Nexium and famotidine

Common Questions and Answers about Nexium and famotidine


Avatar f tn Ask your doc about nexium that's what my doc gave me and its the only thing that has helped I was just like you and now I feel great
Avatar m tn And it was only once then. It just happened so suddenly, I was breathing find and then I lie down and immediately begin experiencing problems. I also have terriible posture and spend 5+ hours a day using the computer, sitting not up straight in a chair, not sure if that has anything to do with it either.
170935 tn?1225374676 Also have been on Nexium and, before that, Losec for too, too many years and believe it has caused more problems than not. Anyone else with these symptoms have a h.hernia and Nexium history also????????? I am 47, female and a bit too much stomach fat.
Avatar f tn I've attempted Gas-X and mylanta to help with bloating and feelings of gas. I've also tried PPI's and H2 Blockers like Tagament, Famotidine, Prevacid, Nexium, and Dexilant. Unfortunately, all to no relief. I'm at the end of the rope with these medications. I've changed my diet, and lost weight. I don't smoke or drink. Yet my heartburn is seemingly chronic. For me, it's chest pains after a meal (no matter how small). On a good day I only have this constant feeling of needing to burp.
Avatar n tn I have had acid reflux in the past, but my current symptoms do not feel the same. What is the difference between Gaviscon, Famotidine (20mg) and Nexium (40mg)? I have been prescribed all three. I would prefer to find a more natural solution. I have pressure behind my right eye and tingling on the right side of my head that extends from the font of my head to the base of my skull.
Avatar m tn I was nervous about taking Nexium and was only going to try some famotidine chewable tablets but your note has convinced me to pass on the tablets and to give Nexium a try in case I am not only suffering from GERD but there is also some damage to my esophagus that needs repairing. What resources are there to learn what drugs affect the LES? In terms of food and lifestyle changes, I found some links that provide ideas: http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar n tn I started having symptoms that I never had before I was treated (such as burning in my stomach, and pain). I took some advice off of this site and started taking probiotics and I am starting to feel a lot better. I'm going in to get tested again in a few weeks. I will do the antibiotics again if the bacteria is still there, just because I can't stand the thought of that stuff living in my stomach.
709686 tn?1277435759 There are some combo otc drugs by Rolaids and others that have an antacid and famotidine (acid reducer). Those probably don't work as well.
Avatar n tn PLEASE do not take this or ANY supplement without first consulting your PCP (Primary Care Physician) and I would include my Pharmacist. I am not an expert and this information may not be complete and is never a substitute for talking and consulting with your physician.
Avatar m tn Is there anything that can signal the LES to open in this case to let food down? She's on Nexium and famotidine currently for about a month but the reflux and throat-mouth burn won't stop. Can't be acid, must be just enzymes. Agony. Anything to help?
Avatar f tn RX strength nexium at 40 mg/day and nefidipine ER at 30mg/day and over the counter ranitidine 150 mg and famotidine 20 mg once in the morning. i often take the otc in the late afternoon if needed. i have had non-alcohol hepatitis c for decades and am aware of the nexium warning regarding use with liver disease. every now and then i take a break from the nexium and double up on the otc meds. i then have some mild symptoms that are manageable but only when i take a break from the nexium.
Avatar f tn Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. Avoid heavy meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Go to bed at least 2 hours after food. “GERD symptoms are often relieved by over-the-counter, acid-reducing agents called antacids.
Avatar m tn So I went to my doc and he suggested that I have acid reflux gave Nexium but it didn't seem to help as the situation got worse and I couldn't eat for 5 days and started burps, hiccups, pressure around my neck, pressure on my chest and especially the esophagus, I feel something is stock in there (mucus like), but I'm not vomiting.
Avatar f tn I've tried antiacids like tums. I've also tried PPI's and H2 Blockers like Tagament, Famotidine, Prevacid, Nexium, and Dexilant. Unfortunately, all to no relief. I'm at the end of the rope with these medications. I've changed my diet, and lost weight. I don't smoke or drink. Yet my heartburn is seemingly chronic. For me, it's chest pains after a meal (no matter how small). On a good day I only have this constant feeling of needing to burp.
Avatar f tn anyway, since then, i will wake up in the mornings and i am starving. i am so hungry really all the time. it gets to the point of nausea and crankiness. i crave real food (ex roast and potatoes). i doesn't matter if i ate a huge dinner the night before like right before i go to bed. i have been tested for diabetes and they have come back ok. i have also been diagnosed with really low testosterone level(i am a 35 yr old woman). i have gained weight too.
Avatar m tn Most H2RAs are available OTC and include Zantac (Ranitidine), Pepcid (Famotidine), and Axid (Nizatidine) and are considered first line for the treatment of meal-induced heartburn. The other classes of medications, the PPIs, are considered stronger and are more for treating GERD and not just symptomatic relief of meal induced heartburn.
