Common Questions and Answers about Zantac 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 Like I said, it goes Zantac, Prilosec, Prevacid and then Nexium. I never had a problem with Zantac other than it tastes REALLY bad so if you can, go to Osco and get it flavored grape- we tried several flavors and the grape covered the aweful mint taste the best. My niece is also on Zantac right now with no problems.
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 would Nexium pose the same problems for her?
88793 tn?1290230777 My gastro Dr prescribed Nexium 40mg twice a day before the gastroscopy. Plus Zantac 150mg before bed. After the gastroscopy, the burns started in my mouth and tongue. 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?

Avatar m tn how do i get lower doses of nexium of I'm trying to wean off
Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any side effects on Nexium? 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 Today my dad bought me some Zantac 150 from the store. Is it okay if I try this for awhile? Are there any side effects? Is it even meant for Acid Reflux? It mostly talks heartburn Thanks!
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 It is safe to take Nexium forever. Nexium is the newest of the class of drugs called Proton Pump Inhibitors. It is pretty much the same as Prilosec. Others include Prevacid, Protonix,Aciphex. This class of drugs has been shown to be safe when taken long term. People have taken these drugs for as long as 11 years without any longterm problems. Another option for you is Antireflux surgery or Laparoscopic Fundoplication.
Avatar n tn By now I have had two endoscopys, many blood work visits and been through at least ten different medications the names of which I don't even remember. At the moment I'm on nexium and this has helped with the acids coming up my esophagus, but at least two times a week I'll eat something and have it in my stomach for hours.
168348 tn?1379360675 Zegrid is the equivalent to Nexium. 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).
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 f tn Not sure about Zante but pepcid and nexium is ok.
910435 tn?1296752210 Start taking Nexium again and QUIT stopping it when feeling good! Reminder to self: Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) !!
Avatar f tn Hi there, I have been taking Lipitor (Simvastatim is generic) and Nexium, Zantac for the past 10 years. The one is for high Cholestorol and the other to treat GERD. It should not be a problem.
Avatar f tn I'm 27 weeks and heartburn and acid reflux is creeping in I take Zantac 75 and tums. Any other suggestions?
Avatar n tn I went to a GI and she prescribed me with nexium in the morning (I usually take nexium everytime my gerd acts up) and zantac in the evening before bedtime. The next day, we went to my pulmonologist for my routine checkup, since I had primary spontaneous pneumothorax last november.
Avatar n tn can acid reducing meds ie. nexium,zantac etc. cause stomach pain such as tightness or cramping?
Avatar n tn Anyone else having issues,or any ideas to help. I am on nexium and zantac but it still hurts.
Avatar n tn Hi not sure what ur question is....I am sure the Dr that RX'd this testing knows about what meds u r on and if it would be an issue he would have advised u.... Let us know how it goes and what results u get.
