prilosec

Avatar n tn i was on prilosec and continued to get worse symptoms that i thought were from gerd/hiatal hernia. finally after i had severe chest pain, severe fullness in chest, belching , muscle pain, tingling in arms/feet and a rash on both arms i was taken off it by my doctor. i would strongly suggest going off it - yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Hi all, Back in 2007 I was used Prilosec for 5 months for what was diagnosed as 'silent reflux'. Towards the end of that time I started getting weak finger nails (they would just peel off) and started to worry about the effects of stomach acid suppression. I had a molar break during this time too. Is there any chance taking Prilosec for 5 months would've caused me any permanent damage, or would my stomach have resumed normal acid production after stopping the medication. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Hello, my worst symptom is almost constant nausea- ranges from mild to severe, no vomiting, normal bowel movements.
Avatar f tn I was given Paroxetine for depression/anxiety over a year ago. I didn't take it however. Tried talk therapy for 6 weeks instead. I feel now, however, that I need to go on meds. I was just wondering if someone can tell me what to expect after taking paroxetine. Does it really work? How long does it take it to work? And are there any noticeable changes at all the first few weeks. Before, I did take one pill when I was given the meds.
Avatar m tn I must mention that this also depends a lot of the level and severity of the actual depression and axiety. I do believe situational mild to moderate depression to be cureable, but not the type of biological depression that many of us suffer from. Many may differ on this opinion of mine, but I have 17 years of direct experience with this condition in it's worst manifestation and I can say for fact that it will always be a limiting factor in my life.
Avatar n tn There is no scientific reason for anyone diagnosed with depression to be given psychiatric drugs for it as there is no proven link between depression and brain chemistry to date.
Avatar n tn Everyone I have ever known or heard of that got off any opiates was left with severe depression. Is this a standard side effect and how long will it last and how is it best treated? My friend's nephew just went to an addiction doctor who gave him buprenorphine injections and other scripts to get off pain pills. When he asked about an anti-depressant the doctor said "no mood enhancers for addicts." This seems unusual to me.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 29 year old female on meds for major depression. I am currently taking 300mg of Wellbutrin a day, 100mg of Trazadone, 15mg of Zyprexa and also 20mg of Prilosec for an ulcer. I have been taking this for about a year with no major complications. Recently though, I have been experiencing sudden body jerks(legs, head, upper body,etc.) about 2 or 3 times a day. Could this have anything to do with the meds I'm on?

Avatar f tn But I don't really know if the tests can come out positive. And I just want to know if stress, anxiety and/or depression can cause dull abdominal pain continuously (meaning 24 hours) for 3 month. The reason why I want to ask about this is because many people have told me that mental problems can cause physical problems. So I strated thinking that the pain I have might be from stress, anxiety or depression. I mean who doesn't get strees and anxiety?
Avatar n tn Though I don't think that the digestive problem is a link to my depression, my depression is more than likely a result of my digestive problem taking my life away. I did just start getting therapy to help me try and mentally cope with this though. But I've only been to one session.... I really hope they will help me... Maybe that’s something you can think about doing too?
Avatar m tn The 40 sum doctors I've seen, believe that I just have anxiety/depression, chronic pain disorder and there is nothing they can do to treat the tumor, as they believe it's not causing any of my symptoms. My symptoms are (for me being a 30 year old male); anxiety, depression, chronic debilitating fatigue, headaches like you would not believe, unable to wake up in the morning, but can't sleep at night...it's as if my cortisol levels are completely backwards.
Avatar n tn Lexapro is for depression and anxiety states. She should contiue this drug at least for 2-3 months. Prilosec is for gastric ulceration, this drug can be taken off if she is taking proper meals and if not on any kind of pain killers.
Avatar n tn I have been on Prozac 10 mg. for many years for depression. I have had no ill effects and the drug is effective. I have recently been having some painful orthopedic problems which caused my depression to get worse, so my doctor increased the dose of Prozac to 20 mg. temporarily. Yesterday, the pain management specialist started me on Neurontin for severe back and hip pain. I am on 300 mg. on an increasing dose schedule over several days, finally taking 300 mg. 6 times a day.

