Common Questions and Answers about Protonix and pepcid


7763229 tn?1396630495 I am on pepcid a.c. now and it tears my stomach up. Mmm I have an appt today so we'll see.
Avatar m tn For the last 3 weeks I've been having symptoms of gastritis, my primary physician put me on reglan, pepcid, and bentyl which I have been taking for 2 weeks with the exception of the bentyl which I only took for one week. After symptoms did not go away I was referred to a G I specialist who sent me for an endoscopy. Yesterday I had an endoscopy and was diagnosed with, Hiatal hernia-sliding, gastritis, and a peptic ulcer.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a pepcid ulcer and reflux a little over a week ago and was put on a once-daily dose of 40mg Protonix. Ever since then I have been experiencing uncomfortable constipation with full relief coming only once. As you can imagine, it's not only uncomfortable but embarrassing to be bloated and gassy almost every day. How long should I be on the Protonix, and should I be taking anything else to help ease the constipation?
Avatar m tn I have no history of bad anxiety and racing heart like this.. So I decided to stop taking the Protonix...the last time i took it was thursday and i still feel like im in hell.... You would think I am detoxing from some other hard core drug and I havent taken anything else.. I am still so naseous, gagging, stomach pains, heart palps..and I am def not pregnant or anything like that so I cant find any other cause for all of this.. Is there anything i can do to get this medicine out of my system.
Avatar m tn The doctor also gave me a script for 40mg of generic protonix and sent me on my way. So I've been on the stuff for 5 days now, and I feel nauseous every time I eat (which I was not feeling before) and generally feel like my stomach just refuses to settle. Does anyone else have this experience with protonix? I previously had received a script from my GP for prescription nexium earlier in the year, which worked great and I don't remember any side effects.
Avatar f tn I guess while on Protonix, and feeling so well, I took advantage of that and ate my chocolate, coffee, and spicy foods. I am not a big eater. I watch my diet, exercise, and am in good shape. I guess I feel "entitled" to a few foods that I love. Don't many of us eat what we like if we are being treated successfully? I read so many posts that say, I can eat anything I you stay on the GERD diet even when you are feeling well on your med's? Thanks again for your support!
Avatar n tn i am wondering if any one in the prove 1 trial with the xv950 was on either a proton pump inhibitor ( prevacid,prilosec, protonix, nexium , aciphex) or a h2 blocker (zantac pepcid tagamet axid ) thanks chuck
1460967 tn?1512404738 Dr Appointment went great! Starting protonix hopefully that will fix my heart burn!!! It feels like my esophagus is eating itself! Measuring right on track (one week ahead 32)….ready to hold this little munchkin already! Can not wait till September!!
1274110 tn?1270792161 I came off of Imdur 60 mg twice a day and a nitro patch. It was working but now I get real bad heartburn and my GERD (acid reflux) is back. Has any one had a similar experience? Here is a listing of my meds. Any help appreciated.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor, I received a abdominal ultrasound (specifically gall bladder and liver) which came back normal. He prescribed a muscle relaxer for the back and Protonix for the stomach. A few weeks later, I went out for dinner and drinks and sure enough the nausea came back. I had an EGD done of esophogus, stomach and duodenal. Everything came back normal and the Dr. said this was probably GERD causing this since I do suffer from Acid reflux.
Avatar n tn about 10% of people will feel some sort of side effect from Reglan, mostly fatigue and possibly restlessness. Have you tried any other class of drug? PPIs, like Protonix or Nexium, or H2-inhibitors, like Zantac or Pepcid? (For the record, PPIs also strengthen the LES, although they shut down production of acid instead of increasing the gastric contractions.) Usually Reglan is reserved for people with gastric motility issues. Have you had a gastric emptying exam? If so, what was the result?
Avatar m tn And it was only once then. It just happened so suddenly, I was breathing find and then I lie down and immediately begin experiencing problems. I also have terriible posture and spend 5+ hours a day using the computer, sitting not up straight in a chair, not sure if that has anything to do with it either.
Avatar n tn Prevacid, Nexium, Protonix, Aciphex, Zantac, and Pepcid are all used to treat reflux. You can ask you doctor who will know best which one is least likely to cause you dizzyness.
Avatar n tn After extensive research, I found literature on the internet that suggested Sinus problems and GERD can be related and both can contribute to bad breath. I tried Prilosec OTC and it worked!!! So far, so good. My breath has improved around 40%-50%. So, the problem is definitely GERD. I've elevated my bed to around 6 inches and this is the only thing I'm doing currently other than stop drinking coffee completely! No medications and would rather stay away from them. Now, the question.
