Heartburn and prozac

Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and prozac


Avatar f tn 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?
683892 tn?1231216599 Hey everyone, I'm a recovering addict and my doctor prescribed me prozac. I was just wondering if anyone has used this drug and how their experience was with it. I know it's not an abusable drug, but I'm sure some of you have come across it at some point in your life, seeing as how most addicts are self-medicating for an underlying condition. Thanks. Hope everyone's well.
230262 tn?1316649534 In the last year or so though, for some reason, the Prozac now gives me SEVERE heartburn right after I take it. And I dont mean mild heartburn, Im talking a Severe Acid Storm- where it makes me nauseaous, i get gas pressure so bad i feel liike Im having a heart attack and it makes me sick the whole day sometimes after these attacks.
Avatar n tn i started Welbutrin right around the time i went c/t, and it was fine for me. but i don't know anything about Prozac.. i would definitely call a pharmacy and find out.
Avatar m tn I was given Clonazepam for help through the first month or so, and it helped me sleep and avoid major panic attacks... The paxil and prozac are drugs that will hopefully work all/most of the time, instead of having to take short acting ones like ativan or clonazepam... So...this is pretty normal I think, and you'll probably feel much better soon. I did feel CRAZY for the first month, and even when I switched to prozac to try that (because of Paxil weight gain) I felt CRAZY...
Avatar n tn I'm hoping it is safe to tak ehte aciphex and stay on the prozac. I've tried Pepcid and it does absolutely nothing for me. Thank you in advance for answer this.
Avatar n tn if you work your cardio more you will have a reason for your heart to be pounding fast, and you wont be scared. the heartburn...eat less acidy foods, eat right and you will feel better more of the time, i know that this may not eliminate all but it will make a difference.
Avatar f tn I have noticed that since taking the Prozac I have this constant heartburn / upset tummy where I just can't eat anything. I mean, nothing sounds good and smelling most foods seems to make it worse :S This is not good because it is not a healthy way to lose weight and I don't want to gain a bunch later. Anyone else have this / know how to alleviate this side effect? Thanks!
Avatar m tn I suffered from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day. I ended up getting several sleep tests and nothing showed up except a few hypopneas. They fitted me with an oral appliance but that did nothing. I then started getting treated for Depression. A few meds helped but they only lasted a few months. I've been on just about every antidepressant and nothing has helped me.
Avatar n tn I continued to have off-and-on bouts with heartburn and abdominal pain throughout this last year. I even had an upper GI and an endoscopy in January which was negative for ulcers and negative for h. pylori. However, just last week I went to the doctor for a different problem. I had a pinkish rash on my shoulder, neck, and tailbone (I had had the rash once before years ago). Dr. said it was a fungal skin infection and prescribed Diflucan.
Avatar n tn I have chronic heartburn, but not severe, rarely wakes me at night, but have been awakened from aspirating acid and not being able to breath (very scary) thankfully this is very rare (1 or 2 times in the last 3 years). I have had an upper GI series and am awaiting the results about possible hiatal hernia. However, my question is, What is the connection between acid reflux and PVC's. I've asked my doctor this question a couple of times with no details of why.
Avatar m tn I am WF, age 48, and have had 4 children, I take prozac, lisinopril, and HTC. My BP runs 150 - 180 over 70 - 100, I che k it when I have this new accompanied chest pain. I have heartburn symptoms, belching, runny nose and coughing when I eat or drink, and gassiness often, now I am having chest pain along with these. Advice, comments?
Avatar n tn I am on 500 mg and it has done nothing for weight loss. It actually constipated me for the first few days and gave me heartburn and chest pain. I don't know if that is normal or not. My doctor says I am insulin resistant and he thinks this will help me loss weight. Should I ask to increase it? Or is it to soon?
Avatar f tn The 4th doctor was from the neighboring city and she said that my heart and blood pressure is fine, but the symptoms sounded like panic or anxiety attacks. She prescribed me prozac, but I have always feared taking medicine, because my mother and father always gave me medicine for something. For example, I would annoyed my mother enough that she would give me tylenol, because it made me sleepy.
Avatar n tn i have been on prozac 20mg for six weeks and i have had persistent chest painand pain in my lower back. my doctor thinks it is heartburn. i was wondering if it could be anything to do with prozac as antacids are not working. how long is it before i start to feel any benefit from prozac. am i able to just stop taking them without weening myself of them.
