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 m tn Prilosec, Nexium Side Effects: Acid Reflux Medication Heart Attack Class Action Lawsuit Investigation A recent study found that proton pump inhibitor heartburn treatments such as Nexium, Prilosec and Prevacid may be linked to an increased risk of heart attack, heart failure or sudden cardiac death.
Avatar m tn The weird side effects continued and new side effects emerged such as white hair,. hair falling out, weight loss,. muscle soreness,. stomach pain, and runny nose. I complained about this again and finally after 3 months, the doc switched the medication to a different PPI. I still had side effects so then I was switched to an H2 blocker. I have been off all PPIs and h2 blockers for 4 months but im left with side effects that I have no idea how to get rid of.
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 Thank you. So, I go in for another liver enzyme blood test in a month. I guess I should stop taking both omenprazole and zantac until then? Is that what you would do? 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.
2105146 tn?1334597383 As Will said, for a person with little liver damage aspirin can be taken with adverse effects on the liver. For a person with End-Stage Liver Disease a dose which is safe for a healthy person could cause kidney failure, massive internal bleeding and other nasty things that should be avoided at all costs.
Avatar f tn The only doctor that can help you at this time with issues having to do with your liver is a hepatologist (a liver specialist) at a liver transplant center. Pain is common in person with ESLD and can only be managed by a doctor that understands the exact nature and extent of your liver disease. Since you have stopped drinking you may be eligible for a life-saving transplant at a liver transplant center. Without proper treatment your illness will only get worse over time, I'm afraid.
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 n tn Sometimes it lasts for two months, other times symptoms can last for 6 months. They treated his infection? When did he get treated? The omeprazole can also have side effects of nausea, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, sleep deprivation, abdominal swelling, and many other serious complications due to adverse drug reactions. You can look them up for yourself here: You need to keep trying to get the drs to figure this out...
Avatar f tn Most knowledgeable hepatologists prescribe proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs like Nexium or Prilosec. Both are generally considered liver friendly; omeprazole is available generically if cost is an issue.
Avatar n tn When I came home I read up the side effects and I seem to have all of them. My Doc said to try them again and within a week all the nastiness came back. Have now stopped again and feel so much better. I was blaming the methotrexate for feeling ill but I now know it wasn't, don't know what the long term effect will be re the naproxen. Is their an alternative to omeprazole ?
Avatar m tn Everyone wanted to talk about my blood pressure and liver enzymes instead of addressing the side effects of my medication - Protonix. My doctor actually increased my dose of Protonix from 40mg to 80mg everyday. That was in March. Shame on me for not researching Protonix then! Over the next two months I started experiencing increased joint pain and stiffness. In mid-June, the pain started in my shoulders and elbows and sleeping was a challenge since I am a side sleeper.
Avatar n tn Red_Star gave good advice regarding side effects, as well as info regarding levels of stomach acid. Paradoxically, ingesting several tablespoons of cider, which is slightly acidic, will assist with GERD. Cutting to the chase the primary problem with long-term use of medications is cumulative liver damage. There are blood tests that can determine when this starts to develop. Gabapenten is (in my opinion) a nightmare on Elm street.

Avatar n tn I refused to take Interferon treatments because of all the negative side effects. I've recentlty had a liver biopsy, ultrasound, and many lab tests. The only gastroenterologist we have near here is very unpleasant and also unhelpful. I'm a 72 year old woman; I know we are often invisible to physicians. Also, I can't digest meat very well so I have to eat vegetables, fruit, bread. Those are all carbo foods which tend to cause flatulence, right? What CAN I eat?
Avatar m tn It is more subtle than things like tylenol but it doesn't' have the side effect or being hard on your liver. You take it two or three times daily on an empty stomach. You could do some research on turmeric or it's active ingredient curcumin as well.
Avatar m tn 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. COX-2 inhibitors have been associated with some liver dysfunction, although not as commonly as other NSAIDs. Recently, Vioxx has been removed from the market due to heart-related problems.
Avatar f tn Three common side effects of omeprazole are nausea, mild diarrhea, and headache. Omeprazole also lists as possible side effects, though not common, of constipation, depression and anxiety. I remember getting a nasty headache while on omeprazole myself, unlike my usual migraines. The doctor suggested I go off of the drug, see if the headache stopped and go back on it to see if it started up again.
Avatar f tn Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) and other NSAIDs are drugs that are widely used for their anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. They also have the potential to cause drug-induced liver disease. In fact, many NSAIDs have been withdrawn from the market due to their hepatotoxicity. All NSAIDs have the potential to cause liver injury. However, some NSAIDs are more hepatotoxic than others.
Avatar n tn Other possibilities are inflammatory bowel conditions such as Crohn’s, celiac, IBS etc. It can be side effects of slimming pills, if you take any. Bacterial overgrowth and short bowel syndrome where food passes very quickly can be another cause. Take probiotics and see if it helps. While you wait for the appointment with the gastroenterologist, please change your diet and take probiotics and see if they help.
220282 tn?1214322419 Mymain concern is would this be a long term teatment or wil they remve the peg if and when he starts to eat more. And are there any side effects. His consultant has gone annual leave nd the only info i am getting s off the internet if yone can help i'd really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn h-pylori drugs have many sides, even fatal on liver, i took them too but i suggest to take them the shortest time possible and try to stop them to see if all the damage is you feel is due to these drugs you may also use alinia+other h-pylori drugs to boost response and clear pylori fast, i remember i just took 2 antibiotics+omeprazole for about 3 weeks to clear it Omeprazole can cause some very serious, even fatal conditions associated with the liver.
Avatar n tn But antacids alone won't heal an inflamed esophagus damaged by stomach acid. Overuse of some antacids can cause side effects, such as diarrhea or constipation. Medications to reduce acid production. Called H-2-receptor blockers, these medications include cimetidine (Tagamet HB), famotidine (Pepcid AC), nizatidine (Axid AR) or ranitidine (Zantac 25, Zantac 75, Zantac 150). H-2-receptor blockers don't act as quickly as antacids, but they provide longer relief.

Avatar f tn Anti-inflammatory meds can damage your stomach causing burning and even bleeding, I had this aften 10 days on Advil! Google your meds and see what their side effects are, one of them may be the culprit. Your doctor has the ability to get you into a GI doctor sooner than Sept., I know because I've worked for both.
