nexium

1274110 tn?1270788561 I am on plavix also and was taking nexium for gerd. My cardiologist told me to go off the nexium because the FDA has found that the nexium or any of the PPI's inhibits the plavix from working properly. I am now on pepcid instead of nexium. I am curious to find out if your cardio's had mentioned this to you. Protonix is in the same group of PPI's as nexium. Google plavix and ppi's or go on the FDA website. You will read a lot about the two meds. Just for your info.
Avatar f tn Hi Robbie76, PPI including Nexium are safe medications even on a long term. FDA has not issued any warning against long term intake of PPI. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.

Avatar m tn This led the FDA to ask Plavix maker Sanofi-Aventis to specifically study interactions between Plavix and Prilosec and between Plavix and Nexium, FDA safety evaluator Mary Ross Southworth, PharmD, said at a news conference. "We think there is a significant interaction," Southworth said. "In general, patients should avoid the combination of these two medications." But the FDA recommendation goes far beyond the two drugs studied.

Warning in particular for nexium is magnesium deficiency on the FDA website - seen within 3 months but on average about a year after starting. Magnesium deficiency causes so many symptoms including acid reflux ironically. Magnesium is essential for proper heart rhythm. Calcium contracts the muscles, magnesium relaxes the muscle. The most important muscle in the body is the heart.
Avatar f tn The latest FDA warning for PPI's (nexium is a PPI) is hypomagnesemia - magnesium deficiency. "FDA notified healthcare professionals and the public that prescription proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs may cause low serum magnesium levels (hypomagnesemia) if taken for prolonged periods of time (in most cases, longer than one year).
Avatar m tn nexium, prilosec [which is omeprazole]), the FDA made a statement to take up to 14 days, 3 times a year. There is a good reason for this. You NEED stomach acid to absorb essential nutrients and kill of bacteria, fungi, parasites. Muscle pain could be due to magnesium deficiency for instance. This is the newest warning out by the FDA. A magnesium deficiency can occur within 3 months of taking a PPI.

1270628 tn?1335545993 How do pharmacists learn of FDA warnings such as the one issued on Nov. 17, 2009 regarding the incompability of PLAVIX with PPI's, specifically PRILOSEC? Should the person responsible for over-seeing the central pharmacy or dispensary for a prison system be aware of such warnings? If so, would they have an abligation, either legal or ethical, to take action to protect the patient, namely prison inmates, from such dangerous incompatibilities?
Avatar m tn Just wondering did the hcv drugs worked on hbv patients somehow so ppl started to use them to cause FDA to issue a warning?

1827931 tn?1317905317 The FDA gave a warning to only take nexium and other PPI's for up to 14 days, 3 times a years. Good warning too if a bit late!

Avatar m tn it includes some of the following Cipro,Ciproxin,Ciprobay,Ciproproxine,Ciflox and Livaquin, Two other medications in this group have been taken off the market by the FDA some time ago for the nasty reactions they had. There are a lot of other antibiotics that don't have these nasty side affects and are safe to use, although when taking to many antibiotics your stystem could become immune to them and when you have an infection they don't do much good.
