table sugar are not recommended despite the fact that they help in absorption of fructose because they are often not tolerated and may cause small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
With the Methadone finally getting out of my system (I am still having some withdrawal symptoms, but nothing that I can't handle), I took 40 mg. of Oxy and it was enough to ease my pain and I do take a Vic ES or two on some days when the breakthru pain is really bad from the bowel obstructions I get constantly. Doing the withdrawal and taper, I ended up getting off the Methadone and also got my tolerance down to a level I'm comfortable with.
It took over a week for the withdrawal symptoms to disappear and I felt much better. Until this last week or so. Now my thighs (especially inner) and crotch area are achy and get that numbness feeling sometimes like I used to experience when I was 9 months pregnant. I tend to notice a bloated (constipated like) feeling at the same time as the achy thighs. Now I am wondering if I should go back to my neurologist or go back to my stomach doctor?
you will experience some rebound pain when you come off the pain meds this is normal i have an an auto immune disorder as a result of liver disease, the pain is somwhat comparable to fibro.
I know doing what I did for 2+ years totally threw my body outta whack, and after 16 days I should not expect to be perfectly healthy. But I am curious if anyone else has experienced similar symptoms. Any thoughts are appreciated.
I have had cardiac workups and also had an upper endoscopy showing minor symptoms of gerd. I was placed on protonix and have had no relief from my symptoms. My internal med doctor can't determine the connection between eating and the shortness of breath. It gets so bad that after I eat and walk around that my heart pounds hard and fast and pvc's also occur. There also seems to be some pressure or feeling that the food is backing up back into my throat.
Breakthrough pain is different from withdrawal symptoms. If you are having severe pain from your original accident, really 3 Norcos a day is not much at all. There should be little, if any physical withdrawal symptoms from that amount. You can try substituting plain Tylenol (taken in the dosages recommended on the bottle) instead of the Norco, but not in addition to the Norco as they both contain Tylenol.
However, as I mentioned in other posts about tramadol and as you can see with Jeff, there are those who will experience w/d just as or more severe than hydrocodone or other opiates but this is very rare. Withdrawal symptoms can also include not only w/d from the endorphins your body is not producing as much of but intensified by the lack of serotonin and norepinephrine at certain receptor sites. And yes it can be very effective for stomach pain as is darvocet.
ER doc said my liver counts were very good and i am no longer anemic. i do take protonix for stomach problems cause i have h-pylori and did the 10 day treatment of antibiotics. pain is still there and doc says he cannot give me antibiotics again cause i will always have h-pylori antibodies and i just need to keep taking the protonix. i feel like i am running into a brickwall. i have never had so much pain in my life. the pain on my right side brings me to my knees crying.
But as others have said n here stoping Xanax cold turkey is not a good idea at all. While stopping opiates cold turkey causes withdrawal and makes you feel like you re dying no physical damage is done and its not gonna hurt you.
Also, I never experienced any withdrawals, never felt bad at all while weaning. If you have any feelings of withdrawal, than you know you are weaning much too fast. You really need to be under a doctors care for this, it isn't something you should be doing on your own.
You can discuss more specialized testing - such as an ERCP with Sphincter of Oddi manometry - to evaluate for Spincter of Oddi dysfunction. This can replicate gallbladder symptoms in those who had a cholecystectomy. Other options can include a gastric emptying scan to evaluate for gastroparesis as well as motility studies to evaluate for esophageal dysmotility. Atypically, these options can lead to the symptoms you are describing.
However the next day I woke up with the worst gnawing stomach pain along with other hangover symptoms AND I BARELY DRANK ANYTHING. My appetite was completely ruined for weeks. I had to force myself to eat. The gastro doc put me on Protonix thinking that would help. I had up and down days on it. I went to another GI doc for a second opinion.
It took me a full 30 days taking the norco 10mgs as prescribed(back then it was 8 a day) for my body to have any withdrawal symptoms,but with Codeine i only took 20 of them within 2 weeks for a wisdom tooth extraction where my Jaw got a hairline fracture and I withdrew a hundred times worse that time and was constipated for the whole time i was taking them basically,I had to take Stool Softner to use the toilet while on Codeine,only minor constipation with the Oxy,in the middle with the hydroco
So I did cold turkey. My withdrawal symptoms went on for two weeks, out of body experiences, extreme stomach pain and feeling I was at deaths door. Eventually I recovered and later saw the doctor and asked why the get off it comment. She responded bad side effects which I looked up and found Osteoporosis ( I am female).. I also looked up the drug and found that it causes fatigues.
All my doc said was to up the protonix. Im in PT to help as well but if anyone would like to share a short summary of their story from pre-diag symptoms through successful treatment, I would really like to see how the different docs have handled your speciific case. The most effective thing Ive done on my own was recently bought an herbal cream that has capsicum in it whihc has done more than any of the other pharma routes.
When you go off the gluten you will experience a gluten withdrawal - mild headaches (maybe) or an increase in your symptoms. Stick with it. Some find these go away within a few days, other a few weeks. It took about a month with me, with the symptoms getting weaker and weaker as the month went on.
Everyone reacts differently to any drug, but most people gain. Cymbalta also has the worst withdrawal symptoms - I thought I was nuthouse crazy or dying. I was then put on Topomax, which actually promotes weight loss (it can upset your stomach at first, but it DOES go away after your body gets used to it, PROMISE) and I lost about 40lbs in the first 2 to 2 1/2 months. By about 10 months I had lost 100lbs. Everyone reacts differently - but most anti-depressants cause weight gain.
4 years ago I got into a stressful work situation AND a stressful relationship, which were connected (I work with my bf). I began living with him and working with him. I began feeling anxiety symptoms return within 6 months, but continued managing them and I didn't feel that I had anxiety because of how I managed my symptoms. Around 1 year ago I began to feel a "flashing" sensation of heat on the left side of my head, and sometimes up my back.
