Omeprazole side effects alcohol

Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole side effects alcohol


Avatar n tn Here it is January 2014 and I am pretty sure I have one of the possible side affects of taking omeprazole, severe itchy skin. Twice in the last month I stopped taking it for a few days and believe I even had a withdrawal side affect. This was when I was just falling to sleep it felt like I could not breath. The first time I went to the ER and had various test performed which all came back negative. The second time occurred about 4 days ago when I stopped taking omeprazole again.
Avatar f tn It has been suggested by some that those taking HDK with HC carry an ID card or Medic Alert bracelet indicating the possible need for supplementary doses of HC during periods of stress. Ask your pharmacist or doctor how to obtain this card Side Effects The most common side effects are weakness or lack of strength, gastrointestinal complaints such as nausea or vomiting, liver toxicity, skin reactions, and a potential risk of adrenal suppression.
5268376 tn?1406183312 I looked at Zithromax side effects, they vary by the dosage, single or multiple doses, doses in combination with another drug, and are listed as pre-marketing trials and post-marketing reports. Rhythm issues were reported less than 1% of the time in pre-marketing trials, and also in post-marketing reports. Post marketing reports are apparently voluntary and often include things clearly not related to the drug.
Avatar f tn aside from that i have read it has tons of side effects from urinary problems to mouth problems. avoid all gerd triggers, chest pains are symptoms of gerd(acid reflux) which is somehow connected to gastritis due to excess acids. avoid: chocolates, milk, tomato based products, oily and fried foods. try eating soup or rice porridge for a week.
Avatar m tn Alcohol makes my heart beat fast also but I didn't notice it much when I was younger. Tachycardia is one of the unpleasant side effects of the alcohol being metabolized by your body. 120 bpm is not unsafe.
Avatar f tn I was just curious to see if any of you have already wrapped up your 12 weeks of Incivek. If so, did your side effects get any better? Since I have to treat 48 weeks I have been counting down the days until the Incivek is over and hoping that things will get a little easier once this part is over. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Hi guys i have suffered with reflux on and off for about 7 years. Started off on omeprazole after endoscooy then inxe symptoms stopped would ease myself off them only for symptoms to come back at some point every year and so back on the meds. Last year i got some bad symotoms start up and was fed up with popping pills so tried dgl licorice with aloe vera juice instead. Worked a little but not entirely so went to doc and had another endoscopy (which came back all clear of any nastys).
363682 tn?1299492962 I used to be able to put away alcohol no problem but for the past year have been drinking juices because of the effects of small amounts alcohol. This is difficult especially at this time of year when everyone is drinking. I always end up as the driver because I don't want to drink. One thing that has not been mentioned is if this is hereditary- I am 41 and can remember that when I started drinking my father would barely have a drop. I just assumed it was because he was old!!
Avatar n tn Just to warn you all that some people (me being one of them) experience severe side effects to Omeprazole that are not listed in package inserts or drug info that the pharamacy gives you with your perscription. Check out and search for omeprazole or prilosec. I was taking 40mg omeprazole for almost 3 weeks and it caused severe anxiety, chest pain, dizziness, tight feeling in my throat, arm and leg weakness, abdominal pain, insomnia, and high BP.I thought I was dying.
Avatar f tn If you are on medication check the side effects of each med. Cut down on diet soda as it effects us all in different ways. Try process of elemination of food in your diet to possibly ear mark a food cause. Taking large doses of Tylenol has caused similar problems. Write down what you eat and drink each day to evaluate possible alergetic reactions. Hope this helps.

