Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for ranitidine to work


520191 tn?1355639002 It was a couple of years ago and haven touched ranitidine since. Just went in to speak to my doctor about it again to see if they could look into it more to make sure. He said it was almost impossible and that I had to have had something else in my system to have a reaction like that since it is used to treat allergies. He said I was fine and not to worry about it and sent me on my way. Is it worth looking into with another doctor or will I keep getting the same response??
488724 tn?1253554835 i know being obese made me get these problems. So anyways.. Thyroid medicine.. how long does it take for your body to need the medicine adjusted again???
Avatar m tn I wouldn't take PPI's with an expectation to cure a problem, but to control it. I'd look for lifestyle, diet or surgical changes to cure it.
Avatar n tn Can a functional problem with anything else cause it? No. 2. How long does it take to recover? He suggested that the Dr who performed the endoscopy probably elaborated at "Gastritis" in my case and he only suspects "Non-ulcer functional dyspepsia" (NUD). He talked months, not years. Gastritis can be misdiagnosed as tv monitor set up can make the stomach look inflammed. Very subjective diagnosis in mild cases. 3.
Avatar n tn I took my first does 10 mins ago and although it say's to start taking them first thing in the morning, I just had to try it now, how long do they take to work? Does anyone else suffer the likes of dull pain sometimes in arms and legs? I take it these are associated with the so called 'acid reflux'? Many thanks in advance for your help.
Avatar m tn I know it’s difficult not to strain when you think you’re going to evacuate, but trying to hold it will help exercise and strengthen the muscles, and work the process naturally. When you’re sitting there and you hold it, and breathe, you can feel the muscles higher up in the colon participating in the process. The more they start to work on their own, the stronger they get, just like any other muscles in the body.
Avatar n tn How serious is this condition? Will it go away long-term. Does this increase risk for gastric cancer later - obviously something I need to monitor?! Thank you very much for your comments - havne't found much info on erosive gastritis - all the talk now seems to be on H-pyelori and GERD.
Avatar f tn Make sure you buy them from the refrigerated section of the best health food store you can find so you have some confidence they are still alive. As to the Paxil, get another prescription. This might take a long time for you to do it right -- it all depends on how bad the withdrawal is, and if you let it go and it's bad, it can stick around for a while long after you've stopped taking it. The best way with these meds is the preventive way, which is to do it right the first time around.
Avatar m tn Also, I apologize, I didn't check the dates -- the vitamin and mineral thing still stands, but not the thyroid tests. It can sometimes take a long time to get vitamins and minerals back up, and it won't hurt to check them if you're able. Glad to know you're doing better.
20852207 tn?1537766775 Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carry oxygen all over the body. Hematocrit is the number of red blood cells in your blood. Because iron is necessary for the formation of red blood cells, doctors often use them as a signal that iron levels are adequate, when this isn't always the case. Monocytes are a type of white blood cells. There several types of white cells and these are, basically, used to fight infection/disease.
1140722 tn?1266356279 EsophyX, a new incisionless procedure to prevent pain from acid reflux, is puts all these fears to rest. When performed by Dr. Elliot Goodman, an expert in gastric disorders and bariatric surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, NYC, GERD from a failed gastroesophageal (GE) valve can be reduced or stopped altogether. EsophyX is an incisionless procedure that recreates a functional GE valve.
560501 tn?1383616340 Any time I get off from work is a's really tough for me to make it thru the work-week lately. It will be my first week working on Midodrine so I'm going to be keeping good records about how I do on it. Seeing the Cardiologist next Monday so I need to tell him how it's going. So I'm actually just going to be plugging along at work...which is more than enough of a challenge.
Avatar n tn Okay. In a nutshell. I'm 36 Female. Good health for the most part. Mild mitral Valve Prolapse. Diagnosed with GERD and Hiatal Hernia. Here's problem....Immediately after I drift off to sleep something "overtakes" my body, almost like a gaseous, like carbon monoxide, feeling or more like what happens to your chest when you "almost get in a car accident"? As soon as I clear my throat or sit up it goes away.
Avatar f tn They just keep telling it is no big deal and I need to get used to it. Thank you for everybody who leaves any comment or advise, really appreciate it !
Avatar f tn It is only a death sentence if the disease has progressed to far for current medical practice to deal with or if I person chooses to die rather than going through the challenges it takes to get to transplant and then care for your donor liver for the rest of your life. It is about commitment and being responsible for your own life. No one can do this alone. No one. You need the proper medical care to handle the medical issues that will continue to get worse over time.
Avatar n tn It doesn't matter what temperature the water is, or how long I am exposed to it for, for the hives to occur. The thing I find strange is that it only affects my torso, and never my legs, face, or lower arms. I was only 2 or 3 years ago when i researched "water allergy" on the internet that I came to know what the condition was called. Everything I read about Aquagenic Urticaria that described the symptons, exactly matched what I have experienced for the last 23 years...