Avatar m tn My main symptoms are chronic GERD for over 2 years( I live on Prilosec), inflammation in many areas including skin, bowels, mouth, sinuses, and mental fog, memory loss, anxiety, depression, etc..
Avatar f tn Which they called heartburn, I have had for years. I was permanently put on Prilosec. As a solution to the nausea, they increased my prilosec. In March 2014 I had my gallbladder removed and that got rid of some abdomonal pain. Nausea, fatigue and chest pain stayed. The fatigue is overwhelming at times. I was given prescription Aleve for chest pain, which my doctor called costocondritis.
Avatar f tn FT3, FT4, TPOab, TGab, TSI? Any thyroid-related health concerns? Fatigue, depression, anxiety, chest pain, rapid heart rate, constipation, GERD, heartburn, low vitamins, muscle cramping, leg pain, foot pain, eye and ear pain or ear ringing, brain fog, dry skin, hair loss, sleep loss...
Avatar n tn All tests have been within negative or within normal ranges. Prilosec and Propulsid have been prescribed twice a day thirty mins before meals. We have not seen any significant change since the medication was prescribed. Any suggestions as to the next course of treatment.
Avatar f tn It seems like I have a lot of prescriptions. Lexapro, Valtrex, Prilosec, daily; Spirolact, (diurectic); Topral XL; I just ran out of my prescription for Campral, (to re-fill or not?); some kind of antihistemine..can't recall the name, a topical ointment for Rosecea....just got prescribed ZOCOR for cholesterol (haven't picked up yet...). The thing is, I'd like to have beer or wine, if I could... Oh I don't know. I have a hx of depression and alcoholism, too.
Avatar m tn now this has lead to really bad stomach pains, anxiety, depression and unsociability.the smell happens when my stress level is up, after a long night of drinking, smoking and panic attacks. now i have cutt back on all these extremely, even stopped cold turkey, cause me not smelling good stresses me out which leads me to smell more. YA this sounds crazy but this has turn me into a very insecure person.
Avatar m tn My history is I have had acid reflux, I do have anxiety and depression and fair amount of stress. I WAS a cigar smoker until I heard this news and did not inhale and smoked cigars maybe a few a week during summer and once a month in the winter. I believe my doctor said checkup once a year, does this sound right? Also lately I am just getting scared when I get a little heartburn and just worry I am going to progress to cancer although the doctor said I am no where near that.

Avatar n tn My mother was on long term acid blocker nexium (similar to prilosec (omeprazole) but more powerful) and these were some of the dozens of symptoms that she no longer suffers with since stopping nexium... severe major clinical depression, severe anxiety, severe constant fungal infections, homocysteine in imminent heart attack range, severe angina pain, severe stomach pain (nexium worsened her gastritis), sky high blood pressure - given less than 5 years to live by an international specialist.
Avatar m tn 50 doctor is a younger doctor i may look for old wiser doctor for medications also take prilosec 40 mg daily but that still was not working until i changed my living situation and reduced my daily stress majorly stomach is better now in the morning but due to eating times being a very stressful interaction due to so many people in our home 7 kids from 5 to 16 and four adults. the stress make me sick after eating i suffer from severe anxiety disorder bipolar ADHD depression.
Avatar n tn Is there acid in the vomit? Is it worse in the morning and continues till noon? My depression/anxiety started at 17 yrs of age with hyperacidity and throwing up constantly.No doctor could figure it out.It could be because of the stress hormone CORTISOL. Stress symptoms- http://www.nih.gov/news/pr/sep2002/nichd-09.htm Give him 40mg of Prilosec in the morning.
715068 tn?1392937132 I've seen him have to stop eating because he feels like he is choking. You should try him on Prilosec which is sold over-the-counter and see if he improves. This is the only thing that has helped my husband. He also wants to avoid spicy foods and keep his head elevated at night . Anxiety and depression can cause this as well, so he may have developed some anxiety over getting sick again. It's good that he is seeing a doctor and make sure he stays well hydrated.
