Can Ranitidine Be Taken With Atenolol At Bedtime
I take Prilosec in morning and Zantac (ranitidine) at bedtime. Zantac (ranitidine) helped at night for a while. But now it isn't. What can I do.
Increase the prilose:
You may take an additional Prilosec at bedtime, or see your doctor for a rx strength
medication. An antacid as an additional
medication may also be helpful.

Atenolol is a relatively long-acting (24 hours) beta-blocker. Beta-blockers as a group of medications calm or slow the heart rate down. They stop the swings in hr from stress or nerves. If someone is on a good dose of a beta-blocker and are startled, the medication suppresses the pounding of your heart. It also won't allow the hr to climb with exercise. It's used to ...Read more
I eat lots of sugar before bedtime I wake up the next morning with a higher than usual HR. Why is this? HR upon waking 75+. I take atenolol daily 75mg
Diet/HR: Blood sugar elevations may or may not affect your heart rate especially if you are diabetic or pre- diabetic. I suggest a formal glucose tolerance test by your PCP and certainly modifying your diet, avoiding bedtime sugar loading. Call for formal blood testing and also have your thyroid function evaluated. ...Read more
My doc advised me to take 40mg pantoprazole twice a day and ranitidine 300 mg at bedtime. Is it safe for me?
It is not a standard of care in practice to combine ppi and h2 blocker. It has side effects but there is one study that shows some benefit in lowering the reflux but I don't suggest to do it, see here: addition of a h2 receptor antagonist to ppi improves acid control and decreases nocturnal acid breakthrough.

My doctor prescribed me ranitidine 500mg for my acid reflux. One pill before bedtime. Is that dose too high? I was going to get Zantac 150mg instead.
I take atenolol 50mg at bedtime for htn & having a lot of swelling in feet, legs in the evenings. Is it ok to split the dose 25 morning and 25 nigot?
It is a bit unusual: For Atenolol to cause significant fluid retention and edema. Splitting the dose will not make a difference. I suspect that the edema is actually from your diet or your hypertension not the medication. You need to discuss this with your health care provider. It could represent hypertension induced renal dysfunction. ...Read more

No: Ranitidine (like omeprazole) inhibits the liver enzyme 2c19 that Celexa (citalopram) requires for its metabolism. The combination could cause a build-up of Celexa (citalopram) in your system, exposing you to risks of serotonin syndrome and heart rhythm disturbances. I do not recommend using these two together. ...Read more