Avatar f tn Why am i getting the chills and my whole left side feels like it's going to give out any minute. It feels like there is something going right through my heart straight to the back, tha's where all the pain is. It also effects my shoulder too. It also feels like I have indigestion and I have been having stomach problems for almost a whole week now. I am hoping that it's just a flu but the way it's going I think it's something else.
Avatar f tn it sounds like you are having side effects of your pill if you talk to your doctor about these symptoms they will probably change your pill. if its only been 2 months they may ask you to wait until 3 months to see if it settles because the "new hormones" in your body need time to adjust and if after 3 months there still there then its a good indication these are not the ones for you.
Avatar n tn I gave up alcohol and got put back on another antidepressant (mirtazapine). This worked but had pretty bad side effects. I soon started to notice the return of gastritis symptoms. Over 2008 I experiemented with serveral antidepressants which all gave me horrible side effects, I ended up on a low dose of a tricyclic, dosulepin. My gastritis remained for most of the year, and i attempted drinking every 3 months or so untill it started to hurt again.
Avatar m tn My MD ordered an Echocargiogram which came back normal and now he has prescribed Flecainide 100mg bid. I have read the side effects specifically the dizzines and heart beat complications that may occur and was wondering if it is in deed my vagus nerve and not the electrical missfire of my heart the culprit.
5066304 tn?1363282035 Early morning nausea and vomiting can also be due to severe acidity and acid reflux. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. If the vomit is due to reflux, this will help you. Do discuss this with your doctor as well and get yourself examined. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn I do not think there is “maximum” amount of time you can be on therapy. While there are potential side effects from PPI’s the drug is in general very well tolerated. However, in your case I think asking your physician about “stepping down” to being off therapy is a reasonable approach to see if your symptoms return. As for using it as needed, the drug works best when it is taken before the meal that causes heartburn not after.
Avatar f tn What drug classes are there and which is the best on the market (least side effects)? I pay for my prescriptions and i don't mind paying for the drugs straight up, out of the NHS. I have to try this as it could be the answer to my prayers.
Avatar n tn The usual dosage is somewhere between 1 and 15 mg a day. Potential side effects include bleeding, hair loss, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and leukopenia (low blood cell count). The half life (amount of time for half the drug to be cleared from the body is 42 hours but varies widely depending on the individual).
410221 tn?1227635437 I do agree with you of not considering sleep medication for long-term use due to dependency problem, side effects of drug so on. Also these medications do help only for sometime. So it is better to know the cause or some of aggravating factors that actually causing you the sleeplessness and to focus on getting rid of them as far as possible. A variety of lifestyle modifications such as avoidance of alcohol, caffeine, and medications may help controlling symptoms.
Avatar m tn * Is it possible this is just a flare-up and if I just stick with my wonder drug omeprazole that it may again sometime soon completely control my symptoms? (I would love to stay on this drug as I have zero side-effects and it's been so helpful in the past) * Should ask my doctor for a double-dose prescription, or possibly try a new PPI or even an H2? Thanks for any ideas you may have.
Avatar m tn A new generation of NSAIDs, known as the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors, has recently been approved by the FDA. This group of NSAIDs has the advantage of having fewer gastrointestinal side effects – less abdominal discomfort and less risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, than conventional NSAIDs. There are three different COX-2 inhibitors currently available to the public– Vioxx, Celebrex and Bextra.
Avatar n tn So use an antihistamine/decongestant, use your flonase consistently and correctly, use your omeprazole, cut out the alcohol, nicotine and chocolate and keep your head elevated at night. If you are on an ACE inhibitor or SSRI stop them. Look for airborne airway irritants in your workplace and elsewhere.
Avatar m tn thx again!! i just heard that powerful drugs could delay seroconversion,,and based from my experience this drug has some nasty side effects. i just though this would be one of those "powerful drugs"that could prolong my window period. i just needed reassurance from people around here. so my 85 days would be conclusive right?
Avatar n tn Most people take half to four of these at a time with alcohol. It tremendously increases the effects of alcohol, and most people have a huge amount of memory loss the next after taking it. They are not able to remember much of what happened or what they did the night before. Tell her these are terrible for her, especially in her condition. Good Luck, Hun!
Avatar f tn I stopped taking the omeprazole as it didn’t appear to be working and last thing I feel I need if I have anything to do with nerves is a medication that depletes vitamin B 12, one of its side effects. Horrible intermittent sensations in chest and throat (either side of windpipe) that can last for up to or over an hour. Difficult to describe – internal quivering/discomfort almost pain. Also under ribs on both sides. Slight headache.
Avatar f tn I am still in school so maybe this is one of the reason because I am usually stressed out from all of the school work. As of now, I am prescribed to take omeprazole and read the side effects of the medicine itself, I am hoping that I do not have to take this medicine for the rest of my life because I do not want my bones to become weaker. Also I do not really believe in taking medicines. Also for the hiatal hernia, is this something that I should be concerned about?
