Common Questions and Answers about Zantac and nexium


Avatar m tn I am trying to find out if it is safe to take Nexium and Zantac together. I also take Xanax 1mg. I have GERDS and Barrett's Esophogus. I don't have indigestion, because I am taking the NEXIUM 40mg. , I was wondering if it is safe to take Zantac 75mg. with it. I have been getting these little pinpoint pimple like things in my mouth and on the roof of my mouth, sides, and the back of my tongue. My doctor said it might be my stomach causing these little pimples, but he never answered me.
Avatar m tn Can you please tell me if you can take Nexium 40mg. and Zantac 75mg. together or on the same day. My GI doctor has me on Nexium 40mg. and my PCP wants me to take Zantac 75mg. at night before I go to bed. Is it safe, and can I take it with Xanax 1mg. I have GERDS and Barrett's Esophagus. And they both think it mjght be causing these little pinpoint pimples in my mouth, tongue, and throat.
Avatar m tn Been taking Zantac effervescent regularly and have tried every other drug known to man but the doctor suggested we try 20mg Nexium a day to see if that helps. It has, but after 10 days now I seem to be getting worse again. Also started taking Gaviscon (again) before meals. The question is how long do we take the Nexium? permenently, or stop when I feel better? the doctor was vague abd said the usual; come back in 2 weeks and let me know how you are. Anybody have any side affects?
99627 tn?1301274552 They diagnosed him with Acid Reflux and prescribed Zantac. I gave it to him this morning and I think it made him very sleepy. He has not been spitting as much today. I just want to hear other peoples experiences with Zantac. Has anyone used Zantac? Is it safe? Doctor said it is safe, but I want to make sure.
Avatar f tn I went through your delemna. Actually, both Nexium and Prilosec block an enzyme that makes Plavix work. Pepcid and Zantac were suggested acid controlling drugs instead.
Avatar n tn I started taking Zantac 150 and it seemed okay but I started have occasional nausea and sharp pains in the stomach area. My Internal Medicine doctor advised the ulcer is being aggravated by the acid which is causing nausea and pain, the Zantac was not strong enough. She prescribed Protonix 40mg twice a day, I have been on that and feel great; no fatigue, no nausea, no pain!
Avatar n tn can nemxium and then zantac cause pain under the rib cage left side under chest. could it have caused ulcerative stomatitis. when i don't eat apples it is a little relieved.
88793 tn?1290230777 I called her but the lady at the receiption called me back and said increased the Nexium 2 tablets twice a day and take some Mucaine think liquid as well. If I increased, it is Nexium 80mg twice a day? Plus Zantac 150mg and Plus Mucaine? Am I listened wrong? Or anyone here with that dosage safe? Very confuse and depress! Thanks for looking at my post.

Avatar n tn I feel like it is making me more nasueas and queasy than Prevacid. I was taking 40 mg of Nexium daily and have just switched to 30 mg daily of Prevacid.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, the Prevacid didn't work so well and after much fanagaling I got back on Nexium. It took two weeks for Nexium to finally kick in and it was effective for about two weeks. Now I'm I have a constant pain radiating from my chest and what seems like the middle of my back (heartburn I guess). I've made an appointment with my specialist but the visit is two months away. Does anybody have any advice on what I should do? Should I wait for two months and just deal with the discomfort?
Avatar n tn Yesterday however, I had a visit with my OBGYN who is completely against nexium, prilosec or any other drug except for zantac. I tried taking zantac, but I do not feel any relief whatsoever. I consulted pharmacists and other doctors who clearly state that it is safe to take nexium during pregnancy. I am sure I am not the only pregnant woman with this problem, can someone please advise as to whether nexium is safe to take during pregnancy and if you actually took it and your babies are healthy.
Avatar m tn Zantac is what's known as an H2 Blocker and used to be a prescription med. It was introduced before Prevacid, Nexium, and the other PPI's. Definitely take it and see if it helps. Augment it with chewable Maalox or Tums if you really need to. And if Zantac doesn't work you could try Pepcid.