Avatar n tn The simple fact is you must have stomach acid and enzymes to digest food. Nexium and all the other meds are simply another way for the drug companies to make money. Acid reflux or heartburn as it used to be called can be helped with digestive enzymes and a good probiotic. Your colon must also be moving at least once a day if not more. I suffer from benign pvc's as well and experience the exact same stomach lurches. I was told this is an adrenaline rush(fight or flight response.
Avatar n tn I am a pretty healthy 30 year-old, I don't smoke, I eat well, and I hardly drink. For the past couple of months I have felt fine all day and when it's time for bed, I cough my head off. I had an upper respiratory infection, but I got antibiotics and the mucus is gone, but I can't get rid of this cough. Does anyone have any idea what this could be??
Avatar n tn and two other drugs for four days. At the time, I was also taking Atenolol: Altace: and Nexium. However, even a week and one-half later I am still having problems and sensitivity to heat. Just walking outside can start my facial edema; red ears: and purple lips. My regular doctor took me off the Altace, and put me back on the Prednisone; Famotidine: Ciprofloxacin because the Rocephin did not kick the UTI or prostitis; and raised my Atenolol to twice a day.
Avatar n tn if both of these don't work, then see your MD, who can prescribe stronger medications called 'proton pump inhibitors.' these include Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, and Nexium. Hope this helps, JOHN W. (R.
Avatar f tn For the last three years I've been on Prilosec, which causes extreme diarrhea and stomach pain, (pains not as severe as Nexium and Protonix). I tried Prevacid as soon as it became OTC and had no side effects for 4 weeks. Then suddenly I had severe colitis for 8 weeks. Now I just want to get off PPIs because they are interfering with my life so badly I feel trapped inside my own home. My fear is being out, and unable to get to the bathroom in time.
Avatar m tn But I don't think that it is, who has gas pains in the exact same spot every morning ? I went to my GI doctor and told him about it and he just told me to keep taking my Nexium 40mg. I told him that I take it everyday without fail. I showd him were the pain was and he just said, I think its your intestines. I had a endoscopy and he said, I had Barrett's esophagus and a Hiatal hernia and left it at that. I had to talk to a friend who said that I might have IBS.
1516249 tn?1423465385 The stomach that is slowed will cause acid release as soon as it senses that the food is NOT MOVING and if you had no meat and just carbohydrates and fats as meal, entire load of acids will need to neutralized which will consume ELECTROLYTES from your body making you feel weak and fatigued.
Avatar m tn But in the evening my neck started hurting more and I also started getting a minor headache. The ab pains were very slight and I concentrated more on my neck and head. Plus I also realized I had a loss of appetite. So basically as of today my neck still hurts, slight headaches and loss of appetite. I keep checking my temperature, and there is no sign of fever. I do have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning, but I am hoping to maybe get some insight before then.
Avatar n tn My GP tested my amylase/ lipase last week and found my amylase was 258 and my lipase was 214. She said both are elevated and wanted me to get in for an endoscopy, which I did today. The endoscopy was normal. I was sooooo drugged up afterward that I was unable to ask the Dr all of the questions I wanted to. All I could get out was a request for pain medication, not for the endoscopy recovery but for my nightly pain attacks. He told me to take tylenol, not advil or aleve.
Avatar m tn I finally got an endoscopy two months later this past Nov 20 and was diagnosed with gastritis and esophagitis and put on Nexium 40mg once a day. It seemed to work quite well for about 5 or6 weeks, then, bam!, I am back to being nauseous every day to varying gedrees. I am again taking anti nausea and anti anxiety pills because all this has made me so anxious about my future. I was a happy healthy and very active person before this.
Avatar m tn I spent two days in the hospital and was on Nexium those two days. I was sent home with a prescription for Omeprazole and was told that I had GERD. I began experience Malaise and Myalgia and an impaired digestive system, and was thinking that whatever this GERD was it was really bad. The muscle pain became really intense so my doctor prescribed HYDROCODONE. This medication caused me to experience Insomnia - literally "wide-awake" all night and no relief from myalgia.
1516249 tn?1423465385 Once Stomach has slowed down due to certain medicines, Acidosis occurs and accumulated acids in turn cause MORE SLOW STOMACH and thus the LOOP. The CURE mechanism involves cleaning up stored acids first along with providing motility (STOMACH) on regular basis till the problem is reversed.
Avatar m tn I have also noticed other symptoms working on me over the past 6months including - finding myself very tired to the point where i engage in day time sleep [this is not something i have ever done], very tight head aches up the left hand side of my head [near the back of my left ear - these can last for days], poor vision and burning feeling to my eyes, very painful neck, minor chest pain, lack of appetite [due to burning sensation in my throat] and tasteless sensation in my mouth.
