Common Questions and Answers about Ranitidine vs zantac


Avatar n tn I had them about 7 years ago, they lasted about a year. I'm taking Zyrtec (once a day), Zantac (2 / day), Doxepin (150 mg @ bedtime), and Benadryl as needed. I had been on prednisone on and off since July but my doctor has taken me off of it (for obvious reasons). Unfortunately nothing I've taken other than prednisone has worked. My hives are particularly associated with pressure (underwear) - Since September i have worn a tank top under my clothes due to hives associated with wearing a bra.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I wonder if anyone has any suggestions to reduce acid in my 12-pound dog Mandy. Currently she's on Ranitidine (Zantac). She gets 1/4 of a 75mg tablet twice a day. Last night, for the first time in a long time, she enthusiastically ate her food. Then, within about 20 minutes of eating, she vomited. So I'm wondering if I can supplement the Ranitidine with anything else without threatening more damage to her kidneys. Lynne, you mentioned you give Darbie a Tums after she eats.
Avatar n tn It often requires chronic maintenance medical therapy with histamine receptor antagonists (such as ranitidine or zantac) or proton pump inhibitors (such as omeperazole or prilosec). Many patients who require chronic medical therapy opt for surgery with fundoplication. Prior to surgery further testing is required to confirm that the symptoms he has are in fact due only to GERD and not some other esophageal motility disorder. As with any other surgery, fundoplication has risks.
200220 tn?1361955154 I am taking Ranitidine, which my GP said is a mild antacid. He suggested I try it when I asked him if my chest pains might be esophagus or stomach related. The worst part of the endoscopy was that the doctor told me I have a hiatal hernia, and the bacterial infection. I mean, I'm glad to know, but at the same time, It's just more stuff wrong with me. Now my stomach feels worse! LOL!! The colonoscopy was the same thing. "We snipped a few things and sent them in for evaluation.
Avatar f tn From my understanding, she was additionally taking Zantac or something similar, 3 a day instead of the recommended 1 a day to help control the frequent vomiting. The first diagnosis for her was costochondritis, which is inflammation of the cartilage attaching the breast bone to the ribs.
Avatar n tn At 2 months he was diagosed with silent reflux and put on Zantac. He did very well for 1 week. He had his 2month shots and then spiraled out of control. He went to the hospital because he wasn't eating and his reflux seem extremely aggreviated. The hospital took adomial ex-rays (which were normal) and ran some blood tests that were normal. The hospital couldn't run certain tests because his blood kept clotting. His dose of Zantac was increased and he was put on Nutragamin formula.
97615 tn?1212682189 I have had CU for over 5+ years. Recently, I started taking Cetirizine (Zyrtec) and Ranitidine (Zantac). Weird combo, but according research Zyrtec is a H1 antagonist and Zantac is a H2 antagonist. When implementing both, they work better than just one. This combo has helped me for 2 days. I went into the doctor and she said that this is the safest cure for now. Supposedly, there are other treatments according to the DR.
530191 tn?1214166411 I was on that for seven years and finally got a sensitivity to it and it was no longer effective. With autoimmune urticaria vs. chronic idiopathic urticaria (which they said was what i had for eight of the ten years) I couldn't use antihistimines at all with effect, doxepin was the only one! Plaquenil is our next option. However using synthroid (synthetic thyroid) daily has done more for my hives than anything used thus far.
Avatar n tn 00, now my cat is worth that to me!! If it works, but get this, he lists Ranitidine/Zantac and it that it has good safety margin, well, I have a cofession to make. I have a colon condition, life long and it causes chronic constipation, yes, it is easy to say on line :) Lets just say all the fiber,water , laxitives, ect. don't do me much good. Well, I hadn't had heart burn or indigestion problems in years but a few months ago this started up.
Avatar n tn I've been on many different medications- zyrtec, allegra, doxepin, zantac, atarax. The doxepin when taken in higer doses makes me drowsy. Currently my reactions have become more severe- lasting for 2 days. I've been to 2 allergists who can't find out what the problem is Last year I was diagnosed with histoplasmosis, which is a fungal infection. I suspct my histo may be linked to the swelling of my lips and tongue. Has anyone else been affected with histoplasmos and was it linked to angiodema?
Avatar n tn As of dec my back gets this red spots that do look like bug bites, and as they go away the area seems a little darker than my skin. I will look up!
Avatar n tn They are Zantac, Tagamet, and Pepcid. However, there appears not to be a consensus of the joint H1 and H2 treatment showing definitive results. Either way, it is food for thought to discuss with your doctor. The one item that appears to have promise, but it sounds like you will need a doctor familiar with CIU / IACU is immunosuppresive therapy. Dr. Greaves specifically mentions Cyclosporine, and there is another therapy with a new drug called Plaquenil.