213739 tn?1215489609 that showed severe esophagitis, an ulcer, lots of erosion 'Bad spots' as they called them, and an inflamed dueodenum. They immediately put him on Nexium and he's been on adult Nexium 20 mg three times per day for the past 21 months. He does not eat solids. He drinks Pediasure and will eat babyfood bananas but not consistently. At his 3 year check-up, I asked his Ped. if I could wean him off of the Nexium. She said not until he was eating a wide variety of solids.
Avatar n tn Do you take any medications ? I had stomach and gas problems on celexa, zoloft, nexium , acifex and problems when taking alot of fish oil ? ConcernedLady do you know if its ok to combine licorice with protonix and pepsid ? I have read that licorice is an antidepressant also .
Avatar n tn You can do some research online about Nexium and immune suppression and see what turns up. Google is a great search engine. I haven't found anything that indicates immune system suppression but there are a considerable number of side effects to careful about. Those side effects can lead to a decline in overall health. I took Nexium for 10 weeks and I couldn't tolerate it at 40mg. It really messes my system up. Although I may try to use the 20 mg. My vision is definitely affected by Nexium.
168348 tn?1379360675 Our GI wanted to give me samples of it for Jenna since my copay went up to 100 for the Protonix and I asked him what it compared to and that is what he told me, needless to say we did not change meds since the Protonix was working fine, I didnt want to risk changing meds.
Avatar n tn I tried all the overcounter anacids, zantac, carafat, and finally prilosec and Nexium. I have been on Nexium for 15 years (give or take). Started at 40mg, went to 80mg about 8 years ago and just recently (nov '08) was put on 120mg. I am concerned about the dosage and log term affects. I have been seeing a nutritionist for just over a year and she has me on many digestive supplements (I have ulcerative colitis as well), herbs, pro-biotics and vitamins (B-12, B-complex, zinc).
2089297 tn?1332720394 Meanwhile, millions of people around the world are taking acid suppressing drugs that not only fail to address the underlying causes of heartburn and GERD, but put them at risk of serious (and even life-threatening) conditions.
Avatar n tn 7/23/03 i have gerd and a non-noticeable small hiatal hernia.i was taking zantac 150 for many years and now i am taking nexium. i seem to have gastric distress in abdomen,stomach and gi tract,almost daily, lately. was more or less under control a few weeks ago. i am 66 yrs. old. i felt my abd.distress may have been from taking zocor for cholesterol. tried other statins in the past and had similar response with abd.distress. much gas.mostly at distal end of esophagitis.
Avatar m tn I have a hiatus hernia and gerd and I take nexium. Recently I started coughing ?acid or saliva while sleeping. It is annoying and wakes me up. However I find it is relieved by emptying my bladder, why is this? Do I need to worry?
Avatar n tn I was just saying how I'm trying to avoid heartburn, being off Nexium and all. But, nevermind, I looked it up and found out Xanax does wear away the area where the stomach meets the esophagus.
Avatar f tn Not sure about Zante but pepcid and nexium is ok.
Avatar n tn for abdominal pain,ache and heartburn and have lost weight as from this condition I found no comfort in Mylanta,Tums, Zantac and or Nexium I read on this board some helpful hollistic approaches and if I am unable to get relief soon, I will try as well,.
Avatar n tn I do have GERD that keeps me up at night and Zantac is no longer helping. I'm terrified of going through the yeast thing again. Has anyone had an problems with Prilosec or Nexium?
Avatar f tn I'm on Nexium, 20 mg a day, and have been for 5 years. Within the last six months they diagnosed me with PVCs, 8500 a day on average, when I never had them before. Naturally I'd like to get rid of the scary things. But how can you just go off Prilosec or Prevacid without getting acid rebound? I'd like to get off it because too little stomach acid can cause anemia, osteoporosis, and B12 deficiency. PPIs have been implicated in all of these.
Avatar n tn I came across a happenstance. I was dx with Gerd in 1999 and was on zantac which after much time cleared up and zantac was stopped. Starting in 2001 I happened to get an SVT episode. In 2006 I had an afib episode and would have about 5 with each progressing year treated with verapamil "pill in the pocket".
Avatar m tn I have read that allergy meds combined with Zantac or Nexium help as well as the thyroid hormone. Read the post here about Hives and Hashimoto's. I am using Vaseline, which works much better than lotion.
