Taking protonix and zantac together

Common Questions and Answers about Taking protonix and zantac together


Avatar m tn The chiropractor said that I don't have an injury, but fascia...itis in neck and shoulder. The only meds I'm on now are protonix for reflux, and clonodine for hot flashes, and wellbutrin. If it was rebound pain from getting off pain meds, I would think it would subside a little every now and then. Anyone know about this possibly being a side effect of taking protonix?
Avatar n tn alot of the foods that I eat seem to contain gas. One recommend garlic, ginger and orange peel, boil together and drink real hot, that worked for a while, but then the gas pain conitnued. Any more suggestions from any one will be highly appreciated. Thanks. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/337994'>Stomach Gas and Arrythmia</a>.
620923 tn?1452919248 My blood work is all normal except for my C-reactive protien and total protien were high, but my white blood cell count was normal. Ive been on prilosec, previced, zantac, and im currently on protonix and NuLev. I take NuLev 6 times a day to keep my food down. Ive been "diagnosed" with lactose intolerance and acid reflux but again there was no evidence of any of those conditions.
Avatar f tn So about 1 month of experiencing the fib and bad stomach I started taking 150mg of Zantac for my stomach, you can guess the rest, the day after taking the zantac the fibs were gone. I know Dr's say there is no connection but after reading your note and the many replies I had to add my own two cents.
Avatar n tn We talked about the next step and after talking for quite awhile, she feels I'm a canddiate for Protonix and perhaps Paxil to calm the anxiety this has caused. I know you take Protonix Jenn and like it. The nurse did explain that what works for one may not work for another. She herself takes Protonix and likes it alot. She has bad reflux and the Protonix has improved her quality of life.
Avatar m tn worsened IBS - bad abdominal cramps (caused by Nexium together with fever and Zantac) a white-coated and burning tongue (caused by Prevacid, Zantac, Protonix, Pepcid, Riopan). I'd like to know if anybody has experienced intollerance to the various antireflux medicines similar to mine. Have you ever had a severely burning tongue caused by them?
Avatar f tn abdominal ultrasound normal, several EKG's normal, Echocardiogram showing MItral Valve Prolapse, Endoscopy showing gastritis, eosinophilic esophagitis, incompetent LES. I have been taking Achipex in the AM and Zantac in the PM. Plus really watching what I am eating. It seems to be OK for awhile and then like out of the blue I will get one of these attacks. I'm not sure what else to try, the Dr's haven't been very helpful.
Avatar n tn I dropped six pounds (and have 40 more to go); I sit up straight; I sit less and stand more; I am taking an herbal heart supplement with magnesium and calcium in it, three times a day; I began yoga, three times a week; I eat very little FAT now, other than nuts and olive oil. I know this is not the way everyone wants to live, but one the days that I do all these things, I feel amazing and the palpitations are few and far between. The ones I do have now are very mild, and don't make me dizzy.
Avatar n tn she complained that she wanted to eat but eating made her stomach hurt. The Zantac was given as a trial and it did help. She regained the weight she lost and more....to 112 pounds. Every time we stop the Zantac she starts losing weight again....I'm going to have to start it again since her weight has dropped again from 112 to 103....she says she cannot eat. She does not seem to have the typical behavior patterns of anorexia, and she claims she wants to eat. When on the Zantac, she does eat!
Avatar n tn Dr. switched me to Protonix, and it seemed to help my stomach ache, but not the chest pain, tightness, and the feeling of something stuck in middle of my chest is still there. My appitite got a little bit better, but still cannot be compared to before. I never had any GI symptoms before. My resting Heartbeat dropped from 81 to 68, BP dropped 118/78 to 96/60. I did some research, and wondering maybe I 1) developed hiatal hernia when falling on that water ride and got hit by bag?
170935 tn?1225374676 I've asked my cardiologist and my Gastro doc about them being tied together and they both deny it! I think its related to the vegal nerve. When my stomach, esophagus spasms, I get the palpitations. It is really unnerving and very frightening for me, as I have never felt anything like it before. I've been to the ER twice because I thought I was having a heart attack. I had the EKG's, Stress Test, and even an arteriogram. All showing a perfectly healthy heart.
Avatar f tn This would help with the heartburn which would then help with the anxiety. If after 2 weeks on Prilosec and/or 4 weeks of taking Zantac (don't take them at the same time because they are the same thing, just take one or the other, or in my case take one first and then the other) my symptoms went away. I also chose to eat things that wouldn't irritate my stomach (I stayed away from caffeine, fried food, acidic food, pop, etc.). The bad news is that heartburn and anxiety come and go.
Avatar m tn Along with the Xanax, for the 5 years, my doctor had me taking 80mgs daily of a drug called Protonix which is a PPI...like Prilosec or Zantac. As I said...I'm not a doctor and I fully trusted her to care for my health...was that ever the wrong idea. Last year is when I finally began to research what PPI's actually do. They shut down acid production in your stomac which is a good thing for short term and a peson is only supposed to take 15mgs a day for no longer than 2 weeks...
200220 tn?1361955154 A week ago I started having anxiety and have had it every day since. I also started on that day Protonix 40 mg. I don't think that would interfer with the levothyroxine. I was taking it in the am but switched to pm and it really didn't make a difference. It does help me with my stomach pain. I went to my MD today and absolutely got no help. She is sending me to a GI doctor about my stomach. I am about at my wits end with the anxiety and not knowing what is causing it.
