974371 tn?1424656729 - If you have had specific tests to verify high gastric acid levels, please disregard my previous statement. Alprazolam intake, may also contribute to dry mouth as it is one of the possible side effects. A gastroenterologist who does not know what a prebiotic is? Really? What did the Stanford doctor prescribe? Do you remember? Prebiotic causing you sickness, hmm.
Avatar n tn I was taking Omeprazole for acid reflux. I was recently going on eight weeks of taking it. I too WAS suffering from dry mouth and tongue and a severe burning sensation in my throat that was getting worse. I feared the worst, waking up with severe dry mouth, panic attacks as to what was happening. I couldnt even make a drop of saliva. I stopped taking the omeprazole last night. For the first time in weeks i slept like a baby.
974371 tn?1424656729 Dicyclomine is a commonly prescribed drug and is well tolerated by most patients, though a few may experience minor side effects. Major side effects are rare to occur. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
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 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.
974371 tn?1424656729 He has prescribed Omeprazole 40 mg 2 x a day. Levsin for cramping that I have a horrible time taking due to chronic dry mouth and it doesn't seem to help much. Zofran as needed for nausea. I take low dose Xanax. I also started using Gas X. He prescribed Nortriptyline, which I have not started taking yet due to dry mouth side effects. I have been to the ER 3 times now due to stomach pain and bloating and nausea. I also have been having problems with hacking phelgm buildup in my throat.
1387175 tn?1326404597 Saw an endo doc and she told me to not take the Nexium or Omeprazole (Prilosec) due to the possible side effects. Called my doc the other day because I have had stomach pain and feeling of nausea. He tells me to take the Omeprazole!!! Next day, no better so asked the pharmacist if I could take it 3 times a day instead of twice. He told me I was already on twice the dose and should only be taking it once a day (20 mg).
974371 tn?1424656729 My GI doctor here doesn't like that idea due to my numerous medication reactions and my BP usually runs on the low end. My Internist dies not like that due to me having major dental issues now from the dry mouth. He wants me to try low dose estrogen for a month to see if it helps the night sweats. I am 63, long past menopause, and am afraid of side effects from that, nausea being one! I have tried two different probiotics and both made me feel worse.
Avatar f tn Well, it is now after 11:00 pm and I am no better. I finally tried to eat some soup and crackers. Mtook another Omeprazole before. Still bloated, nauseated and "extremely" dry mouth and throat. Biotene products, drinking water, sucking sugarless lemon lozenges, nothing helps. Was laying down watching TV and again broke out in a sweat. Tried taking a Tums, no help. The GI doc gave me a prescription for generic Levsin. I have never taken this before. Side effects scare me.
974371 tn?1424656729 The problem with Levsin is that it has a well known side effect for dry mouth. I don't understand why he has you on Omeprazole for IBS, it's a PPI and helps with problems related to stomach acid. Did he say what it's supposed to be doing? You could also see about doing low doses of anti-depressants if anti-spastics don't work for you.
974371 tn?1424656729 GI doc has me on Omeprazole, then Generic Levsin, then Dicyclomine, which was really drying me out and I have chronic dry mouth and throat. He told me to go back to the Kevsin. I hate taking pills,mso usually try half. Last week was having irregular heartbeats for overv2 days so finally went to the ER. Doc there decided it was the Levsin and said to stop it. Finally got my own doctor who said to stop the Levsin and the Dicyclomine. Great!
1140722 tn?1266356279 An endoscope is run down the esophagus where suction pulls a flap of tissue down in order to guard the esophageal opening from the harmful effects of stomach acid. Fasteners keep the tissue permanently in place where it will eventually fuse to function naturally. At the end of recovery, a protective barrier prevents acid reflux and the symptoms that go along with it.
Avatar m tn Dry mouth, headache, nausea, sweating, somnolence, insomnia, diarrhea, constipation, decreased appetite, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, pyrexia, sinusitis, rash, pruritus, bradycardia, tachycardia, hypertension, hypotension, spontaneous abortion. would this delay my seroconversion or window period? thx again and sorry for the bother.
974371 tn?1424656729 I am afraid of side effects as I suffer from dry mouth and throat horribly, negative biopsies for Sjorgens. Anyone else gone through this or taken Clonodine?
974371 tn?1424656729 He also gave me generic Levsin, which didn't seem to help much. He then gave me Dicyclomine to take 4 times a day. I have chronic dry mouth and throat and now problems with phlegm. He advised I try the Levsin again. 3 nights ago, I was noticing heart palpitations that continued into the next day and night. Of course, could not get my doctor so went to the ER and was put on a monitor and they saw the pal patios.
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 n tn my mouth and tongue feel like they're constantly burning and my throat is so dry. I've had to stop taking gaviscon as it burns my mouth, throat and wind pipe. i'm off to see the doctor again but really need some advice what to do next. I'm worried this constant acid will lead to damaging my vocal chords, throat and other. i'm at a total loss what to do. i did have a endoscopy 2 yrs ago and they found slight gastritis and the p.h monitor was fairly normal then.
Avatar f tn You might try a chamomile tea or Kava tea which are natural antidepressants with hardly any side effects. I think the only side effects are that you have to pee more often. You might want to try a Liver Detox available at your health food store also. They usually contain Burdock root which is known to safely cleanse the liver. - I had a CT scan of my brain because I'm afraid to get a tumor (my Dad died of a malignant brain tumor).
974371 tn?1424656729 Side effects list dry mouth, nausea, purpura and bruising.
Avatar n tn All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects.
Avatar f tn Thank you so much for your help..........I also would like to know if you might know what kind of side effects there are for the Prilosec? I hate taking things, but will if I have took a while of suffering before I even started one Pepcid a day..........:-) Thank you again!
974371 tn?1424656729 I have been extremely sick all day with gas, bloating, stomach ache, nausea. Took Xanax, Oepto, Gas-X, Tigan, ginger and honey,matured a little oatmeal, very dry mouth and throat, nothing is helping and am getting worse.
Avatar m tn I'm hoping that I can stay away from using GERD medication because of the long-term side effects of it's use on the kidneys and such. Replies would be very helpful.
Avatar n tn I realize I need to make an appointment with a Gastro doctor but I want to know what all of my options may be to treat the problem instead of just the symptoms.. I also do not trust the long term effects of these drugs. Thanks. Rick S.
1305271 tn?1320988348 You sound exactly like my sister, dizzy spells, balance goes, dry mouth (she drinks loads of water), she knows when a spell is coming as her mouth goes completely dry and now if she has an episode when she is in public she has started to get panic attacks but ok dosent if shes at home. Shes had a brain scan to check for tumours, etc all was clear. They are testing her for alsorts at the moment, she is going for another MRI scan, they are checking for menieres disease, vertigo, MS.
Avatar n tn my father has this, his is accompanied with xerostomia (dry mouth), which is a complication of his smoking. what i recommend for everyone is to start taking your b vitamins, mainly folate and riboflavin, of course to stop smoking, and avoid unneccassary antibiotics. these are the measures we took for him, your case could differ greatly, good luck MD.
Avatar n tn Ill start out by saying i have sojgrens syndrome which can cause dry mouth eyes, nose my doc tells me because i dont have suffecient saliva in my mouth it is causing tiny cuts which makes it so i cant eat ketchup, salt, spicy foods,chocolate the list goes on these foods burn like crazy so far nothing has helped i am on evoxac for the dry mouth which helps alittle but cuts are still there and burning continues.
