Zantac for nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac for nausea

zantac

You might consider peptobismol if nausea ensues, again spacing it out from when you took the zantac, because tums may not be so great for nausea as it is heartburn. But for me, ranitidine has not caused any nausea.
I too was prescribed zantac (Ranitidine) and I began taking them last week for nausea and was having light chest pain.( Less serious Zantac side effects may include:headache (may be severe);drowsiness, dizziness;sleep problems (insomnia);decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm; or swollen or tender breasts (in men);nausea, vomiting, stomach pain; or diarrhea or constipation so yes those are some of the side effects your having.
My sister has been in and out of the hospital for two months with severe gastroparesis. The doctors would admit her and get her stabilized, then tell her she had to eat solid food before she could go home. She'd be home for 1-3 days and start vomiting again. She'd go back and the whole dog and pony show would commence all over again. After 2 months of this, we were so frustrated I started researching everything I could find on gastroparesis.
People say crackers and ginger ale, nausea pills, etc. but nothing literally nothing at all helped me!
I was given a 2 week course of Zantac to be taken morning and evening for two weeks. Immediately after taking them, I felt good and a lot of the troubles I have been having with my mouth(white spots on tongue, sore throat) disappeared. Then, on the fourth day, it all returned with a vengeance. Sore throat, dry cough, white coated tongue, and since then has only gotten worse. I stopped the Zantac after about 12 days and on that day my neck started to ache like crazy.
Since 12/19/01, I have been experiencing constant nausea. I was hospitalized on 12/31/01 (released on 1/7/02) because the Zantac 15 (liquid) and promethazine 25 mg were not working. In the hospital, several tests were ran. The result was that there was not obstruction, and that the surgery was a success. I am currently taking Prochlorperazine 10 mg (generic for compazine). I am still experiencing pain after eating (in the pouch) and nausea. Has anyone else experienced this?
I swear by Zantac for all tummy problems. I even have a prescription to take double the max dose every day. (I have an invisible stomach issue that behaves like an ulcer and gives me pains that feel like contractions). I take it twice a day (hence it totals twice the max strength) and my stomach feels great as long as I stick to it. Over the counter comes in various strengths and the maximum strength even has an option that includes mint to give a cooling sensation.
If the stomach issues persist i would go and see your doctor. I took Zantac for quite awhile after i cleaned up as i had a ton of acid. Prevacid is OTC too and that stuff works great but is expensive. Congrats on your clean time!!

You have to pretend you're pregnant-- small meals, healthy snacks, pay attention to what may exacerbate nausea (spices, head position?) It took me months to get over daily nausea, which in my case came before eating.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with GERD and gastritis. I have been on Zantac for about 1.5 years, and used to take 150mg in the morning and 150mg before bed time. A few weeks ago, I decided to slowly get off the medication after being symptom free for six months. I wanted to get off the medication mainly due to it's side effects. At first I took 150mg every other morning and continued taking 150mg every night.
Make an appointment with your primary care physician or seek care in an emergency department for diagnosis and treatment. You can ask for nausea medication through the IV instead of oral route, which may be more effective. You could also ask for a different nausea medication like Phenergan. -Dr.
The colonoscopy showed some IBS, hemhroids and polyps. I have taken zantac,protonix,tagamet,reglan. Zofran for the nausea none has helped. I have taken zoloft and ceprexa for mentalproblems since one doctor said it is all in my head! I have lost 20 lbs which i needed to loose. Also I have had my ears , nose and throat checked. Eyes and female parts. All in good shape. My question is could I hve gastroperisis ?
My 12 year old daughter has been experiencing frequent nausea for about a month. We eliminated dairy and it is still an issue. We have tried Zantac and Previcid to no avail. Bloodwork shows normal organ functions also.
I take prilosec and zantac. Have used compazine for nausea but it doesn't do much. I have taken prescribed valium (usually 2.5 to 5 mg a day around 4 times a week) but I get anxious about becoming addicted. The anxiety is just a vicious cycle. Usually by the evening I am feeling fine and can eat supper. I will take a nature made sleep aid on nights were I find my self overworrying but sleep quite well. Any suggestions as to what could be going on.
ihave 4mg tablets and can take 2 a day.....they work good for me....i do have light nausea about half of the time but not that bad....good luck....
My husband's nurse had given him a little list of "Side Effects Management Tips", for what it's worth... For nausea: -Take Ribavirn with food. -Eat small meals. -Avoid foods or smells that trigger nausea. Try eating foods cold.* -Avoid greasy, spicy, acidic, or sweet foods.* -Try eating ginger in ginger tea, ginger ale, or gingersnaps. (Lots of ginger goodies around this time of year!
My boyfriend is 31 years old, always been very healthy and no medical conditions. For the last 13 days now he has been violently ill, nausea and vomiting, worse in AM. We thought it was heat stroke to beging with, we had a heat wave and he works outside and does not hydrate himself the way he should, went the the ER on day #6 of illness and was hydrated, several blood tests taken and told to rest and liquid diet for 24 hours. Did this and no improvement.
Try Ginger -- raw/tea/pickled/ginger cookies/gingerale, etc. Some have great success with medical marijuna. A drug, "Zofran" is used by many chemo patients for nausea. Make sure you take your ribavirin with a good-size meal that has fat in it. Drink plenty of water but not with meals. The good news is that nausea usually goes away further into treatment.

