Nexium and tums together

Common Questions and Answers about Nexium and tums together


Avatar n tn If you have had a vagotomy, taking Nexium is not advised, A vagotomy reduces acid production and the Nexium also reduces acid production. My advice, having gone through the same surgery ,is to stop taking the Nexium,which by the way is not recommended for use more than 14 days. Take a fiber supplement mixed with water and a teaspoon of cider vinegar before every meal . If you should have occasional acid stomach symptoms, take regular Tums.
Avatar n tn Yes diarhea is a side effect of both Prevacid and Nexium and probably any other medication like that.
Avatar n tn Same with OTC H-2 Pumps like Pepsic AC and Zantac 100. On the other hand, antacids like Tums, Maalox, Mylanta, Gaviscon, etc; can interfere with ribavirin absoroption if taken within 2-3 hours of the ribavrin. I took the the PPI Nexium (2X day) for most of treatment (54 weeks) both for GERD and Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) which afffects linings higher up in the throat, vocal chords, ear canals and even the sinuses.
Avatar f tn I had heartburn very bad and am able to take a preventive medicine morning and night and feel great again! Constant heartburn is the worst.
Avatar f tn but sometimes straining to go to bathroom, belching and burping, white spots in stool and yesterday a little blood in the stool. At the time I met with the gastro doctor, was asked if I had blood in stool and I hadn't then. I spoke with someone in his office yesterday and told her about the blood and she said, oh that's not natural.......scared me to death as I had a friend who died of colon cancer six years ago...
Avatar n tn I took it with food, before food, after food, with bread, with Tums AND food and on and on. LOL I am now going to try the hcg injection for weight loss as well as the fact that I've read it helps with the PCOS symptoms, excessive facial hair etc. I know one friend that had great luck with losing weight on Metformin. She agreed that the first couple weeks she lost weight because she lived in the bathroom but after that she continued to lose.
Avatar f tn I have pain in the place where my Esophagus and Stomach meet and I get heart burn, bloating and constapation. My Doctor has me on Nexium 40 mil. twice a day and I still suppliment with tums. Will a colon cleanse solve my problem? I am desparate to feel normal again.
Avatar n tn Nexium to me, what I may propose doing, is to go to an apothacary shoppe and buy a small strainer (very tiny)and some clear unfilled capsules and empty half a 40mg. Nexium thru the strainer, into a clear capsule, thus giving me a 20 mg. Nexium. A friend told me about doing this with her Prevacid. This could be my maintainance dose if i feel I need it after trying the DGL.
Avatar m tn Losec is a PPI (protein pump inhibitor) and is OK to take with ribvirin. What you want to avoid are antacids like tums, maalox, rolaids, Gaviscon, etc. If you take any of these, best to space them 2-3 hours away from the time you take the ribavirin, if you want maxium absorption. H2 Inhibitors like Zantac 100 are also OK to take with ribavirin and can be taken at same time.
Avatar n tn The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red wine burps and flatulence (and diarrhea) are mortifying. I have studied the entire human body (in my profession), and have close friendships with several internists. However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease.

