Common Questions and Answers about Prilosec and pepto bismol


967168 tn?1477588089 I started treatment for H. Pylori today and it's made me so sick...hopefully this isn't a reaction to the antibiotics (allergic to PCN) and it's just the meds getting rid of the bacteria in my GI tract... Prilosec, Flagyl, Clarithromycin & Pepto Bismol for the Bismuth in it. 13 days to go...
1437406 tn?1283842910 I have acid reflux and usually take prilosec but my doctor changed me to ranitidine. Tums also helps. Dr. said NO Pepto Bismol. How far along is your wife?
1391312 tn?1421090593 Pill form of Pepto bismol works. Bill1954 suggested prilosec. I think I am going to try it.
Avatar f tn Six weeks ago I had my first episode of severe stomach pain (upper center abdomen) with by nausea and vomiting, which lasted 22 hours; I tried heat, ice, Pepto-Bismol, Maalox, Tylenol, peppermint tea and whining; nothing relieved the pain. After two more episodes in the next two weeks, I saw my doctor who suspected an ulcer, prescribed Prilosec, and ordered blood tests. Helicobacter pylori was negative but platelets were elevated (456) as was fasting glucose (115); the surprise was AST at 384.

Avatar f tn Have you tried alka seltzer, pepto bismol? Maybe one of the antacids like prevacid, prilosec. Another one is Omeprazole that you can buy over the counter. Two more, Pepcid and Zantac. Otherwise, go to the doc.
Avatar f tn So before any of you spend thousands, try the Pepto Bismol. We had to give her two Pepto Bismol pills yesterday because she threw up a little while after we gave her the first one. But once I gave her the second one, that seemed to do the trick. I hope this post helps someone that reads this.
560753 tn?1216055652 After that he prescribed me with Nexium, Prilosec and that was it. I was ok for a month or so and then I developed constipation. So I was switching from diarrea to constipation on and off. The burping continue and it seems to happend before I get my period. Is 5:41 am and I got up because of gas in my stomach and diarrea. I haven't being able to have a deasent night of sleep for the past 4 days. That happens every month. And I just don't know what to do. Can Anyone help me please???
379229 tn?1208643019 I have had allergic reactions to both PPIs and the acid reducers and even Maalox and Pepto Bismol. So, those are out. I had been drinking lots of water, and barely eating. The symptoms went away for nearly three months after I suffered for a little bit after I had my gallbladder removed(normal recovery time). During that time, I was not drinking so much water, at least 16 or 20 ounces, but not much more along with Coke. I have no insurance, so can't afford a gastroenterologist.
593603 tn?1229381762 My RE and my OB both said I could take Zantac 150 - - didn't want me to take Pepto Bismol (b/c it has aspirin in it) or Prilosec OTC (it's a category C).
Avatar f tn When I swallow it makes a gurggle sound in my throat. Have had these symptoms since November, doctor said it was acid reflux and put me on prilosec - didn't help!! Any suggestions of what this maybe caused from?? Thank you!
Avatar n tn I ended up in the ER They did a full blood work again, an x-ray and a CT scan all normal except a small cyst on one ovary and distention of the small and large bowel. The pain continued and the diarrhea eased more. I went back to the Gastro Dr and he said IBS and ordered some fecal tests that I requested. All came back normal. he told me to come back in 6 months. I went to my GP who prescribed an anti depressant / anti anxiety medication which I tried for 2 weeks it did nothing.
Avatar n tn Im wondering if anyone has ideas my GI doc has put me on Rubinol for the pain (nonnarcotic), miralax to try to stimulate me to go to the bathroom and 40 ml prilosec and im scheduled to get a colonoscopy and endoscopy sometime soon but does anyone here have any similar symptoms or have any tips for me?
Avatar m tn I have nothing better to focus on. I just want to go the doctor and get a check up and blood tests and an x-ray maybe to make sure there is nothing wrong with me. Even if there is something wrong with me it would be good to know what it is because I could get treatment for it. I have had people on both sides of my family get diabetes in the last two years so I have a family history of health problems.
Avatar n tn Do I have cancer, or could this just be IBS as well. I currently only take OTC meds for acid reflux and I take pepto bismol. Any help would be great! Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with H.
Avatar f tn avoid soft drinks, spicy foods, pepper. Bleeding from stomach causes black stools, so does pepto bismol. you might have a small ulcer, get checked monday unless things get worse. try tums, this will help also.
Avatar m tn I use zantac when i feel these symptoms, tylenol and lately pepto bismol and drinking veggie juice( i cant seem find just cabbage juice?). They all seem to work for a short term but nothing for a long time. People keep telling me to use prilosec but you see i am from Canada, where its just starting to make its way into this country and have not seen it on store shelves.I also do not have a family doctor and not like the states i cant just call any type of specialist without any referal.
Avatar f tn “GERD symptoms are often relieved by over-the-counter, acid-reducing agents called antacids. Common antacids include * Alka-Seltzer * Maalox * Mylanta * Pepto-Bismol * Riopan * Rolaids Other drugs used to relieve GERD symptoms are anti-secretory drugs such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar m tn Our job is to listen. Too often we take Prilosec, Pepto Bismol, treat hangovers, etc., and continue the bad behaviors. In the long run all these things are still taking a toll on our bodies......and we keep the medical field in business, BIG business. Thing is, these harmful things we do to our bodies often cripple and maim us before they kill us. Your body doesn't want alcohol.

Avatar n tn I try to minimize my acidic intake to see if that will help, and yes, pepto-bismol definitely helps. I wonder how long it takes to repair damaged stomach lining, from Nsaid overuse??? Any thoughts on that. I am going to try drinking ginger tea to see if that helps...
Avatar n tn When I do take something that bothers my stomach, the pain is really intense and it can take hours to go away. Pepto-bismol and tums don't help me at all in these cases. I'd like to say that I'll just make sure I'll never take a medication again that bothers me, but I think that's unlikely. Does anyone else have this problem and is there anything that can be done?
974371 tn?1424656729 Took Omeprazole then Pepto Bismol twice and my Xanax, 1/2 pill. Now, my mouth is extremely dry. The doctor had given me Carafate and I finally broke down and used some. After almost 2 hours, not much improvement, mouth drier and now getting a headache. Ideas?
Avatar m tn But in the evening my neck started hurting more and I also started getting a minor headache. The ab pains were very slight and I concentrated more on my neck and head. Plus I also realized I had a loss of appetite. So basically as of today my neck still hurts, slight headaches and loss of appetite. I keep checking my temperature, and there is no sign of fever. I do have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning, but I am hoping to maybe get some insight before then.
Avatar n tn I've heard about vitamins,herbs, beta blockers, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, anti-acids, pepto bismol, tons of water, on and on and on.... The truth is we all get better with time anyways. And then it comes back. It is very difficult to assess any treatment without a study. I wish you all the best and hope it works for you. Let us know if they are resolved permanently or they come back again.
1630244 tn?1299705772 If you are no longer taking them maybe an OTC antacids such as Maalox, Mylanta, prilosec, xantac, ect. might help. OR skip the antacid and use Only Pepto Bismol or Lomitil for the diarrhea if severe enough to treat that. If it does not help it could be possible the ginger. It the dose of ginger is too high it can cause those symptoms as well so try going off of it and see if your symptoms subside.
Avatar m tn Avoid chocolate, peppermint and citrus fruit, plus chilli and tomato. Keep a food diary....see what does and doesn't affect u everyone is different. The main thing, according to all the medical journals I have read is the weight and the bed head raising.