Avatar n tn Day after when don't take the pill feel much better but acid taste starts to come back. Why do these drugs cause nausea. Tried pepcid and Zantac and got very bad headaches. Any suggestions? Don't know where to turn.
Avatar n tn Seem to be much better when I take care of my stomach with Pepcid AC and Rolaids. I can get a nasty, strong series of them if I have a somewhat full stomach and lie or lean on my left side. I get mild ones often while on left side. I am not just "feeling them more" on my left side. Had a run of them for several hours at high altitude after a big meal (every so many beats). Get a few close behind each other when exercising. 2. General difficulty breathing.
Avatar n tn Reflux and a hiatal hernia have been causing similar symptoms for me since Feb. I've taken prilosec, protonix, pepcid, zantac, reglan. Now I am trying nexium and baclofen. The baclofen was prescribed to control chronic cough and hoarseness, but I am reluctant to take it because it makes me drowsy. Does anyone else have the same trouble with baclofen? Dr. also suggested repeating an endoscopy with a 48 hr. pH test.
Avatar f tn My doc told me to use tums and pepcid. Also benadryl is very effective for anxiety in pregnancy and was recommended to me by doc, helped me a lot, only took when i needed to.
1210142 tn?1266080631 Taking Diltiazem, Lisinopril, Aspirin and Ranitidine as well. Have been having constant stomach and chest pains and the doctors are not able to find the cause- at least they don’t think it is a cardiac one./the chest pains/ My gastroenterologist suggested I stop taking Ranitidine and switch to Pantroprazole. I have read a lot about the interaction between Plavix and PPI’s but he thinks only Omeprazole have more effect on Plavix, not Pantoprazole.
379229 tn?1208643019 I cut the sodas out and fast food. So? What do you think? I have had the blood tests, xrays and EKGs and a stress test. Nothing abnormal except normal abonomalities.... Does the synthyroid need to be adjusted not only for the levels in a person but for the person's weight??? I don't have high blood pressure, mine runs low normally. The last visit to the ER said I had gastritis and they did all kinds of blood tests.
Avatar n tn That will at times cause extreme pain that goes right to the back. I take protonix for the GERD and gastritis. It's been two weeks and I feel great!
Avatar m tn COPD is not common in a brief period of smoking but is likely with prolonged smoking. Acid reducers like Zantac, Pepcid and Tagamet as well as PPI proton pump inhibitors like Prevacid Protonix and Aciphex commonly help acid reflux. Valium and other benzodiazepines help anxiety. With respect to diarrhea, dexadrine commonly causes that side effect, and many others do as well.
Avatar m tn I am getting a second opinion because think I should have another scope. Anyway, try some pepcid and try to stay away from the ppi if possible. They are very hard to stop after long term use and I think that they make it more difficult to digest your food. I notice I burp alot since I have been on mine. Also, try eating small meals frequently. That may help any inflammation heal. Also, stay away from caffine, chocolate, colas, tomato sauce and spicy foods as they may irritate you more.
Avatar n tn The only one suggested is a combination of Bismuth, metronidazole, tetracycline and an H2-blocker (i.e. Pepcid or Zantac). If amoxcillin is a problem, you can consider the regimen outlined above, or a combination of metronidazole/biaxin/PPI. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential. This answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - the information presented is for patient education only.
Avatar n tn poodle has been upper and lower bleeding for 2 days. She's on pepcid BID.
Avatar n tn , where the pain is real bad, I get extremely nauseous and a fever. He just issues me Protonix and tells me to relax. Makes me feel like a hypochrondriac. Somethings's just not right...
Avatar m tn ) I talked to her about the Prevacid and she advised me to quit taking it and manage the reflux w/Pepcid AC or Pepcid Complete over the counter, she advised 1 in AM and 2 in PM. The package insert says not to take more than 2 in 24 hour period. For 6 days followed package and did not take more than 2/24 hrs and slowly noticed a decrease of the palpatations. Today there was increase of acid so I followed the Internists directive that I could take 3/24hrs one in AM and two PM...
Avatar f tn I will anxiously await any and all replys. I am living on Pepcid now with little relief. My Pharmacy puts Protonix at $737. for 180 40mg.tabs of Protonix and $570 for Pantoprazole.
Avatar m tn You can also take note of what you eat,when you eat and the consequences of such so you can finetune your lifetstle and diet to avoid discomfort. Nexium and Protonix of the world could shut down too much of the stomach acid production to the extent when you eat again,you suffer from too little acid to digest your food and poorly digested food would be passed on to the intestines and mingle with bacteria to form gas,and cause infatulence.
Avatar n tn There is also a small area right above my belly button that is somewhat tight, but this has been present for years. I have been taking Pepcid Complete and Pepto-Bismol on and off since the beginning.