170935 tn?1225374676 I've asked my cardiologist and my Gastro doc about them being tied together and they both deny it! I think its related to the vegal nerve. When my stomach, esophagus spasms, I get the palpitations. It is really unnerving and very frightening for me, as I have never felt anything like it before. I've been to the ER twice because I thought I was having a heart attack. I had the EKG's, Stress Test, and even an arteriogram. All showing a perfectly healthy heart.
Avatar n tn Of course I had the Nissen Funduplication surgery for hiatal hernia/acid reflux 6 years ago and it has come undone. So now I take 2 Nexium every day, but it keeps things under control. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn ) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...sometimes hycosamine will work...sometimes 4 tums...and once and a while nothing but time cures it.....I have been told IBS....and intestinal intussusuption (found on two CT scans)diverticulitis...then I started to read up on Sphinter of Oddi syndrome...and it was like I was reading stories NOT from others suffering from it...but like I had written them myself....
Avatar m tn Yes I do, I'm on Protonix once a day. My experience has been that you have to take it for a couple of months before you feel any results. This last time I've been taking it for around a couple of weeks. It's a common symptom of HepC but not everyone has problems with it. You just got to watch what you eat and don't eat right before you go to sleep.
Avatar f tn I struggled with those for almost two years. When I tapered off the Nexium meds and used a simple, over-the-counter antacid (containing calcium and magnesium) as needed, the PVCs lessened. When I ate carefully and finally stopped Nexium completely (using the OTC antacid only when needed and in small amounts) the PVCs went away completely. I've been free of them for almost two years now.
Avatar n tn Wondering how long for healing and complete relief ? After my initial 6 week no relief with Nexium and on a few good days this attempt the natural and more cause and effect way. She suggested Enzymatic Therapy Heartburn relief bitter orange ? Would this help the abdominal pain, bile taste, burps etc. Gastritis, NUD, ,GERD If Concerned lady reads this Please let us know if this is the DGL you refer to so highly.
930878 tn?1248305346 I've taken Tums, Pepto Bismol, my stomach meds...and everything I can get my hands on..but they don't seem to do the trick. I've been tested for gallbladder problems and liver issues...all negative. I feel like I'm looking through a globe....if anyone could help, I would appreciate it so much!
Avatar n tn The Doc has me on prevacid, I told him they did not work and he told me take two a day together, my friend told me about Nexium which I have not tried, he said he has tried them all and Nexium is the only one that worked for him? Let me know if you find out anything and I will do the same for you, it's new to me but I am proactive and am looking for an answer, this thing, this pain is ruining my life! Kev.
Avatar n tn Suttle nausea will last for two to three days after. My Dr. has given me Nexium and aciphex and none of these help at all. I don't have any symptoms with spicy food or fried food like you think I should because they keep telling me I have acid reflex. My attacks come on an empty stomach and even if I have eaten a bagel to try and put something in my stomach. I don't think this is acid reflex at all and I feel that my Dr. just isn't listening to me.
Avatar m tn FRUCTOSE, HFCS, SORBITOL and other POLYOLS (maltitol, mannitol, xylitol) and, only in some individuals FRUCTANS. Most problematic foods are: - FRUITS: apples, pears, prunes, peaches, sweet cherry, dates, raisins, mango, papaya. - FRUIT JUICES, JAMS, COMPOTES. - HONEY - SUGARS and SWEETENERS: fructose, High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), sorbitol, xylitol, mannitol, maltitol, raw sugar, brown sugar, molasses, Splenda.
221122 tn?1323014865 It's nice to know I could use it while still on Nexium. Maybe I could try Nexium every other day and mastic gum on the off days for a few months? Then cut back more on the Nexium if that works? Not eager to deal with acid rebound, since that really gets my PVCs going. But I really don't think it's good to be on Nexium for many years, with what we are now finding out. Thanks. Oh...almost forgot...where do you get your mastic gum? Is it in a tablet or capsule? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I took Jim's advise and got some Nexium (actually my ins. pays for Aciphex) and it worked! I no longer have this sx. I have migraines and get nausea where I can't keep anything down and am heaving constantly. Compazine worked, the suppositories. Hope this helps with the nausea question, now other Riba sides are a whole different story. Just watch out for that anemia in the 3rd week or so. Hgb should be no more than 3 pts. from what you started with before tx. It is the worst!
520191 tn?1355639002 i had a rash around my neck and my oxygen saturation was low. i arrived at the hospital and was put into re suss and given adrenaline by injection and i was given prednisone. i was given oxygen and i recovered well, spent the next few days in hospital recovering. This would never have happened if my doctor had not prescribed me to medication at once. I feel lucky to be alive as later the ambulance officer and he said he thought i was a goner.
1438638 tn?1304950057 If you ask around, you will likely find that many, many of us are on some combination of medicine for stomach acid (such as Nexium, Prilosec, Tums, Pepsid...) and/or medicine for nausea/vomiting (such as Phenergan, Zofran, Reglan ...) and/or medicine for bowel issues (such as Miralax, Dulcolax, Metamucil, Colace ...).
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar n tn I couldn't sit, stand, lay down or move with out really awful pain in my stomach and side. I had cold sweats and felt nauseous. I took tums and what was left of the pepto and they did nothing for me. I figured the warm water and lemon was not harmful so at least worth a try. I finished my warm mug and on the way to the kitchen was able to release a big ol' truck driver worthy burp. Within 10 minutes the pain was gone and I was able to sleep!
Avatar f tn I still have a bad hunch after antibiotics (probably abused antibiotics) and nexium/tums/rolaids ect I have a bad cause of SIBO and my dorky doctors never even thought about testing it meanwhile making me test for extremely expensive tests (MRI's CT scans..Kidney xrays blah blah). I have the CPT code and i've called around here in salt lake city but can't find a testing place. Everyone thinks i'm crazy asking for a hydrogen breath test..
Avatar dr m tn When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
