Difference between protonix and omeprazole

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between protonix and omeprazole


Avatar n tn There is no data that suggests a significant difference between Protonix and Nexium. Nexium is an appropriate appoach to Barrett's esophagus. Prilosec and Nexium are also very similar. Prilosec has a cost advantage of having a generic equivalent. These questions can be addressed with your personal physician or GI physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar m tn The chiropractor said that I don't have an injury, but fascia...itis in neck and shoulder. The only meds I'm on now are protonix for reflux, and clonodine for hot flashes, and wellbutrin. If it was rebound pain from getting off pain meds, I would think it would subside a little every now and then. Anyone know about this possibly being a side effect of taking protonix?
Avatar n tn com and search for omeprazole or prilosec. I was taking 40mg omeprazole for almost 3 weeks and it caused severe anxiety, chest pain, dizziness, tight feeling in my throat, arm and leg weakness, abdominal pain, insomnia, and high BP.I thought I was dying. I stopped taking the omeprazole and after 2 weeks started to feel better but I am not completely symptom free yet. Ask your doctor to try the 10 mg dose first or ask about other options for acid reflux.
1210142 tn?1266080631 I have read a lot about the interaction between Plavix and PPI’s but he thinks only Omeprazole have more effect on Plavix, not Pantoprazole. Please, let me know what your opinion is and have you heard about any interaction between those two? I don’t need an additional heart attack.
709686 tn?1277435759 Both of those drugs cause me severe side effects..quite scarry actually. Is Protonix and Nexium the same thing? Are Protonix 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.
Avatar m tn Upon seeing my Primary dcotor again, he gave me a GI cocktail which helped, although I was asymptomatic that morning - figures huh?, and he told me to stop Celebrex and began me on prescription omeprazole (20 mg) once daily for a month and then to see if my problems improve). Around this same time I bought the best probiotic I could find at the health food store (refrigerated with over 40 billion strains or something).
Avatar n tn Besides the cost, is their truly a difference between Nexim and Prilosec. The active components in Nexium are esomprazole magnesium and in Prilosec are Omeprazole Magnesium. Also, Nexium comes in 20 mg and 40 mg capsules and Prilosec is sold over the counter in 20 mg tablets. My GI switched me to Nexium because Aciphex gave me terrible side effects and Protonix made my water brash symptoms ever worse. I have tried Prilosec in the past and it didn't have much of an effect for me.
Avatar n tn Nausau upon wakening, some reflux, terrible heartburn every 3 days or so that lasts all day and a pain in my upper right quandrant that flucuates between severe and just a gnawing feeling. Have had too many tests to mention. Had my gallbladder removed a few weeks ago. Still feel the same. Now my doctor is thinking maybe it's the sphincter of the oddi. Does anyone have any information about this? Any comments are truly apprectiated.
Avatar n tn Now I have been on Prevacid for 6 years as I do suffer from GERD and have a hiatus hernia and have often thought there was a connection between irregular heart beat and eating, as mine sometimes came on after a heavy meal but am worried that this is not the case with me as my reflux is being treated. Does anyone here being treated for reflux still have the irregular heart beats. I would add that I watch my diet and dont have anything with caffeine in.
Avatar f tn Write it down- document when you feel the pain, what you have been doing lately, and what foods you have eaten. You might find a correlation between you symptoms and what you are doing. (Usually you don't feel the symptoms until awhile after you have been stressed, at least that's how it is for me, it's like your body builds it up until it can't take it any longer.) 5. If your symptoms don't go away or get worse, go to a doctor.
Avatar f tn Before the transfusion I had only stomach pains. I was taking Protonix and I took antibiotics for h.pylori during that time they told me my iron /blood was low /anemic, but they said they didn't want to treat that at that time because the iron pills would be even more crucial on my stomach.mind you that all that happened three months prior to the transfusion. But what I'm saying is that I never had this anxiety then and I still had my stomach issues.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar f tn Months later still not feeling better I reverted back to original treating endo. He is the one that added the T3. The difference in opinion freaks me out and I hate to take medications and often wonder if I ever truly had a thyroid condition to begin with since we did a trial run on levothyroxine. I don't know if the trial run was giving the ultimate answer that yes there is a problem since the numbers elevated after the adminirstration of the low dosage. Again, I have been to so many drs.
612551 tn?1450025775 I am now on Norpace XR and I may face the same issue with my medigap policy as far as the difference in cost between XR and regular. I think the regular tablet can be taken 3 times a day, and the XR 2 times per day. I, also, will discuss this with my cardio when I see him in a couple of weeks. Do you actually get to SEE your doctor when you have a problem?
Avatar n tn I am 29 years old male by the way and I live with my mom and my sister and we have no health insurance. My mom started making blended vegetables for me to drink as a soup almost, mashed potatoes etc, squash etc. If I tried to eat anything more solid I would feel like the food gets stuck after I swallowed it and I would get really scared and panic. I would have to drink alot of water afterwards. A week later we went to the emergency room.
