Avatar n tn As with ANY DRUG there are potential side effects MEANING the side effects CAN happen, not that they WILL happen. There is NO drug that exist that doesn't have side effects. That's pretty much medication 101. Mypopy, if this is a serious concern of yours by all means talk with a medical EXPERT, your physician.
Avatar f tn ) Unfortunately, Reglan is notorious for its side effects. If these are too much for you (and they sound like they are), ask the doctor to switch you to Domperidone. The drug is NOT available in the US, but is first-line treatment for GP pretty much all over the world. You can find Canadian pharmacies which sell to the US (prescription required) through, which is recommended by the AARP.
Avatar f tn I would appreciate any information that anyone has about this. Also, are there other risk or side effects you know of that I haven't heard about yet. Looking forward to someone responding. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn I took Zantac most of the time. Three years ago I went the doctor for heartburn and gas, mostly burping, they perscribed me to Nexium. I took this for 2 years which controlled my heartburn and gas. For the past year I have been taking Zantac. Three months ago on vacation I had severe heartburn and gas, the Zantac would not stop the symptoms. I went to the doctor again and he perscribed Aciphex, which I took for 10 days, but then I was having bad side effects, such as cramping, nausia, etc.
Avatar n tn Recently I went to a doctor, who diagnosed the problem as IBS and prescribed dicyclomine. I looked at the long list of possible side effects and am hesitant to take it, especially since I am not sure I have IBS. I don't have pain, and I don't feel constipated. Besides IBS, what other problem could this be? Since I don't have pain, are there alternative medicines with fewer and less risky side effects?
170935 tn?1225374676 I never really connected the two together,but after reading this thread, I now wonder if there really is a link! I am very burpy, impresses my 7yo son immensely but embarrasses my 8 yo daughter no end! I have noticed that eating seems to aggravate the already delicate balance of my internals and the PVCs definitely seem more noticeable after ingestion of anything, even plain water....
Avatar n tn Do you take any medications ? I had stomach and gas problems on celexa, zoloft, nexium , acifex and problems when taking alot of fish oil ? ConcernedLady do you know if its ok to combine licorice with protonix and pepsid ? I have read that licorice is an antidepressant also .
Avatar n tn Hi - I take 2 Nexium a day to control my heartburn/acid reflux. I don't have any side effects from the medication and I'm allergic to alot of things. In answer to your question, all of your symptoms are quite possible related. Hopefully your doctors will pin point exactly what the problem is. Don't be surprise if they can't give you an answer and tell you that you must have IBS. This is what happened to me. Anyway, best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn The sharp pains could be from the gas they pumped in you to remove your gallbladder. Usually the pent up gas that wasn't completely released will cause pain or discomfort. I don't know how long it is all supposed to last for the average person.
Avatar n tn Thank you for visiting the Family Practice Forum. When I hear of sinus infections that persist despite repeated courses of antibiotics, I begin to think of Gastroesophageal Reflux. Think of it like this, acid ... if it comes up out of the stomach into the esophagus (food tube), can, along with causing irritation of the membranes of the esophagus, cause the release of "gas". This gas has been linked to irritation of the throat and nasal passages.
Avatar n tn I also was put on SSRI but did not like the initial side effects and decided not to continue with daily medication management. I do have a script for Ativan to be used sparingly. Good luck with your stress test, I think the best thing you are doing for yourself and your family is to speak with someone professionally. I just want you to know that you are not alone, your physical symptoms are real, once you accept that the symptoms are related to your anxiety, you can move forward.
Avatar f tn I don't want to continue on the Nexium much longer due to the bad side effects of taking it long term, but I can't have ulcers that aren't healed either. I found out last week that I am pregnant, so a repeat endoscopy to see if they are still present would be highly unrecommended. I'm just not sure what to do anymore. I am due for a follow up with my gastroenterologist in March, but I was hoping to go back with an "All is well" be off the Nexium for good.
