Ranitidine. You can find it at walmart with the zantec it is completely safe during pregnancy ive had to take it with both of mine.
My Dr told me to take Ranitidine 150mg twice a day. Or once. Depending how bad it is. And just try to avoid greasy or spicy foods. Also don't eat to much. Instead eat several small meals throughout the day.
I too have had alot of heartburn with my meds ever since the switch from synthroid. I ended up going to a gastoenterologist who sent me for an endoscopy. Said I had a hiatal hernia and esophegitis. Now I'm taking 150 mgs of Ranitidine, twice daily. I have been on many types of meds for this and not one has really taken care of the problem. Just think there's something else going on. They then sent me for a colonoscopy, which was fine. Now the are odering a small bowel series.....yeh, what ever.
From the first trimester I've had bad heartburn. Even water gives me heartburn chewable tums are my everything.
My heartburn has awaken me..no matter was I eat or drink I've always seem to have them...third trimester and still heartburn... Who else experiences this so late in their pregnancy?
I hear you... im 32 weeks and for the past few days im starting to feel like i didi my first trimester. All day at work i feel very nauseous and a constant heartburn that i feel like i keep throwing up in my mouth and burns so bad. I know it sounds disgusting but ive tried everything promising to work and so far no luck. Thursday im talking to my doc... i'll start taking some pills she said she'll prescribe me.
I don't know the answer to taking antacids after taking Ranitidine (Zantac). I just know Ranitidine does nothing for me. Check with your doctor before doing this, but many people drink aloe vera juice diluted with water to treat their GERD. Others swear by doing the same thing with apple cider vinegar. I'm pretty sure they're okay to use in small quantities even while pregnant, but just check with your doctor before attempting.
I am 33w4d and yesterday my doc prescribed me 150mg tablets to take twice a day for heartburn. Anyone use ranitidine while pregnant? I just want to make sure its safe.
The doctors prescribed me some Ranitidine 300MG Tablets on the suspicion I may have either an ulcer or GERD. Does this medicine have the ability to cure either GERD or an Ulcer? If so, in about how much time?
My consultant has taken me off omeprazole and replaced it with ranitidine due to the fact that my magnesium is low, and is making my calcium low too. Has anyone else had experience of this change, and if so, how has your body reacted to it.
My doctor prescribed me with Ranitidine. I swear by it. Haven't had it since I started taking it.
This heartburn is seriously grinding my gears ! I jus wanna swallow 80 ice cubes nd keep them there for the rest of my pregnancy. Before I got pregnant I had never had it nd always thought ppl were over exaggerating but holy this aint no joke. I hope this isnt an open door for it to happen even after I give birth. So many changes pregnancy can give you.
I've had severe heartburn issues every since I was 14. I had an endoscopy when I was 16 and the doctors found nothing, so the prescribed me a rather high dose of Pantoprazole, which I had taken until I was 18. After a few years of being on the medicine, I noticed that the Pantoprazole alone wasn't enough to tame my daily heartburn, (which, ironically enough, wasn't set off by certain foods, but in fact tamed it.
Hi, Just approaching my 26th week and having constant heartburn. It's really bad in the evenings and was wondering what would be safe to take...if anything. I didn't want to rely on medications but this is some serious heartburn.
From my childhood, I have acid reflux problem. I sometimes used to take Ranitidine tablets to control acidity. For the last three months, my problem is really worse. A month ago, I went for medical check up and they they diagosed me to have some bacteria, H pylori I guess, they never told me. I was given anti-biotics, amoxicillin and clarithromycin for 14 days and also omeprazole for a month. After I finished my medication, I again have the same problem, a very bad one.
I have been on and off prozac for 4 years and i now am experiencing heartburn. I take 20mg at night because it makes me dizzy but i dont get the heartburn until the afternoon the next day. I was wondering is it safe to take ranitidine 150mg effervescent? I took it all the time when needed before being back on prozac and it works i was wondering does it cause any side affect?
For anyone with awful heartburn, talj to your Doctor!! Tums and Gaviscin did nothing for me. I would have a constant burning bile feeling all the way up into my mouth for months now. I couldnt sleep for it waking me and making me sick and just lived miserably with it until I finally mentioned it to my Dr. Right away she gave me a cheap prescription for Apo-Ranitidine. It is baby safe, I take it twice a day in 150 mg tiny pills....and thank you to the powers that be...I am no longer suffering.
After taking some higher doses of ibuphofen for a back injury, I started to have heartburn where my whole abdominal area from stomach to intestines felt on fire and I began having yellow stools. This has been going on for 2 months and I have lost 17 pounds. I was put on omeprazole which helped with the burning for a little while and then seemed to stop working. They tried ranitidine and it didn't work at all. Now I am on protonix 40mg twice a day.
Ok folks, heres another brilliant question; any trouble with heartburn after taking the ribavirin, I have had it real bad the last few days. If so is it ok to take tums or something to keep it at bay.
It's not in my chest, and I have never really had heartburn before, so I don't know. I go to the second Endro tomorrow. Just want to know if this is something I should mention to him or not. Thanks!
A couple years ago he also put me on 20 mg Omeprazole to take once a day for 14 days, after which he said I could start taking the Ranitidine again if i still had the heartburn.
Took 75 mg of Ranitidine in the morning before breakfast around 8am. By 8.30am, my stomach acid has come back. However, due to work and meetings, i did not get to eat breakfast till 9.30am. By this time, I did not have much appetite to eat. However, there was no heartburn, no nausea, though I felt like I was on the verge of getting the heartburn and nausea. At 11am my apetite came back and I ate the rest of my breakfast (which was only a bowl of scrambled eggs). Everything was ok. At 12.
I was prescribed any Ranitidine. The only thing that keeps my heartburn subdued.
Both the Ranitidine and Prilosec are acid reducers. So if acid reflux is causing your problems, the Prilosec should work as well if not better. You may want to consider an upper endoscopy to more comprehensively evaluate the upper GI system since an upper GI cannot evaluate if there is any inflammation. I would also suggest testing for H Pylori - a bacteria associated with inflammation and ulcers.
Took 20 mg of Omeprazole (Prilosec) in the morning before breakfast. But then I skipped breakfast (no time). felt nauseous and heartburn 2-3 hours after lunch. The severity of the nausea was pretty severe. I suspect the severity is contributed by the spicy food I had for lunch. The nausea & heartburn came back about an hour after dinner. The Nausea was pretty severe...I suspect this is at least partially attributed by the food I ate for dinner (Fried chicken that was a few days old).
