Does axid work better than Zantac (ranitidine) does?

In general or in you: Axid & Zantac (ranitidine) are 2 of many h2 blockers used to treat heartburn.

In large groups of patients, both are equally effective since they both work in same fashion. However, you may like one more than other (think of chevy vs dodge vs ford). ...Read more

Nizatidine > 6 Weeks: Nizatidine is generally safe to take for longer than 6 weeks. But, if you need to take it for 6 weeks or longer, your symptoms probably indicate that you should be under a doctor's care. If you're not, check in with your doctor. You can have an occasional drink, but alcohol will make your GI symptoms worse which is counter productive as to why you're taking the nizatidine. ...Read more

Which hard drink don't have harmful effect to peoples with uric axid (nizatidine) & high blood pressure?

Which hard drink don't have harmful effect to peoples with uric axid (nizatidine) & high blood pressure?

None: It is not the type of drink that is harmful to uric acid and blood pressure, but the alcohol in the drink.

My 5 month old has milk allergy and reflux. On neocate and axid (nizatidine) bidx 3 months. At 98% for weight, still in pain, refluxing.. Should we scope?

My 5 month old has milk allergy and reflux. On neocate and axid (nizatidine) bidx 3 months. At 98% for weight, still in pain, refluxing.. Should we scope?

Wrong forum: This is a complicated question that can't be answered on the internet. The fact that your baby is at the 98th percentile for weight is reassuring that there isn't a serious underlying process, but there isn't as much of a knee-jerk, cookbook approach to the practice of medicine as many people think. This is a decision for the pediatrician, allergist, and GI doctor who know your baby well. ...Read more
