Lansoprazole and gaviscon

Common Questions and Answers about Lansoprazole and gaviscon


Avatar m tn I don't want to bore you with the long history but this is undiagnosed by a Dr and frankly with the healthcare in my country I don't expect it ever will be soon. That said, I have been diagnosed conclusively with GERD and so I am on lansoprazole 30mg. I don't know when most of the LPR damage is occuring but I am inclined to think it is during the night since without being on my PPI's I woke up in the morning with a burning feeling of saliva in the back of the throat.
Avatar m tn I went to speech therapy, drink gaviscon advance by the bucket, but my throat still felt tight and dry and like it was closing off when singing. Finally got a Panendoscopy. They couldn't see anything, but said I had a muscle spasm, and this fits with my description of it easing my throat when I swallow. I figured it was crichopharyngeal spasm. The doc says nothing can be done, but I've found everything from Xanax, to Flexeril and even Botox.
Avatar m tn Think it might be because i forgot to take lansoprazole that day. Have taken tablet today and symptoms have settled a little.
Avatar f tn Can you take lansoprazole prior to the morning meal and evening meal and then take Gaviscon Advance following the meal in the morning and evening - these have been prescribed by my doctor
Avatar f tn I have been using PPI medication Omeprazole until early this year where I got switched to Lansoprazole which I also got diagnosed with silent reflux (LPR) due to loosing my voice. I also take Gaviscon Advanced 3-4 times a day for the acid and heartburn. My lifestyle changed due to these diagnoses I eat more healthily and exercise more to try and keep the weight healthy. I am to have my three year check up due to the Barrett's of the Oesophagus.
1171710 tn?1263407785 I first went to the doctor about my nausea and heartburn ten years ago and was prescribed as you can imagine I'm completely at the end of my tether!
Avatar f tn Doctor gave me prenisolone and antibiotics to check it wasnt an infection but all that happened was my stomach felt like it had been kicked by a horse, I had a horrible taste in my mouth and major acidy feeling. The doc eventually suggested I went back on lansoprazole and after about 3 weeks I felt back to normal. When I was feeling better I was scheduled in for an endoscopy and the results were bile and acid reflux, esophogisits and gastritis.
Avatar m tn I was told by the GP to get another endoscopy. I was put on Lansoprazole and had to wait 6 weeks for the appointment. The tablets initially didn’t control the acid enough, the pain was agonising and I had to take Gaviscon regularly. When I finally got to my appointment at the hospital to see the specialist again I only had a stomach exam. I explained my symptoms, he checked my stomach and was basically told ‘You have excessive acid causing your problems.
Avatar f tn When things flair up I will still pop some Maalox or Gaviscon but very rarely and certainly not daily like before!! Also, when symptoms are so bad I find that a Xanax really helps, I thing stress and worry make all the symptoms so much worse. Good luck to you! I hope that you are able to get some relief soon.
Avatar f tn Is anyone else struggling with acid reflux? I am on medication, gaviscon and rennie given to me by my obstetrician but still not much improvement. How is everyone else coping?
Avatar n tn The doctors said I probably have an ulcer, so upped my dose of lansoprazole (to 60mg daily) and told me to take Gaviscon too (yuk!) I know I haven't got the h.pylori bacteria as I was tested for that when I had the endoscopy to determine GERD. None of this has helped after being diagnosed with MS in July. It doesn't help that most of my MS pain is on the left too - I can't help worrying that this is all related somehow (like some dreadful circulatory problem).
Avatar n tn I'm continuing to take lansoprazole along with antacids the doctor recommended(Gaviscon and Maalox), but I still have trouble. After every meal I have terrible burning pain in my stomach just below my ribs and I feel nauseous but never vomit. Sometimes I have heartburn all day and my esophagus and throat feel really raw and painful from all the acid. I am reduced to eating bananas and bread becasue any food with even a little acid or oil causes terrible discomfort.
1191484 tn?1289127734 Feel well and fit. Slight heartburn. Take Gaviscon. Day 3 (Sat): Ok, a little tired. Heartburn - gaviscon. Day 4 (Sun) Tired. Heartburn. Day 5 (Mon) Fatigue and nausea. Began taking anti-sickness meds (Donperidone) The nausea increases as the day progresses. It is debilitating and I spend a large part of the day in bed. I am uncomfortable and don't know what to do with myself. Didn't go to work. No appetite & only ate small amounts. Really uncomfortable, can't settle to anything.
Avatar n tn I have stopped my modest wine (20-25 units/week) and stopped eating fatty foods and milk products - all to no avail. For years, I have needed Gaviscon before going to bed after a mid-evening meal, and have had periodic scary reflux incidents during the night. I weigh about 86 Kg and suffer from sleep apnoea. I have been diagnosed with mild angina and take atenolol, eprosartan for blood pressure, and a statin at night, plus 75mg aspirin daily.