Do you actually throw up, or is it just what you would consider nausea? I've had ongoing bloating and nightly nausea for about 6-7 months now, All I can do though is ride it out...if you get to the point where you start throwing up and it lasts for more than 24 hours...could possibly be a gallbladder issue. But who knows, look up the symptoms nausea and bloating and you get an entire list of possible causes.
I tried taking zantac HB, helps some but not with the nausea. I hate this feeling of nausea. I am getting to where I do not want to eat but when my stomach is empty it actually get worse. I am thinking of calling my dr and telling him it still hurts. I had a stress test done to make sure it was not my heart. I truly believe it is my reflux acting up worst now than ever. if you find any answers or something to help please let me know.
I am a 31 yesr old accountant who has been dealing with strange episodes of nausea for about a year. It started out as occasional bouts of nausea, kind of like motion sickness, it would come and go in waves about once a week. Then it got worse, coming in waves about once a day then progressed into horrible nausea that woke me up in the middle of the night about once a week and I would dry heave all night until the sun came up.
put me on dicyclomine (Bentyl) along with the 300 mg Zantac I take everyday (been taking the Zantac for 3 months.) My biopsy came back negative for everything (no cancer, no H. pylori or anything like that). So I guess my questions is, if the nausea isn't related to gastritis or the food I eat, what else could it be? And why would my doctor put me on dicyclomine? I thought that was for IBS.
Are you doing anything for the nausea and acid reflux? Youve come so far, props to you! (: Just hang in there and Im sure baby will be out in no time.
I have been on Prozac for 2 days now. Im tired, cant concentrate, I feel very nauseated, like i could throw up at any minute. Im having trouble concentrating on my work. What can I do to feel better before I can get back into the doctor?
If they are troublesome, stop the medication. You can switch to zantac. Take probiotics supplements ( for diarrhea).
Has been on Zantac for two weeks (1 tsp. 2X a day) with slight improvement. I am extremely hesitant to put her back on Propulsid, due to family heartbeat irregularities. Is Zantac dosage appropriate for 55 lb.? After 2 wk. on Zantac, should dramatic improvement be seen? Are we on the right track assuming this is reflux again? Thanks!
Today at a follow up with my cardiologist, he said that since my other symptoms have improved, it's time to dig deeper into the chronic nausea. So back to square one. I take so many meds for nausea it's ridiculous but since treating the heart failure at least I can eat a bit. This discussion is related to Chronic Nausea.
Ativan should be carefully taken though so I would ask your doctor about it. And I take it for anxiety, not nausea. But I've noticed that they use it for nausea too. I just don't know for temporary use or long term use and I would hate for you to become addicted to the stuff so yeah I would check with your doctor if interested in ativan.