Avatar n tn Took a reglan, omeprazole and two phazyme. Then laid very still with my head on two pillows. Got to sleep ok and this morning I have mild burping with pressure in my chest. Something that helps with the severe pain is oxycodone which I take for neck and back pain. These episodes come more frequently as cool weather sets in. In the spring and summer months I never have one. I am very physical in those months and am less active in fall and winter months.
Avatar m tn I do not see any connection between my irritated throat symptoms and food. It is not so obvious like having or no-having heartburn. Only thing which I reliably found out is that overeating and very fatty foods make my symptoms worse (mainly belching and stronger feeling of a lump). Do you have any piece of advice how to find any triggers? I am kinda desperate about that. 4/ I want to try to consume one tbs of vinegar before meals. Does it have to be apple vinegar?
Avatar f tn I've tried Nexium and had some slight improvement but not enough to stay on it. I switched to omeprazole and that didn't help it all, even though it was prescription strength. I had an endoscopy and they found a hiatal hernia plus gastritis, but the doctor basically said to eat better and take over the counter medicine. Anyway, now I'm on Prevacid. The mucus and slime is just slightly better, and I've been taking this for over a month.
Avatar n tn This does affect your quality of life daily! I am now on Omeprazole ( don't think it helps, especially my dry mouth and throat), low dose Xanax, I have taken fir years and Simethicone. Actually, at one of my trips to the ER, the doctor suggested that. Another trip to the ER, that doctor prescribed a liquid antacid with Simethicone. My GI doctor told me not to use it saying it would do no good. Well, it is one of the few things that helps!
Avatar f tn After my son was born in 2006, I had an upper endoscopy done and they found a small hiatal hernia and they diagnosed me with GERD and I was put on Protonix. Initially it seemed to work but as with most things, the medicine became less effective after about a year. 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.
Avatar m tn I was reading another comment that a teaspoon of sea salt a day made a big difference with crepitus although calcium and magnesium helped as well. You lose sugar and salts as well as water when you are dehydrated. A sports drink hydrates quicker than water as the salt in the sports drink is the first thing to cross through the gut into the rest of your body and water follows the salt! It takes longer for the water to get through on its own.
192055 tn?1263559137 I've done a regimen of salt water gargles, netipot nasal rinses(excellent) ibuprofen for swelling' scrip for omeprazole for acid reflux and occasionally decongestant! Sometimes helps! But one reflux flareup and it's one step forward 10 steps back!
Avatar f tn i took 2 omega 7's and the acid eaze and the kyodofilus for later and within 45 mins i felt a major difference and by the end of the night i had only used the bathroom once or twice and by the next day i was 100%.
Avatar n tn I had a cardioversion done a month later and right away I could tell the difference between in and out of sinus and the calmness when in as well as how much easier it was to breath. I was in for around a week and one night I could feel it coming, and I was out. I was switched to Taxtia XT 300mg per day and had another cardioversion done, and that lasted maybe 2 weeks, and then back out again.
Avatar n tn i have the same issue, many times its sucha debilitating pain that i jsut don't tknow wahts wrogn wtih me. recetly i was put on lexapro and protonix which is for reflux....i still worry. but "just anxiety" is getting annoying.
Avatar m tn I was given Trimehobenzamide for nausea which didn't help to much and yesterday was given Protonix for acid which has helped. Today has been a good day. I think one has to hope for the best. I know it was very hard for me to function before my gallbladder was removed. I was in so much discomfort that I was clenching my teeth and my jaw became sore. I'm doing better and I think when one has the problems over time all of your digestive tract suffers somewhat.
Avatar f tn Hi I was diagnosed with moderately severe erosive esophagitis and chronic mild gastritis a month ago via endoscopy and biopsy. I have been on 40 mg omeprazole QAM for 4 and a half weeks and 300 mg ranitidine Qhs. I have no relief of my symptoms. Esophagus feels as something is stuck in it much of the time with sharp pains and burning in chest, arms and back much of the day as well. It doesn't matter if my stomach is empty or I have eaten.
Avatar n tn My doctor has not been much help, she insists it's heartburn and put me on protonix and a strick diet..i soon noticed that food was not the culprit and made a chart when the pain comes and goes. Soon enough I realized its a week before me period and during it. The pain completely goes away the morning I wake up after my period is over. I am so scared and do not want to be living with this for the rest of my life.
Avatar n tn Eat a moderate sized meal with a protein and a fat, and keep you carb intake between 15 and 30 grams during the meal. NO SUGAR. Drink Water, not soda or coffee. If you don't get phlegm after that balanced meal with reduced carbs to lower insulin response.. Congrats, you have your cure. You are also probably insulin resistant, have excess belly fat, and fall asleep after high carb meals and suffer from acid reflux. It all goes together.