Avatar f tn All doctors I've visited gave me antiacid medication as well as gastro resistant capsules (omeprazole, lansoprazole, gaviscon, buscopan) and I never felt better, sometimes even worse. Last days the pain got really worse and I ended up in the hospital but they gave me only codeine and paracetamol and via my GP organized scan and endoscopy.
Avatar m tn I saw ENT last year, had a scope, they saw some redness of the vocal chords and gave me Lansoprazole which helped for two weeks but nothing beyond this. However I notice the acid when I come off lansoprazole. I also take Gaviscon Advance to keep acid and food down. I've had a barium swallow, every is normal. I have another appointment with ENT for a Laryngoscopy. Im mindful of two things, it has been mentioned under several circumstances that my tonsils are (under normal circumstances) huge.
Avatar m tn I am repeatedly told it is due to acid reflux and anxiety and I am taking the medication, although with great difficulty and following diet guidelines set but it doesn't improve. During this period I have lost 13kg of weight and am struggling to find hope I'll ever return to normal. I also constantly feel lightheaded, unable to concentrate or think, and lethargic. sometimes feel great pressure in my head and face. I simply would like to ask, does anyone have any advice?
Avatar m tn I am taking Lansoprazole(PPI) acid blockers, 30mg in the morning and 30 mg on a night, the problem must be acid related, because 12 hours without acid blockers and the pain start without fail.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar m tn 1)pain in the central part of my stomach with presence of a sort of little ball which is visible even to naked eye 2)feeling of foreign body in the throat 3)feeling of burning to my oesophagus 4)rarely small spills from the mouth of gastric My GP doctor gave me a therapy of Lansoprazole caps (ec grans), 15mg.
393165 tn?1420764045 Hi there, about 4 years ago, I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy and was diagnosed with having some acid reflux and Hiatal Hernia, was put on PPI for 8 weeks, called protium and basically over course of last 4 years have been on and off them.. now last week doctor visit for small bit of acid reflux he prescribed me 40mg of PPI protium once a day for 3 weeks then was told to stop.. have been on them for a week and start to have central chest pain and constipation, not even sure if related..
6499035 tn?1381863724 In fact after not having them for a week I got a really bad case of heartburn, like a burning feeling in my stomach and when I swallowed it would feel hot and horrible. That went away with Gaviscon tablets though. Maybe was there a connection to the Lansoprazole? I have been eating more like the amount I used to... but something isn't right. My stomach just doesn't feel like it used to.
1222527 tn?1266942156 i take 45/60mg Lansoprazole daily, suck rennie and drink Gaviscon. It has helped with the terrible pain i was feeling after eating but i still have acid attack, gurgling stomach,bloating, lump in throat/chest. The feeling like there is a lump in my throat that i cannot swallow is a pain! I have had an endoscopy which confirmed a LES.
Avatar m tn Nothing that really burns, it just feels like I'm bringing some liquid up when I belch. - Weakness and fatigue, especially in the head and legs. - Palpitations and a feeling of not getting enough air. Tends to happen more at night or when sitting down. Gaviscon Advance temporarily relieves these symptoms but not entirely. Omeprazole and lifestyle changes do nothing. Lansoprazole sometimes made me worse.
244386 tn?1274576649 We saw her GP who put it down to friendship anxiety at school and talked to her for an hour! They then prescribed gaviscon as she was constantly complaining of sick in her throat (she is unable to vomit due to the op as a baby). In desperation I emailed her paediatrician at the hospital she saw as a baby and she prescribed Lansoprazole until we could get a barium swallow organised. We haven't looked back!
Avatar n tn You will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals or H-2 blocker such as ranitidine for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into by a carbon urea breath test and a combination antibiotic tried.
Avatar n tn I am now taking 30mg lansoprazole twice a day and I am taking it properly before meals to get the best results. The problem is that if I take a tablet at 7am before breakfast, by 2pm I am already starting to get burning in my chest and abdominal pain. When I take my second tablet at 6pm the pain has gone within an hour and seems to last until morning. I should only have to take 1 dose of 30mg a day to eliminate all the symtoms so how come it only seems to last a matter of hours???

Avatar m tn I control the reflux with small, regular meals, Omeprazole and Gaviscon. The stomach distension arises between meals and can be actually relieved by light snacks. NB: The bloating causes or at least enhances my breathing distress, which is unpleasant. The respiratory problems are bad when I'm bloated and dissappear when my stomach deflates. I have seen my GP, a Gastroenterologist and will be seeing a Pulmonologist soon. My chest X-Ray is clear and my peak flow good.
Avatar f tn My current medications are tramacet, lansoprazole, gaviscon and frovatripan. I'm scared that I don't know what's coming next and I have no diagnosis to prepare myself if it gets much worse. Sorry to go on so much! Any possible medical explanations or similar experiences would be much appreciated. Thank you.
