Prilosec for gas

Common Questions and Answers about Prilosec for gas


Avatar n tn Glen, Thanks for the advice (that goes for everyone!) I do notice that when I dont take my prilosec, I really pay for it!! Thanks for the advice.
Avatar n tn Maybe some of this is related to fear and anxiety. Since you are having these feelings often now, you could possibly be afraid of embarrassing yourself around others.

268911 tn?1213748381 I'm new to this forum and was wondering if someone might be able to tell me if abdominal pain, constipation and gas are side effects of PPI's. My neighbor is a doctor and prescribed me prevacid, I took them for 2 weeks, and began to notice these problems. I told him this and his response was "Prevacid does not have those side efffects." but when I search "Prevacid side effects" these symptoms show up on every page. ANy direction woudl be appreciated.
Avatar f tn About 2 months ago I had bad acid reflux. I started taking Prilosec which helped a bunch. Shortly after being on it, I started getting gallbladder pain. I have had it since. My Dr. did blood work and I got an ultra sound on my liver/ gallbladder. Everything came back normal. Yesterday, I stopped taking the prilosec to see if it was giving me gallbladder pain. It seems better....not contracting pain. I still have mild pain. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn So I tried zantac but it only took the edge off for a few hours. Yesterday I had enough, and called my doctor, he called a prescription for prilosec. And as of this morning, so far so good.
Avatar n tn I have been told I need to take Prilosec ("for life"), along with Bentyl and a couple of other antispasmodics. Within the last few months, Prilosec et al is not doing same job. I am very bloated every day-Gas X helps but I take 3Xday. I can feel the food coming back up. I read Prilosec and Prevacid are about the same. What about Nexium-can it work better, cut down constipation, cramping, gas bloating, spasms?
Avatar m tn He told me to take 2 pills a day i think each pill is 20 mg, and he wanted me to take it for 6 months! I ended up taking them for 2 months, and i didnt notice any improvement towards my panic attacks or anything, instead i actually had MORE side effects like headaches, hair loss, stomach pain, loss of appetite and fast heartbeat.
Avatar n tn I also gas up if I get very hungry which makes it hard to eat and get my stomach full, which makes me gas up. I take two generic Prilosec every morning which helps, but I still wake up gassed up. After I get rid of the early morning gas, I belch quite a bit the rest of the day, but at least it doesn't nauseate me. I don't pass much gas, so it all appears to be in my esophagus and stomach. I had my gallbladder removed in 1974.
Avatar n tn Six yrs ago i was scoped, and told i had mild gastritis,I was put on prilosec,which worked great for 2 years,the symptoms of excess gas and burping or the need to burp returned. I was put on prevacid and it worked most of the time with only occasional the prevacid does not seem to help as well.My symptoms are upper gas,only occassional slight stomach pains. I can not go to sleep for hours after eating.(gas).I seem to set gas and slight acidy feeling also on a empty stomach.
Avatar n tn I do have a high acidic stomach, which I take 30 mg Previced everyday. Prilosec gave me stomach cramps and diarrhea. About 3 years ago I began noticing I was haveing more gas than normal. It has gotten worse in the past 18 months. It is ordorless but not soundless. I may just be walking across my class room a fart pops pops out, some small some not so small. I don't have any bloating are gas pain build up, just unpredictable farts. This is quiet embarrassing.
Avatar n tn All the over the counter meds haven't worked for me, including Tums, Prilosec OTC, Pepsid AC, Gas-X, stool softeners. One more reason why I know it's my stomach and not my lungs/heart... I took a laxitive to purposely flush out my bowels and I could breath very normally immediately after going to the bathroom. I did it to prove a point to myself that I wasn't going crazy. The doc that gave me the Adavan in the ER made me feel like it was psychogenic (in my head).
Avatar f tn This can help tremendously with Gas even thought its advertised for acid reflux. I have noticed a huge difference from when Im on it vs when Im not. And its fairly inexpensive.
Avatar m tn Pepcid AC is an H-2 blocker like Zantac. Prilosec, is a newer generation of acid blockers called PPI's (protein pump inhibitors) that literally shut down most acid production. Prilosec is OTC but you can others like Nexium with a prescription. As long as your doctor gave you a choice, I'd say go with the H-2 pump if it works.
Avatar n tn I have been on Prilosec OTC for 4 months now. Immediately after starting prilosec I started getting very loose stools...and have not had a normal one since. I cut the dose down to a 1/2 a pill a day. On October 31, I started developing heart palpitations, which sent me to the ER. I then followed up wth a cardiologist and had a 30 day event heart monitor put on as well as a stress/echo. I am awaiting results, but it has been over 3 weeks now.