Avatar n tn They did an ekg on the spot (which came back normal), blood work which came back normal, chest xray which was normal, and urine test which was normal and I was sent home I then went to my doctor and he chalked it up to anxiety and prescribed lexapro (which I never ended up taking, scared of the side effects) the same thing happened in January of 08 (a few months later) and I called an ambulance, but I felt better immediately after they came then, I went to the ER again in February 08 with t
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing the same symptoms for about six months now. I seem to have sometimes dull sometimes sharp pains under my breast bone. I get bloated very easily after eating. I burp a lot of stomach gas. Lots of belching ensues. Sometimes I feel like my esophagus swells up and then I can feel my heart beating in my chest, the fluttering and butterfly feeling. Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and causes anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats.
Avatar f tn Im posting this in hopes that somebody out there is going through the same thing as me and has found a "cure"! I get heart palpitations and episodes of afib from stomach and intestinal gas. Been to the doc, heart is fine, blood work is fine, blah blah blah. Been reading FAR too many posts where Dr's do NOT believe that there is a connection between stomach issues and heart rhythm and Im starting to get VERY frustrated.
Avatar n tn I am a 38 year old female. I have noticed this correlation as well. I am a vegetarian and tend to be gassy, plus I eat a lot of high fiber foods. I brought this up at my last visit to the cardiologist. He said that there is a correlation between gas and Afib. That gas stimulates the vagus nerve. He advised me to take GasX. The problem for me is that it seems to help me temporarily, but ultimately causes me to become constipated. Then I have to take another pill.....and it goes on.
Avatar n tn Does anyone else have a problem where their doctor does not believe them when they tell them their PPIs are causing bad side effects for them? I've tried all of them and all caused extreme discomfort where I can hardly have a quality life. Prevacid was the least of all the evils but I still have extreme nausea and lightheadedness. I take the pill around 6 am every morning and the nausea tends to last till between noon and 2 pm.
Avatar n tn However, some patients react differently (i.e. in terms of side effects and efficacy) to different medications. You may want to try other medications (like Prevacid or Aciphex). However if medications cannot control your GERD symptoms, then surgical therapy may be a consideration in the future. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Avatar m tn I was on the Hep C therapy, for a little over three months. The side effects were so bad (me personaly) that the doctor took me off them, I did come down to non detectable virus load. I have been off the MEDS, in 2 days, I will be off them for 4 weeks. I was told that it was 4 weeks to be off them and two weeks to get back to were I was before the MEDS. The effects are getting a little better, but they are still strong.
Avatar n tn OMG it's 2:01am and I have horrible gas pains. It's so bad I'm feeling nauseous. The pains have me sweating. Thank you one, thank you all for the Gas-X and the Tumms recommendation. I will go to the store tomorrow morning and purchase both. This is ridiculous. During the day I burp like I'm a participant in a beer-belching contest, and at night, I think because of all the air I swallow, I have gas cramps that are simply debilitating.
170935 tn?1225374676 Dr put me on Topril XL (beta blocker) for 1 year til I read the side effects that can actually make PVC's worse, so I got off them and stayed off all caffeine. I've been great until recent when I was having a dry cough so Dr changed my usual Lisinopril (high blood pressure) back to a beta blocker. Well I also had a very bad night of IBS, worse I ever had with wanting to pass out and sweating so bad. I decided from then on to change my diet, NO more fats or dairy, seems to work.
Avatar n tn Talk about the death grip on the steering wheel and spasmotic foot on the gas pedal! Hah! I wouldn't blame you for taking a boat to get around that mess coming home. Hope you are finding Florida all you expected it to be? J.B.
Avatar m tn Sometimes llaying on your back on the floor and rolling from side to side with move the gas and allow you to pass it. I have many friends with same problem, stress doesn't help nor as I said anxiety. Hope this helps everyone.
Avatar n tn I'm told that they won't do any harm so, unless you have side effects, there's not a downside to trying them. Your Doc might even have samples. This is something you can do now and it reduces the amount of work the pancreas has to do which will reduce any damage if damage is occuring to your pancreas again. A low-fat, high fibre diet can make a big difference to people with abdominal pain.