221122 tn?1323014865 I took Prilosec for six months with no changes in my pvc's. Prilosec didn't work so they switched me to Protonix and I have been taking it since June. I haven't noticed anything until recently so I'm not sure it is related. I went 4 months with no problems. Of course my doctor assured me that Protonix wouldn't bother my heart. I'm going to try taking it every other day now because the reflux is so much better.
Avatar f tn It seems to help if I take several tums, but I'm not convinced it's my hernia since I have never had this feeling before (other than when taking a large pill). I quit smoking 2 years ago, and have been vaping ever since (down to 6mg and no diacetyl). I'm also not convinced its that either, since I'd been doing it so long before these symptoms appeared, but who knows. Thinking about having an endoscopy, but will start logging what I ate on the days I have this and see if I can make a connection.
Avatar f tn i cant eat, drink, sleep, walk, sit or anything. the pills dotn help, NOTHING helps. and i am so sick that i dont even feel like taking a shower. i am such a mess. i dont wanna fix up, get out of the house, even mustache is growing out and i havent groomed myself. i hate this. my hearburn is killing me, i am constipated. i just wanna be normal . at least have one hour of normal everyday to be able to clean the house, cook for my daughter and take a shower. my house is a MESS!
Avatar m tn I can hardly eat anything, cause I always feel full, but at the same time, I feel hungry, sometimes I have hunger pains, cause I'm starving and feel full. Carbonated drinks are out of the question. I have had an upper GI & endoscopy return normal Jan 08, no acid reflux, no hiatal hernia.
Avatar n tn I took the over-the-counter for 2 days, had a slice of pizza, and had the WORST heartburn. I stopped the Prilosec, and took Zantac for a couple days - nothing. Then I stopped taking everything and for the next few days felt pretty good. I saw a naturopath, changed my diet completely, elevated my bed, lost weight, etc. About a week later, the sore throat started, along with a cough, and the choking sensation again. I saw an ENT, and he looked through my nose and down my throat.
Avatar n tn I inform my doctors of the side effects of the medications and continuouly, I hear it is impossibl and continue taking it because it is to help prevent this illness. I don't want anything to prevent a illness that I may never have but have other problems occurring from what was prescribe. This is a serious problem that needs to be address.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar n tn I ave had way too many surgeries & tests to know that this in not uncommon. I got to the point where I tell them to write down what their diagnosis is because I won't remember it. I had the upper cope test before my GB surgery & he wrote down "IBS..Learn how to relax...need anti-depressants for the pain." I got mad too. I went back to my GP & he too agreed with me that it wasn't IBS or stress related.
2121656 tn?1395678349 I did try to stop taking now on protonix for 3 days on a low fat diet and experienced, indigestion, GERD and nausea, in which I was forced into starting them up again due to the discomfort & not knowing how long I will have to deal with the unpleasant experience. Also, being scared that it would cause other medical issue's pertaining to my digestive system or esophagus. Please advise. I know this is a long post, as well as hard it was to share with someone I don't know.
Avatar n tn He put me on a PPI (Protonix) and said if it didn't help he would order and upper GI series. The PPI actually helped for about a year, but on occasion, sumptoms would flare back up and I would go back on the PPI. This has been going on for 3 years now. Recently, I spent Christmas Eve in ER with what I thought was a heart attack. I presented to my hospital with shortness of breath, clamy, chest pain that radiated from behind my sternum and into the back, severe bloating.
Avatar n tn The treatment includes things like Prilosec and/or Protonix, coupled with Zantac or the equivalent and a change in diet. The process involved higher doses of meds than regular reflux (GERD) and there is a surgical option if you aren't getting much better in a year or so. here's an article from Columbia University: www.entcolumbia.org/lprd.
544341 tn?1234992477 All 4 of my boys had reflux but my youngest 2 were the worst. They had to be on combos of meds together. Prevacid in the morning and zantac at night along with that we did carafate every few hours and a motility drug every few hours. Along with prethickened formula. Nathan was allergic to dairy & soy protein so he was on a prescription formula called Neocate for the longest time. He then went to an OTC hypallergenic formula.
Avatar n tn She is also on Protonix 2x a day 40mg, and also tried Carafate and Zantac, She has only been able to eat breads and today we tried Rice pasta, it seemed to hold in her stomach somewhat. My friend who is a Pharmacists said that sometimes Erythromycin is used to treat motility problems small doses 3 to 5 mg per kilo of weight. You might want to try that I am going to try get that for my daughter. Hopefully she can hold it down. Let me know if you find out anything.
Avatar n tn It provided some relief, but I still experienced episodes every few weeks. I have since quit taking the Zantac and am still experiencing the problem. Meat and fast eating do seem to bring the episodes on, but sometimes I can just be drinking something and it will happen (though usually not as severe). Is this something normally assiociated with hiatial hernia, or might I have something else wrong?
Avatar n tn as soon as I feel the back pain I have been getting up and taking advil that seems to help, but what is causing these unbarealbe pains? And the advil only seem to dull it, I am unable to find a positions to calm it...I have been told it could be gall stones..as the are hereditary and run in my family..
530191 tn?1214166411 Right now I'm on my 3rd dose of prednisone(4 a day x 3 days , 2 a day x 4 days) and taking hydroxizine at night and zyrtec and plaquenil in the morning. Without the prednisone it seems as though the meds are non-existent. I have had several noticable bouts of the angiodema that made me look like something out of a Star Wars bar scene. I get these damn things from my feet to my head and they not only itch but they burn and it feels like my skin isn't mine. This is driving me crazy.