Avatar f tn I had horrible gas for a few days until I took a couple doses of probiotics. Cleared right up.
Avatar f tn Decided to try using the restroom. Gas. Gas and more gas. Geez. False alarm had me a little scared. Happen to anyone else?
Avatar m tn Burping sometimes helps but is difficult to induce. Gas-x and Alka Seltser provide a little relief for a short time, but once they start the symptoms can go on for days. I'm taking Prilosec 2x/day and haven't noticed any acid type symptoms. What causes the gas, and how is it treated?
Avatar f tn Have been taking mirolax for the constipation also Prilosec for acid reflux. Nothing is helping or working. In pain and misery every day. Since procedures has also had water mouth so much so that I have to constantly spit because swallowing causes more gas and pain. Any suggestions please.
Avatar f tn For about 3 months I have been experiencing a lot of stomach problems. About a year ago I was diagnosed as being gluten intorlarent. For about 6 months after cutting out all gluten products I was feeling great! Now I'm having all kinds of problems again. Everytime I eat I feel bloated. I can feel my stomach moving around after I eat, I think it may be gas. I burp a lot and a lot of the burps have a nasty taste to them. I feel like I have a lump in my throat.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed months ago with acid reflux and take prilosec which helps. 2 weeks ago I had horrible stomach aches and saw the dr. Since then, I've continued to have horrible gas pains and bowel sounds. She sent me for a Ct thinking it was an intestine inflammation...she found 2 large complex cysts one on each ovary. I had an MRI on Sunday and she called saying they found 2 small simple cysts on the left ovary and nothing on the right. I'm so confused! How could it change so quickly?
Avatar n tn That feeling you are describing is a classic anxiety symptom. Gas is probably one of the worst foes for people who suffer from anxiety and panic. Gas can bring on both very fast. Gas can travel up and it can travel down. When it's trapped, you get panic. When it travels up, you get heart symptoms. A large build up of gas in the upper intestinal tract can cramp the space that your heart is used to having to beat nice and free.
Avatar n tn as air gets down inside you - thus gas builds up. I for now have this problem with trapped gas pushing upwords, causing massive cramps and pains! I take gas X pills 4 or 6 of them at a time along with ant acid chew pill.. this helps but takes a few mins to work. trapped gas and gas build up can mock or fake heart attack symptoms - as iv been in the ER twice thinking im having a heart attack ! and it was trapped gas.
Avatar n tn Only, I have just recently gone to the doctor and they prescribed Prilosec OTC which is for heartburn. My pain is in my intestine which causes severe bloating. I, like yourself, want my healthy life back. It started out where no matter what it was that I ate, it would cause for a burning sensation. But then it turned to bloating. I went to the Dr.'s office and after many many questions, they came up with nothing.
Avatar f tn I have been put on cimitidine and propulsid, now on prilosec, eliminated the cimitidine until I take the prilosec for 10-days. If this doesn't provide relief then, they will scope for a diagnose. The pain is also consentrated below the rib cage. This seems to be an epidemic! Is there any cure for us?
Avatar n tn it sounds like you should be taking acid reflux medication such as nexium,prilosec for your stomach. have you tried overt the counter ones without prescription like zantac,or even alka selzer or gas x??
Avatar n tn My allergist prescribed Prilosec for my food allergies (gas, bloating, cramping, pain, and diarria, but no heartburn or such). I've been taking it for a week and a half and it is helping. I noticed that most of the people using this forum take Prilosec for heartburn type of problems. Since stomach acid is causing my digestive problems, then why do my symptoms differ (no heartburn)?
170935 tn?1225374676 Add me to the list of people with gas and PVCs. Yesterday and today were unsettling days for me. It goes like this. Gas (lots of it) builds up in intestines and stomach and then I get the palps or pvcs. Some swelling too. When I belch a lot and get rid of some of the gas they subside and so does the swelling. Anyways when at worst my pvcs are like: beat..beat..thump.....beat..beat..thump.....beat..beat..beat. Here's my thread. http://www.medhelp.

Thanks, Beth ___________________ Dear Beth, Prilosec inhibits acid secretion.
Avatar n tn bloating, gas, dry mouth, nauseous, fatigue. Last year I was given Nexium and Prilosec with same symptoms stopped taking it after 3 days. I'm at a loss as to what to try next. I'm going for an ultrasound tomorrow to see if anything else is going on. Have you been taking anything for it?