Avatar m tn I am scheduled for a TIF procedure in 1 month. How long was it before you felt "normal". I have a fear of choking and am afraid this will feel like a constant lump in the throat. Any tips you can offer would be appriciated.
Avatar m tn I was on the protonix since May, so I guess if it was the medication, it might take a while to get completely out of my system. With you being on it for so long, maybe there is hope that you will still get even better. Jaybay, thanks for the information. What you suggest is a good idea. I am intimidated by doctors. I would love to have one that I felt like I could have a discussion with.
334926 tn?1436815123 The Ped I saw today automatically gave me a prescript for some antacid to help with that reflux pain and advised me better on how much rice cereal to use. He listened to my list of concerns I had brought with me. Idk maybe Im just feeling this way towards their Ped cause Im a mom, a worried mom. Its been a rough few nights of sleeplessness and crying and thats not even them but me!
Avatar m tn I don't know anything about it and didn't need to follow up. You can have anxiety for many reasons, so trying to determine why it occurs or does not occur with the nausea might not be possible. Some people get it for no determined reason. However most likely the 2 do some feeding off each other for obvious reasons, and the nausea is not something you want to leave untreated any longer than you have to because it can lead to problems that require surgery. Definitely talk it over with doc.
Avatar m tn As far as I know, grapefruit seed extract doesn't interact with medications like grapefruit juice dose (but check for interactions). It can be obtained from a health food store or online. You can take florastor several times a day and VSL#3 (your pharmacist should be able to order both of them). VSL#3 is a potent probiotic with 450 billion organisms per packet. You can also purchase VSL#3 online.
1574314 tn?1296204882 There are many other uses. I refused pred for a non-asthma use in 2009. It took longer to get over the problem, but it was a wise choice. Tammy, a friend just told me that she was on cromlyn (sp?) neb the last time she was in the hospital and it worked very well for her. Have you tried that. It is not a good rescue med and is no longer available as an MDI, but it might help you. Also, have you been evaluated for VCD? Take care.
Avatar n tn Apparently fluid can seep from the back of the nose and go down the throat the brain reacts to stop the fluid going into the lungs which closes the voice box, this then stops you breathing, the brain then realises that the lungs arent working so wakes you up and that is why you wake up coughing and trying to get your breath, this is how it was explained to me. I have been told that it is not dangerous and that I will always wake up, it is just very stressfull.
Avatar f tn has anybody ever taken carfate? If so, how long does it take to work? And, did it work for you? My symptoms are a burning / gnawing sensation in my upper stomach and sometimes in the esophagus. I also have a cratchy voice and what feels like tons of mucus in my throat. Also, I understand the bile reflux is different to treat than than acid reflux. Is there anything that can be done to totally cure bile reflux? Does it come and go or will I have this forever?
Avatar n tn My current diagnosis is non-specific—just plain ol' dysautonomia with orthostatic hypotension and syncope, but I have a lot in common with POTSies. (I have narcolepsy w/ cataplexy as well, so I can't always comment on issues of sleepiness because of that confounding variable.) Keeping to a second-shift schedule works best for me, so I wake up around 10:30 (11 at the latest) and go to bed between 10 PM and 2 AM depending on how my nap schedule was that day and how sleepy/fatigued I am.
6708370 tn?1471493810 Before you continue to want to kill the messenger you really need to take the time to read what Waldenstrom does to your body. Your mother died from a massive stroke as a complication from her failing health. She had Hepatitis C which also brings on addition health issues. Your mother died of Cancer which could have been the results of having Hepatitis C. Your mother's doctor was aware of the extraheptic illnesses brought on by Hepatitis C. You might want to look that up too.
Avatar f tn It's worth asking your local pharmacies about cerenia and whether they can compound it and/or supply it for your dog. If not, then as long as there's not a long wait, you may just have to hold on till your vet gets it. Mirtazipine should be given in a low dose every day - not just every now and then. SubQ fluids are the same - every day - and to the right dose for the weight of your dog.
Avatar n tn It sounds like what most people here are describing - I'm curious to know how long it took for the pain to resolve itself, or if I should contact my doctor's office? The nurse and all the staff there are wonderful and I'm not interested in 'malpractice' suits and what not... but I do want this to be over with!
620923 tn?1452919248 You can write anything you like in your journal and chose to make it public for any other MedHelp member to see, allow only your friends to view it or keep it private for only you. You may also want to fill out a little bit of information about yourself on your personal profile so we can all get to know more about you as you post and comment in the community.
607502 tn?1288251140 I have a pretty complete memory hole for 7 days where I remember nothing - According to witnesses I was full tilt manic, paranoid and delusional.