1979414 tn?1337806949 My heart was pounding and I became lightheaded. dizzy, and hot. I grabbed some water and walked around my house to calm down and my heart started racing probably like 130 to 140 and I did some breathing exercises to calm down. After about 5 or so minutes my heart rate was normal, but I was shaking and cold and felt sick to my stomach. I wasn't able to go back to sleep because when I laid down, I got hot and lightheaded again.
503727 tn?1210442710 I've been on Prozac off and on. And have had all the tests run many times. Anxiety is SO hard to deal with. Dizziness and lightheaded are annoying!
Avatar n tn I'm a teen (19 going on 20)and my doctor isn't taking me serious about my complaints of crushing chest pain and racing heart that comes and goes, dizzyness and short of breath. He put a heart recorder on me for a week and it was suposed to record strange heart rhythms on me and it surely did. It kept making beep sounds throuhgout the day when I moved around.
20841888 tn?1531743768 Started Prozac 40mg. (still having side effects- nausea and headaches) Feel great. Wondering why I didn't start sooner. 6/29; Left for Biloxi. 7/6: See counselor. Crash by that night. Debilitating depression. In bed 7/9: Suicidal- prozac stopped and started 20 geodon that night. 7/10: Still suicidal thoughts and depressed, no side effects yet with geodon. 7/11: Start Geodon 60mg 7/12: Counselor; depression lifting, took kids for ice cream and park.
Avatar n tn We talked about the next step and after talking for quite awhile, she feels I'm a canddiate for Protonix and perhaps Paxil to calm the anxiety this has caused. I know you take Protonix Jenn and like it. The nurse did explain that what works for one may not work for another. She herself takes Protonix and likes it alot. She has bad reflux and the Protonix has improved her quality of life.
Avatar n tn Maybe it wouldn't hurt to see your doctor, be sure to ask for an iron and B12 blood test, as I was misdiagnosed as having depression and put on Prozac before I went to see another doctor who did the blood test.
Avatar n tn I really do appreciate it and take it to heart. I am going to ask for new meds...obviously the prozac is not doing its job although the ativan seems to help some. As for gastritis...wouldn't this be cured by nexium, I've been on it for 34 days now. This worries me a little although these days I'm sleeping better, almost too good. You said that if I can do "daily things" ok then I'm well. I don't know what you would classify as daily tasks, but lately its been harder.
20841888 tn?1531743768 Spent my $ on nails and was thinking about getting wax cubes and matte polish from the store. Mom came and took table and kids..Chris going to work. I'm excited to find a tracker. lol Yay. Still feel uncomfortable with Geodon in me, yet wondering if I'm in a slightly manic state.
Avatar m tn i can totally relate to most of you feeling like your not yourself like your in a dream floaty and always tired and like life is just aint worst living for anymore man does anxiety and panic attacks suck and its sad because many people suffer from this and we dont no or even worst think it is something horrible bad and we are never going to get cured for it but i can say myself i was on prozac nd it was driving me crazy to the edge my feet and palms would always be sweaty and i just thought i
1323357 tn?1274826939 an increase of adrenaline and decrease of dopamine - and this feeling of depersonalistion and derealisation is a result. You are not going insane and this will rebalance itself. What makes it persist is that usually a person does not know what it is and so worries/creates more stress this creates a self-perpetuating cycle.
Avatar n tn I'm 34 yr old male and have been experiencing various chest and left arm pains for about three months. I've seen a plethora of doctors from cardiologist to internist to GI doc to psychologist. Heart problems have been ruled out by numerous EKG's and stress echo test. GI doc found I have a hiatal hernia/GERD from upper GI and is currently being treated with Nexium. Have also had ultrasound of liver/gall bladder and MRI of abdomen - all normal.
Avatar n tn This pain would intensify which would cause me to wince in pain and then release and then repeat all over again every 5-10 seconds for about a minute. This pain did not radiate anywhere but only within a specific point. Then this same stabbing sensation occurred half way up to the first knuckle of my right middle finger about 30 minutes later. Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe.
Avatar n tn I have a hiatal hernia and suffer from heartburn which seems to be connected with the esophagus not emptying quickly. I was tested for h.pylori annd found positive, this as alleviated by the usual treatment. For your information I find that a 0.3 mg tablet of nitro-glycerine under the tongue relaxes the smooth muscle of the esophagus and eases the pain.
Avatar n tn There is a difference between simple heartburn and acid reflux disease (or GERD). I'd check out the Am. College of Gastroenterology website for a lot of info on the different disease states.
