Common Questions and Answers about Zegerid ingredients

prilosec

and been on several medications; Acifex, Pepsid, Nexium, Zegerid?, Prilosec. He has no pain in his chest or throat with these episodes. They occur within 5 minutes of eating and can last up to 30 minutes. After the gagging/coughing stops, he is extremely tired, to the point of having to take a nap. We are at a loss as to the cause. We have noticed he has a reaction to mainly oils, although some food he can eat if cooked extremely done. This has been occuring since Thanksgiving 2008.
suggested another med to try? There may be inert ingredients such as lactose fillers that he may be having issues with and not the med itself? There are many many other meds out there to explore with your Dr. But, sometimes these Docs are set in there ways and are non-believers that this can be the case .. BUT I have seen many many thru the years post that they have issues that disappear with the right med.
The asterick "*" should have been next to "Pepsid", not "Prevacid". "Zegerid" contains both a PPI and and Antacid so should not be taken within 2-3 hours of the ribavirin for maxium riba absorption. Also forgot to add that in general the PPIs are more effective for GERD (chronic reflux) than either the H-2 pumps or antacids.
maybe because of other ingredients in it or its processed. although it said it doesnt raise BP. have you tried/know about xylitol, erythol? it said its a better substitute than other sugar form. havent tried though but still finding more and more info. probiotic also good.
I was then moved to 40mg Zegerid which was increased to 2x daily about 12 months ago. For about the last year the Zegerid has only been working about 25% of the time. My biggest issue like most of you stated is that my main symptom is the excessive belching and here lately, I have a burning sensation in my throat, equal to where my neck is located, that comes and go's. I'm taking carafate 4x per day to coat the esophagus, which helps control the burning in my throat.
NO doctors will help!! They said GERD may be causing it, but I've been on Zegerid, 40 mg., 2x day for a month, and this is only getting worse?! I went to a pulmonary specialist, lung function test normal, but yet these coughing attacks - the mucous goes down lungs and gives me ASTHMA! but every time these doctors check my lungs they said they're CLEAR!!@! Yeah, because I'm not having an attack now! It's like NONE of them "get it!
If you are getting bloating with a lot of gas after taking the lactulose, you may be having a bad reaction to one of the ingredients in Lactulose or drinking lots of fizzy drinks. There are other stool softeners that your doctor can prescribe. Be aware too, that taking some medications (like pain relief) can also cause constipation. Hope you got on OK with your procedure today. Best wishes.
DIGEST Rc should be ok if no stones. i would switch to this after PEPOGEST used up as itcontains several vital ingredients not just pepprmint. I forgot about this product or would have mentioned it sooner. Se this article about hiatal hernia: http://www.joyfullivingservices.com/hiatalhernia.
Says my Acid Reflux (GERD) is not under control with my current meds (Prevacid 20 mg) so he prescribed additional meds (Zegerid 40 mg). He explained to me how the acid backs up in the esophagus into the throat and causes the cough. Especially while lying down. I was tested for this back in 2005 (Barium Esophagram) and diagnosed. Go figure......I don't have any symptons of heartburn at all. What I can't undertand is why the cough acts up every few months even when I'm on the meds.
I noticed I had some mild burning in my chest and middle of my back the past few days now and I been taking Zegerid Otc for the acid but that didn't stop me from eating poorly and this last bout really hit me hard so I cut off everything that can produce Gas but I'm still feeling the pains off and on when ever I feel a gas flair up then it goes away for a breif amount of time.
