Can I Take Prilosec After I Eat
Can i take nexium (esomeprazole) after eating? I forgot to take it before i ate and i get bad acid reflux at night if i don't take it.
Yes, but . . .: Check out http://www.drugs.com/nexium.html which states that Nexium (esomeprazole) is best taken at least an hour before a meal. But the fact is you only take one a day, not before every meal, so if you feel you need it, then take it (assuming it's been a few hrs since you ate). Beware of potential complications from taking more than 8wks. Another option is to try calcium carbonate eg Tums/Rolaids ...Read more

Can i eat after taking milk of magnesia being that i feel nauseous and can i take Zantac (ranitidine) too?
Yes: Milk of Magnesia (MOM) will coat your stomach and help loosen your stool, so it is often used in the setting of constipation or upset stomach. Zantac (ranitidine) is a histamine blocker medication that is used to reduce the stomach's secretion of gastric acid. Both may be taken safely together, though you may have better results from the Zantac (ranitidine) taking it a half hour before or after the MOM. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's best to be: Taken on an empty stomach, to insure consistent absorption. However, if you take it under the same conditions each day, and then check the levels, you can adjust the dose if necessary until it's appropriate.

I have constant reflux, and take omeprazole. What can I use to treat my breathe. After I eat/drink anything i have a constant taste of what I had. ?
Breath: Make sure you're brushing your tongue and gums. Also, really gargle well (I find peroxide and water mixed in equal portions) twice daily. See the dentist to check for tooth decay which can lead to bad breath. Reflux can cause tooth decay. An "alternative" treatment would be something called activated charcoal. ...Read more
I'm taking omeprazole 20mg for gerd. I get extremely nauseated , but only after i eat. This happens almost every time. Is this ok?
Doctor can evaluate: A doctor can evaluate to see what might be going on. Maybe there is a gallstone or gall bladder sludge problem. Sometimes the gerd or gastritis is still happening despite taking the medication. The stomach emptying time may be taking too long. A GI specialist can help figure things out, try additional treatments, and/or do an upper endoscopy to see how things look in the esophagus and stomach. ...Read more
I have severe to light pain in my stomach? I have taken omeprazole, which didn't work. It hurts really bad sometimes after i eat, and sometimes it starts up on its own. There are times when i can't even touch my stomach because of the pain. It has been go
Unfortunately : Unfortunately the description of your symptoms does not allow me to provide a very educated suggestion as to the cause of your problems. In particular, the causes for abdominal pain can be quite diverse, ranging from an "internal organ" problem, such as gallbladder, intestine, pancreas, urological, to musculoskeletal, such as a hernia, to neurological, such as a pinched nerve or neuralgia due to infection. In order to provide a more logical path to working out the cause of your pain, one would want to know about the nature of your pain (characterize it, sharp, dull, constant, crampy, associated with eating, change with movement, referred pain), and associated symptoms, such as the presence or absence of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, distention, weight loss, other medical history. The fact that you stated that you have pain after you eat, may point to this being a gallbladder problem, which is a very common problem, especially amongst women in the 30-40s. That Omeprazole did not help goes along with a gallbladder problem, since Omeprazole is an antacid. Gallstones cause pain after eating, particularly with fatty goods, which normally stimulate the gallbladder which stores bile, to squeeze and dump the bile into the intestines to assist with digestion. If there is a gallstone(s), then the gallbladder is squeezing against resistance/obstruction, and this causes a typical crampy mid-abdominal pain that starts about 20-30 minutes after eating and lasts for a few hours. The pain may travel to the back. In order to validate this diagnosis, you will need some additional testing including ultrasound, liver function tests, tests for pancreatitis (amylase and lipase), urine tests. ...Read more
On 80mg.Omeprazole for 5 days with no change in mucous or sore throat. Worse after i eat. Any ideas? Don't have heartburn at all.
Post nasal drip: Omeprazole is used to reduce stomach acid, thus reducing heartburn. It will not affect mucous which is probably post nasal drip causing your throat to be sore. You'll need to figure out if the mucous is a result of allergy to pollen, a cold or perhaps sinus infection, and treat accordingly. ...Read more

Gastritis/food poisoning what to take and eat. I believe i ate seafood last friday which caused this. i've been taking tylenol, pepto, prilosec?
Food poisoning : Since last Friday after eating seafood it is probably a food poisoning. If you have diarrhea that suggest food poisoning since you do not get diarrhea with gastritis. If there is blood in a loose stool you need a culture from the stool. Food poisoning goes away on its own within days to weeks. See your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
